I just watched the last episode. So Bill puts it in Steffy's mind that Liam has a thing for Sally. I see her getting jealous, pushing Liam towards Sally and then will turn to Bill for comfort. Brooke will assume they are having an affair since Bill is keeping a secret from her which will cause her to turn to Ridge

 

That's pretty much what I was thinking when I saw those scenes. I could almost see Bill "seducing" Steffy just to stick it to Liam. Or, heavily hinting that something's going on to drive Liam crazy, without "technically" cheating on Brooke.

Would it matter? Like I said, we already know the dialogue outline for the Lame/Stuffy/$B/Brooke scenes for the next 3 months.

I have long felt like Brooke and Bill was B&B's attempt at Victor and Nikki. Thorsten Kaye is terrible and has no chemistry with KKL, so I actually didn't loathe Brill. However, the show is terrible and would need to do a major overhaul to keep me watching. I dislike almost the entire younger set, and sorry, but I don't care about the Spectras. Maybe if they hadn't killed off Macy and Darla. I do like Patrika Darbo.

 

I must say, stupid "betrayal" whining aside, I did enjoy seeing KKL yell at Bill. It's so unusual to hear her voice outside of the normal breathy or whining tones she uses. It actually makes me think that maybe she'd pull off a quality performance if the show ever gave her good material. Even mediocre actresses, like MTS and Susan Lucci, had moments, so she might be one of those.

KKL is very underrated as an actor - part of it has to do with the complete objectification and sex-hungry element of the character that just doesn't stop. I mean did she really need to be in the swimwear when she first questioned $B? No. Brooke is supposed to be a college-educated brilliant chemist and supposed to be smart. It should've happened years ago, but they should focus on that element - smart, businessperson and the voice of reason. Except for the Katie/$B thing, Brooke rarely does anything terrible - especially compared to every other character on the show (except for Lame). 

 

I still content PD should've been a recast Sally instead of this random Shirley person. They should dump Stall, Dumblita and CoCoPuffs and just keep S2 and Shirley. I still think moving Zombie and Sasha to Spectra would've been a good move or even Rick/Myrna - have them compete with Widge and C2 instead of being boxed in at FC.

Why is it taking forever to finish this ugly ass portrait?  Everyone else seems to be able to have theirs made at the drop of a dime
 
And Brooke needs to STFU. She is overreacting. I get her being mad but the yelling and hysterics is just too over the top for me. She said she gave up an entire life to marry Bill. Huh? What about her life has changed since that happened? Only thing is she isnt with Ridge and she didnt give that up. She left him bc he lied and cheated on her

I thought KKL was excellent during the rape story, but they REFUSE to give her good material. As you mentioned, they have long downplayed Brooke's being a businesswoman, not to mention ignore her chemist background. I would like to see that element of her persona again. What does she actually do at Forrester now? They have her looking over documents and such, but her actual job is unspecified. Is she in charge of the lab? Head of development? Brooke's Bedroom still going?

 

I personally felt the Deacon affair was when they took the character too far. The whoring around with Forresters could be forgiven since the Forrester men were willing participants, not the victims Stephanie portrayed them as. But Deacon and Brooke was vile due to the Bridget betrayal.

The Bells found a Formula type of writing.  Ashley on Y&R should be a chemist in a lab.  Brooke is the girl chemist in a lab.  No one notices this.  Jill and Katherine were the young woman vs. old woman on the show.  Brooke and Stephanie were the  young woman vs. old woman on the show.  Victor is the evil on Y&R, only better.  Don Diamont today - trying to be Victor Newman - only he's horrible.  On B&B - the two warring Fashion Houses - Stephanie vs. Sally.  Now it's Steffy Vs. Sally.  And have no really good actors that are black people on B&BB&B has done this for their entire tenure.  Need extraneous characters?  Hey, they had the Marones.  We have the Lavants whenever they show up.  We have Justin, the evil $Bill black guy that remains loyal.  We also have secretaries...one goes with Wyatt wherever he goes because she's his wife.  The one casting thing they've done so well is Steffy - more and more lip injections to look like Hunter Tylo.  Was Lisa Rinna ever on this show?  Steffy looks like she stuck her face in a beehive.   I saw 5 minutes this week, and did Brooke say to Steffy - "I thought you'd be happy about me being with Ridge?  I could be back with your Father."  And Steffy said something mindless..."So...are you?  Is that what you want?"  Is Steffy Brooke's daughter?  LOL.  I thought Taylor gave birth to her.  I know Taylor is Steffy's mother...but for Brooke to say - I thought you'd be glad I could be with your Father?  NOTHING MAKES SENSE.  LOL.  Just like everyone's love for both Quinn and Sheila.  You cannot have a memory of yesterday and watch this show.  Oh - and...Wyatt:  "Yo BRO.  you won't be sitting there in that chair LONG BRO!"  Liam/Lame-o:  " HEY BRO....KNOCK BEFORE YOU ENTER BRO!"  WYATT:  "REALLY BRO!? MY DAD.  MY DAD OWNS THIS COMPANY BRO!"  LIAM "RIGHT BRO BUT I OWN IT NOW BRO!"  Ok - so it's not quite that BAD - but it's so CLOSE it's not funny.

I noticed the Bell trademarks- Brooke being a chemist, Stephanie and Brooke being a, in my opinion, poor man's Katherine and Jill. The Bill Spencer as Victor thing is something I mentioned.  The issue for me is it's all awful. Bill's too cartoonish to be Victor in my opinion, though Victor's now a parody of a once interesting character. Brad Bell has no idea how to create great characters like his father did.  Brooke's family, the Logans, were like B&B's version of the Fosters, though with one brother and several sisters.

    • Hahahahaha!!! You did not!!!   Good to hear you are well, Vee.   Looks like I'll be forced to work partially for Shot 2 Day. Those will be cameo appearances and no lie...sick or not I will be a bitch. Moreso since a day delay is better than what the actual post office is doing with people's mail currently in our area (though it has thankfully started to go back to notice post-He Who Shall Not Be Named).
    • It's a strange thing to bring up 40 years later lol.  There has to be more to the story.  Maybe he didn't get paid, but GH's use of it helped it become popular, therefore helped record sales.  Idk, it seems like the actual use of it on GH and the popularity and eventual record sales would be worth more than royalties from a soap opera?  I guess ideally he'd get both, but GH certainly doesn't have the money to pay him now lol
    • Yep - and that’s when the ratings really started falling off. The episodes during the latter half of the dream season were frequently  no longer even in the top 15.   Ratings had even started to decline a bit at the end of the previous season (1984-85). How many more times could you break up/reunite the couples, or have the Ewings fighting for Ewing Oil? Bobby’s death was a chance to reinvent the show. But the new writers/producers blew it. And Lorimar and the network were more than happy to go back to the tried and true for the 1986-87 season. But the gas in that tank was almost gone. After one decent season following Bobby’s return, the quality of the show plummeted.   The finale was another missed opportunity - in this case, to wrap things up nicely and go out strongly. CBS still hadn’t officially cancelled it when production started on the final episode. Hagman was still hoping for another season. So they designed an episode which would bring back old characters, but not force the writers to explain where the returnees disappeared to in case of another season. So we got another dream. Ugh. Victoria Principal said at the time she was willing to return to put a “coda” on her stint as Pam, but she didn’t want to be part of another cliffhanger. We could have had a great reunion for Bobby and Pam had the production company been willing to make the call on the series ending.
    • It's very unfortunate that there was so much complaining and whining about the format. I often think that soap fans have no foresight in terms of what can happen down the road. Neither AMC nor OLTL were "my shows" (I grew up watching CBS soaps, for the most part) but I was eager to watch these shows, thinking that perhaps the show of support would encourage other producers to want to 'dust off' other cancelled soaps and revive them, on a less ratings-focused platform, where they could get a little more time to build and grow. Yes, Prospect Park was a mess, but there might have other production companies who might have gotten the impetus to join the trend, and they might not have been a mess. Who knows? And all those people saying "I would've watched if it had been streaming on Netflix". Well, Netflix cancels shows the fastest of all the major streamers, so there was no guarantee that these reboots would have been renewed. Hulu was hardly the hinterlands of streaming platforms. I wish that fans of these shows would take the time to think and ponder the possibility that a genre that skews as old as daytime soaps might not get another chance to see another soap stream anywhere other than in bootleg clips and episodes of varying degrees of quality now because there was so much moaning and whining on previous efforts.         And you're right, House Of Cards was extremely popular, so there obviously was a mainstream audience watching dramas on streaming platforms.   As The World Turns fans keep talking about when AOL provided a streaming platform for that show's episodes but I guess that was seen as acceptable since ATWT was still airing on a terrestrial broadcast platform, rather than solely in cyberspace?   It would be nice to see a day when ATWT, GL, etc. could be streamed on Paramount+ but we'd only get soap opera die-hard fans complaining about the shows not airing in their regular T.V. time-slots.
