AMC: Newbie fired


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Bobby Steggart (Sam) has been fired. No re-cast.

I don't really mind, they have to cut people. And he's one who could go. But he's not my number 1 choice: Anita, Josh, and Amanda all should have gone 1st.

And why did they fire him? Because apparently he has no story without Edmund and Maria. Yet they put him on contract after Edmund was gone and after they knew Eva was leaving. I swear Frons, McT and JHC haven't got a brain cell between them. So now Julia has even fewer connections to the show. Really, really smart.

thats McT shooting herself in the foot there. She's just admitted she's a plot driven writer. If she was truly a character driven writer, it wouldnt matter one bit who the hell Sam's family was. As long as he has history with the show, he's viable to do ANYTHING.

AMC = PATHETIC.

ITA. Not to mention he does have more family that alot of other characters. Ruth, Joe, Tad, Palmer, Brooke (kind of...would have liked to have seen that explored more). Could you imagine how interesting it would have been to really see Sam get to know his adopted family....bring Kelsey back etc. But that's so not McTavish. Broderick though would have gone with that.

But hey, one less character that's an obstacle to this Lavery mess. I'm convinved the Jonathan thing has kind of forced them to get rid of Sam. No way could they both live in the same town.

It just seems weird how they are so quick to get rid of some people while others seem to have nine lives. Sam was not a priority firing. Definitely no big loss, but there was potential. No potential with Anita. None.

I guess I'm a little ticked bc I was sure the blind item about a newbie leaving was Amanda :(

And WTH is happening with Danielle?

I think they are keeping Anita around so that it still makes a little since for Julia to be in PV. I dont see any Santoses left this time next year. I wish they would get rid of Julia, Anita, Ethan, Danielle, Simone, and all of the other unused characters to throw some money towards Cady McClain. I dont dislike Ethan, Danielle, or Simone but, with the exeption of Julia Barr, I dont see the point of paying actors if they are not used or they dont have a story in the works. I think in Brooke's case they should be developing a story. But all of the non-vets with no story are pointless to keep around.

They drop him, yet keep ANITA???????? :angry:

There's something seriously wrong about that.

yeah thats what I thought. When I read the heading I was hoping Anita but then rememebred she wasnt a newbie. I loved Sam and the show should have explored him more as a Cortlandt and Martin. They didnt. I was hoping his relationship with Julia would be explored too but thats not going to happen

    • 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.
