    Why? Dear god, WHY? Please let Burton change his mind and decide to go sell Monavie back in Tennessee! I don’t want him on Y&R and I understand why GH fans don’t want him back there! EEEESH! Isn’t there an “Out Of This World” reunion special he could be ruining?! Ugh.

    Lmao no kidding! Guess he doesn’t mind being JFP’s bitch as long as he’s getting paid.

    I don’t particularly dislike Steve Burton but I don’t want him on GH or Y&R. On GH his character took over the entire show, now other characters have storylines and I honestly don’t miss him on that show one bit. As for Y&R, his character is just so dull and boring that I want him off my screen almost as much as I want Scott Clifton off my screen during B&B, sadly neither will happen any time soon!

    I didn’t watch Steve Burton on GH so I had no feelings either way on him joining Y&R… but everyone is right…Dylan is boring.

    IMO they made a HUGE mistake taking him out of Sharon’s story line because when he first arrived I was interested & watching him. A love interest long time viewers were familiar with could have made all the difference.

    And I would have rather him be the real Phillip Chancellor than Nikki’s kid. That role would have been perfect for his “nice guy” character. Instead they have Katherine giving Devon the Chancellor money and Victor with Chancellor Industries. NOT believable -just too stupid for words.

    Ok I will confess to having been a huge Jason fan when SBu was on GH. I will even confess to tuning into Y&R because of him….but guess what… I tuned back out. He is the biggest snooze as Dylan on that show. I have tried and tried…but the character of Dylan sux. I may tune back into YR, now that my Robert is back on there as Colin. Who knows maybe I will find SBu has settled into his new role…but from the sounds of this board, I don’t think that is going to happen. From how hard he tries on Twitter to be friendly, I don’t think he is enjoying the same adoring fans as he had over on GH.

    Oh well, the role of Jason can always be recast if they want to bring that character back on GH. I hope he enjoys his time on YR.

    That’s the thing about lackluster actors; they’re tolerable when they’re young and hot but can become unbearable as they get older (i.e., Drake Hogestyn, Ron Moss,etc). I don’t quite put Burton in the latter category b/c he’s still nice to look at, in an orangey kinda way ;) It’s just that they’ve created a dull as dishwater character in Dylan, and then paired him with other new characters which renders him irrelevant — PAINFULLY irrelevant.

    I don’t want Burton back on GH, but not sure if BM would want to play good guy vs. bad seed AJ, when the AJ role is more tailor made for BM. As bad as Ron’s writing has become lately, not sure any of this matters anyway… :(

    I couldn’t state it any better than what DanMan had to say. I guess we need to take up a donation and get that asshole out of that disgusting blue suit.
    He not only can’t act, his momma dresses him funny, too.

    Agent Orange extends his stay in JFP’s Genoa City. What a surprise! NOT.

    This coma inducing no-talent will continue to eat this show alive. Phelps’ version of GH in Wisconsin continues. Her pet monkey ain’t goin’ anywhere.

    The more airtime Dylan sucks up the less I like Y&R. There’s another pairing that doesn’t help either, but that’s beside the point.

    I really don’t have anything against Burton either.

    I just don’t want this character on my show. At all. Or Tyler.

    Other than that, I’m a pretty happy YR camper these days. I pray it lasts.

    [quote=RealisticViewer]I agree with most of the other posters – Steve as Dylan is a dullard. He is just another Jason – sullen and dry – with just another name. Can this actor play anything else?[/quote]

    Simply put, no.

    Alright. Let the Jason recasting commence.

    However, a Jason/Robin storyline would have been enough for me to welcome him back to GH. Jason/Robin with a different actor wouldn’t have much impact, I’m afraid.

    Sorry, I just don’t like him as Dylan. The character was never written right, he’s boring. I liked Steve Burton on GH till Phelps had him praticuly take over the show. They made a “hitman” into a hero which I never could accept. May-be if they gave him a better story-line on Y &R. Dylan and Avery have 0 chemistry. Just my opinion.

    Moustache, love the video!! Angry Miz Girl from Monday Night Raw.

    I think Dylan would be good in small doses. Dont make him take over the show. It seems like they have with everybody talking about him on the show all the time.

    I WOULD PERSONALLY LIKE DILDO BEST, “IN NO DOSES” This guy is one of the worse actors to ever be on Y and R.

    Where is my Queen LADIVA to grace us with some excellent, on-POINT commentary?

    Though I know it, it’s hard work to be a Diva, you can *not* do it every day!

    I know where ya at – at a beach somewhere with your Alexis Carrington HAT on sipping Mai Tais, served by musclebound beach boys! LOL!

    I hope he is happy at Y&R, but GH DOES need him back. I like Shaun, but he is not Jason. Steve Burton does not deserve all the hate he gets on here. I feel quite sure that eventually he will come back to GH after all David Tom came back to Y&R.

    I think the hate you describe above really should be directed more at Phelps.

    A lot of us don’t really hate Burton, but the way Phelps weaved him like a plague through the show in just a matter of months.

    It is what it is at this point.

    The only way I would be happy with this decision is if they hired Maureen Flanagan who played Evie on Out of This World to be his love interest…then I could at least pretend it was a cheese-tastic reboot of ‘Out of This World’.

    Agreed.. nothing against Burton as I never watched GH so I’m not too familiar with him, but the way they shoved him down our throats was a bit much… then they made him a Newman… like that’s supposed to make us instantly care about him.

    Wow, no massive trumpeting of SBu re-upping, no massive media coverage, letting everyone know, every day for weeks on end, no interviews on various talk shows, etc? JFP is slipping …

    OR

    She didn’t want the fans to know about this because of the general malaise toward SBu as it is, so she “let” Billy Miller out of his contract by refusing to give him the one thing he wanted (outs) and then fired Michael Muhney and, less than two week later, a very suspicious anonymous post was written that he allegedly “groped” King, thus creating a firestorm among both Miller and Muhney fans, both of whom were extremely popular and more talented in their little fingers than SBu would ever be.

    Seems to me someone may have snuck this guy under the radar so fans didn’t get a chance to have a major outcry against his re-upping…(my personal opinion on this, which will hold for as long as Dumbo Dylan rules the airways at Y&R)…
