Yes but when you're invested in one lot of characters and stories it's a big ask to be expected to suddenly forget all that and start again.

Wow, that sucks for the Australians. I find it interesting that Days won their timeslot there, but they're still canceling it. What kind of network does that?
I think a major problem was that a few years ago they decided to skip a few years of episodes to try to catch up with U.S. and lost a lot of viewers in the process. One day you were watching your favourite couples and the next day a whole new set of characters were on. A lot of long time fans just tuned out. I know my sister was pretty upset!
didn't they do a short "here's a summary of all the stuff that happened during the stuff we're skipping over & here's what's going on now" video to try to ease the transition?
I didn't realise it was more than 8 years ago that they transitioned. I remember when I left Australia in 1991 and it was still 1987 in Salem and New Zealand was another year or so behind Australia!
