Wondering about the nicknames used in the thread? Poster SweePea59 was kind enough to take the time to compile them for us. You can find them here, here, and here, so please check the posts out before asking in the thread. Thanks.

Making a new ruling on tweets, since they are prevalent in this thread:

 

In the future, please link to individual tweets or a Twitter feed instead of copying and pasting them into a post. Not everyone wants to read them; those who do can follow your links. And technically, they are copyrighted material just like a blog post or an article, so they shouldn't be copied and pasted anyway.

 

In addition, please don't just post tweets -- add some commentary or thoughts of your own. A post full of tweets is just like a list post -- boring to read. We want to know YOUR thoughts. This is especially important in single-thread shows like this one.

 

PM me if you have questions or comments.

NuKyle is very tall! Maybe it will work. Maybe not. NuAbby is very tall too, but I welcome that change because it drove me crazy how short Abby was when all the members of her family were tall people.

Here is a picture of NuAbby and NuKyle together. So many new faces to get used too. And there will be more

Chloe has officially become a character they needs to leave the screen.

Spoiler



There is absolutely no reason why she needs to be doing this so is it ok if I just pretend like this story isn't happening? I like Chloe and Kevin but it really seems like they have no idea what to do with them. I guess this is what happens when you have 1241463 characters to write for.

Oh for heaven's sake, Chloe. Get a freakin job. This new development is ridiculous. All their money woes are nonsensical. A young couple can't get it together? If they have horrific debt they can talk to a financial advisor, get some help, file for bankruptcy. It's so beyond stupid. And as if Billy wouldn't be paying significant child support for Delia. And there is the fact that Kevin and Chloe have zero chemistry. Ack. These two need to go away.

Not loving the pics. But maybe he presents differently onscreen. NuAbby on the other hand screams Ashley's daughter to me. Abby's shortness drove me bananas. Although, honestly, I think I'll laugh my ass off when I first see Billy and nuKyle scenes. BM is so differently built and so much shorter. At least PB is more tall and slim in his build.

I'm telling you......nuKyle has Jay Leno's chin and it ain't a good look. He's too tall & has a horse face. The first time he walks into the GCAC and goes to the bar Carmine will ask why the long face? Maybe, the writers/producers want Kyle to go into a new direction (isn't that what TPTB say when they are firing an actor) and, Kyle is going to be quirky or something. Maybe, more comedic. He just doesn't look like leading man material to me. IMO!

I would add that EB is not only looking older, but not well physically. He's been a wheezing for quite some time now, but his breathing is more labored than usual. I've long been fed up with Prictor, and now might be a good time to give us and him a break.

NuKyle isn't that attractive and is too tall. NuAbby looks a lot like ED/Ashley.

NuKyle is unnecessary. I thought OldKyle was sexy in a built like a brick shithouse way, sort of like Uncle Billy but less the menacing horse teeth.

It's funny, watching those anniversary intros, you get a sense of the actors in real life and my God, Brickshithouse Billy chooses to make all those horrible grimaces at us and the saintly people of Genoa City.

There are some telling pictures online if you Google Marco Dapper, bless his immodest little heart.

NuKyle's been on a couple of prime-time series-- GCB and Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23-- and trust, he's got his own brick-shithouse-ness going on. There was even a whole episode of Don't Trust The B about how the main girl wanted to fuck him even though he was really dumb, just because of his abs.

Here is some behind the scene footage of the 40th Anniversary Event yesterday.

Part 1 / Part 2

I've seen NuKyle on a few things. Dude can act and he has a ripped body. I bet they recast him because they are taking Kyle in a completely new direction. That casting notice for "Connor Boyd" was clearly for NuKyle and they had him described as a guy not wanting to be part of the family business. I also bet Phyllis will be rolling around with NuKyle by the end of May.

Apparently, EB has never had a face lift & doesn't wear makeup on the show. He looks good for his age. He didn't look good the first 5 or so years and then looked great up till about 5 years ago. As long, he keeps his shirt buttoned up he's okay with me. By the way, he lastest phrase is, "you son of a bitch!!" It's become my latest fpdrinking game and I'm getting drunker everyday.

God this post made me laugh. :) I wonder if BH couldn't commit sufficiently to the role and that's why they recast the part. Though I read tallKyle has a knack for humour. That would be nice if the character was going that route. This show can be so dark.

It is Doug from "On Air with Doug" who is a popular Y&R Podcaster. He has talked to a lot of them on his show and I think CBS Daytime threw him an invite. They are being very smart this go around about including all walks of "press" to their events. Lots of buzz happening.

This is great. I have one question, though. Why is Kate Linder in costume? She's the only one!


Based on what Doug was saying on twitter last night, she was filming. As were a lot of them. They just took a break to do this press event. If you look closely some folks weren't even there for the group picture popped up throughout the video at different points. He said that many of them were rushed off right back to set after the cake was cut.

Here is Doug's website. He posted a ton of pictures as well. I liked the pictures of the set. Billy and Victoria's house is much improved!

Funny, I thought the same thing. It's like the woman lives to be in that outfit. I find the fact that she wears the damn thing at all weird. Most domestic help don't wear these kind of outfits these days because it's insulting and a throw back to earlier times. If anything, she needs to loose the ridiculous hat. It reminds me of those old nurses hats, which no one wears these days.

BTW, Victor did NOT pay for Adam's Harvard education. Apparently, EB ad libbed that line and it should have been cut, but the producers didn't catch it. Lots of folks tweeted MM about this plot point yesterday and he clarified it last night. Adam payed for his education with scholarship and poker money. MM asked everybody to chill out because he's made mistakes and to leave EB alone. I thought that was very classy.

Experience isn't fact, but my ex was very wealthy and his live in help didn't wear uniforms and with the people he associated with that they felt uniforms looks like you said "dated" or corny.

I don't mind when actors ad lib, especially if it's jokes but when it's a big plot point it confuses some of the viewers. It was classy for MM to explain.

What a weird ad lib though? It's not like he alluded to some past stuff between characters like apparently JW and TEB did recently (or so I read and the director made them redo the scene). It's like EB believes Victor has done this for Adam. Quite funny actually.

Not that I completely blame EB, the history with Adam was retconned. So, it would be hard to keep track, but still.

Okay in those BTS shots from Doug's site, tallKyle doesn't tower over PB. He's taller but doesn't look like an NBA player.

It reminds me when MM adibbed or (or just misspoke) that Jack was in detox to Chelsea when it was clear at that point in the storyline she didn't know that yet. MCE covered well. They all do it. I honestly wouldn't have been surprised to learn that Victor secretly funded his college. It isn't like Victor hasn't done shit like that in the past. Remember when he purchased the entire building that own RS to "protect" Nick from failure without his knowledge. Total Victor move.

I've been enjoying all the little cast intros for the anniversary. It was a treat today to see the first Kevin/Michael scene, again. God, I freaked out when the show first revealed the two of them were brothers! My all-time favorite SL on Y&R. It was just fantastic acting and really deepened Michael's character.

My favorite anniversary into was actually Paul's, though. He seemed like he was having such a good time and made me laugh with his remising about Eva Longoria breaking up his marriage. ("Good choice!") He just came off as so much more charming and fun than Paul, who is always so blah IMO. I've decided to allow him to stay on my show. You're welcome, DD. ;)

I actually had thought that Victor did pay for his education. I thought it was even a part of the storyline that Victor told Hope he would always going to take care of her & Adam even while they weren't together & living on the farm. Also, the camera direction was odd because it was going back between EB & MCE. The camera was on EB so either he ad-libbed the line for something else entirely or he is pretty fast with the ad-libs. Usually, they have a script supervisor with the script in hand along with a stop watch for timing or at least, they used to. In the scheme of the things it's pretty harmless. And, it's not like EB always gets the last line in every scene...um....wait.....that one is actually true. In fact, it just happened today with PB & MP. LOL!!
