  1. How much longer until DAYS gets new writers? I can't take this anymore.

      I don't mind Daniel, I just think he's being played as a hero, when he should be played as a bit of a manwhore with a...unique code of ethics. It'd certainly create more legit story for him.

      From what ive learned, they do pay attention to all outlets of feedback, but esp snail mail. Sony, i believe, uses focus groups & indie research. Online is basically just what fanbase is the loudest and most obnoxious.

      lol thanks. I kind of figured that because so many actors have said much of this. I wasn't sure about DOOL but I do know that ABC and CBS uses or used focus groups and snail mail heavily

  2. Let's see if I can get this Nine Lives story written. Gonna take a lot of energy to write this, move, and finish my school work!

      Good luck. I look fwd to reading it.

  3. That NPR report on DAYS actually upset me. Doom is in the air in Salem.

      it just sounded like some plot point stories will be reduced to a week to me, not that every story will start and end in a weeks time. i think its good if they can balance fast, short stories with a long term arc. i do wish they would have learned from the baby swap tho, that was the best they did in a long time

      What is NPR where is this report coming from I havent seen no changes on Days but some stories are moving faster

      National Public Radio did a story on the changes at DAYS. It's in the Mess That Is MarDar thread. The radio report differs from the written report.

  4. Watching clips from Edward Q's trial from late 94...just realized how absolutely horrendous soap opera has become since then. *sigh*

      I was the same way, with Youtube. Around late 08/early 09. That's probably the only reason I got back into the soaps, especially the end of the P&G soaps.

      Exactly. I think GL's cancellation was a wake-up call for me. That was the show that got me into soaps in the first place, and to see it go was heartbreaking. But if no one's learning from past mistakes, they're doomed to repeat them.

      I love GH around that time. Only time I was really into it.

  5. Just re-read my soap pilot script and surprised to think that after sitting on it for a good few months, it's actually really good. Should I post it for the world to see or should I hold onto it and pitch it to someone...or both?

      Maybe you could try a cable network, or a websoap person.

      Post it too, but if you think it's that good you should try for some business.

  6. Me drinking makes me run my mouth a bit...and I NEVER really voice my opinion around here, but get a few beer in me, and the truth come out, y'all!

  7. FINALLY joined the "DAYS is boring" club. *sigh* I held out as long as I could but....EUGH.

      Welcome to the Club.

  8. This has been bugging me for awhile: Does ANYONE have any evidence of a Ritz Gregory playing Eric Brady on DAYS between 1994 and 1997? Because I certainly never saw him when I was watching during 96-97 (pre-Ackles), and no one on YouTube seems to acknowledge his existance. I assume JER didn't really either?

      I don't think I have any Days tapes from that era so I'm no help :(

      Eric was never on from the time Sami came to town until Jensen joined the show.

      Actually Eric was played by several people before Jensen. A few kid actors, and then there was an actor Ritz Gregory who was on in the mid 1990's who played him off and on. Then after Jenszen left for Supernatural, he played him again for a couple more years.

      I'm only slightly disappointed that I still have yet to see an episode with Susan Flannery as Laura. But all these episodes of all the soaps are just amazing. I'm so impressed with it all.

  10. I seem to post in spurts, I say nothing to any post for months and months, and then in one night get verbal diarhrea and you can't shut me up. WTF is with that??

      You should just post constantly like some of us do.
