Third time's the charm and Jess Walton is THE BEST Jill Foster Abbott. This Two time Emmy-winning actress(Lead&Supporting), have taken the character of Jill and made her so multi-layered. Her character may come of as a tough biatch, but underneath it all she is just one big softie. And Jess Walton portrays this to perfection. Congrats to Jess for playing the always entertaing Jill Foster Abbott, for 18 years(since June 1987), and still doing a magnificent job. A character which has been on the show since day 1. B) B)

OH MY GOD, I SWEAR TO THE ALMIGHTY i was going to start this thread tonight! Haha!

Jess is amazing!!!! My favorite Y&Rer after Kimberlin! In fact, i want Jill to turn out to be Sheila's sister so these guys can finally team up and get their Emmys!

Jess as a person is SO sweet and delicious, all her interviews she is genuinely inspiring and interesting.

Jess gets into Jill's skin so well, its hard to imagine what she's like in real life. Their personalities are so different. Remember when Jill was a [email protected]#$%^&*]? There were those clips posted a while back of Jill [email protected]#$%^&*]ing out Mamie in John's hospital room. And remember when Jill brought her "date" to Katherine's party only for the man to serve Katherine will a lawsuit? What an ingenius way to re-ignite Katherine and Jill's fued.

Jill used to be a lion with that huge mane of hair:

And don't forget her butch voice! Jess and Jeanne squabbling is music to my ears.

Marland ma man, <insert over-used line here> GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE lol. Ohhh Jill/Sheila being related would be so very very awesome. It would finally give Jess some more deserving airtime!! Love your ideas man, keep 'em coming. And from the interviews I read of Jess, she seems like a great person!

Yes Jill/Mamie were divine together! I loved them, and Jess was so good opposite Veronica Redd, loved there scenes. LoL Jill and Kay used to be CLASSIC MUST SEE TV! And that hair Wow, love Jess! Agreed, when Jill/Kay used to go at it, it was extremely entertaining, Stephanie/Brooke have nothing on the almight duo. :DB)

    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
    • Jon Michael Reed in an Afternoon TV review of GL criticized the 75-81 theme as looking and sounding like a Tampax commercial.
    • RHOM What a chaotic but absolutely great show. Miami just gets better with every episode.  I've always loved Las Cubanas, but they have gotten very mean-girl-clique. Alexia has always been such a great RH, but last season's success has gone to her head. She is disdainful of Adriana (who, though hard to like by some, was 100% in the right( and lowkey threatened by Nicole. Larsa is, too. I can't believe Larsa is swanning around, photographing her feet in lucite heels, thinking that qualifies as work and that this makes her superior to a full-time anesthesiologist. Bringing in the lawyers could have been so contrived (which it was), but it was so breezy and the lawyers were in on the joke of it all.  I can't believe I once found Lenny hot. Those were gaslighting, threatening words the Peacock mics picked up. No wonder those sweet kids are acting out. They are confused and probably feel lowkey abandoned by their father for this new hoe.
