Will no longer be watching

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe in this world. I have to say I’ve been a fan and faith watcher of this show from day one. However, that ends today. I can no longer stomach this show. It’s even hard to read the recaps. This show has sunk to a new time low with the ED storyline and the Logan sisters. I will find something better to do than to watch this. Anyone else feel this way?

Hi Stacey451, yes I do feel the way you do, I barely ever watch the show. For a long period I didn’t even read the recaps. The reason I come here to the message board is to post with my fellow posters and voice my opinion to Bell. I know Bell doesn’t read these posts, or he would of dropped this stupid ED story. Sometimes a break is a good thing, because if you do come back, it’s very easy to catch up on the show. Still it’s very sad you are leaving, especially since you supported this show from day one. I hope to see you back on the board in the future. :slightly_smiling_face:

I quit watching a few weeks ago. Can’t stand this awful ED storyline and wishing it would go away.

When I watch, it’s accidental. I just love the board and the posters. The ideas on this board are more original and clever than anything the lesser Bell can produce.

I’m with you on that! This show is hard for me to watch and have been feeling this way for a long time. I stopped watching for a while and would read the board because it’s much more interesting reading everyone’s thoughts. I watched yesterday and Monday’s show hoping things would get better. Well stupid me!:face_with_raised_eyebrow:

You can only be disappointed so many times. What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing repeatedly expecting a different result.
Frankly, I’m not sure a change of writers would fix this. They had MAB on Y&R for a few years and she totally destroyed the show. They are still trying to fix her messes.
I see on the other boards the posters complaining about the writing for each show. I don’t agree with some of them because I still watch the other soaps. GH daily, Days and YR when the storylines are popping or to see a character who has been off the show for awhile.
I love to pop on a soap when I get home from work. It’s my way of relaxing.

Stacey451 you’re not alone. I too has watched this show since day one and I stopped last year. I do not miss it at all. I come here to banter with my cyber friends and it’s more fun than watching the show.

Whenever you start watching again just keep your expectations very very low so that you wouldn’t get disappointed again.

Taking a break from watching has healing value. A long time ago, I was in the habit of hoping for improvement and my body got tight and the mind was bent, pushed, rolled, turned, and twisted. Thing is, I had to learn to be a passive watcher. Now, I don’t try to self-direct the episodes so much; what helps that is to ultimately give in to the quest that the writers are mastered in brain-locking a storyline.

I do agree with the others ahead of me, and I hope for you a definite improvement. Come back when you feel like it. Best to you!

Hey there! Yes, I feel the exact same way. I can’t even read the recaps anymore. I’m barely hanging in with YandR but I’m done w/B&B. Same stuff different day.

I don’t watch anymore. I come to the board to see what is going on and hope maybe something has changed. But this show is ridiculous, it should be off the air, if the writing doesn’t change.

Although I do not want the actors to be out of a job but I am truly surprised the show’s sponsors are still shelling out money for it.

I like to watch before bed helps be wined down. I know BB can be ridiculously at times. Its no more ridiculously than regular tv.

I usually watch the cooking channel or a home improvement show before bed. I believe that viewing creativity before sleep helps to create more vivid dreams, even if I can’t remember them. :grinning:

I keep saying I’m going to stop watching. Deacon and Sheila had better kill someone soon or else I’m done. :laughing: :laughing:

I have Ben deleting all the BB shows this week and last without even viewing them. Why? I don’t want to see Brooke go on and on about Donna being with Eric and kicking Quinn out. I don’t want to hear Katie and Donna go on and on about Eric’s sex life and I sure as h don’t want to hear Liam and Steffy giving ultimatums to Hope and Finn on the most ridiculous storyline. I was so thrilled to see Alley aka Pam back on the show but couldn’t watch the scenes because it was Brooke going on and on about Quinn. I used to like Brooke but now I can’t stand her. So I have joined the ranks of most of all the posters are here. How they all live in glass houses on BB.

I completely understand. Years ago I also enjoyed the character Brooke. But, now, there is no part of me that can stand any part of her. Sheila, Brooke, Donna, and Katie are the reason I am currently tuned out. I’m trying to wait until they are not the show’s daily repetitive presentation. When I decide to check in on Lope/Sinn/Deacon and the Logans are also featured, I hit the FF key through the Logan drama. I FF Sheila a lot as well… less now that Deacon is with her.

I also need to delete a bunch of unwatched episodes.

I can’t imagine that John M. likes this too much either. I hope they are paying him a LOT of money. I cringe for him with these silly, (not funny) storylines with his thing only working around Donna. And then him running home to jump Quinn. It’s AWFUL!

Since Bell & the writers don’t seem to care about the show’s content, etc., has anyone ever emailed CBS? It may be Bell’s show, but CBS carries it on their network. They may not be too happy to find out what’s going on. Just a suggestion. I actually don’t care enough to contact them; between the ED story & Sheila returning, it’s mostly unwatchable. At first the ED sl was funny; now it’s just sad. No offense to the actress, but Sheila isn’t a love to hate villain to me;she’s just loathe to hate. This sl also sucks because you know that she’ll probably break up Finn & Steffy (could care less about Hope & Liam). Paris being the “end all, be all” is gag-worthy. Liked her in the beginning, but now she makes me cringe too. Liked Thomas, but he seems to always want someone else’s SO. Why can’t he find someone on his own? Guess they don’t want to pay another actress. Read that Taylor is returning - different actress. That may be a plus.

I’ve posted at least half a dozen times that I want Shelia to go on a killing spree. Start with Steffy. Then the Logan’s. Then the rest of the foresters.
