Maybe it was just an odd choice

 

Maybe it was just inadequate direction mixed with even more inadequate writing.

 

Ron Carlivati could have jumped ahead to the year 5000.  It doesn't matter.  Time jumps DO NOT belong on soaps, where fly-on-the-wall, moment-to-moment observation is key. 

 

Ron's just doing this 1) because he can and 2) because he doesn't know what else to do.

I could go on about Jenn's hospital room but i wouldn't. 

 

Could we please mention briefly the ridiculous inclusion of the hourglass in her hospital room?  ("Because, hey, a hourglass!  Get it?  What!  IT'S FUNNY!")

 

Seriously, Ron Carlivati has the subtlety of a venereal disease.

Nah. AMC 2.0 did well with a timejump to clear the decks. OLTL had a smaller one built in just by the passage of real time. GH should've had one years ago.


Timejumps are now a staple of shows in creative ruts to clear passage. No programming on television today is in a bigger rut than daytime.

Out of nowhere an hourglass pops up in Jenn's room. Looks like the same one John just gave Marlena. Isn't Saxtons a bistro? They sell hourglass too.ūü§£

God, to think Princess Gina has hung around for a whole freaking year (in Salem time).

 

Yeah, kind of kills me to think that no one figured it out after a whole year of Hope acting weird. But hey, I'll take it over actually having to watch Princess Gina for a year.

Little thing do matter. But this is Days so they don't. I could go on about Jenn's hospital room but i wouldn't. 

 Thank you for not going on about that. the show would be ruined if she had a worse hosp. room.

Well, it IS a pretty nasty-looking toupee.

 

 

TPTB (not just at DAYS, but at all the remaining shows) believe "normal" characters bore the audience.  Ergo, the more lunatics on the canvas, the better.


true, but with all the ways IMPO that this show is horrible with RC writing this dreck.....that is one thing I'm looking past. LOL

How did it just pop up there, when John gave Jack the hourglass.

I found the episode so boring. I must have blocked it out.  It was anticlimactic. Featuring mostly the Eric/Sarah baby reveal. There should've been multiple cliffhangers. But there too cheap and uncreative for that.

Guiding Light jumped ahead a year for it's final episode.  And Dark Shadows jumped ahead 25 years.  Someone needs to tell the soap press not to pee their pants over this.  I has been done before.

Forget about the hair.  What's with the facial expression?  Has he become Salem's answer to AMC's Stuart Chandler?

 

If DAYS just had to commit to this cockamamie time jump, then it needed a HUGE cliffhanger to make it really "pop."  A natural disaster is out of the question since DAYS has less than no money -- but what about the start of a big whodunit storyline?  Maybe someone could have been injured or killed by an unknown assailant and THEN we make the (time) jump.

Goddamnit. I gotta admit, when Marlena said ‚ÄúLike sands through the hourglass...‚ÄĚ it got me.¬†
 

I’m so mad I fell out of soaps. Trying to watch and there’s so many questions. Who on earth is Jordan, what’s going on w/Hope and where’s Sami ? 
 

Great time to start watching again. The time jump will be interesting to watch unfold. Still hoping Rafe disappears for good

Hope you get back into soaps. Yes, they're flawed but they're still really fun to watch

 

Jordan originally came in as Rafe's physical therapist and soon after love interest. Back then, she was perfectly sane. But he's not her baby's father.

Hope has been turned back into Princess Gina again by Dr. Rolf.

And Sami was recently reunited with a nearly comatose EJ and they're off together.
