I am really looking forward to seeing Ron’s work. “DOOL” has been almost unwatchable the past few months. I can’t understand why the writers and spending so much time on characters that we simply do not care about or have any redeeming value (Jade). The island storyline was poorly executed, with Marlena and John stumbling on the survivors without ever letting the audience know they were searching for them. Eric and Jennifer do not have any chemistry. I think Tripp has a lot of potential, but not as someone who is trying to take Kayla down. Does every young character… Read more »

So true Ray. I have done a 180 concerning Ron. I wasn’t a fan of his during his GH days, but I am curious to see if he can make Days better. …for the reasons you listed above. Maybe Days is a better fit for Ron than GH.

It has to be difficult for these inexperienced actors to read all of the negative comments on social media. I did not say Jade was a bad actress. I just do not understand why the writers give so much story to a character that does not have any family ties to the show’s core families. She is simply Joey’s no-good girlfriend. It has been obvious since the teen scene came on board two years ago that most of the actors needed more training. Fast forward two years, all but Theo and Claire are left (I believe Joey is departing soon).

I don’t understand the reasoning behind elevating and propping up the teen scene. Every show does it, and most times, it is cringe-worthy and long-time viewers do not appreciate it. The teen scene does not bring in new viewers. I have not seen it to this degree, however, where the entire focus of the show has shifted to the teen scene. Not one of them can act. It’s like watching a high school play in the auditorium. Is casting blind, deaf, and dumb? The Young and the Restless is beginning to do it, as well, with the Ashby twins and… Read more »

The show is a train wreck right now. I haven’t watched since Eileen Davidson left. Like Carrie, I was NOT a fan of Ron’s writing while he was at General Hospital; however, the only way to go from here is UP!

With this writer in question, I wouldn’t be so sure about that!….

Very true, Shay; however, the show is pretty much in the toilet right now, and I’m hoping that he leaves his cartoonish theatrics at the door, and focuses on the core values of the show. #fingerscrossed.

Hope springs eternal, dmr! For the sake of diehard DOOL-ers, I send my best wishes that this time is the charm for bringing the show back to its former glory. I know I’m still waiting for that to happen on GH!

Yes, the island story was very much a dud. And the teen scene storyline needs a makeover.

The teen scene needs to take a trip to Castaway Island, NEVER to be heard of again!

Jake Martin

Jake Martin

The problem with doing a ridiculous storyline of becoming stranded on an Island is that (aside from the writing being absolutely atrocious) they REALLY don’t have the sets to make this even marginally plausible – they don’t even have any ocean props and everyone’s hair is perfect and doesn’t even move. At least, when they do a “hospital scene” they can sort of make that somewhat believable to a degree. Plus, this show has absolutely no humor whatsoever. If Tad Martin (played by Michael Knight on All My Children) was adrift on an Island he’d make some joke reference to… Read more »

Agreed, Ray. Ron should really get away from this precipitous Tripp theme.
I am so sick of the teens as it is, the schemes and fiendish plans for Kayla have no attraction….it will fizzle as a flat can of soda.

I love it! He’s teasing just enough to get the audience interested, and he had the great sense to focus his tweet on John and Marlena. I’m very optimistic. Don’t let me down, Ron!

Carrie
Guest

I agree Beth. I didn’t like Ron for GH, but lately I am curious to see what he is doing for Days. Days has been dark and depressing the last few years. On GH, I thought Ron was too cartoon-ish. But I would gladly welcome cartoon-ish or any kind of humor on Days now.

Carrie, I agree. I found Ron’s writing to be cartoonish and immature for General Hospital. However, Days is in the gutter, and there is only way to go from here…UP!

It can’t get any worse. The show is unwatchable right now and in the last 6 months. Its more exciting to watch my tv when its off then the crap stories that Days has had under Higley. I wish it well. I’ve been watching for 30 years.

dmr

The storylines are atrocious. The show is so boring. The recasts, who is in the casting department-Abby, Dario? Good God, are they awful. I always have to laugh when I see Sonny, though. I mean, seriously, one day he is the owner of a coffee shop, then a “club,” and now he is running around town with slicked back hair like a career criminal wannabee. He looks ridiculous.

Jake Martin
Guest
Jake Martin

I agree with that as well – he looks like a Michael Corleone wanna be, waiting to take over the Family business straight out of The Godfather – and frankly, he was more likable when he ran the coffee bar and was happy to see Will. Also, for some reason, and I attribute it to the horrendously awful writing, I don’t even care if he and Paul get together or not – I used to sort of root for them but now, it’s sooo drawn out, and there’s no believable passion between them.

totally excited about the new scripts coming…..cannot wait…..did notice that Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly is bombing in the ratings….maybe NBC will wake up and realize they spent too much money on her and could give some money to Days so they could update their sets and start filming closer to airdate……Days has proven that it has staying power after 50 years of being on the air…..c’mon NBC wake up and devote a little more to a show you know works……a soap fan can dream, right?????

I can’t stand Megyn Kelly either. Seems NBC is realizing what a mistake they made bringing her on. All that money for ratings that are lower than 60 Minutes reruns lol. I read that even Fox News won’t take her back, and Variety put out an article today stating that Megyn Kelly’s star is dimmer than ever.

Shay
Guest
Shay

And a richly-deserved coup de grace it is…Kelly turned her ungrateful back on the audience who made her a star in order to grab for the MSM brass ring, and she has failed miserably. Of course, FoxNews doesn’t want her back…they rebounded quite well with Tucker Carlson in her former slot. Her presence is no longer required!

Celia
Guest
Celia

How right you are, blake. The problem with Kelly is that she spoke/speaks from both sides of her mouth. She always, in my opinion, vacillated and gravitated towards the direction the wind blew on any specific day.
Hypocrite. The more people bash and criticize, the deeper the hole they dig for themselves gets.

Good luck Days fans. Get ready for lots of camp, tons of plot holes and stories with no depth that make no sense. At least you don’t have the added negative of Valentini’s heavy hand and his will to rid your show of vets and make it completely unrecognizable.

Michael (not Fairman)

I have to disagree, at least in part. I think everything you’ve listed is a valid criticism of RC’s time on GH, but it does not tell the whole story. He also did some things successfully at GH: he took an incredibly dark show and added light and humor (though I do agree with you that the humor, especially the camp aspect, got out of hand in the second half of his tenure), and for a while (until ABC panicked and changed its mind), he succeeded in steering the show away from its two-decade-long mob focus and balancing the mob… Read more »

Many problems do still exist on GH and they fall to Frank and Jelly are not very engaging storytellers. But the one component that is gone is an extremely incoherent narrative, that is the technical writing and that is Ron. The camp is gone too and while Frank allowed it, that was the actual writing as well,

JMER

I mostly agree with you Michael, although I found his first year and a half at GH less engaging for sure, and especially about whose fault the latter part of his tenure can be attributed to: very likely ABC/Disney and there are plenty of facts to back that up (too many to properly call out here), but I am looking forward to seeing how his first days at Days go to further support those facts. I expect that FV is responsible for a few of the GH problems during his tenure as well, but I didn’t watch OL so I’d… Read more »

Well, MB, your post points out how great DAYS could actually be:

Ron isn’t working with Valentini, whom could’ve caused many plot holes and stories without depth. Ron’s tweet seems to indicate he’s for vets. And Sheri Anderson, a former headwriter from the glory DAYS, is acting as story consultant…implementing the history of characters she has known for decades.

Give DAYS a try!

For the most part I enjoyed his work on OLTL.. He wrote for vets, honored show history, and kept the show moving with twists and turns. His work on GH was a totally different animal. He destroyed legacy couples, reduced some veteran charactets to non-entities, and most of his stories featured characters who were altered by plastic surgery or masks or replaced by doppelgangers. There was no emotional depth to any of his stories, he killed off AJ for no reason, and by the time he left GH he was completely out of control and GH had record low ratings.… Read more »

Very well put, Jenny!…GH was totally ruined under the Cartini regime and it has never recovered. So good luck to this soap, it will need it!

Can you please describe the “gay” vision you mentioned? How does it go with shallow and narcissistic?

It’s Frank, not the writers, who make hiring decisions. After writing a believable way for AJ to return, Ron is to blame for Sean Kanan’s departure for the cracks about SK’s weight and the character sinking back into the tired alcoholic plot line.

Shay

And don’t forget that revolting “PickleLila” storyline, Steve! AJ—and especially Sean K.—were served up one repulsive indignity after another during his sadly-abridged final(?) GH stint.

Ron is modern and a brave writer, the master of mystery twist & turns surprises/shockers and he has humor great humor. I miss the laughs!

Generally, I like Ron’s work – but he is big on Big Explosive Umbrella stories that ultimately don’t really add up.. he’s amazing on the build up, not so great on the climax/closure. I returned to OLTL because of his writing and returned to GH because of the first year of his work… but then .. well, I don’;t know if it was his writing or if ABC brass interferred but the rest of his time on GH devolved into some seriously awful stuff (including and especially the destruction of Luke Spencer with the “I am not Bill Eckert” storyline…… Read more »

I can name an entire list of so-called GH “talent” that I would love to see Ron “poach” for DOOL…like all those ineffectual newbies and intrusive “gets” from other daytime shows that were brought on to usurp the canvas from the true legacy characters of Port Charles. (Although, by all means, take NLG’s Alexis, please!!!! And Sonny, too….)

Steve
Guest

@Shay

Sonny was actually palpable under Ron (probably why MB didn’t like him). He played supporting in many stories and the character was finally forced to pay for a crime (albeit a few months in Pentonville).

@Jacob
There’s been no mass exodus between shows. If there was, that’s an Executive Producer’s doing, not the head writer. But yes, let KC take Howarth, Easton, Buddig and Stafford if he can afford them.

Shay
Guest
Shay

@Steve….It’s true that Sonny did actually find himself biding his time (and cooling his heels) in “Club Pentonville” for an all-too-brief duration, but he was still in the frame for plenty of peripheral storylines whenever possible—which was still too often for a lot of us—since a little bit of Sonny goes a long way! As for your suggestions of whom should go to Days, I’m with you except for Easton…I love him even though it seems that the GH regime has yet to figure out how to do this actor justice in any role they can concoct. “Tis a real… Read more »

I Phideaux, I respect your opinion but I don’t believe Ron is anything like Douglas Marland…Douglas Marland was a masterful story teller which and to me the only other two writers that can match Douglas is William Bell and Agnes Nixon which I miss all 3 terribly. I can only say I only turned into OLTL every once in a while and could not watch how Ron wrote GH but I am willing to start watching DOOL again to see how he does…I know a lot of people are complaining about Y&R and B&B, but I am loving Y&R again… Read more »

To be honest, I never watched OLTL when Ron wrote it. But, being on GH when he came to us, I was struck by the interlocking storylines, use of history to weave the story and by his rooting of story in family. Certainly, there were some clunker moments, but having been in this biz for a loooog time, I have been struck by a few talents – Henry Slesar on Edge 77-80; Marland’s World Turns turnaround; Harding Lemay AW 1978-1980; Pam Long – end of Texas and her first year of Guiding Light.

Ron’s tenure at GH can be described by Dickens’ classic line “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times”…

The good: the show was lighter, balanced. A respect for show history. Cliffhanger and water cooler moments.

The bad: reliance on over-the-top plot lines, a bit too much camp, twitter feuds. Fluke and Denise Demuccio.

We will probably learn the judge who put Holly into foster care is working for Deimos or being blackmailed by him or whatever the case. Someone behind the scenes at Days was in love with Deimos; inserting him everywhere. When in doubt how to round out a story, insert Deimos. Ugh, the over exposure.

Well, scuttlebutt has it that Deimos dies; but not before drugging everyone—some weird scenes on the way.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
