I don't know if he teased too much on DOOL, I only really remember his second stint which was rather short, but he definitely did on Passions WAYYYY too much.

The entire clip just screams James Reilly. Sigh. He was a trainwreck but I kinda miss his overdramatic, cliched, everything's a cliff-hanger soap. That's soap opera to me.
ICAM! I think that's why I'm not nearly as dedicated to soaps anymore. I love them in theory, but my enjoyment level never comes close to what it did when stuff like this was going on, especially on Days.
I kinda like it too, BUT JER overused some some of those. Most of his cliffhangers turned out to be nothing... I mean, I do think that it's good to string the audience into thinking that character A will learn character B's secret, so you make several cliffhangers where A almost finds out. But after those few times, you just really have to reveal the secret to A. JER teased WAY too much without revealing the secret, IMO.
But I could deal with that again if it meant a storyline that I rushed home to watch. Is that too much to ask for?
edited to add: this is such an awesome clip. I do miss JER's DOOL :(
