Y&R SID - Character Snaps!

Rewriting your character based on a previous soap is always questionable. There were reasons why Annie became popular, beyond being crazy - a lot of fans hated Ryan and hated Greenlee and hated Kendall, and were happy she joined in. There isn't that type of character at Y&R. She's more likely to be roadkill, especially since she has no chemistry with anyone on the show.

There is a huge difference in Ryan and Adam, the public didn't hate Ryan... the boards did, the public actually loved him. Couple that with the fact that Cameron was a popular personality outside the show.

Now Adam, no one likes Adam and judging from every time Muhney is mentioned, disdain comes with, he doesn't seem to popluar either. And lets not act like Sharon is popular either.

Basically you have two characters people don't like, and one no one cares about. I actually think MCE can start to make people care about Chelsea with this storyline. The public loves their crazys, she sold it on AMC and I think she can do it again. And the leg up that Chelsea has on Annie is, there not rewriting her history. Annie was a stepford wife her first few years, miss goodie two-shoes and BORING. Then all of a sudden she had this terrible childhood (despite always saying it was good), a bad relationship with her father, and a crazy brother, and then she went cray cray. Chelsea hasn't had a good life, nor has she been exactly a good girl either. I don't think her going crazy is as farfetched as it was with Annie.

Was there ever doubt Annie was going crazy facilitate to Shadam?

There ever never a doubt Annie was going crazy facilitate Shadam. Adam is popular and Sharon even more so. No one here likes MM but he has a lot of fans with a sizable fanbase, and SC is a vet. The writing in the past few years destroyed her character but Sharon remains popular. MCE does crazy well so we'll see if the writing will make her sympathetic. Usually when a regime starts telling you who you should root for with slanted writing the opposite tends to happen. At least it will make Chelsea interesting instead of playing the dutiful stepford wife she became. Hopefully it wont be her swan song but Chelsea is not needed.

    • Looking at that list, I highly doubt it.  That list is full of the most mainstream programming on streaming.  While I am sure DAYS does well enough, there is no way it reaches the kind of streaming numbers stuff like Wednesday and Yellowstone are getting.
    • Many have noted that Soap Opera Digest seems to be on it's last legs. A review of the publisher's website shows that they only sell 55,000 copies a week, to an audience with an average age of 54.3 and an income of 35K, which obviously does not make them competitive in advertising market.  Especially when one considers that even Ohio Cooperative Living sells 6x's as many copies per week. But, today's news that their parent company A360media sold the National Enquirer and The Star, which they've been trying to sell for years, leaves them with Us, Closer,and Life & Style (each which sells 3x's more copies per week), and SOD.  Which makes me wonder if SOD's finale may happen this year? Also, what's up with the cooperative community in Ohio that is so fascinating? Please register in order to view this content
    • One of my guys on my Team thinks that P&G directed him to write those crime dramas specifically to mimic what GH was doing. He also said the first was good & then they were ... I believe his exact word was  godawful. For some reason I cannot remember them! D'oh. How long till Catlin & Sally? Or is it Jake & the Loves next? As you can see, I am turned around.

Marley had lied to Vicky & told her no rape occurred. Marley had been truthful with Cass that Jake had raped her. Marley admitted in court that Jake had raped her. Afterward, in her anger, Vicky destroyed the first women's restroom she came to. Thanks to Another World Memories on #SoapTwitter!   I believe all of this is on her Emmy reel that she won with. 
    • Tom King did a relatively good job writing for Lemay's existing characters.  But King's new characters were terribly ill conceived, and his writing for them was awful.  Had King been smart, he would not have written-off so may of Lemay's characters.  King eventually dedicated at least one fourth of the cast to badly written crime drama, which did not fit the style of Another World.  All soaps occasionally do crime plots, but King over-did it, plus the plots were not compelling.  And for some reason, the next two or three head-writers continued with the bad crime stuff.  
    • Oh, how I laughed at that.   You're not. Some people have been saying the same. And Twitter definitely has been arguing that very point along with the potential return of Mary to SLC given she skipped the second season reunion. It sets a standard and people are going to wonder...especially the housewives themselves.   Perhaps he will ask on that one on one. Please register in order to view this content
