At first glance I thought it was a younger picture of Lisa Bonet.

Emma,Xander and now Zoe? I am all for a fresh face or 2 but slow down B&B! And contract? Lets not dump our vets! The show is only 30mins!

I agree. Quinn and Eric are AWOL. Thorne is on a bit more now, but why is he involved in Hope’s line? I guess she’ll put Emma’s nose out of joint.

I think Kiara’s eyebrows are too much and takeover her face.

Never heard of her. I hate when they bump up the teens for summer. Use the characters already on the canvas. Where are Quinn and Eric? Shouldn’t Quinn be involved in Bill using and dumping her son, Wyatt????

I’m all for this. I love when they use fresh faces and stories during the summer. If they didn’t, it would be the same old merry go round with the vets.

I agree. How many viewers under 60 care one whit about great grandpa, Eric? How many times do we have to pretend that Bill is still a stud and Brook is still a femme fatale? It’s freaking absurd.
My objection to the newbies is where is Nicole? Why didn’t they just write for her? She is talented and familiar. We don’t need Emma nor, this new girl. And give Carter a story! I don’t care about this new guy. Nobody on the current writing staff has enough skill to make these new characters compelling before the audience they were hired to cultivate, returns to school. It’s almost July. Forget all these new characters. Ratings will continue to drop.

I, for one, care many “whits” about Eric and I’m sure many others do. Makes no difference to me how old he is; he’s the heart/head of Forrester. Miss his presence on the show and hope he’s back soon and featured more often.

I’m speaking of viewers under sixty. Actually advertisers who pay to keep these shows on the air are the ones who don’t care what anyone over 49 thinks.

I’m way under 60 and I like him. And there are many viewers who like Laura, Scorpio, Anna, Monica, etc on GH; Anna and Laura are near 60 and Monica and Scorpio are over 70.

Eric on B&B is a great character. And while I think “Bill” is an egocentric narcissist, he IS still hot, Brooke is still quite attractive, etc. These shows are at their best when they have characters from different generations as they’ve always had since their inception.

As for advertisers, they always want to attract younger demographics… in prime time, as well. And yet prime time shows, too, have older actors/characters. If the stories are good then the viewer will be hooked, regardless of age. Soaps are not the Disney Channel nor are they on The CW or Fox (which I also watch ala The Flash, Inhumans, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, etc). Daytime soaps, no matter how many young characters they bring in, are never going to attract the viewers they did decades ago. Advertisers realize that and so do executives which is why they’re a soon-to-be bygone genre.

You make good, valid points. I maintain my views but respect yours.
I’m frustrated with the writing more than anything. The casting and who tptb chooses to showcase is secondary to the fact that the stories are lousy.

Thank you, Soapluv for your reply. Just to clarify; I’m not against new characters or younger characters. I just always have an issue when people think people are too old…in any capacity. And as I said (and, yes, this is subjective) I enjoy characters of all ages IF I like the character and the story.

As for B&B, I agree. Some of the stories are lousy or just repetitive. I wrote that to Rose several comments below.

Here’s hoping it picks up and that we have our soaps on for quite a while to come!

Thank you for the cordial exchange. 😉

Who? Oh yeah. Tis the season. Bump up young kids for the summer at the expense of the vets.

Let me see: I have a feeling that this Zoe chick has a past with…Justin. Hey…just guessing here…lol.

Later.

I’m going to assume she has a past with the new British nephew/intern, Xander. Can’t tell by the picture: is she old enough to be his mother? Not liking any of it. So let’s see; they got rid of Rick (recurring), Thomas, Zende, Nicole, RJ, Cocoa, the Spectra’s (though Sally’s back), Eric and Quinn are barely on, Charlie’s barely around…what’s left? The entire “clan” is gone and we’ve got two new interns in place of RJ and Cocoa and now another newbie.

Also think “Emma” needs a bit more acting experience; and don’t get me started on Sheryl Underwood. WHY is she on the show? The fourth wall has been broken…

Rebecca1…Agree…hoping this is just the lazy, summer interlude storyline, and will be over shortly. About the only thing I like is that Sally is back. I do like her with Wyatt. But enough kissy stuff. Let’s get Sally creative again. And enough of Hope/Steffy/Liam/ Bill.

Hi, Rose. Well, it’s a month since I posted that and to be honest, I’m enjoying this new character Zoe! She brings a weird, funky, interesting vibe. “Emma” (the actress) needs more experience; Xander is a cute addition.

I agree about Sally. Love that she’s back but not if she’s just going to be in the background. Somehow without her own company, her “gram”, Saul, Darlita; just not the same. I love Sally and don’t they should have gotten rid of her in the first place; just hope they don’t waste the character.

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such redundant dialogue on a soap before as I have with the Liam/Hope scenes. I rarely FF and I have to. It’s not a choice. 😉 Since I’ve only been watching Days for under two years it’s not that I’m sick of the Bill/Steffy/Liam/Hope thing’ it’s just the way they’re going about it. Extremely lazy writing. Seems they wrote a certain number of lines that they repeat over and over again. Sort of like some song lyrics but at least I can dance to those!

Rebecca1…I think Zoe does have an exotic air about her. I don’t particularly like the character, but she is really interesting and shakes it up in an otherwise same-old, same-old B&B. I do like how she can hold her own/dominate a scene even with the more experienced actors around her. Quite a feat for a summer newbie.

I’d like it if Sally and Wyatt decided to start their own offshoot design company, and bring the rest of Sally’s “family” back?

My thoughts on the B&B characters…is it my imagination that they have to work with less established, major actors than GH? And with these actors they get more air time than those left on GH? Maybe that’s why they keep recycling Liam, Steffy, Hope and Bill. But I am bored with them, and who loves who, etc. You can always predict what will probably happened for the next few weeks.

rebecca1

Hey again, Rose.

I’m not sure about your question. Did you mean that the established, experienced actors on B&B have scenes with less experienced actors or that the actors in general are less established, experienced. If it’s the latter, no; I don’t think the B&B actors are less established. Most of them are from other soaps and are excellent in their own right. If for some reason they were off B&B I’d love to see any of them on GH. And, of course, we can’t compare shows or cast. B&B is only a half hour and they have a much smaller cast.

I actually still like the show but the Liam, Hope, Steffy thing is ridiculous. Things are about to shake up though as Steffy decides to be with Bill. That should be interesting and create soapy drama.

I like the idea of Wyatt and Steffy going out on their own. He’s great at PR; did a great job with promoting Steffy. But, still, Sally would need capital to bring back her staff.

Funny how easily both he and Katie got over each other; how quickly Sally got over Thomas while she was still “in love” with Liam. And, don’t you think Liam should have defended Sally when she was accused of sending the threats? I mean, c’mon!!!! They got so close; he didn’t know her enough to know she wouldn’t do that? That was also ridiculous.

Rebecca1…My question really isn’t very clear. you know, mixing up one word when you mean another can make a big difference! It should read ” they have to work with “fewer” than “less” established major actors than on GH.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
