Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream/Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily/The Days Of Our Lives time jump is just a dream!
Is that what fans are hoping for? After all, so far, the time jump has brought a dead Adrienne (Judi Evans), Will (Chandler Massey) and Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) in prison, Faux Hope (Kristian Alfonso) going after John (Drake Hogysten), and Kristen (Stacey Haiduk) and Lani (Sal Stowers) in a convent! That sure seems like a nightmare to some!
So are you hoping for Bobby Ewing or, I don’t know, Xander (Paul Telfer) to step out of the shower, and announce that it was all a dream? How over 8,000 time travelers voted:
Make It Go Away, Days of Our Lives
This one giant leap for mankind in serialized storytelling doesn’t seem to be working for about 75% of you. You feel lost, as if you don’t know where you are, or who these people are claiming to be.
Why would Eli (Lamon Archey) go back to Gabi (Camila Banus)? How stupid can Eric (Greg Vaughan) be? Why is JJ (Casey Moss) not washing regularly, and the new manny guy… OK, he’s kind of cool. He’s more like a dream come true. Yeah, that’s it — he’s too perfect! He can’t be real, either! So let’s just pull the plug on this experiment…before viewers cut the cord.
Only 25% of Days of Our Lives fans are excited to be getting to the good parts without having had to sit through all the dull stuff. You are perfectly happy not to have seen a year of Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) boo-hooing about keeping a secret from Eric, or a boring trail for Ben.
If Justin (Wally Kurth) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) must be together, better to just rip off that Band-Aid. OK, show, you’ve got us. Now get on with it, already! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
