Y&R: Who do you want as HW?

I want MAB. She had a rocky start, but I like that she writes the characters the way they should be written. I'm interested in several of the upcoming stories, such as Philip's return, Adam's gas lighting of Ashly and MJ's agenda. Opinions?

LMAO this thread :lol: . I wonder if it will get a single serious reply? Folks LOVE the "community" of the weekly thread, as well they should.

For me, ALL Y&R talk should be "okay" in the big thread.

Now, onto your topic: I totally agree. I think MAB is doing fine. She's a wonderful custodian of an established product. She's slightly tweaking some elements (humor, pacing), but for the most part this is still RECOGNIZABLY the Y&R brand. But, to paraphrase Backus, with Sheffer she's managed to inject some "hoot factor" that makes the show a pleasure to watch.

Even when the plots are far-fetched, most single episodes are entertaining.

MAB is just not a storyteller, and she's not very creative.

I posted this in the discussion thread:

I was very positive about this show from November to part of March. Since then, its all gone to hell (though it may still be better than most soaps out there).

I also realized that during when the show was more decent from November to March, there were lots of problems that MAB ignored, and that she still ignores. Like the horrible storytelling for the Winter's, the fact that characters like Nikki, Paul, Lauren, Michael, JT, Victoria, and others haven't been used much and have no storyline. Not mention, the ridiculous pacing of some storyline and the lack of romance and corporate intrigue. This has gone on for close to a year now, and it's not getting any better.

MAB blatantly ignores her biggest problems, and sorry, she's been there too long now for me to excuse them.

Anything that doesn't involve half of the cast in a triangle, most of the character's as criminals, most of the storylines being mystery related is welcolmed. MAB finds one or two themes and she makes the whole show about that specific theme.

I do not want another mystery, mental illness, or triangle story. What happened to the romance, social issue storylines, and the corporate intrigue storylines? I'd hardly call Jabot changing CEO's every 5 minutes a corporate storyline.

There was a time when I was watching Vera sto Dexi and I thought that that woman should be writing a US daytime soap. Her soaps have some elements I really love (example: the men talk and behave like men), but NO WAY.

:lol:

I was joking, I really was. No way in hell that could ever work.

What's up now? :lol:

Sorry, I was just anticipating. ;)

You know something? Why don't MAB and Co. just wrap up everything they're doing by, oh, next Friday? Then, using the current cast, she can just "restart the clock", so to speak; go back to day damn one, and use Bill Bell's old scripts, w/ new actors playing the original characters. That way, no one has any reason to complain (save for the Cane/Lily/Devon/Tyra haters, of course). What do ya say? :D

My choice is Patrick Mulcahey, and if you exclude his scripts at B&B, he is still pretty damn talented in my book. :)

I like Bakus and I would take him anywhere on a writing team. He said he wished he knew then what he knows now about being a HW now. Perhaps, if her were paired with a talneted Co-HW that knew the show, I could accept it. Backus has experience with scripts, breakdowns, editing, and as HW. I think that helps a lot when you're HW. But again, I'm not fully endorsing him either.

Of course, my ideal choice would be Nancy Curlee, but that ship sailed A LONG TIME AGO.

    • He played someone named David Bordisso on PC so probably. He looked like a Founding Father. There's been a lot of talk about the show never finding a man who could toe to toe with Eileen's Ashley but Jill has never had a suitable love interest. John doesn't count because that was hardly a passionate love affair or marriage and Colin sure as hell doesn't count because that story sucked and they write Jill as stupid when she's in "love". ANYway back to the topic, has anyone mentioned the Ford (modeling agency) brothers from OLTL? What even was that? It was so transparent and lazy. How do we count the many, many forced familial units on GH? Obrecht gained a son and daughter in two established characters, a niece in Nina and thereby great-nieces in Willow and Nelle and a lover in Faison. How do we count those? Where it's revealed multiple disparate characters are all related.
