I think Galen is attractive but he and Sami just don't got what it takes...I guess I'll always be an Ejami fan, but in all honesty, I find no chemistry between Sami and Rafe. Go Ejami!!!!! :cheer:

We must understand that we live in a world of different tastes. When it comes to Sami, there seems to be a fanbase for her and Rafe, her and EJ and her and Lucas. If everybody had the same tastes, there would not be 3 fanbases. We must also understand people are stubborn so you're not going to convince an EJAMI fan that RAMI/SAFE is better or vice-versa. Personally, when Galen was on PASSIONS I never found him attractive and I thought he was a horrible actor. On DAYS however his acting is like a hundred times better. I think it has a lot to do with the writing being so over-the-top. This is also making him more attractive in my eyes as well. I still like EJ too. James is a pretty good actor, if only he could control that blinking which I'm now thinking could be morse code and it's saying Ken Corday is a big idiot! A lot of fans can't seem to get over him raping Sami, but it's funny how GENERAL HOSPITAL was able to pull that off with Luke and Laura, but GH didn't have the multi-Emmy winning Hogan Sheffer to pull that off! Wait, what? Yeah, that's right, those Emmy's did no good for that storyline! :) And don't get me started on Lucas. Bryan is a funny and nice guy in person but his acting is so one dimensional. His character is so angry so much of the time it's very distracting to me. The only time I actually liked LUMI was when they broke the bed, most of the rest of the time he was angry at Sami or trying to drive her crazy. So maybe for me it is the negative history Sami shares with both Lucas and EJ that makes Rafe so appealing. For once Sami has a man that is actually looking out for her, which wouldn't we all want that?

You seriously need help...let me help start to collect for a rehab!

Rachel did a great job of portraying Chelsea...I am going to miss her for sure...she made Days so much more interesting...at least for me...lol
*I* need help for expressing my opinion on a fictional character? Get real!
Kristian fanforever I just have to laugh at your hate for that poor charcater and I laugn even harder when people take characters so seriously good for you to have an opinion of your own. there is a borad I will not mention that takes the show so serious that they confuse the character with the actress because they are always repremanding their members that have disdain for chelsea because someone thinks they know this actress personally and so that somehow makes the character likeable.I respect your opinion even of I like Chelsea. and I hadly think you need a phychiatrist for your opinion.

If we all liked the same things, we'd all be driving cadillacs instead of chevys. That's the beauty of it. We all aren't going to like the same things and that's just a fact. No offense intended, but usually anyone that doesn't support Ejami has to put on their shoulder pads/helmets to try to "show" and "explain" why they like someone other than Ejami/EJ/Sami, etc. :blah: There just has to be acceptance that some actually prefer Safe or Rafe. There is no "understand" to it. That's just the way some fans feel.

I have no problem explaining why Rafe is a fan favorite.
Thanks for that.

I get that people have different tastes, and I accept that (reluctantly, of course, because like everyone else my personal opinion is the correct one). I just like to try and understand where people are coming from, because to me the whole Rafe setup (witness protection) was so contrived, shallow, and lazy that I can't get behind his character. I'm not coming from a particular rival fanbase, either- I'm kind of done with Sami and her romantic entanglements at this point, though I was once a Lucas/Sami fan. So my question about understanding was just curiosity.

Px780, I apologize if I went more in depth. I actually agree with you that the Safe story had less strength than I thought it could have, I wouldn't use the same adjectives, but I knew it was all out curiousity. I totally respect that your point of view.

EJami is an Ace card, no doubt about it. When they need it, they will use it. The question really is in conjunction with what? It will most likely be Nicole and could be at least one other male character involved. I am pulling for Rafe because the Safe house storyline was most likely written because of Alison's pregnancy. They brought in Galen on the heels of the large Lumi and Ejami fanbases and pioneered something in a sequestered setting. I just want to see a Phase 2 of Rafe for being an all around good guy both on screen and off.

Yes, indeed, what woman wouldn't want that? I think you may be responding to Go, Lujafe. I actually wrote that because I have seen Alison do a string of interviews and get these questions and everyone wants to know what's going to happen next. I adore Alison and I know that she wants what's best for everyone. I have never seen her be thrown a curveball and not make a home run out of it.
At the end of the day, Lujafe, is just a crunch name for forget about the fanbases, just give us the best story that can be written with what they have to work with at this time.
