Members JONNYSBRO Posted August 24, 2008 Members Share Posted August 24, 2008 I always thought about this hypothetical situation. I can only imagine if Bill Bell Sr who gave his heart and soul to the Young and the Restless and made it the classiest best soap ever would think of Lynn Latham's Y&R. I just watched some old clips on youtube. I watched Y&R probably from 1990 to about 1993 religiously. I was so into the David Kimball storyline which was classic television and I love the Sheila storyline. Nobody can spin a storyline like Bill Bell. I loved the Y&R slow pace because it worked and Bell always climaxed it into a wonderful dramatic fashion after a few years. As Ed Scott said Bell never compromised on quality at the Y&R. I loved the way Y&R was produced with the close ups, the old fashioned music and everything that made the show so classy and great. Ever since Bell stepped down in 1998 the show started going downhill. Nothing ever went more downhill when Lynn Latham took over and destroyed it by firing all of Bell's legacy. She fired all the producers, directors,writers and brought all her own people. Bell ran such a great behind the scenes environment that these crew members never left. Latham literally took everything Bell did and trashed it with a faster pace that never works for Y&R, she also decided to make it more hip in her own eyes but wow she destroyed it. Now if Bell was alive and actually watched Latham's Y&R, what do you think he would have thought? OMG the man would be horrified what she has done to his baby. Do you think Bell was turning in his grave over Latham's Y&R? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
