Her idiotic doppelgängers. As though Michael wouldn't recognize the fake Lauren in bed.
Patty coloring Emily's hair in jail. Why didn't she just color her own hair brown? So many stupid things, let us not forget. We need storylines that are believable.
And how about blind Adam. Whatever happened to Daisy?

Quote TreeBuild: From the posts I just read, it seems that the only problems revolved around Sharon and Adam. Was that really such a big deal?

Ok, we had to watch a lot of Phyllis with MAB.
Now, we have to watch a lot of Avery with JFP.
See, no real change there.



True, there is no change.
The Adam and Sharon thing would not have been a big deal if MAB had not had Adam stealing Faith and lying about it. It just really turned me off, not from Adam but definitely from Shadam. I dont see myself ever being able to root for them nor can I root for Sharon as she is now. The writers have not fixed her. I thought her illness was the reason she was clinging to Adam, but she is medicated and still sniffing behind after him.

Also, I am sick to death of Avery being on EVERY Dang DAY! Id rather see Phyllis every day.. At least she is a vet.

I was glad that MAB was fired but I dont really like the new writers either. I guess there is good and bad with whoever is in charge

Two things MAB did wrong......

CHADAM AND SHICTOR

No need for the character Chelsea, and Victor should retire or be recurring like Katherine.

CHADAM WAS A MONUMENTAL BORE!

SHICTOR WAS JUST PLAIN NASTY.

Quote LucyT: shictor!!!!!!!!!!!!I HATED THEM !OH and I hate Chelsea but I am not sure MAB is to blame for that mess ~)


Shictor was the worst. Never like Chelsea from the beginning and the making of Chadam, that was all MAB. Don't really know what she was thinking or lack of.

The only good thing to ever come from MAB and co. is the hiring of MM and the pairing of Shadam. JMO

1) The horrible murder mystery with Diane!I was excited that we might have a good mystery at the start!But,it all turned out to be a monumental bore,and sacrificed a really good actress!!Maura West really deserved better!!
2) The Sharon/Victor pairing!!Need I say more?It was thankfully very short!
3) Her constant trying to get Adam and Sharon back together!!I just wanted that to end too!I wanted to see her with Sam,somebody nice for a change,and new,like Sam was!!I just cringed when she kept saying "We're just friends",to him!!She wouldn't allow herself to open up enough to this great-looking and nice man!!How I hated when they shipped him back to NM 7 months later!!I am still waiting that there will be a day Sam comes back to see Sharon!!
4) Having Phyllis on every day,and killing off Tim.That was also very bad!!

It so funny how everyone thought MAB was the greatest thing since sliced spread. She is a Bell, she will do this, she will do that. It didn't happen.

At least all of MAB's storylines were jaw dropping, suspenseful, left you wanting to watch more, it was like a very good movie not some silly/annoying cheesy soap about all these love triangles.

What suspenseful, make you wanna come back and watch everyday storylines have the new writers given us? None! I could careless if I watch, I have actually stopped watching recently for the first time in Years. My day would revolved around watching y&r or catching up if I had to miss a show, now I am purposely not eating because it is so boring.

I think it really was a big deal. Having Adam burn a fetus, cause someone to lose her baby, kidnap another baby, then have the woman whose baby he kidnapped sleep with him, even after finding out what he had done is a big deal to me. Imho, she made Adam unredeemable to some of us by all the satanic things she had him do, and destroyed Sharon by having her take him back after she learned what he had done, even abandoning her child and chosing Adam over Faith. Furthermore, she had Sharon depend on Adam, and even take him back after he pulled that stunt in the prison. All those things are big deals to me.


AGREE!!!

And many more.

RC made GH a huge success by exploring the history.
JFP is going to kill the show if she continues to add new characters and forget the past.





Perfect Points!! AGREE!!!!!!!!!

MAB made us want to watch the show every day. So much happened in each episode. Now you can miss a few episodes without missing something important on the story lines.

The only good thing that happened since JFP is putting Tracey on contract.


(I admit that she added a lot of crazy things to the show but she added these crazy things to the show's history and that is the key.)


My problems with MAB (thse may have already been posted but haven't read through the thread):
1. Adam gas lighting Ashley
2. Adam burning the fetus in the fireplace
3. Adam causing Ashley to lose his brother or sister
4. Adam kidnapping Faith and letting Shick think she was dead
5. We never found out who killed Hightower
6. Sharon taking Adam back, even after she knew that Adam had kidnapped Faith
7. Sharon sleeping with Adam after she found out he had kidnapped Faith
8. Shictor
9. Shadam post the truth coming out
10. Shadam pre truth coming out.




All of this not to mention there was no balance. I love Phyllis, Sharon, and Victor but, I don't want to see them every damn day.

-Winters Wednesdays
-Likey was hardly on
-Michael was reduced to Victor's lacky
-When old stories were revisited they were botched see the Ronan debacle we were cheated out of an actual story of Nina and Ronan. See the hit and run debacle

-The stupid mob story
-Bad dialogue
-People acting out of character
-Dianne's murder
-The mistreatment of soap stars from other shows see the miscasting of Dianne and the disrespect Maura West was shown, Genie Francis, Tristan Rogers, Debbie Morgan ect.


Great points!

Quote Kelby: Many things were wrong with her. She had some good story ideas, but could never deliver worth a s..t! Nina's stolen baby found could have been good, if some competent writers had been behind it. Perhaps Bill Bell. Unless you were watching this show in the 70s through the 90s, I do not believe you have really seen good Y&R. It has been a s..t show for years now.


You hit the nail on the head!!! AGREE!
