I think it's because the actress is so glaringly awful, it FEELS like she's on-screen more than she actually is.

You're correct. She's appeared in every February episode so far, sadly.

JT in my opinion - I didn't know anything of him but apparently he was loved on GH - but he's just not Billy.  I have noticed they really haven't had Victor really interacting much with him (although I'm glad Victor has been off burner - it's been needed for years)....but if he were really riding Billy with this actor - I just don't see it.  Abby is horrible....I only started peeking in back when Marcy Rylan took on the role because I had been a Guiding Light fan and I thought she was a hoot as Lizzie on GL.  From what I saw she was pretty good as Abby.  This one is just blah. 

 

Billy has a lack of chemistry with every girl he's kind of been paired up with on Y&R.  I didn't see much a spark with Phyllis either.  Everything on this show is just in a holding pattern.

 

I get the need for slowing things down and character repair, but to me, there's damage still going on.  At this point, if Paul were killed off - I wouldn't care.  They've written him into a crotchety bore.  His scenes at times make zero sense....I don't feel any sympathy at all for him re: Dylan.  And then his scenes with Sharon - pretty much heartless. 

 

Y&R back in the day moved slowly...really took a long time to build up....but SOME things happened week to week.  Stories DID move here and there.  It's just a snoozefest right now.  Honestly.....I can't even name one real STORY that actually IS going on right now.  Dylan and the sting operation?  That was short lived and now done.  Reed the troubled male teen?  Feh.  Billtoria angst?  Something with Fenmores.  Gloria busybody?  GC Buzz?   Faith at Sharon's, Faith at Nick's, Faith at Victor/Nikki's?  I mean, there's nothing going on here.

Why is Lily (a woman) modeling for the men's line for B&S, instead of having a male character modeling for the men's line like Billy or Cane? IRL, cosmetics companies hire male models for their men's line of fragrances!

Billy had a long soliloquy to lily about this in a speech designed to be sexy and to show him as competent. From that I gather it's cause they are marketing to men who need the confidence to approach "an exotic creature" like her.

Have Billy and Lilly talked about their one nite stand? Did you know that Dan Goddard is one of the richest actors in daytime?

Ive always thought that AH just didnt Victoria..and i always thought it was just the writinf.  Now that the writing has improved, she still isnt right for the part...and today during the photo shoot...I realized why.

 

AH comes across so awkward and insecure...even when the writing calls for Victoria to act like herself.  Victoria was always confident, snooty and sure of herself....even if the audience knew that what she was confident about would blow up in her face.  AH cant play those emotions...no matter how much the writing calls for it.  Thats why her character on AMC..Mia started off as a confident con artist..but quickly changed to an indecisive and clingy.  Shed be perfect as Katie on Bold.

Perfect time for them to switch!

 

She's a terrible actress and looks like she's on drugs. I'm tired of looking at her.

I actually feel AH being terrible is the one thing we all can agree on LOL.  I say that because I have dreams about me and her having a three way with Josh Morrow.  I think she is DIVINE.  A Goddess.  I truly feel that RS and EF should be on as her sisters and I wish CONSTANCE FORD were alive because she was just as divine as the others.

Cane is horrible.

I just wanted to slap him today with all of that whining over Brash and Sassy.  It's business. No one cares how much it means to you to own it, if you do not have the funding. :rolleyes: Ugh!

 

Ashley was good today. I'm glad to see her taking change and telling Jack how it's going to be.

You won't get much disagreement from most on here about her. Her lack of ability shows. It has for a long time. She's not Victoria. Even watching Heather Tom in opening credits from 1999 STILL tell me THAT is Victoria Newman.

 

I've always said Tom and Heinle should have switched spots a long time ago.
