I was not saying they were overrated. I personally LOVE Martha and Rachel.

Stephanie is the reason your not watching? Wow...LOL. I thought it was more then that. There are just as many people that hate her as there are those that like her and they just FF or ignore her. I've always liked her and really enjoy her with Philip.
I'm kind of surprised your not watching, Rick, considering how the storytelling style mirrors JER. Even Toups at SON has been enjoying Days alot and King was enjoying it too before he wasn't able to watch so I admit I'm shocked your not finding something to like with it since your tastes usually seem similar to theirs.
As for the promo, I know I sound like a broken record but it's still way too short but I can't wait. This feud story is awesome and I love that we are finally getting some great drama with Philip and Stephanie.
I tried, really I did, but I can't watch the show anymore.
I have had an intense dislike for Hennig since Shayna Rose was fired. Rose's Stephanie actually had a personality and wasn't a hair model. I don't buy Hennig as Steve and Kayla's daughter and now that she's with Phillip it's ten times worse because I hate him too :shrug:
ETA: I do kinda like Safe
I adore Hennig LOL but different strokes...
However, there are people who never found actresses like Rachel Melvin and Martha Madison to be awful or overrated.
Hmm , what's that supposed to mean? Are you saying that Martha and Rachel were overrated ? Not from what I've seen. Sure, a lot of people thought that they were 2 great younger actresses that Days had in a while. But, I've never seen people overrate them. In fact, they had their share of criticism in the past.
I don't know it just rub me the wrong way that they would be used to justify some people not liking Hennig.
I like Hennig but she improved but she still has a long way to go. That's okay, though. One of my fave actresses on the show, started just like her and ended up one of the best of the show. That would be Mrs. Ari Zuker.
The thing is Shelley isn't strong enough as a an actress yet to make a character like Stephanie work. That character is just badly written. Like someone said in another thread, the character has no depth. It really makes it hard to root for her.
We know that she loves Phil. Why? we don't really know. We know that her ex was Max, her best friend/roomate left and she hates Melanie. Oh she works at Titan and her parents are out of town.
She's pretty blah.
What esp said is right. I was just pointing out that every actor or actress has their critics. Sames for a show, in general. What one may see as great, another may see as crap. It's all subjective.
I also feel Jane raised some interesting points too. I do think she looks the part of their daughter. I don't think she has to have the same hair color or same facial features or anything like that. I've known people that look nothing like their parents. Shelley had an excellent connection with SN and MBE and that, to me, is all that matters.
