I have no shame.  I will be the only one who likes them together. 

 

BTW, is that Joan Armatrading in you avatar picture?

Yep. Love her!

 That is awesome! Me too! 

 

 

 

As far as Willow and Michael. I probably see it from a different perspective since I only started watching again after many years when they were showing repeats, so I never saw them with Sasha and Chase.

I wish I liked Willow more, as she shares a name with one of Joan’s most famous songs lol.

Loved Rick and Abby. Mike and Carrie on DAYS were another normie couple I loved. But Michael/Willow are like Miracle Whip without the zing. JMO. YMMW.

 

Exactly. I'm all for 'normal' too but even Hallmark wouldn't want Michael and Willow! Zzzzzzzz

 

Laura and Kevin, while not the most exciting pairing, fill that 'normal' couple for me, even though we barely see them together (was this week a fluke or did they hear the bitching?)

 

To make them interesting, have Michael run daddy's business and then Willow gets blown up. We all win.

Ok so I bet Britt will learn Brook is faking and they will give her Maxie's baby to keep it safe from Peter

 

I have no doubts. LOL I can't wait

Why does Peter’s face only move below the eyes? You see his jaw and neck just going crazy, but the eyes and forehead are as still as stone. Botox? (Yes, this is what it’s come to.)


I love Britt and Brook Lynn. They’re like the anti-Sasha and Willow.

 

Right? I noticed that. I'm guessing Botox. And yeah, this is what it's come to. LOL. I get milking a villain and I'd have milked Peter a bit too in storyline even though we all hate him, but it's really time to wrap this up soon.

 

LOVE Britt and Brook Lynn. Both of them on my screen makes me so happy. They are totally the anti-Sasha and Willow. I pay attention when the former two are on-screen. I fall asleep when the latter two are on. Sasha had potential but Mattsson is still green and they don't seem interested in Sasha despite keeping her around.

Now with all the baby stuff happening, I fear that we have a long way to go before this finally wraps up.

Yeah, it’s gonna be a long road. A recast *might* help somewhat, but we know that’s not happening.

We know that talking tree won't be going anywhere soon  so a recast is the only answer at this point!

Why is he whispering everything in that weird breathless voice? Why? Why does no one over there tell him it is a bad choice? And if he is deluded into thinking whispering sounds threatening then why does he do it when he is supposed to be loving? And if he thinks whispering sounds loving, why does he do it when threatening?

Some of the WTF performances recently from usually good actors (Laura Wright’s high-pitched screeching, Genie Francis yelping in fear, William Lipton’s constipated angry face-scrunching, Jeff Kober and MEK’s work on most occasions) leads me to believe something has gone very wrong behind the scenes.
 

That said, I’m at a loss as to what Wes is doing and why no one has intervened. It’s one of the most befuddling long-running performances I’ve seen on daytime in a while.

Ugh what I hate about Frank's one-off episodes is that he has a tendency to retcon a whole bunch of things that goes completely against things that were previously addressed on-screen (I'm still not over the Carly's journey to Port Charles re-write leading to Nelle meeting her from a few months ago). In this case Mikkos being abusive to Kristin is news to me considering how Alexis described the dynamic to Helena in 2004.

That crossed my mind while I was watching too Wasn't Mikkos devoted to Alexis' mother lol that's another one of Frank's many flaws as a producer. Luckily, it wasn't as bad as the Luke retcon in 2015.

Oof I completely blocked that out of memory LOL. But yeah, where that storyline was concerned, FV's version of Lena's death goes against how Bobbie explained to Nikolas in 1996 how she died and why she felt abandoned by her.

They should have explored all the stuff in the flashbacks in the therapy sessions, not the invented Mikkos scenes.

    • Hahahahaha!!! You did not!!!   Good to hear you are well, Vee.   Looks like I'll be forced to work partially for Shot 2 Day. Those will be cameo appearances and no lie...sick or not I will be a bitch. Moreso since a day delay is better than what the actual post office is doing with people's mail currently in our area (though it has thankfully started to go back to notice post-He Who Shall Not Be Named).
    • It's a strange thing to bring up 40 years later lol.  There has to be more to the story.  Maybe he didn't get paid, but GH's use of it helped it become popular, therefore helped record sales.  Idk, it seems like the actual use of it on GH and the popularity and eventual record sales would be worth more than royalties from a soap opera?  I guess ideally he'd get both, but GH certainly doesn't have the money to pay him now lol
    • Yep - and that’s when the ratings really started falling off. The episodes during the latter half of the dream season were frequently  no longer even in the top 15.   Ratings had even started to decline a bit at the end of the previous season (1984-85). How many more times could you break up/reunite the couples, or have the Ewings fighting for Ewing Oil? Bobby’s death was a chance to reinvent the show. But the new writers/producers blew it. And Lorimar and the network were more than happy to go back to the tried and true for the 1986-87 season. But the gas in that tank was almost gone. After one decent season following Bobby’s return, the quality of the show plummeted.   The finale was another missed opportunity - in this case, to wrap things up nicely and go out strongly. CBS still hadn’t officially cancelled it when production started on the final episode. Hagman was still hoping for another season. So they designed an episode which would bring back old characters, but not force the writers to explain where the returnees disappeared to in case of another season. So we got another dream. Ugh. Victoria Principal said at the time she was willing to return to put a “coda” on her stint as Pam, but she didn’t want to be part of another cliffhanger. We could have had a great reunion for Bobby and Pam had the production company been willing to make the call on the series ending.
    • It's very unfortunate that there was so much complaining and whining about the format. I often think that soap fans have no foresight in terms of what can happen down the road. Neither AMC nor OLTL were "my shows" (I grew up watching CBS soaps, for the most part) but I was eager to watch these shows, thinking that perhaps the show of support would encourage other producers to want to 'dust off' other cancelled soaps and revive them, on a less ratings-focused platform, where they could get a little more time to build and grow. Yes, Prospect Park was a mess, but there might have other production companies who might have gotten the impetus to join the trend, and they might not have been a mess. Who knows? And all those people saying "I would've watched if it had been streaming on Netflix". Well, Netflix cancels shows the fastest of all the major streamers, so there was no guarantee that these reboots would have been renewed. Hulu was hardly the hinterlands of streaming platforms. I wish that fans of these shows would take the time to think and ponder the possibility that a genre that skews as old as daytime soaps might not get another chance to see another soap stream anywhere other than in bootleg clips and episodes of varying degrees of quality now because there was so much moaning and whining on previous efforts.         And you're right, House Of Cards was extremely popular, so there obviously was a mainstream audience watching dramas on streaming platforms.   As The World Turns fans keep talking about when AOL provided a streaming platform for that show's episodes but I guess that was seen as acceptable since ATWT was still airing on a terrestrial broadcast platform, rather than solely in cyberspace?   It would be nice to see a day when ATWT, GL, etc. could be streamed on Paramount+ but we'd only get soap opera die-hard fans complaining about the shows not airing in their regular T.V. time-slots.
    • Exactly why the others were annoyed at Kandi...decades in the entertainment and she can go DIRECTLY to the head (in this instance NBCUniversal...Bravo's boss) and make some changes. I could see Porsha feeling a kinda way about it since she's been doing good herself with her new RHOA contract, her now contract with that ent agency, hosting BRAVO CHATROOM, protesting, getting articles in the NY Times, etc. But...she has not been around long enough to do what Kandi did. Heck, I finally was able to read that Voices of Bravo article from a few pages back and did not even realize that Kandi reached out to NENE about this as well. In the middle of Nene and her lawsuit at that.    Power. To paraphrase BUFFY...Kandi got it. The other girls don't. This bothers them.    Which is what Kenya has said a few times this season as well. Married or not, if Kenya and Bolo had done something the girls would have been all over it. So when Kenya does it, they want to grab their pearls?    I agree with the antiheroine label.
