I am excited for the 10,000 episode and all the festivities, but the promo left much to be desired. I want more! Ha! Ha!

As is the case with most climaxes of a story, it should be interesting to see whether next week is good or a snoozefest. I hope poor Paul’s situation gets wrapped up and Victor gets back to running his company and then the new head writer give us a good, but fast-paced story.

LOL now Y&R is copying the great GH once again with the ”live tweeting”
What’s next Y&R will have band as ” Port Chuck”” lol
There will be more GH familiarity with Y&R with JP taking over.
Y&R has been struggling for a long time, how it stays on top rating wise is a mystery.
I am looking forward to the changes and hopefully better stories and if lucky Y&R will go out of the box! 🙂

I’m not excited about the 10,000th episode but I can’t wait to see Joshua Morrow and Sharon Case on the Talk. Love Shick! They’ve been a huge reason why I’ve watched Y&R for so long.

I am loving the fact that the suits at CBS are finally cross promoting Y&R with other shows (TPR and The Talk). It’s a huge milestone and it all leads up to the 40th anniversary of the show in the first part of next year. The Young and the Restless is known around the world as the best, and most iconic daytime serial out there, and this fan will be front and center for all of the fireworks! Thank you, CBS!

Just finished watching 10,000 show ( day earlier here) I was really disappointed, with all the hype I was expecting something more than what it was. The best part for me was new photos for the opening sequence FINALLY. I think I was more excited about that than for the whole show, because it has been a pet peeve of mine for years that they didn’t update those photos that were so out of date. And now they have, I hope that is beginning of great things to come.

Mary SF, what did you think about episode 9,999? I don’t know if it was my hormones, but seeing the sham of a funeral that the family had to endure and seeing them so heartbroken (especially Nikki) made me cry. It was great to see Victor walking over to Nikki, but after what you said, I fear that this feeling will be shortlived. I hate when a big story has climaxed and then there is a soft landing and then back to business as usual.

I am glad that we will finally get to see the long-awaited new opening. I am sure Michael Graziadei and is short haircut are gone, though. I loved that scene. But if Sharon Case got a new opening that doesn’t look like she has lost her car in the parking lot, that will be nice. 🙂

I can only hope that the new head writer can do our characters justice, and at a quicker pace.

I have been watching since 1979 and I lost count the number of times I have seen funerals for characters I know are not dead that I find it hard to empathize with the emotion. So for show 9999 I like they played up the farce that it was because it made think at least they are not attempting to convince me invest being upset over a death we all know didn’t happen again. I give MTS credit for pulling off another grave side scene off, but it would have meant more if I thought the character really died, like Cassie, Brad or Colleen, those deaths were real tear jeakers and for those kinds of deaths I will get out my box of kleenex and cry my eyes out.

I think there is something morally corrupt with Sharon right now. I know that it is just a SHOW, but think about the implications of having a “body” cremated? It was very unfair of her to take some John Doe and cremate it without finding out who he belonged to. What about that person’s family?

I guess I am in the minority because I do not for one second think Sharon’s antics are funny. It is sad. I don’t care what she knows to be true or not, but for the rest of the family to believe he was dead and then to do that to them was horrible. They had a better memorial service for her when they thought she was dead. I kept wishing someone would come up and punch her in the nose and get that smirk off her face. Her constant primping during the service. It was all just disgusting … in my opinion.

Perhaps Sharon didn’t really cremate John Doe. All we heard her say was she wanted to take care of things right away. She could have paid the attendant to tell the family the body had been creamted when in reality she made other arrangements to store him until she could figure out who he was. I think that is plausible considering how she treated the urn at the funeral. Maybe she knew no ashes were really in it. We can only hope the writers will address this in up coming show and tell us ,who this guy was, if not I am just going think Sharon did something with the body that was a bit more respectful than what we saw.

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.
