DAYS behind the scenes, articles/photos

Glad I haven't eaten today, Cheap! Thanks... smile.png

In all seriousness, I still to this day wonder what Reilly was thinking.

When Sheridan was buried alive on Passions, I knew he was out of ideas and had to resort to using his former glory day tricks.

Great article! I wish DAYS would start taking risks like this again and make the show pure escapism. Love reading articles from the Reilly years.

I liked Jeff Griggs on DAYS. I thought Jude was a great villain who came on for a specific story and served his purpose.

I thought he was a good short term villain too. I haven't watch the Hope being kidnapped by Jude storyline since it aired, so I hope all of that is the 1 hour video.

When Sheridan was buried alive on Passions, I knew he was out of ideas and had to resort to using his former glory day tricks.

But the week Sheridan reunited with Luis (it was also a big Ethan/Theresa week), I believe it was the show's highest ratings, or close to it, definitely top 3 for sure.

Not all of it. This is more of a "Best of Jude" clip and I didn't want to make it too long.

Thanks for posting that Bo fired/hired SOD article as that issue has always eluded me. Loved what CC had to say about Peter Reckell. We've all heard what that situation was really about but don't know if we've ever gotten a for sure on it.

And thanks for posting the Blacklash article as well. It was really good that DOOL did the David/Val interracial storyline back then in the 70's. I was really young but I remember some of it. DOOL has always been a cutting edge soap. I've always thought the Luke/Laura/Scotty rape SL was just PFS ripping Bell's Mickey/Bill/Laura SL. Anyways interracial storylines were rare for TV and any other form. My friend posted this rare interracial storyline from a Young Romance comic in the early 70's that is surprisingly good. I can't believe DC allowed it to published. http://kb-outofthisworld.blogspot.com/2010/02/inter-racial-hospital-romance-young.html

The backlash over the David/Valerie story hurt so much potential for daytime to change and grow.

I'd never seen that comic. Thanks for finding it. I guess they were allowed to publish because it had an unhappy ending.
