The Bold and the Brutal
By Destiny Eve Pifer

I will fully admit that I haven't been one bit enthused by this show. I can
remember the first time I started watching. I had always tuned into Days of our
Lives, The Young and the Restless and General
Hospital but never tuned into The Bold and the Beautiful until one
warm day. While on College Break I was flipping through the channels
when I came across a handsome hunk that grabbed my attention. That
handsome hunk was Sean Kanan who portrayed Deacon Sharpe.
At the time, Deacon was chasing after Amber Moore. Then their was
return of Kristen Forrester who came back to the family business.
Kristen was sent to entice the hunky Antonio a brilliant designer who
joined Spectra. I found myself captivated by the storylines and
watched as Deacon did one dastardly deed after another. When he couldn't have Amber he decided that her new sister-in-law Bridget
would do. I had hope for Bridget and Deacon until the TPTB totally
ruined their love affair by having Deacon and Bridget's mother Brooke
have an affair.
There have been many disgusting storylines such as the son-in-law boink; Bridget falling for Ridge whom she thought at one time was her
brother. Then we had Amber seduce Ridge's way too young son Thomas.
have suffered through people coming back from the dead such as
surviving cancer like Felicia, getting away with murder once again
Taylor, another triangle with Brooke and Bridget this time involving
Bridget's husband Nick. A series of other disasters hit the show but
still many of us fans stuck through it.
Now many of the fans have gotten what they wanted the reuniting
longtime lovers Brooke and Ridge. While other fans are not too
thrilled over the pair. I for one am hoping that TPTB will just leave
them alone and focus on other storylines. However the storylines seem
to be a brutal mess I need of serious fixing. We have the ex- Sea
Captain Nick Marone leaving his sea roots and stealing Forrester
Creations yes a Fashion House. My mouth literally dropped open over
that one. What does a Sea Captain know about Fashion? We have Thorne
turning to the woman who killed his wife. Yes I know it was
Darla's fault but I find that hard to believe. Taylor however doesn't
seem to feel the same way about Thorne. Instead she is fighting an
attraction to Nick. I swear it's going to turn into a session of
musical chairs or should I say beds.
Meanwhile Stephanie Forrester has set out with the goal to bring
Nick and his mother Jackie down. She is determined to win back
Forrester Creations after all it is the company that she and her
husband built. Stephanie isn't holding back or taking any mercy. She
managed to get a hold of some dirt on Jackie and humiliate both
and son. Ridge and Thorne gladly jumped on board.
I have to admit that there are characters that grate my nerves like
Donna Logan. At one time Donna was sweet and nice. She had goals and
if my memory serves me right she was a brunette. She got along with
Brooke and stood by her. This new Donna is obsessed with Ridge and
against Brooke. She has joined forces with Nick and Jackie. Helping
take Forrester Creations away from the Forrester Family. It's a
disgrace and makes me wonder what happened to the real Donna?
Then there is Bridget who I have always stood by even when she
really stupid. I think this character is in need of a serious change.
I need to see her in a juicy and dark storyline. Let her show her
intelligence and actually find a good guy. As for Shane I think he is
going to bring darkness to the show and I find that intriguing. I don't see him as a young version of Deacon but something more
sinister. I see him causing trouble and maybe being a wolf in sheep's
I know many tune in to see Ridge/Brooke and Nick/Taylor/Thorne.
However I long to see a variety of characters and better storylines.
would like to see more of Clarke, Sally, Bridget and Shane. Would
to Storm back on and paired with Felicia or maybe some new woman.
see something new and more exciting.
