I actually don't hate the show as much as others right now and still find it infinitely more watchable than GH. I usually catch up on the weekends and marathon it unless someone posts about something I need to see.

 

The only story I really don't care for is the human trafficking as there's literally only one character I like involved and that's Sharon and I guess to a lesser extent Nick.

That's one hell of a low bar. Still, I don't hate the show right now either.

LOL @Juliajms that's the truth.

 

I'm not 'hating' the show right now either but there's not really anything that's compelling me to watch.

 

I agree with antoyne that I like Sharon and Nick involved in the sex ring but I don't really care about the story or those involved. It is nice to see Alice and Tamara Clatterbuck again I suppose.

What did Cane do now?  He's one person I would keep, but he'd be the rogue character Cane is meant to me.  No apologies!

 

Agreed. Cane the last year has been how he should of been. But DG's whisper acting is beyond annoying and I don't like how he plays some scenes when he's supposed to show remorse. He's still not a great actor by any stretch of the imagination. But Cane could serve a purpose. Like others I always envisioned him as the new Brad. Eye candy with a so-so actor in the role. Lane was the worst thing to happen to both Cane and Lily, despite Goddard clinging to the fanbase.

The two things that I have to credit the outgoing writing regime is that they've given the Sharon character more balance than she's had in almost a decade and they brought Dina back to the canvas, which has given other characters like Ashley and Jack and even Abby another layer.

 

The business stories are flopping but they finally acknowledge that Y&R does benefit more from having them.  My gripe with the silly sheet mask idea being the panacea for BNS's woes is similar to the gripes I had about the Fenmore's story- a lack of specificity.

Remember, back in the day when Jabot raced to Japan to find that special plant that they could extract the botanical properties for one of their products?  That was specific. Now, in contrast, the business stories feel vague with only an abstract notion of what the actual products are about. I mean, what is so hype about the sheet masks that separate it from, say...the Say Yes to Tomatoes mask available at CVS?

The problem is that DG is ALWAYS allowing his personal feelings to affect his onscreen work. Not ONCE from the time since this whole Juliet debacle happened did I EVER believe Cane was even SLIGHTLY remorseful about his actions. The character (and the actor) are CONSTANTLY blaming everyone & everything else for their current predicament except themselves AND Y&R TOTALLY ALLOWS IT TO HAPPEN. Like Greg Rikaart & Kevin Goddard should've NEVER stayed beyond six months. I agree Y&R needs a new playboy but it would be MUCH better to have a new(er) character fill that role with a character that has SO much baggage played by an actor who is always focused on an agenda.
