Before we really get into it, I’ll explain what this column is all about: Kristi’s opinions. That pretty much sums it up. Kristi (that’s me) will share her opinions every week on what’s happening in Oakdale – and sometimes what isn’t happening! If you agree with her, great. If not, that’s great, too. Agree or disagree, hit the comments area and we’ll talk a little more about the goings on. That said, let’s get to it!

So, I don’t think I’m in the minority here when I say Jack needs to shut up where Carly is concerned. Yes, she slept with his cousin but it isn’t like they’re together anymore. Or have been together in forever – at least in Soap Time. I totally feel for Lily but Jack is just making me crazy. And don’t get me started on Holden.

You know what I’d really like, and I know it’s impossible because Jon Prescott (Mike) is leaving, but I’d like to explore the chemistry between Lily and a few new guys. Maybe Lily/Jack or Lily/Mike. . .or bring in a completely new guy. She needs a break, a man who will build her up instead of tearing her down. Yeah, that’s me, off the Lily/Holden bandwagon. At least this week!

I’m probably going to upset a few people but I really like the Parker/Liberty storyline right now. No, I don’t think either of them is emotionally mature enough to handle a sexual relationship … but what teenager is? And there are a lot of them out there having sex. So kudos to the writers for tackling this subject. The parents’ reactions were completely natural, the kids’ reactions to the parents were totally realistic. The drama is high for everyone involved in this particular storyline – and isn’t that what we want on Daytime Television?
