I know that B&B's Ridge is meant to be a playboy, but I'd love to see him take some time away from Brooke, Taylor, or any woman for that matter.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL does pretty well when it comes to airing multi-generational stories, but one important generation it's missing are the teens and college kids.

Good for Hope for seeing through Thomas's lie about having slept with Brooke on the island.

I know that Thomas and Brooke's "berry trip" on B&B hasn't been everyone's cup of tea at this magazine (hi, Devin), but I enjoyed it.

It's no secret that I haven't really liked the way that Taylor's been drawn back into Ridge's orbit; I felt that more could be done than having her constantly complain to Ridge about Brooke "corrupting" their adult son, Thomas.

As an only child myself, I'm really enjoying the relationships between B&B's siblings. Brooke, Katie and Donna are more than just sisters; they're best friends. They may argue from time to time, but they truly love each other.

It's no secret that I'm a bit of an "apologist" when it comes to B&B's Brooke and Amber. In Brooke's case, I feel like she's been unfairly painted as the villain in the drama surrounding Thomas and their kiss. As for Amber, portrayer Adrienne Frantz makes her scheming character so sympathetic that I often ended up feeling badly for her — even when Amber had done something wrong. That said, today's episode left me and my colleague, Mala Bhattacharjee, outraged and made me want to shake both characters.

I have mixed feelings about Stephanie and Brooke's brief friendship coming to an end on B&B. On the one hand, Susan Flannery and Katherine Kelly Lang play well off of each other when their characters are sparring, but I also liked seeing them mature and get past their differences.

For the most part, I like B&B's younger set, Hope, Steffy, Thomas, Liam, Oliver and Amber. But while their various love triangles and paternity problems (thanks, Amber) are fun to watch, I'd love to see some storylines where they're just well, kids.

I realize that Taylor's view of her rival Brooke is very skewed on B&B, so I can understand her being upset at the idea of her son, Thomas, kissing his stepmother.
