Charity Rahmer is the worst soap actress ever. She really is better suited for porn.

I pre-watched this last night and tried to have an open mind, but you're right. She's AWFUL. Even her voice is totally annoying. In the first clip (I think), she botches a line. That's kind of funny considering this was the days of "as many takes as it takes".

You're right - thanks. I was just using what the YouTube poster had in the titles. It's July 22, 2004. I'll update the thread. Thanks!

I actually feed bad for the actors that had to do the Melaswen storyline. What a dumb ass story.

And I had to FF Kyle and Charity as they both suck ass as Belle and Phillip.

Roman needs to speak more clearly and not like he has a mouth full of potatoes.

I know. You could see some of them smirking when they were like, "It LOOKS like the Penthouse, but really it's not!" as they stood amid palm leaves on the old sets.

OMG....Jan/Shawn and the cage....hee hee...I sort of loved this story...in a weird crazy freaky sort of way....I wouldn't mind having Jan back.....I think her and Lucas could actually be pretty hot...and she's BSC...something Lucas loves....

Anyway...Rahmer...yeah...let's not discuss this or else my rant will take up 5 pages. Let's just say thank GOD for Martha Madison!

Lumi and the bear that somehow ended up not being in Marlena's casket, lol.

JACK! and the real Jennifer...pregnant and all

Hope and Patrick....never cared for Patrick but he was hawt....

I absolutely loved the show back then and this is why....I loved J&J and Lumi, so I had them...I enjoyed the craziness of the Jan/Shawn/Belle/Philip story minus the recasts...but anyway....I was entertained with Hope and Patrick....and we got some Marlena and Roman interaction coupling with John sightings.....you see just ONE episode and you could tell the following vets had a bunch of story:

Hope, Jack, Jennifer, Lucas, Sami, Marlena, John, Roman....even Doug makes an appearance and he was on during this time as it's around the melaswen reveal....

now we get the likes of the over used 4 and nothing else...no real romance, no good couplings....not even a good few stories....nothing...oh well.....I'll look forward to tomorrow's classic episode so I can remember how good this show was once upon a time....and I wasn't a fan of Reilly's writing all the time but the man had a vision and stuck with it....and he knew how to write romance too.

Idk. The actors all seemed to love Melaswen. That's why it's hard to get excited when they're excited about a story.

Really? I've heard some stories that suggest they HATED it. (Like stuff they said at fan events.) If they talked it up in SOD interviews or something, I don't think that's proof that they liked it.

One thing I loved about JER's writing was the pacing. Yes, it was slow, but it was even, and just enough happened each episode that you wanted to tune in tomorrow. I know MarDar said in interviews that they were doing that, but they weren't. With JER, there was always some mini-cliffhanger, with Fridays being more of a cliffhanger. Whenever we post a JER episode here, it's self-contained enough that people can get the idea of what's going on, and you usually wonder what happens next.

Kristian has said multiple times it was one of her favorites. And they all seemed excited about it early on. Though, honestly it wasn't until late in the story when it became obvious that it wasn't going to resolve in a way that would make sense that it really went down hill. But I said "seemed", nothing about proof, lol.

I totally agree. He was also very good at the build up/payoffs and not climaxing all the stories at once...something that clearly TomSell just did during May sweeps and now the show is again boring....for example...look at the date of this show...late July...not really a sweeps period and it was the summer but you still had so much going on... IDK.....it just feels that we'll never get something like this again...no matter who they have writing...

and mind you JER's second run left a lot to be desired...in comparing it to his first run....but still.....he was miles ahead of anyone since....too bad the guy ended up dying...because I could certainly see Corday going back to him or the network demanding him to come in again if he weren't dead.

Oh Charity Rahmer, :lol: if ever i need a laugh, her scenes are always a good bet.

this makes me miss Jason Cook and Heather Lindell though :( Not so much Charity Rahmer or Kyle Brandt though...

Charity Rahmer really does make these scenes between Belle and Philip seem like the beginning of a bad porn movie.

they prob liked the story b/c it turned out nobody was dead. So for bts it was probably great. On screen though....sucked.

I mean, can you imagine, if Maggie had died we'd never have Egg-baby scenes.
