What would it take to get DAYS there again?
At this point, I want DAYS to just go apeshit, batshit, James Lipton crazy on these characters. There's nothing left to lose anyway.

Make Bo an Ennis Delmar-type. John a secret Russian spy. Marlena an amateur porn star. Nicole, a respected Senator. Sami, leaving her family and friend behind to join the Aryan Nations. Nick, taking the stalking a step further and stalking Melanie, Chelsea, and Stephanie by writing, "You're MY girl!"
All kidding aside, DAYS has just played it safe for too long. They've tried the whole "character development" route under Sheffer and Corday hated it. And the "event planner" not only writes cute, boring, character developing drama, but she drags it out SO EFFING LONG.

I want crazy characters, soft ingenues, bad boys, villians, vixens. I don't want DAYS to return to the gothic intrigue it had under Jimmy Reilly I. But things just need to happen.

That's not the only problem with the show, for me personally.

The canvas lacks, the writing lacks. Hell, even the production values are stale and uninspired. The show is boring, even visually.

Everything about it just screams "meh" to me. It's unfortunate.

I know what you mean, Kenny. When I first started watching DAYS, the lighting was so dark and dramatic and beautiful. It was like everything was lit in just the right places. And the sets were bright, but still had the gothic undertones. It makes me mad everytime I see the way they've effed up the DiMera mansion. The update just looks so wrong. It looks like Grandmothers House. Not the home of a rich, evil villain.
