(Hope you don't mind but I have to cut out the quotes, it was gettin' too long.)
Alrighty, whelp it looks you've got your speil and I've got mine. This is the first time I've spent a total of two days talking about characters I barely watch. Ah well, there's a first for everything. Alright, enough about Sharon. You dig her, I don't. End of that! Got to move on...but before I do...lemme' drop a little something-something for my girl, Chels!
When Chelsea first came on the scene, I totally dug her. She was hot! She made Victoria, Chloe, Lily, Abby, Victor, Nikki and Billy look like they walked around with a broom stuck up their collective butts. I loved her. She was a hoot; and when she and Adam started hanging out, it was like the perfect recipe for an entertaining duo. They rocked their scenes. For the first time, in a long time, Y&R finally had a couple who didn't make me wanna pick up a drink.
Then their friendship burned into romance and suddenly, watching them do their thing was like eating cotton-candy at Great Adventures. From one scene to another, I did nothing but smile whenever she and Chadam were on. It was great and I've got nothing but praise for the Y&R couple that rocked it out in 2012.
Nowadays, things are different and my babies aren't exactly those same crazy kids they were back in '12. Oh well!
But this thread isn't about Sharon, Chelsea, or Adam. It's about Steven Burton's acting and until today, I did not have a reason to praise him or credit him for any amount of talent. As a viewer, I was obliged to watch other characters be used to establish Dylan and it was frustrating. It was frustrating because for me, the story he was given deserved an actor who could do justice.
Luckily, Steven Burton proved me wrong today and showed viewers the emotional toll, returning war vets experience after surviving a tour. The subtle performance he gave today is exactly what I wanted to see and he delivered.
