Many of those in the top ranking had only been on the show for a short time. These days people complain about that, did they do that back then too or was it okey because it was in the 80s?

Ah, the robot! I remember a Friday episode ending with the robot being sent on a mission to eliminate someone, and we saw that it was carrying Alice's photo. I remember being terrified for Mrs. H!

I was young and a newer viewer at the time and I absolutely loved (the real ) Roman and Marlena. I also was a big Tony and Renee fan. Although Marlena had been around for years, I was fairly new to the show so it didn't bother who was featured, just that the stories were good. But it's an interesting question about what longtime fans thought at the time.

I remember that Stefano faked Mickey's death and held him prisoner in Caracas while Maggie and Don got close. Mickey escaped and returned home, saw Don and Maggie, and had a heart attack. Mickey and Maggie divorced, and suddenly the focus shifted to Pete and Melissa.

Doug and Julie were big for years, and suddenly the focus shifted to Bo and Hope as Doug and Julie were shown the door.

Marlena had been around for several years, and she was a pivotal character in that she worked with the Hortons, was friends with the Hortons, and moved next door to the Hortons. She was well established and had important connections by the time Roman came around.

And Alice was as much a part of Bo and Hope's story as they were. I think those ties to veteran characters were so important, and I think those ties have been missing of late. Dropping references to Daniel being Victor's godson or Nathan being Maggie's grandson doesn't ensure that those relationships are going to be real. I think DAYS is trying, especially with the use of Suzanne Rogers these days (housing Melanie, Mia, and Nathan), but the jury's out.

Gosh, Wayne and Deidre top everyone else in Salem, huh?
Indeed the good old Days. I do believe that the thing that bothers us viewers of the show as it is today is mostly the unrealistic and repeated storylines. Where would we find nowadays a storyline like the Salem Slasher that went on for about a year but was never boring or repetitive?? The S/S, btw, started on 1982. That's probably what nailed the top for Wayne, imo.
Also, each story was relevant for so many of the characters. It was never around a couple..or should I say a triangle.
Thinking about it, the Brady's started popping up in Salem around that year. First was Roman- Kayla and Bo followed. Today every second character on the show is a Brady. While from the Horton's only few are left!
