JM's Opinion
Writing – What Can We Expect Next?
August 10, 2006

After what I thought was a relatively clever, new and creative storyline regarding Brad’s past, the writing staff have once again disappointed me. How on earth do they expect viewers to believe that Victoria, who did a little art while she was in Europe for a year, have the talent to recreate, and therefore fool these art experts on one of the most sought after pieces in art and reliquary history?

First of all, what store did she go to in order to find these reliquary materials? She went out and came back with everything she needed, and pretty fast I might add. She did all this in a foreign town that she knows nothing about? Give me a break.

Secondly, these guys that are after the piece are art experts. If we are expected to believe that Victoria’s reliquary is going to pass off as the ultimate thing that saves Sharon, these writers will lose all credibility in my books. After such a creative storyline, they better not end it with this. That is once again, a classic lazy escape out of the mess they created.

This recent turn of events really makes me question the quality of storylines we are going to see with this new writing staff. Ever since Lynn Marie Latham joined The Young and the Restless, we’ve suddenly seen veteran writers like Jim Houghton get dismissed in favor of writers who wrote for other, less successful soaps. In a snap of a few fingers we now have a writing staff that includes several former Port Charles writers, one former One Life to Live writer, and another former Days of our Lives writer. I’m sorry but if I’m not mistaken, Port Charles got cancelled, OLTL has never been anything to brag about, and Days lost their credibility after the “Marlena is possessed by the devil” storyline. So my question is, why are they bringing these people in?  And why are we now watching such bad stories like Victoria saving the day, and Daniel and Lily pondering their marriage?

The opinions in these articles are those of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of The TV MegaSite or its other volunteers.
