I just find the whole thing massively disappointing.VJ was a character too ingrained in the show to have his age messed about with but what we're left with is some very awkward halfway house.In Jett a

I think one of the main problems with the recast was that everything happened too fast. I was completely ready to accept Matt Little as VJ, because recasts and SORASing happens, that's how soaps work.

Though you're leaving out the fact that he's the only one to have played him for nearly 7 out of the 13 years VJ's been on the show, not to mention that all those before him (with perhaps the exceptio

What I hate about this recast is that VJ has completely changed his attitude. For example, when he punched Matt, I really wanted Matt to punch him back.

It's only recently i've noticed that with usually only one exception per era, lets say Dex for instance even back to the Welsh days 99% of the males have to be alpha/macho or have a high degree of that. That was never, ever V.J. who knew how to stay in his own lane. The fact that it's been changed does annoy me no end.

I don't think Matt Little is that good of a actor either. But putting that aside, once a character is recast whatever the show their personality attitude often changes.

Hmm.. Sorry, don't agree. Flynn didn't really change, neither did Hayley that much. With V.J. It's like it's this secret child of Leah's we have never seen before has come to town. Completely different to what he was before.

I think this recast has ruined the character. It's a shame because I think Leah's coma could have been an emotional storyline but it is completely falling flat because it's hard to feel anything other than annoyance towards this new VJ.

I didn't want to think this but after seeing the last few episode he's been in you are correct. If they wanted Matt Little so much, fine. Create a new character for him. But to sacrifice a long running character like V.J. for what?

Nepotism at it's finest folks.

Yep.... after watching the last few eps it has really sunk in that this would be a far better storyline if it was being done by normal VJ and not fake VJ.

When will the PTB realize that this recast is just plain not working?!

LOL. Never. When have they EVER admitted their mistakes?

They'll just continue to stick their fingers in their ears and go "La la la la la i am not listening"
