One of My Favorite Soap OperasRating: 3 likes, 0 dislikes
I've been watching Days for as long as I can remember. When I was little, I watched it with my grandmother and have been watching it on and off ever since. Luckily, as with any soap, it's easy to miss a week or so but catch back up in a matter of episodes.
The story lines, for the most part, are awesome. They're always full of twists and turns, relationship issues, and tons of drama. Sure some of the story lines are completely outrageous and not actually possible in real life -- Marlena being possessed, etc. -- but that's what makes a good soap opera. Throughout the years the story lines have had ups and downs (anyone remember Shawn locked in a cage for 6 months?? -- low-light of the series, no doubt), but the show is definitely on the up once again with the return of the DiMeras, reigniting the infamous Brady-DiMera feud.
After watching Days for over 10 years, the lives of those in Salem begin to feel like an extension of your own family and friends. You live and die by their latest issues, relationships and drama. And who doesn't light up when Alice makes an appearance?
All in all, Days continues to be one of my favorite soaps, through all the oddball story lines and love-triangles. And after 10 years of keeping up with the show, it doesn't look like I'll stop watching any time soon.
