Ashland Locke OUT at Y&R - Richard Burgi set to go

I can't believe this.

Burgi's Ashland Locke was the best new character on Y&R in years.

No word on if they'll kill him off, recast, or have him leave town.

I've always liked him. They wasted his character. Young and the Restless is unwatchable. I don't care about a single character on that show. I've watched it every single day for about 5 years. I stopped watching it every day about 2 to 3 months ago. I might watch it about once a week now.

And yet, they keep that actress who plays Victoria Newman. She’s a total dud. Devon is more entertaining than her. And THAT’S saying something.

People still watch these soap operas? It made sense when most people only had network TV, but with so much better programming available 24/7?

by Anonymousreply 3January 9, 2022 3:30 AM

I love, love, love this Victoria. Every now and then, there's a scene in which I marvel at how Pinched Sphincterina would have soured the moment. She was one of the reasons I hated Y&R back in the late '80s and early '90s. And then she had to bring her Sour Girl vaginations to Llanview.

I wonder if Billy won't be able to keep himself from ruining Ashland's life in some way, or whether they'll just let his cancer take him out. Either way, he was a good addition, one I wish were staying.

He'll die either at home in bed or sitting on his sofa in his dressing room and that will be that.

wardrobe will get some fab black outfits for Nikki; she and Ashley will make peace. Sexy Robert Parucha will come back as Matt to honor his brother. They'll spring for flashbacks. The soap press will dredge up the time he attacked Bergman back in 1991; classy Peter won't comment on it. He'll say something nice about Eric.

I came to love him when he starred in The Sentinel. He had chemistry with the younger male actor who played his roommate, and he was totally cool with the idea of making them a gay couple. There were outtakes of the show, where Burgi adlibbed and kissed the co-star. I don't know what happened to the co-star, Garrett Maggart, but they were great together.

Either way, too bad. The actor was very good in the role, and the character is infinitely more interesting than the overexposed, tiresome, ever-whiney, ever-juvenile Adam Newman and Billy Abbott, taking over, losing, retaking over each other's family businesses ad nauseum. Even if the role of Ashland Locke is recast, how does the character survive his advanced lung cancer?

I can’t stand the character tbh. He’s probably lying about being sick anyway. The guy left his friend for dead and received money fraudulently from a dying woman. Of course Victor and Victoria, assholes that they are, find this all peachy. I hate the Newmans too. This show is a mess.

That was more a function of the fact Josh Griffin took over as HW right as the Rosales family (not Hernandez, they're on Days] was expanding. Griffin wasn't interested in the family and wrote our Arturo and Mia right away. He finally got rid of Lola about a year ago after barely giving her anything for six months before that. And althoguht Rey is still on the canvas, Griffin is barely giving him anything to do.

Stunned the man is still writing the show. But not a lot of options for other people to take over as HW. However, I'm sure Dena Higley would be happy to come aboard and kill the show with her sleep inducing stories.

by Anonymousreply 71January 14, 2022 8:54 PM

I appreciate all the diversity at Y&R and the black families have been well done, perhaps the best of any soap.

I meant more another white family to replace the Newmans or Abbotts.

And I wasn't resistant to the Hernandez family/Latinos. But both DAYS and Y&R made the mistake of just overwhelming the canvas with them all at once. The mandate at most shows is to keep it fast and keep it moving, but some things have to go slower. Introducing a family would be one of them.

The shame is, Bill Bell knew to do this and add the Newmans and Abbotts when the Fosters and Brooks families lost all the story possibilities, he knew it would reinvigorate the show. They have really dragged out so much of the family rivalry, etc.

Could there be any surprise left in a Newman vs Abbott rivalry? Not one.

Is there a single note La Bergman hasn't played? Who on earth could he be paired with that anyone would care about? He's nearing 70. Hans is 80. They at least seem to be keeping Nikki and Victor together because how many more times can you get anyone to care what these two old hams are doing?

I don't want what happened at GL or ATWT to happen either, where vets disappear or someone recasts them all in such a way that they're unrecognizable. But something's got to give. And for all the apparently shitty parts of his regime, I was hoping Mal Young would shake up the show.

by Anonymousreply 72January 14, 2022 8:56 PM

Mal Young apparently had lots of issues as a boss and a leader (apparently he led through intimidation by yelling and screaming routinely). But he was also creative and willing to try new things. I have to give him credit for that.

As far as Mia goes, I saw her as a Hispanic Erica Kane. A nice comedic touch and also hungry for a better life and willing to go to extremes to get it. I thought there was tons of potential for the Mia character. Was very sorry to see her written off. I thought that was a huge mistake.

My thoughts on the Rodales family: I looked when they brought on Ray and Arturo. The mistake was LOLA. Brought her on as the opposite of Summer but she was too high on a pedestal and changed Kyle (who first came back as devious, flirty, ruthless). Made the couple boring and one note for me (no wonder they suddenly divorced them). Mia was definitely an asset but the fraus at FrauCentral didn't like her from the get go. I remember thread after thread created about their disgust with her and that she should go. I think that forum is used as a sound board by producers/writers for the remaining soaps.

Ray's mom could've been a good pairing for Jack but again Josh misses great opportunities for storylines. He had a gem in Devon's sister Anna and the link between the Abbott and Brooks family Theo until he wrote Anna out in favor of boring Elena, and then he wrote out Theo too. A lot of possibilities with the scheming Abbott-Brooks hybrid.

Now we are left with crappy, boring storylines.

by Anonymousreply 82January 14, 2022 11:14 PM

One of my issues with Griffith's Y&R is that it's just too damn business-oriented. I know Y&R had the "bedroom-boardroom" tagline as far back as the early 90s, but I really don't care about who takes over what or who controls any of these made-up companies any longer. The show needs to refocus more on actual relationships with more "domestic" drama. I was looking at this montage clip that was presented as part of the 1998 Daytime Emmys. I can look it at and immediately remember each and every storyline the clips relate to because they were about the relationships going on back then.

Young marrieds, Nick and Sharon, having their first born, Noah, while Grace and Tony bring waif Cassie into the picture. (btw - Tony and "Peanut" were so cute!)

Diane Jenkins caught between her history with Jack, but being swept off her feet by billionaire Victor.

Victor always involved in Nikki's life - this time while she's married to Joshua Landers - while Josh's deranged ex-wife, Veronica, goes unrecognized living in their household as Sarah the Maid.

Ryan McNeil in a triangle with Tricia and Nina; then there's Ryan's strong relationship with stepson, Little Phillip (Chance), to consider.

Aspiring model Drucilla pretending to be okay with having another baby with Neil, while secretly being on birth control.

Sinister Phyllis hooking up with ex-con Michael LaBaldwin, with lawyer Christine goes on a mission to get Danny full custody of his non-bio son, Daniel. .. Will Paul be odd man out?

Can a hip, streetwise photographer like Malcolm Winters make things work with a straight-laced doctor like Olivia? At least Little Man (Nate) thinks so.

R73, not sure Mal was that great. He was inspired by Big Little Lies when Nikki, Victoria, Sharon and Phyllis had the secret about killing JT.

Forget that he's lying there rolled up in the carpet and he's not really dead. The four women met in public for weeks on end whispering about how they had to keep it a secret.

And then Christine lets OF ALL PEOPLE Phyllis take a plea deal and turn on the other three to avoid jail time.

The courtroom set was card tables and folding chairs. Sad.

And then JT's being alive -- surprise surprise; but he only physically abused Vick because he had a brain tumor so he wasn't responsible but still went to jail because...um. not sure.

Noemi was talented and watchable as Mia BUT what woman in their right might cries out another man's name when in bed with Jordi Vilasuso. With him and Arturo, who was Ridge and who was Thorne?

Robert Newman is too soft and old looking. He's one of those types who morphed into a lesbian as he aged. The role demands someone more masculine looking. Can we get the gorgeous and talented Mr. Muhney back as nuAshland if he promises to behave himself? Is all forgiven? There was more to the story.

Y&R is, as guidance counselors used to say, simply "not living up to its potential." With great history and great actors, it sucks. It is without energy, without drive, without passion. The actors can do only so much without good stories. Oh, and for a character who is doing security work in the army, they hire someone who looks like he should be strumming his guitar and smoking weed. BTW, the remark above "what woman in their right might cries out another man's name when in bed with Jordi Vilasuso" got me aroused. Oh, Jordi!

by Anonymousreply 107January 20, 2022 8:57 PM

R92 Yes. Burgi was originally hired for just 10 episodes. However, it was right around that time when JaBottom & Dummer's contract negotiations went south, so they had to change the planned storyline and write around their impending exit. With that move, they asked Burgi to stay on longer into the summer (about another three months). During this time, they brought Ashland into Wimptoria's orbit, and at some point, they opted to write around that relationship, so they offered him a contract.

R141 I think the last time we heard about "current day" Casey was when MTS was having her big contract brouhaha with Sony, and TPTB had to write her out for awhile, so they sent Nikki off to take care of Casey who was said to be undergoing treatments for breast cancer. That was 2009.

Since then, the only time I remember Casey being mentioned were during those two special "Nikki Centric" episodes. The one was the Christmas 2011 episode where Nikki was drunk and crashed her car, and an Angel visited her to talk about her life. When Nikki talked about Casey, they showed an old flashback of the two sisters. .. The second one was in 2019 when Nikki was in jail, and decided to write her "true life story." During that episode, she recounted some stuff about her and Casey, and there was a flashback related to the time Nick Reed came back into their lives, and Nikki ending up killing him when he tried to rape her.

Other than that, the last time we actually saw Roberta Leighton playing Casey was after Veronica Landers plugged Nikki with four bullets, and she was in critical condition. It looked pretty dire, so Casey & Her Big Ol' Bee Sting Lips arrived to keep vigil with The Newmans. Nikki flat-lined, but was revived. That would have been 1998. .. Shit! Twenty-four years ago!

I like Gloria in measured doses - the actress is comic and under her the role was good levity compared to the rest of them suffering endlessly. I thought they were on to something in the past few years when Gloria and Jack got it on.... much more entertaining (and believable) than 301-year old Jack Abbott bagging women forty or fifty years younger. But LML was too much for my enjoyment. Mileage always varies with these things... I could have watched the Marge storyline for five years. It's so rare Y&R has even a flash of fun.

Even Bill Bell himself was done with Brooks and Fosters.

R219 that was one of his mistakes, I think. How could he tore off wiring them in 7 years ('73 to '80) but he was able to write for the Newmans and Abbotts for over a decade? He should've kept a couple of them in Genoa City. Didn't make sense that an established influencial family in a city for how many generations just uproots and leave. The writers keep missing that opportunity to introduce these rich characters to a new generation of viewers.

So when Hasselhofenburger and his pet, Jaime Lyn Bauer, announced their intention to leave, that was it. Enough. No more.

He retained Jill Foster and moved her into The Abbotts. Undoubtedly, the longtime Kay-Jill feud had a lot more mileage and was too good to jettison.

Marj was great as Vanessa. It s too bad they did not keep her as an amoral socialite and mother from hell with long-term potential and turned her into a psychotic drug lord which made no sense with her back-story up to that time.

by Anonymousreply 235January 26, 2022 2:51 AM

Poor Marj. She had a comic background and always tried to leaven the bitches she played with humor.

I loved her and respected her work but she was an actress who would dial it up if not directed, and she went over the top on both GL and AMC. And the more she went over the top, the more the writers ramped it up, and it derailed, especially at AMC.

by Anonymousreply 236January 26, 2022 2:54 AM

AMC really wasted its potential with Marj. She and James Mitchell as Palmer were so delicious together, and snobby digs at Opal were hysterical. The discussion boards at the time used to refer to them as the "PalmNess Monster." Agnes wrote her as an amoral socialite, and then Jean Passanante and later Richard Culliton introduced the drug lord aspect which made zero sense.

There's so much the writers don't understand. Business should only be a background for human conflicts. We don't care about Jabot or Chancellor Enterprises or whatever...we care about the people in those stories. Tell us stories about people in conflicts that we can identify with. The business stories should exist but be background for unrequited loves, triangles, struggles with addiction, people put in ethical dilemmas. We also want to see our favorites front and center, not as "talk to" people for the latest models hired. Really talented writers know how to create stories we want to watch, not simply day by day repetitive dialogue that, in the end, goes nowhere. And it can't all be talking...there needs to be some activity. Y&R has become the show of characters simply talking to each other every day in different combinations on different sets in nice clothing.

A lot of popular springs have been business-themed plot-driven. Business shouldn't be in the background per se, however, the Newman business angle has been done to death. Should see Devon trying to handle the gargantuan arena of the business world and coming into his own instead of yet another Newman sibling rivalry in the boardroom. Also, Adam may be reformed but he's losing his edge and is being too obvious in his wanting validation from Victor. That's not his and Victor's dynamic. That's Victoria and Victor's dynamic.

Well, the thing is, Mackenzie is Kay's granddaughter, so basically, the same relationship as Devon. .. And if they were going have Kay leave Devon that much money based on his bio-relationship (since she barely knew him), then at the very least, the money should have been equally split with Mac. .. Kay not only knew Mac far longer but thought the world of her. They had a very loving relationship. PLUS, at the time of Kay's death, Mac had already given birth to one of the two great-grandbabies that are related to Kay: Dylan Hellstrom. Since, then, Mac's had Kay's great-granddaughter, Becca, as well.

The memorial service and reading of the will would have been a perfect opportunity to introduce a new, more dynamic actress in the role of Mackenzie. Instead, Team Phelps-Griffith didn't even have the character make an appearance.

Business storylines work when there is personal fallout. Jill getting 20% of Jabot after her divorce from John meant she'd still be in John and Jack's lives.

On B&B, Brooke taking 51% of Forrester in exchange for the BeLieF patent meant she'd get leverage and revenge over Stephanie who bullied and tormented her for years.

On GL, Phillip got Alexandra on board to jettison Alan out of Spaulding because Phillip was tired of his father's machinations in his life.

Brooke slapping Stephanie back after taking Forrester Creations and Phillip drinking a bottle of champagne on the floor of the country club "You try and disown me now, Dad." were great soap moments that came out of business storylines.

One of the last business stories I enjoyed on Y&R was when Victor hired Michael LaBaldwin (ca. 2003) to be his corporate attorney at NE, but then soon blackmailed the legal eagle into being his bag man in a commercial bribery venture so that Saffra could get Jabot's shelf space at retail department store chains. It's how the Victor and Michael's "consigliere" relationship started. .. Michael had, of course, been bad, but he was in the beginning stages of trying to change (post Isabella plot), so he didn't like being Victor's "goon,", but felt compelled to do his bidding, as Victor had evidence that made Le Bug look guilty of Isabella's "murder." .. This move was also tied into the original plan that Michael would become romantically involved with Victor's daughter, Victoria, but after Heather Tom exited, TPTB had to switch gears and had it bring Michael into Lauren's orbit, since Fenmores was one of the department stores that Michael was meant to target. So long-term this business story led to both the Victor-Michael and Michael-Lauren relationships.

I knew when Brooke had 51% and the rest was divided up among Eric, Stephanie and their kids.

A show COULD tell a business storyline if they cut out the BS, set it up and bring the emotion. The musical media companies on Y&R are a joke; it makes Restless Style look like a well plotted episode of Revenge. Actually, come to think of it, no, Restless Style sucked. Jack and Phyllis and Nick and Sharon all started a magazine without any professional advisors. And Sharon and PHyllis should have been at each other's throats -- not out shopping like they were one day.
