May 24, 2004
Do the writers think that every viewer has been afflicted with amnesia? If they're going to give Deacon a story, they should at least make it somewhat realistic.
May 31, 2004
After months of Nick being crafted as a sincere man with integrity and a few expected human flaws that we all have at some time or another, the writers are flushing it all down the toilet.
June 7, 2004
This past week, Ridge interrupted Brooke and Nick's wedding with a whirlwind of accusations, criminal intrigue, and a disgusting display of misguided white knighthood.
June 14, 2004
No matter where you fall, we all are fans, and we all watch, even when it's painful.
June 21, 2004
Deacon will likely get booted from his daughter's life now that Ridge is with Brooke. That's a shame, because it seemed like he was really ready to be a father to Hope.
June 28, 2004
Brooke and Ridge are a boring, been-there-done-that couple. They are older now, and Ridge isn't going to make any viewers hot enough to exclusively tune in just to watch him.
July 5, 2004
Due to the Fourth of July holiday, there was not a new column this week. Instead, please enjoy a look back at what was happening in Los Angeles during the week of May 24, 2004.
July 12, 2004
It's good that Brooke is no longer fazed by Stephanie, since their feud was getting tedious, but their confrontation last week was a little over the top.
July 19, 2004
It wouldn't be a Forrester wedding (or whatever they called it) without some quality Springer-like drama to spice things up.
July 26, 2004
Maybe Amber will take a page out of Brooke's book and accidentally run into Rick in the company steam room!
August 2, 2004
Thorne and Darla are fast becoming a centerpiece couple. What a breath of fresh air to be allowed to see another couple grab some precious screen time.
August 9, 2004
Just when you thought it was safe to come into the boardroom at Forrester...we have WAR! Thorne has, rightly so, issued a presidential ultimatum to his parents.
August 16, 2004
Thorne Forrester has left the building! But at least he left it with his dignity and pride intact, and he's already found a new home.
August 23, 2004
If Amber thought that the Forresters were done with her before, she's screwed now. A torch-bearing Ridge will come looking for her sooner or later.
August 30, 2004
Thorne has a whole new look in his eyes. He is determined to ruin the Forrester House of Teddies, and he looks confident and focused now that he has real support for a change.
September 6, 2004
Stephanie has been blinded by the god-like glow that surrounds Ridge for too long, and she needs to pay attention to the others she brought into the world.
September 13, 2004
Our beleaguered heroine Brooke has taken a back burner role that offers no excitement, no intrigue, and -- let's be honest here -- no hot romance.
September 20, 2004
Amber has made deflowering the young horndog, Thomas, her mission in life, and she's destined to become the bain of Ridge's existence in the process.
September 27, 2004
Fresh from a celebratory office boink, Massimo overheard Deacon's confession of love to Jackie last week. The newest chain of Jackie M. boutiques may not be opening on time after all!
October 4, 2004
Ridge has been bested by his little brother, and it looks like he will suffer for his egomania. True, Thorne played dirty, but that's the business, right?
October 11, 2004
Ridge is about to experience the biggest annoyance of his life...Amber. She's not going away, and now Thomas is standing up to his father as well.
October 18, 2004
With the advent of the Nineties came grunge, the Clintons, and the Joan of Arc of daytime TV that stole Ridge's heart...Taylor Hayes.
October 25, 2004
The writers should not frighten us with the nightmarish vision of another Amber pregnancy. And if she isn't pregnant, then why have that be part of the storyline at all?
November 1, 2004
It's frightening to think that the viewers are considered so lost and gullible that we will accept a Brooke clone with our favorite sea captain.
November 8, 2004
Nick is about to find out about Mommy and Deacon...gee, that by itself should be worth the price of admission!
November 15, 2004
Imagine how Nick feels, finding out that his mother is bedding a guy his age? Nick seems fairly progressive in nature, but that's asking too much.
November 22, 2004
Some men just get hotter with age, and Jack Wagner could be the poster child for aging gracefully. Are there some well-worn lines here and there? Yes, but that adds to the rugged fašade.
November 29, 2004
When Ridge finds out about Sally's little Moonlight Madness sale, viewers are going to be treated to a week's worth of chest-thumping and more threats about using votes to take over.
December 6, 2004
It looks like Brooke's spine might return, and her Stepford daze might lift, allowing her to think for herself and vote against her precious Ridge.
December 13, 2004
This week, our columnist offers a special holiday song inspired by The Bold and the Beautiful.
December 20, 2004
Part one of a two-part look back at the events of the past year in Los Angeles. This week, our columnist recalls the worst that The Bold and the Beautiful had to offer in 2004.
