I think they should keep the latest Kyle around. He's pretty on the eyes and a decent actor, better to just work with him and keep him in GC. This character needs to be front and center.

I agree 100% that Kyle Abbott should be front and centre. Imo his return has been bungled by Mal’s plot writing. Grown sons hating on fathers is lazy and predictable but it can work. But in this case it makes zero sense. And then it’s underscored with the nonsense that Kyle is cool with Victor AND SEEMS TO BE BONDING WITH BILLY AS CEO AND PHYLLIS (who Kyle has always hated and now she’s betrayed Jack) WTF? Sorry I lose it when Philly comes to mind.

Anyway I generally agree with you. But I think this actor lacks natural charm and so he will sink or swim entirely on the writing. Showing off his abs is just embarrassing.

He has a cute smile I think. So there’s that.

Kyle is perplexing, looks wise. I love the pretty boy type, but he’s not doing it for me. I wouldn’t call him ugly (especially since I could be living under a bridge challenging billy goats to solve riddles), but it’s like the show is trying way, way too hard to hit us with the KYLE IS SO EFFING HOT AND SEXAY hammer. His wardrobe is certainly helping to mask any attractive qualities. That, and his character is a bag of smarmy douche right now.

Kyle hooking up with Hilary and being the other man in her triangle with Devon seemed like a no-brainer. He'd be the not quite devil on her shoulder encouraging her to be herself and not what someone else wants her to be and they could've played on his daddy issues by having Hilary end up pregnant but not sure WTD is and/or determined it be Devon even as Kyle will move heaven and earth to be a good father to their kid and husband/partner to Hilary. Hilary thinks Devon would be good/the best for her but has an undeniable attraction to Kyle. Kyle showing he cares for someone gives him some humanity that he's currently sorely lacking. Devon then can be pulled into the Abbott/Newman wars as he throws around his Chancellor money to thwart Kyle at every business turn and becomes more involved at Chancellor which pisses off Cane.  Lily wants to blame Hilary for making Devon lower himself to dirty fighting and also have him at odds with Cane. You'd have had Kyle involved in a lot of story with characters from all the groups.

The thing that bothers me most about Michael Mealor is that there have to be literally thousands of young actors in LA that would be a better looking, better acting, personable Kyle. Why did Malodor have to hire the weirdest looking, smarmiest mofo out there?

This would have been good story.  I wish you were writing Show!

I don't think this Kyle is ugly but I don't find him particularly attractive either. It seems to me his whole aesthetic is aimed more toward men than women. NTTAWWT. I'm going to have a hard time buying this Kyle in a relationship with Mariah, Tessa, Hilary, Summer, or whoever. The guy I've seen so far doesn't appear to be a good enough actor to make that work.

Seems to me it would be interesting if they had Kyle admit to Mariah that while he was NYC he had done some "experimenting" and now considers himself bi. He and Mariah could bond over their newfound sexual fluidity. Oh wait, this is the show where one kiss between two women became such an earth-shattering event they had to give CG an award for it. (Seriously, if you watched the recent Daytime Emmys, they kept showing that kiss over and over and the message seemed to be that they were rewarding CG mostly for her "bravery" in that moment versus for being a damn good actress ALL THE TIME, no matter what scenario they throw at her.)

This is where I am as well.  I fear it's because I hate the character but am holding it against the actor.

Meh, I got no problem with the actor. I just think he's not a good fit for the role.

Editing my comment again to say: what about Fen? He might've made a nice recast for Lauren and Michael's son. Mal doesn't seem to write for them anymore though.

I didn't watch when Fen was on but see him on Twitter and Insta a lot. He's good looking and honestly looks believable as Tracey Bregman and Christian LeBlanc's son! 

Was he not good on the show? With Scotty and Noah shipped out of town they need more men in that age group. 

 

Very unpopular opinion: I miss the tack house set!

Fen was kind of whiny as I recall. But Dummer did a bunch of mean shit to him so he probably had cause.

And now it seems she is being punished for that kiss. She has been put on the backburner doing NADA. Acting all jealous of the twit Summer is not entertaining.

I don't care for the Kyle actor's looks or acting either. But is that really an unpopular opinion?

 

My unpopular opinion is I like vixen Summer. It's a change from the bland good girls who do selfish things but still get treated as good girls on soaps.

I like her too. FINALLY she is being written how I expected Phyllis's daughter to act. I would like to see her be a bit bitchier to Sharon to tho. It is deserved.

It felt really long.  He played the same character - same beats, same quirks, same everything.  And on Days, as apparently on Y&R nowdays too, nobody is dead for long......

Yeah, and Days not only flaunts the BFtD [back from the dead] record, but also is a major competitor in the hamocious villains category. Klevin really didn't cut it there at all.

ETA, the shows are running neck and neck in the corpse-rug-rolling competition though.

Crosby, you know I love you like a heart attack, but maybe it's time for a medication revaluation. We'll call a meeting with the dispensary nurse on Tequila Thursday during Choir Practice on the Lido deck.  

We'll get this straightened out or get arrested trying. 

 

Did you hear about the express lane the local constabulary put in just for Preverts? 

Nothing rhymes with orange.

I want to agree, and then I think back to the last 18 months of MS's tenure repeating dialog like she had Tourette's, spinning her arms like a whirligig in a hurricane, blatant mad-libbing at fellow actors, and I don't miss MS's annoying acting tics and mannerisms at all. She was horrific in her unprofessional behavior and attitude, and the SLs she was launched into showed TIIC went out of their way to ruin the actor and gut the character.

Phyllis was deliberately written into Godzilla constantly destroying Tokyo when Sharon finally assisted her taking a header down the stairwell. It was a relief to have Phyllis in a coma and shipped out of town.

GT is dramatizing exactly what TIIC want done; lacerating attacks at being lied and betrayed again by the lover she gave up everything to be with, and her daughter is neck deep in those same lies and betrayals to protect NotBilly.

TIIC renewed her contract because GT goes all-in for them and pimps it on social media like it's coming out of a Maleficent propaganda proxy site.

FrankenKyle was disappointing, but JFP didn't do much more than turn him into a kissing cousin. GnomeoKyle was a bookend to Dumber, and that didn't help his cause -- Too much ignorant, richie rich kid antics. Rat Bastard Kyle is too smarmy, sleazy, self-aggrandizing, and ambitious by half to ever be appealing.

I didn’t mind FrankenKyle. And CS is right. The writing for the Kyles has been trash. The actors had no chance. The latest one conspiring with his dad (instead of hating on him), being a bit lighthearted, and being free of Summer has had by far the best writing (after the first dreadful weeks) and therefore best shot at working.
