  1. I liked Sam and Maxie's friendship on GH. They have since left one another's orbit, but I always enjoyed them together. Speaking of female friendships on soaps, I just had a funny memory. Does anyone remember the old Turtle-Run board? There was a poster there named Phoenix. I remember a thread when someone asked "would anyone mind if Jen and Greta became friends?" Phoenix replied "I wouldn't mind if Jen and Greta became more than just friends."
  2. Most Reviled Words in Soapdom

    I don't know if Ken Corday still says this, but he used to say all the time: "Stay tuned." And here is another one that we can thank KC for: "DAYS has fired Matt Ashford again."
  3. GH: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    I think I just figured out who kidnapped Spencer. I think it was Sam. She is trying to lure Sonny to the place she has him stashed so that she can kill him. I am not on these boards too much so I am not sure if anyone else has already hypothesized that. Forgive me if I am repeating what others have already said.
  4. DAYS Return Spoiled?

    I would love for Matt Ashford to come back as Jack. And I would enjoy seeing RC write for him. Maybe we would finally have a writer who was excited about the character, instead of HWs who are writing him badly because they are only writing for him at all because KC ordered them to.
  5. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    Marlena never interacted with Jack, Harper or Angelica before she was taken by Orpheus. The Deverauxs came right as Marlena, Bo and Hope were all leaving. They may have briefly been there in the final days before Bo&Hope sailed off into the sunset. Joseph Adams' Jack was the first to arrive. Genie Francis arrived as Diana Colville at about the same time. Angelica's words today implied that she had been in the Brady Pub back in the day. That was not the case, since it wasn't established until 1992, after she had already left Salem. I am surprised that Dena would make that mistake, since she has been with DAYS for so long. Then again, Dena has always been a terrible writer. Her material in 2003 remains the worst stuff I have ever seen on daytime. And she has never seemed to be too concerned with the show's history--at least not the parts that she didn't like to begin with or didn't care about.
  6. Days: July 2017 Discussion Thread

    Well Ron C. just made a mistake today. Angelica said that she was back in the Brady Pub again. Wrong. Angelica was presumed dead and left Salem in early 1990, I believe in March. In January 1991 she made a brief appearance outside of Salem. The Brady Pub was established in the Summer of 1992. Before that it was the Brady Fish Market. I actually think RC would have written well for Jack Deveraux if he had been given the opportunity back in the day. Sadly, it's too late now.
  7. GH: May 2017 Discussion Thread

    I enjoyed Obrecht's numbers in 2014 and 2015. It seems that the current writing team did not. They have kept her from performing for the last two Nurses Balls, and seem to think that the audience wants to see her denied the right to be on stage. I was hoping that last year was an aberration, but I guess this is the new normal. Too bad. I find her performances to be very amusing.
  8. GH: Actress leaving

    If Matthew Ashford was still on the show I would be screaming for it. Of course, KC wouldn't bother doing it for the same reason that he fired Matt so many times to begin with: to him Jack Deveraux was just "that guy Jennifer Horton married." He totally forgot how huge a star MA was, completely independent of Missy Reeves. In fact, Jack was the dominant character in the pairing during their supercouple heyday. I would love to see Jack and Angelica Deveraux interacting again, along with scenes that included Justin, Adrienne, and Alexander.
  9. Passions

    Deanna Wright was definitely the best Kay, IMO. She was to Passions what Sami Brady was to DAYS. She was definitely fierce, but like Sami she could show you her vulnerability. And I still remember when Charity was trapped in hell and Kay realized that she had to draw the line at some point so she finally went to the closet and tried to pull Charity out. I thought Taylor Anne Mountz was kind of one-note but she did have her fans. She also had good chemistry with Lena Cardwell, the first Simone (who should never have been fired IMO). I know people like to rag on Heidi Mueller but I thought she did well with what the part had evolved into. She made Kay into more of an adult that she had previously been. She actually showed Kay dealing with the difficulties of life while working in the cannery. And she made Kay and Miguel remotely believable, even if it was still a stretch. Gina Marie May is the often-forgotten temporary replacement when TAM abruptly left the show. She wasn't too memorable but she did have one good scene. It was a rare Kay/Theresa scene. I finally found it on youtube. There was very little interaction between them over the years, even though Maria was their shared family. There should have been more scenes with them. It is interesting to imagine this scene if it had been played by TAM, who had left 8 days earlier.
  10. Are you serious? And they didn't even give her time to get preggs again to save her job....LOL ROTF! So true! Yes, I am serious. I am pretty sure that this is what she said. Maybe she meant a biological child that she herself carried.
  11. Did I just hear Lulu say that this embryo is her one chance to have a child that is biologically hers? Isn't Rocco her biological child?
  12. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    If DAYS hadn't screwed Matt Ashford over, so many times, Jack Deveraux could still be on the show right now. And I would love to see a reunion with Jack and Angelica. Of course, they could bring JE/Angelica back without MA/Jack there. She has ties to Justin and Adrienne. And I am sure the show would just act like Jack was never that important to her story. That's what they kind of did in 2006 when they fired MA and got rid of Jack right after the long-awaited return of Steve and Kayla--ironically, a return that had been pushed for by J&J/Jack fans for years.
  13. I hate seeing Ava being forced to beg for any access to her own daughter. Carly's attempts to become her mother are reprehensible. At this point I really just wish they would say that Connie is alive and her alters somehow faked the deaths of herself and AJ. Let's just undo this whole thing. I am glad, however, that at least Avery got to see her mommy. For once, Sonny did something right. Not nearly good enough, of course, but still a step in the right direction. BTW, how can Sonny possibly believe that Ava alone will have to answer to Avery someday? Doesn't he think that he will also have to answer for killing AJ and countless other people?
  14. The though of Sonny getting custody of Avery is sickening to me. She needs to be with her mother. Sonny and Carly care about nothing other than erasing Ava from her life. Their behavior is reprehensible and it would be so sad for that child if she were to be raised by them.
  15. OK, I guess I was mostly wrong. There is no ticker-take parade, just a wedding cake. Still, they did have Carly reference that day at the hospital, and what Robin said to her, and she did do something to thank Robin for bringing Jason back. So I will award myself one point out of two.
