What's going on at Y&R?
Okay, so I go back and forth with Y&R because it's my favorite soap and I want it to do well, but they just seem to pull the wool over my eyes most of the time. Diane's murder, besides Maura West's bitchtastic performance, was a bust from the minute it became obvious they had no idea who the killer would be. Then, we had the whole Delia bone marrow drama along with Billy's secret in Myanmar that just left a bad taste in my mouth.
However, since the Christmas episode featuring Nikki, I haven't been as pissed at Y&R. I see glimmers of the old Y&R at time, but I don't wanna get my hopes up. Some people simply want to hate on the show (this means you, Dyllan!) and can't give credit where it's due. This soap has taken a turn for the better recently and I wonder if anyone agrees. Yeah, the kinks in the Jack shooting are noticeable, but we have gotten some great acting out of the story. Peter Bergman set the screen ablaze this past week when his alter ego "died" during surgery, saw his dearly departed father in heaven, and then returned only to learn he's paralyzed. Same with Michael Muhney's Adam, who was blinded by Patti. It's poetic justice for such a dastardly character, but the actor is giving a tour de force. And I know many detest Genie Francis's presence on Y&R, but Geneieve buying BON is awesome.
We need good business storylines again!
And didn't Nikki look amazing this week?! That purple dress and her hair slicked back was a good look for her. Also, I would be crazy if I didn't salute Stacy Haiduk for her portrayal of Patti. I don't give a damn if you don't Patti, she is a classic villainess and she reminds me why I watch soaps in the first place. She's damaged and cunning yet so childlike. I think she's fascinating...
Although DAYS is still my number # 1 stunna, I'm kinda digging Y&R again!
