GH starting to slip. Is Ron on his way back?? Brad Bell needs to return to the studio stat. Days: how can the producers even show their faces at the studio. What an embarrassment this show has become. YR: We're definitely in the Pratt cleanup transition phase over the next few months.
The Cassadine Island tale is just plain awful in every respect. Wouldn't have worked with Tyler in the role either. Maybe that's why he quit. He couldn't play more cartoon crap. Kristina's plot would be so much more compelling if they hadn't gone with the icky older professor angle. Stupid move. And they've set up her relationship with Aaron as storybook so they're pitting this practically pedophile Ivanka Trump like teacher against the new Blacky, muscled stud with a heart. Terrible. The Scott/Lucy/Hayden's mom stuff was horrendously bad. In fact this week was Jelly's worst since they started penning the stories. I'm wondering if these episodes were crafted after a meeting with ABC where they said: you have 13 weeks to raise the ratings or you're out. LOL. So many of this summer's episodes feel desperate for cheap thrills after some moments (yes boring) where they seemed to be going more for a Knots Landing feel than a Dynasty/Passions feel. They're back to Carlivati's cartoon....With O'Conner back on writing staff. I'm wondering if Carlivati is a story consultant.
If Pratt were still with YR he wouldn't have removed his EP/HW title from his facebook profile. bye bye....Now who is headwriting this show? I hope all of FOJ staff is put out to pasture...Not one of them added a thing to the show. Renfroe's directing was meh. Thomson/Conforti; meh; Burton: awful/ill conceived. cut him loose.
Looks like Milstein is out at YR after one year. She joined July 2015. She just removed writer/days from her work profile on FB. Sony is handing out pink slips!
Nick Stabile cannot act. And that mousy voice. On the other hand the replacement for Maxie is so much better than Storms and I hated her on Days. Molly's presence actually helped Ryan's dubious acting. And Bree is stupendous. But they shouldn't turn her into crazy Nina. The show is total camp but done much better than when Carlivati was going off the rails. The Cassadine stuff is stupid but fun. The Spencer/Laura stuff is really stupid and should've been left on the cutting room floor. Bad bad bad.
Get rid of Billy Miller, put Jason to rest and spread that money around to others on the canvas/up their episodes. Get rid of Julian..I'm sorry. The character has been ruined and they are ruining Alexis with this relationship. I like DeVry but the character has completed his run. Give Jon Lindstrom a contract. I think they have a winning three way with the Kiki/Dylan/Morgan...increase their appearances.
Is Chuck Pratt out at YR? He's removed YR/ep title from his Facebook work profile!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Toups: In May: tyler topits wrote one of two episodes you have listed for Richard Culltion. And in April one of Ford's scripts was incorrectly listed as written by Salmon..Jason47 confirmed both on facebook in recent months...
Great news. She's been an utter failure on Y&R as has Marni Saitta on Days. Now get rid of Owen Renfroe, JFP pet director and give Sally MacDonald those 8 episodes a month. Dump Luca and Summer. Burn down Chancellor and have Jill restore/rebuild. End Phil/Billy and dump Steve Burton. Oh, I'm on roll. Get a writer who can pen an umbrella story for Adam. Put Chelsea in a love triangle with Billy/Adam. Send the Newman family on a one way cruise for a year and bring back Heather Tom as Vickie and Melody as Nikki. Nick/victor...bye bye. Done//tired/overused. No more story. Blow up the coffee house. Dump Caine and Lily. Put Jill back at the mansion. Recast Mac and Philip's son and have them move in with Jill. Replace overrated Mandy Beall on scripts. Bring in Curlee/Demorest as head writers. Keep Conforit/Dunn/Slater/Gold as breakdown writers. Bring in Lyndsey Harrison who freelance wrote several spot on scripts and Marin Gazzaniga from reboot OLTL who wrote some stellar scripts there as well. Let's face it: this show is [!@#$%^&*] right now and needs major revisions.
GH is uneven but they are trying and I give them credit. Putting Laura and Kevin together is fun and has potential. The hospital drama is dumb so far but they put Monica in charge and I like Dr. Mays. They need to get rid of Perry Shen, the actress playing Liesel. She's still too over the top and not in a good way. I actually liked Dillon and Kiki for the first time ever. They actually do have chemistry and she's improved. I think they need to make her a bit darker, goth. I liked the dark circles under eyes. She's Ava's daughter; she needs to be layered. Dillon is the goffy do goody... Still can't stand Emmy Rylan as Lulu although I like the actress. I say bring back Jeff Webber and Sarah Webber (Michael Knight and Ally Sweeney) and get a big hospital story going.
No way. Everyone on days has lost their moral compass. Hope, Rafe, Aiden, Abby, Chase, Joey and the list goes on. Now he's repeating the Nick in the river plot with Kate/Deimos. This period on days is Griffith's worst stint as head writer of any soap he's done. It's beyond dark, depressing, completely unwatchable except for the Jenn and Hope special episodes which were brilliantly scripted by departed writer, Salmons. It's true that GH has had their share of criminals as main characters, but Jelly has made an attempt to bring to the fore characters with a moral compass. They do need to get rid of Julian and retire Alex as a character. She's ruined and his character is bizarre. We're supposed to root for him now that he's stabbed Carlos. GH is still too focused on horrid criminals but it's better than under Guza and Carlivati.
12,000 more viewers tuned in to torture themselves with Days of Our Lives? Wow. This show has never been lower in quality. The stories get more awful by the day. Characters are pointless. So sad. I give Pratt through the end two year cycle before he goes in Nov. Which means we'd have to sit through this crap until Jan. But he could go sooner. GH is actually the only watchable show right now of the three hour long shows.
