ATWT: Is Goutman out?


Recommended Posts

Vivian Gundaker who you are referring to knows the history of ATWT. She has been with the show for a very long time. It seems like Christopher Goutman nor Jean Pissanante dont go to her for a history lesson of the show.

I know that Goutman does alot(and I mean alot) of enabling where Jean Passanante is concerned, but my bigger fear is who would replace Goutman.

At least with Goutman as a showrunner, we have shitty stories, but great production values. Goutman leaves and whoever replaces him may end up really inflating the budget(casuing even more cast cuts) or not knowing how to properly manage the show.

If they replace Goutman, there better be a really good plan in place for whoever replaces him. Especially since there's no chief of PGP anymore.

Goutman is a great EP. He just needs a really good HW to breathe life into the shows he produces.

Goutman and great production values seem to have parted ways recently. Half the scenes are now shot with a harsh creamsicle tint. If that darn meeting place in the middle of town was divided in half and reworked, Lily and Holden could have their own living room, maybe with materials left over for a workplace like BRO. Story wise, he doesn't get involved nearly enough to diffuse Passanante's weaknesses.

I think Goutman is a good EP if he has the RIGHT headwriter. However, I do think the reason Goutman is keeping JP as HW goes beyond business. I think he's actually putting friendship before business. I'll never understand why though.

    • Also Kale Browne (Michael, AW/Sam, OLTL), Linda Dano (Felicia, AW/Rae, OLTL) and a shorter stint Kevin McClatchy (Nick, AW/ Brian, OLTL)  Lisa Peluso must have crossed paths with people on OLTL as well when she returned briefly after AW. 
    • Not exactly a relatable problem is it?
    • Brenda Epperson was dare I say better than Eileen Davidson. She was warmer, had more sex appeal, and romatic chemistry with her male love interests than Eileen. Eileen was better as Kristin on DAYS for me.  Shari Shattuck however, wasn't all that. She wasnt terrible, just not right for Ashley.

    • Okay, I'll play. Y&R: I'd replace Jason Thompson's Billy with Randy Wayne (Matthew, the Bay). He's only a couple years younger than Miller and in my opinion fits the "type" of Billy Abbott. With a new Billy, I'd keep Billy and Lily separated.    B&B: Robin Christopher as Felicia Forrester? I'd like to see her go up against Deacon and Bill. She could come into Forrester and want to take the company back as a "true" Forrester instead of Ridge and his kids (who are Marones.)  Tamara Braun I'd take as B&B's Kristen Forrester. If Zende is going to be on, Kristen should be around. (I also like the idea of Krista Tesreau, tho she's a couple years older than RC. Krista and Sean Kanan  as Deacon could be interesting.) This has been mentioned before, but I'd be okay with Robert Kelker Kelly taking over as Ridge. TK has always bored me. I don't think he "fits" as Ridge either. He's always so "greasy" looking to me. Sorry. Ridge is supposed to be in the fashion industry and Forrester an icon and yet he always looks so...unkept.
