I didn't say that the show didn't deserve to win because the whole year sucked. The system is what it is - winners get chosen based on a couple episodes. Days obviously won because of those couple of episodes, but I don't think those episodes were indicative of an overall high quality year. Like I said, it is what it is. But if Days doesn't win next year (when 2013 has been FAR, FAR superior to 2012) then it will just further reinforce to me that the current system is a dumb way to choose a winner.

I'm happy for Days' cast and crew, as I do think they work so hard on their shoestring budget. With that said, I thought 2012 was not a great year for the show. The first half of the year was awful and the second half was just okay. I did find the Daysaster shows to be entertaining, but that was really about it for 2012.
Now if Days doesn't win NEXT year, I will actually be disappointed. 2013 has been solid soap all the way around with MONTHS of great shows. I'm loving Days right now.
It's not really fair to say the show does not deserve to win cause the whole year sucked....fact is Emmys are won based on two episodes and DAYS happened to submit their very best two episodes, which IMO played very well on their own..and that is why they won...so IMO it is deserved if you look at it based on how the Emmys judge the nominees. Had this been a "collective" year win then yes total crap cause no way was the shows entire year worthy of winning, but the episodes they submitted were arguably the best of the bunch and the blue ribbon panel agreed.
