    I have started watching GH and right away I noticed that there are many friendships on that show. Y&R has none.

    Exactly, we had. Lauren/Phyllis. Katherine/Nikki. Billy/Rafe. MAB was just starting with Victoria/Chloe. Billy/Kevin...kind of. JFP killed that foursome

    Quote lynj: I think they have lost their vision, because I remember in times past yes this was a soap, but it was seen as good quality for the genre, progressive, with good actors.

    Now it seems difficult to tell the difference between Y&R and the other soaps. If anything it's lagging behind other daytime shows in any 'awareness' storylines. They used to lead the way in this area - not anymore.

    It doesn't help the the cast appear to have factions and be divided against each other - that spells disaster for any production.

    Maybe it's because the Bells are no longer as personally involved, as they were for decades. The current people in control don't have as much of a personal investment.

    It's just a new era in soaps and if Y&R stays stuck in current pattern, its time at the top will be limited, it will be overtaken by soaps with more relevant actors and storylines.

    I was actually a veteran viewer of about 20 years, I love the people who have been on this show for a long time, but I am frustrated at seeing the show stuck in the same formula as twenty years ago, there's hardly any difference. Nick and Sharon again... seen before, and their characters haven't matured much.

    When Michael Muhney was on the show, I thought this guaranteed viewership for another generation. I am in my early forties and hoped I could look forward to watching this show into my later years as other viewers have. But there seem no new strong characters to carry it forward.

    I have had to accept the situation and look to other soaps such as GH who are gaining more viewers in my age group and ex actors from soaps who have become too staid. I still believe in daytime as a relevant genre, but they have to adapt.

    LYNJ! This post is AWESOME! YOU NAILED IT!!!

    Good post! Bring them back! We used to have an amazing cast, and great story lines. I don't watch General Hospital, but it seems a lot of Y&R actors have moved to GH.

    Wow, seems Y&R has passed up lots of good people. Should have kept many of these around!! Especially my MM! Jackie, I'm no god with real names. You are going to have me doing homework on all of these but MM, VR, TL, SM, and JD, lol.
