    NO ONE CARES!!!!!!!!!!
    YES… I hope theo gets shot and killed along with all the rest of the shitty younger set,

    Please don’t speak for me, damien. I care. We all have opinions. So, do you wish Theo to be shot and killed because he’s black or because he’s autistic?

    My opinion is the actor is doing a fine job as Theo. That’s not bad acting, it’s a realistic portrayal of an autistic teen on the higher end of the spectrum.

    While watching Kyler, I was thinking how hard it must be to play someone with autism. I think he is doing a good job too.

    I don’t necessarily love the teen stories and certainly don’t care for Vivian who plays Ciara. They have needed to recast that role for quite a while.

    damien replied

    why would you assume i m referring to his condition or his skin colour?!…
    did i allude to any of that in my post or before you got all pissy and paranoid did you read the rest of my post about the younger set as a whole?!
    i dont judge anyone about the way they were born but it sounds like you re doing a fine job doing the judging… im simply airing my frustrations about the direction a show i truly love going down the drain …and if im speaking on any ones behalf its the almost million viewers who have tuned out, mr forever days

    The poor actress, she is in way over her head. TPTB should send the entire teen scene off-air. None of them seem to have the experience to carry such emotional storylines. They really should be seen and not heard, and not on every day. They are more filler-IMO. None of the storylines are interesting. Blind leading the blind-in writing, it seems.

    Ted Martin replied

    She is fine in short scenes telling her mom things like “I am worried about Theo” but her acting range isn’t strong enough to hold her own storyline together. For the time being, they should relegate the character to a small supporting role around her mom and relatives. I do not wish to be unkind, so I will say that the young actress who currently portrays Ciarra just simply needs more seasoning.

    This story is embarrassingly bad even for Days which has been scraping the bottom of the creative barrel for 18 months now. Dena is partial to Theo character because of her personal circumstances, but the actor, along with those playing Joey, Claire and Ciara are so poor that it makes a bad story so much worse. And I feel for these young folks who are so miscast and in over their heads, and yes, even the actress who plays Claire is super green and only stands out as acceptable because she’s placed with non-actors in the other teen roles. But overall, the story is beyond laughable. They went from Griffith’s dark, suicidal depression stories to Higley’s scooby doo cartoons. Aye. And how are these executives still collecting salaries: Meng and Alaar are completely incompetent. But we know the Trump of soaps at the top of the ticket is ultimately responsible: Corday. As Betty and Ted spin…

    Agreed, Tony, albeit I love Theo. He stands out as the flower amongst the weeds. He is an exceptional young actor with an unfortunate role. I can’t even follow these storylines, any longer. Sad!!!!
    I wish TPTB would make up their minds about Aiden. On one hand, he was killed and buried. Then, it turns out it was actually a look-alike imposter who was the dead bad guy, thanks to Andre??
    The real Aiden had been held prisoner…..so, he comes back with good intentions, or so it seemed. But, lo and behold, as soon as Hope ( who belongs in jail for murder, with Rafe, as an accomplice after the fact) rejects him, Aiden turns evil; subtly blackmailing her to either submit, or else.
    The look on Hope’s face; the wide-eyed stupefied stare, was just that; stupid. Yeah, she looked really scared……
    I ask, why turn a completely nice guy to Dr. Jekyll with a Mr. Hyde complex? So to throw Hope and Rafe in each other’s arms?
    Maybe Theo will shoot Hope just because. LOL.

    Celia, my dear…on today’s DOOL episode, the moment that Rafe and Hope (together) appeared on my TV screen, I IMMEDIATELY pressed the Mute button on my remote control. Yep. Hey…I am all for May/December romances, but, Rafe/Hope (for me) are a TOTAL SNOOZE-FEST!!!!! And don’t get me started on Aiden #1/Aiden #2…LOL!!!!! Make. It. Stop.

    Have a good night, my friend.

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I do agree but i still feel the escapees picked up a bit…instead of aging the children which meant more story.which is wasted on these poorly acting teen set..Days should had concentrated more on the adults and young set it already had like JJ, Paige, Bev and Rory who were ten times more interesting and can act…and had Theo been 13 or 14 avenging his father’s shooting would had been controversial but more riveting and interesting!!!

    I love the storyline and Theo is a teen standout as is Claire. Joey has made great strides too. Ciara should be recast.

    Claire is growing on me. Ciara should just not open her mouth, period. Joey isn’t doing it for me either, 4ever, my friend of friends. LOL.
    But, we agree on Theo. He is the only sorased teen I really, really love…have since day one. He’s good looking, and such a talent.

    I thought of a new name for VJ (Ciara), Celia…Abercrombie Zombie, LOL!

    Llanviewer717 replied

    I have to agree with you 4everDays about two of the actors. The young man playing Theo and the young woman playing Claire are doing good work. Both of them are alert and present in their scenes and playing their characters. I really enjoy both of them. The rest of the teens can go at anytime.

    It would be so nice if They got rid of that whole younger set.. This “young” storyline sucks. The girl who plays Ciara is the worst actress on the show. Unbearable to watch.

    Oh no. Bad plot twist in a frustrating storyline. Also if days allows hope to get back with Aidan to stay out of jail, this show will be yoadt

    Wow, I can’t believe the nasty comments. I just hope the actors aren’t reading this. I know Damien, Mo, Jimh, and Tony that all of you are so perfect. It must be so hard to be all of you….

    Celia replied

    We are here to comment, Mark. Good or bad….
    Perfection has nothing to do with it. Have you even taken an English Lit class? The point is ……constructive criticism. I do not ignore the elephant in the room.
    I remember you….I remember the personal remarks to me. So, do not call the kettle black. Not fair.

    Mark replied

    I think you have the wrong Mark. I very rarely comment on this site and I have never commented on anything you have said. On that note I just feel there is always so much negativity. The younger actors are trying. Remember Sami was green in the beginning too. BTW, yes I have taken an English Literature class. LOL

    Celia replied

    @Mark.
    Hi, Mark,
    If I have mistaken you for another Mark, I do, wholeheartedly apologize. Perhaps it was the Mark who spells his name with a diminuative “m”. This was back in April, where his comments had been very scathing. So, please accept my sincere regrets. A very inane April Fool’s kind of joke? Yet, very insulting.
    As far as the English class bit, I was trying to be facetious. But, sadly, my stupid jokes/sarcasm never take root. LOL. Forgive me? I forgot to insert the usual ‘ LOL’. Double LOL.
    Nevertheless, I still think, we have the right to express our opinions; likes and dislikes, about actors, plots and substance of a show.
    It is because I love the show that I, and others, vehemently object to the ‘deflated’ storylines DOOL is offering, for a loooong while now.
    I was a tot when Alison Sweeney joined the cast, Mark…LOL. But, one cannot compare the stories of back then, to the stories now. I remember the show, as in a dream, watching with my Gran.
    Yes, Alison was young, but the stories built her character, as everyone else’s. There is no MEAT on any of the stories. Everything is soooo convoluted…I cannot make heads or tails about any of them….unravel any of the plots or get invested in any of these kids. Only Theo deserves any kind of ‘clamor’, or accolades.
    I do not want ANY of the remaining shows to fail. These soaps are part od our lives. It would be the tragic end of an era.
    Later.

    i’m not disappointed

    for the first time duo out the gate …. Ryan Quan and Dena Higley

    come on… it’s got to start somewhere… and end

    I do not think this is dark… I LIKE ALL 3 of the guys acting skill

    I like the dynamic difference these three bring

    at the very least… we are getting the whole cast involved

    Kyler Pettis as Theo

    Lexie’ son…. dang it

    of the 4 SORAS teens… Kyler is the more comfortable one… in front of the camera and in all his relationships… even if he is at times shy…. which Kyler pulls off

    endearingly… gawd… he’s Abe and Lexie son

    it’s a sweet thing he’s got going with Claire

    when the lights went out in Salem… and Theo was with Arianna and Thomas

    Theo got caught up in the “excitement” and his REEL surprised me… “no no, Theo” Keep it together

    which was a surprising turn for me… I so wanted Lexie spirit to show up

    Kyler Pettis gets to REEL

    Abe and Chad will be right by his side

    DAYS tries to be exciting but it’s not. It’s campy, wimpy in it’s story telling and featuring the worst part of the cast. The teen actors are AWFUL. How much do people have to say it before the powers that be listen. The new head writing team is no different than the last. The stories are mired in mediocrity. Three criminals holding a whole town hostage with each of them pretending to be in disguise. They aren’t in disguise. The kindergarten class at Salem Academy could identify them. Here is what needs to happen: Marlena is possessed once again and throws each of the 3 villains into the fiery pit of hell. For good measure she throws in Patch because he looks like a cheap porn actor stuck on an 80′s film set. Deimos discovers that he isn’t a Kiriakis but rather he is John’s long lost father. Brain damage caused Deimos to think he was younger than he actually is. Hope gets a little angry again and knocks off Aidan and Phillip – because he is just annoying. Nicole is lying in bed and cries out “Oh Daniel I wish you were here” and the camera flashes to Daniel in the shower, and he says, “I am here Nicole, you must have been having some crazy nightmare.” Sonny is sitting in Paul’s bed after a crazy night together. The doorbell rings and it’s Will. Will tells Paul that he isn’t John’s son after all but rather Sonny’s brother and that they have just been incestuous together. Sonny has a nervous breakdown but after a few months of therapy realizes that he still loves Will. Rafe leaves town to become a cowboy in Montana. Gaby becomes a model and appears on Project Runway. Kayla decides she isn’t a doctor any more and becomes an escort and her first client is Abe. Caroline finally kicks the bucket making her last bucket of the chowder and leaves her recipe to Maggie, in her will, as an apology for all the ways she made her feel inferior with Victor. Andre decides to give up being a bad guy and finally admits that he really wants to audition for RuPaul’s Drag Race. RuPaul makes a guest appearance. Roman and Kate get back together but not before Kate has a summer fling with John Travolta. When DAYS finally gets their act together and follows my story line suggestions I may start watching again. But right now it’s painful to watch even for ten minutes during it’s air time.

    Hey Mateo…to me, your ideas make W-A-Y MORE SENSE than the current (G-A-G!!!!!!!!!!) DOOL writing!!!!! Dude…oh, how I WISH you were one of the DOOL writers!!!!! TOTALLY!!!!!

    Have a good one, dude.

    Ted Martin replied

    HEY if they would follow these suggestions I would gladly not complain anymore. But I cannot take Ciarra’s incessant whining nor Claire groaning about her singing career even though her voice sounds like air escaping from a party balloon.
    I think they need a Transgender character on the show and her name could be Kate Lynn Jenkins but she used to be a famous athlete. It turns out that she (when he was a he) was involved with Paul (the once famous pro ball player) and when Sonny finds out about this, he goes crazy and tries to commit suicide – but he is stopped by a mysterious stranger who turns out to be the reincarnation of Will!
    But instead…..we have….(yawn) Nicole telling Deimos that she knows he is disappointed in not being the father of Chloe’s baby…..(yawn)….ZZZZZ……

    Mateo…where Caroline is concerned, I’ll put it like this: If Caroline were to be killed off, oh, say, ‘tomorrow’ (or whenever), it wouldn’t exactly sadden me. Sorry, but, to me, NOTHING about Caroline makes sense ANYMORE!!!!! NONE!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Caroline’s time IS UP!!!!!

    Just saying……….

    Take care, dude.

    Ciara Alice Brady.

    Who’s played Ciara Alice Brady over the years?
    Vivian Jovanni (October 30, 2015 – present)
    Lauren Boles (2008 – September 30, 2015)
    Dakoda and Danica Hobbs (2007 – 2008)

    It’s pretty clear and obvious…. the recast SORAS Teen… played by Vivian Jovanni has to go. unfortunately

    she’s been given a year to parlay something …. ANY thing

    Ryan Quan and Dena Higley… should right the wrong.. and simply bring back Lauren Boles

    this would bring Kristian Alfonso ; ALIVE

    RETURN the SORAS Chase… for his father Aiden

    Wallah two families that belong together

    forget the rape…. I truly think by bringing back Lauren Boles… this will right ALOT

    Do you mean to tell me the poor, unfortunate young woman who is trying, unsuccessfully, to play Ciara has been doing so for year????????????? Clearly, TPTB at Days are just as asleep as she is when she’s doing her scenes. We know they have no respect for their audience. They also have no respect for their show.

    Ted Martin replied

    Who’s niece IS this actress anyway? The producer’s? I think they just need to cut her scenes way down, just have her telling Hope that she wants to go up to her room and study for a while, or scenes like that. Give her very little screen time. She is fine in quick supportive scenes but really she can’t be the center of attention, the show is bad enough as it is.

    Llanviewer717…AGREED!!!!! Oh…as far as I’m concerned, TIIC at DOOL have NO RESPECT for ANYONE ELSE…PERIOD!!!!!

    I know I have expressed my opinion before, but this ‘villain’ storyline bringing down the town is just not what I want to watch on Days. The actors are all trying and doing the best they can with the material, so no criticism of them just not the type of storyline I want to see on Days. Just expressing my opinion and vote for the record. It seems I am not a lone in this, but if others like it, and ratings are up, I can respect that. I suppose even though it is actually sad, it could be viewed as humorous how it is done (so bad that it is good), so may be it could be funny to watch even though for me I put it on for a few minutes and have had enough. With that said, I always wish Days the best, love the cast, and give the writers credit for their hard work I am just more interested in storylines around relationships, and contemporary human drama, not revenge, mean, ugly, dark storylines. Look for soaps for light romantic escape, etc. Enough dark, ugly, meaness on the news.

    Just want to add to my last comment. I like Theo, and glad that he will be a hero, but just not into this type of storyline or any shooting, violence, etc. on soaps or TV for that matter. Would be glad and love to have seen Theo as a hero in another capacity.

    4 ever Days, MO, Celia , and everyone who thinks Theo’s character is doing a wonderful job, I totally agree. He is the best of the teens on the show. I love this young man; perhaps, the show can find some other teens to support Theo’s great work.

  17. Rose says:

    I’ll admit it. I don’t watch Days. However I note that it has it’s loyal viewers commenting on MF. So I have been trying to see the appeal. But when I see a header to this page about guns and killing, or suicides in the past, it’s not my idea of another soap I would add for my “escape” in the afternoon. Already too much crime and killing on GH, and the real world news.
