Katie's an awful character. If she were played by someone not named Heather Tom she wouldn't have lasted a year.

 

and you would think it would count for something - that she's done all she's done for the character/material, but she's still treated like an afterthought. Mess.

Afterthought=Jacob Young.....he is best talent they have on the men's side and yet they waste him for the likes of overrated twit Scott Clifton and whats the point Darin Brooks.

Now Frank Valentini should hire Winsor Harmon as the new Jasper "Jax" Jacks

Winsor should have tried for primetime work about 10-15 years ago. He was always an odd fit for B&B and had a rocky beginning with fans - that he managed to last as long as he did in a fairly important role (up to about 2003 or 2004) was more than I'd expected. And I did grow to like him over time, to be fair, especially with Brooke, and he was OK with Darla too, but I think in some ways the show should have recast a long time ago if they wanted to do anything with the character. 

 

I'm not a huge Ingo fan, although he got better in acting in later years (not that this is a high priority for B&B). It will be strange seeing him as a Forrester, complete with a foreign accent like Ridge. I wonder if they will recast Felicia with somebody like Joanne Whalley Kilmer...

Wow. Ingo. I am literally speechless. I wish Bradley Bell wasn't such a talentless hack bereft of ideas because... this could actually work in a weird way. The Forresters were so rich: SURELY they sent their boys to the Chalet School of International Accents in Switzerland!

I still maintain Winsor was a great Thorne, though.

Never cared for Jacob, even on AMC. Heather Tom is legitimately amazing. She single-handedly kept those Brook/Bill/Katie scenes afloat and made the material more impactful even tho it was trash content, pretty much.

 

they NEED to make her have an affair with Thorne, now. After he and Brooke are coupled-up... she needs to get him hooked, to put her and Brooke on even-ish footing. 

 

 

prediction: "mystery person" invests in Spectra Fashions: SHOCK! It's Thorne.

Wheels NBC (R) 10.0/18   NBC showing the most mini series for the least return.  The Innocent and The Damned was a new title for Aspen. 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.
    • I agree. With that in mind, I think we've pinpointed a good amount of 1980s and 1990s time slot hits.
    • Bit hard to play that when Paul has been gone for years, but yes beforehand their connection was downplayed. With Paul isolated because of LLB's absence they could have easily played up a lonely Paul leaning on Lauren. Write in some issues that would cause friction b/w Lauren and Micheal and bingo! Paul and Lauren could be tempted. Yes that relationship should have remained stronger over the years.
    • To my way of thinking a show can only be classified as a timeslot hit if it is moved out of a timeslot it is rating well in, and doesn't perform as expected/hoped for in the new timeslot. That discounts a lot of shows that get moved at the end of their lifespan. I would put Hotel in that category along with other examples like Falcon Crest and Trapper John, which after several successful seasons were falling in the ratings and basically moved elsewhere to finish their runs. Had Hotel been moved in Season 3 and bombed then its status as a timeslot hit would be proven. Looking forward to your response!
