  1. Her last visit proved that Ron is going to write her as OTT wacky. She carried around an urn, for Christ's sake. That was so bad....
  2. Like I said, I never watched regularly. I do know Alicia Minshew is annoying AF!!!
  3. OH GAWD!! I never watched AMC very much, but I didn't have to view it regularly to realize that is the worst example of this crap of all time. Christ, they undid one of the most provocative and relevant stories of that golden era of soaps, to grace us with a character I could not sit through for ten seconds.
  4. And said children always get shoved down our throats, many times in favor of legitimate offspring that we have grown to know and love onscreen. That makes the entire plot point even more annoying. Oh, and I just *LOVE* it when a retconned child is created while pissing all over history. The latest example: Stefan O. Dimera on Days. The entire point of making Vivian insanely jealous of Carly was that she didn't have the capability of conceiving a child. Her jealousy over Nicholas plainly boiled down to her barren womb. It also made it even more unbearable when Stefan turned out to be a s#it character and a clown of a villain. I can stand it better now that Barash is in the role, however.
  5. Retconned children, lazily introduced, that go on to eat up the canvas like termites on over-aged driftwood.
  6. EVERYTHING you just said. I mean all of it. It seems like a lot of the greats had a hard time taking someone under their wings, and that left us with the mess we have been viewing for about three decades now. Sheri Anderson was schooled the right way, but I start drawing blanks after that.
  7. Suddenly, it all makes perfect sense. The way Packer and Backus wrote Lester out was abrupt and ridiculous. However, as usual Lester's performance saved the day. Once he was done, they were done....to be honest.
  8. You always deliver, and you are spot on right here. They do it to placate old ladies in the Midwest and South, whom love clutching their bibles like a a drowning man wishes to cling to a life vest. This genre's obsession with pleasing them has been a factor that has contributed to it's demise. How can we feel any empathy for a bunch of execs that are satisfied with feeding the smallest of minds? I'm sorry.....I have not an ounce of compassion to give when they made this a stagnant genre that caters to fear.
  9. + 1,000,000 ALL OF THIS!! The wheels came off this INCREDIBLE drama when Marland died, and they never were placed back on. I know many didn't like the Royce Keller story, but I loved it. That was the last story I enjoyed on this show. Yes, it is post Marland, but it still felt like an ATWT story. Past that the show lost it's character chasing stunts. It was a sad sight to behold, because this was a jewel of a show. I loved Days, and accepted the camp because it was a standard feature of that show by this time. ATWT had maintained it's integrity (Well, besides the head shrinking) and had remained a show devoted to character dissection. I loved it for that reason. Watching it wander so far from that path was an excruciating experience.
  10. When they shovel dirt on this show next year, we will all be stating the MULTITUDE of reasons for it's inevitable demise.... The taping schedule will be a highly cited talking point. It was a definite problem when Dena trashed this show multiple times, and it's still a problem today
  11. Just when I start to enjoy ORK, she gets the boot. I LOVE this crazed b#tch now. Her lighter could be the answer to all of this show's ills. Lightem' up Claire! Just do it, for the love of Christ. Shady Sonny Bear and his tumor ridden twink need to jump from a diving board into the shallow end of a swimming pool. They torture me. I should be rooting for a gay couple, but I can't stand by two canker sores. When I see them, I think of that old spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot", and dream that they are six feet under. Yes, they have dead eyes....so why not do us all a mercy and make it official? If this is what we were destined to receive by reviving Will, I sincerely wish he'd still be in the grave. As for Sonny, his chubby a.s.s. can walk straight into a sausage grinder.
  12. You know, there are moments happening right now I almost like.... Maggie almost taking a swig was great soap opera, and Suzanne could nail another turn at the bottle, if they let her do it. I thought MBE did a great job today when that a.s.s. Jack wanted her to sign that horrendous "letter" absolving him. I also finally kind of like crazy eyes Claire. Light that pyre, and burn have the cast, you insane little b#tch. HOWEVER, the horrid production values are distracting, and there are times the dialogue is elementary at best. Out of every show airing right now, on networks or streaming, I have the deepest connection to this show. However, that's easy to forget when you consistently find yourself dissatisfied and annoyed.
  13. DUDE!! We cluck like hen's in a chicken house, and it's fantastic. I'm glad I got a seven day ban on Twitter. Man, Ron would have given Lexie her bite back, and that is all I ever wanted. It's unfortunate she likes the country life. I doubt we'll even get a drive by from her when the show is inevitably cancelled.
  14. She and her husband have a farm over in Georgia, and form what I hear she is very happy! Good for her, but not so great for us. I posted this is the "Worst Executive Producer" thread, but at least on film it's better than it was under Tomlin's toxic reign. He had the show looking like it was taped inside a vagina. As for now....lighting still sucks....and wardrobe??? Listen, there are times I think Kate skint a musty coach in a Salvation Army Thrift Store, and self-sowed that horrid [!@#$%^&*] together by hand. There is no excuse for that. And we can all tell Deidre makes her own wardrobe choices...That ridiculous pleather she loves is always on the menu. This show is like a runaway train lacking any brakes.
  15. I will respond to your comments about Sheffer tomorrow. He was terrible, but still a breath of fresh air after the JER 2.0 debacle. That pic of Ari says it all... Yeah she is actually Kristen, but there is no excuse for that look. I want to sleep through this, but how can one erase that image from one's mind. Uggh! Just horrid!! Wake me up when it's all over!!!!!!!!!
  16. That went around...yes. Knowing this business I tend to believe it. This show became a hot mess during that era BTS. Lord, I loved message boards back then!!! I know a couple of birds that would whisper in my ear as well during that time period. They always delivered the goods. All the while, the show continued to suck donkey balls. It was terrible on a daily basis. It wasn't Langan bad, but it was still consistently awful. All that turmoil kept me interested in the show. It almost felt planned.
  17. I remember that mess.... That was the best drama this show has put out since the mid 90's. God bless you Ed and Ali!
  18. Please, just don't let her dance. For the love of god almighty, spare me that embarrassment.
  19. Maybe they will let it go one that long. This Corday/Sony lawsuit is really a bad sign for the show. Maybe Sony will still cave a settle, but that's not looking likely right now. If this is drawn out and goes to trial, Days will not get another full renewal. I am 80% certain that I am right. Before we know it, the park bench with be the place everyone has sex. I can actually see production values devolving to that point. Before we know it, the park bench with be the place everyone has sex. I can actually see production values devolving to that point
  20. Vee, you just spoiled my fun, because you happen to be right. That tuned into a dumpster fire..
  21. Renee Jones is a force of nature. I wish she would have stuck around. I think Ron may have given her back her Dimera streak, and that would be fun to watch. I love you people! I sweat to god this place is a gift.
  22. It was funny in the most ridiculous and humiliating sort of way. I cannot compare that scene to anything on any serialized drama I have ever beheld. It was strangely unsettling, I am bisexual, I don't hide that.....but I promise....if forced to act.....I'd give a more masculine performance than that. He went around that restaurant like he was frolicking through a field of tulips. It was very, very, very, very BAD! And yet, all these years later.....I have realized it may be the best comedic scene to ever hit the air waves. SNL has nothing on that s.h.i.t! I belly laugh just thinking about Maggie screaming "LOCK THEM UP!" You can't find comedy gold anywhere like that. Such an unintentional classic. BRAVO TOM LANGAN!! You outdid yourself, and ruined my show.... This made me remember Bonnie giving Julie the runs...... Yeah, that happened..... James Reilly at his best. My girl Julie Olson Williams, an undeniable living legend, had a spastic case of the runs, and it happened on screen. Jesus, it was terrible. Meanwhile, Mickey Horton, Salem's most capable lawyer, stood by dressed like a f.ucking cowboy. Now ask me why I hate Reilly....
  23. We think alike..... Google him in underwear......, Holy Mary Mother of God.....
  24. Amy, if he had witnessed that, he would have wrapped a rope around his neck. I do write some music and poetry, and I am protective over my arrangements, as anyone would be. It's like giving birth to something. When Kyle opened his mouth to sing, it was cringe worthy in a very strange way. He wasn't BAD. He hit the notes in a delicate way, and seemed to understand when he needed to be subtle, and when he was required to up the ante. However, his facial expressions and body language made his performances a study in repression. It was distracting in a strange, terrible, and yet fascinating way. I don't know how anyone could champion the early 2000's on Days. Reilly may have ruined the show, but Langan's stuff was unbearable to behold. Langan made the show a must miss disaster. The Coronation Massacre. Need I say more? EDIT: THE GARDEN OF EDEN....it would make anyone want to take a bottle full of Lithium. You are right, of course..... But it beat the [!@#$%^&*] I saw on Days. I have a soft spot in my heart for Holden and Lily. I loved Martha Byrne, and yet she did annoy me at times. That said, Holden and Lily have me hooked all these years later. I loved Josh and Reva, and I adored Harley and Mallet, as well as Cat and David, on GL. There was something more enriching and meaningful when it came to couples on the P&G soaps. I loved Days, but that show's couples relied on outside forces to oppose them. P&G soaps allowed internal conflicts to separate fan faves, and that felt more authentic to me.
  25. I did love Martha Byrne singing "I Can't Make you Love Me" when Holden had amnesia on ATWT. I thought Damian was hot (I was 14 and bisexual...don't judge), and never got why she wanted Holden, but when she sang that song it resonated. I found myself rooting for the underdog!!! It was soapy and sensual, and it didn't feel forced. I swear, ATWT was in a class all it's own at times. That show understood what moments to capitalize on. When it was great, it was magical.
