B&B just doesn't seem the same

I used to love this soap opera- my mom and I watched it from the beginning and all through the 90's and early 2000's. I stopped watching for awhile but don't remember why (probably due to being sleep deprived with young children in the house, lol) but when I heard that Susan Flannery was retiring, my interest was piqued again. I got sucked back in pretty quick into the story lines and cried my eyes out when Stephanie died. But then after that...I don't know, it just isn't holding my interest. I miss the "original 4" of Brooke,Ridge,Eric and Stephanie. It just doesn't seem the same with Stephanie and Ridge gone now.

Or maybe I've just gotten too old and outgrown all the young-love-romance plot lines that seem to dominate nowdays. I miss the good ole days with Psycho Shiela. Wink

Anyone else agree?

I used to be a complete soap addict during the late 90s when all of them seem to be competing for the most bizarre storyline and great characters, but as many night time shoes turned more soap-like I just lost interest. I do catch a show from time to time but not really sure anyone really has time to watch daytime tv like they used to. I know I don't!
