    More garabge and useless promises from these past writers bring nothing new to the table!

    Gary Tomlin improves nearly every show he joins.  And Christopher Whitesell wrote pretty much everything that went right with days from 2009-2010, which also caused the last ratings surge this show had.  They write LONG-TERM stories that are well paced and have actual surprising plot twists that aren’t revealed in spoilers.  This is GOOD NEWS.

    I’d understand the bitching if we were getting Higley back.  But WE’RE NOT!
