At the moment, CBS' The Bold and the Beautiful is more fun than just about anything else on television. Credit goes to its always intoxicating blend of beautiful people, Hollywood glitz, fashion industry glamour and extreme family dysfunction that make for a dependable distraction from the miseries of our prolonged pandemic. But now there's something more. B&B is the first television series I can recall to feature a quirky quintet that includes an eternally optimistic young woman, her equally decent husband, a dark and twisted man who is obsessed with her, the decent husband's ex-wife (who is also the obsessed man's sister) and a seductive mannequin. You read that right.
