This is so funny! I love how it shows how funny Melissa Archer is and it is so much better than her Days character. She was born to do comedy. I love the two together also. I agree with the comment about their timing together. They are funny and great together! Hope there is more to come!

Funny, contemporary story. Archer & Morris were great! Wish them great success with this project and hopefully more to come.

I echo those who are wanting an Archer/Easton pairing on their screens. One of my top favorite soap couples.

I was pleasantly surprised. I admit the thought of two chicks getting caught peeing in the alley was not my idea of good entertainment. But I had to check it out and I was laughing over and over again. I watched it several times and sent it to friends. Melissa is a natural and she and Jessica have wonderful chemistry; they play off each other welll; just like they did on OLTL. And the quality of the series was so good; I was so impressed. She has a natural comedic dynamic. I saw some of that in her as Natalie but it’s nice to see her with out all the drama. I can’t wait to see more!

It wasn’t fun or funny. I find it very distasteful. I hope they come up with a different project than this. I wish Melissa Archer well in her career, but this project is not my “cup of tea”.

Not a fab if this at all.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.
