Quote alanadz: I was with you until you brought Phyllis into it. The fact is MS left. Phyllis is NOT on canvas and there is nothing coming from Y&R about a recast. So if Phyllis has run her course, it's not a problem because she is already GONE!
I am also not a fan of bringing back most characters. Going backward is rarely the answer to anything. Progress means moving forward. I am 100000% sure the current writing team was not hired to move backward. I like most of what they are doing and hope to see more fresh new faces at Y&R.
The last thing Y&R needs is more new faces. The s/ls are mostly pathetic for the existing characters. Hopefully the new writers will do better, but until I see improvement in the show, I really don’t want to see any new faces unless they are replacing some of the existing new faces. <p>
I think bringing back characters such as Mackenzie, Tucker, Ashley or Nikki's sister is a good idea because they are members of existing families and/or businesses. Now that Mrs. C is gone, Devon is the only member of the Chancellor family in GC, and he has no s/l except getting into Lily’s business. Mac and Tucker could take over CI. It would be nice for Ashley to be the one trying to keep Jack straight instead of John’s ghost. Ashley and Tucker could even get back together. With Tucker back, there could be more s/ls for Devon. It’s not like these are old characters that have no current ties. If they are going to keep bringing in new faces and backburner most of the original characters, they should just change the name from Y&R to something else like N&B, The New and the Boring.
