Add Chuck Pratt to that list also, except for "Melrose Place," which was the only halfway decent thing he has ever been responsible for, writing-wise!!!

Sarah/Daisy is quite possibly the worst storyline in Y&R history.

Melrose Place

Season 1 was so cliche. We had stupid movie of the week style episodes.
Season 2 & 3 were amazing.
Season 4 had it's good and bad parts.
Season 5 was pretty average to bad.
Season 6 was HORRIBLE.
Season 7 was a bit better but still pretty bad.

I'd say the 2nd half of the first season of Melrose improved immensely, when they started having continuing storyline with Alison/Billy/Amanda, and later Jake/Jo and Jane/Michael/Kimberly.

I agree with your breakdown of the other seasons of Melrose. Season 4 was mostly good but started going over-the-top towards the last couple episodes when they gave Kimberly a split-personality and she locked up Peter in the looney bin. Jo's send-off with Dominick O'Malley was also a bore, and putting Alison with Jake sucked the life out of both of them.

Season 5 was definitely the biggest transition from good to bad. Really bad.


Back to the main topic of worst short-lived characters:
DAYS' Dr. Alex North, Willow the hooker, the 2 Tinda Lau islanders with Belle & Shawn... basically all short-lived characters around 2007. And don't forget that awful China Lee (I think that was her name) who saddled Nick Fallon with her two rugrats for a while. Talk about a random storyline!

Rick from Another World. he was so skeezy and triggering. The way he could basically sexually assault and stalk women(Jenna) with a smile on his face. UGH. Makes me want to take a cold shower or five. Also,does Olivia count? I dont know how long she stayed,but Im sure it was too long. I could not deal with her screeching about Aunt Liz and I DESPISED the way she said Sam's name. Hated everything about her. Probably most annoying AW character ever. Also was not too fond of Kathleen. Or Kelsey. But at least Kelsey distracted John long enough to make him lose interest in Frankie. That storyline was a bit creepy to me.
