Quote Sinny:Quote mgmad1993:Quote volfan: I don't dislike Phyllis but I don't miss her much either. I don't think her being on the show made it better, because for a while I thought she was getting too much screen time and it was becoming the Phyllis show. She was either lying, humping or hiding evidence for something she's done, whether it was business, sexual, family, or criminal. Her life is made up of a bunch of hidden things and lies. She's slightly less crazy than Sheila. And although that can be fun to watch sometimes, it gets a little boring to watch her at times because you already know whatever scheme she comes up with she's going to get away with it. That is not good writing to me. The good writing part was when the writers gave us all a break from too much Phyllis. Sometimes you need a break from certain irritating characters. It helps you kind of forget some of the bad things they do and when they start doing them again it's more interesting to watch instead of piling it on day after day. That’s why watching Carmine was boring and they are still dragging this storyline on. Watching Michael, Lauren and Fen is boring, makes you think all the Baldwins do is stay in trouble. Lily & Cane are boring, they need to send them to Paris for a while and maybe they will come back with Drucilla who didn't die but lost her memory & was staying there and they find her. Anyway when Phyllis comes back whether it’s Michelle Stafford or not, I think her character will be more refreshing to watch, until it becomes the Phyllis show again. For a minute I thought they were going to name the show PHYLLIS, YOUNG & RESTLESS.
I find Phyllis entertaining. Her character is anything but boring and a lot of that has to do with Michelle Stafford. I often wonder if the actress who plays Lauren (and Michael's character too) is ever drained because her story line has been quiet dramatic and depressing for a long time(after the Carmine affair). I miss Phyllis. I hope she comes back soon.
I found her entertaining too.. she was out there .. I love a character that is on the edge.. she was never boring.. opinionated and passionate.. perfect for a soap character.. I hope she comes back too. I used to love her and Michaels' friendship till the writers ended that..
She's a strong character but she has been vulnerable at times. When she loves, she loves hard and strong and when she hurts it's just as hard and strong. I think that's what makes her the perfect partner for Jack. I miss her friendship with Michael too. It was unusual for a soap opera in that it was an innocent male/female friendship. They sure could use each other right now.
