    Y&R October 2018 Discussion Thread

    Ok, so I'm not overall happy with the show, but man Eileen Davidson has been killing it. The last couple of episodes have actually been pretty good. Marla Adams continues to amaze. I also enjoyed Phyllis/Billy, although I wish Gina used more restraint. I also don't think the show looks cheap, but the sets aren't as good as they used to be. The show is being slimmed down, not sure what people expect. Soaps are a dying breed, and have basically reinvigorated themselves on Primetime as "dramas" with higher production (see. GoT). I don't really see Summer as the victim, but Billy did take advantage of her and that's messed up. So far, the fallout has been good. I really hope it's Tessa behind the blackmail and then she can finally get going. Knowing how this goes, as soon as it's time for Tessa to be gone she will be come much more interesting and her acting will be much better lol The Lily scenes were surprisingly well done.

    I never thought I could dislike Traci, but damn... I'm team Ashely all the way. ED has been brilliant.

    The writing for Jack or maybe it was Bergman delivery but he did very poorly in those scenes. ED writing and acting was on point - 8/10

    It's sad that Bergman acting and the writing ruined what should have been riveting scenes.

    Wow didn't see that Ashley twist coming, but I enjoyed Ashley sticking it to Jack. Screw Jack and Kyle. Eileen Davidson was wonderful. Jack reminded me of Kavanaugh with all that scenery chewing woe-its-me rage. Who else thinks Tessa is behind the letters?

    Interested to see how Sharon Case and the writing goes with this reveal. Hopefully, it's better than the first time with Latham.

    Bill Cosby

    I don't fault @Marco Dane for your first instinct given the history of the United States. However, I don't believe Cosby is completely innocent.

    Who will get Julie Chen's chair?

    Sarah Gilbert will probably take over as anchor

    Bill Cosby

    Didn't think he would go to prison. Not sure how long the appeal proceedings will go, but I can see it being overturned on appeal if granted.

    @YRfan23 I'm late to the party, but thank you so much for that fine episode! Such a treat!

    Vet let go at Y&R

    The sun is definitely setting on Y&R. It's sad to watch. Nobody gives a damn anymore.

    YR actress decides to go recurring...

    I think both groups would be better off working together. I agree the experiences are vastly different, but in this moment both are fighting for equality. Tearing each other down, rather than working together makes it harder to achieve that goal. I believe the same for all minority groups. This is thread is weird to me. Nobody cared about Lily or CK, and now everyone acts like it’s a big deal. Phasing out the Winters is not something I’d want, but the writing for them has been terribly dull. Let’s not forget the Bells have also replaced the original Y&R family the Fosters with the Newmans/Abbott’s. Daytime can definitely be racist, but I don’t feel like this case is. Replacing one minority with another is bad optics though.

    I don't like the Summer storyline, but the scenes with MS/HK were great. The line to Phyllis "this is what happens when woman like you age" was damn hurtful.

    This Summer stuff is grating. I don’t want to see her crushing on Billy like this. Cane is the most insufferable character right now. It’s about the same as Brad and that dumb reliquary storyline.

    Y&R July 2018 Discussion Thread

    I'm playing catch up. The Nick reveal was WTF I'll admit. However, damn Joshua Morrow has been looking damn good ever since the Christian stuff. I also loved the flashbacks of Nick/Victor. Not sure how I feel about Phyllis/Nick, but those scenes were hot. Lastly, OMFG I'm sooooo sad that Hillary is leaving us, but damn are they giving MM a pretty damn good sendoff. I'm not completely done this week yet, but man I've been near tears, everyone is REALLY stepping up. A whole week dedicated to Hillary, I have to say while injustice was done to not keep the actress (although I think she will find MUCH SUCCESS elsewhere), the goodbye scenes have been very well written and I appreciate the time and dedication. Y&R will never be what it once was, I've come to accept that. I don't see the show going on for much longer, so I'm going to enjoy how they shape and explore these characters for what we have left of them - for the most part, it makes sense the motivations.
