Days of Our Lives is yes, a little silly at times, but i find it addicting. I started watching during Christmas break of my sophomore year and now, a 47 year old woman, i still find the show irresistible. At times the story lines can become a little far-fetched (ex. the Salem Stalker) but that's why i turn the show on everyday. It gives me a break from reality and lets me explore a completely different world. Some may find it a little bit silly, but that makes it all the more exciting. If you want to watch Days of our Lives, I say start now because there's a lot to learn. This show has been running since 1965 and I've loved every minute of it.
I have watched the days of our lives since I was ten years old. I admit that
some of the story lines are completely outlandish, like the one about eight
years back about Marlena getting possessed by Satan, but for some unknown
reason, I cant stop watching this show. The love for this show seems to be
an epidemic in my high school as well, among both guys and girls. I never
really watched a soap opera before this one, except for Another World. The
show's contract with NBC comes under review in 2004. Myself, as well as many
other diehard Days fans, are holding their breath praying that they renew
Chester's Rating: ********/10
I used to tape Days of our Lives every week day and watch all 5 episodes on the weekend. But since Marlena and John were sacked the show hasn't been the same. When they were on air both were forced to play some silly roles such as Marlena being possessed and John becoming a Stefano Dimera clone, but when they were given decent story lines they brought a degree of maturity to the show that was a pleasure to watch. Now it's all males standing around with their shirts off and teenage heart throb traumas which has given the show a trashy flavour. Tom and Alice Horton must be turning in their graves. I wish the writers would bring John and Marlena back and cut out some of the characters who are just window dressing. In fact more of the long time characters in this show also seem to be getting axed in 2010. It has beside many of their names on the IBMD list 1986-2010 which means that they are leaving in 2010? Is that right? I am very disappointed with what they have done to this classic soap.
I started watching days back in 1980 something, when John Black thought
he was Roman.My best friend got me into the show and I have been a true
fan sense. I will always watch Days, but I have to admit sometimes the
show is really bad. It is confusing when actors switch roles for
example,Roman used to be Chris and now Dr north is played by the
original Roman, whats up with that??Is Lexie the only Dr in Salem?? I
miss how the show was in the 80's with the super couples like Bo and
Hope ,Kim and Shane and my favorites Patch and Kayla. BRING BACK PATCH
I hope the show starts to get better can't stand the horror and sleazy story lines,
but in spite of that I watch as often as I can and I hope the show will continue I am addicted.
As a mother who has lost a child, I think DOOL's portrayal of Hope's and Bo's grief and anger was very realistic. I've been a fan of Days since the late 70's. Some story lines and actors are better than others but on the whole is is engaging and often deals with current issues. Frequently though, the story lines drag and are plots are repeated. There could be less of the cutesy early 20 somethings, and more middle-aged characters. I don't think there's one ugly man on the show and the women are all gorgeous. Bringing back Steve and Kayla is really fascinating to me and a great idea. Steve Johnson and his love Kayla were like the "Beauty and the Beast"; it was one of the best love stories on daytime TV. May Hope be carrying Bo's baby...although I don't know how old she is supposed to be. May Sami get what's coming to her...LUCAS. May Jack live forever!
I absolutely adore this show! I stumbled upon it by accident in 1999 on
a school lunch break and have been hooked ever since! Sky One cruelly
axed it and then Channel 5 picked it up - unfortunately this was only a
Its been off UK screens until - I SALUTE YOU - Zone Romantica for bringing Days Of Our Lives back into OUR lives! Its roughly a year thats past in episodes so its easy catch up on. Yes the story lines, sets and acting are very comical at times - thats just what makes it so addictive. I loved the whole Garden of Eden storyline with Greta and Austin - oh how I wish Carrie would come back and get Austin away from Sammie! Anyway the Princess Gina thing was so good! I really hope Marlena starts her radio agony aunt show again - that was classic! Well enjoy people - Zone Romantica weekdays 9am, 2.40pm & 9pm (sky digital channel 149)
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. :)

Long may this soap last, even though renewed currently until September 2013. Bringing back old characters lately; hope this keeps longtime viewers glued to the screen. Gotta hand it to the long timers who have acted on this for many years, including Susan Seaforth-Hayes and her husband Bill Hayes, as characters Julie and Doug. Sad the originals are mostly gone, like MacDonald Carey and Frances Reid. The younger characters keep the story lines in synch with updated technology, like video conferencing and the latest tablets, electronic gadgets, etc. Even the older ones are catching on. Who knew that Alice Horton would email someone the day before her own death? This show has had conventional story lines, as well as boring and sci-fi topics. One way or the other, it has stayed on the air. There have been different producers, directors and writers, as well as technical crew. Lord knows there have been tons of different actors since 1965 when the show began. I have watched several different soaps, but this one has survived.
I was drawn into Days in Dec. '06 when Chelsea was treating Nick
horribly - just before he turned into 'The Lonely Splicer'. For a few
days, I turned it on just waiting for that storyline.
Then I met Bo - which shocked me as he looks so much like my husband. Eventually, I recognized Steve from an episode of The Nanny (as I'd never watched ANY soaps before this...) Then I followed religiously the Shawn and Belle escape from Phillip (who I couldn't stand at the time) and Sami and Lucas's wedding triangle.
Now! I'm all about Phillip and Belle!! Since I'm new (?) perhaps, I never saw much chemistry between Belle and Shawn. I think Phillip's macho side is a more "normal" alpha-male - just determined and pained looking at times --- all that money weighing him down??! It seems totally realistic to me that Belle would be hard pressed to ignore the support and safety Phillip could provide - nature calls! I've been reading that regular fans are unhappy with Belle's new promiscuous side - but, this is a Soap Opera, right? Anyway, since enjoying this show so much, I've put some time into the other Soaps, but this one seems in a higher class altogether. The parenting tidbits of advice actually help me with my kids! (and spouse!) I guess just feel like I can relate to the characters - despite whatever plot mechanism is underplay.
Thanks to all who work for this show!!!!!!
I started watching this regularly in the 1970s, but haven't watched in
a decade or so. Now that I'm older, the melodrama, the snail's pace and
the young actors aren't appealing. I LOVE this show because they bring
back the veteran actors.
Anyway, when I remember, I watch the show on Christmas day. The characters used to gather round the tree and gaze at the ornaments with their names on them and reminisce.
I loved MacDonald Carey and Frances and miss their sense of stability on a show full of divorce, murder and mayhem. Nice contrast that's missing now.
