Y & R could it get any worse
3 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I have been watching this show since I was a little girl with my mother, then with my daughters and now with my husband (yes he finally started to watch it with me). I would say almost from the very beginning. Over the years some of the story lines I didn't personally agree with but I stayed with the program because I believe that everyone has views or ideas that are different then mine. But over the past year I don't know who is writing the plots and/or determining which actors stay and who goes but I just can't take it anymore. Goodbye Y & R. Really Adam running over Delia - hasn't this character had enough negative, The character of Delia -already getting over cancer then to kill her off in such a tragic way, Jill and the box from Katherine is totally stupid, especially that her character would sell it on ebay, give me a break, like she needs the money. The Victor and Nikki characters should be dropped, just like the Brooks family, you run out of ideas for them - move on. The characters that needed to be dropped are kept on and the ones that need to go are still here. Enough is enough.
