Exactly. I was conversing with some Lumis on the subject of lack of airtime for Bryan and we couldn't even grasp why he wouldn't be given the b or even c storyline if his guarantee is 2 days a week which it appears to be. He could still get his own love interest outside of Sami, it's not like he shares scenes with her anyway, and appear 2 Days a week with that other person and yet still manage to have scenes on those same days with Will/Gabi or anyone else in the Wabi storyline. Only reason we can come up with is just writer bias and we are all aware that every writer has their favorites but let's face it.....it's really something that someone should talk to Tomlin about.....he showcases his love for his pets way too blatantly and that is only hurting the show.

I'm not a fan of actors sending messages to their fans for more work but Drakes tweet got me thinking. If you want to see more John in 2013, act NOW....sounds like we get some Drake thru the next few months and then BAM, not much John. Made me wonder about the John/Kristen/Marlena/Brady story coming to a close. Maybe they continue with Bristen...maybe they utilize ED in a new story. I just hope ED doesn't get the transfer back to Y&R....she's my favorite part of Days right now. Anyway, I don't think TomSell are big fans of Drake so I'm not surprised to hear he will be on the back burner after this story ends. Hell, he's barely been a part of it!
It is kind of sad that actors that play these characters with such a rich history, connection to the show and are fan faves practically have to beg their fans to show support for them because the idiots in charge at Days are focused on just a few characters year in and year out. I am hoping that Drake took to twitter because maybe Bryan's tweet worked out for him, who knows....but I'm hoping beyond hope that we see more Bryan and Drake. Seriously Days, look at fucking GH and see what happens when a soap doesn't focus on the Days of Sonny and Jason's lives....LOOK, proof is THERE....they brought back a core family that previous writers had tried to decimate and are having much success now. It's so frustrating watching this show die this slow death for years now while those at GH have had success doing something that I've wanted Days to do for years, focus on the families that matter. Focus on the Hortons more, make THEM the center instead of the Dimeras.
GH really is a model other soaps, especially Days, should look at. While I don't watch GH, I see their numbers and ya can't ignore they are doing SOMETHING right. I really wish we had gotten those writers but who knows if that would've helped or not with Corday and Sony all up in our business. Sony did right with the ED trade but one person can't save an entire show. I'm not hating Days right now but I'm annoyed with Dannifer, the same old crap with Sami and the lack of diversity....like you said, bring core families to the forefront, focus on different people. Hell, Justin and Adrienne could have a strong exciting story and you could get away with only airing them twice a week. It's not that hard.
