Holy cow, Waldo.  I really hope you’re totally up to par, soon.

Explain to me how they filmed those scenes in Sharon’s house?  They weren’t distancing at all. It does look like Sharon Case had face work done.  Her puffy cheeks makes her eyes so small and inset.  Not good.

Buttbiscuit did an interview on our local TV and said the only two people who are not forced to distance is Devon and Elena because they are involved with each other off screen.

Thanks BOES, I had triple bipass surgery and than a bout with cellulitis for a total of 3 weeks in the Hospital. Thank god for Medicare. All is well now. 

Glad to hear all is well. You were missed!

So Phyllis has had to go on EBay and buy a bone?  I guess Nick's not up to the job?  I know, I know, too easy of a joke but I couldn't resist.  If she really wants people to think Abby's hotel is being built on prehistoric remains, shouldn't she just bury herself in the foundations?  

Also, why did she have to buy old bones?  Doesn't she have Dr. Tim or Sasha Green's remains somewhere handy?

Oh, boes, you're on a roll! So now Phyllis is officially a bone smuggler? Sneaking into the construction site and pranking them with bones is just too utterly ridiculous. I can't even break it down with questions because every smother forking aspect of it is totally absurd. I am picturing Phyllis on all fours with a giant mastodon bone in her mouth, digging with her paws and the dirt flying everywhere. And I know that's no more ridiculous than how ever they explain how she did it. If they even bother.

I'm thinking those scenes were filmed pre-COVID, unless they're being tested about twice per day or all quarantined together on set or something.

You are too kind!  But I must confess my memories were triggered by seeing the episodes again and with the help of many of you on this board.  Plus, the characters/plotlines I remember mostly have moved away from the current landscape.  But if the situation calls for it, I'll pop in.  Since I'm here, I forgot to give my theory on this:

Was surprised to see that they hadn't changed the opening credits except for a couple of minor extra graphics. Seems to me the hiatus would've been a good time to do a total overhaul.

If you noticed all episodes, regardless of year,  had the same Y&R logo and The Woman in Black walking toward the camera in the opening/half way mark.  Obviously this wasn't the case when many first aired.  My guess is the graphics department spend their time during the hiatus merging older original opening/half way credits with the current one, producing a standard one we saw daily.  Considering the stress and wine drinking during the height of lockdown, especially in L.A.  if production had then asked "While you're at, just overhaul the current logo" we might have tuned in one day and seen the letters Y&R replaced by F.U.

Wonder if we'll ever see bratty Connor again?

Dang, Amanda and Nate make a hella beautiful couple. Their children would be gorgeous. Meanwhile, what was up with that side-eye Nate threw at Amanda as he was leaving the Gluttonous Parfait? Is he already jealous of Billy's seeming importance in her life?

Meh, not sure how long I'm going to be able to stand watching scene after scene of Devon and Elena propping each other with all their schmoopiness. The meta of it is not cute to me.

Nick, the only reason the situation between Abby and Phyllis has gotten personal is because your crazypants succubus of a girlfriend made it personal. She makes everything about herself. You're throwing in with the wrong side.

Were Phyllis and Summer even in the coffeehouse at the same time, lol? The forced perspective was was looking too forced to me. 😉

I liked Chelsea's romper.

Yeah Abby, Chance has your back all right. From six feet away. He must have limbs like Stretch Armstrong. 🙂

Bad ice cream?!!!????!! Nooooooo! Sacrilege!

Oh come on. Archeologists will determine in short order that those bones found on Abby's construction site came from somewhere else. Phyllis is not this stupid.

What was the deal with Chance's pants? It looked to me like his belt was dropped about an inch lower than the waistband. Is that a thing now?

The second episode was filmed before the shutdown so there wasn't any social distancing happening.

I just thought of something, after watching all the characters speak to each other so far apart you'd think Nick and Adam forgot to Febreze their underwear.  Does this social distancing filming mean we won't have to see the ritual elevator sex for the foreseeable future?  Which also means no tabletop defilements or couches constantly damp and dank and smelling of Nick or ButtBiscuit???

Finally, a glimmer of hope emerges.....

I am not sure what you mean by this, but the really old eps I watched (I am in Canada) all had the original opening credits.  Which I loved seeing. I didn't pay enough attention but they may have had the sashaying woman mid-episode.

I really loved seeing the opening credits from over the years, seeing the actors in their youth and also who was being showcased as the star of the show at that time.

Yes, I think the headless sashaying woman didn't show up in the opening credits until the early 00s. I did a deep google dive on it and various old conversations on other soap boards claim that she appeared in the 90s but was only used as a mid-episode transition. Some say it showed up shortly before MS started playing Phyllis. (MS has said in an interview that the woman is her.) I'm curious enough that I'd go back and watch some of the episodes around that time but on CBS.com the open access to them has been shut off again.

I could have sworn each episode, no matter the year, opened with the sashaying woman during the hiatus.  Maybe it was the pandemic wine and margaritas.

So there's going to be a lot of texting now. Okay.

Hey, Kevin's finally looking his age with that dusty gray hair. Wonder if Michael will reappear with his platinum gray?

I was surprised to see Sharon wearing a form-fitting white top. And was that a bra? Seems like that would not feel good right now.

Speaking of whether to wear a bra: Adam's moobs. Oy. But how naive is he not to think Victor would have long since gotten to George? Now he'll just spin out even further if he feels like all avenues to the "truth" have been blocked.

Doesn't Esther get a quarter of a million $$ a year from Kay's estate? With free lodging she's not exactly hurting financially. Calm down, Kevin. Let grandma do her thing.

I liked Victoria's top. Chelsea's not so much.

Ugh, AFAIC Victor will never deserve the graciousness Jack extends to him in spite of stuff like Marco and Colleen's heart.

Should I be ashamed that I'm intrigued by those Love Island commercials? So much pretty. Very young pretty but still. 🙄

Pssht, Faith probably hears her classmates say worse things than the "f" word. Calm down, Sharon. Let your little girl grow up.

Wonder if Victoria and her kids are still living in the tack house?

Bixley. Sure hope it's not yet another sibling Jack, Ashley, and Traci don't know about. Or that Dina's actually saying, "Big sleep." 😐

That's what I think as well, they were shot pre-COVID.  Still, there are some scenes like Natey Nate Nate and GTFO my screen HoLarryCurly, and they're definitely NOT at least 6' apart. I kept thinking when they were talking at the lobby bar counter yesterday, 'I'd like to see the droplets that Nate's letting fly directly at her face..." I tried watching but it was like watching paint dry and I had to stop.

Beside Nostrils it looks like TIIC restyled Kevin’s, Adam’s, Jack’s hair.  In addition, they all look a bit lighter.  

 

What I said before about Faith’s age is that I Know she’s 13 but she looks older than my 14 year old granddaughter and most of her friends. 

 

What I don’t understand is how TIIC is portraying Sharon’s surgery. Sharon had a lumpectomy but the Surgeon would allowed out of the hospital until there was a preliminary pathology report.  Sharon said it would be a while to get a full pathology report and in a few weeks she would be going back for chemo and radiation but once cancer is exposed to the air, it has a tendency to spread more rapidly so it wouldn’t be taken so casually.  I guess TIIC just wanted to draw out the drama.  One other thing. Sharon would be wearing something more loose fitting let alone a bra. Those things would be irritating her incision. I can tell you from experience, it’s been months since my operation, and my incision are still very sensitive to the touch. 

 

I’m wondering if Adam is more upset about killing someone or finding out how much Victor really loves him.

Now this is an interesting point. I'm sticking on this level, 'cause I may have blown out a few too many neurons, courtesy of the Australian wine industry and the plague. As most of us know, I do not find MG particularly attractive. Male model boys are not my thing. At all.

And often--videlicet [hey boes, I used a fancy word] Greasy Theo in his current mode--there is always the danger of cheekbones submerging when a few pounds come to roost. Theo has this problem.

That said, the other day when Adam was ratcheting around the apartment with Chelsea, in, I presume, a post-plague bit of footage...wait for it! I actually thought he was kind of cute. Something about the softened cheekbones and perhaps lack of cheek-sucking-in maybe. Now, I should probably step into the confessional. Let me check to see if the "occupied" light is on.

Yeah, I get it. I made a similar observation about Lily earlier this week. She seems to have put on a few pounds and it's filled her face out noticeably. I thought it was a better look for her. Adam used to look a bit skeletal in the face too and now he doesn't so much. Problem is, he also seems to have developed a C-cup. Maybe the show should stay away from showing him in profile until he can start hitting the gym again. 😼

Now that Victor has told Nick the latest Big Family Secret pretty much the whole town will know within a week. Because Nick will tell Phyllis. Not smart, Victor, unless you want Adam to be punished by the gossipmongers. Oh, and Christine. She'd never let the small matter of jurisdiction stand in the way of her trying to prosecute Adam for a murder which occurred in another state. Just ask Sharon. 😉

What's the deal with Nikki's hair? It looks like she sleeps on it while it's still wet.

So do Nate and Elena not have any other staff at the clinic? You think they'd have a medical aide who could double as a receptionist. Or is that not done?

I get that Y&R is ignoring the pandemic in their storylines but having Tessa go to a music festival? And Mariah rattling off the names of all those famous singers? Meh, I don't like that. Don't rub our noses in it, CBS.

GMTA. Ashley wondered if this "Bixley" was another kid Dina had out there somewhere. Heh, instead of Dina Mergeron they should change her name to Dina Retcon. 🤔

Bleh, I hope we're not going to have to watch Sharon do her dime store shrink shtick on Adam to help him get his memories back. As a wealthy man he can afford to pay for the best professional help money can buy. Which would not be a suburban dilettante whose master's degree in psychology still smells like printer ink.

Tessa doing a duet with Lizzo? It is to laugh. On her best day I think Tessa sings like a whiny porpoise. She couldn't keep up with Lizzo.

Wait, what? Is Elena catching feelings for Nate? What was that wistful face she pulled after they joked about the patient with the eye injury?

The previews made it look like Victoria and Jack are conspiring. Oh dear. 😞

I liked Amanda's top. Am waiting for Worn on TV to post it so I can see how much it costs. It was quite a thrill (🙄) to learn that Victoria's lacy top yesterday goes for $300.

The actors left to their own devices for too long has proven just how stringently the GymTanLaundry regimen was followed pre-coronavirus (Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino™). Atonal Adam needs a haircut, colon cleanse and steeple chasing to get back to his cheek-sucking worst.

MG has never been appealing to me; it never helped that the Adam Newman character was a actively sociopathic version of Victor that lost every nefarious scheme conjured in his fevered brain pan, but MG is too fond of sneering and slouching in distain, while adopting Justin Hartley's stutterbarking manner to fill in for the acting talent gap.

Quote

But that white get-up on Chelsea? All the choices made her look more manly than ever. But not in an attractive way.

The very broad shoulders of the white outfit and severe, dark hair style didn't do much for her -- Another one that needs a cut and color.

I chuckled while Chelsea was shouting her concern for Atonal's murderous realizations across the room. The Corona Effect isn't going to help Y&R much, though the scenes on Show are moving along at a brisk pace.

Atonal will remember his youthful murder through Sharon's sexual therapy sessions (Why is Spider ... er, Atonal Adam in denial about his memory lapses?) -- It'll be so much fun to watch Atonal blow up his relationship with Chelsea for the second time and with the same woman; Boo Hoo Connor. Team Sharon will be fractured and disillusioned. Faith will be involved with teenage angsty acting out and Rey Rey will be sullen and snarly, in love with another woman that's cheated on him.  

TIIC will use SC/MGs real life relationship to make the sexxxy times on the screen

One other point: Sharon was wearing a bra, crewneck sweater post-surgery and reaching for the phone with her left hand (the side she had the lumpectomy)? And still hasn't heard from pathology?

Exactly.  Was he mad because he didn't put in for his boy scout homicide merit badge?  You'd think that finding out he started murdering as a tween would be small potatoes, considering he just recently killed a guy in Vegas on behalf of NotaChance, that he sorta pushed Dr. Taylor into oncoming traffic and was responsible for Richard Hightower's death.  Delia doesn't count since he wasn't even putting in the effort for that one.  

As for Daddy Dearest, who is now being lauded by Nikki and Nick as, gosh darn it, just loving Adam too much, this paragon of virtue stood by and watched Skye become a volcanic Hawaiian Luau BBQ Kettle chip, did more heinous crap than is worth remembering, but THIS, THIS he had to hide from Adam?  He framed Adam and sent him to prison and he didn't think THAT was at least as bad as this?  What a great Dad.  

The two of them absolutely deserve each other.  

What nobody deserves is the disaster that is Nikki's hair.  Talk about a criminal offense.

It was only a matter of time before Sharon took a big dump on "Team Sharon".  Who knew, though, it would come in the form of Adam?  That's what comes of eating too much deep dish pizza and sushimi at the same time.

So it's Bixby, not Bixley.  I'm sorry it turned out to be a camera, though.  I was hoping she was remembering she'd had an affair with Bill Bixby.  I know he's no longer with us, but how cool would it have been if the NEXT previously unknown Abbott sibling turned to be the Incredible Hulk?  Take THAT, Victor Newman!  Oh, the mincemeat he could make of ButtBiscuit......I can dream, can't I?.......

I certainly hope Devon and whatshernamewholookslikeHillary asked the wait staff for some towels.  They shouldn't expect the staff to clean up after the tongue bath they gave themselves at Society.  

Elena!  Eyes up HERE, please.  Remember, you can't touch Nate Natey Nate Nate Nate with a 10 foot pole.  OK, 6 feet, but to be on the safe side.....

Nice going Banana Breath, insulting Victor’s ex-wife, Hope, by calling her a bitch. Classy, very classy. 

 

Banana Breath and Nostrils are competing for who can be the bigger prick. Neither of them have the right to cast the first stone for they are not without sin. 

 

Banana Breath didn’t know that Adam was there but he barges into her house without knocking.  Banana Breath is the real son of bitch. At first he left out the main part of the story to Sharon that Adam was protecting his mother because he didn’t believe that’s what happened.  Yes, Nikki was bitching about Adam because she’s jealous of Adam but Victor was a little more graceful in accepting Det Deadwood as Nikki’s son. 

 

Jack and Ashley got it wrong. Dina wrote bixley but she actually meant Zaxbys. Dina wanted some buffalo chicken wings, fries, and  a coke.  😉

A bar tab?  How can I turn that down.  I accept!

I'm not watching the show but still reading posts.  It's not the plots I'm interested in.   I'm fascinated by your descriptions of the "look" of the show and the obvious impact COVID-19 has had on filming.  Hair and makeup looking bad.  Apparently the only two real life couples will be able to get frisky.  Marks set to allow the camera crew to make it appear actors are closer than they really are.  BTW: remember these tricks of the camera when planning a hotel stay and pictures claim it's close to the beach.   Anyway, I wonder during the hiatus how many storylines TPTB decided to change, disregard, rush, or delay due to restrictions.  Also, if you Preverts had a direct voice to the them, what pre-COVID-19 storyline do you feel with clever writing and imagination actually has the potential to use the restrictions to become much better than what was probably planned originally.

I didn't realize it was new shows this week so I didn't think anything about the kid automatically skipping the recording to watch another show two days this week. I have refused to watch any virus adapted shows but I guess I will watch YR. There is a stilted demeanor among all the actors which kind of reminds me of amateur plays but I can deal with that on the short term.

I liked Chelsea's poofed short sleeve blouse but there was too much Chelsea in that episode. Plus also, man those white pants were tight yet nary a camel toe in sight. I think I might warm up to her a bit if she were to do a shorter fring-y hair with cool bangs to match. I guess a bit longer version of what Adam is sporting now? And if she would learn to breath less noticeably.  Adam looks better-ish while also looking worser-ish.  He is sporting some sunburn it looks like on his nose and cheeks. And is he growing a goatee? Hmmm.

I only caught the opening scene of one episode that had Nikki. I love the color but dang, could she not see how horrible that curl was that was spread across her cheek? Or feel it? It is like she forgot to do that eighties thing of flipping head down, shaking out the curls, then flipping head back to get the perfect amount of poof. Also, have they done some tweaks to that set during shutdown? I seemed to have noticed some wallpaper that I didn't notice before or something was odd. 

Jack, fire your barber! 

I did love the Jack and Victor at the bar scene. I also hate those bar stools something fierce and wish they still had GCAC around. 

Summer's head looks like it shrunk a couple sizes. 

I haven't watched Friday's episode yet to see any of the other actors.

You would think that it would feel good to have it back, but in fact I think I now realize I really don’t care about these characters and haven’t missed them. 
Bummer. I think I’m out?

I will check in here now and then because this board is far more I retesting than the show.

@lgprimes I was the opposite. I thought I would love the retro episodes but after the novelty wore off the first week I just looked enough to see the sets/fashion/hair then deleted. I was bummed that I missed some of the new episodes and can't wait until for next week to start. I actually embrace the ridiculousness of soaps, it is part of the charm for me. I love just having a daily thing that I watch quickly. Or if I am telling the truth, I intend on watching daily but let them pile up and watch a bunch at a time. I do have actors that I just don't like but the more campy a soap gets, the more I like it.

@lucindaWalsh  

your description of enjoying camp is exactly how I feel about the Bold and the Beautiful. It’s so awful I can just laugh at it. And because it’s only half an hour I don’t mind the wasted time.

I think I am tougher  on the two shows that I watched as a child, GH and Y&R, because they once really meant a lot to me.  They disappoint me now. I stopped watching GH decades ago. 
I went into a career in health care probably because that show made it seem so interesting and important. It kills me that it’s a glorified mobster show now.

I can completely relate to this sentiment. My childhood/teen/adult show was ATWT. I sadly had to give it up about 5 years before it ended. I just couldn't anymore. I never ever ever missed an episode. Back in the day I had a rotation of four vcr tapes just to make sure I never missed anything. But then one day I was just eff it, this show sucks and I can't watch another minute. I was a casual viewer of YR and it filled the void that was left of not having my daily story fix.

@boes, thank you for this! I recently posted that I thought Phyllis did this.  So it was Adam!

As for Daddy Dearest, who is now being lauded by Nikki and Nick as, gosh darn it, just loving Adam too much, this paragon of virtue stood by and watched Skye become a volcanic Hawaiian Luau BBQ Kettle chip, did more heinous crap than is worth remembering, but THIS, THIS he had to hide from Adam?  He framed Adam and sent him to prison and he didn't think THAT was at least as bad as this?  What a great Dad.  

Yes, this, tragically this. I will never forget Skye.

Pricktor also tortured Jack, caused Stitch's sister's death (cannot remember her name) not to mention all the people on the ship that died when Jack and Marissa escaped.

It's completely incongruous for Pricktor to now be really and truly sad about poor Adam killing a bad guy when he was 11.

So it's Bixby, not Bixley.  I'm sorry it turned out to be a camera, though.  I was hoping she was remembering she'd had an affair with Bill Bixby.  I know he's no longer with us, but how cool would it have been if the NEXT previously unknown Abbott sibling turned to be the Incredible Hulk?  Take THAT, Victor Newman!  Oh, the mincemeat he could make of ButtBiscuit......I can dream, can't I?.......

And Bill Bixby was married to Brenda Benet who played Lee Dumonde on Days of our Lives. Their young son died and I think a year later she took her own life. I will never forget that.

I loved Bill Bixby! Courtship of Eddie's Father, The Magician, The Incredible Hulk.  He also had a sort of tragic end.

Whoa, sorry to bring mood down, but you sent me on a Bill Bixby memory tour, @boes

I loved him.  The Courtship of Eddie's Father was such a good show!  I'd forgotten about how tragic it was for both him and his wife when their child died.

Senility does that to a guy.
