I see your point and if possible second takes should be allowed but time is money.
Well, when a cheap begins to equal shitt, it's time to take it off the air. I'm tired of money being used as an excuse for the sheer awfulness that is Days. At some point, you just have to stop caring about the behind-the-scenes logistics and simply judge what's on the screen. For me, what's on the screen isn't good.
Fair enough but, to me, it's not shit right now.

Soaps were never meant to be expensive. It's the crazy overspending that helped put soaps in dire straits in the first place.

Soaps were originally designed to sell soap and products to women. They were never meant to be art or masterpiece theater. Many consider soaps Golden Age to be when budgets were basically nothing and production values weren't all that good. Hell, the 80's was full of over the top and campy crap that sometimes made no sense at all but people ate it up and regard all that as part of yet another Golden Era.

Budgets got out of control in the 90's and look what happened. Soaps tried to be too much like primetime and when things got bad and ratings dropped, they had no money to be able to keep beloved cast members so those cast members suffered and the fans suffered. It's all been one vicious, horrible cycle and it's all going to end with no more soaps at some point.
