Phelps at AW immediately replaced Justin Chambers with her pal from GL Kevin McClatchy and look who now has the biggest last laugh? Other AW alum at Y&R include Ricky Paul Goldin as Victoria's notorious stalker Gary Dawson and Diego Serrano as the first Diego.
With their marriages going through something, I imagine it will not be too long before Cane and Sage meet up with each other. Yes imagine that!
I still wish Sheffer hadn't squandered Benjy at this point.
Thanks for the info on Chad alas I stopped watching Days altogether in late 2011/early 2012 between the preposterous twist of Sami sleeping with EJ out of grievance and making it seem like Roman/Marlena/John 2.0 and of course the EJ paternity twist god MarDar were terrible writers. I only watched briefly last year just to see how EJ and Sami would go out before I quit again until this past September.
Trying to catch up with Days as I was fan who went astray after the awful 2011 reboot but I've been watching the past few weeks now:
It was actually nice to see Martha Madison today she looked good and I'm curious as to how this Shawn and Belle story will play out.
The DiMera story is just ridiculous I'm at a loss what to think about.
I guess I didn't realize til I looked it up but I didn't realize Chad had been recast since I last watched. How do you guys like this Chad compared to the previous one? For some reason I always associate Chad as being Will's first boyfriend that never happened.
As a former AW viewer it certainly is weird seeing Jensen Buchanan all washed up playing a judge who once did the nasty with Victor. We've already seen Mark Pinter, wonder how far off Kale Browne and Linda Dano are from making cameos on the show.
The writing for Lily is insulting and shameful. I've never been a Khalil fan but she always does her best work away from Cane so I feel sorry she has to play some discommoding, misogynistic crap with this Joe/Lily/Cane triangle. I'd rather have Lily be in the vein of Olivia rather in the vein of Jennifer Horton or Lily Walsh at their worst.
I wish Cynthia Watros had been able to stay on as Kelly, she'd probably still be on the show.
Just a question, if Hunter Tylo had successfully left B&B in 1996 to join Melrose Place what would have been done with Taylor? Recast? Brooke was having her meltdown at the time and they were testing out Ridge and Lauren.
Well the "classic" episode aired today ended up being last year's Thanksgiving episode where Nick went on a bender got stuck in the bear trap and fantasized about Amy. Grace, Phyllis, Sharon and Avery before Sage saved him. 5 minutes I decided to change it because I realized I could live without seeing that ep again.
To summarize in simplicity both storylines involved lead heroines having torrid affairs with sleazy crooks and when it came down to them both saying no to getting further involved they both were brutally raped.
Remember Diego/Emily on ATWT and Richard/Jane on Melrose? I get the bad vibe that Pratt is taking a page from both those storylines in a way for Joe and Lily. Certainly it would not be beneath Pratt to pen that type of story again.
There is also not much in the way of satisfying payoff and little resolution to storylines. First we had only a handful of people finding out about the truth of the Marco/Jack swap. Then they dangled Ian, Patty, and Chloe in front of us with little in the way of having a point or a follow-up(Chloe's "Hazelnut" anyone?). Now we have Neil. Hilary, and Devon just oh so neatly agreeing to sweep the horrendous debacle under a rug.
Next I suppose we'll see Sage start to turn psycho and pull a Chloe and end up kidnapping her own baby.
