Devon needs to get back to his music. It is what he loves. He is not one of my favs but I hate to see him get used for his money by anyone. Who of us wouldn't love to spend our lives working at what we love? He can start his own empire.

Poor, poor, Devon..............
Not even millions and millions of dollars can make this
dude interesting !!!

No matter how many different writers this show has had,
he is still the most boring charater on the show. His grandmother
that he knew for a hot minute, left him a redicous sum of
money............stupid writing !!!

Now he is waltzing up to the bar ordering scotch, neat......
leaving hundred dollar tips. Buying expensive gifts for a
girlfriend that I don't even think works on the show anymore.
GMAB with this guy......he's been an executive, a music
producer.......with no education, hearing loss, homeless.....

Why is this guy still on the show ?!?!

Beats me, his fans can't say "bad writing" IMO they all have received their fair share of bad scripts--there is not much you could do to this self righteous character to make him likable IMO. By the way..what happened to the "eye roll" emoticon? I feel lost without it....

You are right ! They have all had their share of poor writing......
He seems so uncomfortable all the time, to me.

That's why I think Mason's gonna try to make a 'play' for Devon, then swindle him out of his money! Devon won't have to worry about how to get rid of it...Mason will be all too glad to take care of it for him! *After all the time Mason spent in writer oblivion, JFP has turned him into a sleaze, like Carmine! First, w/the abrupt pairing w/Hilary, now he's gonna mess w/Devon! I have no use for either he or Hilary! ~)

Goodness I had to login to answer this post. Devon/Bryton is a great actor he actually has a Emmy and your beloved Adam doesn't. You cannot compare Devon to Adam. Adam has been on two to three times a week compared to Devon being on once a month. How can he show what he can do, good script or not, if he is never seen? The times he has been on I have no complaints. To me Devon isn't boring he gets nothing at all to work with. Devon gets a girl friend but the writers don't want to give him a love life. He hasn't had a compelling story line since Dru left. I will repeat a character is only boring for two reasons. One is when they are on daily with good s/l and the audience continues not to like them. Two, if the writers refuse to write interesting s/l for them then of course people will not be interested. I hate seeing actors bashed and called boring when they get nothing compared to others on this show. Not one AA on this show has ever gotten what Adam or even Dylan gets. Dylan, now that is what you can call boring. He has been given the brass ring on this show and he is still dullen.

You say Adam is interesting. I disagree. He has two expressions neither of which I find interesting. All Adam is, is popular with the writers and some viewers. If Devon was half as popular with the writers the viewers would get interested.

Writing some smart, intelligent characters for a change would be a welcome surprise from this writing crew. Everyone on this show is as dumb as a box of rocks. Devon has always been an alert, smart-mouthed, wise-cracking street smart guy who laid the truth on you whether you wanted it or not. To write him to be confused, lonely and duped by Mason just b/c he inherited a lot of money is an error in judgment and a whole lotta wrong for Y&R! That is not Devon! Talk about attitude! Devon has enough self-righteous attitude to cut with a knfe. Devon could have & should have scoped Mason's game from the very start. Besides, why is he so nice to this stool-pidgeon who helped someone hurt his sister? That is just NOT who Devon is! I never thought money was a handicap! Having money just accentuates more of what you really are. Drinking scotch neat? This is So NOT Devon.

The best thing that this writing team can do is to get to know their characters history and personalities b/f they write for them. I like Devon but I don't like what the writers are doing to him.
