Happiness & Humor are MIA in Daytime

Why is it that TPTB feel that if people/couples are happy on he soaps that that will make them boring? That is so not the case.  Frankly I am a beginning to get depressed by all the sadness, doom and gloom on the soaps. Everyone is crying in their beer for one reason or anther!  Cry  It all makes for a good country western song Smile.  Hello writers people can still be happy while providing the duplicity, lying, scheming, manipulation and backstabbing that are the staples of a soap opera.

Think about it - Jill and Ji Min of Y&R could have become a happy powerhouse couple all the while wreaking havoc on the citizens of Genoa City.  It seems TPTB think they have to create conflict with sad/bad outcomes for couples - that usually end up breaking them up.  Why is that? Take the Young Munsons on ATWT, why are they doomed to constant crisis for them to overcome? Just not needed and I desperately want to see them happy.

What about humor - is there a reason why we cant laugh on our soaps? I dont necessarily mean the comedic, campy over the top stunts either.  I didnt find it humorous when Henry on ATWT dressed up in a hotel maids uniform. But I loved it when Hunt Block was Craig on ATWT and he would deliver some hilarous one liners even in serious situations.   In real life people really do have some snappy, witty come backs even during serious discussions. 

Does your soap offer daily doses of happiness and humor? Am I just watching the wrong ones?

Would you like more happiness and humor in Daytime?
