Literally Without Speech
I can usually be counted on for a lengthy, wordy discussion of, oh...anything, ever. So why am I left with "What in the...how is that...WHY?" when faced with the end of Friday's The Young and the Restless?
I mean, Lauren came face to face with the smirking Evil Lauren Lookalike, which marks the SECOND evil lookalike story currently happening on the show right now and the, like, FIFTH OR SIXTH lookalike in Genoa City in the past few years (right? Lauren/Evil Lauren, Patty/Emily, Will Bardwell/Jeff Bardwell, Sheila/Phyllis, Katherine/Marge, Carmen Mesta/Whats-Her-Face, WHAT THE HELL?) and is just so relentlessly stupid that you'd think I'd have HUNDREDS of things to say, with all sorts of four-letter words and hysterical run-on tangents and a self-righteous call for the firing of the executive who greenlit this disaster, and a list of things less ridiculous than this offensively stupid thing (such as the advice and anecdotes detailed in Jennifer Love Hewitt's book The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I am A Love-Aholic",Nicolas Cage's hair, the sudden resurgence of rompers) and yet...all I am left with is "What in the...how is that...WHY?" And tears. Lots of tears.
