How many chances do you give the same actor/character before it's time to backburn or let go? Sure it's not just EM's fault, it's a combination of a bad actor with bad writing. How many times are they gonna do a "Brady hooked on drugs or alcohol" story? Or will they try to make him the Kiriakis heir again? Like a few years ago when TPTB pretty much kicked Philip out of the K Mansion and Titan and had Brady take over the business and running things. Brady will end things with Melanie and Theresa, Nicole will be his rebound for a few weeks, then the next woman comes along. It's the same thing over and over with him.

The character is a mess.
How many times has EM been paired with the very strong soap actors? three? Did they work(except maybe AZ)? It's not only the writings that suck but the actor/character too.

They took EVERYTHING form Jay/Philip Kiriakis and gave it to Brady Black, Philip's business, his house, his role in the Kiriakis family, durn they even took his father Victor Kiriakis and gave it to Brady Black and they went even fiurther and gave Philip's ex child wife to Brady(not that I object :lol: every time I watched Philip/Melanie I was tempted to call police :laugh: ).

Love your post.

EM is not the reason Brady doesn't work for me. The actor is your garden-variety soap actor. He's charming and good looking. Although, unnaturally ripped body is such a turn off for me. Give me a soccer player's body and I swoon...but I digress. Getting back to Brady, I can't stand the character because he's about nothing. I am not invested in him, and his trials and tribulations because he's a big nothing man-child who's being coddled left, right and center by everyone. Supposedly, he's a CEO of an international company but we never see him deal with business related matters. He doesn't even seem to be working most of the time. The only indication that he works is when he has to take a call from Hong Kong. He never faces any consequences for his actions because everyone excuses his behavior and treats him like a little boy. He can attempt to murder people or act like a spoilt spiteful brat, and no one makes him accountable. Even his addiction doesn't give him character growth. It just starts suddenly and ends as soon as the drama ends. And as far as I know his addiction is always about a girl and then grandpa and daddy run around trying to fix things for him. Supposedly he's a romantic hero but I don't see a single redeemable quality.
For sure, in fact soccer players(as we call them football players in EU) and all F1 drivers have such a groueling training and diet that EM can't ever come close and they don't look like that, it's impossible to have a body like that natural way.

Victor hands over all of the Kiriakis businesses to Philip. These are my favorie scenes with Victor & Philip together. John and Jay were excellent, the scenes were also well produced and directed with good music.

It reminded me the father(Vito Corleone) / son(Michael Corleone) scene from the "Godfather"

I always have a respect for Dena for writing Philip kiriakis(my all time favorite soap actor JKJ and character Philip Kiriakis) the way he should have always been written.

This is my favorite Philip Kiriakis story.

DR wants to know....
My favorite family is(at least it used to be until Victor Kiriakis lost his brain sells not so long ago) Kiriakis(and this is because of Jay, if it wasn't for him The Italian family would be my number1 choice)
Philip/Kate/Victor Kiriakis , loved them.

When Kate tried to kill Victor with the fire poker(unfortunately she failed) and burned the Kiriakis mansion down.

How long will it be till Tomsell are back, six months, one year or just they would come back right after fiftieth anniversary?
Oh man, I'm sure NBC/Ken and others will hire them back because they are the worst DAYS writers ever, they are to me.
Meh, any tiny hope I had for the show just flew out of the window, I don't wish them luck good or bad, they already have what they deserve.

100% Tomlin had it out for JKJ and Philip...the character of Philip started to drastically change and do things he would never do almost as soon as Tomlin showed up....ultimately even Parker was taken away from that character.

To this day I refuse to accept that Parker is Daniel's...to me he will always be Philip & Chloe's.
Philip has two sons, one with Mimi and another with Chloe. That's how it will always be.

Tomsell, especially Tomlin hates Jay and Philip Kiriakis. One of the main reasons Jay left was when Tomsell took Titan away from him and gave it to Brady Black(never understood why Brady needed Kiriakis empire when he's the son Of John Black, the legacy/good character), and Philip was just left pining for Melanie(the actress who has zeeeeeeeeeeeeeeero sex appeal and the character is just plain stupid).And I think Dena tried to fix a little bit by giving Phloe a son and directing Phlip towards Chloe/to his age group but then She was fired and all went to hell. Also , the funny thing is that even Victor Philip's biological father never showed any concerns regarding Parker or Titan, that's why Victor to me is the biggest joke of this show, if you can's stand by/love your own son who worships you than you can't love others.

Philip needs to come back with the vengeance and kick everyone out of Kiriakis business/mansion especially his dumb father. He also needs to bring his sons back.

I prefer her to Tomsell much more, during their reign all my favs either were destroyed or gone. Now I can come back and watch the show if she does justice to my favs.
So here I'm happy. :laugh:
