Days of our Lives returned after the Olympics to Salem’s DAYSaster. DAYS is heading into a bullying storyline for Sonny, but should the NBC soap try something new in its gay storyline? Why are Will and Gabi ending up in bed together?

Jason and Sam broke up on General Hospital. Will Jason save Elizabeth from Ewen? Has Ewen become a more interesting character working for the dark side? What is Jerry Jacks' master plan for the citizens of Port Charles?

    I’m in total agreement with you on B&B. For a while I like Steffy/Liam/Hope too, now it’s the same thing over and over. There is no story and few characters have a live outside those three and all Steffy and Hope life for is to be with Liam. I’m tired of it too, but B&B ratings are on the rise, so someone must be liking it.

    Yeah I read the Will and Sonny spoilers and was disappointed. We went through all this before with Kish on OLTL. Nick got bashed (a story that was supposed to play out longer), while at the same time had that baby drama with Stacy/Sierra Rose. Now, we have Sonny getting bashed, while Will sleeps with Gabi and probably end up pregnant. I don’t need a redo. Why can’t gay characters get stories besides coming outs, gay bashings, raising kids? Why can’t Will have a one night stand with another guy? Just write the gays as you do everyone else.

    What I want to know is, when are they going to have say EJ or Chad or Daniel have a one night stand with some guy? I mean, most soaps seem to have no problem having gay characters accidentally have sex with someone of the opposite sex, or have these one night stands for one reason or another – you never see the straight characters just stumbling into bed for a one time experience with someone of the same sex. So Daniel seems to sleep with all his female patients – is he never attracted to a male patient? Couldn’t a distraught Chad have needy sex with Will one night? It’s just a little on the offensive side that a gay character’s sexuality seems to be somewhat fluid to daytime writers, but straight characters don’t fall into the same trap.

    Holy crap… Jillian, Jamey & Luke, I had to look up “Black Tail” magazine too, and I think I found it around the same time Luke did because as soon as my page loaded, Luke said, “Oh my God!” I was in stitches, I almost started hyperventilating!!! ROTFLMAO!!!

    B&B: I went on vacation a few weeks ago so I was away from all the soaps, and B&B is the only one I can’t really seem to get back into so something really needs to be done!!!

    Y&R: When it comes to a Noah Newman recast, Kevin Schmidt is not a real big loss; he’s not the best younger actor, I liked him better when he was the chubby fat boy in Cheaper By the Dozen… However, it infuriates me that Bryton James is constantly used as a freaking “Talk to” propping both Neil and Lily’s stories; give Devon a damn storyline please Josh Griffith; screw flushing out Roxanne’s backstory, have them elope, and have Roxy die on the way back from the honeymoon; send Devon to the damn bottle, and just let all of the Tucker McCall/Katherine Chancellor jeans come out of him; when they do get the NuNoah, put him back with Eden, and then let Devon start interfering; Abby sees Devon self destructing and runs to his aide, and they fall in love, by that time, Devon’s done so much dirt that is has started a rivalry with NuNoah pitting the Katherine’s grandson vs. Victor’s grandson, with the grandparents torn.

    Days/DOOL: I thought that Will slept with Gabi after realizing he has feelings for Sonny and finding out about T assaulting him; that would make more sense because he and Gabi have always been friends but I really don’t have a problem with them sleeping together. As for the bullying story, I won’t judge it until I see it. They need to start rebuilding the DiMeras asap by turning Chad into a mind controlling badass who likes to torture Gabi pitting him against Rafe… Sami needs to admit her feelings for EJ and move back into the DiMera mansion with her kids and EJ!!!

    Question: Why wasn’t Billie Reed killed in this damn catastrophe??? I would’ve rather she died than Madison and Jack!!!

    GH: I am loving Jerry right now, and I feel really bad for Ewen. I still hate Carly and Johnny, because Laura Wright had some of her best chemistry I’ve seen in a long time with Sean Blakemore (Shawn) but I do like him and Alexis. Kristina is finally acting like a normal person instead of a raging bitch on wheels, and I’m loving her now; I’ve liked Trey from day one, and Joe, Jr. is the person I love to hate right now!!! Loving the Skate redo though I tried not to (because of the recast); Dante and Lulu are just amazing, the scene when he found out she was pregnant is kind of similar to Luke and Laura’s when she got pregnant with Lucky… I’m having Michael and Starr withdrawals, need them back ASAP!!!

    P. S. Dear DC Gang,
    Back off of Chad Duell

    When I saw the spoilers for Days,I was really upset.I agree with everyone that Will sleeping with Gabi was just stupid.Now if she winds up pregnant I will really be pissed.Can’t they just let WilSon be.

    Amen! I was going to post a comment to the DC gang saying welcome to my world as a lesbian viewer of almost any media. The “lesbian” characters in film and on television are forever sleeping with men, so I feel your pain and frustration with the turn in the Will storyline. I’m pretty sure you can count on the girl getting pregnant. It’s like a soap law that if you don’t want a baby, you’re gonna get one and when you do want a baby, you couldn’t get pregnant by Sonny Corinthos even if you were Sami Brady.

    Hilarious podcast though and Luke, I had to look up Black Tail magazine too.

    Damn if y’all didn’t have me looking up Black Tail Magazine on my iPhone in a Washington, DC metro station and clutching my pearls as hard as Luke. Jillian Bowe, my podcast Diva, you and that co-hort of yours Jamey Giddens is such a bad influence. LOL!!!

    wished more people had as much class and balls as Crystal Chappell on the “Missygate”

    http://www.venicetheseries.com/blog/category/vblog/

    time for everyone to move on and live their own lives!

    Who cares what an actors view is on ANYTHING!

    Sadly, a lot of people care and bigots feel empowered when their heroes in Hollywood and in the sports world, along with politians and religious leaders put out anti-gay propaganda and hate. The end result is bullying and violence against gay kids/teens/young adults. We all should care and Missy should have the balls to come out and say something otherwise she’s feeding that burning hate and ruining innocent people’s lives.

    AS FOR THE BLACK TAIL…I WAS AS NAIVE AS LUKE AND ALMOST DIED LAUGHING ON THE BUS WHEN I WAS LISTENING TO THIS PODCAST. I LOVE THE SCOOP AND COMMENTARY YOU GUYS DELIVER WEEKLY BUT IT’S YOUR OFF-THE-WALL SLASH GOOFY CHEMISTRY THAT SET YOU GUYS APART FROM THE REST. THANKS JAMEY, JILLIAN, LUKE ET AL!!!

    Ok Jamey the foolery once again continues, and I love the foolery btw!

    The whole blacktail was so funny, and it was priceless! Luke I’m going to go here but it with love. That how we do, Jamey tell him. I think when Luke saw all that black chocolate chip ass he busted a good one! For the first time Luke Kerr was speechless! Luke couldn’t come up for air, but Kristoff should give his interview in blacktail while holding on a sista chocolate tail with his hand grabbing on it! LOL I’m just sayin!

    The foolery continues, again I love the foolery! However Jamey said Missy Reeves tries to be all Southern Fried Christian? Jamey, what’s Southern Fried Christian. Yes, I’am a northern and all that southern talk and twang drives me crazy, but I will ask. What does that mean, pls tell me? Does it mean the macaroni and cheese at the church comes with all white meat and a biscuit? LOL I’m just askin? Great podcast~

    Black Tail Magazine! *Dead*
    That was a blast from the past. Luke’s reaction reminded me of the line “even white boys got to shout” from Sir Mix-a-lot’s Baby Got Back. Then that song got stuck in my head and I couldn’t stop laughing

    Jamey slayed me with “Southern Fried Christian”. I remember when Missy had that big ass 80s hair, trying to be all country as a turnip green now!

    This podcast was hilarious!

    John McDouche had no problem kicking Natalie and baby Liam to the curb when he found out the boy was not his biologically. The man spent months sleeping with Kelly until Kelly told him to go back to Natalie.

    LMAO– Black Tail Magazine, Chik Fil-A (I’ve only heard of this place about a year or so ago…don’t laugh) and Southern Fried Christians. Only DC could put these topics together and make it hilariously entertaining!

    On the KSJ topic, he probably is thinking that, in retrospect, he should’ve spoken to the brass at Sony/CBS and then spoken out at the height of the Dru/Neil popularity on Y&R. If he had gotten together with VR and spoke collectively, it probably would’ve made a huge difference down the road. Don’t know what to say about his situation now– I guess we’ll see…
