Y&R's mantra, work is important until it's not. 

Fen, don't quit your day job. Oh wait, you don't really have one. The streaming service Devon owns is making all the money. The revenue, on a single download, is minimal.  What happened to the Hamilton/Winters office?  It looks like Devon is now working out of his condo.  

Victoria, I really don't think that Banana Breath will turn you in especially if his mother is involved?  Yes, Victoria, turn your paranoia down into a simple persecution complex. 

Victor, I would rather have Leslie as my lawyer than Michael.  She's more trustworthy beside being the better lawyer.  

I would fire Victor's security team for incompetence. They didn't do a sweep for microphones and cameras.

Victor must get  a new security team every year and none of them have ever been effective.

Geez, Jack, stalker mode much? And please tell me he and Kerry didn't have sex in the Jabot elevator. Some remnants of Philly's crusted intimate bodily fluids are probably still in there. 🤐

Oof, those pants, Nikki. Not flattering. You're a billionaire's wife. Do better.

Hook. Bridge. Heh, look at oldheads Michael and Lauren all up on the lingo. Maybe Fen can include them in the music video for his new tune since they're so hip to what the youngsters are putting down.

One would think a scent called Jack of Hearts be in a red bottle. Guess that's not masculine enough, or there'll be a red bottled Queen of Hearts version geared toward women. Just in time for Valentine's Day!

Show, please tell me you're not still trying to convince the viewers that Nick the new Adam. Fail, fail, fail, fail.

Kerry, you're looking kinda shady over there. Why would you be wanting a sample of Jack's DNA? And, um, I guess nabbing one of the used condoms would've been too obvious? 🤔

So, does a bear crap in the woods if nobody hears it?  Hmmmm.....Does Nick?

And is an episode an episode if the main storyline is Nick blathering on and on and ON to Mr. Mumbles about who has the biggest dangling ganglion?

I think I'd rather listen to that bear........which would also be better than Devon's music downloads.

Does a tree falling in the woods make a sound if nobody is around to hear it?  Could that tree maybe fall on Fen and Ana, or maybe that bear in the woods could be hankering for a snack.....

One thing I'm sure of, the Pope may be catholic, but he's not going anywhere NEAR those woods, NOR is he gonna listen to Fen's song.....

After the mindnumbfuckery of today's brain dead storytelling, ya'll must bear with me.

Now about that bear.......

Good grief, the "Mia" actress is terrible.  She just is not a good fit for the role of hot-blooded vamp.  Surely there are better Latina actresses out there.  Maybe it is not that she is a bad actress; it is not her fault she was brought on in a rush, along with a host of newbies...this created a backlash from long-time fans.  She is all over the place (her character is), Rey Rey is all over the place, as is Sharon.  It is not the actor's fault; but good actors should be able to overcome a bit of bad writing.  Okay, more than a "bit" of bad writing...perhaps an entire show of bad writing.  When Victor being in jail for the 100th time is the most compelling storyline you've got...you are in big trouble.

My head is spinning. Does Mia love ReyRey or Arturo? Or both? Or neither? Make up your mind, woman. And ReyRey? You too. Commit to your wife or Sharon. Shit or get off the pot. I couldn’t believe how Cane acted toward Lily today. Just when I didn’t think he could be even more selfish or self absorbed, he lays the guilt trip on Lily. That’s the an excuse to go after Victoria. Lily was mean to him so he deserved to have another woman. Please get this character off of this show. Now.

How odd of Sharon to assume Arturo would continue to make himself available to do her apartment handyman work. Presumptuous much?

Holy cow, check out the gun show Rey has going on. And the heat must be working great in the apartment now given the tank top he was sporting in the frozen dead of winter.

Phyllis, given the big secret you're keeping from Nick, trying manipulate him to turn away from helping Victor and Nikki is going to backfire. When he learns the truth about your involvement in JT's murder coverup he will come at you like an AK47 loaded with poop bullets.

Gotta admire Nick for protecting Nikki's confidence despite Phyllis haranguing him to tell her the whole story. He should've told her it was private Newman family business and to mind her own. But then I suppose she would've played the Summer card.

Oh, okay, Mia is sorta trying to blackmail Arturo into sleeping with her so she'll keep quiet about the needless cuddling. I wouldn't exactly call it 3-D chess but it sure is messy.

Rey, why are you discussing your wife's insecurities with Sharon, the woman you've been lowkey flirting with for months? Nothing untoward happened in Kenosha so there wasn't a reason to lie about it. You just gave Sharon big ammunition to blow up your marriage if push comes to shove.

Just when you think Cane couldn't be a bigger douchebag he proves you 110% wrong. Again. Ugh.

Phyllis, you are a very bad person. Just wanted to remind you in case you forgot. 😑

I'm actually so out of fucks for Lily/Cane and Rey/Mia, I now have ED that even Viagra can't fix.  

Since when does Banana Breath need Phyllis' permission to do anything.  Sex can't be that good to put up with her emasculating ways.  I don't understand Phyllis who keeps pushing for Victor to be guilty when he's not.  She's just driving a wedge between her and Banana Breath. 

Typical cheater. Mia has to know everything Rey is doing but what she does is none of his business.  There is absolutely no reason to have Arturo there, in person, other than to try to have another "morning delight". 

Why did TIIC need a day player to be a reporter when they have Mariah?  When was Rey made a lead detective?  Wasn't he hired by the commission to solve J.T.'s murder but now he's doing drug busts. 

Lily needs to find love in Cellblock A and dump that idiot husband of hers.

Today's Y&R was so irritating I was forced to mute it. When do the new folks start? It is so inconsistent. One day it seems to be getting ready to phase away from the sucky stories they've been telling and today it seems they've looped back around to emphasize the stupid. All while running across the bottom of the screen they're asking survey participation. Survey says :dump Rey/Mia, restore legacy characters, we like Mariah,  we're not feeling Kerry or Fen, Cane sucks, etc. Nothing new. Didn't need a survey to get that info, just scan this forum. But I suppose survey data with numbers will communicate better than words. Just stop the stupid and maybe do a "best of" retrospective until the new scripts are ready. Or we can try out Days.

Still trying to wrap my head around Cain' s obvious attempt at emotionally manipulating his wife, who is in prison, by responding to her plea for support by saying, "You're the one who's walking away", after she had just patiently and thoughtfully explained that her schedule is not really her own in this situation.

What is there to think about? If Lily isn't constantly massaging Cane's brittle ego, telling him all her thoughts are focused on their future, clinging to every mumbled syllable, praying for their next meeting, telling everyone to go hang while Lily is late for her appointment to hug out the last few seconds with her fragile husband.

Cane is only concerned with how Lily's prison sentence affects him. He's making all these plans to go to Paris when she get's out; what an idiot. Lily will be on probation, probably living in a halfway house, have to get a job under strict guidelines through her probation officer, go to group therapy, start school -- There will be no la-di-da touchstone vacations to Paris, France. Lily probably won't be allowed to leave Wisconsin to visit Paris, Texas, much less leave the country. 

Quote

It's as if the writers want us to hate this character even more than we already do.

To them, I say: Mission accomplished!

If you are implying that a mission of dubious value was completed, or that a major error was made … Then yes … Mistakes, Cane Has Made Several Hundred, and takes no responsibility for them. 

No matter the precautions taken, bleaching and cleaning methods employed, how deep the toenail bed is excavated, Cane is the recurrent toenail fungus outbreak of Y&R.

Agreed with that it's just odd now, and hard to tell if the new regime is starting or what? 

What's ironic is that I actually think Mal Young was best when he was in his early days as HW, but had still made some of the visual changes. I'm assuming it was still Sally's stories but the pace picked up a little and there were some cool visuals (remember Victoria getting side-swiped in the car accident? I hadn't jumped on a soap like that in years). I think making him EP AND HW was the mistake, but from what I have heard it couldn't have really gone another way. 

I was at a loss on that survey what to do with Dina. I like her and the character so much, wouldn't mind seeing more, but not sure how they can. I don't have any family with Alzheimer's: would it be good to have her decline just slowed down (but still sad, and eventually have her pass away) or is that too dark? If Marla Adams wants to stay I say use her!

On Twitter someone had an idea about the Rosales family overkill and vampy Mia. Maybe she could move out of Rosales triad plots (she only seems to interact with other newbies which doesn't help). They suggested have single Jill back full time in Genoa City, lonely, her meddling not wanted by Billy.….and an unlikely friendship/mentorship develop between Jill and this brash, working class Miami girl trying to get her make-up service off the ground. Maybe then a romantic rivalry or an All About Eve type thing or business stealing an idea plot develops: history repeating itself at the Chancellor Estate.

The extra walking into Crimson Lights confused like “why am I here?” is a mood. I feel the same way watching, Sir. 

Mop’s hair is brushed and in a neat ponytail good for her. 

Fen’s hit song sounds like the free music for YouTube  used during time lapse vlog sequences or troom troom videos. 

I’m slightly offended so much airtime is devoted to these newbies marriage conflict literally do not give a shit if Mia makes it work with Rey, bangs Arturo, or gets high on mushrooms in a trailer blasting Enya. 

Lily looked pretty in here prison visit. I wonder if Sophia from Litchfield got her hands on her. 

Fen and Ana are a cute couple. 

Yes Cane parenting is so inconvenient. He and Mop are one strange couple.

Aaaannnndddd Cane's How Big of a Jerk Can I Be in the Shortest Amount of Time? Tour continues.

Whoever the new set designer is, they really seem to like hallways. The Newman ranch set looks smaller to me, even with the new hall.

Wait, was that a young Michael E. Knight hanging out in the coffehouse? Maybe Dr. Neville invented an actual age-reversal serum, hah, hah.

Instead of giving him bad career advice, maybe Sharon should've advised Fen to wash his face. There's some kind of persistent smudge on his upper lip. 😑

Ugh, Neil. Guess he and Nate are back to tag-teaming their Devon lectures.

Yay, Fen's Unce Unce Unce song is trending! 😉

Aw, Ana, greed goeth before a fall. Are you sure you can trust Fen not to sell you out? Also, not a fan of the extra glossy lips. Don't be taking makeup tips from Mia.

Dang, Phyllis! Foul. On. That. Play! Giiiirrrlll! For sure Victoria's gonna ruin you now.

Heh, the old "I think I left something at your house" trick. You are not slick, Cane. Chicks  have pulling that one since Grelkha coyly dropped her dinosaur bone bracelet in Frunud's cave on the way out the next morning.

Oh look, Phyllis. Is that your face in a zillion tiny pieces on the floor? You play petty games, miss thang, you get petty prizes. Stop trying to keep Billy on reserve for when the scales finally fall from Nick's eyes.

I’ll admit I’m not current on the music that’s trendy and popular today. However. That song of Fen’s was so auto tuned and fakety fake that it didn’t even sound like a human being was singing it. I know I’m hopelessly out of date but I’ve always thought that if you really could sing, you could just sing. You didn’t need auto tune, very loud bands drowning out your voice or too many backup singers. I can’t even understand the lyrics nowadays.

The only thing Mia and Fen can do for together is cancel each other out. Neither of them have anything they can trade up toward. Nothing. 

Mia's hustling makeup applications -- she has no influence and no power. Fen is a no-talent boy band reject drowning in over-production, willing to do anything to stay on the Darvon gravy train.

Mia on Fen would look like a turkey vulture cleaning up carrion, and Fen's appetite doesn't lean toward the turkey vulture … yet.

 

 

What's this noise Darvon is spouting at Neil about trusting Ana and her influence with the anonymous song writer?

Ana stole studio time twice to produce Fen's recording at H/W facilities, and has been lying non-stop. She continues to lie to Darvon and Neil about the origins of the song and her relationship to the writer. Fen is playing along with Ana's because he's benefiting from her lies, and is hungry for stardom. I expect Fen will come up with a plan to use Tessa as Ana's beard to play the part of "The Song Writer" to fake out Darvon and Neil, while Ana continues to lie and steal studio time.

There's no good reason Ana has to indulge in subterfuge, steal or lie to her brother. Ana never has to sell her music to H/W outright, no matter how Darvon and Neil prefer to do business. If they want to buy up music contracts to control everything and skim profits off the top, there are plenty of turds floating in the pool.

I was thinking that Victoria's hair style looks like something from middle school but I think those girls are a lot more sophisticated. 

Phyllis was being the wicked witch of Wisconsin on her broomstick terrorizing all in her path. If someone had smacked her hard at the memorial she wouldn't be clowning now.

I would rather lick a horse's ass hole than kiss Cane.  Nostrils is no prize but next to Cane, Nostrils is god's gift to the world.  What's up with the kiss though?  Is Victoria serving penance by kissing Cane or is it in retaliation for Nostrils' betrayal?  Also, why is Victoria confiding in Cane a man she should loath. 

Phyllis, back to being a junk yard dog, is now trying to cover her ass when she was the one to devise the coverup plan at the jump.  What part of Banana Breath doesn't know about Phyllis and Sharon being involved that they don't understand?  What part of there is only circumstantial evidence against Victor doesn't Phyllis understand?  

Did anyone else notice only the music was playing at CL and than at Devon's condo. I guess Fen's voice was not streaming worthy and they turned it into an instrumental 😉.  I remember the good old days when instrumentals could rise to the top of the charts ie: "Green Onions", "Sleep Walk", "Lonely Bull".  Devon tells Fen to quit his day job but he's not getting paid until Devon starts turning a profit but that is taking advantage of Fen and Ava. They both should be receiving royalties no matter what.

But, seriously, I just endured endless months of Phyllis bumping uglies with her former brother in law. Why do I need the same story with Mia? I don’t mind a troublemaker, but damn, make a different kind of trouble. And then they bring on Rey, supposedly for Sharon, but it doesn’t take him long at all for him to reunite with his wife, a woman he cannot possibly trust. The godawful “It Happened One Night” hotel scenario... if Mal ever had an original thought, it would be the first.
