Life is Rich…E-R-S-O-N

Just sharing opinions…take it or leave it.

“These are the Days of Our Lives…”

Alright, simply put – I’m extremely annoyed with Days of Our Lives.  If you don’t watch it (or never have) you will not enjoy this post.  Those of you who hate soaps – I’m with ya – but Days is pretty good.  I don’t DVR it or anything – but I was planning on being in front of my TV every day of maternity leave with my baby and we would catch up.  But I’ve pretty much had it.

First of all, you CANNOT take Luis and Teresa from Passions, change their names and attitudes and put them on Days.  It’s not really working for me.  Luis/Raif needs to stay with his good guy cop image on Passions.  And Teresa/Ariana (I’m sorry but is that even a Latina name?!) can’t just over night become sane because she switched soaps.  Switching soaps can work for some – just not for them.

Also, who the world is Mia?  Oh, and isn’t Sydney really Sammy’s baby?  Apparently not anymore because Mia had her.  Ugh – this is so dumb.  I know soaps aren’t supposed to make a lot of sense – but this is ridiculous.  At least give me something I can follow!  And Kate.  Don’t GET me started with Kate.  She’s lost her marbles, that’s for sure, and so has the rest of Salem because Kate has poisoned just about all of them and keeps getting caught – but she still does it again.  Dumb.  And why do all of Stephano’s kids have different accents than him.  Mystic Tan Tony is apparently somewhat British, EJ (what kind of name is that anyway) is really British, Lexi is completely American, and then Stephano has a Russian accent.  (I’m not blasting you Stephano, you will always be a favorite….but seriously, the accent?) And WHERE is Celeste?

I’d like to relive the good ole Days.  (See what I did there?  days, Days…. )  I know Deirdre Hall was kicked off or let go or something – but Marlena and Jon Black cannot stay in Europe forever!  And bring back Jennifer and Hot Jack.  (Please don’t bring back Real Jack – he was NOT hot.)  Austin and Keri and Mike would stand a little action, too.  I’d even go through Marlena being possessed again IF it brings back the people we know and love.   Oh – and Sammy’s twin, Eric.  And Billie. (Big Lip Billie – not the other one.)

I don’t know.  I was ready to devote an hour a day to this hot mess.  Now, I’m just gonna have to settle for a nap…

I would TOTALLY watch old Days with you! I so miss that… Marlena being possessed… SOmeone getting burried alive? Can’t remember who. I loved Austin & Keri… Do they make DVDs of old soaps?! If so… I’m thinking 30th bday!

I used to be an avid Days watcher, now, just occassionally.

The whole Rafe/Louis Ariana/Teresa thing has been SERIOUSLY bugging me too, and I barely watched Passions.

When is Chloe going to come out of her coma? We KNOW she’s going to live, just get it over with already.

Daniel? Dude. Who’s he going to sleep with next. My guess? Billie. If she comes back.

I’ve about checked out from this soap.

I so know what you mean! I do DVR it, and realized the other day that I had 33 episodes to catch up on. I caught a “live” episode and now feel no need to watch the old ones. I’m all caught up. It really is annoying! I heard a rumor that Days was not going to be around after next year. Maybe they will have some old cast member reunions and go out with a bang! Oh, for the good ol’ “Days” when we’d watch it in Garey!

Wow – Guiding Light ends, and now maybe Days? What is the world coming to? 🙂 Those days at Garey. Days, Crazy Lady’s, Bus, Crazy Lady’s, Taco Bell. Can’t believe they are tearing down Garey….
