Is your post a joke?
And you know this because? I donít remember Days hiring any ten time Oscar winners to write for the show. So John (then Roman) and Marlena fell in love twenty-two years ago and they have had plenty of adventures since and there are still a bunch more they could do with them and a heap load of romantic adventure. Bo and Hope have been together longer and I know their fans could easily tell you what they want to see.
Iím not an S&K or a B&H fans and so Iím not totally up on all their history, but Iím sure if I sat down and talked to several of their fans they could give me plenty of ideas for their favorites. That leaves J&M and I can think of numerous things based in the real history alone that have yet to be covered and I know other J&M who can too.
I would disagree, that is mostly what soaps and Days are about.
So I guess youíve never read Douglas Marlandís ďHow Not to Wreck a ShowĒ?Ö http://www.soap-news.com/gl/marland042793.htm Still holds true today, the man knew his shit. A writer who canít come up with good storylines for the majority of the main characters needs to find a new occupation seriously.
So you know it was the EP who made the decision to backburner Doug and Julie? Could it be that the fans of Doug and Julie simply liked other pairings better and didnít mind D&J being backburnered? Iím think Iím pretty safe in saying the fans of the current big three donít feel the same way at all.
I donít think itís impossible at all. Days is on the precipice now, there is no time to build up a fanbase for a new character. NBC still has yet to announce if they will renew and for how long. Last time it was only a year, thatís not enough time to throw out all the old characters and bring in all new ones and actually have any viewers left who give a shit. I would think anyone who loves Days and wants to continue watching it would welcome whatever saves the day for now and worry about the future if there actually is one later.
They tried pushing them into supporting roles more than once and it has always failed. Are you making an ageist remark that people say over the age of thirty have no right to be in love or display affection or god forbid have sex? That all those things are strictly reserved for the youth? And that people canít enjoy seeing that from mature couples? I would hope not.
Btw you do realize that I am a fan of a few of the newer couples and characters, but none are strong enough or ready to take over the reigns yet and Days desperately needs viewers right now, instead of trying to drive away the few it has left.
