    Does anyone else subscribe to the Days TiVoCast? They're pretty bad. The latest one wasn't awful; I forget the subject matter though.

    2 episodes ago they interviewed a security guard outside of the studio. On one hand I guess I could say it could have been an interesting and unique look behind-the-scenes of the show. Instead, it was an interview with a security guard. Hardly riveting stuff.

    The TiVocasts have been pathetic. Then again, lately Days has been pathetic. Surprise, surprise, John's not dead.
    And Colleen's not dead. And John is Colleen's son.
    Not Tony's half brother, and not Lawrence Alamain's cousin or brother or whatever, and not Roman Brady back from the dead. What else has he been?

    Why would the people working for CB DiMera think that Belle and Claire are safer with them? And if that's true, why are they acting like thugs and not just telling them what's going on and offering to put them in hiding?

    I think this show has been on the air too long. They just don't know what to do with it anymore. But it's like a watching a trainwreck - you can't look away, you just keep watching!

    So how many plane crashes have they had on the show with the main characters involved?

    Apparently not enough...

    I started watching DOOL in junior high school and stuck with it until I was just out of college. Other than watching just one day of it every once in a while, I just recently started watching it again on a regular basis and have some questions...

    1) When and how did Lucas Roberts become Lucas Horton. I could almost undertand if he changed his name to Brady, but Horton?

    2) How long have Tony and Anna been back in Salem? I knew that Pehnglis (sp) was back at one time, but just saw Anna for the first time the other day

    3) What happened to Jack and Jennifer? I knew they were back for some time, but now they are gone again.

    4) How did Chelsea come into the picture? I know Bo and Billie were married, but don't remember them having a daughter.

    Some things (and people) I'd forgotten over the years...

    Max and Frankie
    Lexie being Stefano's daughter
    Bo being Victor's son (yeah, I know...but like I said, it's been awhile)

    And I always get a kick out of how quickly the kids grow up....Shawn Douglas, Max, Belle...they were all kids the last time I watched it on a regular basis.

    Kate had an affair with Bill Horton who is Lucas' father. Due to his estrangement to his mother (due to her inability to quit scheming against Sami), he goes by Horton.

    That gets complicated. Pehngalis has been back for awhile but it was revealed that for years he was Andre pretending to be Tony. Since the 80's when Tony was "good", the real Tony was held on an island. They discovered this and rescued him over the summer. Phengalis then resumed playing "good Tony" and Andre died. At that time it was revealed that Anna had been living in Salem all this time and now she's back. She's barely a minor character; she has basically no story. Days loves to completely waste their classic star power.

    They're running the London (or someplace in Europe, I forget where) branch of the Spectator. I can't remember where Abby is... they aged her to be a part of the young teen stories (w/ Chelsea) but they wrote her out. She's either away at college or in Europe or somewhere.

    In the storyline when Hope returned as Swamp Girl (in Aremid), Billie miscarried her daughter. Well, Stefano actually kidnapped the child who was not dead. After some time in Europe or somewhere she ended up with a foster family in Salem, naturally. It was Chelsea. Bo & Billie found this out. Chelsea, by accident, ran over and killed Bo & Hope's toddler Zack (the one switched at birth with Abe & Lexie's) but now all is forgiven.

    Actually, it was Greta Von Amberg who was Swamp Girl, not Hope.
    Hope was busy avoiding Franco Kelly.

    Thanks!

    The wierd thing is that I vaguely remember bits and pieces of some of what you've just told me....like the whole swamp thing (in Louisiana, right?).

    And I still can't stand John. Never have been able to. His facial expressions and sneers are horrible. I've been "listening" to the show more than watching it. While I'm at work I use my sports radio, which gets TV stations. I can tolerate listening to the John storyline, but when I'm at home watching it, I have to fast forward through his parts.

    Gasp! You don't like...the eyebrow?

    (I haven't seen "DOOL" in almost three years now, since I stopped closed-captioning it, but I still keep up with this thread just to see if anything ridiculous is happening.)

    TV Guide has some spoilers about some others exiting the show, in addition to Grandpa Shawn who didn't make it in the place crash recently.

    They're reporting that Belle, Shawn, Adrienne and Billie are all being written off.

    Didn't those two depart very recently?

    I know Billie got that job with Victor's security firm in London. And I thought that Adrienne went back to be with Justin in Kuwait or somewhere like that.

    Any chance one of you could provide a quick recap/summary of what's gone on? I've not seen the show in a few weeks, and am so curious... plane crash? folks are leaving? What's up?!?!

    Thanks!

    With Grandpa Shawn gone, you just know that
    Caroline and Victor are going to wind up together.

    I'm not surprised that
    Belle and Shawn are being written off.
    IMHO, they haven't known what to do with those characters for a while. Ever since they changed actors, the parts haven't worked, at least for me. I couldn't feel any chemistry between them, and they just weren't believable in the parts.

    Who's the mysterious woman that Steve is seeing?

    When did we first see her and do we know who she is, if Steve knows who she is? Do we know why Steve is upset about her presence?

    I'm not sure but could she be the woman Steve was involved with as "Nick Stockton" just before Kayla restored his memory?

    If she is, it's a different actress than the one who played her before. Then again, he was Nick Stockton for a long time, so he could have been involved with many women during that time, not just the one they showed when they first brought the character back.

    So can someone explain to me why John suddenly has full access to Stefano's house and business records?

    Poor writing? Or did I miss a throw-away line about him legally obtaining this access?

    Poor writing. He decided he wanted to live in the mansion and just went there. He must have found the papers in the house. Then again, I'm two episodes behind, so he might have gotten hold of the lawyers at some point that I haven't seen yet.
