Alright, it's a new year! What are your hopes/wishes for 2010? Year after year, mine never seems to come true. :lol:

I'd like to see Richard Culliton get to headwrite a soap again, and do a good job with it.

I'd like to see Nancy Curlee on a soap again.

I'd like to see Guza fired.

I'd like to see Rauch and Sheffer replaced.

I'd like all the soaps to stay on the air.

Um, no way! Richard needs to stay at DAYS as their best script writer. SW is his best position.

I'd like to see Guza fired.

This is my wish, year after year, that never comes true. I don't think 2010 will be any different. :( It will take a MIRACLE for "Robert Guza Jr. last listed as Head Writer on ....." to happen.

I'd like to see Rauch and Sheffer replaced.

Agreed. And Hamner too. And I'd like to see Kay Alden and John F. Smith back at Y&R in Sheffer/Hamner's spot.

If LML gets the AMC job, I hope Hamner will follow his BFF.

I always forget about Hamner. If he does go to AMC I hope he doesn't inflict those awful "mysteries" on people. Who Killed Ovaltine? isn't quite the same as Who Killed Will Cortlandt?

You're probably right about Culliton, I just wish he got more opportunities to shape a soap, as I think he did well at AMC and at AW. I guess from what you said he's doing that at DAYS.

I know GH might not change at all without Guza, but I'd like to see them get the opportunity. Even the thought of McTavish returning doesn't scare me, because I thought she was better anyway.

My wishes for Y&R in terms of writers/producers/directors in 2010:

- I'd like to see Hogan Sheffer, Scott Hamner, Paul Rauch fired, and I'd like Y&R's breakdown and script teams to be trimmed and some better staff writers to get in there. Maybe Maria can stay on as a figurehead, if we can't get rid of her too, but those she leans on for creative support need to be fired and replaced by more competent people who understand soap opera basics and the essence of Y&R. I'd also like these ideally more competent HW's (or Co-HW's) do all the hiring or firing in terms of the writing staff.

- A smaller writing staff for Y&R with stronger script and breakdown writers, if that wasn't quite clear in my first wish.

- Maybe someone can get Trent Jones or James Houghton out from whatever rock they're under to help Co-HW/HW Y&R. I think they've more than earned it, but if that's not to be, I'll take Kay Alden and John F. Smith back.

- David Shaughnessy can come back to Y&R and take over Rauch's producing duties. Katherine Foster can also come back as producer/director. Anthony Morina can be fired as well.

- A new casting director for Y&R, too. Preferably a casting director with some theatrical experience.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- I want Guza to be fired at GH too, but I've also been wishing that for a good 6 years and nothing's ever going to happen on that front.

- I want AMC to finally get a stable writing regime in there.

I'd like to see Nancy Curlee on a soap again.

This would be one of my biggest wishes, though I know it will never happen. However, I'm always up for miracles and surprises. I'd take her at any of the current soaps.

A 2009 item that I didn't see in the list.

Ryan Quan was listed on 12/29 even though John Newman wrote the script. Previously he was only listed when he wrote a script.

Shelley Curtis is going back to work and will be directing for AMC: LA. Not sure if it'll be more regular than her NY gigs (probably), but there ya have it.

Also, I previously reported that most of AMC's producers would make the move to LA...apparently not. Not sure about Ginger Smith, but Coordinating Producer Nadine Aronson and Associate Producer Enza Dolce have left the show.

And, not a big surprise, but Casey Childs did not make the move to LA either. Nor did Michael Pomarico.

Sinclair will be happy that there will be no more schizo camera movements etc. :)

I'm glad she's back in daytime, I didn't think she would, after that interview she gave in 2007 saying how over the genre she was and how soaps were no fun anymore.

I always thought she was such an unsung hero during her time at both GH and DAYS, the actors on both shows really loved her, but she rarely got enough credit for her contributions, which apparently was a lot.
