Viewing Single Post From: DR Countdown: Most Romantic Moments

Love the list. I'm glad my campaigning paid off. ;) While S&K will always be #1 in my heart, even I won't dispute that Bo rescuing Hope from her wedding should be #1 on this list. It truly is an iconic moment -- not just for Bope, or for Days, but for soap operas in general.

And I think it says something that so many of these moments came from 20-30 years ago. Only two couples (Lumi and Ejami) are from anything in the last 10 years and even those two were from several years ago. I hope the show pays attention to this list to see what makes for memorable romantic moments.

But I also hope they realize that the reason these moments were memorable is because of all the things that came before it -- the angst, the longing, the separations, and tragedies. These moments stand out because the stories pulled us in and made us want these moments as much as those characters did. Without the story, these moments are just moments. Because of the story, they are memorable.
Bingo! You hit the nail right on the head! That is what is missing terribly on Days today.
