Sorry to sound like a broken record, I still miss the classic background music…I so enjoyed watching the classic episode and I recorded it so I can go back and watch and listen to how much better the music score use to be. I don’t mind them not using background music but when they do, the music score needs to match the scene and what they use now doesn’t.

You are so right Kevin C that is the ONE THING that is missing from this show! Even some new musical scores put together or the old music people hired back adding old and new would do it for me. The music was so good on Y&R that it was it’s own character, and it seems like a logical step since they’ve done everything else to return the show back to it’s former glory. This is an an American soap, not Eastenders like the producer is used to.

Thanks Dante, I so appreciate your support and your understanding on this issue…I agree with you on what you said on all accounts. I so wish they would hire Jack Allocco and David Kurtz back so they can do like you mentioned to add some new musical scores with the old then Y&R would be complete.

WHOAHOOO!
Dylan is getting some strange! Good for him..
Now he’ll find out there is much better than Sharon to get on with ..
It’ll be really good that when Dylan returns he looks at Sharon and askes;
”hey woman you up !!”
Now that would be awesome and rattling the chain that he had strange!

Anyways.. happy Dylan/Steve will soon be off to better, that is very good for him..
And Sharon will have another 25yrs of the same old .. lol
((I wonder who her next victim will be. For godsakes Not poor Nick, again))

I think I will miss the more rugged and mysterious Dylan. I think there are stories to tell for Dylan under the pen of SSM and KA. Even, if not – at Y&R – Steve Burton needs to be on a screen with good material.

No, not interested in this storyline. Frankly, I don’t really care now that Dylan has left GC. He looks like some seventies guy.

Celia

Yes, I agree. I am already bored, Mo. I am also very confused by the story and the woman……will Dylan be characterizing James, James Bond–007; or Maxwell Smart?

Rob

this just scares me into thinking the pointless character of Dylan will be recast.

Like the idea of Dylan going on a undercoveer assignment to cover his leaving. It is way better than killing the character off and then returning at a later date. He Y&R will bring back Adam (Michael Muhney). Please.

Love seeing a totally different look for Steve Burton. Too bad we had to wait for his run to end for us to get it. I would have loved to see that edge come out before

I agree Joanne. I still feel like there is more to tell with him and Sharon. What that more is I don’t know. Maybe it will make sense when the story is completely finished. I wonder what Sharon’s reaction will be

Not saying I like Dylan making out with Jessica (dark haired sexy woman), but I am also happy seeing this other side to Steve Burton as an actor. Because as Dylan, and even as Jason (stone cold) on GH he has been mostly one- dimensional. Too bad for undercover Dylan leaving…he was finally getting interesting.

I’ve grown to love Sharon & Dylan together. I’ll
Miss Steve at YR. I’m loving Gloria, hopefully Jeffrey
Will show up.

Why does Y&R think we want to see Dylan cheat on Sharon?

Also, why didn’t the cops send a single cop? No volunteers? Whatev.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yeah, why? As far as the “cheating”, maybe TPTB have a plan…as it was already suggested, Sharon will cheat on Dylan with Nick. Could the fact that she thinks Dylan cheated be the result of her cheating?…..
….One never knows what the soap gods will have Sharon do next.

This feels very uncharacteristic of Dylan and what we’ve been lead to believe he is as a character.

Celia
Guest
Celia

That’s what is sooo confusing for me, Scott. I do want Dylan to come back to Sharon ( even as a recast); but having a supposed cop become an actor lends to the idea that he is entering another dimension…..THE TWILIGHT ZONE?
I suppose I shouldn’t speak too soon, but I thought Steve was leaving?
Could this Webb woman be the link to the bad guy? And, could the bad guy be Fenmore’s sabateur?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Please note that by “actor”, I do not mean as in ‘theater.’…but, as in espionage.
Dylan never had the traning of the police Academy and went straight to detective, Doesn’t that mean going through years of being a cop and gaining ” boy scouting” points?
Now, he’s a spy? Too much to digest. He’s an incumbent; so, he does not have the training for that.
District Attorney’s investigators are an ‘elite’ group. Please make it real, soap or no soap. It’s not believable….as I said, only on a different planet.

I am fast forwarding through the scenes. I am not enjoying them. They have no relevance to what is going on in GC. Why is a Wisconsin cop in Miami? I don’t even understand what his assignment is. The whole story makes no sense. And apparently, TPTB didn’t do their research because they didn’t know Alex is a woman. I hope the storyline ends soon!

And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?
