Regarding the preview - this is like 'instant murder mystery'. Set up everyone with a motive within a few weeks, someone gets killed, whooo is the killer? I bet the whole thing will be over in a week or two.

It's like Dena's just flipping through the 'soap writing playbook'. She tries different types of stories each month, then moves on to the next. Plane crash? Check. Premature baby? Over and done with. Illness? Done that, doing it again. Infidelity? You bet. I think if she'd actually invest some time in any of these stories, the viewers would become invested as well.

Well, maybe Marlena kills him, and then it'll be a great story! :D

Um, NOPE. Higley's writing is pretty bad for her too!

I wasn't going to say this, but in my mind the exact opposite of this story is the SSK story. That story featured months of intricately developed clues and leads. This is like the 'instant coffee' version of that, in my mind.

Hee!

I do begrudgingly admit though, its got a real Murder She Wrote feel to it. Even Nick is a suspect! But that's ok. I like/love murder mysteries.

But no doubt it will be Claude when it's all done.

With Higley writing, it will probably end up being Colonel Mustard. :eyeroll:


Thanks Angie.

Decent preview, this actually sounds like it could be exciting. I love a murder mystery! My fear is that the execution will be disappointing. I'm still looking forward to this.

There were rumors that this had been rewritten after Scott was fired and Roscoe even said that it was.

That's the whole thing. People forget that Days seems to be in a constant state of transition, which can contribute to some of this inconsistency. If Corday would just KEEP someone, bad or good, for a while, maybe the consistency will return.
Certainly, if Scott wrote things one way, they'll trash it so Higley and Whitesell can redo it.
And, again, I'm not going to bash it until I see it. I've actually been pleasantly surprised a couple of times lately. Disappointed, too, but also surprised. I've never expected Days to give me 100% of what I want all the time, and it's too much to ask of ANY TV show, even the top rated ones. That's why I make sure I have other forms of entertainment. :D

Are you talking about the comments in SOD? That didn't have anything to do with Ed Scott.

There were rumors that it was rewritten because Scott was gone. Rosoce said stuff was rewritten but not why.
