My wish list would have been to have someone like a Roger Newcomb produce a livestream podcast discussion, more similar to what Michael Fairman does, but with more room for spontaneity and candor, and have someone like Scott DeFreitas and Melanie Smith play moderator different episodes. Or even Hillary Bailey Smith. They could alternate moderating duty. Roger has produced indie award shows, so he can certainly string some decent clips together, while an alumni leads discussion.
The Locker Room at its best has had some decent episodes but could be a lot better. The few times clips have been shown, they have been pretty poor quality, even when there have been clearer copies posted on YouTube. Puzzling.
Auto-correct wants it to be "Locker", instead of "Locher". Oh well.
An oft repeated sentiment, but if Eileen had been cast as another character, perhaps a sibling of Madeline from Grant Capwell's side of the family tree, I think the fans might have accepted it a bit more. Until Eileen went to DAYS, she was stereotyped as a wealthy daughter, so it might have been more appealing to allow her to play against type, and then lure Cruz into a romance with someone who did not so closely resemble Eden as a character (I always felt the various writers failed to differentiate Kelly and Eden's personality in a significant way).
However, Reese and Jody were so unpopular, and really changed the tone of the show. They were reflective of the de-glamorization of the soaps in the 1990's that was such a poor fit for SB. It felt like in response to the success that GH had in its reinvention in the 90's to be more grounded and tell more human-based melodrama, SB desperately wanted to keep up with the times when they shifted to Pam Long's style of storytelling. Yet, as a fan, I still wanted to see Sophia descend the stairway of the Capwell mansion in a gown for dinner, the Lockridges at the polo club, and Gina striving for money and success. By the time nu-Kelly came around, along with nu-Ted, there was so much less focus of Capwell Industries and the manor, even the lighting became more sepia toned and dark, it was not what I wanted.
