SOAP BYTES: Grief, Barbed Wire, Tools and Sami vs. Marlena

GH BYTES:  Mobsters don’t kill legacy characters like Robin (Kimberly McCullough), hospitals do. Knowing McCullough is actually leaving only makes watching the Scrubs scenes that much more difficult. McCullough and Robin will be sorely missed.  Jason Thompson was on fire as the grief stricken Patrick, but you can bet your last dollar, Robin’s death is going to provide John J. York, Finola Hughes and Tristan Rogers some amazing scenes too.

Watching Michael (Chad Duell) and Molly’s (Haley Pullos) cousins scenes at Alexis’ (Nancy Lee Grahn) house were thoroughly enjoyable, but only reminded us we need Lexi Ainsworth back as Kristina. 

Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) rationalizations never cease to confound me and I'm pretty good at rationalizations.


B&B BYTES: Can dimples only get you so far? Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnesWood) thinks so, but Rick (Jacob Young) seems up to the challenge.  Steffy’s onto his scheme, but will wining and dining do the trick? I must admit the chemistry between Woods and Young reminds me of Young and Melissa Claire Egan on All My Children, and even though there is an ewwww factor to Rick once again bedding his adoptive niece…the actors have chemistry.

Just how big of a tool can Liam be to the women in his life? It’s a daily question lately.

DAYS BYTES: Marlena (Deidre Hall) to Sami (Alison Sweeney) “Did you want to invite me in?” Yeah, if I had the kind of history Sami has with Marlena, I’d be a bit reluctant to invite her in too. Show of hands for all those in favor of more Marlena vs. Sami or Will (Chandler Massey) vs. Sami scenes? I’m convinced there can never be enough. Its amazing Sami doesn’t wilt under her mother’s gaze.

Austin (Patrick Muldoon) to Carrie (Christie Clark): “Life here can be distracting.” What I need is a distraction when these two share a scene.

Is Jack (Matthew Ashford) really the man Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) knew he could always be?


Y&R BYTES: Adam Newman (Michael Muhney) is trying to grope his way into repairing a barbed wire fence? SERIOUSLY?  As someone who’s actually had to do that I call b.s..  I know my fellow Daytime Confidential podcast co-hosts are over Adam and Sharon (Sharon Case), but I'm a sucker for their chemistry.

If you haven’t been tuning into The Secret Circle to see Michael Graziadei work his voodoo, you should be. Too bad he can't do something to make Daisy (Yvonne Zima) magically disappear on The Young and the Restless. Speaking of which, I'm convinced Y&R needs a giant explosion to kill off a bunch of characters. Daisy, Avery (Jessica Collins), Eden (Jessica Heap) and Angelina (Diana DeGarmo), just to name a few. Y&R has more important characters to focus on and in many cases fix.

I’m supposed to feel sympathy for Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) right? For being a character I’ve loved for years, I just can’t bring myself to care about anything related to her childhood or Avery.
