It seems like DAYS is pulling out all the stops. I can't wait to see how the show looks in a month.

Hopefully, all these people can turn the show around. But I'm afraid that people won't start watching just because the lighting is changed. Or the camera movement is different.

They will need to produce better stories and feature characters we want to see. Until then, the entire staff of Y&R can work on the show and it still won't be more watched, IMO.

Yeah, but honestly, in the case of many of the show's stories right now, I don't necessarily think that it's the story itself that lacks -- it's the execution. The acting, the directing, musical cues... basically, the technical things. They fail to enhance the stories as they should.

Really? I don't know... I kinda don't like Hogan's way of storytelling...

I can't stand Hogan's storytelling. Hopefully Scott will set that as a goal to change too.

I don't know about all these changes. I am trying to stay on the positive side.

But look at what happened when Hogan fired all the writers familiar with Days. It has hurt in the script writing a lot and little nods of history. I don't think it is ever a good thing to get rid of all people that know a show and bring in a whole new crew. Days needs some changes but this is way too much.

This is no more than what Latham did at Y&R and look how that has turned out. Y&R is now a show we don't recognize.

It looks like they are trying to make Days the new Y&R. That might sound good on some ways but turning one show into a carbon copy of the other is not the best way to go. It will not help to bring back fans who are used to a certain aspect of Days either - a part of Days that they are missing right now.

I hope for right now that he makes changes but I hope some of those changes are to the stories and the balance and not just cosmetic. To me that is what needs the most work.

Sony listed Noel Maxam as Supervising Producer a few weeks ago on the Days Sony site. He was actually never a producer on Y&R, just director. So far, Kathy Foster is an occasional director, Sony hasn't listed her as apart of the Days directing team yet.

Hopefully, everything works out for Days. Let's just hope Corday and Hogan don't screw things up.....AGAIN.

I don't think DAYS will ever reach Y&R status, or what used to be Y&R status, but them being close to it is fine for me. :) I think that the show can become successful with that way of producing because that's how the 60s and 70s were under Bill Bell's pen. I know there's a different audience now, but hopefully this new audience will accept it as something that's so much better than the crap we've been receiving for years.

That's how I feel.

The stories on paper are fine but it's all about translating it onscreen and that has been lacking. So has emotional connection and intensity. The last two weeks has had that. I feel the show is taken itself seriously now and it's really trying to be the best it can be.

I am excited about these changes. One thing to note...the lighting is similar to JER's first run with the gothic tones that it makes me wonder how JER's second run would've looked under Ed Scott. I don't want him back but I am curious.

I don't mind Hogan's storyline. The thing that irritates me is the pace. One week the story is picking up rapidly, and then the next week, it moves slower than a snail. The lack of balance is annoying, too. Theres so many characters, and no usage for many of them.

This is what Ed Scott meant about wrapping up the trill/spill storylines and having more relationships types. I'm just so thrilled that Kathryn Foster is on board. Her Santo/Colleen wonderful scenes are Emmy worthy. Days really had needed that.

The storylines on paper are crap right now, imho. There's an interesting spark in some of them, potential in others, but...crap.

I'm wary. I liked Days for being Days as I knew it- relaxed, fun, ridiculous at times but mostly entertaining in its stupidity (chip in a tooth? let's roll!). But since they can't do that anymore, I'm willing to see how a tweaked version works.

I'm also eager to see how these people do at character creation. Lighting and music and whatnot are all good, but they need some good fresh blood more than anything, imho.

I've already seen changes in some of the acting, especially the younger ones.

From what I've seen, I think mostly everyone has already stepped up their acting since Ed's been on. VERY good sign.
