Totally, but they have zero idea what to do with Victoria outside of Billy. We’ve had glimpses of non-Billy-obsessed Vicky (like with Travis), but it never lasts. That character needs a rethink, and as bad as the JT story was, it was the perfect opportunity for a reboot that would have been somewhat organic. (I understand it’s tough when they are tied together with kids. Maybe Billy needs a stint in prison or something, so that he’s off the canvas.)
I never check actors' social media because I am often disappointed with this or that comment but I went to KKL's and
1) I had no idea she was a grandmother. It makes sense based on her age but it still feels like WOW has time passed
2) I like that she still seems to be in touch with Ashley Jones a lot. And seeing Jennifer Gareis in so many pictures seem to confirm what we were saying a few days back that Gareis seems to be very popular with everyone on-set and that's probably why they had her on contract even though there was no real story reason to.
I liked Jason as Patrick a lot too. I think he is miscast as Billy - it is Maura West as Diane miscast level for me. Fantastic actors but when a role isn't theirs, it just isn't.
I do love David Tom and I hate the way he was treated. I do sort of understand what they were saying about why it didn't work when he came back but the answer should have been to move Billy out of Victoria's orbit, not to recast.
See, I never understood why Larry King had that reputation. Every interview I have seen of him was AWFUL. He had no idea what he was talking about, who he was talking to and repeatedly asking random non-probing almost mundane questions (presumably because he had no idea what to ask since he knew nothing).
I prefer an interviewer who knows exactly who he is dealing with because it means he/she knows what the interesting things to ask are and how to get information out of the subject.
Think about it this way: if you have an hour with someone, do you think you will get a more interesting conv
