    I have been a long tome viewer(since 1977) and I hate to say it, but this show sucks. Why didn't they just start a new soap and revolve it around their little darlings. At least then maybe we could have gotten into it a little. But they have sacrificed so many of my favorite characters for this garbage they are feeding us now that I really find it hard to muster up a good givadam about YR

    Does anyone else notice that the actor playing Dylan always does a "dip" movement....he stoops momentarily as if to make himself shorter, then stands up straight again when giving his sincere, good guy speeches..? I noticed sub conciously but then became very aware if it one day when watching the show. I had to laugh remembering how Carey Grant would do the same movement when speaking to female characters in the old movies....

    I really miss Marcy Rylan as Abby...She had so much sparkle to her personality! I also can't help but feel that the blouse with sequins the NuAbbey wore in today's show was a bit much considering it was supposedly the morning as she brought breakfast to Victoria.

    Somehow, as glamorous as Michelle Stafford is, I can't really buy that the actor who is Kyle is attracted to her....Still seems as if he barely knows Summer, let alone Phyllis, and still feel as a viewer as if he is a stranger on the show....

    A couple of posters have mentioned that Phyllis changed Kyle's diaspers, to which I say both "ewwww" and when did that happen? ....don't recall that at all (thank goodness) though it wouldn't seem to have been a memorable part of any storyline....

    The only story I like at the moment is Michael and Lauren. Realistic and raw. And Christian LeBlanc is terrific as always.

    Bring back Paul Williams. I wonder what happened to Christine?

    When do Nikki and Victor come back?

    Chelsea is pathetic and she will get it from all sides (including from Victor) once the truth comes out. Dylan will be hurt and angry, Adam will be furious and Victor will want to punish her. She has missed the boat.

    Phyllis is acting like a moron, going after Kyle to keep him from Summer. She will ruin her own relationship with Jack, not to mention the one with her daughter. Is she that weak that she has to go along with everything Nick says? I agree with you, I was really looking to the reveal and the fallout. Disappointing.

    Loved the "divorce" scene with Delia, Chloe and Kevin. Sad but very well done.

    It was nice to see Jill with Billy. Sad when they mentioned Katherine.

    I hope Billy can get Victoria back if she's pregnant. Otherwise, another child with divorced parents. Jeez -- Noah, Faith, Summer, Delia, Reed, Moses and now Johnny. Plus, Chelsea and Adam's child. There isn't a kid on the show whose parents are still together. Well, hopefully Fen if it all works out.

    Candace, as always, excellent rant! I started watching Y&R from the first episode. Last October I stopped watching. The whole rewrite of history with Christine/Phyllis/Danny,etc. was too much for this viewer. I watched my beloved characters become unrecognizable. Couldn't take it any longer. Now, I only read your rant, and the spoilers. Each time I read about what's happening, it only confirms that I did the right thing by tuning out this show. I was so sad when Jeanne Cooper passed away, she was like a member of my family. Now, Michelle Stafford is gone from the show. I doubt Y&R will be around much longer. So sad! Now, I watch my favorite episodes (from the past) on YouTube. Memories of a fantastic soap are all that's left.

    Your rant is right on Candice. The way Phyliss is handling the Kyle/Summer romance is so insane. No way would she lose the relationship she build up with Summer just to keep a secret that is going to come out anyway. Complete hogwash! A boss sleeping with an employee? Shouldn't be afraid of being blackmailed or charged with sexual harassment? With all his money hAdam would surely be more careful. I think his reason was to try to find out if she was a spy for Victor. He is usually one step ahead of Victor which makes an interesting scenario.

    I can understand why your friend is not watching anymore. I think the new Abby and Kyle are horrible. Carmine needs to go. Fast forward when Neil, Devon, Leslie, Lily and Cane are on. Hated Lauren's affair...she and Michael are soooo good together. Sick of the Nick/Summer/Phyllis/Jack/Avery thing. This said....maybe I should stop watching as well!!!!!

    Cute scene with Michael & Lauren getting a little flirty and Micaels little kiss. Does Tyler do anything but look sultry? Lily didn't really come clean with Cane about her own feelings about Tyler. Sharon's talk at Cassies grave gave a glimpse of why she behaves badly and that even she understands the reason. It's uderstandable that Victoria would be afraid since she was held at gun point because of Billy's debts once.It figures that she would be preggers now.

    Excellent rant Candace, thank you!

    I too am a long time viewer who is extremely disappointed in the show. These writers have even made Adam boring. I too am fast-forwarding and skipping the show.

    It's bad when the fans know more about the characters than the writers of the show. I really like the Noah recast. Love Alex. Summer I do not like at all. Tyler and Carmine would not be missed if they left. Nu-Kyle leaves me cold. I miss the long time characters.

    Storylines that could have potential are drawn out so long that they become boring and who cares what happens.

    I hope Sony and CBS are paying attention to fan boards. They are all the same - viewers are bored and restless!

    While there are a couple stinker storylines going right now ( Chelsea tricking Adam and Dylan about the baby, the whole Rose snoozer), I think Y&R's main problem at this point is the amount of bad casting since the new regime has taken over. NuKyle is just embarrassingly bad ( I have yet to find one positive comment about him anywhere) and was an unnecessary recast. Abby...while tptb had no choice in recasting this role, they could've picked an actress that could actually you know...act.

    I haven't watched since the beginning of April, and frankly, while I do wonder about it sometimes, I have no plans to watch it any time soon. I keep up with it once a month or so on this site and that is about it. Hate the character Chelsea, not impressed with the re-cast Abby and haven't seen the Nu-Kyle, yet, but based on the board's opinion of him--which I trust-- I don't care to. So disappointed with a show I used to watch daily and love.
