Damn....I'm watching Tuesday's B&B right now and what was even worse than Uncle Rick and Steffy in post-coital bliss was seeing Steffy's unbelievable "walk of shame."

I know the show is trying to sell glamor, but come ON! Where is Steffy's jacked up hair, makeup, clothes, and forgetting her cellphone?

I only wished I looked half as put together as Steffy after leaving some dude's house.

I've been watching a bit of B&B lately and I'm just amazed at how bad it is.

Seriously, the acting has gotten actrocious. Everyone is terrible. Everyone. Ron Moss. Katherine Kelly Lang. Hunter Tylo. The chick who plays Steffy. I honestly don't think any of them are taking it serious anymore. It feels like they're all in a contest to see which of them will end up on "The Soup" next. This whole show is hammier than a pig farm.

Then there's the dialogue, which is just trite and ridiculous. It's rivaling "Passions." If I hear one more person telling Rick that he needs to stay away from Steffy, I'm going to put my fist through the TV set. Does this show even have more than one storyline? Every scene of every episode revolves around Rick, Steffy and how terrible their relationship is for Ridge. Move it along!

It's crazy to think that B&B and Y&R are both Bell shows, yet they're not even comparable. In fact, I don't recall B&B ever being this bad in the past. It's always been a little campier than Y&R, but never to the point where it seemed like they were being terrible on purpose just so Joel McHale could make fun of them.


What makes me sad Kenny is that this is the kind of Bell show that, years ago, would have appealed to those fans that enjoy a great combination of light- hearted humor and heartstopping drama. It used to be engaging and compelling, but far more accessible to the average viewer than Y&R(because of the half hour and the faster paced stories).

B&B wasn't always like this. Even at B&B's worst in the past, the show was never just really bad.

I think everyone is just bored and overworked. Especially with the recycling of stories. I don't expect for B&B to tell a wonderful social issues story or feature alot of minorities, but I'd love to have something other than incestuous stories driving this show.

It breaks my heart seeing them ham it up for The Soup. B&B is better than this and they're wasting the show's potential.

And Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is talented. She has great presence. She's had a few scenes where she was good. But I also feel like they haven't given her anything challenging to play. But then again, Jennifer Finnigan made shitty stories and situations that could have easily ruined her character and made them into compelling tour-de-force performances. But she also had La Flannery as a mentor.
