  • What was your biggest disappointment on AMC?

    Mine was Greenlee waking up after the Greenlee and Leo reunion and seeing Zach lying in the hospital bed instead of Leo. Smug Zach back from the dead and Leo still dead! That’s just wrong!

    There was more than one-the first being when they broke up Brooke and Edmund. It was a bad decision. Probably the worst thing they did, in my opinion, was kill Zach. I will always wonder if they did it to further the plotted death of the show, and to get rid of TK's fanbase. It took the wonderful Agnes Nixon fix it, and bring him back.

      I don't recall Zach being killed off, I must have blocked that from my memory lol.
      Wasn't Kendall mentioned to be with him in the PP reboot?

      JC, Zach was "killed" almost at the end of the New York years. Agnes brought him back, along with Stuart and Dixie when they were in LA. And BTW, thanks for the Stuart and Adam stuff! Loved it!

      Wow I really did block that out, yeesh! Thanks for the refresher, I used to be so sharp with this stuff, it’s been too long since the show was on the air!

    My biggest AMC disappointment was when you could tell that AMC had no money. Weddings took place in characters' homes or a hospital room with minimal guests. They had fewer fancy events. Wardrobe looked cheap. It was definitely noticeable and made me very sad.

    If you're talking storyline decisions, I had a few disappointments. Julia Barr quietly disappearing from the show was a mistake. Killing off Dixie with peanut butter pancakes was hard to watch. I wasn't a fan of how Josh died and the massive rewrites the show did to explain why Josh was suddenly insecure and a thief. And then, once he was gone, the show removed all references to him. The last truly awful storyline I remember trying to sit through was Angie giving birth in a park to a stillborn baby, and Jesse replacing the baby with a live one who just so happened to be abandoned in the same park. With all due respect to the actors, there wasn't one believable moment in that storyline.

      Brian Frons taking over ABC Daytime along with the additions of Babe and Krystal were the beginning of the end for me.

        I would say it was the storylines for the show's last 10 years. I stuck it out since I had been watching since the early 70s, but it was hard. Stories were too weird, actors looked uncomfortable, things happened that made no sense, and the show just felt like a comic parody.

            Making Tad a killer, even if by accident was the biggest. Things went down a steep hill after that.

              If this was the doc in the Box story I agree. That is not an accident when you do something so dangerous.

            2 things:

            - Dixie's death by pancake. I really felt like it was a joke at the time, I remember watching every day at that time and thinking "ok, I know there's no spoilers on her not being dead but like they can';t have killed her like that right?"

            - axing the vets. At one point the only vets on canvas was Erica, Tad and Adam. Palmer, Opal, Joe Martin, Brooke, Myrtle were some of the vets left standing and little by little they completely disappeared. I really didn't like that. Then little by little some returned but I really think they did us a disservice and lost many viewers because of this.

              I gave up on the show when all the focus went to Zach, Kendall, Ryan and Greenlee. I never liked any of those characters. I think too many times on these shows production pushes their favorites too much and that why the lose viewers.

                When Donna's baby died as a result of the fire at the Chateau. AMC almost lost me then, and I'm someone who began watching that show when its very first episode aired. In my opinion, it was nothing more than a horrible and unnecessary vehicle for Palmer to recover the large and irrevocable trust he'd bestowed on Donna's baby, who was really Chuck's and not Palmer's.

                    Me too. I never watched the replacement show.

                  I think Killing off Dixie is one also the whole Erica aborted baby storyline where they made Josh Madden the aborted babe. That was a HUGE and groundbreaking storyline for AMC when it first aired.

                    Killing of Gillian and Leo. I think it was because the actors wanted to leave but I would have accepted a recast at least of Gillian because she was only women I ever liked with Ryan. JD was different as he was
                    he was so fantastic and irreplaceable as Leo but he was the epic love of Greenlee life and the show was never the same after.

                    I wish Noah did not die. I loved Julia/Noah and went through so much. I am sad she came back and he was gone😢

                      And then Julia died too, between the two, both were major disappointments. Her return could have been so much more, I loved them both

                    My red line was when they decided it would be neat to have Erica's aborted fetus show up as a grown man. I turned AMC off for good w that s/l except when Jesse came back. I watched Jessie and Angie for a bit but the rest of the show was unwatchable so I tapped out.

                      That was my first thought when I saw this thread as well. One of the most absurd stories (and not in a good way) ever on any soap.

                    The storyline of Zack and Bianca’s baby was the biggest disappointment for me. I never accepted that they would do something like that behind Kendall’s back. It was impossible for me to have suspension of disbelief after that.
