HomeTVDays of Our LivesDays of Our Lives: Monday’s Episode – WTF? Brooke September 16, 2008 Days of Our Lives, WTF 11 Comments If you haven’t watched yesterday’s (Monday) episode of Days of our Lives yet, let me save you the trouble… You could watch the first and last two minutes and not miss a thing in between. Why? The fans were treated, or subjected in my case, to an almost complete rehash of Nicole’s "film noir" fantasy, that’s why. Now, if you enjoyed this the first time around more power to you, but for me listening to Sami’s high pitched voice was bad enough the first time!! So why the ridiculously long flashback? I’m guessing that this episode was being filmed around the time that Ed Scott was fired from his Executive Producer role. Maybe the planned scenes were scrapped (and replaced with filler) until Head Writer Dena Higley took back control. Whatever… it’s still 40 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. 11 Responses daisyclover1938 September 16, 2008 I missed the first noir nightmare, so now I feel like I *have* to watch Monday’s episode, lol. I’m watching it today during lunch, so I’ll prepare myself for some bad TV Log in to Reply EmmyLoser September 16, 2008 How irritating. I figured they just did it to buy time to get things on order. Last week was borderline awful in parts. Thursday’s show looked terrible. I thought Higley was back in charge as of a couple weeks ago, based on what was on screen. Log in to Reply snags September 16, 2008 I agree with Brooke! What a waste of time! I totally saw that episode in 2 minutes! Snooze! But mentally, I was preparing for the worse as I saw incessant flashbacks last week (snore), which means writer change or backstage turmoil. Since the latter happened already, we’re stuck with bad writing. Sigh… Log in to Reply hrfmom September 16, 2008 So are you saying that this will not be submitted for an emmy? Log in to Reply snowi September 16, 2008 I agree Brooke. Days needs to get their shit together. What was the point of that? It’s turning into the Days of Nicole’s Life and its one boring exsistance. The noir thing was a letdown in the first place, why show it a second time? Log in to Reply Brooke September 16, 2008 daisyclover1938 – watch at own risk!! Don’t say I didn’t warn you LOL EmmyLoser – Ed Scott was still in the credits as Executive Producer on Friday’s episode, but I wasn’t able to check Monday’s to see if he had been taken off or not. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 September 17, 2008 OMG, Brooke you were not kidding! I just watched Monday’s ep…the noir nightmare was really bad. It wasn’t funny…it was pointless and embarrassing. One thing I will say, all the actors look even more gorgeous in B&W Log in to Reply Luke Kerr September 17, 2008 I guess I was the only one who enjoyed it…I didn’t get a chance to watch it the first time because of the Olympics and I thought it was really good. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 September 17, 2008 Luke, Sami’s voice didn’t grate on your nerves? It was like nails on chalkboard to me Log in to Reply snowi September 17, 2008 For me, I thought two days of it was too much. I could have lived with the film noir being just one day. I’m sorry, I’m cranky. I’m on Nicole overload…….this chick is killing Days for me. Log in to Reply Brooke September 17, 2008 I don’t think you were the only one who enjoyed it Luke, you’re just the only one who’s come out and said so here!! After surfing some of the Days boards after the scenes originally aired, there were many supporters… I was just not one of them LOL I agree with you daisyclover, the actors did LOOK awesome!
