Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! :hail:

Jack and Jennifer are my favorite couple of all time. Love them, but have to admit was not thrilled with the wild west wedding. Didn't like Jennifer's dress and didn't like them turning into a slapstick comedy. This was the beginning of the end for any good writing for them. And don't even get me started on the LA Honeymoon. :drunk: But still wonderful to come to DR and see Jack and Jennifer staring at me at the beginning of the daily thread.

Thanks Supergirl for the avi.

Love, love Jack and Jen...but now I really want to read that article about "TV's Dumbest Characters" circa 1991.

I'm guessing you don't mean you want us to discuss "Who are TV's dumbest characters?"?? ;)

Lordy. That was easier than I thought. It was right at the top in my box of 1990s SOD.

Wattage Key: 25 Watt - Clueless to life on this planet; 40 Watt - Catches on sometimes, but repeats the same mistakes; 60 Watt - Usually savvy, but has a major blind spot.

Lic Lafferty (As the World Turns) - 60 Watt
Cord Roberts (One Life to Live) - 40 Watt
Nina Kimble (The Young & the Restless) - 60 Watt
Dawn Winthrop & Decker Moss (General Hospital) - 25 Watt
Sally Spectra Garrison (The Bold & the Beautiful) - 60 Watt
Mickey Horton (Days of our Lives) - 60 Watt
So-Called Job: Darned good attorney
Dumbest Move Lately: Mickey's a workaholic who neglects wife Maggie and daughter Sarah. Maggie embarked on a clandestine affair with family friend/co-worker Dr. Neil Curtis. (He happens to be Sarah's father, though only Neil and Maggie know it.) Perceptive Sarah trailed the couple to a country inn and caught them in bed. Good old Mickey, on the other hand, is clueless. Does he notice his wife's jittery, erratic behavior? No. Mickey approved of Neil and Maggie going away together on a business trip. He even helped Neil win a coveted appointment at the hospital. All the signs are there, but it's taking Mickey a long time to read them.

Melanie Cortlandt (All My Children) - 60 Watt
Cruz Castillo (Santa Barbara) - 60 Watt
Paulina Cantrell (Another World) - 25 Watt
Micheal Fairgate (Knots Landing) - 40 Watt
Abril Domecq (Loving) - 25 Watt

I was definitely watching back then because Jack and Jennifer were on....but I don't remember Maggie and Neil having an affair. I do kind of remember Mickey ignoring her though. I must have blocked the other part out, or was fast forwarding them. Don't think I would have wanted to see Maggie and Neil in bed together. :x

I remember the Neil & Maggie affair. It irritated me that they retconned Sarah's paternity (but not nearly as much as the whole egg-baby retcon with Daniel).
Jack and Jennifer's wedding was not my fave. Silliness aside, the editing bothered me. They obviously reshot Jenn saying oart of her vows because the background goes black. Someone watching it once probably didn't notice, but I was never someone who watched their scenes just once, lol.

How I miss this classic J&J. Jack deserved better than how this show treated him over the years. He was one of the most dynamic characters I have ever had the pleasure of watching, and I have never loved any Days character as I loved him.

Why they took such a complex, grey character as Jack and turned him into someone who frequently displayed pratfall comedy is something I'll never understand (even though Jack and Jennifer had some wonderful comedic moments). And lord do I miss this Jennifer Rose. Having said that, I do hope at some point we get to see some kind of interaction between Matt Ashford and Casey Moss---even if it's just Ghost Jack.

Having the REAL Jack with Casey Moss's JJ would be incredible. Gotta say, Casey Moss is the reason I don't fast forward alot of scenes. The guy is a natural and has even improved the past few months. But I'd kill to see him in scenes with Jack ....but as much as I miss Jack I don't want him back only because I just can't watch a very very dead man die again.

Considering how long I had waited for this moment for Jack and Jenn, it was somewhat of a letdown to have it be featured as a comedy fest. And then to add insult to injury, the writers soon after introduced that creepy Hawke who quite easily duped Jack out of every penny he had. :frustration:

Jennifer is wearing a white shirt to jog.

SuperDaniel tells Nicole they can help Eric after all.

Eric is praying.

Oh, Rory and Bev and JJ are talking about their plan to get Theresa. I like them.

Theresa is chatting with the new wave mail girl. And Theresa is wearing a top more appropriate for a club.

T is waiting on Rafe. T fills Rafe in on Nick Fallon showing up.

Oh there's some Nick and Gabi stuff by the river, and let's just say Gabi is freaked out.

And Julie...I love you, but you need to stop shipping Nick & Gabi.

Okay, remember when Will was coming out, and there was a bunch of random "Day" gays all hanging out with Sonny? Now, Eric has a crew of "day" clergy. Father Matt, Father Louis...and now a monk.

Daniel has a plan...Nicole is wearing an angora sweater and she's on board. The angora is appropriate because Daniel dialogue could be straight out of an Ed Wood movie.

Looks like Wilson aren't on today, they took Ari for breakfast somewhere and left a note. I hope it's a nice brunch place. Rafe shows up at the apartment to see Gabi about Nick being back in town.
