2007 Our Opinion!

By Stevsroze42


I have given a lot of thought to this article, and I guess I'd like to begin by giving some history as I see it!

I started watching Days of our Lives some 20+ years ago, when my daughter was a baby (she just turned 25) and I loved Days!! I would plan my kids naps around the one o'clock time slot so as to enjoy the show without interruption. That hour would take me to places that I could only dream about. wish for a husband that could only be scripted, and feel like my future as a super woman was just show or two away! I was a faithful watcher for years.

Then something started to happen to the strong independent women. They became victims, and angry what happened to our Hope who could bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan without losing that fresh morning look. who could keep Bo on his toes and make him love her like there was no one else on earth. She was becoming "REAL." Something that we who would watch for the sheer mindlessness of it was. That's not what I watched for! I didn't want to see Marlena become possessed. what not DOC!!! This was just craziness!

I had never felt more betrayed. My beloved soap opera, the one that took me away like no Calgon bath every could was just plain awful!!. The writers were betraying not only ME but his characters as well. The loving families the romantic stories were gone!!. That is when I stopped watching all together!

It took me 2 years to "come back" and give the soap another chance. I started slowly taping, ff through all the uninteresting parts. That left me with maybe 10 minutes of show. I could slowly see that maybe the writers heard our plea and were going to give us at least some of what we wanted. but it was going to be a slow and painful process. Then something happened to give us great hope!!

A NEW writer was hired. with great anticipation we waited to see where our beloved characters were headed!! The first few weeks. were good. but the pace has picked up, some old "stuff" is finally getting finished up. I do have to say the whole Bo/Hope/Patrick ending was lame. but for the most part I think we see a writer who wants to bring us back to where we started. Fast paced cliff hangers, women and men who love hard and are fantasies of the people we hope to become some day. So from a loyal fan here's to better "Days of our Lives"
