Always a favorite show of mine
20 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

I remember when I first tuned into The Young and the Restless when I was 12 years old at home sick I got sucked into the characters of Lorie Brooks Prentiss, Leslie, Lance, Lucas, Snapper & Chris Brooks Foster and I invested into these characters then within less than a year they were all gone. I was devastated. It took time to get into the Abbotts & the Williams but I stayed true to this story than I have now. It is 21 years later and that is the only show that I am still hooked on. I grow up watching this show and it always fascinates me that there are always good stories which they are realistic for me and not much of a fantasy like other soaps. This was one true show that I would change my schedule around when I was in college. There was 3 semesters that I did nothing but watch Y&R when Nina was married that psycho David Kimble and had a beautiful mistress named Diane Westin (Devon Pierce, the most beautiful actress that I ever thought that appeared on Y&R). When that story was over I was once again devastated and picked up quickly with the other stories that was playing. That was probably my favorites storyline amongst with other favorite storylines like when Katherine blackmailed Jill, Jill's shooting, the transformation of Nina, the baby switch of Lauren's baby, Lauren and Sheila storyline, Victor's resurrection, Nick/Sharon/Matt/Amy storyline, the revelation to Danny that Daniel Jr. was not his son, Nikki's shooting, Diane's (Jenkins) plot to destroy Phyllis, Leanna plot to destroy Ashley and Victor and of course the best storyline is Katherine and Jill. Now if they were not on the show itself would be boring. But I love Y&R and I watch it every day.
