    I’m going to start a new trend tomorrow with the 3/7 episode of Y&R. I will be critiquing each episode here the day after it airs. I promise to say positve things as well as the negative. Get ready — it’s going to be a lol blast!!

    TimsDale, You’re always a lol blast negative or positive.

    While I tend to be very forgiving of the soaps, I DO understand your frustration on seeing a once powerhouse, groundbreaking soap reduced to less than its former greatness. I feel your pain, but appreciate what I feel is a resurgence in the genre and always hope for the best. That said, as a loooong time soap fan, I appreciate your take on its current state. I still love ’em.

    Personally, right now I think the final four are more entertaining than much of the current daytime TV offerings.

    I may not always agree with the comments here but am happy posters care enough to comment, as long as they leave the personal attacks in check. Rock on soapers.
