Days of Our Lives Fodder

Days of Our Lives: Patch is Baaaaack!

So, ever since I heard that Steve (aka "Patch") would be making the scene again I've been seriously psyched. My grandmother has watched DoOL pretty much since it began in the 60's and whenever I was on Christmas break or summer vacation I would watch with her, but it was often hard for me at age 5 to discern who was who. (I referred to John Black as "Jeff" because at the time he looked exactly like my Uncle Jeff. Looking back, I have no idea what I was thinking.) But the three people I always could remember were Bo (duh), Viktor (bad guys are easy) and Patch. I mean, the dude wore a patch and it was also his name - brilliant! I had no idea how they were going to work him back in, but today we found out. Jack, sick and feverish, recognizes the voice of the orderly who is helping him drink some water. Shocked, he realizes it's his brother and starts calling out "Steve", who responds with only a JB-like squint (with one eye, mind you - aren't you so relieved he still has the patch??) but we all know it's him! Hurraaaaaah!

So I had originally thought that low-talking bad cop chick was going to hurt/maim/kill Bo when she was sneaking around at the station yesterday, but I guess she was just using his ID to steal the tape. Not sure how Bo's gonna get out of this one...(and yes, seriously - how ludicrous of a premise that there is but ONE copy of this super-important video?)

I feel bad for Kristian Alfonso because at this point all of her dramatic, tension-filled, teary performances are just seeming like old hat. Taken alone each one would be impressive, but at this point I pretty much just turn down the volume. Is the trial going to be filled with them? They're not going to let her testify over and over again are they?

Do we think Lexie really has cancer? Maybe Alex was really just messing with Sami, making her all frantic about the "fake" test results, when she really was cancer-free. We shall see.

Mimi can't lose this baby. When she testifies about Claire's paternity at Chelsea's trial, she needs to be fully, hugely pregnant to add to the drama.

Is this true what you tell me about Doc and JB taking a leave?? Say it ain't so, friends, say it ain't so!

Between the low-talking cop and the judge who can't recall the word "police", Salem's legal system is in shambles. I'm fairly certain that they just pulled that guy off the street to play the judge. I had noticed a day or two earlier that Kate was playing the pronoun game regarding the as-yet-unnamed judge, referring to him/her only in the neuter gender. Seems like they didn't even know whether they were casting a man or a woman until they shot the episode! And dude clearly was not even off-book...

I hope Lexie doesn't find out she has cancer. I hope she discovers that she's contracted an STD from manslut Tek. I'm fairly certain the tests wouldn't be the same for both conditions in real life but in Salem, anything is possible.

ooooh yeah. this trial is gonna last a long, long time. i have so many irks, and we're only one day into it.

there's already a scandal with kate, low-talker cop, and bo! and nevermind that there's only ONE copy of the evidence video!!!! ACK! mindnumbing.

how is it that everyone is this tiny little courtroom is able to have constant idle chit-chat and whispering without the judge flipping out and holding them in contempt?? plus everyone walking in and out of there in the middle of the trial...only in salem.

i have to agree with you about hope. it's hard to feel bad for someone who constantly plays the 'cry for me' game in EVERY scene! between that and her Skeletor Death Glares (her secret weapon) at the bo/billie/chelsea clan, i've grown so bored with Not-So-Fancy Face.

the thing that's been bugging me the absolute most since the zach saga started:
whyyyyy hasn't the family whose house he was staying at that night been charged with anything????? they haven't even been mentioned!!! it seems like they could be in as much trouble as chelsea is right now, like criminal negligence, or something. UGH! that just kills me!

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it odd that a blank dvd would play static? It's not a video tape! A blank dvd would play a solid blank screen with the player either telling you it was an invalid dvd or, at best, a blank dvd.

i forgot to mention, amy, regarding how you used to remember the names of the characters when you were little:

when my boyfriend and i got together 3 years ago, it was inevitable that he'd end up watching Days with me. but he could never keep the names in order! so, he'd just end up giving certain people his own nicknames.

sami - dumi
lucas - pukas
kate - MILF
nicole - hot drunk
mimi - 'the' hot one
hope - dope
bo - slow
austin - annoying
belle - nu-belle
will - emo kid
abe - impotent
lexi - 'i hate lexi'
tek - wreck

Help! I was out of town for work and my husband neglected to tape two of the episodes of Days for me this week. Does anyone know where I can get this weeks episodes??? I wrote the show but apparently they don't sell video. I need to get it. Thanks.
