Dear Soaps,
Dear Reiner,
Why don't you want Brandon and Sami to get together on Days of Our Lives? They have so much more chemistry than Sami and Austin, and he accepts Sami for who she is — unlike Austin. Do you just not like Brandon?

Dear Kate,
Actually, I don't like Brandon, and I don't like this watered-down version of Sami, either. She's neither heroine nor vixen, but she's certainly boring and wishy-washy. Sami is at her best when she's suffering, scheming or squirming, and, for the most part, Alison Sweeney (Sami) is being done a terrible disservice by the lame writing.
