    Days of our Lives Spring Preview Promo

     

    What an awful promo! Did someone make this in Windos Movie Maker?  Badass men? There is nothing badass about Ben or Evan. Their fathers actually are. Speaking of which, is Clyde breaking out also just an April Fool's prank? And what about Rex?

    Sounds like John says "Get your balls off my wife", LOL.

    How did Orpheus leave this most recent time? I do like the twist of Evan being his son.

    Steve shot him dead when he and John found Orpheus' hideout where he was about to burn Marlena and Kayla alive in coffins. It was a very weird scene. John and Steve rushed into the room, and then we didn't see John again until five months later becasue Drake had his head injury.

    Love it! 

     

    A lot of those are from their 1999 and 2009 (or 10?) soundtracks they released, but there's some added ones I've never heard in good quality, such as the 3rd one, "Racing Against Time" which was used in the scene where Rolf activates the satellite while Hope is laying in the snow during the blizzard, and she has a long series of Hope vs. Princess Gina flashbacks. 

     

    Yes, that is correct. "Hope's Mystery" and "Who Is Gina" are from the the 1998 soundtrack.

     

    "Kiss of Death", "Discovery" and "Theme for a Princess" are from the 2010 soundtrack.

     

    "Racing Against Time" is from Brent Nelson's website. It first played in 1996 when John used virtual goggles to see Marlena and Stefano in Paris.  But I included it here because like you said it played in that iconic scene of Hope laying in the snow and having flashbacks of both Hope and Gina. Then when she opens her eyes part of "Kiss of Death" played. 

     

    The rest of the scores have been edited from different scenes by me and my friend StefPhoenix. 

     

    I have another playlist with scores from other stories and characters. I update it from time to time with new uploads.

    And my friend also has a playlist

  4. A playlist with 12 musical scores from the original Princess Gina storyline back in 1998-2000, and with some themes continuing to play in 2001-2002 during the Baby Switch storyline and around Greta's Coronation.
     
     
    I was meaning to post these last fall when the new Gina story started but I never got around to it, until today. I'm not a fan of the new Gina story but one good thing to come out of it was a couple of scores. But I don't have those yet.

    I was under the impression the rift was because Crystal was taking away Deidre's screen time, which makes more sense to me.  After the Tale of 2 Romans story ending there was a period in early 1992 where Marlena had very little story or screen time and Carly was everywhere.  Carly was literally in almost every story whether it be her romance with bo, her long lost kid, her issues with Lawrence, Victor, Vivian, her friendships with Jen and Isabella, her great skill as a doctor, etc.  It was a lot of Carly.  And the only things I can remember Marlena doing is supporting John/Isabella and that ridiculous Roman undercover story that had Wayne dressing up like Mrs. Doubtfire until they started the Lombard story and the beginning of the affair.

    By 1993 everything seemed to be more balanced, with Carly more entrenched in the Alamain side of the canvas and Deidre having a lot of material with the affair and aftermath..  I don't remember Carly and Marlena interacting an excessive amount, but I did recently watch 1992-1993 John/Marlena edits and Carly does have quite a few scenes with both of them that are largely unnecessary.  I think both CC and DH acknowledge they didn't get along very well, but I think CC said she was difficult and I am sure Deidre was a diva back then.  It's so strange Carly is so inconsequential to Days now as she burned through about a decades worth of story in 3 years. 

    But CC joined DAYS a year before DH returned so how could she have taken away her screen time?

     

    I read a rumor years ago, that DH was the one who outed CC and MS's affair at a party when they were both still married to other people.

    Yep.

     

    But Kristian somehow seems untouchable. 

     

    They used to. Maggie and Marlena were besties in the 90s and 00s. It's a complicated story that someone can explain better, but supposedly there was tension between the ladies when Deidre returned in 2011. After Maggie/Suzanne had spent the last two years basically becoming the 'matriarch' of the show in her absence. Not really sure what transpired, if anything. But they've oddly not shared a scene. Maybe in passing once or twice. Which is so bizarre since their kids are so intermingled. 

     

    Also, apparently, Albert Alarr is a Maggie/Suzanne stan, hence the cutting of family scenes for Marlena and John and the odd focus on Maggie. Someone decided it had to be a competition between them (Alarr allegedly doesn't like that Marlena and John have so many kids, which could explain why certain ones aren't on the canvas). It shouldn't be. Some of the fans' biggest complaints are Maggie mothering Brady and now we have Marlena nowhere near Will and Will staying in prison for Maggie! lol. It's just ridiculous.

     

    For the record, Suzanne and Deidre hugged at a fan event a few years back so I don't know if it's between them. It's just really bizarre. Suzanne probably felt slighted when Deidre returned.

     

    Ron's got his problems as a writer but he's clearly being pulled in numerous directions. This is not a new problem.

     

    I was happy when I saw that clip of Deidre and Suzanne hugging at Day of Days.

     

    The few scenes they've shared together from Deidre's return 2011 up until ca 2016 were awkward and short.

     

    In these two clips there seems to be more tension from DH than the scenes required for Marlena to have with Maggie.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    But the most awkward one was this. Marlena is standing next to John who's talking to Victor and Maggie. Not even once does Deidre look in the direction of SR and John Aniston. She just stares at Drake even when the other two are talking.

    Ya know, I don't hate the guy, but the character has just been there for years with no real reason. They've stuck him with just about everyone they could (I'm surprised they didn't go further with Rafe/Nicole when they were becoming friends) with no long-term success. He had Sami, but EJ overtook that (just as EJ overtook Lucas). 

     

    If anything, he'd be best served as a Roman Brady occasional supportive role at the cop shop. Some money is better than no money, plus you get a golf buddy! 

     

    I agree. I kinda liked him as the cop investigating the Necktie murders in the fall of 2015. He was also prety good in family scenes with the other Hernandez members. But that's it. He's no leading man and none of his pairings have been good. It's like with EM and SC. They put Brady and Daniel in one lackluster pairing after another and then tossed the women aside. 

     

    I actually just saw some comments on another board. They compared GG with SC and how it for years seemed like TPTB would never get rid of Daniel, and then they finally came to their senses.

    Wow... she's still taping.

     

    That's the DiMansion "study," though... I actually really enjoy that set (I always try to spot what's in the bookcases), but I'm afraid we'll be without the full DiMansion set from now on 😩

    I like that they kinda rotate the use of the DiMera sets. The study for a couple of months, then the full living room (and hallway) for a while. It makes the mansion feel bigger.


  9. I have posted on message boards for over 15 years and have had plenty of heated debates. This is nothing.

     

    When exactly did it become so over-sensitive? 

     

    In this social media age it seems you have to include at least 5 different emojis in your posts or people think you are angry/rude/whatever even when you're not.

    @KMan101 Do we have any concept of how long TJ is supposed to last? Unless they have some hidden aka random s/l planned, don’t we basically know everything important that happened during the ‘year’? 

     

    If DAYS is so budget constrained, how are they still overfilming? I thought that stopped years ago. Why don’t they add those scenes to the online version of the show? I get the OTA version has no flexibility, but giving viewers even more incentive to seek out the digital version seems smart (and good business). Unlike Nielsen, NBC knows exactly how many viewers, which stuff is FF, etc. The more people stream, the longer DAYS will last. 

    What do you mean with how long it's supposed to last? They're not gonna jump back to Nov 8, 2019 when the missing pieces have been filled in. They jumped a year ahead, that's it. Business as usual, the show goes on.

     

    I don't think they are "overfiliming" as in working late hours like in the past. But they tape important scenes that end up being cut, yet have time for long, unnecessary flashbacks.

    Instead of making shady snide comments. You should have told me. In a nice way. Since the time jump . I thought it would be better to lump all the previews. Anyway i made a new thread. 26 pages since Nov. That's SO MUCH. Plus most importantly it didn't bother the admins. I had a really bad day. That was snotty as hell. People should treat others the way they want to be treated. My anxiety disorder is really bad. None of you people care. Feel alone on here just like i do in the real world.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. My comment wasn't aimed at you or anyone else in particular. It was a general comment. We're all still posting in this thread.

     

    Drama queen much?

    I'm willing to keep Nina for now. But I'd rather she have been anyone else and she's still not needed, but I'll give the Jax thing a shot.

     

    Not really sure why they're hanging onto Valentin but they hang onto everyone else so ... I think they're writing him better but this tortured soul and twisted love Nina and Valentin has is ... ugh. Enough.

     

    We'll never be rid of Julian and Franco it seems.

     

    I just really really really want Franco and Howarth GONE. Badly.

     

    Some of ya'll should go back and watch 2012-2014. It's pretty amazing how Frank has butchered the show.

    I'm with you on Julian and Franco. They are the worst. I want them gone so badly. I felt the same way about Nina when MS played her. Not as much now with CW in the role who I like.

     

    I like JPS and the writing for Valentin has improved.

     

    Do you know a good place to watch 2012-2014? Or any episodes pre-2018?

    Because I like to cover my ass and it felt like the DAYS weekly discussion thread so ... ;) LOL

    You know I thought about that. The time jump happened in November. Why is this thread still active?

     

    Every new week or month should have it's own spoiler thread instead of this one getting longer and longer, IMO.

    They also continue cutting the wrong scenes. Jack with Adrienne was cut. Ron posted about it. Real shame someone keeps [!@#$%^&*] with the show. Yet we could get a 3 and 1/2 minute scene on Sarah worrying about Adrienne, who we never saw her interact with before, IIRC.

    I know alot of fans love to whine about Sarah getting much focus but in this case it wasn't uncalled for since she was in the car with Adrienne.

     

    What annoys me with all the cutting of scenes is how they waste minutes of every episode replaying scenes from the previous day. Replaying the last cliffhanger scene is one thing. But sometimes the whole opening act before the hourglass is just a repeat of the episode before.

    I'm guessing Summer is the real culprit (NOT A SPOILER TOUPS, IT'S MY GUESS). It frees everyone of blame and Ron didn't bring her back for a hot minute for nothing. It's how he operates. All of these things happened for literally no reason because it's probably Summer's fault.

    Guess or not, this is the spoiler section of the board. Why would it be a problem to post it?

    1. Yes to Judi Evans returning more frequently. 

    2. No to Adrienne. They did an excellent tribute to the character last week. DAYS needs to make death matter again. 

     

    Last week was a reminder why JE is such a pleasure to watch. Better to be rid of Hattie (DH is so lazy), give that ‘role’ to Bonnie. They could use almost same scripts. Haha. 

    This!
