The Young & the Restless: "Where's the Beef Wellington?" edition.

As showrunner Mal Young begins to roll out his own questionable stories, it appears we're still faced with one big problem: NO BEEF !!

Has Traci eaten it all? .. Or did Noah get to it first?

Where are the HOT YOUNG MEN on this less than appetizing soap?

We need more than Beale's Fruit & Veg Stall from Albert Square.

Although, if he's in some kind career free-fall, I suppose he might consider it.

Yeah, Thad's still a hunk. He was super-hot about 10 years ago. There was a scene when JT and Victoria had first started seeing each other, and Brad came to JT's loft looking for his wife. JT came to the door in a towel. WOW. The whole scene was quite homoerotic. Forget Boretoria. Angry Brad should have ripped his dress suit off and thrown JT down on the sofa and fucked him.

You have to LOL at the fraus who tweet Mal Young 40 times a day with their every thought about Y&R. Do you really think he has time for that shit? He is the EP and headwriter of Y&R. He writes and produces 250 hours of tv a year. IF he is reading all those tweets, then he isn’t spending enough time concentrating on making Y&R the best that it can be. And remember that he’s 2 to 3 months ahead in writing. He’s focused on what is happening in February. Tweeting him today about something that happened on the Thanksgiving episode that you didn’t like is long gone from his mind and will not accomplish anything. Dumb fraus.

What's funnier is how Bell chose not to have Traci be part of the first big "Madame Mergeron" reveal when Dina originally came back. .. Even FauxPatty is on hand, but not Traci... LOL!

Their dialogue always consisted of Jill calling Katherine old and drunk and Katherine calling Jill a slut. You didn't need anything else. Wash, rinse and repeat.

by Anonymousreply 4111/22/2017

OMG the acting was horrid all around in that scene at r34. And that dialogue! Bill Bell was a master at crafting slow-burn storylines, but his dialogue is part of the reason soaps are ridiculed. However, watching that scene you can see why his transition from Brooks/Fosters to Abbotts/Newmans/Williamses was so successful. He kept the tone of the show exactly the same, complete with similarly awful dialogue and original music cues, but with a fresh new set of characters. So he was able to rejuvenate the show, all the while retaining the elements that had made it compelling and successful.

Let's Breakdown the Abbott family dysfunction:

Jack became a womanizer because Dina left them.

Ashley become a fragile, needy, caregiver because Dina left them.

Tracy ate to cover up her insecurities and feeling of abandonment because Dina left them.

Mamie tried to overcompensate for the missing Dina by not taking a switch to Jack, being more firm with Ashley, and turned a blind eye when Tracey got into the sticky buns.

John was insecure in his abilities as a man because Dina left and overcompensated with young women.

Billy is fucked up because Jill is fucked up because Katherine fucked her up. Jill was trying to put her life back together and was with John, but Katherine had to bring back Dina which made Jill insecure and fucked up again.

So to end this little essay the two people that are to blame for everything are Dina and Katherine.

And Dina all on her own had sent in her front-man and young lover, Eric Garrison, to do the Jabot deal, then when things were to be finalized she arrived as the mysterious "Madame Mergeron." .. And even prior to that story, there had been a smaller arc, where Jack had hired a private investigator to find his mother, and some woman was presented who wasn't really Dina. .. Kay wasn't involved.

R110 Kay and Dina did scheme against Jill, but from my memory, that came later, more so after Brenda resumed the role. (Adair was playing Jill when Dina first returned.) But after Brenda came back, Jack and Jill had their cabin tryst, and Kay and Dina were sniffing around Jill's pregnancy thinking something was up. Also, Dina was making some kind of claim that Jill's marriage to John was invalid, with Dina saying her divorce from John may not have been finalized correctly or something. That proved to not be the case.

Jeanne Cooper denounced soap operas telling stories about Alzheimer's in her very last interview. Somebody forward this link to Mal!!!

[quote]TV Guide Magazine: Neither do you. Word is, you're not happy with these strange symptoms Mrs. C is experiencing. Cooper: The writers want you to think it's Alzheimer's and it's driving the audience crazy. It'll turn out to be a benign something or other. But if it was Alzheimer's, I wouldn't have played it. TV Guide Magazine: Meaning you'd have quit the show? Cooper: Absolutely. Nobody wants to see that. Y&R is an hour of escape and relief for people. That's what's kept it on the air 40 years! The audience wants Katherine vibrant. They want to see her kicking ass. I've worked hard for that. There was a barrage of concern as soon as Katherine started forgetting things and misplacing things. Then I got one script where she was supposed to be seen reading a pamphlet about Alzheimer's. [Head writer] Josh Griffith came rushing into my dressing room all breathless, saying, "Don't worry, it's not what you think! It only looks like Katherine has Alzheimer's." I said, "I'm not worried. You don't think I'd do an Alzheimer's story, do you? You'd have to get somebody else."

Mal gets mixed reviews in the UK.

When EastEnders was having problems in the mid-00's, and EP Louise Beridge quit, the arts and media correspondent at The Observer wrote:

"Others believe that Mal Young, the dynamic head of drama series at the BBC, is the real root of the problem. A demanding and powerful personality, Young first made his name as the co-creator with Phil Redmond of Channel 4's groundbreaking Liverpool-based soap, Brookside .

"'To be honest, one of the most difficult elements of the job of producing EastEnders is dealing with Mal,' said a former writer on the series.

"Young now oversees the content of Holby City as well as EastEnders and is also quietly developing a new, big budget regular drama series for BBC1. Created in the style of Holby City, the latest drama off the production line will concern the relationships between a team of lawyers and the plotlines are already being drawn up behind closed doors. Actors and writers at Elstree are convinced that this new baby has distracted the BBC's drama executives from tending properly to EastEnders .

"'Mal Young rides in every now and then and gives out his ideas, which you have to follow. He is quite scattergun and I think that can be very frustrating,' said a writer on the show who has since left the BBC. 'He was brought in as a populariser and even once appeared in Hello! with his girlfriend. In some ways he is not a very good fit with EastEnders .'

"Tuesday's episode last week attracted the lowest ever ratings in the series' history - in previous eras the show might have expected an audience of around 10 million - only 6.1 million tuned in."

-----------------------

Also, his last attempt at TV in Great Britain, a scripted reality show called 'Desperate Scousewives,' was a flop with both critics and viewers. It was canceled after eight episodes.

btw - I don't think that legal drama The Observer mentions ever saw the light of day.

Didn't Jill pay Mamie to leave town? That was such a stupid story. Mamie would never leave the Abbotts. And wasn't she in love with John? Another interracial love story that was nipped in the bud because they didn't want to upset their conservative viewers.

by Anonymousreply 30612/03/2017

Jill did pay off Mamie. But in fairness the chemistry between the actress and Jerry Douglas' toupee was about the same as between Traci and kale. And John Abbott would marry just about anybody.

by Anonymousreply 30712/03/2017

The Traci/Lauren stories were some of the most relatable things on TV, let alone daytime. Lauren would bully Traci before Bullying became a buzz word. Traci was the fat Abbott sister. She was always in Ashley's shadow. Lauren was jealous of Traci's family life and tortured her. I remember a scene where Lauren was measuring her waist and thighs at the gym Traci was going to to try and lose weight. If you met Beth Maitland in person (the actress who plays Traci) you would think "wow she is a normal sized woman.." because she is. Tracey Bregman (Lauren) is like 4'9" and about 100 pounds. Anyone would look huge next to her. Danny did not fall in love with Tracey. Brad did because she was nice to him and helped him. She took an interest in the Pool boy and helped him to become a man and executive. Sometimes it's not about a size 0.

John and Maime was an interested story that was executed poorly. And they used a bunch of code language in that story, "John Abbott would never fall in love with THE MAID!!!"

I remember when John first declared his love for Mamie it came out of nowhere. It was one of the few genuinely shocking moments the show has ever pulled off.

by Anonymousreply 31012/03/2017

r310 you're right - it did come out of nowhere. They made it seem like they had been building up to it for a long time but I never got the impression they were harbouring feelings for each other.

However, I did like the story because I thought it brought up some interesting dynamics, especially between Mamie and Jill. I liked the second actress who played Mamie, Veronica Redd.

by Anonymousreply 31112/03/2017

I didn't like Veronica Redd at all. I found her humourless and strident. It was an interesting idea but badly written and for me badly cast. Conversely the first Mamie was too soft to take on the Jill / Mamie dislike that fuelled that storyline.

by Anonymousreply 31212/03/2017

The first Mamie was perfect. Veronica Redd was too in your face. But John wasn't going to go for either Mamie. The story gold would have been John and Katherine, even though John preferred younger women.

Kay Heberle lost the weight and at one point so did Beth Maitland during her 1st stint on Y&R. I think Traci looks NORMAL - tha'ts Traci and bless her family for loving her and not making her feel like shit that she's fat. Yes they could do a story about diabetes with Traci or heart disease but they've got enough with Dina and her Alzheimer's. A realistic scene would be Dina fat shaming Traci and having it blamed on the Al'z - that would be hard to watch but totally believable.

This show is getting very, very, dull. The relationship between Chelsea and Nick is not in the least interesting yet they were featured today like they were some kind of golden couple. Nikki and Victor are going to get back together for the 300th time ... I agree about Devon; he's supposed to be so rich and all yet he's working this PR firm like it was crowd-funded and can't afford staff. The budget cuts are starting to become obvious with the lack of sets -- a LOT of Devon and Neils business dealings seem to take place at the Athletic Club. I suspect that Victoria's story arc -- having brass and sassy absorbed by her father's company was driven by cost cutting; they can now get rid of the brash and sassy set and she and Victor can share offices, as do Ashley and Jack.

TBH, the only reason I watch is that my SO watches it, so it's on. I would not be watching, nor would I watch the B&B which is even worse with the horrific plastic surgeries their actresses have.

R352 So far just the latter. (Although, I might spell it, "Tesbian.")

When Mariah had her separate conversations with Kevin and Sharon about her feelings for Tessa, the writers avoided using the word "lesbian" (or "gay" or "bisexual") in the dialogue.

Instead, they had Kevin interject with that old chestnut, "Why label it?" .. And when Sharon asked her nervous daughter, "You thought that I would have a problem with you being attracted to women?" Mariah was quick to point out, "Not women. Just her."

The Chancellor Park "development" story sounds utterly stupid. .. Surely, Kay's billionaire grandson, Devon, would step in to prevent Grandma's legacy park from being turned into high-rise condos. And wasn't the park part of the Chancellor Foundation administered by Brock? Why would they sell?

And it's hardly any kind of imaginative or riveting story, either. .. It was just a regime or two ago, where Y&R had everyone upset that Crimson Lights was going to be knocked down because of some urban development project. They can probably use the same scripts. Just change Crimson Lights to Chancellor Park.

Of course, maybe it won't go any further than to get Nick politically-motivated to run for mayor, or something. He does need a job.

But one thing - Carmine wasn't killed off. While Fenmore was up for his murder, Michael discovered that Carmine was still alive. T he feds had put him in the Witness Protection program for turning state's evidence. Carmine wouldn't return, though, because he was fearful that Womack would have him killed for real, if he learned he was alive. In order to clear Fen, Michael had Carmine make a video holding up a newspaper with the date on in. Once the judge and D.A. Christine saw that, the case against Fen was dropped. But then, a few weeks later Womack was killed, so really, there may not be a reason for Carmine to be in hiding still and he could probably return.

If they do write then in they are stereotypically gay as a goose Because old fat fraus like their men seasoned like beef and their gays fruity like chardonnay.

R430 That doesn't explain the casting of less-than-stellar younger actors on the show during the last year.

For the newbies under the age of 40, they gave us: Reed, Charlie, and Scott on contract. And Ravi, Zach, and Jordan on heavy recurring.

But I wouldn't call any of these guys soap hunks. And this is supposed to be America's No. 1 Daytime Drama? You'd think Y&R would have their pick of hot young talents who are looking for exposure to around 5 million viewers across combined platforms.

Just take Scott. imho - Viewers should be drooling when he walks into a room shirtless. After all, he's supposed to be the son of sexy Lauren Fenmore and hot Scott Grainger (Peter Barton). Instead, I kind of winced when he came downstairs without his shirt on today.

Sally may have created these characters, but Mal was EP during the last year. He should have had power in the casting process. Are these guys his idea of hot?

Please, a different, hotter and better actor to play Devon. Nick is a whiner, the young crowd can barely act. Where is the fire in these people? Hillary may be evil but she's the only one with balls.

r431 you're right. Back in the '80s we got Brad Carlton, and he's remained hot throughout the decades (Don Diamont is still hot as fuck on B&B). They need to bring an actor on who is really hot and acts decently.

Billy Miller is one of the last times the show brought on an actor who really clicked with viewers.

I'm dating myself, but I remember when Y&R was one of the most provocative shows on daytime filled. So provocative that I was little and my grandma used to make me go outside and play during Y&R. I could watch the other shows with her, but not Y&R because that was grown ups. There was even a time when they were showing guys asses on Y&R. At some point someone made a decision that Y&R was no longer going to be the pretty people soap. It was probably after Bill Bell was gone. Personally, I think that the people over at CBS truly believe that Y&R is number 1 because it is better than the other shows and not because it is a timeslot hit and people are too lazy to change the channel at lunch time. I have often said that the way to save Y&R is in its title. I'm not saying put the old people out to pasture, but they should be supporting the younger and the restless characters or being used to move story for the younger characters.

I counted 7, yes 7 soap opera's in r483's video. And that's just on *one* network. ABC and NBC had soaps then too. Truly the heyday of soaps. I think the advent of cable tv and more working women really heralded the end of the soap era. After the mid-1970's they started dropping show's bit by bit and it's really sad to see how CBS has gone so far down with their daytime offerings. They had 7 shows 50 years ago and now the two they've got left are on their last legs.

Amazing to think that millions of people sat around all afternoon long and watched soaps, every day, 5 days a week.

by Anonymousreply 490Yesterday at 7:32 AM

r490, are you being facetious? AW had been spiraling downward since the late 1970s and had cancellation rumors swirling about it for 20 years. The whole NBC daytime lineup fell into disarray in the late '70s. Days was the only show to ever rebound. Besides that, from 1980 on, the NBC daytime lineup struggled, which is putting it kindly.

by Anonymousreply 491Yesterday at 7:37 AM

90 minutes of Another World killed it. Incredibly stupid, crazy of the network to approve Mad Man Paul Rauch's vision for domination. The show lost TONS of money doing that, ad agencies started to fire back at the rates charged. The solution was TEXAS and we know how shitty that show was.

by Anonymousreply 492Yesterday at 8:42 AM

It wasn't just the 90-minute expansion. NBC's prime time lineup was really failing, and that definitely impacted the daytime end of things. Add to that ABC daytime's amazing explosion in 1978/1979, and you've got a recipe for low ratings for competing networks. CBS didn't suffer as much, probably because their prime time schedule was on fire. AW really never found its footing again creatively or commercially. Of the other NBC shows, Days was the only one to achieve any sort of success after 1980. Santa Barbara, despite being a critical success, never found a mass audience. Generations and Sunset Beach were forgettable, and Passions was never more than a little cult show. Search for Tomorrow was asked to lead off an already failing lineup when it was moved from CBS to NBC, so that was a misfire from day 1.

Brain Frons has the unique distinction of cancelling Search for Tomorrow not once but TWICE.

by Anonymousreply 497Yesterday at 5:03 PM

Frons got the order to cancel Search, but whoever ordered the cancellations was justified. On CBS, it was a dinosaur compared to Y&R, ATWT, and GL, and CBS wanted a glitzier show more compatible with Y&R, like Capitol. On NBC, the ratings were atrocious. They even threw a ton of $ at the show to stage a storm disaster and revamp it, but even that was a failure. It was well past its sell-by date and was time to say goodbye.

I liked EDGE OF NIGHT and whatever show Joel Crothers ended up on when he decided to move on.....from anything..... I used to have the last week of TEON on video- someone was selling it on EBAY in the late 90's. It was Joel's wedding to someone, including a honeymoon night negligee (Joel didn't wear it).....and the start of a brand new mystery.....

This was after it moved to ABC - in fact here's the final episode if you have 28 minutes to kill.....with the wedding, a party, AND Lois Kibbee!!!!

by Anonymousreply 50916 hours ago

Edge's final episode was terrific. It provided just the right amount of closure, and jumpstarted a new mystery, which was its signature. I think it was hoping to get picked up by USA Network to generate new episodes, so that's probably why they had the open-ended mystery. USA ran reruns, but that was the extent of it.
