  1. Vivian Gundaker is a good hire for Y and R. I read am article that while she was on ATWT she was the go to person about the history and ,character motivation . Something future writers and producers could have benefitted from!
  2. a SOAP connection, in the early 1970s she played on Love of Life. Her name in those days was Jeanette Dubois.She played Nurse Loretta Allen from 1970 to 1972
  3. I am sorry to hear about his death. He died too young. His first year was good because he had Carolyn Culliton and some holdovers on the staff. Culliton was replaced and the holdovers fired and the show went down fast. i never thought I would stop watching my most favorite show of all time but by cancellation I had just about given up, Thank you Jean,P., Chris P. and Hogan. He DID have great potential at DAYS. Sorry he wasn’t given a real chance there. i don’t think he had any effect on Y and R.
  4. I am reminded when Hogan Sheffer started the quick pace on ATWT. I don't believe Sheffer skipped as many beats as Mal Young is doing. Thankfully that didn't last too long at ATWT. Innovation is good and trying to refresh a genre that is dying is not always good. Remember the shaky camera work and the story telling on Wednesdays they did at GL. Marland's ATWT was the best Soapsuds and the Connor - Lucinda stories were great. I miss Sussman and Alden and I wish they could have been given a longer chance to prove themselves. I wonder how much support they got from Mal
  5. It is not quite there but I fear it will be Y&R by this time,next year. But then again,we may have another EP/HW change by then!
  6. As the World Turns followed by Edge of Night (not listed) and Secret Storm (not listed) and Guiding Light.
  7. I noticed Beth Millstein listed today. She was listed between Sarah Bibel and Matt Clifford. If she is a part of the staff that is a plus for the show. Maybe she can show Mal Young how it's done. She was great on Days as an interim writer before Hogan Sheffer took over.
  8. This show is getting so bad so fast! Surely people can't prefer Mal's version over Sally"s! Plot driven drama works better at nighttime!
  9. Well, it would show as a writer Mal Young has no ideas of his own, no creativity. It would mean Y&R is doomed.
  10. Sally and Kay RETIRED! Do you expect Gina to say that he is ruining the show? Link to Melody and Eileeen's interview please. When did you visit the set? How was it like? Who told you they were happy? New head writers tweak. That is your speculation Jonny.
  11. Jonny, if I may ask, how do you know? You are always saying this producer likes this actor,this cast loves this HW. This network loves this writer. The material coming is going to be great. Are you an insider? Do you work for a soap? Are you related to someone? What are you sources? Give us links to your information? Have you spoken personally with Mal? With someone at SONY or CBS? If it is just your opinion and you don't really know,why not label it as such?
  12. You said it I think eventually Mal is going to get a co HW, or a Story Consultant,or he will go back to solo EP and they will hire a new HW. After the first of the year. (Hopfully!)
  13. I agree with everything you have said.Let me say about the last line I put in bold :totally agree! I used to say the same thing about ATWT before Goutman and Passanante killed the show.
