  1. I agree. I think her stint in 2009-2011 had alot of bad stuff, but also some fun too. Her return last year was not offensive but at times kinda boring. I'd like to know what changed too. But first, I read that she was supposed to be the one killed last January and that Andre as the victim was a rewrite. That would have really been a short-term return.
  2. LS has been outspoken every time she's left the show. When she was fired in 2011 she said she would never return, but she did. Maybe this time they asked her back too soon?
  3. Here's part of an interview with JER where he talks a little about John/Marlena/Roman (although the question/subject was about Victor/John Aniston), still it's a good read. That being the case, why didn't you write for John Aniston? Victor used to be the bad boy of Days -- he was in everybody's business. Granted, that was before you got there, but still -- why didn't you make him a rip-snorting villain again? When I came back, Victor had already become the good guy and Stefano was the villain who affected everybody's lives. I looked at what we had -- which was Roman I and Roman II and Marlena -- and as a viewer I had to ask: Why wasn't there more of an impact on these people's lives when Roman I came back and Marlena found out she was sleeping with the wrong man? I mean, all they played was Marlena sort of looking at John when Roman came back and saying, "Oops." That was it? Hello? We're all going to make believe that Marlena, who had been sleeping with John for so many years and raised children with him, would just turn off her feelings? Yet that's the way it was written. It made no sense. Obviously, John and Marlena -- being basically very decent people -- had to put their lives and feelings on hold because they weren't going to destroy the family and hurt Roman and stuff. It wasn't their fault but it was Stefano's fault. I had to do surgery. It was the first story I had to address but to do that, I had to bring back Stefano because he was so crucial to it, and in doing that I could not have Victor and Stefano butting heads. I couldn't have two villains the same age. They'd be like Villain One and Villain Two. And the momentum of the baby story with Aniston and Debbie Adair got killed because Debbie wanted to have her own child and was out at various times when she was going through the in-vitro fertilization process. I've seen alot of fans say this over the years, but when I watch clips from WN's original run in 1981-84, I think Roman's the same kind of jerk that he was in 1991-94.
  4. But wasn't she let go from the show? And only brought back for short arcs with her fake illness and Bill's shooting?
  5. Awful casting for Jafar. Wrong look, wrong voice, ugh!
  6. I don't know how much you guys have been paying attention but FS has gained and lost weight several times over the last six or seven years. He's been pretty open about it on social media how he goes on a "clean diet" for 100 days. I guess after that he falls back into old habits.
  7. DAYS already aires in many foreign markets, and Corday wants to get DAYS back to some markets it used to be in (England, France, etc). I guess new markets such as Africa and Latin America can be tricky. Subtitling is cheaper than dubbing which some countries do.
  8. Hope, Jordan, Claire. How many more character wil be trashed just to prop Ben and Ciara?
  9. About the app, I saw this posted: Corday raised with Sony the possibility of creating different versions of the app for foreign territories in an effort to promote the show in existing foreign markets and to break into new markets such as Africa and Latin America. While Sony originally expressed openness to Corday developing an app for the Series, Sony repeatedly failed to respond to Corday's, NBC's, and third parties' inquiries regarding the app.
  10. Wasn't it said many times that Frank Valentini worked underbudget and that was the money that went to GH?
  11. Some more info in this article https://www.apnews.com/c862aa4e14404a139c10319b29719236
  12. So why bring him back again. Edit. Someone already asked the same, LOL.
  13. I'm not questioning what you're saying, because I'm sure it applies to some parts of the world (like Italy, but what others?), but here in Northern Europe DAYS is more popular than Y&R. B&B and DAYS are the two US soaps that have always mananged to survive while others have come and gone. Santa Barbara and Sunset Beach also did well here. The James E. Reilly years (first run) made DAYS very popular in many European countries because it was something different from our own domestic soaps and even B&B.
  14. Thanks, I should have checked first but I rarely visit that section of the board.
  15. This subject (Corday and Sony) deserves it's own thread...
  16. But.... they didn't. They never knew who they wanted EJ to be. The big bad DiMera taking over after Stefano? The romantic lead? They kept going back and forth and pretended he was grey but the character was a mess, all over the place.
  17. I've seen others suggest that. It's funny cause Robin Strasser and Louise Sorel are friends and it was RS who spoiled Vivian's return last year. But if they plan to bring back Vivian I want LS to play her. Hopefully RS is playing someone else.
  18. Agreed. I don't like to bring over posts from other boards I frequent but this perfectly summarizes why this casting is so messed up: I can't speak to what other fans want. And I can't speak for people who were not aware of the original Diana and don't have a sense of what she should be like, because I have seen the original Diana and know she didn't act like this. I just know that Jack had a very unique, dynamic relationship with his stepmother Anjelica, and this is the actress I associate with that role (even more than Jane Elliot), and I don't relish the doublethink involved in seeing Jack interact with this woman again and have to remember she's not Anjelica and is instead the woman Genie Francis played. Especially when she's not acting like Diana and is acting exactly like Anjelica. ... It's just weird. It's weird anyway, but it's especially weird if Jack has to interact with her because he had very distinct relationships with Anjelica and Diana separately and it muddies the two. It's, like, I don't know. If they brought Michael Sabatino on to play Frankie Brady and Jennifer had to interact with him, but now he's Frankie and we just have to forget that he was Lawrence. But meanwhile Frankie is now a bad guy who acts like Lawrence. It's just... unnecessarily complicated. They could have cast anyone in the world to play Diana. I wish they hadn't done this.
  19. I think the people making stuff up are the ones that need to explain.
  20. Kyle Lowder (Rex) is out too. Also, Stacy Haiduk is back. Don't know if it's as Kristen, Susan or both. Eileen Davidson was recently offered a long-term contract by DAYS but she declined.
