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

Sounds like Peter is getting the PR machine going and trying to position himself for an offer to return to DAYS. I do find it somewhat disingenuous for him to blame artistic reasons for a departure. Soaps aren't exactly known for their artistic merit and by the way, he's been without a story of any value for some time now. Frankly, I think the supercouple model limits the stories available to him because any story outside of the coupledom would be viewed as un-Bo-like by long time viewers and he, apparently, has no interest in upsetting that applecart. Peter left because he was asked to take another pay cut.

There are certain harsh realities about daytime tv and television in general that must be accepted. Peter is nearly 60 years old in a genre that is on its last legs. Nothing short of a time machine will please the fans wanting a Bo return.
