Comments From The Peanut Gallery

(October 2013)

Thank you to Rose... this month's guest columnist!

Letter to Y&R

October 22, 2013

Dear Executives and Writers at Y&R,

Iíve been a loyal fan of Y&R for many years; some may even say Iím ďover-the-topĒ when it comes to Y&R.  I drink my morning coffee out of a Crimson Lights mug.  I have a Y&R Christmas ornament on my tree.  Iíve been to CBS studios in LA where I watched Y&R being filmed and met many of the actors.  Iíve paid an exorbitant price to meet Michael Baldwin (Christian Le Blanc) at an Affair of the Heart Valentine Luncheon in Eugene.  Iíve truly loved Y&R, but two weeks ago my love affair with Y&R ended.  My TV and recorder are turned off.

What are you people thinking?  Why do you think your fans want to watch endless gloom and doom, death and grieving?  If I wanted to watch heartbreaking scenes, I could turn on the evening news.

I object to children being killed off on Y&R.  Why didnít you just send Delia to boarding school like you did her mother?  Didnít you learn anything from Cassie being killed off?  We want to see the children of Genoa City growing into their teen years where they will be beautiful, daring and restless.

I object to precious babies having eye diseases.  One scene of Adam holding that baby gladdens us for the whole day.  Why ruin it?

And speaking of Adam, many of us are darned tired of your endless ďthe world hates AdamĒ storyline.  We want to see his magnificent smile.  We want to see his magical love scenes like the winter wedding with Sharon and their fantastic weekend at Oak Alley.

Love, passion, beautiful clothing, parties, mystery, adventure, these things are not part of our every-day life.  Weíve loved seeing them on Y&R and hope to see more.

To the few children left in Genoa City like Faith and Conner, I can only say, ďRUN!  HIDE!  Go to boarding school before the ignorant writers of Y&R kill you off, too."

Well said!! 

I started watching Y&R about five years ago after seeing Days of Our Lives destroyed by bad writing. I spent 25 yrs watching Days and some hack writers came in and ruined my beloved show. I turned to Y&R because I had always heard how superior the writing on it was. When Jeanne Cooper died and they used Katherine's funeral as the backdrop for Paul and Christine's wedding I knew it was time to stop watching. When I read they were going to kill of Delia I knew I done for good. Once again bad writers have ruined a much loved show. I deleted it off my DVR and truth be told I don't even miss it. Sad, but true.
