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.

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.

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

‘Irresistible (Go)’

The most difficult task of writing for a daytime drama seem as though they are twofold:

  1. 90% of the characters are protagonist good people for whom the viewer roots;
  2. No foul language allowed.

Take this episode, for example. Every character is a truly good person. That’s tough to write for, but in 2020, who needs another antagonistic ‘heavy’? Who would not want to be a member of the Spencer, Forrester or Logan families, where each character, Quinn included, is supportive of others?
