The time frame on this show continues to baffle me.

Today, Holly was talking about what happened the evening before (Prom) and then Brady is talking about taking Rachel to the 4th of July fireworks the next day.

It may seem like a minor complaint but it's annoying and disrespectful to those of us who continue to watch, hoping for the best and still waiting.

No, her first husband Don. The boy was premature and died from SIDS a couple of months after birth. With Don as the father, that would clear the previous thoughts of John being Leo's father. Of course, paternity tests are often wrong in the world of soaps.

by Anonymousreply 55July 6, 2024 4:15 AM

One of the things that annoys me about the Twitter fans is that they all seem to despise Leo, yet bitch that the soaps don't have any gay representation. What they should say is that they want gay representation that meets their limited idea of what gay is.

I can understand that Leo is not everyone's cup of tea, but I can appreciate a messy, inappropriate, damaged and flaming gay man to the countless sterile portrayals of gay men we've seen in soaps over the years.

And for the record, I think Ron's Days is way too silly and eye rolling, but the show's problem is not Leo. Leo is actually one of the few bright spots.

And to those complaining about Marlena watching a movie with Leo as being unprofessional, this is the same woman who treats half her family members and was still practicing while she was possessed by the devil. And when she's not possessed or locked in a golden bird cage, she's still committing all other kinds of medical ethics violations. Marlena left on the unprofessional train over 4 decades ago, even though I realize that she's only 33.

This show is entertaining as hell, and most complainers seem to have a (very therapy-worthy) hate-on for Ron, personally. Some of the loudest whiners are still pining for the Susan-Flannery-as-Laura-Horton era. And I'm not sure how they are even able to use a computer.

The press releases about Peacock viewership successes are all about their live sports programming. Their WWE broadcasts have been a phenomenal draw. They've also had noteworthy success with NFL Football, Premier League Soccer, and Six Nations Rugby.

As a promotional tie-in, I would STRONGLY suggest that Days start scripting scenes where the actors perform their scenes wearing wrestling briefs, jock straps, budgie smugglers, or simply walk around free-balling in rugby shorts.

by Anonymousreply 98July 9, 2024 2:36 AM

The most information you can get about viewers on the Peacock app is to look at the daily top 10s, which Days is in every day except the weekends. Every streaming app tells you what shows and movies are the most watched on the app each day. They don't give actual figures, but since I'm not a TV exec or buying advertising time on the show, it doesn't really matter. I do know that the ads have gotten younger since leaving network tv, before I switched to the commercial free version, I never saw one ad for pharmaceuticals.

Yesterday's scenes with Doug and Julie made it seem like they knew this was his last time on camera (as opposed to Bill becoming sick and unable to film additional scenes). Maybe that's just how the timing worked out.

by Anonymousreply 141July 12, 2024 7:51 PM

I had that same feeling, R141. I don't have the long-term connection with the show others might have, so my experience with Doug is where he's been the past few years. But I always had the impression he was a nice guy.

Unrelated, I love how the show is playing out Li Shin's death. At the time he was killed, it felt unexplained, and then Gabi was in jail for it. Having Li back for the sequence is making me realize that I liked the character more than I thought.

R162 FCF did not jump at the chance to come back in 2021. That's why we have Hot Sonny. Hallelujah, Praise the Lord.

Even when FCF did that one-episode Skype thing the previous year, he vetched about the fact that he had to shave off his beard. This translates to I'm not camera-ready and TPTB think I look too fat with facial hair. Plus, Days-Peacock isn't gong to pay his travel-accommodation expenses from Swampland.

If Freddie wants his job back, he needs to be camera ready which means, probably 50 pounds lighter.

He doesn't seem willing to loose those 50 pounds and keep them off, as he proved over and over again during his last five years on the show.

Just when I thought the show was getting better, today's episode fell like a thud.

Connie, in small doses was mildly diverting but she has already overstayed her welcome. She's as annoying as the "cat nurse" became rather quickly, and we now have the threat of her return down the road.

The most annoying feature today was the overuse of flashbacks - something this soap utilizes too frequently, but today really pushed it. It seemed as though 10 minutes of the running time was nothing but flashbacks, using that filter they use that rarely flatters the actor.

In fact, on today's show, we had a flashback less than five minutes after the scene had unfolded.

Stephanie and Bobby/Everett shared a scene in the Salem Inn where he broke things off. A few minutes later when Chad asked her how things were with Everett, we were subjected to the scene we'd just scene all over again. I don't know whether the writers think the viewers are so stupid that they don't remember what they just watched OR the writers are too lazy to write a complete show without the need for these flashbacks. No other soap beats this technique into the ground like DOOL does.

by Anonymousreply 169July 15, 2024 10:17 PM

I agree Connie is way over the top. I don't think this can drag out too long as she talks too much and is sloppy. I think NUGabi raised an eye at her today with her "and I won't stab you in the back" comment. And I think my initial impression of NuGabi was off - I am kind of liking her at the moment.
