On Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, the series broke the fourth wall, sort of speak, with an entertaining, oh-so-cute, emotional, and heartfelt 30 minute tribute to what makes this soap different from all others!

For any fan of the series, and for those who work behind the scenes and in front of the camera, the producers at B&B certainly delivered a love letter complete with: original screen tests of Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and Darin Brooks (Wyatt) to name a few, taking the viewer on a typical work day from the actors point of view from start to finish, how the show created some of those memorable special effects and much more.

The episode was also sprinkled-full of footage from  location shoots, memorable moments and stars from the past and present.  In addition, it also gave viewers a glimpse on what unfolded during the touching CBS  Stage 31 dedication to the series executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell.  In the final minutes of the special retrospective, B&B had members of the cast address the camera, and thank the fans of the series for being a part of the CBS Daytime drama making it to this remarkable number.  The show came to a conclusion with a wonderful graphic display in fireworks marking the historic  milestone!

Watch the final moments after the jump! Then, let us know if you enjoyed the 7,000th episode celebration of The Bold and the Beautiful!

Meh.

Needed more cowbell — and a liberal dose of Sheila Carter.

I think they could’ve talked about some of the best villains in the show’s history.

As a former and once avid B&B viewer dating from the program’s inception, I watched this episode for the sake of nostalgia, not to mention, curiosity. All I can say is my how the mighty have fallen….the drop-dead gorgeous cast and stunningly elegant fashions as witnessed from those heady flashbacks to the show’s earliest scenes have now been replaced by today’s impossibly low standards of both looks and style. “Bold and Beautiful? More like Bland and So-So!” (Sean Kanan excepted, although he will ALWAYS be AJ Quartermaine to this loyal GH-er!) P.S. Worst of all, this soap is still stuck… Read more »

In contrast to the ABC’s recent disregard of the fans, CBS and B&B made the celebration extra special. It focused on the soap’s amazing following around the world and ended with a personal thanks to the fans by each of the pricipal cast. What a great tribute!!

Since one can only do so much with less than 30 minutes, because commercials take a chunk of time– I thought it was enough for the time allowed. Perhaps they could have those clips that could make the episode shown on their web page to round out the celebration. And although I am grateful they thanked viewers, I thought that part went on too long– you didn’t need half the cast thanking us– after the fourth person it felt less sincere and more for show– I didn’t like that.

I thought it was shameful that they did not mention Taylor or Hunter Tyio who was on the show for almost 25 years and was part of perhaps the most memorable love triangle on soaps. The fact that she wasn’t part of the original cast evidently played against her inclusion even though she built a HUGE fan following and was partly responsible for building the ratings of B&B up to the number 2 slot in the 90s when there were a lot more soaps on the air. .

Was not overly impressed How many times did we have hear the actors say 7000 episodes Isn’t B&B the youngest soap? So not really that impressive to reach 7000 They could have had it expanded it an hour and had more history for those viewers who have may started B&B in recent years.

I enjoyed the tribute. As a new fan of the show I would have enjoyed seeing more classic footage. Congrats to B&B on this milestone!
