What’s going on with ‘Days of Our Lives’? A recent article from TV Source described watching the NBC soap opera as ‘a test of one’s patience,’ do other fans feel like that? Are you feeling like the writers need to do more and invest in some watch worthy storylines? ‘DOOL‘ ratings continue to plummet every week and it’s becoming clear that something is just not working.
There was supposed to be a faster move of storylines when the show took a brief hiatus so that the time between filming and airing is not as long as it used to be. However it seems like it hasn’t changed, viewers still have to wait approximately 6 months to see storylines that are currently being teased.
Then the story progression is lacking. When viewers examine some possibly great storylines they ponder why the writers did not invest more into them. For instance, the story of Chase [Jonathon McClendon] having sex with Ciara [Vivian Jovani] without her consent.
This could have turned out to be a major storyline but after Ciara revealed it to her mother Hope [Kristian Alfonso] and Chase was arrested, it seems Days writers shifted focus. Now viewers find, Ciara obsessed with former boyfriends’ Uncle. Is this what viewers really want to see?
Other stars have to be exiting the soap opera because of a lack of storylines. ‘DAYS’ writers really need to think about some compelling stories before there is a need for another writing regime change. Many of the current storylines in progress are a major repeat of history. It’s not only ‘Days of Our Lives’, many of the remaining soap operas are doing it. But, luckily for them they also have some must-watch stories at the same time.
