2005 Our Opinion!
Days Opinion 3/7/05 by Justin
Why, doesnít Lexie give John a placebo pill? John kept saying
that he needs something to take the edge off his pain, so why not
trick him into believing that he is taking a very powerful drug.
The only ones who would have to know are Kate and Brady. This way
John would believe that he has this strong drug, when all it would
be is a sugar pill, mind over matter. Many of sick individuals
have taking a placebo and it took the pain and symptoms away, when
the pill actually didnít do a darn thing to them.
Iím going to be a little compassionate toward Billie right now.
I did actually feel bad for Billie overhearing Bo saying to Hope
that Billie means nothing to him anymore. Even though Bo said this
to comfort Hope, I didnít feel it was appropriate for him to say
that knowing Billie was right in the next room, and listening. Bo
did share something special with Billie once upon a time, plus
they do share a child together, so Billie should mean a whole heck
of a lot more to him. I just canít understand how Bo was able to
turn off his emotions when it comes to loving Billie, because
there was a brief time when Bo wanted to be with Billie over Hope.
I do think Bo has unresolved feelings for Billie, but he is madly
in love with Hope that he never truly was able to have closure
Phillipís dangerous military mission lead into a treacherous
encounter with Tony, who is now holding him prisoner. This turn of
events Iím sure comes to no ones surprise, because we all figured
Phillip would get into some trouble. I thought, or maybe I was
hoping it would have lead to a POW (prisoner of war) story,
instead of a POT (prisoner of Tony) story.
This had to happen. Phillip had to be captured to make Belle
and Shawnís situation worse. This is going to make Belle insanely
crazy and she will feel so guilty over Phillipís
death/disappearance, that Belle will not move on with Shawn for a
long time. Of course Kate on the sidelines will be manipulating
Belle, which will cause her to feel absolutely horrible over her
feelings for Shawn.
Stanís facial expressions and mannerisms are close to those of
Samiís, but just a little different, which is because of the
switch in actors playing the role of Sami. You have to image how
hard it is to be an actor and try to play a woman playing a man.
Presently the story is interesting and a little bit comical at
times, I like it.
Tony must have a camera installed in everyoneís home in Salem,
because he knows everything that goes on. Tony called Kate to tell
her that Belle is cheating on her son with Shawn. That is a creepy
thought that Tony can watch anyone at anytime. Talk about your
first class pervert.
Chelsea so easily influences Abby and they both are going to
end up in a lot of trouble very soon. I did enjoy the
grade-changing situation, when I was in high school, I have known
of students who had changed their report cards so they wouldnít
get in trouble by their parents. I always enjoy when characters
are placed into situation that could actually occur. Sometimes
actually events can be more interesting than those fictional
situations characters are placed in.
I was so ecstatic that Jack did in fact make it home to
Jennifer. I was so sure that one of Tonyís goons was going to grab
him right before he entered his house. When the camera showed us
the back of Jenniferís head while she was clutching to Jackís
photo. I though it wasnít Jennifer, but someone dressed up as her,
so when Jack entered he would be captured again. I love it when
Iím wrong!!!! Now Iím ready for Jen to be happy again because I
hate when Jen is depressed and miserable. Now Jack can tell Bo
where he was so the prisoners can be rescued and we all can move
on it bigger and better circumstances.
Why, when a character is insane like Jan, do they always have
to place some doll or other object in their possession so they
talk to it like it is a real person? A few years ago we met nutty
nurse Allie who also carried around a doll; in fact it was a type
of Barbie doll. But if I remember correctly she named the doll
Carrie because Allie wanted to be with Mike and Carrie was
standing in her way. Why not get Jan a dog or a pet goldfish to
talk too instead of a doll find something a little more creative.
We are now getting to the point of Mimiís story. The aftermath
of an abortion can sometimes result in the woman not being able to
have any more children. Although, abortion stories are
passionately debated, I do think that what Days has done with this
story so far, has been bold and informative on what could go wrong
with an abortion. This story could in fact prevent other women
from having an abortion, or at least give those women who are
considering an abortion a better view. The fear that they may
never be able to conceive or carry another pregnancy, or even
become seriously ill from the procedure can motivate many women
not to go through with the procedure.
The other possible story to come from this circumstance might
be Bonnie carrying Mimi and Rexís children later on down the line.
From past shows Bonnie had stated she wanted to get pregnant with
Mickeyís child so that means she is still able to bear children.
Because Bonnie feels horrible about talking Mimi into the
abortion, I think that Bonnie will carry Mimiís children further
on down the line, which I think would be a great story.
Usually I donít care when characters use intense language
during a heated moment. But recently the characters are using the
word ass a lot in their dialogue. Once and a while itís fine for
the characters to curse. Iím guilty of cursing at time, so it is
understandable. But in one of the recent episodes it was said more
than a few times, so is it really for dramatic affect, or to push
the censors a little more to see just what they can get away with?
The Daytime Emmys
Well, it is that time of year again, time for Days of our Lives
actors to get overlooked once again. But first let me congratulate
Days on their two Emmy nominations for Technical
Direction/Electronic Camera video control, and for multiple
cameras editing for a drama series, hopefully they do win these
awards, since it is the only Emmys they are nominated for.
Over the past couple years; Days of our Livesí actors had got
little recognition when it comes to the categories of acting. I
truly feel that Days of our Lives does in fact have the most
talented cast in all of daytime. I have watched many of the
daytime shows that are currently in progress, but Days has always
been the most talented. Now I am not saying that the actors that
do have the nomination for this years Emmys donít deserve it, I
just feel that Days rarely receives due credit.
Farah Fath has done an astounding job this past year as Mimi
struggling with her decision to have an abortion and should have
received a supporting actress nomination. As always Deidre Hall,
and Kristian Alfonso, and Alison Sweeney have done some excellent
work in the leading actress category.
For the guys, Drake Hogestynís work has been superlative this
past year going through the loss of his wife, and now the drug
addiction. Peter Reckell as always has been wonderful, and Jason
Cook I believe should have been nominated for supporting actor
with his anger issues. But then again Iím sure those who are
nominated do deserve the nomination and to each candidate, Good
Hey, Itís just what I think
