  1. It seems like every time they have a friendship in soaps, it always seems to be slanted toward only one party (especially with women) OLTL: Blair and Téa becoming all about Blair being Téa's handmaiden...or with Viki/Dorian where Viki was always right, moral, and superior, while Dorian was constantly begging for forgiveness. AMC: Greenlee was a force of nature for a long time during her entrance and during the Leo years. She was more of Erica's daughter than any of the biological ones. However, her friendship with Kendall (Kenlee) ruined everything as they de-clawed Greens into a simpering sidekick. GH: Hayden becoming de-clawed and tossed with Dr. Caleb to prop Liz's boring self. Poor Budig having to play both destructions of once-great characters. DAYS: Gabi and Abigail. It seems like it's all about propping Gabi.

    Maggie got on my damn nerves today with her endless moralising. I wanted Bonnie to sock her.

    Freddie needs to lay off with buffets paid for by gullible fans buying snake oil. Sonny needs to be re-cast pronto.
  4. Create a Soap Town....

    Oh my goodness. I can't believe I actually did this. Aww, I miss this. I would love to start over.
  5. Create a Soap Town....

    I was inspired to do this by a convo I had the other day. Let's put our creative minds to work. Create a fictional town and fill it with your characters (it would help to specify who you'd cast in the roles). One rule is that you build upon the people who posted before you, and don't do anything that would intentionally disrupt the shared canon. You can either: *Create a new character. *Expound on a current character. *Expound on a town location. *Talk about the town itself. *Move the story forward. ...but you can only do one of these at a time (with the exception of moving the story forward).. I figured this would be a fun activity.
  6. ALL: Female Friendships that were on equal footing?

    I was hoping people would come in with examples otherwise because right now, it seems like every prominent female friendship on soaps the last 20 or so years have been one-sided.

    Judi shines the most playing people with defined personality traits like Beth (GL), Paulina (AW), etc. I don't really know any defining attributes of Adrienne. I'd rather Bonnie stays and Adrienne is given the heave-ho. At least I know what Bonnie's like.

    Fantastic Angelica scenes with Justin. I'm kinda rooting for a spark to be re-ignited there. Is anyone rooting for Tripp to be redeemed somewhat? It's not his fault his mother's a lunatic. Reeks of last minute re-writes.
  9. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    *I must say a shoutout to MBE for the subtle way she had played Kayla's loss of her job similar to a bad breakup. You could tell that Kayla put her heart and soul into being a doctor. I like it that a woman in a soap is being depicted as having the same care toward her own career as she would her family or a romance. Often times, we just see women whining about men or looking to pregnant. Seeing Steve help K every step of the way was what I needed to see in this show. *I would love if they could recast Joey with someone with less distracting hair. It takes me away from any scene with him.

    I can't be the only one finding Justin/Adrienne played out. RC knew better than to touch that again. I'm rooting for Anjelica to blow that sky-high. Also, what's the deal with Tripp? His mom is dead and long gone as far as we know. The boy needs to get over it. With that said, I'm liking the new direction the show is taking so far. It would be the perfect time to bring back Mimi as Farah hasn't graced our screens in so long. Re-cast Allie with Crystal Hunt and let the battle begin.
  11. Greatest Soap Cop-Out's.

    I could think of a few times that there were legitimately good stories that ended up failing not for being too over-the-top or unrealistic, but not maximising the drama when it could have. *DAYS: Theresa and JJ should have been explored further. Pairing her with Brady and de-fanging her was a waste of Jen Lilley's talents. *AMC: Michael Cambias being murdered by Bianca out of self-defense when it should have been Kendall as the one who put the creep away. That could have been a way to finally bring closure to the story started by SMG back in the mid-90s. It would have been poetic justice for her to, in a way, break the cycle of sexual abuse in the Kane family. *OLTL: Killing off Stacy Morasco. She was just starting to become interesting with the addition of her BFF Kim and the incoming fight for Sierra Rose v. Kish. As much as I prefer Farah Fath as a person compared to the glass-crushing CH, I liked what Stacy brought to the show vis-à-vis Gigi. Had she stayed a bit longer, I could have seen a great triangle with Fake Aubrey and Cutter. *OLTL again: Victor Lord coming back from the dead, thus erasing a core part of what made Dorian, Dorian.
  12. Oh, look, a job opening...these ladies better sharpen their resumés/casting couch skills.
  13. DAYS: Actress Returning Full Time!!!

    Now's the perfect time, to be honest. They could have Ciara find out that Patrick's her real dad...and in swoops Aunt Mimi to mix it up with her old comrades and guide her niece in her adolescence.
  14. Days Promo - Soap Superstar Joins....

    I'm pissed he was invited back for a soap gig while his much more talented and beautiful ex is still in career limbo.
  15. I ship Ciara and Chase. The history alone would carry them.
  16. They should have Scott join Missy again on DAYS.
  17. DAYS was hearbreaking today. That hug between Kate and Sami as well as the scene where Sami hugs her son's daughter (Hi, Susan Lucci) were spectacular.

  18. All these great stories with Steve and Kayla's family..and no Stephanie on canvas. WTF. 

  19. I'm loving the new Joey character. After JJ being such a let-down, I hope they unleash Joey as a new villain/psycho in Salem to give Kayla and One-Eye Steve some grief.
  20. DAYS: *Not calling Farah Fath's agent as soon as Jason Cook was set on returning as Shawn-D. *Not casting Cosgrove as either Peter Blake or Frankie Brady. *Picking up that PP reject Rob Wilson as Ben, when someone like Drew Garrett would have done the trick. *I'll echo what people said about MA being cast as Serena instead of Sarah Horton. *Guy Wilson...in general. I would've rather they killed Will off than that travesty. GH: *Howarth as Franco. *Not having Michael Easton come in as "Silas", a Caleb disguise...
  21. DAYS: The New Teen Scene

    Good set...though Chase's hair is stuck in 2009.
  22. The wait for Dena's return to DAYS has been troubling. What's worse is that Monday's episode was prolly filmed in '07.

  23. I came here hoping it wasn't Terri Conn and Austin Peck. Now I can breathe again.
  24. Howarth as Peter Blake (DAYS)? Perhaps as a manager in the local Salem Chik-Fil-A.

      Pet peeve: It's always annoyed me when people randomly play casting director. 99% it's completely unnecessary or no one asked.

      You make this bad suggestions just to get reaction, don't you?

    4. Mathewson


      I don't know what's worse. Your taste in actors/actresses or doing this intentionally to get attention? Either way, absolutely not. Howarth can't act at all.
