Quoting limited to 2 levels deep
LOL I think the over 100 posters at the Sony Board who have signed on that they are not sticking with Days once SN and MBE leave would indicate their thinking is not working for a good number of S&K fans. Instead, it makes the fans feel disrespected and dissolves whatever good will they might have had.
Oh. Too late then. They've gotten the angry calls and the letters, LOL!

Lots of people are upset, actually. They feel like Days isn't recognizable and they're taking vet characters off so quickly that there's no time to adjust, which may end up hurting the show...But then, everything hurts the show now in some form or fashion.

Thing is, Steve and Kayla have not gotten the benefit of any kind of decent story which would have allowed newer fans to get to know and love them. I think that frustrates people, too, because they know Stephen and Mary Beth are talented, that they're dedicated to what they do, and they care.

It's a shame that this has happened to them when they came back in good faith and were never given much of a break with the writing situation always in flux.

I couldn't believe they were denied a new love story because that's how you tie people in with them emotionally.


This show doesn't really know how to do what's needed to pull it out of its current mess.

I still feel awful about Mary Beth and Stephen being let go. I will miss them tremendelously. Even though they weren't on much, you knew they were still there. Now nothing.
