Lessons Days of Our Lives Can Learn from Australia’s Neighbours

Days of Our Lives recently got renewed for a record-breaking 55th season. Despite some hiccups, NBC's longest-running soap is going strong, but it could be even better. Across the globe, Australia's Neighbours will turn 34 in March 2019, and while the two soaps reflect two vastly different cultures, there are some things Neighbours does well that Days of Our Lives could learn from. One significant difference between the two soaps is that Neighbours is far more focused on family relationships. That is a shame, as Days of Our Lives' backbone used to be the relationship between Alice Horton and her large extended family. DAYS is starting to get back to its roots in this area, but there's more work to be done. Family members are too often missing or absent from storylines on DAYS. For example, where was Jennifer when JJ was struggling with suicidal feelings at the end of 2017, and why was JJ shuffled off-screen during Christmas of 2018? And Julie's fall should have had major repercussions for just about everyone in Salem. Related: Days of Our Lives: Who Should Follow In Alice Horton's Footsteps Many of DAYS' storylines are based on people not being aware when something is wrong with their family members or not relying on family when they should. The whole Sonny/Leo mess is a prime example of this, and it happens that Neighbours is airing a similar storyline right now that doesn't make these mistakes. One of the biggest weaknesses in DAYS' version of this storyline is that Sonny and Will never thought to tell Victor about what was going on even though part of Leo's blackmail involved forcing Sonny to let him move into Victor's house! It made zero sense. Victor is supposed to be an all-powerful former mob boss who would do anything for his family. And then to add insult to injury, when Victor did find out, he told Sonny to go along with Leo's blackmail for no apparent reason. In contrast, on Neighbours when Delaney Renshaw blackmailed the object of her affection (ironically, also named Leo!), the first thing he did was go to his father Paul, who is a similar character to Victor, to ask for help. It turned out that Paul couldn't easily get him out of the situation because Delaney also had some serious dirt on him, but at least Leo tried! And when Paul couldn't solve the problem, there was a real explanation for it, rather than using the moment as a plot device to get Paul onto wrong side. DAYS could really benefit from creating similar logical obstacles for their characters rather than ignoring family ties or having powerful characters suddenly and randomly become powerless to suit the plot.

Channel Zero Canceled After Four Seasons at Syfy!

Syfy is parting ways with its lowest-rated drama series. The unlucky show in question is horror anthology Channel Zero, which has been canceled after four seasons on the cabler. Series creator, Nick Antosca confirmed the news with a lengthy statement on Instagram. It reads as follows: CHANNEL ZERO: CANCELLATION NEWS After 4 seasons, Channel Zero is no more at SYFY. I loved making this show and I would have loved to do more… but I can’t complain too much about doing 4 stories I loved with people who I loved working with: People like our writers, our actors, our extraordinary crew, the artists who contributed, our editors and post team, our composer Jeff Russo, our team at Syfy and UCP. And especially the four awesome directors, Craig Macneill, Steven Piet, Arkasha Stevenson, and Evan Katz. And before all that, the authors of the original creepypasta stories. Kris Straub, Brian Russell, Kerry Hammond, and Charlotte Bywater. I’m deeply grateful for this experience. Especially to everybody who watched and talked about and wrote about the show. There are stories we didn’t get to tell and creatures you didn’t get to see, but still might. 🍽🐈 Meanwhile, the first 3 seasons are currently on @shudder, and the 4th season will be soon. Enjoy. 🤡💀🖤 The cancellation news should come as no surprise given that Channel Zero Season 4 continued the show's descent in the ratings. Channel Zero Season 4 averaged just 265,000 total viewers, and a mere 0.07 rating in the adults 18-49 demo based on live + same day results. Related: Z Nations Canceled at Syfy All told, being the lowest-rated show on the network is likely what made Syfy pull the trigger on the cancellation. The series aired its final season across six nights in October. View Slideshow: 12 Spine-tingling Shows for a Spooktacular Time What are your thoughts on the cancellation, TV Fanatics?
