    Congratulations to them, but I still think these writers can do a way better job than what they have been doing and what's been airing.

    Congratulations! I'm sorry, though, because now I must complain about the present state of writing. Chance after chance has been lost to surprise the viewer with a plot turn that would have added depth to story, and character. When the plot does turn, the writing is substandard. What's happening? Writer's block? Try thinking out of the box: maybe, for example, write as if the viewer was reading a good book. Each day a new chapter. I know that is the goal, but, at present, the writing is definitely missing the mark. migichph
