THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has always been one of the best daytime shows on Television. It's stories took a while to tell ... sometimes WAY TOO LONG ... and the actors are top notch! But over the past 2-3 years the show has turned into something that is neither entertaining or enjoyable!
The stories take no time at all to tell and are bad, at that. The recent reveal on Friday that ALL CHARGES AGAINST ADAM are dropped was ridiculous! There was no build up, no suspense, no drama, just Adam walking into the GCAC and meeting up with his dumb girlfriend! I almost missed it because I was so bored watching the episode that I almost turned the TV off.
Stories that suck right now include the ADAM/SHARON story because ADAM stole Sharon's baby, basically had his hand in the killing of Ashley & Victor's child, most likely killed that kid's father, gaslighted Ashley for months, among other misdeeds and hasn't paid for anything. For the story to be believable he has to actually apologize to someone OTHER THAN Sharon and stop saying "No matter what I do they will always hate me".
The Daisy story was ridiculous and not worth bringing that actress back only to have her EASILY get away again even if it created more story. Sadly, the stories fall in the DUMB category. Jana faking amnesia to get Kevin and Kevin falling for it?! Billy buying Daisy's baby for 2 million dollars from the niece of the woman who took/sold Nina's son Ronan?! To Daniel getting knocked out with a flash light and left for dead from woman who just gave birth?!
There are no HUGE payouts!
