Poor writing has made Victor into an evil cartoon character unenjoyable to watch because Victor NEVER LOSES. It is fast forward material.
Victor used to love and adore his family. He was a bit controlling in past years, but his hovering was always meant to help his family no matter what.
Now, Victor is sadistic, evil and enjoys watching the pain he inflicts on his family.
This is exactly how I see it, too. This sad excuse for a show that I used to love has turned my favorite soap character of all time into a feeble-minded, cartoonish villain — sort of a rich, powerful, elderly Dr. Evil. It's honestly pretty hard to watch the train wreck this show has become, and that's in large part due to the way they've bastardized and ruined Victor's character.
