Quote KatyDidNot: I for one think the writing has improved greatly and I can truly say that I am enjoying the drama more so than I have in a long while. Les Moonves stated in a recent interview that B&B and Y&R are quite profitable and are not in danger of being cancelled. Great news IMO for those of us who are still fans.
that's really cool for you but most of the people in this thread still hate the show and we are entitled to that!
Of course you are, my post did not imply otherwise. I only try to speak for myself (as is indicated by the statement "I for one") and I make no apologies for enjoying a show I like so many others have watched since its inception. I have been unhappy more often than not with what the writers have done with my favorite characters especially Hope but I do understand that that is what soaps are all about.
No. that is NOT what soaps are all about. A better soap might have over the top crazy stuff happen to and be done by the characters, but they justify it and at the least make it interesting. If you like Hope so much, you should wish better writing for her. Think how little her character or storyline has changed in the last few years. All we ever see her doing is talking about boys. First Oliver, then Liam, then Oliver then Liam and now Wyatt AND Liam. At one point she did have a fashion line (though I don't know what she actually CONTRIBUTED to it), but she's not even seen doing that anymore.
Write these characters to have actual LIVES outside of who they are schtupping or want to schtup, or who they will get engaged to/marry this week!
