On Friday, we see scenes of characters trying to find the balance between officious intermeddling and vital words of caution.
This issue in part is: how far can you bend the truth until it becomes a lie? Beyond that, when does one’s person’s version of a lie, if not of commission than at least omission, because so potentially toxic to someone you feel it is your duty to protect, give you the moral obligation to make things right, at least in the short term to prevent a tragic long term loss?
Most interesting about the way the characters played these elements out from a creatively written and reality-based script: in the role in which we usually see female characters, we see an outstanding job of Thorsten Kaye as Ridge doing that which we are used to seeing Katherine Kelly Lang as Brooke usually does. It is a refreshing element to watch.
The December 15 episode of the Young and the Restless uses brilliant elements of the films Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, It’s a Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz.
Jason Thompson’s performance as Billy Abbott IV entertains yet makes one think. True excellence won the daytime drama for Best Actor in a Daytime Drama for Mr. Thompson. I would not be the least bit surprised if that award is repeated.
The December 11, 2020 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful features the outstanding acting of Rena Sofer as Quinn Forrester.
The American actor Rena has a most entertaining way of delivering her lines and embracing the character that she takes from the writers’ page on to the television, iPad or any device carrying CBS All-Access®!

Episode 57 of season 48 of The Young and The Restless features the universal threat of the small unruptured brain aneurysm.
Victor and Lily, meanwhile, take law enforcement into their own hands.
In a scene that will never be forgotten, Michael tries to get Billy to settle on a felony issue which must be seen to be believed.
My compliments to the writers and actors for keeping the program going through the virus pandemic. It is loved, appreciated and fun to watch. #YR is just as fun to compare what one thought of how an issue was handled with loved ones. Even my dad has become a huge dan especially of Victor Newman.
