And in story-related news... Chuck Pratt kills all of them with a tornado.

LOL discodan (kinda scary though...now I wonder...) I actually would tune into AMC if they brought Brooke, Bianca and Hayley back.

Still more negativity...ugh.

Anyways, I am so excited! This is great news for AMC. I think some of them could possibly stay, maybe a little after. Theres no telling. I think this boosts morale for the show a little bit. But wait, didn't Eden Riegel just say last week that it wouldn't work out with her coming back to the show?? Hm. Funny how things change! Anywho, this is great! I hope AMC improves a little more next year!

Great news but if I was Julia Barr I would give them two middle fingers up for the way they treated her at the end

Like I posted on the Pine Valley Podcast. Aggie Nixon needs to tell them all like she did to Vickie - I created you. Then she points at Pratt and says but he destroyed you all! Then they all ___ him ____. Insert your own soap ending. I said push him down the elevator shaft.

Shoot him, send him to a desert island, whatever, just get rid of him.

There once was a soap writer named Pratt
Who I want to squish to death like a gnat
He runied my beloved AMC
Along with his friend Fronsie
Get rid of them both like that!

I could care less about Levin and Eva, but Julia Barr? OMG, that's my girl Brooke!! I didn't plan to watch, but I'll be front and center now.

I second that...Julia Barr totally got a raw deal!! ...AMC will never will be complete without Brooke English....the only gal that could ever put Erica Kane in her place!! Smile Brooke was at that funeral, and then she just vanished into thin air...no farewell, no explanation...nothing!!! For an actress that had been with AMC since 1976, that was wrong on so many levels...ABC definitely treats their vets like crap, no matter what soap you're on, and that is quite a shame, not to mention pathetically sad!!!! Sad That was kinda the beginning of the end for me tuning in to watch. I'll probably watch her return though, and I've got to say that she's one classy woman to come back, as I would have told them to go to hell!

Below is a quote from Ms. Barr, that kind of sums it all up Sad

"I am so proud to have been a part of a show that was once a television icon"

Abc and pratt need to listen up us fans want Julia Barr back on screen asap.We miss the erica/brooke feud

I was so hoping that Julia would be asked back before the show moves to LA since it will most likely be the last opportunity for Brooke to appear. I hope they get to have some substantial dialogue instead of a two-line guest appearance. Now if they could just have Dick Shoberg back for the anniversary too. And would it be too much to have Palmer, Daisy & Nina reunite for a Palmer Cortlandt farewell?

AllMyDaysatGh, it seems YOU'RE the negativity in this thread. Yours was the post that made me roll my eyes, anyway. (It's all about perspective.)

I'm very excited to hear Julia Barr is coming back, yet I agree it would be awesome if she could sneak a middle finger into a scene. Surely she could clean a little smush from the corner of one eye...

Conspicuously absent from this list is the latest vet to be "Brooked". No sign of Walt Willey. I was never a fan of his, but...poor guy.

Wow... crazy casting day... between AMC's big netting and GH getting Chad Brannon back for an episode...

Wondering how I was negative??

And Walt Willey recently joined Twitter and said he was shooting some scenes with Susan Lucci on Wednesday (today) so we'll be seeing him back on the show. He said he hopes for a "Jerica" reunion.

Nina is coming back too from what I read at Soapnet...is Palmer (James Mitchell) officially off the show? How can they reduce his character to the doldrums? He is just as sprig as Phil Carey was before he was asked to go recurring. Palmer Cortlandt, this is a man who trained a doberman to kill his one true love Daisy on the eve of a masquerade party she crashed all so she could catch glimpses of their daughter Nina, whom she was forced to abandon at a very young age. I wish they had scenes from that party on You Tube!

Obviously, AllmyDaysatGh, the vast majority of people posting these days recognize what a train wreck AMC is, yet everytime we try to get together on a thread and commiserate, there you are trying to tell us how to feel again. Hence, my eye-rolling.

This is great news!!! But I am with you, Luke, if only some of these favs were returning for good. And also I'm shocked that Pratt knew that this would be AMC's 40th anniversary.
Now if only bring in another head writer.

Never once in my comment did I try to "tell" anyone how to feel...please tell me how I did that? And me simply saying "ugh" to the negativity is just what it is. I don't like seeing all the negativity about that show, am I allowed that? This is not just a place for the "vast majority" of people who think AMC is a bad soap, it's for everyone who watches AMC, whether they like how its going or not.

Also, you said "yet everytime we try to get together on a thread and commiserate, there you are trying to tell us how to feel again"

I'm sorry, but who is "we"? Is "we" everyone who thinks AMC is a horrible soap? Are "they" the only ones who get to commiserate and talk about AMC in comments? I must have missed that when I signed up.

You have a point. However, I continue to eye-roll at that comment about people's negativity, which adds nothing to the conversation other than to point out the obvious, which is plenty of people think AMC sucks right now. Pointing it out everytime we do it is just obvious and repetitive. We can all see that many of us think what was once a great show is now horrible.

What are you trying to accomplish by pointing it out yet again?

I guess I just think aloud to much. I'll never voice my feelings towards peoples negativity again, ok? Alright.

Don't go away mad. If you are going to express an opinion, you have to expect to get reaction. You seem to have a problem with people who disagree with you.

Nah I don't have a problem at all with people who disagree with me. And I don't have a problem with you either. You got me, and I saw no other way to own up to it but to promise not to get mad at peoples opinions and move on. And I'll do just that! No worries

Well Soapoperanetwork.com is also reporting that Wiley is back for a few episodes, so at least we get Jack back for a little while...

Surprise surprise TV Gord is battling with posters again while pretending to not completely loath AMC. I'm just glad its not me this time who is being shoved around. BTW AllMyDays - you'll never win an argument with Gord.

Good grief. I thought people were allowed to disagree on a message board. I guess I stumbled into the happiest place on earth, where everyone agrees all the time.

I wonder if they will find Brooke still standing at Simone's grave, where they left her three years ago.

Hey I have no problem with disagreements on message boards, I think it adds to the fun of it. Theres no possible way everyone can agree all the time.
