Eugenia - Kate's "partner in crime" and a thorn in Sami's side.

OMG is that Eugenia?! I loved her. I wish Kate still had an assistant!

My favorite is when Sami broke into Eugenia's apartment and was hiding under the bed - hilarious!

I freaking loved Eugenia and how she was always putting Sami in her place!

Writers take note: this is how you should have been writing for Jeannie T and Anne Milbauer.

Note to casting and NBC execs: There are plenty of African American (and other non-Caucasian) actors out there who really know how to act. Stop hiring only light-skinned African American underwear models (both Camerons, Jet, Tek) who cannot act to fill your diversity quotas. Granted we have Abe and Maxine who both have darker skin, but Abe is a well established character with over 30 years on the show, and Maxine was brought on to be Days' version of GH's Epiphany. Because every soap needs a heavy-set sassy black nurse to prop their manwhore saintly doctor.

I disagree with you about Tek's acting abilities.

The punch alone is far more convincing than a lot of the stuff that's been offered up lately.

(unfortunately I can not support either Cameron or Jet).

More Tek

Oops my trip down tek memory lane is making me realise I actually liked Roman (JT version) with kate.

Apart from that ridiculous Alex North storyline I think I am in love with 2005 Days.

Eugenia! This show really was OTT in the past but whatever they wrote then is STILL 100X more entertaining than anything they have tried to put out after. JER had his disappointing moments but at least he knew how to tell a story, there was a beginning a middle and an end....a build up to a reveal....I miss him so

Loved Eugenia! She was certainly the Anne Milbauer before Anne Milbauer. But at least Eugenia had a real issue with Sami that we actually got to see, which made her purpose of getting revenge on Sami make much more sense and actually was interesting.

I miss him too. And I want to know what the ending for SSK was before it was the ridiculous "Melaswen"! And can you imagine if we didn't have any of those characters now? Jack wouldn't have been sacrificed at the alter of Dan, Maggie wouldn't have her egg (or egg wouldn't have her), Lexie might have gotten a storyline separate from Abe, and Roman would be gone.

(ok, I'd miss Doug, Caroline, Gram, and Jack but that's it; but most of them are gone now anyway).

Hmmm. I'd have to add Marlena to the list of those I'd miss. But for the most part, I'm missing her now, so is there any difference....

yeah, i guess i just figured even in JER's original, she and Tony/Andre would have been alive in the end.

OK, I take it back Concerned! Rhassan Orange's Tek was a much better actor than everyone I lumped him in with and quite frankly, better than most currently on the canvas. For some reason, I was confusing RO with Marcus Patrick's Jet.

I am loving all the clips you've been posting lately, so thank you very much for that! However they make me sad and lament the show that is on compared to back then (even during the Alex North storyline). :frownie:

People's reactions about EJami's conversation about Will should be interesting...
