I was having a discussion with someone on Twitter about these 2 and hoping to get the opinion of someone who watches both shows and can be objective (even if you don't watch both, feel free to weigh in).
This guy was arguing that JFP is doing everything in her power to make SB work on YR and even going so far as to give him a mother who's been on the show for 30 years (won't say the name because I'm not sure where the story is). He claims SBu has chemistry with no one, and I countered with, many on my TL want Dylan with Chelsea and the child.
But, this guy sings the praises of FrankenRon morning, noon and night and I asked him how was doing everything in their power to make Roger/FrankenTodd work any different? Of course, I love his scenes with LW, but in all honesty, this character has not worked the 2nd time around. He came on and was supposed to be so hilarious with a do that was absolutely heinous and the audience shoved back really hard. They have DVDs showing that FrankenTodd didn't do any of the things he did, but that didn't work so he has a tumor to explain why he did all of the horrible things he did (yes, it's as jacked up as is sounds). Outside of his pairing with LW (I'd still take CarnAj), GH is not hurting for Roger Howarth no matter what they call him, and the audience doesn't seem to really care.
So I have to ask, what is the difference in what JFP is doing with Dylan and FrankenTodd/Craptini?
