Like many new head writers before her, Altman says the right things. We'll see, though...

I can understand them adding newer, younger characters, can't have everyone in the same age group.
I don't mind it if the younger actors actually have talent.
That's one reason I only watch Y&R, all the other soaps, imo, had such cheezy acting, and Y&R didn't.

Horrible + all lies.

How dare these people even say these things out loud? Do they have no shame?

I don't think she said any of the "right things". She's basically confirming all the bad things people have been talking about this show. It's disgusting.

Y&R now is a travesty. A mockery, and a mere shadow of the once Great show William J. Bell created.

I just think Y&R is incredibly unstable. Bill Bell trained Alden to be his successor and ever since Bell died, it has been one power struggle after another.

See that's another script that didn't have to be written, they printed it once, and each writer and producer dust it off and repeat it word for word.

"further root Dylan onto the canvas", we all knew that was happening :puke:
"going to see a stronger, healthier, Sharon approaching life and love and relationships in a different way", how many time are they going to tell us that and each time she gets a little worse :shrug:
"fix Y&R" :blah: :blah: :blah:

The casting has been very weak! I can name several characters who suck as actors: Carmine, Kyle, Abby, Mason, Courtney and the biggest one of all Dylan! SBu adds no dimension to the show. When he's not on I forget he's even part of the canvas! Little Faith acts circles around them all.

That's what I said, if they actually have talent, I'm okay with bringing in some new characters, but so far they haven't brought in many talented newbies.
Ita with your list, except for Dylan, I think he might be better with a more interesting script.

It was mentioned that they're going to keep the one who plays Hillary/Ann too, that she's not really "bad" just mourning her mother, excuse after how many years? so we have to put up with her too and she doesn't add anything to the canvas at all.

Thank God Faith isn't on much either. I'd have to have a priest near to perform and exorcism on my television.

I agree about Hillary and the "mourning", sorry honey, your mom was a drunk and she and she alone, drank herself to death.
A friend of mine did this, she daily consumed a half gallon of vodka, one day, her husband came home to find her dead in her bed, with her half finished bottle of vodka by her side.
It's very sad, but no one's fault except the person doing the drinking.
They have let the Gus connection drop, no one is even mentioned in months.

I dont think SBu can do anything different from his usual Jason performance. While I rejoiced at his departure from GH, I turned around only to want to jump off a bridge at him joining Y&R!! LOL :drunk:

Btw I was agreeing with you there. I also wouldn't have a problem with newbies if they actually brought in actors of a certain caliber. However JFP is only interested in what looks good and cheap. All the actors who have talent were already part of the show before she joined.
