Why am I not surprised?  For most viewers, Soaps used to be an escape from reality.  Soaps were supposed to be entertaining.  Some sappy drama, some romance, some family conflicts, some love-in-the-afternoon.  But look at what is happening the past few years:  Instead of sappy drama, mobsters/serial killers/psychopaths are glorified, romance has been replaced by crude, cheap sex scenes and very unappealing dialogs (example- JR/Amanda), family conflicts are replaced by sci-fi-WTUAFetusboy, and, FORGIVENESS for those who kidnap/hurt/maim your children (Jonboy gets the bad cutout and gets rewarded by marrying Lily, Babe and Kwak are "love" after keeping Miranda for so long, Joonyer gets off after trying to kill Babe so many times, and almost killing Kendall/Spike in the process, and I better not even start on the current Bitchlee s/l!), and love-in-the-afternoon?  The only couple that anyone is interested in seeing never gets any!  Yeah, it is mentioned, but not seen! 

I am hoping against hopes that the writers will realize that glorifying criminals is not acceptable to majority of the viewers.  Why such obsession about redeeming criminals?  Why limit s/l to half a dozen characters, thus forcing to recycle unrealistic relationships?   Please, PLEASE, stop this train wreck before it is too late!  

When WILL TIIC realize that the only reason there is ANY audience left is because of extremely talented ACTORS on this show, like TK, AM, SL, DC?  The show is not ENTERTAINMENT anymore, it leaves me angry and frustrated more often than not.  Defeats the purpose of watching, doesn't it?  But, I will continue watching, for the only pleasure the show provides:  TK on my screen!

Searose, I wholeheartedly agree.  There seems to be some challenge amongst the writers to see how vile and despicable they can make a character and then see how long it takes for redemption and to make the viewers accept them as a noble upstanding character.  It's time they turn the challenge from their own egos and write for what the viewers want to see.  We want to have a good story.  Period.  Outrageous and extreme events have a place also, but only in limited doses.  Shock value overdone amounts to electrocution.  If we want to see sadistic people, rape, tortcher, kidnappings, murderers going free, fires, explosions - we'll watch the news.  When we want to escape the sadness and the disappointment of the mess we've made of our world, we want to turn on a soap.  I want to laugh with Tad, lust after Zach, shake my finger at Ryan, roll my eyes at Adam, find out where Kendall got that dress and get my hair cut like Erica.  Please.  I can be sad and frustrated without any help from a soap.

I hate to say I told you so to TPTB, but hey, we did! We've been trying to tell them what to fix for a long time & they're not listening, but they need to
know the fans aren't either!  GB the Green Monster who ate PV is IMO the big reason for this downturn.

Captivated, don't apologize. Your rhyme is adorable, funny and so true. The click, click, click part is the sound of the Greenlee redemption bus going down the drain.

The ratings of the show go down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
The ratings of the show go down, down, down
Down the ratings drain

According to Cady's website, she has been let go at ATWT.  Do you suppose she will become one of the undead?  Sometimes the old magic just can't be recreated when a character is brought back, but it would be a good faith effort on behalf of TIIC to give closure to a very beloved story line and go forward with a new one if necessary.  I also really like Brooke and think if they would bring her back and integrate her into a good story that viewers will give AMC a chance to redeem themselves.  They sure as hell expect us to accept redemption from thoughtless jerks, it's time to put their egos aside and practice what they preach.

I hope that they never bring Dixie back again. I hated the character from the beginning, and that hatred only intensified when they brought her back the last time.  She sucks the life out of the show, and we already have too many characters doing that.
Brooke was collateral damage from the last time they resurrected Dixie, as was David Hayward.  VI seems to be doing well on Y&R, but Julia Barr is not doing anything as far as I know.  I would love to have Brooke back and that would be money well spent.
