well, my usual rant is primarily Dannifer, and the way Jennifer has been dumbed down and reduced to behaving like a person who doesn't know how to command her life and needs to be told by everyone what is best for her. Her love thing with Daniel is really a mess. Breakup- being together- breakup...whatever!
I wish that Jennifer goes back to journalism and gets herself together without Daniel.
Another rant is the recent tumor scare storyline with Chad. Depressing. Plus the triangle with Abigail and Cameron is super ridiculous, as Chad and Abigail have such great chemistry and they could have built a lovely romantic story with them, that is something that a summer soap thing would be great!!! Instead she is smooching with Cameron, what is going on here- ridiculous and so disappointing.
Kristen and Eric storyline was a bad bad mistake. And disgusting. It killed my interest in Kristen,... before that her s'l with Brady was going somewhere... and it could have been way more interesting and they could have thought about some other angst- also, the thing with her and Marlena is now over- and boring actually.
I am also not pleased at all that they still put Lucas on now and again, where he could and should have a storyline and love interest.
Love him and Samantha and the friendship that has resulted out of their relationship. Also, Jennifer and him were great sister-brother... and they should actually make them working together or something. Jennifer needs a family member that is not just coming around to tell her she should be with Daniel.
Nicole bores me so much... now she is someone that goes around Salem and resolves their lives. They put her into a angel kind of a category- terrible! She is more fun scheming and doing the dirty!
Ok, enough of the ranting. Seems like there is more to rant about than rave.
Of course, as an Ejami fan- I am not really objective- LOL. Love them, and it is interesting what both Alison and James said in the interview on the couch- they are the only ones who really have a proper relationship. Ah, they just shine together. They are an example how couples should be written,imo. I don't mind the Bernardi storyline, as it is a different kind of angst for them, and realistic one- it's just that the way they constructed the shooting, and the missing razor, and that SPD is not really doing any proper investigation, at least we don't see it. They should have read some Agatha Christie novels and then maybe get a clue how a story is done. LOL- who would be Miss |Marple to find the razor and tell us how it disappeared. lol...
Love Justin. He is one character that is in the making and if they do it right, he would very interesting. Also, I would divorce him and Adrienne and put Kayla his way!!! Drama!!!
Love Will and Sonny- they are just great. Sonny in particular. Both characters are written very well...
I love the way they have involved a lot of characters in a story line- like the one with Will-gabi-Nick baby drama.
That kind of thing needs to continue. And actually also Samantha's shooting involves a lot of characters, but they also need to start showing how each character is actually involved, so at least the audience sees it and then rant or rave and be schocked etc... bring in the suspense,imo, but not the Eric-Kristen kind of a thing!
I have not included JJ, Theresa - the mischiefs of Salem- as they are not particulary rant-or raving thing for me at the moment... they will probably show how badly JJ and the rest will end up- and so they should!!! I wonder how tough will jennifer be then! Just hope they don't have Daniel and Jennifer in a I told-you-so moment, and he gets all the glory!
Love Nick as a villain!! ~)
I find it interesting how marvelous they can write for Justin, EJ, Samantha, Chad and they are really progressing- and then others like Jennifer, for example who simply are out of character and then one is left in schock like this 8) /
Good thread as there probably will be more things in future to rant and rave about.
