2004 Our Opinion!

Days Of Our Lives Commentary
by Kathy

Diedre Hall continued to give a superb performance this week! In my opinion, she has us all on the edge of her seat, trying to figure out why she has turned into a killer. Many theories are floating around on the internet, but what is really going on? The writers have promised us that this is going to be a shocker, but for me, it has been a mixed bag. Sadness, because so many beloved characters are gone, intrigue because I need to see where this is going, and anger because I’m not sure I like this new direction. All I can say is – come on John and Tek – your on the right track!

I have been quite disturbed with the way Shawn is acting. When did he finish his training at the police academy? Yet he marches right in, looks at evidence, and begins spouting off his own theories. I realize both his parents are cops, and that he's picked up some things along the way, but I just don’t see how an average citizen can just jump right in to the middle of an investigation. Guess they do things differently in Salem.

I was so excited at the beginning of the week, when we saw Bonnie, and her chest was actually concealed. As I’m watching, I’m thinking this is good – tired of seeing her exposing herself. (As much as I love Judi Evans – I’ve seen more of her flesh than I care to!) Then…much to my horror, but not surprise, she whips open her blouse. Ugh! On the same note…Patrick – and all the other young guns on the show – finding any excuse to take their shirts off. I’m considering starting a fund to purchase shirts for all these young men – I’ve seen their chests, and don’t need to keep seeing them.

Loved Roman and Kate! I was pulling for this pairing from the beginning, and felt that each character brought out the best in one another. Through all their issues, they overcame, and I saw real potential. Guess the writers didn’t share my opinion. It was so nice to see them sharing some intimate moments.

Since Celeste was such a huge part this week, I have to say I love Tonya! Not that I’m into all this supernatural stuff, I just really like this character. Well, Dahlings…shall I just say that I think she was great this week. One thing that struck me as very odd was when she was reading the cards Thursday and Friday, and we didn’t see a picture of Jack – only his name, nor did we see pictures of Cassie, Tony or Doug. I’m guessing Jack, Cassie and Tony will not be returning as ghosts. The ghost scenes are a bit cheesy, as far as I’m concerned. I definitely don’t like seeing Tom’s ghost, especially since he is dead in real life. I personally find it disrespectful.

I particularly liked Julie giving Sami and Lucas relationship advice – clearly, Julie sees the chemistry, and I say bring on Lumi! I had to chuckle when Jennifer and Julie gave Sami her comeuppance – poor Sami – she always seems to open her mouth, and insert her foot. I’m sure she is very sensitive to Jennifer’s difficult pregnancy – she just has trouble expressing herself appropriately.

Last – but certainly not least – Alice. This woman is 90 years old – and still just as beautiful as ever. While it is clear she is declining physically, I applaud her talents, and her ability to continue working in her “golden” years.
