    Jason Thompson is a terrific actor but he just isn’t Billy Abbott for me. ): He has delivered good performances the past few weeks though.

    I was thinking about Michael Mealor’s Kyle and deciding that he really belongs in the Lead Actor category and not the supporting one. He has had more screen time that either Peter Bergman and Eric Braeden. Only Mark Grossman’s Adam has had more screen time lately.

    I am still finding the show to be mostly a snoozefest. Can they turn it around? They have the cast, the characters, and the history – now can they just find better writing and better stories for them to wow us?

    I typically read the day ahead spoilers and if it seems interesting, I’ll tune in. Unfortunately I haven’t tuned in for awhile. The stories just don’t seem that interesting to me. The characters are hard to root for. It’s kind of become the Kyle/Lola/Adam show.

    I’d love to see Paul/Christine and Michael/Lauren in good stories. I miss Dina, too. I’d like to see Tracy more (just without Cane!).

    Other then Neil’s death/funeral episodes, I can’t think of anything for Y&R to submit for the emmys.

    Y&R, for me, is somewhere around the intersection of boring and implausible. Not one story has me engaged right now, and few of the characters have rooting value. The show is being written (or so it seems) with the expectation that we will somehow care about characters who are, for the most part, self-absorbed, shallow, and unkind. Days and GH have their flaws, but overall I feel like those shows have a lot more heart than Y&R.

    I am struggling with Mishael Morgan’s return. Although I loved her first run, it takes a long time to develop a character to that sweet spot where they truly belong. Y&R invested five years in making Hilary first a viable and then nearly indispensable character. Now we have to start over with a new character, Amanda. Perhaps the character will eventually click… a year or two down the road.

    The storyline with Adam vs. the Newmans just does not feel authentic. I could cite the numerous plot holes, but that’s not the biggest problem. The bottom line is that I am just not buying it. I had reservations about bringing back Adam, and this current treatment of the characters has only served to confirm my initial concerns. Grossman is doing a great job holding his own with all the veterans; it’s the writing that is just not working for me.

    Billy’s rapid split personality and subsequent insta-cure came off as inane. Again, Thompson did a good job with his acting, but the material was weak at best.

    Wow, it’s been more than 3 weeks since anyone posted here! I am enjoying Dina’s memories of Stuart Brooks – a nice nod the the early years of Y&R. Any scenes with Marla Adams and/or Beth Maitland make me happy. While the acting is always good everybody seems to be stuck in dull stories that don’t go anywhere interesting right now….

    I have been puzzled as to why they bothered to bring Michelle Stafford back as Phyllis if they weren’t going to give her anything to do? She is wonderful when she is on an episode but I do hope they give her strong material soon!

    It must be frustrating to leave general hospital just when she would have stuff to do and get less time on YR than tognoni was getting!
