Funniest podcast to date! Carolyn is so witty! Can’t wait to see her appear on True Blood tomorrow!

I enjoyed James Scott. He is such a gratious person to have admitted he was disappointed in not receiving a pre-Emmy nom, and to further praise the work of the other actors who did get nominated. I am hoping that James will indeed get an Emmy in the future. He is a phenominal actor. James is the leading male actor on Days, and I faithfully tune in when he is on. I am an EJami fan. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Ohio, and he was not above chatting with me for about 30 minutes. Mr. Fairman thanks… Read more »

great podcast! I love that James called in. His opinions about the show are always thought-provoking and interesting. I wish he had more of a role behind the scenes; they could use his input.
I don’t blame Carolyn on James’ voice. It is VERY sexy.

What a great podcast! Michael, Carolyn…I love you both. I’m sorry I don’t know Dillon’s work but it was nice to meet him as well. Jen Lilley has done a fabulous job as Maxie (tho, unfortunately, I can’t bring myself to watch GH at the moment due to the dead baby s/l). James Scott and Ali Sweeney are THE reason I watch DAYS. James gave me the impression he was a bit disappointed that the “grief sex” was the scene nominated for the Emmy but, IMHO, that scene was about SO much more than sex. Sami instinctively sought out EJ… Read more »

Dillon seems like a “nice” guy , but has so little to add, and is so soap-uninformed, a lot of this conversation was a lot about nothing. (What happened to Prospect Park, guys?)

Very nice podcast, Michael! My favorite part was hearing from James Scott, because he always has such interesting and intelligent insights, and anything he says sounds 10 times better in that gorgeous accent!

What a joy to listen to James Scott being a true professional. Never in the whole interview did he give away any “spoiler” etc. This shows a true, committed acting professional. He wants to keep the people viewing. In addition to being a truly dynamic actor! I will be honest he and Alison Sweeney are the real reasons why I have returned to watching DOOL because there is something there with them when ALLOWED to be in a scene. IMHO of DOOL was smart they would FINALLY write a story for Ej and Sami ( look at 50 Shades of… Read more »

Wish you would have asked James about Renee Jones or even how he would feel if Eileen Davidson came back as his mom, but overall, really good podcast. Please don’t leave these off to once every 6-9 months! They’re really enjoyable!

Thank you Michael for another wonderful great James Scott interview! It’s always a pleasure to hear from him and his POV on DAYS and what he thinks of the show and his character! I am really looking forward to his upcoming storyline with Sami. They are just amazing together!

Michael once again you have delivered a great interview with James Scott. I so agree w/CH that just the sound of James’ voice is worth a listen. It was nice that James did not spoil what is coming up. Hopefully Tomlin/Whitesell & NBC have a clear vision of what will bring DOOL out of the doldrums in which it presently resides. I hope that vision includes EJ becoming his own man, out of Stefano’s expectations. I still wait for Days to give EJami a real story that involves only EJ & Sami. Also a big thanks to you for sharing… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Nearly 24 hours, after beloved TV star Marla Gibbs, almost passed out during her induction ceremony to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, comes more news.  Now, Gibbs is set to appear on NBC’s Days of our Lives.

According to SOD, Gibbs will play the mother to Jackée Harry’s, Paulina.  Look for her first appearance in the role of Olivia Price on August 17th.

The former star of The Jeffersons, now 90-years-old, was giving her speech in Hollywood yesterday when suddenly she stopped and began to appear to faint.  Gibbs’ son helped get her into as chair and some water, so she could recover.

Later after she resumed her speech, Marla told ABC’s George Pennacchio on the Walk of Fame honor: “I never thought it would happen, but here it is.  I just got overwhelmed for a minute. I haven’t been excited until this moment!”

Watch a segment from ABC7 on Marla’s Hollywood Walk of Fame induction below.  Then let us knowl what you think of Gibbs coming to DAYS via the comment section,
