I'm truly shocked that Days won because its always a sure thing that we won't win! But ya know what....haters hate! Days hasn't been as crappy as people spend hours daily saying it is, IMO. I'm shocked but pleased and literally stood to my feet and gasped when they won. Good for DAYS! And...if they keep up what they've been doing lately, we will get it again next year!
On bolded... that's high praise indeed! ;)

Sorry, James. I really like you and your posts, but those of us who are dissatisfied with the overall quality of the show aren't necessarily wrong -- nor does that mean we are "haters." I can agree that there are moments here and there where there's a good line of dialogue or an excellent performance or a cleverly lined up shot or a well-choreographed stunt. But I can't agree that a few individual moments here and there make for a well-crafted show that is consistently firing on all cylinders. Days misses more than it hits -- and that was certainly the case last year.

"Haters" is really a dumb word that I regret using as I don't find people who disagree with the direction or lack there of for a show we all enjoy to a degree haters lol. Everyone's opinions are beyond valid which is why this board is better than any show on television. I don't think Days is the best it's ever been or the worst it's ever been but I'm loving it right now. Whether Days deserved the win for Best Drama for this particular year can be argued as much as some years when shows won the same award and that choice was argued. For me, as a fully addicted hardcore fan thru thick and oh so very thin since 1991, it was the coolest thing to see my underdog show steal the show and win that coveted award. There were many years when Days earned it, IMO, and wasn't even nominated. It was a cool shocker and I'm ectastic. And like I said before, if they keep up the momentum they've held since before May Sweeps, next year could be cool as well! Maybe I'm too much of a fanboy, but I felt like I was right up on that stage with them. It was just....a total badass surprise. :). Oh...and thanks...I like you and your posts as well!
