As much as I want to love this show I just can’t get past the poor production value and bad acting (or maybe directing). Maybe it got better after the first 4 episodes but I couldn’t continue watching.
I would however love to see Dylan Bruce and Kristos Andrews join Days. Dylan would make the perfect Nicholas Alamain and Kristos could be one or Justin and Adrienne’s sons.

Excellent suggestion concerning Dylan Bruce and Kristos Andrews joining the cast of Days. I can see where they would fit seamlessly in the the current storylines, and with all the recent departures, both could prove to be major assets.

Completely disagree with the previous poster’s critique of The Bay. I’ve found this web series to be a breath of fresh air and have immensely enjoyed both the story telling and the acting. Considering The Bay has been nominated for multiple awards, including directing and its ensemble cast, I feel sure I am not the only one who has become hooked on this new series. The latest episode has garnered several positive and complimentary comments on numerous boards/forums across the internet, and I can see why. IMO, it was outstanding. Reading comments elsewhere, it’s obvious I’m not alone in thinking The Bay to be one of the better serial dramas the web has to offer.

The show is 100 times better the last Chapter and a half .The production values as well as the storylines and acting are much improved.imo The show has become must see Web tv .

I liked that episode. Not perfect, but lots happening in the different stories. You seldom get that much action from a soap anymore.

As far as Kristos Andrews joining Days…just say no. He’s way too inexperienced and he’s not very good. I tend to think he’s the weakest link in the show. Doesn’t mean he’d never improve, but he’s not good right now.

Dylan Bruce is okay. I always enjoy Charlie Shaughnessy and Mary Beth Evans. I thought Lily Melgar was pretty good.

whaat you’re crazy kristos andrews is so good i adore him!!!

I am totally hooked on The Bay! With each episode, fans discover more information about the core families…and of course, more questions! Soaptelling at it’s best!!!

The Bay has a wonderful cast. I’ve always wondered what kind of story could be told if all of my favorite soap actors could be involved on the same show…and now, I have my answer! It’s a soaplovers dream! Whether it’s actors we recognize or actors just starting in their profession, all have come together professionally and given fans the ultimate soap.

If I had to find a negative, I wish the length of each episdoe would increase! 🙂 Thanks Gregori for all your hard work!

I will have to give it another chance because I love the cast. I watched up until the crazy guy with the bomb came into the bar. Lily Melgar was terrible in that episode and she totally phone it in! I am going to start watching to again. Thanks guys

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
