JJ shooting Theo has impacted every part of the Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) canvas, which is the definition of a good umbrella story. But it’s also been painful and tragic to watch. Do fans feel the agony has been worth it?
Over 11,000 daily viewers let us know:
Tough Enough To Overstuff
So tough to watch, but so worth it, praise 46% of you. This is exactly the sort of stuff that soaps do well, family drama, friend against friend, medical crises, secret double-crosses (we’re looking at you, Kate) and multiple generations all interacting.
This is how you do a story with far-reaching consequences!
It’s the Actors, Stupid
It’s great seeing Emmy-nominee James Reynolds (Abe) finally receive material worthy of his talents, say 31% of the audience, and thrilling to witness Sal Stowers (Lani) step up to the plate in her performances, as well.
Plus, Theo’s (Kyler Pettis) shooting by JJ (Casey Moss) created story for Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), Valerie (Vanessa Williams), Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan), Kate (Lauren Koslow), Andre (Thao Penglis), and Tripp (Dalton Adams).
Not On My Show
Save it for the news, urge 13% of fans. Stories like this are all too common, and soaps are supposed to be a daily escape from the real world. You know cops shooting kids, is a problem. But, for one hour a day, you’d like to not know it.
It’s tedious and like being beaten over the head, dismiss 9% of you, hitting the fast-forward button for all its worth. All that crying, all that soul-searching, it gets really old, really fast.
Soaps are supposed to be about love in the afternoon, so unless a love story comes out of this – and a good one, not those teeny-boppers, Claire and Tripp – the whole thing will have been a giant waste of time.
