  1. LATEST RATINGS: February 26 - March 2, 2018

    awful! The shows are in a new free fall. Three out of the four shows replaced head writers in 2017. Which shows will replace executive producers next? My prediction is Mal Young is on the chopping block before year end, and since they brought in Lisa as supervising producer... Days won't make any executive changes. GH will either be cancelled or writers will be replaced. I can see Varni giving head writing duties to Bloom.
  2. 2018: The Directors and Writers Thread

    Alex Hadad first listed as Days script writer on March 14 episode. AND Richard Culliton's name was gone from today's credits. Wonder if he retired. Is Carolyn next?
  3. Days: March 2018 Discussion Thread

    I I felt like all episodes from Andre's murder day to the day Abby revealed her third personality were awful. Friday last week and this week (three episodes) have been watchable. Other than Drake/John and the Steve plot. We don't know what Sheri and Ryan are contributing to the story. the DID Abby plot is definitely Ron, but the ISA poisoning plot felt like Sheri/Ryan to me

    Calling Shelly Winters. GH's earthquake was anything but epic. what a bust.

    Last week or so of episodes have been good. Kassie and Eric sold that plot. John and Suzanne were gold. Despite it being rushed, it's been good soap. The Steve plot is awful but the vets are holding it together. Ciara and Tripp good. Annoying Claire/actress bad. Why is Sal Stowars on contract and in story. I'm sorry; her scenes are worse than watching paint dry. JJ has to be back in Theresa's orbit when Jenn returns.

    Are they going to do an eye transplant story for Steve? I am thinking they'll kill off Adrienne with breast cancer and she'll give Steve an eye? That's so Ron! Judy can still come back as Bonnie.
  7. Days: March 2018 Discussion Thread

    Congrats Days. I'm not excited about the current stories since January but I have to say the production team put out a concerted effort on a shoe string budget from July to Dec (when Carlivati's material started airing) to right the ship. I think they blew the budget during those six months which is why that last three have been lackluster (no big star power other than TC coming on board) and endless flashbacks as filler which makes each episode cheaper to produce. But hopefully they'll get back on track and have some fun in store.

    Glad Carlivati has been giving Richard Culliton and Dave Kreizman more scripts. Both writers have written 28 scripts in the 32 weeks since Ron took over, followed by CC, RM and LC each of whom written 27 a piece. I know Days keeps a bigger staff of writers due to shooting schedule and budget but both men are their best script writers. I still think Ron needs to work on the outline writers. The construction of some episodes is so sluggish and uninspired.

    So the Spectra redux was a complete bust.

  11. ALL SOAPS: Grade February Sweeps!!!

    GH A- (nice balance; Storms was awesome all month; love Anna/Finn; Sonny/Dad sweet; get rid of Nina please; MS never belonged; character useless/ruined; chews scenery; excellent directing; nicely paced; heads and shoulders better since Passanante left; still many issues; mayor plot dumb; love seeing Monica's character treated with respect; Nelle is a great character if they don' ruin it. ) DOOL C+ (Marci Miller rocks; rest of stories boring to bad) YR D- (Dylan redux storyline/loses great actress; show still a mess) BB F (how can anyone watch this show; awful all year long
  12. Y&R Character Recast

    Now hire Robert Scott Wilson as nuNoah
  13. DAYS: February 2018 Discussion Thread

    So this entire Gabi-gail plot is Ron's convoluted way of getting Tyler and Marci to interact and their characters to have sex. What about doing a classic triangle that doesn't force a good character into the hole of murder and insanity. Ron's staking the next year on these two but it's already feeling like a flop.
  14. 2018: The Directors and Writers Thread

    I think he's the only director in soap history who is working on three soaps on three different networks. Very interesting. I think in the last few days his shows have aired on Days, GH and YR. He's popular for a reason! His episodes are stellar.
  15. DAYS: February 2018 Discussion Thread

    I think I can say the show is officially awful again. It's been about a month of really lame or bad episodes. Monday was a new low for Ron. The Steve plot is so bad, even vets Mary Beth and crew (minus Drake who's never been able to act) couldn't make it work. Who gives a ffff about Pam Van Damm; they couldn't even bother to cast someone interesting like Erica Slezak or Sharon Gabet. The show seem on life support. I was a big supporter for Ron's first six months even when I hated the Hattie/Bonnie twists but I can't even get through an episode now. I've been watching GH online which despite its many problems has some amazing directing, acting and day to day writing at the moment.
