    One sorta loses interest when they let a fav go...then
    bring them back to mess with their character...then
    let them go again and bring in all new blood that you
    can't connect with....

    Is this what is going to happen with John Black again....
    and you notice...they waited until he sold his home
    in Malibu...before calling him back....I'd have told
    them....the ship has left the dock.........catch the
    next one out!!!

    Apparently there is no respect shown to the characters...
    only a certain few that they just have to give air time
    to....over and over and over again.....

    Doesn't matter how they uproot your life....just come
    on board for a couple of takes and then poof....

    I basically read Chrissi's blogs...........don't need
    to see all the rough/sorry/lonely/grief sex....

    Quote Sunlover127: I also have watched for 40+ years and there have many storylines I have LOVED!!! DOOL has had many characters I have loved and hated. I've watched the actors and actresses do good and bad things. I've experienced a gambit of emotions over the years as I've been surprised and kept in suspense, intrigued by mysteries and got teary and felt sad. All of this makes for a good soap!

    But, there have been a few times when I have found a storyline annoying or stupid and stopped watching for a short period of time.

    Those times for me included:
    Marlene's possession by the devil,
    the island of doubles (don't even know what the story was really about but I think there were doubles of everyone that was being killed or something?!?),
    Bo with Carly while Hope was taking sleeping pills that made her act stupid and try to kill him,

    BUT in my opinion the EJ with Abigail sex storyline is the worst storyline of all time!

    I have stopped watching DOOL and will read the summaries here and on other sites online to find out when the EJ/Abigail debacle is over, turns murderous, fizzles out, etc. and will watch again...maybe. This has really soured me against DOOL.

    I will watch Samantha's final shows.


    The above bolded is thes worst!!

    It's as though tptb have no respect for Sami as a main character and she has been replaced by a less than good character.....propping someone who simply does not have what it takes!! JMO

    Quote allmylovingdays: I know luvingBo&Hope will say a long long time ago How they treated Bo & Hope was a shame, I agree. I never could stand Bo after Carly came into the picture.

    I think the nonwedding of Kristen. And you would think that Kristen's ugly deal with Eric would have turned me off. I just stopped liking her character when she went through with it. I had such high hopes for her and Brady at one time.


    "allmylovingdays", you are SO right about what I'd say about "when" DAYS lost me and it definitely WAS when they started messing with Bope, bringing them down, & using them as props for other characters several years ago. His nasty, extremely unpopular OOC affair was devastating to Bope and not only brought Bo to the cellar it also brought DAYS to the cellar all alone (not likely they'll EVER recover either with choices tptb have made throughout)! The real problem here was that writing team during the affair was relentless (as much as I am about wanting the REAL Bo back - not that one they destroyed - in trying to force Bo with Carly. When they finally HAD to end that humiliation & ruination of Bo/Bope & put Bo back with Hope where he'd been established VERY acceptably for nearly 40 years, they didn't commit to writing a heartwarming reunion - just put 'em back one day with no build-up, promotion whatsoever. That's why some never cared for Bo again - VERY weak writing & that's who's too blame - NOT the amazing actors/characters. The fans were definitely insulted & cheated throughout! Now, what I want & keep repeatedly posting is a return of the REAL Bo and the REAL Bope with professional, creative writing - watching them as they've matured but still look so hot & amazing - let them be what they still could to DAYS! Anyway, much of the new audience, as small as it is nowadays, doesn't know this best-of-DAYS couple many of us do (as they were & were created to be - not the wasted props they became - because this talented, charismatic, full-of-chemistry twosome would still deliver WITH beefy material. I'm sure there're other characters/stories/situations that have contributed to DAYS downfall, but I can promise you the misuse of Bo and Bope was one of the LARGEST reasons! They were the signature couple on DAYS (and still are to many who never even watched the show), so their waste has had a huge impact on what's gone wrong with this show - not just me but thousands like me!

    The bold part of the above post says it all. After putting up with awful stories and characters, the destruction of my all time favourite couple BOPE, when Bo cheated on Hope with that b**** Carly, the final straw for me and the main reason I am not watching anymore was the disgusting porn sex between EJ and Abby at the cabin. Sorry I will never buy this crap that EJ would cheat on Sami especially with a boring unlikeable twit like Abby. The 18-49 crowd (who apparently are all that matter to tptb) might find porn sex a turn on but I find it a total turn off.

    Quote Master: Fading I'm in no way being disrespectful to you but if you intensely dislike ejabby why do you post in the no bash thread? Just curious. I do enjoy your posts there but it confusing.

    When didDays loose it for me, was the day EJ raped Sami then the grief sex between them. I'm not in to angry sex or watching a woman being victimized. Lustful or loving sex is what I enjoy. This father Eric and Kristin r rape turns my stomach. The fact that Days writers have managed to change all the characters history makes me sick.


    Sorry to have to defend myself, but as I re-read some of the very few posts I have made on the "No Bash" Ejabby thread I fail to see that my non-emotional comments were BASHING. In fact, check out some of them if you can take the time...
    #37, pg. 4; #95, pg. 10; #183, pg. 19; #224, pg .23

    In fact one of those posts states that I have moved into the Ejabby camp (at least for now.

    If anyone thinks I have violated some "rule," the person to decide my fate is the Administrator. By the way there have been posters on that thread who HAVE been negative toward the Ej/Abby connection.


    In no way shape or form did I say anything about you bashing or violating rules. I simply asked because I want sure if you were teddering on the ejabby ejami fence. I apologize if I offended you that was not my intent. As I said I enjoy your posts and unlike the highest percentage of posters can't manage to post in both. You are always welcome to post your thoughts there. I don't want this to discourage you.

    There have been a few of those incidents. The show is set to record, so I'll still turn it on, but usually just use it as background noise when I'm doing things around the house or put it on late if I can't sleep. Usually puts me to sleep in one or two scenes. Yes, DOOL is great for insomnia.

    For me, it really lost it with the way they wrote out John & Marlena a few years back. It was such a slap in the fact to long time viewers and to the actors involved. (or so it appears that way to the naked eye as to how Corday treats his actors - there's always more going on behind the scenes than we will ever know)
    The other one is of course they way they destroyed Hope and Bo. - sloppy lazy writing and characters written completely out of context - no wonder PR left the show. But the show has been renewed for 2 years, so congrats to them and to all to the many people that will stay employed because of the renewal.

    I hope you didn't mind me using you as an example because I know how long it has irked you - I still never understood what the deal was on why they didn't write for Bope. Like you stated they were the signature couple and I know bloggers out there try and say if you are happy in a relationship you are backburned to the side. These writers though just repeat rinse repeat storylines and then when they do come up with anything new it isn't entertaining unless you like just sex no buildup no romance nothing but a complete 180 to characters. I am using that line from a coworker that watched todays and she is shocked beyond belief that this is her soap she has watched for years that is is down to this dumb writing.

    I absolutely don't mind AT ALL, "allmylovingdays" - I KNOW how long I've been complaining about this and my posts are repetitious & relentless (and I'm sure boring to some)!! However, I'm on direct point each & every time - no variation - because I honestly believe this is a HUGE reason the show has declined & sits on the bottom of the ratings!! The last couple of writing teams have their OWN agenda which has not been successful overall but they've refused to budge. Blending the newbies with established, core, POPULAR vets would've worked so much better & I'm confidant the show would've stayed successful, but pushing the vets aside & neglecting longterm viewers & their wishes has ruined the show. Yes, there are some "happy" viewers now, but it doesn't take rocket science they lost thousands more than they've gained or kept throughout this losing process! It's nice DAYS got renewed for two more years & some keep their employment and the ones still watching keep their entertainment, but I'm totally convinced it was because of getting to the "50" year mark and NOTHING to do with good story telling by the writers AND who's featured front & center, etc. - they're planted on the bottom of the ratings & there's no way to spin that as "good"!! I'll stay on point til ALL chance is gone for them to wake up. Would still love to see my once-favorite show return to recognition & the see our faves take the show out in the style & with the foundation it was built on (along WITH their young ones, too, of course) as this half-century mark gets closer!! Respect & honest to history & characters' history would be so welcoming & refreshing!!
