It’s an adaptation of the Australian Upper Middle Bogan show that Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope wrote. It’s a great show.

Its great! Y&R tends to dismiss talent left and right and others with a knack for talent tend to swoop them up? Remember we lost LT. Harding to! He and Fish were great together and Courtney and Noah were TEN times better than Noah and Marissa!

JUST the fact that she and Marco were in cahoots should be reason enough. Funny, Noah wants his grandpa to pay for his actions but Marissa is part of the Victor fiasco! Drop the woman and go hit on one of your dad’s waitresses at the Underground which we never see anymore and thankfully so!

I was hoping that the writers would tie up the loose ends with Courtney Summer’s boyfriend.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.
