The timing of this is interesting. When I have watched a video of a Paley Center discussion with another daytime show, the representatives from the show have included long time cast members AND producers or writers. It is interesting to me that the list here includes ONLY cast members and no one behind the camera. Obviously, it would be odd to include Maria Arena Bell or the Hamner man as a panelist in light of what has happened in the past week. Likewise, it would be strange to include the Phelps woman or anyone else who is just coming back to work on the show.

I wonder if anyone will attempt to discuss the quality of the writing over the past few years? The show really has been in a state of turmoil and download decline since Bill Bell left. I wonder if they will discuss the state of this show over the past few years or just limit the entire thing to a “salute to Bill Bell”? Bell clearly should be mentioned but failing to address anything from the recent past would seem a little dishonest.

Bill Bell didn’t leave, honey – he died of Alzheimers in 2005. He retired in the late 1990s – the show was running very smoothly up until the mid-2000s when Lynn Marie Latham came on board as a consultant, then as Head Writer & Executive Producer. Her reign of terror (canning longtime writers and producers) ended in late 2007 whe she was terminated due to her striking during the 2007/2008 Writer’s Strike, but she wasn’t officially fired until Feb 2008. Then we got Maria Arena Bell, who also wore the double “Head Writer/Executive Producer” hat. We know what has happened since, so we don’t need to go there.

Now that “Y & R” has a separate Executive Producer and sole Head Writer, let’s hope they can whip this show back into shape – from what I see coming up this week, is it any wonder MAB was canned???

This is great news. Y&R surely can creatively regain its footing. As the #1 daytime drama, it can afford to make changes without as much risk as a low-rated program. And too many people want to see success here. It would be good to see on the dais some of those who may no longer be part fothe program but were instrumental in its initial success along with the stars of today. Best of luck! When is the 10,000th episode?

I appreciate the aesthetics of Young and the Restless so much; the sumptuous sets, lighting and upstage flowers, etc…. but would secretly love more location shooting. I’ve always loved that about B&B, seems to add a bit more immediacy and authenticity to the scene. I hope that it something they can integrate, while still maintaining all that is gloriously over the top and fab about Y&R. 🙂

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
