Soap Opera Digest Best & Worst for 2000

Oddly, as he was born in 1987, Shawn seems to be around the right age. Maybe because the show aged him by small degrees and, so, it did not feel as jarring. (Don't forget, after little Scott Groff came tween Colin O'Donnell before Jason Cook, so his aging seemed almost natural for a soap even if still accelerated.)

 

Long way of saying SORAS screws up EVERYTHING.

 

Yeah, didn't Shawn go from 13 to 16? That's not bad at all.

Belle, Shawn, Phillip were aged in 1999  so 12 to 16?  But Colin O'Donnell seemed maybe 13 or 14.  So not bad at all.

I believe Shawn and Phillip were older than Belle initially but then they became the same age at some point.  And initially they had Belle going after 20 something Brandon Walker lol.

 I believed it was the oldest reason in the world - she was bored in her marriage, was hot for Phillip and wanted to fućk. The truest motivation soaps too often try to avoid today for dumb puritanical reasons.

 

Haha well said. Though I will say I think Will (Guy Wilson) and Paul's first interlude seemed to be purely on lust and attraction. They can't tell me reporter boy Will was so enamored with Paul's amazing closet-case baseball story that his passion for pen & paper morphed into pecs & penis.

That first seduction scene with Paul and Will was nearly pornographic in its intensity. To this day I have a hard time buying that Guy Wilson is str8.

Were Sheridan and Luis really that tortured by 2000? I mean, were they even a couple before 2000? And then didn't the only thing that happened to them Sheridan being buried alive? Because after 2000, with Sheridan "dying" and meeting Antonio and crazy Beth, sure, they were tortured a lot. But in their first year of the show? I don't think so..

 

Yes, they really were a tortured couple in 2000! I was watching then but don't remember particulars. SOD gave them the same title two more times!!

That show was truly sick with the torturing of Sheridan. Didn't Mike Horton from DAYS (Roark Critchlow) fry her brain with electro shock therapy to "erase" her memories of Luis? Good grief...

Yeah, it was him. Things were never easy for Luis and Sheridan, which made me even more angry that they didn't end up together

The worst was when pregnant Sheridan was kidnapped in the basement, after McKenzie Westmore had suffered a miscarriage in real life. Did JER really start the trend of victimizing soap women, or was he just the first to get "credit" for it?

I loved when Michelle Stafford returned to Y&R that year. LOVED IT! And I didn't even watch her first stint. I loved her friendship chemistry with Shermar Moore's Malcolm and Christian LeBlanc's Michael.. It was so fun to see such male/female friendship exist on a soap. I adore Jack and Phyllis and just thought Stafford was a great actress. I did get tired of Phyllis later on when she became Saint Phyllis and a heroine of the show. 


ITA! 2000 MS was the bomb. That’s the Phyllis I loved to hate. Now I’m just meh towards her. Phick did the character no favors in the long run, and only turned her into a doormat and insecure schoolgirl. I still believe the better story was for Jack to be the father of Summer and not Nick’s in the long run.

Shawn-Douglas was born in 1987, Belle in 1993 and Philip in 1995.

I was talking about when they were SORAS'ed.  I think Phillip and Shawn D were juniors and Belle and Mimi were sophmores, but then they all sort of became the same age.  I distinctly remember Shawn D having a motorcycle when he first appeared and driving it and Belle was only SORAS'ed to 15.

Shot in the dark ... I think it was around 2000, when they were all going to prom and Philip, rather than Chloe ended up getting drenched with chicken blood. And then a few months after that, Brady (who in actuality would be between Shawn Douglas and Belle in age) came on and was clearly the young adult in the group.

Yes, it was 2000. 1999 was when Kirsten Storms, Farah Fath and Jason Cook joined the show. I believe that was fall 1999.

Oh yes! Totally agree!! I actually loved the beginning of the Phick affair, because I thought they were hot and they had chemistry. However, in my opinion it should have never been anything more than an affair. Because it damaged everyone involved.

Yup, sorry, I should have expressed my thought a little better. For a few months (?), there was some pretense of there being a slight age difference among the teens. As I remember, it kept eroding, what with Brady being the designated older guy and in the summer of 2001, when they all went on that island as a school trip.
