The Bold & The Beautiful: ONE GOOD THING
Lest anyone think I let B&B fall off my radar entirely in my recent uptick in posts, I'm here to check in about it. I've been watching but it's virtually impossible to say anything about it because it's completely dominated by this idiotic hand-wringing about how everyone has to protect Steffy from Quinn, and naturally the best way to do that is for her to be married to Liam instead of Wyatt WHICH DOESN'T MAKE THE LEAST BIT OF SENSE. (The problem, apparently, is Quinn's relationship with Eric, and Steffy's marital status or selection has literally zero bearing on that, but someone on the show pointing that out would be too much like sense.)
Thankfully, today Eric had a bit of a brain and pointed out the obvious: that everyone's full of shit and Steffy's just looking for a reason to get back together with Liam. Liam is obviously doing the same, as he sits there talking about how Steffy's "safety" is the first priority with his most essential douchenozzle facial expression. Jackass.
We've also been doing the Brooke/Bill dance again recently, complete with the requisite flashbacks to their cheesy hot air balloon outing where they just stared awkwardly at each other a lot. This is not quite as tedious as the Steffy nonsense, but it's not exactly a breath of fresh air. I did perk up a bit when Brooke basically decided she might accept Bill's marriage proposal just so she can give his Forrester Creations shares to Ridge. That's about as Brooke as it gets -- I mean what's one more marriage to end? We do seem to be re-boarding the Brooke/Ridge train as well, and signs that point to that include the fact that apparently R.J. still exists, has been SORAS-ed, and will be joining the show soon!
But let's talk about one actual truly lovely thing that is going on!
Y'all, I am all in for Sasha and Thomas. They are adorable, they actually smile around each other, and the actors have oodles of chemistry. For once, two characters on B&B in the early stages of romance appear to like each other, and come off as actual young single people with PERSONALITIES!
I don't know what we did to deserve a fun, fresh story here, but I'm glad we did it. (I think I know, though. I think it's our salary for sitting through the same Steffy/Liam/Hope/Wyatt/Ivy crapfest for the last few years. In which case, we've got a massive windfall still due to us.)
COME ON! Human-seeming characters on B&B! Being adorable!
