Tony DiMera: The Original DiMera Dark Prince

Pardon me while I geek out for a moment.

You may or may not remember all the hype when Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was about to come out in theatres.  A lot of the promotional merchandise centred on Darth Maul – the big baddie with the dual-bladed light sabre (which looked positively nerdgasmic).  All the trailers showcased the majestic martial artistry of Scottish stuntman Ray Park, the man behind all that red and black make-up.  We (well…I) couldn’t wait until our heroes came face-to-face with Darth Maul.  It was going to be epic.

Mike Horton: That other male doctor that didn't sleep with all his patients.

With rumours floating around out there that Carrie and Austin might be the next announced old-schoolers set to return to Salem, I started thinking about other characters who might get brought back.  Then I thought, "Nuts to the ratings, endgame pairings, and so-called legacy characters.  Who do I want back?"

So in between rants and raves, I thought I'd also do a couple of short entries to talk about several characters I wouldn't mind seeing back in Salem.

After groaning about what a colossol error I think bringing a couple that never really transitioned well into adulthood back to the show is, I was reminded of how much I miss Roark Critchlow's incarnation of Mike Horton.

Daytime Bloodbath Pt. I

So my poor little laptop contracted some sort of computer crotch-rot seconds before the most exciting stuff to happen to Days since Cassie Brady fell out of a piƱata exploded.  I’m still in the process of getting my system back up to speed, which is why it’s taken me so damn long to update, and also why I wasn’t able to create any sort of accompanying, Days-related graphic for you.

Here, instead, is a picture of Sean Connery from the movie Zardoz.
