I love this show and I think the writers are fabulous. I was extremely irritated when JERk was head writer, I was worried the show would be canceled and not picked up if it was. Now...even if the show is canceled I feel confident it will be picked up and if NBC cancels DAys, I will no longer watch any NBC shows, there is plenty of good shows, better ones, then what NBC has, Days is "the" best show on NBC, the best soap in my opinion.
I've been watching for about 25 years. I love the drama, excitment and the meyham, especially when the DiMera's are prowling around. My all time favorite (well I have two) s/l's are...when Kristen/Susan were on and when Carly was buried alive by Vivian. Those were such interesting s/l's, I remember I would bring my TV outside when I layed out in the sun so I wouldn't miss a moment when Carly was buried in that coffin. I hated it when Marlena was possessed, I thought it was ridiculous!
I will never stop watching (hey, I lasted through the JERk years, lol) no soap is perfect, but overall, it's great, interesting and fun to watch.
