Quote Soulsistah: I think it's okay for fans to lament the downward turn in the quality of the writing...I agree with that opinion. This show was a lot classier before the new writing regime. Apparently, the old adage is still true - "sex sells" and that apparently is what a lot of people want to see on soaps nowadays. My problem with this is that daytime soaps is NOT prime time and there is (or was) a distinction for a reason.
When is all is said and done, to each his own. But for those who decry the shoddy, sensationalistic sexual style of the writing for more and more storylines of late, there are many others out there who feel the same way - and are writing the show to voice that opinion and, yes, some are tuning out as well. It is what it is.
ITA!! I flick off!! TV, media everthing has a responsibility.....given the circumstances of all that happen in this world.
A line has to be drawn somewhere.
My prayers are with all the families who lost someone yesterday and to the people of this world where this tragedy has touched you.
