Although I originally tuned in to see Justin Hartley, (secretly hoping the show would bomb, so he would return to The Young and the Restless), I am fully vested for the long run in this phenomenal series. The lead actors are doing a great job with the fantastic story line they have been given. Kudos also to Gerald McRaney. I always enjoy his recurring appearances. Good for you, NBC! You’ve got a winner!

Absolutely, the casting, writing, directing, etc., etc., etc.,-all exceptional choices! It’s my favorite new show and I look forward to watching it and escaping for an hour; although, I usually cry from the first scene all the way through. It’s just so touching and it has its comedic points, as well.

This is great news. Last night’s episode was amazing. Gerald McRaney turned in a great performance. How great was it to see the beautiful Susan Blakely last night? Mandy and Milo need to submit their performances for the next Emmy Awards.

Unfortunately most of the Primetime Emmy Awards are going to cable shows or netflix shows these days, rarely has a network drama or comedy even make the nominations these days—-sigh

Of course it’s happy news. GH used to be this heart warming and emotionally intelligent at one time, pre-Guza. Glad I have a show geared toward me.

hi Jenny..
You ”thought” wrong..
Only certain characters that were created for be murdering mobsters are expected to deliver their dark side, not the whole of all the characters..

DAYS Camila Banus Talks Stabi’s Heartbreaking Love Story; Matthew Ashford Melissa Reeves Chat On JnJ Reunion On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
