You know, I would almost be very amused if Hogan were out as HW and Dena was back in. THEN I bet there wouldn't be quite so many people complaining about Hogan's writing! :lol:

LOL, it would just be one non-writer to the next. So the complaints IMO would be paralell.

Before joining DAYS, Hogan had this wicked rep. (I never saw ATWT), and it gave me the impression that he was opinionated and stood for what he wrote for, he wrote well and stood by it. Nothing he has written represented that at all. He's writing with his tail between his legs.

But the thing is, Hogan WAS all of that before he started writing on DAYS (and actually, he still was even in his first few months on the show). That was before he started working under Ken Corday, the man who never knows when to keep his nose out from where it doesn't belong. Now I'm not saying all of the bad stuff we've seen hasn't had anything to do with Hogan, I'm perfectly aware that it has and it still does. However, what I am saying is that I know Hogan CAN do better than this. Why hasn't he? Well, your guess is as good as mine.

How do we honestly know that Hogan is better than that. The whole time he was at ATWT it was widely rumored that he was greatly helped out by his co-headwriters esp. in the first year which was considered by many critics to be his best year at ATWT. I believe it was Carolyn Culliton maybe that was rumored to be highly responsible for helping him out.

And now we are supposedly having rumors that Meg evidently is doing more at Days than just being co-headwriter.

I still want someone to talk about why he was fired and then brought back working way under Jean Passanante. That has been so hushed that rumors aren't even out there. What did Hogan do to force him to be fired and demoted after winning 4 Emmys.

There was some great stories at ATWT during his tenure. I would love to think he was responsible for at least some of that and deserved the Emmys. But so far nothing he has done at Days even comes close except for the Victor hiding Philip and the custody trial. That was brilliantly done for a story. His stuff with John and Marlena was good but it was still in the early stages and didn't qualify as a real story. I consider the custody stuff a good story - well balanced with Victor and Kate involved and then it just went screwy when they went on the run. But for a few weeks there it was brilliant.

Just the more he works at Days the more I am prone to believe the rumors that his co-workers carried him at ATWT.
