I am however sick of the notion that this show is in the toilet because of everything the writers are doing to try to put EJ and Sami together and somehow Lucas gets a free pass from this mess. Even if EJ does get more screentime because he's a more interesting character, I don't see this as the show doing everything to put EJ and Sami together despite whatever spoilers may be out there about the babies now. This is Lumi's shitty story with EJ and Kate as angst props for them and its Hogan's misguided notion that these Lucas and Sami are twu wuv 4 ever superdupersupercouple material whose problems need to be shoved down our throat day after day that has everything so fucking fucked. IMO.

IA with you on that, and apologize for that too. I love EJ and Sami and think they are by far a more compelling couple than Lumi ever could be. Lumi's foundation came out of convenience, they both wanted their sibling's lovers. That's it. With Ej and Sami there was something much more complex and both characters had, and still do have, amazing chemistry. But IMO the show has ruined it, not only with the repetitive airtime but the stupid vendetta SL. Soaps come across characters that click all the time yet you don't see them retracking history to put them together. Look at Maxie and her bf, the chemistry that they shared during the shoot out SL led the show to make him a major character and bring them together. He didn't end up being her lover from 1000 years ago, or Felicia's long lost nephew. The whole contrived twist made me like Ejami much less. DAYS, according to many people, has been trying to go back to roots and keep traditional ideals alive, but this throwback to history has been so faux if not stupid.

Oh no need to apologize, Ridge. :lol: I agree with you that this whole vendetta storyline has made EJami less desirable rather than moreso because of how convoluted it all is and the way that it's twisted the characters of EJ and Sami into knots where they are hardly recognizable, at least for me, half the time.

It's the exact opposite for me. During most of those years, DAYS was unwatchable to me.

Me to. Especially that Serial Killer mess. I mean seriously that wasn't good in the slightest and I will never understand why ratings went up. Everything about that was bad, the writing, the acting. I did stop watching daily and that was when I picked up AMC and then got into OLTL as well.

I agree, jcar. I hated the Salem Stalker fiasco, and I'll never understand why it was so popular, but whatev. 2000-2001 and 2003-2005 were truly horrible years for DAYS, in my book.

I can definitely understand why the show has lost so many viewers it has sucked for over a year. I think John's death is going to give the show a small rise but once it's totally over the show will lose all those that tuned in and have hung around waiting for what was promised a John and Marlena fb storyline.

:lol:

I got sick of DOOL around the time of the triplets mess and only watched sporadically during the summers that followed and quit watching DOOL entirely when I went away to college, but tuned back in when I heard Marlena was a serial killer because it was such an outrageous thing.

*ducks*

But seriously, if it wasn't for the Salem Stalker storyline I probably never would have tuned back into DOOL again.
