I rather enjoyed Drake today. I find I still enjoy him when he's not in scenes with Marlena looking annoyed at her existence.

This is a good conversation with Adrienne/Sonny. I wish Freddie would wake up to participate in it, but this is a good example, IMO, of a well done scene despite the fact that all participants aren't particularly good.

This is what I think is so fascinating about this show. Two people can watch it and draw completely opposite opinions. I continue to think Drake is by far the worst actor on the show and today didn't do anything to change my mind. As for Freddie, I still think he's one of the better actors on the show and actually gives a damn about his character and scenes. His brief scenes today with Judi only strengthened my opinion as I thought those mother and son scenes were better than the Sami and Will scenes. Different strokes I suppose.
I thought Freddie was really good today also. Instead of some people that overact he plays it more chill in scenes that don't have much going on. In the first scene with Sonny and Adrienne I thought he did a great job. Him and Judi have such a realistic mother/son vibe. Freddie needs more meaty scenes on a consistent basis. And he's not getting it. His role has purely been for Sonny to be Will's boyfriend for the most part. But looking at the scenes when Sonny kicked Will out of his apartment and when Will pushed him away after the kiss, Freddie was fantastic. I think a lot has to do with the material because if we saw him on a more regular basis with consistently meaty material it may come across different in most of his scenes where not much is going on. He also showcased more spunk in the lighter scenes like when Sonny and Will were wearing costumes for halloween and when they joked about getting married. The problem also is the writing has been so dreary for him. When he first came on the show the writing was more fun loving for Sonny. I wish they would find a way to bring that back but based on the current story it's hard.
