But does a change in writers really affect the actors that much? As long as they're getting scripts that they're being paid to memorize, I'm sure they won't complain too much.
Agree - so many of the actors have dropped comments during interviews recently which tell me that they'd be pretty happy if there were to be a writing change.
Crap, I tried to type a reply. Serves me right to try to use the flash. It erased everything. Oh, well, I'll try again.

OK, so people were celebrating when Hogan Sheffer was hired, and we all know how THAT turned out. As for Sherri Anderson...the more I read her name, the less likely I'll be enamoured with her. I want to find this shrine to Sherri Anderson that will guarantee a cure for my arthritis. :huh: ;) Seriously, just like what was said about this Thom Racina dude, Anderson's style of writing for the SUPERCOUPLE Posted Image JUST might not work with the show. Even if it did, she's the one who pushed the "aginging" Doug and Julie out for the new idea of John and Marlena (or Roman and Marlena. I can't keep these years straight anymore). She would probably be told to work with the existing cast, meaning, new supercouples of Chelsea and whomever, Stephanie and whomever, yada, yada.

Now, again, it's possible Dena is slowly getting whittled out by Whitsell. Or, like rumors have it, she's pissed at the cast cuts and will do another diva act and really quit. But, until Whitsell is settled, I'm still not sure it's a good idea to add more drama to the backstage at this point in time. Days has had drama for months now. The poor cast has gone through writing changes, probably got excited, only to get things shot down again. It's better to work with the devil you know than the devil you don't know, as they say. Let them get to know the devil Whitsell again before the Dena devil leaves. At the very least, if she goes, let's hope Whitsell keeps the current momentum going, even if it is crap. We should be getting tired of dropped storylines by now. Maybe a new writer could clean them up.

I wish they could take a page from OLTL's book. Yes, sometimes RC's character motives are weak, but he knows how to write great stories that tag-team and involve several characters. The whole Tary storyline that intertwined with Jessica's storyline. Some people liked the SL's and some didn't, but they sure got people involved. Now Jessica's storyline will get intertwined with Brody's. Ripple effects. That would be new and refreshing for Days.
