    Congrats to CM and LH! :) Now I need to hear that VI is onboard, so my wonderful David/Cara/Baby Dara saga continues! :)

    I think that they are going to try and groom Lindsay to be the new leading lady of AMC, since it doesn’t seem like Susan Lucci will be joining the cast. I just have a feeling that’s what’s happening. She is a talented actress, but those are hard shoes to follow….and notice I did not say fill, cause no one can do that.

    I’m glad they’ve gotten LH to sign – and will be VERY happy if VI does too.

    Not so glad about CM staying on, though. To put it mildly. His character has been overplayed, over-exposed, and over-acted for about the past 10 years. And “Ryan”, along with the other members of the sextet of suckage and the Carey’s are a large part (due to Frons’ insistence that they be the focus) of AMC’s decline.

    I wish CM the best, but I deeply wish that meant we’d never have to see or hear Ryan Lavery ever again.

    Hope more actors sign on but the last few years — poor writing and moving from NYC to LA — have been hard on them.

    Happy about CM & LH. Hope they sign the rest. Especialy MK & CM. And of course WW, AM, etc. Maybe SL will change her mind. From what I read in her book, I’m surprised she hasn’t signed. Maybe that will change.

    Mixed news. Glad some marquee stars are on board. As much as I like AMC, and VI, I could do without more of the David story. I will appreciate the “resurrection” plot line as a means to end a storied broadcast run for a fave serial, but for a relaunch, I would prefer a new start with Pine Valley citizens off the canvas. That way, we get history to link old and new, and focus on family and relationships. I tend to tune out when stories step far beyond the realm of reality, so my emotions at seeing AMC end are not as strong. I thin Lindsay Hartley could be a longtime leading lady. As for Cameron Mathison, I do like the actor but never warmed to the character Ryan Lavery.

    I agree with you. At this point, there are a lot of characters that I wouldn’t be sad to see go….. Starting with Marissa & Bianca. I can’t for the life of me, understand why AMC will not get rid of the Marissa character. I know that the last actress wasn’t that popular, but I don’t think this one is either….actually, I don’t think it has anything to do with the actresses…it’s just the whole character. And I don’t like or agree with how suddenly she and Bianca are an overnight item. I would love to see Colby, Liza, JR (which is happening), Ryan, Brott, Maya & Madison to all disappear off the canvas. Also, a dream of mine….Jackson to kick Erica to the curb!! This man has been chasing her around like a lost puppy dog for far too long….Grow a pair and move on Jackson!

    This is good i hope they put out good writing and good acting. Would be nice to see some fact based stories that are true but hard to believe … Lindsey hartley is a good actress and i’ve grown fond of her character. I hope that opal lives on too.
