Making a new ruling on tweets, since they are prevalent in this thread:

 

In the future, please link to individual tweets or a Twitter feed instead of copying and pasting them into a post. Not everyone wants to read them; those who do can follow your links. And technically, they are copyrighted material just like a blog post or an article, so they shouldn't be copied and pasted anyway.

 

In addition, please don't just post tweets -- add some commentary or thoughts of your own. A post full of tweets is just like a list post -- boring to read. We want to know YOUR thoughts. This is especially important in single-thread shows like this one.

 

PM me if you have questions or comments.

I don't mean to be nitpicky here, but if one of your parents is an American citizen, doesn't that also entitle the child to having American citizenship too? In the least, you'd have dual citizenship, right? If that's true, wouldn't the whole "Cane deportation" s/l be a complete hoax? These MWT are just plain awful.

Yeah, that's not a nitpick, that's a gaping plot hole the size of Texas. It continues to amaze me at how utterly the TIIC have bungled the Jill/Kay retcon and practically every aspect that stems from this, from Cane to P-turd to Tucker. This is the gift that keeps on giving, folks.

Well, today was the most fast forwarded show I've ever done. Between the obnoxious lip smacking by Plylick, the stupid scenes with Summer and most of the rest, I watched the show in less than 8 minutes. The only good part was watching Nicki's reaction to the pregnancy.

I am usually laughing at Victor's OTT tirades, but he does speak some truth and I think it stings Billy. I mean sure Chelsea was paid to seduce Billy, but if Billy would have stayed his ass at home and dealt with his family -- well, yeah. The mustache has a point.

Sharon just looks like a truly pathetic person in today's ep. TAVN was nice to her, so she has to stick her tongue down his throat just because Phyllis was a bitch and Adam "sort've" moved on?

While watching Phyllis act like a horse's ass, I thought back to Adam throwing the bloody clothes and sheets into the fire. I'm hoping this happens again, only this time Adam will throw Phyllis into the fire.

The Victoria-Chelsea-Victor gathering at the table was uncomfortable to say the least.

While I had no problem with Kyle hating Jack for dating Nikki, I'm starting to tire of him already. I hope he gets bitten in the ass sooner rather than later for aligning with Victor.

While I had no problem with Kyle hating Jack for dating Nikki, I'm starting to tire of him already. I hope he gets bitten in the ass sooner rather than later for aligning with Victor.

I'm holding out hope that Kyle is setting things up to pull a double-cross on Victor. What better way to do that than from completely inside Victor's life, both the ranch and the company. Maybe he can pull off what Adam couldn't. It remains to be seen who will have to rescue him when he realizes his in over his head: daddy Jack, uncle Billy, or doppelganger Adam?

I am glad Victor called her out. That is why he offered her that money. I think he knows she is going to be trouble for Victoria down the road.

Yeah, she might be but it's not Victor's place to solve what is Victoria and Billy's potential problem by throwing barrels of money at it without their knowledge or consent. That's going to come back and bite him in his prune-like ass.

Also WRT Adam and Chelsea their sex scene was weird. Adam was clearly upset that Sharon dismissed him again. Chelsea was all hot and bothered cause Victor put her in her place. The way she got all in his face and was like "just take it?" screamed of a bad porno into. And I didn't see this 'sizzling' chemistry I keep hearing. Eh.

That scene was the definition of "hate sex" except Adam and Chelsea's hate was directed toward others instead of each other. Meh, it was little more than mutual masturbation, IMO. I'm not seeing any sizzling romantic chemistry--yet--but they'll definitely make good partners-in-crime (er, naughty deeds, since they're both trying to reform and all).

Sharon just looks like a truly pathetic person in today's ep.

She sure did. I can see her being upset about the way Phyllis went at her but she brought that Adam crap on herself. Then there she was trying to tap dance backward away from him. Please, she'd probably still be in Adam's bed if she hadn't shown up when Chelsea was there. And now she tries to make herself feel better by licking Victor's uvula? "Oh, gosh, my former father-in-law and grandfather of my children. You've always patronized me so much more nicely than every other man in this town. Here, let me repay you with my cooter. Everybody says it's golden, you know. Maybe you could help me upgrade it to platinum."

Sharon was also really stupid to be asking Phyllis personal questions. Sharon was pretty vulnerable at that moment so what does she do but boldly approach the snake that Phyllis can be to prod her about her pregnancy.

I think the producers are ready to ditch SC otherwise why destroy her TV character so badly? Can't wait to hear Noah burst into the room and say, "Mommy Mommy I hear you're fucking Grampa!"

But then those stupid mwt are high fiving that they're crossing lines that must not be crossed.

Yes, it does. I brought this up some times ago. He could have applied for citizenship "by descent", but perhaps back then he didn't because he was still saying he had no family? I'm trying to find a rational excuse for stupid retconning. ;-)

I thought Victor had paid her to seduce Billy in the first place, right? Or he was responsible for Billy disappearing off the face of the Earth where he met Chelsea to begin with.

Either way, this smacks of the Patty Williams BS all over again--Victor creating a situation, then others suffering for it. And him playing hero to get rid of Chelsea doesn't erase that.

He did. That's why Chelsea was ranting to Adam before she jumped his bones. Victor paid her to seduce and take pictures of Billy. The sex, baby, and jail were not part of the deal -- just added bonuses that Victor used to serve his purpose. But it backfired.

I give the old fool no credit, but I get him not wanting Chelsea to be a thorn in Victoria's side. Chelsea can't constantly do what she did today and think it is ok. No adoptive mother would be alright with the birth mother randomly popping up for a social call. Besides I think Victor decided paying her off was needed since Chelsea came across that she didn't care that Victoria was clearly uncomfortable. I would have had the same conversation IRL if I were in Victor's place. There needs to be boundaries.

I guess MM's mini vacation will involve that $10 million? Another hedge fund? This could be fun.

IA she did look very weak and needy. Maybe she's going thru a mid life crisis. Or maybe that smack down she got from Phyllis really shook her up. When Phyllis told Sharon that everyone was pretty much over worrying about everything she did or how she would react that seemed to throw Sharon. Ironic since she's the one that started the snark with Phyllis and then couldn't handle the blow back. I'll be interested to see how Victor reacts to her hitting on him. I'm actually looking forward to the show these days. Yikes.

I'm not feeling Chadam. Chadam sex is not sexy. YMMV. However, loved the last few minutes when Chelsea said "What would you do with 10 million dollars" and Adam said "Turn it into 100 million." Good answer!

As much as I know I should be hating Victor, I just can't. First of all, EB is a good actor and he really makes Victor believable. Is he 100% on 100% of the time? No but nobody is. He's on 95% of the time tho imo and that's enough to make Victor a great character. The other thing that works for me about Victor is that the writers give him actual motivations for most of the stuff he does and it's consistent for the most part. The character goes off the rails on occasion but not as much as other characters and for that I blame the writers. Today Victor had a scene with "Billy Boy" where he basically lays out his reasons for disliking Billy, -drunk, irresponsible with Dehlia, leaving Victoria etc. and he actually made a pretty good case, or at least a case that would make sense to Victor. Most of the other characters, Adam in particular, rarely get a chance to explain themselves and it makes them less understandable and less likeable. Billy is another character that has never really explained his actions in leaving after the Lucy debacle so we can't really understand his thought process. Ditto with Ronan. I still don't know why he was so pissed at Nina, why he couldn't communicate with Chloe or why he took up with Phyllis. I enjoy getting to know a character and hopefully the writers will continue what they have started lately with the more in depth interactions between characters.

AH's hair looked super fab on the show today. She really has beautiful hair.

It's funny how Kyle turns from 11 to 31 in 4 months, and now sports a receding hairline, similar to Michael Muhney's.

The receding hairline, that the actor and/or hairdresser tries to hide with his hair flipped up and back, makes the actor look older than he is, but he's still extremely attractive, and sexy as hell in his

I'm not saying that this is what you are referring to, but Peter Bergman's acting choice of squinting his eyes and tapping his fingers together dries me crazy. He does it all the time. He never changes his acting, ever. He does the same thing with all the actors he's in scenes with. I have always thought he was overrated.


I have amazing news. Brace yourself!


Yay! /sarcasm

I can't believe they're going to SORAS Summer to a teenager.


What is so lame is that they showed her one last time as a child when Phyllis found out she was pregnant, and now she's going to turn into a teenager before Phyllis has the baby? lmao

Sharon was also really stupid to be asking Phyllis personal questions


I agree. It was none of Sharon's business; she got exactly what she deserved. I hate Phyllis, always have, always will, but this time Phyllis was in the right.
