Don't have much to say about the April Fool's episode. I didn't hate it, but, same as last year, I feel that it's just unnecessary.

Days is the only soap that pretty much since that hasn't changed since they came back from the shutdown. Honestly, I think that's very brave of them

 

I agree that Days is the only soap that seems the same.  I do like everyone feels comfortable enough to continue interacting like they did pre-pandemic.

 

I may be a party of one and say I liked the April Fool's episode.  It's unnecessary, for sure, but I liked some of the nods to history (especially the Shawn/Jan, John/Sami stuff).  It's silly and low brow, but I enjoyed it.  The only part I disliked was the Steve/Kayla stuff.

That April Fool's episode made we want to hide in shame for watching it; poor Carolyn Culliton gets most of these one off fantasy scripts.  I wouldn't want any credit.  Baaaaad, gurl.

Yeah, it's like they tried to make her look younger but they messed up lol

 

I thought it was a pretty good episode overall though. I don't, for a second, think that Tripp is guilty and Mike Manning deserves an Emmy for sure

The less said about the April Fool's episode, the better. Same with Nicole's hair today.

 

Did we know Michael Lowry was joining DAYS as a doctor or is he just a day player? I was surprised to see him.

It's supposed to be "bad". LOL. I thought it was great. To each their own. It was better than a lot of actual episodes they shovel out.

Wally tweeted a pic of him and Judi, and Suzanne was in the background, but I'm not sure if this an a new or an old pic.

 

Ahh, ok.

It was announced only a few days before he aired

This Claire doesn’t seem like she’d set someone on fire (twice), true.

 

They are doing a decent job moving Chanel around town. If this were Y&R, she’d still be in Devon’s apartment.

Chanel's interacting with a drunken Xander. At the tiny park bench. I wasn't expecting that.

Are they really going to go there with Xander and Chanel?

 

And the more I think about Abby and the way that she's been lately, the more I think that isn't really Abby, and that another alter came out somehow.

    • There is some stuff for me to nitpick here: * The Wes Parmalee story was definitely a misfire but did it really matter in the scheme of things? Even in its best days, the show had its fair share of dud stories; Dallas for better or for worse wasn't a well-plotted show (much better than Dynasty, mind you). You tuned in because it had great characters. * Killing Bobby was the mistake. Boy, did Duffy f*** up there.  But, yeah, the dream was... a bold choice. That I could have almost accepted if they had been coherent how they tied the loose ends. But it was a last minute bit of cleverness and they clearly hadn't thought the follow-up through. Any fan can list the long list of things that were left over from "before the dream" that it made no sense not to be addressed again if the dream season was a dream. * I personally think Kristin was a powerful character when she was on but her value would have dwindled over time and I am not upset she was written out. I do not agree she had years of stories in her although they could have kept her alive and sprung her for a surprise revenge later (typically the kind of character it would have been fun to bring back for the lead-up to a JR comeuppance finale). * I don't think Jenna was a well-written character but she provided a useful obstacle for Pam/Bobby and I was OK with that. And the minute you accept a different actress playing the same character, you have to suspend disbelief as to the inconsistencies with the earlier tale. It wasn't absurd to revisit it and it was quickly resolved so ... fine. Again, Dallas wasn't that good at plotting but the character interaction worked in the grand scheme of the Pam/Bobby story. * Lucy was useless from Day One.
    • I like Gizelle too! But I also love Karen. Their banter is A+. I pretty much can find something to enjoy with everyone on Potomac (yes, even Candiace). One thing: the RHOP women are ALL skilled fighters. There’s not a shrinking violet in the bunch.   Beverly Hills is (almost) the opposite for me, which is why I won’t be watching. I just don’t find these women likable. At all. It’s unpleasant as a viewer. Those first 2-3 seasons (and select later moments like Amsterdam) were brilliant, though.
    • I am half of mind to start a "soap plot points from the 80s-90s that wouldn't fly today" thread  and yeah, that definitely would make the list.
