How I would fix Y&R
My Post was too big to be a reply for the “YR - What would you do to fix it?” forum. Here is what I would do:
1. Mackenzie Browning
Recast Clementine Ford with Rachel Kimsey (She is hot!).
2. Kyle Jenkins Abbott
Age Kyle and cast Drew Garrett in the role (My favorite soap actor).
3. Malcolm Winters
Recast Darius McCray (Good actor but this role is not for him) with Réal Andrewsor Marcus Patrick.
4. Noah Newman and Eden Gerick
Recast Kevin Schmidt with Darin Brooks (Days of Our Lives) and Vanessa Marano with Alexandra Chando (As The World Turns) and put them on contract and age them in their early 20s.
5. Drucilla Winters and Olivia Winters
Bring back Victoria Rowell and put Tonya Lee Williams on contract.
6. Nate Hastings
Age Nate and cast Michael B. Jordan (ex-Reggie, All My Children) in the role.
7. Nate’s Love Interest
Cast sexy Elena Goode (As The World Turns) as Nate’s love interest. Her name should be Pandora.
8. Chance Chancellor
Make him a closeted homosexual.
9. Chloe Mitchell and Billy Abbott
Put them back together NOW!
10. Diego Gutierrez
Bring Greg Vaughn back as Diego and put him in a love triangle with Sharon and Victoria.
1. Chance struggles with his sexuality:
Chance gets drunk one night at the bar and sees Rafe. He talks to him, and then kisses him. Stings Chloe along and later comes out to his family. This will give the character a great storyline, and the groundbreaking gay storyline that this show needs. Chance + Rafe = Chafe (Y&R’s version of OLTL’s Kish; Kyle and Fish).
Chloe would be devastated and later find comfort in the arms of Billy
2. Tucker finds out that he has a son:
What Tucker McCall was Nina Webster’s boyfriend when they were teenagers? They talk about their past, she tells him about their long lost child, and they later begin to search for information that could lead them straight to him. When Tucker and Nina find out where their son grew up at, it will lead them straight to Australia. They later find out the name of their son, and find out that his name is CANE ASHBY!!!!! Let’s face it, Nina and Cane could not get along at all. Especially when she found out that he was not the real Philip Chancellor II! Tucker pisses Cane off every time he sees him. Especially when He found out that Tucker was Kay’s double-crossing-bastard-ass-blackmailing-company-stealing-son with Gary Reynolds. Not to mention he played Cane’s pseudo mom, Jill Abbott like a fiddle. Nina will be shock to know that her son is the man that helped Philip hide from her, Chance, Jill, and Katherine for 20 years! Tucker Will be shocked to find out that his son is a man that he has been screwing over from the moment he stepped foot in Genoa City. This storyline would be EMMY WORTHY!
3. Kyle the troubled soul:
My good friend alstonboy4315 once said that if he were to write the storyline for this character, he would make him quote “Hell on Wheels”. (See the “PLEASE READ THIS AND GIVE ME YOUR INSIGHT: Where Should Drew Garrett Go Next?” forum.) I could not agree with him more. Bring him to Genoa City and say that he is in his early 20s and let him live with Jack for a while. He should start off nice at first and later be a little bitch about everything. He should lash out at Jack for being absent most of his life as a child and get into a fist fight with Billy when Billy tries to defend Jack. He should be at the bar, get drunk, and get into fights. He should steal stuff and set things on fire! But later calm down and tell his aunt Abby (Marcy Rylan) why he is wreaking havoc in Genoa City. Another person that can get to him will be Eden, whom he later falls for, causing tension between him and Noah, and a Kyle/Eden/Noah love triangle. This will earn him his second EMMY (will receive his first this year).
4. Nate/Pandora/Devon Triangle:
Say Nate is crazy about Pandora, what if she does not feel the same way? What if she is in to Devon? Let’s say she sleeps with him, gets pregnant, says its Nate’s, and Nate later finds out about the ultimate betrayal. He later befriends Kyle (after Eden chooses Noah over him), and they wreak havoc in Genoa City. They two could be a terrible twosome. Great Storyline Huh?
5. Nate stabs Devon and later find out a shocking secret about him:
Let’s say that Nate gets drunk one night, and decides to make Devon pay for sleeping with Pandora. He breaks in Devon’s house, and steals his butcher’s knife. Devon walks in to his house and it is f*cked up by Nate, turns around, and get’s stabbed through the torso (Ouch!). Pandora later finds Nate standing over a wounded Devon with a knife and calls the ambulance immediately. Devon’s Aunt Virginia hears the news and rushes to Genoa City immediately. At the hospital, Dru overhears Aunt Virginia praying saying “Yolanda has already lost Nathan; please don’t let her lost their son.” Dru says “Nathan, what was his full name?” Aunt Virginia says, “Nathan Hastings” Dru tells Aunt Virginia that Nathan was her sister Olivia’s first husband. Aunt Virginia says that Nathan was Yolanda’s lover and she knew that Nathan was married to another women, she had no Idea that it was his son Devon’s adoptive aunt. A shocked Dru tells Neil, Malcolm, Lily, Olivia, Nate, Pandora, Kyle, Abby, and Cane that Nathan was Devon’s biological father. Devon needs blood from a relative and a shocked and shaken Nate donates some of his blood to the brother he never knew and tried to kill. Devon later wakes up and Aunt Virginia Tells him that Nathan, Nate’s father, was is biological father. Feeling guilty of sleeping with and impregnating his brother’s girlfriend, Devon tells Chance that he did not see his attacker. This storyline would earn Y&R an Outstanding Drama Series EMMY Award.
What do you think about this?
Give me your ideas of how you would make this show better.
