Super Post, as always, but my question is to you, boes, or anyone else out there, is WHY - to the bolded. WHY does this man have everything he wants, WHY must he always be the winner, WHY do they expect us to believe he is strong, smart, or even human? There must be some reason that he has such a hold over the entire show, no matter who the producer is, no matter who the writers are, or no matter how lame the story has to be. He is an old, worn-out actor, who cannot even be bothered to learn his lines, or speak them clearly. He is decidedly unattractive, arrogant, and incompetent: I am referring to the man, Eric Braeden - not Victor, the character he plays - although they seem to be one and the same. I have watched this show from the beginning, and I simply cannot watch it again until this man is off my screen. Truth is, he will probably outlive me, and I will never have the answer. I have tried to keep my mouth shut, but when I don't vent, I drink more. My Grey Goose budget cannot afford to be raised again, and my liver is probably not happy.
