Neil Picks Up on Kay’s Incoherence on The Young and the Restless





Neil (Kristoff St. John) begins to notice that something is amiss with Kay (Jeanne Cooper) today on The Young and the Restless. The Duchess of Genoa City is constantly repeating herself, while getting all up in Neil's romantic business. Watch a sneak peek of today's Y&R after the jump!

    The dialog on the show is really generic and makes the scenes very difficult to watch.

    I hate to bash the show, because it’s doing more right than wrong, but the dialog is just not working for me right now. The Avery and Dylan stuff is like watching a commercial for coffee.

    I agree with you on this one. I know that most of the posters here, seem to adore STEVE BURTON, but I keep waiting to be impressed and am just not getting there. I find him very dull. His acting is almost as bad as the awful Adriana, Chavez and Noah storyline.

    I have to agree. Steve Burton is rather boring to watch, but I feel like it’s still the horrible dialog. He already has a pretty bland delivery and acting style, but the lines make it worse. It’s hard to even stay with the scenes!

    Adriana…ugh, She reminds me of Gabi(Camila Banus) from Days. Horrible character IMO. Y&R needs new writers. Not plot writers, but people who can write livelier lines and scene pacing!

    I find the dialogue to be very intelligent and real to life. Avery’s scenes with Dylan have been spot on. They are at a loss of what to say to each other. The show is on fire.

    I think that JFP should make Dylan a military ‘villain’ or a mobster, or something like that. He is definitely a one-trick pony when it comes to his acting ability.

    Good to see Katherine and Neil together again. Time for Neil to head back to Chancellor with Leslie in tow. Leave the Goof Troop behind (Cane, Lil, Tyler) to ‘set the world on fire’ with the House of Jabot fashion line (a little to B&Bish for me).

    With all the Burton hype, I was expecting more than the return of Jason in GC. I felt the scenes he’s had revealing to Avery that he’s Dylan has really been Jessica Collins’ shine time. He just looked to be standing there staring and very little emotion shown…LOL. So I know SB’s addition is more about him being eye candy, b/c he’s NOT a strong actor. Then he had the nerve to have on that typical black T-shirt he wore eveyday in Port Charles.SMH!!!!

    Avery, trying to shed a tear was rather hilarious. Fenn bbeing hauled off was great. It was time. So we can move on from this. Jack and his dope dealer, let it go. Yes, addiction is long term but Jack is too strong for this. I just hope he doesn’t go through the trash can and find the drugs. I love the show and seeing people getting back to business. Kay having dementia is a good storyline but I just hope it doesn’t go as far as her having full blown alzheimers. I love having Katherine on the show and if they do this to her it will not go over well in real life behind the scenes I’m sure.

    All this negativity will not keep me from watching “Y & R” – I am really enjoying the stories for the most part (the Kevin/Chloe nonsense is annoying), the Fen/Jamie/bullying story being a real standout at this time.

    As long as the farcical nonsense and delibarate plagiarism of the Maria Arena Bell era is gone, I am thrilled!! Back to good old character-driven story!!

    well an alzheimer’s storyline is always a good thing ( from a societal standpoint) , so long as they really develop it over the long term not just open it up and let it drop as they for Dr. Doug on ATWT- I liked that storyline a lot but as i remember they didn’t resolve it or follow it along as I recall – probably budget/time restrictions since they wrapping up the show or were about to do so … I miss ATWT ! the acting and writing were so much …. were so good. GH is the only show that compares now it seems . The Cali. style of soaps is so different from NYC… ( FV + RC have brought some it to GH no doubt)

    My thoughts exactly. We know JFP does not like women over a certain age on her shows.[/quote]

    Did’t we have a ist of people who would be gone once JFP came on: Genie, Stephen,et al nd now Jeanne and didn’t we call FOJ Steve Burton coming on? IF she kills Kay ala Maureen or Frankie, so help me… Kay sould go in her sleep or go the way of Sally Spectra

    I really hope they don’t get rid of Kay Chancellor. I would rather see the new dude from Avery’s past go, at least Kay can act. We have so many non talented people on the show now and some terrible story lines. Kevin and Chloe and the money story, along with anyone involved in that farce should be sidelined. My 6 year old great grandson could write better stories for this group.

    In the preview I saw today (as expected) Victor will be messing with Sharon’s meds. This is the most disturbingly despicable things he or anyone in Genoa City could even think of doing. If all comes to pass then surely this should be the crime to finally shrivel The Great Teflon Bratwurst.

    Tracey Bregman was certainly front and center today!! And the scenes with Lauren and Phyllis were great, the scene with Kay and Lauren was great, and the scene with Jack and Phyllis ( with the perfume sample ) was smoking hot!!

    I can see him naming the fragrance after her… Simply Red; FireCrotch; Red Hot Lover; something along that line.

    The show does have a bad moment here and there, but these people are acting their asses off….. they may have forgotten how to act during the MAB tenure, but they are doing great now!!

    Loved seeing Fen in handcuffs… at least on my tv screen… guess I am getting a case of the vapors again…. pass me my smelling salts, will you, Harlee?

    Aight…so Y&R doesn’t need no writers. Y&R HAS new writers. After all the complaints of LML, we got MAB. After all the complaints of MAB, we get JG and JFP. As old girl said in The Women of Brewster Place, this is IT. This is the END OF THE LINE.

    The show’s storylines for the most part are a million times better. The Dialogue is sharper than its been in years. The actors are invested in their characters again…and most longtime viewers are invested as well.

    Good lord….for some people, Y&R will never be good. Nothing but negativity? #ANNOYING

    I’d be much better if they could include Jill. All my favorite Katherine Chancellor moments & stories were with Jill. After being starved of their relationship for over 3 years under MAB I was expecting more from the new regime when they announced JW was returning.

    I hear JW is taping now but I hope it produces an actual story. It was very disappointing to see Jill being isolated with Tucker that had nothing to do with her life. She was unaware of Billy, Jack, Jabot, Lauren, and everything that made her Jill. Jill’s only conversations with Kay were about her health and Tucker/Devon. SNOOZE zzzzzzzzzz

    Jill has always had he romances and her never ending ambition in the business world to keep her interesting without Kay. But Kay’s stories without Jill, w/Kevin, yelling at God as the town matriarch have never been that interesting to me. And despite what they have written the last couple years – KAY CHANCELLOR has not been a lifelong business woman!!!

    I don’t think Victor messing with Sharon’s meds is out of character at this point. The fatherly feelings he had for her are dead and buried. Besides, the late, great Bill Bell did have the man feed a dude rats.

    Just watched the episode at CBS. Yes it was very good and I think now Jack is going to be blackmailed, which could cause problems. Katherine having problems remembering….OH Katherine getting an story. Alzheimer’s disease or just having memory problems which happens to elderly. This could be good.

    I loved the scene between Fen & Kevin and SO nice to see Kevin doing something different then fret over that lame money story. Fen is relating to Uncle Kevin in a way right now that he’s not with his parents.

    Has Y&R fans see the new ratings…Y&R is up again and is #1 in all demos and total once again. Believe it or not this team has increased ratings in every area. Y&R was losing across the board w\MAB. JFP & JG has cut the negative numbers and in half and some areas actually it’s on the plus side!! B&B was up again. I think GH should be careful because DOOL’s is on their ass and climbing. ;)

    HEAR HEAR!! I couldn’t have said it better myself, Stoney07!!

    All this negativity is VERY ANNOYING!! We FINALLY have a head writer and producer who are listening to the show’s fans!! The show has become a ZILLION times better since MAB was 86′ed back in July! Gone is all the silliness, plagiarism and stories with so many holes I could drive a Semi thru them!!

    For those of you who can’t tell the difference between horribly over-blown plot-driven story and well-laid, character-driven story, perhaps this isn’t the show for you….As a 30+ year watcher/fan, this is the best “Y & R” has been since the early/mid 2000s!!

    Josh G is slowly converting me. I, for one, am glad that he has someone like JFP to light a fire once in a while. I’m glad that we are not returning to Brad and JT arguing over a comatose Victoria (Yes Amelie was portraying a coma, it wasn’t her usual ‘acting’), like Josh had the Newman’s doing in 2007.

    Things are turning the corner in a good way. The Congressman — that’s all I have to say. Pushing Victor around, being a true menacing presence, calling Leslie the name of ‘Valerie’. Mark Pinter from the ol Another World — this is going to be one, good s/l.

    Fen. Nothing else to say. Believable, hard-hitting, solid. Emmy-winning stuff from this kid, Max Ehrich.

    Phack. Naming an entire perfume line for Phyllis is what I would do. Tracey — I like all of your examples.

    Jeanne Cooper probably wants to be on less, so we all need to let up on JFP & JG.

    Things are coming along nicely, and I am like Jack Abbott. I am past the ‘withdrawal’ stage, missing MABs outlandish plots — and just settling for some good old fashioned writing from Josh G.

    Excuse me from shouting this from the rooftops – but the scene with Jack and Phyllis is still playing on in my mind…. good old fashioned romance. And then ole Jackie boy sends her a dozen red roses…

    that is great story telling… letting the actors tell it all with a few words and their expressions and mannerisms..

    now every time I see Jack or Phyllis, my mind goes back to THAT scene…. and nothing has struck me like that for a long while, now. It was not pornography, not a whan,bam, thank you maam scene, it was raw emotion between two people that have a long history together and know it.

    If it were under the MAB regime, aliens would break into the office, all dequised as Abby clones, and steal Big Red and take her back to their planet where she would have another run in with Sheila Carter.

    I even can think of a theme song for the background music: “Lady In Red” by Simply Red….

    Harlee – thank you for the compliment…. I just calls em as I sees em. B&B people hate me as I rake that show over the coals….

    I think Y&R has gotten better as it has gone back to old style story tellin ( the Jack and Phyllis scenes ) and suspense ( the Lauren/Michael/Fenn plot); using old characters in new ways ( Lauren; Paul; Chloe; Chelsea; Leslie… )…. and Nikki…. loved her playing the piano.

    I just hope her doctor doesn’t forget about the HIPPA laws and talk to Victor about her condition as that would be breaking the law, no matter who Victor is or thinks he is!

    The dialog is great, esp Adam’s comment about his fathers 368 black shirts.

    They have added SOME great new characters ( the Senator ) and some not so great, and some that have to be on for awhile before I can make a decision ( Tyler ).

    I just never was an Adam/Sharon fan, and I hope they do not go back to that as there are many new men on the canvas for her to cavort with.

    Methinks Valentine’s Day will be RED hot in Genoa City this year!!

    Oh on “Firecrotch” is Jabot’s line for Walmart and “Simply Red” is Jabot’s newest fragance ;)

    I whole heartedly agree with you about Phack…it was so romantic and real..Kudos to Jill & Josh…I’m loving the romance is so abundant again on canvas which had been missing for years. Romance is so sweet! :love:
