  1. Y&R December 2017 Discussion Thread

    We recently had a conversation about him being Mal's self insertion. He's either what Mal sees himself as or what Mal wants to be. I've always said that DH and Scott would be better served in story with his family playing out abandonment issues instead of as this desirable stud that two beautiful women are fighting over. I don't buy that either Sharon or Abby would want Scott. I just don't. That may be in part because I don't want Scott and I can't imagine a world where anyone would.

    @DramatistDreamer I was merely touching on the complaints of Mariah not telling Sharon and answering the question as the why she and this arc are in this story. The problem of Scott is entirely different discussion. One we've had here a few times before.

    And I agree...I'm over Mariah being constantly centered in others stories to give her something to do while the persons who should be centered are pushed to the side. This story would be far more entertaining had Sharon found out, confronted Scott, him lie while Sharon set a trap to catch them. *sigh* I'll never forget her in that matching lingerie needling Nick when she found out about his affair with Phyllis. That was good soap. +1 I thought Jess originally left because the show made it clear that she wouldn't be written for. She should now either come back full time or just fully retire. Her coming in and out doesn't work for me. I don't understand why Traci isn't around on a regular basis. It's not like BM doesn't want to work. But I guess TPTB thinks Mamie and Olivia are too big reminders of Drucilla and they can't have that. I would say that Nina won't return until one of her son's return. But then I think about how Scott hasn't brought any story to Lauren. So probably not. Exactly how I remember it.

    Mariah not telling Sharon accomplishes two things: 1. It gives Mariah story to drive. They clearly want her on doing something. 2. It allows TPTB to stretch this story out until after MOs maternity leave.

    I was thinking my memory was faulty when I saw them being so friendly. I don't ever remember them sharing scenes when JT was around before.

    He seems to be rushing to a point to tell a particular story arc for some characters.
  7. Y&R December 2017 Discussion Thread

    Supposedly he had a 6 month story projection for every character. Is that so? I see none of that for some characters. He's already expended 2 months and I remain unimpressed.

    To be vulnerable is to be human and relatable. Without that element, how can she possibly be likable? Smart, driven, confident without anything else is a mean bitch. I've had enough of that Hilary. Especially since we know that current writers cannot pen that kind of woman well. I'm hoping for other types of stories with her. A backstory, perhaps. Not only is it missing cohesion, its missing direction. I wonder the point of most scenes.

    I think Mal is trying to find one that resonates to stick.
  10. Y&R December 2017 Discussion Thread

    I fully expect it.

    I could have enjoyed Sharon and Scott far more if they didn't play the same scene over and over with no resolution. "You're avoiding me." "No I'm not". This would have gone over better had Scott actually been avoiding her instead of standing right there so obviously not avoiding her. Same with Hilary and Jack. Every segment in this episode plus the ones they've had the last couple of days have the same dialogue. "you're good now Hilary. I'm proud of you. See, audience, like Hilary again. She's human." "You're a good man jack for taking care of your mom. But audience, don't forget, he's struggling to find balance".

    JM plays everything Nick does like it's all fun and games. I can't take Nick seriously.

    @KMan101 I think CBS/Sony wants to save MCE for an Adam return but MY seems to have no interest in that character or story.
  14. Y&R December 2017 Discussion Thread

    Very forced. Seems they went in a different direction once he was cast. Chelsea serves no purpose. Just let MCE go.

    DH alone is a problem. But MO is still just so grating. She borders on shrill. Too bad cause I do love her as a person. I still say that Scott should have been paired with Mariah. I thought sure he was headed for GC Buzz and her. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it would have worked either. But I don't know why they took a turn to Abby and I refuse to believe they cast a writer/journalist to work at Newman. It's senseless. Scott is a bore but he's largely been wasted as Abby's 4th failed pairing in as many years. There is nothing else for Chelsea to do. So it's going to be a long while.
