Very hard to watch. Am 61 & it seems as tho this show & the many characters who have come & gone have ALWAYS been a part of my life. If Bo & Hope have to end, this is the best, tho saddest, way. NO ONE can take over the role of Bo. Hoping Bo's life ends gently with Hope by his side.
Right now I'm quite upset at the show for running the insensitive glioblastoma storyline with Bo. Its basically a rare and almost always fatal cancer, the cause is unknown but it ISN'T 2nd hand smoke! In a nearby county, there's a very unusual cluster of glioblastoma cases & it's equal opportunity-kids, adults, they die. I've watched Lucas' supposedly SERIOUS burn scars disappear, which isn't at all realistic, & I'm going to assume that SOMEONE will find a mysterious cure for Bo's glioblastoma & all will be well in Salem again. Sadly, there's no cure available in REAL life.
Today Kayla tells Bo that he has glioblastoma, a very bad & almost incurable form of cancer, cause unknown. Just like Lucas' severe burns "disappearing" & children ageing years in one season on DOOL, there will be some mysterious & last minute "cure" found & Bo will immediately be healthy. There's a cluster of glioblastoma cases in my own state in one particular county. Its hit/killed adults & kids equally. Maybe that's why I find this story line somewhat offensive. There's been no cure for those affected with it in my own state and in other states.
I NEVER saw an uglier hairdo than what Hope was wearing before she dressed in her bridal gown! Teased, bouffant, very NOT her style & SO dawg-ugly!
I believe Bo will show up right AFTER the wedding, which gives us a lot more story line to check out!
I don't know-he has his little boy to think of too.......
Too many of the tried & true & beloved characters have left in a relatively short time. I hear a death knell for this show.
I've lost track of how many times Andre has died & returned, & just can't remember how it happened the last time. Husband got into the show too so I'd record it on VHS for when he got home from work, long time ago! Am on disability now so I can sit & watch the show every day. I get tired of this or that storyline too, but I stay with the show, good or bad! TY for more info on Martinez-its been a while since I've seen him on anything & I just couldn't remember who he was, even tho he looked SO familiar! He's aged.......
Thanks, catsend! I KNEW he looked so familiar! I was a huge fan of Another World & Santa Barbara, but so much time has passed & my memory fails me more & more! Didn't Martinez play in a cop series too years ago?
Not at all interested in one more kid joining the show! Too d*mn many of them NOW!
