God, he sounds as awful as his character does. Blah. Can he please leave?
I have to agree with you. Normally, he comes off as pretty decent and level headed. Not this time! He sounds almost as unbearable as his character.
Isn't Daniel great? Isn't Daniel selfless? Isn't it awesome that Daniel's all over the place crusading to save others from themselves? Isn't it wonderful that he's so intertwined with all these women, like Jennifer, Abigail, Theresa, and Nicole? And that he's providing guidance to his late rival's troubled teenage son, which includes giving pep talks about the dignity of manual labor? Yeesh--you have to wonder if SC's been told by higher-ups to push his character as hard as the show currently does. You will love Daniel--even if it kills you. Not gonna work on me. Bludgeoning me over the head with a Gary Stu's kewlness just makes me resent him more.

I generally like Daniel & I like Shawn Christian. I just wish they'd introduce a love interest for him that's JUST for him instead of always shoehorning him into another couple in another storyline. IMO, the character's biggest problem is that they always want to put him with another character where the general desire is to see that character with another pairing or as a spoiler for a pairing that already exists. It hasn't done the character any favors.

The writers have caused us to hate Daniel with a passion.No one likes to have someone shoved down their throat 24/7......who behaves sleezy and we are told he is Mr Wonderful and he can do no wrong.Its like Corday is a dictator who is telling us we HAVE to love Daniel no matter what.What PTB do that?No one really cares a flying fig about Dan and his adventures.And now they will have JJ looking at Daniel with stars in his eyes makes me sick. :redface: :hmmph:

There are actually characters I have hated more than Daniel, I just find him supremely annoying and I see no end of it in sight, I feel like DAYS wants to go out with Daniel in the middle of the cast picture with the way they're so freaking determined to make him stick. That makes me more irritable, the sheer hopelessness of this pushing never ending :blulaugh: Ah well. I'm sure SC is just trying to keep his job and sell the product, I really don't care as much about actors as some do though, these days they're just my potential spoiler resources.

The thing is everything on this show is Daniel this,Daniel that.....and it is down right irritating to say the least.No one else seems to matter anymore.And now Hope is on the St Daniel/The Fair Jennifer bandwagon asking about Jenn and him.......instead of the other way around.........why wasn't Dan asking Hope where Bo is and how wonderful they are together?Bope were/are a supercouple .....not Dannifer.

Yeah I hear you, Daniel Jonas is this never-ending project and it's laborious to watch.

Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!

If they ever do bring Daniel Jonas' father in Salem, let's make it easy for casting...

I was thinking about the writing for the Daniel/JJ storyline. It's like Tomsell thought - hey, it'll be just like Hamlet! Except, wouldn't it be cool if instead getting revenge on Claudius for replacing his father, Hamlet/JJ realizes that his father was an awful human being and Claudius/Daniel is wonderful and sexy and his mother's true love! Boy, Hamlet would have been so much better if Shakespeare was as smart as we were! Because if Claudius were Daniel Jonas, the audience would totally cheer for that!

Seriously, I have no beef with Shawn Christian, just the awful, artificial and ridiculous and intrusive writing his character gets.

I mentioned that on another board a couple of months ago.......they do think they are a modern day Shakespeare.....but nothing could be far from the truth.But if that be,I'd like to see them write Daniel as puck......instagating and propping everyone else up in Salem. B-) Now that I would watch!;)
BTW.....do you think Dan would do George Hamilton any justice?lol

All the show needs to do with Daniel is simply get him the fuck OUT of Jennifer's orbit PERMANENTLY and get SC some acting lessons.

Problem solved!
