  1. I watched today and found all of the Will/Sonny scenes annoying. The "flashbacks" with them all giddy and laughing through most of their scenes was bad. The wedding scenes were okay but I found the dialogue a bit cringe-worthy at time. Julie and SSH was way over the top it was laughable instead of causing drama. I do enjoy the Lani/Gabi rivalry though. It is one that could have legs if the show wanted to keep it....but then again...I once thought that about Abby/Gabi and now they act almost like besties at times.
  2. Sorry but that is a lame promo! There's no wonder that they can't get people to tune in.
  3. I haven't watched for months and don't even know who some of the younger set are anymore. My first thought when seeing that cast is wow, they need to trim down. I'm surprised they can still have that many. Yes, i'm sure there are several that are recurring and not actually on contract, but still. That's a lot of characters to follow. I'm glad for daytime that they are investing for FOUR YEARS into a show, whether I watch it or not. So much better than DAYS having to fight every year!
  4. I was just reading the MP Companion book that came out after S3 and in it one of the actors ( I forget which at the moment) stated that the producers didn't know what to do with Sandy. One minute they told her to use a thicker southern accent and then the next episode they'd tell her not to use one at all. Something like that. I know her character was always made fun of for that, but I guess it wasn't Amy Locane's fault. She was just taking direction for each ep. Marcia Cross was originally supposed to be one ep. Laura Leighton was a last minute addition as Sydney for a couple of episodes in S1 (after Jane had previously stated she was an only child). Heather Locklear was only supposed to be on for a short stint. All three ended up being written in as "regulars". Clearly, in the early days, they didn't really seem to know what they were doing and were just flying by the seat of their pants.
  5. The first part of that promo with Will and Ciara looks good but the rest is just...bleh. The promo department doesn't do the show any favors.
  6. First novel in my soapy, family saga series is out. Get PRESSING MATTERS here: www.maineauthorspublishing.com/pressing-matters

  7. I remember as a kid watching that storyline and loving it. Okay, except for the part where Brette was inside the cave somewhere, wading through a pond to retrieve a "treasure" from a podium in the middle of it, and when she grabbed the treasure it released snakes from above covering her and the pond. Scared me sh*tless...haha.
  8. I keep trying to get back into DAYS because I do enjoy many of the actors on the show, but the writing just kills me. Ron needs to stop this double character crap: Hattie/Bonnie/Gina (Hope), and "Stefano" (Steve). It's annoying. If you can't find a story worthy enough of these vets other than campy sh*t then you're doing something wrong. Not one of the couples on this show are worth rooting for anymore. Not even his "beloved" Ciara and Ben. As others have said, couples are on to someone else two weeks later, back-and-forth, so how can you invest in anyone? Xander and Gabi running multi-million (multi-billion?) dollar companies is ludicrous. I'm so tired of Dimera and Kiriakis battles over their perspective companies. There is no build up for anything. An underhanded takeover could be great if they didn't switch CEOs every other week as it is. Everyone watching knows that the newest person in charge won't last long...so who cares?
  9. Cecile is my fave character of all-time. I hated her last stint on the show because it didn't seem right (trying to pass Maggie off as Cass's ) even for her. Agreed that it was written very poorly. I too think Cecile would've had to grow up substantially before marrying Cass at the end. How to redeem her? She could have returned to her "true love" Cass and announce to him that she had cancer. He could have stepped in to "protect" her and stay by her side as she battled it. Felicia, Rachel, Donna, etc could have suspected it was just, yet again, some kind of scam to get Cass back and not believe she was truly sick until it was too late and they see the physical signs. She could have shown vulnerability with Cass and her feisty side with her skeptics. With AW going off the air when it did, Cass could have married Cecile in that last episode in order to be by her side without the audience having to actually watch her death onscreen. (Of course, if AW hadn't ended, they could have gone either way. Have Cecile pass away from illness or have (temporary) remission.)
  10. Just listened to that podcast and found it prophetic that even in 1979 Harding Lemay could recognize that network interference was going to be a problem for daytime. I agree, they should give writers the opportunity to write. Then make a change if the stories don't work. Don't hire them to write the show and then tell them what to write. Backwards to me.
  11. I miss this show so much. Laura Leighton's Sydney is a top-five character of mine of all-time. For the longest time I wanted her to cougar me and then I realized that she wasn't older enough to be a technical "cougar". I was so disappointed. LMAO. She's still hot to this day. It's too bad that Thomas wasn't there or Heather either. Those two are a big part of the series.
  12. As much as I like both Kristian and Stephen, I don't see this storyline bringing in viewers. It's almost cartoonish and is what soaps tend to be made fun of for. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I miss drama and conflict born out of relationships. Not cartoonish, borderline sci-fi stuff. If I wanted to watch that, I'd tune into the Syfy network. (And, I do watch that network occasionally. I'm not saying it's bad...just not what I want on a soap.) I guess we can all thank GH for its Ice Princess story back in the day for starting all this crap.
  13. I don't remember SB ever beating AW. Damn....that disappoints me.
  14. So, Ben was given the death penalty? How does this not scream out Todd/Victor on OLTL. ReRon will probably have Ben tied down and being executed for Jordan's death as Ciara cries out her love for him across a window. Then...wham...the phone rings and he's pardoned so they can live happily ever after. I think Casey Moss is doing well with this story of JJ being an addict again. When he and Brady were in the park, I loved how he kept looking like he was going to nod off to sleep while standing up. He did great with his almost suicide story. I'm looking forward to how he does with this. The rest of the TJ stories for me have been meh....
  15. Oh, I do remember that and I loved Cecile! I guess I just wasn't thinking. For some reason I thought the departures were earlier.
