I never noticed it back when I was watching. You know when you get so accustomed to something you hardly ever notice.

Y&R to me was the best soap that showed the changes in weather and time. When they had scenes on the ranch they would show the ranch. They would show horses, you would hear the sounds of nature, and you knew the characters were on a ranch. Same thing goes if one of the characters were living in the city.

Y&R used a lot of natural light in their scenes. Or if it was raining you would hear and see the rain. The characters would be wet if they had been outside. If it was winter time and snowing. You would see the snow and they would even have snow storms and it all looked very realistic.

Everything now is so basic. I don't know if that is the budget or nobody caring about the details. The music on Y&R is so off nowadays. The songs never really fit the scenes and the timing is off.

Since the show is so depressing and dark. Y&R can't even use their classic music because it doesn't fit with this Y&R at all.

You will never hear music like this again on Y&R.

You are so tight on about the music and background of nature and all of that. I feel like this music is so romantic and so very beautiful.

I remember all of that from the past of all the good music and background sounds, the focusing on characters and then the whole room.

The lighting and positioning of characters and how they were focused on was excellent as well.

Nikki is a hot mess. She can't dance. MTS has some great hair. Her hair to this day looks great. She always changed it to match the times.

^I have to disagree about Fleetwood Mac's Stevie

Stevie could sing and dance and her hair was not that big at least not that I remember.

I should check it out and compare.

^That's funny striperella, lol. :D

I searched YouTube and nothing close to Fleetwood Mac's Stevie's "hair" or dance style at all. Unless you can do better and find once close to Nikki's hair and dance, I could find either, maybe a little of the big side hair but curley hair big not teased like Nikki on Y&R.

Poor Nikki at least she tried to dance, ROFLOL.

^You got Pics.

I searched YouTube and I love Fleetwood Mac very much, just she didn't appear that way when singing or in video's.

I was or shall I say still am a huge fan of Fleetwood Mac/Stevie and she could sing and dance.

Great Band is right, I love them even till this day.


Nikki was more of a Disco Dancer, nothin' wrong with that just comparing the two.

They just don't seem to come like this anymore? I mean Victor is not my type of man of course I'm a lot younger and he just isn't my type, I go for different looks, but he sure seemed so romantic and knew how to treat a woman at the time and the way he treated Nikki.

WOW@when he open the casket & the ire music< Man Talk about some Authentic Story Telling & Directing I can remember my Granny Heavy VCR & those Memorex/TDK VHS tapes I watched in the early 90's..I Freaking Love'd it and still get a kick out of learning soap opera history




Now how hard would it be for them to write like this, I like how Chris came in telling John of her worries signing a exclusive contract & she spoke with her lawyer but John reassuring her of future modeling plans MY GOODNESS the Back & Forth Banter was next to PERFECTION.

Great Great Clips Matt!
