    I don't really think he wants to use Neil. Well, not as a story lead. I get the feeling he wants to have Devon doing more and have Neil as his supporting. Same thing the show started out doing this year until it got distracted by other story.

    It would have been better if these stakes weren't contrived. But it's just eye roll worthy considering the lack of development for Mariah/Devon and Noah/Tessa. Of course, Devon won't be angry. He and Mariah will remain best pals after it all is said and done. I don't think Noah will be angry either. Everyone will be understanding and embrace them, except possibly, Hilary. But even she's getting better writing so who knows. Agree. Very middle of the road. Cait is a poor actress. But her scenes with CG is the most natural she ever looks on-screen. I suppose the appearance of hurting Noah and Devon plus being scared to give fans a real alternative choice to the pairing the show wants, is the reason why the relationships with their boyfriends are underdeveloped.

    I don't think they're backing off. What I saw Friday was typical romantic soap angst designed to keep the couple apart as they pine and make calf eyes until they give in to their desires. Paraphrase. Tessa: "Timing is wrong. We can't hurt the boys." Long stare Mariah: "Only thing keeping me sane is sparing them pain". Calf eyes Tessa: "Be happy with Devon" desperate hug with hair rub Mariah: "I'll try." Sour face. I don't get why Mariah is "trying" to be happy with Devon when she doesn't want him and she KNOWS he doesn't love her and prefers Hilary. Tessa, I get. She does want Noah. But she's also attracted/loves Mariah. I figure they'll try to stay apart but won't be able to.

    Exactly. Thats my point. The show made a huge deal about Devon not loving her. And also, as you point out, he gets dialogue and just enough scenes with Hilary to let us know that his relationship with Mariah is light on his part. Just something to do. Going nowhere and means nothing. Noah and Tessa aren't much better. They have a little more depth than Devon and Mariah since he does know about all that stuff that happened with Crystal. She did confide in him, where as mariah told Devon nothing. There is no reason why Mariah should stay with Devon instead of breaking it off and pursuing dating other women. From her conversation with Kevin, I took it that this was her first time ever being sexually attracted to a woman. I'd think she'd want to know if it's just this one particular woman or if she might just prefer women in general. Instead they've got her playing the long suffering martyr staying with a man who seemingly doesn't even care for her and she doesn't want. Nonsensical. Also, the only thing that should be standing in their way is Noah. Mariah should he concerned about how he'd take her taking his girlfriend. Yet, Mariah doesn't seem to care how this will hurt Noah or how it'll effect their relationship. The show is playing the wrong beats here. I also was rubbed wrong with how Mariah now treats Tessa. It's almost bullying. Since Mariah chose Noah, without knowing their was another choice at the time, Mariah basically took her friendship away and becamee rude to her. I'm not sure what the show was going for. Also agree that their longing looks, clinging desperation looking hugs, and hair rubbing is old already. Sh!t or get off the pot. And please don't make either woman pregnant to prolong this union.

    Such contrived angst to keep Tessa and Mariah apart. Neither relationship with the guys have any depth because the show didn't build it up. I don't think either (Noah nor Devon) are all that invested In Tessa or Mariah. Story starting not to make sense.

    I can see it. Makes sense.

    Possibly, since it's something they don't see much of nowadays. Lol I guess I'm not understanding what you mean by "writing letters"? What's in it that can't go in an email? You can format the body of an email like a letter. No? I feel like I'm missing something here.

    Re: that letter to the CEO at AT&T. My friend worked executive escalation for HP. Her job was to read all the complaints sent to the CEO and categorize/assist with resolution. You'd have gotten the exact same response had you sent an email. I've sent emails to CEOs as well because I knew her job. Always got a response and prompt resolution. I recently emailed my senator from the great state of Alabama and got a formal response on letter head back as well. My point here is that an email is just as effective. It also allows you to showcase your brilliant writing skills.

    Snail mail is so passe'. They can read Twitter, FB, email, and boards. Expecting to get traditional mail doesn't apply in 2017.

    I don't understand how one day per episode would change the use of sets. How do you see that impacting things?
  11. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    I saw a summary. Only thing that stood out was him wanting things to happen real time. Doesn't like parties lasting 3 days. "if it's Monday then it should be Monday on the show." Wardrobe is up to the task and excited about a bigger budget. My opinion, You can't play proper beats like that. But I guess we will see.

    Didn't Sharon say Alice was fine the other day when talking Tessa and Mariah?
  13. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    JM is struggling with this story. He's seeming more and more ill at ease as days go by. When he was talking to Sharon, his line delivery was just unnatural. He's better than this. Gotta be the story.
  14. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    I was pleasantly surprised. Have you noticed the difference in the writing for Hilary the past 3 or so weeks? She's coming across as a vixen as opposed to some one note mustache twirling cartoon villain she's been for so long. I'm digging it.
  15. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    They've got to care about the character to think that. Nothing that has happened since her coma has made me think they care. Although, I concede, the last 3 weeks or so, she's been written much better. Human.

    The big secret was Brent Davis is Ashley's father. Only a hand full of people knew that. But, what are the consequences to it coming out? There are no stakes. What does anyone lose? Nothing that I see. I figure the story is Abbots fighting...guess who? Yep, you guessed it. Villain Hilary. It's now their turn. Graham's little speech just ruined him. Dina can change her will tomorrow. I think the story has changed multiple times. It seemed to start as one thing but morphed into something else.
  17. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    It was very flat. Graham spoke about revenge on Dina. I haven't being paying that close of attention but what is the revenge? Taking her money? Outing her as an adulteress? Telling the world Ashley is Dina's affair baby? I can't pin point it. That would be classic. But how close are we talking?
  18. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    "All of this is over Brent Davis." I feel the same way, Dina. MA gives a great performance everytime. Shock, disbelief, and a hint of the ridiculous all in one simple line. Best thing about SSMs tenure. Brent is Graham's stepfather instead of father for one simple reason. Graham and Ashley will having hate sex by Feb. Which is just as well since ED and MS have heat! Looking forward to it. However, she will have to carry all their stories cause MS is such a weak actor. JM doesn't have what it takes to play his new role of Adam. Nick is a lame bore. Plus, the words coming out of his mouth ring false. According to him, victor always thought Nick was nothing without his money? Since when? Nick was always Victor's Golden Boy who could do no wrong even when he was crossing him by turning him in to the Feds. He was surely the favored over Adam. I feel gaslit. Plus, I think Nick giving his money away is so the show can play him as struggling and gives his branch of the family some stakes for their chain of Undergrounds. I don't get why they can't be fighting for position and power at Newman Enterprises. And that the scenes happened at Brash and Sassy made them even more a joke. Hilary and Devon are still packing alot of heat. He seemed like a totally different character in those scenes than the one we've seen the past 7 months trying to make fetch happen with Mariah. That was a dinner given by Jack to celebrate with family and close friends. It wasn't the actual award's dinner.
