Passions may be a little different from other soaps because of it's quirkiness, however, taking 7 years to resolve a storyline is quite another thing and is far different from other soaps. Look at the messsage board at how furious the fans are with these redundant storylines. THis is unbelievable!!! Fans have stopped watching or have greatly reduced viewing time, I've done the latter!!! THere is such a thing as "on the edge of your seat suspense and excitment", this is not it. Something is definately wrong when so many fans threaten to boycott a show. No other soap drags out storylines like Passions, I watch other soaps as well!! THe producers better take a long hard look at their head writer (Reilly, AKA, JERk) before the show is canceled. Remember, he was head writer on DOOL, they fired him and now DOOL is back on top!!!
