    Not into them at all.
    No build-up to their relationship,
    much less a marriage! So nothing
    But are they cute? Sure.


  2. Mary SF says:

    I am not against this pairing—just wished they took a bit more time to launched it, like they did when Traci developed a thing for the “pool boy” Brad— he just gradually wormed his way into the family— But I get soaps today either rushed through elements that should be slower and go a snail pace on elements that should be faster. Everyone needs a serious refresher course on proper pacing— but other than the rushed romance— this is your typical rich girl marries the boy from the wrong side of the tracks—- this will no doubt be one of many marriages to come for Summer– if the show lasted that long. Don’t hate it, but don’t love it— its just okay.


  3. Alan says:

    The Y&R writers have got to be kidding with this pairing — the wedding took longer than their entire on-screen “courtship.”


  4. Mike says:

    I think Austin is in Fenmore’s spot if he were around more.

    Austin & Summer = Lame


  6. KateA says:

    I like this pairing. I was watching Y&R and trying to figure out what is not working. Some of it is the writing but a lot of the problem is chemistry. There has been so many changes in actors that the chemistry has been lost. The perfect example to me is Dylan and Avery. They say the words but the body movements and expressions are not working. There is just no chemistry there. Chemistry is starting to form between Jack and Kelly. Jill and Tristan (can’t remember his screen name) are really cute together. Austin and Summer are working for me. The new Billy is struggling a little trying to figure out his character. I hope the flow of actors in and out slows down soon.


  7. Timmm says:

    How about the SIXTH thing I learned, who cares! They are being shoved down our throats because its summertime and we need teen stories! TEENS DONT WATCH SOAPS ANYMORE!


  8. mike says:

    Two talented young actors with good chemistry. Y&R will screw up their characters as they have just about everyone on the show.


  9. Engrady Pind says:

    Summer is a prime example of hormone-induced stupidity. Estrogen is doing a Niagra Falls on her. Someone needs to put the brakes on this independent little drama queen and do it soon. Isn’t it about time for Phyllis to wake up and give her daughter something to think about?


  10. Nicole says:

    I like this couple, as far as it being rushed , well I think that is the point. I think she will come to regret her decision about rushing into this.


  11. su0000 says:

    Summer and Austin are a downer..
    They are not hio and sex, they are not entertaining, they don’t do anything but bore me..


  12. Nikki says:

    I don’t like them at all. Ever since we lost Michael Muhney as Adam I push mute when she comes on. Even before all the drama she is not paired well for Nick & Phyllis’s daughter. She can’t act and always looks like she’s pouting. Boring as hell !
