Quote CanadianFan4: Ever since I started watching Y&R in 1991, there have always been a few business s/l's featured. Yes, there was romance, drama and heartbreak...at times even s/l's that addressed certain important topics like Drinking and Driving etc.. But above all, the people of GC have always been business people conducting business!! heck most of the s/l's sets were in either Jabot, NE, Fenmore boutique, or in Michael Baldwin's office to name a few.
I miss the days when storylines revolved around making an acquisition of a subsidiary, or developing a new product line or being involved in an exciting litigation. The competition between Jabot & NE and everything that came from that...
Now all we see the cast do is eating at the GCAC and CL or walking thru the park or at each other's new home's complaining about this and that. Even Lauren hasn't been in her boutique in years! All these seemingly powerful business people have been reduced to drama queens. >(
I know I'm not the only one to think that the writing is horrible...I guess JFP and company are too "simple" to write anything more elaborate than the boring garbage they serve us daily. ~)
ITA!!!..I too have been watching since the early 90's and it was way better then. I hate what they turned Victor into...he's now a PSYCHO who hires people to screw with his family members and frames people for murder. Back in the day he was all about business deals and the tension between Jabot and Newman Enterprises....now he's breaking the law just about every month..LOL
**and somehow getting away with it**
They also made him a terrible husband/father
>>>BTW how many times is he going to get lost in another town and lose his memory...while his family thinks he's dead?
