    Er, excuse me. (CBS)
    Restless Rant
    Week of September 17 – 21:


    "Y&R" continued to feel like "The Twilight Zone" this week. Here are some points on the storylines:

    Warehouse five.
    There is so much about this story that’s difficult to understand, such as Genevieve continuing to work as a bar maid even after she thought Victor had moved on, Billy connecting Nikki with Victor before coming clean to Victoria, and Victor/Christian continually acting shell-shocked. Does having amnesia mean you stand gaping silently at people when they speak to you, or answer the phone without saying hello? Gah.

    Triple threat.
    What was that nonsense with Chelsea/Lily/Chloe at Crimson Lights, followed by the further nonsense with Adam/Kevin/Cane at Jimmy’s? Why on earth would they be holding a business meeting there instead of at Jabot, or at least the coffee house? Weird! As for Kevin and Adam’s bickering – no one really cares much about this Tag 'n' Grab stuff – it’s far from riveting storyline material. The flirting between Lily and Cane toward the end was the only part that felt genuine.

    On a break.
    Phyllis’ family has moved out, so it will be interesting to see if things heat up with her and Ronan again. They certainly have chemistry, though he was a little weirdly intense getting all up close and personal with her in Crimson Lights. It was fitting that Christine got to be the one to point out to Phyllis that losing her family was karma kicking in. This may be all the satisfaction Christine gets considering people rarely go to jail on this show!


    Surprise! (CBS)
    As for Christine ranting at Ronan and Michael at the station – it was over the top, and it's ridiculous that she rides into town once in a blue moon and starts barking orders – to borrow Ronan’s phrase, it’s not her ‘house’!

    Daniel/Heather.
    They grow on me more each week as a pairing.

    Let’s draw kitties.
    Loved being surprised by a Patty appearance this week! Kudos! I also enjoyed the relatively civil exchange between Nina and Ronan earlier in the week with regard to Paul’s case – much better than past interactions. As satisfying as it was for Paul to get in and get the information he so desperately needed from Daisy, I couldn’t help but worry that if anyone found out he had been there, she would be considered a compromised witness. In the super-bizarro moment of the month, Paul and the others returned to Fairview only to learn that Daisy had been checked out by…her mother! What?

    A big ‘screw you’.
    The drama surrounding Newman Enterprises was probably the most compelling stuff to watch this week. Jack’s overconfidence, and people constantly stating what a big risk he’s taking, are sure signs that nothing good will come of his Newman stock strategy. As for Sharon, she provided much of the week’s amusement - handing Vikki her things in a wastebasket, coolly informing Nick and Vikki she no longer required their services etc. One of the best scenes was Sharon’s run-in with Adam in the Club, which didn’t go at all the way she thought it would. That was followed up by the scene at Newman with Abby, Adam, Nick, and Victoria. Good stuff. It was also refreshing to see Sharon doubting herself in Tucker’s office – like a glimpse at how she used to be – before Tucker showed her the photo of Victor and manipulated things again. Does anyone have a guess how this will all turn out? Vote in Soaps.com’s Y&R Newman Drama poll.

    So good to see Pattycakes again this week. And Leslie, too.
    Between the reveal that Daisy's mother (???) checked her out of Fairview to the exploding warehouse, it was one of the better Friday cliff-hanger episodes that we've seen in a while.

    Who ever it was that checked Daisy out of the psych ward, legally it could only be Daniel or some legal entity because once you are married, your mother is no longer your next of kin. Someone would have had to have gotten Daniel's permission, and he or a judge are the only ones who could have given it.

    I've had enough of Victor on the docks. The tag 'n grab stuff puts me to sleep. I'm enjoying Phyllis getting her just rewards and I loved seeing Pattycakes again! We all know that Jack is going to lose BON somehow - we just have to wait and see how and to who.

    The story regarding Victor is okay. Really Victor is a hard worker and he is for the people. Sharon needs to go back to housekeeping. Nick needs to get away from Phyllis. Michael needs to go back to private practice so he will not have to cover for family and friends. Paul needs to be cleared of all charges regarding Ricky's death. The police can get deleted files from a computer and we all know that Ricky recorded killing his girlfriend. So what happened to the computer? It was in the room at the club. Daisy needs to be with her daughter. Chloe needs to stop acting like a saint. Phyllis needs to confess and do the time for the crime. Billy needs to confess about Victor and expose Tucker.

    I think Nick needs to stand up and be a man for a change. He knew what Phyllis was when he married her and he knew she still had issues to work through. I hate it when he walks out on somebody just because things are going rough, especially when he knows there is something underlying Phyllis' failure to be truthful with him. Nick needs to grow up and be a man.

    Enjoyed the rant Candice. In the real world if a person loves someone they don't just walk out on them the way Nick did Phyliss. The struggle for power at Newman is one of the most interesting story lines and Fridays cliff hangers were goodies. So Gen is falling for Victor after the stuff he pulled on her. Sharon falling into the sack with Tuck makes me barf almost as much as her with Victor. Wow, when Ronan is close to Phyliss the TV starts to melt. If I was 50 years younger & single I'd go for him myself.:)

    This new twist with Daisy disapearing just when we thought Paul FINALLY was getting a break made me cringe. Christine always makes me cringe. Can't wait to see what Adam will do about supporting his syblings. It looks like he still has feelings for Sharon, but since she's been with Victor it would be too wierd if he got back with her. He & Chels are good together. So we'll have to wait to see how Victor avoids being blown to bits.

    I think that Tucker is the one the Dock Worker has been chatting to on the phone. It was all a plan to lure him to the warehouse and fake his death. That is why Tucker is buying up stock; because he knows that Victor is not dead! Poor, poor Jack!

    Ahhhh...You are the winner for being right....Correct. Yes, the story line will develop and will be many more surprises.

    "Mother" may be too technical to describe who checked Daisy out - can you say "mother-in-law", aka Phyllis?

    Only 14 more Maria Arena Bell shows left - THANK GAWD!!
