Most seem to like the actress playing Flo (I still lol at "Flo" though as a name for a beautiful blonde 20-something). I thought about tuning in for Denise Richards (I had no doubts B&B would be the perfect soap for her), but I can't stomach the show for too long. Maybe like you I'll record and binge one day and find a way to chug through it ...

 

But the real question is: when will he lose interest like he always does?

I know.  I hear the name and constantly think "Mel, kiss my grittssss".

And it is so stupid that they immediately re-wrote what had just happened...Hope with "this was your big secret you were keeping!" with Flo.  Hope was standing right there when they showed her the DNA results for the first time.  Clearly that would not be the 'secret' she was keeping because Hope saw her find out for the first time. 

Oh, that irritated me.  It's like they don't even try to keep the writing consistent from episode to episode.  Or even scene to scene.  Do the script writers even bother to read the script of the previous episode?

I said to my sister...were soaps always this bad and we just didn't notice?  Where there are horrible plot holes and rewriting stuff the very next day...were they always this bad and we just didn't notice?  But I don't think so...not this bad.

In all honesty, to me, Hope's blind assumption was reminiscent of the dumbed down Salemites of the mid-90's on DAYS with Reilly as headwriter.

I read some shows had continuity editors to make sure there wasnt errors like these.  I guess that got eliminated with all the budget cuts.

 

Soaps used to be better written till the late 90s...and have rarely been consistent since.  AMC in the last few months of its ABC run was the last time I enjoyed a soap...a mix of drama, humor and history being respected.

 

I think Flo being Storms daughter is a good move..but the show will focus on the Hope angle..not on the irony of Storm vowing to be a good dad and not be like his dad..and letting his anger at his dad ruin his life....and the huge irony of having a child he never knew about.  Would have been a great angle to have explored..imho

I'm so sick to death of Hope and her "agony".   And why is Thomas sitting around shirtless for no reason?  LOL.

What a horrible name to choose.  To her nieces and nephews, she is literally "Aunt Flo."  LOL

I watched a bit of the paternity reveal scenes and jeez there were just too many blonde women in one room. I mean, props for Bell for casting the Logans to look like family but damn.. Luckily Katie is still there to break the mold.

I can confirm that Karla Mosley was taken off contract. Her last contract airdate was 3/19.

 

So having her come back from Paris and divorcing Rick was really just as senseless as we all knew it would be.

Huge disappointment. They should have just left her and Rick married and off canvas.

THIS

 

It annoys the hell out of me. For 10 talk-to-episodes they ruined this couple that they put so much effort into.

IDK. I wouldn't even say they put a crap ton of effort into them. They were mean girls to Aly for a while but have mostly been supporting and off-screen. Rick was quickly discarded (I figured B&B would waste Young, and they did). Karla Mosley's never been that great of an actress but she was passable on the show and mean girl Maya worked for her. Too bad she wasn't allowed to be a flawed individual who wasn't very nice. They completely dropped the ball. They never had plans to tell a real story with Maya. It was over as soon as it started.

    • I feel like I would’ve been more invested had Uk not aired at the same time and been such a joyous show. They need to take a page out of the BBC and do a more genuine season that isn’t driven by shocks and producer manipulation to keep it interesting. 
    • Yuh-Jung Youn just won the Supporting Actress BAFTA, which is a boost for her Oscar prospects. Would be only the second actress of Asian descent (to my knowledge) to win an Oscar after Miyoshi Umeki for Sayonara in 1958.
    • RHoJohannesburg   @Cheap21 @Chris B maybe not over yet?         RHOA   What? Not Finale Promo when it's actually NEXT WEEK!!!!    
    • Wendy Riche spoke about dealing with the network when she wanted to tell an AIDS story before the Labine had decided on Stone and Robin. She had gone to the network about having A.J. Quartermaine contract the disease from a situation that would leave people asking who slept with who. Of course, it's also rumored that Marland intended for Hank Eliot, not his lover Charles, to die of the disease. In both scenarios, there is definitely a concern about perpetuating a stereotype that gay men are promiscuous.    Here's the transcript from the Riche interview on WeLoveSoaps:     I'm watching a bit of 1995. There is a scene that I watched, before seeing this more recently, where A.J. shows up at the gatehouse and crashes a girls' night with Brenda and Lois. I believe the purpose of the scene is for Ned to walk in and be upset that A.J. is meddling, but there are moments where I feel like A.J. enjoyed just dishing the dirt with the ladies and that the show was testing the waters at pre- "Will and Grace" dynamic between A.J. and the ladies. It's entirely possible I completely misread the scene as well.   
    • It’s hard. These shows just weren’t built with us in mind. I feel like there was a small window to tell really strong LGBTQ stories in the early-to-mid ‘90s when society had advanced enough to be somewhat inclusive and soaps had become more grounded after their ‘80s flights of fancy yet still had quality and budget.     These remaining soaps are a lost cause. They are essentially zombies coasting on a mostly conservative audience born before the Kennedy administration. They can barely tell watchable stories about *anything.*   Most primetime portrayals don’t even really do it for me. Ryan Murphy has been an absolute scourge. The best screen depictions of gay men for me have always been movies like “My Beautiful Laundrette” and “Happy Together” and the rare TV series like the British version of “Queer As Folk.” (Hope the new one set in New Orleans can approach that quality.)
