Fell flat. (Soaps.com)
Week of September 20 – 24:
I had trouble with the Jackie, Owen, and Rick stuff this week on The Bold and the Beautiful, but the latest scenes between Stephanie and Brooke, as always, were intense and incredible to watch. Check out my thoughts below:
The Younger Set.
As readers know, I’m a fan of the blossoming love between Hope and Liam, but some of the dialogue from the younger set sounds like it’s from a bygone era! The confrontation during which Oliver whined to Liam, “You stole my girl,” (circa 1950) really made me do a double-take. The flower-y romantic talk between Hope and her suitors is a bit much as well. More realism in the dialogue would make their interactions better for me.
Steffy Sets Her Sights…
…on Hope’s boyfriend of course. I’m not sure I want to go down this road again, but Steffy certainly does spice up a storyline, you have to give her that! As for Taylor, is it wrong to feel that a shrink shouldn’t be enabling her daughter? I understand her need to defend Steffy to Brooke, but she seems to be in a fog sometimes when Steffy’s misguided intentions are pretty obvious; I mean, Steffy all but came out and said she would take Liam away from Hope because of the Spencer name – is that healthy? Really? I’d like Taylor to be sharper and more involved. Mother and daughter conflict can be very interesting!
I’m loving the new angle that Thomas is creating within the Logan/Forrester war. The writers did a great job with the casting of ‘NuThomas’, and the dynamic of a Forrester siding with the Logans evens things up and keeps it fresh!
Liam and Bill.
I see conflict ahead as these two are fundamentally different people in spite of their sudden desire to forge a relationship. I'm excited to see what the storyline will bring!
Brooke and Stephanie.
Who can look away when these two are onscreen together? One of the most compelling things about this 'pairing' is that they can be battling it out one minute, and seem bizarrely caring and close the next - and we eat it up in equal measure. Who else would we want by Stephanie's side when she receives this dreadful diagnosis? These two are the perfect illustration of the fine line between love and hate. Bravo to the intensity and drama this week. Can't wait for what's ahead...
This utterly goofy storyline is falling flat with me. Not only was it almost embarrassing to watch Jackie, Owen, and Rick in the 'statue' scenes, but the premise of Rick flat out informing Owen that he should be with Bridget and he'll look after Jackie is ridiculous! Who does this? What about love...and the fact that Jackie and Owen are married? Sorry, just can't get into this at all. What did you think of the Greek God scenes?
