Viewing Single Post From: Friday, October 4th Daily Discussion

Looking forward to that bump, six! That period of time on Days was my favorite ever: Steve and Kayla falling in love bled right into Steve's backstory with his family, which bled into learning Jack was really Billy and him struggling to reconcile his feelings about it, which Jennifer became a support for. Back then, the writers took the time and told the beats necessary to develop the stories, and gave the actors the time to tell the stories with depth and nuance. I truly believe that is the reason why the Days of today pales in comparison for so many of us. It's not so much that the actors aren't as good (although on the whole, they aren't), it's that the writing for them is just horrendous. To me, everything from '85 - '91 blows everything from today out of the water. The fact that I would absolutely watch reruns from that era, even while knowing the outcomes and suffering through the hair and wardrobe flashbacks, speaks volumes. See ya in the Classic Days thread - get to those clips!
