    Quote On a Clear Day:
    Quote Homesick Cajun: Thank you MsSuperSuds for posting these week after week. I truly appreciate you. Also, always enjoy your comments and your personal take on the status quo. I like the fact you stated you were at the point of no longer really liking any of the characters. I'm glad I am not the only one who feels that way. These was a time I cared passionately, but no more. The pathetic writing has turned me off to all. This show has become a pathetic shell of the once great program it once was and a complete embarrassment for long time viewers. I am holding on for Katherine's funeral, and hoping against hope that I won't be disappointed in what JFP & Co., have in store. I am hanging on by a thread now. Friday's episode is still on my DVR not viewed. Wasn't so long ago I wouldn't dream of missing a Friday. But there it is and I truly have no desire to watch.

    Thanks again as always.


    I said the same thing a long time ago. This new regime has succeeded in making me not care much for ANY of the characters. They are slowly killing everything. I keep hoping things will turn around but instead it gets worse each week. And so many of the storylines and scenes seem senseless or fake or juvenile. Josh Morrow said in an interview that the budget is lean and they have to do everything in one take now. It sure shows.


    Hi On a Clear Day! I remember reading that a while back, but didn't remember it was you that said it! Yeah, she has succeeded in making not one single character likeable. It is impossible for me to care about the newbies and from what I read we are getting yet another one! SMH
    This cast is so bloated they can't write for the current cast and keep them interesting. The characters and story lines lack depth. I truly don't believe writing for daytime is a lost art but it is definitely lacking in this regime.

    Hi Homesick. It's like all the characters are watered down and lukewarm or out of character, and I've been beaten down so much now that I have lowered my expectations when I watch. I expect the worst and hope for the best with every show. I don't get too fired up anymore about the destruction of characters or fake unplausible scenes or storylines. Oh, another newbie...okay I'll just watch and accept the new one like a zombie. They've desensitized me! They've totally succeeded in not having me root for anyone anymore and not care who hooks up with whom. The only reason I still watch is out of habit and because I never lose hope that it will suddenly turn around and get good and I will have my old familiar friend back again. Even though I know that last bit is totally unrealistic....I still watch. I often have several episodes recorded now rather than being hungry for more and not being able to wait til the next one comes out. And the ones I do watch, I FF through much of. Darn, I sure wish they'd get their act together. A soap seems like such a simple formula to write for.

    Oh, I know! I still have Friday's on the DVR. Today I watched till Sharon took the silly tumble and then I took a nap! I would have NEVER done that prior to this regime. It is truly painful to watch anymore. It's depressing and wonder some days why I still do it. Guess, like you it's a habit after so many years. But it's a bad habit these days.
    I mean, really, how hard can it be to be creative and entertain us for five hours a week? There are 168 hours in a week. I am only asking these guys to do what they are paid to do and entertain me for five of those hours. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so.....

    I too agree but I'm not ready to give up yet. Even if the writers totally screw up the funeral s/l for Catherine (which in all likelihood will happen judging by what we've been watching) I will still keep watching, even if JFP (God forbid) is around for another year. I'll outlast this sorry excuse for a producer by sheer will and determination that she not destroy the show I loved. I only know that I want to be watching the day they boot that woman out the door so I can wave goodbye and welcome the next team on board. I can't imagine that CBS is too pleased with this nightmare that is going on now.

    We want it so badly to get good again because we watched for decades so these characters and their families and homes and offices are like familiar friends we check in with to see how they are doing. And it is a habit of many years. It's not like a show we watched for a year and then it ended. For me I look forward to turning it on for a few minutes when I eat lunch and again right before bed after all my chores, etc. I work from home, so it's a guilty pleasure I can watch in bits when I get time. And I am reluctant to give it up completely even if it continually disappoints. I guess watching the older castmates I am invested in, written badly is better than not watching them at all. Either that, or I am a glutton for punishment. But seriously, I have shreds of hope that this new team will get the boot and that keeps me going too. Many posters say to those of us who complain that the show is now subpar, that we should just not watch. They are probably right but I just want the show to be good again so badly. I only watch 2 or 3 shows on TV. I'm not a big watcher of numerous shows so maybe that is why I have trouble completely abandoning Y&R.

    Thanks Jacksmyguy! The visual of JFP being kicked out the door make me smile, big time!!!!

    I'm trying to hang in there. My biggest concern at this point is does the soap killer already have another notch carved in her six shooter. I hope not!!

    I know. I don't watch a lot of television either. Very few shows actually. I am so invested in this one. I have been watching since 2000. The few shows I do watch I want quality entertainment and that is what we once got and I still think it's possible, not with JFP, but still possible if they get someone as soon as possible!

    Count on it! There is no way this woman will keep going unchecked. She hasn't gotten away with her destructive practices anywhere else. I keep telling myself that it is just a matter of time now. It's not possible for her to take the soap that was the best on the air for years and totally destroy it in such a short time without somebody noticing, and from what I've seen there are plenty of us displeased with this regime.
