Y&R to air classic episodes

Recommended Posts


I am so sad that the show is returning. How depressing. I was hoping to see more 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001.

 

The current show’s writing—plot and characterization—is so uninspired, insipid, and boring. Characters and couples have little rooting value and actors who we used to depend on to deliver, no matter the caliber of writing, are clearly bored (Stafford, MTS, EB, et al). I can’t watch a show that focuses on Chelsea, Abby (this incarnation) or Lily, and Adam and Billy have been “off” for years. 

 

Maybe the ratings will finally be so low that Griffith will be shown the door. I got into this show 30 years ago because though it moved slowly, every single story had an enormous payoff like no other show and it was rarely disappointing. Everything now happens with a whimper.

So Jack and Gina were a thing once upon a time? Or did I misread their situation?

 

How the heck the snooty church lady find out about Paul's centerfold? Was she doing "research" for the Anti-Pornography Commission? Bwahaha!!!

In late 1982, when Gina arrived in town, Traci thought she was romantically linked to Danny at first and was jealous. Jack was married to Patty but very unfaithful. He tried to romance Julia when she moved back to Genoa City (you can see the clip in the vault when he romanced her with flowers) then rebuffed, he tried to date Gina who realized he was also bedding Diane Jenkins. Jack gave Gina the money to buy Jonas' as Leslie Brooks had left town and asked her father Stuart to sell it. Gina convinced Stuart and to thank Jack, she offered him a room above the restuarant where he could have all the fun he wanted. Jonas' became Gina's of course. That is the time Jack bedded Gina (March-April 1983). Stuart showed an interest in Gina as Liz was still refusing to reconcile with him despite Kay's attempts. Stu then disappeared and it led to nothing. Danny was horrified that Gina and Jack were having an affair. Patty, who was married to Jack, shot him. Totally drunk, he admitted to Gina that Patty shot him and Jill dragged him back to the Abbott Mansion. That was at the same time that Gina met Lauren's father, Neil Fenmore (October 1983) and she was moved to this other storyline, not crossing Jack's path very much. 

Patty Weaver was taken off contract in late 1985 after the end of the Neil/Lauren/JoAnna storyline.

As a recurring character, she was moved back to Jack's orbit in 1986 as a friend for him after John discovered that Jack was the man in the infamous photographs of Jill and a mystery man having sex. Gina tried to convince Jack not to fall into alcoholism. I don't think there was more than friendship this time but she gave him this old room to stay for a while during the "Jill was shot" storyline. In the December 1986 classic we saw, Jack was ready to move back to the Abbott Mansion.

What a way to end the 1990s classics. I think this was one of the episodes that got Y&R the 1993 Best Drama Series Daytime Emmy.

That week of episodes garnered an 8.9 HH number. Y&R was dominate #1.

From what I've seen of the weekly ratings from the end of the 1988 writer's strike to the start of OJ, Y&R dominated all daytime dramas. Y&R saw it's dominance threatened in 1994-1997 with the aftermath of OJ and the huge rise of Reilly's Days. Oddly enough, Reilly's Days featured a good number of 1980s Y&R actors in major storylines: Deborah Adair, Eileen Davidson, Nick Benedict, Jaime Lyn Bauer, Lauren Koslow are the main ones that come to mind. Perhaps payback for Y&R bringing over 1970s Days actors in the first half of the 1980s.

More likely because of Tom Langan, who had been a producer at Y&R before joining DAYS. David Shaughnessy would take his producing spot when he left.

Kimberlin Brown was so brilliant.

If not for Ellen Parker giving the performance of her life that Emmy season, Kimberlin could have been a close contender for that Emmy.
