I saw nothing exciting about EJ and Taylor. I'm not interested yet.

Geez, we only got to see them for what-- 5 seconds? I don't think we were really supposed to all be enthralled and falling all over ourselves with these two--- yet. I am willing to bet that there was a little more to that scene on the pier than we saw in the promo. I say give them a chance already.

I agree I don`t understand the harsh comments without even seeing the full ting? It is no secret that I hate rushed pairings but can she at least be on screen first before we judge how we would like them or not? I just think it is sorta unfair to already say the pairing is toast before they even shared scenes together.

I for one cannot wait til they share scenes, just get my favorite character away from Sami!

Conversely, isnt it a tad bit overzealous for people to call the same scene as enthralling...oops enchanting? We all have our biases and that's ok.

People have their own opinions, I am not trying to say anyone opinion wrong.

I for one do not believe from what I saw that their meeting was enchanting,it looked cheesy.

All I am saying it is pretty bold to say that you already hate the couple before they are even on screen.

maybe both actors suck at doing "enchanted".

ok, that's me trying to be positive for once. I'm trying really hard. It was a great attempt at being enchanted?

I think it's funny how different boards analyze things. The entire promo for me was good and I peruse several boards, some diehard boards some not and the biggest comment about the EJ and Taylor scene overall had nothing to do with forced or cheesy or whatever it was "Wow I guess EJ and Taylor do know each other". I think offliners probably thought he likely bumped into some women from his past not even knowing about Nicoles sister coming to town. If you look at the promo all the clips were pieced together. I expect the I love you from Bo and Hope jumping into his arms while I loved it is not what most are thinking it is and Nathan is not going to kiss Melanie after he hells her he loves her(heck she has diff hair and clothes between the I love you and the kiss).

Promos are intended to draw interest and IMO there was enough in that promo to get viewers somewhat interested. Now that doesn't mean a huge ratings surge, of course not. but I think as a V-Day promo it was well done. This promo could actually get me interested in Mate if I were not a confirmed Melanie hater and if I didn't know Hapka was leaving.

Really, I think the only one who called their meeting "enchanting" was Corday. For me, I am not sure that's exactly what I would call it, unless there is more to it than what we saw in the promo. I still say, give it a chance and let's see what happens with them instead of condeming them before they are even on screen together.

I admit to having my bias towards NL. I have watched her as both Emily and Rebecca for years over at GH and she just plays one note over and over again.

I fully expected someone to come in to be interloper for EJole but it kills me that its so soon?! I wanted my 6 months of semi-happiness damnit! But who knows, I'm starting to think more and more that Taylor is going to be for Brady.

Its great that you can give EJaylor a chance, but then SAFE is what AS wants, so you dont have to worry about bringing in some girl who wins his heart, because Sami will always win. (I think there's a stipulation in AS's contract now. LOL)

Personally, I have never seen NL act before as I don't watch GH and haven't in years, but I am willing to give her a chance.

Not meaning to be rude, but when has AS ever said she wants SAFE? I have never heard or read that anywhere. I think she pretty much stays neutral on who her favs are and says she likes working with all the people on the show.

My guess: AS like the attention that both the EJ/Sami and Rafe/Sami fans give her. Now that things will likely slow down in the "EJami" department - and she loses the hunky JS to play off of - she'll realize that the beloved Rafe and Sami bring a few fans but little excitement, challenge, discussion. I love the character of EJ - for better or for worse - and would be sorry to see him in an "enchanted" romance (that makes me laugh - so cliche!) with another character.

I used to visit the AS site, read her stuff but not so much any more. Little excitement about show = little exitement for AS. Funny. Oh, and I think that I like the music in the background of the promo and the promo itself more than I like how the shows actually play out.

I don't know what AS thinks about the pairings. I think she likes working with both men. I will be curious to see what happens if the JS/NL pairing takes off and becomes popular. If we see a re-visiting of Ejami, I might agree that she's wanting to be in on the "main" couple.

Absolutely. THAT'S when the politics will get interesting. EJ/Taylor get popular - then the next thing we know Taylor gets killed in a mob-related take down with a weeping EJ by her side - and Sami moves in to "comfort" him - and EJ/Sami are rekindled.

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

I'm perfectly willing to give NL a chance - I've not seen her in anything else before and she's certainly pretty enough.

Having said that, though - I always find myself reluctant to jump on the band wagon when I'm being 'told' who the root for couple is. If KC had just kept his mouth shut about it and let it play out, I might have been buzzing with excitement. But the very fact that he pronounced their 'enchanted' evening makes me go :huh1:
