5-8 "Brighter Days"

We're back to S5 episodes this week, as the drama surrounding the Taylor family continues. Once you've heard "Brighter Days," please send us your thoughts on the show, using these questions to help if you want (note that one or two of them contain spoilers!).
  • Was Haley's storyline a fun part of this show? Did it fit in the episode despite the more serious story with the Taylors?
  • Did you like hearing a "Brooke and Luke running" scene? What message stood out most from their conversation? (single version only) 
  • Did you appreciate the references to the Tom Richter storyline? Do you think the connection made between Joan and Tom was helpful? (single version only) 
  • As far as salvation scenes go in DGL, in terms of writing and acting would you consider this episode's example to be one of the best or one of the worst? Do you think Mary did a good job bringing Joan to the right point?
For your review to be included in podcast #68, you must get it in to us by 2PM (MST) this Tuesday! Oh, and once you've heard 5-8, you might want to read Brooke's journal entry that goes along with the episode (just like the above questions, it contains spoilers).


  1. when's the podcast 65 and 66 coming

  2. When Dave has the time to edit them. :-) Podcast #65 should hopefully be later this coming week, with #66 maybe a week or two after that?

  3. I was just dumb enough to open Brooke's journal entry before I've listened to the episode. :P
