Quote JBlair: These story lines are repeats after repeats. They just change the faces. The writers have no imagination.
Quote Kelly777: I didn't watch during Lathem so I can't comment on that but I did watch during MAB's time and she needed to go. Chipmunks, Crazy Annie, Clint......She just spent too much time away from the show and let the inmates get away with murder and nothing was going to change because she thought she was immune because she is a Bell by marriage. I'm still glad she isn't at the show anymore. Things were on a downward spiral with her too.
But enter JFP. We were told time and again from the moment this woman was hired how it would go and sure enough NONE of them have been wrong. I received a DM the DAY she was hired saying that she was going to wreck the popular couples and for me that meant Villy. No matter what you think of them they did have a large fanbase and were voted the #1 couple on the CBS site beating out Nictor. She has succeeded in ripping them to smithereens. I do not know of one rootable couple that is still on canvas.
Killing Delia brought them Emmy's but that's temporary. Most all of the actors that brought the storyline for her and netted her an Emmy are gone now and she hardly ever utilizes the vets unless it is to prop another character that is considered FOJ. With what she has going I doubt very seriously she will get another Emmy even if they paid the Judges. LOL
I don't know what happened with MM but I do know the show dumped 1.5 million viewers after he and Billy Miller left. Great Executive's have a way of playing this out and not underhandedly whereby there is an amicable departure. It is so evident that he is missed (whether you like him or not)because they cannot find the "right" actor to play Adam. (Wish they would have devoted as much time trying to find the Billy Abbott recast)
In her arrogance she screwed around with BM's contract not allowing HIM outs when the rest of the cast enjoyed them and now she has succeeded in burning that bridge by offering him an equally offensive contract to come back.
I just wish TPTB would realize she is feathering her own nest and is not acting for the better good of the show. She really needs to go.
Quote Dexter Fan: I agree!But,seeing GH too how Michelle Stafford is vaulting out of her wheelchair and paying everyone off in sight,isn't great soap opera either!She's now a much meaner version of Phyllis on GH!!I wish she'd just come back as Phyllis,only toned down a bit.I also liked MAB's s/l's more than JFP's.Her last good story was Sam and Sharon,and it got ruined because they dragged Sharon off to rot in jail.I hated that,as much as Sam leaving before Halloween that year.I wish he'd just come back,as I don't like Sharon with Nick anymore.I also hate this stupid Mariah story.I can only see it heading where Nick makes a play for her.I hope not,but it's awful.Are we supposed to care for poor little Mariah because she's poor?Get over it already!I hate JFP's stories,and the writers don't know how to write a beginning,middle and end if their lives depended on it.Time for some new people.Is Ed Scott beginning,or is it just a rumor?
