I think that was one of the biggest things I enjoyed about DAYS back then...remember when Eric showed up under Jimmy Reilly?! He was in the Kristen/John/Marlena/Roman story, the Austin/Carrie/Lucas/Sami story...
New characters and returns actually MEANT something.
Oh boy, do I ever miss the payoffs. The entire week being devoted to exposing someone's web of lies with that one episode during that week which centers mostly on the 3-4 characters who have been lied to for the past year or two.
I miss the DAYS OF OUR LIVES that used to reward viewer loyalty through continuing to give us good storytelling and gave us what we wanted at the end...even if it was for about a couple of months.
The only thing I don't miss about Reilly's DAYS is how we always ended up back at Square One instead of characters moving on. If Reilly had never left DAYS in 1997, we'd still have Sami chasing Austin, John and Marlena would still be broken up, and Billie still coming between Bo and Hope.
