Jillian you give away TOO MUCH! Why the Jamie reveal?! WHY?! Give a tease - not the whole farm. UGH! I can't help but look and then am always ticked.

Like U, I like to check out others view points, but hate it when I read a spoiler. Also feel Y and R threads should have to do with Y and R. I am maybe a minority of 1, but I don't watch any soaps except Y and R and could care less about Doofus and Ms. Doofus on GH or BB or whatever other show.

Wonderful post David! I am a 23 yr viewer of YR and a 42 yr viewer of GH. Im glad someone is savvy enough to see Cartini's tactics on GH. They so annoy me. The vets are just tossed in with lame story or theyre just window dress while they continue to spin some of the lamest stories in not only GH but soap history in General.
And the final result is industry buzz but unstable ratings. The longtime viewers come back to check it out but then they lose interest and the ratings fall again.

I think JFP and JG are doing much more solid work with YR and restoring the show's consistency which is why Ive stuck with it for 23. And despite the fact that I started GH first at the age of 5 since I discovered YR I always considered it a better written more grounded show

I will give it to the show on this one. I was not sure how far they would take it, especially since OLTL attempting an anti-bullying campaign very similar. But in that story OF COURSE the culprit got off because of the influence of the father which in the end ruined the message for me... The GH regime at their prior best! (sarcasm)

I applaud everyone involved in this story from the veteran actors who added the instance feelings of parents and guardians worried about all their kids to the newbies/young actors who delivered top notch performances. I do hope in the end that both Summer and Fen are forced community service but come to the understanding of what their actions towards others could lead to in the end. I do hope that jamie sticks around and that Paul may become his foster dad.

Its ironic though on this show we have Jamie being bullied by Fen and then in the very next episode we see the adult version of the bully in victor in how he has treated Nikki over the years, how he is tampering with Sharon's medications and even how he uses people to his own gain. It would be nice that Victor runs into Paul and they talk. In that conversation Victor hears about Jamie and the bullying by Fen and Victor's grand daughter, Summer. He reflects and calls Mason and says DON'T switch the pills. Even if its a small change of heart (because we all love dastardly villians) it will make this bullying story that much more compelling that it touched the ultimate bully's heart, VICTOR "I AM GOD" NEWMAN.

Kudos, Jill and Josh for writing a really compelling and nicely twist-ed (in a good way) story.

Has anyone thought that possibly Jeanne Cooper who plays Katherine just wants to retire. This great actress is 85 years old. Holds her own with so many young and veteran actors on the show and for the 20 years I have been enjoying this program she has never been missing from an entire week's episode.It just might be what she has requested so that she may retire and enjoy her life.

Cooper has said in multiple interviews (one as recent as 8 weeks ago) that she has NO PLANS to retire voluntarily. She has another online interview this coming Thurs. and she'll probably say it again.

Time for Nikki to either become The Town Drunk like she was under MAB, or be herded out of town. She's boring as #ell right now.

Katherine needs to be sent to Bermuda with Murphy. I cannot imagine Jeanne Cooper wanting to stay in the wheelchair like Alice Horton did, to the bitter end.

If Jeanne ever did decide to leave, I'd like them to again recast with Michael Learned, although I can't imagine the show without her. I think she can actively be an important part of the show for some time, even if at a reduced level.

Hey mon, no Nikki? Really? I'll take some more drunk scenes, but maybe they can tie them respectively to her new storyline. Let's give her something more to do than be the Town Drunk. Just my opinion.

I didn't know that was the case. I love seeing Jeanne cooper and Katherine around even if her comments and judgements are always different for the same topic depending on the character, ie jack can't take Newman but its fine for victor to steal jabot twice. Among other things.

Still love her!!

Hopefully Nikki will not go the bottle route again. That would be too much for us and MTS herself to put up with.

I think Jeanne Cooper is still very viable and doubt we will be seeing the last of her for a while. Besides, she seems to have a story coming up of her own; which probably will be just that and not an exit plan.

I have mixed feelings, I would like her recast as you stated for the same reason but again I'm not sure. I wasn't watching when ML subbed, right before I returned when Nikki returned. I came back after 9 months of not watching the trash MAB was trying to peddle.

If they did recast I say Elizabeth Hubbard which would fit her perfect and she's younger 79. Wink

@pferrando--the last time Katherine didn't get on my nerves was when Michael Learned was playing her. I loved her as Kay and thought she was a breath of fresh air after the constant hand-thrown-in-the-air histrionics of Jeanne Cooper(JC can be entertaining but she can also be grating).

Yeah, Michael Learned actually worked as Tucker's Mom. I think it was because Jeanne Cooper had been on for years as Brock's Mom, Phillip's adopted Mom, Mackenzie's GrandMom, and then Jill's Mom. To see Jeanne as *poof* suddenly Tucker's Mom didn't work. But it did work for someone new like Learned.

But seriously folks, Nikki stumbling around town with her flask, marrying Deacon, getting hysterically bi+chy with Sharon, divorcing Deacon a few weeks later, was pure ratings gold.

I like the actor playing Fenmore. Very dark looks and eyes and shows really good acting chops.Can see him getting a younger actor Emmy nod this year. Jaimie is also good. Reminds me of the character Shane that was on OLTL who also was being bullied. At least this whole story is giving Micheal and Lauren a much needed storyline.

Yeah, I would tend to agree with you there. While I'm not sure it's wise for the character to hit the bottle every time there's drama going on--I mean, she'd have already been dead from alcohol poisoning at this point--MTS is at her best(and most entertaining)when Nikki's boozing.

Chris. We are agreeing again. I like drunk Nikki. Fun, bi+chy, sleazy, I can see what Deacon was after (with a checkbook, as well). But I suppose if we have to sit through a disease or health condition s/l, it may as well be Nikki. As long as it's not the snoozer that Lily' was in 555-5555.

I'm pretty sure Tucker and faux Katherine never had a scene together. If they did it wasn't very memorable.

You know as well as I do, that Learned-Katherine and Tucker had some scene together in October and November 2011.

If she did I don't remember them. I remember she had scenes with Murphy and Jill and I think Nikki. Patch must not have made a big impression on me even in his scenes with John Boy's mama.

Well today (in Canada), Nikki revealed her affliction. My mom has the same disease and let me say that intentional tremor (her hand shaking) is most definitely NOT an initial symptom. Tremors usually appear years and years after initial symptoms. And they could have built this up in a way that was realistic and consistent with the disease, but still would have allowed for drama. Ah well, it's definitely a unique route and with no cure (and with Nikki being too old for disease modifying drugs...)- there's a lot of ways for this to play out.

I can't wait for Nikki's story. Hopefully we'll finally see a different Victor. Maybe not.

And Harlee, I do agree. Liz would be good as Kay if it came down to it.

I still don't get why so many see Victor as such a Deity. He is truly pure evil and his latest gambit to supply Sharon with placebos is despicable. No matter what Sharon has done (whatever she's done that's so different from anyone else), she does not (nor does anyone) deserve to have her health tampered with.

It's high time that Victor had a epiphany that actually took hold. Maybe it will finally come to pass when he realizes that the woman he supposedly loves above all and everyone else is taken chronically ill. Could that be the catalyst that finally turns his tide?

Tedew -- We have been waiting for years for ol Vic to get his comeuppance, but he is never going to get it -- ever. If there is one constant on this Show for the past 30 years -- it is that.

Vic gets the best lines, has the most money, the nicest place to live. The writers still have his children all wrapped up in what HE thinks about them.

Victoria is basically a stooge-clown when it come to Daddy, what an embarrassment Josh G has been to her character. I can understand trying to have Vicky rip NewmanE from her half-brother, but her wholesale now-slavish devotion to Vic is almost cringe-worthy. (Miscarriage at the later with Billy, winning $half-billion from him, tampering with Delia's treatment, Chelsea). She can't even function as a human being when he doesn't approve of her. Have Heather Tom come back and perform a dual role (she doesn't do much on B&B anymore).

Nick started yet another venture to escape NewmanE. Crimson Lights, no that was 95. Restless Style, nope, twas 2007. The Underground, 2012. And around and around and around.

Adam. Can you imagine a character written so weirdly that almost everything he does is to either impress or get even with ol Vic Newman? Killing off his half-sibling in utero in 2009, spying on Tucker in early 2010, trying to buy up shares in a plot with Diane in 2011. Siding with Jack during The Takeover in 2012. Not leaving with Chelsea to Paris in 2013, just to run NewmanE, and play off of ol Vic.

Abby. The most free of the 4, probably cause she was raised by Brad.

I have stopped waiting for Victor to pay for anything, he is never going to. Now Josh has him tampering with Sharon's medication -- his former wife, and the mother of 2 of his grandchildren. How low will ol Vic go?

hey mon ... actually many of the best lines and quips are not coming from Victor (who is still very obviously reading them) but from others include Adam and Jack.

As I posted before, the thought of Victor tampering with the health of another really bugs me. I actually don't think it is going to go that far but if it does and it causes Sharon to cause harm (or even death) again then Victor must finally be held criminally responsible and forced to pay.

Actually I think Victor has been toned down a bit under Josh. Not so almighty. And last week's Tuesday episode showed why so many people still like Nikki and Victor together.

He's more balanced. I like it. For now.

I agree Victor is more toned down under Josh...but still Victor. Tuesday's episode is what people like about the Victor\Nikki love story. It was presented so well and showing a tender side of Victor, which will always be Nikki. Let us please keep him more balance.

I think those scenes with Nikki and Victor sucked. She's always over-looking every last xxxxx@xxxxx.com thing he does. She should be out looking for a little excitement in her life with someone like Carmine, someone who will truly appreciate her, but now Josh has given her MS.

As far as toned down, I think the whole Show is toned down, with stronger 'writing'. Victor is toned down, Jack is toned down, Sharon is toned down, Red is toned down. Ho hum. The only one who is not toned down is Lauren and Fen, and thank you to Tracey B for not being toned down with Carmine.

At least DAYS is starting to ramp up a bit.

Hey mon, I know you like things a bit more hopping, but for me "toned down" is SUCH a relief after most of the stuff we've put up with since LML canned both Kay and Jack back in 2006.

It more the Y and R that I like to watch.

Yeah, I like an occasional pyscho, or murder mystery but enough was enough.
