Ok so I started to watch AMC.

I’ve always wanted to get into it but just never did. What really made me want to tune in was seeing the promos of Angie and Jesse and this I guess you guys are calling it the box baby story. I was stunned that Jesse would do such a thing. While I never watched I did follow the major points over the years and knew this is sort of crazy for them to be having this kind of storyline.

Also with all the buzz surrounding K&S and LB coming on I wanted to see for myself what their writing styles are. I wanted to see how K&S writes and the transition into LB’s stuff. Just to see how it is.

I watched 6 episodes last weekend back to back and I must say it held my attention. I was glued to Jesse, Angie, and Brot. I thought it was very good. It really sucked me in. I do feel they are doing Angie so bad. Damn she can’t see and now her baby is dead and Jesse lying about it. Wow! When this comes out. I do feel Jesse should have told her. Although I do understand he didn’t want to hurt her.

I have one question, is this Maya chick a reg character on the show or what and where did she get the baby from?

I loved Erica and Macy’s I mean Crystal’s little confrontation over Jack. I do like the quad they had going.

I generally like everything I saw. I must say compared to OLTL the pacing is much slower. And I just love how the opening comes on. Do all the letters that scroll through the opening, does it spell out the whole title or just bits and pieces?

Oh and this Rev Deacon Ricky person. What’s up with him? Is he really a priest? I had to laugh as I had no idea that he’s the guy from the state farm insurance commercials.

I just love when the blonde little girl be dogging the mess out of Greenlee.

All in all I am going to keep watching so I guess that’s a good thing.

One more thing I noticed is that AMC has a lot of love triangles.

To be honest, I'm shocked that you've never watched AMC regularly before.

me to. I always assumed he/she was an AMC viewer from the screenname

You poor thing, it won't last, the ONLY good part of AMC is Scott & Madison and Tad & Cara everything else is dullsville. Kreizman has turned AMC into Guiding Light..........

Aside from 3 Inside the Light-like episodes, and MUCH better balance, I strongly disagree with this

she's a new character. She just started when the baby story started 2 weeks ago. I beleive she's on contract

I assumed you were a viewer too! Anyway glad overall you're enjoying it. It's a shadow of what it once was--but IMHO (and not dragonflies :P ) it's still consistently the best it's been in some time, and seems to be--and I hope will with LB, getting better.

If sullsville means characters actuallyhaving conversations with each other, stories crossing over, etc--I'm all in. But I admit that kind of soap doesn't seem to be helping in the ratings.

So what is the end game for Ricky?What does he want

He killed Kendall's the best character on the shows Husband Zach last year and she doesn't know it yet. He's trying to keep her from finding out about that. No one suspects him in the slightest, except for Griffin who's continuing to investigate Zach's death (behind Kendall's back, because she just wants to forget about it and move on. Stupid). Griffin has been inching closer to finding out who Ricky really is (one of the casino owners who had Zach killed) & Ricky is doing all he can to try and stop him. He's succeeding so far, as you can see from the past two latest episodes. Hopefully Kendall puzzles things together soon about him and realizes he's not who he says he is & does something about it!! I want to see her kick his ass!! So far she is being written as totally clueless towards him which is a damn shame because it's so OBVIOUS!

BTW nope Ricky isn't a reverend, it's all a farce. Isn't it a joke how he goes around acting like he is & actually performs peoples wedding ceremonies left & Right?? He "officiated" Ryape and Greenlee's wedding earlier this year, they think they're married right now when they aren't, LMAO.

It's funny as I was a Caleb defender last Summer--I thought they did a good job mixing him into the show, and there was potential. But now I just want him off the show... So I agree with you. Both the Caleb story and the Ricky stuff seemed to be planned as the Big stories this Spring, and what's really made the show work have been the smaller stories and situations... But I think that speaks of the (relative) quality of the show.

Ricky's story is I think the worst on the show right now--and I like the actor. It's finally getting at least more interesting--but it would have been more compelling to have him be a real priest. Then again that wouldn't get viewers (but this doesn't seem to be either...)

I agree. When he first came on we were all complaining because we liked him with Kendall and wished the plot would change since we were told Griffin was to be her new love interest (still no chemistry between those two). Now I can't stand the character of Ricky and am just waiting until this is over. That credits the actor. He made us love him then he made us hate him. Not sure how they're going to get around his not being a priest or minister. LB can either use that for more Rylee drama (please god no more unless it's to break them up for good) or she can create him as a mail order minister (a la Tad) and have it be legal.

I started watching AMC in December after a 15 year absence and it's so much better than Days, OLTL and GH in my opinion. I'd rather having boring but watchable than what we have at Days or OLTL. I'm particularly incensed at all the critical praise OLTL gets. The acting is so bad on that show. Yes, I know they have Erika, Jerry, Kim and the other vets. But they are surrounded by the worst younger actors in daytime. Watching the Shane story this week was painful. Destiny and the Ford brothers, the body guard and Starr, Gigi and yes Rex, all subpar or poor performers. AMC has a great cast, great sets, music. The directing is solid, the clothes awesome. The stories have been lame or boring in the last year but they didn't do anything incredibly stupid. Think Y&R since Hogie joined: the chipmunk bandit, Lauren's twin, Adam and Sharon, fake deaths. But it's all packaged so beautifully and the show's ratings are still decent.

I want to see ABC give LB and AMC another chance. I would rather see OLTL go. IT's not the stronger show.
