I see the Bold and the Beautiful is doing it BIG right about now. I hope this kid can act. But then again a one eyed monkey could do a better job than Drew Tyler Bell!

In even better news, ED SCOTT IS BACK! Say what you want about his tactics, but the man knows how to produce a damn good show (Days never looked better under his tenure) so him on the team is great.

It must have hurt Brad's heart to fire his illegitimate son....LOL!! This is merely a strategic publicity stunt to throw the INVESTIGATORS off of his scent. We all know that Brad Bell a.) is Drew's daddy, b.) PAID for that Emmy for Drew, an Emmy that he should give BACK, since he clearly didn't deserve it and c.) should have, for all intents and purposes, replaced Drew years ago!!! Just my humble opinion.

P.S-- I STILL think they need to do a recount for that Younger Actor Emmy!!!! FISHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

alstonboy4315,

You did not say how you feel about the recast. What do you think about him teaming up with Brooke and going after Hope?

Smitty,

I have an idea, ship Taylor and Whip off to Forrester International. They can come home for the holidays if they must..lol

Wow, I was shocked by this casting change! I didn't see this one coming!

And Alstonboy, I do agree, Drew Garrett was robbed of that Emmy.

I will say it again and forever, Drew G. eff up so if anyone was robbed it was DTB former co-star Scott Clifton.

EastWest--

Brad didn't comment??? LOL!! Well, that is interesting. Although, what could he say??

" I am upset that my son will now be unemployed, but he still retains FULL use of my American Express Black Card and all other indirect and direct luxuries associated with being a Bell spawn. He knows that he'll always be in my heart.....and my will." LOL!!!

I am waiting for Drew to make his daddy REALLY proud and come out with his own sex tape in rebellion, ala Paris Hilton!! LOL!!!

Reggyreg--

I have not been actively watching B&B lately, so I can't really comment on that. I mostly watch GH, DAYS, AMC and Y&R nowadays. I always promise myself that I will watch the other ones on cbs.com, but never seem to get around to it. I think this Adam Gregory guy will be a welcomed addition to the cast. Heck, he's already got one of the "prerequisites" out of the way---the "beautiful" part. Wink Wink

You should check out B&B. It is pretty good right now!

Smitty,

I am going to convert you to a Brooke Logan Forrester fan even if it kills me. And considering how loyal a Taylor Hayes Forrester fan you are it just might..LOL!

"set his eyes on his stepsister Hope"-THAT IS THE REASON I CANNOT WATCH THIS SHOW! I am sorry for the people that enjoy this show, but to me this show is an incestuous mess. Whenever I think that maybe I am bring too harsh and hear "good things" like I have lately, enjoying good soapy stories as I do, I consider maybe turning on this show, only to hear and see stuff like this.

Glad they are recasting Thomas. Never thought I'd see the day. But I SO wanted Brett Claywell as NuThomas, might of had to age Thomas a bit, but he would have been great in that role & on B&B. Oh well.

Reggyreg-

I watched some of the episodes on CBS.com, but unfortunately, NOBODY ever posts full episodes of B&B on YouTube, and cbs.com gets on my nerves with all those freakin' commercials and crap!!! I like watching my soaps without interruptions. I tried to find the footage where the tribute video was tampered with, but it wasn't on cbs.com anymore.

I also watched that MAHHHHVELOUS cliffhanger last Friday where Liam blurted out "Don't hit me! I'm your son!" to "daddy" Ridge, a father that he bears NO resemblance to. (rolls eyes in dismay!)

I need to go on there and watch some more episodes this weekend when I get a few spare hours.

P.S-- If ANY of you TiVo this show or record it, please start posting the episodes on YouTube. Ditto for ATWT. I really can't stand watching them on the website. Talk about worrisome!!!! Puzzled Puzzled

The last time I saw an episode of B & B was when Clinton was president. I might check in now to see what's up.
I have to agree with watchingallday; however, semi-incestuous goings on do not do it for me.

Unfortunately, it wouldn't be B&B w/o incest (and ppl get up in arms about my Jonathan and Tammy lol!).

Alstonboy,

I hope you start watching. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. And to all you people who are up and arms about Thomas and Hope..Why do people keep saying B&B is telling incest storylines? Thomas and Hope ARE NOT RELATED. I am not one to harp on the fact that their parents are related and that their prospective relationship should be taboo because guess what..IT IS A SOAP OPERA! I think we take things to seriously sometimes and actually believe it is more than just what it is meant to be..fiction to be enjoyed!

Brett Claywell looks too old to play Thomas. He looks 30, not early to mid 20s.

Daytime Emmys are meaningless. Look at Bryton James and Susan Haskell both won awards but saw little screen time for their efforts.

I am a BUSY guy these days, but I shall see what I can do. I also enjoyed that MAGNIFICENT footage of Stephanie slapping the PISS outta Liam on YouTube....as well as Ridge clocking Liam. B&B seems to have gotten a lot more violent lately, but I think I like it.... Wink Wink

And I agree that "incest" should be taboo in this town. Hell, they say that when you sleep with somebody, you are also sleeping with EVERY person that that person has slept with, so if that logic applies, EVERYONE on B&B has already slept with EACH OTHER!!!! Stephanie has slept with Brooke, Taylor has slept with Thorne....it's just a hotbed of NASTINESS over there!!! And I think I like that as well...... Wink Wink

I am a huge fan of LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON, but LUST IN THE AFTERNOON can be just as good!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's why I said they'd have to age Thomas a bit. I think Thomas is like 24 now, if they aged him to 27 or 28, Brett could pass for 28. But It's all a mute point now.

I'm sure I have a better chance of converting you to a Taylor Hayes Jones fan before me EVER becoming a Brooke Slogan (Slut + Logan) fan....lol

Here is the nightmare scenario for the Drew Tyler Bell Haters. What if Deadline reports that Drew lands on a mid-season pilot, and thus explaining the reason for his exodus. Stranger things have happened in this industry. Personally, I just overlook him when thinking about the good aspects of B&B. Unless of course I want a good laugh.

With this new storyline, B&B will be continuing to interject more Greek Tragedy into the show (as Jamey likes to put it).
