  1. I just find that silly. I feel the same way when fans whine about the show "wasting" a set on characters they don't like. I mean... seriously?
  2. I meant too old for John. Not too old to be front and center in stories. Again, this is one of the things I've heard over the years. But I think the longer Reilly's tenure went on, the more power he had to write what he wanted to write.
  3. I haven't watched those years but it's my understanding that Alex was the main bad guy in 1979-80, no? But watching 1982 and onwards, he felt like a secondary antagonist taking orders from players like Stefano and Victor. I don't remember him doing much his last six months on the show after Emma's death. I think if it hadn't been for Quinn Redeker's portrayal, Alex would have been written out much sooner. Speaking of which, his exit, torching the Salem Inn and being taken away in handcuffs, felt kinda lame for a character who had been on for eight years. But then again it seemed like many long-term characters were tossed aside back then. Don and Neil being the two infamous none-exits. I have to say SSH was smoking hot when she returned in 1990.
  4. I've heard over the years that it was NBC who thought Marlena was too old for John but that Reilly was pro-J&M. Don't know what's true or not. But wasn't it after Maison Blanche and before the possession that John really courted Kristen when Tony was blind? I think he slept with Kristen before becoming a priest again. I only have 1994 episodes up until August so I haven't watched Sep-Dec since they aired. Going by memory here.
  5. I like Marie Wilson so I kinda liked Summer even if the story was crap. The biggest WTFery was that Maggie gave birth to Summer at the age of 17. So Summer should have been much older than Daniel, like really older. No way did I buy that.
  6. It's interesting to read the interview with Judi because in the final episode of the Days podcast, Ron said they couldn't really play Adrienne much because of Judi's other full time job (I think at a cemetery or something?). But he said they always have Bonnie. Frankly, I just don't think he cared about Adrienne. She's had that other job for years and it has never seemed to be a problem before when other writers gave her more screen time. Personally, I like Bonnie more than Adrienne so I hope to see her again.
  7. They tried that back in 2012 when Will worked for EJ. The smirking was even worse at that time.
  8. It was Brash and Cwikly who made Craig Chloe's father. Yep, and Corday allowed it for a long time because he and Langan had the same vision. Broderick did not, but I enjoyed her four week stint. She did some interesting ground work for certain characters, and some stories that had been dragging under Sussman-Morina were given a shot in the arm. Personally, I'm a fan of the Langan era even if I also see some of his faults.
  9. Never understood all the hoopla about JH, in acting or looks. CS can do better.
  10. I had some complaints when I first heard about the TimeJump, but now when I've watched it my problem isn't the jump itself. It's that I find the stories... boring. I actually enjoyed most of the stories that were playing out through the summer and fall so the TimeJump was unnecessary at this time for me.
  11. No, Tuscany however, became another "Alice's" in 2004 when Bonnie turned it into a country bar.
  12. That's not how soap ratings work in this day and age. Eric and Nicole ARE popular. Which is why the show throws obstacles in their way. But I'm with @Gray Bunny on this one. GV is boring. Original Doug's Place is not the same as the one we've seen in recent years! The Cheatin Heart WAS supposed to be in the seedy part in Salem, but the writers didn't care about that when Sonny changed it to Common Grounds. It was the same set with new colours and furniture. It was when Sonny and Chad later changed it to Club TBD that the set changed and looked completely different (and ugly IMO). Renamning it Doug's Place didn't change it's location or the ugliness. This is correct. And just to add. When Sonny and Chad first started Common Grounds Ian McAllister was an anonymous investor. Eduardo Hernandez bought the club and had Dario run it. I don't remember if Dario took ownership when Eduardio went to prison.
