DAYS: Monday, May 14th

Another good episode to start what I hope is a week that maintains solid momentum.

Now, in response to Drew H's post, I really hope Judi is contract. She is fantastic and the show could utilize her well. I just hope they explain more about where she has been and so on if she sticks around.

Now, about the episode. I want to thank Hogan and the writers for bringing back the solid character writing we were getting in the Fall. We are seeing more human sides of Philip and EJ and that was necessary and Lucas has his sparkle back.

The Sami/Lucas/EJ scenes were well-done. Lucas's reaction was spot on and I am so glad that the attempted murder plot was exposed so quickly and wasn't pushed under the rug. I liked Lucas's "Too bad you didn't kill him" line. The LUMI I love is back and that ending with them leaving and EJ following them...nice buildup.

JS is incredible. The dejection he had all over his face was heartbreaking. I felt for him. He actually beleived Sami when she said he was the father. I loved LUMI standing up to him and the scenes with him and Kate were very good. Him finally admiting his love for Sami and the way Kate kicked the door in and said "Bloody Hell"...priceless. I love LK but they need to give her more to do. She didn't even care about EJ forcing himself on Sami or the fact that Sami saved Lucas's life. I am worried about her character and her job because she is growing more and more expendible and I don't want her to go.

The Kayla/Adrienee scenes were nice. Judi and MBE always worked well together and Bonnie is nothing but a distant memory now. Her bringing the gun to Kayla and their whole talk was chilling. Nice buildup and I loved seeing Adrienne fear for her brother. Can't wait for Hope/Adrienne tomarrow.

The island stuff was nothing much but having Bo there makes a big difference. I am liking Gabby again but she is useless. Hopefully, Bisco finds a gig elsewhere. Belle's clue was lame but at least she was smart enough to leave one. Also, JKJ has toned it down alot and so have the writers and I appreciate that.

All in all, a solid episode and the roll continues.

Oh, and Ridge is 100% right. Days gave yet another sweeps to Ali Sweeney and the girl did it again. It seems everytime the show needs a boost or a spark to get going again it starts with her and here we are again. She is amazing and she is probably one of the most important people that is vital to this show's success. She is definitely the most marketable. Sweeps has been great so far and let's hope this is just the beginning of a great ride.

You think so?

I think that was just him pretending that he truly thought he was really the father of Sami's unborn child. In acting such a way, that gave him the chance to possibly get some sympathy out of Sami and Lucas. He knew the amnio report was falsified so he had to have known that Sami had no certain way of knowing whether he was the father or not, and rather that was just her telling him what he wanted to hear.

I thought that too Jinxed but then we had the scene with him alone where he flashed back to her telling him that and that she wanted the baby to be a Dimera. The way that scene was portrayed and the way EJ was sulking and so depressed showed me that internally he bought it. Maybe in his mind he didn't but in his heart he did. His heart was broken and I think Sami's words almost reassured him the baby was his and her saying she didn't know who the father was on top of her marrying Lucas when he was sure Lucas would dump her after learning the truth, basically took the wind out of his sails.

JS brought back EJ's magic today IMO. It's so good to see the human side of him, and Philip, again. It as necessary and was something lacking for most of this year.

My first hee haw of the show. And the phone service was messed up, too, remember.

Also, I loved seeing Philip deck the injured Shawn. He needed it badly long ago. Also, I'd love to see Philip, Belle and Shawn behave like rational adults with Claire's welfare the only concern.

Gabby is sharper than Shawn, it's too bad he has to leave his brains on the island. She can grasp and reason very well. I'll miss her. I'll miss Duck, too. He is an interesting character.

I frankly don't know a word Adrienne and Kayla said. I could scarcely stand to even look at either of them being as they don't interest me in the least. I cannot get drawn into this story at all.

Thankfully the New Orleans storyline is about to begin, and the teen's mystery.

Nope! It was supposed to happen on May 11. We got sh*t. :angry:

Lucas and Sami will probably be married 3 months before they air the wedding gifts. Remember the last time fans got to decide something on this show? I believe Bo and Hope's daughter ran aruond with he hideous name "Doodlebug" for 3 months.

I heard that the gifts were "scanned across" at the wedding from the camera... that's about as much as we got from it.

I also heard that the scenes were cut whenever Bryan Dattillo got sick during the taping of the wedding.

Every time I see EJ, Sami, and Lucas together in a scene these days I just get tired. I know it's the fault of the previous months' material and not now, but well, lack of good build-up has its ramifications, and I'm on my last legs with this storyline. Of course I bet they will milk the triangle for months to come. When I ask myself honestly, I don't care about a Brady-Dimera baby either.

I liked seeing Kayla and Adrienne, but it's just filler.

The island stuff moved along today which was good, I guess ... and yet this too should've happened ages ago.

I guess the bottom line is I'm not excited about anything! Which is sad!

    • Sharon Case, Eileen Davidson, Amelia Heinle, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Melissa Ordway & Melody Thomas Scott so far seem to have re-shot their opening post-#YR50 cast photo and around the time of the gala filming. And I'm feeling as if it is possible both Lauralee Bell, Courtney Hope & Kate Linder's opening shots might have been a re-shoot, as well. I fully think if they had used the typeface from the 2003 opening it would improve it!

    • who is Ex Soap Opera Star?
    • Have the actors portaits in the style of the 70s/early 80s sketch, transform into the cast shots mimicking the 90s style.

    • Is there a subsection of time where quality (writing, production, acting, etc) slumped during what was otherwise a show's strong period. For example, The Wendy Riche era on GH (1993-2001) was especially strong. However there is a decline in quality after 1996 because of increased mob focus and the eventual departures of Brenda, Robin and Johnathan Jackson's Lucky. Some charachters like Tony, Bobby, and Felicia becan slipping into backburner status toward the end of the era.  Y&R was strong from about 1989-2001. There was however an inbetween period of 1994-97 where there felt like some drops in storytelling and production value. The camera work became more ornate after 1995 but the glamour factor especially in wardrobe was lost after 93. 
    • I will say the first 7 years are gold especially in terms of production value. Much like Y&R there was a slight quality slump between 1994-97. (In fact all CBS soaps minus Guiding Light maybe faced a alump after 93).  Much like Y&R, 1998-2002 was pretty good IMO.  I'd call it Bold's silver era. Brooke/Thorne/Macy, Brooke/Taylor/Ridge,  Brooke/Deacon/Bridget and Sheila's '02 return are some good storylines from that period. From what I've watched on YT, more trashy, cartoonish and camp than the earlier days of B&B but it's silver compared to today's show. I still need to get into the Rick/Amber/Kimberly/Deacon mess to guve it a solid judgement.
