Looks like Traci cares more about Victor than her daughter. Hell, looks like everyone else does. Victor's redemption arc is pathetic.

For all the years I have been on soap boards(late 90's), I can't recall a time when I saw so much negativity towards Y&R. Has the show really fallen off in such a short period of time?

Im not liking it as much as I was, i still would say its better than half of whats being produced by other shows. I think the issue is that Y&R sets a high standard for itself usually, and when they're not meeting it we get the reaction we're getting.

I still think the LML run was worse.

I am with Kenny, I miss the first few months of this years shows. :hail: I have no idea what whammy came along (around when Summer got sick) and sucked the smart and creativeness out of these writers :moon: , but it is a complete wreck. :shame: It's not even a trainwreck that I can't seem to look away from, I have no desire to spend my free time trying to like this show anymore. :shame:

The actors don't even seem to know how to act with what they are given :shrug: It is truly falling apart and I have never seen so many posters on so many different message boards so outraged and turning off Y&R. :sheep:

I wish Braeden's contract dispute would've happened a little sooner and they could've written Victor's death as the end of Patty's reign of terror. That would've been much better and more of an impact than Colleen's death.

Y&R needs a complete behind the scenes and in front of the camera overhaul.

This show is a bloody mess,

I never would have thought in a million years that y&r would go so far south. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. The writing and production is horrible. It's a crying shame really. :embarrassed:

Where have I seen Colleen's doctor from?
I'm not sure but she looks really familiar to me too....


The beginning of today's show was like watching someone on an acid trip.

Guys, let's admit it, this show is every bit as bad as it was during the Latham era.

Things don't have a chance of getting better unless Maria Arena Bell, Hogan Sheffer, Scott Hamner, and a few staff writers are fired.

I agree 100%!!! I hated a lot of LML's run but I didn't give up on the show! When MAB first took over, I was SO GRATEFUL to have Y&R at least RESEMBLE it's former self, that I gave her a LOT of leeway! I was horrified at the news of Sheffer's hiring and, of course, MORE horrified at the thought of cigar smoking megalomaniac RAUCH being allowed to put his pudgy old paws on my favorite soap! But this mess is just UNWATCHABLE for too many reasons to get into! I still want Rauch gone but the others, INCLUDING MA Bell ought to be canned with him!

The only reason why more people are giving up on the show, is because they stuck through with Latham. They found hope with MAB; evidently they weren't going to be played twice.

VERY well said and that's exactly why I'm considering checking out of GC for good! And THAT truly breaks my heart!

I've semi-checked out. This Colleen/Victor story has upset me on so many levels. However, I'm watching right now, and I did love Phyllis not showing much compassion for Victor. Wonder how long that will last...

Aww Beth Maitland was divine today in that chapel scene. I hope TPTB don't just entirely write her out. I'd love to seem them refocus on business, and have Tracey stay in GC (I'm sure BM would be up for recurring too).

I'm about to give up on this show too. The characters are so unappealing and the storylines are horrible.

Today's show was so ridic. Adam is psycho but Nick and Vicki are such brats.

I agree. That girl not only can't act but she is so grating with her airhead self.
