Set in Genoa City, Wisconsin, The Young And The Restless is the thirty-year-old soap that centres on the saga between two wealthy families (the Newmans and the Abbotts) in the cosmetics industry. Head of the Newman clan is Victor Newman, the arrogant, cavorting billionaire and his wife Nikki; and running the Abbott show is Jack Abbott, the irresponsible, playboy CEO and his sister Ashley. Most of the show is centred on the competition between the two companies: Victor's Newman Enterprises and the Abbotts' Jabot. Written by
In 1976, ABC's "Wide World of Sports" used "Cotton's Dream", the theme song of "The Young and the Restless", as a musical background for a montage of Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci in action at the 1976 Olympics. Although Nadia never actually performed to this tune, it became associated with her; eventually, the song's writer officially renamed it "Nadia's Theme". See more »
I find them too slow with lousy acting and silly story lines. I only started watching this cause my roommate does and he told me the guys are VERY attractive. He's right. Some of the men here (especially Billy and Cane) are drop dead gorgeous but also it isn't bad for a soap. Sure, some of the story lines drag but, for the most part, this moves fairly quickly. Yes, some of the actors are bad but no one is terrible and some of them are actually VERY good. It's also easy to pick up--it took me about a week or so to (somewhat) figure out the story lines. That's another thing--this has multiple story lines going on at once and you're never really bored. Also the production values here are excellent. There are beautiful, impressive sets in virtually every episode. I started watching about a month ago and I have to admit I'm hooked! A very good, well-done soap.
