“Days of our Lives” Week of 23-25, 2015 Screencaps ….. The Happy Colonial Exploitation Day Edition
November 26, 2015
I’m very behind on the “daily” screencaps for the past four episodes. My apologies. Been feeling a bit down and took a bit of a break, and considering how utterly depressing DAYS OF OUR LIVES has been in what is supposed to have been an anniversary month, I can’t say I’m surprised. I’m going to have to say it, while I think Stephen and cast have been utterly stellar with their acting in the last few weeks the 50th Anniversary has been very depressing. With the death of Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) to the strangulations of Serena Mason (Melissa Archer), Paige Larson (True O’Brien), Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and of both Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) all the way to the kidnapping of a pregnant Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) by the rapidly unspooling Ben Rogers (Robert Scott Wilson), his murder of the midwife Wendy (Denice Duff), and death of Aiden Jennings (Daniel Cosgrove) and the total pall of grief over most of Salem, I’d pretty much have to say that this “anniversary” has been like a pox on daytime. I mentioned on a message board I post to that anniversaries are supposed to be like Stephen’s previous soap opera GENERAL HOSPITAL where he played the Dark Prince Stefan Cassadine. I remember their 40th when Laura (Genie Francis) and Luke (Anthony Geary) were pulling a fast one on the Cassadines to make them believe the Spencer marriage was on the outs, and Laura and Luke had to try to make time to spend their anniversary together in the tunnels under Port Charles. All the roadblocks stuck in their path to finally reunite and recreate their dance to Fascination from Wyndam’s Department Store back when they were on the run from the mob. Now that was romanctic. What’s been happening on DAYS of late is not romantic, nor happy. It’s just plain morbid. Thanks DAYS for a great anniversary. I hear this is supposed to go on for the next nine months. I hope the rest of this pregnancy goes better than Abigail’s childbirth. The featured image is from Monday and Steve saying a tearful goodbye to Bo. Another of Stephen’s fine performances.
“Days of our Lives” 10/27/2015 Screencaps …. Or The 24601 Edition
October 28, 2015
So both Steve and Bo (Peter Reckell) finally got away, though we didn’t see how they broke their chains. Me guesses somewhere along the line back to Victor’s (John Aniston) plane they managed to find either a good bolt cutter or the key to those very heavy and serious looking padlocks. The title of the post refers to of course the Victor Hugo hero of Jean Val Jean in the epic story Les Miserables. Love to hear Stephen pronounce that one. Though I feel it would sound a lot like La Liaison Dangereuse (pssst, Stefan Cassadine reference). Also for you, Stephen as well as Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans), Galen Gehring (Rafe Hernandez), Thaao Phenglis (Andre and Tony DiMera), Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera), Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) and Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts) were on the extension of the Today Show with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. I’ll have both the screencaps and the clip up after this post. The appearance was in celebration of DAYS OF OUR LIVES 50th Anniversary next month and to promote the Greg Meng book Days of our Lives 50 Years.
“Days of our Lives” 09/03/2015 Caps & A Note To Viewers
September 4, 2015
Today’s screencaps are added. Love when Steve gets all up in Victor’s (John Aniston) face about Bo (Peter Reckell). Either Victor knows something he isn’t telling, or Steve knows something. Loved Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) welcoming Steve back to Salem. And man is Joey (James Lastovic) getting all Nikolas Cassadine (played on GENERAL HOSPITAL by Tyler Christopher) on Steve. I’m sensing a slight Nikolas vibe in Joey. Casting for this character was spot on. Also, I made a huge mistake when uploading the screencaps from Stephen’s DAYS episodes so far since his return. I had to delete the albums in the gallery and reupload them. So I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused by the confusion. All episodes are back up in the gallery and today’s caps added. As well, I’m also trying to decide about putting up a new media site for Stephen’s work. For any of my old visitors, you know I had a media site that disappeared somewhere around the Jurassic period. For the reasons surrounding why it went belly up, check out this post here. For now though please enjoy the daily screencaps.
Stephen Let Go From “Young & The Restless”
December 19, 2012
Didn’t take long for Jill Farren Phelps to fire Genie Francis as Genevieve on the show, now comes word Stephen has been let go as Tucker McCall on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. In the wake of this comes rumors of Stephen’s return to either DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Steve Johnson or GENERAL HOSPITAL as Stefan Cassadine. The most likely place might be GH since new executive producer Frank Valentini has said a huge Cassadine storyline is being planned. Wherever Stephen ends up I might consider resuming updates to this site. My main reason for abandoning it has to do with the negative response I received from Stephen’s ‘people’. Namely: His fan club president and official website owner. The fact they believed I said something I didn’t and treated me so shabbily didn’t help either. I would have thought as this is the only fan run website on the web dedicated to Stephen, I’d have hoped for a little bit more of a positive response. I also lost interest in Stephen’s storyline on Y&R. It’s a little difficult to enjoy something when the show is so boring and the storyline is really bad. While I’m sad to hear of Stephen’s leaving, I’m hoping he moves on to something that will utilize his talents better. If that be either Steve or Stefan, so be it. No word yet on Stephen’s final airdate though it’ll likely be sometime in 2013 considering Y&R‘s taping schedule.
SMALL STATURE AND ALL KINDS OF WRONG
March 10, 2011
While perusing the various Y&R message boards, I came across this that just about made me spit my tea out at my computer…not a good thing since it’s going into the shop to get repaired on Monday. But I digress….. Someone named LilKittenpaws on the IMDB board seems to have her information on Stephen in error. Let’s take a look at what she said… More below the cut.
She further states in another post:
How does one counter such idiocy? It boggles my mind. Tucker is not a copy of Victor (Eric Braeden). Not in any shape, form or description. And to say that Ashley (Eileen Davidson) shouldn’t be paired with a man almost a decade older…. That just smacks of all kinds of stupid. What Ms. LilKittenpaws fails to note is that Tucker is the son of a legacy character in Katherine (Jeanne Cooper). So because Stephen is what could be considered ‘short’ (he’s 5′ 11″) he shouldn’t be paired with women who are…also short or tall….? Would mean that Sonny and Cher were all kinds of wrong. Or should I mention Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban? Then there is the obvious misinformation she cites about Stephen’s tenure on both DAYS OF OUR LIVES and GENERAL HOSPITAL. She says that Stephen was fired from DOOL the first time around. We all know Stephen was itching to try something new and chose to leave on his own accord. As far as GH is concerned, we all know what happened when the Phelps/Frons/Guza regime came in. Honestly, this person comes off as a snotty 13-year-old whose parents wouldn’t let her on the Justin Beiber board. Any comments to enlighten this person.
STEPHEN – TWO SOAP TALK INTERVIEWS ADDED
October 6, 2010
An extra edition in conjunction with today’s eppy of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. I was able to get ahold of two interviews Stephen did on the soon-to-be defunct SOAP NET network’s talk show SOAP TALK with Lisa Rinna (ex, Billie Reed-DOOL) and Ty Treadway. In both, Stephen is very charming and lively in discussing his early time in getting into the ‘biz’, plus his influances, and his short film GET THE DIME, his first time in the director’s chair. I’m afraid the quality of the screencaps aren’t up to my liking, but the source wasn’t all that great to begin with. Both were likely a VCR-to-DVD conversion, and a lot of the time the quality gets mashed. But they’re not too bad and you get a good look at this man who seems to be a Dorian Gray of sorts. I’d like to know where that portrait of his is, because he hasn’t aged a bit in the last five years.
FEBRUARY 2008 DAYS OF OUR LIVES SCREENCAPS
September 18, 2010
As you can see, I really got busy this weekend with screencapping some of Stephen’s other work on soaps. I have a website dedicated to Tamara Braun and because of that, I have a lot of clips of Tamara’s six month stint on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as the sexy siren Ava Vitali, a role that won her the Daytime Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2008. But thanks to that, I have some of Stephen’s work during the time. I don’t have all of Stephen’s airtime during that time because I only recorded Tamara’s airdates. I did start to record all of Stephen’s work at that point due to a botched attempt at another website I was planning for Stephen, so I am sorry I don’t have all of his dates, but what I do have, will be included here. I have some feelers out in trying to obtain some of Stephen’s other work during his return from 2006-2009 and I’m hoping they pan out. However, until such time, please feel free to view the caps I do have. I’m planning on clipping up his episodes from the original recorded versions I have saved on an external harddrive and put them up at RENEGADE MEDIA. When I have them done I will post. At this time though, I know I’m going to piss off a whole host of Steve and Kayla fans with the inclusion of a lot of caps of Steve with Ava. All I can say is…live with it! I loved the chemistry between Tamara and Stephen and wished they’d been paired on GENERAL HOSPITAL when they were there as Stefan Cassadine and Carly Corinthos, however, the soap gods were kind to me and paired them on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Ava and Steve. Due to the consternation of the Steve and Kayla fans and some behind-the-scenes machinations, that pairing was cut short and I was deprived of my couple. So I indulged myself on my Tamara site with copious cappies [ TAMARA OBSCURA DOOL SCREENCAP GALLERY ] of my couple. I plan to do the same here. As I said, if you’re a Steve and Kayla fan, as I know most are, I’m sorry. Tamara and Stephen were just too hot to ignore. And I still feel deprived, and this is my site afterall….mine, mine, mine. If it seems as if I’m being petulant, I am. I’ll be posting an interview with Stephen and Tamara soon. Stay tuned.
