You know? I keep reading where people here and elsewhere on other boards say, "I'll watch today, but not tomorrow." Or, "I won't watch any episode with so-and-so on, just the other couples I like." Well, if people keep just watching here and there, the show is bound for cancellation. Don't you people have ANY idea that you have to support the ENTIRE show to keep the ENTIRE show on the air?!?!?!?!? Days is the ENTIRE cast, not just your favorite couple or actor or story lines! GET REAL! If this show gets cancelled, there should not be any moaning and lamenting from any of the posters who watch, "only such and such episodes!!!"
Only Nielsen viewers have to support the whole show to keep it on the air. While I'm not the type to only watch certain people's scenes, it certainly won't be those people's fault if the show fails. That lies solely on the TPTB. If they wrote a full show that was worth watching, this wouldn't be a problem. Though, I do agree that it's harder (for me at least...and I'm pretty irrelevant) to take complaints seriously from those who are only watching certain scenes. I mean, if you FF through one character, you really have no reason to complain about that character, lol. That's why I watch the whole show. If I'm going to complain, and we all know I am, I'm going to know what I'm talking about. That's my preference, though. Everyone doesn't have to abide by it.

Sigh. The Rafe stuff. I'm not opposed to the idea in general, but it doesn't work for Rafe. It doesn't work for Rafe because he's the only person in that house we've seen cook and pick up the kids. So now suddenly that he has all the time in the world to do it, he can't manage it? They really have no clue how poorly they've written Sami.
That scene also didn't work because the "mess" Rafe made wasn't that big, despite the fact that Gabi noticed all the nothing Rafe was covered in. I also couldn't even tell what went wrong in the microwave. You'd think it be easy to make him look incompetent, but it turns out it's kind of a feat.
They were just trying to redo the 80's movie "Mr. Mom"... which has been redone already in countless sitcoms and movies. ie, the entire 9 season run of Full House. It's a cheap gag but at the expense of any greater storyline in that episode.
I get what they're doing. It's just silly since it was only a couple of weeks ago that he did all these things onscreen with no problem. There are plenty of cheap gags out there that could totally work.
