if there is less ej, sami, nick and chelsea when Ed scott steps in and only limits them to 2-3 days a week then i will be pissed.

No characters should be on 5 days a week.

james scott, ali sweeney, rachel melvin and Blake berris should because they are all great actor/actress. :P

Can you crawl back into your whole again? your just too much...

I think it could work. Chelsea and Nick could have a past life, too, that ties into...why Celeste is a bad psychic. Kelsey and Rick, set in, say, 1975. Straight outta Boston, so we get the accents. Gosh, that would be swell.

I'm glad Sweeney is confident. Hopefully this helps her improve, because I'm starting to hate Sami.

That's the worst idea I've ever heard. LOL! That's worse than Ali and James playing Santeen or Canteen or whatever the heck they are called. ;)

hey ali and james are doing a fantastic job, they are doing great at the accents and well soon, we will get a love scene between them, i cant wait. I am loving colleen and santo so far but it would have been better with Chelsea as Colleen and Nick as Santo, i think it would be funny with nick with the mustache. But i am glad that ali and james are santeen, they are doing a fantastic job and well the young brady sami and the young dimera ej. I LOVE IT

But i would love it more if Rachel and Blake would play santeen. They are great actors same with Ali and james.

Um, it would kinda defeat the purpose of the whole storyline, since Sami and EJ are supposed to look like Colleen and Santo. :huh:

yea but they stated that this year that sami looked like colleen and ej santo. They could have found a picture instead of sami looking like colleen, they could have found a picture that chelsea looked like colleen and bo and hope would have been more shocked then ever and stefano has a picture instead of ej looking like santo, he pulls out a picture of Nick and says well if the hortons and brady ever found this out, it would rock there families forever and pulls out a picture of santo that looked exactly like Nick. That would be awesome but i am loving santeen with Ali and James. they are doing a great job.

u know what i just pictured nick with that mustache lol

Any idea when Ed Scott's first episode airs?

It sounds VERY promising. I'm assuming Scott's first episode will probably air in late September if taped recently ... ? What's the taping schedule like right now?

Ed's first episode seems to be August 29. It was posted on some other boards and fits with the way Days currently tapes.

Damn Ali is everywhere and that is exactly why she is frontburner and headlining the show's major story.

I love her so much. She is so personable and giving to her fans. Too bad she will probably get bashed just like SN did :lol:

I'm sure Ali is extremely relieved to have you advocating on her behalf.

It's pretty much expected when you have an actress on as much as Ali. Look at the way GH fans bash LW, JMB, BH and KeMo.

Yep and you can add Kim Zimmer, Michael Easton, Alicia Minshew, Alexa Havins and others to that list. They all are bashed by fans of their shows because of the airtime they get. The writers put them front and center because they like them and like to write for them, but they make fans hate them. Not every fan but a large number of them. It stirs up jealousy factors for fans who's favorites are being slighted. For many of them it causes the actor to become cocky.

Katie used to be one of the favorite characters on ATWT as well as Gwen, but now they are two of the most hated because the writers have let them take over every story.

I will be so glad when the writers and TPTB realize that a balancing out of characters would be more beneficial to the shows in so many ways.

1) There would be no feelings of jealousy between fan bases which dominate the soap world today. Soaps of old used to maintain a lead character without letting them dominate the screen time.

2) Stories won't get as stale as they are not featured everyday. How do you think Days kept the Doug & Julie story going for 6 years before they actually married them off. They first made love in 1970 and didn't get together until 1976. They did feature them everyday. They ran several stories front and center during this time: Bill/Laura/Mickey/Maggie; Greg and Susan; Tom's heart problems as he dealt with knowing about Mike; and several other b stories during this time too.

3) And as Rick has pointed out, the budget would be balanced. Right now they pay actors to do nothing, and then pay some more than they are guaranteed. So they pay the extra money out for using people more than they should, and pay people money for doing nothing.

And the most important thing is all fans would find something in the show to identify with or a character to identify with. Not all fans would be happy but more would be happy than complaining.

Ali is spreading her wings. One of these days she will just fly away when a major show tempts too strongly. On Days, she has got to be a dreadful bore by too much exposure and very little good material. I wish her well and wish she would get a great primetime show of her very own.

As many of you know, there has been a behind-the-scenes ‘shake up’ at Days. I had to email Melody (Thomas Scott, Y&R) to tell her how much we LOVE her husband. Ed is such an awesome Leader."

First of all, the good. Love to hear your enthusiasm, Ali! And I am VERY impressed that she can just call up another soap actress -- well, excuse me, e-mail her -- JUST LIKE THAT. Can YOU IMAGINE?! Having soap stars from other networks in your address book?! How unexpected! I love it!!!

Anyway, now to the bad. Ease up on your caps, Ali. Ed may be "awesome" but he's not a "Leader." He's NOT God or another divine figure. Please, use lower caps appropriately.

Sorry. Ali has had many chances to leave Days and hasn't. She has mentioned this in interviews and said the show allows her to do other things while remaining on. She is going nowhere as long as that keeps happening.

The reason why I and others brought up Ali being bashed is because SN got bashed for making a similar blog posting a week ago. It was one of the most appalling things I have seen on a message board. Bashing happens alot but these messages are meant to be hopeful and those damn rabid fanbases bash them and take away from the original purpose. Ugh. :angry:

I wonder if Days will fade the credits in and out at the beginning of the show like Y&R does. Was that Ed Scott's decision?

That was Latham's decision, I believe. LOL!

Do you mean like how the EP and writers are all listed in the beginning of the show? If so, then yes, that was all Latham.

Since it's debut up until last year, Y&R always listed its EP and some of its other credits at the end of the show, everything would fade to black and you'd see in white writing "William J. Bell" or "Jack F. Smith" or something.

To be fair though, Y&R's signature production style existed before Scott was working on the show. It was all Y&R's original EP's decision, John Conboy. Conboy later applied many of the same production tricks on his failed GL stint.
