Thread: So answer me this John & Marlena fans?

    Re: So answer me this John & Marlena fans?

    I think that this is an unfair use of the word important. Your comparing the value of your favorite character to the worth of a good story. The ratings are going up. We are seeing our favorites on screen. And the story is interesting. Atleast it has my attention. I feel it's more important to see a good story done well by whomever, than a bad story written just to keep my favorites central to the plot. If done right I can see the potential in this one to actually pull many of the past DiMera storylines together in a way that I don't think many people have even considered. Everyone who has ever been a part of it (including John) could be deeply effected by whatever happens here, leaving room for some very powerful must see scenes.

I think J&M have a lot more story to tell, but I think at this point, their interactions with their families are the best ones to work with. Let them be together, helping their families and working on adventures together.
    Sorry, but Tom and Alice were NEVER a supercouple.LOL

They dominated for years and I can't imagine what else there is to cover besides cancer or terminal illness'. Has breast cancer or other cancer's been covered in this show? From the time I've watched (1992-now), I don't remember cancer
    I don't want to see a cancer story. How depressing. I watch Days for romance and adventure. And sorry that you seem to think J&M are ready for terminal cancer stories. Although you do know that people of all ages get cancer, right?

    But of course I know that - all too well actually. However, I think Deidre is the one woman on this show who would rock that storyline and get awards for it. My comment was saying they are the only ones who could do it and move people.

    Very refreshing statement! I, too, see a lot of hope for the show and am currently enjoying it. I love that more characters are being used and see many possibilities. We are the odd ones out on this however Anyway, keep enjoying Days - I know I am!
