It's not the actors that people are upset with... it's the parts on Days written for said actors.
exactly. i don't mind that they hired LH. i do mind that she is playing GG's sister and EM's love interest again, though. i'm sorry, but it's lazy, and it gives me little confidence that the people in charge of these things give a flying flip about anything but suckering in a few more viewers from a cancelled soap opera. had they scrapped the arianna character altogether and cast lindsay as someone else, i would be singing a different tune.
i guess another reason i am so upset is because when passions was first cancelled, i wanted lindsay brought on. i would have loved to see her interact with characters like philip or ej or even lucas. but now she's been cast as one of the most isolated women on the show. i really do not relish seeing her stuck in scenes with only her former passions castmates.
I would LOVE to see her in scenes with EJ, to be the next Dimera Queen. I think they'd be fabulous together.

They should def write her in working for the Dimeras somehow. She would play that amazingly.

I wouldn't worry too much about character isolation. Don't they love mix-and-match nowadays?

Rafe was o.k. in the safehouse as an F.B.I. agent. But he is so freaking boring as a love interest. Now they are trying to spice him up by having a mysterious past. He will still be as boring as shit. I don't care about Adrianna, Meredith, or whatever. All this crap is brought in to try and make him interesting and he is not. And by the way, who is dressing Sammi in scraps left over from American Apparel and no make up? She is still beautiful, but she deserves to look nice, too. As usual, Higley is going in all the wrong storyline directions. I'm sure she is sitting in her office trying to dream up the next big "event" Or was this chloe thing meant to be an event? I'm not sure. Earth to Higley, never has anything been more anti-climatic than Lucas' confrontation with Daniel in the cell. Please go to rehab and let someone take over the show from you. You are killing it.

I would have rather seen Lindsay in another role on the show. I didn't care for Arianna so I doubt that I will like her with Lindsay playing the character.

It's said that Felisha Terrell's last airdate is August 25th, so I would assume that she would appear pretty much right after during the same week, unless they focus on other characters and makes her appear the week of August 31st.

They're recreating an inferior show on a show that already sucks.
PERFECTLY stated.
Not really ; "Passioins," in its heyday, was slow, but LIGHT YEARS more entertaining than Days. And yes, I love both. Ratings, as we should know by now, mean nothing in daytime. "passions" also was was the best reviewed soap for a couple of years there. IT just wasn't everyone's cup of tea.

Seriously, this is total nonsense. Nobody is trying to recreate Passions. They hired popular actors from the show, but the actors are playing DAYS characters with DAYS storylines. Hire actors who were once popular as couple and trying to recreate their magic on another show is a typical producer move. Nothing new or unusual here.
It's not just about the actors. Ever since Tomlin came aboard, so many things about this show - the production values, the dialogue, the storylines (psychic visions and poison apples, anyone?) - have been very PASSIONS-esque.
Sorry, that doesn't sound like something "Passions" created--"Days" did that stuff long before "Passions" hit NBC! In fact, JER got the "Passions" deal because of those very kinds of plots on "DAYS"! lol

Well I am not surprised...what surprised me more,was they did not hire her in the beginning.I have nothing against LH..at all..she IS a good actress,but I hate what Gary Tomlin has done to this show,,Passions failed,TWICE.If he is trying to recreate it,it will fail againIPassions was a JOKE.A big one.Its clear that we are in for a Brady/Arianna/Nicole triangle when Ari comes back.I doubt tho,I will still be watching..its bad enough,Jarlena,Payla,Tanna,,and Nick got the boot..and for what?I feel really terrible for Felisha....however I DO think Arianna is a boring character,and I do not see how LH can salvage it
Sorry, nine years AIN'T failure.

I love Lindsey and Eric together. I can't wait and I will definitely have to stop fast forwarding through the Brady/Arianna scenes now.

:cheers:


i think everyone needs to stop complaining about passions and storylines that we havent even seen yet..why cant we just wait to see what happens before picking it all apart..for the most part this is a good move..it should have been done in the first place..i personally cant wait until the scenes where sami and arianna get into it should be very dramatic. there are alot of hardcore passions that are pleased about this and miss the s how and thats why this was done to bring fans from passions over..however these were the stand out stars of the show..this is always done in soaps..how many general hospital stars are over on as the world turns now nobody cares about that..when a soap goes off the air the actors move it doesnt mean theyre turning it into passions and please remember that days did the whole excorcism, and tranformation into princess gina, the virtual eden fantasy sequence, they did alot of supernatural/mythological stuff before passions did..days is just a bit more realistically explained.. I STILL SAY SCORE FOR DAYS.... :dance:
