So after five long tedious months, Diane's killer is going to be revealed....
...as Deacon Sharpe..?!? REALLY, Maria Arena Bell??? I have now officially crowned you the Dena Higley of the CBS Soap World!!
To be blatantly honest, not ONE friggin' story assembled by MAB and her fellow co-hacks have resonated with this viewer:
~ The "Sheila Carter/Sarah Smythe/Daisy/Ryder" storyline - absolute ridiculousness!! How did Ryder & Daisy come about when Sheila & Tom Fisher didn't meet until 2005?!?
~ The "Death of Skye Newman by Lethal Volcano" storyline - are we loyal viewers supposed to buy that Victor would have let his former daughter-in-law Sharon go through that horrible debacle while he stood there & saw everything that took place?? That a cell phone's memory card would still be of use even after being submerged in the park creek for months??
~ The "Colin/Genevieve/Cane" storyline - Genie Francis as the mother of a 30 year old - really?!? Cane had an evil twin brother Caleb and he was the one killed on the church step I/O Cane, yet he was the one who told Lily "I Love You" before he expired???
~ The "Ronan/Nina/Chance" storyline - this one was ripe for potential; instead, Ronan Malloy came across as a immature boor. We still never found out where he went once he got part of Chance's liver. This, along with "Is Phillip Chancellor III alive?" were complete busts and a complete waste of the talents of the lovely Tricia Cast - she deserved SO MUCH BETTER!!
These are just a few of the dull, plot-driven slow-as-slurry tales being smeared on my screen daily!! Where's the love/romance?? What happened to the beautifully crafted tales that were once told by the late Bill Bell and his writing team??? Why are once-likable characters turning into vindictive, whiny, shrill characatures???
I've invested 30-plus years in Genoa City - just because one is married to a Bell doesn't mean you have inherited any of their inherent talent!!
