OLTL: Week of April 29th Discussion
Victor showing up at the hospital was anticlimactic as hell. The acting was all wrong from everyone involved. You would think they could have gone a little bigger for something people were waiting over a year for. It fell totally flat.

nuMatthew was better and less stiff today, but I'm still not a fan.

Viki and Dorian are still the best.

'Dallas' Renewed for Third Season
My guess is that it will be the last renewal the show receives unless it performs a miraculous turn-around.

OLTL: Week of April 29th Discussion
I don't think Eddie Alderson is irreplaceable by any stretch of the imagination. But, based on what I saw in this episode, this guy is not the one, IMO.

OLTL: Week of April 29th Discussion
I thought it was a mixed bag, but there was more that was good than was bad.

My scattered thoughts:

Viki and Dorian's rekindled rivalry and the re-emphasis on The Banner. This is already my favorite of the new crop of stories. I'm dying for Viki and Dorian's scenes to resume tomorrow.

The production values are impressive and the nighttime location shooting was well done. The more realistic tone of the show is really good, too.

Cutter/Natalie is intriguing, but it seems like they're implying that something might have gone down between them between the end of OLTL on ABC and now, and if that's the case, I hope they provide that context quickly.

The new opening is horrid. I hope it's just temporary while the show's still getting off the ground.

nuMatthew is terrible -- both the actor and the new characterization. nuDestiny also bore no resemblance (on a couple levels) to the old, but since she was a character that I never really cared much about to begin with, it doesn't bother me as much.

Overall, I was very satisfied.

Thank you for posting! The relish storyline is probably my A or B storyline for this soap and I cannot wait to see Tracy crash the set of The Chew! Love Pickle Lila but can't STAND that AJ got his hands on it. Am hoping for a Tracy Q win (the show better not think the audience is team AJ, especially since Nik is firmly en enemy of that jackass) and hope that whatever Tracy and Nik rename Pickle Tracy is catchy and makes that relish FLY off shelves. Take that, AJ! Jerk.
Some of us are.

NBC Renews Parenthood for Full Season!
I guess this is good news. I just hope Season 5 is an improvement over Season 4, which (with the exception of Kristina's cancer) I thought was awful. Parenthood really became a chore for me this past year.

Spoilers for the week of May 6th
Well this thing about Kristen and John in the secret room is the first spoiler regarding Kristen that I've looked forward to in months. It'll be a nice change from the same.damn.scenes with Brady that they've been having her play since at least February.

Maura West Joins General Hospital
Now this has me excited! West is a favorite of mine.

Spoilers for the week of May 6th
It's the people who have no business being together that he seems more interested in.

Triangle from hell recipe 101
first month :wub:
second-five months :shame: :huh?: :what: :wtf: :shame:
six months :headbang:
after six months

It unbelievable that GH has five TFH for May sweeps :shrug:
I only count two that meet that criteria (not that length by itself necessarily dictates a triangle's hellishness, anyway).

Interview: Kimberly McCullough Talks #GH50, ABC Directing Program and Her Desire to Return as Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake
GH can't bring Robin back full-time if KM isn't willing to do that. As for Britt, she doesn't need to be redeemed. I hated her at first, but right now, I think she's just about the perfect balance of bitchy/snarky and vulnerable (and this show needs at least one character who doesn't just adore Sabrina).

Interesting/Spoilerish Tweets, Week of 4/15
Just write a show that's entertaining is all I ask, at this point. I don't expect this show to ever be what it was in its heyday in terms of quality (not that it shouldn't aspire to that), but it baffles me as to why, regime to regime, this show just remains so damn dull and lifeless.

I really don't understand what MarDar did so horribly wrong that deserved them being fired. Yet the crap that these writers dish out and they get to keep on going with it!
Both sets of writers are/were terrible. Just in different ways.

Interesting/Spoilerish Tweets, Week of 4/15
Well, knowing that they both are respectively writing different things on the show -- and none of it being anything I like -- makes it that much easier for me to want both gone.

And making Kristen afraid of losing Brady (as opposed to planning to dump him) would actually give her some stakes in this story. Yay!
And make her look ridiculous when she becomes a sobby mess upon actually losing him.

I want to know how much longer the writers intend to milk this Kristen/Brady stuff dry so that I'll have an idea as to when I can enjoy Kristen's scenes again.

Dallas (2012) Discussion
Cidre sucks. This show desperately needs a new show runner.

Dallas (2012) Discussion
I thought the finale itself was acceptable, but it didn't leave me looking forward to a third season at all.

i feel bad for the Aussies since they were just getting to the reset, and all the goodness we all loved so much when MarDar first took over (not including the eggbaby resolution nonsense).
I don't recall loving it. In retrospect, I wish we could have skipped it in the U.S., as well.
I'd take the early part of it over what we have now.
Well, that's true that it wasn't as bad as what came before, after, or currently. But I was almost as bored with the show then as I am now.
