<peeks out from under table> Eek ok,ok...I take it back! lol Going for the zany redhead comparison and the fact that she is actually pretty good at comedy! Actually Carol Burnett came to mind but I don't recall her ever doing the "little girlish thing". My point, although very poorly made obviously, is they are not writing her to her strengths and it is unfair to all involved.

<back under table>
I understood the comparison perfectly. I knew you were doing the red hair, comedy and spunky angle, not acting angle. It does make me wish they would just stick to MB doing comedy in supporting. At least she's pretty good at that and she wouldn't be forced in our faces like parents force their 5 years olds to eat their vegetables.
It is funny how this is a running theme (and a sad one) in some soaps. Take Farah Fath in One Life. She's best suited with the comedy stuff, but when they throw her in dramatic roles.........Eeks, for the most part. I guess soaps dont' have time to take actor's strengths into consideration, but when they try to make them top dog when they're only ready to be the side dish mini weinies......

MB is a Lucille Ball. Lucy's are unique and special in their own right and shouldn't be forced into dramatic scences of which they have no business being. It is unfair to the actress and dare I say to the viewers and her scene partners. Lucy's are rare so give the girl the correct material and let her shine in a good way!
Words can't describe how I feel about MB being compared to Lucille Ball.
I can think of a few words to describe it, almost all of them of the four-letter variety.

Ok, so the poor girl can't help her teeth. But, THAT picture. That is so forced. That's the thing. If she just didn't seem so fake with her smiling. I have actually seen her smile without all that, and it's a pretty smile. Someone along the way must have told her that big gummed smile was adorable, and she's milking it for all it's worth.

I love Maggie. That's all.

And putting the word "Brilliant" in the same sentence with either one of them? Don't think so....

EJ will fall on his feet again. He always does :wub:
I think you meant to say "he lands on his feet".

I could definitely see him falling on his feet. He has managed to fall or fail in nearly every weird thing he has ever tried. I cannot think of one single success when he has been manipulative. When he was upfront, like saving the twins from Andre, he was different.

I think the writers are like Kenny. They want to piss on him.
I had refrained from saying something, but I think I will....
I'd rather see him fall on his ass, but I think fall is an appropriate verb in regards to our beloved Mr. Dimera's state of mind and its ultimate consequences.

At least she spent some jail time. When was the last time EJ was in jail, considering all he's done?
She had to serve jail time. Ari went on maternity leave. :laugh:
Hmmmm, I see. Too bad they didn't use that route for Sami somehow. :P Maybe we'd actually have a chance to miss her instead of being sick to death of her.

I know that EJ will never go to prison for this but I really hope that Days doesn't just drop his masterminding this whole thing. It will be an insult to the viewers, almost as much as the dead not being dead years ago.
Or the guilty like Nicole receiving a full fledged pardon?

Now, let's say Vivian had dementia.
That might explain Victor's crack to Vivian that she had taken the "longest walk ever by a senior citizen" (or something to that effect). That line startled me a bit. Actually acknowledging a character is six months away from turning 70?? You don't hear that often on soaps....heck on TV for that matter.....
You don't have to be senior citizen to have forms of dementia. Besides, I don't really consider 70 elderly anymore, and that's not because I'm just on this side of 50. I see a lot of vibrant 70 year olds who are doing better than I am!
Vivian, with her eccentricies, has probably been dancing on just this side of some type of disorder for a long time.

She talks about talking with both Crystal and Shawn on twitter and that they couldnít talk much before the big reveal because they didnít want anyone to know.

This cracked me up. One, we all knew months in advance. Two, every tweet Molly writes about the show is spoilerish, so please don't try to make us believe "they didn't want anyone to know" cause we ain't buyin' it.
Really. If she wanted to discuss it with Crystal and Shawn so much, why don't they just flippin TEXT? I guess there's no three way that way.
Modern technology just slays me sometimes.

The only way Ejami can grow closer is if Sami actually has real feelings for EJ. That is never going to happen. First they arent going to let anything touch their precious Safe or taint it in any way. Second EJ's lies negate anything that actually happens between Ejami. So they have there out. Once Sami finds out she will run back to rafe and get on her knees to beg for his forgiveness. So all this is pointless and a waste of time. If anyone thinks Ejami has a chance in hell of working are delusional and in for quite a shock. So I would set those bars very very very very low when it comes to them. They aint happening. That is why Im not worried they will actually happen. Im just frustrated because they are wasting actors and giving us boring lame storylines. I watch shows to be entertained and this isnt entertaining.
I totally agree, Tina. Who knows, the writers may throw a few bones out to the ejami fans to keep them happy, but IMO, the handwriting is on the wall for SAFE. I think it is SAFE to say that Rafe will be the one to figure out what EJ has been up to, with the help of Anna and Nicole, and expose EJ to not only Sami, but everyone else. Stefano will know what his son has done and let him stew in his own juices for going against him and trying to take Sydney away from him. Sami will be eternally greatful to Rafe and they will be reunited. Sami has no romantic feelings for EJ-- she loves Rafe and has already stated she wants him around forever.
Well, Sami DOES tend to fall in love with the "hero". I fear if she's like the Sami of old, she might think she loves EJ because he brings Sydney home, which of course, is what EJ wants. Actually, it will be a good story so when the shit hits the fan, :shithitfan: we might see the old Sami come back and cut EJ's balls off after she finds out what happened. I just wish I was really convinced Sami cared about Sydney as more than another kid trophy.

I'm curious as to what the Mitch/Sierra connection is. Mitch is really Schuyler's father (and he still thinks he's the daddy?) Gigi and Stacy's mom was a Mitch minion in her younger days and she had a fling with Mitch? FISH'S mom was a former minion? Stacy bedded a third guy we don't know about? (A retcon?)
I want Brody and Jess back together (waah) Brody and Layla would look rather odd height-wise.
Hannah needs to go away now. Yeah, I'm not giving her a chance, but the teen scene has their hands full enough with that cretin Ford.

Im glad that Sydney will be home, and while *for now* EJ may be in Sami's good graces... This really changes nothing, She loves Rafe, she will still go home and make love and rejoice with the man she loves. Everything will be status quo with them sharing custody .. Until the truth comes out.. And it will. Stephano will know what EJ did.. and no doubt Rafe will suspect something.

Sydney coming home wont make Sami change who she loves.

What I think will be fun is watching Stephano exact his revenge on EJ for what he did.
I agree. This is changes nothing, which is another one of Ej's mistakes and probably why Anna told him that he really didn't think this whole new plan through enough. I am sure Sami will be greatful to EJ for bringing Sydney home, and she will try to be cordial with him about custody,etc., but she still LOVES RAFE. Bringing Sydney home won't change that, but it may force EJ to go on with other more diabolical plans to break them up.
Well then let the diabolical EJ games begin !!! :dance:
Just as long as he isn't wishy-washy. It's getting old. Dang, I'd hate for this EJ to defend me in court.

Hope its Tony.I see no need for Dr Baker...unless he somehow,handled Mel adoption,,otherwise,I see no point.Lawrence,I like MS,but wouldnt all this stuff with Viv be for naught if he was really alive.We know Sydney is NOT dead,so its not her.I hope its Tony..but thats just me
It seems pretty obvious that Vivian will likely have a brain tumor or something. Plus it didn't stop the Salem Stalker victims appearing as ghosts when they were really alive.
Is it the Lawrence visions that make it obvious? Because hasn't Carly been seeing him, too? Do they have matching brain tumors? I think they could easily get around the ghost, as just being an inner voice that had taken the form of Lawrence for both of them.
Maybe they just drank the same Lawrence kool-aid? :shrug:
The brain tumor theory is nice except for what you pointed out. However, don't put it past TPTB to totally disregard the fact that Carly had these images, too. But, with any reasoning, it's not a tumor. We've had enough drastic illness for a couple of years.
Now, let's say Vivian had dementia. Carly's visions are due to guilt, but Vivian has a dementia or something that had her totally obsessed with Lawrence in a creepy way.
Naaaawww. It's just the Passions connection.

I would still have to say that the DJ death was one of the highlights of Dee's career for me. Granted, this is from someone who sporatically watched in the 80's and didn't watch in the 90's, so I know I'm missing huge chunks of time, but it was so awesomely done. I still get a lump in my throat thinking about it. It was during a time when a lot of attention was on crib death, or SIDS, lots of rumors, lots of speculation, and lots of baby monitors and breathing apparatuses flying off the shelves! It showed that Days COULD handle something socially relevant and do it realistically and not as a nasty plot device.

Woohoo LawyerJustin hopefully will come out and play. I hope Carly agrees to allow Justin to help her and let him be her lawyer.

Bring on Justin/Hope and Justin/Carly. :)
I'd just like to see Justin back on as someone besides the jerk it looked like he was going towards for a while. With no Mickey and with EJ pretty well falling off the deep end, Salem needs another lawyer-of-all-trades.

Never mind.
what were you going to say?
I was going to make a comment about Nielsons, DVDs, and the fact that watching the show shouldn't be an all or nothing thing and that I can enjoy some of it without having to put up with the Gum Model.
