28 October 2013 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I can't believe how bad this is. I've only been tuning in about twice a week for about four months. I find the writing predictable and the characters annoying. It's almost as if someone decided to try to come up with the worst soap ever. Well, they succeeded. Wait - I think the ill - fated Passions might have been a tie, but that at least was funny. This is like soap opera 101, maybe geared to the junior high crowd. The men are all controlling and the women are like characters from the 1950s.

I'm sad to see Jacob Young here. I was a big fan of All My Children, we all know what's happening with that. AMC was everything that this is not; it had great writing, it was classy and the actors made the characters come alive.

Also I'm surprised that Bell also produces Young and the Restless, which is far superior to this drivel.
