Most days, I can tolerate Y&R's Victor being a blowhard and even find it entertaining (not that I'd put up with him in real life, mind you). But today, as he reamed out Nikki for sleeping with Deacon, I wanted to reach through the TV screen and shake him.

As Digest's B&B editor, I was impressed with today's episode in which Stephanie (Susan Flannery) went to Los Angeles's Skid Row and interviewed the homeless to find out how they'd gotten to where they are in life. It was a different type of episode from what we usually see on soaps — especially for the glam B&B — but I thought that it was well done and offered a thorough look as to why some people end up on the streets.

Last night, I attended the Sound Of Music sing-along in New York City. Though I know most of the songs by heart, I hadn't seen the movie in its entirety since I was a child and was surprised by what a good film it is — cheesy musical numbers aside. It still holds up and has a modern feel, even though it's 45 years old this year, just like DAYS OF OUR LIVES. It's also popular all over the world and has been recreated in some form in nearly every country.

Much as I like YOUNG AND RESTLESS's Cane and Lily as a couple, I'm getting tired of all of these outside obstacles interfering in their relationship.

Because I write for a magazine, I probably think about YOUNG AND RESTLESS's Restless Style way more than I should, but I find the publication to be very confusing.

I've really been enjoying the scenes between BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL's Bill and Liam, as they get to know each other as father and son. Don Diamont (Bill) and Scott Clifton (Liam) have great chemistry, and the storyline has also allowed Heather Tom (Katie) and Kimberly Matula (Hope) to shine.

As much as I love drama on soaps, I really like when we're shown those quieter "slice of life" scenes that makes us belief that these characters actually live normal, mundane lives in between the action.

While Jana's decision to work for Delia and Reed's nursery school certainly made for an interesting plot point on Y&R, I can't help wondering what type of school — especially one that deals with very young children — doesn't do a thorough background check on its teachers.

While most of the characters in Steffy's orbit on BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL have willingly accepted that this very young woman with not that much business experience was just handed her mother's Forrester Creations shares, I'm glad that Thomas isn't just jumping on board. He's the older sibling and has had just as much experience as her at the company.

Let me begin this by stating that I do not condone violence in real life, unless it's absolutely necessary. That said, I don't mind a slap or a catfight every now and then on the soaps, especially if it's in a very dramatic scene and the move adds uh, punch, to the story.
