Readers asked Soaps.com staff to give their opinions of what's going on in their stories. You've told us, "You're always listening to us. Let's hear what you've got to say!" We're game! Here is what you had to say about these four randomly selected soaps, All My Children, Days of Our Lives, One Life to Live and Y&R:
All My Children
Danielle G writes, "I will never watch All My Children again unless they bring Babe back. I and a lot of my friends will stop watching! There have been too many deaths lately, and Babe shouldn't be one of them. I like Babe's character. Although she's flaky, she's sweet. I like her and JR together. I hate the thought of her dying & JR angry with her because she's flaky and keeps getting caught giving Josh a goodbye kiss time and time again. It is Josh's fault that Babe is dead and was unhappy, yet JR is getting blamed. Keep her on the show or they will lose at least a dozen loyal fans! They shouldn't treat Fans like they're idiots."
Kristi (AMC Editor) writes, "Well, first, we can't say for sure that Babe is dead. Rumors are circulating that at least one character will come back from the dead - and that could definitely be Babe, who is still under contract with AMC. I enjoy Babe on the show; I think she adds a touch of sweetness and a lot of backbone. Once she has made a decision she seems to stick with it, even if the decision hurts her. For instance, she didn't cave in to JR over little A's custody. If she comes back, I think we'll continue seeing the Babe we know and love. I also think we will begin seeing a new side of JR over the next few weeks. He is obviously struggling with what he did to Babe. I don't think the evil JR will go away forever, but I do think we'll see a little bit of his softer side as he deals with guilt over Babe's death. Will JR and Babe get back together? I have no idea, but I'd love to see them interacting - in love or hate! - again soon."
Days of our Lives:
Terri W. writes, "I think Sammy should be pregnant with twins....one being Lucas's and the other being EJ's! What do ya think?"
Chrissi (Editor-in-Chief and Days of Our Lives Editor) writes, "I agree completely! While I want Sami to have some happiness for once, I do think that in order to further the storyline it would be a great idea to have Sami give birth to twins. Perhaps one of the kids would turn out bad and the other, good! It would make for tons of interesting future storylines!"
Florence L. explains, "I don't think what you're doing to Shawn and Belle is fair. That guy Phil is not the father and should have no say in the matter no matter what his father stands for. As for EJ, I think his time is running out. I have no idea where you get your writers from but they do a lousy job in scripts trying to break up a family like taking Shawn and Belle's baby away from them. I guess your writers do not have family values."
Chrissi (Editor-in-Chief and Days of Our Lives Editor) writes, "Life isn't fair and sometimes our soaps aren't fair either. I hear ya! I agree that Phil needs to move on. Since he has come back from the war, it appears as though he has Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (not to be confused with the disorder!). We'll get to see a Shawn and Belle reunion soon... we just have to hang in there! As for the writers,I can't speak for them, but I have to say that if they only wrote sweet, kind and considerate storylines, we'd probably all be bored stiff!!"
