Episode 66 features the fantastic Lawrence Saint Victor as Carter Walton, with his expectations at such a high level that one fears for him.

We see Zoe with wandering eye for Zende. By contrast, one-woman Carter has no other women on his mind or in his orbit of relationships.

Haven’t you had, uh, friends, yes, very good friends to whom this has happened? The pedestal for your fiance is not necessarily a good thing.

If there is anything that qualifies as good family karma, it is when your family is a major hospital philanthropist, then a neurosurgeon saves a life in your family.

Such is the case with the Forresters, as the life of Thomas was saved through the physicians and surgeons made available only through donation.

In that light, this episode features Paris Buckingham, the sister of Zoe Buckingham, yet unrelated to the Fleetwood mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham (just seeing if anyone’s reading!) telling the new C.O.O. of Forester, Mr Carter Walton.

Charlie makes a fantastic walk on appearance not only returning a full mannequin but telling us what a “10-22” means in Forrester Creations code. (a raccoon in the losses in the parking lot)

The December 15 episode of the Young and the Restless uses brilliant elements of the films Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, It’s a Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz.

Jason Thompson’s performance as Billy Abbott IV entertains yet makes one think. True excellence won the daytime drama for Best Actor in a Daytime Drama for Mr. Thompson. I would not be the least bit surprised if that award is repeated.

 

The December 11, 2020 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful features the outstanding acting of Rena Sofer as Quinn Forrester.

The American actor Rena has a most entertaining way of delivering her lines and embracing the character that she takes from the writers’ page on to the television, iPad or any device carrying CBS All-Access®!

The Young and the Restless on episode 58 of the 48th season features an unexpectedly common honeymoon, which is refreshing from that of people who are generally known for staying at 5-star hotels only.

season 48, episode 58

The program features outstanding performances in particular from Sasha Calle, Christel Khalil and Tricia Cast. Your outstanding acting is much appreciated!

The 57th episode of the Bold and the Beautiful this season featured the fabulous John McCook weighing the glory of love and empathy of forgiveness against being disappointed by the one a person trusts the most.

Similarly, Liam shows a true person who must weigh forgiveness against the disappointments that truth often brings. The title of the 1990s movie Reality Bites starring Wynona Ryder speaks for itself.

Meanwhile, neurosurgeon and emergency room physician John “Finn” Finnegan shows excellence as he saves a life of Thomas who suffered a life-threatening subdural hematoma.
