Y&R: MAB - better or worse than LML?
It shocks me up to this day that Y&R is still getting the positive feedback when it's been unwatchable for me for several months. Let's face it - aside from the Katherine/Marge storyline, has there been once successful storyline ever since?
So what do you think, is MAB worse than the plague LML unleashed on the show, or is she better?
For me, personally, Y&R situation is quite similar to AMC's... just when you think it might get better with a new HW (McTavish/Esensten/Pratt) it only gets worse... Pretty much every single character on the show is being used as a puppet to drive plot. The last few months have been pure plot. So how come there is so much positivity left when things are only getting worse?
The wreck that is Sheffer has completely turned this show around... hasn't anyone noticed how weak the women are? Sharon is constantly being violated by the men in her life and she's currently in the worst storyline yet... with Adam (the man who stole her baby) falling in love her. Phyllis is depending on Nick and his *tool* and is no longer the Phyllis we knew. Ashley has completely lost her mind and we all know what is going to happen once she learns Faith isn't hers. Lauren is only propping the crime-family.
And the storylines... River Baldwin? Kevin the Chipmunk? Mac the Mute? The Terroni? Adam the "blind-when-I-want-to-be" gaslighter? Colleen drowning only a couple of months after her father did the same way, and then letting her heart to the man that tried to destroy her just a few days ago? Adam using Sharon? Patty being destroyed only because the writers want their "shock of the month"? Another doppleganger story (Jeffrey Bardwell, Ines Vargas, Alistair Wallingford, Marge Cotrooke, Emily Peterson)?
Sorry for getting so detailed... but I want to see change on this show. I still hate both LML's version and Maria's.
