Now this is a classic film moment, and being “soapified” on the August 28th episode of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, when the former host of The Price is Right and animal activist, Bob Barker returns to the soap preaching his important message about the pet population!

While the Spencer brothers Liam (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) are having a discussion, they run into Barker who is getting no respect from a mouthing off Wyatt!  In fact, Wyatt is down right demeaning to Barker and his animal platitudes!

TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan got the skinny from Barker that this whole scene is a takeoff on his classic fight with Adam Sandler in the 1996 movie Happy Gilmore!  Here are a few excerpts below!

Barker on being 90-years-old and in a fight scene with a younger man: “Well, first I had to have a talk with Darin, the actor I knocked around.  I said, “Just so we’re clear, young man, it does not say in the script that you hit back. We got that?” I win all my fights. That’s because they’re fixed!”

Barker on making another soap opera appearance to B&B:  “You want to call me a soap star? Hey, at my age, I’ll take it! I’m grateful for whatever comes my way, especially when I can get out my message about the importance of spaying and neutering animals. CBS and B&B exec producer Brad Bell have been incredible about using the soap to increase awareness. And if I get a chance to punch out a guy who thinks animal lovers are stupid wackos, even better!”

It was great to see Bob on TV again. He looks great. But they could have done him better. The pet thing is soooo old. I agree it is the dumbest thing I’ve seen on BB, today. They have had much dumber. BB is so awful it makes me want to go all Barker on my TV. lol And IMO Liam (Scott Clifton) is one of the worst actors ever. I’ve had the displeasure to see him on other shows like OLTL, and he just gets worse. I don’t know how he gets work. Why do those two seemingly intelligent women (Hope and Steph?) even like him? Even the writers probably don’t know. Why BB hasn’t been replaced with reruns of Judge Judy I don’t know. ha ha. Just sayn. 😉

B&B has lost its way in many fronts. Tho there is some nugget of excitement in the daytime drama, I just am not engaged anymore. No one does anything! And if they do, it is all about love and attraction and knee-jerk plotting without development or suspense. Yawn!

Is Brooke going to be pregnant again?

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”

DARK SHADOWS Sequel In Development By CW

What would a re-imagined Dark Shadows look now in 2020?  Well, the CW and Warner Bros Television have made a deal to develop the once uber popular ABC cult classic soap opera that aired from 1966-1971.

Now in development, the new Dark Shadows would be an hourlong.  According to Deadline, the pilot will be written by Mark B. Perry (Revenge, Ghost Whisperer and Brothers & Sisters.), so he definitely knows how to write a solid twist and turn soap.

The new Dark Shadows will be a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.

The most notable and identifiable character of them all, was of course, Barnabas Collins played by Jonathan Frid.

In a statement, Mark Perry said of bringing back Dark Shadows: “As a first-generation fan, it’s been a dream of mine to give Dark Shadows the Star Trek treatment since way back in the ’80s when Next Generation was announced, so I’m beyond thrilled and humbled to be entrusted with this resurrection.”  He went on to say: “My plan is to take as few liberties as possible with the Dark Shadows canon, while bearing in mind a quote from a 1970s episode delivered by the inimitable Oscar-nominee Grayson Hall as Dr. Julia Hoffman: ‘The Collins family history is not particularly famous for its accuracy.’”
