I tried to watch this show on Friday and just turned off the tv after about 10 min. I can't believe that I can no longer watch the y&r. Gosh, I remember cutting class when I was in college to follow the saga of Nikki and Victor. Now everything is so twisted and just plain gross. Characters are acting out of character. Hypocrisy reigns supreme. I think that is they main reason I can't watch it anymore. The hatred and vitriol thrown at Victor by the very people who plot against him and NO ONE CALLS THEM OUT ON IT. No community is this devious and this show no longer is a welcome escape from the day. What the heck are the writers thinking? Are they making the Newman kids super millionaires because Eric Braeden will soon retire and they want to fill a void? There was no reason for this. I just feel disgust when thinking about what has happen to this show.
