Suzanne Oberman, the advertising layout coordinator at the Palm Beach Daily News, is a HUGE Days of our Lives fan.
She’s been watching Days, she says, “since probably in the womb.”
In her second appearance here at Soapbox, Suzanne is going to give us an assist today and offer her commentary as our guest blogger.
“Days” Is Bringing Stupid Back
Looks like the writers have put their big guns back in the closet and have swapped them for water guns.
Days Of Our Lives has been a bit silly lately.
It seems as though serial date rapist Ford Decker met his end with a laughable tumble down the sorority house stairs.
After drugging Chelsea (Rachel Melvin), Ford chased her up the stairs while her sorority sisters yelled for him to stop. He felt woozy since the inane girls put a drug in his drink and he stumbled backwards and fell to the floor.
Amazingly he died instantly – a ridiculous scenario at best.
For hours the girls sat in a circle around Ford’s body on the foyer floor and thought about his horrendous ways; while whining about what they were going to do about the situation. And now Max is supposedly going to bury him somewhere under the basement floor.
Can’t wait to see where this leads…
And seriously, what are those absurd dreams Philip (Jay Kenneth Johnson) is having about Belle (Martha Madison)?
A normally demure Belle Black (now Brady), is shown wearing a short red dress with bright red lipstick all gussied up in Philip’s office. She tells him in each setting that she loves him and not Shawn and has finally told Shawn her true feelings. Philip continues not to believe her even though she is throwing herself at him.
In what one might call a purely comical soap opera moment, Belle enters Philip’s office with a bloody meat cleaver and tells him she killed Shawn so the two of them can finally be together.
Let’s be honest, what were the writers thinking?
Even though the recent stupidity on Days has made me cringe, I still need my fix everyday.
I just hope the stories get a little less ridiculous and a little more scandalous-they way we like them!

    Suzanne,
    Great insight on Days. I keep waiting for the script to get better and I hope it will be soon. I have been watching Days since the beginning and it has really changed. Thanks for the great blogging.

  3. Love the lead. “Looks like the writers have put their big guns back in the closet and have swapped them for water guns” is really funny and true. I used to watch Days in college, and they have a tradition of really out there story lines.
