Quote:I just love Zen. I love their scenes this week....the battle of the phones, the agreement to disagree, and the fact that above all else, they respect each other and can discuss things as an adult couple.They are just perfect together. Their chemistry is off the charts...they are funny, sexy, realistic, sensual, feisty, and make an absolutely stunning couple. Excellent summary on what makes this couple great!I'm looking forward to their upcoming scenes. I know TK and AM will hit them out of the park!
LOVED Zach and Kendall today...getting closer and closer to the reveal. I'm ready for it....TK and AM will blow me away with their acting. Back to today's show...the hammer scene was so cute!
Zach and Kendall had some awesome scenes today.I love that Zach gave the hammer to Kendall. LOL I have a feeling that he might be adding a "hammer" charm to her bracelet soon.
The Zach and Kendall scenes in yesterday's show were fantastic! I loved that they were not interrupted and were able to talk to each other - while showing just how much they love and need each other.These scenes were beautfully played by AM and TK. They continue to show me why I love this couple so much. I look forward to their performances next week - that will no doubt make me fall in love with them all over again.

TK and AM are just going to kill us in these upcoming episodes. But I'm so glad they get to be alone for all this mess coming up.
Thank goodness the writers strike finally ended..or we still would be in limbo. Looking foward to moving the storyline along...AM and TK are really talented actors and work so well together.

Wow amazing emotional scenes today! TK & AM gave Emmy worthy performances. I actually had goosebumps watching their scenes today. LOL
Quote:Wow amazing emotional scenes today! TK & AM gave Emmy worthy performances. I actually had goosebumps watching their scenes today. LOL I couldn't agree more they were very intense and powerful and I am looking forward to this story playing out because nobody does it better than Zen. TK and AM are the best and they never disappoint.
If the rest of this s/l is as good as today, I'm going to have to buy more kleenex.Both TK and AM played against each other so wonderfully today, I truly felt I was watching a real argument between a married couple. They made me forget I was watching a soap.Looking foward to tomorrow.
Words do not seem adequate to describe how incredibly amazing today's performance was.The chemistry, spark, the natural way TK and AM are with each other struck me the moment their characters met in Vegas. I knew they were something special then....Today, I saw two incredily talented actors do something you don't often see....they reacted to each other's words, motions, facial expressions. They gave us an Emmy worthy performance and showed just how much Zach and Kendall love, need, want, and live for each other. They are brilliant - Bravo TK and AM, Bravo.I cannot wait to see this continue tomorrow....
I agree, I was blown away by their performance.
I felt like I could not breath after today's show. TK and AM had me on the edge of my seat with such riveting performances. They took us through every emotion -- love, fear, anger, desperation, need and passion -- not only in words by through their expressions.TK and AM were simply amazing today. They showed me why they are a true super couple and belong together.Just an awesome Zen day!
I believe today was the most emotionally wrenching episode of AMC that I have seen in 20 years of watching--all due to the amazing performances of TK and AM. For a change, they had scenes worthy of their talents. And no matter what emotion is being displayed--pain, heartache, anger, guilt-- the amazing love of Zach and Kendall Slater shows thru. They really are a supercouple IMO.
There are not enough words to describe their performances today. I am in awe. This was the stuff of great Broadway plays & I have never seen the equal of this show in Daytime in over 40 yrs of watching. TK & AM put on an acting clinic today! Bravo!
There really aren't enough words to describe what I watched yesterday and continue to watch with these two. They make me forget all the time that I am not watching a real couple at home. Whether they are fighting, hanging with their kids or making love they draw me in and make me forget these are two actors. Yesterday was a thing of beauty. The whole time they had me in knots worried about what was going to happen. Their facial expressions were perfect. You could feel their emotions by just one look...you knew when they were scared, mad, sad or just wanted understanding, it was written all over their faces.The beauty of these two actors are, they weren't just saying lines and going through the emotions...THEY WERE FEELING THEM. They were a married couple fighting to save their lives. The life they have as husband and wife. BRAVO TK and Lish you hit a home run and I can't wait for another great performance today.It has been so long since I've been able to say Bravo AMC for such great writing!!!
Great heartbreaking scenes again today. TK and AM continue to amaze
It's about time AMC gave an adult sl to these two. The rest of the show faded into the background for two days while Zendall were on screen.AM was just awesome in the role of Kendall. Both AM and TK were subtle but so powerful. I don't think AMC has ever had such a powerful acting duo. AM really came into her own during this week.I love TK and have followed his characters from OLTL to now and I don't think I have ever seen him give such a meaningful and powerful performance not even when Kendall was in a coma or when he told Kendall about his dark side.They both deserve awards for these performances the past two days.
Loved them together..they are just so comfortable working together... so we always see a real and raw performance. It was so obvious seeing all the love through all the pain. Wow.
Today was another powerful performance by AM and TK. Every aspect of their acting was great. This is what makes Zack and Kendall so good. He is made and upset, but you still see the love. They both made their pain seem so real. Their scenes were hard to watch, but in a good way - because of the pain they showed.
They were so awesome today! Burn those nasty memories!
Something about fire and Zendall just seems so appropriate
I agree. It was so SOAPY..and so perfect and as usual, TK and AM knocked it out of the park!! Their performances are so subtle and heartfelt...they really broke my heart.
Great show today (so glad Kate Hall wrote it). TK and Lish were AMAZING. My only problem was that there was too much on today. I really hate when the actors get to say one line and they jump to another scene. You just get invested in the scene and you're on to something else.
That was the hottest "applying ointment" that I have ever seen. whew..Missed a lot of today because of an ABC news interruption. All I can say is thank goodness for Soap Net.
Zach and Kendall were just so...words fail me! Putting that cream on was a symbol of healing. Their quiet tenderness was so touching. I loved it. And I loved the better balance of the show. And for once no Annie, Ryan or Greenlee. Amen. The ugliness of 12/19 is done!
Love the ZnK scenes this week. TK and AM are simply the best
I know. I think they are the only couple on the show that are given scenes with little or no dialogue..and they manage to take my breath away anyway.Great stuff..and may I take this opportunity to thank AMC for finally getting it right. I appreciate they seem to have realized their mistakes and corrected them. I for one am grateful and gives me hope for the future of AMC.
TK and AM rocked their scenes this week. Just incredible! Thank you! Real Zach and Kendall are back! Thanks, AMC for getting it right. The writing seems to be getting better. Everyone is being written in character. I have actually watched the last three shows live. That's big for me. No fast forwarding though I did something else when a couple of unlikable characters were on.
TK and AM have been amazing the last two weeks! Who knew putting on burn cream could be so utterly hawt
I was completely enthralled by their scenes this week. I hope this spells the beginning of the end to the sucktastic sextet. They need more adult sl's . I hope they come up with something that will keep them together yet in oppostion on some business matter.
TK and AM do the most with even minimum dialogue. They have such a great connection as actors..and as all the good acting coaches will you, acting is not acting unless you are "re-acting" to your scene partner. They work SO well together...I believe every moment they bring us.Yes..an end of the sextet from HECK would be a good step in the right direction. I don't want a Zendall without problems..but the ones connected to Greenlee are boring, overdone and ridiculous at best. Enough already.

The woman kidnapped their child and drove off a cliff! I'm not saying go after her with a pitchfork, but no way in heck would they be friends with such a creature.It's really amazing when you see mature, well-written stuff for Zach and Kendall and then see how many levels they dumb down the characters when they have to have them in scenes with Greenlee and Aidan.
TK and AM are a real team. They are so natural with each other - with a lot of dialogue or very little. They convey Zach and Kendall's thoughts and feelings with a simple look, touch, or movement.They are a spectacular couple and so far, as much as I hate the ONS and believe it never should have happened, I am happy with the way the reveal to Zach, has been handled. I look forward to them continuing to work through this.And yeah, I'm sick of Greenlee being involved with Zach and Kendall's story. I'd be happy if they moved her into a story of her own - that does not involve Z and K.
I am certainly not a die hard Zendall fan, but I do see that. TK and AM have the most natural, realistic and true chemistry I have seen. I also think it's wonderful that TPTB have decided not to fall into the soap cliche of revenge sex or some nasty revenge plot after Kendall's ONS with Aidan was revealed to Zach. I am glad to see a real couple, working through real problems. It's a refreshing change of pace for soaps.

I am glad to see a real couple, working through real problems. It's a refreshing change of pace for soaps. I think that's why a lot of people like Zendall because of the natural way the two actors interact with each other and how they really don't fall into the cliched modes. And I think soaps should allow that to happen more often with all their couples. Let them develop naturally and don't force relationships.
Absolutely Birdie. Some of the greatest couples in soaps came about naturally - and Zen is one of them. TK and AM do have an ease with each other and such natural chemistry that they just work. They are not cliched. They are exciting and unpredictable.Where the ONS never should have happened, I do like that Zen is dealing with it. It is a new story for a couple and one that TK and AM are handling beautifully. I look forward to the time where Zen is completely healed and in a new, better and stronger place.
Lish seems to agree with how you all think about why Zen is so popular. She was on NW afternoon with Cindi and this is what she said when asked by Cindi on why Zen are so popular.
AM: I think it's because it was unexpected. It was a couple that was sort of thrown together unexpectedly, and um they're different in that they may not be the typical mushy sort of...you know, he's very sort of brooding and cool and she's sort of all over the place...kind of like her mom. And I think that they're so different, but yet they compliment each other. He calms her down and she sort of balances him out. And I just think it's very unexpected. So they're a little different then your typical soap couple.
I THINK I mean I'd like to think.
As far as the chemistry this is what Lish says are the reasons for their great chemistry...IMO it shows.
Thorsten and I, we love each other and we always have fun together. And I think from day one we had a really cool sort of energy between us. And you know obviously we put it into our characters and I think that when we do have scenes together there is a lot of passion whether we're fighting, whether we're having sex, whether we're just talking. There is always something going on not just oh honey honey I love you, there is always something there.
I saw that interview...it was nice reading it again.
Love Lish and how she always is such a Zen booster. Love how she talks about the energy and love they share as friends and how it carries over onto the screen..
Alicia is such a sweetheart. Loved seeing her (and TK) this week at the POZ benefit here in NYC. They are the best...as is Richie, her fiancee. It was a great night.
TK and AM are indeed the best. It was great seeing them this past week! They do share this awesome friendship that carries onto the screen. The ease and comfort level they have with one another transfers to Zach and Kendall. That creates this real quality about this couple that IMO, makes them unique in daytime.AM has frequently said that Zen is not mushy - most soap couples are. I love watching Zen when they are just talking, whether they are face to face or calling each other on the phone, I love Zen when they are together with other people, they stand side by side and you see the affection they have for each other in their looks and all the little touches, and I love them when they are making out or having sex. (BTW, these are two very sensual people, it is always hinted that they make love every night.....why don't we see more of it?? It is soap after all and soaps are known for love scenes). I love them when they are silent and are just together.Thanks to TK and AM - they have created this wonderful couple that does it all and I attribute it to the wonderful people who portray them. They are just as special as their characters.
Quote:(BTW, these are two very sensual people, it is always hinted that they make love every night.....why don't we see more of it?? It is soap after all and soaps are known for love scenes). It is a known fact they cut out a lot of their sex scenes. I think the PTB do it because they would have to rate the show higher, if they allow these two to really show us what they have. There is a reason we see only one 3 minute segment of Zen loving, Zen does A LOT with little time!!!! Plenty of heat in a short amount of time. IMO

I feel that if they let relationships develop naturally, other pairings could be just a successful. Forced pairings and relationships never work because they are simply driven by plot and not character. [ex...Plot= two people being trapped in a bomb shelter together. That's a forced relationship if I ever saw one.]
Showing the Zach and Kendall love! Can't wait for the return of REAL Zen who aren't reduced to being a certain character's doormat
Quote:Showing the Zach and Kendall love! I would like to see them on screen together for more that 5 seconds at a time. I miss seeing them TOGETHER!
Me too Phyllis given the chop job AMC did on Friday someone aught to be fired. I can't believe how they actually cut through a conversation. One minute Zach is leaving the Yacht club the next he is in Kendall's arms and she is yelling NO. Ummmmmmm could we have had less of the other stuff and at least given us the complete scene? I would think a murder investigation is more important then let's say a sail on the water with a conversation with a stuffed animal. The plot point was her getting hit on the head and Ryan realizing his twu wub. We got it and maybe less of it was called for if it meant a major section being cut out of another scene. Which IMO made that one not make any sense at all. JMO
I am showing MY Zach and Kendall love but it's hard because because they are rarely on screen together and when they are, they spend most of their time talkiing about Greenlee and now Annie/Richie. On Friday, however, their scene was cut so short...and edited so poorly that they didn't have time to talk about anything, let alone what lead up to ZAch's arrest. Instead we had to listen to the teenagers talking for the gazillionth time if they should say anything. Having Petey Cortland just coincidently noticing blood on the car, when the teens already announced that their car had no teletale signs of an accident was ridiculous as best.And yes..listening to the ever wronged Greenlee (ahem) wondering if she could trust Aidan again - which I am sorry makes NO sense to me- was equally ridiculous. Is she wondering that the nex time she gets locked in a hole, will Aidan will not succomb to grief sex? It's not like he had an affairfor the hell of it. Yeah talking to a stuffed animal while in a bikini was certainly more critical than seeing the scene that leads up to Zach's arrest for Richie's murder, a storyline they have been showcasing for weeks.I understand no characters should be on 24/7. I don't expect all Zendall all the time. But this is just insulting.
I have little to add to the insulting way that Zach and Kendall are being treated. This couple has captured the imagination and love of the fans in such a way that I haven't seen since Luke and Laura. Instead of capitalizing on it, they are diminishing their airtime and connection with each other to focus on a kidnapping, baby maimer that has no appeal. Why? The baby maimer has not brought in any revenue by way of higher ratings. I'm only supposing her gig as hostess on the red carpet show at the daytime emmys was a way for her work off the wasted dollars they spent on her return, that so far has been a failure. A failure that can squarely be laid in their laps. TK and AM are actors that are capable of such a range of storylines..deeply romantic, sexy, funny and highly dramamtic. Why not use that range instead of suppressing it to prop useless charcaters like Annie and Greenlee?If Greenlee is supposed to be all that a piece of cake too, then why can't she carry a storyline of her own? Maybe because she no longer fits in?
I'm continuing to show Zach and Kendall my love every day.
I love Zach/Kendall/Ian and Spike. Go Team Slater !!!! Why is AMC writers not writing for them? I have been tuning into AMC alot over the past two weeks and not much Zach/Kendall storyline or Zach/Kendall. Why is it that Spike got a Birthday Party and Ian didn't get one?
Many of us fan who watch AMC consider Zach/Kendall a Supercouple on AMC and the Supercouple baby didn't get a Birthday Party or at least a cake with his parents acknowledging his 1st year of life. Wow, I didn't know that AMC would be so cruel to the fans and not give little Ian a Birthday shout out.
Why is AMC giving Zach/Kendall so much airtime away from each other or lots of airtime with others like Ryan, Annie and baby maimer? It's hard watching the quad of Ryan/Annie/Aidan/baby maimer with Zach/Kendall propping them. Is AMC afraid to write a storyline for Zach/Kendall away from Ryan/Annie/Aidan/baby maimer fearing no one will watch them unless Zach/Kendall are propping them. Yes, they are probably right, because I have endured many, many years watching the same redux with Zach/Kendall entangled with Ryan/baby maimer that I've had enough.
When is Zach/Kendall going to get a promo with no one but them in it without Ryan/baby maimer/Aidan/Annie like Ryan/baby maimer and the recent Taylor/Jake got a promo all to themselves. AMC, don't you see what's wrong here. The most popular couple on AMC Zach/Kendall cannot get a Birthday Party or any kind of shout out, Birthday cake for the Zach/Kendall baby Ian, no storyline of their own, no promos, but the characters the fans aren't interested in get everything.
Only thing the overall characters/actors have in common is the horrible writing and out of character writing to prop to make the characters the fans hate look good like Ryan/baby maimerAnnie/Aidan.
Please give us some fantastic writing for Zach/Kendall as a couple working together and their family including Josh and Erica. Please !!
I loved Zach and Kendall today - they were smokin hot! If this is what we get, I hope Kendall keeps meddling so Zack can lecture her some more. I was diapointed that Ian did not get a birthday party, but I think they might have changed his birthday. I seem to recall Kendall and either Zach or Erica commenting he was born 3 months early, not the correct 4 months early. I was shocked when it was said because I know he was born 4 months early. So I am still holding out hope for a birthday party.Alicia and Thorsten were wonderful today!
I loved their time at the beach the other day! Zendall love scenes are the best.
