pearlite June 13, 2014 Share June 13, 2014 You just made me think of something here, Blade. Nichols' Tucker was moving [sometimes awkwardly because of the writing] in a more contemporary direction. I don't just mean the window-dressing of his "rock" past; I mean the way he played some of the character details, and his attitude toward other characters [sN's acting]. He didn't come across as a museum-piece millionaire--which, with all due respect to the Classic Triad [Katherine, Victor. John] who play[ed] the soap-staple rich folx--and he was starting to play the layers. He was a new character in that sense, and yes, SN could have brought some heat to bear on Victor. For sure, SN was playable with a wide range of female characters, and he was also an interesting contrast to "well bred" second-generation wealth like Jack or "just dumb/indulged" second-gen like Nick and Victoria. If the character had been written well, he could have added some interesting twists to various storylines. Pearlite - you are definitely not alone. Count me in! The show really screwed up when they lost Stephen Nichols. He was pair-able with most of the female characters (whereas Cotton Top definitely was not). SN oozed a debonair billionaire aurora and certainly came off as someone who could take Victor down. With the loss of Katherine, Tucker could have kept the Chancellor legacy alive and kicking. Like I said, TPTB totally screwed up in losing Stephen Nichols. Snaporaz - Totally agree about Miss Devon. Tremendous potential lost there. Of course, I'll never understand why Devon was so quick to forgive the ones who were to blame for keeping him and Tucker apart, yet held Tucker responsible for global warming. Sadly, when SN left, so did my interest in Miss Devon. And, yes, Snaporaz, to me that was the only storyline where Devona sort of woke up from his trance and became interesting. 3 Link to comment
