Quote alanadz: We have this same conversation every few years. As soon as a new writing team is here, they will get the same complaints the last 3 writing teams got.
That may be true, however, this writing team deserves every single complaint directed their way. If they can't come up with new original ideas then they are burned out and need to find something else to do. I refuse to believe there is not one single solitary writing team that could not do better job than these hacks. If these guys are not replaced, and soon, then there won't be a show to complain about, sooner rather than later. I don't believe writing for daytime is a lost art. I am convinced better writers are available. As I have said before, a three year old is more imaginative and creative.
