People complained about Mardar, Higley, and every other headwriter Days has had the past 10 years. No writer will ever make all the fans happy. The show is way to supercouple based and you mess with one popular couple and your hated by the fans..The other shows don't have that problem. If Days brought back Sheri Anderson, she'd bomb like anyone else would. It's a different show and genre now than it was when she was writing..There wasn't even internet back in her day.
I agree 100% although I do agree with Kenny in that with MarDar there are legitimate reasons to be angry.

Days is just a polarizing show. Always has been and always will be, no matter who is writing.
But Corday did the reset for a reason. He was Higley´s biggest fan but he finally had to admit the numbers aren´t enough anymore. He knew she is burned out. FF to next year, he has 9 new and expensive actors on the paylist, the writing team is much bigger, there were additional investments in the HTC set and other things, yet the numbers are worse. There simply isn´t an angle to look at it in a positive way.

Yeah, fanbases can be very vocal. We all know that. But we also know when the story is interesting enough they continue to watch even when still bitching about it. That´s not the case with DAYS and MarDar now. They ARE still pissing fans left and right but for absolutely no reason. What´s the point of Alamainia? Or the completely fucked up J/J/D triangle? Or Abby´s visit in the crazy world? If the show wants to split the supercouples, ok, but OMG atleast do that in a way so the characters don´t act like they are all after collective lobotomy. Nothing clicks, nothing makes even sligtest sense. Things which are promissing and deserves further focus are ignored and forgotten while we spend tons of time repeating stuff nobody cares. The show now is just a bunch of random scenes featuring the familiar faces.
