IMO, Neil is Vic's "yes man." Victor tells him to jump and Neil says, "how high?" I preferred Nathan (the original w/the Jheri curl) over Neil. Dru was the best thing to happen to Neil; without her, he's dull.

Good does not bore me sunny- nor put me to sleep -but constant dose's of evil put me in just the worst mood you can imagine. It really screws up my feng shui-THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE IN THE REAL WORLD.... we need some good people in the soap world for balance-Most of these people work over time at one upping the guy sitting next to him.......


Of course there are good people in the world, but those people's sole purpose, unlike the characters on Y&R, isn't to entertain me for 1 hour each day. :-) :-)


I agree with you Sunny. The world is just not Black and White, IMO. There are shades of grey. I would never be able to watch a show that portrayed everybody as squeeky clean. I love Catherine Chancellor. She has not lived her life playing nicey nice all the time and that's why I find her such an interesting character. She is fair, honest when she is dealing with others who are the same and she just exudes wisdom, IMO.
I read the article on Christian LeBlanc who expressed in detail why he loves the character of Michael Baldwin and I can understand why.
Everybody makes mistakes and sometimes it takes some longer than others to find their way, but when they do, it just makes it more exciting to me knowing where they came from and how much they've learned. JMO ;)

I feel ya sunny, sometimes good people do bad things. Amber has displayed a heart of gold but constantly does things that are just...Wrong! Same is true for Kevin, Daniel, Jack, Phyllis, even Nikki. Even beloved Kay has done her share of dirt.

Good Point. John Abbott was a decent character. Look what happened to him. He was taken in by a gold digger and ended up dying in the slammer.
Gina and Lynn were decent characters.They're gone now.
Tracy Abbott was decent. She also had an inferiority complex because Ashley was slim, smart, and beautiful. Lauren treated her like sh#t. I would like to Tracy come back for a visit and smack the sh#t out of Lauren. She could say that her therapist said she had to deal with her past before moving forward.

Paul is a good guy, but the way he's started acting since Heather came to town is kinda sickening. I guess he's trying to get on her good side.
