Genoa City, my little world
1 September 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I've watched this show since I was born. Maybe a little before: my mom used to watch it way before I was born so, Genoa City is a place I know well. It's my little world, my little universe. It's a place I love because it's full of characters I've met years ago: Victor Newman, Nikki, Nicholas, Sharon, Phyllis, Daniel... I'm used to these characters. They're so real to me. They're part of my life. I can't imagine living without watching their stories, their life going on. I know the characters, their life, their favorite places: Crimson Light, Gloworm, Restless Style, Jabot, Newman Enterprises... It's like I'm there every single day even though I'm not physically there. I really can't imagine a life without "The Young and the Restless". Already 40 years... and hopefully 40 more. I wish this show a long long life.
