You guys, I'm hanging in, but the recent awesomeness of Days is rapidly disappearing. What's going on? I thought the backstage changes were going to start kicking things into high gear and the show would realize its potential in time to spike good ratings and avoid cancellation. But . . . nothing much of anything is going on. Even the summer's biggest reveal is kind of happening with a whimper. I'm worried the show really is on its last legs. It's all very depressing. Not on par with, say, Darfur, or how badly the Baldwin brothers are aging, but depressing nonetheless.
Talk about depressing: Oh my god, they killed Benji!
I know he'd only been around for a little while this time, but I remember the character of Benji from when Steve and Kayla found him on their honeymoon (which I had a relative secretly tape while I was at horse camp). His murder makes sense for the story, and gave Stephen Nichols yet another opportunity to shine
but man, I need an uplifting story on this show, soon.
(I also need Stephen Nichols to cut his hair.)
Is the hair and makeup department just totally over the Colleen/Santo storyline? Because they aren't even trying anymore.
You can see the wig line and glue on her forehead! And those eyebrows. Those are scarier than that Irish cliff.
And I love that they finally realized the guy they cast as Colleen's
dad is about 20 years too young, so they just went to the local
Halloween store and got some spray-on gray.
It's as authentic as the accents!
