    Y&R: Old Articles

    Well, if she had just kept her [!@#$%^&*] clean....

    Days: Leo's Mom

    Yep. It is. DAYS must think this will lure fans of Y&R's Baldwin/Fisher clan to their show. I'm still expecting to hear Christian LeBlanc has joined as Leo's brother, Chet Cooper. It also sounds like the show doesn't know where to go with John, or with John and Marlena. Frankly, I think that's been the case since the "Two Romans" saga and the "Robo John" stuff that happened after Drake came back to the show (after John had supposedly died). Hence, all the resets to John's pre-Roman past.

    Days: Leo's Mom

    I'm not going to speak for everyone, but I want DAYS to stop this ridiculous practice of rehiring actors for new and different roles. It's fine when that actor played only minor or day player roles, but...Josh Taylor (ex-Chris) as Roman? Wayne Northrop (ex-Roman) as Alex North? Judi Evans (Adrienne) as Bonnie? Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady) as Rex? Judith Chapman (ex-Anjelica) as Diana? Tamara Braun as, like, 17 different, front-burner characters? If these actors (and others I'm probably forgetting/ignoring) are so valuable to Ken Corday and the other producers, then why not bring them back in their original roles? We've already pointed out, for instance, how having JC come back as Anjelica (and not as Diana) could have just as much impact on the lives of Leo, Sonny, Justin and Adrienne. And if WN could come back as Roman, as he's clearly expressed that he'd like to, I think there could be a way to do that without losing Taylor or Drake Hogestyn and still give all three men something valuable to do. IMO, this practice of rehiring once-prominent actors to portray characters with no connections to their former ones is just one more thing that makes it difficult for DAYS viewers to invest in their show emotionally or take it seriously. (I'm not even going to address the rampant resurrections of characters that should have remained dead, or the romantic and sexual hookups that are past bordering on incest at this point.)

    I saw him last year in a Hallmark Christmas movie with Jodie Sweeten (a.k.a. "Stephanie Tanner," on "Full House."). He wasn't bad. But, then again, the bar's pretty low when it comes to Hallmark movies.

    I wouldn't say he shouldn't have been on soaps. I think he did a great job on AMC as Sam Brady, and he had terrific chemistry with Dorothy Lyman. But, I also think you're right about him being no Tom Hughes. In retrospect, I wonder whether she would have been more successful coming back as Dee Stewart, the role she had played at some point during the early-'70's.

    And in a corner somewhere, Jason Kincaid and Glynnis O'Connor continue to weep.

    Oh, how I wish Mitch McConnell would go away.

    To be fair, I got a similar vibe from the last guy (Eric Winter?) who played Rex.

    So, no love for David Cherrill, Peter Galman or Tom Tammi, then? For me, the ideal Tom and Margo were Colin and Deas, with Marx and HBS being a very close second.

    The Doctors

    Oh, I definitely agree. I was just explaining before why it felt as if they had rushed Steve and Carolee's reconciliation. I'm wondering whether Marland was so fixed on the idea of the Aldriches, Powerses and Dancys being the core families of the show, and Matt/Maggie and Steve/Carolee being the tentpole couples, that he saw separating Steve and Carolee any longer as working against that concept.

    Days: 1/21/19. Weekly Preview

    Jack just came back from the dead for, like, the 20th time -- and he's already running for mayor? Oh, DAYS. DAYS, DAYS, DAYS. Would you PLEASE inject SOME logic into one of your stories for once? Just for old times' sake? And how da fuq does Leo, a CON ARTIST, not see that drugged champagne (or whatever) coming? I mean, did he really think Xander would not think of SOME way to get out of sleeping with him? That queen belongs on "America's Dumbest Criminals."
  12. Already? I understand how Billy feels about Victoria and Cane's kisses, but it was not his place to tell Lily, not even after she demanded he be straight with her. He could have expressed general concern about Cane without divulging the kiss. I never thought I'd say this, but I hope Cane whoops his ass, lol. I'm with Kay Alden: I can't make heads-or-tails out of Mia and her relationships with Rey and Arturo. I also think they've rushed this particular story, asking us to get too involved with characters we still don't know very well. If this doesn't end with Mia's lifeless body found in the trunk of Abby's car, I'll be shocked.

    I could be wrong, or too much of a Marland apologist, but I think he just wanted to wrap up that story (after dragging it out for his entire tenure) and move on.

    Yeah, from her marriages to Todd.

    For all we know, the spokesperson could be a fraud, lol!
