:iagree: My first choice would be for an entertaining hour, but if Days must tell dull tales, may they at least be different.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
We have no idea who's in charge. We can only guess. What we do know is that what's currently airing is VERY similar to what was airing the last time TomSell were employed. We also know that what's currently airing is what they were writing and filming when the actors were telling us NBC had intervened. To me, it sounds like TomSell and NBC are on the same page. What we also know is that there are at least two other entities fighting for control, so the upper hand could move by even next week. No one knows for sure, but my opinion is that we're going to be seeinga lot of flip flopping over the next few months while they all fight.
I agree, it does seem as if Tomlin is doing his level best to erase the past year. To make it comparable, MarDar would have to have started their first two weeks off by killing off Daniel, and having EJ and Sami holding hands and flashing back to their happier times trice weekly. Plus I'd wager Will impregnating Gabi before he came out of the closet was in Tomlin's long term story for winter of 2012, and it's just being moved back to winter of 2013. He's apparently not hampered by said twist now being totally out of place. Of course, Tomlin/Higley were fired just a year ago for poor ratings, so it's difficult to see how going backwards is a winning formula. :shrug:
I think the good news for some of us is that it doesn't seem like whatever they planned to do is going to happen the way they originally wanted it to. So while I find it incredibly annoying that they're just rewinding back to another time that also drove me as a viewer away, there's a chance that it might not be "permanent." I don't think we've seen Sony's influence yet. Of course, we could hate that, too, but at least maybe it will be different. Maybe? I'm hoping that maybe the fact that all they did was rewind a year is what got other people involved in fighting for control. I guess we'll see. And we may never really know what is whose influence. I don't really care. I just want a show I find entertaining.
