I watched it without sound. Is it as underwhelming with sound as it was without?

I like Marlena's scarves. All 15 of them.
I enjoyed Marlena confronting Kristen, and EJ pointing that he's the one who loves Sami for who she is. However, the rage at seeing the worst case scenario play out for Nicole is what stands out, especially when done by two harpies with hideous hairstyles and an escapee from a 70s porn flick. :puke:
Ej loves Sami for who she is? :huh: He didn't seem to love her too much when she kept his child a secret from him, shot him in the head, had secret hand signals with Johnny and tried to destroy Arianna's taped confession. I don't remember him cheering her on then. I do remember Rafe accepting all those stunts while continuing to love and support her. Rafe's been shown to not like Sami lying to him as it turns out any more than she likes him lying to her, but as far as loving a person for who they really are....I don't think I've seen Ej embracing all sides of Sami let alone being forgiving of her missteps against him. Not buying that statement at all.
Wow, you've got a good memory. Glad that Rafe was the one to walk away from Sami and once again EJ was more than happy to sniff his left overs.

EJ obviously loves lying, hyprocritical, fake, cake eating, child neglecting, disposable, loser bitches that can't run a business much less run a family. It's sad when ya miss EJ lustfully making out with a scarf.

I really hope in the coming months they give poor nicole a break. Im sure the whole town is going to stone her for this. Even if eric and her do get together im sure the whole town will feel the need to trash her to him every chance they get. Jennifer looks horrible in the promo so does daniel. I just will never understand why they would let nicole carry a baby full term just to kill him off it is by far the worst thing ive ever seen on days in all my years of viewing and that is saying a lot

These writers have done a few things right: I now no longer care who the fuck EJ loves or why he loves them, I don't care who Sami wants or loves because I'm not bipolar enough to get it and Rafe apparently has no purpose until they inevitable put him with Hope. Speaking of Hope, I have none when it comes to the Sami/Rafe/EJ revolving door of suckass because one doesn't need YouTube to see that story......it's been the A story on Days for years now. It's as old and tired as Corday himself.

Wow. I actually felt kinda of sorry for Nicole. Everybody is gaining up on her and most people in that room have no room to judge her. She's going to be at her lowest when Eric comes back. The slap Kristen laid on Brady was hot! Safe/Ejami lame that's the scene in today's DA. Gabwhore and Nick lame. I can't wait to see what Chad has in store for her. Lucas and Will stuff looks decent. Overall Promo was pretty LAME.

Of course he does because those are the traits that EJ possesses (sans cake eating). EJ is nothing if not a narcissist so of course he loves the woman that most closely mirrors him.

But does that woman love him? She sure had no problem dumping him for Rafe. At this point I think Ej deserves better. They really should try Ej/Abby. Something different and unexplored instead of this lame Ejamiafe triangle that never ends.

Actually I'd say you've made the case that EJ does love Sami. She shot him in the skull and left him to bleed out to go screw her boyfriend, his response was to put a doppelganger in her bed. She hands him a dead baby, he fakes her child's death but then caves and brings their daughter back healthy and whole. Payback is hardly proportional to crime committed - Mr. DiMera must really be smitten. ;)

On the other hand, Rafe has been far more obsessed with EJ than he's ever been with Sami. I like the sinners on soaps, and lovers who sometimes hate are down my alley, but those who can't see their own sins and don't get called on it are FF material. Rafe, Jennifer and Daniel top that list for me. Wish they'd form a menage a trois, so I could enjoy the rest of the show and they can wallow in their delusions of superiority. :P

Maybe the Ejabby scene will be in the next promo. The Ejami/Safe stuff has been done to death and this show needs some fresh material.

I am surprised that after Corday's big annoucement about going lock, stock and barrel with ejami they weren't featured in a more intimate way. EJ just comes off as the interloper he always is to Safe.
I expect that in the second promo. This one is only for the first 2 weeks of the month.
And the scenes they featured in this promo are what air tomorrow - when it's still October. :laugh:

Yeah ... I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. The only thing that caught my eye in a positive way was Marlena and Kristen. Seriously, WTF is up with everyone screaming at Nicole?! 10 seconds of Shawn Christian's "acting" was hilarious and even KM's version of Abigail screaming at Nicole looked pretty bad. Why does Missy Reeves always look old and washed out? I commend those of you who can actually sit and watch this shit because it's awful and it doesn't look like it's going to get better anytime soon.

Jennifer lost her big old comfy Horton House bed for a night while having five minutes of people questioning her. Nicole lost a BABY just 2 weeks away from giving birth. So yea, it's total payoff to see Nicole thrown under the bus for what was certainly a hard time for Jennifer. I'm
Sooo thrilled Jennifer's name is cleared after months of her berating a pregnant woman. Its touching how nobody in town would consider Nicole's feelings of losing another baby, what that has done to her body, her mind, her spirit. The confusion it caused her...etc. Nicole did not take advantage of the fall....she was in a heated confrontation with a woman who seemingly enjoyed shooting verbal daggers towards a woman in a seriously high risk pregnancy. For the audience to be expected to root for Jennifer is sicker than the death of the baby itself. Might I add Daniel fucked Nicole when she was pregnant. Dr. Poison Penis Baby Stabber is sick and at this point, I feel him and Jenn are perfect for each other. And Melissa Reeves calls this the best job ever. Geez. Nicole has gone thru sexual abuse as a child, lost two babies....she's going to be out of her mind with devestation. Jennifer let that woman go to a stair case while verbally berating her and Nicole fell. Jennifer might not have pushed Nicole with her hands...but she pushed her verbally and there's not one fiber in my body that will EVER root for Jennifer ever again. Fuck this shit.
:iagree:

Jennifer looks ancient in this promo, like she has just came home from an audition for Miss Havisham. :huh1:

Nicole mirrors EJ far more than Sami ever will. We have never seen EJ be completely honest with Sami about the things he has done like he has with Nicole. And like Nicole he has spent years chasing after someone who doesn't love him. These last few months they've have shown Nicole and EJ practically doing the same thing on screen. I do believe this show writes Nicole as the female EJ and EJ as the male Nicole. And I have no doubt that neither one of them will ever have happiness and we all know Sami will.

I expect that in the second promo. This one is only for the first 2 weeks of the month.
the promo with sami stuff aside from lucas talking with her about will it from tuesday show

show how littlie they have to promte
This raises yet two other problems with the show. First, let's assume the assumptions are correct -- that this promo only pertains to the first two weeks of the sweeps period. That still means the person creating the promo had 10 shows to work with from which to pull clips. Yet, she wasn't able to come up with a full 90-second promo. And I'll bet it's like those movie trailers where all the so-called "best" moments are in the trailer and the rest is just tired filler. That's all these promo clips represent, really. Just little "moments" without any real storyline tied to them. They'll all be wrapped up in a couple of episodes only to be followed by some more moments that fizzle out and go nowhere.

Secondly, I really don't understand why anyone would save their best stuff for the second half (the end) of the sweeps period. Wouldn't it make more sense to start early so that you get off to a bang as soon as sweeps start and you have people riveted to their screens for the entire month? You know, like maybe a Daysaster that lasts more than two days and has actual follow-through and consequences for all? That bang at the beginning is supposed to build suspense and excitement through the end of the month, which is supposed to set up stories that will play out through the next sweeps period

For example, GH started off sweeps with Jason's departure. They promoted it heavily BEFORE sweeps started so that viewers were primed and ready for it to happen. Days used to at least be better at the hype, if not the substance, of what they produced. But now it's like they can't even be bothered. :shame:
