Went and looked up ages he is 27 CK is 29 also other pictures show him to be more mature looking will see just think Lilly and Cane need some pot stirring if they are going to continue on the show.

Relax, Kay. No one said he/she did not like it….we are discussing our feelings. Opining. Isn’t that the point? I would never stop watching, no matter what. Smile.
How did your volunteering go? It is fulfilling is it not? Does the body, mind and soul good.
Later, Kay.

I agree, Timmmy. Revolving door. Dylan isn’t even out yet, and already a new character is brough in.
Something will happen to Dylan– or so everyone will think.
As I said, the door is left open for an eventual Dylan return; whenever.

Stop it she has not fired anybody SB chose to leave probably he did not get the same cushy contract the dragon lady provided now relax take a deep breath give them a chance they have ten years of crap they have to sweep up! If actors can’t be patient then exit left she will get it straightened out it is not about YOU it is about the show

Y&R has always been slow character driven this is what she is getting back to if you do not like it for god sakes then turn it off I am thrilled that all of these characters are becoming themselves again is it slow hell yes but I am willing to sit by and watch them weave their magic! This is the writer who wrote Lauren being buried alive Cassie’s death etc etc ! Give her time

If they wanted to bring in a “photographer with serious swagger,” why didn’t they just bring back Malcolm? Even if Shemar Moore wasn’t available, they could recast the character as he already has deeply established roots to the canvas, and could be involved in both the Brash & Sassy story and Winters family drama.

That would have been a perfect idea, since I thought the new writers were trying to incorporate some past cast members into the new stories

Great point.

Shemar may not want to come back, Jimmy. There is that.

Rhonda

Great looking young man but that makes the third young new male character. GC needs some young women to come to town.
That cute computer nerd cannot be following Ashley around like a love struck puppy forever–give him a girl about his age!!

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

What about the female computer nerd that had the hots for Kevin, who was last seen working for Victor? They would have a lot in commen. She might be little pushy compared to his shyness, but it might be worth as shot

Celia

Natalie. Yes….whatever happened her her? It was like…poof–gone.

James R. Poissant

You’re talking about Natalie. I like the idea you just mentioned but to add some icing to this cake, how about if we have him somehow connected to Hillary? Just another reason for her to keep on being bitchy? That’s when Hillary works best for me!!!

Rhonda

Natalie would be terrific paired with Ravi. I love Ravi, do not want him paired with Ashley.

Celia

Sharon and Victor, my friend, was even worse. He is ancient compared to Sharon….HOW, I ask??

Celia
Celia

Hi, Rhonda,
I agree…NO ASHLEY. She’s old enough to be his mother. We’re not talking about about a few years, here. We’re talking decades. He’s 26. Thirty years!!!!!! Gross.
I like Ravi myself….. easy-going, good-looking guy. He is merely infatuated with Ashley. Maybe he has Mommy issues.
As a nerd, myself, LOL, I get him. He and Natalie would be perfect. But, I do not trust her.

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

Nothing against Ashley, because I have always loved her but putting them together would put them in the same gross factor as when Sharon slept with Victor. EEEWWW

why wasnt tyler brought back?
redaric had a front burner story with chrisal years back and the two were hot together
would have been fun to interact lily and cane and possibly stir things up even briefly
tyler was a photographer if i remember correctly and cane wasnt a fan..wld ve been perfect
tylers older sis leslie pops into genoa city once in a while ..it would be great to have tyler return every so often too…even to run into abby or mariah, lots of unfinished business

Jimmy

I completely forgot about Tyler, but that’s a good idea! I wasn’t much of a fan of the Michaelson family, mainly because their backstory had no connections to GC and seemed to be mostly an afterthought filler story, but Tyler dropped off the canvas with no explanation, and could have easily been reincorporated into the story.

Abby is single, unless they put him with Victoria. They love to put them young men with older ladies.

Tim…I AGREE…N-O!!! Now…speaking of Abby, WHAT IS UP with Abby’s (current) wardrobe?!?!? To me, it makes her look like a high school student…BLECH!!!!!!!!

Have a good one, dude.

Scott H

he will obviously turn out to be adopted and looking for his birth mom, who will turn out to be…wait for it….Drucilla….she had given birth to him before she made her appearance in Genoa City….he and Lily will bond and come to realization they are related….it will also turn out he was an adopted heir to Constance Bingham (Adam’s faux mom) and Hilary will jump him because he would be another billionaire to get her hooks into….thus creating conflict with him and Devon…..or maybe he’ll be a gay character and have a hot romance with Noah Newman….Noah hasn’t had any interesting storylines lately and maybe he’ll come to realize he’s gay because he cant make any relationships work with women……so he would be tied to the Winters and Newman clans….I know Sally Sussman is moving everyone around the board like chess pieces, but she needs to pick up the pace….it’s starting to get boring….don’t scream…i’ll give her six months but hope something exciting comes out soon…..

Celia
Celia

WOW, Scott!!!!! I love the way you think. What a good storyline that would make. Drucilla’s son. That’s a good seed to plant in the writers’ minds. Let’s hope it yields some fruit. One never knows….

Isn’t this character a man from Neil’s daughter past? Hoping it will be a good triangle. 🙂

Celia

That’s a fantastic premise, as well, Nik.

He could , aslso, be Hilary’s brother? Or a new beau, considering the fact that as soon as Devon snaps out of it, he will drop her in a blink.
I think TPTB are paving the way for Jack and Hilary to get romantically involved. I have seen this coming for a while.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
