CBS Soaps In Depth - - We Speak Out! -

As a gen­eral rule, we’re not big on catfights. It’s de­mean­ing to both women in­volved and of­ten a lot less fun than would be a well- writ­ten ver­bal smack­down. But prov­ing there’s an ex­cep­tion to ever y r ule, THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’S show­down be­tween Quinn and Sheila was fan­tas­ti­cally en­ter­tain­ing. From Quinn’s taunts (“I called you a bitch, bitch!”) to Sheila’s sub­tle fa­cial ex­pres­sions, the build-up was ex­quis­ite. And once the fur(ni­ture) be­gan to fly,

we were amazed at the level of de­struc­tion. How much fun must it be to ba­si­cally trash an en­tire set? Mean­while, the fact that Eric seems to be play­ing right into Sheila’s

hands is be­yond frus­trat­ing and, frankly, gives us a strong urge to throw a heavy ob­ject at his head, if only in an at­tempt to knock some sense into the Forrester pa­tri­arch!

… or is it flat- out hi­lar­i­ous that B&B’S James has some­how man­aged to earn a liv­ing as a prac­tic­ing psy­chi­a­trist? One need only take a glimpse at his face — per­pet­u­ally set in a gri­mace of pained con­ster­na­tion — to know this guy has more is­sues than a com­pul­sive hoarder of Reader’s Di­gests! Hear­ing James and Sheila dis­cuss their daugh­ter, Mary, got us won­der­ing if per­haps she might pop up in the fu­ture. Loath as the men on this show are to date women who haven’t shared a pre­vi­ous ro­man­tic con­nec­tion with a mem­ber of their fam­ily, per­haps they’d make an ex­cep­tion in her case!
