Why is Y&R depressing us even more? I know that this is drama, but I am so sick of the hospital scenes and most of the characters being sad. I want some happy moments.

Perhaps this story development could lead to the discovery that Jack, not Nick, is Summer's father...

Oh please this storyline should be over since like yesterday. The quad just isn't working for me anymore. At least not for some time.
The only good thing that could come out of this is like @SoapSnob said that Jack is Summer's father. But since the haters would call that plot driven storytelling ... IDK if I should even wish for it. LOL

Phyllis needs to move on ... Deacon Sharpe is in town, get over with Summer's heath problems and let her move on from Nick. Tongue

Siomonstuart,

There have been some fun scenes lately. Summers illness will open all kinds of drama eventually between Victor and the rest of Summer's loved ones. Imagine the fury that will be unleashed once every knows that Victor brought Mary Jane to town. Nick, Phyllis, Noah, and the rest will want to shun him for being a party to Summer's injuries.

TGVN will suffer and suffer when the whole sordid details are revealed.

As for happy scenes, Y&R is always good about layering and weaving different storylines. However, too many happy scenes would be a snooze fest.

Jeff and Gloria will bring some needed comic relief shortly.

I've been really enjoy the Summer storyline. I'm loving how all the stories are involving more characters. We see people interacting more with characters they aren't always with. The little actress that plays Summer is doing a great job too.

Too bad I did not care.

They change 3 times the person playing Summer and then we saw the last one, one time, and poof I am supposed to care?

Seriously?

I do not care for Summer, I do not care for this story, nick is changing his mind so oftern I don't trust one word out of his mouth. Phyllis playing the Stepford mama does not work at all, Love Ms but I think that MS is awful in stories with children, so unnatural.

And Yes, I am a Phyllis Fan, but it's been awhile since I saw the real Phyllis! This version is worst than LML version!

I love the Phyllis when she trapped Danny into marriage and ran over Paul and Chris with the car and she was a badass. Now she is a wimping mess just like Sharon and she to take JerKNick back is not in Phyllis character. She would of kick him in the you know what and say forget it. I am so over the quad that it isn't even funny anymore. The writers overplayed them and the fans are getting mad about it.

Why would anyone want Phyllis to be a sociopath. Do you really want her to return to her car hitting days so she can be written into a corner. She can't be psychotic forever.

I rather her be a sociopath than be another wimping mess like Sharon. Phyllis would of look for MJ and bust her up. She is crazier than MJ is.

reggyreg as soon as she returned to a being a sociopath then it would be why is Phyliss doing this. Doesn't make sense for her to go back to those earlier days. The character of Phyliss has grown. She was never a one note villan. Now if she started doing all that stuff again then everyone would be complaining that Y&R is writing Phyliss into a corner.

I like this storyline and am enjoying it.

Edmund: Who wants to play stable? Unstable is her talent! Celeste is and always will be the Queen of Misery. And we are going to milk it for every amount of publicity we can! (To Rose.) Wouldn't you agree?

Rose: I'd say Amen.

That is a quote from Soapdish. It applies and says it all.

Smitty, as usual, I agree with you. I can see the naysayers saying that changing Phyllis back into a wack job proves that Y&R has grown all dark and macabre. I think MS is doing a great job. You always want to see growth in the characters. I think Y&R is on fire right now and I am enjoying every minute of it!

Sorry Jillian in the acting department Judith Chapman makes MTS look like Vail Bloom. Judith is an ACTRESS to the 10th degree. In fact anyone just about upstage MTS in the acting department. She needs to go to American Academy of Dramatic arts and takes some lessons.

David that's your opinion. Mine along with many others differ. If Judith's such a thespian then why did your favorite pastime of ratings bashing DIP when she was on 24/7? Again I've NEVER said MTS was worthy of being called the new Katherine Hepburn if your going to try and bite what I say, then you need to do it correctly when I say she's not a acting school grad.

Jillian,

You're great and so are Jeff and Gloria. Those two are demented, twisted fun. I agree with Nelson Branco that Ted Shackleford is great.

I don't want them front and center but as supporting characters, Jeff and Gloria are fun.

Don't confuse Hitchcock with Reilly. Shame on you guys!

Jillian, you agree with me that Phyllis would never took the Jerk Nick back after what he did to her.

Again we like Y&R David and EVERYONE knows you dislike the show. That's all on you if you don't like it. That's why my name is Jillian and NOT David. You think Y&R's like Passions, Passions couldn't be Y&R even on Y&R's WORST days. That's MY take on what's being given on the show. It seems as though you want DC to agree with your take on Y&R, WE DON'T. That's what makes people individuals and no two people the same.

Siomon Phyllis shoulnd't take Nick back. Now I agree with that statement. She should cut her losses.

Hold up a minute. Pull yourself together. Cause you don't know me. What I want you couldn't even give on the best day and that is consistency. So I know what to expect. I'm just going to correct those missteps. So there you have it. Take it our leave it. "I've got a sharp tongue and been known to cut a few people with it. Get use to it.

I haven't attacked you yet. You'll know when the stealth bombers arrive. Just don't tell me what I am about and what I want cause you don't know. Now we can take a few breaths and get back to the discussion.
