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

Still tantalizing after all this time
2 July 2002 | by yaki_jSee all my reviews

The bold and the beautiful can defiantly be blamed for the mistreatment of its most important character, the divine Mrs. Brooke Logan, but in the last few years, under executive producer brad bell, it became one of the most surprising and shocking soaps.

The once slowed-paced show has became a blink-and-you'll-miss-it TV with plenty of surprises and shocks still in store.
