What's lower than an "F"? In 40 years I have never been driven to stop watching because I was so disgusted with the SLs. The past 4-5 years have been intolerable and I waited and waited and waited with high hopes and numerous promises that things were going to improve, that the viewers were really going to like the direction of various SLs, etc., but none of this has ever happened IMO. I don't watch much any more, but I'm assuming Chelsea's still pregnant, Dylan still thinks he's the father, Victoria and Billy are together? Split up? It's always one or the other and it happens so often it doesn't matter. Nick and Avery make it down the aisle? Doesn't matter 'cause I don't care for them. Phyllis is gone, I guess, from what I read. Summer and Kyle still trying to keep themselves apart because they are brother and sister? Or they aren't? Sharon is completely destroyed and I finally gave up on the numerous promises that her character would be redeemed and she would start being the Sharon I remember. Cane and Lily make me gag. Adam's still a star, I'm sure. Gosh, just writing about these long, overdrawn, back and forth, never ending SLs make me want to scream. I'm glad for those that feel the writing is better, but my patience is gone when it comes to the show I looked forward to 5 days a week for 40+ years.
It just frustrates me so much because, really, it doesn't take that much effort to write better SLs. I see ideas all over the boards and I have had many myself. It takes imagination and creativity and from what I've seen over the past 4-5 years, the writers and TIIC have absolutely none of either. JMHO.
