As I have mentioned a few times in my videos, I am a fan of Days of our Lives. I'm actually mad at my schedule for this semester, because I have class during my soap opera for two days in a row. Rrrrgh!
Recently, the show has had a couple of major unexpected plot twists, like Anna being the person who kidnapped EJ and Sami's baby (Anna hasn't been on the show in at least six months, which is why this was a big surprise), then the fact that EJ is paying Anna to kidnap his baby, and the big reveal that Carly's daughter is Melanie, not Mia. I'm impressed. When you're working with month-long plotlines, it's rather tough to keep things fresh, but they're doing it successfully. Major kudos to the entire Days of our Lives crew.
[Side note: One of my favorite new characters is Mia McCormick. When she first came on the show, I decided to become a Mia fanboy, mostly because I love Mia Fey from the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series, and the two of them have the exact same name. The only downside to her is the fact that the girl who plays Mia isn't a very good actress. But Mia is currently dating Will Horton, who is ALSO a pretty bad actor, so it works pretty well.]
[Side note #2: Speaking of bad actresses, Anna is really bad at acting, but she's just so darn enthusiastic that she pretty much steals every scene she's in. Seeing her return to the show was basically my best Christmas present last year.]
I just noticed that Days is currently on Season #44. Awesome! It kinda bugs me that The Simpsons brag so much about making it to Season #20 and being "the longest running show ever". I mean, Days of our Lives has been on the air much longer! You shouldn't just ignore it because it's a soap opera! In the same way, you shouldn't ignore Sesame Street just because it's a children's show. Please try to be a little bit more considerate, Simpsons.
