Suggestions for DAYS' TPTB?

The show needs another 1 year arc story like the baby switch. And it needs to heavily involve a long time character. There needs to be an element of "someone getting busted" or "a truth revealed" or a "reunion" of some sort. Take those basic elements and repeat it in another story.

Less Melanie.

Agreed. Right now, having a story surrounding two relatively newbies in Melanie and Carly (viewers of the past 16 years don't really know her) is not a good idea. Having Bo and Hope as supporting characters is another bad idea.

I don't mind Melanie but she shouldn't be in a leading storyline. She was so much better when she was only on 2 or 3 days a week. And please keep Molly from any emotional scenes. She's much better with comedy.

If they were to do another year long arc don't make it about Sami.

It would be great if they could give Renee Jones a storyline.

I'd love another storyline arc like Maison Blanche or Aremid.

Bring back Matthew Ashford and Missy Reeves as Jack and Jennifer

And bring back John and Marlena :lol:

You can bring those characters back, but you have to stay on budget! Thus we get:

Dax Griffin as Jack and Liza Huber as Jennifer

James Hyde as John and Kim Johnston Ulrich as Marlena

I agree the cast balance needs to be better. I'm enjoying seeing more of Maggie, Victor and Vivian but we do need to see less of Melanie. I'm a Carly fan and I'll admit she's been on too much. She needs to be on less as well. I agree with Toups that Bo and Hope seem to be supporting players in the story but I think that has more to do with their contracts and budget issues.

I'd like to see more of Renee Jones. It's criminal how little she is used and yet she is a Dimera. They need to get Lexie more involved with her family or give her some kind of story.

The teens are just awful. I'm coming around to the new Will but something needs to happen storywise in this set. As I mentioned in another thread, the teens are fine when in scenes with their family but put them all together and they are horrible.

As far as production values, I'd like to see longer scenes. These 30-60 second scenes aren't cutting it. I wish Days would have less actors in each show and focus more time on them when the are featured. It seems as if most of the time 12-15 actors are on each show. Cut that down to 8-10 and give their scenes more substance.

We all know about the lighting and the sets. I don't think that is ever really going to improve. Another area which needs a lot of improvement is hair and wardrobe. I know they have a tight budget but some of the clothes are just awful. Phillip needs a hair cut. Carly and Vivian's hair is terrible.

The show needs a real villain. Stefano is in his 80s and Victor is in his 70s so I don't expect either one of them to be the shows big baddie, I'm just happy to see them on as much as they are right now. Once in a while they will do something shady and I'm fine with that.

When EJ a few weeks ago was in the cabin spying on Sami through the computer it reminded me of classic Stefano. The problem with EJ is that the writer keep going back and forth with him. One minute he's good the next he is bad. Make a decision and stick with it.

So if they're gonna continue with the flip flopping of EJ they need to bring on a new villain. And not write him off after a couple of months a la Trent Robbins or The Vitalis.

Give Lexie a storyline.

    • I wouldn't put the demise of Miami all at Adriana's door. She wasn't the only one lying -- Joanna marrying Romain reeked of insta-TV wedding. Honestly, I blame production for pushing 'Duelling Weddings' as THE ONLY storyline sustaining 16 episodes. Weddings aren't quite the draw Bravo thinks they are, and it was boring watching hours of these chicks trying on dresses, etc. Season 3 suffered from: -a reduced wider cast; -No Mama Elsa (a major factor IMO); -no lightening-rod Karent; -increased toxicity amongst the women.  By the end, most of the cast clearly couldn't stand each other, or were drumming up a bunch of insta-fights (Lisa vs Joanna, Marysol's never-ending hounding of Lea). Lea was ready to peace out of the franchise altogether before it even ended. Reunion was a disaster because the rest of the cast were desperate to make S4 happen and just threw anything at the wall to see what stuck. Adriana, whatever you may think about her, was highly dramatic and a big pot-stirrer. I think she deserves a spot more than Larsa, but we will see how the Miami reboot shakes out. I do worry that we haven't seen any trailer or promo for this, unlike RHUGT which was trailed over a month in advance.
    • It helps that Ben doesn't have a long history with John (they've barely interacted) + it plays into the stroke John had which led to him having outbursts. So it's not completely out of the realm that Ben would believe her and even think it was possible because of above factors.

    • I'm pretty sure Chris was present when Kay Chancellor kicked the Fosters out of her house, after Jill, thinking she'd inherited the house from Phillip, moved the whole whip-stitch tribe to Foothill Road.  Wasn't there a big scene where Kay waltzed in and tossed all of them out.    Kay Chancellor and Lorie Brooks had a couple of scenes in 1979.  It was a complicated storyline.  Kay was "dead", having been "killed" in a fire at the sanitarium.  In reality, Kay had survived of course and was staying in the Foster home with Liz.  For several weeks, Liz was the only person who knew Kay was still alive; they had Kay's funeral and everything.  Jill was married to Stuart Brooks and was trying to bilk a divorce settlement from him.  Stuart was anxious to get rid of Jill and was willing to pay a premium to get her butt out of his house.  Brock had revealed to Lorie that, in his opinion, Jill was planning to extort a settlement from Stuart and then run away with Derek Thurston, profiting financially first from Stuart and then secondly from Derek.  Not knowing Derek Thurston, Lorie wasn't sure if this account was valid or not, but she HATED Jill and wanted to be sure Jill got $0 settlement from Mr. Brooks.  Liz babbled to Kay that Stuart was in the process of writing Jill a check for $150,000 to get rid of her .  Kay Chancellor, knowing how Lorie felt about Jill, called Lorie on the phone and said, "Lorie, this is Kay Chancellor.  No, I'm not dead.  Everyone just THINKS I am.  Now, lissssen to me, Lorie. Take the check that your father has written to Jill and rip it to shreds.  Tell Jill to just GO.  She's already made plans to swindle a fortune from my husband.  But I'll stop that as well, and she will get nothing.  Ab-so-lute-ly nothing."  Lorie snatched the check away from Jill and ripped it up.  Jill left Stuart's house with nothing at all, and then Kay herself interrupted Jill's next foray -- a wedding to Derek.  Kay and Lorie were pleased that they'd stymied both of Jill's get-rich-quick schemes.  I don't recall Jennifer Brooks ever interacting with Kay.  It would've been superfluous, as they were the same prototype character -- the vain, wealthy, society matron who depended upon male companionship for validation of their fading beauty.  I expect Bill Bell thought it would be wise to keep them separated, as Kay was simply a more flamboyant version of Jennifer.
