  1. Thanks! I guess I was motivated to post by Days being good again, LOL.
  2. I think they are bringing back Will soon and keeping it on the down-low. For there to be a triangle, they need Sonny and Paul together by the time they find out Will is alive, so that's why they've gone from 5 mph (it wasn't quite 0) to 30 mph on this all of a sudden. Glad to see Sonny with Ari the other day. The show has recovered since Ryan Quan became co-head and Josh Griffith left. More of a character-driven feel like the Tomsell days that got me hooked, more warmth, less darkness, and excellent pacing day-to-day. Days often does good Christmas and holiday episodes, but this has been much different from the post-murder depression of last year. The surprising connection of Adrienne and Kate over Adrienne's cancer has been written and performed brilliantly. I couldn't wait to watch the next day when Chad found Abigail with Thomas. I know it's good soap when I'm rushing to watch. I hope Days will be as good when (I'm really starting to think it's when, not if) Will is revealed, but without Will slinking around for a couple months.
  3. I'm still enjoying Days immensely and have heard nothing good about Dena Higley, so I'm very depressed about this. Josh Griffith was good at ATWT as a dialogue writer but I have no experience with him as a head writer.
  4. I can't take people seriously who think Carlivati's done nothing good. Bringing back Bobbie, Scotty, Lucy, characters thought long gone but so important to GH. Making Michael involved with ELQ. Bringing back Lucas. These are long-term things that are foundational to GH and crucial to its identity and future, but had gotten lost since the 90s.

      Its mostly just for show.. all surface, no substance.

      They bring people back, and they just destroy them or backburner them.

      Ron is a big baby and every time he does one thing good, he does 10 bad. Outside of that, tho, its nice to see you post jfung, I've missed your posts!

      Bringing characters back means nothing if you're not gonna actually write them properly.

  5. RIP Ralph Waite. Comfort to the nation as John Waltons on "The Waltons" and Father Matt on Days.

      I'd forgotten he's had a big recurring role on NCIS too.

      Shirley Temple Black, Sid Caesar, Ralph Waite -- all gone in the same week. I am just devastated.

  6. As a Jason Grimshaw fan, very pleased at a Corrie casting spoiler!

      I'm glad they're bringing in his father. I think they haven't had him on in over a decade.

      I saw a little clip on YouTube of the first Tony, I think. Jason was still in his teens!

  7. It's hard to reconcile how much I love Jason Grimshaw the character with how I feel about Ryan Thomas the actor apparently being a tax evader.

  8. I see EastEnders is back at "fire bunch of newbies to start over" M.O. I'm not sad that I can't watch it anymore. Even David Wicks can't save that mess. Corrie is much more stable.

  9. I like the new characters, but agree Miles and Zoe are too rich. My favorite Winston line so far is "I'm pretty sure public humiliation is illegal" -- think he will stick around and have more story than previous East Asian characters like poor Leia or Kendra, although still a sidekick. I love Leo and hope he is not going to be an abuser. Him with his grandparents was the best. The big shock of Adam dying -- was that necessary? They just had Cam die last season. So glad Eli was there supporting Clare through the cancer. Eclare are still awesome. Funny that just because he graduated, Jake didn't show up ever to support his stepsister though, nor Jake's dad. And of course, no mention of Darcy whatsoever. The stuff with the little kids was kind of random. The transformation of Mike Dallas into upstanding citizen and good guy, never mind his previous history, is pretty much complete now, but I don't mind because I want to root for all these characters. I forgot to remind Mr. Vixen to watch before the season started! Eric83, did you remember? Now there's just another week or so until the show is back again! Excited.

    Doctor Who

    Capaldi is a good actor and I liked him in Torchwood: Children of Earth, but I'm of the school that "it was time" for a woman or minority in the part.
  11. Back from my "watching Big Brother(US) 24/7" 3-month break! Happy to see my two US TV soaps are still doing well in terms of quality and in terms of stable ratings! In terms of soaps, only watched Corrie during the summer in addition to "the worst Big Brother season ever" (which it was). Hope everyone here has been doing well!

      I'll watch s15 before I ever watch s1 or 13 again.

      I don't think I've ever watched season 1, just a few episodes.

      Yeah, I should clarify I haven't watched Seasons 1-7, only seen some clips, and I've seen nothing from the very different Season 1 at all. Loved 13 because of Rachel Reilly finally winning, the late-night pajama jams, and Daniele/Dominic.

  12. Taking break from SON for Summer ... Too much TV to watch (Corrie, GH, DAYS, OLTL, Degrassi, AMC, pretty soon Big Brother) with Big Brother around the corner, so no time to comment on how much I'm liking it, espeically with how I am a feedster and comment on Joker's for BB. So see y'all in September and have a great summer! Or who knows, I might still log in and this could be a lie LOL.

      Sorry to see you go. I have to have a strong stomach at Joker's because of so many annoying people, although a few are OK.

      I'll miss your discussions about DAYS. They've really become a highlight for me to read. Have a good summer!

  13. I love Dennis. Dennis and Rita are a wonderful couple to turn to for advice and support. There is no other warm, unjudging, and not too "weird" older couple like that on the show. It doesn't really matter to me what he was up to in the 60s, how he was a bit of a bad boy or whatever. That was eons ago and people certainly will change over all that time. He's a great unit with Rita now and that's what matters. If they wanted to bring on someone for Rita, why invent a new character when it could be him, someone she interacted with way back when? Elsie's maiden name was Grimshaw so I think it's just a fun and harmless tip of the hat that he's related to Eileen -- can mean more later if they want it to.
  14. Yes, I believe CBC in Canada is just a couple weeks behind the UK, EricMontreal, about the same as Hulu. Glad you are watching again! One more soap I can discuss with you and read your thoughts about. Don't really care for Gloria so I don't mind that she's leaving. Glad they aren't killing her off though.
  15. Check out Chad Duell's twitter for video of "Emmy grinding" and Eddie Alderson ... Hilarious.
