I like that Y and R continually updates their opening yet keeps it classic while giving the actors credit. GH has done a disservice to actors and characters by having them whizz past in an abbreviated 12 second intro. And Days Of Our Lives totally needs a new opening. The opening sequence of a show should be somewhat indicative of the tone of the show and Days opening is dated, old fashioned and not relevant. They can keep the theme but jazz it up to be uptempo and contemporary. They can keep the hourglass…but as the sands begin to fall…that… Read more »

It seems that only the women are given props in their opening credits: diamonds for Melody Thomas Scott, candles for Christel Khalil, champagne flutes for Eileen Davidson, roses for Melissa Ordway, and whatever that was for Mishal Morgan.

Agggghhhhhh!!!!! Too similar to Bold and the Beautiful. And I don’t really like that they ended it with “the mystery woman”.

Is that Michelle Stafford in the dressing gown? The mystery woman you mention seems to have the same body type as Stafford and she walks like her too.

A few characters such as Daniel Goddard could be eliminated from the list. He is a lousy actor, just can’t see him in a romantic role with a woman.

Tomas Torquemada

He’s definitely grown on me. But like so many characters, he literally has no story or a story so tiny it’s meaningless. (Ashley did nothing these last three years, Abby is down to nothing, ditto Noah, Jill finally has a story after an Ashley-length time in the wilderness, anyone remember Kevin….)

kind of blah…same ol same ol….like the storylines right now…..i’m trying really hard to make it through an entire episode without fastforwarding, but find it so difficult. I know I told myself to give it six months to see what Sally could do with the show…but it is sooooo boring right now….not one sl keeps me interested….i’ve even started watching Days again, which has slowly improved and awaiting the head writing of Ron Carlivati…..do something soon, like bring Sheila Carter back and have her wipe out the entire town…..or even Daisy and Ryder…..something, please!!!!!!!!

you know maria arena bell was the best writer for that show , it had action with big story arcs that kept you entertained . viewers want these type of stories with that pace and rhythm nowadays . i loved when ashley was gaslighted by adam , when diane was killed , the ricky williams story , sharon skye the volcano and sharon on the run , harmony ( debbie morgan ) and genevieve ( genie francis ) , love the patty and emily identity thing especially when emily ended up in the psychiatric hospital instead of patty , fans… Read more »

Lol. Um…sorry to say…you are definitely in the minority on loving Maria Arena’s work. I will give her some props though. I loved some of her early work! Bringing back Patty finally….with an amazing actress and imaginative writing was soap brilliance. Except for killing Colleen….I loved every part of the Patty saga. And she finally brought back Nina’s long ago son. Many of her plots started out promising but then devolved into crap! By the time she was gone, the show was a complete mess. And to all the viewers who complain the show is now “boring”….you need to keep… Read more »

I peeked in at work and Heather saw it and said;
They look like Vanity Fair Ad Models .. lol

Now, when I see the opening I’m going to see a Vanity Fair ad….. hmm but for what? perfume? ahh Liquor (they drink, every day lol)

I can’t understand the ‘excitement’ over a new opening..
It’s just a different opening .

Like it overall, but yeah, it was way past time to get rid of the walking mystery woman (Michelle S). Puzzled as to why they kept that element, doesn’t really go with the new look.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.
