My reaction to current Y&R ...

I watched August 31st's episode and it was REALLY bad... just a bunch of younger characters that I didn't care about. The writer change can't come quick enough :s

Still catching up. I burned through June this weekend with Tanya's exit and Lauren's alcoholism coming to a head, it was great stuff again.

Watching the July 4th episode now, Bianca/Jean/Shirley are hilarious.

"You know what Shirley Carter, when I first met you I thought you were a lesbian! And not a very nice lesbian!" :lol:

They gave Jean a nice little happy exit, with Julia's Theme no less. I'm actually quite surprised and glad they put some effort into it.

Glad Jean got a nice exit. Not a huge fan of hers, but glad nonetheless ... still pissed my TANYA got no Julia's Theme after years of being on + being a fan favourite.

I love that they're expanding the Carter family. Will definitely have to come back for the new regime.

I wonder what they'll do with Alfie. I don't expect Danny Dyer to be around for too long, I thought he had a somewhat steady character actor career.

David's return episode was fantastic imo. Really looking forward to the new things on the horizon, with Shirley's brother & sister joining. So happy that a new family is coming, and it's taking over the Vic! :D

I don't mind Sonya. They've lost so many faces lately they need something to go back to their roots. And I'd like to finally see Sonya properly deal with Carol's abandonment.

WANDERING Minstrel!

The show has lured me back as they all eventually do. I love when Philshows other sides to his character like realizing that Roxy was making sense about the Vic. Of course Alfie's timing put an end to that. I like that Carol is making David jump through hoops and providing a maternal influence to Alice. Some of the new characters are intriguing as well as the returning faces. I know this won't be popular but I want Vanessa back for Max. She was just beginning to become more interesting beyond the OCD stuff. Plus with Stacey coming back a triangle would be fun. Im basing that on Vanessa's warning to Stacey that " Im not Tanya ". Beyond that raising the ghost of the best ever Footballers Wife, it whet my appetite for a rivalry.

Zoe Lucker was so ridiculously wasted.

I'd love her to come back, I could easily forget Vanessa ever existed if they were so inclined. But I think she's a regular on Waterloo Road now.

I also am suddenly nostalgic for FW and the lethal Tanya Turner. Damn now that was soap opera with a bitch goddess who ranked near the top of any soap villainess list I could compile. But Vanessa had a few moments where I saw real potential. When she warned a drunken Jack away from behind the bar while filling in at the Vic by threatening to make him sing soprano. And when she went after Tanya. I liked her with Eddie too.and her conspiring with Michael. Im looking forward to seeing what Alfie and Kate are going to do. And Shirley bringing her family to the square. And most of all Stacey coming back.

At least Janine's exit storyline sounds like it will be explosive. Though, I feel like every time she leaves, she's always getting her comeuppance for something. I'd love a genuinely happy exit for her, or one that's at least bitter-sweet. I guess that doesn't work for her type of character though (or at least TPTP don't want to go in an unconventional direction for her).

The show is going to lose something special when she's gone again. She's basically carried huge chunks of the show over the past two years amongst so much uneven and boring crap. I hope Charlie is back in a year or two.
