Be that as it may, Timmm, I am not digging Jason as Billy on Y&R. Billy would not have hurt Victoria personally that way….her legacy. Yes, Billy would hurt Victoria in other ways…drinking, gambling; that’s a given. But, not like this. I do not like Jason’s version of Billy at all. Of course, it is not his fault. He is under the writer’s direction. That is the crux of the matter, Timmm. Why are TPTB suddenly writing Billy as a different character, yet again? Are they experimenting? None of the previous Billys, even Burgess would not hurt Victoria with such… Read more »

Here is the one thousandth reason I dont gamble, Jason Thompson as Billy is a bust! I Never thought I would type that line! I doesnt bother me because he is a very good actor and I think he is an upgrade from Burgess but I gave it a little time and I agree with you, not digging it at all. I also agree with you that some of this is a writing issue. I guess in their minds they figure, new actor, new Billy. The problem with that is they are not staying true to the character and Jason… Read more »

@Timmm.
What a beautiful, well thought-out post, my Timmmy. Thank you for that.
Yes, we agree on everything. I do see what you are saying, in that, Jack is being molded into John, his father. Makes sense.
But, I cannot shake my dislike for him. To be honest? I prefer Victor to Jack, albeit my reasoning sounds somewhat screwed up, lol, I do not like Jack one bit.
This is the writers’ fault for putting Jack in a more youthful role than his age. And, Gina is too young for him….luv-ya.

Jason is a talented actor and I really do like him but, for me, he is just NOT Billy Abbott any more than Burgess Jenkins was. I guess Miller created a character that’s impossible to replicate, although he’s pretty much sleepwalking through GH.

I would bet that any GH fan would gladly trade Billy MIller to have EITHER Jason or Steve Burton back. But it doesn’t work that way does it.

I thought it would work but it seems to have lost any possibilities!

I was so excited about Jason when he first began as new Billy.
Such charisma and all. But lately, not as thrilled. I would love
to see him in a more interesting storyline than the same old
back and forth with his game playing with Victoria, and definitely
dont want him with Phyllis, as it seems to be heading in that
direction. Anyway, Billy lately bores me.

I have really not watched it much since he first started when he was in the coma but has he even had a scene with Jess/Jill since he came out. I think maybe they should have shelved the character for a while and then brought him on. Funny Miller brought the charm to the character he leaves goes to GH and sleep walks as Jason. I will say it again thousands of times again some actors make an impact as one character and just can’t get past it ! The
