According to the ratings, many fans have stopped watching. If you are one of those who have stopped, what was the reason(s)?
I'm not a fan of the "core" or "vet" mentality. Just give me talent plain and simple. It's sad that the writers are given crap for the sl. The actors are also at fault. They have a job to do, just do it. Some need to take acting lessons and it shows. There are other shows that have that are more appealing, due to the fact they put talent before characters.
To put it simply the show is unrecognizable now. The long time characters are a shell of their former selves, the new characters are dull, boring and have nothing to offer, and the writing until fairly recently has been lazy and lacking.
I'm a returning viewer who left during Higiley's disasterous reign.I'm really loving it right now. Although, I'm a bit tired of Starr and her "I can't live withour Cole". If Cole were the tiniest bit enjoyable I might understand it but she's willing to throw her family away for nada.
Not yet, but close to stop watching. Characters I've watched for years are doing and saying things they never would have before.
Well initially I had stopped when they broke JOVAN up. Then I came back and fell in line with CRAVE. After their split I left for good. I occasionally visit the threads to see if Evangeline is back.
I stopped watching regularly when Todd and Tea left together in 2000 and I agree with you. Characters that I'd been watching for years are doing and saying things that are completely out of character.
I quit when Higley ruined the show and came back when Farah Fath joined.It's much better than my other soap, DAYS right now. Could it be because DAYS has shot itself in the foot and hired HIgley back?yeah, I'm seeing a pattern.
I watch the show off and on but did return with Blair and Todd getting back together.I definitely will stay when Andrea Evans is back.. Really loved her as Tina.I was 15 when she left but she and Gabriel were my favs.Sad they had to kill off Gabriel as Tina and her could really stir up trouble.lol
I stopped watching after Ty Treadway was off the 2nd time, late last yr I started to watch again. I am a huge Nash, Rex, Jared and Cris fan.With the news of Forbes March being let go, yet again I won't be waching the show at all, unless he is brought back.
I'm getting tired of watching the show. Todd and his "Holier that thou " attitude and Blair just putting up with it. Everybody getting away with things the "normal" people would be in jail for for years. It's is definately an "opera" I like a little "reality" in my shows. GH is on my next " Hit List"
I have only been watching OLTL for about two years, but Todd does drive me nuts. His actions are a little too over-the-top. The way he has been terrorizing Langston, Markko, and Cole has been deplorable. I was so happy when Blair finally lit into him after Starr ran away, too bad it was so slow in coming. Too bad Vangie is in a coma, and REG isn't coming back, she at least seemed to make Todd a little more human.
I had stopped watching for a long time and then fell in love with Tess and Nash. I'll stop watching when he dies.
