    Isn't the disdain you (sanely, IMO) feel for the character a huge compliment for the actor, though? I think he's good at making you hate him! Good for him! He's just good at what he does for a living. We should all be so lucky!

    Good ol' Adam....you either love him or hate him....doesn't seem to be any middle ground!

    Re: Young and the Restless

    I've met Michael Muhney and I don't care for him as a person. Granted, when I met him he was just starting in the role of Adam Newman and the character was seriously in flux... but again, I didn't care for him as a person. Even though I truly cannot stand Adam, I absolutely can see that as an actor Michael has grown tremendously in this role. The character has also evolved ever so much over the years. I don't think I've ever said Michael Muhney is not a good actor... if I did, I should not have since Prhoshay you're right, the fact that he makes me so truly despise the character he plays is indeed a testament to his acting abilities (as well as the writing, IMO).

    For many years I could not stand Victor... now I love him! LOL!

    Back in the day, I could not stand Brad Carlton... but loved Don Diamont (and still do!!!!!)

    Early on I thought Traci Abbott was a total doormat and I cringed thru every scene. I've met Beth Maitland on more than one occasion and had wonderful conversations with her. She's warm, funny, self-assured, very engaging, incredibly gracious and nothing at all like the character she plays. Thankfully Traci Abbott has grown and evolved over the years and I quite enjoy the matured woman they're written her as in the past many years. I wish she'd have more of a role because she brings a nice balance to the Abbott siblings (Jack, Ashley and Billy).

    I don't think my high opinion of Beth Maitland has made me like Traci Abbott any more than I think my low opinion of Michael Muhney has made me despise Adam Newman. I could be wrong though! LOL!

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    I am with you. I remember someone asking me in the past why I liked Adam and I really couldn't pinpoint it but there is something about him that I find very sexy. I'm certain his smug attitude is a part of it but I just can't figure out the rest. Mind you, I wasn't a fan of Michael Muhney when he first took over the role and then one day I totally fell in love with the character.

    MTE!!!! LOVE HIM!!!

    I will watch every scene with MM! If there are days I find Y&R a bore I will FF but not through Adam's scenes.

    He has indeed come a long way since starting on Y&R and I think he brings so much to the show in his portrayal of Adam!

    How funny! LOL! I will FF thru pretty much every scene with MM nowadays! LOL! And yesterday, he and Sharon getting it on in Victor's office? OMG, shortest episode ever since I ff'd thru all of that and all of Victor and Nikki in bed and Nick and Phyllis "flirting" and well, pretty much the whole show! LOL!

    I did not yet see today's show but based on yesterday's show and the preview of today... do we think Genevieve bought BoN for some sinister reason or did she view it as a potential gift to Jack should he not get it? I'm on the fence but have to admit I'm growing to really like Genie Francis in this role now that the writers have stopped making Genevieve so crazy... or have they?

    OK, I give up....where did all of these "Adam Gnats" come from??? We've been infested!!!

    Carry on, girls....carry on!

    This show has picked up, lately! I would think that Genevieve's purchase of Beauty of Nature would be more for her son, or the twins, than for Jack. She does have some guilty feelings over her relationship with Cane/Ethan. I love that she is being sooo sneaky!!!

    Have to agree Adam owns this show now. The 'stache has met his match. He makes all the other male leads look boring...even my forever favourite, Jack.

    Don't know yet what's up with Genevieve, but if she's being sneaky she's certainly very conflicted about it. They need to finish up this Patty foolishness, though. It was too soon to bring her back. And I'm pissed Nikki didn't go to jail. One of the more unbelievable aspects the writers have come up with.

    Also, someone please tell me the point of bringing Ricky into the fold. He's as superfluous as Paul is at this point in the show's history. They would have been better off keeping Heather (but the original one, please). And I would like to see Chase back. The actor & the character really grew on me.

    How about the time when he was talking to Sharon and asked her "If she and Victor were registered anywhere as he would like to buy them a wedding gift. He said if not, then he can buy them some plexi-glass cleaner"!!!!!
    I adore his humor, if ya dont get that, you dont get Adam
