I wonder what "10 episodes" they will choose to catch viewers up?? I am assuming DAYSaster and Kristen stuff for sure.

Got to love the choice of photos they went with and stars they mentioned.

AS didn't get much of a go.
JS didn't get a mention or a photo.

And I've never heard any one refer to Austin and Sami as a supercouple before. Ever.

Lots of use of Hope and Bo and Dr Colin Murphy far more prominent than I would have thought.
If its just an Australian actor thing you think they would have gone with Thaao or even Bren Foster.

Yeah, that is a really strange photo set. Who even remembered that there was a character named Dr. Greg Peters, besides Jason, Matt, and the former Dr. Peters?

Then there's a scene from like 30 years into the show labeled as an "early" scene.

Good for Days, though. Does the show make a significant amount of money from being shown overseas?

This is great news for us Aussies (well those of us with Foxtel anyway), same day as the US is unheard of for soaps over here.

I agree with the odd use of photos with that article - you can always tell when it's written by someone with no knowledge of the show at all!! They always seem to trot out a Justin Melvey picture with these type of articles - no idea why. Maybe they think he's the only Aussie actor that has been on Days. The irony is, we didn't even see his eps over here, as he was on during the years that were skipped by the previous network in order to bring us closer to US dates!

Im just wondering how far they will 'Catch us up' will it be OLD Eps or will it be the currently airing ep's as they do (Foxtel) my parents have it on both tv's in the house alas I don't have it on my tv.

I wonder if it will be like Teen Wolf and Looking where the eps are screened just 'Hours' after they have aired in america as when I was watching on CH9 before it got the axe it was before CM'S Will had yet to come out so Australia was still a fair way behind in episodes so it will be interesting to see what is shown.

They'll be catching us up to what's currently airing in the US, as in we'll see it the same day they do. There is more info here:

This is great news. I never understood why Chanel 9 got rid of it anyway. Days has always been popular here. I love the fact that it will be shown so quickly and I know many people who will be very happy to hear this news.

As for the random photos, just so typical of Australian reporting of USA Soaps. As Presley23 said in her post the person assigned to writing the article rarely knows anything at all about the subject matter and really they have no excuse because all they woudl have to do is just look on the Internet for up to date information and pictures. Some one has probably dug out a 10 year old issue of an Aussie Soap Magazine or an old TV week. Very poor research but we in Australia expect that level when it comes to Soap reporting.

I will forgive the bad pictures because the news was good!!! :cheer:

Happy for Aussies about the catching up, but it's too bad you are just about to skip the whole year when Days became so good again.

i hope they get the book club & probably the one where Eric confronts Kristen right at the end.

But that's kind of mean, "You missed it".

And did SC say 3 women were fighting over Daniel at the same time???
