    Even though ATWT gave us the wonderful story of Luke and Reid, i wouldn’t give them an award because of the horribly rushed way they ended the show and giving Luke and Reid the worst ending ever!

    Brad bell and B&B’s writers were ignored. YAY! B&B is a mess. That show should have the most developed characters bec Brad bell has been the same headwriter for b&B for centuries. The chars should be so consistently written since, unlike other soaps, B&B doesn’t experience writing upheavals every so often. Other soaps have new headwriters bringing in their differing ideas of who the chars are on a regular basis. While B&B has the advantage of having the same headwriter and a rather consistent writing team. Yet it’s a plot driven mess of a soap. The personalities of the chars change based on what the storylines dictate. The writers have no idea what to do w/ this soap. Majority of the chars, namely Amber, Aggie, Liam, Bill, Katie, Donna, Marcus, Whip, Bridget, Rick, Thorne, Steffy and Thomas are useless or boring or awful or ruined by bad writing or portrayed by terrible actors or all of the above. All the storylines are pathetic.

    I’ve been watching B&B once in awhile since ATWT went off the air.there is no comparison between these two soaps.ATWT was so much better.it had so much heart and soul.Even though the ending of ATWT broke the hearts of the fans by the horrible ending.i don’t know why B&B can’t write stories so you actually care about the characters.And is it me or did the once really beautiful Hunter Tylo ruin her lips ?She should go back to the old Hunter because she doesn’t look good with those lips and those huge breasts!Sad!!!!
