But I also admit that if and when Days gets cancelled, it's Bye-bye Premium for me. And not even to be spiteful, it's just literally the only paid thing that I watch on there.

You can send me the $4.99 when you close your account.

@AbcNbc247 OMG! Will is still reeling from the news. Even though the subscription fee is rather inexpensive. I'm pretty sure i will be able to watch it. On YouTube or Dailymotion for free. I saw Beyond Salem #2 on Google Drive. In the current state Days is in is it even worth $4.99?

I'd pay for it if I didn't already have it.  Maybe Peacock could make episodes available for the free app after a week or two to help entice people to get new episodes or something.  I spend 4.99 on coffee most days, so I don't mind.  But I would probably be annoyed if Days was the only thing I watched on Peacock and had to spend my hard earn money on something that should be free.  I would still do it just to follow what is going on though.

I feel like if I put up the multi-episode-when-the-story-could-be-told-in-20-minutes schlock on Netflix, and Prime Video which I always forget about, and 9 bucks for Spotify just so I don't hear the same commercial on repeat every 10 minutes, $4.99 for DAYS and Bravo seems like a bargain for the entertainment value.

    • I haven't watched yet, but that sounds promising. Perhaps not having a personal history with her as he does with the P&G soaps actually helped in that he prepared better.
    • I was just listening to Marquee Moon randomly the other day. What an incredible song and artist. R.I.P.    
    • I was probably the only one in the target age range at the time who was impressed by that lol.  ATWT seemed to me like GL's older (I know, I know, GL was first by a long shot, but you wouldn't have known it going by the cast members who were on the show by then), stable, more popular sibling, even if that popularity was waning.  As other soaps disappointed me, that sense of consistency started to appeal to me.  Even though I never found ATWT compelling long-term whenever I tuned in in those years, and of course it had as much turmoil behind the scenes as the other network/sponsor-owned shows by then.
    • Lol didn’t they kinda do that when GT’s Phyllis dyed her hair blonde?
    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
