The same facial expression in every scene.

What a thrill.

I don't know I love him for some reason. I just find his manners to be so honest and real. He reminds me a lot of Trevor St. John in the fact that he never seems to try to hard and yet manages to fully portray his characters effortlessly. I find his work to be visually quite enjoyable and he never lets a scene fall flat. I think he's quite organic even though I do feel he isn't a strong comedic actor. I find him to be more watchable then Joshua Marrow, most of the male Newman's, Fishers and other miscellaneous side characters. I definitely think he is one of the stronger young male performers in soaps today.

I wish I liked Billy Miller. I know hes incredibly popular on Y&R but I really dont like Billy.

I don't even like Billy (Abbott) . But I do like Miller. However Billy as a character is just so irresponsible and infuriating to watch that I don't think I could ever find him likable as a character. He is a complete and utter train wreck of a person who never manages to get it together. The only good thing about him is that he is capable of being quite witty and charming. But I do agree that BM's Billy reeks of issues and not in the good character study kind of way.

Worse then the B&B? Days? I think Y&R's cast is about as good as GH's for better or worse and I would say both casts are fairly solid. I don't think any of the soaps are doing too hot in terms of quality casting/acting. Even OLTL and AMC seem to be a lot weaker in terms of quality then they were half a decade ago.

Yes. B&B has a few bright spots, and I think DAYS does too. DAYS has some charismatic young talent and the older guys usually try, and still have a spark. B&B at least has Don Diamont, and I think JY might have a chance if they write for him. Scott Clifton is OK too.

Y&R is full of the worst combination - men who can't act and men who don't even bother. Stars like Braeden and Morrow set an example with their "When's lunch?" mindset, and others are tic-laden and, as with Miller, don't bother to make any connection with scene partners. Billy will have the exact same reaction to anything, any time.

I can't think of a single exceptional actor on Days outside the possible exception of James Scott. But I find that even he has run his course as EJ. I think Y&R has at least Christian LeBlanc, Peter Bergman, Billy Miller and Kristoff St. John who are at times exceptional actors. As to Braeden he is subdued but I find that to be just who Victor is he is a man of few words who is very calm, and Braeden at the very least has gravitas in all of his scenes. Which is something I just don't see for a lot of male talent on shows these days. I concede your point on Scott Clifton and Don Diamont being the brightest stars on B&B. But even Clifton's star has dimmed since his star making role as GH's Dillon Q.

Y&R is full of the worst combination - men who can't act and men who don't even bother.

The male talent on soaps in general is quite low though. Out of all the soaps still on I would say the good to great actors are slim B&B (2), Days (1), Y&R (6), AMC (5), OLTL (0), GH (4). I would say out of them all though Y&R has a better cast then most.
