So, the big issues appear to be Safe, Dannifer, and Melanie? We know that Melanie is leaving (thank the gods), so that's one problem solved. I'm not thrilled with Dannifer, but it's got two things going for it right now -- manipulative Nicole and potentially crazy Jennifer. I have a hunch there is something fairly explosive coming out of those two things.

As for Safe, I honestly don't care. I don't care who Sami ends up with. I'd prefer it not be EJ because I'd rather see him be sweevil and snarky then a lovesick puppy. But whether it's Rafe or Lucas, it's all the same stuff to me -- generally fastforwardable unless there are some interesting interactions going on.

So, like Matt and Tim, I think the show is better. I think the character interactions are miles better, the dialogue is even-handed and true to the characters. The stories appear to be building to something. Will and Sonny are actually getting the slow build treatment. Some of the characters I just don't care about much anymore, but at least their stories appear to be going somewhere. And we know there is a storyline coming up for J&M with Kristen's return. It wouldn't surprise me if the lack of seeing them right now is because they are saving up episodes for the fall. I'm also looking forward to Eric's return.
I actually agree with most of this (except I obviously still care who Sami loves, which pretty much makes me an idiot). Anyway, the problem thus far is about 2/3rds of the shows for the last month have been filled with the MelaME, Dannifer and Safe stories I hate. Maybe in another month or two once Kristen and Jarlena's story gets going and Eric returns, I will feel differently about storyline direction. I hope so because, like I said earlier, I think LB and the script writers are doing a good job with the individual episodes. If we could start to get good overall stories along with those episodes, then I'm good.
