I am, as well. I had to give up on Y&R, and I've never regularly watched B&B or GH. I can't remember the last time I wasn't watching a soap... maybe in 2010-2012 when I couldn't tolerate Days, but I was checking out some of the others, if I recall.
I'm not surprised at Camila's crap. She has kind of way too enthusiastically portrayed Gabby as a sociopath, to be honest.
If they built up A/B/C stories then the story arcs/seasons would flow together but they barely do that now. DAYS was consistently good from June/July to August/September and then crap served the rest of the year.
I could happily say goodbye to half the cast and only focus on the Evans/Black and Carver families and I would be happy but can't wait to see this new series.
I would agree with this even as someone who wasn't watching then. Roman has not been needed since The Affair. I don't know how they possibly could have flowed from Secret Room and kept the momentum without hitting rock bottom as you said. I can't think of any other period in soaps where they had such a flow of Gothic mystery adventure. I would die to get this again haha
