Best CARBO 2.0 Episodes

  


Since Carly's (Crystal Chappell) return last year, I've had my pick of favorite 2009/2010 episodes featuring  her and Bo and I have to admit until the infamous one when they got er... reacquainted in more ways than one, I was on pins and needles because I had no idea how it was going to play out and my main concern was Carly NOT getting hurt. But right now, the princess and the sailor's love is going on strong and all we want is for them to have their second chance; definitely in more ways than one!




Despite the current angst in DAYS right now, I've complied a list of Bo and Carly episodes( carefully edited of course) and pasted in this post for once. ENJOY!

BO AND CARLY: KEEP ON ROCKING!!!

Good news for the Carbos, Bo and Carly once again won the Soap Opera Pulse No. 1 couple of the week and Peter Reckell(Bo) and the lovely Crystal Chappell were voted favorite actor and actress; the viewers are dead serious about wanting this couple to have the second chance they deserve and aren't going to stop the fight till they get it.   

What being mostly clamoured for right now is Bo and Carly to walk down the aisle and have a wonderful married life afterwards as well as a child of their own at long last- I want them to have that but first the Carly Hate must stop; Bo and Carly won't have much of a love story if everyone in Salem- especially Bo's family will still treat Carly like a leper. And in today's episode, Mel- still angry that Carly had covered for Chloe actually said, 'She can never be my mother.' The writers are getting more stupid by the day; why make Mel hate her mother again and say those cruel words?
So far, Carly's bore everything with calm dignity but I can't wait for her to finally lash out at her prosecutors, especially that ungrateful brat and make them take a good hard look at themselves. 
Also, I would REALLY like for the writers(though I'm not holding my breath) to bring back Billy Warlock, the actor who played Carly's younger brother who was adopted by the Brady family. Not only will be be another ally to Carly but it may force the family to realise they haven't been fair to Carly at all- I mean... they can't expect Frankie to treat his own sister like they have been doing. 
But in the meantime, our love for Bo and Carly remains strong and we'll continue to fight for them- with all we've got- message boards, polls, video montages, emails, tweets- because they are more than worth saving!

CARLY HATE MUST STOP


Before I start venting, an important announcement; while I welcome comments from my visitors- I DO NOT and WILL NOT accept negative or rude comments on ANY of my posts; particular under the label 'Carbo.' Which means Bopes... and  get the message loud and clear; don't ever VISIT this blog again if you know you're going to be rude, negative and hateful about Bo and Carly- shey gbo?(Do you hear?) Moving on.


Besides Bo and Carly getting the love story they deserve; a major change has to be made and that's the Carly bashing. I'm not talking about the Bopes... they are more than prejudiced against our Carly and blind when Hope is concerned(boo hoo...)   we Carbos( who are not at all blind but are merely facing  the real facts)  cannot do anything about those haters but we can petition the DAYS writing team to stop with the Carly hate currently going on in Salem. Like someone pointed out; Carly is NOT the bad guy here; Bo and Hope have had more than enough problems over the years, long before she even returned- therefore she does not deserve to be treated like a leper by the people she was so very close with back in the day: Caroline, Julie, Maggie, Justin, Roman, Abe, Lexie... Kayla is the worst one and I was really furious at the way she badmouthed Carly recently- considering they'd been like sisters a long time ago. And I DON'T understand the reason for the hate- they all know Carly very well; she doesn't have one conniving bone in her body, there is no way she would deliberately break up a happy home... oh, I forget... there WAS NO HOME when she arrived! No, no... the Salemites refuse to blame Hope for the crumbled  marriage and and unfairly made Carly the unfortunate scapegoat.
 Or... is the actual reason for the hate is because she broke up with Bo? Bo was probably too heartbroken  to tell everyone what had actually happened that fateful day but it's not as if Carly was happy about it either; I clearly remember how she cried when they said goodbye(an episode I NEVER want to watch again; she  LOVED him but Lawrence and Vivian had got her all confused at the time and while Bo did an unselfish thing wanting her to be with her son, I felt that he should have made a better effort to keep her and what they have.
Either way, the writers have to put a stop to this nonsense- Carly does not deserve to be treated this way at all, especially considering all the good heroic things she did in the past; being involved in the environment, organizing the rallies again Jencon Oil, handling the Medicvan project and don't the present writers rememeber or know she'd climbed down an oil well to rescue Shawn Douglas or nursed Bo when he was seriously ill or saved other patients with that same virus???
And now she's about to get more undeserved hate; from her own daughter Melanie who just found out that her soon-to-be stepmother cheated on Daniel. I didn't want Carly to be the one to tell Daniel about  the affair because then everyone will call her a busybody/home-wrecker but now I wish she'd gone ahead and done so- now Daniel and Melanie will hate her for NOT telling them; thanks to that cowardly big mouth Chloe who 's obviously adopting the principle of 'I go down, I'm taking you with me,' (horrible girl). Carly is not getting a good story line- more and more angst, more and more hate. Considering the rest of the Salemites aren't exactly as white as snow themselves  it's uncalled for and unfair. If the writers want Carly Manning to lose her popularity among the viewers, it's NOT going to work. Besides getting her and Bo the long term love-story we want them to have, we should also petition that the Carly hate must stop once and for all, unless they plan to give her an episode where she takes a bullet for Bo; thus making her everyone love her again. I don't care how they do it, the Carly hate MUST STOP!

BO & CARLY: THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!


 I don't think I can take this much longer; I'm honestly fed up with the angst in DAYS, the procrastination from the DAYS writers and above all, K.C a.k.a Ken Corday. From what I've seen in the polls about who's the ultimate woman for Bo, it's more than glaringly obvious that the viewers WANT Carly to be that woman and the clamour for her and Bo to have what they were cheated of; a long term love story(and a child of their own) is increasing by the day. How much more requests and petitions must the fans send that will convince them to give Bo and Carly what they deserve?
And it's not like the viewers don't have valid reasons for wanting Carly.I can't speak for the other Carbo fans but I'm not prejudiced against Hope, not at all. She's Bo's first love... true enough, but let's face it, she and Bo     were not getting along long before Carly came back; more of incompatibility than third-party interference ruined their closeness, not to mention mistakes; the biggest one when she walked out on Bo with their Ciara- 'needed time to think' she said, if I'm not mistaken. She couldn't care less about Bo's feelings; I winced at the pain on his face when he tried persuading her to move back, she admitted that she still loved him but kept referring to the bad things that had happened to them and Bo insisted that they moved forward, for the sake of their love. But NO... Hope then went on to coldly  remind him that he had refused to listen to her opinions during the worry over poor Ciara and then talked about discussing 'visitation rights' before walking out on him again. 
Then Carly unexpectedly came back to his life the same way she did back in 1990, when he was sinking in despair over Hope. Helping her with her problems distracted him from his and with bated breath from the viewers, we all saw  a re-connection thanks to the spiritual bond they still had between them; warm, comfortable talks and laughs and smiles exchanged as well as an emotional kiss. Naturally Carly fell in love with Bo all over again(though she did admit to Bo much later she'd often thought about what would have been during the miserable years with Larry) and after a while he too realized he was in love with his princess as well. 


Which is what we are saying; Bo and Carly are in love again; why then drift away from a promising storyline to the 'Night-time Hope' story? What I really hate about the story that most people(the Salemites who once loved her and the Anti-Carly Squad in the real world) don't seem to get the idea that Hope caused her own problems in the first place and they treat her like some abused precious baby and blame Bo for what happened and heap a lot of guilt on him. As for Carly, everyone in Salem had treated her like dirt LONG before anything even happened between and Bo; refusing to believe she didn't come to Salem to steal Bo. The marriage was already on the rocks  but clearly they are looking for a scape-goat and so far she's said nothing to defend herself. It's not fair this is going on in the show at all, Carly hate within and out, especially after the infamous episode when she and Bo made love for the first time in 17 years- she was labelled all sort of horrible names! Personally, I knew it was inevitable Bo and Carly  would give in to the passion they'd been holding back but I wasn't pleased all the same; for one thing it was WAY TOO SOON and second, the writers did a bad thing making them have sex when Bo's still married- it made their  physical reunion rather sleazy; I have a strong suspicion that the writers did it on purpose to either give the Bopes more reasons to hate Carly or make her lose her popularity.
Well... ENOUGH OF THIS! These days, Carly is more or less holding Bo's hand as he wallows in guilt at Hope's situation. I'm not saying he shouldn't help her but he and Carly should stopped being blamed for something that wasn't their fault in the first place. We Carbos cannot continue to tolerate this stupid story line; Bo and Carly are the ultimate couple; Bo needs some stability in his life and Carly has made him more than happy than he's been in years. The writers need to do more research and view old clips of Bo and Carly in the prime of their love and STOP treating it as if it's forbidden and new. Their relationship is deep, spiritual, passionate and above all... MATURE. Which is why they deserve, no... EARNED their second chance. And if it takes millions of letters, tweets, montages and more Sno'balls to make K.C and the Days Writers(who don't seem to know what they are doing currently) to see how much we love this special couple and want them to have their long term story, so be it... we won't stop fighting. They HAVE to give us what we want unless they are prepared to lose a lot of viewers because I personally will stop watching DAYS if Bo and Carly separate again. THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!!!

SOPHIE OKONEDO: A TRUE CREDIT TO NIGERIA


The first time I actually came across her name was in a magazine article when she was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in the true-life film HOTEL RWANDA she'd starred with Don Cheadle in 2004. Born to a Nigerian father and a Jewish British mother, Sophie worked hard to get to what she has today; a flourishing acting career and a household name & it could'nt have been easy for her considering she was of mixed heritage like Halle Berry. One of the things I like about her is being a bookworm(like myself) and the way she becomes the character she portrays. Like in HOTEL RWANDA where she played Tatiana, the Tutsi wife of Paul Rusesabagina -to prepare for the role, she actually traveled to Belgium to met the real life lady, in order to study her character and mannerisms, how she met Paul etc, but of course did'nt make her relive the horrible days of genocide back in Rwanda when Paul hid more than a thousand Tutsi refugees in his hotel to prevent them from being slaughtered by the militia.


I remember seeing her(to my surprise) as an African princess in ACE VENTURA 2:WHEN NATURE CALLS, who tried to seduce Jim Carrey- it was one of her earlier works, back in 1995. But what thoroughly impressed me was what I watched just recently; the 2007 Oliver Twist mini series, where she played the character, Nancy. I was so psyched at her performance; she was brilliant, realistic and what I like best was her portrayal- this Nancy was a lot softer towards Oliver as opposed to the diamond in the rough Nancys in the past adaptations. She assured Oliver- after listening to his talk about the mother he never knew- that whoever she was, she must have been beautiful, cheering him up considerably.


I like and admire her very much- which is why i just had to post something about her. She may be half Nigerian, but I consider her a true credit to this country. May she continue doing us proud.


N.B: Her upcoming film is the biopic, SKIN.
