DC #700: Read, Write and Erase



On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels discuss the latest The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:

Stephanie dies in Brooke’s arms at Big Bear on The Bold and the Beautiful. What did the DC gang think of Stephanie’s passing and how it compared to Edward’s death and funeral on General Hospital? Less than 24 hrs after Stephanie’s death, Brooke was already kissing Bill.

Brady and Kristen sizzle on Days of Our Lives. Gabi’s pregnancy storyline is plodding along. Darren Brooks sends out a tweet teasing a possible DAYS return.

The Quartermaine family gathered to mourn Edward passing away on General Hospital. With the Quartermaine patriarch gone, the fight for control of ELQ kicks off. Thanks to Edward’s will, Sam holds the key to whoever wins the struggle. Maxie offers to be Lulu and Dante’s surrogate on General Hospital.

Jack continues to pop pills, but will his enemies use his weakness to their advantage and wrestle control of Newman from him. Could Kyle and Phyllis end up together? Should The Young and the Restless have used Victoria’s kidnapping to kill her off?

All this and much more on today’s show!

Wow, missed you guys...

GH: LoL @JillianBowe Leave Skye alone, I consider her a Quartermaine just on the pure fact that she had enough sense to get out of Pine Valley when she did before they unleashed the Cambias clan, Ryan's sperm, Erica's un-abortion, and the Satin Slayer with poisonous pancakes on the poor citizens of Pine Valley!!! Skye is Quartermaine, through and through, in my opinion. But overall, the tribute to Edward was really good; I nearly bawled my eyes out when I saw Edward and Lila walk up those stairs!!! And unfortunately, @LukeKerr black people can really cause a lot of drama before, during and after a funeral; I experienced this after my grandmother's recent passing; but yeah, people have no problem raising hell at funerals. Also, someone mentioned that Edward managed to reacquire all the shares of ELQ that had been lost to others, including Carly (who got 30% after her divorce from Lorenzo) and Sonny (who bought Jason's). Luke, when it comes to Edward's illegitimate children inheriting, I think the only people mentioned in the will are the people who actually kept up a relationship with the family, and actually wanted a relationship with Edward which makes sense why Maya Ward was mentioned, but her mother, Faith Ward, wasn't. @JillianBowe, I like Ellie at first, but she is actually mirroring Spinelli, and it's kinda annoying. THANK U JILLIAN and MEL, Shawn and Carly would be freaking amazing!!!! Todd and Carly are ok, but they don't have as much chemistry as SHARLY did Luke.

Y&R: LoL, when it comes to Y&R, Chelsea is the shit; I am absolutely loving the younger crowd, NuNoah, NuSummer, and NuFen are very interesting; Sharon/Adam, I don't wanna see them; I like Neil/Leslie, I HATE LILY AND CANE, I like Devon, but I wish they would write him better. Maybe with Marcy Rylan coming back, we can get a Devon/Abby/Carmine triangle, with Devon winning Abby. Kevin Fisher NEEDS to die; I hate what they are doing to Jack, but I know Peter Bergman is going to kill. Kyle and Phyllis are hot... Trust me @LukeKerr, they didn't bring Robert Adamson on as Noah for nothing.

Days: I'm really bored; I mean the stories are there, but they are being written very poorly. I would say it's the acting, but all the actors can't be bad. Daniel Jonas, needs to die, and I'm sorry @JameyGiddens, I know you love Jennifer, but she can die with Daniel; they bore the shit out of me. Nicole and Eric are kinda interesting right now, I'm hoping Eric's nightmares are about him screwing Nicole; RAFE NEEDS TO DIE, and have Lucas replace Rafe. Kristen and Marlena are interesting, but Kristen and Brady are hot.

Loved the podcast....and I am with Luke Kerr regarding GH and the reading of the will. They outlined on the show how the percentages are split out, so it is a part of the storyline. as a result, it is fair game to question their math.

The will said "living grandchildren", so that means that all of his living grandchildren should qualify. Further, they spoke about Jason, and since Jason isn't declared dead, he gets a piece which goes to Sam. And that makes no sense. So does that mean once Jason is declared dead, all Sam gets is the piece for Daniel? I mean, since he died prior to Edward, I think a case can be made for that.

Further, if Sonny has stock, and the other day Carly said that she manages Michael's stock....are we talking about multiple sets of stock or different types of stock? None of this makes sense. The writers opened this can of worms by divying out percentages and talking about math, so the least they can do is clear this all up.

Congrats to the 700th podcast guys!

I have to disagree with Jillian on Skye though. She's a Quartermaine IMO. I hated it when they changed the story after Tracy returned to Port Charles, but still in my mind she's a Quartermaine in every way it counts. For me she became Alan's daughter in 2001 and that never changed.

I don't know why B&B constantly is passing on great story opportunities. And you guys put it perfectly with bringing Amber back and bringing back the Brooke/Amber rivalry. It was so perfect back in the day. And they are passing on that for a couple of good-looking newbies and this outdone Brooke/Taylor rivalry!? I don't get this show sometimes where talented people like Lesli Kay and Adrienne Frantz are put on recurring while we see yet another round of Liam/Hope/Steffy.

Y&R is doing nicely rebuilding Sharon/Adam relationship, while making Chelsea a more complex character. With her background she could easily become a good villain for the show and a major threat to Sharon/Adam.
I hate the fact that the Newman family can still attack Sharon though without looking at themselves and what damage they have done to this woman. Nikki attacking Sharon in front of Noah while Victoria wishes she would just abandon her kids was shocking to see and hear.
And again ... nobody stood up for her. It was Sharon who had to stop & leave the cocktail party. Just another day for the self-righteous Newmans.

Kristen and Brady are great on DAYS while I have to say that Greg Vaughn seems to have no chemistry with anyone. The Nicole/Eric pairing isn't doing it for me. I was excited in the beginning because I liked Nicole/Eric 1.0 ... but this. And you guys are right, Eric only is a priest for plot so he and Nicole can't jump into bed too fast.

LOL@ Jillian: Stephanie in the woods like a bear! LMAO @ the Smokey the Bear reference. Why did I get the image of Smokey the Bear showing up with a PSA between Stephanie's body and Brooke shaking his finger "Only you can prevent forest fires..."

B&B- Luke "Stephanie's dead, c'mon let's go..!" LOL. Is Bell that cold now?

I agree with Melodie that Y&R has been, uh, more tolerable, or some would say, less offensive than in recent years, but I don't have the will to watch this show on a regular basis anymore-- there is NOTHING happening on this darn show! And the Newmans are on every damn day! I hope Y&R will introduce some parity in the new year.

I say you DC guys just shove your way into the next Pitch Meetings for Y&R and B&B. You at least have some interesting ideas.

Can't ever quite get through the podcast...but why in hell would you kill off a legacy character like Victoria on Y and R? What would that have done to the show?

Pferrando...I hear you, I thought the same I shut it off because it was a ludicrous statement. Regardless she is a legacy character and important to boot.

I'm amazed at how after all these years there is still bitching about AH and CK on this site when there is so much more to be addressed.

Jillian... I could not agree more with how they had pure GOLD with the return of Adrienne Frantz and Jacob Young. They had the perfect formula with the Brooke/Amber rivalry. They need to utilize that. I really can't understand what even happened, because Brad Bell used to love Amber and AF. I couldn't believe he wasn't interested in writing for her but instead this vapid Caroline who serves no purpose on the show.
