  1. Not in My Town - Soapy Ethics

    This actually drives me nuts about soaps. Any company that went up and down and switched CEO's as often as ELQ, Jabot and Newman would be seen as highly unstable and end in disaster. Major corporations do not go through various CEO's every couple months and hostile takeovers every year. I'll add the absurdity of a rich character being somehow dumb enough to tie ALL their assets together and going broke because of that ((AMC's Adam and Palmer)) The bizarre way the legal system and lawyers somehow fail to properly address past indiscretions of certain characters ((Every soap, but I'm specifically thinking of how Victor Newman's various sins never seem to come up during legal battles or how Erica Kane lost custody of her kid to a father who once got the child kidnapped and another time almost killed her by given her aspirin. Any decent RL lawyer would bring these things up))

    Aww. I wish I had not missed the 1998 episode.

    Thank you so so much for telling us. I was literally just wishing someone would upload classic Y&R haha! This is perfect.
  4. Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    THANK YOU. It's sheer insanity that they continue to support that madman. It's only a matter of time before Nikki and Victoria get upset and whine that they all must take a stand against him. This is one of their yearly plots. Next will be Nikki boozing it up and Victor going missing, presumed dead.

    Nikki is really annoying with her endless poor Victor drivel. Nick has been pushed to this behavior by a relentless tyrant of a father. I'm not really a fan of the character, but I find it realistic he'd continue to be sick and tired of Victor's insane need for control. The story would only be better if he also cut ties with Victor's biggest enabler- Nikki. I don't get why TPTB continue to shove Cane and Lily front and center, but let MM leave. I didn't care about Hilary that much, but a lot of it was due to her being tied in with such insufferably boring characters. I'd rather have seen her try and manipulate her way through the Newman family somehow.
  6. AMC briefly had a storyline where Greenlee left Enchantment Cosmetics to work at Revlon. The Revlon deal ended and they changed the company's name to Giavanna or something dumb. I also remember OLTL, under Valentini, had a deal with Campbell's or something for the Go Red Heart Health events. Both OLTL and AMC did. I can't remember which show it was, but the characters made a big show of stuffing goodie bags with V8.
  7. OLTL Tribute Thread

    I thought Cord and the Buchanans purchased the company to stop Dorian's book? Or was he just the one who made the deal for Viki to buy it? I thought Dorian was tossed out of Llanfair after her marriage to Herb allowed Viki to gain control of the estate per a condition in Victor's will? I'm not debating, but just asking since I've only seen chunks of the 80's stories, but not the whole thing. I don't know if one of Victor's will gave Dorian back Llanfair.
  8. OLTL Tribute Thread

    How did Dorian get so rich? The radio guy in this video says she has a billion dollars. I know she got some type of money from Victor's estate, but I also recall her going broke in the mid to late 80's briefly and then she had the Intruder, but the character's wealth still never quite made sense to me after the endless revisions to Victor's will. Todd only got $27 million. Speaking of that, how rich was Viki supposed to be? I always found Viki and Dorian's wealth to be kind of vague and confusing. I think Asa was richer than either of them and at times I got the feeling Todd was also.

    When did Lisa buy the Lakeview? I don't recall her owning it prior to 2001.

    Maybe they could recast or say he wants Jill to have anything he's entitled to regarding the Chancellor fortune. The character seems to be written as rejecting wealth or whatever. It would be nice if Nina returned to demand Chance's stake be protected. Neither do I. The show has been inconsistent with how Chancellor was even formed. I could swear at least once, way in the past, they mentioned it was originally Reynolds Industries. If Jack and Kyle bully their way into that, or especially the house, it will just be more disregard for backstory. I think he might try and argue it was never Katherine's to give since Philip didn't know he existed or some thin excuse like that. I sadly have no faith in the writing team to follow logic or established history.
  11. Y&R June 2018 Discussion Thread

    I am again needing to catch up, but has Jack now been made a Chancellor? That would/could be a fun twist. I hate the thought of him taking the company from Jill, which he'd likely do and Y&R already has an issue with allowing women to be in power, but it's at least in keeping with Dina's past connections. I wish they'd bring Thom Bierdz back if they do go the "Jack takes Chancellor" route since Phillip would have at least as much right to it. But I doubt they will.

    Few things annoy me as badly as the fact Victor has done heinous things to every member of his family, not to mention various others, yet it's never really used to prove he's insane and incapable of properly providing a truly healthy home. Nikki isn't as bad as Sharon, but she certainly wouldn't help him win custody in the real world. Not with her issues. She's kind of a crap mom for not doing everything in her power to help Nick as well, but she'll be excused.
  13. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Amen. It's annoying how there seems to be a ton of All My Children popping up on my subscriptions, but not any new ATWT.
  14. Y&R June 2018 Discussion Thread

    I'm catching up on the last several episodes. Nikki and Victor are just beyond words with their hypocrisy. It drives me crazy when a show ignores reality to such an extent. Even with Sharon having a scandalous history, Victor and Nikki have literally zero room to preach and I wish they would have their pasts shoved in their faces more often. Sharon at least has a diagnosed mental illness and will admit she's done bad things. Nikki just becomes a drunken mess, while still managing to be uppity, and Victor's truly a psychopath.

    I liked the Brooke/Stephanie dynamic for the first several years, but then B&B started making Brooke do far out incredibly manipulative and selfish things, like screwing her daughter's husband, yet had damn near every character excusing her behavior as not being her fault. It kinda reminds me again of how Y&R tried to re-write history as Katherine being a saint.
