^^^ Ha, you must be referring to Brooke and Taylor’s epic cake fight (and subsequent “Walk of Shame”!) at Hope and Liam’s wedding reception, no? I take this is a good sign, Jake, that they’re back to airing more recent seasons of B&B over in Poland? (That episode aired in the U.S. towards the end of August 2018, so hopefully it’s just a matter time till you’re all caught up to what’s currently showing here!)June 25, 2020 at 11:50 pm #1203552464
Why was Flannery so good when Stephanie was beating up Brooke? She killed those scenes!June 26, 2020 at 1:07 pm #1203553431
Did anybody watch the Michael Fairman interview of Scott Clifton, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Heather Tom? They talked about their Emmy wins over the years…June 26, 2020 at 4:45 pm #1203553644
^^^ Great interview by Michael Fairman. Scott discussed his reasons for not submitting his name for Emmy consideration this year, Heather gave her unique perspective as both actor and director in the daytime medium, and Jacquie reminisced about the shooting of those difficult scenes which finally landed her that coveted golden Lead Actress statuette!
I’ve been on Cloud 9 all week with CBS’s salute to B&B’s (and Y&R’s!) Emmy-winning performances. I got chills all over again watching Scott and Heather’s episodes (Monday and Thursday’s shows; unfortunately, most of today’s featuring Jacquie’s Emmy-winning submission was interrupted by the Pence news conference). And those two scripts by Patrick Mulcahey… what an absolute dream!July 21, 2020 at 5:52 am #1203594116
Interesting article in USA Today about how they are producing new episodes now. For close contact/kissing scenes, they are using mannequins and/or the actors’ real-life spouses and then cutting it together so the audience can’t tell. Actors also have to be eight feet apart most of the time on set and they are each given lanyards that indicate which zones of the production studio they can be in at a given time and which they can’t.July 21, 2020 at 8:16 am #1203594280
It sounds really interesting and potentially really clever if it all works. I’m tuning in to B&B now that they’re back to producing new episodes because I’m really eager to see how it goes. Yesterday’s episode featured a few new scenes with Carter, Katie, and Zoey but was mostly a recap of what’s happened up to now. (This seems like a much better way of getting the audience back up to speed that GH’s approach to just air the last few weeks of episodes again.) That was great for me, because while I had seen enough clips from the Hope/Thomas story to more or less know what was happening there, it was helpful getting more of the lowdown on Brooke/Ridge/Shauna and Sally/Wyatt/Flo.July 23, 2020 at 8:33 pm #1203598660
Steffy did have a motorcycle accident before but having Bill run her over is a twist! You can see how the filming restrictions may have affected the staging of it and leaps in the story. But also Flo somehow writing on Sally’s underwear “help me, Flo” was really funny! When did she do it? lol that was greatJuly 27, 2020 at 12:32 am #1203605051
All hats off to B&B on its triumphant return with all new episodes, and delivering! Just one week in, and the show is already roaring on all cylinders! Particularly loved how cleverly the scenes were shot (and edited together!) in which Flo and Wyatt are reunited (the directors all deserve special Emmys just for pulling off the social distancing protocols during filming)!July 30, 2020 at 8:54 am #1203615056
I just watched those scenes with the Wyatt/Flo reunion yesterday, and it was interesting to see how they were done. More than anything I think I was surprised how long that reunion scene was. It felt like a hundred different shots with hands, facial close-ups, torsos, etc. all assembled. It seems like a lot of work! It was slightly jarring to me, but I think that had more to do with the way B&B has been doing more extreme close-ups and quick cuts even before the COVID restrictions, giving it a more international feel, very different from what the other soaps do. It definitely leans into the melodrama of some situations.August 22, 2020 at 12:40 pm #1203660867
Been enjoying the new episodes so far. Can’t wait to watch more of themSeptember 25, 2020 at 1:00 pm #1203734972
Really liking Steffy high on pain killers! Good stuff. Big dramaSeptember 29, 2020 at 9:22 am #1203741510
Curious to know who those of you who watch B&B consider to be the four leads for Best Actor and Best Actress on the show? I would think, certainly: Scott Clifton and Thorsten Kaye, maybe Darin Brooks and Don Diamont for the males, and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Katherine Kelly Lang for the females, with perhaps Heather Tom and who would be the fourth for the females? I have watched so infrequently in 2020…October 1, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203749646
I would have to say Courtney Hope and Katrina Bowden reallyOctober 14, 2020 at 9:29 am #1203778009
Watched an episode and was struck by how many plastic good looking but vapid actors are currently on the show. This used to be a guilty pleasure show for me but I haven’t been thrilled at all lately by it. I do wish they would bring back Felicia to shake the show up!
