The Young and the Restless
I have been watching The Young and the Restless for 25 years or so. I do so enjoy this drama. In fact I could be called an expert on this topic. But it’s become more of an addiction than entertainment. For those of you that have been living under a rock and have no clue what the Young & the Restless is – it’s a daytime soap that has been on the air for 39 years. The show is set in a fictional town called Genoa City, Wisconsin. It’s focused on two core families; the Newmans and the Abbotts, among a lot of others.
There are parts of it that I love. For example, I love watching Nicholas and Cain, the hottest men on the show. I love how Michael has become a good person, along with Kevin and Chelsea. But I don’t understand why they allow Daniel, who is pretty gross as he is, to play his part with that nasty hair of his. I also don’t get the casting of Victoria. I think she doesn’t look or act the part at all. She does not measure up. Watching her makes me still miss the old Victoria (Heather Tom). And as much as I despise Sharon lately I will admit she is very pretty. I am pleased with some new characters they brought on board lately, especially Avery Clark and the new Eden.
Can’t they get some new writers? I am so sick of the dead people coming back and the ones who get amnesia over and over. They need some new story lines. They just beat some story lines into the ground until everyone is so sick of it. For starters, Daisy. Why can’t she just die? And the Victor – Nikki romance, oh please! The Sheila/ Lauren thing still gets brought up regularly. And for God’s sake, please lock Phyllis’s scanky ass in prison!
If I was running the show then I would try to think of some original ideas. I do need to commend Victor, Nikki, Esther, Jack and Catherine for playing their parts for so long. I can’t imagine having the same job that long. I know, I sound like a freak by referring to these people like they are real. Yes, I probably need therapy over this.
