Right right. Bad memory. Not that this is a big problem or anything, more like a preference thing. But DAYS has always lacked at doing them compared to the other soaps, at least one with emotional impact.

Then, the direction and producing probably won't be as good, either. Those scenes on OLTL, going back and forth between birthin' scenes, with this cool song in the background (don't know who it was) was really neat. I just can't picture the same effect on Days. If nothing else, there's more emotion and angst on OLTL than on Days right now. The closest I've seen to a variety of emotional, deep inner angles, is with Nicole and with Lexie (in regards to Theo's treatment).
Yes I don't know why DAYS is so hesitant with montages sequences. When done well they could be really powerful.
Well, they weren't under Ed Scott. Until summer, we were getting all the time. I do agree. They are quite effective and I hope we get them again. Noel Maxam is still there and I don't think Tomlin is against using them as they've been done on shows he's worked on.
Really? The only great one I remember is the episode Doug narrated.
Yep. We had the one during John's death, actually two. There was the Shelle wedding one and the Christmas and New Year's Eve ones.
Then there was one during the plane crash aftermath and during the week of Shawn's funeral. There were several during Bo's illness and I think there was one in April.
