Here’s what I’d like to see happen for the big CBS soaps in 2009:
The YnR – Stay consisent! The writing is sharp, clear, attentive to detail and respectful of the show’s history (post Victor and Sabrina). Three small matters: Bring back Dru, Get rid of Lily – who is an energy drain on every other character (or bring back Davetta Sherwood in the role), and please don’t compromise Michael’s hard won integrity for Gloria’s sake.
The BnB – There are only so many ways of saying that Rick/Steffy and Eric/Donna are utterly disgusting. I’m hoping that both are done in early ’09. Where the writers should focus is on Thorne. Eric will be shocked that Thorne is tired of playing second fiddle? How???? How many times has this storyline played out? Where’s the shock?
If Thorne is planning to join Jackie M. as he did with Spectra…YAWN!!!! We’ve been down that road, already. Not again… While Ridge is having his breakdown, cheesy Eric is sexing up his cheap bride, and Rick is feeling up his own niece – Let Thorne and Felicia engineer a slick takeover of Forrester creations and KEEP control of the company- making it successful. Let there be tension between the two when Felicia falls for JM’s new head designer.
Let Bridget find REAL love with Owen as a jealous Nick works to unearth Owen’s dirty secrets. Let Nick cross the line in a big way.
As for Marcus, why not make an unseen Baker son his father – someone Donna secretly dated so that the Baker men weren’t able to put it all together ? What if Donna was still in love with him? The Bakers have a long history with the Forresters and could become a new core Family. Eric would lose Donna to NuBaker. Marcus would have an honorable family to get to know. REAL diversity on the show. Btw, Marcus’ dad ends up in town as an FBI agent, investigating Nick’s shady business dealings.
Pam? NO to more long lost children…especially one who ups the pseudo-incest factor. Owen Douglas? Oh dear soapgod…NO! NO! NO! NO!!!!!!!</p
