    rant of the day/ reality of the soaps

    Hello, I'm here to let out a rant. Reality CHeck Folks.

    On aleast half dozen threads, I've been hearing, "If the show doesn't maek Summer Jack's daughter I'll stop watching," or "If Gloria doesn't get caught soon, I'll stop watching" Believe me I was oen of them, but yet I'm still a viewer. Is it rage, or is it instinct. WHy do we make open threats. The writer knows that we won't do it. I now people who stay true to their word and then their us who don't. Example is Summer's paternity. Some want it to be Nick's while some want it to be Jacks. me personaly want it to be Nicks. THey made it that way, and I hate when soaps change apternity, on every freeken child born on the hsow. pretty soon Fen will turn out to be Paul's son and not Michaels. the question is, what will we the viewrs do?, will we let these writers walk all over us, creating a wall of storylins that make us wanna scream. ethier way someone is going to be upset. Instead of hsowing anger, sit back and enjoy the show.

    Thanks folks for listening to my rant,a nd ahve a great day

    Did you ever think those posters were ranting when they posted those types of posts?!

    :shrugging shoulders: Not sure? Maybe it's easier to complain then do something?
    I've REALLY tried to not "complain" about the crap you have no control over.....I said tried.

    It's all just fiction! I have been a viewer since day one, get upset with s/l but always get sucked back in!

    I get very upset with the dopey storylines sometimes and just groan and bang my head at some of this stuff, but I still come back hoping it will begin to make sense someday! And, I love the character's and the acting (altho, they have changed the character's personalities to the point where some of them are unrecognizible). I don't think I'd stop watching unless they feature the character of Phyllis even more than they do now. That's where I think I'd draw the line!!

    Have to disagree with you about Phyllis. She makes the show interesting. She and Nick are great together.

    Not for me - obviously. Anymore Phyllis screen time would drive me up the wall. More Phyllis means less for many of the others I like!!

    Why is it that no one likes Phyllis?

    I think a lot of people like Phyllis. I like Phyllis to a point, but like I said, I think alot of people feel that in order to feature Phyllis so much, many of the other charcters and S/L are pushed to the back burner, mostly the Veteran characters.
