^^ You're right to identify the parallels. However, there are some major differences between now and then. The largest being that the stakes are actually important today. Back then, it was just plot plot plot and now it is emotionally-charged, compelling story being told. Second, the supporting cast of characters is on their game, unlike back then when everyone was on auto-pilot. Third, production values have improved to the point where it seems like we're watching cinema when back then an episode of Mighty Morph'n Power Rangers had better production quality.
To say the show is the same is crazy-talk. The show is taking risks and rising to the challenges that its faced with (elimination from all existence). And if nothing else, they are producing the best acted, writen, directed, plotted, and fundamentally compelling version of Days of our Lives in well over 20 years, maybe ever.
