  1. Victoria Rowell's Rich and the Ruthless

    Of course "politics" could've gotten in the way - or the script that she presented them just sucked (I can't judge this, since I haven't seen it). Or she asked for too much money (not likely considering the obscure channel she went with) - either way she didn't exactly go to this no-budget channel as a first-choice. It was probably her only choice.
  2. Wednesday - is that awful "Incoming call coming..." thing a new thing or has it been there? Doesn't work. Works on shows like Jane the Virgin, but not on Days.
  3. Watching Tuesdays episode... another Daniel mention. PLEASE STOP. And if Daniel gets a dopplegänger I might actually kill someone.
  4. Victoria Rowell's Rich and the Ruthless

    Don't you think she pitched this project to them? The truth is probably that everyone turned her down.
  5. OMFG YEESSSSSSSSSSS! I hope they do her justice!
  6. He's still on it as far as I know.
  7. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    LOL, I can see why they didn't bother breaking the budget for a car scene since I doubt Abby being run over will have any sort of long-term impact. But omg the flashback sequences were even worse than the actual car scene! Gee, John Aniston has really given up on even trying to act. It's sort of annoying because we know he can act, yet he is incredibly flat. The Hattie / Marlena scenes were fun - Deidre obviously loves playing Hattie and has come alive for the first time in ages. And LOL at her dragging around Marlena all over Salem. Yeah, no one would ever think it's slightly suspicious that someone's dragging around a body-sized bag around town. No one. Nope. For all intent and purposes Anjelica is a really bad plotter - Stefano would never let this happen! LOL at Kayla just being reinstated on the spot. That's how it works in real life show. You just get to know that you're cleared and then go back to work. Lucky it happened just as Abby came in! Also, why on earth aren't there any other doctors? The hospital is completely dead. Would it kill them to put in some extras in the background to give a sense that more is going on in the hospital and there's more citizens in Salem than the ones we follow? Actually, it probably would literally kill them as the budget is so tight these DAYS so... never mind. Also, the sets are so drab. There's literally no windows facing to the outside and if there are they are covered by curtains. The lightening really needs work because there seems to be an eternal darkness over the show.
  8. But what about Marcy Walker, eh?
  9. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    I always liked Marci but previously there wasn't much about the material that she could really do. I'm happy that she's gotten to play snappier Abby and once this shitstorm of a storyline wraps up I hope she gets a better one that will make her shine more. She's potentially a new leading actress of the show.

    Uh why would you want that? "Oh. Oh. Yeah. That feels. Good."
  11. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    A piece of cardboard vs Joey... who's the better actor?
  12. I wonder if there was any certain actress on an 80s daytime soap that personified the Rapunzel look?

    Right, when are the men of Days going to have to start shaving their chest again now that Ron's in charge?
  14. Melrose Place

    Charles Pratt was there from the start iirc. He didn't properly become executive producer until season seven, but it's pretty obvious that from season four and onwards he and Frank South pretty much ran the show. He'd often appear in soap mags during that era and talk about the latest revamp and mission to "Save Melrose Place"... Tellingly, he was absent during the third season when he was busy with Models Inc which is regarded as the best MP season by many. Go figure...
  15. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    Tuesdays episode - I watch online since I don't live in the US.
  16. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    FFS why are they still mentioning the orange wonder? Who liked Daniel so much that the mentions even fall over to the Ron era? What sort of favours did he do to the writers that make him so god-damn special?
  17. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    Ok Ron's first few DAYS have amused me... but I feel like this is going to turn into an absolute trainwreck Anjelica's plan doesn't make sense - ok involving Adrienne, but Marlena and now Maggie? What? Why???
  18. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    Sorry, but not sorry, the Bonnie/Hattie scenes were hilarious. If you're going to pull off this kind of crap this is the way to go. I still don't know what the point of Anjelica's master plan is though So many Will mentions! Bonnie getting payback on Maggie will at least give the auburn-zombie a decent storyline.
  19. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    I think we can all agree that Days is currently the most exciting soap (for all the worst reasons).
  20. DAYS Return Spoiled?

    But will they eat take-out from Chick-fil-A?
  21. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    I thought I was the only one who noted that - but yes, it's like how Europe is this big country to Americans. (it's not)
  22. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    I wouldn't say it's "good" just that the bar has been set so low by Dena that anything is better. I do think there's a definitive change in how characters interact but longterm plots... we'll see. The dopplegänger storyline is incredibly wonky from the get-go.
  23. This thread might be the most stunning thread on this board x
  24. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    And the show sort-of acknowledges that with Hattie making fun of it. But this dopplegänger storyline is dumb, but it will reveal the inevitable return of... DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUN!
  25. I hear Marcy Walker was going to be the original Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place - Wood of course being a tribute the her walking. Because wood can't walk! Harr harr!
