Oh no, I had saved some of his videos, but I was a week or so behind.  Does anyone have all of them?

Brandon Denson is on the FB group The Young and the Restless - The Classic Years. He is posting some clips there. I recommend everyone here join. Janice Lynde is a member, so is Tracy Bregman and Brenda Epperson. Not sure who else. I know Brenda Dickson was on there a few years ago, but got banned. Janice actually posts on the group here and there and they even got Jess Walton to send a video for the Fake Jill day (where they celebrate all the Jill's, lol) The group can be busy sometimes and quiet others.

The 1986 episodes are great thanks @BoldRestless for sharing. What a blast to see Sandra Nelson as the flight attendant. I guess we could add that to the double duty thread.

 

 

OMG, I didn't even notice that!!! I can't believe I missed that - she looks exactly the same too!

I'm gonna pause my 1991 watch to view those 1986 episodes! Thanks again!!! Right now I'm in November 1991 and I'm convinced this HAS to be one of the Top Five years in Y&R history. Such a transformative year and so much has been done to integrate these new characters into the canvas without sacrificing the existing characters.

 

One key thing that stuns me is just how unbelievably good Victoria Rowell is. She doesn't get the credit she deserves for just what she did here. Bill Bell and Victoria Rowell are a FORCE together. You can tell he is loving writing for her! Something as simple as her getting a $50 raise on her paycheck was such a great character building moment and something that could never work the way writers write soaps today. She can literally do ANYTHING. Now after a chance meeting, she's become friends with Cricket and is interested in becoming a model. Having her interact and develop a REAL friendship with Cricket and Danny is just expanding her character even more. It's amazing seeing how well integrated the black characters are! She brings 110% to any scene given and no matter how slow an episode may be, if you see her you know it'll be worth watching.

 

Another heavy hitter is Nikki's alcoholism which has developed nicely over the year. She has left the ranch maybe twice this year, but it serves a purpose. I also love how they randomly have her in two or three outfits in one day even though she never leaves her home. There are so many subtle, but bizarre things that she's doing and MTS is knocking it out of the park finding different ways to hide her problem from her various family members and Miguel. It's getting to a critical point where Jack is reaching his breaking point and it's a real breakthrough for Peter Bergman as Jack. Also in the Newman household you have 16 year old Victoria losing her virginity after Ryan pressured her into sex. I love that they're actually developing the emotional impact of this and how she truly wasn't ready. And they're even allowing her and Ashley to confront Ryan about his actions. It's a simple story on paper, but the execution is doing so much to continue developing the character of Victoria. In general, most of Bill Bell's plots are very simple, it's the execution that makes them so engrossing. I *so* miss this type of writing!

 

Lastly, I finally understand why people love Sheila so much. I've reached the point where Lauren's son Dylan has died and seeing Sheila's coldness and glee is chilling. She's so subtle, but powerful. The way she's treating her mom and even Scott is getting to the point where I can't see him remaining married to her much longer. When they do break up I know her crazy ass bout to lose it and I cannot wait! This is the most interesting story that Lauren has had since I started watching.

Oh good! That episode is back? I saw a few new ones had been posted but hadn't been able to watch yet. I just loved those scenes. So completely absurd.

 

Please tell me Faren's Sweeney Sisters routine is back too.

Let me just tell you I love your reviews of the classic year you're watching. I'm not in the right place in my life to catch up with the old episodes but reading your reviews definitely makes up for it a little bit.

By that point if I recall right Eric had started a singing/music career and left town. He never found out that he was indeed the father of Julia's daughter Jamie. Julia's new husband Charles adopted her, I think only Victor knew the real truth. By Julia's 2002 Charles had passed away, Jamie was in college and there was no mention of Garrison at all.

He had an affair with JoAnna before vanishing with no further explanation. Julia had left town with his child in December 1984.
