Any time I turn on any of these soaps I just wonder how in the hell they are still on the air. Especially Days and GH with their atrocious ratings.
I've watched very little amount of episodes since march and when I do I usually just watch Jack. I did watch some of the Gabi and Stefan pairing and liked it. Gabi has her reasoning for her hatred. I don't think Gabi is racist, but the writing from Ron is of course per usual.
Ron sucks at writing the black characters. Well he sucks at writing all of the characters, but nonetheless. From the moment he wrote the half ass cop shooting story that sent the black man that got shot out of town permanently, the rest of the black characters are written as after thoughts as well. Pretty similar to how Abe has always been written. There just to be there. The cop shop folks. Valerie basically just disappeared randomly. All are there just to be there. So this is no different because Lani is not written like a black woman. She written like a damn white girl struggling in college with how overly emotional they write the character. Plus she isn't even a Horton yet. She had no reason to do the begging. Its obvious the writing team has no black writers in them like usual.
The show deserves the tweets storm, cuz like all the soaps, The writing is awful is every aspect. I will not understand NBC renewing Days yet again if they do. I don't understand their reasoning anymore. They're gonna have to peapack the show soon with these budgets.
