    It starts on freeview on a new channel, channel 23 in the UK. The channel is an odd name so can't recall it.

    The last time I watched this was about 18 years ago.

    I wouldn't mind if they just started showing the episodes from 18+ years ago. Actually just start from the beginning. Or at the very least around 1990.

    They will soon run out of new episodes in the US, so already every Friday they air a past episode. I wonder what they will do when all new episodes have aired.

    here is a storyline I would love to see again: BeLieF.

    The first part is interesting, "you are going to suffer the consequences". But after that she keeps threatening them, and it diminishes the impact of the first threat, and you can't see their reactions because Brooke is still there and she's not going away.

    How do you watch this without getting murderous or something? Do they make pills for that?

    Not every Dynasty scene was TV gold but at least they knew when it was time to move on to the next one.
    This B&B scene is not simply slow-paced, it's a continuous loop!

    But in fairness that is the process of a daytime soap. Nothing moves fast. A Few years back I was watching on YouTube the recent episodes and I could just pick up where I left off about 10 years previously.
    Anyway '80s B&B is Gold.

    What about 7B?

    As @Alexis already mentioned, you have to understand the difference between daytime and primetime, at least in the US. Both then and now that scene is anything but slow-paced to me. It is the culmination of six years of Stephanie having the upper hand and Brooke now turning the tables, and like a volcano exploding of course it keeps erupting, spewing forth energy and vindication.
