I don't agree that the acting on Days is strong. It hasn't be strong since they changed the way they film.
Jason Brooks did an interview a while back in which he talked about this. He said that the biggest difference between Days and everything else he'd worked on since Days was in multiple takes. They allow for better performance. If you mess up the first time, you can do it better the second time. On Days, that doesn't exist. Once you mess up, you messed up and if there's no way around it, your mess up will be broadcast in the episode. I'm not saying that Days actors aren't good. They are hard-working and that they manage to give great performances from time to time despite various restrictions is admirable. Many young actors who started on Days have said that working on that show was the best training ground they could have asked for. But, imagine just how better their performances would be with second takes. And why can't the show afford them? Because they don't want to stay in the studio too long and have to pay a lot of money for the electricity? Is electricity really that big of a problem? Days needs a new model for filming ASAP. Someone needs to come in and shake things up. To start with, actors who have been with the show for a while need to be woken up. Some of them are so used to this one-take model that from time to time, they don't even bother to give an effort in a scene and let it show that they were having a lousy day when a particular episode was filmed.
