Please post all interesting/spoilerish tweets in this thread. If a news article or new video is also tweeted (for example by SOD or NBC), it should probably go in its own thread, following our normal rules. This thread is for tweets, usually from someone on the list below, which give us information in some way about anything related to the show or upcoming storylines.

Please link each tweet and then set it off in italics, quotes or a quote box. To link a tweet, click "expand" and then click "details". That will give you the link to the tweet on its own page. If this is difficult (ie posting from a phone), please at least set off the tweet in quotation marks.

If anyone has names to add to this thread, please PM them to me rather than putting them in the thread. There are unfortunately a lot of fake accounts out there, and we want to verify each account is legit before putting it in this list.

I have entered the below list as a "Twitter List" under the DaytimeRoyalty twitter account. To access it, go to

http://twitter.com/DaytimeRoyalty/days-of-our-lives

Then click "Follow this list". It will then appear in your lists.

Thanks! :smile:

It is unlikely SOD will print any letter that bashes an actor/actress, producer or headwriter. Try to be reasonable and respectful with your criticism, but don't be afraid to express your point of view about the show and its storylines.

If the comment line inboxes are full, wait until they're emptied and call back later.

The PR team at Days wants us to let everyone know they check this board daily and they report our feedback to producers. They also check the comment line, so make sure to call it often and leave your feedback about the show!

Perhaps if Drake wanted off the bench, he should've put more effort into hitting homeruns and less effort into taking the easy walk to first.
I agree. A lot of actors on soaps have/had to deal with out of character writing or just plain bad writing in general. Some can rise above it and turn in some great performances; others just don't even try. Drake falls into the latter category. He had countless opportunities opposite ED and DH to show something and he blew it.

Or the writers could give a shit about the vets and write something for them. :shrug:
Why? When you're an actor, vet or no, you act what is given you. All the vets have gone through crappy writing. They've either risen above it (Matt Ashford, Kristian Alfonso, John Aniston when he's seen, Deidre Hall), or they fall on their faces and Clint Eastwood their way through it. The actors have to do their parts, too. Just because the writers are perceived as not doing their jobs doesn't mean the actors can't do their jobs, no matter how hard they have to try to make sense out of it.

No matter how he acted it, the outcome would have still been the same. It would still be upsetting to those who like John and Marlena. I was annoyed with it, because it was so incredilby lame, and an obvious destruction of a marriage that was once strong.

John would still have attemted to sleep with Kristen, he would still have been willing to destroy his mariiage to save his grown Son, He would still have been telling Marlena that he thinks he has feelings for Kristen, and he still would have walked away from Marlena without attempting to fight for her. This is what they have written for him.

I personally don't particular care how he acted it because the whole thing was ridiculous in the first place. What kind of stupid plan was that. There was no logic or intelligence to it. If his son was 8 years old, I could more understand him willing to walk away from his marriage of how many odd years to save him, but Brady is a grown man, with a mind of his own. He was repeatedly warned about Kristen and he chose to ignore everyone and get involved with her. He even fought his dad over her. After that John should have just let him be to make his own mistakes and learn from it.

Instead we got a strong marriage that is now destroyed, and Brady turned into a complete idiot. The story ended and nobody won, and we got nothing from it. It makes you wonder if the sole purpose was to really destroy John and Marlena, so that they can keep JOhn off screen.

There's a very big difference that would have happened if DH had put forth effort - if he had, he wouldn't have lost the support of several people. People who would have been disappointed that he was taken off screen, under different circumstances. The writers turned (some) people against John. DH turned (some) people against himself.

An employee being given a crappy task is no excuse for that employee to turn in a crappy performance on the job. Anybody who has ever held a job has been given work to do that they didn't like - and many of them have not been compensated nearly as well as Drake has been.

Instead of doing the best he could with rotten material he was given, Drake went out and made things even worse with some horrific acting. He was flat out embarrassing to watch so I can only imagine how the suits at Days and NBC felt about him.

I do feel badly for fans of Drake and his character. The writing for John has been atrocious; but Drake should have tried to rise above it instead of sinking below it. I don't know if things would be different now if he had given Olivier caliber performances; but he did not help his cause by going the Pauly Shore route.

I agree the plan was to destroy Jarlena and get rid of Drake. He was probably like his longtime fans, annoyed with the crap TPTB insist on forcing on the show.
