The hearings have been on, no soaps, and I havent missed Y&R ONE bit! I hope Eric is right AND THE SHOW STARTS BECOMING INTERESTING AGAIN!

Here is my impeachment list for Y&R:
Theo
Devon
Fake Hillary [Must be that name!]
Messa [Tessa!]
Rey

Here is my reinstatement list:
Billy-Who is this guy?
Phyllis-Grow up!
Elena-She is a talented actress. They wasted her on GH and now they are wasting her on Y&R!

Soaphound

Timmm, I love that Theo is atop your list and I agree with everything you say, though I’d swap Rey for Elena.. she is a good actress but wasted on Dreary Devon. Maybe toss in Chance too… He couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag. An actor should be more than nice hair.

Timmm
Timmm

Awww, come on, you’d run your fingers through Chance’s hair!

Soaphound

No way, Timmm. Hair-wise, I’ll take Nick or Kyle any day. Or night. How about Theo’s rat’s nest? Surgical gloves, please!

Timmm
Timmm

Two good choices AND yes, Theo is a grease ball!

Celia

LOL, Soaphound—I agree—love Nick’s hair—and, I’m starting to like Kyle’s pompador-do. It’s back!! My husband actually sports a mini pomp!! I don’t know if I like it yet. LOL.

Celia
Celia

LOL, T, —I do not like Chance; nor his fake hair. Abby is getting on my nerves as well, lately—-she never seems to learn her lesson with men. Then again, I am not too ‘fond’ of bed-hopping. One’s enough for me—HaHa. I suppose I am well-satisfied! PRRRR.
Their unsteamy interlude did nothing for me–neither of them is sexy—–at this juncture; the sexiest woman on soaps is Ava Jerome–and her counterpart? Nikolas. I don’t know what it is about this guy—he just…well, you know!! LOL.

Soaphound
Soaphound

C., I’m with you on Ava & naughty Nikolas. Can’t wait to see where it goes (besides the boudoir). That and Nelle returning are the things keeping me happy. I’m on Peter Puke overload. Now he wants to off Jason and Spinelli? Enough of this dodo bird!

Celia
Celia

Yes!! I admire Nelle her spunk and in-your-face audacity. She definitely has something to say—especially to Carly—looking forward to seeing that.
I do agree with Joe, though—Is Nelle back for good? If so, let’s get the plots moving with Wiley, Brad, Willow as Nina’s daughter ( and possibly Sasha’s twin)—-I don’t feel as foolish knowing someone else thinks Willow is Nina’s. Jimh had agreed with me, too.
These stories should finally have an ending. I’ve missed a few episodes, yet I didn’t really miss a thing. It seems that, except for the mafia-wars, everything is frozen in place.
I also heard, through the grapevine, Helena is “returning”—not sure if in spirit or in physical form.
The Sonny/Carly/Jason/Sam saga is a vicious circle—repetitive, dry, insipid, unpalatable and redundant. We know what will happen. Sonny and Jason will be the heroes, when all this idiocy is said and done….with Carly and Sam fawning over them. And Sonny has custody of Avery???? O-K—right….

Timmm

I like Chance and Abby together. Look at it this way, remember Lulu on GH used to play Abby on Y&R. What a disaster! I think this Abby is much better. Bed hopping? Not a fan but its a soap! I look at Abby, Phyllis and Chelsea as the female Three Stooges! Its funny to watch them bumble over each other!

Sexiest female. Ava isnt a bad choice but she is a drunk! I cannot beleive you like NuNick. I cannot stand him. He ruined the character’s comeback! Also, he has no sex appeal. Jax is the man! I like Willow. She isnt sexy but cute.

Celia
Celia

LOL, T—-Nikolas is not my type–I like the tall, broad-shouldered type. But, as I said on another comment, there’s something about Marcus—the Italian half of him stirs the imagination and senses—-..can’t put my finger on it. It’s one of things, I guess–Marcus has the goods for me. To each his/her own, I guess.
Those full, well-shaped lips beckon. I’ll stop there—-I’m a good girl–HaHa.
As far as Abby, I know you’ve always liked her. I do, too—-far cry from Emme. But, the PTB are not doing her justice, either. She is reduced to a mere failure with men—her possibilities keep getting curtailed. It’s like ye gods don’t know what her place is or what to do with her. Every male newcomer seems to have a spin with her which eventually falls into oblivion….Not the character’s fault.
Ava may be a drunk—but what a drunk she makes!! Every move, every word, every sinew, every look is perfection in motion. And, there’s sexual tension in the air. Wait and see. She and Nikolas may be going through the motions for the sake of others; but the wantonness and sensuality is omnipresent when together. Don’t you see the sparks whenever any parts of their bodies touch? LOL. Their fingertiips? Their cheeks? Even when their eyes lock, I see “fiyah”—!!
I am telling you, T—this is acting acting to the core—-they’ve got IT!!
Maura better win again—-or else. LOL.

Soaphound

I know we may be in a minority right now, Celia, but Marcus gets my blood, uh, boiling too. I’d spend a week in that hair alone. And his voice is sexy, too, like my great passion, Billy Miller. And Maura West get keeps getting better… this story seems to have REALLY lit a fire in her. Can you blame her? I, too, like Melissa Ordway but feel that Abby is backsliding into yet ANOTHER man with secrets. And the nuChance actor is not on her level, either.

Celia
Celia

Hey, Soaphound,
So glad someone sees what I see.
Ahhhh—Billy, where art thou, Billy?!?!?!
I know what you mean….yum!!
No one compares to Maura—I have such a girl-crush on her—as I do on Stafford. But, it’s slowly fading. Msura is on my pedestal now. LOL.
I actually feel badly for Abby. She deserves better. I do not like this Chance. Do you remember the last actor who played Chance? He was another Adonis—-this new guy is too “Tarzan-ish” looking—in a bad way—“Ain’t” ‘gonna’ last either.
Then, there’s Kyle. It seems that the writers took a page from my book, with all due respect and humility.
When the ‘romance’ between Lola and Kyle began, I verbalized the exact words Kyle ‘repeated’ to Jack —–
Why the turnabout?? Perhaps, it’s to give Theo meat? It won’t matter—not to me. Plus, I still think he has an agenda…..Not Jack’s nephew.

Timmm
Timmm

I’m telling your husband on you! LOL!

Celia
Celia

HaHa, T—-harmless words—
I vocalize my thoughts—-
Captivating one’s interest doesn’t always have to be good looks….a great personality, good sense of humor etc. go a long way, albeit Marcus/Nikolas is simply too sexy.
We do admire works of art—not always perfect. Sometimes, the imperfection is what makes someone or something unique—eg. LA GIOCONDA—not a beautiful woman—thin lips, aquiline nose—yet, that mysterious smile draws the admirer in. Yes??
More to the point, as jaded as Ava is, Nikolas is a wolf. Reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood ( song by Sam the Sham) which my husband has been singing to me since I was fourteen. LOL. And, calls me a spitfire, to boot.
We all know Ava is no innocent babe in the woods, but she certainly seems to lose all her defenses against the WOLF!!
Did you notice how discombobulated she was after their seemingly fake, intimate interlude, at the hospital? She was visibly shaken and confused by her reaction to Nikolas—-as if her own body betrayed her. She instinctively responded to his touch. That’s what I call superlative acting. Love this woman’s skill!!

Timmm
Timmm

You are such an old soul! Pulling Sam the Sham out of thin air! Great stuff! Ava is going to tease Nick into cheating and or hire a women to seduce him in order to inherit the Cassadine fortune!

Soaphound
Soaphound

I’m glad you mentioned this, Timmm. For a minute, I thought Sam the Sham referred to Sam Morgan’s private eye abilities. My bad.

Celia
Celia

Oh, Lordy-Lord, Soaphound!! I just noticed your post. Too funny—very fitting, eh? Sam The Sham Morgan. It took Epiphany to shake Sam out of her teen-age-head-in-the-clouds. A mother in her forties acting like a lovesick …uh, “puppy” in the first throes of adolescent love.
Private eye? Her eye’s on Jason—it seems everyone (and everything) else is of no conswquence. Mamma mia.

Celia
Celia

I guess I AM an old soul, T—thanks to my Gran who is still a flower-child at heart. I grew up listening to her music—60’s and 70’s—including THE DOOR, VANILLA FUDGE, QUEEN, BLACK SABBATH, IRON BUTTERFLY, FREE etc.– and, much of the 80’s–all of it!!
As far as Hunter King, I did read about her new venture. I hope she stays on Y&R—-I am finally fond of the character. Summer has grown up—selfless, at last.
Perhaps she and Kyle will take off on a business trip together ( for the time of Hunter’s filming) —or taking off to places unknown —to gather their thoughts, to re-connect and to concentrate on their feelings and future?
DOOL is ridding itself of so many faves, T—-Fingers crossed the same doesn’t happen at Y&R.

Timmm
Timmm

Can you believe WE finally like Summer and she may leave??? She has grown up. I still dont like this Kyle but what can you do. Lola can do much better. Not a fan of Rey BUT, I do like the way he laid into Kyle. Good scene! Have a LOVEly Valentines Day!

Celia
Celia

I have never liked Kyle, T—-except for his hair. I don’t find him oh-so-hunky either, albeit many do.
Rey is slowly ‘coming around’ for me—-a big jump from the character (Dario) he played on Days. However, I am in agreement with many who said that both Y&R and DOOL are fahhlliiing—downhill trend, if you ask me.

Celia
Celia

The DoorS–oops.
PS…I like the idea of having Hayley Erin back, T. Great idea!!

Celia
Celia

Yesssss, Timmmy!! Every word, every phrase, every thought is on target.
You know how much I love Stafford, but her character is now bordering on the ridiculous.
Theo needs to go….Devon is of no import except waiting around until Colin is “captureed”?? Bah!!
Billy makes me sick…..spoiled brat that he is. He really needs to grow up. So far, Victor is the only one who makes the show bearable ( and Mariah)….I hope Tessa never comes back
For interest sake: I said, from the onset, that Kyle and Lola would not last—-it was a passing fancy for Kyle because Lola was “different”—-apart from what his elite life represented. I also said, Kyle and Summer would end up together again soon enough.
I don’t know why Amanda was introduced—-at first, I thought she was there for Devon—a Hilary reencarnation. Now? I don’t know. I like the actress, so if she is to stay, the writers better give her a story worth watching….and, one she deserves.

Soaphound
Soaphound

As always, Celia, you read my mind, though I admit I had hopes for Lola and Kyle. Maybe Phyllis will grow up now that Sharon’s cancer seems to have broadsided her. She stepped up to Jack’s addiction…maybe this will bring out the “human” side that Nick claims she possesses. Now, more of the Amanda debacle with the ex showing up! Fast Forward, please.

Celia
Celia

I found Lola and Kyle too passive, Soaphound. I did not get the ‘bite’; the furor, if you will, of two young people madly in love—Perhaps, TPTB saw the lack of chemistry between them, thus they changed the “pace”—- comparatively speaking; Summer and Kyle have always had that mysterious, intangible, yet tangible IT factor . Some actors, when brought together in a certain role, the magnetism is palpable.
The passion was so evidently elusive between Lola and Kyle. I only hope Summer does not go back to her bratty, elitist ways. I like her new ‘righteous’ ( that’s a joke-aha), subdued persona.
But, Theo? Everything about him irritates me……especially the way he pronounces his ‘S’. So, if ye gods plan to pair him with Lola? It will be sacrilegious. LOL. I like Lola—just not with Theo.

Timmm
Timmm

Is Summer out the door? Well, maybe Hunter King is. It was just announced she got the lead role in a new pilot for ABC called “Prospect.” Its a pilot so maybe they back burner her until she finds out if the series is picked up. Maybe they recast and hire the old Abby, Hayley Erin?

Kay

He is the only guy I know that just blasts them and gets away with it!! I adore him for that he is right I wish he could wave a magic wand and correct all the wrongs that have been done to a soap that he loves!! I don’t always agree with him on issues but I have never doubted he cares very much about this soap ! My only request is grab somebody and call them your sweetheart he had such off the charts chemistry with Sharon Case I sooo want him to be involved with her cancer storyline whatever happened years ago just forgive and give us back the best daughter in law relationship this show has ever had I sooo miss those days I sooo miss their wonderful chemistry ! Just do it besides Nikki he had the best chemistry ever with case please forgive and give us that back !!! It’s never too late

Kay
Kay

He is one of the few actors that owns his character he breathes it you hardly know where Braeden ends and Victor begins he should be always leading story just as Jack and Paul you need as a hw need to get those three front and center then build your characters around them

MARK Y

I totally agree with you about Victor and Sharon. When I started watching Victor and Dru were the only ones in her corner.

Kay
Kay

Mark you missed wonderful storylines I never saw two people who played off each other i hate that they don’t share the screen together anymore I hate that we can’t work out our problems and move on you are cheating a audience of a great relationship I for one am very sad ! Braeden needs to stop this in its tracks an give my girl a good hug ! You can find it on you tube when case won supporting in 1999 and him hugging her he loved her dearly ! I want that back

Lew S.

So hope this is true! Blast me if you like, but I’ve had enough of the Kyle and Theo Show! Jack and Victor they are not! Let us get to know the characters on the canvas, but introducing a boat load of new ones!!

Soaphound
Soaphound

Lew, you are SO RIGHT! I feel like a broken record but the powers that be apparently don’t care. Theo is a scene-downer like Devon and we need to get back to our core characters. Start writing for the Baldwin/Fisher family, more Jack and Traci, Gloria, Fen, Paul & Christine.

Y&R had hit bottom in my opinion…I quit watching years ago and started watching again when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden was rehired, I even stuck with it during Mal Young which i wasn’t please when Sally and Kay were let go…Josh Griffith writing is DULLSVILLE…I will say it again till the day I die…I think the world of Mike Dobson (Music Director) but I do not care for Y&R background music if Y&R wanted to they could bring back all the old music score that meant the world to this show…The writing, directing and music are lacking so the powers that be for CBS, PLEASE listen…My 2 favorites now are B&B and GH…
NOTE: There is NOTHING exciting IMO that is going on at Y&R and I don’t watch on a regular basis and I catch the show now and then and I don’t even care if I miss it…

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Courtesy/ABC

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
