I've never understood the appeal of John and Marlena. Yeah, I understand that they're the "faces of the franchise" but I always just saw them as the gross old people who liked to make out. :shrug: They've always been so predictable and boring to me. Even watching old clips on YouTube...yeah it's better than what we have now but there are so many more interesting characters. :peek:
It's probably because you didn't see their story play out. I'm not old, I'm only 39 and I saw their story and I wasn't a Jarlena fan until the 'affair'....boy they rocked the hell out of that story.....and I think it's not the same seeing pieces of the story on youtube. It doesn't do the story justice.
Someone posted this a while ago in one of the threads here at DR and this is by far the best montage I've seen of "The Affair"....
Love it! Fantastic story and acting. I started watching Days around circa 1992-1993 and have watched ever since.
