I did like the way it all played out with seeing things from Trent's point of view and him watching her and the breathing. It had a mystery novel feel and it was creepy. I like that some of Ed Scott's techniques are still around.
Phoenix I have to ask this, why is it that every time there is something good techniques you give Ed Scott the credit? He's not even on the show anymore yet you are sure that it's because of him we saw it from Trent's POW. Couldn't it be Gary Tomlin that was behind that? I just don't get all the Ed Scott worshipping when there aren't any real facts that can prove stuff like that.
Because Noel Maxam is still there and he came on with Ed. They are techniques Ed Scott is known for and that he uses and I trust that Noel and the directors still with Days are using them because they like them. Days never used those (well, not in the last 10 years or so) until Ed got there. That is why I attribute them to him.

The first person view thing didn't start with Ed Scott. They were doing it way back in the Reilly days. Caroline saying "...You!" totally reminded me of the 2003 SSK story. Also, her taking the knife out of Trent was dumb, dumb, dumb as hell, but I can always expect something painfully stupid on Days.

Okey, but do you know if Gary Tomlin is good? I saw some say that he was more campy, is like Steve Wyman?

He's good. He likes camp but I think alot of fans will be ok with that since they seem to be find straight up character-driven boring. He's nothing like Wyman and has been in the business for years so I wouldn't worry about him.

Koos, your right. It did happen under JER during the SSK story but it wasn't as sharp, at least not to me. I guess what helps it and makes it better then under Wyman is the lighting and the other little nuances (the person's heavy breathing, music, etc).

Yeah, those camera shots from the person's viewpoint have been a thing on DAYS for years, not just when Ed Scott came on. The reason I think they looked better when Scott came on is in part due to the other things he did to the production value of the show, like the lighting and positions of the actors thanks to his directors.

But the camera angles are a DAYS norm, not Scott's.
