    Can't believe that they're letting Mark go although I don't know why I'm surprised - after they eliminated Lucas and let Bryan Dattilo go,I guess this shouldn't be a surprise. As far as I'm concerned though the Melanie and Nathan storyline are the only reason I watch the show....

    I think days is making a HUGE mistake! I think it is refeshing to have such a young male doctor in the show, and i think he has soo much potential in his character! he and melanie now has a chance to be together!! the writers should stick with that rather than letting him go. if they have to let some one go it should be Philip. his character is soo boring now. I wish days would change their minds!

    I have been watching DOOL for over 40 years and in the past few years it's gotten worse than ever before. They have let go of some of the best actors and kept some of the worse! It's gotten to where i don't even want to watch it anymore. Now they are letting go of another good Horton. Come on Days what the heck is wrong with you? Get some new writers or something.

    I think that Nathan leaving is sad loss considering this show started with the Horton family. I think that his character had so much potential! I was happy that maybe he and Melanie would finally be together, but I guess that won't happen. Who will they pair her with since I am reading that Philip (I prefer her with Nathan) will be leaving too, which is also a great loss since he has a child and one on the way (unless they recast him with different actor, but I prefer Jay as Philip). I am also sad that Stephanie will be leaving as I was looking forward to more interaction with her and Melanie (you always need some enemies on these soaps). Where is this show going? It's almost at the not watching stage, but we'll see. I think that they need to bring back some old characters...Belle, Shawn, Mimi, Max, Chelsea, John, Marlana and bring back some Horton's to create some story lines. The story lines have been way too boring and ridiculous lately and I think that everyone is tired of the Dimera/Brady rivalry (or at least I am).

    I can't believe they are letting Mark Hapka (Nathan) I have been watching days of our lives since I was a kid with my grandma and You think they would do what they could to keep the best actors but they don't. Why bring carrie back, boring...Melanie and nathan and phillip add some excitement to days. Somebody needs to hire a new producer and writer.
    Bo and hope are boring too. Melanie, add's alot to the show to but jennifer shouldn't have come back either boring again. I love brady and rafe, along with james scott, i think if they get rid of any more great actors and actresses the show will surely be off air. Ratings will continue to go down. I liked ariana too. wtf days.

    It is an absolute shame that Mark Hapka is leaving Days. While he has not had the greatest storyline lately, there was so much potential for Nathan and Melanie. Part of the reason, I liked the two as a couple is because of Mark and Molly. Their chemistry was undeniable. Not sure what those in charge at Days are thinking as they continue to blow great storyline opportunities -- EJ & Sami, Mel and Nathan, Brady and Nicole and Philip and Chloe. No real reason to watch the show in my opinion.

    Just want to voice a complaint about Nathan being written off. My friends and I were really hoping that he and Melanie were going to be the next super-couple, having their problems through the years but always finding their way back to each other. Instead the writers are happy just having everyone running around with everyone else and nobody settling down and being happy. Nathan and Melaine was our favorite combination of all the current characters. From what I can gather through various web sights the writers are the reason Mark is leaving because they were not going to let him and Mel finally be together. In my opinion they should rethink this. The ratings are not the greatest already and I am sure we are not the only ones who wanted a new super-couple. This combination is what we have been waiting on for about a year. The other crap going on is just passing the time until Mel and Nathan got together. I hope the writers at least consider letting them get together and than MAYBE Mark will stay.

    I agree, been watching this show for many many years. Writers have been an issue for a long time and now that they are just coming up with a good plot they fire the guy...I am done watching this show. If they aren't off the air in the next year or two I'd be very surprised. They have gotten rid of way too many of the fav's, and now that Jay Johnson and Shelly Hennig are gone too there's not much let. Ejami story once again has gone on too long.....
