      two words that will change your life: Ad Block.

    • Bryce says:

      My favorite is that if I’m on my iPhone listening to music and open TV Line the music stops because of how many crap ads have been added. And no, TV Line, you do not need to use my location for anything. There’s a way to keep necessary ads simply and unobtrusive and TV Line has stopped caring. Michael, Matt, do YOU guys like being on your own site?

    I love Jeremy Sisto “I can’t find my cranberries cd”
    I miss suburgatory I think he will play this role well he was good on the original law and order before it went off air

    I haven’t watched Days for years now but bringing back Ava is a surprise. I love Tamara though so good for her.

  4. wrstlgirl says:

    Oh god. Ava was terrible, ick.

  5. alistaircrane says:

    Ava is a pointless return. Days should be bringing back real vets like Jack, Carrie, Austin, and Billie.

  6. Mr. Tran K says:

    Wonder if DAYS is considering possible returns for guys like Austin Peck (best known as Brad Snyder from ATWT) and perhaps Peter Reckell for the upcoming 50th anniversary.
