Days Opinion 1/2/06 by
Happy New Year to everyone!!
The stories right now are just mundane. The older
Days of our Lives viewers have already watched the Carrie, Sami,
Austin, and Lucas love story and as much as I love Carrie’s return I
am not ready to go through this again unless there will be some
shocking twist like Carrie acting like Sami.
Next on the list is the
introduction of Lois Banks who is out to get Marlena. Why all of a
sudden are these people we never heard of back from Marlena’s past
out to get her. Marlena must be the Marcia Brady of Salem, and it’s
always Marlena Marlena Marlena! Please let move the story alone so
Marlena can get her memory back and help her daughter and Hope
through their terrible ordeals.
The only story I am
looking forward to watching is the play out of Zack’s tragic death.
When I first caught wind of the direction the story was going I
literally was in shock. But I will talk more about Zack later.
I just don’t understand
why Jack feels that he would be better off faking his own death than
to spend his lasting days with the family who loves him, so dearly.
Yes it will be painful for Jennifer and Abby to watch Jack die but
think of all the time he is wasting pretending to be dead. There
will be this immaculate reunion with Jack while he is very weak and
he will realize that he wasted so much time.
The Family Portrait
Often we the viewers see these fabulous
family portraits on Alice’s or Hopes mantels but never truly
remember the scene in which it played out. I give Bo a round of
applause for making a wonderful Christmas memory even though it is
the marking of a tragic event to come. It was nice to include
Chelsea in the picture because after all she is Bo’s daughter but
Mimi was a little surprising. If Shawn and Mimi were engaged at the
present time then by all means included her in the photo but since
she wasn’t it just seemed odd to me. Especially what happens when
Shawn and Belle disappointedly get back together there will be an
eternal reminder that Shawn was going to move on with his life with
Accidental on purpose was the phrase that
Max muttered when Frankie returned from the hospital with a broken
leg. It does not matter to me whether it was an accident or on
purpose as long as he is still around. Jack and Jen fans are upset
with the direction Jen and Frankie could be heading but I am ready
to see if these two will have the same chemistry they once did back
in the day. Jack is alive and he will stay alive which means Jen
and Jack will be together, I just want to be reminded of the love
Frankie and Jen shared many years ago.
What can I say about Kate except that if
we were in Oz somebody would end up throwing a bucket of water on
her. Kate has passed Sami’s evil ten fold. Kate wants her children
to be in horrible marriages. She changed Shawn’s medical records so
nobody would find out Shawn is Clair’s father. As the years
progress I dislike Kate more and more.
Kate wants Austin to be with Carrie. Why
would you want your son to get back together with a woman who slept
with another man while married to you and then run off to be with
him. Kate should be thinking Austin honey that woman is just going
to break your heart again. She still believes that Billie should be
with Bo, and that Lucas is better off with any woman even Carrie
just as long as it is not Sami whom he still loves. What a wonderful
Then changes Shawn’s medical records,
which Victor pointed out to her was extremely dangerous just to keep
Clair’s paternity under wraps. Kate believes that if Belle found
out that Clair was Shawn’s and not Philip’s child Belle would leave
Philip. So Kate wants her son to be in a unhappy marriage? Kate
needs to shape up or ship out!
Chelsea should never be allowed to be
near a car ever again. Chelsea, her parents, and Abby were hit by a
drunk driver, she also outran the cops, had a small wreck when she
and Abby were together, and now had another wreck and gets her
license taken away plus driving school. It’s about time the girl
has no luck with cars I just hope she never wants to be an airplane
Now with her current escapade I fear she
will never be the same nor will the entire town of Salem. This
should force Chelsea to make the transition from a girl’s immaturity
to full conscious adult life.
Wow this is the big event current going
on in daytime. The death of Zack Brady as I stated in my opening I
was literally shocked that this is occurring. This story is
basically happening to save baby Clair, and honestly the story
should have been flipped around. It should be Zack who needed the
liver transplant and baby Clair that died, that is if the show
needed to play our this morbid situation. In a perfect story they
both would live but if we didn’t have this drama there would be no
reason to tune in everyday and Zack dieing was shocking we really
didn’t see this coming until now.
First off, this will give Chelsea a
chance to find out what it means to be responsible for her actions.
This will either make her a Jennifer type character or a Sami
character. Next, we will get to see Bo and Hope shine with their
acting abilities, which we are cheated out of a majority of the
time. Finally, we will get to watch a story that is worth
watching. Up until now we have been fed magic smoke and the
impossible situations we are finally getting to the heart of the
what made soap operas soap operas family turmoil, not fictitious
islands that are identical to a town. Not many unbelievable maniacs
just trying to purposely wreak havoc on peoples lives just because
they are unhappy. We are getting to the heart of what people in
reality endure. In real life parents lose their children, women
have abortions, and infants get very sick. Now we don’t want an
entire year of depressing real life occurrences. I do give credit
to Days for attempting a bold and daring story that takes bravery to
Often when viewers do not agree with a story or they
find it offensive in an angry rage they decide that they will no
longer watch the show anymore. But the point is that it is a
television show that was worth watching at one point otherwise we
would have never tuned in to watch the show the first time and
continued watching it as the years rolled on. One has to take the
good with the bad, and if the story is offensive then embrace the
fact that this is only a story, sometimes the best stories are the
ones that cause the biggest controversy.
Hey, it’s just what I think!
A face can launch a thousand ships but one voice can
make a difference!
