Y&R: December 2016 Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

The benefit was rich, lush, well done. Ashley, Nikki, and Hilary looked like soap divas. Victor and Nikki wanting to bid on their own donation

I hope Ravi won't be paired with Abby. That would be the end of the poor guy.

 

Great stuff with Hilary being nervous and encouraged by Devon. That little bottle-opening moment was very funny.

 

And tricking Hilary to say that on live TV was a great ending.

 

Something about Billy rubbed me very wrong. He was sarcastic towards the security guy and it didn't work. But he kinda made up for it with his reaction to Victor's news.

 

Nick & Chelsea.... Zzzzzz. He could have humped the pillow instead and would have generated more fire and passion.

Such harsh words for the talented stud that is Joshua Morrow.

It is always about racism.

 

Choosing to wear blinders & swearing it isn't because it makes you uncomfortable to deal with is your problem.

 

And doing exactly that is why daytime soaps are dying & not coming back.

This is a show that won't let Ivy league educated Neil have anything now.

 

To quote my grandma, bought sense is better'n any.  I don't think for a second I'll have to choke out that apology.

I thought Neil graduated from Stanford???  I may be wrong about that but if I'm correct, Stanford is not an Ivy League school.  (I know I'm just splitting hairs)

So, this is how Reed is reintroduced as a teen?

 

I can't find a way to hide it, but obviously don't click if you want to wait until the US airing.

If they are doing it to have him work for newmans/abbots then keep it. If it's so he can be self made with his own publishing/media empire in 2 years then I won't hate it and will apologize to all and asunder for my valid distrust of this show. 

 

 I don't understand the worry about Devon losing any money. He doesn't even have to be self-made to get it back. He automatically gets better than a do over when Tucker dies. At that point he can come back much wiser ,and with a vengeance, at whoever stole Kay's money from him. Devon had to split Kay's fortune. Since he's Tucker's only heir he'd get the company and all the money. Devon would have to lose 2 fortunes to end up working for the Abbotts/Newmans.

No blockbusters but SS and KA seem adept at doing small things really well. That moment where Hillary is trying to figure out the proper pronunciation of a French word and looks at Devon, who says that the group home where he lived didn't have French language courses was a good moment of recognition, that even though Devon may be wealthy now, he remembers the struggles of the past.  Hillary also had a similar moment recalling her Mother's struggle with alcoholism, without going into detail (although anyone familiar with her backstory, of course, knew what she meant).

 

 

 

They finally brought up where Devon came from. & shouldn't want to go back there ever again. In reality they should write him as a workaholic, make sure he never be poor again.

The teleprompter gag pretty much proves what I've been saying that this is humorous, if not impactful. It was funny and I giggled but it was never going to be a jaw-dropping moment, so it's good that they put this in the middle of the week, rather than trying to make it into a Friday episode.

 

Considering how sad previous formal events have looked, this one was decently done. Y&R having those big blockbuster events with dignitaries and countless extras can't be done at this point, so what they've produced was fine.

Where's the heat between Nick and Chelsea?  I don't see it, I don't feel it. And the preview for the next episode, where Nick begs Chelsea to stay makes him look desperate and horny.

 

This was a pleasant episode with a little gotcha moment. I couldn't really find much objectionable about it. 

 

Fantastic post.

 

I missed that where Devon said that unfortunately. Great little moment.

 

And I thought the same thing about Nick begging Chelsea to stay in tomorrow's episode.

Watching Wednesday's show and I'm just rapt. I have to watch till the end to see if they can go another episode where next to nothing happens. Sally has returned YR (so far) to the Bell glory days when many episodes went by with no plot movement.  I never liked most of Bill Bell's hour long years.  It moved too slowly but I know that s what his die hard fans loved.  I loved the show when it was 30 min.  Wow, just got to the end.  Really with Hillary reading the teleprompter. Sally is rusty!  I'll give her a chance though.

Why did Pratt have much higher ratings then SS/KA

 

If his ratings was so good, why he got fired?

How do the very same people who abstractly acknowledge the institutional racism of daytime television still deny the consequences of its factual reality?

 

Are you counting down to the end of soaps?

I'm loving the way they've been styling Hilary lately and her and Devon actually seem like rich people now.

 

They sure did. That penthouse works for them. But I think everyone has been looking great lately. They all seemed wealthy this past episode. Having Nick and Chelsea at the ranch, as opposed to the tack house, even elevated them.

definitely had the classic Y&R  party setting, and the bidding scenes (especially the end) were a lot of fun! I loved Cane winning the dress over Victor.

Nick and Chelsea are still very zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......but I thought it was cute how Faith fell asleep with those glasses on....
