''Bring back the romance''
13 January 2006 | by pokemon01570See all my reviews

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.
