Reposting in the correct thread:

 

It’s almost weird to see Victor with Abby, but he’s pretty much the only Newman she’s had contact with over the past few months. Weird that they’ve struggled to find things for her to do, yet have kept her isolated from her families, who are both embroiled in story. What a waste of an Abbott/Newman.

They feed Harrison a ton of sugar! That looked like a dozen cupcakes Tara was holding.


LOL I keep noticing that all Harrison is being fed is candy, brownies, cookies, and now cupcakes. No doubt Harrison will have a childhood obesity issue in a few years like those kids from that movie War of the Roses did. I wonder if Harrison’s nickname will be “Fat Abbott”?

Phyllis needs to take several seats. Tired of her carrying on about “my dawter”  How dare she question Jack? When she found out Daniel had a love child she went and found the baby even when Daniel had no interest. At least Cryle is stepping up for his kid.

 Fat abbott! Remember when Victor used to say Jackass Abbott?

I don’t care about Abby’s baby at all. Sick of Mariah wasted as a preggo.

There were also several scenes explaining how much he loves Mac & Cheese. 

 

Edit: It would actually be an interesting storyline if his parents plied him with sweets to spoil him to make up for the lack of a stable father figure and then argued over who is to blame for his health issues later. So of course that will never happen.

Let's remember this is the show that fired a Colleen actress when she gained weight rather than use the history of her show mother exactly struggling with the exact same problem on-screen.

Jack is an idiot for doing that. Sally is so obviously a gold digger!.

It’s time for Jack to have a little romance. When Phyllis wanted to throw Nick in his face, he shut her down. He might bring out the better side of Sally. Although Tara will have an issue for sure.

I've watched a few episodes of Y&R this week after seeing some scenes from 1999...

 

Good lord this show is dead. Nothing happens and there is no character motivation in anything. No intensity, no energy, 90% wide shots and few closeups, and most glaringly of all: no music. 

 

This show is so incredibly lifeless. Comparing episodes from 1998/99/00 to now are just shocking. 

 

The irony is that the episodes that are 20+ years old seem far more modern and like prime time television than what's airing now which resembles ATWT in the 60s. 

 

None of GH, B&B or DAYS are this dull - I've seen them all this week and Y&R stands out in how boring it is by a country mile.

 YES!

The only story with any momentum is the Kyle/Tara saga. This is a classic soap story but Josh is not playing all the necessary beats and characters are being twisted to fit the plot.

Summer is being made to look an idiot when by going along with Tara's threats instead of exposing her.

If Tara had been a little more subtle then Summer wouldn't have the ammo to go to Kyle/Jack/Phyllis etc

 

Everyone else just plays scenes that may or may not have any long term consequences.

 

The costuming is atrocious for some of the women. Nikki is put in overly tight dresses that do not flatter, Lauren looks like a hooker, Tara in pale plain silky fabrics that wash her out, Nina in that hideous green dress etc

 

The lighting is harsh and the set decoration super cheap.Every time I see that clunky sofa in the Chancellor living room I cringe.

 

I could go on...
