  1. Y&R does need to recast Kyle soon...he wouldn't be a terrible option
  2. The writing for Hilary and Phyllis is so damn atrocious right now. Yet another Newman is about to be yelling in Hilary's face. At least Phyllis got a break from the writing since Gina went on vacation but good God. Hilary is basically some silly mustache twirling villainess just hiding in corners to record people's conversations and then put it on the air to get yelled at for it the next day. Also it can't be said enough, the actor playing Ben needs to go. And I'm sick of everyone on this show being broke. It is dumb nonsense that Victoria got $500 million in the bank and is running around begging for a loan like a poor person to save that stupid company that only has two employees and shouldn't be squatting in Ashley's lab in the first place.
  3. Here you go...just sign up here and you'll start getting their surveys. They send them about every 3 months or so (the last one was the Jason Thompson one) https://www.studioinsiders.com/Portal/default.aspx Also some more questions that were asked
  4. Yeah that question was weird. My answer was hell no. Sure. I told them I enjoyed Hilary, Devon, Phyllis, Lauren, Michael, Jill, Dina, Ashley, Sharon, Jack, and Mariah but I did expand quite a bit on the issues that I have with the writing for those characters. I actually felt that the survey asked a lot of good questions and there was a lot of opportunity to elaborate and really explain why you answered the way you did which I appreciated. I suspect the primary purpose of the survey was to get people's opinions on Tessa and Mariah (even though they were not a part of the couples section for whatever reason - Kevin/Mariah and Noah/Tessa were). These were the couples they asked about.. Sharon/ScottSharon/NickPhyllis/NickMariah/KevinKevin/ChloeNoah/TessaLily/CaneHilary/DevonChelsea/NickJack/NikkiRavi/AshleyVictoria/BillyPhyllis/BillyPhyllis/JackGloria/JackLauren/Michael Reed/Mattie The characters that weren't mentioned at all? Dina, Graham, Juliet, Zach, Crystal, and Charlie. Poor Neil, he did not have one "couple" option smh. They asked a question about the sets (I politely told them to burn The Underground, to give Ashley her lab back and get rid of Brash & Sassy, that I didn't want to see GC Buzz again and that it makes no sense that only one office exists in Newman and Jabot) They also asked if I felt the show was too diverse (wtf), if I wanted to see a LGBT story, if I want to see stories about religion or if I was religious, if I missed Kevin, if I liked when older characters returned to the show, if i have watched/more or less recently and why, whats my favorite character/couple/story and why
  5. I got it. It was very very long. Really detailed survey. I was not kind about a lot of characters or stories. It gave you a long list of the characters and asked if they added to your enjoyment, detracted from your enjoyment or had no affect on your enjoyment. It had a longgggg list of couples and asked how you felt about them (it was interesting that some people like Phyllis, Jack and Nick had multiple pairing options where Victoria and Chelsea only had one) It asked a lot of questions about whether you want to see more religious stories or religion more on the show Asked a very generic question about LGBTQ and if that was a story you wanted to say (other options were police drama/big families, and something else) They asked if you wanted to see more supernatural stories, what age group you enjoyed watching the most, what character you would most like to see return, what couples you want to see together, etc. If I can think of anything else I will add. Someone posted some of their questions on Twitter (the pics below are NOT my answers, they are someone else's that was posted on Twitter but they let you know some of the things asked)
  6. They're really going to pretend like Ashley having sex with him makes a lick of damn sense? Really?
  7. The director Kai Kim said on Twitter they taped the 9/25 show yesterday. That means that they start taping Mal's material either the end of next week or early in the week after.
  8. I don't understand why this is happening. It's so damn silly. I refuse to believe they can't cast a suitable man for Eileen or just PUT HER WITH NEIL and actually INVEST IN THEM. Also, if they don't free Phyllis from all things Victoria and Billy. It is much easier to FF them when they don't infect others I like.
  9. Thank you. It looks disgusting. Liked the Dina/Jack/Gloria/Nikki/Ashley stuff today I don't have anything nice to say about the rest of it.
  10. It is really a damn shame that I don't find a single man on this show appealing. Mal certainly has his work cut out for him. Good luck.
  11. So Victoria has a second personality that is just as dry and awkward as her normal one? PLEASE end this sex trafficking story. It's centered on newbies (Zack, Tessa, Crystal) and it makes no sense. They can't do it justice, they need to end it before October 1st. Tweak these scripts and wrap it up fast. I also wouldn't be surprised if the show just had Juliet have a miscarriage offscreen and sent her away or had her go crazy in a week and that was it for that story. *saying a silent prayer that come October 1 both Brash & Sassy and GC Buzz will be no more*
  12. If Tessa and Mariah was the plan all along, what was the point of breaking up Hevon for Devon/Mariah?
  13. Also, I don't think Sally is a hack. I think she's a boring writer and a mediocre talent. She got a lot of credit for who she worked for rather than her own output. I'm really annoyed that Kay is tied to this because I still have a lot of respect for her. What did she do exactly? Cause Sally very clearly made it seem like all of the ideas and stories were hers. Did Kay contribute at all I wonder?
  14. No worries, all good. I think the conversation about labels as it pertains to sexuality is still a little gray, there's arguments for and against but labels help people identify a community and common individuals which is super important for groups who are still discriminated against. At this point I really hope that Angelica is going to give Mal his shot or whatever (I have zero confidence he can do both jobs) but she's also ACTIVELY looking for a real headwriter and I mean getting people to submit longterm story plans for characters, doing interviews, etc. I have a hard time believing that it's that hard to find a HW honestly.
  15. I'll just post these links and then get back on topic http://affinitymagazine.us/2016/07/25/i-dont-see-color-is-crap-and-you-know-it/ http://www.nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/opinion-dear-tomi-lahren-please-stop-saying-you-dont-see-n690801 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/roni-faida/why-i-hate-the-phrase-i-d_b_9341762.html https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jan/26/do-not-see-race-ignoring-racism-not-helping https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/minority-report/201602/i-dont-see-color I do think the conversation about labeling sexuality is still a bit influx but the principle isn't much different. So anyway, Mal has his work cut out for him.
  16. I don't want to start posting articles, but yeah it is. Are you black? How are you going to try to explain to a black person why we find comments like "I don't see race or color" problematic? Let's not get into this here....
  17. The "I don't see gender" or "I don't see race" attitude is not helpful nor progressive. Love is love sure, but marginalized identities and communities need to be seen for who they are? Erasing the fact that people or black or how they might identify is erasing who they are. When people say they don't see race it means they want white people to be comfortable. Just like saying well we don't want to call them gay or lesbian or even bisexual or sexually fluid they think makes heterosexuals or homophobes more comfortable. It's an attempt to completely erase what it means to be a bisexual or lesbian or sexually fluid woman.
  18. I hope also Jordan, the Lane twins, Graham, Zach....buh bye.
  19. All of this. And perhaps we're harder on Sally because this board specifically caught a big attitude if you dared to criticize Sally or her Y&R. I was specifically told after I said the show was boring and aimless that "I must not be familiar with classic Y&R" and "I need to go back and watch Bill Bell". Ok. And it also sucks that she's left a bit of a mess. Some stories have potential like Tessa/Mariah and maybe he can save the Dina stuff but the rest? All these useless new characters along with horrible stories like the sex trafficking nonsense centered on three newbies (Tessa, Zack, Crystal), SMH
  20. I'd really like to hear from Kay Alden now. What exactly did she do? Did she contribute at all? Because Sally is basically saying everything was ALL her.
  21. And honestly A LOT of the blame needs to go to Angelica and Sony cause it was obvious they didn't care either. Did they even ask her what her plan was? Or talk to her at all about her thoughts on the show? Or just offered her a job that her heart wasn't even in? I still don't understand why she took it but a lot of this falls on CBS and Sony just saying whatever, we just need a HW, let's just offer it to someone. They don't care about saving this show or even keeping it afloat. Sally basically said "I was really unprepared for a job I didn't really want to do." Ok.
  22. What is the deflection? The excuses people make for Sally are hilarious. The show had 16 weeks or something of record low demos under Sally who could not have cared less...you know what nevermind. You love Sally, it's cool.
  23. 1. It's 2017 so saying that you "don't want people to see color" or "don't want people to see gender" is problematic. 2. Not only did she have no plan for the characters, she didn't watch the last 10 years of the show. Who thought it was a good idea to hire her? 3. She just made up everything she said in her interview to Logan? Why not just decline or postpone it? What? 4. She made it pretty obvious she had no intention of staying in the job long. She wasn't committed to it. It's awful that her brother died, but her commitment was gone. 5. The entire thing about Greg was nonsense, SHE was the one who wrote Kevin and Chloe's reunion so what is she talking about? He wasn't too involved with Chloe at the time SSM took over. They were finished. She reunited them. 6. It was CLEAR very early on that Sally cared more about that doc than she did about figuring out how to make Y&R better and she made that pretty clear in that interview. 7. A LOT of people here tried to blame a lot of the poor ideas on network interference and Mal Young...it's clear that Sally's failures were hers. She took a job just to take it. Her heart wasn't in it, she didn't care, she didn't think she'd stay long, she had nothing planned, she bs'd interviews and made stuff up as she went along for a show she hadn't watched in a decade. Just no.
  24. I mean, that's horrible, but then she needed to DECLINE THE INTERVIEW or postpone. Why the hell would she just "make up a bunch of stuff?" Also, she made it clear that she didn't even think she'd stay in the job more than 6 months. What a mess. Like why was she even hired? This was all so stupid.
