Wait? So you'd want Chuckie to be pudgy?! Not a hot, sexy stud like William Espy Gray or David Hasselhoff were back in the day?!
Well I was just making a suggestion that it would've made more sense for Stitch to be Chuckie as he'd already be tied to the canvas and there would be no need for a crappy backstory, which the character got.
And Jess Walton/Jill being tossed aside like yesterday's trash is one of the many primary reasons why Y&R is sh-t now. Jill is one of the two characters that laid the foundation that is Y&R. Not Victor. Not Nikki. Not Jack. They are pillars that hold up the building but everything starts the foundation, who happened to be Kay and still should be Jill.
Jill could've had tons of stories over the past few years that were missed opportunities. Another big one was the Jill/Hilary rivalry. Mishael Morgan and Jess Walton had stellar chemistry. Had there been a capable writer, they would've made Hilary the modern Jill and molded Jill into being the new Katherine, thus setting up a new longstanding rivalry. Now both characters are floating in the wind and aren't getting anything good.
I like him but the writing for him is pure sh-t. It has been since they dug into his backstory. It never made sense to me b/c they had just done the same exact story with Tyler and Leslie the previous year. I thought his secret, which was teased for the longest, was gonna be something interesting and scandalous like him committing treason while in the army or having killed Kelly's son in a drunken stupor or some sh-t. Instead, it was revealed he was her brother and he supposedly killed their abusive daddy.
I still feel that they should've made him Jill's nephew and Snapper's son, Chucky, who's nickname was Stitch. He would've been a doctor like Snapper was. It would've given Jill more to do especially when Stitch got involved with Vic. She would've been conflicted between her son and nephew--both who love the same woman. But no! These dumbasses were adamant we needed yet another new family, which flopped.
Out of that whole list, the only thing I like is that Adam/Abby are on the same side of matters, which should've been played from the start. But Maria is to blame for that.... But I think I can speak for all the fans that we are over Victor and Nikki being at odds. Those two should NEVER split up again unless death is involved. It's tired and old.
No one cares about Paprika and Nick. Or Dr. Anderson. Or that damn baby. Sharon is once again sucked into a vortex of suck involving Nick and his woman of the week.
I am over Billy v. the Newmans. It's not convincing when Billy is strapped to Snorboria, who stays delivering a self-righteous riot act when he screws up. I truly wish they'd retire the character.
Marco has potential to be a good character but I am sure it'll be squandered once his family comes on.
Traci coming back is not enough to save Genoa City or this show. They'll play nice for the holidays but no character development will be pushed forward post the holidays.
Sad part is that Jill could've struck gold again at Y&R had she not rallied for Pratt to join her at Y&R instead of the position going to Alden or Sussman-Morina. It'll be just another dud on Jill's resume....
