This suicide hotline PSA. Disgraceful. Especially after this nonsensical story.


Honestly, I was angry when I saw that PSA for the suicide hotline. Just horrifically out of place. Disgusting.

B&B lacks the range to do social-issue stories. Brad should stick to the trashy, outrageous stuff that’s in his wheelhouse. Scandals, sordid affairs, sex under absurd circumstances.

The major problem is that Brad fails to give payoffs to even the trashy stuff, certainly not since the Beth story concluded. He doesn’t give us the satisfaction of really good high-carb, empty-calorie TV. He writes little self-contained arcs that deflate and sputter at the end like a whoopee cushion, which perhaps makes the show more digestible to the casuals?

I don’t think LSV is a bad actor, but he doesn’t seem to play anything but smirky “you know want all-of-this” seduction. Who cares when you look like that, I suppose.

I'm glad Carter and Quinn weren't already dropped as I suspected would happen...they're hot together! Still...that should have been allowed to build more before the reveal. So many missed story beats there that would have made the reveal so much more compelling. Of course, same thing with the Justin story. That should have been building for many months.

I think Carter is gorgeous, but I can't buy him with Quinn.  I'm not sure if it's her age or the antics and lies of her character.  She's certainly nobody he should lose his job for.

I had no idea "Carter" and "Quinn" had an age difference. I don't think RS looks 53 at all and I think he could pass for relatively older in a "black don't crack" kind of way.
I have seen many black men who looks like he does at 53

I wonder where they are going with having Paris move in with Finn/Steffy. Especially right before his parents will show up. If Paris really needed a place to stay they could have had her stay at the Forrester Mansion. She's fond of Eric & the family as a whole doesn't seem to have an issue with her. And may even be "grateful" to her for helping reveal the truth about Quinn/Carter. But they are having her move in with Steffy/Finn. Hmmm...lol.

They need to stop having black folks sing on this show. I’m reminded of Timothy D. Stickney’s anecdote in the OLTL oral history. He said he pretended to be tone-deaf so they wouldn’t haul him out to sing at holidays and funerals.

The only good line of the week so far has been Eric. “Carter’s on top of it.”

Yes he is Eric, and perhaps under it too.

Behind it, diagonal to it, perpendicular to it…. 

They were really going there with the double entendres.

Quinn has definitely upped her sex game with Carter as her lover. I hope she gets a great divorce settlement too.
