But, in all fairness, you're one person, and you are someone who is pretty ardent in wanting Philip with someone else. I'm pretty sure Tim was talking about this day and age in general. The more I watch Philip and Stephanie, the more I enjoy their flirty vibe. Although, of course, I'm not part of that all-important demographic. Or am I? I forgot the age range. And he's right. And, of course, Tim didn't mention "demos"; he mentioned the masses, which encompasses all age groups.

^Drew, I would agree with you if not for the fact that it's a very flirty relationship and that as long as they don't have sex anytime in the next two months, it's not rushed IMO. I think it's reflective of modern times. I think there is a disconnect with the audience if you try to make it too old-fashioned. You don't see people Steph and Philip's age waiting around to kiss or to explore each other before becoming a couple. I'm all for slow builds but I recognize the times and culture we live in. People have short attention spans. Hell, people already want the baby story over with and it's only been going since the last week of November.
The days of slow-building romances and stories are gone. I wish they weren't but they just don't seem to be accepted by the masses anymore. There is always fan fiction though LOL.
I don't think that's true at all. I'm part of the demo that the networks want and I loved how Langan and his team had a slow build up to Shelle and Phloe. I don't like "insta-love".
But, Tim, in another way, Days doesn't have the luxury of a slow, drawn-out romance, time-wise. So combined with attention spans, this is the way of the world, at least our world.
