DAYS: Major Actress Return Confirmed!


Recommended Posts

This is technically MarDevil but I always loved the Marlena/Kristen rivalry. Can't wait see Eileen and Deidre together again.

I agree, the card has to be played, but not in the same way. I don't want to see post menopausal Deidre Hall, menopausal Eileen Davidson and in-need-of-Viagra Drake Hogestyn in a love triangle. To quote JFP nobody wants to see old people kissing. Those 3, for a romantic triangle, are played out to the hilt.

That said, the Kristin/Marlena feud and the Kristin/John obsession are definitely useful story beats. They should have Kristin out on a warpath to destroy John and Marlena, it'll last a year and be awesome, simple as that.

I'm re-watching Lady In A Cage right now, so what I'm envisioning is that Kristen becomes like Stefano in the 90's. Like Stefano, Kristen will do whatever it takes to break up John/Marlena so she can be with him. We knew Marlena would never want to be with Stefano, so in this case we know that John will never want to be with Kristen. It's not going to be a triangle in the sense of "Who will John choose?" because we already know that. Stefano's obsession over Marlena provided so many stories over so many years. I think that can happen again with Kristen's obsession over John. That's what I want to see.

People can hate Tom Langan all they want, but he knew how to produce JER's material and select the best (out of a sh!tty lot) from Corday's background music...
They have music directors for that. But I agree that Langan doesn't get enough credit for his good producing during that era.

The music seemed to have changed overnight as well after Langan left (though it was horrid by the end of his stay there anyway), even though they have music directors, it's apparent whoever produces the show also set the tone for the show in that (and other) regards.

Corday and Nelson have their thing and they've been doing it since 1997. Corday would never let any of his co-producers change that. The music is his baby. Jason47 posted a while back a list of all the composers and directors, to my suprise there were a whole group of composers in 1993-1996, that was the time period I thought had the best music.

Tom Langan as a producer no problem. Tom Langan as a writer deserves to be hated. Also I did love that era of Days background music. I had the soundtrack at some point but I don't know where I put it... probably somewhere in my parents' basement lol.

Tom Langan at the time was awful as Head Writer; however, I'd take his stories over the crap we've been given the last few years.

Yeah, I guess I would too, but this show wouldn't have gotten to this state had he not been named head writer in the first place... or if B&C had been given longer to clean up his mess. They flipped the show very well in the short time they had.

Wasn't it Langan who did the submarine sex and that weird stuff with Nicole's rapist stepfather?

Subsex was SSM's last hurrah. Nicole's stepfather idr, I just remember her getting called "Locker Room Lolita" over and over lol.
