Love It!!!!!

I like that Y and R continually updates their opening yet keeps it classic while giving the actors credit. GH has done a disservice to actors and characters by having them whizz past in an abbreviated 12 second intro. And Days Of Our Lives totally needs a new opening. The opening sequence of a show should be somewhat indicative of the tone of the show and Days opening is dated, old fashioned and not relevant. They can keep the theme but jazz it up to be uptempo and contemporary. They can keep the hourglass…but as the sands begin to fall…that can zoom in on character/actor clips. Like As The World Turns used show clips as pieces of the world….the grains of sand could actually turn into shots of the actors. Tbe 50th year anniversary would have been the perfect time to unveil an exciting dynamic new opening as this show struggles to stay on the air. I get Ken Corday likes the traditional aspect of the show….but it needs a refresh and to give some homage to the actors.

It seems that only the women are given props in their opening credits: diamonds for Melody Thomas Scott, candles for Christel Khalil, champagne flutes for Eileen Davidson, roses for Melissa Ordway, and whatever that was for Mishal Morgan.

Agggghhhhhh!!!!! Too similar to Bold and the Beautiful. And I don’t really like that they ended it with “the mystery woman”.

Is that Michelle Stafford in the dressing gown? The mystery woman you mention seems to have the same body type as Stafford and she walks like her too.

A few characters such as Daniel Goddard could be eliminated from the list. He is a lousy actor, just can’t see him in a romantic role with a woman.

Tomas Torquemada
Tomas Torquemada

He’s definitely grown on me. But like so many characters, he literally has no story or a story so tiny it’s meaningless. (Ashley did nothing these last three years, Abby is down to nothing, ditto Noah, Jill finally has a story after an Ashley-length time in the wilderness, anyone remember Kevin….)

Scott

kind of blah…same ol same ol….like the storylines right now…..i’m trying really hard to make it through an entire episode without fastforwarding, but find it so difficult. I know I told myself to give it six months to see what Sally could do with the show…but it is sooooo boring right now….not one sl keeps me interested….i’ve even started watching Days again, which has slowly improved and awaiting the head writing of Ron Carlivati…..do something soon, like bring Sheila Carter back and have her wipe out the entire town…..or even Daisy and Ryder…..something, please!!!!!!!!

you know maria arena bell was the best writer for that show , it had action with big story arcs that kept you entertained . viewers want these type of stories with that pace and rhythm nowadays . i loved when ashley was gaslighted by adam , when diane was killed , the ricky williams story , sharon skye the volcano and sharon on the run , harmony ( debbie morgan ) and genevieve ( genie francis ) , love the patty and emily identity thing especially when emily ended up in the psychiatric hospital instead of patty , fans complained about sharon and victor but bill bell did eric and brooke , jill and phillip , jill and stuart .

Lol. Um…sorry to say…you are definitely in the minority on loving Maria Arena’s work. I will give her some props though. I loved some of her early work! Bringing back Patty finally….with an amazing actress and imaginative writing was soap brilliance. Except for killing Colleen….I loved every part of the Patty saga. And she finally brought back Nina’s long ago son. Many of her plots started out promising but then devolved into crap! By the time she was gone, the show was a complete mess. And to all the viewers who complain the show is now “boring”….you need to keep quiet!! This IS the classic soap you have been clamoring for. This is CHARACTER DRIVEN storytelling….and that is a catch phrase everyone asks for on soaps. When Bill Bell wrote…the show was mind numbingly boring most days….until he was writing a climax of one of his notoriously drawn out storylines. Sally has been a breath of fresh air! Characters act like real people again! Not everything is life or death. Every scene is not played for constant misery. I love that characters have multiple story threads and relationships. I love random charaters meeting at the bar and catching up. I think Lily and Sharon should become besties….because Shaaron and Lily’s late mom were. I am a lifelong Sharon/Nick endgame believer…..but why not try Sharon with Neil while Nick diddles Chelsea? A mature redemption story would be bracing to watch. I love that Sally writes basic human life……without rape and murder and baby switches and children dying and couples constantly divorcing. I like watching a big budget sweeps disaster story….explosions, storms, trainwrecks, serial killers etc. They bring a sudden energy to a show. But soaps are not that….never have been that….and never could be that. When it is normal, beloved characters placed into occasional extraordinary circumstances…it is thrilling to watch.

i m so many episodes behind i wont catch the new opening on tv so thanks for posting it online!
y n r has been a chore for months now…. nick/ chelsea is gross, dylan bailing on his family because some b level petty thug knows his identity is laughable, lily and cane is always horrible unless lilys catfighting with hilary.. get rid of devon and cane and get lily and hilary to fight over billy! jason thompson can make anything work..except co-parenting reed against victoria which was a dud from the beginning. speaking of billy , why hasnt chloe been sniffing around since he may be bellas real dad?!.. her and kevin were boring the 4th time around.. the eight time is too much. and lastly the contimued waste of the amazing eileen davidson now with some techie is just criminal…. eileen give it up and just return to days who always appreciates that you should be the star of the show!

I peeked in at work and Heather saw it and said;
They look like Vanity Fair Ad Models .. lol

Now, when I see the opening I’m going to see a Vanity Fair ad….. hmm but for what? perfume? ahh Liquor (they drink, every day lol)

Like it overall, but yeah, it was way past time to get rid of the walking mystery woman (Michelle S). Puzzled as to why they kept that element, doesn’t really go with the new look.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
