Days: March 2019 Discussion Thread⌛

Been skipping around episodes and deleting some that are just boring but saw some of Sonny and Will in bed yesterday feeling afterglow and to my surprise Sonny Bear was shirtless...but covering his fat. They later kissed and was it boring with no passion whatsoever. Chandler was kissing and puckering....but Freddie Smith had his lips tight ....like if he didn't want Chandler to kiss him. It was just awful acting by Freddie Smith....just dreadful....

I'm convinced were never going to see FS weight loss. His just going to get bigger and bigger. Until he crushes Will doing one of their passionless lovemaking sessions. But all kidding aside. There's no chemistry or sexuality generating from them. Unlike Paul & Will. Who had a spark too them.  D1enMwRWsAEdRVR?format=jpg&name=small

Rex actually ran out of the shower to answer the door? Who does that? They couldn't come up with a better excuse to get him shirtless?

 

That Shelly chick is the dumbest nurse alive.

 

The Gabi/Stefan stuff is SO forced. They're trying so hard to make it seem like they have chemistry and like there's sexual tension... but they don't and there's not.

And the smiles in that photo? Those are not guys who care about acting. They’re th3 smiles of guys literally laughing at the material — and that’s infuriating. They did a scene with Rikaart and pulled the same crap, while Greg was the only one to truly perform.

 

And no, I can’t give them a pass because the writing isn’t  up to their standards — whatever that is. If you’ve seen Riverdale, you know the plots are ludicrous, yet the actors play it straight and make it work.

 

Chandler and Freddie are not serious actors, and they should both be fired for this garbage. When they leave Days, they’ll never work again.

I'm slowly making my way through the end of February's episodes... re: Sonny/Will... I guess they run out of bronzing shellac after coating down Eric Martsolf and Kyle Lowder, because Chandler and Freddie always look so pasty pale. 

 

I just don't get the motivation. Are they trying to look as home grown slice of life as possible and portraying these guys as unshowered schmucks from po-dunk middle America who don't mean no harm, but just like to bump uglies with each other to keep them "less threatening" to the wary homophobic geriatrics watching?

Regarding when Freddie's weight loss will be evident on screen it will be some time in the summer. When he first started losing a significant amount of weight he was taping summer shows.

 

Also as a Freddie/Sonny fan I do wish he would sport a beard as I think he looks better and actually younger with one. He actually looks older clean shaven, especially when they style his hair certain ways. They have been styling him in a way that makes him look closer to middle age.  I think in IRL he prefers the beard but whenever he has to go and tape after some days off he will often say something like "tomorrow the beard will be gone", which indicates he has to shave it. I don't know if that is his choice, for some reason or maybe someone at the show suggests he does that. I don't know but he's better off with facial hair IMHO.

I’m not going to hate on Freddie’s appearance, but I will say that sometimes when you’re heavier, facial hair can add dimension and shape to your face. When I was carrying a few more pounds, my beard helped contain that formless  facial spread.

I think that beards often help shape/frame many men's facial features nicely. A lot of men look better with beards. (Heck most men may even look better with facial hair.) Here is a couple of recent pics of Freddie with a beard. I think he looks better with this look than the clean shaven look he has on the show:

I'm on the fence about the beard. But he looks good in the second pic. Freddie needs a good haircut that frames his face. The slick back hair ain't working. He also needs better clothes . Those suits make  him look worse.

Keep the trimmed beard and stop slicking the hair back. That’ll improve his look right there. 

 

Chandler needs to comb and use a lil product on his hair, wardrobe needs to lose the 90’s flannel grundge and baggy pants and use some bronzer. If they’re gonna take the time painting Martsolf and Lowder, they can spend the same time on their eunuchs. 

 

It’s 2019. They don’t need to play so safe with their gay couple. They can have traits and interests that aren’t so “regular straight male.”  The one single flamboyant gay with a personality is the oversexed villain. There’s a happy medium somewhere; find it.

The only thing Chandler needs to do is call his local Olive Garden and ask whether they're hiring.

:lol:

 

And can they PLEASE stop fixing his hair like they do. It's so petty of me but I can't stand the bangs. He looks ridiculous. And why do they dress him horribly?

I wish, but it seems all gays must be plain and boring. I don't mind because I'm plain and boring, LOL, but some variety would be really nice. At least Leo's entertaining as hell. But your right, there's a happy medium somewhere. Soaps just aren't progressive. In fact they're often the complete opposite. It's a shame. The format that used to be ahead of it's time can't seem to evolve (a lot of it is viewers not letting them; I doubt the networks care as much, personally)

I don't care about Freddie's weight or beard but they need to stop slicking back his hair. It looks awful and he looks 100x better in all of his Instagram photos where he's not a greased up mess. He's a cute guy and the show makes him look like crap.

It's difficult to stomach the show. I mean, when soaps could talk about real-life social issues for discussion, it was done with a sense of realistic perfection in my opinion. But this immigration storyline is so stupid that I don't see any redemption at all from these characters like Jack and Eve. Or, even Claire for that matter. Jack has amnesia or whatever, but Eve and Claire have internalized microaggressions and racial biases towards people of color? Seriously. Get the #*c! out of here.

 

I do not like the character of Sarah probably because she's Maggie's daughter, but she's also so irritating that I want to smack her hard into next week. And "couples" on this show get paired together like instant coffee it's pathetic. For example, you expect ME, a DAYS viewer, to root for Chloe and Stefan when all that happened to Stefan was that he got lightly shot by the side of his arm from "an evil-doer Mexican"? Wait. I think I just discovered another racial undertone on this show, and I'm merely here trying to talk about how pathetic the writers are by their lack of character development. And now Hope sees a new light in Ben? Give me a break.
