I haven't seen it yet but the stuff leading up to it has been horrible. Freddie is not that type of actor and never will be. Him being a suspect is just ridiculous as well. No one is buying it.

Just in time for you know who.:wub:

 

BTW....SOD latest cover is of Days and the returnees(yes he is on the cover:wub:)....and an interview with RC. I am surprised no one has posted it on the spoiler thread. Another plan to save Days....LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

I totally want to see the cover.

I just put it on the spoiler thread although it needs to be enlarged.

Freddie Smith has always been a bad actor. It's just that in his first run he could hide behind all the preachy dialogue and Sonny's good guy persona.

School me on Ron C guys

 

Everyone is excited and feels he is a good fit that could actually make DAYS interesting again. For someone who's never seen any of his work, what makes his writing worth the fanfare? (I'll seek out his previous work if I can be pointed in the right direction)

 

I havent watched DAYS since like January so I'm excited to see how he plans to shake things up. DAYS may get its spot back on my DVR

It moves fast, and he usually likes to use vets.  The only time he didn't was when Frons wouldn't let him.

 

His first year at OLTL was pretty great, and he told some good stories after that too.  He got me back to watching GH, and I enjoyed most of his first two years there.

 

He also is a shallow writer obsessed with continuity in a fan way.  His stories often lack depth.  And a writer should respect the history of their show, but sometimes when you continually mine that history you create a huge mess and overly complicate things.  The emotions should be complicated, not the plots.

 

My biggest gripe at GH was his habit of bringing people back from the dead just to kill them off again.  AJ.  Duke, Frank Smith.

 

If he loved DAYS like he loved GH, John Black would be the kind of continuity black hole that his show would be devoured by.

For me, he isn't dull.  Ever.  But, he is a bit of a cluster-[!@#$%^&*].  I mean, it's great that he uses the vets but he can't, for the life, create newer stories but he knows how to bring the ratings up.  You won't expect, or shouldn't expect, a 'Karen on the Stand' or 'Margo Pulls Casey's Plug' but you will be entertained.  He is more of an 'Independence day' than a '2001: A Space Odyssey'.  Pure sappy entertainment.  Nothing thought provoking but lots of shirtless guys.  Now, his problem is that he gets over his head.  If he, by chance, tells a story that is even Thom Racina good he'll start to try to tell human-condition stories but they will fail.  That is why it's good that he has Sherry Anderson by his side.

He's going to bring people back and kill them off. 

 

Marlena will be floating over the bed because she's possessed only it will be John in a mask.

 

Sami will go to the electric chair only it will be EJ in a mask.

 

Nicole will steal a kid and run off only it will be Brady in a mask.  

 

Don't take my word...

I haven't watched anything he's written, but from what I can tell the guy is shallow camp.

 

However, considering the current show is a borefest shallow camp is, by all accounts, an upgrade. Not the best sort of upgrade - it's a bit like going from a shitty operating system to a less shitty operating system, but it's at least better.

You guys are awesome! 

 

Sounds to me I should go into this Wednesday with low expectations and continue watching Y&R live and record DAYS to see how Ron C plays out

Based on a few spoilers I've read for the remaining summer/early fall...he is going to bring bac k the worst aspects of Days.  And I don't like the spoiler about Anne Milbauer that I read for the next week or two either.

LOL. There's been very little about what he plans to do. Where are these spoilers? And what's the Anne spoiler? I hope he doesn't throw her under the bus and write her out.
