I love Justin Hartley as the new Adam Newman, he is sexy and a wonderful actor. Also I love Kelly Sullivan as Sage, I smell a Romance brewing for Nick and Sage.

Steve Burton/Dylan McAvoy & Sean Carrigan/Ben “Stitch” Rayburn and their storylines are the main reasons I watch Y&R!

I am enjoying Avery and Joe. I would have loved yesterday’s reveal episode but was it filmed differently than previous episodes? The dialogue was off too. Made it almost unwatchable for me?

I could like Avery and Joe if Joe didn’t, to me, come off like he is a potential rapist.

At times he seems charming, but when he is not getting what he wants, he gets mean or at least his facial affect appears to be.

Not liking this predictable story line with Nick. He is such a douche right now! All of those promises he made to Sharon…. he’s very unlikeable to watch for me. Not only that, but they’re just rehashing the “Nick died in a plane crash” storyline from several years back. Remember then a beautiful young woman nursed Nick back to health and he was romantically linked to her? Sage is just the latest in a long line. Here’s a great way to make Nick interesting: he just confessed he’s done with women, so let him explore other sides of his sexuality!… Read more »

I’ve never been a huge fan of Y&R, but it is on fire lately. Justin Hartley is knocking it out of the park — charming with just the right cockiness with that remnant of hurt underneath. Gina Tognoni is a force of nature. I like this socially relevant plot about developers destroying neighborhoods for profit. There’s more life in this show than I’ve seen in 2 years. Way to go.

People who tuned out have tuned in to see new Phyllis and new Adam, hope they stay, but they may not hang in there unless Pratt can deliver some good stories..
((Y&R hopefully will get better when Pratt’s stories appear..
I like Victor and hope he gets written into bastard mode, again 🙂 that would be good..

It’s great news for Y&R..So happy for the show, it is doing so much better..It really boggles my mind that no mention of Corey Sligh brutal attack at RiteAid on Thanksgiving Day.

Fans & ex fans of the show came back to see the new Phyllis, Adam as well as Billy. I love the new Billy & the new Phyllis is knocking it out of the park. I really like the new Adam but I want to wait until I see him with Sharon. It’s hard to beat Shadam. I still remember them in New Orleans near the angel. That was nothing less than magic. I like to watch the video of it on Sharon Case twitter. I hope this Adam can be as successful with Sharon.

Nikki, I can get on board with Nu Phyllis and Nu Adam but the Nu Billy is terrible. He is not “Billy” and never will be. He is a wimpy poor version of the vibrant, bold “Billy” we all came to love.

I have to tell you Toscanti, you made me laugh. I thought the same way for the first while but as I got used to him he grew on me, now I think he’s kinda cute but I don’t like him with Victoria at all. I really like him with Chelsea. You sound like me only with that Summer. I just can’t stand her. The way she talks, walks, holds herself yuck. She makes me think of an amazon, & she’s about as sexy as a toad. If & when they bring back Kyle I hope they find a new… Read more »

With the new Adam and Phyllis, the more “fun” story lines can happen. I like the new Adam, Phyllis, and Billy. Dylan and Avery are still stiff but have relaxed a little. Dylan and Avery should be matched with really good actors who can pull them out of their “stiff” mode. I feel so sorry for Nikki, she is wrapped tighter than a drum. Nikki looks so miserable in her tight clothes….unclench this woman, let her breathe! Overall, I think Y&R is great. Keep it up, I am loving it.

I’m glad that the current writers delivered these numbers right before Pratt’s stuff airs in 2015. I hope he’s realized he can’t come in and destroy the history of the show.

Those grass roots efforts clamoring for the firing of JFP are probably cringing when they see these numbers. Say what they want, she must be doing something right.

I can’t wait for Adam and Cbelsea to start up again. I hope the chemistry she shared with MM is there as well. My favorite time for them was when Adam was helping Chesea study for her G.E.D. Which eventually ended with them dancing in the rain in the dress her bought for her and proposing Classic soap opera. I am loving the new Adam. Why they got rid of Heather Thom’s brother is beyond me. He was more bearable then this guy. This actor seems to old to be Billy. He comes off as to fake and plastic.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.
