Quote yrw1020: The story lines on this show are so predictable you can drive a truck right through it. We live in a society where there are great movies with excellent plots and a lot of omg, I didn't see that coming. I use to watch Big Love on HBO every week because it kept me on my seat and always had an interesting twist to it. Soaps on the other hand are so predictable until it almost insults your intelligence. This whole Steffy/Bill/Hope/Liam situations is so redicilous. Now fan or not if Steffy was your friend, I know you would be saying, you have lost your everloving mind. You don't accept a proposal from someone who just received a break up call from someone else. Especially since this person is supposed to be so called family. And Taylor is not being the type of mom she should be, she should not allow her daughter to chase unavailable men the way she does. Taylor said to Brooke on Friday, oh yeah like you know about bounderies (or something like that) so deep down Taylor has resentment and in a way she is glad that Steffie is sticking it to the Logans but at what expense. No mother under any circumstances will allow their child to act that way. I know Steffie is a grown woman but sometimes you have to tell your children what's best whether they want to hear it or not and not say, well I support you and all the while knowing in your heart that this is way too soon and not even right.
I want to promote a topic where there is no deflection on any other characters while providing your thoughts but do you think it is truly something wrong with how Steffie can switch her emotions so intensly from one man to another? I am not bashing this character; however, this is so unrealistic, Taylor needs to be a mother, not a friend. And I know it would be easy to bring Brooke and Hope in this situation and that will be for another time and we can certainly dicuss them both respectfully. I just wanted to bring this up becuase I see alot of posts where people said the same lines about Steffy and Bill that they are now saying about Steffy and Liam and I do sometimes wonder if we are all watching the same soap. I found it disturbing the way Bill called her to come to the bachelor party and then gave directives, go take my son home and then in the car she kept at Liam so intensly and begged for a kiss. Then she cried and told Bill that she is going to leave Liam alone. Then in the next scene she is standing in Liam's house witnessing his phone conversation with Hope (the break up). I was thinking to myself, did you just tell Bill that you were going to leave Liam alone, now you are standing in the man's house. And finally, she tried to school Liam before Taylor arrived to Liam's house by saying, my mom is going to ask you did I take you away from Hope. Come on people, if Steffie was truly your friend and again we are only talking about Steffy, you truly would not be rooting for her and if you did you would be talking about her behind her back talking about what a fool she is. I don't want to see anyone like that and why did Taylor yet again go to FC looking for Ridge, isn't she about to dethrone him. Right is Right, I know theya are going to write this storyline as if Ridge is against Steffie and for Hope, but lets be honest Liam did belong to Hope first and Steffie did not let up on the man, she was intentional and intense.
You know you are Bashing Taylor and her kids.
In my opinion, Hope was not married to Liam so why not. By the way Brooke did worst and Ridge was married two different times.
Taylor did what a mother should. She questioned Liam and she cautioned Liam and Steffy about being engaged. Whereas Brooke wants Taylor to have a meeting of minds against her daughter. LOL I don't agree with a lot that Steffy does but it is very iritating to read that it is ok for Brooke and have the same poster bash
Taylor and her children.
This particular soap does need some new writers if it wants to survive. Viewers are too savvy to fall for some of the same old storylines of yester year. Instead of personal conflicts, there needs to be some business conflicts and maybe some political drama. Taylor doesn't need to have a man in her life. In Today's world there are women who have a life without a husband. Why can't she be a character patterned after Ivana Trump? Taylor could bring new characters to the show. Some mysterious; some funny. Brooke and Ridge can be happy while their children are in lots of drama. the conflict with Hope and Steffy happens in real life, but the love triangle between Steffy, Hope and Liam happened too fast. RJ should be introduced to the viewers slowly not thrown in our face like Hope. Why not show RJ going to school or playing with a friend because if I am not mistaken RJ and Hope were close enough in age to have been play mates. Not a lot of viewing time but let us see RJ before he is running a fashion show right out of high school. How about a drug problem or may be he could be Bill Gates type and he could get in trouble hacking. Writers don't' realize that the viewer have a hard time connecting to a character when the character just shows up and takes on a big role.
I love Bill and Steffy together. If the writers do this right it could be the next BIG soap couple like Luke and Laura (GH) in the 80's. I read that Ron Moss didn't like the s/l so that is when the story did a complete 180 and joined Steffy, Hope and Liam. Not my favorite story.
I have to say that I did like Brooke today. She has always bullied Taylor. She is enjoyable to watch when she is not with Ridge.
The s/l with Thorne and Taylor is boring and predictable. I hope they don't end up married. Thorne and Taylor are both victims on The BnB and this can only end with one of them or both getting hurt. Hope not, but I see the same old s/l coming up.
I agree the writers need to be more creative and remember the viewers are more savvy than in years past.
