A Critic’s Review Of Days of our Lives: Dueling Dates & Scary Women

The author’s opinions on Days of our Lives are his and his alone. They’re suitably scathing, fairly humorous, and normally bang on target.

When it comes to Days of our Lives, every fan has their own opinion – and Soap Hub is no different. For five days we sat and watched the good, the bad, and everything in between, and now we offer you a handy review, and a cheeky critique, of the Days of our Lives week that was.

Days of our Lives: The Critic Calls Shenanigans

I have it on very good authority that the most fantastical thing to occur on this week’s Days of our Lives — yes, even more so than the goings on Heaven/Purgatory/Asgard/Narnia/Where have you — was EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) snagging a reservation at The Bistro on Valentine’s Day.

Speaking of, though I did get a kick of the ridiculousness that was EJ and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Sloan’s (Jessica Serfaty) dueling dinner date, I couldn’t help but wish that it had been a tad more farcical and gone on for much longer. Those few scenes did little more than whet my appetite.

Further DAYS Musings

* Dang Jennifer Rose (Cady McClain)! You scary when you want to be! Also, loath as I usually am for characters –especially the female ones — to resort to physical violence during confrontations, I really wouldn’t have minded Jennifer walloping Gwen (Emily O’Brien) good and proper. Lord knows the schemer has it coming, and Abigail’s (Marci Miller) no longer around to dish a smack or two out.

* I just adore Anna (Leann Hunley). That is all.

What do you think? Post a comment!

* Good News: Will (Chandler Massey) learns that Sonny (Zach Tinker) and Arianna Grace will be joining him in New Zealand…. Bad News: Allie (Lindsay Arnold) invites herself and her toddler son along for the adventure.

* Irony of Ironies: Alex (Robert Scott Wilson) is betrayed by the one cell phone that he should have silenced — his own!

* Lucas, Lucas, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo). Leave it to an alcoholic to deliver such a piss-poor drunk man routine. Is it any wonder that Orpheus (George DelHoyo) wasn’t sold?

* You know, at this point I’m kind of rooting for Gabi/Li rather than Gabi/Stefan. Am I alone in this?
