Austin is....

 

Too Much--   Smirking

Too little   Interest in another RoHo character

Too late   to undo this clown in the role

 

lol

 

I'm so over him

Yep. If they had brought on RH as Austin from the beginning (10 years ago or whatever), that would've been fine. But now that we're on RH's third character, it's too much. It's too late to try to make RH viable at this point. They want him to be a Quartermaine and to be relevant so badly. The reveal that he's a Holt was zzzz.

Maxie and Brooklyn are shouting about the baby while Valentin and the Q's are all on the other side of the door. Really?

I hope Lenny doesn't die. I like him and Phyllis, lol. "Mike" is getting tiresome though. I'm ready for something to happen with this story. How many times can we see him at the Tan-O thinking about Nina?

Why is Spencer carrying the fake blood-covered boots in his backpack? LOL. Love him and Trina though. I was surprised that he revealed himself already. Looking forward to seeing him with Laura.

Does ELQ not have a boardroom? Why do their meetings take place in the living room?

I really wish if they wanted to bring on this character that they had given the role to anyone else.  Because now I no longer see Todd, or Franco, I just  see Roger Howarth playing another character, with diminishing returns.  I can’t believe how stupid this is.

Yep! The show doesn't actually care about adding to the Q family. If they did, they would've done it before now and cast another actor. There are plenty of soap actors in that age range who could've been good in this role. We all know that they're only adding to the Q's because they wanted an excuse to have Roger on the show and cement him to a core family. Now we get to see RH acting goofy every day again. It's insane.

GH saving money on sets by having the characters sit in a tree 

And how about Ava making her way up a hill and trudging through the grass to talk to Trina. Yeah, that was realistic.

With the exception of B&B, any time a network soap in the late 2000s/2010s/2020s starts going outside or off-set to ugly or banal-looking areas it's because they're low on cash. I remember ATWT staging a poor fight scene by some dumpsters. The constant 'remotes' on that show, AMC and OLTL near the end all looked pretty poor. Staging stuff in studio stairwells is super obvious too.

Good remotes are well-lit and don't look incongruous (like Pine Valley, California on AMC after the doomed L.A. move) or like you're just using whatever's immediately available despite if it fits the scenes.

I fully agree but I am actually even less charitable than you. B&B may not be low on cash and does have some decent outdoors scenes (the scene itself was stupid but the beach scene with Steffi and Finn was fine visually) but a lot of their outside scenes are pretty clearly the roof of the studio (that "restaurant").

The "big" Austin reveal was so anticlimactic. Everyone in the room looked bored. Nobody cares if RH's third character is related to a past character. And they had to kill off Jimmy Lee to try to make this sh-t work. Yawn!

I want Mike to find out he's Sonny so he can have money again and pay for Lenny's medical bills. Literally I care far more about Lenny than I do about Austin. Lenny's specialist should be someone at GH. Hell, have it be Monica.

Love Spencer rolling his eyes and being snarky at Ava. I like him so far.

Didn't we have the same scene with the Quartermaines when it was implied Frankles was Susan and Alan's son?

 

Well, NuSpencer fit like a glove with Nikolas and Laura, not to mention Ava.  He held his own.

 

Why can't Maxie be talking to Bobbie, Felicia, Britt or even Liesl? 

 

Of course Jimmy Lee is dead.  

If Steve Bond still looked like this.....

 

Frank would be jumping through hoops...

 

Looking like this

 

He could be re-firing up a rivalry between Lucy and Bobbie as a 3 times a month story...

 

But, like @KMan101 says, we can't have nice things...

Just more of this...

I suppose the  world renowned Dr. Monica Quartermaine's years in cardiology didn't make the cut for that Google Search . Perhaps Mike didn't notice the Port Charles location.  Then he and his beloved Nina could have stolen a glance.    Now Anna gets to see him.  (Maybe.) They should cast Marty West or Jeff Branson for the pilot, since it's the brother of Kimberly Brown's character-- there's a wink wink #firefrank will miss out on.

Oh Finn, just confess. Your portrayer doesn't have to worry about job security on this show!

3 times a month? You're so generous! I'm still waiting to find out what happens with Bobbie's diabetes.

Steve looks hotter and younger than his TV son. The scenes with Austin and the Q's felt forced and awkward. As RH smirked his way through them. There's only a 14½ yrs age differences between them.

NuSpencer was really loud in his first episode but thankfully that hasn't resurfaced. He's definitely playing Spencer with a lot of secrets. I really like him so far, I think he's a really good fit. I'm eager to see if his acting gets softer/more emotional/quippier once he doesn't have a chip on his shoulder. His towering over his dad was pretty funny to me.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWW HELLLLLLLL OOOOOOOOO!!!!

 

That better be a lie!!! Wasted potential if so. And he STILL looks good.

 

Meanwhile...lol.

 

6-5

 

BRAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so happy to see him and see him and Britt bond. Can't we get him out of jail along with Shawn, too?

 

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW....my eyes at Britt and Jax. I...I can't. I am still recovering from Jason breaking Britt's heart and how great those scenes were and THIS happen.

 

I do love that they finally got back around to reveal the Dev's fake diary page though I do wish he was around for the fallout.

 

NuSpencer is good with me and I already see chemistry with Trina.

 

I love at the start of this episode that Cameron and Jake are having a scene together. But I like Liz and her kids so...
