DAYS: Awesome Poster


24 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

The picture of Marlena that John found in his room reminded me of this awesome poster of the DOOL cast I have:

Despite DOOL not having a cast photo that year, I do love that all of their individual cast photos "matched" in term of scheme so that they could be made into a collage so beautifully. I think their recent Headshots are just as well themed, maybe, I'll try my hand at trying to make something similar for the current cast.

I hated that photoshoot. So photoshopped, glossy and too golden. It was too overdone and didnt look natural at all.

Judging by the cast, this must have been right before the Serial Killer went slashing through Salem.

I always loved this poster. "Passions" had one at the same time, I have the image of it on my computer.

The Salem Stalker poster was also really good, used for the movie event they did when Maggie was killed.

That Salem Stalker poster reminds me of the Terror Island poster.

I just can't see John Ingle as Mickey, ever.

For all the (rightful) criticism that Passions that incurred, that show came second to Generations in being the most diverse soap on TV.

Actually Sunset Beach did a better job with diversity than Passions, which used too many stereotypes.

Not really.

While Sunset Beach came close to having the amount of minority characters on the show, Passions still gave their minority characters more airtime/more storylines (however offensive) than the former.

Airtime is one thing quality story is another. TC spent his entire run a bitter black man and the only story I remember him having was the stupid car in the shed, Liz and her suitcase of revenge, and Simone didn't get much either beyond being a best friend most of the time. So yes I would say Sunset Beach did diversity better than them

I think that the minorities were equally marginilised on SuBe. Vanessa and Michael were immediately paired off, put on an island of their own storylines, and only played window dressing in other storylines. I remember we could go months without either Jason George or Sherri Shaum on our screens. Honestly, I do not even remember if they were good/bad actors because the only time I feel like I saw them were at the end of the Opening Credits. Tyus was a dayplayer. Virginia, though a memorable villain, was probably the most predictable soap villain archetype (she was a waiter in a world of executives, a single woman driven by her need to lock in a man).

In terms of the Torres family, were any of the siblings even really Latino? Nick Kiriazis, Christina Chambers, and Hank Cheyne...none of the names sounds particularly Latino to me. "Cheyne" is native American, yeah? On that note, they too were sterotypes, being the blue collar family in the California beach town. At least this trio got major stories, and were well integrated into the canvas.
