Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
Damn straight!!!You have to give a payoff..its been MONTHS since Nicole lost her kid...and it goes on and on and on...DOOL is about to be screwed,cause when the GA SEES with their own little peepers,that NOTHING Is going to be revealed,in this lameass baby switch..they are going to start tuning out in droves...and I also agree with you about Tomlin..his intent is to make GG one of the stars of this show,,and I am sorry,,but he is a terrible actor...he has two expressions..duh,and double duh...I have NO interest in him,whatsoever..as for Eric Martsolf,,he IS a decent actor,but is being written stupid as hell...I LIKE him...as for social issues,,DH has no damn biz,TOUCHING any health issue...Kate's lung cancer,was a disgrace,,and a fuckin plot point!!My Dad had lung cancer,and he died from it..it is NOT the way it was portrayed,,it was a freakin plot point for for Dr Dan to grope Chloe and then have an affair with her...you are right this show IS lame..and its IS turning into Passions..when will the baby reveal happen??When the show airs its last day??Like it did with the whole Ethan/Theresa/Gwen bullshit??Tomlin is going to ruin this show..wait and see :redface:
I'm sorry Phoenix, I know you are the eternal optimist, and I appreciate that more than you know, but I"ve got to agree with Dragon and EJ's girl on this one. This lack of payoff I think is going to cost DOOL in ratings, big time. We (the internet lurkers) know that there isn't a payoff, but the GA doesn't know that yet, and I think they are going to be passed pissed when they discover it.
I also agree with EJ'sgirl and Dragon that GG is not a good actor. He's not anywhere in the same ballpark with some of the ones he's put in scenes with. I also think EM is good, and I wish tptb would use him more. He's actually got some talent. TPTB need to quit trying to make GG out to be some leading man.......it might've worked on Passions(actually it didn't work, ie cancelled). But I think for the most part, your typical soap viewer isn't interested in all that mess that Passions tried to sell. GG might be good looking :shrug:
, and a great guy in real life, but he just hasn't got the acting chops.
Don't even get me started on Stefano finding out he has diabetes. Not that I don't think that's a serious illness. But really, DOOL has missed the mark on every "socially relevant" issue since Higley came aboard. The autism NOT story was awful!! Bo's mystery illness :sleep:
I think Tomlin needs to get out of the "Passions mode" and give some payoff to the viewers before they tune out in droves. I honestly think it may be too late for that once everyone gets the "nothing's really happening" May sweeps.
I have to chime in my agreement with Dragon, EJsgirl and Janal. I didn't watch Passions but had an awareness of what was going on by reading boards and the soap magazines and it was easy enough to keep up because the fact is, nothing ever DID go on. It was a show of never ending storylines and zero payoffs. That is the last thing I want to see happen with DAYS, but sadly, it sure looks like that's where we are heading. The ratings will spike during the EJole wedding, no doubt - because people will be tuning in to see the :shithitfan: But the truth is you can only pull that stunt - luring the viewers with the promise of a big reveal and then nothing happens - once or twice before the GA gets bored or frustrated and tunes out. It's just not worth the aggravation. And the real shame here is, once again, there isn't a single fan base that is happy with the way things are going. With the baby steal/switch story hanging over like a black cloud none of the potential couples (EJami, EJole, Safe, Bricole) can move away from the mess and have a solid romance. Every one of them are tethered to this mess until the truth finally comes out. Sadly, if and when it ever does you wonder who will be left that cares. :huh1:
