Y&R has always been the exception as far as soaps go LOL (except under LML).
That show also does things no other shows don't. It has fans that expect great, intelligent drama. Plain and simple. They don't have to worry about fanbases nor do they have an incompetent buffoon of an EP. They have strong leadership and allow their writers to actually write and get their vision across. Makes a big difference when there is no interference and you can just simply write and put out good drama. No one couple has to be together. There is no expectation that you have to have only certain kinds of stories like romance, adventure, etc. That is why Y&R is so successful and why it always will be.
I'm not saying there is nothing new to be done but there isn't much and, as I said, surprises are just what are needed. That is what I mean by putting a new twist on things. If Days can toss a little of those in here, then it works out much better. They already threw in Mia and, hopefully, they will throw in some more stuff down the line. However, it's still rare for anything to surprise me. Even Y&R's stories, at their basic foundation, have been done but that is what soaps are. They have always had the same traditional ideas and themes for years and I wouldn't expect much else.
