Did You Know?


In 1991 Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans Black) was lured back to Days of Our Lives with the promise that she could serve as executive producer of a DAYS spin-off called "Manhattan Lives". Initial hopes were to begin airing in 1994 if Another World wasn't renewed. In the end Another World (1964) was renewed and the spin-off never came to be. See more »

User Reviews

People endure the romantic and hard trials of life in a small town called Salem.
3 August 2004 | by darkromanwineSee all my reviews

Out of the current 9 soap operas on still television, Days of Our Lives remains my top favorite. I love the rich history of this show that's 38 years old and still going! You can't beat supercouples like John & Marlena, Bo & Hope, and Jack & Jennifer who are fan-favorites and have been since the great 80's. What I love most about the show is the great sense of family that I get when watching it. Shawn & Belle, the two most endearing younger characters on daytime, also form one of the most endearing younger couple's in daytime history. Sadly, though, Belle's portrayer, the beautiful and talented Kirsten Storms is no longer with the show and it is no longer quite the same without her.

I have many praises for this show - I've been watching it on and off for about 7 years, but I must say that in these last couple of months it has lost it's magic. It's become quite boring - what happened to "Miss a DAYS, miss A LOT!"? Without the REAL Shawn and Belle on the show, and many of my other favorite couples torn apart (some of which are mentioned above), I don't know how much longer I'll be able to stick with the show, without needing to take a break.
