    Y&R still hasn’t been the same after last year’s disaster with characters getting killed off while others are riding off into the sunset (BYE BYE DYLAN McAVOY). Where do they go from here?

    • Judith Armstrong says:

      You’re right, it’s not the same, it’s so much better!!! The new regime has invigorated the entire show. Sharon now has a backbone and is no longer a lady in distress all the time, the Winters family finally is on screen more and more characters are interacting with each other more than ever, it’s no longer the “Victor show.” And the new characters mostly have potential, Tessa, Jordan and Reed and Mattie specifically. I can do without Scott and Charlie. It’s the only soap I’ve ever watched and I am glad I stuck around through the past couple years disastrous writing

  2. I hope there’s a point to Once’s new direction and not being done merely to keep the show going.

    as wicked as they come? oh sure now Elphaba shows up

  4. Dominique says:

    man they really aren’t even trying to hide it anymore, are they? they’re just gonna start all over again with different actors. disrespectful to the actors who’ve already played these roles in the previous seasons.

    Emma Booth would be a great version of the White Witch from Narnia. Hopefully, they’ll finally get Narnia into the public domain, I’m not sure it is.
