It's nearly pathetic, lol. There were at least that many covers. And Ken Corday was right in there with the same old story, which by the way never ended up on screen, because if half of it did, they wouldn't have had so many of these covers, lol.

It really is and it's sad how many times the show had those covers and it never really added up to anything. I've seen GH and Y&R have covers like that once in awhile (actually, Y&R only once from what I recall) but Days has had them a ton. I wonder if they even notice how often they have done it and if they wonder why they've had to do those kind of interviews over and over. Hell, they even did them as far back as 1993 (that John/Marlena/Roman cover discusses big changes with the show's storytelling...I wish I could actually get my hands on that story to see what it entailed to compare it to now). They would have to be morons not to notice how often they've done this...oh wait...Corday :laugh: .

Thanks for this Jason. It's wonderful. Lots of memories. I especially remember Marlena's "death," her return in 1991, John/Marlena/Roman, the affair (one of my favorite stories), and I think John's "death" was their best story in terms of raw emotion and intensity since the affair so that is a favorite memory of mine too. I'm at peace with it but it will be surreal when they go, especially Deidre.

PhoenixRising05: I scanned that 6/22/93 interview you wanted to see, as well as a 3/11/97 one from Ken Corday. You can see them here: http://www.jason47.com/days/scans.html

AWESOME!

Thanks so much, Jason. Your amazing! :smile: .

After reading that article, it's funny how the situation Days was in mirrors the situation it's in now only it had to cut some major players rather then just losing them. I think the plan outlined in that article is what the show is attempting to do now and what is needed for the show to move on. They did it in the 80's and they have to do it here and I loved Langan's line about moving away from the storytelling of the 80's. I like it but you can't box yourself in to a certain model anymore. Not when the audience has so many factions that want different things.

Also notice how Corday is nowhere to be found in the changes feature. It's Langan and Reilly and look how the show turned out. They had the same vision and were allowed to get that vision onscreen and the show took off. It's funny. Reilly and Langan worked amazing together but they sucked overall apart. It seems they balanced each other a bit.

I remember all that like it was yesterday. Days was so character-based and it was one of the few periods it veered away from supercouples and thought outside the box. Marlena infidelity (one of the best stories ever IMO), Bo/Carly. Bo/Billie, etc. I liked the line too about bring both old and new characters back and even recasting some previously mentioned ones. It's what they should do know. The show has lost heavy hitters in the past and usually followed a plan like this afterwards to stabilize. Time to do it again. Belle, Shawn. Carrie, Jack, maybe some more children of some beloved characters, recast some previous characters (Mike Horton, etc)...there is many ideas. That is the way to go IMO and there are ways to work all that within the budget.

Someone should send this article to Corday and tell him that this worked before and it would work again. This is the kind of plan the show should follow, with the key focal point being Corday staying out of it.
