Haha, I look forward to them. Yes I tried to go through the SOD synopsis as well for Y&R and it is so bad. I thought by 1979 when they mag went tri-weekly and again when it went bi-weekly around 80 or 81 that it would be better, but somehow it is worse, lol.
Haha, oh those were a real hoot. I had to stop because SOD's writeups were too slapdash and would go into extreme detail about minutia, while flipping back and forth between stories and skipping over entire plot points. It just read like someone watched the episodes in real time and threw together the scenes they saw that seemed interesting in the moment, and didn't connect them to the larger picture of what was happening, just rushed it off to print.
Quite frankly, I got exhausted after awhile, and to be perfectly frank, the show just wasn't good enough (or train-wreck-level bad enough) by late 1980 for me to care. But I do hope you check them out. If nothing else, they're good for a laugh!
