After they had chair umpires (who are always right, haven't you heard?) tell players that they don't believe them when the player complains of health problems being caused by excessive heat.
After they throw players under the bus for 'poor performance', now they care.
The problem is Phyllis used to fight for stuff that mattered a bit more. Like her granddaughter Baby Lucy who had been sold into an illegal adoption.
Now she’s stealing phones to get to the bottom of her daughter taking a great job that’s probably a dream job for Summer. Her real problem is that her daughters a wimp who couldn’t stand up to Tara or even tell her mom that Tara had threatened to take Harrison away from Kyle. Is it worth getting to the bottom of? Sure. Is it worth numerous scenes, drawing Billy into it and acting like the world has ended? No.
If this is successful it’ll be a big deal for soaps. Days is already successful streaming and this, even with a better budget than the daytime show, will obviously be much cheaper than any of their other original shows. Right now Peacock is trying to figure out what works for them. If this gets good views I wouldn’t be surprised to see more from Days.
I also think this will wake the other soaps are just looking at the attention this got. Y&R is a lost cause, but it shocks me that with its international success that Brad Bell hasn’t pursued a B&B spin off.
Also, for those asking about Pine Valley, I still believe it’s coming. The script was turned in at the end of February. It’s obviously not being developed in the normal time frame that would’ve gotten it on the air this fall. I’m still confident that will get a pilot at the very least.
