Quote PurrrrrrrKitty: I agree, the Winters family needs to stay.. but needs a revamp... Leslie and Tyler has not done the trick so far.. but maybe they will.. The writers CANNOT spend their entire time on this family... They are trying to revamp this entire soap.. redeam characters that MAB totally ruined.. and replace worn out sets..
They are trying to write for the Vets, set up a foundation for the 2nd generation to take over... while trying to create new characters who blend with established characters.... some of it has worked.. some of it has not.. Yesss, they are professional writers.. but this takes time.. they cannot wave a magic wand and change everything over night.
I am patient and willing to wait.. I waded thorugh garbage for years with the previous writers, so I am more than willing to give this new team a chance..7 months is not long enough to make a significant change..
The young viewers hate Victor .. want him gone.. while the long time viewers love him.. the young viewers want it to move faster.. want hot sex.. fights and violence.. the long time viewers want romance and character driven soap, which is SLOW. We are talking about two different request..
The writers cannot make everyone happy!!!! I see them trying to hit the middle ground..
OMG, thank you :D I wrote a post similar to this in the Lily appreciation thread. People tend to want things to happen on their time. The show is watchable as long as it's going the way they want it to, and it's simply not possible. I haven't watched Y&R this much in years, and I'm happy with what they've given me so far. 3)
And no, the Winters family is here to stay.
