Glad I'm not the only one to notice the subtle, little changes. I can see they're trying but yeah, a looong way to go. Frank and Varni are still there and pets are still around so ... time will tell. At least it's becoming watchable and almost entertaining. 

 

I have noticed it too. I wonder if Varni has realized micromanaging the writers wasn't leading to good ratings. Like, let the creatives do their thing and stick to your business ish if that's what you're good at.

Varni is awful. I don't think Frank is much better ... but the shift is apparent. Still a very long way to go though.

I follow GH thru Twitter, and I'm not seeing the changes you guys are talking about.  I'm seeing returns (good ones tho) with all of the stories centered around Frank's pets.  I was home early a few weeks ago and after 2 segments, I turned the channel.  I'm still seeing an awful show.  The dialogue is garbage and the stories are still lacking.  If it's not a pet, Frank will not give the story the attention it needs.  Take for example Neil's medical license in jeopardy.  When did he and Alexis get to the point to where his career was in trouble?  What happened with Keifer's sister after she was hit by a car?  Does Alexis even talk about that?

 

Frank is simply ill equipped, and that would not be so bad if he didn't micro manage his team.  

 

I will wait for clips of Taggart but I have no hope for a good show under Frank.  

 

If you aren't watching and have your mind made up then 🤷‍♂️ I've never said it was good. I some changes and subtle improvements I like that you can only see if you watch every day. I mean, it's not a fluke when you have several of us noticing. The problem is the show has been pure [!@#$%^&*] for years so any little difference is an improvement ;) 

 

Do you not see most of us still bitching about Frank and Varni and me saying flat out they're still an issue? lol. I have said pets still exist. Franco has aired once this month, though. Just saying.

 

The show could easily go back to unwatchable garbage. I take what I get at this point. We're never going back to what the soaps really should be. I mean, I could write an essay on what's wrong with this show. But I'll take the little differences right now. It helped this week was Tracy and Brook Lynn heavy.

I'm one minute into today's episode and I wish they'd recast Spencer.

Puberty hit Nicholas Bechtel like a bus.

 

I'm still not entirely sure if he had any chemistry with Marcus Coloma yet.

If it's like the one I saw online for yesterday's Y&R a day early, it is probably intentional to keep it up. But what happened? A preemption?

 

Meanwhile, GH YouTube channel also have some clips up as well. I can't believe how big Spencer has grown since I was a regular viewer.

I couldn’t believe it when I saw him in the video you posted for this week. He was a child the last time I watched the show.

IKR!!!  I might have seen him maybe once since I stopped watching regularly and he was a little bit taller and had his glasses, but still looked the same. 

 

So....wow.  I admit it is nice to see a show let a kid grow up onscreen a la Robin/Jessica/Maxie1.

Sadly, a lot of soap Twitter is calling for him to be recast because he's not tall enough or good looking enough or whatever to fit in with Josslyn, Cameron and Trina. I understand why they want him to be their age and have a quad. But why can't we just appreciate Nicolas for his acting ability and for having grown up with him and be patient and realize he will grow into his features within the next year or so? I just feel bad for him. Puberty is rough for anyone, let alone an almost 15 year old who I'm sure wishes he was taller etc. by now. That doesn't mean he should be recast. If he was also a bad actor, I might understand it, but he's not. He brought more emotion in the reunion scenes than Marcus as Nikolas. I do agree that the "precociousness" of the character is now gone a bit and they probably need to decide what they want Spencer's personality as a teen to be if they want him on full-time but none of that is Nicolas's fault.

EXACTLY!!! From reading recaps, it appears Spencer is brought back when needed, using have some presence in storyline. And then he leaves again. So I don't mind that for a while, allowing for the character to grow.

 

In fact, the reunion might be a great reset for what they want his personality to be. I don't know if he kept up the self absorbed rich kid with a heart when I stopped watching, but perhaps the fact that Nikolas kept himself 'dead' for three years might make him be a bit of a introvert, trying to put out the image of what a good prince...one who does not need to fake his death to get things done...should be. Even be a bit brainy. Maybe...?
