Diva Picks - 12/21 to 12/25
WINNERS OF THE WEEK: Stefano and Kate. These two are truly a supercouple and power couple. If the kiss this week is any indication, they’re going to be together for a while.
LOSER OF THE WEEK: Roman Brady. Can’t he hit on anyone else besides an ex-wife?
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Bo and Carly’s argument, which ultimately leads to her confession that she loves him. For me, there was undeniable chemistry between the two of them throughout, a pleasant relief from the monotonous BOPE arguments. However, I do think DAYS is deliberately writing the story to slant it in this direction, as Hope is being horribly miswritten – and I’m one of the first ones to say so. But seeing a scene with true drama and romance is a nice change of pace these days. craving drama and romance with vet actors who have real chemistry is rejoicing at a good scene.
PERFORMER OF THE WEEK: Leann Hunley. She is making Anna sympathetic, evil and humorous all at the same time. So glad that she’s back!
ZINGER OF THE WEEK: Kate: “Oh my God. I have done so much for Lucas. I mean I know I’ve meddled a little bit, but it was always with love.” Stefano: “And arsenic.”
DAYS ON THE CHEAP: 1) You didn’t really think Philip would take Melanie to an island to propose to her, did you? DAYS can’t even afford a painted backdrop of the ocean, much less do anything like an out-of-town location shoot! Is it just me…or did it seem like they were back at the fleabag motel again with a few Xmas decorations thrown around? 2) I never thought I’d be reminiscent for the days of LAST BLAST, but jeez. No extras, no music, not even a tacky disco ball. 3) DAYS can’t afford to keep Thaao Penghlis around, so now Leann Hunley has to do scenes with his picture. 4) The wardrobe department is so broke that Kristian Alfonso had to scrounge around to wear Arleen Sorkin’s old hats and Gloria Loring’s old nightclub costumes from the 80s (see Xmas Eve episode).
