    Chrissi, just for one, my son and his wife are on opposite sides politically, but they just don't talk about it a lot.
    However, my son and I are on the same side, so I am ok. LOL
    But you could be right, oh the wars, my my, just look at the ongoing wars about Rafe and EJ....
    but that is what keeps the DOOL' turning and turning....
    I love it...
    Election, may it turn out that we get what is best for this country, such a great wonderful country, I love it...

    I've watched days for almost 30 years...through all kinds of changes, disappointing story lines, great story lines death and rebirth but Christin, I have to agree with your closing, the new writers know nothing about the characters. They came in intent to undo everything the previous writers had but into play, without regard for the characters or the fans. I stopped watching shortly before Nicole lost her baby, again...that was the last straw for me. After nearly 30 years of never missing an episode, I have missed over a month and don't think I'll be heading back to Salem any time in the near future. I missed the characters I had grown to care about...but then again...those characters left before I did.

    bell 75, I agree with you and Chrissi, some characters are hard to recognize and it is not fair when the new writers do not take the long time fans' feeling into account. We get a sense of who a character is after years and years of watching, and then, whamo, who is "That Person", what happened to so and so. Yes people change over time and due to circumstances, but to look at a "Stranger" is not what I enjoy in my Soap, that I have watched all my Adult life...

    So please writers, try to check your own Egos at the door, and do your Very Best to maintain a characters "basic personality", don't turn them over night into a person that I can not recognize anymore.... Hope I said that right and the point I tried to make did come across.

    I really thought that they were going to say the reason Nick was having a problem with Will and Sonny was because he had been raped in prison and consequently suffered from Post Traumatic Stress from the experience That to me would have been more believable and certainly would have made it easier to understand Gabe emphasizing with him and helping him work through it. That would have been an opportunity to educate by showing how he worked through his feelings to finally reaching acceptance that the two siutations are completely different. As for Sami, she has turned into a cartoon character and it's annoying to watch her these days. She displays the same intolerate behavior over and over and over and over----------------------------

    I'm so glad you guys agree that there are issues with the show and characters. It's been frustrating to watch lately when we love the show so much and want better for it right?!

    Lilyofthefields, I too wondered if Nick was raped in prison.

    Now if I would only proof by stuff - I meant "Gabi" and empathizing

    Haven't seen anything to suggest this, but will Bo be back as soon as an acceptable off/plot guarantee is offered?

    Will and Sonny--Would have been great for Michael Horton to oome home for a visit and have a heart to heart talk with Will about how it felt when he, Mike Horton, questioned his sexuality (circa 1977) and still would be interesting for Julie to share with Lucas how she felt when her best female friend back in the day fell in love with her and the challenges that presented for Julie. (Think if may have been the mid 1970's. Definately would like to see some connections to the history of the show and new story lines for such characters as EJ, Sami, Rafe, Nicole, Daniel, Jenn, the rehashing of recycled story lines is getting boring--Days was edgy and unpredictable in the past, may it soon go there again.

    At first I also thought that Nick had been abused in Jail.
    Sami right her, she is sort of a non character, as if the writers are trying to make up their minds, in which direction to send her.
    Maybe the writers need to really get "introduced" to all the characters and also make some real deep background checks to understand who they are writing for....Some characters comed across now, as if they have some sort of amnesia.. LOL... Who am I .
    Like your posts..

    I totally agree with you chrissi. I have watched this show for years but I took it off my pvr list right before this insulting baby mess with Nicole. I am keeping up with your spoilers in hopes that the writers see and change the error of their ways. I'm hoping since I don't have to see the ruin of the Characters I'll be able to care about them one day again.

    Im sorry, but the first thing Sony, Ken Corday, NBC, whoever it is that would make this decision, needs to do is stop the 3 months from tape to air. This is what is killing the show. We can complain to the people in charge but still have to sit through 3 months of story before anything changes. WilSon is the only storyline that is must see for me. Lately Ive been doing other things while watching bc you really dont need to pay attention bc nothing really interesting happens. Wasn't watching during Kristen's first go round, so I am intrigued by her and she does seem to share chemistry with many of the actors. I like her and EJ scheming and stuff. I love the character of Nicole, but I cannot wait for the baby storyline to be over. The only saving grace for me has been Arianne Zuker's acting. I think she is doing a fabulous job but I want my spunky, strong, Nicole back. Im hoping having Eric back will do just that
