Wow, Bold and the Beautiful fans are super tech savvy and plugged in! I saw the link back to here from one of the chat board sites and then my stats went out of control. I assume it is all of you visiting here.
Take a minute, tell me what you think and ask questions. I am having a great time reading your threads and conversations. http://boards.soapoperanetwork.com/topic/37729-bb-october-discussion-thread/
Two questions that have come up are:
“How is the show “making history” and “are they treating the subject too lightly“?
Today and tomorrow the show is making history because they are mixing in REAL stories (More real than a “reality show”) in with the story line. A fictitious character is asking very real people how they became homeless.
Is it too light? Well, no. If the show jumped completely into the theme of homelessness – you would all jump ship. I certainly would and I do this for a living and a hobby. By giving you a different but accurate introduction to what skid row and the shelters are really like – The Bold and the Beautiful is inviting you to taste test the issue. They will return to the story line over and over again and go through the layers of what homelessness is really about . However, now that your appetite is whetted IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADDRESSING THE SUBJECT – IT WON’T BE SO FOREIGN TO YOU.
oops, cap lock. sorry about that.
But, seriously, if you want to know more about homelessness and how you can help – no matter where you are – read my blog for ideas or leave me a comment or shoot me an email or twitter. I am happy to be your tour guide – and look for me to join your chat board as Princess12Toes 🙂
Oh, and tell me what you thought of today and tomorrow’s episodes. Please and Thank you!
