I think LML, MAB, PRATT/JFP have all lead to me not tuning in as consistently as I once did. So much bad writing, OOC characters, confusing or down right stupid plot points for the last 10+ years has taken its toll. I feel for Mal, b/c although I don't like some of his storylines, at least they are more character driven and I can recognize who vet characters are again.


They lose loyal viewers when they take beloved characters & write them as doing such horrible things IMHO. If we cannot even like a single character, where is the incentive to have any loyalty to the show, right?


True. I know people like to talk about the past and how it should stay there, but when the past was so ahead of its time the present doesn't compare then whats a viewer to do. When I watched in the mid 90s there were characters who were clearly defined, and although they either regress, grow, or evolve its never to the point where you have no idea who you are looking at anymore. They did this to sharon, and it got so bad that even viewers that weren't fond of the character in the past started calling foul. Myself and many people I know who still watch were fed up with her being the scapegoat and the villain, and writing her so close to the edge ended up backfiring on the network IMO. She's just one example of taking things too far and now b/c of it there is no one who's as root worthy as they use to be.

I haven’t watched during the Shick/Shack/Phick years. What really threw me for a loop, was the way Sharon just took all of Nick/Phyllis’ BS. First of all, what wife wouldn’t be tempted to beat the he11 out of the mistress who’s sleeping with her husband? Really?!?!

We saw Dru go all into full-blown knockdown drag out mode with Neil’s mistresses. Sharon just confronted Nick & Phyllis. No real divorce. Yeah, I get it. She slept with Brad & they had a full-blown affair JUST like Phick (Even though it was a One-Night stand, it still justifies what Phick did, so because Sharon had the audacity to turn to someone else, be it wrong, she should be punished.) Brad was only marrying Victoria because of her last name, so naturally, he was a gold digger. When she found out about Shrad’s tryst, she pulled a Nick (Slept with Grace after learning about Diego affair) & slept with JT, who’s returned 10 years later & has suddenly become an abuser, buried 6 ft. Under.

Shadam - I would’ve been all for a pairing IF the whole babynapping thing hadn’t happened. Shictor? Dylan? Too bland. Scott? Too much.

I would’ve written the Summer paternity storyline differently. Nick would’ve taken some, if not all the responsibility for his 18-year lie. He kidnapped Summer from Jack (just as some feel that Sharon kidnapped Christian) because he wanted to fill the void that he felt when Cassie died. He was the one who let her go out to “The movies”. But he didn’t know that she was actually going to an party full of teenage boys/girls & alcohol.

It was really Nick’s “Bear trap Lover” that lied all the way to her death about Christian’s true paternity. Sage saw that he was the brother of Adam (who was posing as her beloved Gabriel Bingham at the time). All that was forgotten once Sharon kidnapped the son she thought was Nick’s, but is now known as Adam’s, thanks to Chelsea.

People always go into the whole, "How could Nick even look at her? She's cheated on him thoughout the marriage & screwed the whole family!" Well, so did Brooke Logan. She screwed her way through the Spencers AND Forresters Plus more men, but Ridge still loves her & they have a destiny. So, why not for Shick? If Bridge & Niktor are destined to be together, then why can't we have ours?

Then there's the anger when Sharon's fans deflect. when they do this, they're attacked for viewing her as a saint, & excusing her for her actions. They get attacked for the "But Phyllis did this & more" comments, but they sure can dflect "But Sharon" when it comes to defending Phyllis. :roll: That just goes to show you just how good Michelle Stafford & Sharon Case were together. :D They did showcase the best rivalry on screen.

I really enjoy Sharon & Gina's scenes together, especially in the "Who killed JT?" s/l.
I hope that when the JT secret is revealed, like many have said, Nick understands that she was protecting his mom & sister.


I stand by the fact that the real issue is that Nick didn't love Phyllis like he did sharon, and by nick going back to sharon time and again trivializes what Phyllis meant to him. Its still a competition, its still in that faze but I no longer care. I want Nick to be with the woman he's always loved, and I want sharon to be with the man she's always loved. The fact that its not acceptable for sharon to get her husband back, the man she has so much history with, and the man she wants is not the characters problem.
