Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
Somehow there was lots of Melanie stuff (and even stupid Brelanie) even though MB had only signed for 6 months.
One year is enough to write a solid storyline - Tomlin/Whitesell did it with ED/Kristen.
Oh, and PR/Bo got a decent 3-month storyline.
But there really wasn't. She didn't even have her own story really.
Who? Kristen?
I guess it depends on the definition of the term "story" we use. The criteria to see something as "a story" can differ depending on that.

Either way if we compare the writing for Kristen (2012-2013) and Gabi (2015-2016), it's obvious that it is possible to do much more with a character in a year than they they've done with Gabi so far (it might change soon, though).

I, personally, liked her explanation :D .
It wasn't an accurate explanation whether you love it or hate it.
It's how Nicole sees it. Subjective.

But yes, I agree with the poster who said Nicole shouldn't talk about Brady's love life to Dario. :D

Brady and Summer...
As bad as this s/l is I still like them better than Brady and Theresa.
JMO, Brady/EM has more chemistry with a brick wall than he has with Theresa/JL.
Brady may say the "right" words, but the character's non-verbal (body) language often shows Brady's annoyance with Theresa (I don't mean the actors - only their characters).

What a boring episode :sleep2: .

Even Jabi's first time :shame: . Where's romance? It's a soap after all.

Did they change the situation between Theresa and Brady today? Did Nicole tell Theresa that she (Theresa) wanted to be Brady's girlfriend and Brady was basically with Theresa because of Tate? And if that's what Nicole said, then what happened to Brady being with Theresa because he's in love with her and not just because she's the mother of his son?
I think this is just Nicole's warped take on the relationship. Thrady are on love and share a bed,a home and a baby together. Now if they changed it, maybe for a Theresa/Brady/Summer triangle. But its not consistent with what's been shown the past few months. Right now I only see Brady trying to be a friend to Summer the way Dan was. Could Summer mistake it for something else...probably
After reading the recap, Nicole was explaining to Dario who Theresa was to Brady.
I, personally, liked her explanation :D .

So JJ and Gabi were on for like 2 seconds? Maybe I'll go clean my bathroom or something equally as fun. Sigh.
Well they did have a pretty racy sex scene for daytime. I can't remember the last time it was shown that a woman had her bra off or at least pulled far down during sex. The Y&R always have the actresses keep their bras on. lol
Ejabby in the shower
Wasn't there a similar Brelanie sex scene as well (not shower lol)? It's probably the actors' choice.

I honestly believe the reason we have barely seen JJ and Gabi and the reason they have no story is because CM only signed for a year. I think it was a "wait and see" thing and if she didn't end up getting any other gigs, she would stay. I remember reading she was in at least one pilot so chances are she has some projects and will be leaving again. I just wish the show didn't bother building up a pairing for her until they knew whether she would stay beyond a year. I would've just focused on her drama with her family and the fallout from Will's death. Maybe give her a few short story arcs and maybe hint at or lay the groundwork to the romance with JJ and then, once you have an idea that she may be staying, go forward with that.
I don't think it has to do with the fact that she only signed for a year. There are just too many characters and too many stories to tell to find time for everyone. I would have preferred seeing JJ and Gabi over some other characters though. If she does leave, I don't think they've built up JJ and Gabi to the point where it is a big loss, though I tend to think it's always somewhat of a loss when Days loses a promising young pairing.
That may have limited their screentime but I don't think that is why they've been pretty much MIA. Your right there is alot going on but I think we would've seen them a bit more often and maybe involved with some of the other things going on but the show just was reluctant to give them too much focus because they knew CB may not be staying for long. There is also CM to consider. I think he probably has a year left on his contract so there is that to consider.

I mean, these are two characters in their 20's and the show is all about younger characters so there is no way I buy them not giving them more to do no matter how much is going on unless they are uncertain about the future of the actor (s). That is the only thing that makes sense IMO.

Oh and maybe lysies theory last week was right and Stefano knew how dangerous Deimos was and now that he's dead, Deimos is totally unchecked.

Pretty curious the first thing that happens is Marlena is kidnapped.
I was wondering also if Deimos is related to Orpheus in any way? They favor quite a bit and didn't know if that was intentional or if John's father is also Deimos' father and they had different mothers? Or Petrov is Deimos' father. Would love for this to somehow tie back in to orpheus. Also, since Ben broke out ....wouldn't one of the first things they think of is that Ben could have attacked her again?
Isn't Deimos' father Victor's father?

Ratings for February 15-19: Bad week for DAYS & Y & R
Hugo

I made 2 graphs for Days comparing the ratings for Griffith/Higley's first year to Tomlin/Whitesell's final year.

It's interesting to see the big fluctuations in total viewers. It seems like there's a reservoir of half a million viewers that will tune in under certain conditions (good stories? holidays? bad weather?). Meanwhille, the fluctations are smaller in the demo and it's pretty much even compared to last year, which is disappointing.

One of the multiple reasons for relatively big fluctuations may be the fact that a lot of viewers aren't represented in these live+ same day DVR ratings because some of them (who can't watch live because they're working) binge watch the show on weekends or later (hence higher ratings on Holidays when most people don't have to work and can watch live).

Nielsens say they are starting to include watching via mobile devices, I wonder how that's going. It should be important for the ratings in demos.

Yeah...felt bad that Robert was not nominated...Looks like the committee does not see Days on regular basis! :bs: On others who wants to know if Robert is permanent...He may not be....but I am hoping he stays as long as he can in Salem! Maybe Clyde can come back!
I doubt actors watch the shows they're not on. Some of them don't even watch the shows they're on. I have no idea how many judges are from outside the Daytime, they probably don't watch the shows at all.
So they only watch 4 or less minutes of each actor's work for the prenomination round. That's why their decisions are sometimes questionable.

On the other hand, the interviewee says that newcomers will work for anything which means the situation isn't any better in other sectors either.

I think that’s a big problem with soaps nowadays. The villains have been on so much and have been turned into real characters that they are no longer viewed as “villains.” These villains shouldn’t have fans upset that they’re being killed. They’re the bad guys!
^ This!

In my opinion, the DiMeras should never have been a core family for the show. Stefano should have been a recurring character for occasional arcs, but that's all.

I refused to watch GH because they made mobster Sonny Corinthos into a main character with a family. That ruined GH for me.
The thing is, it's a soap and this allows some of us to like/love "villains" (we would never like IRL) be it because we like actors playing them or for any other reason. I don't feel bad for liking a villain on a soap but I have to admit I never liked (or rooted for) villains when I was younger. For some reason I started liking them in my 30s lol.
I wish we had more gray characters instead of cartoonish villains though. I hate when they make a character that could be potentially gray do horrible things, like rape or kill someone.

I am going with blind too. He will think Theresa and Nicole are paranoid in their worries about this woman. Wonder who else suspects she's trouble?
Dario and Fynn already know she is. Probably everyone but Brady will figure that out fairly soon.
I'm not sure what they know though. If they only know she has some mental illness, it shouldn't be a reason to dismiss her as a person (because of these issues).

His writing for Y&R was neither dark nor fast-paced :shrug: .

It is possible that the new HW team was "advised" to pace the stories differently because Tomlin/Whitesell's storytelling was too slow.
Okey?

I'm talking about his writing on Days.
I wasn't trying to say you were wrong. I was just wondering why his writing style for Days was so different from his writing style for Y&R.

5 episodes....so sick of this.

Nothing can get explored fully or in a good way if he is only there for 5 episodes.
That's Josh Griffith for you. Skip important beats and rush through the storylines.
