I just learned that Hogan Sheffer has been fired, along with most of his writing staff.
I know Hogan wasn’t perfect, but for a little while after Ed Scott came on board, they seemed to have reached a good working relationship. I even felt the plots were improving—the Ford Decker story had better follow-through and even a fairly good payoff. And with Hogan there was always the seed among the chaff–the occasional brilliantly written scene that kept me hanging on (and made his poor plotting even more frustrating).
Dena Higley started under Sheri Anderson and worked for Days for twenty years as an associate writer. That sounds good, but she was headwriter very briefly in 2003 (before being fired) and has been called JER-lite. She is also held in contempt by OLTL fans, where she was headwriter until recently. She was fired, by the way.
I always said that my “line in the sand,” what would make me stop watching, would be if JER came back. Is that what I’m getting?
I know I should say I’m going to wait and see, but I’m very, very scared about this. I don’t want to see my favorite characters slowly destroyed.
Why, Kenny, why?
