Hell no. IMO, all these women on this show need to fall ill of some disease that makes them all barren. I'm sick of babies on this show. They're only used as props at the end of the day. If anything, the show needs to make Kelly become an equally bitchy rival for Phyllis [a la Diane Jenkins] and go from there.

The thing is Jean knows how to script a baby story she did it at AT&T with Jen and Gwen. Since She Is Staying To Assist Pratt This Is Her Speciality.

I agree Jack should not be having any more kids, but I can definitely see it going there, especially since Victoria's baby didn't go to Stitch. Driving Phyllis crazy(er) while cementing Kelly/Stitch/Maureen to the canvass is going to be hard for the writers to resist, imo.

All she did was copy and paste a story that was being done on another soap. Anyone can do that...

As for today…I see Steve Burton is at it again with a love scene and his shirt on…..lol

Today's show was fantastic. Pratt is not needed at all. What Jean P and Shelley are writing is incredibly rich smart psychological writing. The show isn't campy at all like it was under MAB. The scenes with Gina and Christian were fantastic. What great writing and again psychological soap writing galore. The scenes with Jack and Kelly were great as I feel Kelly is very fragile and going to break. Cady is coming into her own in this role. I would love to see Kelly turn the tables on this wedding. Again today's show proved Pratt is not freaking needed as Jean and Shelley are hitting their stride in writing and ratings. They are the best writing team since Jack Smith.

Does anyone know if Michael is going to die? He is one of my favorites..Cady needs to be a strong adversary for Phyllis..I hate the way Phyllis is lying to Jack..he did lie to her but 2 wrongs don't make a right except in soaps.

Jean Passanante helped to kill one of the best daytime dramas of all time - As the World Turns! ATWT - a show i invested more then 30 years in.

The fact she is staying on a staff headed by Chuck Pratt doesn't give me much hope for the Young and the Restless.

Anybody who continually praises her work here never really knew her work at ATWT.!

i am sorry but I check the Y&R threads quite often and after seeing the constant pimping of JP as this show's savior - I had to say something!

Yeah ,I am still bitter! Hi Ron!smile.png

He needs to relax and let go during his love scenes. He's trying too hard. And nobody kisses like that. JM is a great kisser, SB should take some notes from him.

I thought today was incredibly boring except for Adam/Sage.

IA about Adam, not so sure about Sage. She's angry all the time and it gets old for me. On Thursday's show Adam appeared in a tank top. Thank you, show! He's seriously gorgeous.

The other entertaining part of the show, I think it was Friday's show, was Sharon working up her courage to go into work at Jabot just to have the newly hired Phyllis fire her immediately. She really should have seen that coming, lol.

The thing is ratings are up for the show and morale seems to be very well. What Jean did in the past is in the past. She has made her mistakes. What she has done to Y&Rs is nothing short of a true miracle as she is writing scenes that are so character driven. Smart character writing is driving the show. It's not plot driven. She and Shelley are the first head writers to really pen us a smart soap. If u want more entertainment escapism than GH is the show for u. If u really want a soap to give u a truly traditional take on storytelling but present it upscale than Y&Rs is the show. Pratt again scares me but maybe keeping Jean she will be his good luck charm. She's a multiple emmy winner and hugely respected by the WGA.
