Days Opinion 5/13/04 by
Days of our lives should be called The
Depression of our Lives, since everyone is crying and grieving
over their losses. The only happy couple we are seeing is Rex and
Mimi and those moments are few and far between. I really do like
Mimi she is my favorite younger character, but she buts in to
Shawn and Belleís life way too much. It is great that Mimi wants
them to be happy, but you know worry about your own life and let
Shawn and Belle work through their own problems sometimes you do
more harm than good interfering in other peopleís problems.
I do not like the way they are writing Jan. I would rather listen
to the other actress whine over Shawn. I figured since they
brought on a new actress to play the part of Jan Spears they could
have changed the character to be a stronger woman going after what
she wants, instead of this insane character we are watching. The
new actress who is playing the part is doing a great job so far,
so itís not the acting, it the character.
Jason Cook is going to be initiated into soap opera clichť. I
guess you know when you have made it as a soap opera fan favorite,
when your character gets kidnapped. I donít want to sit through
another kidnapping, but maybe this will take our minds off what is
going on right now. I was impressed with Jan dressed up as the
elder woman, the make-up artists should be commended they did a
wonderful job with transforming her.
Marlena under the truth serum was fantastic scenes to watch, I
havenít been disappointed in any of Ms. Hallís performances. She
is starting to take us deep in the mind of a serial killer and we
are seeing a side of Marlena that is fascinating and bizarre to
the many Marlena fans.
I was genuinely touched when Hope was talking to Marlena. Hope
being a concerned friend and advised Marlena not to take the truth
serum. We are seeing the true colors of who these characters
really are. Hope even though the evidence is pilled up against
Marlena she still believes in her innocents, until she hears
Marlena confess. Usually we get cheated from watching some these
touching moments between characters, but Hope and Marlena were
worth watching that episode.
I was touched deeply after Marlena got shot, and the reporters
were letting her say what she needed to say to her children. Those
scenes were emotional and the flashbacks they showed Iím sure
didnít leave a dry eye for any viewer. Even though Marlena had
committed these terrible murders, Iím still rooting for Marlena.
Kristen Storms and Allison Sweeny as always didnít disappoint me
with their performances. I will admit when Kristen first came on
the show, she seemed a little green, but as time went by she has
proven that she is an amazing actor and really can hold her own.
I understood Boís point of view giving a shoot to kill order on
Marlena, but still he is out for revenge, mostly for his motherís
death. I just donít understand why Marlena kept holding the gun,
being a trained psychiatrist she should have known that if the
police saw her holding a gun they would consider her armed and
I would like for Sarah Buxton to stay on Days. I really like her
as an actress and Iím sure there are things for her to get into in
Salem outside of prison. Crystal could be used to complicate
things for Phillip or Patrick or even some of the other older
characters in town. I see a lot of potential for her!
Sami is really going through a lot right now, even though she
claims Kate and John are behind the ten deaths in Salem she is
starting to realize that her mom is the one responsible. I know
there will come a time when Sami will no longer be the bad girl,
but maybe the time is starting to arrive sooner than we think.
Brady needs to get a life! He is constantly eavesdropping on
Nicole and continuously making her tell him everything she is
doing and it is getting old. We all know that she is responsible
for Victorís death, but it is getting too annoying to have Brady
always lurking behind Nicole, and every time seeing her mentioning
an accomplice. If he things that Nicole is this horrible monster
then he should just move out and wash his hands of her, it just
seems that everyone in Salem has to play detective instead of
leaving it to the professionals.
Hey, It is just what I think!
