Promo for week of June 29th; What is the big secret that can come between Rafe and Sami?

I think the promo is brilliant.

As boring as Rafe may be, it was genius to bring Luis (Passions) to Salem (give him a sister who may be paired with Ethan- even better!). The show had a small but stable audience of people who will watch ANYTHING, and ultimately that's the kind of people you want to attract.

Slap together a quick promo of Luis and some blond woman- you can trick people into thinking it's still Passions, and you get those (possibly high) people who will watch whatever you put on-screen. No offense to Passions fans- I was one of you for a good long time- but really...we watched pretty much anything they did.

I think they're making the most of their crappy $2 promo. Where do these things air, anyway? Just YouTube and, y'know, here...when someone posts it directly?

Wow..can someone please nominate that for worst promo in history?

Someone in that department needs to be fired.

And I really love Sami and AS I think it's someone else's turn on the promo. I'm getting tired of just her storyline. I do have another favorite characters besides her.

Seriously, I would like to nominate this one for worst promo ever. :thumbsup:

- Nothing happens in the promo,
- the announcer even sounds bored,
- yet the subtitle of the promo tells you what's going to happen in the story anyway.
I'll second that nomination.

Shouldn't these be promo's that make people wanna actually, I dunno, WATCH it?

I love the consensus among practically everyone here! This promo has definitely hit an all-time low.

What's sad is that NBC used to have the best promos around. Then again, the material that was featured in them used to be a lot better, too.

I agree the Promo is way too short. Promo's are suppossed to draw us in and wett our appetite for the show.

Ofcourse I dont mind the content aside from not enough of it.. Since many here dont like Safe they wont like the Promo, but for those of us who Love Safe we enjoy the prospect of more Sami and Rafe.
Im sure the consenses would be different if EJ and Sami were in that promo.. no matter how short.

But I do understand because I hated when everyday was about EJ, and he was shoved down my throat every day for over a year.. I enjoy him much more in tempered doses, and away from Sami.

So its all in the content.

But still, all the promos are too short.

You mean the non-couple that's swallowed this show whole over the past couple years? No thanks.

The writers know SAFE is hot right now that's why they are focus so much on them and the fanbase is soaring! That's why the promo from week 2 week lately usually focuses on Sami/Rafe. People deny it because they hold a love for a different couple but reality is SAFE is the IT right now and think it's just building more n more. I personally love the couple. I was so tired of the Ej/Lucas/Sami triangle. It needed something fresh and back to romance the way DAYS use to be when it rocked! I think it's heading back to the good ole days, thank goodness someone woke up! I'm ready for the days of SUPERCOUPLES again. Like when JACK/JEN use to be on every other promo. I have a feeling SAFE is gonna take us there. :applause:

Umm...no. I don't care for ANY pairing involving Sami Brady, whether it's Rafe, E.J., Lucas, or anyone else from her harem of men.

And Rafe...well, Rafe just isn't worth the gum off of my shoe.

And I'm sorry, but to compare Rafe and Sami to Jack and Jennifer is just laughable.

The days of supercouples are dead and gone and ain't never coming back no matter who Sami is paired with.

And I'd hardly consider a couple that came together deciding to adopt a child together after ONE date that had all its sex scenes accompanied by a sick infant as taking the show "back to romance the way DAYS use to be when it rocked."

The love in the afternoon I remember fondly had a bit more build up, mystery and excitement involved.
