GH BYTES: Kudos to John J. York for Thursday’s performance. He is by far one of the show’s most underappreciated and underutilized stars. I can’t wait for Tristan Rogers to arrive as Robert Scorpio. You just know their scenes are going to be good.
Patrick (Jason Thompson) vs. Sam (Kelly Monaco) has provided some excellent scenes this week. I’m not a JaSam fan, but Monaco is making me feel Sam’s emotional angst over the man she loves.
If Kate (Kelly Sullivan) were to go cuckoo for cocoa puffs could she please end up in a rocking chair in Shady Brook? Pretty please? Sonny to Kate: “Don’t make me choose between you and my son.” I wonder if that’s the beginning of the end for these two.
Ethan (Nathan Parsons) and the Woman in White just need to fade to black, permanently.
Does anyone ever look more consistently fantastic than Jane Elliot as Tracy Quartermaine?
So Shawn (Sean Blakemore) professed his feelings for Carly (Laura Wright). It’s a crying shame she doesn’t feel the same way.
B&B BYTES: Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) is such an ass. That is all.
If you haven’t watched former The Bold and the Beautiful star Kyle Lowder in the webtastic guilty pleasure DeVanity, then you need to march over to SFNTV.com and watch last night’s episode. It’s the last episode before next week’s season finale!
Y&R BYTES: It pains me to say this. When Melissa Claire Egan debuted on All My Children I loathed her as Annie, but over the years her acting drastically improved and won me over. By the time she left AMC she was in one of my favorite pairings, and I missed her greatly once she was gone. Unfortunately, like many other The Young and the Restless storylines at the moment involving pointless characters, Chelsea and Anita (Catherine Bach) need to make a swift exit.
So Adam (Michael Muhney) proposed to Sharon (Sharon Case). Later, after they’ve left the afterglow of their bed, Adam to Sharon: “I’m perfectly capable of getting wood.” I realize they were talking about actual firewood, but yeah...
The Baldwin/Fisher family is oh-so-dysfunctional, but I just love when they circle the wagons. It’s so nice to have Ted Shackelford back on our screens. Love Kin Shriner, but he just didn’t feel like Jeffrey Bardwell.
Avery (Jessica Collins) has been on Y&R for how long and I still can’t get take the character seriously. Every time I see her wearing those librarian glasses, I imagine her whipping them off seductively for a Playboy cover shoot.
DAYS BYTES: After seeing Will getting groped in the shadows of Horton Square, I had to wonder if Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens still wants to see the development of EJ and Will’s indecent attractions. That guy pushed Will up against the wall so hard you literally heard it echo. Hope Will doesn’t end up with a concussion.
Other than the Sami (Alison Sweeney), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Will (Chandler Massey) storyline, the last couple days of DAYS has been pretty snore worthy. Thank goodness EJ (James Scott) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) spiced things up on Thursday as the celebrated their anniversary.
I cannot wait for Nicole to find out about EJ and Sami. Nicole vs. Sami is second only to Kate (Lauren Koslow) vs. Sami when it comes to my favorite Days of Our Lives rivalries. Kate vs. Vivian (Louise Sorel) comes in an extremely close third. I think my love for Kate vs. Sami is why I just can’t warm up Kate vs. Madison (Sarah Brown), as much as I’m enjoying Brown in Salem.
Does anyone still care about Alice’s (Frances Reid) secret?
Things need to get a moving with the Bo (Peter Reckell), Hope (Kristian Alfonso), John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena storyline. Hope spends too much time handwringing over the secret and it’s been giving me flashbacks of Guiding Light's infamous cutting coupons scenes. Maybe it’s just the calm before the proverbial storm, but anything that reminds someone of coupon cutting is never good.
