Great promo and also a perfect showcase of why Eric Martsolf and Camila Banus need to get the hell out. They just suck so bad.

Lauren Koslow wins MVP of it all, like she always does. Best actor on the show by a mile.

I will note that the lack of post-explosion John/Marlena/Bo/Hope is sad & disgusting.
Noticed that too. If they're on a lot this fall (which it sounds like they are based on schedules/Eileen/etc), I think we might expect a slow rest of the summer for those characters. Sigh. The only reason Drake made it into that promo is because of Bradison.

That was a pretty impressive promo, especially for a soap. If only NBC would air it as frequently as it does the promos for that Matthew Perry show, the animal hospital show, the gay dads show and the power blackout show.

Isn't this the truth? Just... give me some J&M! Core four, please!

That said... this does actually look good.

I literally teared up when I heard Jack say "I love you" & the elevator door close. :'(

I also felt my former fan girl rise up after seeing Ejami kiss.. :wub:

Damn her, she just won't die.

The Ian/EJ stuff really has my curiosity peaked.

Oh, & JS looked especially yummy.

Overall good promo, IMO.

I didnt like the absence of John, Marlena, Bo, Hope, but if the writing is good overall then I can take a break from them until Kristen returns. I try not to be a fan of certain characters and more of a show fan. A good show has writing that keeps people interested in all characters in my opinion. I agree with others that Eric M. was failing with those emotional scenes as was Camilla. The one thing I hate about the actors who were let go is that they can all act miles better than some that are still there (Clark, Muldoon, Ashford, Brown, Buchanan vs. Sweeney, Martsof, Gering, etc. ) It blows my mind really. I wish the writers would write for people that can act.

Hopefully this plays throughout the remainder of the Olympics on actual TELEVISION.
Just said the same - what a waste it would be if it didn't.
Per Judy H., no Days promos will air (on TV) during the Olympics.
WHYYYY! Perfect opportunity. Wow.
Here's what she said earlier (twitter names of those she was talking to snipped):

they r promoting prime time for the fall -have limited amount of promo time.

I agree that it's a shame. It's too bad NBC won't give the show more support.

Let me just add that I'm enjoying all of this positive feedback (for once).

And the entire article was positive, as well. SWEET.

I can't believe I'm going to say this, but the promo makes me want to actually watch the show, you know, until I actually watch it and am dreadfully disappointed.

I'm completely bitter, but I'll admit the promo is good. But I have the same complaint I often have with this show. An event isn't a story. An exciting event makes for a good episode or two. It's all about build and aftermath and creating characters and relationships we pull for and care about. And Days has sucked at that for a long time. Certainly when Tomlin was around the last time, Days was a complete fail with what matters. The Ejami fan girl in me is dead and will not be rising again. I didn't care one smidge if EJ dropped Sami or kissed her or what. That is mainly due to Tomlin and company's failure to play the aftermath of Sami shooting EJ and the rapid "love" to falling out of "love" to falling back in "love" with someone else. That is why, with Sami, EJ, Rafe being front and center, I don't think Days will get better. They are already hackneyed characters. And I have little hope they will pick a direction and bring something solid to these characters. They will almost certainly keep trying to play the Safe, the Ejami, and the Lumi. That results in four weak characters. But that statement should really be in the past tense. They're already weakened. (Lucas, less so than the others.)

That promo pretty much spoiled most of what will happen next week - EJ saves Sami & EJami kiss (no surprise), Abby is rescued while Jack dies in the process (thus Matt's exit), Madison is dead (thus Sarah's exit), Melanie is rescued, the beginning of WilSon, Nicole goes into preterm labor but Dan is able to reverse it & keep her baby alive. None of this i really care about. I will note that the lack of post-explosion John/Marlena/Bo/Hope is sad & disgusting.
The only 1/2 interesting thing is whatever is up with Ian & EJ... though i'm sure that will be revealed in a single moment/episode since Ian must disappear too.
It was weeks before Ian Buchanan's exit was announced and LK was tweeting about working with him for a while after CC/PM/MA/SJB, so I'm hoping he gets to go on a little reign of terror. Hopefully longer than a week. To me that was by far the most intriguing part of the promo.
I agree! Ian was the best part. I'm just a little turned off by the sympathetic EJ that it looks like we'll be getting. :shame: Hopefully there's more to it, but I'm over soft, reformed EJ. :puke:

I was SO happy to hear Nicole's baby survived, but the moment was ruined by Dr. Pork-A-Patient. :puke:

WilSon was beyond adorable. :wub:

Jack! :tears:

Exactly my point. With just that scene she owned. She's the best on the show and has been for years.
