DAYS BYTES: Thank goodness we’re getting more Will (Chandler Massey) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) scenes. I was going through withdrawals. DAYS has been very dialogue heavy lately, but unlike much of it, I actually want to watch Will and Marlena’s exchanges.
Will to Marlena: “No offense, but for a very smart therapist, you’re beginning to sound a lot like my fortune cookie.”
You go Nicole (Arianne Zucker)! Keep EJ’s (James Scott) feet to the fire. Forgiveness is overrated in soaps.
Rafe (Galen Gering) is so good with Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) kids.
Rafe coming to Nicole’s defense has way more possibilities than Dr. Hairy Chest (Shawn Christian). Rafe and Nicole certainly have much better chemistry than Rafe and Carrie (Christie Clark). Who do you want Nicole with: EJ, Dr. Hairy Chest (Shawn Christian), Rafe or someone else?
Is it just me or is the door of the pub Stefano (Joseph Mascolo), John (Drake Hogestyn) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) are frequenting in Alamainia, the same one used for the DiMera mansion?
Days of Our Lives can never go wrong with Tom (MacDonald Carey) and Alice Horton (Frances Reid) flashbacks! Never.
GH BYTES: I’m so accustomed to seeing Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) looking like the Shaggy Dog, that I’m have a time adjusting to his more clean cut hair style. I realize a father and son’s relationship evolves over time, but I miss the days when Dante didn’t give a second thought to locking up Sonny (Maurice Benard).
Carly’s (Laura Wright) little schemes rarely work out the way she plans. Of course she thought she could pull off sneaking in to see Jason (Steve Burton)!
Whether it is on One Life to Live or General Hospital, the amazing father/daughter dynamic between Starr (Kristen Alderson) and Todd (Roger Howarth) never fades.
Watch your back Sonny, Todd is a gunning for you, literally.
I am ecstatic General Hospital’s ratings have started going up. Let’s hope it continues, because heaven knows this show needs a lot of physical therapy to recover from the damage Garin Wolf did to it.
B&B BYTES: Phyllis Diller, what a legendary gem. The soundtrack The Bold and the Beautiful is using for Diller’s scenes is killing me. I'm laughing so hard. Anyone else dazzled by the awesomeness of the bling she's sporting.
Eric (John McCook): “Would you like to get married for our anniversary?”
Stephanie (Susan Flannery): “No sweetheart, you’re a terrible husband.”
Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang): “I can’t believe your mother, of all people, is living in sin.”
Stephanie: “We’re not married, we’re just shacking up.”
One thing you have to hand B&B, it knows how to pull off anniversary episodes. Having Brooke wake up from a bad dream is an excellent way to get the ball rolling.
It’s the morning after the biggest event in B&B's history, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Kim Matula) “wedding night.” Was Liam disappointed? I know I’ll be disappointed if the show spends too much time dwelling on Hope's first time, like it's some epic event of The Lord of the Rings proportions. I’m surprised someone wasn’t hovering over the bed as they made love, whispering “my precious.”
Is Hope having buyer’s remorse? Sure sounds like it.
Y&R BYTES: The only thing I thoroughly enjoyed about Thursday’s The Young and the Restless was Ashley (Eileen Davidson) vs. Jill (Jess Walton). Then again, I’m always a sucker for corporate storylines, and it doesn’t hurt one bit that these two share so much history.
Ashley: “I’m asking you nicely. Please don’t overstep again or we’re going to have a really big problem.”
I’m sure there is more to the story of Kevin’s (Greg Rikaart) quickie marriage. I love me some Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson), Daniel (Michael Graziadei) and Kevin, but does anyone care? Seeing this storyline just makes me wish Daniel was with Lily (Christel Khalil), Chloe was with Billy (Billy Miller) and Kevin was given some time to catch his breath. No one deserves to hop from one insipid storyline to another. All three need to be in primetime series.
As much as I loathe this Angelina storyline, I think I’m beginning to succumb to Diana DeGarmo’s charm in the role. What is happening to me?
The look on Gloria’s (Judith Chapman) face when Kevin kissed Angelina was hilarious.
Would you like to see a Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Harmony (Debbi Morgan) pairing?
Why is Cane (Daniel Goddard) working for Jabot, when Billy isn’t? It just rubs me the wrong way how Jill favors Cane over her real son and heir.
