To me there is a big difference from saving one's own ass and another just sounding fucking stupid when Ed Scott says that Higley has written some of the best material he has ever read or seen, that's just bullshit on so many levels and has made me lose respect for Ed Scott.

I don't care if Higley or Corday are assholes behind the scenes, I just want my favorite soap to be good on a consistent basis. Is that too much to ask?
I take what he said to go along with what I have said for awhile now about the hacks writing daytime these days.

They are only temporarily good - Hogan, Kreizman, McTavish, Passanante, Higley and all.

notice Scott said "scenes" - not stories or whatever.

All these writers are only good in the short term - none of them have the talent to carry anything over for a long term like the writers who wrote daytime for years.

From watching Higley at OLTL, she would come up with some brilliant stuff but never sustain it.

The Daniel Colson stuff was magnificent. The initial Tess storyline was great. The Kevin and Kelly breakup stuff was great.

She could write and come up with some great stuff in the short term, but she never knew how to keep the stuff going and maintain. The same can be said for Hogan, Megan McTavish and all of the hacks.

The have some great ideas from time to time and come up with a few things here and there that are top quality and entertaining.

That is what makes me so mad about them is that you know when they try they can do it. The sad fact is that they don't try. They don't put their all into it.

I think that is what Ed Scott was saying. Higley can do some good stuff from time to time. It is just in the long term that she has a big problem with.
