DOOL was a must-see soapie that I couldn't miss an eppy....
6 October 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews



From the year of 1989...I had spent a lot of time at a friendis house, who was and STILL is a DOOL fan, she managed to get me hooked on DOOL within days of introducing me to the show. In the beginning, I took it very seriously...then after a while -- it started to look different and had more boost of comedy in a drama soap series. I loved it! Especially when Eileen Davidson - who played quite a number of roles -- such as Kristen Blake, Susan Banks, Sister Mary Moira and Penelope Kent! It was hysterical watching the funny scenes, Eileen certainly did her best performance of her life! :) Unfortunately, I stopped watching DOOL in 1998 when I moved out to Australia from California...DOOL's about 4 years behind USA's current storylines and NO captions for the Deaf/hearing impaired! I'm Deaf, by the way. If captions were started here on DOOL, then I'll be the faithful fan again. :)
