    Hi everybody! Yes, everything is going well with me. I'm currently finishing up the specialization portion to tack on top of my MBA. I had to drop when I first was diagnosed with cancer, and was forced to finish the other classes first. 3-1/2 classes left now.

    So any changes? What are you Liking on YandR?
    Posted by ‏@CLFisHOT


    The show as a whole is still not grabbing me but I am noticing more changes that I hope will lead to a show I can’t wait to watch like my fave sublime primetime soaps -Parenthood and Nashville.

    So what am I liking? What do I want?

    I like that Lily and Cane’s airtime have increased. It is still not where it should be and they do not really have a storyline, but going from 2 minutes once every 2 weeks over the last 5 months to very brief scenes an average of once a week is not great, but is a start. For a 5 days a week hourly serial drama, 3 days a week is both the minimum yet sufficient to get and keep viewers invested in a storyline. Anything less is filler material and not worthy of such popular characters. Lane are popular and an asset to the show. Instead of exerting so much energy fighting against a large faction of fans for wanting to watch the show in order to see Lane on it – the smart money would be to utilize and invest in Lane to keep and draw in more viewers. It just takes an unbiased approach and vision. I wrote this the day of seeing clips of the 1/16/13 U.S episode and wow – just wow. Whoever wrote and directed Lane’s sexy scavenger hunt and romantic love scenes tapped into the true essence of Lane. Chemistry galore, fun, romantic, hot, sexy, and true love wrapped into one gorgeous package played sublimely by Daniel Goddard and Christel Khalil. Bravo for getting it right! If this doesn’t show TPTB that Lane can deliver and has what it takes to be two of Y&R leads, then nothing will get through the stubborn bias.

    I want more of that Lane with invested writing for them as 3 dimensional characters. A substantive storyline where they are written in character and not dumbed down and muzzled to prop others or sell brief plot points played out wherever the Winters are crowded together on their island. I want them to have a home life, work, friends like all the other non-Winters island characters the writers so easily invest in and write for. That they are allowed to interact with others in GC and are shown at home, work, out socializing and everything in between. Lane who have twins, no longer have a home or visible twins onscreen. They interact only with Lily’s family, Leslie and Tyler (Winters island grouping). It’s truly pathetic. You know before Cane had his family stripped from him, at least Lane got to interact with them too. That is one restoration that is still needed – Cane’s family. Sharon was not the only character severely damaged by MAB. Cane and Lily were constantly at the end of her trashing whip. Lane use to have friends they hung out with, talked and confided in. They need friends. It helps flesh out the character’s perspective. We are always guessing the whats and whys with Lane because they don’t get to talk to anyone about anything onscreen. Lily had Colleen, Mac and Sierra. Cane had Brad and JT. Now? I would like to see Cane be friends with Billy or Nick or the incoming Dylan. Lily and Victoria are both mothers of toddlers so that would be something they have in common, Roxy or Abby. Sharon was Lily’s mother best friend and it would have been natural for her to extend a hand of friendship to Lily as a surrogate mother/girlfriend but Sharon and Lily have not crossed paths in years because Lily has been segregated from the rest of GC.

    I want Lily and Cane to build a legacy for their children. They had one when Cane was Kay’s grandson (still hoping for that restoration), but while I wait – why not have them buy BON. They can borrow the money from Neil, Jill, and Kay. Dru came up with Seasons – a line for Newman’s that had a scent for every season of the year which was brilliant! Seasons was eventually incorporated into BON. Lily’s mother’s involvement in its beginnings make it a perfect fit for her to invest in this company. If not, Lane can come up with their own line and start a company of their own. Build a new empire with Lane that we get to see from scratch. Let them compete with the existing companies. Competition is what is needed among the GC companies. Not musical CEO’s and the very stale Jack vs Victor – Newman/Abbott wars. Its redundant and boring for a 5 days/week serial. Put a new company in the waters with fresh players (Lane).

    Cane will be the business brains behind the company, Lily the face of the company while continuing to learn the ropes and bringing her fresh ideas to their new company. Maybe Jill will join them as a start-up consultant. It would be interesting if Neil is still at Jabot how he would view their defection and the competition. And for those who claim Cane is just a bartender - Cane helped run his father’s extensive mob empire. Colin intimated Cane went to the finest schools. Cane was entrusted by Kay and Jill to head Jabot then Chancellor. When he was in charge of both companies they did very well. Even though he got the jobs based on nepotism, he proved himself in them and would not have run those conglomerates so well if he didn’t have some business background in the past. Also later working at McCall’s for Tucker he managed to do the work of two executives. Because MAB stripped Cane of so much due to her bias against he and Lily, she wanted them to have nothing so she kept him at the dive bar for so long, some have forgotten Cane’s already established past in the business world. If the current writers were working to repair his character as they have been others – these facts about Cane would have been expounded and built on. Hey, when he goes for the loan to start their new cosmetic empire maybe Kay or Jill could bring up/remind viewers in conversation with him how he did so well at Chancellor and Jabot before and Cane can finally go into detail about his extensive education. Business is business and mob outfits have legit businesses they launder their money through. Cane as the mob boss’ son who was being groomed to take over had to know how to run a large conglomerate. I would like to see Cane and Lily become future moguls in GC. Lily went to college. Did she ever finish? If not, is she interested in finishing up with a business degree now that she is starting a career in the cosmetics business? We don’t know. Can there be some dimensions to these characters please?

    I like Neil getting more airtime too and his scenes with Jack discussing his past struggle with addiction were stellar.

    I like new Noah. What a charming guy. He is such an asset to the show.

    I like Jack and Phyllis together. They are so natural, suitable and unforced. She doesn’t overpower him in scenes, and he calms her histrionics and cougar sex kitten act down which makes her palatable to watch again. I am not riveted by Jack’s addiction story, but I am not offended by it either. Their performances have been very good. Peter Bergman is a shue in for a lead actor Emmy nomination.

    I like Steve Burton’s response in this TV Guide Interview: “…I don’t want to work five days a week like I did at GH. [Laughs] I was on the air so much even I was sick of me!” If only show runners would get this! They play the same few characters (TPTB faves) to death till it poisons the show. I love Lane and I don’t want to see them 5 days a week. The overexposure would sour anyone on anything. Overexposure of a character is never good. Unfortunately it’s still happening on Y&R with a few characters, and yes we are sick of them.

    This is more than I liked even a week ago so there is progress. The show has the ingredients to be stellar. I hope it gets there. I will be watching if the show’s main draw for me are there for the ride – Lane.

    : Write in Friday ...

    Quote Lovelan: Laners just a few things to jog your memory for the letter be sweet in your letter writing but get your point across.


    We need to send letters detailing what Cane and Lily have been through together. Why they would never be the pod people we are seeing on screen.
    Lily has exprienced to much to be regressed to silly school girl actions
    Lily is a cancer survival, wife, mother of twins let the Lily we see on screen reflect that
    Cane is the son of a Mob boss not this unsure pod on our screens show the real Cane.
    Cane and Lily are in love and adore their children and love being married to each other.
    Cane and Lily would never react this way.

    : : #FF: Lane Fans ‏@WeLoveLane

    #YR For myself and many others we want a s/l for #Lane Cane and Lily that accentuates and focuses on them as a couple and all that they have overcome in a positive way. We want to see Cane and Lily supporting each other and fighting,talking and loving their way through what is going on. Cane has some demons from the past that's never been explored. He and Lily have never really talked about these past demons and fixed them. Also Neil and Devon's issues with Cane need to be addressed. Lily has gone through hell and we've never seen her talk with Cane about the affects all this has had on her. Does she ever fear the cancer returning? We never see her talk about the best friend she lost. Then there's the twins that we never see. Cane and Lily both desparately wanted children but yet we never see them with their kids. It's so disappointing as fans to never see a s/l for Lane that isn't based on destruction. If you value fans and their opinions, please listen and correct the wrongs, because We Love Lane and want more and better for them!!!







    Lane Fans ‏@WeLoveLane

    #YR @SonyPictures please take time to read the following wise points made by Doug Marland about soaps:

    - Learn the history of the show. You would be surprised at the ideas that you can get from the back story of your characters.
    *Lane Cane and Lily have a unique and special history that should be built upon, not forgotten.

    -Read the fan mail. The very characters that are not thrilling to you may be the audience's favorites. (I would add read your tweets)
    *Fans have tweeted, wrote, called and emailed for years in support of Lane Cane and Lily to no avail in them getting more airtime and s/l that's well written and appealing.

    -Be objective. "When I came in to ATWT, the first thing I said was, what is pleasing the audience?" You have to put your own personal likes and dislikes aside and develop the characters that the audience wants to see.
    *Fans have been begging for years for Lane Cane and Lily to be developed as a couple and as individuals in the way of s/ls that involve jobs, romance and family life.

    -Don't change a core character. You can certainly give them edges they didn't have before, or give them a logical reason to change their behavior. But when the audience says, "He would never do that," then you have failed.

    -Good soap opera is good storytelling. It's very simple
