    Y&R November 2018 Discussion Thread

    Shows really struggle with this group for some reason. They're afraid to ever really do anything with them. A lot of times they just want a teen and figure that viewers will automatically care because it's an off-spring of a popular character, but you have to actually, you know, develop the character ... give them an identity, a purpose, goals ... no one seems to care about developing a character anymore. It's just a warm, botoxed body to fill a spot in the plot (or a recycled soap "vet" that becomes the new pet)

    To be fair, Jack's return has been a very poorly kept "secret" LOL but yeah, they give a lot away.

    I liked the promo too. It's for Day of Days so they're going to give the most action to get a reaction. There seems to be more to Jack's story than just him walking back in, so I've heard, so we'll see how it plays out. But I agree, seemed kind of bad to give it away like that, but I also loved seeing him. He walked in with purpose and almost an attitude and I am *here* for it. "In the flesh" I see a new Jack who's not a cartoon character. And I hope I'm right. Of course, Ron Carlivati brought back Duke and AJ to GH only to kill them a few years later. So ... my expectations are still in check. Although I feel like that was more of a bitter-y thing of him to do. I imagine Frank or Varni wanted them gone and not Carlivati. But who knows? I'd love to know who decided what during their tenure together. I also want to thank Ron for finally making Gabi the bitch she should have been a few years too late and I no longer care about her around Chabby but it needed to happen. It made no sense for Gabi and Abby to be friends.

    Pretty much. Ugh. But it looks better trimmed up. Jack left town in 1993, thanks JER. Returned recast in 1994 (I didn't hate Mark Valley but he was all I knew at the time - I love and adore Matt's version beyond belief though). Recast while in the shower, spent 1997-1998 basically either in jail or on the run. Jack returned in 2001 as a massive joke. Lied he was gay to Greta and she left town with a whimper in 2002. Jack died in 2003 after he was bludgeoned by a brick (was that the organ donation? I can't keep up; or was that 2004-2006?) Jack thought he was terminal in 2006 and left town where he found his presumed dead brother Steve. Maybe the first time two brothers were considered dead but came back to town at the same time? Thanks Hogan. Jack and Jennifer actually got a happy ending in 2006. Thanks Beth Milstein. Jack popped in once or twice after leaving to check on the true real Abby, Ashley Benson, before taking her and leaving in 2007. In 2011 he returned by falling into a cake. Thanks MarDar. But they gave him PTSD and sort of wasted him. Of course, elevator-gate happened in 2012. Thanks Tomlin. I think I'm missing something. Didn't Patrick deliver JJ? Was Jack on Melsawen? Dead again? Lawd. I can't remember. Some of JER's second tenure is a total blur. So, yeah, at least three times I can recall but I felt like there were four ... Was he presumed dead during the Melaswen escape? The castle? I CAN'T REMEMBER!!!! JER absolutely seemed to despise that character. Let's not forget Mark Valley's Jack's roll in the hay with Laura. Lawd. Oh JER. Tomlin also seemed to hate him. Higley claimed she loved JnJ and Bo and Hope and they got some of the most destructive writing during her tenures. It's bizarre how awful Jack has been written. I cannot wait to see Kate Mansi again on-screen Abby with a [!@#$%^&*] pulse! And LMAO at Nicole returning to cry and die (I think she "croaked" last month; but I wasn't watching, actually). Nicole has fallen so far as a character. But ....

    PREACH. I've never been a fan of Sam for many reasons. Talk about one of the most useless characters ever. LOL Me too. Pretty much all of this Yesss ... lol Everyone's saying all I've thought for years and years. I sort of like Kelly but Sam is just so pointless and useless and has always felt like a placeholder.

    Lawd. Sarah's going to be totally wasted. I see Serena all over again. YASSS Julie. Slap that bitch! I know how this ends up too .... seems they're also actually celebrating/acknowledging her time on the show. Can we just kill Rope, please? Isn't Chrishell Stause still due to come back in 2029? And are they pairing Kristian and Gilles Marini? REAL ABBY!!! I'm so happy JACK My god, he just walks back in? LOL

    I feel like she might be. And yeah, Jack's sticking around.

    Oh agreed. I noticed that when she was first cast way back in the day. But her version of the character was far more interesting to me. MM fits better in a lot of ways but Mansi was memorable, even if some didn't prefer her. IDK, it feels a lot like Guy Wilson and Chandler Massey (in some ways).

    I loved "sweet little Abigail Deveraux" (NOT! lol) sexing it up with EJ in the shower. The conclusion to all of that was so blah. It had a lot of potential. I also sort of liked her trying to mount Grandpa Austin back in 2011/2012 (whenever it was). Hmm. Unspoken Daddy Issues maybe? lol Dead at the last sentence. So true. I think I really took to Mansi as well during the Ben stuff and when she turned crazy for a hot minute. I've always liked her but she really started to come into her own, IMO. (Although a blah at times actress, I don't think the writing ever gave Miller's Abby that much of a chance to truly shine and come into her own, it felt very place-holdery to me). Miller showed me at times she can be a little fiery but overall she played Abigail constantly doped up (which would have actually made sense if it played out that way on-screen), or it's just Miller's laidback, understated, quiet persona. I think she seems like a cool and great person, I just really loved Mansi's Abby and Miller's just was so ... blah and victim to that AWFUL Stefan plot. Mansi would have sold the HELL out of it, but it still would have sucked. I actually couldn't see Mansi's Abby doing a lot of things Marci's Abby did. Neither's truly "bad" I guess, just very different (IMO).

    We're almost always on the same wavelength. LOL +1

    Yeah, I looked at it as a nice gesture to get Kate back, especially with Matt coming back as Jack. But I can see why many preferred Miller. I don't think it's permanent. I wish it were. But I also think maybe it's time for a break from Chad and Abby. Not an 8 year break (hyperbole; I think it was more like 7 ...) like Shawn and Belle, but a break isn't the worst thing. I think more characters should exit every so often for a year or so and get refreshed.

    Understandable. But she had great chemistry with them. I'm very excited. I'm sorry for those who preferred Miller, but hey, at least she chose to leave on her own and I don't think Mansi's sticking around, but I still don't know how long she's here for. I will say Miller looked more like Missy and Matt's daughter. I just wasn't thrilled with her acting choices sometimes and the writing for Abby. After Mansi, Miller felt miscast to me. But if I didn't know Mansi in the role, I probably would feel slightly different. I like both for different reasons but I vastly prefer Mansi. And to be fair, actors usually start to gel and improve in the role as they're about to leave. I was actually starting to get really used to her when we heard she was leaving so I imagine after a few years ... but so many associate and prefer Mansi in the role. They're just very different actresses.

    Guess I'll be watching again November 29th. Ew. I feel the total opposite. LOL. But I don't hate Miller. She just needed more life and energy to her. Blah. I'll take scenery chewer anyday after watching paint dry for two years. (LOL, but seriously, I saw some potential in Marci Miller but Mansi was my preference. I can see why you liked her as Abby though)
