WORDS CAN NOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE MY ANGER WITH Y&R RIGHT NOW, AND FOREVER NOW!
I HAVE WATCHED THIS SOAP FOR WELL OVER 20 YEARS (AND I AM ONLY 29, SO YES, I WATCHED AS A LITTLE GIRL WITH MY GRANDMA AND AUNTS); I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS TYPE OF DESTRUCTION OF CHARACTERS ON ANY SOAP, EVER! I HAVE WATCHED A LOT OF SOAPS: Y&R, B&B, AS THE WORLD TURNS, GUIDING LIGHT, DAYS OF OUR LIVES, AND PASSIONS. ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME PERSONALLY KNOWS THAT I HAVE TO HAVE MY SOAPS, AND IN PARTICULAR, MY Y&R! I HAVE GIVEN UP ON A LOT OF SOAPS BUT NEVER THE #1 DAYTIME DRAMA! THEY OFTEN JOKE WITH ME ABOUT IT, BECAUSE I NEVER MISS AN EPISODE, EVER!
WELL, THEY CAN HAVE IT NOW BECAUSE I AM OFFICIALLY DONE. I TRIED SO HARD TO HOLD ON AFTER MS LEFT! I WAS, AND STILL AM SO DISAPPOINTED ABOUT MS EXIT, BECAUSE THAT WAS Y&R'S TALENT AT ITS BEST! LOVE THE CHARACTER OR HATE THE CHARACTER, NO ONE COULD TAKE AWAY THE FACT THAT MS IS AN AMAZING ACTRESS! AND I KNOW SHE MADE THE DECISION TO LEAVE ON HER OWN, BUT I BELIEVE THAT SHE HAD OUTGROWN Y&R, BECAUSE OF THEIR STUPID, JUVENILE DECISIONS! THE SOAP IS BEING DESTROYED! THE VETS DESERVE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE CRAP THAT COMES THROUGH OUR TV SCREENS 5 DAYS A WEEK!
THEN, THERE WAS NEWS OF BM LEAVING, SMH. I WAS LIKE, HERE WE GO AGAIN, THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING...BUT NEVER EVER DID I THINK MM WOULD BE NEXT!!!!!!!!
I WILL GIVE Y&R MY LAST THREE DAYS WITH MM ON THE SCREEN, AND AFTER THAT I AM OFFICIALLY DONE! THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY ARE DESTROYING THIS SOAP! I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT IT WAS POSSIBLE!I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING TO HAVE ANY OLD WRITERS BACK RIGHT NOW, EVEN THE ONE THAT PEOPLE THOUGHT WAS THE WORST. AT LEAST SHE RECOGNIZED OUR VETS, AND GOOD TALENT, AND GAVE GOOD STORYLINES! THIS SOAP IS THE WORST IT HAS EVER BEEN!!!! IT WILL NOT LAST LONG ANYMORE, CERTAINLY NOT AS #1!
I hear ya. I am 36 and have watched soaps since I was in high school. I watched Days first when Marlena got possessed. Then I watched Another World since it was on after it.
I then proceeded to slowly adopt all the others..GH, AMC, OLTL, GL, ATWT, Passions, B&B and Y&R..heck even Port Charles. I too would watch with my grandma. She was a huge AMC fan.
I am capable of being done with a soap. When Days killed off my fav Jack Deveroux...again..I was out. I had had it, and I never watched again..(even though I still love EJ).
I am just about there with Y&R. I was mad enough with BM, and this just made it worse. I can already tell where the stories will go. It will inevitably will all be about Dylan. The same happened with GH and Jason. Jason was all over the screen all the time. Jason bit the big one over there and it has been great since he left.
