I've just gotta say this, having caught up.

I'm just not a fan of these rapidfire mini-arcs Ron's doing. There's no build. There's about two weeks of drama, and anything longer than that runs between sweeps periods, skips about 10 beats, and then is concluded with the characters vanishing for weeks to months at a time. I know that's down to guarantees, but I really really miss the long-form stories. The payoffs were stronger from the time taken to build them.


This Theresa revelation took all of...what...10 episodes? That's the kind of story that would've taken 3 or more months to conclude in years past. I was enjoying Theresa being exposed, but it was SO damn fast, it's like there's hardly any middle to the story, just the beginning and the end.

I'd have to agree with you. I'm not a fan of the mini-arcs either.

I'm not at all caught up and know what you are talking about.

Great minds think alike. I was thinking the same thing.

I love how Ben, a serial killer, is going to get out of the sanitarium faster than Gabi is going to get out of prison. I don't want Ben to be redeemed. Ben used to be a good guy and he was so boring (though maybe it will be different now that he's a good guy with a villainous past, but I doubt it). RSW was never interesting on the show until they made him a villain.

This character is absolutely terrible, and the actress is pretty bad which makes it a lot worse. She makes the goofiest facial expressions in an attempt to convey emotions. There is nothing to the character besides being selfish and over dramatic.

 

The show finally found a way to get me to root for Brady/Eve - putting him back in whiny Theresa's orbit did the trick.

On Friday's episode I was glad to see Brady show that he cared about Chloe's well-being and hug  her once he saw her. I was also glad he acted like he cared about John/Paul and was upset when he found out their lives had been in danger. I would like to see him interact more with his family (outside of Victor) and Chloe more.

I agree that I like that this Brady and Chloe have a good friendship rapport.  What exactly was the explanation for their break up years ago?  Did it involve Brady's addiction issues?

He did end up blaming her for his addiction issues and they got divorced. Later on when he returned to town, they made amends with each other and agreed to be friends.

    • BH Diana is one of the biggest flops we have seen in any Housewives franchise. She's calling Sutton boring? Girl, take your bullsh*t elsewhere.  Diana also brings out a very ugly side of Kyle as she defended Diana....which of course is nothing new. Kyle gravitates towards money and power, ever the realtor's wife from the Valley...I'm sure once Mauricio has sold a listing that will be curtains for their friendship.
    • Victoria outscheming EVERYONE.  Finally.   Such an interesting story about all the men assuming that the poor little woman is clueless and incompetent.  Everyone having conversations about this. (Men assuming that "the poor little woman is incapable of making rational decisions for herself" is really reflecting society right now.)   And meanwhile she is secretly being the queen here and taking down Ashland in her own way and on her own terms, without being *rescued* by any man. They are so underestimating her! Destroy them all!
    • That's a very true point & a very scary estimation.
    • Seriously, given the resources they have, compared to GL at the end, I think they are much worse.
    • There were three of those "series". Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter One  Eight episodes Aug. 1 – Sept. 5, 2019 Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter Two Eight episodes Sept. 19 – Nov. 7, 2019 Last Blast Reunion (takes place in New York City) Eight episodes Nov. 29, 2019 – Jan. 16, 2020 They were on a special "app" called the "DOOLapp" and that app was available only in the US.  You had to have the app -- they couldn't be watched in a regular browser window. They weren't streaming, and they weren't podcasts, but they were sort of like that.  Some viewers referred to the episodes as "appisodes" for lack of a better term.  The show officially called it a "Digital Series".  Each episode was between 6 and 10 minutes long.  The first few were uploaded at once; and then one episode was uploaded each week thereafter. These series sort of had same concept as what Beyond Salem does now - Salem characters interacting outside of Salem. It was canon.  But if you only watched the main daytime show and never knew about the DOOLapp "appisodes", it wouldn't disrupt your continuity of watching the main daytime show. The characters of Chad and Abby had exited the main daytime show prior to this. They had left Salem and were living in Paris.   This was a quick way to check in with the characters without requiring a longterm taping commitment for the actors.  The episodes were so short that I think each "chapter" was filmed in a few days. They introduced the character of Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) for the very first time in  "Chad and Abby in Paris".  Li and Chad worked in the Paris office of DiMera Enterprises.   Later on, Hoffman debuted as Li on the main daytime show in April 2020. For the digital "Last Blast Reunion" in New York, they brought back several of the original actors from the Last Blast Dance teen crowd of old for a reunion - who hadn't been on the main daytime show in many many years. Including Jay Kenneth Johnson and Heather Lindell -- who came to the main daytime show later in 2020. In a different sort of carryover ...  the 2019 Chad and Abby in Paris apartment set was used for the first time for the main daytime show in 2020 -- the set was used briefly at various times when Salem characters were running from the police and went to France and hid out at the DiMera Paris apartment.
