Young and Restless
19 May 2006 | by wills3874See all my reviews

I have been watching "The Young and the Restless" since it started and I think it has the best writers and actors. But, I must agree with one of the other people that wrote in about that Gloria and what she is getting away with!!!! How long are they going to let her get away with it? What are the writers thinking about? Enoungh is Enough, how much do they want the people to take, she isn't even that good of a actress!!!!But, of course she is better then the last Gloria, they had. How can they do this to John Abbott? Especially while in prison! Especially with him slowing down and please let the man go out proud and with some kind of happiness for his children and letting him know what his wife is really like!!!! I think they are pushing the story a little to far, and once again good old Jack is paying for what the rat Gloria has done!!!! Please stop dragging this Gloria part on and let someone catch her!!!!! Also let Michael and Lauren be happy with there baby coming!!!
