I would love BM back, but you're right some storylines would feel weirder. I'm assuming there is supposed to be a dramatic moment coming up when Victoria finds out Billy slept with Summer and is pissed? Or did that happen and I missed it?

I think with MS back they could bring Daniel back if the actor wanted to. I just want to forget about Daisy and that baby and all that crap though.

I don't think anyone knows besides Biscuit, Dummer, Phyllis and Kyle. I wonder what Victor and Drinki will think? And Nick? OMG, the scowling, the brow furrowing, the empty threats! Followed by the inevitable Blaming Of Sharon.

I was a faithful long term As The World Turns viewer (I am still in a funk over it not being around anymore. That and my beloved Knot's Landing) but I was also a YR viewer, in order to support my mother's viewing of it. I gave up actually watching YR before they painted the interior of Katherine's house Property Brother Grey (????????) but cheated enough by reading spoilers to keep up my end of the conversation with her. Since I really, really miss having a soap show in my life,  I am now ready to bite the bullet and start watching again since I have read, and I can't believe I am saying this, that MS is coming back. Gulp. 

I started recording last week and am trying super hard to catch up with all the actor and set changes/additions. Nothing makes any sense to me, haha

As someone who saw chemistry between Cane and Jill, I am along for the ride with Cane and Traci. I haven't watched any scenes of them yet (or know if they have even started) but if the attraction is there, I say go for it. He always skeeved me out with younger actresses but for some reason I find him appealing with older than him actresses. 

Just looking around here now to try and familiarize myself with the threads again. I have been around forever since TWOP day and just lurked around here when everyone came over to Previously, not taking time to join.

Nice to see a normal taping schedule. I don’t care the reasons but DOOL taping schedule is ridiculous. Too bad HT didn’t get to direct EB, MTS & AH.

And don't worry about nothing making sense because it mostly doesn't.

I'm in agreement with you. I say they put him with Stafford.

Oh! And welcome LucindaWalsh (who was my favorite character on ATWT back in the day).

Thanks all for the welcome! And for also acknowledging my beloved Lucinda Walsh character. I used to live for her putting her feet up on her desk and plotting, her affairs with John Dixon and James Stenbeck. It was a coin toss between her and Barbara Ryan for a screen name. Sniff, I really do miss my ATWT show. I am 53 and have watched since the mid seventies until its demise. 

I am going back to lurking a bit so I can catch up on episodes and not be a dork on the threads.

If they can fire GT to bring the Staph, they can certainly oust JT to bring back BM.  The question is would he want to come back.

It would be hard to picture BM as Billy having slept with Dummer and frankly having even deigned to be in the same room as Phyllis.

I'd be fine with sticking that story down the memory hole if it means we get BM back and bring Billy Abbott back to a decent human being again.

Hey LucindaWalsh, don't worry about being a dork here. These people are kind and more than willing to share their knowledge and insights with newbies. I've been watching for about a year and thought I had a pretty good grip on things but with the recent regime change and the return of Adam I'm kind of floundering again. Reading the forums helps a lot with understanding motives and reactions.

I enjoyed ATWT. More than anything I miss Doug Marland's  mastery of characterization and storytelling. He had a profound understanding of how to weave a story together that current soap writers have no clue about.

But I have fond memories of Ruxton Hills, Craig Montgomery, Tonio Reyes, and of course Lucinda Walsh.

I remember when 30 contract players would be at Mona Lisa for dinner and talking about 10 other contract players who may or may not on the show that day. Douglas Marland was an amazing writer. Now, you’re lucky if you see 5 contract players in a scene together. I miss the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s. Great writers and big budgets.

Not only just that, but the older shows weren't afraid to use a character for a handful of lines and let them go about their business. I think SAG union rules and rates may have dictated that change so shows use a smaller core of cast members per day. Still sucks.

The only thing I can say about current Y&R is that the writers at least proofread their scripts and change the dialogue each day, even if Victor or Nick or Buttbiscuit may Bellow about the same subject for days on end. B&B has had the same exact script since fucking January.

Why does he have his finger in his ear? I cannot warm up to this actor or this portrayal of Adam. It seems like I’m always looking at his forehead and the top of his eyebrows but never his actual eyes.

Agree. Not liking the character at all.

Yes, please! I have been hoping Mishael would be brought back once Josh Griffith took over. I have gone on about it on the episode thread several times. Hilary's long lost twin needs to show up in GC pronto! I would take Hilary coming back alive also.

I think she made her change the photo because they both looked bad. Shiny and unfiltered. They both look better in the second (filtured?) picture. ha

I like that they gave props to Joshua/Nick. He does seem like he is that guy, the one who makes everyone feel better, someone kids look up to, a girl's guy and a guy's guy. And cool that Doug Davidson has such a sense of humor, along with Jason Thompson and so far, the second best Adam after CE, Mark Grossman.

Here is MS hawking her skincare line on Facebook.  Why do I feel like she's chastising me because her lighting and video quality is so bad, because she has kids, she has a life?  I should've played the drinking game for every time she said "she has kids" in the first three minutes, I would have had an interesting Sunday!

She does have nice skin, though
