phoenix, thanks for that well-thought out post. i agree with you about the focus on appeasing fanbases. over the last decade, i've backed just about every losing horse of a couple there was, from kate and john, to brady and nicole and shawn and mimi, but i never cared when i lost because i was still invested in the overall quality of the show, and there was always something more to keep me hooked.|
that being said, i've just been suffering from severe apathy the last two years. i find myself not caring who ej ends up with, because he's unrecognizable and unlikeable as a character. john and marlena's tension is unimportant because their story literally has no direction. it's like that storyline pops up when the front burner characters are on vacation. i love nick, but his current triangle with bitch 1 and bitch 2 is doze-worthy at best. all the other characters i care about seem only important in the context that they occasionally come on to support the so-called angst between these revolving couples. there's not a lot to like about the show right now, no matter if you're a rabid fan-girl or no.
