    Y&R: January Spoilers

    Haha. Thanks. Your memory of Good Times is impressive! The portrayal of Mia is so one-note, and, like you say, there’s no one to call her on her sh!t. Even Abby barely said, “Hey, bitch, aren’t you married? I’m sure your husband would love to know what you’re up to.” I do wish we had a grande dame who could lay the smackdown on folks. Someone like a Jill or a Katherine (or what Dru and Nina could have been eventually). It’s what all the remaining soaps are missing, really, aside from Days with Julie and Maggie from time to time. The losses of Stephanie, Tracy, and Katherine have been super damaging IMO.

    LOL. Just saw CoCo Vandeweghe and Mackenzie McDonald are the subjects of TC’s new season of My Tennis Life. (I swear Nicole Gibbs, Sam Groth, Lucie Safarova, and Jared Donaldson were all jinxed by it.) Tennis Channel must have a great ad sales team pimping it to sponsors, as I’m surprised it has enough viewership online to sustain it. Not that it’s very interesting: they didn’t even cover Donaldson’s “The mark was Right! Here!” tantrum at Monte Carlo last year, which is the sort of juicy content an audience would watch for.

    It’s like two steps forward and three steps back with Mia. I don’t get her dual desire to flirt with Arturo and antagonize Abby while trying to work on her marriage with Rey while thwarting Sharon. She’s just all over the place with no real insight into her motives other than troublemaking for its own sake.

    Y&R January 2019 Discussion Thread

    The problem is that the identity of this person is not that compelling. It’s been drawn out so long that I hardly remember the original story to begin with (they should have at least kept TL for flashbacks or hauntings or filmed some scenes for later airings when they had him), and, since we’ve been burned so many times, we know that the reveal will ultimately be a whimpering anticlimax. JT might be the most ridiculous, worthless MacGuffin I’ve seen on soaps in a while.

    Narrative convenience almost always trumps realism re: prison visits and most soapy things. Speaking of suspension of disbelief, there’s a rumor:

    There’s been a touch of backlash, which I don’t want to overstate.

    Novak gets through a fading Medvedev in four.

    Novak is up two sets to one now. Medvedev looks depleted, but still dangerous, and Novak is in a 0-30 hole in his first service game in the 4th set.

    OMG Kei! Wins with an ace! PCB was PISSED. Didn’t shake umpire’s hand at the end. Thought a point in the super TB that was overruled and awarded to Kei should have been replayed. Full TB posted to YouTube: Coric out to Pouille! Zverev out to Raonic! Novak has split sets with Daniil, losing the 2nd in a TB.

    Pliskova looks lethal.

    Zverev falls again in a Slam. He didn’t show up in those first two sets, but once he actually exerted some effort in the third, it was too late, and Raonic took advantage.

    What is going on with Sascha Zverev? 👀

    Svitolina just beat Madison in a bizarre, topsy-turvy match to make the Aussie QFs for the second straight year. Meanwhile, if Osaka is to advance to meet Svitolina, she’ll have to come back from a set down again, this time against Cryface Sevastova.
