: Each day I watch I am a little more disappointed with the directon the show is going.
Victor, I hate him. HATE him!! Not love to hate or just dont like, full on HATE. How can you hate a fictional character? I dont know, but I 100% do.. I want a bus to plow over him, back up and run over him again just to make sure the job is done. What he said to Billy about the gun yesterday was unforgiveable and then the audacity later to tell him his marriage was over. GRRRR!
Why these writers continue to do this, I have no idea. Victor and Billy had a fledgling truce. Why couldnt they build upon that? They are never going to love each other, or even like for that matter.. but why cant they get along? IMO the kidnapping story would be much better if they were working together to save Victoria. It doesnt have to last forever, but make it a fair fight. Bring back feisty, up in your face Billy Abbott.
Where is the character growth? The character driven stories? This whole thing is one big plot point, starting with the fact that Billy doesnt have $2million. Pffft! Jack might even still hold the purse strings, but if he can get $2 million to buy a baby, he can get $2 million to pay ransom.
I am sick of the cartoon monster and am really getting fed up. Did you guys see that YR slipped to 3rd place for the coveted 18-34 demographic? I can tell you that for me, as I am part of that demo, this is a big reason for it. No one, I repeat NO ONE wants to see the 70 year old macheavellian Victor get over on anyone and everyone in his path.
Make Billy and Victoria, Adam, Sharon, Nick, Avery, Kyle, Abby,... the focus of the show and let Victor fall to the back. Its enough, just enough.
I Love Villy!
Edit: Maybe I should create a bash Victor thread.. since I spent 5 paragraphs basically only ranting about him, lol. Want to join me?
