  1. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Seen Friday's. Love Kate so much. The Kate/Sami relationship intrigues me, I don't know much about it. Liked the Andre/Kate scenes as well. He is great looking and it's a plus that he can act. Claire and Theo are quite annoying (though Kyler Pettis is hot).

    Just seen Thursday's. Loved Sami's scene at the graveyard, so well-acted. I'm here for Tripp too, so give me some more of him please. The Steve/Kayla/Tripp family seems interesting so I'm hoping to see more of them. Hattie is such an over the top caricature and poorly-acted that it's impossible to take those scenes seriously. Which is a shame as I love Marlena. The Bonnie/Victor stuff is difficult to take seriously too, the Maggie character feels poorly-acted. Chad had a bad week again, but I do really like him and Abi as a couple.

    I definitely think her charisma benefits the character. She feels more real than most of the characters.
  4. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Didn't know who that was, had to look her up Yeah Sami is the one who first got me interested in Days years ago. Sami and Lucas as a pair in the 90s eps I saw were great together. Kate is one of my fave characters from the modern episodes I've seen.

    She captures energy in a scene and makes you feel involved. A lot of the time it feels like watching acting on this show but I don't feel like that about Sami. I think she's brilliant. Thanks @John. Still got last few eps of the week to watch!

    Thanks! Why don't you like Alison Sweeney?
  7. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Alison Sweeney is hands down one of the best actors I've seen on this show. She's head and shoulders above almost everyone. Loved Wednesday's episode. I'm a little confused about Chad and Andre this week, why is Chad annoyed with him? I read on Wikipedia that Andre unplugged his own life support machine in 2007 committing suicide, so how is he back from the dead? Also, that scene of Sami and Lucas looking at Will's lifeless body which was made out to be a flashback, was that a genuine scene that they'd re-shot with Chandler Massey or was it a new scene? Thanks in advance

    Really? I loved Tuesday's ep! Still got Wed-Fri to watch. Having Sami back has been awesome. Her scenes with Lucas were great, those actors bounce off each other so well and have so much chemistry that their scenes are just great to watch. Very nostalgic for me. Paul and Sonny were also great in Tuesday's ep. The Bonnie/Victor thing is hilarious, Maggie has me in stitches with her reaction The only thing I'm not enjoying much is the Eric/Nicole stuff, it just feels a bit boring. The actors were good in those scenes though.

    Yep still am @Hunk Chandler Massey He's a good looking actor but the character seems to just suck compared to most of the other male leads.
  10. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Just watched Monday. I am sick of Brady and his camp acting at this point. I do think the actress who plays Nicole did well though. I am now a fan of Chloe, and I really like Rafe and Gaby's sibling relationships. 3 of the best actors in the show at the moment. Great to see Sami back!!
  11. EastEnders: Discussion Thread

    The actress has had surgery so looks quite young, while the actor has aged quite badly.
  12. Days of Our Lives General Discussion

    Hi I'm sorry to be such an enthusiastic poster recently But I was just wondering what people's general thoughts are about Days of Our Lives, in particular what your favourite characters, storylines and couples have been over the years. I really like Sami Brady. Plus I like Sonny, Paul, John and Marlena.
  13. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Oh gosh Thanks for the info.

    Oops, Deidre Hall

    Ah, who did it involve?

    What happened in 1967?
  17. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Really enjoyed Thursday and Friday. Finally I'm interested in where things are going with Brady/Eric/Nicole. I'd feel more sorry for her if she hadn't slept with Eric. Brady's threat was brilliant. Deidre Evans is great when Marlena is thinking about the possibility of Will being alive. The plot is quite elaborate but very interesting. This Wilhelm though, he can bring people back to life? Kind of an annoying explanation but I haven't been watching Days that long, I'm guessing this kind of thing is quite normal for the show. Was Chloe for real with her sign? It literally looked like a toddler had drawn it with a crayon and Chloe'd had it blown up.
  18. External Scenes in American Soaps

    Did US soaps ever shoot external scenes? I believe that in order for the shows to be modernised they need to film externally. All the external shooting inside a studio looks silly and fake. I really like Days but I think US soaps are lagging behind UK and Australian soaps.
  19. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Why don't they feature actors in their 20s?
  20. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    I don't think I can argue with that
  21. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Just seen Wednesday's. Deirdre Hall as Hatty isn't her finest moment acting wise. I love how they've dragged out the Will story.
  22. Days of Our Lives General Discussion

    How did it turn out? Are there any posters who were around for 60s or 70s Days?
  23. The future of US soaps

    I've really got into Days and I was wondering what the likelihood is of it lasting much longer. I know none of us know for definite one way or the other, but I read it's the least popular daytime soap left, but I like it better than the others. Is it likely to be over in the next few years or has it had a renaissance that could last? I thought it would be gone about 5 years ago but it wasn't.
  24. The future of US soaps

    @Failsafe I am happy to give you the lowdown on some of the EastEnders characters, though @Nothin'ButAttitude's suggestions are sensible. Certainly since I've been watching Days on a regular basis I've been reading the characters bios on Wikipedia to find out more of the history. It's starting to fall into place now, but I have to say I imagine DAYS is more difficult to understand from a newbie point of view than EE as there seems to be so much history. Having said that I don't know if it's just because I've obviously grown up with EE and watched it for years hence understand who's connected to who. The main families are probably the Mitchells and Beales. The current storylines have mainly been about 21 year old Ben Mitchell, who went on a few dates with the son of the man who raped Ben's mum Kathy Beale 25 years ago. The rapist's family are taking over the square seemingly wanting to destroy it. Max Branning is helping them reach their goal because he seems to have a vendetta against a lot of people in the square for letting him go to jail for the murder of Lucy Beale, even when most of them knew the culprit was Lucy's brother Bobby Beale. Bobby's step-mother Jane Beale is in a coma in hospital and Max is hoping she doesn't wake up or have any memory because he revealed his evil plans to her in her burning restaurant before she nearly died (she was already crippled from her son Bobby battering her round the head with a baseball bat). Bobby is in prison now. Jane Beale's husband Ian Beale is grieving for his adoptive son Steven Beale who died in the fire. Kathy Beale is mum to Ben Mitchell and Ian Beale. Other main storylines centre around The Carters, who are the family running the Queen Vic pub - Linda Carter left the square to live with her mum for a while when she found out she had cancer (but told her husband Mick that her mum had had a stroke and that's why she was away) as she didn't want him to have to see her suffer. Mick missed her while she was away and kissed his former daughter-in-law Whitney Dean but they've all moved on from that and Whitney is engaged to bar manager Woody. All 4 of them work at the pub. Mick and Linda have a gay son but all he really does is stand at the bar being wooden. Mick also has a bisexual sister called Tina who works in the cafe but she doesn't do much. Other front-runners are Martin Fowler and Stacey Slater. They have 2 kids; Lily from her previous relationship with Ryan Malloy (who is Whitney's brother) and Arthur, who is the results of a one-night stand with Kush Kazemi (Martin's best friend). She is expecting another baby. She has a long history of mental health problems, having suffered postpartum psychosis following the birth of Arthur. Kush's mum Carmel found bruises on Arthur's body and presumed Stacey had been harming him so called social services. The likely culprit is his sister Lily who has been getting jealous of the attention he's been getting recently as he, Kush and Carmel all suddenly discovered they have a rare heart condition. What else? Oh yeah, Michelle Fowler is being stalked by some weirdo she met on a train. Michelle is Martin's sister. Oh - Sonia Fowler is Martin's ex wife and they have a daughter called Rebecca. Sonia is bisexual and was previously in a relationship with Tina Carter. Now she's interested in Gethin who is Rebecca's teacher, but Rebecca and Gethin had a forbidden kiss which he's keen to move on from. He's started dating Sonia. Dorothy Branning is the 90-year old lady who is heavily involved in the church and had a visit from a gay vicar this week. She's not really related to anyone anymore but she has step-children (Max Branning & Jack Branning) and step-grandchildren (Lauren Branning and Abi Branning, Max's kids). Lauren Branning was engaged to Steven Beale who died in the fire I mentioned earlier, but he was having an affair with her sister Abi (who is now pregnant). Lauren doesn't know this, but she never loved Steven anyway and was lusting after her boss Josh, who is part of the rapist's family. The bloke who was posing in the nude is Keanu Taylor, part of the new Taylor family. They're a blank canvas, but there is mum Karen, Keanu the oldest, Bernadette, Keegan and 2 twins with learning difficulties who barely feature and whose names I've forgotten. ETA: Their names are Riley and Chatten. I think that covers most of it, if you have any more questions head over to the EE thread.
  25. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Eric, Nicole and Brady are annoying as hell and the scenes between Eric and Nicole are so OTT soapy that you just can't take them seriously. The best thing about it were the scenes between John and Brady. Also annoyed by hysterical drunk Lucas. Used to love him but the acting is so bad in those scenes. Kate did her best to save them. Still loving the mystery of Will. I've done a 180 on Chad and now I really like Chad and Abi as a couple.
