The Joking About Marriage was spot On The Scene Where Joey Kissed Aubrey Was Very Convincing So Far Tom Is A Win As Joey For Me Log in to Reply Parrothead November 29, 2010 i love him & he & Terri are why i’m checking this show out. i loved him as Adam Munson on ATWT, he was the best one they had cast in the role. i haven’t watched this show in YEARS & i don’t know all the players anymore, but i can’t get past yet Ross Marler as Clint Buchannen, will take some getting use to.

I think it is wierd that on As The World Turns they played Katie Peretti and Adam Munson and their were aunt and nephew. Log in to Reply watchingallday November 29, 2010 I thought he was pretty good. He was good with ES and MA. I also enjoyed Terri more in her scenes than i did Gina Tognoni. After one day, I am already team Aubrey.

I did think he had one too many little awkward moments in his scenes with Viki and Natalie, there wasn’t an easy or relaxed charm that one would expect from that type of family reunion but that is not totally unexpected for his first scenes. And he almost ate TC’s face in their kissing scene at the end of the show. Log in to Reply curacaoman November 30, 2010 Awesome debut! OLTL is rocking it lately! Log in to Reply Greeneb2 November 30, 2010 I love Tom as Joey; he’s wonderful! Log in to Reply appleridge November 30, 2010 I Think OLTL Brought BMH In As Joey In 2003 with No Idea For Him I Hope They Know what they are Gonna Do With Joey This Time Cause TD Fits In Well Log in to Reply Plant48 November 30, 2010 Tom was fine as Joey especially since I never saw the show with the other “joeys”. But, Terri was outstanding. What an incredible screen presence- really enjoyed her when she was on. what a great addition to the show. Log in to Reply glowery November 30, 2010 I have tried to get into this show since they axed ATWT, but even with some of my all time favorite soap stars on the show, I just can’t stay interested. So now after B&B I venture out to my craft studio and work on my cards. At least this has given me the time to get all my Christmas cards made a couple of weeks early. Log in to Reply gslam November 30, 2010 My first impression of Tom Degnan as Joey is quite positive. Like some of the posters before me, I think he had great chemistry with Erika Slezak. And that kiss between him and Terri…WHOA…was on fire! Since when did it become a bad thing to kiss someone passionately? Now that’s seen as “eating someone’s face off?” Ha! If that’s what it is, then bring on the buffet, ‘cuz this boy is hungry! Can’t wait to see more Joey and Aubrey! Log in to Reply Dariclone November 30, 2010 I actually think that Terri Conn is a better actor than Tom Deagan. I’m not feeling it. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 November 30, 2010 Terri’s introduction was interesting, but it did make Kelly seem like an awfully big…..um, AIRHEAD….you know, with her TOTAL WILLINGNESS to tell a PERFECT STRANGER intimate details about her romantic history. Who does that??????!!!!!!! Of course, I guess if people used common sense on soaps, there’d be no stories. I’ll shut up and color, I guess. Suspending disbelief as we speak……… Tom was good, but I miss that cutie pie, Bruce Michael Hall.

[/quote] I LOVE HIM!! he is sooo geniune as Joey and he had instant chemistry with Erika Slezak ( Viki). He is a KEEPER!! Log in to Reply days4ever December 1, 2010 I have a huge crush on this guy. He is not the best looking guy in the world but there is something about him that is sexy. His smile lights up a room and he looks so sexy just standing there while he was talking to Aubrey after they had sex. I didn’t think I was going to like him but after two episodes I love him! I think I want him to get back with Kelly though because I think he has major chemistry with Gina T.

I just hope she gives better performances than she did in ATWT’s last months.

I didn’t know he hadn’t worked that much. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
