BEST LOVE TRIANGLE|
ASHLEY/VICTOR/NIKKI, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS
Once again, Y&R wins hands-down for its passionate, compelling and carefully crafted love triangle. Does Victor belong with his wife, Nikki, a woman who is desperately in love with him, but is not above extramarital affairs and deceit? Or should Victor choose Ashley, the intelligent, noble, beautiful "other woman"? As with any top-notch triangle, the choice not only isn't obvious or easy, but is subject to change. Nikki's impassioned pleas may have the audience rooting for her one day, but allegiances shift when Ashley's integrity wins sympathy the next. For good measure, Y&R throws in Jack, Ashley's brother and Nikki's sometimes lover; Matt, Victor's brother and admirer of both woman; and Steven, a psychiatrist who's fought hard to gain Ashley's trust. It's a well-acted, cleverly written story with enough unexpected twists to keep things fresh.
