Pam Long didn't see her as a heroine- she saw her as a sexed up vamp. Ironically, the only interesting thing about Long's tenure was the Angela/Ted relationship she created. But, only seeing her as a vamp and not a heroine, there was no follow-through, Ted ended up with Lily, Angela ended up alone, and Nina Arvesen was one of 2 or 3 cast members who didn't appear on the last episode. I believe her last appearance was on the 3rd or 4th to last ep. It was a total missed opportunity. The Dobsons liked writing for her and saw the potential. That changing of the guard in the writers' room never should have happened.
So who does everyone think that they should get to takeover?
It'd be stupid to bring back anyone who has been a producer on this show the last ten years, as none of them have been stellar EPs. All of them have been dreadful if you ask me. The last time the show was truly perfection was about '06.
I'm hoping they take a risk and hire some new blood. Sucks they can't woo Mal Young back to the UK as he's over here on Y&R.
What is bizarre is that out of the three newbie women that Carole emerged as the mainstay out of them. Never would've saw it. I always felt that after her second season she was gonna leave. Especially, after the incident with Aviva questioning her credibility as a writer.
Heather and Aviva always added more than Carole did. Carole didn't truly show up to the party till s7 with her feud with Luann.
Alright it is official in my thirty years of soap watching, whatever flew as the Avant family drama story this past week on B&B is the DUMBEST, MOST ASININE and IMPLAUSIBLE story I have ever seen on a soap. So dumb and nonsensical I can't even describe it words...
