Viewing Single Post From: DAYS:Gordon Thomson to play Owen's father

I still don't understand the unrecognizable argument when the show is still being led by familiar faces. .Sami, Lucas, Nicole, Stephanie, EJ, Philip, Chloe, Kate, Victor, Stefano, etc with Maggie, Bo, and Hope seeing good amounts of airtime is quite the familiar canvas IMO. I can understand if you don't like or care about the bulk of those characters but I don't understand the unrecognizable argument anymore now then I did when people made the same case in 2007 with Hogan. There aren't that many newbies. Basically, the only new characters recently brought on have been Mia, Arianna (who we barely see), and now Owen (who again, we have barely seen yet). Everyone else that has been brought on has been short-term or recurring, like in Thomson's case. Even Mia's baby's father is probably going to be short-term. Melanie's new love interest will be long-term but still brings the total of long-term new characters to 4 (and that is if you include Rafe who has been on since October).
Unless you have some info some of us don't, I don't think we can guess who's going to be temporary and who's going to be permanent. But either way, these are the people who will be on Days in the near future, whether or not they'll be on a month after that. We have:

Owen's father
Mia's baby's father
Melanie's love interest
Dr. Baker
Dr. Richman
Father Matt
The nuns (I forget their names lol)

Imo, it's a lot of new characters at once, and combined with the fact that more familiar faces will be exiting (RM, DB), it seems to me that the cast is turning over.

When I read the spoilers, it sounds like a different show. I love King's post (above) asking how long has it been since he tuned in... that's exactly my point! With spoilers like this, it could have been two days.
