When it comes to The Bold and the Beautiful, every fan has their own opinion – and Soap Hub is no different. For five days, we sat and watched the good, the bad, and everything in between, and now we offer you a handy review, and a cheeky critique, of B&B’s week that was.
The Bold and the Beautiful: A Critic’s Week In Review
Boy, that stunt sure was something. Was it perfect? No. I’m still wondering how Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) ramming into the back of Li Finnegan’s (Naomi Matsuda) vehicle caused it to erupt in a fireball. Also, where did that random pier come from? Weren’t they just driving straight on an interstate highway?
But you know what? Kudos and a big thank-you to The Bold and the Beautiful for spending the time and the money. I honestly cannot remember the last time a soap opera aired a special effects-laden spectacular of that magnitude.
If only the whole thing hadn’t come at the expense of Matsuda and the dumbing down of Li.
Further B&B Musings
* All this time has gone, and I still can’t quite get a handle on Paris Buckingham (Diamond White). I’d love if once and for all B&B could decide who she is and what makes her tick.
* If Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) is as concerned for Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) and her safety as he claims, why not just move back home and protect her? Or, baring that, why not insist that she come and stay at the Forrester compound until Sheila is back behind bars?
* Remember when an episode of The Bold and the Beautiful would be chock full of flashbacks to Sheila switching the labels on the champagne bottles and Brooke wondering aloud, “Why did I drink that night?! Why did I so want to drink on New Years?” I miss those days. Now the episodes are featuring audio snippets of scenes that took place minutes earlier. As if we’d forget what was just said.
