YT has really cracked down on most options to download their videos but I know I use 4k video downloader. They have limited how many you can download per 24h recently but it is better than nothing and I don't download that much so it has never bothered me much.
I think jdownloader also still works with YT but this needs to be double-checked
I feel ridiculous that I didn't know. I watched KL back to front several times! But I never saw Kojak. And looking at the Kojak pictures he looked good alright but also older than he did on KL imho which might be why.
So let me ask because I missed those conversations here at the time.
What's the consensus around these parts about BC? I mean, he did give a bit of a douche vibe in real life although I never heard anything concrete.
Do we "hate" him? Do we have a reason to? Or is just the character we don't want back?
That's correct. I want to say Jackie left GH to try her luck in movies. She made two in 1982 -- Young Doctors in Love (the soap spoof, a cameo) and National Lampoon's Class Reunion (as Gerrit Graham's WASP fiancee) -- and both were produced by ABC Motion Pictures.
This is all very compelling and I'd agree your theory is more likely.
But I also think that it is easier to be controlled and calculated when things are going your way; it is not incompatible with letting your emotions cloud your judgement when things come crashing down - while still being smart and calculated over all.
The reason I stick to my current theory that it is probably a mix is because of something you said: the BH audience doesn't believe her. And for her to think she'd fool us when it is SO obvious it would be a much taller order than the current performances she gives, when she doesn't provide any fact or counter-narrative, tells ME that part of her behavior is indeed narcissistic delusion she can still pull it off because she is the victim and, surely, the audience will see it. She doesn't need to engage with the facts in her mind because that's not the point. The point is HER suffering.
She is a smart woman: if she were thinking about this rationally, she'd know she needs a better PR plan than this transparently phony fact-less BS.
Think about that Tom and the car story. That's not someone who is in control of her narrative and knows what she is doing. That is someone who sees herself as the victim and is convinced people will see it this way - even if I don't doubt she is indeed giving a performance to get the audience there like she did to get the audience where she wanted in her previous "personality"
