    Absolutely love the new set for Victor and Nikki. Nice job set designers (I smell some Set Design Emmy’s coming Y&R’s way next spring)!

    It’s lipstick on a pig – or in Victor’s case, Formaldehyde in a corpse.

    MAB had done terrible damage to Y&R. And so far, all I see is JFP continueing the decline. With Phyllis still front and center in Jack’s storyline, and Victor still doing the same thing AND being front and center, I’ve stopped watching.
    And this time, maybe for good.

    With all the talent out there, why did TIIC insist on inflicting another failed producer like JFP on the show? I’m starting to believe they want Y&R to fail much like the intended destruction of AMC.

    Love it. A breath of fresh air. Very bright and modern. I f the storylines can get better, this can be the best soap. A long overdue change. I won’t miss the ranch at all.

    Thank you for sharing this, Michael.

    I think their new penthouse is gorgeous and befitting of Victor and Nikki Newman. I miss the ranch, but I can’t wait to see what they do with it [the ranch] when they are ready for someone else to move into the penthouse – and you know they will not want to abandon that gorgeous set.

    I also like that Victor and Nikki are still showcased and not on only once a week or on occasion as most of us had feared for the veterans.

    Improving the sets, I think Jill and company get a B+. I am glad they got rid of those hideous FAKE geraniums at Adam’s place. However, I’m still not convinced about the storylines yet.

    I think the storylines are in transition, it hasn’t been that long, and a good story line needs time to set up and put into play. I believe right now the show is doing filler because they have to put something on the air- whatever MAB plotted out a year ago was tossed out and a new game plan has to be put together. For some fans it is not changing quick enough, I like this pace, and I’m not complaining– yet- check me out in a year time- because I think it going take that long before we are really going to notice anything. Right now, changes to the sets, some new music, different camera shots are being done to give it updated look and the rest only time will tell.

    I am okay with the pace. I just do not like what they are doing to Kevin and I am pretty sure wherever they are going with Kyle and Phyllis it is going to be a big mess.

    They haven’t made me really mad yet except at the firing of Marcy Rylan. They really could have used that cute and talented girl. I think they were wrong there.

    I agree that I like that Victor and Nikki are being show cased and together. It is so nice to see them working together to take care of their family like normal people do …

    Definitely good for the show to update and making changes .

    All the new sets since Jill came into the series have been beautiful. My only wish is that the ranch stayed and was simply updated, and that Katherine’s home stayed its size, and just added that extra wall. But over-all, AMAZING changes. I’m thoroughly impressed!

    Ya don’t like it at all. Not his character or style. I am afraid this was a BIG fail. Sorry

    Sorry but I guess I hate change, and I really don’t like the new gray sterile penthouse. It is just not cozy like the ranch house was. The only houses I like on the show are Jack’s house, although now they have the dining room door closed, which makes it a little bit depressing, and I LOVE Sharon’s home at the ranch. Please dont change that one. Stained glass and tiffany lamps, NOT the gray shiny penthouse, for me. Ill always stick with YR though. It has always been there for me :)

    The doors to Jack’s dining are closed because they have shrunk the set. All the elements are there, but if you really looked it is all crammed together- the dining room doors were never that close to the fireplace ever. They also shrunk Katherine’s living room. I guess they needed to make room for all these new sets. And a friend of mine has suggested since a soap is more about the dialogue than the action, large sets are a waste and costly to upkeep, which might explaining the shrinking sets too. It just looks odd to me, but I will get accustom to it I suppose- and whenever they rebuilt the ranch, it will not be as big as it was either.

    I agree, Melody. I really like Nick’s tack house, especially the board games on the credenza. It feels and looks like a home with children in it.

    It’s too bad Billy & Victoria’s “Father Knows Best” home is not much fun. It seems to be fun when Reed or Delia comes to visit.

    Speaking of Sharon’s house, is the dragonfly chair new or have I just never noticed it before? I am noticing more and more of Jill Farren Phelp’s decorating touches like real flowers or very good silk ones throughout Jabot and Newman and Adam’s house.

    P.S, PLEASE give Katherine Chancellor a NEW “unblue” dining room:)

    I love new sets. The Newman ranch should have been torched long ago. New sets bring energy and a new way of seeing the characters. They should utilize more 4 wall sets like GL did. Soaps are not taped before an audience, so they should be more realistic.

    I LOVE the new set used for Victoria & Billy’s living room. Where can I find the gray sofa & love seat? Also love the teal accents used for club chair & drapes!
