  And, ya, Bill & Laura should absolutely be recurring on a basis similar to Doug & Julie, though I wouldn't use Jamie Lynn Bauer.

I am interesting in knowing who you would use.

Eli is an unlikable bore. He adds nothing to the show. His ties to the Horton clan have been completely forgotten. I don't even remember to last time he shared scenes with his grandmother Julie. 

I forget every time he is in scenes with Hope that she is his Aunt. 🤦🏾‍♂️ Did he even met Shawn Douglas?

He confirmed it on Instagram. Just wonder what year he'll reappear onscreen. 

 

He does psycho beautifully. Too bad there isn't some way to keep around, if only for a long story arc. 

YYYYAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

 

Okay...carry on. :D

With the Winter Olympics coming soon, I have to ask: how will NBC handle the DAYS during the Winter Olympics? Basically are they gonna just preempt it till the Olympics are over, or are they gonna upload it to NBC.com every day to keep the story going?

 

This the first Olympics since I came back to DAYS, so I’m clueless to how they handle DAYS during Olympic periods

I think there will be some pre-emptions but don't recall how much. I know Jason who posts on this board posted it on his Facebook account a while back.

Of all of the black characters on the show, Abe is the only one who has a real inner life, and that's a huge problem. You could swap out Val, Lani, and Eli for any generic character of any color, and the stories would feel the same. Theo was at least an interesting concept hampered by a green actor in KP, and RC is shipping him out.

Val, Lani and Eli should be *so* much more as characters.

 

We rarely see Val and Abe together having a deep conversation. We don't really see Val involved in the Eli/Lani thing (yet, I guess). We know Abe likes Eli and they played it here and there but there should be more. There needs to be more depth added.

And we need to see Eli forming stronger bonds with the other Hortons so that the stakes are higher when the paternity secret is revealed. That way, Eli has more to lose (his newfound family).

Forgot to mention that but yep, Eli needs more airtime with the Hortons.

They definitely need to use Vanessa Williams more. You've got her; now USE her. 

They're doing the same mistake with her as they did with Renee Jones for so many years. Wasting her on boring old Abe.

I actually pity Lani. She didn't know whether JJ/Gabi were sleeping together and she made one mistake. What I don't like was JJ bullying her out of an abortion as a way to absolve his guilt for the Theo thing. Why must a woman's reproductive choices be influenced by a man? This is why soaps are on life support. Seriously? Lani is a cop and looked stable in her career. She didn't need a reminder of a mistake which ultimately could be pointed back to JJ's poor choices.

I don't feel sorry for her. Why should I? Anyways why should she feel guilty? She and JJ had already broken up. So Lani feeling all betrayed about JJ's cheating didn't make sense. The one that actually cheated was Eli.
