Yawn.

Twenty years ago, DOOL introduced a latino family. April Ramirez romanced Dr Mike Horton, snarked at Eve Donovan, and guzzled alcohol. Emilio Ramirez bounced between Jennifer Horton and Melissa Anderson (Horton), wore slinky tanktops, and dove to his death from a barnloft (?). Julio Ramirez wooed Carrie Brady as part of the Teen Set 1989. Mama Rosa Ramirez had her life support unplugged and all three were gone from Salem within three years.

Let history repeat itself.
I don't think I can take 1 year of this boring family, let alone 3 years. Luckily for Days they will have Carly/Vivian on the screen so I'll watch and ff the Hernandez family who have nothing to do with Salem.
:headbang: :soapbox:
Every successful or atleast longterm writer of DAYS introduced atleast one new family, itīs a way how to keep the show fresh and the dna pool viable. New family usually means new stories, new mysteries and a lot of skeletons in the closet which the writers can slowly reveal. Brady family was once new in the town too. The same Johnsons, Deverauxs, Ramirezes, Scofields, Alamains, Reeds, Blakes, Walkers, Lockharts. This is the standart way the show operates so saying the Hernandezes are some eviction from the rules and donīt have any place on the show is not true.

Yep. I just love how so many forget that the Brady's, Johnson's, Reeds, etc all were new families too once upon a time. Days survived too long on the same characters and families. Sure, you can't get rid of all the core families but new blood is needed once and awhile or all you will keep getting is incest LOL. The show could also use more diversity so I'm all for this. The teen story could use a bitch and Kinsey sucked so hopefully this means the end of her. This is so much better because at least the character will have ties to the canvas. I would've loved Joy Wesley to come on but I can't see Nancy and Craig letting her go to Salem to live with Chloe on her own and the show is no way bringing Nancy and Craig back so there goes that.

I also doubt a Passions actress will play the character. Once again, the Passions shit is blown out of proportion. GH is constantly hiring old Days stars. ATWT is hiring GH and PC stars all over the place but Days gets torn to shreds for hiring three Passions actors in one year with one hiring that took place because an actress that wasn't bringing all she could to the role was fired and one of the best young former soap actresses was brought on to replace her. Yeah...ok. :laugh:

C'mon...you have to admit it's kind of funny to bring Gering on as a cop dating a moronic bland blonde heroine, bringing on Martsolf as a not-so-bright child of privilege, then bringing on Hartley as Gering's sister, Martsolf's love interest. All in a short timespan.

I think it's brilliant, it gives me confidence in TPTB (um...to an extent) and I don't think Days should be ripped for doing it. But...it's hilarious.

Also, I hope they don't cast other people as relatives because it would be too weird for me. It would undermine what I think is genius- tricking us ex-Passions viewers into keeping the channel on NBC at least until we figure out what's going on.

I wonder who Rafe's mom and dad is? I want to know more about his past.
I actually must be one of the few who doesn't mind Rafe. I don't love him, but I don't hate him either. The show needs a white knight, so to speak, and he fits the bill. I do think he and his family have the added bonus of adding a little diversity to the canvas. I don't have a problem with them bringing on another sibling for Rafe, lawd knows we need some teens who can actually act and be animated. Mia & Will don't seem like they could act awake if you slipped them 10 No-Doz pills followed with a Red Bull chaser. My only real quibble with this is that the writers just really need to clear up Rafe's background. He started off saying he grew up in an orphanage being raised by nuns with no siblings, now his siblings are coming out of the woodwork. It is just confusing. How did he go from being Oliver Twist to being a big bro with a multitude of siblings?

I don't remember that Rafe said he was raised at the orphanage. I remember him telling Sami that he spent a lot of time at the convent when he was a teen b/c he was always in trouble and Sr. Agnes helped whip him into shape and turn his life around. He didn't tell Sami that he didn't have any siblings, he just never mentioned them. Then, he finally told her about Ari when she returned to town. When Sami asked him in August if he had anyother brothers and sisters, he never answered her. He did say his mother lived fairly close to the safe house.
I would like the writers to clear up his background, too, but somehow, I don't think they are going to tell the whole story quite yet. At least the part about Emily. With a little sis coming into the mix, tho, he is going to have to be more forthcoming than he is now. Perhaps he is connected to the Alamains. Don't know. I had read that they may hold out on the Emily story in case they decide to bring her back via the WPP program.
I do remember that when Victor had Arianna investigated, he told her that he knew she grew up rather poor, without much, and had to work hard for everything she had. So, I guess we are being led to believe that they came from a family without much.

I own you bitch.

I'm all for new families to the canvas; remember the Hollingsworths, the Deckers and the Robbins? Those were three other families tptb brought on, made a big deal of and then threw under the bus. I'm only hoping they do the same with the Hernandez clan. I found those other families far more intriguing and woven into the show more naturally. I also don't see how the Hernandezes represent a return to family values.....just me?

I also wish that if they were trying to diversify that they would actually do it. One in-name latino family and Abe/Lexie do not a melting pot make.

Im thrilled , Rafe needs to have interactions with more people then just Sami. A little sister is perfect, and I love that Ari is working with Roman.. Hopefully Soon Rafe will rejoin the FBi or the Salem PD or become a P.I.
I love that he will be working with Carly because that mrans he will also be working with Bo and Vivian no doubt .. this places him firmly at the center of story ... And I love it.

Im thrilled with the fact that the Hernandez family is staying in Salem....
And looking forward to his reunion with the woman he loves and who loves him in return.

ITA with this post! I really enjoy GG and LH and I never laid eyes on either of them before they came to Days. I am really pleased that it is the Hernandez family who are getting another sibling I don't know if she will help me to enjoy the teen set :drunk: but I'm sure I will enjoy seeing her interact with Rafe and Arianna and no doubt she will help to reveal even more of their past.

I am glad Carly is rescuing Rafe too. He'll owe her a favour which may help her out in the future. And of course really looking forward to a Safe reunion! :wub:

I am with you on all of this.
Days needs a new family to intertwine with the present Salemites and the new ones coming in. And I am glad that the Hernandez family will be staying to do just that.
I can't wait until Rafe and the woman that loves him for who he truly is are reunited.
I think the writers are doing a great job of intertwining all these characters with each other. I think the best is yet to come for DAYS with Vivian, Carly, Bo, Rafe, and Sami.

I agree. I am curious as to what Gabby will be like, if she might be a teenager like Rafe or Sami were. Either way I am looking forward to her interactions with the Will, Mia, Chad, Safe and Arianna.

I don't think the Hernandez family by itself will bring a return to family values. I am hoping that the show will make a return to some good family values like they used to have. Hopefully, adding some new blood to the show might help with that. IMO, it is really needed. All we have had for a few years now are villains and murders, kidnappings, etc. While I think those are interesting and needed on a soap, I don't think they need to be the only thing a soap has.

Seeing Sami as changed as she is and with a man like Rafe who loves her and is devoted to all of her kids, I think could help change the direction of the show somewhat.

From SOD:

Comings & Goings: Gabriela Rodriguez (Gabby Hernandez). Rafe and Arianna's sister will be home for Thanksgiving. "She reminds me of Kristian Alfonso when she first started," praises Executive Producer Ken Corday.

I think this is a picture of her.

Meanwhile, Kristian Alfonso's acting left alot to be desired when she first started on Days, LoL. Was that comparison Corday's way of saying that this new girl sucks but she's pretty?

lol... Corday does that a lot - he compares his younger actresses to established ones. My guess is that it's supposed to distract us from the fact that there are so many newbies on the show. If we think she's a Kristian Alfonso in the making, we'll take her more seriously.

Pssh. This show won't be around long enough to make another Kristian Alfonso, LoL. Maybe the next Nadia Bjorlin (Hah!), but Kristian Alfonso? Nah.
