Show, Not Tell On The Bold and the Beauitful




The Forrester Four at the cabin - particularly Thomas Forrester (Drew Tyler Bell) - storyline from last week's The Bold and The Beautiful was a hot topic on today's Performer of the Week episode. Mike and I thought it was awful while Jamey pointed out that The Bold and the Beautiful continues to break the rule of show, not tell. We all agreed that the dialogue was terrible. Amazingly Hunter Tylo's acting was the best of the four, but I doubt any of us will be able to think of bear hugs the same again.

What did you think of the scenes at the cabin?

It was great, I loved it!

Welcome to the worst acting soap opera family! Sorry, but these scenes were just awful. There is no other word to say it.

In terms of character it is also appalling. The fire at the beach house and the bomb in the car were meant to "scare" Rick.

However, what about framing his Great Aunt Pam?

What beef would Thomas have with Pam?

In fact, I think it is far more devious that he framed Pam (which would indicate premeditation) than trying to scare Rick on impulse.

I'm so behind with this show, I don't know if I even want to catch up. I am have been soooo bored it's ridiculous.

has anyone else realized that we have been stuck on the same storyline since before CHRISTMAS? Pheobe's death and evil Rick. We had two weeks of Jackie M and then we all got "Sick". I am SO tired of this lousy storyline...they are capable of so much more. I guess I should be thankful this storyline involves Taylor because I love her.

Whatever happened to Owen and Bridget? Someone is asleep at the wheel over there.

Watching Morticia and Gomez bond with with car bombing Pugsley and uncle-fondling Wednesday was a real treat

Actually, Hunter wasn't bad, but it's just more silliness... I'm tired of it.

I am so , so , so sick of this shiow wraping up a storyline with weeks after they began. it's freakin' worse that ATWT, and there gettin' darn bad. I mean look we just had a whole list of suspects , what 3 weeks ago , on who was trying to "kill" rick. and now here we are , it was thomas ...the thing that's really sad to me is i knoew it was him 3 weeks ago, there was no suspense in this storyline, none. the only suspense we, the viewers are getting from this show is when is it going to be canceled (if they keep going the way they do).
