Y&R: A Closer Look -- Sharon
So I guess Sharon is going to be miraculously cured from her mental illness. And the point of the writers going down that route was for what purpose? Obviously not about Sharon, it was all meant to get her child kidnapped by Adam. I'm sure we've heard the last about Sharon's mental illness and we'll never learn the root of her problem. Such blatant irresponsible and disrespectful storytelling. An insult to the fans and really an insult to anyone who may have had a similar mental breakdown experience. I'm still trying to understand the necessity of trashing Sharon, none of it told a compelling story about mental illness and it was just swept under the rug.

Y&R: A Closer Look -- Sharon
I love Sharon Case and as usual she gave a great interview. I'm disappointed to read that Sharon is still living in a hotel room, it's past time she get a REAL home. I know that Sharon is supposed to be stronger, but I just see more trashing of her character in the future. I don't hear strength, I hear stoicism, big difference. I wish SC could've talked more about what lies ahead for Sharon, I would love if they had her concentrate on her relationship with Noah. Anway, I've already tuned out, I don't trust these writers and they don't know how to write for a strong woman.

MM has to go. He sucks.
Watch out what you say about Michal Muhney he might be lurking. Michael Muhney got me banned from my other messageboard because I hurt his feeling when I said I was tired of his "smug ass".

Y&R: Adam's most twisted plot ever!
This should be called MAB's worst plot point ever!

Y&R: Adam's most twisted plot ever!
It's just pure disgusting. Again I ask how is this entertaining, it's not even written well. This sounds like complete camp and cartoonish crap. Adam is not even a good villain and I don't understand why everyone else has to pay for his revenge against Victor except Victor.

^^^ This is just bad writing. It's way too cartoony and campy to even be considered real drama. When will this nonsense end?

There was never a 3 way WTD, Sharon has been pregnant since February. The writers blew the WTD out of the water when they had Nick tell Victor Sharon was due around the same time as Ashley. Ashley announced her pregnancy in March and Sharon and Nick first had sex in February, so Sharon has been pregnant this whole time.
Sharon also had sex with Billy in Feb. I still wonder why Sharon had sex with Billy quite a few times IF nothing was going to come of it. But then I remembered Sharon and Brad's NY tryst. It took quite a while for that to come out too.

I wonder how Noah would feel about his mother's affair with Billy? MAB gave us quite a few hints about the current storyline when she did that preview a few months ago. One of the things she said was that when the TRUTH about the paternity of Sharon's baby is revealed eventually, everyone will see her differently. Very, very interesting.
It said Sharon's secret will be revealed and people will view her differently. It could be the secret that Faith isn't Jack's, but Nick's. Everyone pretty much knows about Billy and Sharon, Jack, Chloe, Mac, Katherine, Phyllis, Nick, and whoever else. However, I can't rule out the possibility of some bs on the writers part. The viewers knew about Faith's paternity along with Sharon before anyone else found out, Sharon's reaction in the chapel and the excitement to share the news with Nick was pretty evident the baby was Nick's. If the baby wasn't Nick's I would think Sharon wouldn't be as excited for Nick to find out and wouldn't feel guilty for lying to Jack about the baby being Nick's.

I feel Sharon and Billy's s/l was changed last minute in order to go for a Billy/Mac reunion. Sharon and Billy were basically dropped, they haven't had a scene to even talk about everyone finding out about them. I personally think it was just for shock value and to go for a 3 way WTD, that basically went nowhere and was blown out of the water with Sharon's due date.

sorry to have to be the one to break the news to you, but this is not 2005, and SC has to prove to PR, HS and MAB that she has the acting chops to carry this storyline, the last one they handed to her on a silver platter sunk like the Titantic! PR has a high standard, and SC's contract is coming up for renewal and don't forget that all actors are being asked to take a pay cut......maybe that career on Hallmark is smelling pretty good to SC right now!!!


I guess none of you were around in the good old days of the 60's and 70's for soap operas??? There was NO comedy, there was no Happy time, it was mostly ALL Angst and trials and tribulations, of course the women on soaps were all stay at home Mom's who worried abotu the kids and if dinner would be ready and on the table when the man of the house walked in from a hard day's work!!! Baby switching is nothing new!! and it will not be the last time it is done on a soap!! At least they did not kill the kid off!! Still waiting for the kid to be proven to have Abbott DNA!!! you know it is coming!!! that twist MAB talked about all those months ago!!!
I just find it hilarious that SC has to prove her acting skills to some hack writers that are destroying the show. What did they hand her on a silver platter? Her breakdown s/l? SC did great with that, she was getting accolades, even Nelson Branco was saying she gave an Emmy worthy performance. Then all of a sudden it stopped being about her breakdown and turning it into all kinds of plot driven nonsense. The 3-way WTD, the stealing, the affair with Billy, and so on and NOTHING came from it. That wasn't SC's fault, that was the writers choosing NOT to tell a consistent story and going for shock value. I read from so many people that really wanted to delve into Sharon's psyche and explore her past, it was the writers that created a history for Sharon's breakdown and didn't follow through on it. You're right I hope Hallmark works out for SC and leads to other things, because Y&R is a sinking ship and it's because of these people she supposedly needs to "prove" herself to.
Nelson has said a lot of stuff one being that all the other soaps should be copying Y&R for their storylines and how MAB is the Obama of the soap world. I'm not going to say that SC can't act but I will say that the material she probably will be given won't be nearly as good as what she got under Kay Aldren & Jack Smith back in 2005 when Cassie died and yet she still didn't get an Emmy nod.

BOT I'm not surprised the writers are going in this direction in the least it was spelled out for all of us when they continued to let Ashley think she was pregnant and gave her and Sharon the same due date when we all knew Sharon shouldn't have been that far along since they had to have her have a DNA test done with 3 different men.

Not a fan of Sharon so I don't really care what happens to her I do feel bad for Ashley though, She lost another child and yet she doesn't even know it yet.



Well when MAB first arrived Y&R was doing well up until the May time frame. The Jabot takeover was great, Katherine's funeral, Shick having sex in the cabin were all major ratings getters. The s/ls became more character-driven, I enjoyed the writing. Then things started to change, and even Nelson Branco stated that Y&R was taking a turn for the worst. Anyway, back to the point, SC has an Emmy, she was nominated again in 2000 & 2004. She is a wonderful actress. I can't really put too much weight on an Emmy nom or win because look how long it took Jeanne Cooper to get her first Emmy win, MTS has never won either, JM has never won, and so on. I don't think anybody can argue the acting ability of those people.

Who the hell said anything about celebrating??? why does everything have to be a PHICK/SHICK war??

and why bring up the fans ?!?!?? what do the fans have to do with the SOD cover?!?!?

You're the one that brought up Shick/Phick, I just said nobody should celebrate (i.e. get too excited) about either pairing. It doesn't have anything to do with the cover, so why did you bring it up in the first place?

SOD Cover and Preview, 10/6 issue
^^^Well that's your opinion and you're entitled to it, I just disagree. However, I would suggest that neither Phick or Shick fans start celebrating too soon, you never know when it will blow up in your face.

just try to remember that we are not watching Daytime Comedy, it is called Daytime DRAMA for a reason.

let's see if SC can do some actual acting with the coming scenes, we know she does the snotty nose crying well, but she needs to prove to alot of people that she can actual act!

SC doesn't have to prove a damn thing to anybody. Everyone knows she can act, others can deny her ability, but her works speaks for itself and it says volumes about her acting ability. She's been front burner for 15 years, she doesn't need to prove or justify a thing. If they wanted to change Sharon's character this was a totally unnecessary way to do it. So of course we're going to see her cry more, SC is the best crier in the business, she can cry at the drop of a hat. It would've been more fun and challenging to see Sharon get more aggressive, bitchier, and no nonsense, instead of taking her 3rd daughter away from her and making her think she's lost yet another child.
TV Guide magazine called Melody Thomas Scott the best crier in the business and I agree. But aside from that caveat I agree with all you said. Sharon Case has proved on numerous occasions that she is a fine actress. The ones who need to prove themselves are the writers. They need to prove they can come up with a decent story line instead of the consistent garbage we have been getting in the last year. MAB is worse than LML and that is saying alot.
ICAM, the writers are the ones that need to prove to the audience that they are worthy of the number one spot. What I've seen so far they don't desrve a thing. I'm sick of the plot driven nonsense, these writers have yet to tell a story. For months it's just been a series of disjointed events that have occurred and none of it makes sense. The character assassinations, changing history, nonsensical twists that go nowhere, and what are we left with? Not a damn thing. This is not quality television, this is not even drama. I just feel they're only trying to go for shock and awe and it's going absolutely nowhere.

I'm about to cry, it's just way too much tragedy back to back and I don't know what these writers are thinking because I don't know ANYBODY that wants to see this shit play out. So far since May NOTHING that has been written has been any good. It's just been really bad plot point after plot point, no consistent, heartfelt, well thought out story has been told. Maybe if had been written well from the beginning I would be more willing to watch it but this has been such blatant Emmy pandering, it has nothing to do with giving the fans a good story. And another thing, this "Adam's cruelest plot ever", Adam isn't even a good villain. I could understand if it was Sheila, Jack, Victor or somebody worthy, but his angle makes absolutely no sense. I don't understand what he hopes to gain from all of this, what is his end that justifies his means.

Y&R: A Closer Look -- Nick
Well Shick getting it on in the cabin garnered a 4.1, but that's neither here nor there. This is a great opportunity for SC, especially if they bring a new man on the scene for her. That was the problem, JM was the only man available in Sharon's age group. Other than Victoria Sharon is the only other woman in her 30s on the show. So Nick was really a leading man by default, because for some reason TIIC don't think they need more men on the show. The only other man that gave Nick a run for his money was Brad, but they wrote Brad into a corner and instead of just going for a Shad pairing they decided to get rid of him, BIG MISTAKE. It's time to give Sharon someone hot to work with, hell I can go for Billy, that was HOT. It doesn't matter if Nick and Sharon reunite, Sharon's already had the best of Nick.

I wish that Sharon would get a new love interest, and Nick realizes that he loves and wants to be with Sharon. Then Nick can fight for Sharon while she is with someone else. Nick can watch her be in love with someone other than him.
I've always thought that Nick was "okay" with Sharon & Jack, because he knew Sharon still loved him. Like you, I don't think Nick would do well if Sharon was truly in love with another person. His ego is way too big.
Nick didn't like Sharon and Jack, but he could tolerate it. The one he couldn't tolerate was Brad. If Brad and Sharon had actually gotten together Nick would've had a fit.
