Just watched Monday's episode. Was mildly disappointed in the Steve/Joe reintro. They should have written a mini medical arc where Joe was in NYC and caught meningitis or other ailment that befalls college kids (anal herpes anyone..just kidding); he's with Steve when it happens and Steve brings him to hospital because he's scared Joe is getting worse and needs Dr. Brady to save the day. Kayla, of course, is furious with Steve, worried for her son and vulnerable and alone during the crisis. Steve is there but she rejects him. The way Steve was actually introduced felt a bit lazy and uninspired; they need to be sensational every day to get viewers to tune in and be connected to the characters. Those Stefano scenes are just weird like a split screen or something; I swear they taped Joe M. separately from Chad. I never enjoy their scenes because if feels as if they're not in same room or Joe's reading fully off the cue cards. Love Billy Flynn but for god's sake, get him out of those leisure suits. There's been an modest improvement in the men's costuming but not yet for Chad's character. Love MaryBeth; she's a fine actress and brought her game to those scenes. Was it me or was there some hot chemistry between Hope and Steve. I loved the way she read him with every line, not putting up with his crap. Shaming him all the way for being a screw up. Nice work KA. Music and lighting so improved! Good job overall Days...
Where's Peter Reckell in all these promotional tweets and photos? He's completely absent. Was he just a short term return? There are no posts at all of him on the set like they're doing with Mary Beth and Steven.
I thought Star Manning was coming back to play Kaka? So this current actress can go out and compete with Meryl Streep! Lordy Lord Lord.
Valentini needs to hire Michael Cardelle stat. Cute actor in the Kyle role on Days...he'd fit in well with the mobsters.
Wow, the Cullitons got 10 scripts this month. I don't think they (combined) have had that many in one month in years. Where's Ford? She's the veteran on the team. I hope she stays on staff and is writing the 50th.
I'm banking on Tristan returning to GH now that Altman/Passanante are back there. Adam/Chelsea should be at the top of the yearly list; they are gold. Time to dump Mariah, character never worked and there's no chemistry with Kevin.
I find it interesting that Josh Griffith has been silent on twitter since these last two posts. There seems to be no communication between him and Dena on twitter either and she's been posting since their material started airing and confirmed she's back after a short leave at Days. I'm wondering if this partnership didn't last and he's already gone? Just curious... Josh Griffith @tvjoshgriffith Aug 15Embrace positivity.

Why doesn't Fairman or Giddens try to get an interview with him. I personally don't see him lasting at Days but we'll see..
Ok. It's sad but Joe Mascolo needs to retire; these scenes recently where he's reading from the cards reminds me of Ruth Warwick on AMC in her final years. I could deal with it last week in his scenes with Abby at her office; those scenes were so strange but today with Chad...yikes. Nicole and that outfit. NO...all wrong. Please would someone fire Richard Bloore. Eric M. is such a solid actor. Love him as Brady; he should be on four days a week. Today's episode was standard Days, not much different from Tomsell episode. It's sad that they ruined Serena's character. such a great actress and she fits in so well on the canvas...she has the chops of Ally Sweeney.
OMG so after seven months, this is Pratt's end of summer story climax?? Harding. UGH...how uninspired. Noah (can't act) confronting Harding (can't act and looks terrible on TV) was painful to watch. Fake Jack in the bed, bearing his fangs...even Bergman couldn't make it work. The most interesting thing was the female hotel worker's booty. Director Conal O'Brien made sure her ample, and I mean ample, can was prominent in her two scenes and that dress she had on! Again, it was the most interesting thing about the episode; she crackled. The rest was just drivel.
The lighting and costumes have modestly improved. Albert's tweaking so far is good. They have a long way to go though. But I'm watching every day since Caroline's "stroke" Days seems like old fashioned soap right now and that's a good thing.
