^ If I had to pick I would say AB, but she doesn't remind me of either. I guess like AB she looks like she could be Jen's daughter.

Why didn't they just play out the Eli/David reveal after the funeral.  Those episodes were actually watchable and it would have been more compelling to follow through after all these months dropping Valerie in once every other week; then they cast Eli and have him on for basically one episode until he reveals the secret to Julie at Brady pub - weeks later amidst the horrid Hal/Kayla/Jade hospital scenes.    Ken: this is what you wrought with Dena!  Send her back to Florida to pray with other crazy red state Republicans.  Lawd.  Her crap will make Carlivati's stories look like Shakespeare. And then there are no words for the belly dancing scenes, no words.

 

Brava to Susan Seaforth Hayes for her outstanding scenes though!  What a treasure.

 

James Lastovic.  Why? Why? Why?  Who's his sugar daddy behind the scenes keeping him employed??

Chad/Abby/Dario/Gabi and Nicole/Brady/Deimos are why the show is in the pits right now. Just awful today.

 

At least Marlena, Eric and Jennifer are on. They're the highlights.

For me what's bringing the show down is Ciarra/Claire/Theo. Rafe and Hope. Thank God they aren't on much. I also wish they wouldn't have made Chloe seem so awful in this baby story.  Unfortunately the show is sort of dreary overall. I don't know if it's the lighting or what.

I'd have said Hope and Rafe too but thankfully they aren't on much right now. Thank God for small favors.

I liked how the actor who played Eli after being on Y&R saw his work and went to acting class. I think he's improved, and well the crazy schedule makes it hard to be a "natural" performer.

^ When I'm reminded of the hectic schedule these actors have to deal with I do feel bad for the newbies. They really aren't getting a lot of opportunity to get better on the job.

You know, that's exactly what's sad with the state of soaps today. Like those Valerie/Eli reveal scenes, I *know*  Vanessa Williams can bring it, but they've got to crank out so many scenes in a short time, there's no time to prepare. So each scene starts with dry tears and is given barely a chance to get emotionally deep. When you read actor interviews nowadays (especially those who were part of the genre decades ago), they all stress about how the pace has changed dramatically and there's no time to prepare, rehearse, or think about what you're doing. I know they're trying their hardest to stay afloat and make the show as financially sound as possible, but it's really affecting the overall product. It's strange to be a soap viewer and have to "allow" so much leeway.

WTF is this Chad/Gabi baseball stuff? Awful.

I think it's a fake flashback to when they were in high school? I'm not sure though, I tend to zone out for those scenes.

 

Eli meeting the Horton family was nice, even Lucas was included. I did roll my eyes a little when Julie was explaining to Eli that interracial couples had a hard time back when, as if he didn't know that already, but good enough.

Rafe in a bubble bath? Good Lord! No... Where is Eric's bathtub?

 

Another boring ep. These stories seem to have NO movement. Just....eh...

Looks like they were chem testing Eli and Gabi. But i found that Eli had more chemistry with his second cousin Abby. I hope basic & bland Gabi isn't going to devour yet another male member of the Horton clan.  Oh WOW! Another appearances of Fancy Face's bathroom:rolleyes: With Rafe in the bathtub covered in bubble's.  I'm not a fan of that shady hacky queen RC but his stuff has to be better than DH.
