Do you think there were any?\

I was glued to my tv set during Kay's double dinner dash storyline.
I also was glued to my seat during all of the Meggie storyline.

I loved the episode where Patti shot Jack.

The initial stuff with Kat was really the only thing I enjoyed from her

The Kay/Marge re-visitation was really her only highlight - and even that dissolved into a mess and led to the Chipmunk fiasco.

I don't think the show will ever be able to fully recover from her tenure.

I echo Kay/Marge redux, but it went to hell after that.

I liked a lot of it.

Loved the Kay/Marge.
Loved anything with Patty
The Phyllis/Nick/Sharon debacle was fun for a while (until the last year or so)
I enjoyed Abby's part (*ducks*)
Even though it infuriated me, I still like Sharon's craziness at various points (including now).

I don't think she was a great writer, but I don't think she was as horrible as every one else seems to.

That one was the best because everything else started out okay and turned into a clusterfuck.

Kay/Marge and putting Kay with Murphy. Everything else was a hot mess. She points of her stint that were OK but story altogether were hot a** garbage.

SO many of her stories looked good on paper but were executed atrociously:

Sharon's kleptomania
Colleen taking Brad's board seat
Adam/Rafe
Chance returning
Deacon/Amber
Neil/Sofia/Malcolm (mostly ruined by bad casting)
Meggie
Nina finding her long-lost son
Diane's return (ruined by both casting and writing)
Jill and Colin
Yo!Harmony
Phyllis' past catching up with her

I also thought Cane's death was executed brilliantly. Too bad CBS/Sony had to ruin it (and are probably the reason Khalil and Goddard are still on the show).

I love her slutty, unhinged version of Sharon honestly.

I really dug Adam/Heather and Rafe being tied in and the galighting of Ashley. That was a damn fine soapy story.

I could never get past the desperate attempts to make sure nothing between Rafe/Adam was seen, and the odd decision to cast Rafe with a twink who could barely say his lines.

What good did MAB bring?

Bringing back Nina.

That's it.

Didnt we see them kiss? I dont remember. Obviously not seeing it didnt bother me at all, lol. I think if we were supposed to be interested in them as a pairing or couple, it would have been different but it was bascially a simple one time means to an end for Adam. Of course Rafe should have become obsessed and whatnot, that boat was missed. I liked the actor, and I enjoy him on Pretty Little Liars now

We saw them fixing each other's ties. Anything else they never showed. There was a scene where we saw Nikki's reaction to an offscreen kiss. There was a lot of LOLGAY and a clear implication that Adam being with a man meant he was truly lowest of the low.

I never got that implication at all, actually.

Other than one line from Victor where he said gay was OK that was most of what I got. I think the only other non-disgusted reaction from characters was Nick laughing about Adam as a drag queen.

Seriously, beyond my bitching, if I do try to think of another MAB story I thought was OK, I guess I would say Noah's reactions to Sharon and Nick in 2009.

She did okay with the Marge storyline, but it ended with the Chipmunk disaster.
She did okay with Adam/Heather, then destroyed it with Adam turning evil and burning fetuses.
I guess I liked Amber/Daniel together, but she destroyed that as well.

But really, there are SO MANY cons to Maria that it is hard to even care for the few bright spots.
