Abe and Lexie's house used to be Roman's house. And then in 2002 I believe, they gave Roman a new house. It had dark walls. I liked it. It matched his JT's personaliy, dark and dreary. :lol:

Oh yeah... now I remember his house in the 90s. And I vaguely remember thinking the last time they showed Abe and Lexie's house that their staircase looked really familiar.

Yeah. Roman and Marlena's house use to have purple walls I believe. When they gave Abe and Lexie the set to use as their house in 2000, they painted the walls green.

That is the biggest thing I am hoping for Alvin. I just hope Days has the budget to show the sets. I have wondered if that is why we don't see Basic Black anymore.



DAYS owns their sets, and are permanant. The non-permanent sets, which are only used for story purposes are 'swing" sets. :)


Swing Sets -
Java Cafe
Ballistix
Salem Inn
The Cheating Heart
St. Luke's
The Blue Note
Salem Airport


Permanant Sets-
University Hospital
Alice's Place
Titan
Salem Police Dept.
Horton House
DiMera Mansion/Chez Rouge
Ej's Apartment
Sami's Apartment
Brady House/Pub
Kiriakis Mansion
Bo & Hope's House
Carver House
Mickey & Maggie's House (Was Nancy & Craig's House)

Marlena's Penthouse (Currently not in use)
Roman's House (Currently not in use)
Lockhart House (Currently not in use)
The Loft (Currently not in use)

I will never understand fully all the goings on behind the scenes and not sure I even want too. But I can't figure out if shows own these sets why they don't use them. I guess it has something to do with the people that have to get them ready or something.

But sets are just as much an identity for characters as the character's wardrobe, etc.

They define the character and the show. That is just like on The Edge of Night it was always hard to buy the Whitneys as being majorly wealthy because their mansion set was so badly done.

I hate that Days apparently owns these sets and so much of the action takes place in very few locations these days.

I miss the loft alot. That set was an elaborate set, but I loved the goings on there. I miss the Kirikis mansion and the Penthouse and so many others. Days had some of the best sets around.

Salem Place. I miss Salem Place, mostly because sometimes they'd have weird, funny movie titles in the background, and I appreciate that kind of added touch.

Salem Place was on of my favorite places, too.

Nowdays, we don't have any different settings like those, and it sucks. We hardly even see Chez Rouge. Its always the Brady Pub.

And the thing is... from Jan-April we never saw the Brady Pub. It was always to Chez Rouge and Chez Rouge alone. I don't know what the deal is with that.

We aren't seeing Chez Rouge anymore because they turned it back into the DiMera mansion. :)
