Awww. No need to apologize to us EJ fans for not digging him. I love reading your posts because you're always so gosh darn polite and diplomatic, but you also make me feel guilty reading this because I DON'T apologize when I bitch about Lucas and I know you like him and I like your posts. So stop being so nice so I can stop feeling bad! LOL.

Even though I am an EJami fan, at this point this triangle is so maddening I almost wish it was just busted up entirely and there was a way to develop ALL THREE CHARACTERS independently of one another. If Lucas is ever going to grow up, I think it's clear that's not going to happen with Sami. I'd love him back at Titan working with Phillip and the two of them battling EJ in the corporate world. EJ has enough going on with his legal troubles with Mythic and struggling with his family ties that he doesn't have to be ONLY about Sami all the time. And I'd love to see Sami alone and standing on her own too feet again with a real job, but I suppose that's pretty much impossible with them putting twins in her lap soon, not to mention the fact that Hogan doesn't have much interest in writing strong women and is obsessed with completing his transformation of this misunderstood bad girl into a weepy heroine.

And Cindy, I have noticed the Bettina Bradbury connection too. I just can't figure her out. She did write the really good DiMera/Brady family meetings episode and there are parts of her scenes that I like such as Friday's EJ/Tony stuff and the part of the episode with Sami's seduction of EJ where we got EJ opening up about how his biggest wish is that no part of Sami regretted loving him. But of course, the other part of that episode had EJ at the other end of the spectrum threatening Sami and while we got the good stuff from EJ/Tony on Friday we were stuck with the Lumi idiocy. I also know she wrote the episode the previous Friday with Sami claiming she's afraid of EJ and always will be (oh except when she needs his help! that is such B.S.), the Sami calling EJ irrelevant after the paternity reveal and also she wrote the episode where EJ admitted to raping Sami after another SW (I think Mike Cohen) had written him just a few days earlier saying he didn't rape her and he'd deny it to the day he dies. In any event, this writing staff needs to just get their shit together and all get on the same page IMO and I also think if this show actually wants to have Lumi as the rooting couple they need to have their scenes penned by someone other than Bettina.

Thanks Aremid. No need to feel guilty cause I sometimes want to say what I really feel, but don't have time or energy to put into one of those "wars" that some posters like to start (not you) but you probably know who I mean. I am beginning to have my feelings about Lucas shot to hell by Sheffer because of the way he is being written right now. And also by what I am reading about some of the comments he makes in public. I really feel that Bryan is feeling threatened by James Scott. Perhaps if James were shorter. . . LOL The main reason I come to these message boards is because of people like you, SteveFrame, Kenny, King, PhoenixRising and a whole lot more that have excellent thoughts, ideas and comments. The bottom line is that we all love Days and know it can be a whole lot better than it is now. We can only hope. One other thought, I always wanted Sami to grow up and quite whining about Marlena and Roman getting back together, but I sure don't care much for this version of her. We need consistency in our characters and stories. Please.
