Shemar was green when he started but he had a lot of natural talent and of course charisma. 

Looking back I hadn't realized how bad he was and stayed for most of his YR run.

Ok yea i was curious be a use i know Devon didn't really enter the winters bubble until like late 2004 and that's the same year mamie was last on so i was wondering if maybe they had some introduction and then that's it.

 

Does mamie have a goodbye scene or was she one of those famous there and gone the next day like nothing happened?


They mentioned she was going on a cruise, which is also the excuse they always use when she doesn’t return for funerals. Certainly not the type of exit she deserved based on how long she was around.

Lord, Shemar walked onto the set and was immediately the sexiest man on CBS at the time. If it wasn’t established that they were brothers, I would’ve been reading way too much into Malcolm giving Neil “fck me” eyes through the entire episode.

I remember they had basically a whole soft-porn episode with Malcolm shirtless and eye-fücking the camera at a Jabot photo shoot. They knew what they had with him. But of course if he were white, he have banged half of Genoa City (a la Aidan on AMC) in incredibly risqué love scenes. And while I know daytime loves rape, him taking advantage of Dru when she was on cold meds was so out of the blue and disrespectful. And not really explored character-wise.

The actress playing April was so bland. All I remember her saying was hi Robert. I never understood what Paul saw in her.

I loved Hope. Shame that they trashed her by making Adam such a monster.

This was not the bad decision, IMO: recasting (!?) Hope and killing her was the bad decision.

Shemar wasn't the best actor when he started but damn he was hot AF 🤤 🥰. No wonder he got shirtless scenes every week during his first three years 😂 Once Shemar arrived, he overshadowed every other daytime drama's Black male cast members, and all the Black male actors that the other daytime dramas hired afterwards. Even Y&R has tried to clone Shemar over the last two decades but those attempts have been an epic failure.

I feel like y&r was already a popular platform alone over the years but when shemar came into town he added the male african American spice that the show needed, even though neil and Nathan were already there i just think Malcolm was that character they could play around with and probably would have had great chemistry with everyone he interacted with.

 

Like im surprised they didn't try to Malcolm with sharon that would have been interesting Malcolm/sharon/nick triangle with grace involved or maybe victoria? They Did it with neil put him with victoria which im not sure if people reviewed it properly.

 

Also malcom and jill could have worked just as a fling cause they had good chemestry also, if im correct were malcom and phyllis ever lovers or slept together or were they always just close friends?

april is another character i still hardly know anything about but up until recently i had no idea she was on the show more back then like in 79-81, i wonder who she was friends with or interacted with besides paul being her baby father and her story with barbara and the parents?

I would guess Y&R's Black audience first came on board in the mid-1980s during the Jazz/Tyrone/Amy/Nathan era, then the Black audience was really cemented when Shemar arrived. 

 

Bill Bell used elements of the Jackson brothers 10 years later with the Winters brothers. Jazz and Tyrone's first scenes together are quite similar to Malcolm and Neil's first scenes together.

I liked that story, especially with Conci Nelson as Heather. I’m glad they had gotten back the original actress who played April. By this point I don’t think Paul even saw anything in her except as an old friend from a past long ago and the mother of his daughter as he was getting involved with Christine by this point. 
 

Malcolm and Phyllis were very close with one another as friends for a long time. I think if I remember right they did sleep with or at least made out with each other once when she was on rebound from another relationship, but nothing came of it.

She was a breath of fresh air.

 

It's hard to believe Adam is her child. Chip on his shoulder? Sure. But, by all accounts, he had a good childhood with Hope and a father figure in Cliff.

Just realized this press release is wrong - Shemar's first day is actually the day before, May 5, when Dru first calls him.

Here, at 32:00 https://youtu.be/b8C0V3_WBNM

Today's episode took me right back to that day in 1994 when my eyes saw the most beautiful man in the world and I never looked away..........yum yum yum. Shemar is still beautiful even at like 50 something years old.

I know. I think that every time Adam is on the screen. How is he Hope's son?

He is such a panty-dropper. I imagine a lot of women and gay men were giving themselves some self-love in the afternoon during his 90's heyday :D:D

Shemar was nominated for Hottest Male Star at the 1998 and 1999 SOD awards and lost to Ingo Rademacher in 1998 and Steve Burton in 1999. WTF? No way were those guys hotter than Shemar.

Haha I never took those SOD awards ever seriously, especially since there was always excessive ballot stuffing from Days and GH employees and fans at the mag itself. Didn’t they have some silly controversy over actual reader ballots getting thrown away while a GH employee tried to skew the results?
