How long before someone posts a new thread that says:  

How much time do we give Mal Young before we ask for his firing?

 

 

Something tells me MY will get away with a lot of junk before someone dares to ask for his firing.

Relax. Even Joshua Morrow has said that Nick is "not the brightest bulb in the box".  He knows who his character is.

 

Relax? No, YOU relax. 

 

You’re the one who apparently can’t stand a different opinion.

Sally and Kay had the lowest ratings YR has in 10 years. They failed and sometimes u cant go back and recreate the past..Mals first episode was edgy, well paced and contemporary. So much better then anything Sally but onscreen. Sally also had the shortest run of any head writer.

 

 

Edgy??? What the hell was edgy about it??? The pacing wasn’t worth mentioning, and I didn’t see anything particularly contemporary about any of it except the awful music used in the opening minutes.

Scott's actions including blurting out the identity of the sex worker kind of undermined his reputation of being a top notch investigative reporter.  Just the other day, Scott talked about the importance of being discreet now he's talking all about the investigation, including tracking the LLCs to a guy he barely knows?:huh:

Also, by the time I was in middle school, my mother had taught me never to leave my food and/or drink unattended, especially around people I'm unrelated to (and I mean close relatives, not those occasional interlopers that you hear from once in 10 years). Stupid stupid stupid.

 

I'm not opposed to MY moving the sex trade story along as it does need to end soon. The Zach character is creepy smarmy and lacks any type of charm and charisma and he and Abby are boring anyway.

 

Are Phyllis and Billy being played for laughs?  Just asking.

 

Also, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing any less of Victoria for the foreseeable future. Looks like all the writing regimes of the past decade have that much in common.

Also, Victoria's an heiress who apparently couldn't hire a top makeup artist? 

 

Hilary and Lily were the most amusing out of today's episode.

The scene between Jack and Ashley with the record player and music was actually kind of touching.

 

Today's episode had a frenetic pace to it.

 

OK, I agree with a lot you say here.

 

The stuff with Scott was especially bad. Zach asks leading questions and Scott the potential Pulitzer winner doesn’t realize it as he feeds Zach crucial and secret information? Huh? 

 

Sally would NOT have done this. I’ll take Sally any day before shortcuts and punchy plot garbage like this.

 

The truth is, they’re WAY late in amping up the believability and realism of the sex ring story. Someone should have been killed long before this. Why not Crystal? 

 

Instead we we got a lameass wimp who created a dating app and who’s dating an heiress — and who’s a sex ring leader??? My God.

An heiress whose legendary father ran a background check on Zack and found nothing.

Its funny people whine and complain we have dont have new blood in daytime and when they put Mal in charge who came from UK we are complaining. Yesterdays YR was great thought the pace was great and love the direction of the show. In last two weeks show has been much better. Sally was a total hack. She had zero stories going on, she pimped Victoria/Billy as a supercouple, wasted Gina Tognoni and again lowest ratings ever. People were not yearning for the old Bell way of writing. U cant go back 30 years. Todays audience is different.

30 years ago they had over 10 million viewers.  Today they barely have 4.

And if today's audience is one that thinks Jean Passanante gives intelligent psychological writing and believes that Shelly Altman is taking them on a thrill ride.... I'd rather Y&R be Y&R than cater to the LCD that shares those opinions.

Scott is a cowardly piece of garbage, wow. I'm glad Victor snitched on him and I kind of hope Zack gets away with framing him.

 

Victoria/Brash & Sassy racking up more L's  :lol:

 

I didn't care about anything else going on.

Scott is such a wimp. What happened to the tough reporter who went after stories in very dangerous locations? And yes Scott...your mom and Paul are very close friends ....hey they were even married!

 

Paul going by the book? He really believes that Scott killed that woman?....LOL  And why didn't he call Lauren?

 

Dina just had a stroke and she's laughing it up at some hotel/resort?...ok......LOLOLOLOLOL

 

Zack just killed a woman and tried killing Alice(not sure if she alive though) and we are to believe this guy loves someone and has a heart?...ok......LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

I'm sorry Paul just seems so awful...Never has a clue, then again he always has been used to having chipmunk Kevin with him.  

 

He isn't the detective or cop he used to be years ago when Tyrone, Amy, Andy were around. It's all gone. Paul is a shell of his former self.  I also don't like him, he always lets the good people get nailed and the bad ones he hangs with.

 

I couldn't believe what I was seeing with Dina drinking martini's with female friends when she acted like she was all alone?


Scott looked like the politician from the Godfather who was set up with a prostitute who ended up dead in his bed. I seriously can't.

 

 I don't even want to begin on Abby.  She is written to be so much like an airhead. Sad cause the Actress is very pretty. I happened to like Marcy as Abby a lot better though.

 

Seems so strange how Jack is ok with Phyllis and he doesn't blame her for her part in the affair and is always ready to take Phyllis back no questions asked and I used to like that about his relationship with her but I feel she uses that to her advantage and has used him over and over.

 

It's why she repeats what she does cause he doesn't set her straight about hurting him. He has to mean it before he takes her back and I find it sad he is made to look like he forgives an outsider who has broken many families apart on the show.
