AMC Tribute Thread

Recommended Posts

Pratt talks about AMC in the interview he basically said that what Lucci said about him telling the actor's forget what they know about their character wasn't true, that he never said that.

He says he has no regrets about his time at AMC, he didn't always have support or support in the right direction, but didn't notice it at the time. He didn't agree strongly with moving the show to L.A., he said he thought "wow we're letting accountants figure out the future of the show", and they were uprooting every actor and blamed it on him cause he lived in Los Angeles.

He loves where Adam killed Stuart, he thought that was a great story, that the audience wanted to kill him. He loved doing the gay marriage. He supposes there are things he should regret, but doesn't. He filled up fives shows a week with exciting stuff. He thought the show was good when he was there. The only thing he didn't like was when people said, when the show was canceled two years later, that people blamed him and didn't know how you could do that.

He badmouthed and/or dismissed the cast throughout his tenure (the low point being when he went to the press to say they'd better shape up if they're going to work with Jamie Luner, or whatever it was), and he's upset he didn't get more support?

The gay marriage story was an insult. An insult. Reese was craving cock before and after that marriage. What a great message to send out.

He's either in denial about what he said or trying to appease the Sony executives who hired him that he won't destroy Y&R.

I didn't think I could dislike Pratt any more than I already did, but his ego is so tremendous he doesn't regret any of his stories, including Adam killing Stuart, Bianca's one-day farce of a marriage and Erica bedding Ryan?!?!blink.png

To a (hack) writer, I can see where a twin killing his twin might seem like great drama, but it just shows how little respect he had for the show or characters.

Off to the grocery store. I need to see this sh!t with my eyes. Shame on that rodent for calling La Lucci a liar. I hope she retorts.

I'm really pleased someone finally asked him about this at least. Good on SOD as always.

The Who Killed Stuart episodes were great from a technical standpoint and provided cool buildup and mystery for that sweeps month. It really brought the cast together in an interesting way. But everything after it was barely tolerable. The Kendall trial & incarceration was a mess (I'm still so shocked they put Alicia through all that as she was going through her 1st pregnancy - some of the most pressing material in her career. They had her runnning around outside near the ocean at some point, trying to hide from the cops. WTF?). The only good thing that happened was Marian shooting Marissa.

I admit I still watch Stuart's funeral sometimes. Just the part when everyone was singing "High Hopes" which I had never heard before. Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

Let's not forget Michael E. Knight while we're at it. He alleged in one interview that Pratt told him how he likes to have characters behave OOC every so often in order to keep them from becoming predictable.

I doubt anyone seriously blamed Pratt for Brian Frons' decision to relocate AMC's production offices and studios to L.A. In fact, I suspect the majority knew all along Frons' real agenda.

So Pratt is going to just flat out deny rumors that he didn't care for character's backstory and characteristic when a group of people came out saying the exact same thing? :rolleyes:

OK, Chuck. dry.png

AMC under his vision was painful to watch from start to finish. Especially the Reese/Bianca romance, Stuart murder mystery, and Annie's decent into madness. Yes, Annie breathed new life during his reign & he brought on Jamie Lunar, who was a great casting coup, but the show was hot garbage. His firing was right up there when GL finally snatched the reigns from Kreizman in the final years.

When I saw that I just started thinking of the soap magazine reports at the time that the woman who played Claudette was very angry about being made the killer and being written out.

Frankly I'm kind of surprised Claudette stayed as long as she did.

"You like my kissing, yes?" LMAO

Boy oh boy those 80's ABC promos. LOL! So cool watching them but I can't imagine ever being roped in by a single one. They seem so overbearing and even cheesy sometimes. I guess that's how things were "in" back then laugh.png
