TG publicly stated that he'd come back for a good story, but it now seems more likely that a portion of the show's savings from not paying SB has been used to get TG on a flight from Amsterdam for a short-term return to the show.

ABC may not want to tell stories of former rapists, but they won't turn down a potential big sweeps story.

Kristina Wagner is there for the upcoming "Who killed Peter?" mystery. She will play a major role, I predict, either because she will have murdered him to protect Maxie and keep him from the baby (it's all going to come out before Peter dies) OR because she will confess because she thinks Maxie was the murderer and, with all of her guilt about Maxie, she wants to protect her.

Also, I think I've finally figured out what Sonny the mobster imports: black market crystal, like counterfeit Waterford, or something. Because he throws enough of them against the wall he must have an endless supply. Also, if he "loves" his kids so much having bits of broken crystal everywhere is not great for them.

Hmm, just what was inside that little prescription bag that Esme picked up today? The one that the nurse warned her was very strong and she should talk to the pharmacist about its proper usage. I'm thinking some kind of sedative and she's planning on using it on someone up at the cabin. She said to the nurse not to worry she's very familiar with it....if what R33 said is true, maybe she doped up her parents to cause their accident.

It's like the mentions of Llanview and the Tan-O -- it cost the producers nothing and tricked OLTL audiences into tuning in. The bottom line is that they disrespect their audiences. What audiences want is satisfying stories told about their favorite actors and characters. They can be improbable but they have to be well told. That's what's missing -- good storytelling.

by Anonymousreply 100January 14, 2022 6:24 PM

Felicia is an Aztec princess, which is the storyline that kicked her off on the show (when she and Frisco got involved and he sang "Lady of My Heart" to her constantly).

Because of network interference, Felicia was never around when Maxie and Georgie were young adults on the canvas, which was written as Felicia gallivanting with Frisco (who'd long since abdicated parental interest in his kids to be a full-time WSB agent). So, when Georgie was brutally murdered, Maxie publicly pilloried Felicia, who took it like a doormat.

Her baby voice remains a mystery, but she's always sounded like that.

Felicia is considered bubbly; not baby voiced. She does have some good acting moments but is mostly pretty which has its place.

She is an Aztec princess.

I wouldn’t say network interference was the culprit of her absence; more that she wasn’t connected to sonny. She was lazily written off as visiting her grandmother for years and, when she returned, was treated like the bad mother she was written to be. A La lucky Spencer if he ever returns.

She is a nice connection to history, explains why we tolerate Maxie’s mediocrity, should be more involved with Kevin/Ryan, and is welcome any time.

by Anonymousreply 104January 14, 2022 8:15 PM

When Brian Frons took over at ABC Daytime head in 2002, Kristina Wagner was 40 years old. Frons decided she was no longer a viable leading lady and they shouldn't write for Felicia anymore, aside from an occasional supporting appearance.

Same thing happened with Jackie Zeman who was turning 50 about the time Frons took over. Frons said Bobbie should no longer be considered a main character and should be supporting only. He likely would have written her out entirely but Bobbie is Carly's mother.

Of course, no longer having to write for Bobbie or Felicia suited Bob Guza just fine. More time to devote to his mob fantasies.

And of course given her track record for being supportive of female actresses, JFP wasn't going to stand up for Jackie Zeman or Kristina Wagner.

R105 I've said it before and I mean it, I try hard not to hate anyone, but I fucking loathe Brian Frons. And, if hell is real, I hope Satan and his minions take extra pleasure in roasting him for eternity. After all, thanks to DAYS, I'm sure the Devil is a soap fan.

It is stupid anyways, older characters male and female have always been the major drivers of soaps and are usually fan favorites that are missed by fans young and old when they aren't there. I'm sure his hatred of older actresses explains why OLTL was cancelled despite increasing in viewers, which is unusual. It is rare to cancel a soap that just posted an increase in viewers and such an event would usually save it for at least another season. But, the stars of OLTL were and remained Vicki and Dorian, no matter which younger newer actresses they brought on, they were the stars and there were nothing he could do about that other than cancelling the show. The only other actresses that were considered stars of OLTL were Blair and Tea, and they were at least in their 40s by the time it was cancelled. Star was liked but she wasn't a "star," she was liked because we watched her grow up on the show not because she was a great actress. The same was true about AMC, people wanted to see Erica Kane in front burner storylines, you couldn't sideline her into the grandmother Mona role, because the fans wouldn't accept it.

R108 JFP gets some blame, but she couldn't have been the bitch she was without support from Frons.

Britt just brought up the fact that she, too, is a convicted felon. Wouldn't that mean that hanging out with her is a violation of Brad's parole, just like it was for Sam with Jason?

by Anonymousreply 129January 16, 2022 7:32 AM

Probably r129 but you know Britt would probably look for a way to see her bff Brad.

GH, Y&R and Days were nominated for a WGA award while B&B once again chose to not submit anything.

There probably are r121 and within the industry although there are many who aren't. For example there was a rumor that there was quite a number in the industry who felt disgusted by Days of Our Lives "Necktie Killer" storyline because they felt at that time the show and its head writers were promoting homophobia, misogyny and didn't stand up to the homophobes.I

I don't think Chad is a conservative because his possible alleged soon to be ex-wife is most certainly not but I could be wrong.

by Anonymousreply 130January 16, 2022 10:57 AM

R130 maybe that's why they're divorcing. I could not stop thinking that Chad looks like Ellen in his wedding photos.

When I frequented the FrauCentral boards (perhaps some of you Dataloungers were writing there at the time), I remember a few comments talking about the then head writer (during the necktie killer storyline) as historically not favoring gay storylines. Then BAM, Will Horton became Ben's victim

Britt and Drew make sense in terms of availability, looks match and age-appropriateness, but Drew is bland AF. I can't imagine anything remotely resembling witty banter between them, and Britt is all about the snark and the sass. She needs somebody with a little edge. As much of a directionless flop the character of Austin has been, those two actually worked pretty well together in that regard.

I have a feeling whoever it is, it's going to lead to some very awkward situations. In the three seconds it took Portia to set up that profile, there's no way the topic of Terry's gender/sexuality was appropriately addressed. Is it even common knowledge at the hospital, or only to her close friends? To the best of my knowledge, it's never even been mentioned if she prefers to date guys or girls. I think the issue of surgical status would be too touchy for the show, but IRL the actress refers to herself as "transfeminine" as opposed to "transsexual," which would indicate no surgery.

[quote]What is the difference between transfeminine and transvestite?...

This is a bit over simplified, but the Cliff Notes version: Transvestite = dress up only. Often still present as male part time. Can even be straight men with a fetish who still prefer sex with women. Transfeminine = feels strongly identified with female characteristics and living female full time, but comfortable enough with their bio-maleness to not feel the need for full trans surgery (transsexual).

GH should beg Miller to come back as Drew. I really liked him, although it was not with Sam that I liked him. I don't like Sam with anyone, and certainly not with Carly. I don't like Carly with anyone either. My favorite Drew pairing was with his adopted brother Franco. He actually got a little acting out of RH. I say fuck that no rapist shit because they'd take Luke back in a heartbeat, besides Franco has that brain tumor excuse and change RH back into Franco, just before Liz and Finn are about to marry, and build up a story between the two brothers, revisit the Franco being raped as a kid. That extreme kind of tragic story seemed to get even RH to put a little effort into his acting. At the same time Drew too can be suffering PTSD from any number of things he's been through. Not every man on the show has to have a love interest, female or male. I would also be thrilled to see Dr. O and Scott's reaction to Franco returning and Liz's kids.

If I was writing it Gladys would launch an all out attack on BLQ. And, in the middle of her attacks, Spencer while working at Ava's Gallery would discover video files that show it was Esme who locked them in and caused the problems.

It is clear that will have to come out at some point. They made it a plot point that it was caused by them being locked in the room preventing access to medical attention. There is no way that is just going to be left dangling.

So I could see her orchestrating something to drive Elizabeth and Finn apart. If Victor is in PC, it would be wise to assume Cassandra is as well, we just haven't seen her. She was also a drug kingpin, maybe she is the one coming after Sonny?

In regards to TG's health and ability to travel: I imagine they could even do a few things locally at a production studio in Amsterdam and edit it in. It could especially work if it was just shots of him alone in a cell or with a random guard or two. Emma Samms could be worked into it, too (if that's the direction they're going in) as it's a lot easier to hop from London to Amsterdam than it is to go all the way to LA.

I really wanted to see the rest of Helena's video.

by Anonymousreply 248January 23, 2022 9:57 AM

R248 = Me too. Funny how Laura didn't want to hear the rest of it. There was always the rumors of Laura being pregnant with twins and one of them was Nik..This would have been the perfect time for Helena to have revealed it...I like Laura but she did sleep with both of Helena's sons so I really don't see how Laura thinks she has the high road.. And Laura Cassadine also used to go shopping in the finest shops of Greece and spent plenty of Cassadine money (Helena has thrown it up in Lauras face in the past). Laura willingly married Stavros---LINK....

What happened to the nuLucas recast?

Frankie Valentini dumped him after their one night stand.

How do you figure r238??

I thought is sucked how they ended the episode on Sonny and Snaggletooth. It should have ended with Laura’s goodbye to Luke.

R249 That was wayyy before my time BUT I would love to watch those episodes--not on my PC. I wish Pluto would run OLD episodes of GH and Y&R instead of Y&R from 5 years ago. I mean...who re-watches episodes from 2018?

R254 Surprisingly, in the US, it is much easier to find classic episodes of the British soap Emmerdale than it is to find American ones. You can find seasons of Emmerdale from the 1990s-present day on several free streaming services. How can they manage it but the US soaps can't. And, it isn't just music rights, because I've seen older episodes of it that included popular music, on the radio or in the background of the pub.

I don’t know why the show is pushing Sonny and Carly as a couple when they’ve never had chemistry with Laura Wright in the role.

by Anonymousreply 256January 24, 2022 11:05 PM

Well, LW's been on the show for 16 years paired with Sonny. Maybe they'll figure it out in another 16 years

Laura had decent chemistry with Ingo, but they didn't leave Carly and Jax paired for too long.

Laura also had great chemistry with Sean Kanan, but show didn't want to explore Carly and AJ either.

by Anonymousreply 258January 25, 2022 6:40 AM

R258 She also had chemistry with Todd and later Franco. But, because of the character's history the Franco relationship didn't make sense.

So, did the show blow its budget for recurring characters on Friday?

Lucas was missing. Lucy was missing. Ned wasn't there to support his mother.

Monica was never close with Luke, but you'd think she'd show up support her sister-in-law.

At least they had Scorpio there. And very clever having Luke's ashes blow in Scotty's eyes.

by Anonymousreply 260January 25, 2022 3:49 PM

R260 Yes, Monica was a stupid omission. He did live in HER HOUSE for years. She should've been there for Tracy AND Bobbie. Monica and Bobbie have been shown to be friends but they are also long time colleagues. Ned's absence also was notable. Also, what about Elizabeth and his grandson Jake or his adopted grandson Cameron? It was also strange to hear Spencer describe Luke the way he did, considering his name comes from him.

I loved seeing Helena again. Constance Towers seems to be in great health and I hope this isn't the last we've seen of her.

I wonder, since they are building up a huge mob story and Tracy is back in town, will there be any mention of her time as the head of a mafia family?

Jennifer Smith is an interesting character, she was first played by the actress Lisa Marie who later married Tim Burton, then she was played by Sally Struthers and Roseanne before the current actress Holly Gagnier took over the role in 2015. Gagnier was one of the actresses that played Cassie on OLTL.

by Anonymousreply 261January 25, 2022 4:23 PM

R261 It was a different Lisa Marie who was with Tim Burton. I don't think they ever married.

A huge mob story? GH does huge sets and small payoffs.

I can’t watch Holly Gagnier with that terrible hack job on her face.

I called it above. I still think HAT guy is the mobster sniffing around Port Charles. Jennifer Smith's call was to him. Just speculation.

R262 You are right google just brought up both and mixed them together. I didn't realize there were so many actresses with that name. The Burton one didn't marry him they were just "partners."

Boy, oh, boy, Alexis and Harmony's scene today came off like a couple of star-crossed lovers whose families won't let them be together. Shades of Romeo and Juliet. And tell me the writers weren't trolling us with that bit about Alexis and the Port Charles women's basketball team named The PRIDE!

Did anybody get a clear look at the label on Esme's pill bottle? Sort of look like "Tramazone" which might be a mash-up of Trazodone and Tramadol. The way they showed them right next to a brand new smartphone makes me think her plan is to get somebody knocked out and post compromising pictures online through a burner so she can't be connected.

Trina and Cameron are going to fuck. Esme will photograph it and show Joss. Chaos ensues.

Nothing interesting ever happens with the GH teens...Every couple of years their latest Gay Friend (who pretends to be straight) kicks the bucket.

by Anonymousreply 273January 26, 2022 5:46 AM

R273 The point is they aren't "teens" anymore. They are now in college. Spencer and Esme are sexually active and Cam and Joss are suspected to be by their mothers. This will probably be the storyline where they fully transition from teen to young adult storylines.

by Anonymousreply 274January 26, 2022 2:25 PM

Hmmm. I was 17-18-19 in college. Pretty sure college can be teens.

by Anonymousreply 275January 26, 2022 10:24 PM

R275 Yes they are teens but from a story stand point you are allowed, on soaps, to do more with the characters once they reach college age than you are when they are in high school, especially in today's climate. They are still teens but are considered young adults. Just like an 18 year old is still a teen but can join the military and fight and kill for the country.

Also, apparently this thread is now paywalled and people are on the other thread now.

Teens are teens.

by Anonymousreply 277January 26, 2022 10:53 PM

R277 except they aren't. Write a show about high school teens having sex and doing drugs, like Skins, and you are accused of child pornography. Set the show in college with 18 year-olds and you are fine. There is a difference between how high schoolers are allowed to be portrayed and how college students are portrayed.

At 18, society has decided you are an adult. 17 and below you are a child. Just like you can go out and have all the sex you want with an 18 year old, but below that you can't in most instances.

And, I know R240 posted that in anticipation of the thread being paywalled. I was just announcing it is currently paywalled because those of us who are subscribers do not know when that happens.
