    There are several actors on that cover who should be back for the 50th anniversary, and at the top of the list are Stephen Nichols, Charles Shaughnessy, Patsy Pease and Peter Reckell, if only for a short time. I know money is tight but they’ve got to let go of some of the newer characters who aren’t working out and use that money to hire back these actors, even if it’s only for a brief arc. A show where Serena, Melanie, Paige and Ben are front burner is a show that will remain fourth out of four soaps in the ratings and that will be inching closer to cancellation.

    What about Wayne Northrop, Beth? My grandmother loved him. She always compares him to the present Roman, Josh Taylor, whom she says could never fill Wayne’s shoes….LOL.
    You and I must think alike….those last four characters you’ve mentioned have not arisen any interest, nor have gotten a WOW out of me. They are the most blah, insipid, and lackluster characters on the soap, which is dumbfounding, since I loved both of them previously. What happened? Other than having sex with two idiots, what do they do? One goes around, obsessively trying to switch elephant statues…the other, with the non-descript, alien haircut, stands around in the halls of Salem hospital looking like she does not belong there, stupefied.
    I have been chanting the same litany for months……Theresa and Nicole are the most captivating, fascinating, gripping, multi-faceted and attention getting personalities on the show……USE THEM.
    Eve could be up there also if she were given the role she deserves. It is a shame to what lowly status TPTB have reduced her. I also love, love, love Kate…what a woman! She always keeps me on my toes. Paul and Sonny are also favorites of mine.
    Someone up there in the soap “Royal Court” needs to take notice and listen to the fans.

    Josh Taylor will always be Chris K. to me…he might have made a fine Roman but tptb never gave him the material to shine and make the character his own!!!

    Kacey replied

    Why aren’t Doug and Julie on that cover? They were Days’ first super couple?

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    They shouldve been up there…Doug and Julie were the hottest couple of the 70s and kept the ratings high for many years plus are the only soap couple ever featured on the cover of Time Magazine…what a slap in the face to exclude them!!!

    Carolyn replied

    I completely agree with your selections about those who should return — I would include anyone on the cover they can possibly get.

    In addition, I sadly agree with you about those who need to take a step back from featured story lines. Those story lines are also wasting excellent actors who should be given newer, more interesting stories.

    Beth replied

    I’m glad you said “anyone on the cover they can possibly get” because I left out Matthew Ashford and didn’t mean to do that. I love Jack Devereaux and miss Jack and Jen so much!

    It actually pains me to say this, but unless DOOL can figure out what to do with Kassie DePaiva other than having Eve have sex with her daughter’s boyfriend and constantly talk about Paige, I don’t know that KDP is being used the best way she could be. She’s a talented actress and has a huge fan following but this version of Eve is a flop because of the writing. Now if Shane and Kim returned, even for a short time, every now and then, I could see Eve having a place on the canvas. But as of now, Eve Larson is not working for me.

    Patrick replied

    Kassie DePaiva was wasted from the getgo

    I thought she had some spark with Greg Vaughan at the very beginning… but they nixed that

    the only way I see this… is if… they brought back Peter Blake… and he hooked up with Eve… and therein Eve could reign… if she could get past Stefano….

    I could just spit… at Jennifers histrionics… JJ is a grown man… ship Paige off to Stanford.. and either WRITE Eve and JJ unlike Ava and Morgan (GH)… or cast a man for her

    it’s a danged shame DOOL has nosedived so fast in the space of one year… and yeah, that’s not unlikely… look at Y&R

    DAYS wasted so much time in and around the Brady, Eric, and Daniel… who are dullards these days

    PS: Wayne Northrop, Charles Shaughnessy and Patsey Pease would do wonders for the show…. I keep saying… a recast of Andrew… for Abs

    Carolyn replied

    Kassie DePaiva is most definitely being underutilized. I’m very disappointed at the story line she has been given. In addition, I find the way the character, Jennifer, is being written as an irritating helicopter parent. I hope both KD and MR get better stories soon.

    Leo replied

    Could have done without that homophobic witch Melissa Reeves on the cover. Think I’ll skip buying this one.

    I am trying to understand why would days and Soap digest allow this special anniversary edtion book be release in March and not at the very end of October are the first week of November, I know it is their 50th year being on air but it should have been relase around the time I stated it being release later in the year would have had special meaning to days and it devoted fans more at the time 50th is due. I may be wrong but this may be days last year come shotly after making 50th it is something about how they rush this special edtion to come out unless they will be doing and bigger and better special edition later in the year, I just find this to be suspect of worst things to come of days.

    Reply

    Rodd replied

    Sandy, I would suspect it’s a money/marketing thing. DAYS is very suave about merchandising the show: coffee table books, t-shirts, etc. It seems to me that since the article said this was the first of many other things to come that they’re trying to spread out the 50th anniversary stuff to build up the hoopla about the show. Not sure starting this early is going to do it. By the time the actual anniversary arrived in November, the SOD mag is going to seem like old, old news that’s missing half a year of history. I would have liked something closer to the dates you mentioned, October, too.

    I stopped watching Days ten years ago. Sorry, none of those ppl on the cover will get me to tune back in. It’s about the writing, and not the character returns for me. The soap needs more compelling storylines. Where is the spectator? Who is in charge of the ISA these days? Where is the next Stefano Dimero? Answer these questions and I will definitely tune back in.

    I really love your idea of Stephen Schnetzer, ex- cass winthrop from Another World to show up in DAYS for the reason you stated

    if not a villian… a business tycoon… so Kayla would accept him

    plus as a love interest for Mary Beth Evans’ Kayla

    Lou Piikes replied

    That’s why days is always last in the ratings.

    Definitely want to see Stephen Nichols, Wayne Northrop, Patsy Pease along with Charles Shaughnessy, Crystal Chappell, Lisa Rinna, Christy Clark, and Peter Reckell.

    Matt Ashford, to finally and permanently unite Jack & Jennifer. Then Stephen Nichols and Peter Reckell. I’d love to see an umbrella story with the classic supercouples–Steve and Bo trying to rescue Jack, or something similar. Sadly, I doubt the show will do this.

    A story that would have had Steve/Bo leave their families to rescue Jack and tie everything together with the ISA, Shane and Kim… That means the writing would need history. So fitting for a 50 right?

    Denise Alexander as Susan Martin…and let her be Annes mother…Stephan Schnetzer as Steve Olsen…Tina Andrews as Valerie Grant…Corinne Conley as Phylis Anderson…Patti Weaver as Trish…Gloria Loring as Liz…too many to list…bring back 50 former stars for the shows 50th…

  11. Miahappy says:

    So the thing Days is best known for and is shown on the cover of the anniversary issue is the supercouples…something Corday and crew not only refuse to revisit, but have seemingly gone out of their way to destroy. The male part of all the couples (save John) has all but abandoned their wife. Couples aren’t written for any longer, only short term hookups and tawdry sex. There’s no romance left in Salem.

    ENUF ! it’s these juvenile antics that doesn’t bode well for either of them… I know for fact that Jenn Lilly has a maturity and layers to share… hope that missing baby and Brady cache fills her purse

    I’d like to see some with the last name of HORTON back on the show. Where’s Mike? Jeremy? Bill? Is Tommy dead? It doesn’t seem that the Hortons ever had boys to carry on the family name; not too many to choose from. And what about David and Scotty, Julie’s son and grandson. Julie’s brother? Maggie’s girls? Heck, I’d love to see Doug and Julie back more often! How about all the old entertainers from DOUG’S PLACE come back for a hospital fund-raiser? Jerrie, Trish, Robert, Liz…I’m sure I’m missing some. I really do hope they get their act together at DAYS in time for the 50th. I started watching soaps because of Alive Horton. My mom watches DAYS and I remember seeing Alice on the TV when I was supposed to be napping. Fond memories.

I started watching Days in 1990 (their 25th anniversary year) and hope the celebrations planned are even more spectacular. I have a special nostalgic place in my heart for that whole year on Days- the Cruise of Deception, the 25th anniversary, Jack and Jennifer’s budding romance – and can’t wait to see what they do for the 50th. Can’t believe I’ve been watching for 25 years. Hope to watch 25 more!

    Hepburn and Tracy, Bogart and Baccalaureate, Sweeney and Scott; days of our lives had the best and most believable love couple it has been my limited pleasure to observe in a long time. Seldom does a couple pair up and make the love they portray so real and wonderful to watch. To allow them to quit the show and leave the fans who fell in love with both of them is a crime. We loved them, worried about them, and probably for the first time in our lives were able to feel and see what it was like to experience real love. I don’t think anyone who watched and lived them felt that the love shared between them was acted and not being real. The end of this team was a crushing blow to all of us who believed in them and their love. How do you forgive such a painful experience?
