    I’m not a fan of shows rewriting their history just to prop a current plot or character. I hated it when Guza and Phelps did it at GH years ago and I still hate it.

    Even more I hate when a show rewrites the history of a character on another show just to prop a plot. So the Ryan’s Hope rewrite of Delia’s history irritates me.

    I hated it when Frons or whoever at ABC ordered it because they wanted Linda Dano on One Life To Live so we ended up with the rewrite of the Chandlers on AMC and the Quartermains on GH just to prop his current stunt. And a few years later Linda Dano was gone and pretty much all was rewritten again or forgotten.

    It was all sickening.

    @Mike Just as Y&R is doing with the Dylan character In an attempt to firmly plant him into the show. I watched Y&R all through that cult storyline and, maybe memory is failing, but I really don’t recall Nikki being pregnant.

    I was thinking of that story too.

    Days did it with the Daniel being the son of Maggie too. I watched that story and it was a total rewrite of her history and even of Alice Horton’s history too.

    It is just lazy writing.

    It appears Y&R is near 5 million if anyone hasn’t heard…………..
