Man, I do not understand Luke's fascination with Sami Brady and Allison Sweeney(really, as good as Jonathan Jackson? Really?!?!). Hell, she's lucky to be in the Top 5 best actresses just on DAYS(Suzanne Rogers, Deidre Hall, Ari Zucker, Christie Clark and, until recently, Renee Jones are, in fact, all superior actresses)much less a force to be reckoned with on daytime. I just don't get it.

Hilarious!!!! I had to laugh so many times. Thanks guys!

Kirsten Storms back on DAYS would be something I'd like to see too. Maybe if her return to GH doesn't work out for whatever reason, it'd be perfect to have her and Jason Cook back as Belle and Shawn. Love

But for now, I'm excited about Eileen Davidson coming back to the show! I really hope the writers don't mess this one up. Don't see a problem with bringing Kristen back but when you bring back Susan back, you really have to be up for the game.
And then there still is the question where this latest DAYS reboot will go. Are we seeing the DAYS of the 70s, 80s or 90s?

Brad Bell doesn't seem to understand a thing these days. He doesn't get that a Katie/Bill/Steffy triangle is his money couple as he does let KKL interfere when it comes to Deacon. Bad moves!

They should just put out the picture from the new GH opening. They make no sense! Some are what? Five years old. And as you guys pointed out the pairings are ridiculous. Keep it simple, just show the GH and let that be it.

Marco Dapper is HOT!!!! Beach Balls, baby. LOL But yeah I'm with Jamey, us liking something on Y&R, the guy will have his walking papers by next week.
She didn't like Maura West, really???? What the hell is wrong with this woman? And don't let me even start to think what poor Sharon Case ever did do to her. INSANE!!!!

OK Luke, I've always thought the rest of the DC crew could be kinda mean to u, but today it was very much justified!!!! AND I thought I was alone when it came to the Abby/Carmine stuff that was liking!!!

Jamey, please make sure that you get Jillian's opinion on Luke's comment about Alison Sweeney being as talented as Jonathan Jackson!!!! That would've been priceless...
P. S. I love trying to understand the title of the podcast before I actually listen to it!!!

@Jamey: I often wonder if these soaps coordinated their storylines around one another. Melodie gets kidnapped on Days and then a few weeks later Abby is kidnapped on Y&R.

Though I wish they'd kidnap Maria Hell and keep her locked in that room with the ball Dina Higley is still playing with.

GET HIM JAMEY! GET HIM! ROTFLMAO!!!

I’m listening to Jamey go hard on Luke for saying that Dame Allison Sweeney is as good as the truly talented Jonathan Jackson and this has got to one of the funniest things I’ve heard on DC yet.

Jamey, I second Nk3play2 request. Please get Jillian’s take on this, um how should I say, acting assessment. LOL!

None of the people named BELL, seem to have received any of Bill Bell's talent as a writer. Really too bad. I know that Maria is just a Bell by marriage and in name only, so we have to excuse her for being so, NON-TALENTED.

@everyone. I just saw a local casting call for an upcoming abc cooking show. Does anyone know what that is all about?! Daytime filler? Or Primetime filler?

Any thoughts?

I'm still listening to and being entertained by the DC Podcast.

Okay, I just had to edit this post, you all are hilarious as usual. And Jamey is truly outrageous (in a hilarious way!). I know what you're saying about why the good ones leave to farm, put on one man/woman traveling shows or conduct Bible study abroad groups.

Does anyone remember Frank Runyeon's Steve from As The World Turns? What they did to his character was an all time Fail from TPTB. Guess what he is doing now? When ATWT was going off the air, I heard they asked him back for a few weeks and at first he said yes, but then said "Nah...I'll pass".
Some of the hair models as Douglas Marland used to call them, seem to have nine lives on these shows nowadays.

And Luke with that Tad Martin is evil assertion (LOL)...

@/msagentprovocateur1 That cooking show that ABC is going around is a competition show almost like Top Chef, I think that maybe a mid season/ summer show, You can't do a Top Chef like show 5 days a week. At least I hope you can't.

Alison Sweeney is the cornerstone of Days. She is one of the best if not the best actress on Days.

Alison Sweeney is a capable and energetic performer. Jonathan Jackson is magic. That's the difference. And it's a hella big one.

Alison Sweeney is a good actress. But that's it! I don't consider her as one of the best in Daytime. Not even the best actress on DAYS. Jonathan Jackson? That's ANOTHER UNIVERSE!!!!

Jonathan Jackson is overrated. Sweeney is a decent actress on Days. But to me she has no sex appeal and just snarls all the time.

As for B&B you might want to check out the ratings. When Bill and Steffy were hitting it, ratings were in the gutter. With Liam, Steffy, Hope the show has gotten a resurgence and from m perspective is better than it's been in years. Plus it's about the only soap that now doesn't degrade women horribly and let's the women, Brooke, Hope, Steffy even Katie drive story.

Alison Sweeney is the most OVERRATED actress on Days. The best or even one of the best? Uh, no. On a strong day she's adequate and on a typical day she's one of the worst on Days(Lisa Rinna and Camila Banus have her beat but is that really saying much?); Jamey channeling those Sweeney line readings was spot on in every way. Frankly, I don't think there's an actress in daytime who's as one-note and yet gets as much heavy story as Sweeney does.

Allison Sweeney is ok but she's nothing special.

Allison is overrated as an actor.I find her range limited and she screams a lot....yeek! Ms Sweeney has many fans who love her character and she can do no wrong.

Summary - the character of Sammy is more important to the fans than the lack of talent.

LMAO! Jamey, I thought you were going to have a heart attack regarding AS v/s JJ - LOL! Luke does say some really oddball stuff, but I never understand why it bothers Jamey and Jillian (I can't imagine what would have happened if she was on this podcast) so much. Whatever, it makes for hilarious podcasts regardless. It would be comedy if Luke does that mess on purpose Wink

"When I get to heaven, do I get a weave?" - OMG, I thought [i]I[/i] was going to have a heart attack when Jamey said this! *dead*

What is it about working on daytime dramas that makes quite a few of them flee to the farm? I thought I was the only one that noticed this. It tends to be the really talented, but even some of the hair models go way off the reservation and never act again after leaving a soap. What the hell do they do to these people?

Marco Dapper - lawd! If this soap thing don't work out, he needs to do porn or leak a sex tape (why are they still called "tapes"?), or something. You know, for his...craft! I still find Carmine completely pointless on Y&R besides the eye candy factor.
