Spoilers for the week of May 7th
Apr 30 2012, 02:22 PM
I don't know why anyone would be surprised at how an awful mess this show has become. NBC runs Daytime the same way as they run Primetime. The guys at the network are all reactionary instead of VISIONARY --and do things to save their butts instead of plan for the future and take risks.

And this is why cable far surpasses network TV anymore.

Will does come out to Sami on May 15. TV Guide revealed it today.

Bombshell Alert!
"Fans of NBC's Days of Our Lives know Sami Brady's world is all about Sami Brady. So how will this self-centered mama react when she finally finds out her son, Will, is gay? Tune in for the big reveal May 15 because rising star Chandler Massey is sure to hit it do out of the park. Throughout Will's long coming-out story, Massey has been achingly real and utterly fantastic. This is the daytime performance of the year."
I friggin' LOVE the Sami description! And the apt description of Massey. It's so good to see him get the recognition he deserves.

Huge Exits! / Return Rumors?
I left Sony just because it was so heavy-handed in the moderating. Things were really getting ugly there. It broke off into "Fans of so-and-so here. NO BASHING" and all that garbage because people were constantly crying foul. No good discussions at all.

I wonder how long Shane is going to hang around? Is he still with Kimberly? Is there going to be a Billie/Shane thing?
12 episodes...that's all we get of Shane my dear.

SOD: Sami and Lucas Have Sex
You know, I think Sami should pull a Sue Sylvester and just marry herself.

Someone was asking when the last time Nicole and Brady had sex and could this be Brady's baby. Well, considering Nicole isn't 10 weeks pregnant yet, no Brady can't be the father. They haven't had sex since the end of August or maybe early September at the latest, which would make Nicole 7 almost 8 months pregnant. Nope, not Brady's. This baby is EJ's. Nicole knows it and EJ knows it. I do love how Ej doesn't believe her at all and knows it's his and isn't even mad and Nicole for lying about it. That's the nature of their relationship, knowing when the other one is just lashing out or upset and doing irrational things. Perfect match. Now, if only they could work this crap out and we can move past these crappy spoilers, maybe we can get Ejole back.
Were you watching during the time of Mime sex or cold barn sex? If they wanna do it, they'll do it. *sigh* Too bad. I just want Nicole to kick ass single mom style.

On to the spoilers..........I don't know if I'd like Stefano killed off. I have mixed feelings. If he's really, most sincerely dead, then Phoenix should be no more, but there has to be another family to take his place, and so far, I don't know if they're giving Ian enough to do.

Please stop posting to tell us you're over our arguments or that you don't care. It's not relevant, and it's condescending.

Also, this is not a fanbase board. If you can't handle that people don't like your favorites, you probably don't need to be here. The one-upping one another needs to stop. It's generally off topic, and it's baiting.

We are capable of having some really good conversations here when people defend their favorites based on their own merits and don't try to deflect to other characters. Try it some time.
Lysie, I would like to apologize for my tirade earlier.

Have you people lost your collective marbles? The baiting and insulting and commenting on others' posts has been out of control (moreso than usual), and not just in this thread but in others too. Many of you have been posting here long enough that you should know what crosses the line.

KIAN! I can't wait for the chemistry! (Yes, I can be a jackass sometimes).

Seriously, I'm hoping that something will entice me to watch again. I haven't watched for three weeks. I can't take this bouncing back and forth with no rhyme nor reason, I don't care WHO gets put together. I like a plot, a consistent plot, character development and character reasoning, and good writing, dammit! If there was a good reason for all of this, I would tolerate anything, almost, for good writing and mystery and intrigue that gets me a Friday cliffhanger and leaves me anxious for a weekend to be over with. I refuse to be a rah-rah girl. I'm glad that makes some happy, but TV isn't worth it for me.
The damn intrigue isn't there. I can't even care about characters that I remember from my teen and college years, which was longer ago than some of you were alive. I can't CARE about Maggie or Hope or Stephano or Jennifer or even Jack or Nicole anymore. It's been ruined. Aliron said some time ago that the fanbase stuff had sort of ruined things, and you know what? I agree. Dr. Phil me all you want. It's my weakness and boredom that makes me come back to comment on this stuff anyway.
And this stuff, these debates and postings? I miss my buddies who don't want to get sucked into this.
My avatar is there for a purpose.
I don't dislike anyone on the board, but I am sure tired of these never-ending oneupmanship things and some who just seem to show up for their rah-rah sessions. Seriously. I need to go read the newspaper. When someone wants to just discuss the show and those other poor characters that are getting neglected, even though I feel they deserve more attention, let me know.
New things to do: actually work on my PhD stuff and forget about relaxing beforehand on a board, read Time Magazine, poke my eyes out with a dull pencil...............
Sorry, I just had to rant about this. I don't know what good it will do. It never does. And, kudos to those of you who realize there are other characters in life besides Sami and her never-ending entourage of penises. God help those actors who have to play off of that. They'll never cut a break.

An Evening with DAYS; Hosted by Ali Sweeney

Nice of Alison to give her time to help promote DOOL.
She takes on more responsibility than the other actors.
You mean she takes on more responsibility that will get in the media.
Your comment is dissing those who do charity work and other work that doesn't make it into People magazine or SOD.
Being an actor on Days doesn't mean you have to live and breathe Days. I give kudos to those actors who are out there helping people and supporting charities quietly, without drawing attention to themselves.

It reminds me of Matthew 6:5

ďAnd when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward."

You know, maybe she's sincere. But it just seems like she does it to make sure others KNOW she's doing it.

Good news/bad news depending on who you are fan of. This is per a fan that want to the fan even yesterday with Wally and others including Galen. I also saw similar tweets from others. As Justin/Adrienne/Sonny fan I am very happy. Sounds like there will be others in the 38+ that could be cut as it seems to be NBC that keeps interfering.

1) MA just said they(nbc) don't want people over 38 and the producers don't agree http://pic.twitter.com/Ma3Gztkg Also said he films into May.

2) http://pic.twitter.com/ym2uSdQo

3) They're editing Justin and Adrienne in. Wally just said "no we're not getting cut. We're actually being added" and, Per Wally and Judi, gay story continuing....slowly.

4) Galen's over 38

5) GG about dirty soap "it's done. Thank god"

6) WK: Judi and Wally are doing episodes in two weeks. "someone has to be the parents of that gay boy"

7) He said SR did a heartbreaking scene recently
Yay, Justin and Adrienne! I really like those two.

I wish that the word 'slut' would be removed from our vocabulary--or at least applied equally to men. I just find it a degrading word that is used to keep women down. That being said, how is EJ not a slut? He's not yet divorced, Nicole is knocked up, yet he's kissing on Sami. And what about Lucas?! His engagement is barely over and he's shagging Sami less than a week later. I know it's just bad writing, but I wish some relationships, as others here have said, could get a proper ending and some breathing room before others begin.
I wish we could have a thesarus link tagged here and locked. I'm tired of that word, too, along with bitch, whore........you name it. Got to get creative here!

From Thesarus.com:

call girl, concubine, courtesan, fallen woman, floozy, hooker, hussy, lady of the evening, loose woman, nymphomaniac, painted woman, slut, streetwalker, strumpet, tramp, whore

But, I agree with you. Sami doesn't take money for her actions. Unfortunately, I put "manwhore" in the thesaurus, and there are no other words for it.
There is such a double standard in life. "Bastard" can suffice, since technically, he IS a bastard.

Someone has gota say it, I love Alison's acting. The sparkle, the sadness, the loss, the happiness, she can do it all. The writers created the personality of Sami, and Alison does a good job giving it to us.
Alison is the reason I started to watch DOOL, say once every 6 months. When I caught her with James Scott in 07, I had to look up all of their interactions, learn all their story lines.
I am old, love "Gone with the Wind" and I see the Ejami story has the same quality.
I would not watch any of the other actors or story lines, but still watching for Ej and Sami to work out their feelings for each other.

I have read GWTW several times, and not once did Rhett kidnap Wade, Ella, or Bonnie and tell Scarlett her child was dead. He never tried to shoot Gerald or remove his kidney. He never planned to run Suellen or Carreen down and kill her. He never cloned Ashley. And he did not rape her, as the movie implies. The BOOK tells us what happened on the way up those stairs.

And Scarlett never shot him in the head.

Ejamo are NOTHING like them. For any parallel, I suggest the porn literature.
It's hard enough to agree on Days as it is - do we seriously have to get into a Gone With The Wind debate?
I mean, seriously. Plus, Vivien Leigh, in my opinion, was the better actor. And since when would Sami get off her duff and get a job without it landing in her lap? Scarlett had BRAINS. Sami wouldn't shoot the thievin' Yankee.......she'd make Melanie do it for her. Cause you know why? He wasn't asleep.
Yeah, I can see Sami digging in the dirt to get old, rotten food and eat it. I could definitely see her picking cotton. I could see her helping Melanie (read; Nicole, Carrie, or whoever) birth a baby.
Please, don't sully one of my favorite books that way. Yeah, Scarlett and three kids and Sami four, but three pregnancies. Yeah, they are both spoiled brats. But, Scarlett also continually lost her social standing, while people kiss Sami's feet, both men and women. The only ones who call Sami on her bluff are the ones who get bashed for calling her on her bluff, except for Marlena. Scarlett never dissed her pa (or, if she had one, her step-pa).
Yup, Scarlett did neglect her kids somewhat, but she still had a favorite. Sami pays squat attention to the kids of her so-called love of her life, unless it brings dramatic attention to her.
And, if you REALLY want to make a comparison, go all the way with it. In the end, Rhett got burned out with Scarlett's playing and toying with her heart. So you know, EJ has to do that, too.
If you're counting the sequel, that was a stupid book, in my opinion. The only reason they wrote it was so Margaret Mitchell's estate could have control before copyright expired. And it was a piss-poor job that has died away from literary history. I haven't heard anyone who liked it. As far as I'm concerned, Rhett got tired and Scarlett blew her chance. I'd LOVE to see Sami blow all her chances.

I wonder, if they bring Belle and Shawn back, if we can have triangle angst for them so that maybe a different Marlena daughter can have some fanbase focus on HER for once? It would SO be worth it! And I was never a Shelle fan, but if it could take attention away from Sami for once, I would throw a thousand roses at them and send them chocolate cake every month.

cute group pic.
Boy, Galen looks handsome.
Notice how both James and Galen are turning gray?
That's not surprising, considering what they probably have to go through doing this job, with the topsy-turvy background drama, fan stress, and the worry about whether the ax is going to fall on them. Yeah, they're probably safe, but you never know........
