We can't win. Seriously.

 

Corday always [!@#$%^&*] it up.

 

I kinda wonder if they brought him back after Greg Vaughan decided to exit. To 'fill the void' if you will (though I'd rather take literally anyone else; what about Mike Horton? No one even cares about Mike anymore and he'd be lost on new viewers but it's crazy he's had nothing on this show since 1999 aside from returning in 2010). I'd rather have Bryan Dattilo on contract, but that would never happen because we can't have nice things.

The actor seems like a sweet guy. But what can possibly be left for this character to do? I feel like he hasn't had much of a point for years.

Yup, I said it before, but when they did the time jump I wanted them to properly tie up all the storylines and then do a major overhaul of the canvas (add fresh blood, straighten out family trees, drop pointless characters) - Rafe is deadwood and has been for... well, since when wasn't he?

 

On the plus side, I guess Galen is a nice guy so there's that.

As did I. I've wanted an overhaul of the canvas for a long time now too. I thought we were getting it but not really. 

 

I like Galen. I've just never cared for Rafe. The only time I liked him was when he was with Jordan and Kate, honestly, and briefly before that when he was just a single snarky cop, that worked best. Otherwise Rafe is useless. They've thrown him in certain pairings (Sami; Hope) that really never worked. Why couldn't they just cut their losses? I feel like Ron has no interest in Rafe, and rightfully so. Rafe is deadweight.

 

I wonder if they do Rafe/Nicole ...

 

I also did not need or want Marci Miller back as Abigail. I swear anytime I get interested in DAYS again they do everything they can to turn me off again. Can we get a Chabby break? For real this time?

Controversial opinion (?), but I like Marci Miller as Abby. She has that classic soap opera heroine thing going on that I enjoy.

 

There are so many things I would do to DAYS if I had the chance though - one of those is to finally straighten out the family trees. Viewers should not need a [!@#$%^&*] chart to figure out how everyone relates to each other to begin with. And in all honesty - I'd drop the DiMera's, their wacky plots and back-from-the-dead potions. I'd also make things matter in the long run - not pointless medical emergencies that lasts for three weeks and gets forgotten; daytime soaps are blessed with the ability to explore all aspects thanks to airing five times a week. Unt so weiter, unt so weiter....

 

But anyway, I'm just ranting.

I just woke up and saw this horrible news. Somehow a broke Days found some to get boring Rafe back. Looks like Sonny will be back too.

Didn't he play a love interest of sister Jennifer, who quickly & conveniently turned psycho on her? 

 

Side note: with DAYS' 55th anniversary coming up in November which they have yet to film, I'm glad their tape date vs air date are close. It was crazy how their 50th anniversary was filmed at the beginning of 2015 and by the time they were promoting the anniversary in November, they were all secretly in the depths of despair about the quality of the show, as it took a dark turn in 2016.

I loved Roark Critchlow as Mike, so I wondered what he looked like. (He’s steadily worked but I don’t remember seeing him elsewhere.) He’s definitely... matured. But, as it’s been like 25 years since he and Carrie got together, dude is almost 60 (he’s around the same age as Michael T. Weiss - which I was semi-surprised to learn as I thought it was a de-SORASing).

OK, so what happened to Roark Critchlow?  I was just on his IG and he is a stuttering mess.  I don't remember him acting this way before.

I thought he was aging quite well the last time I saw him. (either on V or some CW show knowing me) so that is sad to hear.

    • I get that the BAFTAs have a bias toward Brits, but oh snap.       Worth noting that BAFTA didn’t nominate Carey Mulligan (!), Viola Davis, or Andra Day for Best Actress, so grain of salt when it comes to the Oscars:     The greatest of locks:     Chloe Zhao won Best Director in addition:    
    • It's true that the character's latest major story was winding down, but DAYS was insane to let Alexander's contract expire. She was one of daytime's biggest stars, and one of the most popular actresses by far on the show. It was hard adjusting to her replacement. Bennye Gatteys might have been fine playing another role, and she was an adequate actress overall, but she lacked the intensity and charisma and star appeal that Alexander was blessed with. It was like watching Linda Borgenson  on AW, Victoria Mallory on Y&R or Daniel Pilon on TGL: they simply did not live up to the original actors in their roles. Susan Martin never regained the popularity she had had when Denise Alexander played her. The character started being seen less and less, and then disappeared completely, without even a write-off scene. IIF recall correctly, the last time we saw Susan was at Doug and Julie's wedding in 1976, after being MIA for months. It was a disappointing way to discard a character who had once been hugely important to Salem.      I know this will sound caustic (I honestly don't mean it to be), but who the heck is Lesley Jordan, and why should we give credence to this person's assessment of Frann's character? I've honestly never heard anyone bad-mouth Frann in the last 50 years, LOL. (On the other hand, there are  some actors who have been rumored to feud with people regularly.)
    • I feel like I would’ve been more invested had Uk not aired at the same time and been such a joyous show. They need to take a page out of the BBC and do a more genuine season that isn’t driven by shocks and producer manipulation to keep it interesting. 
    • Yuh-Jung Youn just won the Supporting Actress BAFTA, which is a boost for her Oscar prospects. Would be only the second actress of Asian descent (to my knowledge) to win an Oscar after Miyoshi Umeki for Sayonara in 1958.
