    Having studied under and written under Bell Reilly would have much better fit for Y&R than any writer since 2006 and been more true to Bell than anything. Through in some good acting and directing we would probably have had an entertaining gothic soap with some sense of traditional Y&R thrown in.

    Just of our curiosity after asking in this in a thread I did about Days but what made you start watching GL and what made you stop? 
     
    For myself it was the intriguing Sonni/Solita caper and although I use to be ashamed to admit it but the Josh/Reva saga also suckered me in. So did Ed and Maureen, and Vanessa's hopeless relationship with Alan with a complete class act exit before coming back with Billy.  Alan and Alex were just so fascinating at that time they made great foils to the rest of Springfield. 
     
    What made me quit in the late summer/early fall of 2008 was the fact I was tired of Peapack. The show also felt like it had no overall narrative whatsoever and felt like scenes happened spontaneously or were improved. There was a nice little story someone making a movie on Reva's life and we had Josh and Reva going down memory lane complete with 1989 flashbacks, but that was about it. I had already reduced my watching since the year before with the Coopers being constantly shoved down our throats and Dylan/Harley affair, but Peapack fatigue, Reva's post-menopause pregnancy, and that idiotic character that was what, Z, G, or V otherwise known as Grady finally did it in for me.

    Y&R September Spoilers
    Just saw these gloomy previews(sadistic Neil, Ashley in peril) already up at Soapdom, the usual colorful wording and all. They need to do better:

    The moment this list included Conboy and Weston's insipid nightmare that was the Garden of Eden murders was the moment you have to discredit the entire list.

    Actually the Devon/Hilary story which should be more interesting just left a very insipid tasted in my mouth. It reminds me too much of Sharon and Skye in the volcano.

    Actually one rumor I saw sounds to be far worse; Sharon ends up sleeping with Adam and gets pregnant and ends up using that pregnancy to cover up her miscarriage. 
     
    This is some [!@#$%^&*] that would simply make Pratt far worse than either the MAB/Sheffer/Hamner/Rauch era or Latham.

    You know things are very very bad on Y&R when we have Victor calling out Paul for nepotism yet during the MAB tenure Adam use to make it a point on the fact he got an MBA from Harvard yet neither Nick or Victoria went to college...

    Had SoapCity achieved its full potential and fruition it would probably still be its own network.  
     
    I use to catch Days and Y&R on SoapNet regularly. If I recall right, they were the two most watched programs on the network.

    The key word is a "return trip". I know Wagner did Santa Barbara and other soaps but never did Days so this isn't him.
     
    My guesses are going to be Matt Ashford, Billy Warlock, or maybe Austin Peck?

    I guess "bloodthirsty Neil" is finally coming pass like crazy Avery did...

    Three characters that I'm surprised haven't come back yet: 
    -J.T. It took me a long time to grow on J.T. but the sexy bad boy definitely won me over as he transformed into Paul Williams 2.0. I actually liked him and Victoria together, even if the story-line had become muddled in 2009. J.T. and Mac were boring as hell both rounds, and I'm surprised we haven't had him drop back into town. Then again, doesn't he still have full custody of Reed? I guess that would unfortunately put him on Victor's hit list for the next doppelganger... 
     
    -Nathan Hastings. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised at all, but it would have been nice if he had been Leslie's secret new husband. if he and cousin Devon were the ones fighting over Hilary and Leslie with a exasperated Neil trying to act as a good patriarch. 
     
    -Cole Howard. Why in all of Victor's schemes to break up Billy and Victoria he never brought back Cole is beyond me.

    I remember back in 2004 SoapNet aired a good two weeks worth of classic Days eps in its place, too bad that type of service isn't still around.

    Next we'll get to see Esther is when Pratt finally plays the psychotic baby-wielding Chloe card, probably portrayed by Natalia Livingston.
