Y&R seems to deliberately cast the flattest, most expressionless younger actors. I can only assume it's done on purpose so that Hans, Aunt Jack and Nikki aka Tits McGee aren't outacted by them.
Even The Staff has lost her edge. She is truly There For The Mortgage Payment. We lost Gina Tognoni for THIS?

So when is the Tucker, Jeremy, and Daniel three-way? .. After all, they're all staying in THE EXACT SAME HOTEL ROOM .. lol.
Hilarious because Room 405 (Jeremy), Room 406 Tucker), and Room 407 (Daniel) are all in the same place in the exterior hallway and all have the same (corner) view from rear window in the room. The only thing the set people are changing inside the room now is the painting in the small sitting area.
They might as well rename the Grand Phoenix, Genoa City's Motel 6.

Meanwhile, GH has multiple restaurants, kitchens, a stable, a roof top pool in the summer...
Y&R doesn't even try.
I think Bill Bell hired some bad actors over the years but he wrote so much story for them, and the actors showed up and played it every day that fans didn't always notice how bad the actors were.
Noah and Allie are no Grant Aleksander or Lisa Brown but they have no story either.
WRITE SOMETHING. That'll hide their not-so great acting, which I don't think is actually all that bad.

R18 I don't see Carlivati being the right fit for Genoa City.
btw - There's no reason for Carmine to have a twin. He's not dead. It was revealed that the authorities faked his death and put him in witness protection after he agreed to turn state's evidence against some mobster they were after. .. We saw LaBladwin track Carmine down and take a photo of him holding a newspaper with the current date on it in order to clear FenMo of murder charges. .. And a return would be entirely believable, since we later heard that the mobster Carmine helped put away was murdered in prison, so there's no real reason why witness protection would still be required.
Carmine lives! .. And he's definitely among my top characters to mount a return.

When Kay died, the writers should have (but had no interest in) re-defined who was in the house.
Put Jill and Esther in there; have Nina move in. Pit Devon and Mac against each other in some kind of inheritance battle.
But instead they moved Billy in there and painted the place battleship blue/gray.

Y&R really does have a problem writing for the younger characters. The show did not do anything with Moses and Faith. They did not do anything much with Mattie, Charlie, and Reed. One of the oldest tricks in the book is to have a couple who is torn apart by a third party--and working to find their way back to each other. The problem with Allie and Noah is that they were thrown together so abruptly that it doesn't matter if someone else comes along to tear them apart. They don't feel like a couple that's worth rooting for. And I really don't care about Noah and Audra's past relationship in London.

R32 They started to develop a relationship between Lily & Tyler Michaelson. But the nutso Lane stans weren't having it and bashed Tyler (and Redaric) constantly.
Part of the story had to do with Tyler's history, where they let it be known that he'd previously been in a serious relationship with a woman who very much resembled Lily. This woman's name was "Mariah."
At that point, "Mariah" was not supposed to be this pale redhead played by Camryn Grimes. We'd already seen part of Mariah's body in a flashback or two, and she had the complexion and body of Christal Khalil. One rumor was that CK was going to play a double role, or they were still looking for an actress who resembled her.
In any event, around this same time, McDaniel (CBS) wanted Grimes back on contract, and the show needed some kind of entrance story, so they quickly changed things and had her become Tyler's "Mariah." (JFP tried to sell the lie that this had been the plan all along .. lol!) Needless to say, Camryn and Redaric had zero chemistry. The whole thing was quickly dropped. Redaric was soon written out; thereby putting the kibosh on anything more between Tyler and Lily.

Sally: I would give anything for a simple life in The Valley (*). My parents were carnies.
Saul: Stop. No. No, they were not.
Sally: Yep. Yeah, they were. They were in the carnival circuit all over California and Nevada. You name it, we were there.
Saul: So -- so you and Coco, you went with?
Sally: Yeah. Yeah, we traveled all the time when I was young.
Sally: But Coco was obviously still a baby. And then my, uh, parents, they did some sketchy stuff on the side.
Saul: Like what?
Sally: Ran some scams. Rigged some games -- card games. They were always dealing cards. And, uh... that's not the only thing they were dealing.
Sally: They would do anything to make some extra money. That's just how Spectras are. You know how grams always says that Spectras are survivors?
Sally: Yeah, we're more like swindlers. We come from a long line of very talented con artists.
Saul: I just had no clue that it was that crazy.
Sally: Well, eventually, my parents were unable to care for me and Coco.
Saul: So that's when you moved in with Shirley?
Sally: Yeah, I mean, if it wasn't for grams, we would have been thrown into the system.
Saul: Wow, thank goodness for Shirley, huh?
Sally: Yeah, I mean, she tried to give us a really good life. She worked hard at the bakery, she scratched and clawed for every buck. Yeah, and now here we are, turning this place into a knock-off shop.
Saul: Well, there's nothing wrong with that.
Sally: We come from generations of hustlers, years and years of scammers, and then out pops Coco. She's like this angel baby, the most innocent little girl that you have ever met in your life. And thinking of taking advantage of her... I don't know. I don't know. Maybe this is her fate. Maybe she is destined to become one of us.

[quote] ... never landing long enough to establish anything lasting.
While he seems to flit from here to there on social media and often comes off like an overexposed teenager on Tik-Tok, I don't think I'd go that far.
He's been with the husband for nearly three decades now. He's also very close to his Louisiana family and friends. The photos and clips of his big 60th birthday gala down in New Orleans showed that. Plus, there are gay couples based down there whom he and Sid have been socially-tight with for years (e.g. husbands Bryan Batt/Tom Cianfichi and David Bernard-Charlie Urstadt to name a couple). And besides "their children" (three dogs and a cat), they both throw themselves into lengthy, detail-oriented home renovation projects of historically significant properties. That appears to be a shared passion. And unlike some daytime actors who seem to flounder when their airtime becomes scant or nil, he immediately pivoted to his other longtime passion: his art.
Beyond his frenetic social media persona, I'd say all of those relationships and activities in his 'other life' are lasting, long-term constants in his life that he's engendered.

R72, here and I sit corrected; R73 is quite correct. He has a long running marriage/relationship with Sid, the husband. I've never heard of any cheating on either side. Thes same can't be said for most actors.
No, I more meant how he buddies up to the flavor of the month in terms of new actors; he's all over social with them and then if that actor goes, he's on to the next one.
He's a little like Dickie in the Talented Mr. Ripley; when he shines his light on you, you feel like you're the only other person in the world and then when it goes away you're like ...huh? (That's not the right quote exactly but that's the gist of it.)
I've met him briefly and after, a mutual friend used the butterfly analogy. You can't let people like that get too close to you in show biz. You have to know it's not real or sincere except in that moment.

R89 The year Lily was born (1995), Nick was an 18-year old virgin getting his hole primed with spit by The Wartman in prison.
But seven years later, they SORASed Lily to 14 when she returned from Europe in 2002, so they added about seven additional years to her age.
Except for during the time when they egregiously aged Lily's twins to teenagers, Khalil has basically played her real-life age in the role. Joshua Morrow as well. She's currently 35. He's 48. btw, Morrow is actually three years younger than Khalil's long-term, ex-screen partner, Daniel Goddard (Cane). Meanwhile, Jason Thompson (Billy)is 46, yet looks older than Morrow. (ftr, Billy is only supposed to be two years older than Lily as he was born in 1993.)
I remember viewers noticed that Khlalil and Morrow worked well together during some make-believe, fantasy sequence several years agp. (I actually think they were shown to be married?) Anyway, they had a hot kiss and some viewers were calling for the characters to hook-up for real, saying they looked good together.

Funny how when Billy was born (1993), the story was that Jack and his sisters were an entire generation older than him. John was done having kids, and Jill seduced him with martinis before he could have the vasectomy. He even wanted Jill to terminate the pregnancy.
With JT in the role, Billy now looks like their slightly younger brother.

R103, Jason Thompson is one of my favorite actors and a truly nice guy.
He is miscast as Billy Abbott. Chuck Pratt asked him at the Emmys if he wanted to come over to Y&R; Chuck, who had no idea what Y&R was or where it should go. Jason, wanting a better deal at a more secure show (maybe) jumped ship.
AT GH, fans were not going to let go of 'Scrubs' easily so he was in a lose/lose.
However, he was much better as Patrick, the doting dad to Emma.
Patrick was a welcome breath of fresh air after all the mobster leading men on GH -- Sonny, Jason.
He looks like Fred MacMurray, he's aged. He should go back to playing Patrick.
The podcasts, the moaning over Delia...forgiving Chelsea for raping him...it's all so boring and dull and stupid.

Maria Bell NEVER should have killed off Diane and CBS Daytime never should have forced her to hire Maura as Diane; totally miscast. Walters is younger than Donnelley and West is younger than Walters.
Ironically, casting a non fat fuck up frat boy as Billy could have endangered Bergman since Thompson's Billy is just a young Bergman/Jack.

Yeah, The Return of Tara causing trouble seems like Soap 101. I think they'd have to recast Tara, though, since the original actress who played the role was pretty subpar.
If Days doesn't plan on keeping Jessica Serfaty around as the recurring "Sloan Petersen," she'd be a welcome addition to Y&R. I'd say she's been the casting find of 2022. (Although, I can see where Serfaty may not want a contract, soap gig. She appears to make $ as a social media influencer, with her 1 million IG followers and related projects.

When Daniel told Phyllis and Danny last week that he'd hit "rock bottom," he should have gone further in his conversation with Lily today and confessed that what he really meant was that things got so bad for him that he went to a seedy motel room, presented hole on Grindr, and bottomed for any anonymous guy who wanted to fuck him. .. He explains that it was both an expression of low self-esteem and a form of self-punishment.
And that's what really sent Heather packing, as it brought up the bad memory of Adam cheating on her with Rafe.
Lily thinks a bit and surmises, "So basically, you went from porn addiction to a form of sex addiction?"
Daniel glumly replies, "Yeah. But my therapist feels it was just a one-time blip, and I'm not in that dark place any longer."
"Well, that's good to hear," Lily continues, "And it's also good that you were at least honest with Heather."
Daniel sighs, "Yeah .. But I was kinda forced into telling her after I came down with monkeypox."
"Hey! Don't beat yourself up!" Lily says. "Monkeypox, chlamydia .. we've all been there!"

As a Dead or Alive fan, I own that concert film at R148. It's a mashup of two concerts that occurred in Japan 1987. There are also some interesting outtakes included with the video filmed when they're not onstage. In one, the band is about to go onstage, and Pete mentions that it's "James birthday" implying he's got a very special 'gift' for him. The sexual innuendo is pretty obvious. Hyde worked with Pete in other projects besides this. You can spot him in other DOA music videos from the era.

The search of Stark's room was stupid. If Chance doesn't have a partner yet, then he should have grabbed a uniformed police officer to go with him. Not only that, police don't just go to a hotel like the Grand Phoenix without first checking in with hotel security and notifying them of what they're doing on the premises with someone from that office accompanying them to the guest's room.
Of course, maybe making Chance look dumb and not following protocol was written on purpose and will be what leads to Stark being released.

Luckingbill only came back for that abuse story. (Boy's got bigger and better things to do than this silly soap.) .. As I recall, I believe he said something about the dark nature of it is why he signed on for Mal Young's story. He wanted to play something different.
At least JT's volatility, anger, and violence was explained by his brain injury that occurred when he was previously electrocuted. That fit with past story. And after it was all over and he'd had the surgery, he didn't try to excuse-away what he'd done. Instead, JT returned to his more 'noble' persona and simply plead guilty without trial, accepting his prison sentence.

The issue with Y&R is that they won't do that any more, because one of the ancients might get offended the new star is taking their shine. So it will remain a dishwater dull rehash of what has been said before.
Chris McKenna should have had a three year run, but instead, the minute he started to spark onscreen, they made him a killer. No wonder soaps are dying.

When Kevin pulled some shit and was going o be locked up overnight in holding, McKenna played Harding so tenderly towards Kevin; don't worry, he said. I told the guards to look out for you.

It would have made perfect sense, if Harding had just been one of those gay guys who are 'out' in their personal life, but don't discuss their sexuality at work, especially since he was a police officer.
And they had the perfect set-up for Kevin to discover this when they wrote that little bit about Harding having asked Fish to take care of his pet, "Roscoe," while he was out of town.
Kevin later reported to The Scooby Gang that he thought Roscoe was going to be something like a Doberman or python, but that's when we learned Roscoe had turned out to be - surprise! - a cute little bunny rabbit.
Not only that, but Roscoe also turned out to be a "she," and to Harding's surprise, had baby bunnies while he was gone. .. There were jokes made about this, including something about Harding being confused about the female of the species and his general ignorance about women. .. Noah even snarked to Harding that perhaps his unseen girlfriend named "Lonnie" - who apparently had just dumped the dateless detective - had turned out to be a guy. .. Hmmm.
Instead of that lameness, they should have shown Kevin go to Harding's apartment -- a fashionably-appointed abode, no less! .. And while he was taking care of Roscoe, done some typical Kevin-like snooping around.
That's when Kevin would come across items that made Harding's sexuality perfectly clear: perhaps a framed photo of the gay rugby team that he played for when he lived in Chicago .. a copy of Mark Perry's gay superhero novel, "Hero," on the bookshelf (with an inscription and a "Love Always" from another guy) .. a colorful assortment of designer jockstraps in his dresser drawer .. and that tub of Boy Butter in the nightstand along with several classic DVDs from Raging Stallion, Falcon, and Titan Men studios. .. And right when Kevin is holding the copy of "Trespass 2," Harding would come home early asking. "Wanna watch that one with me, Fish? You might learn a thing or two."
And of course, post-sex, we'd learn Mark asked Kevin to go to his apartment and take care of Roscoe on purpose. .. This was his plan all along.

[quote] I can't stand that she-bitch Kevin is married to on the show.
It's my understanding that Kevin and the she-bitch aren't actually married.
Recall, Kevin & Chloe married, divorced .. married, divorced .. and were about to get married for the THIRD time, when it was discovered that Chloe had murdered Adam. She ran off in her wedding dress before the ceremony got started. .. Then, after they faked Chloe's own death with her becoming "Helen Jones", we saw Kevin propose to "Helen," but he added that they couldn't actually get married, because it would be too risky.
I believe they just cohabitate, and unless they've mentioned getting hitched in some throwaway line, we've never seen a Wedding No. 3. And looking at them in a screen cap from next week's party for Lauren, I notice that neither of them are wearing wedding rings.
Perhaps there's hope for Kevin yet!

It was way back in 1980 when Steve Williams suggested to Jill Foster that she use her practical skills and experience from working at Hazel's Beauty Salon and co-managing The Golden Comb with Derek Thurston that she go and apply for a job at Jabot Cosmetics. (Original John and his cosmetics company had just been introduced.)
Jill was able to convince the stuffy old fart that her prior jobs had given her a real-life insight on what women wanted when it came to their makeup and how they wanted to look. John went on to hire Jill as some kind of lower-level marketing assistant where she then gained more on-the-job experience.
Also, RealJack didn't work at the company. Jill learned that John had always hoped his playboy, tennis-bum son would clean up his act and come work at the company, so that he could assume the mantle one day. This was his dream, not Jack's. .. It was actually Jill who sought Jack out and convinced him to come work at Jabot to make his father happy. At the start, Jack only agreed to do this, because he thought he could start something up with Jill, and of course, there were also the bevy of models the company hired. .. Jill took her work at Jabot seriously, while Jack was just there for fun and games.

I would suggest a business storyline where we see FenMo begin a relationship with Lauren's assistant, Trey,
But after Fen & Trey have been fucking for awhile, Fen learns that Trey has been forging department store purchase orders for men's high-end, designer underwear and jockstraps. .. Apparently, Trey has two muscle studs on Fenmore's loading dock who intercept these shipments. These are then funneled to Trey's network of international Instahos who sell the purloined undergear on the black market at deeply-discounted prices.
FenMo is then left with the dilemma as to whether to tell Lauren what he's discovered about Trey's illegal operations or just try to ignore it because he's fallen for bad boy Trey. .. As we know, Fen himself is no saint, and going on all-expense paid holidays with Trey to places like Fire Island, Provincetown, South Beach, Tel Aviv, Mykonos, Ibiza, Rio, etc. etc. etc. where all of Trey's sales operatives are located has been quite a bit of fun!

Phillip taking over Spaulding to punish Alan was glorious. But GL also did the "control of the company" so many times. When teen mom/cop Harley became CEO, no one believed it or cared.

I've never seen "bad" Diane, and the actress is appealing in a way Phyllis/Michelle has never been. I really want someone to murder Phyllis. Or for her to be falsely accused of murdering someone and get the death penalty. I give her the finger when her slide comes up in the opening credits.

It's funny to think that this thing between Jack and Diane has been going on now for over 40 years (1982). Original recipe Diane was the Jabot model that RealJack slept with from his bachelor party the night before he was to marry Patty Williams. Ashley found them in bed the next morning, and she and Diane had to drag his furry butt butt into the shower to try to sober him up before the ceremony.

Hunter was okay, but after she booked that CBS prime time gig (Life In Pieces), McDaniel considered saw her as a *star." .. McDaniel was always trying to get actors from prime time cast on the soap, so she made sure Y&R did everything they could to accommodate HK doing both shows. As I recall, Mal Young had enough of that and eventually put a casting call out for a NuSummer, but McDaniel didn't want anyone else, and they ended up delaying story and leaving the role open until HK's prime time show went on hiatus at the end of the season. Once that happened, they played Summer almost every single day for a month or more since she was only going to be available for a short time. After the prime time show got canceled, she came back to Y&R full time. Lucky us.

Right, and when JFP and Griffith came in (2012), they brought three of their actors over from the Nickelodeon telenovela, Hollywood Heights, that they'd just done for Sony.

I've met Jill and it's not that she's not nice or pleasant but I've never remotely liked any show she's ever producer.
SB -- wasn't a fan. It was soo much. I did like the shows last year with Rauch and Pam Long at the helm. I know that's verboten to say to true SB fans.
GL - started out okay but once she lost Kimberly and Beverlee (!!!) and Sherry and then chose to kill off Maureen, GL felt less like home. Bringing on Tangie and a host of other ex-SB actors was a big mistake.
AW - Frankie Frame. AW was not ER.
OLTL. I don't even remember it.
GH. All mobsters all the time. Frank saved that show from cancellation.
Y&R. She didn't know the history of the show. Brought Steve on and gave him too prominent a role. Painted Chancellor mansion gray.
There's nowhere for her to go except DAYS. If she goes there, she'll do her usual stuff. Big story for a few vets, bringing on some pals from other shows. Some critical acclaim but she robs shows of their identities.

Phelps was a short term fix. She ultimately ruined every show she touched. That was a weird thing about daytime. They kept recycling everybody. No matter how shit you were. You just had to get in. The longest she helmed a show was four years, the shortest a year (maybe less.) In fairness to her, those tenures are fairly consistent with most EPs. But I'd argue few left a show as consistently despised by fans as Phelps did or accused of such widespread vandalism to the fabric of the thing.

When Bill Bell ran Y&R employees stayed for a long, long time...often until they retired. Network execs and Sony execs were kind enough and SMART enough to leave the man alone and let him crank out the No. 1 show on daytime.
After Bill stepped down, CBS and Sony started putting their fingerprints all over the show. An ex-ABC exec came in and got the idea to do away with Bill's team that was left in place after he stepped down.
So...whoever put that decent tribute to Tracey/Lauren together probably never saw that scene or didn't think it was important because they never watched the show back then or back in the heyday.
The soap sites have people writing for them who really know the shows.

What annoys me about some daytime fans is the selective hating on certain behind the scenes people. If it's someone you like, when they screw up a show it is always someone else's fault why the show is a mess. And when it's someone they hate, it's always that person who is responsible for everything.
Like all soap execs, Jill has had some hits and she's had some misses. She's made mistakes, but it's hard not to make mistakes when you're running a soap opera. You can't possibly get it right every day. Except for comic books, it's the one form where the fans tend to know more than just about everyone else.
The thing most people don't know about Jill is that when she is brought on to a show, she is brought on for a specific reason. Usually, to do something that either the network or the production company wants done. And to her credit she does it. She's a company girl. And she's secure enough to take the hit for unpopular choices, that may or may not be her own.
The woman also has people she likes to work with. That is no crime in the entertainment industry, and they all do it. Jill may be a little more in your face about it, but they all do it.
I recently saw someone post that JFP hates Genie Francis. The truth is everybody hates Genie Francis.
Don't get me wrong, there are some genuine hacks in daytime. People who should not be allowed anywhere near these shows, that's not Jill.

In 2004, the web was alive and well and there were still a few other magazines -- Weekly, In Depth...that might have been it, actually. and even tho SOD and Weekly were the same company and In Depth didn't really cover DAYS at that point, Digest HAD to spoil the ending.
The issue came out like 12 days before the reveal, I recall.
R357, Jill got hired at Y&R b/c an old pal of hers from Santa Barbara is a mucky muck at Sony and didn't like Maria, who was not the best person in charge.
ANYONE can come into a show and clean house, cut the budget, fix the mess that was left behind -- but the real question is what's the show going to look like in six months?
Jill did not know the history of Y&R and it showed; there's no way that Nikki and Paul could have had a baby but Steve B had to be shoehorned into the show no matter what. After Jeanne died and Katherine's death was written into the show, we should have gotten Kay's heirs in that mansion; have Jill move in. Keep Esther. Keep the place ALIVE. Have Mac and Devon compete for some kind of running of Chancellor position or whoever delivers an heir...whatever....SOMETHING.
You are correct in that the name of the other person who hires friends is EVERYONE. That's true in show biz. But when you're entrusted to continue the legacy of a show, you should try to continue it -- not just hire your pals and leave it a mess.

Maria was her own best character.
She couldn't see the Forrest for the trees.
What every regime is guilty of, those who have a basic understanding of the show, is that they ignore what came before them if they didn't see it or like it. Maria wrote that Phillip faked his death to go live the gay life in Australia.
Okay, here's what that didn't work. Phillip gave up Cricket and wed Nina, the mother of his child, because he had no father. Cricket, who grew up without a dad herself, was on board. Why would Phillip walk out on Nina? There was no hint that he was gay. And he didn't come back when Nina was on trial for shooting David?
God bless him, the actor who played Phillip couldn't act. He couldn't articulate. He couldn't make a choice, deliver, and be believable.

Most of them don't. You are not going to find anyone working in daytime who knows the history of these shows, like the fans do. The people who write and produce these shows do not have the investment in these shows that the fans do. They are just trying to produce 250 episodes a year and not make too many changes to alienate what little remaining audience they have.
And when the show brought someone back who was supposed to know the history, they were immediately let go because they couldn't sustain the ratings. Because, the Y&R that some people claim they want, is really not the Y&R they want. But we could go back and forth about that all day.

R365, Doug Marland knew the history of shows; he had Marie Masters back for ATWT's 30th and as soon as he could he brought her back.
Nothing is stopping from hiring people who know the shows. ATWT turned into Port Charles when Herring, Damon, Shriner, Lindstrom, and Pinson and probably some others popped up in Oakdale.

Both the scriptwriter (Janice Ferri) and breakdown writer (Natalie Minardi) for the special Lauren retrospective episode are long-time vets who have been with Y&R since the late-80s, early-90s, so they should know quite a lot about Lauren's history. .. Also, the current Associate Head Writer, Amanda Beall was hired by MAB in 2008 with Beall's first scripts airing just a month before Lauren's apology to Traci occurred. So she, too, was there for that. .. I'd guess that what flashbacks were and weren't included probably had more to do with the limited amount of time they have for just one episode more than anything. .. As the episode began to wind down, it looked like they wanted to focus on how "mean girl Lauren" became "new and improved Lauren" because of the the (so-called) love-of-her-life, Michael LaBaldwin. - jmho

The MESSA adoption "story" is the lamest thing I've seen on soaps in a long time. In every step of the process we've heard about them going somewhere (to the agency, some counselor, meeting the birth mother, etc.) -- UNSEEN -- then the two of the come back to Crimson Lights to report to some third party what happened. These type of stories are rarely interesting, but this one is deadly dull, worse than reading a magazine article on the subject.
And since the process has been so lengthy for them, I don't even understand why they opted to adopt in the first place. They're both healthy, young females. The cost of buying a semen at sperm bank is probably less than their round-trip flights to Portland. And isn't Mariah still some kind of unseen executive at JaBooty?

R414 Esther had a one night stand with a big guy named "Tiny." From what I remember, we never heard Tiny's last name, so he's usually referred to as "Tiny the Plumber." After Esther had the baby, I believe Kay called the plumbing company up under the pretense that the toilets at the Mausoleum were stopped up, so Tiny came out to the Chancellor Estate. When he found out that Esther and the baby, he took off. Esther's entire pregnancy was pretty much written as a 'humorous' interlude.
And even though Tiny was in hardly any episodes, the character was played by two different actors: No.1 was Joe Petracek. No. 2 was Terence Tierney.

With the lack of sets on this show now, any murder trial would have to take place inside Crimson Lights.
They'd have some underfive judge (*) sit on a stool behind the front counter of the coffeehouse while the jury occupied the booths against the wall. Witnesses would wait on the outdoor patio until motioned inside by the silent twink barista who would be pulling double-duty that day as the courtroom bailiff. These people would be sworn in by owner-manager, Sharon, using the daily specials menu. So too, this is when we'd learn that Esther Valentine also works as a part-time courtroom reporter now, thereby giving Kate Linder her one episode every 13-weeks per her contract requirement.
(*) The actor playing the judge would be a well-known soap opera veteran, so that all of the soap websites could turn it into a BIG casting announcement, despite the fact that it's only a two episode gig.

R455 Yes, JaBottom had been in contact with Victor, but whatever that collusion was about turned out to be a red herring in relation to the scandal that went down when the the film about Dina's life story was shown. The big scandal that got played in the movie was a clip of Dina reminiscing about her whoredom and now saying that Jack wasn't John Abbott's son. Due to circumstances, it was easy to point the blame at Victor and Kyle, but both men denied that were behind editing the finished product to include that clip.
It eventually turned out that Ashley had taken Charlie's finished film and added the clip to it. This was her revenge against Jack for his having added the "Blood Abbott Clause" to Jabot's corporate charter, meaning she could never be CEO. .. This now meant that Jack couldn't be CEO either. .. In the process, Ashley also paid to have DNA tests doctored to show that Jack wasn't John's son. .. It even came out that Ashley manipulated the easily-confused Dina to have her say that.

|by Anonymous||reply 473||February 12, 2023 7:51 PM|
R473 Jack Abbott became a wuss in the first story that Bill Bell told after LaBergman took over the role. .. Talk about taking a character in a NuDirection.
Bell had Jack swoop in and marry Nikki in a quickie marriage. When Victor found out, he offered Jack Jabot in exchange for Nikki. Jack was going to take Victor up on his offer - which would have been typical Jack - but one think led to another and the deal didn't go through. Soon Nikki took her husband back (for saving Victoria's life) and Jackie began lactating over birthing babies with Nikki. When Lester had been in the role, Real Jack wanted nothing to do with babies. He ordered Jill to get an abortion, then later plotted to get a vasectomy while married to Patty in order o avoid that unwanted consequence at all cost. .. But when Aunt Jack was married to Nikki, they got pregnant twice, losing both babies. One by the horseback riding incident and the other after Nikki fell down the stairs and delivered too early. These events provided LaBergman with many weepy, sentimental scenes. They even threw in the melodramatic heart transplant arc with the last one. .. Next up, we got the eye-rolling Vietnam retcon. No one on the planet could imagine Real Jack ever going to Vietnam. He would have avoided the draft any way he could. He was a womanizing playboy and a tennis bum. But now we're to believe he was this mushy soldier boy pining over his "Mai Yun." .. To his credit even Bergman says he hated that one.

R475 I believe Lester's last story (1989) was Jack's big plan to take Jabot public, with Victor learning about this from Jabot mole, David Kimble. With that inside information, Victor was able to put together a strategy to secretly buy up Jabot stock using various entities to take control of the company. .. Victor wanted to show Jack just how "Ruthless" he could be as revenge for Jack's recent scheme involving Leanna Love, where Leanna wrote the unauthorized biography about Victor.

The year the Vietnam story started was the same year that the ban on trade with Vietnam was lifted (1994) as well as a lead up to the 20th Anniversary of the Fall of Saigon that would take place in April 1975. At the time, the news media was making a really BIG deal of these things. I'm guessing Bell (and others) wanted to capitalize on these real life events. Y&R even did a big location shoot where they sent Paul and L'Bug to Vietnam to look for Luan's missing son, Keemo Volien. He was like Wild Boy and lived in the jungle .. lol.

It seemed like Bell was hinting at doing some kind "Southeast Asian" story when Bobby Parucha was playing Victor's brother, Matt Miller.
Matt wasn't a Vietnam vet, but we'd heard occasional references to him possibly being some kind of "soldier of fortune" who'd flown planes over in that area of the world. That's why he was able to get a job at Jabot as the company's private jet pilot.
And not long before the character was written out (1987), we saw Matt having nightmares and night sweats, as if memories of something traumatic were troubling him.
I remember surmising that Matt's plane had probably been shot down on some mission and he was either captured or was in hiding with some locals helping him. So something like that could have had the seeds of a love story as well.
Characters with a blank slate such as Matt are much better for stories like that than taking someone like Jack Abbott who'd already been a character on the show for 15 years.

Parucha would probably be the first to admit that he's not the greatest actor in the world, and he knew his career path lay elsewhere. As I recall, he sort of just fell into modeling when he was a grad student at UC Santa Barbara, and that led to his photos being seen, with him getting a few man-candy roles, which then led to him getting a contract as a daytime soap actor. (Sounds like Shemar Moore and a few others back then.)
He's got a fairly successful clothing company that he runs (Delta Pacific Activewear). And while his enthusiasm for Y&R remains high, I think it's more along the lines of making an occasional appearance now and again. He was very disappointed that one time when TPTB refused to work around his pre-paid vacation that he couldn't cancel and ended up recasting him with that FauxMatt actor a few years ago. Parucha said that he told Y&R that he'd gladly do anything they wanted schedule-wise to come in before or after, so that they could insert the short scenes, but he said no one from the show even called him back. At least we've seen him since then.
The audience seems to love "Matt," but honestly, it would probably be difficult for someone with Parucha's level of acting experience to keep up with today's fast-paced production model where there's basically zero-time for rehearsal and no room for flubs. - jmho

I don't want to mention names but there's one star on a soap and she's considered this great big thing but all i see is a model, who, as a I said, hits her mark, picks an intention, gets her lines out, yells a lot. And it's called acting. Fans love her.
She's a team player and makes her producer's life easy by showing up, staying late, volunteering for press....but, to me, she's like watching paint dry and her latest romantic pairing with a genuine nice guy is B O R I N G. (I'm probably giving away both actors given all these details.)
But my point is Parucha is not the only model who's been on soaps; I'm not sure why producers will say nah, pass to him coming back yet others who are just as uninspiring make millions.
|by Anonymous||reply 488||February 13, 2023 9:49 PM|
r488 Very good points
The big difference is Bobby Parucha was cast on Y&R in the 1980s, long before casting models who wanted to try their hand at acting was standard practice. The 80s were still a time when your Tony Gearys, your Justin Deas, your Benjamin Hendricksons -- all strong in the acting department but weaker in the looks department -- could get cast on soaps.
Now, that's not to say some models didn't get cast on soaps in the 1980s and Y&R was likely the worst offender of the bunch. Y&R's philosophy was always let the pretty people learn how to act while on screen. But those models also showed promise as actors too. Ask Michael Damien, Todd Curtis, Thom Bierdz, Scott Reeves, etc.
But for some reason Bill Bell grew tired of the Matt Miller character and send him off. Wonder what happened.

So the 50th anniversary will be celebrated as Genoa City's Bicentennial. Which means no original cast members will be invited back, because it will be Nikki/Victor flashbacks of 200 years of their love story and constant re-marriages. They should finally retcon the Jill is Neal Fenmore's daughter bs. Why not say she was a Foster all along, and bring Julianna McCarthy back. She's still alive at 94.

R502 Yes. Lily and Kevin have shared scenes since his Poor Kevvie days when he committed statutory rape and gave her chlamydia.
Lily mentions her adult children once in a blue moon. Recall, not that long ago, she supposedly went to help Mattie with some personal problem (in Los Angeles). But since aging the twins was a mistake, it's probably best not to remind viewers about them. Perhaps Y&R can bring them back in a few years and say they're still Freshmen in college - as if their time off-screen simply stood still ... lol.
And no one, NO ONE (except Daniel Goddard) wants to remind us of "Ethan Atkinson 'Hurricane' Ashby" or whatever his name is supposed to be.
If they ever did bring the character back, I'd suggest they recast Cane with a handsome, fit-fat dude who checks in with Traci Abbott and decides to finally rock her world.

Miss Piggy came in and told Victor that she and her planning committee were working on Genoa City's big Bicentennial Celebration.
Well, 200 years ago would be 1823, but during the Incredible & Amazing Rainbow Gardens storyline (1993), we heard from Katherine that Genoa City was founded by Civil War hero, Garfield Dandridge Chancellor ( PC2's grandfather) who came to the area after the war founded the city and built the mill and several buildings. One of these was Rainbow Gardens where the poor seniors facing eviction lived. Because of that fact, SuperBug was able to save the day and have Rainbow Gardens declared an historical landmark, thereby it couldn't be be demolished by the evil owner-landlord.
btw - Rainbow Gardens sounds like a development for retired elder gays, who are looking for a vintage, tasteful friends environment.

JFP didn't understand the basics of soap storytelling.
There should have been a huge, years-long fight over Katherine's estate. Brock and Tucker should have come back to tiown to fight for it. MacKenzie should have returned to town to stake her claim on the house and the money. Other illegitimate children of Brock and Tucker should have shown up trying to get some of the billions.
All that conflict could have propelled the show for years and years.
Instead, Tucker doesn't even show up for the funeral. MacKenzie doesn't show up for the funeral and Devon gets all the money free and clear without anyone being upset, while Jill gets the house and Victor got Chancellor Industries.

Jill got Katherine's half of the mansion to add to the half that Jill already owned herself, but it came with the stipulation that Jill had to remain there in perpetuity. Jill was upset because with no money given to her, she figured the upkeep and taxes on The Mausoleum would bankrupt her.

Remember, when Jackie wanted to exhume Phillip's body to see if Phillip was his daddy for a DNA test, he was going to have to sue Jill to do it. (JaBottom ended up digging it up .. lol)

The funny thing about R567 is that the two of them becoming "Next Door Buddies" was actually signaled at the very end of an interview that Swickard gave to SOD not long after he joined GH:
[quote] Josh Swickard’s Hollywood journey has been paralleled by his good pal, Michael Mealor, who recently debuted on Y&R as Kyle. “When I was 19, I moved out to L.A. for three months just to sign with reps,” he sets up. “I walked into Wilhelmina to sign a contract with a print agent and I was joking with the booker, like, ‘You know, y’all are lucky you caught me because I was about to join the military’ — I secretly have always wanted to join the military and still do — and this dude behind me with, like, a big, thick Southern accent was like, ‘No way, me, too! But my mama wouldn’t let me!’ I turned around and it was Michael. He is from Atlanta and he was [also new to L.A.] and honestly, ever since then, which was seven or eight years ago, we’ve been best buds.” When Swickard became a spin instructor at SoulCycle, “I made him take my very first class and then two weeks later, he went through the training and became an instructor. Then I booked GH and literally three weeks later, he booked Y&R. I was like, ‘Well, okay, we’ll just keep doing things together!’ The next stage of our life, whatever it is, we’ll hit a fork in the road, hopefully. Either that or we’ll get married at the same time and move into houses next to each other and just keep it going!” ___ SOD May 31, 2018

When JFP was still EP, she informed LW (in 2016) that she would bring her over to Y&R when LW's contract with GH was up in the Fall of 2017 (similarly to how JFP promised to bring her to GH when LW's contract with GL was up in the Fall of 2005). LW was all for it, there was speculation she would've been Nikki's niece (via Casey Reed) or connected to another family, which would've opened the door for a possible relationship with Nikki's son, Dylan, reuniting her with Steve Burton. However, Jill's firing in the Fall of 2016 prevented her from jumping ship, so she stayed at GH (Frank Valentini was all set to bring back Tamara Braun as Carly when he caught wind of her planning to vacate, so that's why Tamara came in as Kim Nero in the Fall of 2017, for he still wanted to bring her on, even though it was no longer as Carly).

R573 Now MM's story of how they met almost exactly aligns with how JS says it lol could it be it's been so long, MM thought they came to LA together? Lol jkjk. It's interesting how they were both born in the same year (1992) on significant days (MM 02/29/92, JS 07/04/92) were models, soap actors....they sound like they were destined to be in each other's orbit, almost like soulmates of some sort 😆 😆

R583 MM also gave two stories of how he got into modeling. In one, he says he was still in high school and walking into the local gym back in his home town with his buddy, and some guy scouted him.. (Oh honey, we've all been there!). .. In another version, he said he was at Auburn University riding a stationary bike, and the guy on the bike next to him asked him if he'd ever considered modeling and invited him to a model showcase in Florida. ( Sounds like a pick-up line... LOL!) .. He even added that at first he thought it was a little creepy, but the guy turned out to be legit.

Y&R is what, 4 or 5 weeks ahead from production to air? I can't wait to see the garbage Griffith puts out. He must have a ton of dirt on Steve Kent.

R580, I believe Slater has been around since 1991?
There’s no way JG can do the job of all of those people. I can’t believe Sony allowed this.

Sally's fire crotch has set Genoa City, and Crimson Lights on fire. Who knew that just a few short years ago, a character who chained a woman to a radiator in Los Angeles would hold hostage so many powerful men with her fruitful womb. Did TGVN also throw a seed in the mix?

[quote]I guess it can be done. Gawd knows YR isn't really working off any long term plans these days, none of the shows really are.
DAYS tried it in 2008. The experiment only lasted for a few months before they hired more writers.

I'm shaking my head at the idea that Josh Griffth --- JOSH GRIFFITH -- is the one still standing after the recent massacres at Y&R.
First Tony Morina is ousted as EP and now the breakdown writers are gone. And Josh Griffith is the one who's still with the show????
Are we in a Bizarro World where everything is backwards? To think that Tony Morina and the breakdown writers were the problem with Y&R is Bizarro thinking.
Steve Kent at Sony has always seemed like a smart guy. Has always made good decisions in the past. Scratching my head on this one, however. Josh Griffith must really have good dirt on him.

I assume Amanda Beall is still going to be part of this "writing team." .. I see she was recently given a Producer's credit as well.

Does Sally dye her crotch that color as well?
