Forty Fads I’d Like To See Again

Today’s episode of “The Young and the Restless” is a throwback.  The show often plays so-called “classic” episodes on American holidays.  I caught a couple minutes of it yesterday (it airs a day earlier in Canada than it does in the U.S.), and it made me long for the day when glamour used to be a part of daytime TV.

Soaps are terrible right now.  Y&R executive producer Jill Farren Phelps has turned Genoa City into a low-budget wasteland, populated by dull, uninteresting people who wouldn’t know glamour if it shot them dead while wearing a fabulous wedding dress.  “Days of Our Lives” is marginally better because it’s retained its campy sense of humor, but the rest are just sad.

I hate to hear people claiming that daytime drama is a dying genre.  If something doesn’t work, just f***ing fix it, already.  And whatever you do, don’t replace it with another show where a panel of women complain that things don’t work.

Bring back soaps!
