As always, I'm loving ONE LIFE TO LIVE. The Mendorra stuff is probably my least favorite, because I just find faux royals so tedious, but it's still very entertaining. Thom Christopher is also so a great commanding presence. He could read the phone book, as they say, and I would still sit and listen. I'm also wanting to slap Todd for being so selfish, mean, cruel, etc. I don't like him. And I will rant, rant and rant some more if there is any attempt to put him back with Blair. Enough already. Too much baggage there. How could either one of them get past the cruel things they have done to each other? Put her with John. Stir things up. Put her with Bo? (No wait, Bo really needs someone sweet and kind and nice after that Lindsay debacle. Let me ponder this.)
Yesterday's scenes between Bo and Rex were so great to watch. Bo was hurting, and Robert S. Woods showed his stuff. I always enjoy scenes between him and John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex). So you can just imagine how I am looking forward to Rex and Bo's trip to 1968. (Have I said too much? No, you all know that's coming up.)
In other news, MAD MEN — MAD MEN! — is coming back. There's a July 20 marathon (I write about it in the July 22 issue of Soap Opera Weekly) that I implore, beg you all to watch. Give it a try. Even if you weren't alive in 1960 (or cognizant of being alive) watch this show. This is great television.
Have a great rest of the week!
