I expect there will be a wide variety of opinions on Monday's return
of Y&R. As for myself, I thought they did a great job considering the obstacles. I'm happy that they caught us up and reminded us of the
main storyline threads, and it immediately drew me back in. And IMO
the did a great job with the camera angles and the settings mostly in Chancellor Park so as to make the social distancing less obvious.
They're definitely handling it better than B&B has since returning to
the air with new episodes; Bold & Beautiful's scenes have seemed
awkward and "off" to me.
BTW, Nikki looked stunning. For the past two or three years, MTS
looked downright sickly. But today, she was back to being her
gorgeous, glamorous self. And as for the other characters... well,
I've been complaining as loudly as anyone about lame storylines, etc.
for quite a while. But when the rubber meets the road it was good to
see the cast all back today. :-)
Oh, and one more thing. There is something different about the
production that I can't put my finger on that is actually an
improvement over what was being done previously. Maybe the lighting?
The music? The wardrobe? A combination of everything? Whatever it
was, I was glad that I was happy with Y&R's return to the air. I was
afraid that it was going to be a big let-down... but it wasn't. Kudos
to the producers, writers, directors, actors and all the
behind-the-scenes folks who put the show together under the adverse circumstances. I think they did a great job! :-)
