Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days
Couldn't agree with you more, except for the slight exception that I did think DB had chemistry with FF. But Max/Mimi was never going to go anywhere since she was leaving.
As ridiculous as I find the notion of DB cast as a powerhouse college quarterback (even a backup), I guess I'll take him contaminating one of my favorite sports if it gets him off Days. He may be a lovely guy and perhaps if he was cast in something that made sense to me I wouldn't mind him, but I am so ready for Max to be gone. If Melanie went with him that would be the icing on the cake.
As for James Scott, though I like him, I don't see any reason to believe he could make the leap to the movies or even primetime TV. Not everybody who can put up numbers in the D-League is NBA material, and just because JS looks good in comparison to some of the craptacularness on the show doesn't mean he's talented enough or charismatic enough to make it as an actor off Days. I wouldn't be surprised if I never heard of him again after Days goes off the air, and again, I like him; I just don't think he's super-special.
