Hmmmmmm. Not sure about your supporting Actress list, just because the Kat twins do not have enought storyline recently to stand out.

Adrienne Frantz as Sarah Roberts is kinda brilliant.

I'd like to see Adrienne Franz as a reimagined Taylor Walker on DAYS. Nicole could use a fiesty sister and rival while Sami could use an unlikely friend and partner in crime.

Awe, I don't think Marnie Schulenberg is that bad. Sure, she's not as good as Jessica Dunphy, but I like her. Then again, I haven't watched ATWT since March, so maybe I've missed a lot, LoL.

My problem with Alison Stewart/McDermott isn't so much Marnie playing her as it is the complete character overhaul that happened from a writing standpoint. It would be different if Alison had been off the canvas for ten years (which is why I didn't mind the change in Dusty - we hadn't seen him since he was about twenty, and a lot can happen to someone in those years).

But there were only a few years between Jessie Dunphy and Marnie, and I can't buy that the Alison we last saw moving to LA to live happily ever after with Aaron would be anything like the porn actress methhead that came back.

I agree, I HATE how she was written back in, but from a purely acting standpoint, I don't think MS is that bad, at all.

Agreed. Given what they've asked her to do, I feel like she's totally delivered.

Aww, I don't mind Agim (but I can see why others don't like him). He's no great actor, but he's no worse than Hensley was at his age. In fact, I dare say he might be better than Hensley was in his 20's. Although since his return, they haven't given him SQUAT to play.

LoL, that's probably for the best.

Good stuff, Nelson.

I do think you missed someone else in your supporting actress mentions...Peggy McKay. She did fantastic work when Shawn Sr died (which she got raves for) and even recently with her involvement in the Max/Trent stuff and Victor's stroke. Hell, she was good during Bo's illness too. I think she's deserving of recognition. I would also maybe consider Mary Beth Evans or even Tamara Braun and Arianne Zuker. MBE was great during the plane crash and during the Ava plot and the poorly executed baby Joe story. Braun was solid in pretty much everything she did on Days and Arianne Zuker has been shining since returning to Days.

I'd have to agree with all of your choices! I was very impressed with TB as Ava in what could have been a one note role! She brought nuance and shading and wasn't just a cackling witch or mob princess! I loved that they kept her beyond the kidnap story and put her with other characters before she left!

I have to disagree about whole Jana/Kevin Y&R wedding. I hated it. It almost fell asleep. But that's just because I hate Kevin and Jana. I think they are useless and boring. Kevin was amazing when he was a crazy loony villain. But now that he's this perfect Mama's boy, I hate him. Jana (also one time lunatic) is boring. She puts me to sleep.

Both actors are good though, I just hate the characters. Come to think of it, everyone who attended the wedding could leave the show and I wouldn't shed a tear (well, Lauren and Daniel can stay.. But Kevin, Jana, Michael, Gloria, Jeffrey, Amber and Colleen need to go like.. YESTERDAY!)

I do like what MAB and Hogan did with Chloe. I love what they're doing with Adam vs Nick and Victoria. I am liking the business stuff and I am grateful that they removed Sabrina and David from the show.
