Like sands through an hour glass...
26 November 2002 | by luvnsweetSee all my reviews

...these are the days of our lives." These famous words spoken by MacDonald Carey and the hourglass. The history of Days is rich with great storylines and not so great storylines, couples that are multi-dimnesional, unique, fun-loving, dramatic, funny and couples who are just a bore. The history of Days of Our Lives is similar to other soap operas in existence but in my opinion, Days has one of the richest history. It has some of the best cast in daytime and some of the most memorable storylines.

How can I talk about Days and not mention my favorite couple on that show? Jack Harcourt Deveraux and Jennifer Rose Horton portrayed by the brilliant and gorgeous Matthew Ashford and Melissa Reeves respectively. Their love story is unique, dramtic, poignant, funny, sexy, romantic, and enduring. Matt and Missy portray these characters so vividly and the viewer knows exactly just what they are going through. (note: I am talking about J/J during the late 80's, early 90's right now their storyline is kind of shaky. We don't know what Jennifer feels although I have a pretty clear idea) Anyway the chaste and "good girl" Jennifer falling in love with the "town pariah" is just one of the best love stories, if not the best one, in daytime history. These are two characters who have flaws and fears yet they overcome some of them and have dreams with the help of one another. With the help of Jennifer, Jack realize that he is worthy of love. Jack pushed Jennifer to be the best of journalist that she can be and guided her. To quote a fellow Jack and Jennifer fan (Jennifer whose werbsite "No Ordinary Love" is just wonderful) "They were an unlikely couple from the beginning--the young, innocent girl next door and the town pariah who everyone thought was irredeemable. But what unfolded was a love story that was poignant, funny, sexy, romantic, and most of all, enduring. In Jennifer, Jack found redemption from his past sins, and in Jack, Jennifer found her strength and spirit. Together they faced numerous obstacles and adventures that only made their love stronger."
