    It’s an adaptation of the Australian Upper Middle Bogan show that Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope wrote. It’s a great show.

    Its great! Y&R tends to dismiss talent left and right and others with a knack for talent tend to swoop them up? Remember we lost LT. Harding to! He and Fish were great together and Courtney and Noah were TEN times better than Noah and Marissa!

    JUST the fact that she and Marco were in cahoots should be reason enough. Funny, Noah wants his grandpa to pay for his actions but Marissa is part of the Victor fiasco! Drop the woman and go hit on one of your dad’s waitresses at the Underground which we never see anymore and thankfully so!

    I was hoping that the writers would tie up the loose ends with Courtney Summer’s boyfriend.
