Trivia

One of the favorite plot devices is to send children away to boarding school or out of town to live with former characters only to have them return a short time later as teenagers. Among those involved in this type of plotting were Victoria Newman (age 10 returned a year later as an 18-year-old), Nick Newman, Billy Abbott, Lily Winters, Noah Newman, and Abby Newman/Abbott.

Y&R #1 for 900+ weeks!!
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been a longtime viewer of Y&R. Since 1991, i was about 11yrs old, and i was immediately hooked. Watching "Victor" drive his car off the cliff, and everyone thought he was dead, meanwhile living with a new love and center of his life "Hope Adams". He then went on to having a child with this blind woman. Y&R over the years, has become something, that everyone can relate to i believe. After the passing of the well respected and beloved "Bill Bell", Y&R still kept their heads high, and delivered the finest in daytime television. Y&R, now recently claiming the title of "America's #1 Daytime Drama", has for the last couple years for me, been the best well poised and presented Soap on the networks. Hence the #1 title. Most fans of the show can visit the official Y&R site www.theyoungandtherestless.com This is one show, that over the years, have proved themselves time and time again, to be the best, and the most respected. The combination of lust, mixed with life expectancies, and life collaboration, has made this show unlike no other. I am a Y&R FAN4LIFE. Would luv to claim the #1 fan title, but there as u know, are many many fans who would claim to be the #1 fan of the show. But they are my on screen family, of 14yrs, i have watched them grow, and change into something, that i am oh so proud of now. I would love the honor of meeting the cast and crew someday, but for now, just watch the show....and experience the uniqueness for yourself!!!
