The way they write women period on this show is disgusting but if we are to be fair, the way they write men as moronic idiots is also crazy stupid. I hate the characters under Tomlin and Whitesell and I do believe that rumor now that when Dena was supposedly the HW, she was not doing any HW, it was all these two that are writing now. You could tell simply by the way they write the character. Sami is more in character now than she's been in a while, but IMHO she is so far from rootable in a story that should make her rootable that it's not funny. Ej is now just like any other of sami's men, willing to move heaven and earth for her but doing very little to get it done. He can buy judges, which the other two couldn't do, he has more resources at his disposal to free Sami than anyone else I know but somehow he's done NOTHING and I think he'll do nothing. How about trying to get his hands on the evidence box, or trying to find the razor, or proving somehow the link between Stefano and Bernardi? But he has done nothing but talk to Kayla about what SHE found. Anyway.....Dan is still a disgusting womanizing idiot, Jen is a stupid bitch who barely grieved her husband but falls at the feet of Dr. Extraordinaire every time the guy says he's done with her. Abby is still an insecure virgin, Kate is gazing lovingly into the eyes of her fuck buddy, Nicole is expressing her feelings for Eric to virtually all of Salem, everyone is listening but Eric. Kristen is still BSC and she's in character...but her focus on Brady was off.....frankly I can see this show taking a huge turn for the worse in 6 months time unless major changes are made NOW

I have run out of words, emoticons, and meme's.............and still the war rages....
Basically. And it's odd because, IMO, there so many interesting things happening on the show right now to talk about instead. Oh well. :shrug:

It helps when y'all don't chime in with these posts that add nothing to the discussion and have nothing to do with the topic. ;)

If there's something better to talk about, talk about it. Otherwise they're free to continue their discussion as long as it stays within the limits of the rules.

I think some of the men are written as moronic and clueless, but they are given multiple facets to their lives. Dan is not just God's gift to women, he's also a brilliant surgeon -- just ask anyone in Salem. Justin is a top lawyer. EJ is a shrewd businessman who managed to pull off a huge coup at DiMera Enterprises. Sonny owns a successful business and is expanding it into a nightclub. Eric is clueless about love, but he is a dedicated priest who has managed to expand St. Luke's by starting the school. Until he got bashed in the head, Rafe was a super cop. Even Nick, fresh out of jail, has been shown to be in-demand for his business acumen. The only guys who don't really have jobs that have played any role in recent storylines are Will , Chad, and Brady (who, nonetheless, is an exec at Titan).

Compare that to the women on the show. Hope and Kayla are the only ones who really have anything resembling active careers that seem to actually play a role in storylines, and they not-so-coincidentally happen to be the two female characters who the show is reluctant to put into romantic storylines. Beyond that, what do the other women do? Jennifer has a job she barely does. She once was a top reporter. Now, she is the hospital's PR person and seems to have no aspirations to doing anything more. Nicole? She's been helping at the church. Theresa? The low-level assistant, who is only there because her aunt got her the job and seems to have no ambition either. Gabi? Abby?

Oh, sorry, I did forget about Sami, the world's least-qualified cosmetic's company CEO.

Hmmm. They did it twice. Onscreen. So it wasn't an one night stand :shrug: .
It's interesting if Eric ever wonders how come Kristen is so good informed about Nicole and Brady's sex life.

Wow. So Chad is really diagnosed with brain tumor. I find it kinda cruel to have two of Stefano's children battle the same illness in such a short time. Especially if they choose to kill him off. I wouldn't miss Chad if he died, since he's the least memorable DiMera, but I wish they wouldn't give him such an exit.

Well they were planning on going away together but Eric's illness prevented it. I don't think it's that big of a lie unless Kristen leads him to believe that it was going on while Bristen were together. :shrug:

"Jennifer and Daniel reunite"
PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!! :frustration:
Maybe it will the very next day, if Daniel is "infuriated" by Jen-Jen's proposal. Wonder if my guess about a "secret" reconciliation is accurate. Honestly, this whole moronic storyline and pairing are even more offensive to me because the show's coming up on the first anniversary of Jack's death by elevator. And his so-called widow spent 90% of the year leading up to it obsessing over another man. I'm waiting for TomSell to have Daniel propose on August 15, just to add insult to injury. :flipoff:

ETA: And looking over these again, I really wish Jennifer cared as much about salvaging her relationship with her son as her relationship with her boyfriend. We don't see anything about Jennifer and JJ having a heart-to-heart talk or Jennifer taking JJ to a special place or Jennifer being determined about getting to the root of JJ's problems. Nope, it's still all about Daniel, Daniel, Daniel for her, and it doesn't make me like or respect her any better. Stick to your damn guns, you stupid bint. Or at least be honest enough to admit that you don't give a damn about being a mom and all you want is to relive your teenage dating years and to hell with the real teenager in the house.

That's what the SOD said Eric believed but It doesn't say if Kristen made him think it or if he came to that conclusion on his own.

Theresa flirts with Nick
In my haste, I initially read this as "Theresa flirts with Nicole" instead of Nick. LOL. And...I was actually a little intrigued. :P

Thumbs down for the continued Jen/Dan assault. I also just can't bring myself to get excited over a new romance for Rafe, no matter who the love interest is.

Brady encourages Nicole to talk to Eric about her feelings RIGHT when Eric finds out about Bristen's affair?!?! Damnit! My Ericole loving heart weeps... but this is soapy as hell and I like it! I hope Nicole doesn't let him think it was ongoing. Come on, girl. :shame:

In SOD it says she does let him think it was ongoing. The exact quote is, "instead, she lets him believe the worst: that she has continued to sleep with Brady long after their brief hookup when he and Kristen split."

lol, that actually made me mad when I read the article. It's so stupid of Brady to encourage Nicole to tell Eric how she feels. Did he think of what it would do to Eric? How it would make him feel? I don't want to say Brady's being a bad brother, but he's not exactly being a good one right now.

What the hell is up with that?! Brady should help Nicole by playing matchmaker and finding someone new for Nicole, offering Nicole a new job, or helping her find one at the Spectator.

Also, Eric needs to stop questioning his employees about their privet sex lives. It's none of his business what Brady and Nicole were doing if it doesn't affect the church in any way. Is he doing that with the other females who are working around the church in other capacities? Seriously Eric, do you want a sexual harassment suit brought against the church?

Is Nicole letting Eric believe that it was an ongoing hookup the "unflattering lie" referenced in the other spoiler? I guess I just don't really see how that's necessarily unflattering. I assumed she was going to tell Eric she thought he was ugly or something, lol.
