I used to really love the background music on DAYS. I don't know what happened. Honestly I barely even notice it half the time. I get not wanting it at all but background music is a big part of our soaps.
Even the updated sets look cheap, to be honest. Lighting is mixed. They really need a stronger producer.
Yeah, I love how AMC is still talked about. It gets more press than other soaps that are still on the air. Others explained very well why the show still matters and people still talk about it.
It also helps you have numerous stars still in the public spotlight and many have had various degrees of success (Michael B. Jordan anyone?).
It also helps that Susan Lucci is so active and transcended into mainstream popularity. People KNOW her.
Seriously, when is Days going to get rid of this cheap incidental music? They should just scrap it altogether, have no background music and let the scenes/actors speak for themselves. I want to like the show but it looks more cheap than a high school production. There are so many ways they could modernise the show and make it feel less cheap. It's sad watching old episodes and seeing how good it used to be until the 90s. I wish it could be that good again.
That's true. Brady and Shawn could be buddies.
I think DAYS needs some friendships. I get it's harder to justify spending time on building friendships but .... it's lacking. And would go a long way towards character development.
It is odd BB/MM don't have any chemistry together. They seem to get along and like each other; which translates, but no chemistry.
