Long time viewer disgusted!
12 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have watched Y&R since the beginning through its good and questionable story lines, but now they are really getting ridiculous.

Twice in the last year or so, Victor has found 'look a likes' for Cassie and now Jack! The whole ridiculous storyline of Kelly, the nut, kidnapping Jack is really going far too far and is now verging on the just plain stupid! Please stop. I don't know how much more I can endure before I give up and switch off.

Still love Victor, but wish you would get rid of Genoa City's resident whore and nut job, Sharon. Sharon Case is boring and her storyline is constantly repetitive and now also BORING!
