    Breaking Bad Season 4

    That was so funny and I loved the names she came up with. And yes I think it was a kind of escapism, be someone else for a while as things were unbearable at home. I watched one YoutTube video that called Marie "Walter Lite' and made some interesting comparisons between the two, obviously with...

    Tea/coffee: With sugar or without?

    I probably only drink about 2 cups of coffee per week. I can't have sugar so I have one spoon of xylitol which is a healthy sweetener (I think it's made from a tree bark). It's great for anyone who wants a healthy alternative. It looks just like sugar and you use the same amount. I very...

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    Definitely. Not necessarily if they had gone a different route. A darker game of cat and mouse with Melissa learning to (almost) beat Angela at her own game.

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    Yes, season 5 has a lot to answer for. It irreparably screwed up a lot of stuff, and Melissa's character was one of the main casualties. But I still think she could have been rescued with the right writers, in fact pretty much any character can achieve longevity in the hands of good writers. As...

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    CONTINUED: Melissa was eliminated in order to allow Filerman and Marchetta room to introduce Pilar Ortega and her family onto the series. This included introducing actors Castulo Guerra, Dan Ferro, and Danny Nucci into the cast as Pilar's father and brothers. During that season, the Ortega...

    'The Single-Handed Destruction of "Falcon Crest" by Kristian Alfonso's Pilar Ortega'

    Just came across this blog with an interesting essay on season 8 of Falcon Crest, specifically Melissa's exit and Pilar's introduction. His on views on Melissa's exit and how it was handled seem to echo how most fans feel about it...

    SoapLand - The Battle Of The Latecomers

    This is a very difficult round for me as I have not seen the final seasons of all the soaps, or I saw them when they first aired back in the 80's. But based on what I have seen and can remember: 1. John Zorelli 2. Michelle Stevens 3. Genele Erickson 4. Michael Sharpe 5. Pilar Ortega

    Breaking Bad Season 4

    Even if Saul wasn't your favourite character they create some wonderful new characters to get invested in, and also as it goes on more important characters from BB show up. Slight spoiler, but if it encourages you to watch maybe it's worth it, Gus joins the show from season 3 onwards, so it...

    What was the last documentary you watched?

    Biography of John Casablancas, founder of Elite Modelling agency and 'inventor of the supermodel'. I really enjoyed it.

    Welcome to your new forums.

    I'm really liking it. Very aesthetically pleasing and also not too drastic a change. Well done to those who have been working behind the scenes to make this happen.

    Breaking Bad Season 4

    No, it was addressed, for a while anyway. I remember one scene in particular were Walt is asked to address the whole school to talk about the affect the disaster has had on all of them and the community, but starts rambling and trying to some how make sense/justify it, as he has become an expert...

    Breaking Bad Season 4

    What did you think of Jane's final episode and death scene? The moment when she died was one moment in the series where I really gasped, perhaps the pivotal moment where Walt truly breaks bad. It was so shocking and unexpected. He's a wonderful character. Many Breaking Bad fans didn't watch...

    I wonder if Tellyaddicts will also inform us rather rudely that we have misspelled these words. :D
