I have been away from this site due to constant Ron C. propping and Y&R bashing, but I must admit. I miss DC! I miss the arguments and the cattiness. Coming here today, I learned a fellow poster, Stoney07, recently lost his battle with cancer and I dedicate this post to his memory.

So, how does everyone feel about Y&R these days? I know I'm torn with how I feel about Genevieve. She is so manipulative and coy, but yet she is putty in The Moustache's hands. Why does everyone woman in GC get moist by the thought of giving it up to a 70-ish old fart? I don't get it! Makes me wish Brad could be defrosted so Y&R had a viable older hunk. Watching Tucker, Jack, and Victor as romantic leads is laughable. Sit ya'll asses down! Its called "Young and the
Restless" for a reason. All three of these men should have a love interest and not be playing romantic roulette. Save that for Billy, Cane, Nick, Daniel, and Kevin (has anyone noticed how DELICIOUS he looks lately?!).

Also, I hate Kay's pimping of the toxic Niktor pairing. She encourages her so-called bestie to keep crawling back to an abuser and I have lost total respect for Old Lady Chancellor. Of course, Nikki is really the one I should be angry with. She allows Victor to break her heart over and over again. Enough, I say! Leave the bastard and go on with your life, Nicole Reed Newman. If I didn't love MTS, I'd consider Nikki the most pitiful woman in GC. But that award goes to that heifa Phyllis (I miss Dru too, Jamey)...

Ugh!!!!! Where do I even begin with Big Red? She is a hot mess and half these days. With MS currently phoning it in, she is FF worthy in my book. Phyllis has outlived her usefulness and I hope she ends getting shot by Lauren. Was anyone else sickened by Big Red's suggestion La Fenmore murder Daisy? I mean, I loathe Daisy but that was a little morbid even for Phyllis. Besides, we DO NOT need another murder mystery on this soap!

But I'll tell you what Y&R needs below:

1) Clean House!

(Sorry but my Driod doesn't seem to like me today lol)

Cont'd

1) Clean House!

Send Avery, Anita, Ricky, Eden, Daisy, Angelo, Angelina, and Genura to the woodshed!

2) Bring back to romance
Make us swoon again, Y&R. No instacouples or sofa sex anymore. Give us a viable couple and not a plastic excuse for one (ex. Phick, Shadam, Niktor, Villy, Nefia)

3) Build the suspense
I would love if Y&R took the time to invest in their storylines. Diane's murder could've easily been a blockbustrt had tj

Y&R deserves the bad rep it

Y&R deserves the bad rep it has earned. It's unbearable, IMO. I try to watch it, but I have to turn the channel to Jersey Shore in order not to fall asleep. It has not been on fire in years. And I do think Ron C. deserves a lot of praise. Currently, he is the best writer. He managed to make GH bearable.

MAB has ruined Phyllis and Sharon. She has overkilled both characters and they are nothing, but based on stereotypes of women. Phyllis is the shrewd and Sharon is the pathetic loser. At least, Phyllis isn't trying to act like some sex kitten anymore or screaming. And reopening Phick v. Shick is lazy writing.

The minute Avery stepped into GC, I knew she needed to go. Everything about her was so half ass and poorly written.

I'm okay with Ricky. Some characters work as part time. He's good as a side story and I wouldn't want him to receive more airtime, but do not cut him all together. I still don't care for Genuara. Time for her to go back to GH.

MAB has ruined Kevin. He's now evolved into some whiny, pathetic, loser. This guy use to have an edge and start fires. Now, he's the biggest baby of them all.

Finally, Billy Miller needs to go or end Villy. Holy sh*t! His acting is AWFUL. He looks docile and bored. I've seen individuals on barbiturates appear more alive. I knew the curse of Boretoria wasn't over. MAB thought they were going to be the new super couple, LOL?! Chelsea needs to leave, too. I like MCE, but I don't think she's enjoying her time on Y&R and the character is half ass written (hell, half the storyline are poorly written).

I think MAB is dry on storylines. She used them all up during her first year as HW. Y&R needs change.

Greg Rikaart is really able

Greg Rikaart is really able to pull the best out of the crap he asks for (rumor has it), or whatever MAB and The Gang sticks him with. Hopefully with tomorrows episode, the whole Veneziano experiment will be gone with it. The only kudos goes to Greg Rikaart himself, and I must admit, he is becoming larger than life and the go-to man on the Show. Move aside Cane and Josh Morrow as Nugget (yawn, bore), some of the guys and the girls want to see Kevin in a serious romance.

Onward to talking about Victor. Everything around him has become inconsequential. A disaster. He goes to jail. He marries Sharon. He sets up Adam. He's after Gen. He really wants Nikki. Who would have thunk that Y&R would be revolving around a 70-year old man? I can tell you as someone who has been watching since '82, if Eric Braden has that much control over the course of this show, get rid of him. I want to see Victor get what he deserves. A bullet from Nikki, Vikki, Billy, Jack, Ashley, Abby, Adam, and whomever else wants to get in line. You want to see a permanent spike in ratings. Make Victor Nemwan pay for his deeds.

Tucker talks to Devon (yawn, bore). Devon talks to his Mom Harmony (yawn, bore). Ashley talks to Tucker on the phone (yawn, bore). The only excitement in this area is Tucker's plan with Sophia. Already there is some hope there in that s/l, to trasncend this drivel that MAB is shoving down out throat with the merging of the McCalls and the Winters.

Please break up Ashley and Tucker! Please, please. Ashley prancing around Jabot giving advice to Jack, or being a bi+ch to Jill, is not helping the Abbott crew. Please make her insane again, or bi+ch-slapping around her daughter to excite things up a bit.

Other possibilities are endless. Ricky pairs up with Abby, and Ashley's against the marriage union... Cane and Ashley have sex on a desk, and Jill sees them... But I know what ain't working. Seeing Gen in Japan with a 75-year old man.

Lauren, you were waving your gun around... making us hope beyond hope, that you were going to use it to put a slug in Daisy's a$$. But now what, Ricky and Daisy are getting together? Pete Porte should put a stop to that immediately. Pete, that is a one-way ticket off of Y&R. MAB, some of the guys and the girls want to see Pete having sex, hopefully with a Newman or an Abbott. Get him deeply ingratiated into the show. No one wants to see him 'on a desk' with Yvonne the (Hag). I will switch to a different channel (temporarily) if I ever see Daisy Carter on a screen ready for 'her experince'. MAB, don't ruin Mr Porte's career in daytime by pairing him with Yvonne Miss-Can't-Act.

Akbad, not too much of that romance, although I would like to see Adam be happy with Chelsea, or even Sharon. But definitely we have to keep Ms Red on ths show. Maybe not in every scene like MAB is using her now. But what would Y&R be without Red cozying up to some guy, and whispering in his ear... But I digress.

Why is it that any of us could write better stuff than MAB and The Gang is coming up with? Can I be like MAB, and sleep with a Bell -- any female Bell -- to get some control over Y&R?

stoney07 was a good guy. I'm

stoney07 was a good guy. I'm glad that he could stay optimistic about Y&R. After this last month, I am almost ready to say to pull the plug on The Show. I am starting to agree with bartman.
