Her delusions aside (and maybe even because of them),  with the right person, she could be a great and revealing interview.

 

Alan Locher is not the right person, though.

Who we need is someone like Michael Logan or Carolyn Hinsey.

I was about to post this in a separate thread. Jill is going to chew and spit him out. Too bad we don't have someone better to give this interview.

I'm curious about this too.

 

I'd love to see her more but it would also require having a kid on the canvas, IMHO. One who's played by a likeable un-problematic actor.

 

I love all three and think they should be featured way more than they are but I'm assuming it's by choice (clearly it is with Walton and Maitland is just thrilled to be there).

 

I'd argue they could do more with all of them, they don't need to be leading a story 4 days a week but Y&R and (and for example GH) could use their vets in much more strongly supporting ways, if that makes sense. But I know a lot of factors play behind the scenes. Scheduling, budget, availability of the actors ...

It was nice to see Victor have a civil conversation with Amanda today.  He doesn't have those very often.


The only problem is that I have no clue as to what the Amanda / Sutton storyline is about. It’s a convoluted mess of things that happened offscreen, and I just can’t follow it — so I have no reason to care.

 

The entire story is a damn disaster.

On May 30th, I said this:

 

With Tara, it’s almost a certainty she’ll end up a different character. They didn’t have Ashland warn Jack about her for no reason’ 

 

At this rate, any of us could write a more compelling, less predictable version of Y&R

 

… Well, maybe not me (because I got the potential scenario wrong ) but many on here could.

The dialogue on this show is so clunky and labored. It’s as if someone told them to write the show like a stiff Victorian costume drama.

 

It’s clear they’re setting up the Lockes to be snakes in the grass, with eyes potentially both on Jabot and NE. They could not have laid the groundwork more poorly for this, though.

At least Tara has finally been given something interesting to do, her threatening Summer was at least something fun to watch in spite of the horrid dialogue.

 

Abby’s story remains a dumpster fire. Not even Tricia Cast can save this mess.

I'll admit that while I am still not sold on the acting choice of playing Tara with that calm cold flat affect (potentially sociopathic?), the "Oh sweetie" cracked me up.
Honestly, I wish more people would openly mock characters like Kyle and Summer who are playing make-believe adults and actually are in way over their heads. It would make it almost tolerable that most other characters seem to take them seriously.
A little bit of self-aware humor would do the show some good. You can't play everything that straight when the writing is that boring.

Kyle and Summer is such worthless pairing that has never ever worked for the last eight years no matter who was playing Kyle. At least Lachlan gets to play himself in Dynasty nowadays, which is not a bad thing at all.

 

In fact the show had put so much stock into Kyle & Lola I think that’s why this pairing is flagging so fast. Not to mention getting rid of Theo so quick was such a massive mistake.
