This won’t be one of my long, rambling what’s wrong with Days posts?  First, I’m actually pretty content with the majority of the show this week.  Nicole confided in EJ, EJ had a decent talk with Sami and I got to see him handling babies, Bo/Philip bonded, Phorgan was actually cute again for a moment, Lucas told Sami he needed some time alone, Bo told Hope that he tampered with evidence, Stax was tolerable, Date had some interesting moments…I could go on but you get the gist.  This week, I don’t need to complain.

No, this week, I’m going to compliment.  I’m complimenting whomever the woman is who does the casting.  I knew her name at one point, but now I don’t have it in my head and I’m not looking it up.  This week has been full of day players and I wanted to give them a special shout out because they’re bringing the pretty to my screen.  I will always appreciate the pretty…it’s gotten me through some dire times on this show of late.

Hello coffee man!

Hello coffee man!

First we have Evan, the barista at the Java Cafe who’s interacted with Hope and Marlena this week.  He is, in a word, gorgeous.  Hot.  Big and muscular and he smiles and is genuinely nice and interested in people.  I laughed at the idea of Marlena actually chatting up the coffee guy but when I saw him, well, I understood.  Kudos Doc, he is hot, keep him talking!  I’d like for someone to get him naked but I’m not sure who fits the bill yet.  He seems to have a crush on Nicole but that’s out for the moment.  He and Chloe would be a nice visual too…or Stephanie but we know that will never happen.  Doesn’t matter to me, but he needs to stay!

George, adorkable!

Next we had George, the French guy that Stephanie talked to about Melanie.  He’s Melanie’s ex who she used til he had no money and then she left him cold.  He was a cute, dorky dude and he had that adorable accent and I just wanted to hug him.  I don’t think we’ll get to see any of the French dudes after this initial time, but I enjoyed him just the same.  Also sets up well for a potential Melanie/Nick match, her thinking she can use him but him wearing her down and her falling for him.  Love it!

Another French dude, Michelle, the bartender guy was pretty cute too.  Maybe I’m a sucker for the accents (couldn’t tell I liked them with all my EJ love could ya?) but he was also cute to me.  I liked his flirting with Stephanie and Max’s reaction to it.  I liked Stax’s interaction with the day players actually.  Besides them being pretty, they were decent.  That’s about all I could ask for, right?  Anyway, he was tallish and blond and had the accent.  It all worked for me.

Then there was Les, who assumed Max was Melanie’s boyfriend and was trying to shake him down for his missing money or something.  I missed a part of the convo, but I watched the whole thing because he, too, was hot.  I am not sure about his minions, I wasn’t paying enough attention, but I don’t think they were fugly either.

So as to give the girls a moment of attention, Melanie is very pretty also and I like her so far, of course we need time to judge and she’s certainly not going away.  Max’s ex was also pretty and cool.  I just had to give some appreciation to the visual joy that Days has been all week.  And I didn’t even rhapsodize on EJ in his blue shirt, see, showing some restraint.  Thanks casting director!  You’re one crew member that needs to stay forever!

Ok, I had to include it, he is beautiful.
