Eric Martsolf on Brady's rocky relationships.

Eh. Ariana and Madison - two women he had zippo chemistry with - can stay gone. It's weird how EM can click with LH on Passions, but not on Days. The chemistry didn't transfer. And SB is a fabulous actress, but the cheesy Segway riding and sittin on Santa's lap grinning like kids was just unwatchable.

I wish the K/B story had been written differently from the start. But because of EM's outstanding chemistry with ED, they can be salvaged and built into something fabulous.

I wish Days had kept Lindsay Hartley. She is so natural in scenes, and she had amazing rival chemistry with Alison Sweeney and superb general chemistry with James Scott. Sarah Brown was great, but I felt that the character fell flat after Ian Buchanan joined the show, and Brady/Madison just never had that spark.
I'd love it if they brought Arianna back.
Can next weeks DR wants to know be Top 10 characters I wish they'd bring back from the dead?

I'm torn between baby Danny Rafe, Tony and Zack.
On a second level would be Lawrence Alamain, Lexie and Samantha Evans,.

But I think Jack would probably win in a landslide.

I think part of the reason is because it felt like they were implicitly telling former Ethan/Theresa fans that they will get that relationship on Days when Brady and Arianna are two completely different characters from them and lack their history. The dynamic was completely different, IMO.

I found Madison to be dull as cardboard. Which is weird because I like Sarah Brown.
I agree. Although the segways didn't help anything.
I'm still surprised Days could afford segways.
Product Placement.

You sure about that? I doubt most in Days' audience could afford one. Not that they're really expensive or anything, but at least around here, that would be considered a luxury. For really lazy people.

Too subtle for it to be product placement.

DraDeeDOESitBETTER best couple on DAYS

Def, I mean they gave more attention to Brady/Madison, and I didn't really care for them. It just didn't make sense how he LEFT Nicole out, she was such a huge part of his life for many years. But I'm glad he tweeted about it later on.

I tend to be ambivalent about Brady, but Eric Martsolf is a sweetheart. Every time I see him in a video or interview I can't help but smile. Wish some of his personality would rub off on Brady. IMO Eric has the best chemistry with Ari and Eileen (and it's a shame we never got to see what his romantic chemistry with Nadia would have been).

Agreed. Briana might have worked if Days had put any effort into developing their story, instead of trying to cash in on terethan's history.

I was watching some Arianna scenes on youtube last night and I've come to the conclusion that she should have been paired up with EJ.

They had some amazing chemistry, and how awesome would that had been? A straight-laced cop and a DiMera dating each other? Damn.

I liked Arianna at first but by the time she died, I was so ready for her to go. And I didn't think she and EJ had the slightest bit of chemistry.
She actually came across a little stalkerish to me because EJ didn't seem to give a crap about her. I liked her stuff with the first Gabi but I literally have zero memories of her with Brady.

Arianna and Madison were badly wasted. It really seemed like they only existed to give Brady as many shirtless/love scenes as possible. It was highly annoying.

If they'd kept the original Arianna and left LH out, I would have enjoyed her character better. I can't STAND Lindsay Hartley's acting, the girl is worse then Nadia and that's saying something.
