Mike, Robin? Can We Talk?
About how your kid is an asshole?
For me, Days of Our Lives' Mike Horton is forever and always Michael T. Weiss. He was Mike number, I don't know, 27? And he wasn't the last, but he was Mike when I started watching so he's Mike Horton. I had a bit of a crush on him. And yes, I'm aware of the mullet, and the terrible shirts and cheesy ties, and the unfortunate Three Stooges-esque sense of humor. But Mike was adorable! And charming. And a smart doctor. And a good big brother. And a fun boyfriend. I was in junior high, and he was dreamy. Shut up, you know you thought so too. (Also, he dated April, played by Lisa Howard, and I so coveted her hair. I tried to give myself her layered cut. That...did not go well.)
Anyway, he and Dr. Robin Jacobs, another smart, charming doctor, had a kid. Named Jeremy. He was just adorable. Fast-forward 17 or so years. This kid has reappeared and, how can I put this politely? He's a total dick. Are we supposed to believe Robin, and part of the time Mike, raised this sleazy idiot? After making a "charming" debut as Stephanie's oversexed boyfriend who runs some shady airline that flies only the Salem-Vegas route (?!?!?!), today he showed up half naked and oily (which I'm pretty sure I was supposed to think was hot) and tried to force himself on Chelsea. Who he's like an inch away from being related to (Chelsea's mom Billie's half-brother Lucas is Mike's half-brother too, right?). Ew. And from the preview it looks like he forcibly kisses her tomorrow. Great. If the Days writers are going to start copying other soaps, could they not choose GH? I think I'd even rather they go with Passions and have witches and magical little people roaming about.
