doing the happy dance!!!
Love it. Even as a ghost or his kids' conscience, he rocks!!
I am sporting a BIG smile right now!!!
Lynn Marie Latham should NEVER, EVER have killed off John Abbott!!
Killing off John Abbott might just be to biggest failure in Y&R's history. I love every time one of those Abbott kids sees Ghost John - without questioning if they go nuts - but it also reminds me that this man shouldn't have been killed.
I agree. It will be nice to see him but LML should have never been allowed to kill him off. So stupid.
I wish there was a way to bring him back full time. The Abbotts are dwinlding down to almost oblivion.
Why don't they just do what they did with Phillip Chancellor III, rewrite history and bring John Abbott BACK to life permanently? This ghost foolishness has worn thin! Lynn Latham's crappery is just as deserving of a rewrite as most of Bell's "writing" (and I use that term loosely!) is.......
Jill and Josh, make it happen!! And while you're at it, bring my Drucilla back from the dead. That damn Latham woman!!!
Gloria could have taken him, after they pulled the plug, to a private facility where he has been on life support. He miraculously regains his life and comes home. Voila!
Glad to see he's back again.
I don't know how he could be brought back as John the undead, but since this IS a soap stranger things have happened.
THIS is ONE of the many reasons I hated LML.
Some may think you're statement is rather strong, but I totally agree--biggest mistake this show ever made. I place it right up there with killing Maureen Bauer off GL as one of the biggest mistakes of the last two or three decades.
He should have not been killed off either. There was no point to it. I always kind of thought that the way they wrote John Abbott was kind of whimpy. I mean I dont remember Y&R in its heyday so he probably was great but I just thought he was kind of whimpy especially when he appears as a ghost. Do you remember when John appeared when Gloria was trying to move in to the Abbott Mansion? I remember John telling Jack to let her live there. For all the crap she put him through, I would have told her to get the hell out of the Abbott Mansion.
I understand looking for him for advice, as a ghost, but to me he comes off a little preachy. I mean you have to be ruthless and aggressive in business but it seems like he doesnt think that way and doesnt want his kids to think that way. That to me is a mistake. If Jack was cunning like Adam or Tucker and didnt have a conscience always appearing like John Abbott,he probably would have had Jabot, Beauty of Nature etc. by now.
There's an old saying, Nice guys finish last.
If JFP brought John back from the dead, I may forgive her for killing Maureen on GL. It can be done. Ghost John is just everyone's conscious telling them what to think about as it is.
Orange John returns!
Jackie needs a talkin' to. LOL.
I would hope that ol John Abbott could get an expanded role. Last year, June 23rd, I believe, Ghost John gave Bill some selfish-oriented advice about his life.
So, knowing this, I would like to see Y&R go a little supernatural, and have Good Ghost John and Bad Ghost John dukin it out in giving Billy and Jack advice. Give Ghost John a real story-line, a super-natural thriller.
I'm taking a "wait and see" attitude with this new regime, especially because of JFP as EP and her poor stwardship at GH.(As well as the other shows she's visited her "charms" to. ) I'd like to know if this was her doing or did JG push for JD to be brought back. The other character I've had a difficult time understanding their killing off was Colleen. Since they transplanted her heart into EB's Victor, that vital organ has gone the opposite way of "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas". Where the Grinch's heart grew three sizes as a result of gratefulness and kindness, the writing since that surgery occured has had that heart downsized for the GVN. Sad...
Why can't they just put this old goblin out to pasture? Dead should be DEAD. Bill Bell would have NEVER kept trotting John Abbott out like this.
