My love affair with Maggie is over. I don't even care much for Vivian but what a condescending bitch Maggie is, I hope she pees in Tuscany's boulliabaise. Carly, Mel, Chloe et al looked so stupid listening to Maggie's plan of "boring their eye's into her back". I am disappointed that Victor and Caroline never came to be but I was ok with Vic and Viv because at least he seemed to somewhat enjoy Viv's company. Maggie and Victor caring about one another is too suden and Victor has become such a dick, more than usual.

Overall, I didn't care for the wedding and the one liners. It was a throwback to a time of Days that wasn't all that great to me.

Loved the flashbacks!! Nicole's wedding dress was pretty. It was touching that Vic was touched that his family stayed for the wedding.

Melanie is too controlling on her parents lives. Dan and Carly have previously established relationships but she wants to give her two cents--annoying.

It was nice to see Shane.

Hope is just as incompetent as a mother. Ciarra is willing to show her where the treasure box is but thinks a sleep over is more important. Nothing like free babysitting I guess.

Hated hated hated every second of that Bo-Melanie scene. It felt like a scene of Bo sucking up to her and this show has entirely too many scenes of people sucking up to Melanie. Like I don't think it was in the most recent show but maybe an episode or two earlier you had that moment of Philip stopping Nicole in her newscast and he was talking about firing Nicole just to give Melanie her job if Princess Melanie suddenly decided that's what she wanted after all? WTF?!
My feelings exactly. When Bo thanked Melanie for "everything she'd done for his family", my first thought was "Does that include sleeping with your niece's fiancee and being a bitch to your daughter?"
Don't forget making porn with his brother and marrying and then emotionally cheating on said brother with his wife's cousin.

That's after getting another one of his wife's cousins shot trying to protect her and then later crazy on pills after he did her a favor in killing Melanie's shitty "dad." But not without also attempting to frame Bo's niece for the murder when she thought she did it.

Oh and who can forget Melanie igniting a huge war between the DiMeras and Kiriakis families that got Bo's niece kidnapped and his brother shot?

What was the line meant to include? I don't remember the scene clearly anymore, but what has Melanie ever done for his family that was positive?

It's her mere presence. She allows them to be in it.

heyjude14 - Just wrote script for the preview...it's going to be great...you'll need a lot of kleenex for the Alice memorial...June 5th...

heyjude14 - ...I was crying in my office watching...it's very touching. Don't want to give anymore away...let you know when the preview goes up
I figured they would do a preview. I can't wait to see it but I will probably be away when it gets posted.

I better stock up on tissues for the month of June. I don't cry easily but this will surely make me cry.

and while she didn't exactly frame bo's mother the way she did his niece...she knew caroline was innocent and was willing to let her take the fall so long as it kept her from being questioned about her whereabouts the night trent died.

LMFAO, IMiss!
You just called that shit. I really enjoyed Friday's show, but the only part that just pissed me off was Melanie...then I read your stuff and I realize how truly fucking annoying that character is.
Forget GG. I truly think that MB is blowing GT! How is it that every character can be traced back to Melanie? How does that happen? Just cuz she is cutesy? Baby voiced?
WTF!

The thing is... even after all the shit mentioned happened... I actually LIKED MELANIE up to about last Nov. sweeps despite all the shit she did.

I just don't get why they insist on writing her this fickle-ass little miss priss after she came on the scene as a scheming bitch who knew what she wanted and went after it. That Melanie was so much more entertaining to me. Phillip's parole from his sham marriage can't come soon enough.

Exactly!

Don't get me wrong, I like Melanie as a good girl. She's much more tolerable as a good girl. As a bad girl, she's laughable. If I wanted to watch a bitchy high school Queen Bee, I'd watch Gossip Girl. But, even good girls need to have some flaws. Right now, it's as if the whole town of Salem has forgotten about Melanie's past (which IMissAremid and I just gave a nice review of) and consider her to be a saint. And she's doing the same thing that made Stephanie unlikable until a few months ago: jumping on a moral high horse.

ITA! I used to really like Melanie. She was an interesting character and I loved her dynamic with Maggie. Melanie was selfish, manipulative, and scheming, but Maggie was the only one who saw the potential in her. Mel was much more entertaining back then. Now, she is Miss Priss and a total snooze. I wish they would return to the naughty Mel who occassionally showed signs of goodness. I also think MB was much better when she was playing Mel this way. Having Mel be a good girl seemed to bring out the baby voice - ick!

I agree. Old Melanie was much better and more exciting. I had heard awhile back that Molly Burnett was a favorite of Corday's. Maybe that's who she's blowing, not GT.

I agree that I used to enjoy Melanie when she first came on opposite Max, but since then, she is up in everyone's business and everyone seems to think she is the most amazing person in the world. I mean, evil ass Vivian grew a conscience could barely even kill her because she was just so darn likable. Ugh!

I wish I found Melanie boring/a total snooze. That way, I could sleep through her scenes. But really, I find Melanie to be cringe-worthy, teeth grinding, nails on the chalk board annoying so much so that even when I fast forward her, I can't watch the screen because the sight of her pisses me off.
Then again, there are a few other characters that do that to me too...and I stop watching.

It's amazing how fast things changed on this show from going to pretty awesome to downright painful to watch. I just wonder what happened?

I was watching the day ahead for Monday and I don't like the way they were using Justin.
Spoiler: click to toggle

I want them to do something else with Justin. Having him around Hope and Ciara is getting kind of boring.
I'd like to see him either working things out with Adrienne or doing something else.
Higley's plot point writing is getting ridiculous. I wish they would focus more on the characters then the plots.

That's the key - make it about the characters, rather than the plots. That's why Friday's episode was so good - it was all about the characters interacting and being their true selves. Nicole was sarcastic, wise-cracking and drunk. Vic was droll, cold and biting. Vivian was desperate, manipulative and hilarious. Even Bo was true to his character - overly sincere and putting the responsibility on all himself. Bring back the true characters, I say, it works wonders for the show!!!
