Didn't they just cut Lipton to recurring?  He's literally the best teen on the current canvas.

I hadnt heard but Is the actor college bound? Maybe he requested recurring. Dunno havent read this anywhere

Yeah. But nobody knows if the show cut him or if it was his decision. It would be a huge mistake to let him go. Out of the male teen actors that Frank's tried to force on us, he's by far the most talented. He really should have been given his own storylines.

As for teens and teen stories like dating/sex: Could their real life folks be vetoing that. I mean they are all 18. This is when Frank would usually have the teens go shirtless but so far nada for Cam

Perhaps. But why hire them then?  Isn't it part of the deal?  Not trying to be controversial but hire a 21 year old instead if that's an issue.   They are all good actors, but if age is holding them back from having real stories recast.  It never stopped KMC/Robin.  And she looked like a little girl for a long time...She genuinely looked 5 years younger at least than Brenda, Stone and Jason but they gave her those stories..

I thought he was OTT today, but he's good and attractive.  I hope it's his decision to leave.

Didn’t stop FV from giving KA/Starr heavy story either on OLTL.

Correct, but that might have been RC.  KA looked about 12 when pregnant.   I don't have a problem with any of these teen actors, but why aren't they doing anything fun?  

 

They are tamer and more well behaved than any teen I know and better than most of us in high school and I am not that old lol

Agreed. Like I don’t expect them to be like the drugged-out, sexed-up kids from Euphoria, but the Bad News Bears got up to more hijinks than Cam, Joss, and Trina.

True. I love the Cam/Joss/Trina friendship, but for the most part, they're boring. And they're all too talented to be wasted like that. I really think they could pull off a serious storyline that depicts what teenagers really have to deal with.

 

I'm not saying that Cam has to be constantly shirtless or Joss and Trina have to be trying to seduce him or something, but at least give them something serious to do.

I would be nice. If they were allowed to be kids and have fun. Seeing them mix it up with other kids. Don't expect them to act like the kids from the Spaniard series Elite. GH could easily add another teen or two. So far they have mostly dealt with death.

It doesn't have to be debauchery or anything, but like smoke a cigarette or have sex.  It isn't the 50's lol.  Like Brenda and Jagger were banging in the nurse's office 30 years ago and handing out condoms, but this teen scene just...talks a lot lol.

Soaps have gotten way more conservative in so many different ways. I guess their audience is so old nowadays, but those very people were watching when things were racier.

I would add a recast Spencer and Lila Rae to the young adult scene when they all head to PCU soon. Or if not Lila Rae maybe Gia had a daughter or son who comes to attend college in New York. 

That's a rumor so far; that we're getting an aged recast Spencer.

I get it.  But why have a teen scene then?  It sounds really bad but these teens aren't like anyone i ever knew.  But Brenda/Jagger/Karen/Jason were hot.  Liz/Lucky/Nik/Emily not as hot but still amazing.  Why can't we do this again?  They are so puritan it's annoying.  Maybe they can hire a bad girl that shakes things up (ala Brenda)?

I would love a random Nik/Gia spawn.......

Agreed, Brenda, Robin, Jason Karen etc were more interesting than the current teens.

 

I guess when adult actors play teenagers the storylines tend to be better (outside GH: as was the case with Nick Sharon Matt Amy etc on Y&R). When it was early Billy Mac and Ralph the storylines were still interesting but a lot more tame.

 

I second that. The teen scene on OLTL, among its flaws, did indeed drive plot

FINALLY!!! Watching the wedding episodes.

 

And I at least have to say that clever twist seeing Anna/Valentin had some form of a plan after all. I figured it was all just going to be on Dr. O. But thankfully, they tried to do something. A great delay tactic and allows for the wedding to run all week...like soaps used to do with weddings.

 

Good to see Spinelli. Also good that Felicia got a mention. Not to mention seeing Mac and Robert together.

 

Liz, I love you, but shut up.

Yeah. It was clever the way they dragged it out.

 

I do have to say, despite all the flaws in the storylines, all of these episodes have been really good.
