The Young and the Restless: December 2014 Thread

Recommended Posts

I know Gwen's primary function right now is as Devon's pretend girlfriend but I hope they don't make the same mistake that they made with Hillary by sticking her with someone right away. When the secret is out and Hillary and Devon are discovered, even before that, TPTB should have Gwen interact with others in her age group, to see who she clicks with, not just romantically either-- there are lots of different types of chemistry.

It is kind of fun to see Mariah and Summer continually rub each other the wrong way but I would like to see the writers take the next step in their dynamic. I thought it might be Mariah deflowering Fen but if the speculation about that new Casting Call pans turns out to be true, I think I can see what that next level might turn out to be.

Phyllis definitely needs someone to keep her from riding too high for too long. I was all set to see Kelly leave but if she turns venomous and becomes a thorn in Phyllis' side there may be use for her yet, at least for awhile. She can play the Diane to Phyllis. Not the Maura West variety, the Alex Donnelly or Susan Walters brand of Diane.

I am pretty sure Gwen was brought on to be paired with Devon. She is the other side of that triangle that originally thought to make with Neil. I fully expect her and Devon to be together as a couple before the affair comes out. Someone has to keep Devon and Hilary apart. A pregnant Gwen is just the thing. However, they do need to have her interact with others in her age group besides her love interest (Devon) and her rival for his affections (Hilary). I don't understand why Lily, Devon, and Hilary aren't interacting with Mariah, Noah, Summer, Abby, and Austin. I excluded Peter Pan because he is not in their age group.

Phyllis is a terror riding through town causing misery as she goes. When she told Jack that she always gets her way the other day, I hollered! She definitely needs an ego checker.

I loved today's show. The Mariah/Summer rivalry is soapy perfection. I hope Phyllis's schemes blow her ass up! I'm loving hating her.

Oh, I definitely think that's happening. Every once in awhile she says something really off the wall, that shows how much rage she has inside. Like when she said if she knew who Jack had been dating she'd have to kill her. I know some think Kelly is going to lose it, but I think Phyllis will. I'd say either Kelly is pregnant or Phyllis is going to catch her and Jack having sex.

I think I just saw the guy who plays the jerk detective on State of Affairs. I think he's a terrible actor on Y&R but he's not bad at all on State of Affairs. Amazing what a bit of rehearsal and true direction can do.

I love the guy..He rocks that part on State of Affairs..I thought he was good on Y&R too..He is hot in a rough sort of way.

I wonder if that was in the script or he thought of it his own fine self. It really was a nice touch.

Avery looked like she was very close to jumping Joe today. I predict desk sex in the near future.

With a few exceptions the show has been pretty good lately. The writing is okay, the acting is on the upswing overall, the music is better as is the lighting and the directing has improved as well.

Justin is doing a great job and his acting is great...So happy with his rendition of Adam..Glad he is still a bad boy..And he does not smirk or smack his lips like MM...No FF for me now.

Now I know you are on crack. Don't insult Jack Smith by comparing his work to this.

Cassadine the thing is this kind of writing is very smart psychological writing that is not meant to appeal to masses. What I am seeing what Jean has done is get into our pysches with this writing and make us think. I feel smarter and more upscale as viewer watching the soap psychological dynamo galore on my screen. It's the least campy y and r has been in years and follows the Bell and Allen formula. Again some shows dumb u down this one makes u think and gain some IQ points.

If I wanted to feel smarter after watching TV I'd watch PBS. I watch soaps to be entertained. tongue.png

I like the new Adam as well. I hated the last one and probably because i enjoyed Chris Engen in the role so much. I can't wait to see JH interact with the rest of the cast. He and SC as Sharon could be smokin' in written correctly. Always hated Adam and Sharon before but I'd go for a second round now. Throw in a Sharon/Chelsea rivalry and even better.

I just want this Devon/Hilary story over already. It's gone on waaaaay too long. And when is Neil going to get his eyesight back? I'd rather he gradually get it back without telling anyone and it is him that sees Devon/Hilary "together" for himself.

Maybe if you started out with an IQ of 50.

Phyllis is such a hateful wench. I am hoping Kelly turns the tables on her. Agree to plan her wedding but at the wedding expose and reveal all. A great soap twist would be Kelly pregnant with Jacks baby as it would send Phyllis over the edge.

Leave the baby stories at the horrid show on ABC run by the hack to end all hacks.

This would be a great twist to the storyline.phyllis is such a nasty wench she would be freaking out.

Hell no. IMO, all these women on this show need to fall ill of some disease that makes them all barren. I'm sick of babies on this show. They're only used as props at the end of the day. If anything, the show needs to make Kelly become an equally bitchy rival for Phyllis [a la Diane Jenkins] and go from there.
