Darn, you always take the words out of my mouth!

 

Does this mean Melissa Ordway is here to stay?...

 

Finally someone who gets me!

 

Looks like it, despite her acting, lack of charisma and purpose she's here to stay.

I wish GH would do a new one. It's so cheap and lazy. I mean at least they eventually update who's on there, if you're fast enough to catch it or pause it. You can never even really see who's on the right hand side. Anywho, that rant over ....

 

LOVE the new opening! Class all the way. However the font for the cast names? TRAGIC. I could do that on my own computer. It makes it look fan made.

 

Davidson's pose is everything :wub:

 

And I wouldn't read into the credits. Someone could be added and then fired a week later. One doesn't really equal the other. And at this point, they're better off trying to make Abby work rather than recast yet again.

I thought that was going to be a main open - Faith in her poses with an adult in the very far background (usually applauding or praising her) with the final shot of Faith/Gloria high-fiving each other surrounded by lots of shrubbery. 

 

LMAO DEAD

 

I want this opening ASAP

They've tried to make Abby work for 3 years now. I lIke MO as a person but her Abby will never be more than supporting. And that's more than fine too.

The problem with openings like this is that the next time they add a new cast member the lighting and camera quality will not match. See ATWT's opening from the early 2000s, if you weren't a part of the original photo shoot your shots look like crap.

Yep. I know. It's unfortunate that a character like Abby will never be more than supporting. This is the future lead of your show. Sigh. Oh well. But I don't know that recasting would work either. You could probably find an actress to knock it out of the park but is the writing for Abby even there. Would it matter? They aren't even bothering with her. Poor actress or not.

Hehe :wub: so true, all of it. I can't believe a show that has YOUNG in the title has bungled their younger generation so horribly.

Love the new opening. Classy and elegant.

 

Cast members look great, and so are the lighting and editing, regardless what some posters are saying. I'm especially glad the open wasn't cut to 15 or 20 seconds, which I feared.

AW's last opening was BAD for that. The new cast additions after RKK all being shot on videotape was so JARRING when the rest were on film stock. And by the end they just kept clipping the intro shorter and shorter because they knew it looked bad. Shameful.

Personally, I like the new intro, but agree, it looks a bit too college-student-fan-used-Final Cut-for-his-end-of-year-project for me. And keeping Michelle Stafford's headless body shot was kinda pointless, but...*shrug*, it's still miles better than any intro they've had since the late 90s (hated the 1999 p*rn intro as well).

too modern. I kind of wish they had kept a black/white filter. The visuals just dont match the classic audio

 

One thing I noticed that at least based off that one, it had tons of vets. And yes even CKLily is a vet at this point. Y&R has a sense of familiarity with its actors

It looks cheap. But then again, Y&R has been looking cheap for a few years now (Thank you, JFP -.-), and unfortunately Mal doesn't know how to do elegance/glamour.

It is a much needed update that looks good. I wish they'd gotten rid of the Headless Woman Walking, but overall it's a nice throwback to the 1990s opening which I loved. 

 

Agreed. Headless Woman Walking, as we probably all know, is Michelle Stafford back when the producers thought she was the end-all and be-all of the show. Since she was excised from Y&R in less-than-amicable circumstances (after she threw a tantrum over screen partners and JFP), they should have nixed these 3 seconds from the opening and just shown the YR paint stroke being drawn in.

 

Love the background paint effects, though, and while the lighting may not be fabulous, I think these shots are MILES better than the boring ABC ones JFP had done. I will never get over the way JFP tried to generify Y&R into some sub-ABC bland mess.
