  1. I remember one with Brooke and Deacon on B&B way back in the day that I was shocked to see actually make it to air. He was on top of her...thrusting!...until he collapsed on top of her. I was like...whoooooaaaaa
  2. I could watch Traci every day. I couldn't give a flip about Cane, and now that Lily and the kids are gone, Cane really has no connection to the show.
  3. I thought the Cane/Traci pairing had some potential...at least it was something different. DG blew it if he fought against this story. He could have been paired with an Emmy winner whose character is arguably the moral center of the show. I did think a Traci/Paul/Chris triangle could have potential and give all of those vets a story. I'd love it if they somehow managed to make Traci a mom again (maybe she adopts a teen that could be added to the scene).
  4. I do like the actress but this show needs a new permanent real pot stirrer. It would have been better to have brought back a slightly more sane Kristen who stuck around and screwed with everyone's lives.
  5. Still not over the killing of Colleen...such a shortsighted story decision.
  6. Poor DAYS...three episodes under two million. This does not bode well at all. They have about half of the audience of Y&R....which is struggling itself. The show has certainly been worse in my opinion, but I still can't seem to get myself invested in it. It's just sort of middle of the road blah. I might watch half an episode a week where I used to watch every day. Between the budget and actors' minimum appearances stories are hard to build any sort of momentum with and characters who should interact don't. It feels like everyone is in their own little storyline islands that don't intersect, so we don't get that sense of Salem being a community. That being said, I know a lot of this is due to the budget and the restraints put on the show. I'm not sure what the answer is...if there is one at this point. Since they're already shooting April of next year...almost a year in advance...there isn't time to turn the ship around. By the time renewal talks usually happen in January, the show will probably be shooting November. Maybe NBC will give us one last Christmas in Salem in 2020? I wish I even had suggestions at this point on what I would think could help, but I just don't anymore. Nothing is "popping" story-wise. I'm tired of latex masks and back from the dead people and Trump Jack and a serial killer being the hero. I was intrigued by Maggie's falling off the wagon which should be a HUGE umbrella story, but SR is only getting her minimum....so there's no real build up or pay off. I mean I could watch Xander in those running shorts every day, but after a while, even that is not enough. The ONLY thing I can think of is they need to get on their knees and beg Allison Sweeny to come back (even for a year). Sami has never been my favorite character, but it's true that DAYS feels like DAYS more when she's on. I miss the great rivalries the show used to have (Kate/Vivian, Kate/Sami, Sami/Carrie, Kate/Laura, Marlena and ED's Kristen). They helped keep the show fun. Right now, if we're lucky, we get a Julie/Gabi scene. RC was one of many writers who understood how important the Viki/Dorian rivalry was to OLTL as a whole. I'm just randomly throwing out thoughts, but it's just sad to see the show slowly slipping away.
  7. While I think all the actors brought their A game to the story, I agree that I didn't like seeing Felicia in "the other woman" role. She was too big of a personality for that. And, then they put John and Felicia together for a millisecond before breaking them up.
  8. Who remembers the great Traci and Lauren catfight?
  9. Eight months ahead...oh, man. That's bad. It makes it impossible to respond to fan feedback and ratings. Looking at the show's ratings, if things don't pick up I'm scared we're getting close to the end. I know it's budget, budget, budget. They're obviously working actors only their minimums which makes it very hard for a story to gain traction and the low quality of the sets have become a huge distraction. Looking at the Horton/Brady BBQ...I remember when everyone could be there. That said, I think they're trying the best they can. There is just so many limitations. I appreciate using legacy characters like Doug and Julie. I was enjoying Maggie's fall off the wagon, but again, I think they just worked her the minimum so it was impossible to hit all the story beats that should have been there...Lucas, Jennifer, Doug, Julie...all these characters should have played a part of that story.
  10. I could watch Traci/Beth Maitland every day. Her character is truly the heart and moral center of the show IMO. Cane...I'm pretty much over. Now that Lily and the twins are gone there's no real reason for him to be there. I feel like this character's time has come and gone, and I hate the way the actor is treating this story on his social media. You're working with an Emmy winner and Y&R legacy character...you should be happy, not trying to sabotage it if you're smart. I wish they would find another love interest for Traci. Someone mentioned Michael if Jack and Lauren continue to flirt...that would be a great one with the history between those characters. I also wish the show somehow found a way to give Traci a child again (adoption, etc.). I'm still not over how MAB killed Colleen for a quick story.
  11. I know we can't have Sami back full-time (I do enjoy her visits), but I really wish the show would keep Lucas on permanently. It just feels more like DAYS with him there. Plus, the Hortons need some sort of male patriarch figure, and he's the closest we've got.
  12. I agree. I'm 99% sure it's a poster who kept leaving these continuous messages about how much he hated SR/Maggie on another site. It's super odd. What is the obsession there? Did she not answer their fan mail or something? To me, she's the most interesting part of the show. I was actually hoping her fall off the wagon would be even more dramatic....like Maggie ends up on the street practically. She's doing great with what she's been given though.
  13. The only show I watched with much consistency was DAYS. I'd have to give it a C. Much of May was quite boring. It only picked up the last week of the month. All the big "reveals" should have been moved up a couple of weeks to gain traction for the month. The highlight for me was Suzanne Rogers. She took what they gave her and ran with it! Her scenes with Xander where unexpectedly touching.
  14. Wow....think they were playing with taboo fantasies there just a bit? I wonder what happened to both of them.
  15. As much as I hate recons doing something to take the "serial killer" aspect out of the relationship would be the only way I think I could stomach the pairing. I'm sorry....I can stretch fantasy for dramatic purposes....but NO ONE gets cured from "serial killing" and it does make Ciara look stupid.
