sounds great.at least ONE story on this show wont suck.other then that,the 3 first week of Jan sounds snooze worthy.

Sources hint that Bo and Hope will battle with each other over whether or not to take Zach off of life support and to donate his organs to another child who desperately needs them. In addition, the grief of losing Zach will also contribute to TONS of conflict in their marriage. In the midst of this tragedy, a shocking character will be revealed to be the person who hit Zach and then left him to die on the road and also a secret that Bo has been keeping will be exposed and will rock the lives of many people who know him.

It's chelsea.DUH! I hate all those so called "Shocking twists" we all see miles away. :rolleyes:

Put it this way... ya, I don't trust JER to deliver this. I'm sure somewhere down the line he'll screw it up because he can't leave well enough alone.

I don't either.

JERk's writing style is that he drags things out for a very long time. So we'll see a single stage of it for a very long time, then we'll get a quicky reunion to apease pissed fans. This is a story that has alot of angles to tell, so it needs to move at a relatively steady and progressive pace. Bo & Hope need to be devided, Hope needs to be sick of Bo's protection of Chelsea, they need to divorce. Hope needs to move on with someone else. Bo needs to bond with his daughter (and possibly Billie). Shawn needs to hate his father. Then they need to start coming together for the good of their remaining child, Hope's new beau wont let that happen and then they'll eventually remarr.

It'll take a good 2 years to tell it all if done right.

JER won't mind telling a story for 2 years or more, but fans won't let it happen. They'll start complaining and write letters to the show - "REUNITE BO AND HOPE!!" Corday will then panic and make JER rewrite his story.

I cannot wait to see this Zach story! KA and PR will be amazing.

Alot of the Bo/Hope fans are very upset about this.

Honestly, though... why? People on another board asked me why I was so excited, as if I was crazy. Say... what...? This will give Kristian and Peter AWESOME material! It'll thrust them back to the frontburner, finally (finally!).

Yes, it's sad that a child is dying. But this is what soaps are all about! Happiness, lovey dovey kissing and smooching, you can't have that all day every day. We need some drama, some tears! And for once, a death that actually has IMPACT.

Kristian is ALREADY getting Emmy buzz, and the stuff hasn't even aired yet! I cannot wait. I can't wait to see Kristian come alive again! This was the stuff that Ali Sweeney blogged about, talking about how amazing Peter and Kristian were on the tapes she was watching.

So true Toups-that is the problem and always will be with Days and what I worry will happen to this story. I just wish people were more open-minded like they were in the 90's and would let JER and the writers write. I think that is why so many Days stories flounder or end up being bad because of the fear of fans tuning out or backlash. The good news is I have read alot of postive feedback already about how excited people are for this story. Of course, there was alot of negative comments too but alot mroe postive from what I read. We all know Bope will break up over this as they should but alot of people after awhile will complain and Corday will push for a rewrite and the story will suck at the end. Then we are back to square one. However, I feel like Days is in this story for the long haul since they want an Emmy and all and think they are gonna be quite ballsy and are gonna push this story for what its worth. I don't think they will mess this up-just a feeling.

after they reunite they can have another child. Kill Zach!

I just hope in all of this they manage to include Lexie ...

Alot We need some drama, some tears! And for once, a death that actually has IMPACT.

meanwhile a mysterious hunky teen arrives in Salem about ... 5 years from now

The way Days has been recently and the way the article describes the upcoming death of Zack has me eating my words about JER not being able to write serious stories. Don't expect me to be a complete JER fan, but Days has been quite good lately and not in the usual JER fashion, but in a traditional soap kind of way. I'm intregued about Zack's impending death and the impact it will have on Bo and Hope. Foronce I hope JER will pull it off, it seems to me to have great potential.

Yeah Kenny-I have seen alot of that but I have seen alot of positives too as I said. People need to understand, especially Days fans, that happiness is boring. Without conflict and sometimes tragedy, there is no show or story. Sometimes I don't understand what people want from Days. You just can't have adventure stories or financial and corporate stories. They go nowhere and are boring. Honestly, some of these Days fans need to re-evaluate how they watch the show or something because what some fans want would mean cancellation right now. Every show has to do this because happiness doesn't do anything. This will be the biggest test to Bope ever and I am so glad that the majority of this board and some other boards are exctied about this and willing to give it a chance. My props to all of you for doing that and not being like those rabid "I want happiness" fans that cause Days to constantly change and rewrite stories-that shows you are all open minded and know what a show needs to do to survive and thrive.

I'm telling you, JER has tons of potential. Yes, he can write whacky, crazy things. But he can also write wrenching, heartbreaking stuff, as well. And mixing the two, it makes a perfect soap for me.

It's when JER is ALL whacky, ALL idiocy, and ALL halfassed that I loathe him.

And so continues my love/hate relationship with JER...

Agreed-he is not writing like JER used too. I think Corday is in on this too. This seems to me like a collaborative effort by Days to change the way people think of them as a show. Its almost like a statement to everyone that we are going for it all-respect, ratings, emmys, quality-everything. My props to them if they pull this off-as it looks like they will based on what we know. I am hoping they do this right and show everyone that Days is back to a drama-not a campfest or parody. It will always have its share of camp but the drama must be plentiful and this story can show the world that Days is entering a different era. Maybe JER is trying to prove to everyone he isn't a hack? :lol: Who knows but the potential and impact on the future is endless. I am really excited about Days's direction and I knew since summer the show was building to some big explosion that would make it catch fire with viewers again. This may be it. This will be interesting to watch and to see how the ratings and everything else I mentioned will be effected.

The more I think about all of what you guys have said, the more I am getting excited for this story.

I have been watching DAYS and enjoying it, but I haven't been emotionally into the stories and I think this is the story that will do that for me personally.

BOPE is one of my all-time fave couples and its high time they returned to the front-burner, Alfonso and Reckell are SORELY underrated and I really think this is the story to show people what they really got (not that we haven't seen homerun work from them before).

As for the BOPE fans, I think they should hang in there. Would they rather have Bo and Hope on the backburner showing up in 1 episode a week saying how much they are lucky and how much they love each other......that is BORING! Come on we need some spice, we need some emotions and we need some DAMN conflict and drama, and I am glad DAYS is finally doing something with them.

Bo and Hope are very popular and DAYS did well in the ratings when they were on the front-burner, I think having BOPE be a focal point again on the show will only result in good things.

    • A "progressive" has recently gotten a lot of attention online for being involved in a mapping project of Jewish donors in Boston (which has since been used by white supremacists) and for going on CCP-media  to decry Pelosi visiting Taiwan. Sure enough, she was glowingly profiled by NYT not that long ago.  
    • But they were cold and dying, needed warmth! lolol She did own up to it but by then she'd already "died" twice!
    • +1 to all of this Im shocked and disappointed to see Rena Sofer walk out because she showed again what a fantastic actress she is by playing Quinn. She made all of the outlandish material work - and elevated it to must-see TV. Adam & Eve anyone!? that said, 9 years is a long time and much longer than a lot of us predicted it to be. I was pleasantly surprised that in recent years Quinn become more than Wyatt’s mom - pairing her with John McCook really was a blessing. Now it also makes sense why the show eventually decided on ending Eric & Quinn. She is more fluid with Carter… I wonder if she will get a real exit. I really that she does. Maybe that diamond dude Ricardo’s death catches up on her and she has to leave town quickly. Or something totally different. Just please no non exit like for such long running characters like Nick, Jackie and Massimo.  
    • I've read 3 things that I think might be of interest that I did not see in this thread. A wonderful "review" of Anne's career & Anne's life, on the Roger Ebert website. An article in the New Yorker about Anne's stubborn incandescence. I've misplaced the URL for the third one. I'll find it tomorrow. I am one of those "F'annes" of Anne Heche  who has been positively enthralled with her since her first day in the bubble bath when she had to call Michael for help. Followed her career & life very closely all these years. Always been in a fan group. For the years that it was up & running I was on a web-based board that she was involved with herself. For days after the crash I couldn't sleep. I'm grieving but I'm trying to stay on side with positivity. I'm one of the Mods in a FB fan group helping out the Admin as she is now screening all newcomers & actively blocking, kicking, deleting negative posts, haters, people baiting, etc. The venom that is being expressed is disgusting. And, the Puritanical judgments are way out of bounds. One tiny surreal detail in this saga is that the renter had two dogs & a tortoise, all fine thank goodness, and the turtle's name is Marley. I believe that the renter just had to be checked out & given some assistance because of smoke inhalation, which is also a blessing. She also is having real help with her loss of belongings in the GoFundMe acct. that was set up for her & that people have given to generously. Anne was always very proud of her soap roots! She was proud of the work she did & of the fact that she memorized 60-70 pgs. per episode she was in. She adored her soap fans. She got a kick out of the fact that fans of hers began to call themselves F'ANNEs & she always had time to answer questions about the Love/Hudson twins. I found out last week that one of her primary scene partners at AW Paul Michael Valley who played Ryan Harrison has recently gotten a diagnosis of lung cancer. So, AW alums & fans keep getting hit with stuff. I'm a huge fan of MiT, Men in Trees, and was delighted to find that someone has uploaded both seasons to YT. There's no legal way to re-watch but there is YT. I think it would've been a long-running show if it hadn't run into the WGA strike, although they were moving it around from Please register in order to view this contentnight to night!
