Today's episode of The Young and the Restless was the most tragic in recent memory. Every second, from beginning to end, was harrowing.
I can say with absolute certainty that this show is going to be empty without Victoria Rowell. Who else will be heartbreakingly fierce? Who else will be adventurous with hats and headwraps? Who else will store their cell phones in their cleavage?
I hope everybody who works for this show feels guilty about not giving Ms. Rowell the respect she deserves just for being awesome. Sure, she deserves respect for being an outstanding actress, for carrying the show for most of the past year and for refraining from vomiting all over Christel Khalil, but she mostly deserves it for being awesome. We'll miss you, Victoria!
That's the best they could do? A cliff? A CLIFF?! Is
it 1987 again and nobody told me? That's the last time this story was
Not to mention, did they create those smashing special effects in
Microsoft paint? That "river", especially, fascinates me. I keep
staring at it, dumbfounded. That's a watercolor painting. I am pretty
sure that they have been blowing their budget on Don Diamont's Mystic
Tan and Sharon Case's weaves.
How much more poignant would Lily's heartbreak have
been if Lily were still portrayed by an actress who could act? Much
more. Like a million times more. Her open mouthed "Noooooo!" was
delivered with all of the emotion of my similar open mouthed "Nooooo!"
when I burned myself on my flat iron this morning. That is to say hammy
and not to be done in front of other people, let alone on television. TRAGEDY
I guess it sort of sucks when your mother gets into a fight with two
ladies on the edge of a cliff and two of them fall over the cliff and
one of them is your wife's mother, but I guess it sucks even more that
you are doing this and watching your wife sob instead of watching porn.
This child has a job that requires him speaking and interacting with
human beings. I am not convinced that he is not an android. Watching
him try to speak the English language is like watching George and Izzie
have sex on Grey's Anatomy.
Horrific. Is he a contest winner? Does he pay producers to act on the
show? Because he's not okay. You could visibly see Tracey Bregman
losing her will to live as the show went on.
Diamont is the star of the show. I can read that sentence and I know
what all of the words mean, but it might as well be foreign, because it
makes no sense to me. Not only can he not act, but his character is
repulsive. What kind of a person flaunts his obsession with another
woman in front of his pregnant wife?
Even angry, Neil remains boring. When he heard that
his wife's arch enemy played a part in her going over the cliff
obviously purchased at the dollar store, he asked "What did you do?! I
asked you a question", with all of the passion of a man asking his dog
why his slipper was chewed. And you just know he was immediately like,
"Lily, I'm sorry you had to see me so enraged. I'm so ashamed of
