Haven't watched yet, but sounds like Shemar could take the Guest Performer Emmy next year.

I don't think there is going to be one.  I think they pulled it because of Patrika Darbo's issue or something. 

 

The episodes have been good but today especially - did they use this opportunity to sell a bunch of more commercial/ad time?  Because one person speaks for 3 minutes and they're off to commercial again and it's been the whole episode.

I just watched the April 25th episode, and to say it was tough is an understatement. The ‘performances’ were so real, no ‘acting’ was required and it will tear your heart out.

 

I don’t usually get emotional watching soaps, but this one touched me in a way other such instances don’t.

 

Without giving anything away, Shemar Moore delivered almost 7 minutes of raw heartbreak and adulation that I find hard to believe was scripted.

 

 

 

 

He said the writer almost knew verbatim what he would say, I honestly find most of the dialogue more their words than scripted. All in all watching all them show that real raw emotion just tore my heart up. Shemar BROUGHT it,

Man these funeral scenes are rough. Most of the actors don’t seem like they’re acting at all, just raw emotion for someone they loved. This has to be surreal for them. 

 

When Shemar broke down, I lost it.

 

CK also broke my heart. Not gonna lie.

 

just finished the episode. I’m emotionally spent.

Between my allergies and trying to hold back the tears, I had to take a Tylenol for the headache I got.  Whew, that was tough!

I recently lost a loved one and I couldn't make arrangements in time for the funeral so I feel like, I've been keeping emotions under wraps but the tears just started to flow, almost endlessly...

Today’s episode was rough, especially after losing a loved one recently. They were worked shooting as they say in wrestling. They were in character but every word said was raw and real from the cast at the funeral

 

Monday is gonna be even more heartbreaking. I’m finna go watch some Maury after I finish watching this episode cause I need an emotional pick me up

While I think Traci going over and listening to the news was badly executed, therefore coming off as a bit nosy and uncomfortable, I actually felt something for Lily and the whole scene got me choked up. Not greatly directed, but they gave it good ole-fashioned melodrama, and it worked.

I wasn’t expecting this week to be quite as hard as it was. I knew it would be difficult but damn, literally sobbed through three episodes back to back. The impact of this family and seeing so many black faces on screen felt huge, but what also hurt is that it felt like the end of an era. Dru is gone. Neil is gone. Malcolm exists, but he’s not around and neither is Olivia. The legacy exists, but there is no telling what the show will do with it. 

 

This tribute covered a lot of ground. I loved the small touches like the reverend who felt like what you’d get at a black church. Then you had Leslie in the back, which is where she’d be placed and Sofia and Moses to the side as they were part of his “other family.” It just had such depth and emotion and there wasn’t one person in the room that felt out of place. Neil truly was an impactful character who meant so much to the show as a whole.

As sad as this show was, people weren’t kidding when they said Shemar and Gina Tognoni had chemistry in that tiny little scene. 

I'm going to miss Gina. She really took Phyllis to a new level I thought...one I actually liked!
