I'm not a fan of staged promos at the best of times since they seldom convey the same excitement as actual scenes. This one is shockingly bad, though. The set looks like something they assembled in two minutes and the announcer sounds stoned out of his mind. Maybe that was the "good stuff" he was referring to, lol.

"Now this is good stuff." I guess he's agreeing with us that the rest of this year wasn't. :lol:

I don't even watch this show anymore, but, that had to be the most BORING promo I have ever seen lmao.

I mean seriously if you are a person excited to see this sl... I would think this promo would make you feel like... "Eh not so excited anymore" lol

Kristian Alfonso was a beautiful corpse in that promo.

This show definitely makes me thing "eh not so excited anymore."

What will he do when a woman from his past turns up? I'm guessing it will be the same shit he did last time. Try to help her out, pissing off Hope. At some point I'm thinking they'll wind up in bed together innocently, of course, or naked together to share warmth, and Hope will stroll in and get even more bitch-tastic than she already is. And Hope will turn to some other guy who will wind up being a villain and Bo will be torn and most likely by then Carly will be all over him trying to hide her feelings 'cause she knows he loves Hope or whatever. Vivian will probably manipulate shit, too, or try to convince Carly to go for it. Blahblahblah.

And, see, I'm thinking it will be a tired retread of the Billie stuff because they've shown me nothing that convinces me otherwise. Hell, they aren't even motivated to make a real promo. I get that it's a tease and all that but...damn that was lazy. And arrogant- if I were them I wouldn't assume that viewers know her by name. They need to learn the lessons of Patch/Kayla.

Oh- and it's even worse with that awesome carnival GH promo that came out not too long ago. Silly promo people- step it up! Make it a fan contest if you're that disinterested.

LoL! Seri. Do they not realize that this is nothing new for us?


And, yes, I know...this is Carly this time, not Billie, blah, blah, blah, LoL.

GET EM STEPH!!

I like it.

The promo producer had been saying that the promos released today would not include actual show clips. Those ones won't be posted until around 9/25. This won't even be posted on the NBC site. As she said, they are posting it on Yahoo, MSN, TV.com, and other sites as a media buy and the interviews will be posted on those sites as well.

It's simply to get the word out to those who may not know she is returning. I think they did an ok job. It could be better (mostly the voiceover and the tagline) but it's very glamorous and soapy. They all look great.

Also, Peter and Crystal still have killer chemistry.

I think it's pure crap. You can see some of the equipment. The set looks awful. It's crap. The actors didn't even do a very good job. And I like them. Crap.

I honestly thought Days couldn't do a worst promo than the ones they have been doing but they did it. That announcer sounded like a kid reading out-loud the most boring book in history. And KA, PR and CC looked even more bored than the announcer sounded. Note to Days promo-makers saying "it's good stuff" doesn't make it good.

I mean seriously... you can tell they were just showing a video tape of a photo shoot and added a voice track from some man who sounded like the was reading the phone book out loud lmao.

the hype surrounding the returns are always bigger and better then the storylines themselves.

It was boring. Shit NBC, hire me. I could do better than that in 10 minutes. I'm in marketing and I could come up with something that will do Crystal's return justice. However, anything with Carly makes me excited and seeing her makes me so effin' pumped.

Ok that was the worst promo I've ever seen.
It was probably made by the same people who put that silly video together for the daytime Emmys a couple of weeks ago. I just don't have much confidence in Coday/Tomlin/Higley/Whitesell right now. I sure hope Carly’s return is much better than this awful promo. I still miss Ed Scott.

I agree. For a return this big, that promo should've been much bolder.

LoL @ this post at DC: "That's not a promo. It's a video camera at a photo shoot with the worst voice-over I've ever heard."
I agree. They should have it as exciting as CC's return to DAYS is supposed to be. They need to give the fans something to look forward to and reason to watch.
