    Goodness that is gorgeous and I bet it goes fast, if I lived in NY and ya know, had money I'd consider that a nice respite from city life.

    This is hilarious because it's literally a story Ron would never have done...but Jamey was so upset that Ron was let go...I mean, do you hear yourself?

    That magical time when a black woman was on enough to be hated and loved by the audience in equal measure. What a time to be alive.

    Yes but are these two any better? I mean will they elevate the show or simply not be as terrible? Mediocrity seems to be the go-to for daytime drama.

    How can anyone be excited about this?

    I wonder, when they hire and re-hire these soap writers, do they present a bible? Or story ideas? Or are they simply known entities that will get the product out on time and under budget? The last time I felt like a new headwriter was brought on with some semblance of creativity was Carlivati to OLTL. Now they just seem like worker bees, doing their jobs just well enough until ABC finds an inexpensive working alternative to GH.

    I guess someone's going to have to update their twitter bio.

    Yeah, that's what I meant, I should have said "new". There's no better usage of that old idiom "shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic" than the soap genre.

    A new headwriter, an old headwriter, a resurrected Bill Bell and Irna Phillip, Agnes Nixon in her prime, none of these things would fix what GH and daytime has become. The business is broken. The model, the structure, the production, it's a mess.

    It's been a solid decade of throwing new producers or writers at these shows and none of it has worked. They're trying to work too fast and too loose to keep costs down and turn out high. All they have the actors do is spit out lines and move on. There's no character or world-building going on here. They're just trying to keep their heads above water and stay somewhat comfortable in a genre they've murdered.

    Nothing lasts forever.

    Most of their scenes on OLTL? What are we talking about here?

    L M A O What is this???

    Why do some of these actors get one good soap role and then soap hop the rest of their careers? Or do projects like this, low budget "soap operas"? This can't possibly be lucrative.

    Never for the hate for Martha Madison, she was as basic and boring as her onscreen mother (let's be real Marlena is all about the things that happen to her, there is not a single thing compelling about that character).

    It's kind of strange that they want to age up Shawn and Belle, even if the SORAS isn't that bad. Let's just hope they don't do a teen pregnancy story with this one.

    Gloria is partly why I stopped watching Y&R. I did NOT understand why she was on EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    How about stories where the kids had an actual personality and weren't basically human MacGuffins? I can't think of many beyond Lucky, Robin and Emily on GH (GH hit the jackpot with good child actors...in the 90s).

    I know as a kid I liked Jessica on OLTL a lot but I don't know if that was due to familiarity of me liking something about her.

    True. I bet this is why every new writer gets their pet character knocked up as soon as possible. See Chelsea on Y&R and Sage...on Y&R.
