Funny and Unfunny
You guys, I think I'm becoming a Philip fan. It's only taken, you know, over a decade, but I finally like him. It was this scene that did it:
Kate: Oh, my god. Oh, excuse me, do you happen to know the couple that's in this suite?
Hotel Man: Oh, late 20s or so. Average sort of guy with a hot blonde.
Philip: That's them.
Kate: He's not average.
Hilarious! And I think it was actually meant to be hilarious, which made it a ray of light in the sea of unintentional hilarity that is Days of Our Lives. Stephanie's outfit? Unintentional funny.
Like Evil But Twinless recently said: A recast isn't going to fix what's wrong with Steve and Kayla's storyline. The character of Stephanie is just poorly written, it has nothing to do with who is playing her. So this version of Stephanie sleeps with thugs and gets tattoos. On one level, it's an obvious step up from mooning over your uncle, but on the other...um, there's no way for me to finish that sentence. So, uh, congratulations for keeping it out of the family? I guess? Sami tackling EJ to give him the Kiss of Death was so unfunny that it swerved back into the land of funny before rapidly becoming unfunny again.
Every time I think about it, I laugh, but then the laughter turns to tears...
