Anthony Trupel is not "fugly". Not every male actor has to be "Chandler Massey levels of attractive". 

 

CM as gold standard of attractive actors.... Thanks for the great laugh! I love this board!

The huge problem with GayJ is that he is written as a 40 yo in terms of dialogue and 'advice.' It's all wrong. Even Hope, who was mature for her age, comes off as childish compared to him. 

 

And, seriously, Widge gets text about GayJ and doesn't say anything to anyone in the room. That is beyond terrible writing. Yes, Brad, we know your endgame for that episode was the ShEvil climbing Bad Santa's chimney with her trademark smirk  

 

It would've been better to halt the scene with a dose of reality and have all go to hospital. Even ShEvil could tag along to support her StallionRiding friend.

That was so stupid.  They stood there with all that talking - Ridge gets a text and can't even say "RJ is in the hospital...have to go."  on his way out????????

Oh and how about sanctimonious CoCoPuffs LYING that she didn't remember the accident. Some please flush that box of stale cereal after treating S2 like garbage, even though it was GramCrkr who was mastermind. Bad bad bad. It's this kind of stuff that makes H8 watching so darned satisfying. 

 

I sure how we see the amazing PD back on screen soon. She was in only 1 episode in June.

Another thing I noticed but forgot. LOL.  Why would Coco Lie??  Widge, your son asked me to drive, I did, and we were posting pictures to Instagram (or call it whatever), and the accident happened.  It was an accident.  Kind of like your mouth finding Quinn's mouth.  (honestly I so wish we could do a truly campy soap where you just totally read people for filth all the time).  On the upside, I did see a tear (I think) on Thorsten Kaye's face...it appeared he was trying to work today at one point.

The reveal was a waste of time just like the story was. Again Bradley hypes his mess for months and months only to have it fizzle. Sheila being involved is so SS(Gloria taking over Lauren's story). She wasn't even on the canvas and she is the one who exposes the secret after appearing in only a couple of episodes? Are you [!@#$%^&*] kiddding me? It should have been Brooke who blabbed it all or Katie since she had been on the warpath for no apparent reason.

I like your thinking - Here's an alternative: GayJ is hurt far more. Brooke, who isn't really an alcoholic, despite her 3 weeks of binge drinking, gets drunk. In front of everyone, she lashes out at Widge for not locking up his car - 'just another in a long-line of selfish, irresponsible behavior like when you were kissing Quinn before our wedding! Our wedding! In Australia!' Now that would be satisfying - complete with KKL amazing tears on demand.

 

Brooke is the ONLY one with right to reveal secret and to give us that emotional payoff. Not H8ie, The Vine, Gomer Pyle or ShEvil - for them it was salacious gossip. 

 

Cue: $B who thanks Quinn for doing him the greatest favor ever by getting Brooke to him. WyNot crying because Bad Santa made him 'feel' like a son and now he'll never get his stocking stuffed - a story that was wisely abandoned because a soap would never go there.

Ridge: "Why are you (Sheila) still here?"

 

Quinn: "Why is she (Sheila) still here?"

 

Yes, why was she still there. Sheila standing in the middle of the Forester mansion as the pillar of morality is laughable

 

Quinn lying saying the kisses meant nothing yet just the other week she was telling Ridge she was in love with him

 

Ridge rushes off to the hospital but doesnt bother to tell Eric that his grandson was hurt

I dont think its not a big deal. Nearly killing one's son bc you were too busy on social media deserves the wrath of said parents. She was scared of how Brooke and Ridge would react. She already knows what its like to have Ridge attack her. I totally understand why she lied. She's still a kid

Get rid of Shiela.  I can't stand watching since she came on.

I agree - from what I'm watching she just shows up and Lords over everyone - for no reason.  Someone just knock her in the head and put her in a trash can.  The one line I heard from Bad Santa the one day - when either Quinn or Ridge or both said "Why is she still HERE?"  And Bad Santa said, "No - she will stay.  I need someone to tell me the truth."  I laughed my ass off as she grinned evil in the background...so awfully bad.  They should have gone with an "Eric has a brain Tumor" when he did the whole Quinn thing....but now they REALLY should but they won't.  I'm sure Eric and Old Diva will be married by the end of month. 

 

Honestly what I really don't like - I did skip a bunch of years but Eric is now painted as the perfect old guy, was always perfect husband, and that Santa cheated alot.  Boy slept around.  He judges everyone but he cheated.  And back then it wasn't just a kiss.  He banged Brooke but apparently didn't remember his "vows" to Stephanie.

@Fevuh Yes. St Stephanie and Bad St Nick - the whole canvas views them as the epitome of grace, class and dignity. Too bad we have 25 years of footage that shows the opposite.

 

It's ironic that Brooke was always painted by the Forresters as someone when all she did was follow her very wide-open heart. She wasn't malicious and unscrupulous unlike those who judged her. 

 

HT loves to cry. Why on earth would H8ie be crying? Unless, of course, it was really about being betrayed by $B and she'll fee him back by nailing Count WyNot. And that hug between H8ie/Quinn - absolutely not believable

Sheila is the most interesting thing on this gorgeous trash. Seethe.

 

Did that Brooklyn accent mask Rena Sofer's inability to act? Because she's been bad all week.

 

I get why everyone hates Coco and RJ but they are exactly the type of teens soaps refuse to do anymore, actual young people played by reasonably talented actors.

She was never much of an actress on GH either - the writing and her chemistry with co-stars helped.

 

(I did like her on Loving, although she wasn't acting much of an actress there to say the least)

Rena Sofer isn't that bad. I have seen much worse. Her acting in this story has been bad. But I am sure it's more to do with her not buying this sh!t that we are being feed by Bradley Bell.

And during this storyline I realized how dumb Eric really is. He believed Quinn saying how she had changed yet Liam(when he finally remembered who he was) didn't buy her bull!

 

Liam smarter than Eric? There's something wrong there...

    • Well thank you. It most definitely is on my binge list and I am sure I will make a comment.
    • @I Am A Swede @Vee @vetsoapfan I'm glad Frazer is still in decent form...this is the closest we'll get to any real Sugden presence for the anniversary so I will enjoy it.  Chris Chittell says he tried a few years ago to get TPTB to bring Jane Hutcheson (Sandie) back as he enjoyed working with her. What might have been...
    • I had to make a thread for this after catching up with its first short season on HBO Max - it just began its second on Hulu/ABC. Sweet, earnest and very funny. Sheryl Lee Ralph's Emmy is well deserved after so many years of great work, but the entire ensemble crackles and Janelle James steals every scene as Ava.  
    • Hope you can add some more. My next contribution is Dear John on NBC. In the 1998/89 season it took Night Court's 9.30 pm Thurs slot following Cheers. Cheers was # 4 and Dear John a respectable #11. In it's 2nd season it kept the 9.30 pm slot till mid season when it was replaced by Grand. I believe NBC was under pressure from Carsey/Werner productions to place their new show in that plum slot (they supplied Cosby and A Different World) Dear John got moved to Wed 9.30 following Night Court. It finished #17 for the season but that average was bumped up from the Thurs showings. In 90/91 it retained the 9.30pm Wed slot but now followed a new show Fanelli Boys. Wed 9-10 Wk 1 1990/91 season ABC Doogie Howser #8 CBS Jake and the Fatman # 25 NBC fanelli Boys #42/Dear John # 52  Fanelli flopped and NBC moved Dear John to 9pm. By Jan 1990 Night Court was back to 9pm and Dear John was back to 9.30 before being shunted to 10.30 Saturday. It's overall ranking was #50 For it's final season it was given the 9pm Fri timeslot but was moved to 9.30 . It ranked #77. So it only worked with a strong lead in - timeslot hit.

Maybe they thought people would be fooled into watching a rerun. The Wheels rerun was truncated due to dreadful ratings. Originally all 5 episodes were going to be shown, but after dire ratings for ep 1 and 2, they showed a summary of eps 3&4 before playing the final episode.
