Geez. :drunk: Here's an idea, why not keep interesting/legacy characters played by good actors and get rid of some of the useless newbies or as you mentioned, the Llanview trio of terror who are not needed on this show. The bad decisions just keep coming and coming.

I tried to watch the show since I was not able to watch it (beyond few clips) for weeks. Honestly, the show is unwatchable. I don't see any rootable characters or couples.
- They're ruined AJ. I really liked AJ and Michael's father son dynamic but now Michael is back in Sonny's orbit.
Robin's return is ruined with this stupid baby s/l. Why can't they tell a proper story of the trauma she's faced and how that affects her.
And don't get me started on the absurdity of Dr. O becoming a CofS. And why is she supervising nurses again?
The never ending ridiculous mob war storyline. Please just kill of Sonny and stop with the mob crap.
And while we're talking about preposterous s/l, why should anyone care about little kids "love" triangle? WTF writers?
Finally, the couple I really loved are ruined beyond repear. I was really rooting for Nick and Britt, but there's no way they can recover from the final baby reveal. I just can't with the stolen embryos. So predictable, so unoriginal.
You've summed up perfectly why I'm barely hanging on! So much potential, so much disappointment. So far all of RC's "big returns" have been nothing more than a bait and switch. Laura's return was pointless, Robin's is awful and she's just a prop the RC's pet Sabrina, AJ started out good but he's been tossed under the bus, etc., etc. I also don't enjoy campy crap and they have gone overboard with the campy BS, mostly because of this god-awful Heather Weber story. And the children? Yeah, we really want to watch a bunch of 7 year-olds in a "love triangle." :facepalm:
Not to mention the awful way RC writes kids. While they are all very cute, they are all written as snotty disrespectful brats with no discipline. Emma used to be sweet, now she's got a mouth that won't kid and the adults do little to nothing about it.
It's just going to get worse. I like Sean Kanan and was happy that AJ was returning at first, but they did nothing with his character other than ruin it. I was almost happy that they were going to write AJ out so the actor could possibly go to a show that might appreciate him, but now there are rumors

How about saving some money and getting rid of the horrible Llanview three, that every one despises?
