SoapNet.......Ciara is such a cutie. And Lauren is doing well with the beats of a child who has heavy things on her heart.
OK, Sonny and Sami went well together.
OK, John...............your cheese done slid off your cracker, bro.

Since DAYS has been so good about throwing these out there (and since there's no place else to put them other then burying them inside episode discussion threads), I thought a specially dedicated thread would be a good idea.

Anyway, I just saw these...

I'm going to take that last one. I LOVED that line!

Allie did look at her parents like she was a little mute puppet, didn't she? Poor kid. So accomodating.
Ciara is awesome.
And loved the Lumi stuff. They just work so WELL together!

Bryan Dattilo taken off contract; will remain on recurring basis
This bothers me. Lucas was always a character that I rooted for. He just has this way with Sami that makes her tolerable for me. It's like they think Lucas can't do anything without Sami, and they don't even try. So much potential, and Bryan is obviously someone whom much of the cast and probably crew love. Maybe not the higher-ups so much, because I think he's been known to not be subtle in what he thinks :-), but heck.

I think we really don't know who is in power and who's making the decisions. I will have to be honest: the J&M thing doesn't bother me. Often, I think Drake does better with other actors, but that's just me. (Yes, I know. Heresy!!!) The Jack thing bothered the hell out of me, though.
But, I do think this storyline could include Doc in on his plan. A little, I think, has to do with people who really don't understand the personalities. Probably a lot has to do with too many cooks spoiling the broth, with too many head honchos in too many various places in power wanting their ways. Soaps don't have the pull for TV they once did. And, based on what I read on boards with other shows, even prime-time, character changes and writing them weirdly and out of personality isn't unique to this show. And, of course, the filming so far ahead of time where there isn't time to make quit changes on something that doesn't work doesn't help. In all honesty, I think the powers that be might consider Days fans a lot like the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland. I haven't been on boards very long, but it seems to me every year or two, there is always an "Off with his head!" or "Off with her head" campaign. After a while, I think they'd just shrug those off.
You see I wouldn't be worried about the writing for John and Marlena if some of the same patterns that occurred in late 2008/2009 where showing up again.....they are being marginalized, written OOC. To top it all off, this all started to happen a few months after TomSell were back at DOOL in the writing capacity this time. It has long been rumored (and now I believe it was absolutely truth btw) that Tomlin was in fact writing for a good part of the time that Dena was suppose to be pushing out her outlines. It's evident now that maybe the problem was that Tomlin just had his finger in the co-ep pot and in the writing room too. To top it all off he's treating Lucas the same exact fucking way he did in 2009 and it's not like this time around he can't include him in a story, shit HE'S GOING TO BE A GRANDPA, but remember what occurred the last time in the Dan/Chloe/Lucas triangle? Tomlin/Dena (whomever was writing) took him out of his own fucking triangle and transplanted him with Kate...soon after Lucas was written off.....let's face it...it's too much of a coincidence that the ONLY THREE FUCKING VETS That remained after the purge when TomSell got hired are being treated the SAME EXACT WAY THEY WERE BEFORE. Let's face it....he doesn't like writing for them, and unless he goes, NOTHING WILL CHANGE.

The minute I heard that TomSell had replaced MarDar I knew that Lucas' days were numbered, I hoped for the best, but knew it was impossible. That man is toxic to this show. Think about it this way...he's supposedly been 'forced' to write for Ejami, explains the air time and kind of story he has given them....we all know if this was Safe he was forced to write for (like what happened in late 2009) then he'd be giving them tons of airtime and showcasing their love story. He has ways of getting around what he doesn't like.....and low and behold if he was forced not to go with Safe, then Rafe could not be without a believable love interest for too long....enter Chrishell's character..
You could be right. Then again, I don't have a horse in this race. :shrug:

Spoilers for the week of April 29th
I'd love to see Stefano, Vargas, and Nick in cahoots with each other. Could make for some REALLY good soap!

Apparently, K-Mansion is the clown car of Salem. :/ Christ, why hasn't victor gone insane from having all those people in his home?
Dude should just turn it into a B&B. ( I mean Bed and Breakfast, not Bold and Beautiful....)
You all have me excited for SoapNet again. How many days in a row now? 4? I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop..........

Is that Lee DuMonde with Stefano?
Why, yes, it is! I vaguely remember when Lee was on the show. Probably my BIGGEST memory is the fit she threw when Doug & Julie got remarried. Thankfully it's on youtube. lol Poor Brenda Benet had such a sad story in real life.
She did. Remember how she was with Bill Bixby and life was supposed to be so sweet, and then she committed suicide? Poor thing. Lots of demons.

That's what I had missed.........the funny stuff.
One question: I keep seeing "Tomlin hates so-and-so. Or, Corday doesn't like so-and-so", yada, yada. Is there any PROOF of this? Do you really think these writers/producers/muckety-mucks actually have a vendetta against these actors? Do they come out and say it? Or is it speculation because they might not like the characters?
i can't remember where it is, but the Peter/Kristian/Tomlin stuff is discussed somewhere, and not just as fan speculation.
Discussed and speculation doesn't equal fact. It's possible he doesn't like them. I guess it's personal preference, but "hate" is such a strong word. But whatever.

And I'm not just referring to Peter, Kristian, et al.

Yes, Ericole spark..................Oh, baby...................Oh, baby.....................Dang, AZ plays emotional so well. Why isn't this woman on a nighttime drama?

I'm not so set on John and Marlena that I wouldn't mind a little sparking. After all, I was a Jate fan once. (Hiding, but got my ammunition ready!). I'm like Matt. I want Don Craig back.

Darn it! I like Jen today. She was actually holding her own.
