Ugh - there is NOTHING at all interesting.

Soon there will be ten woman pining for Tucker to make this character work!?

Yet again Emily/Patty Jane!?

Dickolas and Syphillis yet AGAIN at crossroads? Betting a few bucks that this pairing from hell will soon be together again - like in 5 seconds post New Year's Eve.

MAB trying to redeem Victor before writing the next idiotic garbage for the pompous old man.

Victoria & Billy are the new Cane&Lily. An awful apiring no one cares a rat's ass about constantly pimped.

It's all just BAD. Sigh!

I'm sure MAB is trying to find a way to keep Haiduk on the show no matter what. This is her second time trying to make Emily happen.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out Diane faked her death and had surgery to look like Emily in order to come back to Genoa City, expose Patty (and Adam) as her "killer," and infiltrate Tucker and Jack's lives once more.

Seriously. It's like MAB was freeform-writing anything that came to her head on the back of a cocktail napkin at, like, a Herman Cain fundraiser.

Soon there will be ten woman pining for Tucker to make this character work!?

I don't know how MAB managed to destroy all the charisma and mojo out of Stephen Nichols, but somehow she has. In fact, Tucker and Genevieve have managed to wipe out any memory I had of these two actors in better days -- it is only as I was typing this that I realized that SN and GF once played a swoony Stefan and Laura on GH.

Yet again Emily/Patty Jane!?

I like Stacy Haiduk, I wouldn't mind a rehabilitated Patty in GC. But this Beekeeper hiding behind bushes? And Dr. Pee? Ugh. This character is done. Take your cat and piss off back to Mexico, and Emily can hightail it back to wherever and continue giving terrible psychiatric advice.

Dickolas and Syphillis yet AGAIN at crossroads? Betting a few bucks that this pairing from hell will soon be together again - like in 5 seconds post New Year's Eve.

Yeah, don't worry, Christmas Eve will see some For Old Time's Sake Phick Sex, NYE will see some Drunk Phick Sex, MLK day will see some Angry Phick Sex, Valentines Day (shudder) will see some Shower Phick Sex, Mother's Day will see some Sex on the Desk Phick Sex, a fight with Avery will see some I Want to Get Back at Avery Phick Sex, Phyllis and Nick's STD tests both coming back negative will prompt some Yay! Let's Do It Barebacked Phick Sex... I don't know how much longer Y&R can keep telling us how Hot and Steamy and Adult Phick are. Until cancellation probably.

If there is one thing that unites soaps on the road to cancellation, it is the overbearing insistance on a pairing that nobody likes -- usually at the expense of a pairing that people actually enjoyed. Rylee on AMC comes to mind. Cruz & Kelly on Santa Barbara, breaking up Jake & Paulina for Jake & NotVicky on AW...

MAB trying to redeem Victor before writing the next idiotic garbage for the pompous old man.

Redeems him... then he cooks up another horrendous Patty Jane/lets keep Billy away from his leukemia-ridden daughter scheme that ends up with somebody dying or on the brink of death. What next? Nikki being served a dead rat as a "nod to history"?

Victoria & Billy are the new Cane&Lily. An awful apiring no one cares a rat's ass about constantly pimped.

Bacteria, I don't mind so much, I actually think Lame are a LOT worse. But god, i would do anything to have Gina Tognoni play Victoria (I sort of want Heather Tom to stay on B&B as Katie, is that wrong?).

    • Tubi has some great stuff and I'm currently watching the He-Man She-Ra Christmas Special from 1985 
    • I recently came across the 1997 book Worlds Without End: The Art and History of the Soap Opera. In the book Bill Bell comments on two pivotal events in Y&R history. I hope nobody minds that I quoted his comments in full. On Taking Y&R to One Hour "Once assured that Y&R was a runaway hit, CBS inevitably wanted to talk to me about an hour. I'll spare you the gruesome details, but after months of enormous pressure from the network and the affiliates, I somehow found myself committed to doing the hour show. What ultimately happened is that our ratings went down and it took us three years to become number one again.   How could this have happened? One reason is that when we went to an hour, we had a number of cast defections. The issue of performing in a one-hour show had not been part of their contracts. And some of our leading actors understandably felt that their popularity on Restless would open the door to fame and fortune in nighttime or films. Obviously we had to recast prime characters in our two core families, the Brooks and the Fosters. It was then that I decided if even one more actor from these families decided to leave the show, I'd have to do something radical.   A short time later, Jaime Lyn Bauer, who played Lauralee Brooks and was one of the very few original cast members remaining, came to me and said she was physically exhausted, which she was, and that she wasn't going to renew her contract when it was up in August. This was February.   There was no other answer. I had to replace what had been the core of our show since its inception. Two complete families. About eleven actors in all. But replace them with what?   As I studied the remaining cast, I realized I had two characters - Paul Williams, played by Doug Davidson, and Jack Abbott, played by Terry Lester - both of whom had a relatively insignificant presence on the show. They didn't have families. Hell, they didn't even have bedrooms. But these became the two characters I would build our two new families around. I remember the head of daytime for CBS advising me "with the strongest possible conviction" that I was making a grave mistake by replacing these families. There was a great risk, no question, but my conviction was that it could be even more disastrous if I didn't.   I immediately began establishing new families while interweaving the old. We made this transformation without losing so much as a share point. In fact, our ratings and share points kept building, with our two new families emerging as the dominant characters on the show.   This is where Victor Newman came into the picture."   On Victor Newman "You are not going to believe this, but this character, who today is daytime's number one romantic lead, was to be a short-term noncontract role. It would last between eight to twelve weeks, at which time he was to be shot by his beautiful wife. In short, Victor Newman was in concept a despicable, contemptible, unfaithful wife abuser.   When I saw Eric Braeden's first performance - the voice, the power, the inner strength - I knew immediately that I didn't want to lose this man. He was exactly what the show needed. Not the hateful man we saw on-screen, but the man he could and would become over time.   The first thing was to get Eric under contract, but he didn't want to go under contract. He was very uneasy about television, the daytime serial, the people he worked with, the producers. This was a whole other world for Eric. And Eric is a cautious man.   Over time, Eric became more comfortable with the medium, and more trusting with the producers, and agreed to sign a contract. If memory serves, it was for six months. I immediately changed my story in the hope of salvaging this character.  The rest is history."
    • @JaneAusten the way and in the form most current media exist today is the reason why I have to read multiple sources every week, if I want even half the story.  Some days I can't even stomach much other than to read the headline the the lede. I can remember years ago when I would consume the news like it was my job because to be able to write, I felt like being well read was a must. To some extent, I still feel this way but I am far more circumspect about every single news source- I pretty much treat them all as if tabloid tendencies lurk beneath the surface.    
    • I don't disagree it's a waste of JKJ and honestly all the actors involved, but Phillip has been a villian in the past.  This plan is ludicrous, but it's not like he's been a straight edge good guy all along.  JKJ is playing it like he is a psycho though.
