Quote chrissy cricket: ~) I have watched Y&R since I was 6 years old. That's about 36 years for me. My grandmother had watched while I would play with my toys. How could I not end up not hearing the music of the opening credit's and voices of the cast's burnrd in my brain. Many of summers later over summers visiting my old friends that moved away, I remember my friends mom would be hooked for the Y & R time. My first time that it was MY choice never to miss a episode was when I was a little older and it was the beginning of the Sharon and Nick beginning young love. You had me at the stables let's just say. Those who are young and see Sharon and Nick now, did not see the falling in love of Sharon and Nick. I like Phyllis don't get me wrong. Even though I remember the day's she was so manipulating, and a little nuts.When she got pregnant with Daniel I did not like her then. But that was a long time ago. I even met The man who play's Jack right before he left All my Children. I loved the Nina story with him on that show. But by far he made a better Jack on Y & R. Lady's he is sooo much better looking in person. Anyway I can't take it anymore. What I'm really upset about that I can't take it anymore is even though I am glad Nick is a grate actor, maybe to convincing!!! When he made love on the bed with Phyllis on Friday he looks WAY TO IN LOVE WITH PHYLLIS! He belongs with Sharon. He can love more than one women but how are you going to fix this! In the soap world and even real life there is that one person we have this deep passion and connection like no other with that one person more than any other. I'm going to even have trouble not seeing Nick look like a jerk telling Sharon how much he loves her the most again some day. You need to fix this! BEFORE they find out the baby Faith is there's.He belongs with Sharon! Also Sharon has been through hell! She is always been sweet as pie her hole time on this show! Phyllis has NO right! She slept and screwed up Nick when couples go through a very bad time morning a child! I even think it's time to make Jack a REAL dad with someone that loves him and he loves back. No not the shrink. The Adam Story Is good for now but he should be a little more handsome sorry but also bring back the eye sight. It's getting old. Drive Nick crazy, he deserves it! Make him have some magic surgery. Have him change into some catch that heather would even claw to get him from Sharon. I love Noah! Great casting! He looks like a young Nick. But His little girlfriend is soooo wrong! I can't even remember her name. You need to start the next unbelievable innocent but with the sex generation like a Victor and Nicky, Nick, and Sharon.I want to see more of Noah. That will go on and on and then off and then of course on again romance. Mostly a lot of them are getting old.I have never missed a holiday with the Newmans or Abbots. But that is supposed to be when are favorite couples come together. They are losing the unity like it is in real life. Family's are smaller these day's. Also more broken up.At least bring it back in our fantasy soap world. I do miss Drusilla and Neil together also. I will really miss Mrs. Chansler when she retires. She is an amazing! NO OUTSTANDING!!! There will never be a better actress.She has been The Young and the Restless glue!#1 . Victor 2nd, Nicki 3rd, Jack 4th, Jill 5th, Ashley & Laurn & paul with old Cricket 6th,Nick 7th, Sharon 7th, Victoria equal 7th, well in the old day's with the young young Victoria she would of been 6th. Of cource John Abbott would of been #2 if he was still there. Drusilla and Neil, old Malcome now on Criminal minds, would of been together up in the 7th area. Well happy writing!
I have been watching since the show started...I was 15 and started watching in the summers until I got married a few years later and have been watching ever since.
I could not agree with you more....I think the newer viewers that did not see the beginning of Nick and Sharon just dont understand....It would be the same as if in 10 years Cane and Lilly lose their child and someone comes between them while they are grieving (I use them because they seem to be the new it couple that new viewers can relate too).
I just wanted to tell you that your post was great..totally agree.
