I believed the actors when MarDar came on, but now I'm employing John's eyebrow raise this time. I'll believe it when I see it.
That's always the safest route. As I learned from JS and ESS (ATWT's Reid), actors are coming from a whole different bag than the viewers, so yeah, it's best to take the wait and see approach.

I had the same initial reaction that this could be typical hype so I asked Nelson...

At the very least the actors have incentive to try to stay positive otherwise they'd just get depressed (at least I would). So, yes, I'll believe it when I see it. Sometimes the actors and I don't have the same taste, and sometimes it's just that they're trying to be team players which I don't even blame them for. But through no fault of the actors, there's no trust any more on my end.

Um, MarDar's stuff was really good at first. IMO. It was like a totally new show after Higley's trash. So I'm not going to fault the actors for loving that. I know some actors just kept spouting off about how great stuff is "coming up..." even when it ended up being shit, but I think those actors were justified in praising MarDar's start.
I agree, MarDars stuff was really good at first it seemed like a totally different show and each storyline had loads of potential, things didn't really start going downhill until like January/February and things have just gotten progressively worse since then

Thanks so much everyone! I know this is totally off topic but we have been trying for 4 years! I finally got my miracle baby like Nicole - LOL. I wanted to relate it somehow to Days....
And I am going to think of that JS picture every time I think about shoving junk food in my mouth. I should post in on my fridge.
Awh, that's so awesome - congratulations!!!

GET EM STEPH!!

I actually put more stock in the actors praising the writers this time than last because we are hearing about them liking the material mostly through other people. It's not coming from the actors directly aside from JS. We haven't seen actors really hyping how good things are like we did with MarDar. The hype is tempered and any hype we are hearing is merely coming out in interviews or via people like Nelson so that, to me, makes a big difference in terms of believing that we will see improvement.

Everyone talking about JS and pregnancy is making me picture James Scott pregnant.
LOL at first I was like whaaaaaat. And then I realized what we were talking about.
Same here!
And now that I've read everyone's pregnancy stories about weight gain and seen the JS photos I am stepping away from my Cool Ranch Doritos! I just found out I'm preggo and now I'm terrified I will end up looking like Jessica. :scared:
Congrats!!! :hug:

DAYS actors got to tow the line, I'm sure they all feel that they are walking on shakey ground.
IDK why I should believe Nelson Branco.... who is he really to judge the actors and their take on the material. DAYS actors are shitting bricks over all these months of crapping storytelling. One cliffhanger scene with drama is not going to make up for a years worth of crap.

Kissing up to the new HWs is a given. I love my job too, I'd promote the hell out of it just to say safe.

MR pimped the hell out of Dannifer, as the SL she was given, only to suffer major backlash and an epic fail, resulting in being backburned.

KA, always pimping the show, only to get the Princess Gina redo, which was completely senseless and a waste of time. KA always seemed happy to be at work, but covered over the shitty SL, while PR was "holidaying" or working out his contract---whatever. Look at PR now!

Even AZ use to tweet constantly about "going to salem" practicing her lines, etc., those tweets slowly dimished....??

CC- was the only on that seemed really happy for since the reboot, until I read one of her exit interviews, when she commented on the scripts and SL direction and the actors basically said WTF.... we just have to the best the with material as it is written. I think CC did a great job, and still she got the ax.

It doesn't take a soap genius to realize all DAYS SLs were haphazardly being thrown together and couples ripped apart. Yes, the actors had to follow the material, but you'd think they get a chance to raise a red flag to someone and mention that the majority of the stuff seemed stupid, contrived, ludicrous, ridiculous and OTT. I still blame MENG as the executive producer. Do the HWs sit above or below him? Cause, if he was above them, he definitely acted a little too little, too late. I don't care much for Meng and his false promises to bring back characters to weave them in an out of SLs. Meng outta be tosses out like MARDAR.

notice also that he says "the actors i speak to" not "the actors i spoke to" so it's obvious he didn't talk to all the Days actors that were there, just the ones that he sucks up to/suck up to him. If you read through Nelson's timeline, you'll see that he also tweeted this:
nelliebranco: I have to say I am blessed, honoured that the most ICONIC stars of soaps have embraced me. THANK YOU.

What's his definition of "iconic", cause i'm sure Kristian & Peter are considered iconic soap stars, but they sure as hell have not embraced me. Kirsten Storms is definitely not an iconic soap star.

Basically, what i'm trying to say is that Nelson went to the people who like him & who he knew would tell him stuff. Who knows what they told Nelson though. He's been known to stretch & reshape the truth so as to benefit himself.

Aw, Missy is still thinking about Matt even though he's off the show. She seems like such a sweet woman.

She is only tweeting him now due to backlash...I don't think she hates him...but this suddent rush of stuff to Matt is CLEARLY in response to the huge fan backlash she has been getting.

Yes! Same here. And when I was first reading "WW" I thought people meant Wonder Woman. I thought to myself: She signed a fukn contract to be Wonder Woman while she was pregnant/ NO WAY! She's a blonde, and I don't think she could pull off Wonder Woman anyway.

Then i was like, oh! DUH!

James Scott, fat, bloated, pregnant. NOPE. Can't picture it. Can't CANT!!! WON'T!!!

I was thrilled to see that IB responded to my tweet the other day. I don't know how to post the tweets like you all do, but I took a screen shot. Wonder what he means?

DH must be one of them.

He apparently talked to her recently (either at Emmys or in New York) - and then tweeted her: " It was great seeing you! You still out dazzle all the other soap stars!". She also gave him her first (only?) interview after she and Drake were fired.

I don't hold it against the actors one bit for praising MarDar's work. In the beginning, it was good. I was entertained on an episode basis. It wasn't until Noel Maxam left that MarDar's vision really changed and everything fell apart.
