Y&R - Update

Sorry for the lack of a show update. You know how somedays you feel like a nut and someda--this analogy is going nowhere. Basically my point is that I'm a lazy bastard who didn't feel like watching Mah Show yesterday. That said, here are a few things I'm sure of:

Nick and Phyllis got their stank on and it was alternately hot and disagreeably wrong. But mostly face swallowing hotness.

Dru set the town on fire without the need for matches or gasoline or anything flammable really. Just her Druocity. New word, made it up, write it down.

Colleen whispered/yelled/whimpered for JT as he struggled in his bonds while wondered when his Daddy Bear would release him. Then he tried to figure out how to unzip his pants without using his hands.

Sharon decided that she wants a new go at her marriage except not, maybe, later, okay, what, yes, no, forget it, love you, hate you, Nick, please, no, Brad, can't, can, coochie, coo, kaleidescope, milshake, right, left, right, wrong, head, shoulders, knees and toes. Then she passed out from the strain.

Victor put Neil in a headlock while giving him a noogie and proclaiming him his "Brotherfromanothermother!". This was the best scene of the episode and it lasted for a solid 8 minutes.

Daniel and Lily were too cute to exist. And she sat on it. Daniel smiled. Okay, maybe this was the best scene.

Random observation from today (in Can. a day ahead): JM can't act. Sure, he's working the overly composed, calm, self-contained vibe, but it's not actually acting. Why am I just noticing this now? ClackClack isn't even selling a vibe, she's out-and-out gawd awful. I happen to know for a fact that OLTL is wasting HT's talents so why can't they try and get her back? Mmkay?

You're speaking to man who's spent the past 2 years praying that they'll find some way to convince HT to come home.

And JM can't quite carry off EB's quite power or insightfulness (not that Braeden is some dynamite actor, most of the time he relies on his old tics (but not now, now he's doing a fantastic job) but he always made Victor quietly strong), which is what I think they're attempting here. Trying to make Nick have a quiet dignity, some inner-conflict that just isn't coming across. It's rare that he's the strongest presence in a scene, which is why relying on him to carry the weight of the baby reveal was something of a mistake. When Nick returned he didn't appear conflicted, he looked like he returned from a plot point, not some introspective journey.

Exactly! Nick looked BLAH. Happy? Sad? No, more like constipated, like the man is in dire need of a bran muffin. And yet, he's STILL not the worst male actor - the two men who portray Paul & JT step right up! Oh, and I totally agree with you about EB. Even if he was utterly failing it's enough just to watch Niki's slow realization that she's married to a whackjob. The niceness, the dog, the happy!calm instead of the tense!calm, poor Niki's going to pop a cap in Sharon's ass just to keep her own sanity. Actually, that would be awesome. I smell an Emmy nom.

I am totally with you on your JT and his Daddy Bear thing, because you know what JT and his Private Dick ("just the fax, ma'am") were doing in that Cleveland hotel room. Mmmmm-hmmm. ::nod nod::

I am loving your blog. I am loving YOU!

I love you too! I feel like Roberto Benigni right about now.
