well, until WE the viewers can reach a consensus on what we consider an entertaining story (and I ain't holding my breath) I wish tiic luck in trying to read our minds...sounds like a thankless job.


Another good post :hail: .

It's what I've been saying all along. Too much fan division...to many fans wanting different types of stories and styles. Then you have some fans that want something this week and a few weeks later want something else after getting something they want. It's just a mess and it's a big reason why the show is a mess at times.
I would say it is the writers who don't have a well thought out plan of where they want to take a story, and do not have a clear vision of who the characters are. They flip flop around. It is not the audience that is fickle, it's the writers who don't care what has happened before they took over or in some cases, even what they wrote themselves the week before. They have to stop assuming the audience is stupid. If they write themselves into a corner, they need to write themselves out of it in an intelligent way and make it part of the story. The audience is only reacting to what is presented to them. Why would an audience watch something that is not entertaining to them? Watching a Soap is not supposed to be like taking medicine that you are allergic to. No TV program should be like that.
I don't think you are seeing the point.

The point is the writers do have a plan but the plan always gets changed. Why? Because there is no grace period anymore. Just go back to as recently as ten years ago. Writers made mistakes then too but fans were more patient and execs were too. They would stay the course and if something flopped, it wouldn't just go away. it would lead to something else that may or may not be more successful. The writers would not just sweep it under the rug no matter how stupid it was. Now, that doesn't work. WhY? Because at Days it can't work. Corday and co see any hint of fan upset and they react and completely change things, which pisses another group off and then the cycle repeats itself over and over. It's like every action has a reaction that forces another action and then another and then another. As a result, there is never any consistency and the show never can breathe and allow itself to even take the flops it has and use it to help produce something better.

Add to that the fact that some fans will say they want one thing and then completely change their minds and reject it when they get it and the show is just a mess with no clue as to how to fix it because some fans are indecisive and the fans, in general, are divided.
