My reaction to current Y&R ...

I'm not a huge fan of RC or his style of writing, but out of the remaining HW's left he is definitely up there. Tomlin is doing a bad job at Days. Brad Bell, who I would say IS a better writer than RC overall, is off his game and has been for a few years now. Josh Griffith is pretty good, but he's just began at Y&R so we'll have to see how his tenure goes.

Doesn't mean he's good. It's all up for interpretation.

His GH is riddled with retcons, forced humour, and weird pacing. He never gets the type of blame other writers get for the same mistakes from the soap press.

The dialogue on his shows also tend to be really contrived, forced, and heavy handed.
RC keeps things WAY too light in the dialogue byt trying to add comedy which doesn't always work. OLTL near the end was one big joke imo with the outrageous plots and the dialogue.

Well whatever he's doing, its got me watching GH again and enjoying it. More than I can say for B&B and Days which I have stopped watching. Y&R has improved a bit over the MAB era so I'll wait and see how it goes as well.

I still won't watch GH until they give my favourite character (Elizabeth) a real storyline. She is so underused on that show, it makes me ill. But the show is better than it was for the past few years.

I know this is an unpopular opinion but GH is a hot mess, imo. All the stunt casting is reminding me of what mab was doing with yr. I don't think any of the couples he has put together are interesting. The pacing is horrible.

I quit watching GH when it became the Sonny and Jason show, they got rid of the Q's and Bobbie just so Jason could be a thug and Sonny well there's no hope for him at all. I won't watch even my favorites on there as long as Sonny remains the head character, I was so glad when they got rid of Bob Guza but I guess it hasn't improved any.

You'd be surprised. Sonny, like Phyllis, has been on much less recently and now that Jason is gone (hurray!) I think it'll be less of the thug show. Also seems like the Q are getting more airtime with AJ back. Now if only they could get Liz back on track and not flip flopping btwn baby daddies.

I've been looking for a storyline to get me back into Y&R. This isn't it... I haven't enjoyed watching a story like this since Rick's bullying/school shooting that happened during the earlier seasons of DTNG.

Wow, the same storyline happened on OLTL with Jack and Shane. What was the end result of that storyline for the bully? no punishment for for the bully and only counseling for the victim.

Summer and that kid will probably fall in love, then he'll find out what she did and it will be all over with a lot of boo-hooing.

They picked a FANTASTIC actress to play Summer on Y&R. She embodies all the bratty, bitchy characteristics that would make a real-life teenage bully so disgusting. Plus, Summer is becoming equally as nauseating as her trampy, hypocritical mother, Syphallus Newman. It's like they are literally the same person, a few decades apart. Syphalllus was probably equally as cringe-inducing when she was Summer's age!

I am ready for both mother and daughter to fall HARD........as both make me want to vomit.

P.S- This feeling extends to the CHARACTERS only. Michelle and Whatshername are both doing superb. Finally, the casting director over at that place did something right. It's amazing what one can do when they remove their head from their butt!!!

The casting director didn't get it right. JFP and Griffith picked Haley King having know her already from HH.

Well, regardless of WHO got it right, someone got it right. ;)

I don't watch Hollywood Heights, so I totally had no idea she was on it. Thanks for the correction.
