Diva...Just read on Soaps.com that Joe Mascolo is leaving Days...Noooooooo!!!!! His character is one of the best antagonists in Daytime(& Primetime) history. He is 83 and perhaps he feels it's his time to retire? Bravo to Mr. Mascolo for bringing such a great character to life for the past 30 years!!!
Anonym i have a scoop for you : the new/old writers will make him come back and rewrite stories which is lame imho although i love Stefano/Joe Mascolo..a come back from dead again story for Stefano is ridiculous, it is not like that they will improve their ratings, mark my words.
Re: Anonymous' reply to my initial post: I love Days regardless...I've been a fan for years. I stopped watching between 1997 and 2007 only because I was preoccupied with work and really watched little to no TV and certainly was not going to record TV shows. I was out and about way too much for that. Then, in 2007, I took on a consulting position, was working from home, and was once again transfixed by Days. I guess regardless of all the changes, the shows' core theme is the same and those core families I loved watching when I was a teenager and in college and grad school are all still there which is extremely intriguing to me. I actually don't mind the changes in storylines. Sure, not every change is going to be great, but when a show has been on the air for 46 years, changes are inevitable and I think some changes are very necessary to ensure that the show evolves.
