Days: November 2015 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Baby child Chad who has a heart of gold for Abby? *sigh* EJ was the only viable way to continue the Dimera's reign of terror. He's gone and so too should they have been at least TEN years ago sans EJ.

Trying to catch up with Days as I was fan who went astray after the awful 2011 reboot but I've been watching the past few weeks now: 

 

It was actually nice to see Martha Madison today she looked good and I'm curious as to how this Shawn and Belle story will play out.

 

The DiMera story is just ridiculous I'm at a loss what to think about. 

 

I guess I didn't realize til I looked it up but I didn't realize Chad had been recast since I last watched. How do you guys like this Chad compared to the previous one? For some reason I always associate Chad as being Will's first boyfriend that never happened.

He's fabulous. Best recast in a long time IMO.

Billy Flynn is fine as nuChad, but I don't think Chad has what it takes to be part of the next generation of DiMeras.  They need to undo that paternity twist.

Ah, yes.  Chill.  Those were the DAYS.  ;)

Tony and Stefano strike me as laughable villains. Little Sami stole all their money. Tony looks all bloated. Stefano looks disabled. No offense to bloated or disabled villains in real-life. It's just seems OFF that they haven't been killed off yet and that they are still managing to wreck havoc. Meh. It's weak.

 

Agree.  I think DAYS wants to continue the DiMera family empire with Andre and with Chad -- but if you ask me, they should just quit while they're behind.

DAYS has had several opportunities to transition the Dimeras to the next generation and every last one of them has been about a female Dimera and every last one of those possibilities has been squandered. Kristen flew out of a window, Lexie died of a tumour and Kate made a 180 out of the Dimera universe. Had the writers transitioned the family name into a female dynasty it would have flourished but the show is too stuck to its own bad habits and stuck on people like Thaao Penghlis who can't shoulder a storyline on his own.

I forgot about Kristen. Eileen would have been a huge improvement over TP.

 

So Joey is setting up his parents to be a family again. I barely watch S/K and I could deduce that after their talk today ... and S/K can't?

They positively wasted Eileen's last 10 episode return but her 2012/13 work was incredible. She would have been a far more effective part of the show than any other Dimera.

I still wish Sheffer hadn't squandered Benjy at this point. 

 

Thanks for the info on Chad alas I stopped watching Days altogether in late 2011/early 2012 between the preposterous twist of Sami sleeping with EJ out of grievance and making it seem like Roman/Marlena/John 2.0 and of course the EJ paternity twist god MarDar were terrible writers. I only watched briefly last year just to see how EJ and Sami would go out before I quit again until this past September.

Didn't Benjy have a wife and kids when he died?  Or did I fanwank that?

I want to say that's accurate but to be honest 2003-present is one big hot mess so I'm not sure.

 He had a wife, Sonia and a child, Steven. Steven, however, was never shown on-screen.

LMAO at Anne being an uber-bitch towards Theresa. Love it.

 

Ugh. Brady. You ARE a [!@#$%^&*] moron when it comes to women. Victor is right. Brady, remember someone named Kristen? Or how everyone else you get involved with dies, leaves town or loves someone else. I'd rather they write for Eric over Brady. Higley clearly prefers Brady.

 

LOL at the fumes getting to Steve and Kayla. Loved her bursting out laughing at "BlackPatch". Really enjoying this. So much of these little interactions were missing last time, IMO. I'm really starting to dig them again. I think she told him about the pot-laced book party but I only caught the very end so I'm not sure. That remains one of my all-time favorites.

 

Wow, rare appearances by JJ, Gabi (who have a date at the pub over wine), Kate, Nicole and Paul at the Brady Pub. But ugh at Daniel and his Aussie clone being on. Why does this dude remind me of Justin Gaston (Ben #1) mixed with Justin Melvey (Colin). And that's not a compliment.

It's so bad that I don't renemies most of what happened over the past 10 years outside of the ongoing like especially of EJ, Sami,  and Daniel 

 

That's because they ate up the entire show and everyone else got scraps. People kept saying 2009 was great because of the babyswitch but all I saw was Daniel, Rafe and Sami propping everywhere I turned.

How do you guys like this Chad compared to the previous one? For some reason I always associate Chad as being Will's first boyfriend that never happened.

Preach. Billy Flynn has been amazing. Such a find.
