Watched a couple of clips from 'Days of Our Lives' ( thank you ckll
! ) and I'm reminded why I'm not really into daytime soaps. Nothing to do with Jensen, he was adorable
, but it's the type of show itself, and I'm not talking about DOOL specifically but soap operas in general.
It's the way they talk, so stilted and so -- structured, and the studioish-ness of everything. And now I realize what some of Shymalan's movies remind me of - daytime soaps! But I guess that's what defined soap operas. And why on earth are they called "soaps" in the first place? Any idea?
But having said that, I did watch and enjoy 'The Bold and the Beautiful', way back when I was a student and still have the time to watch daytime programmes, and that's about the only soap that I followed faithfully. Mainly because of Caroline and Thorne, LOVE those two. I was devastated when they killed off Caroline, and changed the actor who played Thorne. I lost interest after that. Caught a couple of episodes here and there recently, and the only people that I recognized are Brooke and Ridge and omg they have changed
! All those wrinkles and the grey hairs ( though Stephanie has remained unremarkably unchanged ) and in a way I'm glad that Caroline and Thorne are no longer around.
Anyway, back to DOOL. Heard Eric Brady saying the name "Sami" and it sounded very different from the way he said "Sammy". Dean mostly called Sam "Sammy" when he's panicking, or when he's teasing him. Eric's "Sami" was much softer sounding than "Sammy", and Eric's voice is sweeter than Dean's ( of course, Jensen was 10 years younger back then ) which is deeper and more gravelly and much, much sexier!
Eric drove much the same way as Dean, though. The way he glanced at the sideway mirror, the way he looked at his sister sitting beside him, not much different from the way Dean looked at Sam. No Metalicca blasting from the radio then, of course.
I don't have pics of Eric driving, but I do have pics of them sleeping ...( Eric, Dean sleeping )
