  1. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    That's it! How could I have forgotten???
  2. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Real time is an interesting concept for daytime structure. On the other hand, wasn't there a show (maybe Santa Barbara?) where one month would equal one day or something ridiculous like that.

    Yeah! I'm so glad that MA is as beloved by the cast. Who could've imagined that her presence would have centered the entire Abbott clan after years of drifting? As I said in the spoiler thread, Dina is a character that is completely organic to the Y&R canvas with real, not retcon, relationships and ties to GC that allow for future stories. I'll gladly thank SSM for three things: 1) MA; 2) Restoring Sharon and Neil's dignity and 3) giving Lily back her career.

    @DeeeDee Spot on with Ashley. Though I never understood the need for her multiple breakdowns. It's a bit illogical for the character. If any Abbott should've cracked, it'd be Aunt Jack. It too late now, but Ashley should've been portrayed as strong enough to handle life's obstacles. She was the moral compass to Jack's shady behavior (pre-PB, of course). It could be worse, she hasn't put her head in an oven - yet. Another Bell yuk that undid all the positives that had been established by 'non-Barbie' Traci.

    Which is a huge miss on the show. Lauren is the perfect Y&R character - legacy from the Jabot-intro era, relevant ties to everyone in town, grown-up bad girl, who is warm/loving/rarely weak, intelligent, solid career, etc. And Tracey has always had that 'it' thing - she just connects and I've never seen her phone it in. Lauren can be dropped into almost any storyline. In fact, Lauren and Jack should Hilary's mentors and friends. DIna's story is resonating. Monday's POP ratings just released: 129 YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, T POP 7:00 PM 60 0.06 518 Keep in mind, while down from Friday, last Monday's show did not even make the cable Top 150.

    @Hunk Chandler Massey The big miss on Scott - not nearly enough time with Lauren - to get his personality showing - more like to give him one because he's very 2-dimensional. While Sharon's return to normal has been helped by Scott, he still feel like a new character - not a legacy character who was at the center of one of Y&R's most iconic stories. Scott could literally not be shown again - without explanation - and have zero impact on the show: Lauren would keep showing up for meetings with Phyllis; Sharon would be involved with her kids and Nick; Abby would be at Newman or navigating the Ashley drama; the sex-ring - yeah that could disappear with him.
  7. Y&R: Dina spoiler

    I could see MY writing Dina out, but killing Dina does nothing for the show. All her children have money, so if (when) Graham's claim on will is over, that doesn't do a darned thing for them. Even if Graham somehow got the money, that character doesn't fit in the show. Except for the random Glo-worm encounters, he hasn't developed a single tie on canvas. It would be a pointless move. On the other hand, keeping Dina opens up a lot of possibilities for the entire Abbott family. I hope we discover that Graham was poisoning her and then she tries to get MI back from TWG with the settlement having her join them. MA has had good interactions with Bryton and KSJ. Plus, being Kay's BFF, it wouldn't be so bad to see Dina dish out some good ol' Katherine advice to Devon, etc. Plus Dina can get all up in Newman stories with her connection to Victor, hatred of Nikki and, of course, Abby. There's plenty of mileage left in a character with so many organic and REAL ties to GC. This is a case where they don't have to rewrite history to make it work.

    That's good to know. Perhaps, people like me heard the episode was good and decided to watch/DVR from POP. I refuse to watch the CBS feed after the constant irrelevant interruptions that are better left to cable news.
  9. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Did CBS pre-empt (even partially) this past Friday's Y&R? The POP ratings were exceptionally high (like 200K more viewers and almost double the demo under SSM). 133 YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, T POP 7:00 PM 60 0.07 678
  10. Y&R: Dina spoiler

    So Graham has medical power of attorney and takes Dina away.
  11. Y&R: Dina spoiler

    Since the story has been adjusted several times, now that we know Graham is all for revenge, they should reveal he has been poisoning/drugging her, which made her illogically sell etc. End it and let MA rule GC as JC's very worthy successor. Since no DNA test was run 30+ years ago, I'd love it if Ash was really John's. It's plausible since John/Dina were sleeping together- Traci was born years later.
  12. B&B - October Discussion Thread

    See this was my point about Brad repeating himself with the same two primary stories - nefarious scheme to destroy/steal ($B and SheDevil) and now using the exact same (and unrealistic) plot device to expose the affair. There are literally hundreds of other ways to reveal to Quinn. Why use the same thing?
  13. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    @ranger1rg My mom persuaded my to watch Friday (US) on POP and it was far better than I expected. I'll admit I'm a MA fan and she just kicks butt. MM scenes - though short were effective- the Jack 'we're friends' and 'I've got eyes' to Cassiah were perfect. Sometimes less is more. Neil's toast to Ash was a good example of how SSM's reform of Neil (and Sharon) were the best things she did. The only thing that was a bit bizarre was not having deeper scenes with Traci and Abby - their worlds are rocked even more so than Ash who's been living with this for 30+ years. But I suppose they're holding that for future fallout.
  14. B&B - October Discussion Thread

    Did H8ie really tell Widge she was 'rooting for him' to get back with Brooke? This is the same H8ie that was obsessed with evil Quidge??? But now he's good enough for her sister? Perhaps H8ie is so evil that her repressed h8red for Brooke and she wants her to be miserable with him - except we know B&B doesn't delve into anything deep...
  15. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    You're not crazy. The show is so bad, slow, that I'm sure others like me are reading day-ahead to see if show is worth watching. IMO, it's not. SSM's damage has been far too great in such a short period of time. And since MY's hands have had to be involved, I'm not optimistic about the near-term.
