About the author

Anthony D. Langford

I watch a lot of television, probably too much. But can you really watch too much TV? I've yet to find out. Anyway, I especially love TV when they give us positive portrayals of gays, something that has gotten better but we're still fighting for. I've written about gays in television for many years first at the much missed After Elton, then New Now Next and now at TV Source. It's kind of a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with you.

    People seem pretty pissed off about this cheating storyline with Aaron and Robert. But what did they expect? Robert was bound to cheat. Someone even stopped uploading their clips on youtube because of this storyline. I guess I’m not able to see the appeal of this utterly dull romance between the two of them. The show simply can’t manage to make them interesting without making their storylines as dark as possible.

    Days of our lives continues to be horrendous. It seems like it just gets worse with each writer switch. Let’s hope the next one actually improves it. I can’t believe that it was renewed, to be honest. I can’t even watch the show anymore, even the Paul/Sonny clips.

    I looked up how Aaron was able to appeal when that first came up. Apparently, they have a different process for appealing a guilty verdict (which would have had Aaron out of prison immediately after the not-guilty verdict) and appealing the length of a sentence (which is why he’s getting out after only six weeks– three months with a day off for every day served). They were appealing because their lawyer was expecting only a few months and the (first?) judge threw the book at him.

  • Jeff S

    Ben and Johnny have much better on-screen chemistry than I anticipated, probably more noticeable because they were being unusually lighthearted and…well…normal for guys their age. It was a refreshing development on a show that tends to be downbeat much of the time. I like that they didn’t immediately decide they are love’s young dream even though it’s likely the show will have them grow closer and become a couple. We need to see more of this Johnny away from his family and the pub.

    I also like that Tyler has a story outside of his relationship with Iolo. It’s completely like the Tyler we met early on to use Ffion to essentially write his application for this new position. Now that he’s settled into the community and got his man, it’s logical that some of his bad-boy tendencies would resurface. As long we don’t learn he murdered someone in the past or was sexually abused or fathered a child, I’m pretty open to whatever stories the show wants to give him.

    David Ames has such a sad puppy face. It is hard to watch him be an unbelievably stupid diptwad when it comes to Syed 2.0. I hope Sosia pushes the bastard down an incinerator chute, rescuing Dom and getting him into a good forever home.
