Hey, some of us guys like a little romance too…now if i can only find me a rich sugar momma…lol

Sounds intriguing, I just wish Corday & Co. would put a little romance in my favorite Days couple’s life……Reunite John and Marlena already

I agree…Days could use a little romance…too much gloom and doom recently!!!

I want to ask a question can anyone name me ONE couple on any of the four soaps that are a true romantic couple? I mean two people that love respect and nourish each other that is what I want to see.

Years ago on Another World their was a scene with the character of Rachel/played at that time by the wonderful Victoria Wyndham and she was talking to her mother Ada she was estranged from her husband Mac Cory/played by the wonderful Douglas Watson her mother said you need to move on with your life and she said my life is Mac! I still tear up thinking about that my dears that is what made soap operas great we have strayed so far from that to me it is sad. Yes I know we are in another generation but we still love romance. Give me Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White all day long! Ok rant over!

No signs of slowing down? Is Corday really the only one not realising how much he is hated right now and has been for over a year? Why do you all keep pretending everything is ok with DAYS?

Be nice if they would have reruns of AMC and OLTL….

Our future is with Ken Corday!!!

Hey, thats what the Days cast said back in the late 70s before he fired most of them…lol

If they were to show reruns of the old soaps you would see how Daytime Soaps have fallen. We are now into gimmicks, mobs, villains , baby switches, mental illness, alcoholics , the walking dead that never die, over the top screaming.. Did I miss anything? Sad times ! 🙁

The only near romantic couple i can think of is Y’s Micheal and Lauren…Lauren may be a cheater but this is the only couple i find nearest to being romantic…i miss Mac and Rachel, Steve and Alice(and the house he built for her) on AW…i miss Doug singing ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The World’ to his beloved Julie at Days…they all had their problems but they usually found their way back to each other…well, maybe Steve and Alice didnt…there was some violence but not like it is today…maybe its the lack of romance and so much darkness and violence as the reason there is only four soaps left today…sad, isnt it!!!

The only couple right now I can think of– as dull as they might be are Dylan and Avery– they aren’t really romantic in the classical sense– but they do love, nourish and respect each other– but whether that will last now ex-hubby is now in town is anyone’s guess. My second runner up would still be Lauren and Michael– the whole cheating thing was a blimp on what was one of the most stable soap marriages of all time– and the fact they worked it out, unlike some soap couples, is a bonus.

But you’re right —romance in soaps has been replaced by the hook up– hitting the sheets is more important than wooing–

Romance takes thought and time– two things in today’s world of trending topics seems to be fading– so it is no surprise we no longer find it in soaps either.

Yep your right just about to sign off forever ! Eileen davidson’s big comeback to Y&R a love potion perfume! Yawn!

OMG, my mother read those magazines when I was growing up– they were part romance, part smut, and part trash–but never dull– and now those stories could be coming to the web—I guess what they say is true, what goes around comes around—-not sure one could consider these stories soap in the classic sense of the word—and if these stories were a bit x-rated in the 60’s I can only imagine what new internet version will be like.

Congratulations, Ken Corday and all the folks at Corday Productions! I am sure Mr. Corday’s parents would be VERY proud of all he has done with what they left to his care. I know I am both inspired and filled with admiration at what Mr. Corday has accomplished. Much continued success.
