Zach's Achy-Breaky Heart

  • Kendall gets her infidelity off her chest, and lobs it onto Zach's shrinking heart.
  • Angie damn near opens up a can of whoop-ass on both Frankie and Jessie.
  • Things are getting back to normal with Blandie and Ryan - Blandie is blander than ever, and Ryan is wussier than ever.
  • Adam tells Krystal he loves her, then leaves her.
They got our girl. Depending on who's telling it, Ambyr Childers, who plays our beloved Colby Chandler, is either leaving to pursue other projects, or being recast because she's too damn young for Frankie. I say thank your lucky stars, Ambyr! On to bigger and better things for you, young lady! What do you think about the whole thing? Do your thang, here.

I Cannot download the podcast from itunes it gives an error message, so I deleted the podcast and re-subscribed and I cannot download any episodes of the PVPC, the error report says your website not working, nope this information helps to get it fixed fast because I love this podcast and cannot wait to here how AMAZING you thought Zack was this week.

Ashley,

regarding to what you said about Ritchie, can you explain why he threw locked Zach and Greenlee in the bomb shelter, what was his motive behind that.

also, do you think Annie would be more interesting if she was secretly a psycho like Ritchie and somehow toys with Kendall and Greenlee and ends up with all three men and fusion. i think she should team up with Ritchie or Amanda and take them down!!!

Yeah I read th statement On Ambyer's blog and ...... well I think AMC gave her a bonus if she took the rap for her departure because they know The fans me as one are not amused with this decision. I know but her blog sounds too stepford wives. If it was a bettre and bigger project for her acting carrer then why not say " Hey I'm joining One Tree Hill or taking over the role of Maxie On GH or something."
All I can say is the new girl has some very big shoes to fill and unless she can really act and win me over asap. I'm done with Colby.
This blows big.

I just discovered the PV podcast in the last couple of months and now I wouldn't miss it. I've been watching AMC since Erica Kane was in high school trying to steal Chuck Tyler from Tara Martin.

Over the last few years, the show had become so boring that I was losing interest. I agree with you that it's getting better, but even when it's not, now I watch so I'll understand what Ashley and Jordan (missing you this week Soapcyclopedia Hudson!)are talking about.

By the way, Ashley, I also thought Zack threw the family photo, but when I rewound, I discovered that he had closed the photo and put it down just before he threw the drinking glass in his other hand.

Thanks for making AMC fun again!!

WooHoo Pedro, so good to have you back!! Yes Pedro, you DO have fans who enjoy your dry wit and “asstoot” observations. Ashley, you have the best guest/co hosts. Jordan, Pedro and Where in the world is Taylor Crawfish!

Ashley, you said Greenlee and Aiden on a pool table grossed you out. Well that’s because it WAS gross! When Aiden put his head under the covers I started to freak thinking he was going downtown with that “property of aiden sticker.” Rebecca’s little giggle saved that scene. She sounded genuinely ticklish. Rebecca Budig is so good, she just glows, even when she’s doing love scenes with A-dumb. Prenup? Did she laugh in his face? He won’t need one, they’ll never make it to the altar.

Thorsten Kaye as Zach? I don’t know anything about him as a person, but damn, he’s terrific as Zach. I don’t care if he’s a PITA in real life. IMHO Zach is one of the most layered, complex, interesting people in PV.

Oooh, I remember AMC back in the high school days, but I thought Erica was trying to steal Phil from Tara. Wasn't Chuck the one who was always a day late and a dollar short? Wonder if Soapcyclopedia Jordan remembers?

jordan hudson said...

LOL. Yes Erica was after Phil Brent. Who was in love with Tara Martin. Chuck was in love with Tara. Erica then married Jeff Martin Tara's older brother, who is Josh's Father. Oh the good all days sigh. Thou I do think not 100% sure I was very young at the time but I think Erica might have gone out on a date with chuck to try and make phil jealous or something like that. Oh aggie Nixon we miss your layered writing so much.

So Aidan gives Greenlee an engagement ring, and the cameras get a closeup of it. I couldn't help but think that it was about 2 carats of sparkling cubic zirc. How in the world could Aidan afford the real thing? Does our little spotted dick really make that much money as a private dick?

=^..^=

georgia girl said...

Ah, yes, AZ gal, you're right, as Jordan confirmed. I definitely don't have his encyclopedic memory.

Anonymous said...

Ashley, I'd love it if you did a whole podcast from the point of view of Kendall or Blahndie simply because your impersonations of them are hysterically funny. And Taylor could be Josh... ROTFL.

So here's my question. Is Kendall becoming more clueless as the years go by? When she first came to PV she was smart and conniving and ruthless. Now, after years of being a pro at lying and deceit, she is so dense she sounds like she donated her brain to science before she was done with it. She didn't learn anything from her visit with Ma. And how stupid was it to have sex with Aiden in the first place?! I don't get finding solace in a quickie with that guy.

Ashley,
I guess it just must be you and be in the minority in our feelings about Rob Gardner. I can't even look at his face he's so creepy looking. I know that sounds harsh, but I just can't stand to watch him.

Love the podcast!

A comment and a beef for Ashley, Jordan, Taylor, Pedro:

Wow, Erica really takes prison garb to a new high. The turned up collar, the bright colors, no dull prison garb for her. Still with the mascara, lipstick and poofy hair. I always thought it was Ms. Lucci never wanting to look dowdy, but I’m beginning to realize, this really is Erica. This is a woman who would not let a dingy prison cramp her style. It really is part of Erica’s character. Love it!

Okay, this is my beef. I’m probably in the minority here but this has bugged me for the last year. Does it seem like Tad just moved on so quickly after murdering GM? He never suffers any pangs of guilt, no PTSD, nothing. He says one 15 second prayer to Father Clarence and he’s forgiven? And now, if the spoilers and rumors are correct, he’s about to find out about Kate. I just don’t feel like he deserves anything good in his life until he pays for his crimes. There are a lot of other felons in PV, but how many took a man’s life, and in such a cruel fashion? TPTB just ruined the character of Tad for me. He was once my favorite, but now he’s just a bloated smart-ass who can still be quite charming, but also quite cruel and judgmental. I know the viewers are just supposed to forget about GM’s murder, but I just can’t. TPTB blew it here, they could have continued this with an arc about Josh seeking justice for his dad. He’s knows Tad did it, right? Just my 2 cents.

well the podcast is not downloading for me either. i'll check again later.

as for Ambyr, i think she was fired and she's just showing class by leaving without making too much noise.

BTW, Ashley have you seen the Dix returns promo yet? if you haven't, here's the link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAH92sB1ZaM

Cady as always, looks fabulous. but apparently you get blonder, longer hair in "heaven" LOL or is it really in a coma? your hair tends to grow while your in a coma hmmm... ;-)oh and thank goodness she's not in the push up bra nightmare and not in white (angel wear) either.
however, i'm so p---ed at the dialogue. Dix saying not bad for being dead and it's too late for her. not to mention the BS their trying to sell by saying her appearing as a ghost and reuniting Kate-thy/Tad is a happy ending. *&^*#@! then there's a part where they make it seem like she's talking to Tad. *rolling eyes*

****Spoiler ALERT*** not going to say who's she's really talking to, but will say it's not Tad. also from scoops the person she is talking to is the only one who will see/talk to her so i'd like to know WTF kind of reunion is that?

OTOH, at least since it's only 1 who sees her...it could still be spun into them just imagining things etc. therefore, keep the pressure on those head idiots. if you want Dix ALIVE...keep WRITING, EMAILING, and CALLING! Stress that you want her ALIVE...make it clear to those dummies.

addresses, emails, etc:

oh here's a bit of motivation, Craputhers putting her foot in her mouth yet again...joking about the pancake crap. she has some ***** STOP GIVING THE INTERVIEWS, MORON!

from SOD:
"We thought it important to kind of make good on the poisoned pancakes," laughs EP JHC by way of explaining why the show is bringing back Cady McClain's beloved alter ego. (hahaha yeah it's so funny...trick! i hope you laugh your way out of a job, real soon.)

Jordan, you are such a wealth of knowledge about all things soap opera. Just curious, is your brain also a repository for other kinds of information?

Ashley said...

The podcast loaded fine for me on iTunes. You can also go the the blog page and right click on the link if that doesn't work.

You know, Blue Skies, I do agree that we could have had an AMAZING story arc for both Josh and Tad had the writers made Tad pay for what he did. But I don't hate the character for it -- it's the writers who fouled up here. (I'd use the other word if I wasn't such a lady.) It was the DUMBEST of DUMBASS McTrash moves to begin with, but you're right. It should have been dealt with in SOME fashion. It's actually CREEPY that it hasn't (other than Father McClarence-O.)

I have only been listening to the podcast for a few months, but now I am hooked. AMC has been my guilty pleasure for at least 25 years. Keep up the good work. I love you guys!

well, finally i got it to DL. although it was in parts and thanks to Media Manager i was able to do that. anyways as always great show, guys! nice to hear from you Pedro, Ashley too, of course. hope to hear from Taylor soon...he's very much missed.

also my bad, you have seen the Dix promo, Ashley. oh well, for others who want to see the visuals i left the link in the above post (specifically after Blue Skies' post. who BTW, ICAM w/ your post. i hate how they didn't follow through completely w/ the Tad/Madden crap...there's so much more that could be done, especially where Josh knowing comes in and what should be Tad's inner demons. but the hacks are not called hacks for no reason. this is just one of them).

BTW, here's a scoop from the new SOD. which should make you put on your thinking caps.

*May sweeps will end, but not every character will survive.*

*uh-oh* who and how many? well i do have my specs due to a certain pending s/l coming to some sort of resolution and rumors. it just better not be Opal...no more vets. for the first time that hack better not be lying through her teeth.

Boy that Angie is one bossy lady. "Jesse, you're going to have to go thru ME when they dig up your grave." Watching Angie lately reinforces to me how great Debi Morgan is. That character has matured into such a strong woman.

Darnell Williams is also great as ever. Jesse has turned into a real man, and one who has so much respect for Angie that sometimes he seems slightly 'whipped, saying something about *letting* him go to the exhumation.

Good stuff happening these days.

WMD said...

Well, now AMC has not only a character that is a walking, talking aborted fetus, but also a 25-year-old born in 1999 who was talking about college admissions two weeks ago. Congratulations, JHC, you are a retard.

Don't have much to say because it was a boring week (and I have college finals!), but I do want to post this...on my set, there was a funny editing error late in the week. Kendall and Greenlee start walking towards the elevator at Fusion, and the next scene they cut to (instantaneously) is the two of them, now downstairs! AMC has invented teleporters, where can I buy one?! Anybody else see this?

Anonymous said...

I thought Ryan's shrink was good but then she should have been because she was played by Dr Gail Saltz who is a real psychiatrist and contributor to the Today Show, MSNBC and Oprah's O magazine.

Ashley, yes TPTB did drop the ball when they decided to say fuhgeddaboudit to Tad for Greg's murder. Makes me wonder, what did the PV police conclude about Greg's death? If this case was an open, active investigation, shouldn't Tad still be sweating it? Why isn't Josh demanding justice? It wasn't that long ago! Certainly they could not say it was natural causes. Doesn't Derek and his crew have a cold case unit? Seems to me there a lot of unsolved crimes in PV. Certainly not a very safe place to live.

Please only have Jordan Hudson on the show, I love ur Podcast Ashley and u rock but I tend to HATE every other co-host, Pedro this week sucked the fun and life out of the podcast (sorry) u were trying to make this week which which except for Zack ( who I don's believe anyone could not like) and Kendall more exciting and he brought nothing to the table.
There is only ONE Jordan Hudson and we need to hear form him a lot more , you two are a great duo.

Wow, is this a troll? Just gotta speak up here. Jordan Hudson is scary smart and terrific, but Pedro and Taylor each bring something unique to the table. In fact, Taylor rules and I totally miss him. Pedro is cute and witty. All the guest hosts have great chemistry with Ashley.

All the guest hosts are unique and special in their own way. How come Taylor and Pedro are never on the podcast at the same time? Huh Ashley? How come?

I agree with Susan in Toronto, Jordan is the only one i like. Pedro brings NOTHING to the table, he is boring! Jordan is upbeat and has the best opinions and sees thing I miss. I would love for Ashley and Jordan to have Pedro or Taylor there too as a guest but I love Jordan as much as I love Ashley and I think they are the BEST. they are so much better than those daytime confidential people who cannot tell the difference between Jake and Jeff Martin.

Anonymous said...

Ashley you and your co-hosts are terrific. I look forward to your podcast every week. I so agree with you about Aiden and Greenlee's love scenes. It makes me sick to watch him kiss her. The scene in Fusion where he was kissing her neck was horrific. Tad is phenominal right now! Here's a question for you: On the podcast you all mentioned that Jake was into Greenlee at one time. I can not remember that. Can you guys refresh my memory? When was that?
Thanks and keep up the good work!

Ashley said...

Hello Kitty in Tulsa!

When Greenlee was just starting to get into Leo sometime around -- uh -- 2000?, she lso had a little thing with Jake. In fact, it was kind of a question for a while who she would choose. She even ended up stranded on a beach for a while with Jake, and I thought for sure she would end up with him (the Jake played by J. Eddie Peck). You should YouTube it - there was one fun episode where Greenlee was MaryAnn, Leo was Gilligan, Jake was the Professor, and I forget who played the Skipper.... Fun stuff.

OK, y'all, the Erica storyline turned stupid for me this week...instead of "fun on the run" with Carmen, they went the route of wiping detergent bottles. I was loving it up until now.

First, the inmates look like they want to attack Erica, but then she turns them around with a few promises? Then there's a protest to free Erica from prison with B5 singing that catchy-as-all-get-out song. This went from fun to ludicrous. And I love me some fun, people, remember miss Erica, Skye, and Janet with Dr. Kinder on the plane. What a hoot! And I always appreciate when they let Ms. Lucci do comedy. But can we get this back on track. I was finally getting interested with Erica's story...

crs17

crs17 said...

Love J and A, but a stuffed elephant ?? C'mon! If it weren't for the talent involved in this storyline, I may have already given up.

Another week of spinning wheels waiting for sweeps. I do not understand why TPTB think they need to kill everyone off for dramatic purposes. If who is getting killed off is really getting killed off that is upsetting, because she is a part of the history of the show despite her non-use these past years. Then in another 20 years they will ask me to buy her resurrection...can't people just leave town anymore. After all, this person does have people on the other side of the country, and this person would "do the right thing" if asked and then move away to "sulk in her grief." After ten years away, we get the Dragon and this???

Hoping we can get some Frankie/Jake stuff going on with Darfur and Iraq PTSD. AMC flew to the top on Vietnam; this is a wonderful opportunity to become That Soap again, and I wonder if it isn't because of the behind-the-scenes shake-up that I heard. Ashley, is this shake-up true, is a HUGE behind-the-scenes person, um...returning?

Can't wait for the podcast this week, guys. Happy to hear Jordan is back. Pedro/Peter must need a break to find him some au naturelle women! LOL!!

Cosmocat said...

Ladies, instead of cleaning those detergent containers to death, how about mopping the floor or sweeping! I don't think they keep the prisoners busy enough.

So why isn't Erica is a minimum security prison for white collar crimes. Why is she rubbing elbows with the blue collar criminals? She must not have as much clout as she thinks.

loving the podcast and Mr Pedro Von Peter!

I don't think all of you should gang up on those sharing their opinions on the co-hosts. Personally I do not mind any of them but like the others I feel that Jordan is the best. However, I agree about having the others Pedro and Taylor on with Ash and Jordan i think that idea rocks.

You and I are so there...I too loved the Erica/Janet/Sky/Kinder
storyline/ people just dont understand how funny La Lucci is. It was also great writing to have such black humor going on ( Just in case some people dont know the term. It's comdey that has a more dark, morbid edge. Im loving Erica right now.

Anonymous said...

I agree about the Kinder storyline. It was one of the best. The only problem I had with that was the way they made fun of Marion and how Kinder would have sex with her and then act like he was so disgusted because she was a more mature woman. She was probably as old then as EEK is now. Other than that, it was priceless and I was really sorry when Kinder went to prison. I always hoped he'd make a return. Also, I liked the actress playing Skye, though can't remember her name.

Blue Skies,

I believe the actress who played Skye then was Carrie Genzel, who I think improved the longer she was on (of course, I came in to AMC at the end of the Robin Christopher regime).

You've convinced me, AMC sucks, I am going to stop watching. Thanks for the information. I was enjoying it. I love Aiden, I think he's cute and adorable. I loved all the storylines but you guys have shown me that I'm wrong to have a crush on Aiden and the whole show is not right.

Take care.
