Quote Jackie10: Hi Jackie I wanted to commend you on your faithfulness to this thread and Shadam.
Its not the Adam character that is making the ratings drop it is MM and with out him who cares about Adam. I want to see Shadam continue if they do recast but Adam returning wont make me watch the show. Shadam might but I will read recaps at first. She can stick Cham they suck.
ITA with this post. YnR has suffered a huge loss IMO when they let MM go and just like you said, it's MM not Adam is the reason for the ratings dropping. I only fell in love with the Adam character when MM came on board, before that I didn't care about Adam. I haven't watched the show on TV in years and if I want to see a scene because of what's being said on this board, I look it up on youtube, if it's not posted there, too bad, I don't watch. I refuse to tune in to the show. The blatant disregard for fan base, rewriting history and so on has given me more reasons to not tune in. I have to be honest, as much as I loved Shadam, I don't know if I want to see another round of them with someone other than MM playing the part. Maybe it's too soon, but I have no interest in these writers moving in that direction. The new Adam can go back to his so call love of his life
I've been reading some of the stuff on the board and while I can't judge the scenes about Sharon reaction to Adam's death, I can't imagine it doesn't affect her at all. I assume if she puts no stock in her feelings about him dying is because of how harsh he was to her the last bout of their relationship and really, who, except her haters can hate or blame her for that. But, I'm sure, as it comes closer to them having a funeral/memorial for him(if that happens) she will grieve for him. I'm convince, no matter how the writers rewrite Shadam history they can't erase the cheminstry/history these two share and I may be alone on this thought, but a 2 minutes relationship between him and Chelsea can't come anywhere close to what Shadam share. The only thing Chelsea has on Sharon is that she has Adam son, that's about it.
