UPDATE: Be sure to scroll down to see video of Y&R cast members Bryton James (Devon) and Mishael Morgan answer fans questions
*In the picture above, Phyllis Newman (formerly played brilliantly by Michelle Stafford) had fought with Drucilla Winters (played engagingly by Victoria Rowell), before Winters fell off the cliff. Never to be heard from again. Fans of Y&R were left to wonder: Did Drucilla die? Or has she lost her memory and started a new life somewhere? I HATE loose ends!!! Die hard fans of The Young & The Restless don’t even front, I know you’re out there. I just know we have some readers who are true hard core Y&R fans that have been watching the show for the past er, uh, wait, I’m not falling for that one…umpteen years But am I the only one who is noticing the story lines have gotten a lot stronger? There are obviously new writers who are starting to pack a punch!
With that said, I’m through talking about scenes to a computer that can’t talk back. It can’t respond when I tell it I have a problem with what Jack said; what Phyllis had the nerve to do now, and what Devon was obviously thinking with when he decided to cheat with his father’s wife?
It can’t speculate with me as I wonder if old wounds will EVER heal and the on-again-off again campaign for a certain actress to return to the show…even as a GHOST periodically, will ever happen.
In other words, I want to talk about it..with YOU!
Wouldn’t you love to hear from the cast themselves. For example, Eric Braeden, who as fans know originated the role of the notorious “Victor Newman” (and probably gets writer’s credit by now), loves the new head writer, and the direction the show is taking.
“I am happy with the show and with what Chuck Pratt has been doing. Very happy. There is a clarity to the work now, a kind of long-term purpose. I am absolutely fascinated by the Neil storyline, with the wife and the son having an affair right under his nose. Fascinated! And the scenes with Neil and Nikki drinking together! Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) played the hell out of that. I do not want to denigrate the previous writers, but this is a different slant and a clearer line laying the groundwork for the future.”
Now that’s real. And how about this,
“Victor thinks Jack is a dick and a son of a bitch and he always will. They don’t ever change.”
So I wanna be startin’ something…with YOU. Let’s talk about the scenes that move us and how WE think they should have been played, written, or developed.
Here’s how we can make it work.
