SOAP BYTES: Johnny Kills Anthony on General Hospital; Bill Spencer Becomes Big Brother on The Bold and the Beautiful!



B&B BYTES:  After a day of relief from Hope (Kim Matula), Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) we found ourselves back where we have been for months, enduring agonizing relationship dialogue go on and on and on and on and on.  After dining on the emotional steak between Bill and Katie (Heather Tom) on Monday, Tuesday felt like a meal of cotton candy.

Hope: “I didn’t realize all the things I had buried in side.”

Tell me about it.

Bill’s (Don Diamont) henchwoman bugged the office of Hope’s therapist (Hillary B. Smith). Didn’t Bill learn his lesson from manipulating Steffy’s X-rays? Later, Bill listened in as Hope recounted how open she feels to her therapist. He also heard her share that she never met her father. Apparently, in addition to owning a conglomerate, Bill Spencer is trying out to become “Big Brother.” Hurry up and arrive on The Bold and the Beautiful, Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan)!

Can someone please tape Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) mouth shut! I am so tired of watching her meddle in everyone’s lives. As hard as Brooke and Bill fight for their children’s marriages, I’m surprised the two haven’t ended up together themselves.

I'm gonna repost this here:

Wednesday's episode showed that Bo, Hope, Roman,John, Marlena and Rafe have no self respect. Lexie is on the verge of death and they can't do nothing but go-in on Stefano. And when Lexie told them to stop, Dr. Marlena forgot she was a psychiatrist and tried to school Lexie on her own father. I mean Marlena was being a bitch! The head one that day. I wish we had the real Celeste there so that she could slap Marlena across the face! Cause that day she needed it:

Celeste aka Tanya Boyd: How dare all of you come in here and upset my Alex'andra. She only has but so long to live. Do you have any you have any self respect? Hope, you are Alex'andra's best friend. I expected better from you! And Bo? You disappoint me. John and Roman? You need to check your overzealous need to GET Stefano. He is still Alex'andra's father no matter what he has done! And Rafe? Humm...No Words. Marlena, you're suppose to be a psychiatrist! You're supposed to know better then this! But you...All of you were too caught up in your own lives to think about my dar'ling Alex'andra for one minute. Her wants and her needs. Nooooo, you were too consumed with revenge. Settling the score!

Stefano: Celeste I tried too...

Celeste: Don't even start with me Stefano. I don't know what you have done. But it is time for you to start acting like a father and stop this foolishness for once in your life! Our daughter needs you!

Marlena: Celeste i'm sorry--

(Celeste puts the hand up.)

Celeste: Don't! Now I want all of you to listen to me. My dar'ling Alex'andra does not need anymore stress in her life. So until you can act civilized and put your differences aside. Then stay away! And that goes for you to Stefano! Because if Alex'andra suffers any more stress because the likes of all of you. There will be hell to pay. And I intend to collect on that debt!

(Celeste exits the police station.)

B&B - I enjoyed Bill and Katie on Tuesday's show so much. Why do these grown ups have to get involved in their children's love life so desperately??? It's beneath Brooke Logan. Specially since she had to deal with Stephanie all those years. It's unreal to see her become this woman that plans her children's life.
Anyway I'm excited for getting Deacon Sharpe back to L.A. I hope he's there to stay!

GH - What Ron and his team did to Johnny had nothing to do with the on-the-edge character that we saw back in 2007. He killed his own grandfather in cold blood! That doesn't make him a good villain, it makes him a murderer. Next to that he's become a rapist and apparently a pathological liar. I feel sorry for Brandon Barash and all the Johnny fans. Ron created one big mess here and I understand completely that fans are angry because of that.

I am officially hating CarTini. What they are doing to Johnny is one hell of a mistake. Go to hell with your freakin agendas of pimping Todd and Sonny at the expense of Johnny. Angry

I used to love OLTL and now I just hate seeing the OLTL characters (even my beloved Tea) due to my growing rejection of CarTini writing. I feel that I will be done with GH soon...

Bill had a therapist's office bugged?! Hmmm, how very Rupert Murdock of him bugging ILLEGALLY someone's office. Wouldn't that make for a great future story and Bill's downfall. PLEASE PLAY that one out later on so that the HOPE/LIAM/STEFFY story will have been worth all the DAMN agony!!!

Enjoyed B&B (Monday) and Y&R. DAYS was ok....Hated GH

I'm ready for Deacon to come on to B&B. Well, he did today and it was FANTASTIC just as I knew it would be. Hope/Liam/Steffy...I'm so tired of them. I hope Deacon's return is an umbrella story and not just about victimizing Hope once again. I heard that Deacon was supposed to be on contract but one of the "actors" had a problem with it so he'll only be on for a few episodes. I pray that's not true.

Y&R...it's no secret I don't hate it as much as everyone else. And while I think Sharon and Victor are disgusting, I see at least a tad bit of restraint in the writing for them, which lets me know TPTB know its not something we want to see. For some reason MAB things enraging the fans is something good, but it's NOT. Anyway, aside from that, I'm pretty much enjoying the rest of the show.

DAYS is the show I catch occasionally. When I do watch it, it's just an okay show. It's not bad...it's not great. I can't say it sucks because i'm not as emotionally connected to it as I am the CBS soaps. So I don't understand some of it. I think if I were to watch another soap full time it would be DAYS....

which leads me to GH

-_- thats all I have to say.

4 stories that just bore me to death on Y&R:

1) Anything with Cane and his family. The actors and writers have not shown how this family or characters are viable to the canvas. Cane being accepted so willingly into the Chancellor and Jill's life are ridiculous and his LOVEY-DOVEY scenes with Lily and his UNDYING love for her (all whispered, of course) annoy me to tears.

2) Sharon and all her bad and IDIOTIC choices in men and then the rationalization of them all. The farmer in New Mexico, no matter how bland he was, was a good match for her because he had no major EVIL skeletons in his closet.

3) Anything regarding Nikki and Victor. ENOUGH ALREADY. Stop saying you are FINALLY over the moustache or the blonde twit stripper if the very next day you are hugging her and then the next day calling her a WHORE or him a BASTARD!

4) Beauty of Nature. Marriages happen QUICKER on this show then resolutions of who owns this DUMB COMPANY!!!

Bill apparently doesn't know how crazy Deacon is. Have fun with that dude,while you can. Bill will regret this and I'm ever so glad.

CarTini? They need to have a seat. I too
think Starr will fall for Johnny.she has no chemistry with Michael. Starr and Johnny,gross. He has been calling her a little girl since she hit town. I only good Johnny goes on a Klingon spree and rids me of some of these goofy characters.

The cast of this show should revolve around SAMI, LUCAS, WILL and MARLENA. I am bored with most of the Brady's but understand keeping Bo and Hope but lets have Roman killed off in a final battle with Stefano. John, of course, would have to stay with Marlena.

Let's recast Carrie with a different actress who can handle the complexities of emotion that this heroine requires. Christie Clarke just isn't doing it anymore. Send AUstin away and then have the FBI hire back Rafe and have him bring Billie along with him.

The rest of the cast should be weened down to essentials and then hire the rest of background cast or let them walk. The show needs depth and not ridiculous-ness.

The violence on this show is reaching EPIC proportions with the new regime. Not only does Johnny shot his father in a struggle, which could be construed as an accident, but they have him shoot him at point blank range?! WHY? Couldnt Anthony just die from the one bullet wound? WHy make Johnny EVIL like Sonny?!

Remember Sonny shot his son (yeah yeah he didn't know at the time he was) at point blank range, but remember he also shot Carly in the head when she was pregnant.

This show GLORIFIES gun play and murder as a resolution for everything. Right now, we have Matt who killed Lisa. Sonny who killed numerous people, and Jason as well. We have Tracey who tried to kill Anthony. And now we have Johnny who inadvertantly killed Starr's family and now killed his own father. We had Franco and the FBI/cop.

What else is this show going to give us?! Thanks new regime.

DAYS - The CIA and the fictional ISA don't seem to work well together in the Days universe. Wouldn't there be congressional hearings about how the ISA used Billie and Shane to gather evidence when the CIA was already working on the case?

In the old days of Days, this is why they never name-checked the CIA.

Besides, the GH/Days ISA was the only spy agency in the world that hired retired hookers (Billie), rock stars(Frisco) and con agents (Anna) as spys......

"If Cane doesn’t help the government gather evidence on his mother, he
could be jailed or deported."

This could never ever happen in real life. Lazy writing. All it takes is a little research.

Stefano working for the CIA is too funny. Seriously, that is like asking a fox to guard a hen house.

The scene in which Johnny finishes off Anthony reminded me of two OLTL scenes. The first in which Hunt Block's character was literally mowed down in Todd's penthouse. The second was Todd shooting Victor.

To all Johnny fans. Your favorite character.... was always a criminal. He is the product of his crazy grandfather who had killed the woman he thought was his mother, and who had pimped out his ACTUAL mother. He tried to kill Sonny on a list of ocassions. He has been known to be an unhinged mob prince for ages now. He's not a bad boy. He's not a dark horse with a heart of gold. He is in fact a villain, a bad guy, a criminal, a monster. To say that they ruined him would be to completely overlook the exact premise and history of the character - a character who walks around on roof tops for a rush and has the most effed up family history ever played out in the past five years on this show. Him shooting his 'father'/grandfather is really him finally releasing himself from under that negative, dangerous hold WHILE also making him except the darkness of his family. He has always been a character whos truggled with this darkness and it was a matter of time. Of all the characters who could walk away from the mob, Jason and Sonny are more likely to walk away than Johnny. So don't pretend like he was brought as some siantly puppy dog. Every human being has good and bad sides, just because you see his good sides doesn't mean you can ignore all the negatives in the past five years and cry boohoo when he takes the role he was born to have due to his craycray upbringing. It's like being a Sonny fan and crying foul when he shoots someone.

As a longtime, devoted DAYS fan, I cannot seem to muster the strength to watch the show. Every time I have tried, I am bored beyond relief. Recording and fast-forwarding is no help. Man, not too long ago I was hailing DAYS resurgence but now, I'd rather watch Y&R! =-(

@David: Can you start writing my stories for me?? Cuz your stuff is about a thousand times better than the garbage on our screens.
