I'm not disagreeing the show has undergone major change, but here's food were thought: All the vet characters mentioned were new at one point too. Why is it fans back then were able to accept them, as opposed to now where newbies are practically ostracized the second they're on our screens?

This isn't true for every new character - obviously Chelsea has done a complete 180 and now the person I could consider the "star" of the younger set. Otherwise, is it too much too soon (a la Melanie)?
This is worth discussing. Soaps are in a constant state of change as stories are told, characters, actors leave, die, whatever. I'm thinking back to when Bope were introduced with KA and PR. Hope Williams was already a character on the show but the Bradys were still relatively new. However the popularity of Roman Brady gave Bo and excellent connection. Also there was balance with other stories and characters. Time was taken with the newbies to make us fall in love with them before they became leads.

I don't buy that I have outgrown the show not when I've been a viewer just about since the beginning. I've lasted through good times and not so good times but I hung in there. Lately though that has changed because I don't care about most of the character and because Days has strayed away from why I loved them for so long. Love, romance, family and adventure was what kept me drawn to the show now I don't know what its about. For a while it seemed that Days was becoming GH-lite but now I haven't a clue as to what its about.
