The news of (yet another) head writer change at AMC I think is good news. If ony for me, because in the past when either or both of them became head writers, it was at the end of the show's run (RIP AW, GL, ATWT). Neither of them had any past connection with AMC, and they were OK but nothing great was coming out. Ms. Borderick had been associated with the show as early as the 70's I think. In any event, she knows the history and can write stories with feeling.
Although there are some bright spots: the baby switch - yes an overused plot device, but the characters' motivation this time is compelling - and the immigration marriage-turning into real love - at least I hope it does - LISTEN AMC, Tad and Cara have great chemistry, showcase that!!! Another possible hit is the David/Liza pairing. God knows, no one else wil have them!
Ryan and Greenlee as currently drawn cannot carry the show. The current plot concerning Madison is unworthy of such a spunky, don't give a d*** character as Greenlee was.
I'll keep watching and hoping for improvement!
