I started watching from the beginning and its golden years was the late 60s to 1979…i quit watching briefly with the mass firings around 1980…watched several years…was an on and off viewer since the 1990s until a few years ago…i hope Ron C. can keep the momentum…had my doubts but he has done great improvements…i wonder what he might had done different for the shows 50th-which was too much darkness and not worth celebrating…i would had added several cameos from past cast members, clips showing past and present characters…and had several current characters like Ned and Hope play Doug and Julie ect..Ned as Doug singing ‘Most Beautiful Girl In the World’ to Hope’s Julie at a celebration of Doug and Julie’s 50th wedding anniversary as the real Doug and Julie watch approvingly and join in the singing-Susan Martin-Julie’s old rival (if Denise Alexander would came back) revealed as Ann’s mother and finding out the real reason why Ann hated the Hortons(Bill accidentally killed Ann’s father Eric Peters during a botched emergency surgery)…so much they could had done but didnt happen during the shows disaster of a 50th!!!

You and my Grandmother should exchange/compare notes, Jimmy. You tell a great story….good for you. I ‘hear’ the nostlgia in your writing, as I do my Gran’s.
Other than Another World, Days is her preferred soap.

I loved Another World…hope you showed your Gran some of those few rare vintage clips of AW that survived the wiping process from the show(a few are from the 60s to the 70s-there were some taken from a side angle but i still like seeing those rare epps in any condition)…its on kinescope but i have watched the wedding of Lenore and Walter from 1968 over a dozen times-its my all time favorite soap wedding-watching it feels like you are witnessing a real wedding-it was so well written!!!

Congrats, Days! Ron & co. have made the show fun and compelling. Really enjoying it. Now if those Nielsen numbers would come up, a renewal by NBC beyond next fall would be assured.

Ron has made Days watchable again. Now NBC has to show faith and promote the show.

Remember these good times, Days fans, because Ron runs out of gas around year 3. I’m a fan of Ron and think he’s a great writer (loved what he did with GH the first 2.5 years), but it’s very apparent when he hits the wall.

Ron Carlivati went from writing OLTL almost immediately writing for General Hospital.So now that he had time off between his writing at GH to his now writing at Days he’s been refreshed in a way and he won’t run out of gas.Plus at Days he has story consultants Sheri Anderson and Ryan Quan that could keep him focused and he can rely on.

The show has been excellent lately. I would love to see Phillip come back, keep Kate front and center and looking forward to seeing the new Ciara.

Hope you don’t mind people who disagree, but days hold very little appeal for me I’ve hung on again since 2011 for some good storytelling
THIS isn’t IT!!!!
Characters who interest me currently are Brady, Eve, Eric, John, Andre/Tony Abe, Val, Julie, Victor, Eli , Chloe, Susan, Steve, Kayla, Jennifer, Tripp, Loni, Ben. Lucas
Honestly no longer care what is happening with Marlena Evans family, Kate, Sonny, Paul, Adrienne, Justin, Hope Brady Which probably means without a significant changes my time of watching days is about over, after watching for DAYS for most of my life. IMHO nothing that has happened in the past currently matters to days. The show once was an amazing, fun, family friendly, SOMEWHAT faith based, full of surprises, enjoyable show . Now I can’t recommend it to anyone. I enjoy the old times stories not the craziness that days has become since they did Possession, SKK, Melaswan. The best stories were from the 70’s to late 90’s. The show had a ton more money to spend on location shoots, great umbrella stories. Now these stories are driven by what’s currently the “agenda” of the day NBC exec’s & what TPTB want to promote. I honestly makes me very sad to see days resort to such tactics to draw an audience. I will always love the stories about Roman & Marlena, Kim & Shane, Rojohn & Marlena, Jack & Jen, Steve & Kayla, Mike & Robin, Mike & April, Maggie & Mickey, Doug & Julie, Jen & Frankie, Carrie and WHATever flavor her dad wanted her mother to be this year, LOL. BAD-asses villains like Stefano, Victor, the Torres. The villains since the Alamain’s & Blake’s showed up in town diluted what it once used to be a great villains. I know most people think I stuck in the past. I’m not! I don’t mind when days moves ahead with new characters as much as many people who I see that complain. It’s the writing that has gone so far downhill that it very hard to find anything to compliment the show on anymore. I’ll always appreciate Sheri Anderson and Greg Meng for their efforts to keep days alive. They are both great people, as are so many of the vets from the show BUT bad HW for many years has taken it toll . I don’t think current HW is doing the show any favors. I hope that TPTB read all the comments. It’s appropriate for people to make both their likes and dislikes know. Maybe I am in the minority. Still I feel I have a right to speak up as a viewer.

“Like sands through the hourglass” … “… so goes the DAYS of OUR Lives ” “Thank You” @DOOL, Sony, NBC for continuing this dream team of the best production on daytime. this show is so full and replete with all the serial recipe FRIDAY – 11/10 cliffhangers, plus 1. JJ shoots Theo. my heart started racing and the angst will never let up. I care so much about Theo. I can’t blame “Kate” for any misguiding of the other DiMera.. that Abe so longs to protect his son. oh god.. where to start as was read in SOD soap opera digest… this reaches – ALL – of Salem. ALL of ALL the denizen of “Days of OUR Lives” the heart pounding reach of palpitation , where your heart mind and soul went let the incredible cast reach OH .. I cried JJ .. as played by the – at last – grown up .. steady as they go.. landed with Lani… they define sensual.. they define a sexual combustible connect unlike I’ve seen in a long time.. I am so besotted with Lani. THANK the soap god @DOOL brought her back to this fine show she is defining herself… every character who is connected to Abe Carver. The best family on Abe / Valerie / Lani / Eli / Theo .. surefire hit side note : I truly hope.. if the rumour mill is true.. that the actor Kyler Pettis . “leaked” information.. and yeah.. GIVE HIM A BREAK. when this show films.. 6 MONTHS in ADVANCE what viewer is going to remember ? all we care about is story. and this show is delivering ALL of that. Theo connect @DAYS.. by himself.. with James Reynolds… made us love them to bits.. all the more reminder of how loved Lexie Carver is. 2. Christopher Sean, Paul DESERVES prop. when he first happened @Will for the first time FIRED a layer of. his eyes filled with tear was this for .. ??? he’s alive and will lose Sonny ? he’s alive and recalls his tryst ? he’s alive and ??? didn’t tell anyone outright ? it was so moving.. I thought.. YES ! @DAYS production team for layering and giving Christopher Sean the actor.. to give the audience a shade of heart tug and pull i’m a little angered at Sonny lack of or “respect” for Paul. I know their is love between the two… AND they both acknowledge the love Sonny and Will shared. WOW what a conundrum. OK.. the set up – Paul.. held on to the knowledge of Will.. for 24 hours. he fesses up to Sonny as he’s released from the hospital. Sonny “in anger” directs to Paul – ” I don’t have time for this”, as he gives Paul his world series ring back this gave us all the more reason to cheer for … Paul I love the guy… I almost want @Andrew.. I think it was.. that with Will possibly having amnesia.. will be… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
