Did someone pour nasty pills into the Genoa City water supply? I feel the characters have all become so snarky and disagreeable. The overall tone of the show is tabloidesque. In order for me to enjoy the show, the characters need to have rooting value. That is somewhat lacking. Y&R has some good moments, but I am not really enjoying the show these…
I am not enjoying the Ridge/Brooke/Thorne story. Although the story is based in history, the brothers are being written in a really shallow, one-dimensional manner. If I here the phrase “little brother” one more time, I’ll scream. Additionally, the fact that two of these three major players are recasts pretty much kills any sense of histo…[Read more]
The scenes with Maggie and Eve were hilarious. It was quite absurd and over-the-top for Eve to send Maggie’s belongings to a consignment shop. I loved it when Maggie said she was starting to feel “nostalgic for the Bonnie Lockhart era.”
Loved the scenes with Victor and Sonny. Victor made some really valid points in his argument that Sonny is cr…[Read more]
Days is now the only serial that I watch without multitasking. I have given many kudos to Ron Carlivati for revitalizing the show. Now I’d like to extend that recognition to the entire writing staff. The show is segmented in a way that maximizes suspense and maintains a good pace. The dialogue is also very strong, emphasizing the complexity of t…[Read more]
Looks good, Freeman. Thanks! A few comments…
I agree that Marci Miller should appear in Lead this year. Greg Vaughan is definitely Supporting. I tend to think Freddie Smith is as well, although he is borderline. James Carver is definitely supporting.
I’m ok with Heather Tom and Katherine Kelly Lang in either Lead or Supporting. Their c…[Read more]
B&B certainly went all-out with sweeps excitement. But despite all the excitement, I do not feel very invested.
Part of the reason is because the story does not make sense to me. Given the events that went down, Sally should have hired an attorney to determine her rights regarding the Spectra building. Sally, Liam, and others know about Bill’s a…[Read more]
robbalto replied to the topic The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Daytime Emmy Season!) in the forum Daytime TV 1 week, 5 days ago
Thanks for the intel, EmmyLoser!
This is by no means a complete list, but some performances that stand out:
January 24: Nicole learns the truth about Chloe’s baby.
February 1: Nicole breaks up with Deimos.
February 20: Nicole loses custody.
October 16: Nicole reunites (briefly) with Eric.
March 24: Adrienne prepares f…[Read more]
Days of Our Lives continues to surprise and entertain every day. One of my favorite aspects of the writing is the careful thought that has been given to utilizing each character on the canvas in a manner that raises the stakes.
The show consists mostly of two big umbrella stories, both of which are intriguing.
The return of Will not only brings…[Read more]
I too am unhappy with Y&R. To give a few examples:
Victoria is my biggest issue. She has been one of my favorite characters since the spring, and now she is being destroyed in record time.
This is nothing new, but Victor. I am so over this character and the stupid stories in which he is involved. Enough!
I do not like Abby, and I have no…[Read more]

Thanks for getting this list together!
Lamon Archey is 36. I do not know the ages of Ryan Ashton and Abhi Sinha, but I am willing to bet they have aged out of this category.
I’m never any good at figuring out who is missing.
Days will not air on Thursday and Friday. I have not yet watched Tuesday or Wednesday’s episodes, so I will save them for the weekend. It’s great seeing Eileen on both Days and Y&R! Such a contrast!
Days of our Lives continued its streak today with another exciting episode.
Susan Banks is such an infuriating character. But it was such a great twist, and a great use of history, for Susan to claim Will as her son. It was a very clever way to transcend the typical amnesia story. Side note: I actually know someone who reminds me of Susan…[Read more]
Always happy to see more of Jenn Lilley! As for Brady, who knows what he will be doing in six months? But I’m sure their reunion will be explosive, especially since Brady’s dark side has taken over.
Gatorman: “Have they set up a meeting with Michael for Dina to change her power of attorney? Crystal is afraid that she’ll be found in witness protection, so she runs back to Genoa City and goes directly to Crimson Lights where Zack lives and hangs out?”
These are questions that I also asked myself. Such details chip away at the show’s c…[Read more]

Outstanding Young Actor: Casey Moss, Days of our Lives
Continuing from the previous episode, JJ deals with the aftermath of shooting Theo. He is devastated on both a personal and professional level. The episode ends with him reliving the shooting and, understandably, wallowing in torment.
I hate that Victoria is taking Brash & Sassy back to Newman Enterprises. Y&R has too many businesses. They need to narrow the focus to just Jabot and Brash & Sassy. I do not care at all about Newman Enterprises. I liked that Victoria was running her own company. I hate that she had to be “rescued” by the obnoxious Victor. I also hate the way they…[Read more]
The last week or so has been so outstanding. The discovery of Will; the confrontations with Susan Banks; Theo’s shooting; Brady’s attempt to frame Eve. And the list goes on. It has been a long time since I enjoyed a soap this much. So many great performances. Ron is writing great stories for his cast!
A summary of what I am enjoying about the…[Read more]
Freeman: “BILL! I really hate the way they are positioning him. It’s very similar to what they do with Victor on Y&R and Sonny on GH.”
I feel the same way. If Bill comes out on top, I will probably abandon the show. I am rapidly losing interest. I dislike Wyatt and Steffy more every day.

Outstanding Drama Series: Days of our Lives
Sami and Rafe confront Susan Banks; Sonny tells Will about his forgotten past; Abe agrees to Theo’s surgery; Hope takes JJ’s statement regarding Theo’s shooting; Marlena and John discuss Will; Claire, Lani, and Abe spend a few moments with an unconscious Theo prior to his…[Read more]
Perhaps Mal Young wants to go in a new direction with Nick and Noah, making that the point of the fire. The business with Dina being there was simply a plot contrivance/convenience.
I cannot tolerate Victor any longer. Mal needs to either mellow him out or take him down.
