Sounds great, but I’ll be on vacation. 🙁 So I may miss it. I’ll have to try to catch it on cbs.com when I return, but now they’re charging for videos after a few days.

Congratulations B&B! I’m a rather new viewer and I am really enjoying the current storylines and cast. Wishing you many more years of engaging entertainment!

I just wish DOOL realized to do something like this for their big celebration, too..

I was about to say the same thing when I saw your post. As much as I love event episodes during milestones on soaps, a simple doc with clips and interviews can be as entertaining and often a better treat for fans– I hope NBC is watching and considers it for Days.

Me too. I love DOOL and would be so happy to take a trip down memory lane in celebration of the big 5-0! Hopefully they have some special things planned.

Seems a lot to pack into a half hour. Should do an expanded version for the cabler POP where B&B rebroadcasts.

I used to love B&B. Cannot say the recycled stories, endless triangles/quadrangles, and near-incestuous connections so prevalent now are as exciting. Seems characters never grow or change, only repeat the same behaviors.

I like the show, but don’t like how they devote the whole show to one storyline. And same storyline day after day. And all the shots of L.A. are too much. I want to see the actors and story. I like a couple sightsee shots, but they have put way too many in lately. It’s not a travel program!

Congratulations to The Bold and The Beautiful on reaching this milestone! The documentary sounds nice, especially for persons like me who have never watched the show. It is an opportunity to learn what this show is all about. I do know that Joe Mascolo and Lauren Koslow have both been a part of this show. It would be interesting to see them in clips or to learn what their characters were all about. Both actors are now main characters on Days – which is what I watch. They may not have time in the documentary for what I want to see but nevertheless I like the concept very much.

By the way, I am very familiar with Susan Flannery because she once played Laura Horton on Days. I also know she was a big part of B&B for years, but is no longer there. Happy for Susan’s success on the show. Didn’t she win an Emmy while there? Anyway I wonder if working with the late Francis Reed had any impact on her work at B&B. I am sure Susan will be in the documentary – front and center.

Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales.
