These Are the Soapy Components of Our Lives
Are you watching Days right now? If not, you are missing out. Especially if you are not watching Days and are watching GH. I don't think I could continue on with soap-watching if I didn't have Days to balance out GH right now. Take yesterday's episode; it had virtually every component of good soapiness. (Bonus: No Marlena!)
Classic supercouple, threatened by secrets from when she thought he was dead!
Batshit crazy interloper!
((((((Mary Beth Evans' late-80s bangs))))))
Upstanding citizen struck down by tragic yet undefined Very Serious Illness!
Hot, scruffy, somewhat mysterious newcomer. Note: Does not kill people for a living. In fact, is a doctor!
Victor to Lexie: We all know what a wonderful physician you are.
Couple in marriage of convenience, wife trying not to fall for husband, flirting like teenagers!
Obviously erroneous plot point! (Annoying, but totally soapy!)
EJ: My visa's expired. It never occurred to me that they could kick me out the country.
Perhaps it never occurred to him because EJ was born in Salem (U.S.A.), to a U.S. citizen mother? And presumably a U.S. citizen father, since otherwise wouldn't Stefano have been deported by now?
Sami: Can't you just use the fact that your son is an American and you're married to me to get you a visa?
Or he could use the fact that he is an American citizen to get around ever needing a visa. I swear, this better be some lie on EJ's part to stay married to Sami, because otherwise I'm going to do a Day's Dumbest Dialogue about this every single day that they even mention it.
I threw in that last thing both because it did really annoy me and because the gushiness of this post was otherwise threatening to ruin my reputation. But to be honest, I can't promise these outbursts of positivity won't continue to happen with regularity. Talk to the Days powers-that-be. It's their fault! Thank goodness I still have GH.
