    @Kaylarae (who once rudely suggested I use spell check) It’s c’est la vie, not se la vie. just a friendly correction.

  • bizzarr

    should be a good week for daytime

  • bizzarr

    it you love your show watch it tweet about it

  • Kayla Rae

    Thanks Jonnyboy…French phrases certainly are not my forte’. I’m not sure if spell check would even know how to handle such. And, jonnyboy, as you well know, you are no one to be pointing out rude behavior as you have gone far beyond rude in your behavior against me. I guess your apology to me a while back was as hollow as your….(fill in the blank). LOL

    By the way, GH really needs to tone down all their references to “relish” already. BORING! Is that really the best they have to offer? Jus’ sayin’.

  • jonboyelk

    @kaylaray no, the apology was sincere. I was merely pointing out the misspelling for your future benefit. Peace out, sister!

  • David

    @Mike no one is here to get you to watch any show. if people say they don’t see how anyone can watch that dumb show that is their opinion. They have a right to it just like you have yours. What people say on this forum or any forum is not going to factor into whether I watch a show or not and same goes for anyone else.

    People are posting an opinion if they think a show is dumb there right to say so if you don’t like it don’t read it.

  • Pat

    Maybe it’s just me, but I try to stay positive when talking about any show. I don’t think the negativity that some on here ONLY post is really benefiting anyone.

    Like my Grandma used to say,…if you don’t have anything nice to say…

    My two cents.

  • Kayla Rae

    We are all free to express our opinions, both positive and/or negative. If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

    I left a comment about how the scripts and dialogues in days are far better than it used to be for long time fans not so long ago. The problem with this site is that one guy or a girl is watching a show 5 minutes and then can assume they know exacly what’s going on in the soap. Let’s just say every soaps have 200 minutes of dialogues,images and actors per week! Complaining how others soaps are boring when someone watch only 5 minutes out of 200 minutes makes me wonder how we can take a real picture of that show. Also, Y&R anf B&B have dialogues that are totally differents from Days. Days has always been over the edge with black, bitchy, humor and dark, over the top dialogues. It’s working for people who enjoy those dialogues. I feel long time viewers are going back to see it because they know already , and exacly what they are going to see. As for the actors, I think the actors in Days are amazing and I thing they have a terrific cast. The soundtrack in Days is starting back to be good not as th 80′s (the golden years for supercouple theme songs..) , or the 90′s but it’s still more intriguing. I like the background music when Kristen is on, Will and Sonny little theme, some of the climax one’s during the cliffhanger episode, Nicole’s baby’s fall in the stairs, and the Nick and Gaby wedding fiasco, and recently Nick’s recent investigation about Will and Lucas past. The background sound has more kicks than it used to be and some people do not really notice but that’s make actually a subtle extra character for a storyline or not.

    Yah, but things are not perfect. The big failure about days in my opinion is they are restricted in their budget as other soaps as well and sometimes I feel their set directors and camera directors are not as creative as their acting cast and writers. They have to use same old day shots, and same locations and sets many times and sometimes it’s not making sense for a city auppose to be not so far away from Chicago but not too close also… Is it snowing or not in Salem, are they facing snow storms has they once did ??? The Horton Town square does not make sense to me … Are they outside or not??? If yes, dining with no coats at minus 5 or even 10 degree outside is a little edgy for me. Days used to have dark sets as well ; the loft, the pier, The dimera manor and all other places use to hold the black shade of the soap a while ago. They also had as I said before snow storms, winter conditions, rain, some major storms, hurricanes, blackouts and thunderstorms to keep viewers over the edge during mystery storylines about death, murders and possession… They should have some budget once or two times a year to have locations shots as they used to have for one or two major storylines. I love my show and I think he can improve but as I said before it’s in reality in better shape than it used in the end of the 2005-2011 area.
    Keep on the good work!

    Well said Pat.

    I find some of the statements here about opinions so funny. The same people who come out with those statements are the first ones that jump when someone posts something negative about their show….very quickly bashing that poster and calling them names. So much for having an opinion when it applies to their show.

  • David

    @ Mike I think your postings are dumb that is my opinion doesnt mean it is correct but my opinion. If I dont like something negative being said or classify someone as being a hater again my opinion and my right. The problem with Mike(AKA RIchard) Jay TN, and a couple others is if you don’t agree with exactly what they say then they will berate you etc for it and cry victim when you give it back to them.

  • Reality

    Its time act like adults in here. Freedom of speach. That also means you should respect everyones opinion. I think there are a few people in here who dish it out for no reason, but then jump on the defense so fast its crazy. I see that as I read some posts. Just saying…..

  • Pat

    Kayla Rae, I actually wasn’t talking to you directly. But trust me, I can take the heat.

    I just am expressing my opinion.

  • bizzarr

    damn is this a soap

  • bizzarr

    Y&R HAS ITS MOMENTS

  • bizzarr

    luke and scotty are so funny

  • Jason

    bizzarr, I agree. I like when Luke gets a taste of his own sarcastic medicine and Scotty dishes it back as good as he gets it. He had a great expression on his face when he said “au revoir, Spencer”, like a cheshire cat with a swallowed canary.
    What I’m looking forward to is seeing Heather again. I hope Steven Lars isn’t killed off since that character has been a part of GH history since 1977!!!
    In other news, where is Lesley Webber????

  • Mike

    I can’t believe that there have been no press releases for daytime so far. These ratings coming out are for the 2nd week of sweeps. I was hoping that we would get big things for the networks esp. CBS to brag about this week.

  • jonboyelk

    @Jason I was wondering the same thing about Lesley. I’m pretty certain the actress is older than Leslie Charleson. I liked her back in the late 70s. @Kaylaray I’ve been having a blast filling in the blank in your message to me. I’ve cone up with some amusing possibilities. Thanks for the chuckle. @y&r fans other than this contest they are running is there anything special planned to commemorate y&r’s 40th? I know Soapnet is doing a 50 hour marathon of GH and wonder if they will do something similar with y&r.

  • Mike

    @jonboy…since some sites are still saying that SoapNet is only running out existing contracts with companies and then go away, I bet they won’t do anything. Surely they would have been promoting it by now.

    The last I had read the deal with Sony is only to air the current episodes so they would have to purchase older episodes.
