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.

I enjoyed today's episode!

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....

    • First...*waves @Mr. Vixen* and congrats on the next book.   I think...it's Brenda so what could go wrong? Please register in order to view this content   But seriously, it is a great concept. And ohhh how my mind sees so many angles and what you wrote. I would love to see a series like this.   As for me...I might have to chew on what I would do as a spinoff for a spell...:) 
    • Would these rather creepy drawings entice you to devote 1 hr each morning to 2 new soaps?
    • RHOD   Now that was much, much better.   So clearly for me, it had to be who was spotlighted. For the last few episodes, the focus has been on Brandi, Kary, and Stephanie with LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron getting moments here and there, but most in the background. This episode was the end of the Oaklahoma trip and heading back to Dallas. Once there, the show shifted to individual scenes so it was only natural that it shifted since the stronger people with individual scenes (and are still somewhat likeable) are LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron. And I liked all of them. And ooooo at the next leg of the LeeAndra family drama. I keep saying...she's so what soap opera heroines are made of. And as usual...the next nugget she gave in the saga of her vs her brother produced new questions. Hopefully, the answers will start to be revealed as LeeAndra goes to meet with her mother-in-law next week.    Meanwhile, the trip started boring AF. But it ended in a good place I felt. The highlight for me was Tiffany, Kameron, and Brandi (yes, I said Brandi) performing the Bend and Snap from LEGALLY BLONDE as their warmup routine for the series of games Stephanie had set up for everybody. And not shocked that Kary does not know how to give a sincere apology so her trying to apologize to Charles the guy from last week fell flat for me.    And surely I am not the only person who saw that Brandi was clearly preggers on the trip.    Things to make you go hmmmm...   LEEANDRA. Well, well, well. Where do I start? Just like Ashley Abbott finding out that John Abbott was not her dad shattered her, there appears to be more to the story of the events surrounding LeeAndra's Dad's death. And as she was talking to Jeremy, for the first time I wondered if she had considered therapy or hmmm hypnotism? It sounded like either she was editing herself for television or that she might have blocked some of that day out. I thought she had been the one to find the body if I remember correctly...or am I wrong? She definitely saw it. And the reveal of her finding out that her mother-in-law put the one will on the bed day of death...and then Mama Dee's actions with the other will....and I'm wondering how BOTH of the moms factored into the breakdown in the relationship between LeeAndra and her brother. I get LeeAndra's reasoning for not telling him of the death immediately, but it sounded like the mother in law went all out to keep them separated. And then...Mama Dee made a deal with the Dad insuring that LeeAndra would get the inheritance in the first place. But then Mother in Law pushed for a court fight. I mean...WOW!!! This was just the stuff of good soaps. I'll say this much...LeeAndra's relationship with her family has always been her throughline throughout her time on the show and it continued to bear so much fruit for her. And that fruit continues to be juicy. And yes, I love the followup from the letter a few episodes back.    KAMERON. God, Court is hot. lol. That said...I enjoyed her misadventures with moving this week. The packing. The ribbing from Court. The psychic from an earlier episode. Court accepting it all even with an eyeroll. Who didn't like Kameron's dog? It has been natural that she is still mourning Louie and worrying about him as she moves into her dream house. Meanwhile, Kameron was fun on the trip...except for when she got angry over the bed prank that went wrong. Yeaaah...mess with my sleep, I'm a bitca, too. Please register in order to view this content   TIFFANY. Wow at her and Kameron getting along. If only it would last. Meanwhile awwww at her and her mother coming to some understanding. That was a talk that needed to happen.  Tiffany always brings the real and I will be sadden if she does decide to leave at the end of this season. And I hollered at her and the twins' science project. That was my project in elementary school so it was a cute little walk down memory lane.   BRANDI. *side-eye*   STEPHANIE. Who?   KARY. Lint.   So next week we are going to be on the mansion from DALLAS? Good. That means also we are at the end of the season.              
    • They said the show is so bad they no longer have the energy to keep up with it. 
    • Yes, the 'I'm blind and will be a burden so I'll be noble and lie' was something out of a 1930's radio soap and didn't work in 1976. Bill should have been more inventive in finding away to create a wedge b/w Brad and Leslie.
