Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
I was very excited about Ron's writing until Lysie indicated he was keeping Rope. That zapped away all my enthusiasm. I'll continue to read here to see what's happening on Days, but I just feel a huge letdown. I can't help how I feel. I'll never say never though. I watched Days for over 40 years. I want to come back and watch again someday.

Ino the meantime, I miss having a soap to watch. I think I'll try GH first. I watched it ages ago, during Luke and Laura, but not for a long time.
Idk why that soured you so much because that's not all I said about it.
I'm sorry then, I thought you said the show is keeping them together basically by default. It may seem silly to others, but Rope is my line in the sand. They poisoned the whole show for me. I actually do want Days to succeed. I hope Ron gives me a reason to come back.

I've had some twitter friends today recommending GH.

Thanks. For some reason B&B has never interested me. Looks like I need to try both GH and Y&R and see which appeals to me. I kind of hate giving up on Days before Ron's writing starts airing, but I haven't seen anything to draw me back.
I think you should give Ron a chance but maybe wait until the end of the summer, I don't think his first month will be that great (he had to wrap up Dena's stories and write a few exits).

Which show is better, GH or Y&R? I've given up on giving Ron's writing a chance, so I won't be watching Days again. I'm looking for a different soap to watch.
I think B&B is the best out of the other 3 right now. Between GH and Y&R, I'm not sure. GH has a lot of little storylines going on, it's messy but I don't find it boring maybe because the scenes are really short. Y&R is the opposite, better control of the storylines, longer scenes but I get really bored sometimes, it depends.

I don't have a problem with GG blocking people. It's his twitter, he can do what he wants. I do find it interesting that KA isn't blocking the Rope haters too.

Does Dena get a special lifetime membership rate for his app?

OMG, I was trying to see the tweet from GG that you posted earlier on this thread and noticed he has blocked me. I'm pretty sure I was still able to see his tweets a while ago. I haven't tweeted anything @ him and my last Rafe-hate/Nope2Rope tweets are over a year ago. So, has he gone deep in the Twitter feeds? :blulaugh:
Oh he blocked me a long time ago. Didn't bother me at all.. Funny thing is, I used to love the character of Rafe. I was a Safe fan and rooted for him. Now he's the main reason I quit a show I watched for over 40 years

We haven't seen any of the new writing yet. It may be worse than Dena. We don't know.
Thinking back on the past DAYS, there were lots of different couples and not everyone was supportive of each pairing, some you loved, liked and tolerated. I think, while I am not a fan of Hope & Rafe I could tolerate them much more if the rest of the shows writing was much improved. As the show is currently there is no pairing or storyline that is even decently being written. I might be able to support a Brady/Nicole/Eric triangle if I believed that Brady & Nicole were in love, if I liked who Nicole was as a charcter. Same goes for Hipe & Rafe, I could tolerate them if Hope was somehow returned to who she needs to be. Rafe could be the supportive Cop boyfriend and who could be all about her family and other issues that aren't about killing Stefani or sharing family lunches with the Hernadez family.

Better storylines will improve the show even if i have accept the pairings we don't like.
There's nothing Ron or anyone else can write that will change my mind. I still won't watch. But I'll still keep up with things here for the other characters. Maybe something will happen and I will have a reason to watch again someday.

I think the issue with Rope is that even breaking them up means giving them a story and then you have two single characters there's no one for. I bet someone has an issue with them being single with no prospects. Meanwhile, the issue with Hope is that her family is gone now. They'd have to bring someone back (and it looks like they will bring in Ciara) but so far he family has been a bust.
That's awfully depressing. For me, keeping Rope is no better than Dena's writing.

Yeah, I know. I was really happy when Dena was fired and and wanted to watch when Ron's writing starts.

I'm assuming Hope/Rafe are under the influence of the drug, and that's why he proposes. A lot of these spoilers sound drug-induced (as in the fictional drug).
Sounds like the drug is supposed to make you act on your innermost desires. Or in the case of Chad and Abby dream about them.

I though we were leaving that stupid amulet in Greece. Ugh.

I'm interested in Marlena/JJ scenes. Two of the rare still likable characters on the show.
Since Hope has a life threatening reaction, I hope this means subconsciously she'd rather die than marry Rafe. :)

Have you ever thought to yourself, what's the worst possible monkey's paw?
Daniel still being alive because this is some sort of Bobby Ewing in the shower crap.
I'd be OK with that if it meant wiping out everything from Josh and Dena. Even if Daniel were alive, he and Nicole could just leave town together.

Eileen Davidson Returns
I'd love to be excited about Kristen's return, but dammit I just can't. As long as Rope is a couple, I'm not watching. End them, and I'll be happy to watch again.

I don't think this has anything to do with Days. It's the weekend and there will be a new thread on Monday. I do want to know if anyone else wants these plates as much as I do though... :blulaugh:

Me! Me! I love those plates. I need to find them.
