I'll probably get even more "Ignore this User" for this, but I happen to like John - we don't know his plan yet & that makes it impossible to be sympathetic to whatever the F he's up to. Is he acting like a douche for a reason or is it male PMS? Either way, no matter how deep John delves into assholery, I won't give up on him - I'll give up on the entire debacle of a show first. Tomlin can't write romance, he's only good for gimmicks & the occasional angst...and even those suckass. Days needs new writers - stat!!
<ducking from tomatoes flying at screens & putting fingers in ears over other users telling me what a dumbass I am> :stars: :tounge:
No, I like John. The "real" John, that is. The one who would do anything for Marlena. I want this faux-version gone though.
What's cracking me up is when people say that Drake's acting is getting worse with every scene - probably because he hates the way John is being written as such a douche & isn't into the delivery of the lines, the emotion, etc. He's being written into a corner by TomSell who clearly don't give a shit about the history of the character with or without Marlena. I don't like the way John is being written right now, but that has nothing to do with Drake - just like everyone else - Ali, James, Eric, etc - he's portraying his character in the way it's being written. It's just easy to chalk his NOT being into his character because he knows it goes against history as it is to say "OH so and so is on FIRE right now!" because whomever happens to like whatever actor/actress and/or character. I don't want Drake gone, but ITA - I want REAL John back. The same way I want real EJ back - he's a DiMera & should be written as an evil SOB, not a lipstick naming, purse carrying wimp. The real Sami - a mom/business woman. And don't get me started on the whole Will taking a back-seat to his mom running the show about his baby BS - that should be WilSon -vs- Gack - with WilSon FTW. Same with Bo, Hope, Jennifer, etc.
OK, end rant. Throw more tomatoes! :stars:
P.S. The elephant in the room? IF Drake leaves and IF Tomlin is coming down on the vets...who's next? :scared:
There are very few vets left.....the other one immediately would be Dee. He's already bumped BD to recurring, the rumor is that Drake is in the same boat or might be soon. So yeah, I can see Dee...the other vets are already on recurring....except for Sweeney, who pretty much won't ever get touched I think. Maybe Suzanne and Lauren are the other two who are still around as vets....with Rafe soon bumping another much younger female, and with the way these writers repeat every damn fucking story, I can see Kate going BSC over Rafe leaving her for another woman....just like she did with Dan when Kate found out he was with Chloe. He won't touch Missy....plus Jen is doing Dan so she's safe. Suzanne hardly gets used now as is it...so keeping her on contract doesn't seem to be too much of a problem with Days.....what's her episode guarantee 2 episodes a month? She might as well be bumped to recurring. I can see them getting rid of Stefano soon also....with EJ supposedly being focused to take over whatever empire the Dimeras have....it does seem like he might be in a battle with Stefano soon and I can see these writers writing EJ to win out in the end, he takes down Stefano and then the entire town bows down to his greatness and they are all present and cheering while Eric marries Ejami at St. Luke's....this leads to the Brady's accepting the union and all is happy in the world....STUPID but I can see it happening.
They will continue to focus on the Ejamis, the Dannifers, the Ericoles and the Rafe and whatever woman comes on for him.....and that'll be it for Days.....the show has turned into a boring crap fest and frankly I watched yesterday's episode in about 15 minutes, ffwd the majority of what was on....I saw the Will/Stefano/Sami scene, laughed at how badly Will and Sami looked in that scene...the desperation was amazing....and this is a 'stronger' Sami? Yeah, no...that's just BS. Then I had to laugh at Ej making these secretive moves behind Stefano's back...whatever...if I wanted Ej to be a good guy, then it would be fine...but seriously....his strength is being a villain and going up against Stefano is not the way to go with his character...he's become Rafe....at least he's playing the part anyway....Stefano's new enemy will be Ej, just like Rafe was Stefano's enemy a few years ago....whatever...The best part of the show was the Sonny/Lucas scenes and I guess the Lumi scenes....they were quick but frankly I'm so sick of Sami that it's even hard for me to enjoy any scene she's in of late.....regardless if she's sharing screen time with my fave....John and Roman's scenes were just awful...between JT's mumbling and Drake's acting I just couldn't stomach them....seriously Drake has a job to do...and I understand that at times the writing burns out the actor when it's something the actor perceives to be destructive writing for his character....but make the best of a bad situation....I feel for the guy....and that is why I can't stand Tomlin
EJ going up against Stefano sounds more like EJ to me than Everett, but it remains to be seen. Still I love both EJ and Everett so I can take him either way.
