..the 'Sarah Smyth' bullshit was put together in a hurry because they couldn't get KB to return as Sheila, and even IF Sheila returned it still would of ended up being shit because there was no lead up to any of those events. A 10 year old could write better fan fiction then that

You all are laying it on a bit thick with the praise of the writing and production. I give it 2 months before you're calling for the removal of the new team.
I think most of us are just happy to have 2 people who know how to do their job. Jill has been a producer for years, and Josh has been writing for years also. We aren't loving everything they have been doing so far but its definitely an upgrade. MAB was a ditz, someones trophy wife with absolutely no talent when it comes to soap writing or producing, she just inherited Bell's legacy
In fairness, MAB is a novelist first and foremost. Perhaps she wasn't the absolute best in the role of Head Writer, but she certainly provided some of the most memorable and entertaining stories of the past few years. Seeing Lauren tortured by the infinitely superior Sarah was the highlight of last year. And let's not forget Paul coming face to face with Patty and having a breakdown that should have won him an Emmy. Just to name 2 great examples!
