Viewing Single Post From: Michael Fairman summary of Peter Reckell SOD Interview

I so agree with what Peter Reckell said in the interview excerpts. If soaps are going to survive, they have to find a way to keep familiar characters relevant while adding interesting new characters to the canvas. If you take away all the vets, you destroy the history of the show and the familiarity that keeps viewers tuning in for years. I had an emotional connection to Bo Brady that I have never come close to feeling for new characters the writers have thrown at us over the last few years. The writers don't do a proper introduction and character development any more, just throw someone like Daniel or Rafe onscreen four days a week, in front burner story, and demand we become invested in them....it doesn't work that way.
