Storyline

The saga of the rich Forresters and the poor Logans is told against the backdrop of the fashion world in Los Angeles. Forrester Creations is the premiere fashion house in the city, thanks to the designing brilliance of Eric Forrester and the money and social grace of his wife, Stephanie Forrester. The ups and downs of their on-again, off-again marriage parallel the stormy lives of all their children, who have shared lovers and spouses with one another and even with their own father. Ridge Forrester is the arrogant oldest son (whose paternity will eventually be called into question); Thorne, the oft-neglected younger son; Kristen, the sweet but sexually-frigid older daughter; Felicia, the wild child. At the center of many of these storms is the Logan family. Beth Logan, the matriarch, has always carried a torch for Eric. Her three daughters include Brooke, the willful and sexually promiscuous oldest; Donna, the ditsy model; and Katie, who has always felt overshadowed by her more ... Written by J. Spurlin

My favroite show
17 March 2002 | by JenningsSee all my reviews

The Bold and the Beautiful is a soap about the Forrester family and their troubles. I have watched the show since day one, and the focus has really changed. I miss many of the old charactres (Ivana,James,Bill Spencer,Sheila,Macy), and don't think the new ones (Massimo,Decan) are really all that good. Ridge not being Eric's son totaly ruined the show. There are still great preformers (Taylor,Ridge,Clarke,Stephanie,Throne). One of the four remaining actors/actress is Brooke Logan who's job is to be a bitch, which she has pulled off well in the last 15 years. Overall a great show which has seen better times.
