  • The flashbacks are out of control

    I find that the flashbacks happen too often and the lengths are incredibly long, especially since the scene of the flashback happened a day or two before. It’s getting on my nerves.

    With all these people who don't watch everyday, they have to make sure people know what's going on.

      There's seemed to be a lot more than usual this past week.

        I wonder if they needed to fill up some space since Steve left so abruptly.

          They are super cheap airtime fillers. Days is poor so they throw in tons of recent flashbacks to save money in having to tape less.

            It does help with that, but also it saves the time of having characters overexplain complicated storylines. It’s dependent on writers. Some writers prefer using flashbacks, others prefer characters talking to themselves, others use characters on the outside looking in. They use different tactics.

                I hate it, viewers arent stupid. Not to mention sometimes they have flashbacks of what happened in the same episode. Now that's ridiculous.

                  If they're gonna do flashbacks at all they need to go back & bring them from past show's when DAYS was an awesome show & let the newer viewers know what it used to be! THAT would be worthwhile to watch! Let the vets have memories from then (the real good years) and somehow connect them to today's characters/sl's! THAT would be entertaining IMO & bring continuing drama back!

                    Is this really realistic? Do poeple need to remember ever single little thing that happened? Sicne mnay senes and lines can be repetitive I think you can pick up what's going on withotu flashbacks..from a day or two agp

                      I know what you mean and I agree with you. I think they are putting a lot of Will's flashbacks in to show his memories coming back, and also so that they can insert Chandler back into these scenes. But I agree, there are too many of them and they are way too long.

                        I agree. Will remembering his life is one thing. And having Lucas remember to catch people who didn't see it up on what happened. But we've had extensive flashbacks to things like Eli and Lani taking the time to flirt five feet from where Paul and Kristen fell, leaving Paul severely wounded and Kristen entirely unharmed and on the loose (not that anyone at the Salem PD cares about that). We had a flashback to that entire scene just one day after it happened. That's too much. And it's not the only time.

                          Exactly. The Eli and Lani flashback is what prompted me to write the post in the first place.

                        I noticed it too. It was really bad during the mid 00's practically the whole shows during that era was flashbacks.

                          I don't mind them as I can watch the show faster.
