Another thing the writers need to do is have a plan. There's nothing I hate more than stories that zig-zag in every direction because the writers are making it up as they go along. It's so much easier to invest in a story when you know there's a plan in place and a payoff forthcoming.
remember the days of long drawn out buildups with amazing pay offs?
Yes.

It's really sad to see what's happened to this show over the years.
Kenny, I like your thoughts on this. I think DAYS writers of late, (Higley, TomSell, MARMAR) did plan out their SL and consciously decided to included many short story ARCs. I am not sure how writers can scope out a long and meanful SL, with shorter contract periods and limited on screen time, it does cause a we bit of trouble with the cast balancing for one. When was the last time there was a really good SL build and payoff?

DAYS needs to slow down it's pacing and play the beats of the SLs they choose. I think with the 3 month ahead taping situation, most writers are worried about fails, disappointment and flack from the fans, so they rush the SLs. If the SL are not well received, then atleast they are over with. Taping ahead is the MAJOR cause of DAYS problems, the SL are already commited, and no change can be made until 3-6 months down the line. I wish DAYS would see this a must fix. Need to go back to taping 6-8 weeks max.
