Instead of all the talk about election and voting, I decided to give my nickle commentary about The Young & the Restless. I'm sure I'm not the only who watches this Soap Opera and wonders these things, so I'm going to speak on many things that make viewers go "hmm?"
So, if Victor Newman is so smart and savvy, how come he can't see that scheming heffa Meggie is playing him like banjo and how do you just let her move into your house and give her free reign? Okay, so she passed the "Victor Newman Background Check", but c'mon son, really? You can't smell 'troublemaker" as her eau de trampette?
And while I get that Nikki is a recovering alcoholic, you mean to tell me that you can't taste vodka? Even though vodka is not my drink of choice, trust it can be tasted in a drink. Grain alcohol is the ONLY liquor that I know of where you can pull that tastelessness on.
How come we don't know how old most of the characters are? You got kids (Abby) who are in high school, but then are suddenly graduates and drinking. Last I checked, the legal drinking age in the US was and still is 21.
And how is it that Noah went to Paris for school and his parents had no idea that he graduated and was coming back to the US?
I realize it's a soap opera, but damn the incestuousness of the relationships is really freaky. Uncle-Brother-in-Law for example Billy's relationship to Abby).
Are there no other places in Genoa City for folk to stay at other than the Athletic Club?
Lily is the mother of twins and traipses around the house in shorts and heels. Really?
Who, aside from Jack Abbott wears a suit and tie all day everyday? Can someone snatch him up take him to the Guess store for some jeans and a tee shirt.
How come the Chancellor estate, the Newman Ranch, and the Abbott mansion only has one or two rooms that everything happens in?
How do people have sex in the middle of the day, not shower and go about their business sex funky for the rest of the day?
How do people have these plots and schemes (Meggie/Deacon) and no one figure them out?
Okay, that was some mindless entertainment on my part. Next post will be back to our usual programming.
Btw, I hope you voted!
