  1. What I loved about Curlee’s GL (and Labine’s GH) was how it respected soaps as a female genre—centering female diversity and female friendships—while also populating the show with complex male characters who felt absolutely credible, lived in, and with unique points of view that weren’t always likable but always recognizably human. They weren’t just himbos who existed solely to be shirtless or knights in shining armor or self-pitying misogynists or cretins (like Todd Manning or Jonathan Randall or the various dubious “heartthrobs” we saw emerge in the late ‘90s and 2000s). Springfield and Port Charles were such rich, interconnected canvases. If something major happened in one story, you saw how the effect rippled across the entire community.

    I love how invested you guys still are in rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

     

    Headwriters and EPs don't matter on these shows anymore really. They're just warm bodies making sure that CBS has an hour of programming to fill 5 days a week.

    Yeah, unfortunately. A new voice probably wouldn’t be empowered to make changes that would significantly improve the quality of the show. (We’ve been burned too many times to not realize that by now.) 

     

    Still, Josh had carte blanche to bring back a gazillion of his pets. So at least someone new might provide a different perspective.
