Sign me up as one of the fans who think this is a good marriage. Ron’s style and DAYS’ flavor are going to be a match like no other. Remember when the show was celebrating it’s 50th and how it turned into “must-see-TV” for a little while? Well, we’re going to be given back that same high dose of excitement and stories that will keep us tuning in every day but swearing at our TV screens because just when we think a payoff is going to happen, Ron will throw in another curve to keep us waiting. That’s what he… Read more »

Of course I’m tuning in! I’m a fan of DAYS, 4ever!

I look forward to Ron’s writing and think I’ll be very pleased! And it would be so mean, mean, mean if other viewers don’t give Ron’s DAYS a chance!!!

As far as I’m concerned, Ron can start (or whatever) by getting rid of that ANNOYING AND PATHETIC WASTE OF SPACE Dario…QUICKLY!!!!!

Later.

This clearly shows the level of desperation all parties have to try to save Days, which is this-close to cancellation. This man is extremely overrated, IMO. I mean, people don’t call him “ReRon” for nothing. His nonsensical, repetitive, cartoonish, plot driven brand of writing is not my cup of tea and it nearly destroyed GH two years ago before he mercifully got fired. Even worse, he can’t take any constructive criticism and takes shots at fans on Twitter who don’t kiss his fanny with gushing praise for his work. That’s disgraceful and highly unprofessional. Hasn’t Days been destroyed enough before… Read more »

Awesome post Nick! Those were my first thoughts too! However…a whole other thread started in my brain that could only be titled A Tale of Two Soaps. I look back to much of his work on One Life to Live with fondness. He wrote for the vets on that show. He honoured and paid homage to the past on many occasions. The show had focus and clarity. He wrote stories of romance for all age groups. Then…came his version of GH, which I still shudder and cringe at. He astoundingly gutted the heart and soul right out of that show… Read more »

I love Ron’s writing and GH is way worse now than it ever was and I thought he did a great job. Every writer and producer and even the actors receive a barrage of “criticism” daily- so good for him taking a few shots in self-defense. Let’s not forget that head writers take their direction from the executive producer and other higher-ups whose demands must be adhered to. Some people learn from their mistakes and continue to change and grow and improve. Others, especially, it seems some of the posters on here- do not. Ron has been given a great… Read more »

I always credited Ron with bringing back the vets to GH which Guza chased off. He “saved” Robin from dying and accommodated the actress’s limited availability by a unique (yes drawn out but not his choosing) kidnapping scheme that brought back old time villains Jerry and Faison. He brought Anna Devane back! And also brought back Bobbie, Scotty, Lucy, Kevin, Felicia, Laura (for limited appearances), Duke, and Lucas. He also helped build up the Quartermaine’s … AJ came back, he wrote a great exit for Edward’s passing, Tracy and Monica were given storylines or at least involved in storylines, Ned… Read more »

The only thing that can save Days at this point
Is to bring back the vets. Peter back as Bo, Shawn b
Belle,and Jack!! I’d love to see Days mend fences
With Vivian and bring her back.

I have full confidence that he will make DAYS exciting again like it was in the 80’s and 90’s. I only got hooked on OLTL and GH when he was head writer so the third time should be the charm for soap fans across the board.

Best of luck to Ron. I would love to see the show get back to “Must see” like when Ben was the murderer a few years back. I hope Ron’s style is to stop the killings and kidnappings. I no longer care about Nicole being kidnapped or being held hostage because it has been done so many times. Here are a few things I would to see: 1. Bring back Phillip and Mimi. 2. Peter Blake would fill the hole that has been missing since EJ left. 3. Carrie needs to be a major character/lawyer in town. I have always… Read more »

I totally agree with your comments about Eve. Kassie DePaiva is a wonderfully talented actress. Ron C. is aware of that from his time at One Life to Live. I hope the Days powers that be allow him to fully expand Eve with Kassie.

I also agree about the sets. I’m so sick of seeing that pitiful town square and the even more pitiful park. Pay for some sets folks!!!!!!!!

So far, not impressed. I don’t need two Marlena’s and now I hear Adrienne will pull double duty. I don’t care if they’re different characters, I don’t like or want it.

I’m excited for this because I’ve been a fan of Ron’s writing for a long time. I was very excited when he came on to GH and turned the show around. Yes, his writing can be over the top sometimes, but one thing is for sure: when he’s writing for a show, it’s never boring. Which is exactly what GH has become under Jean & Shelly, and what DAYS was like up until now. However, how many “Dawn of a New DAYS” promises have been dolled out in the last few years? The same promise was given in 2011, 2012… Read more »

PLEASE rehabilitate Zander!! Paul Telfer is too good an actor (and eye candy) to not play a leading man.

Zander is super hot, and I’m sure Ron C. will write for him just for that reason lol.

I’m unclear if the current shows are written by Mr. C. I hope not because they’re awful. Rehashing 25-year old story lines isn’t the way to go IMHO. 1. we either remember the first go-round. Or new folks are left wondering why this is happening. Every one is said to have a double. But give us a break, no one has an IDENTICAL double.

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
