    Quote coffeerox: Y&R is too repetitive. They keep dragging storylines on for too long and eventually you just don't care anymore, and the writers can't resolve it because they wrote themselves into a corner (ehem, Carmine's murder).

    The dialogue is monotonous too (Victor: family, constant threats, etc, Billy: boo freakin hoo, Adam: omg I'm so emotionless look at me). The characters are so 1 dimensional it's not even funny.

    Right now, I'm really impressed by Days. I didn't like the Abigail/EJ turn but so far they've been dropping bombs, dealing with the fallout, dragging that on a little bit and then more bombs. I love it.

    Sleaze factor is also higher in Days. Right now I'm really digging Theresa and Brady. Very entertaining to watch. I think Theresa is smokin hot and love how evil she is. I love seeing Brady as a drug addict and all the crazy things he does/says.


    I don't watch Days but agree about Y&R. It's so predictable and boring. The s/l all drag on too long until who cares anymore. I enjoy any day without the stupid whining Baldwins. Summer's paternity s/l has gone on too long as well. Victor will never change. He claimed to want justice for Delia and closure for her family, especially Victoria. Now he's blackmailing Adam to have access to Connor.

    I have been watching since the very beginning and I must say, I can't remember a time when I didn't stop my life to watch other than now! What the heck is going on? This is a totally different show! Writers, go back and review the past story lines...take a lesson or else you will be the cause of killing this once wonderful show. So very sorry that Billy Miller is leaving and I do miss Michelle Stafford. But the one I miss the most is Katherine Chancellor. She was the greatest!

    Days is great right now.. I am loving the Abby EJ stuff.. that is the stuff I tune into soaps for..must see stuff.. I so cannot wait till Sami finds out.. Abby is hot for her man LOL

    Hmm, I didn't like that they made it EJ (I guess they are running out of men to pair her up with) but I'm catching up and I have to admit that scene was pretty hot lol! I'm sure this is going to be a ticking time bomb somewhere down the line.

    I agree about DAYS. I can't Teresa.

    That's too bad. With Tuesday's episode I can see Theresa hooking up with Brady. Brady doesn't know Theresa right now but once he finds that she has a stash and that they're more alike then he thinks, I think his attitudes towards her is going to change real quick!

    The show is not so much boring as it is ridiculous. I think if people are honest, and I mean people who have watched this show for twenty years or more, I do not think you can really sit and watch this program and think that it is of good quality. It is nothing but sensational, plot driven nonsense. And it has been that way for years now. That is why this show will be canceled sooner than later. I do not give a d..n if the ratings are up at the moment. That kind of storytelling drives a show to its death everytime. I take no comfort in saying that, because I love my soaps, but this goes for all tv series past or present. This show will leave the air with no dignity if they do not get someone better behind the scenes. Writers and all. This show has been a failure for years now and I do not see it happening. It has been too long.

    Great post. I agree with everything you said.. the show is ridiculous and the quality has gone way down.

    TOTALLY agree, it's so BORING that I literally have to force myself to watch. I'm only hanging onto it out of sentiment.

    I think a lot of us are watching out of sentiment and long time viewing.. the show is not interesting anymore.. it really is tired and lame and very repetitive.

    Days is much better than Y&R right now and I never thought I would say that..

    I think Y&R lost it's way after Mrs C/ JC passed away. I miss her and her advice to those in trouble. Also, the fact we have these storylines that drag on and on. There was no reason to have this Carmine murder mystery going on. No one cares who killed this sleaze and I'm glad this magician disappeared. There was no reason to kill Dee and then have the usual suspect be Adam who instead of explaining the tragic accident hides the fact what happen. It would have been more compelling if Adam had told the truth and each parent dealt with the consequences.Just a dull and boring show that I sometimes skip watchingz.
