Quote Oldsoapie: I'm loving it, too. Fast moving. Good acting. Watched many soaps in my long life. Don't like it? Don't watch it. Period. Bashing writers/actors is just a textual selfie. Showing off - nothing. :(
Great post! I agree. I watch Y&R for the escape and drama. I am not a writer, but it seems like if you are writing for a soap opera, you would not write the stories as you would a real life situation. Real life can be dramatic, but usually it is slow paced and boring. So the scene with Paul, Dylan, Avery, and Austin is written with the idea of drama--not realistic police department procedures. I enjoyed the drama the scene brought. If I wanted a realistic depiction of police department protocol and procedures, I would watch a documentary.
