Tired of the Same Old Storylines – Ready for EJAMI

The new/old writing team seems to have a thing for repeating past storylines.  I can’t be the only viewer who has been feeling a sense of déjà vu as of late.  MARDAR had clearly moved us away from some of the old tired storylines and were taking us in a forward motion, towards something bigger and better… then when they were let go, it was as if someone  had taken the show and stuck it in a time machine… straight back to the past.

Suddenly, couples who had been finished with each other, were suddenly feeling sparks again, people who had made decisions finally, were back to waffling… Characters who had finally begun to start being true to their character were back to acting like someone else… Things that have happened more than once in Salem were happening all over again, only with different characters… The same old tired love triangles are back at it again… playing all sides, instead of choosing ONE couple and sticking to it.

When are the powers that be, going to get it?  The viewers have already been there, done that and gotten BORED silly watching it… We want new fresh stories, true tales of love overcoming all obsticles and to see that one couple that has been teased, but never really given a chance…. EJAMI.   We have more than earned our “lock stock and barrel” and it’s time Corday followed through on his promises to us for a change.

Who knows… when and if he ever does, he might just see what we’ve been telling him this whole time… EJAMI is where the ratings and numbers are at.

It wouldn’t hurt to either get a new set of writers in there, or force the ones we already have to come up with some original stuff, though.   Because watching something that we’ve already watched once before is no way to keep us watching.   Just sayin….  What can it possibly hurt to listen?  So far, not listening has only brought you to the lowest ratings the show has ever seen… it’s time to turn on your listening ears and give the GA what they’re clammering for already… and enough with the teasing of all fan bases… EJOLE and SAFE have both been tried… again and again, they’ve been given real chances.. and each time, it has flopped big time with the viewers. Why? Those couples are BORING… or puke enducing… which ever explanation you find more to your liking… I know there are a FEW who like them… but the numbers that don’t have proven to be higher than those who do.  Don’t believe me?  Check out the ratings slump when those couples were together, verses when they weren’t.   There is no denying it.  So I ask you… why keep trying?

      I am so FREAKING SICK of EJAMI bull crap it’s tiring, old and quite disgusting really. It really is time to get over it!!! What is wrong with NEW…there is nothing wrong with RAFE in the story line and Sami finally happy with him and some action happening there. EJ needs somebody else to make things exciting with him…his story line is getting boring FALLING ALL OVER SAMI… as hot as he is…STILL, he needs to be with somebody else who seems to suits him! I have NO IDEA where your getting the ratings..but I don’t bother watching the show when I see EJ and Sami starting to suck face….THAT’S PUKE ENDUCING!

      • Susie says:

        The author is right, the ratings are through the roof when EJ and Sami are in a relationship, they are very hot together. What’s wrong with Rafe? Well, the only thing exciting about him at all was when the evil Rafe was there. He is so boring and two-faced, he expects Sami to play by the rules and not be who she is. EJ accepts her for who she is and does not try to change her into something she is not. Just sayin…..

      • Lori says:

        I agree totally. Sami and Rafe should stay togather. Ej needs to find someone else. Rafe and Katie that makes me sick.

      Sorry..this comment is not a reply to Michelles…this was my own comment….so sorry if I mixed them up

      EJami is the dynamite couple on DOOL if tptb would only let them be written that way! JS and AS bring it to the table whenever they’re on screen together! Come on DOOL, let them be together at last!

    • Kelley Starr says:

      I’m sick of failed relationships for Sammi, Its time for a fresh story line ! Sick of this repeating the same old shit. Let Sammi have a lasting Marriage. Her an EJ have a real fiery passion. Let them have a long Sexy Marriage. Lets pick on Kate for a while, She deserves a little Karma for her sins

    leave it alone

    I am so sick of seeing Sonny and Will in bed kissing, and crawling all over each other. I have to turn my head or mute it. I think Days is going way too far with this relationship. I can’t stand when they are all over each other in public places! YUCK!!

    • dlbr says:

      I ALWAYS skip Will & Sonny.
      I don’t care what “society” supposedly wants to make normal.
      This isn’t what I (and many others) want to see on TV.

    I have been watching Days since it started. I am 63. She is soooo right! I can,t believe you put her with Rafe …again? Big mistake. You need to get Sami back with EJ

    Ej and Sami are fun to watch as they have a tremendous chemistry together. He is powerful and a bad boy and Sami is a wild cat. We need more powerful and more wild cat out of both characters. I wanna see Ej and Sami Collide into a wild romance and then fight often only to make up, Rafe needs to be with Nichole as she is a wildcat who can be the powerful one in that relationship while the puppy Rafe can be tenderly romantic and Nichole can be a bit sadistic to him but these couple need to get together and stay together. Oh and Daniel and Jennifer are boring together. She is to tame and steady for Daniel. Daniel needs to be with Chloe who can love him and hurt him at the same time, and Parker, he don’t even look like either on of them and has no personality like Johnny did at that age. Just my opinion that’s all.

    • Sharon Louise says:

      I meant to say Johnny is an awesome actor as Ej’s son. While parker is just boaring he brings nothing extra to the show.

  7. Shawna says:

    I agree with Faith who wrote this article 100%. EJ and Sami make sparks and are fun and exciting to watch. Rafe and Sami are as a couple boring… (beer and sandwiches 24/7? Please! :P ). Rafe is nice to look at but boring as a character and no matter hot his role has been changed up, he is still boring and can’t hold a candle to EJ. If the ratings are higher with EJ and Sami as a couple (and I can see why…) , Why in the World wouldn’t you take that and run with it????

    For heaven’s sake, what is boring and done over and over is the constant return to EJ trying to bed Sami. Lies, manipulations, the whole 9 yards. Wash, rinse, repeat.
    EJ and Sami have been done to death. Or maybe it is just Sami constantly saying….but he is changed……he is the father of two of my children, blah, blah, yada, yada, and then the smirk on EJ’s face as he once more succeeds in pulling the wool over Sami’s eyes.
    Thought she had grown up, matured, but that is not to be. And don’t forget Sami, you have two children by Lucas, too. Tho we rarely get to see Allie, poor child. She is shoved aside, like Sydney.
    Sami is a lousy mother, a lousy wife, a lousy girlfiend, and a terrible head of whatever job she is supposed to be doing currently.
    She turned her back on the best thing that ever happened to her besides Lucas, and that was Rafe, and instead continues to worship at EJ’s feet. Truly disgusting and FF worthy.
    Yes, the EJ/Sami merry go round has been done to death.

    • Inez says:

      I agree with you lilspoiler 2 I think Sami is the Salem HO and she’s evil and mean she deserves to be hurt,Rafes to good for her.I love Nichole I wish her happiness,they need to let us know about Bo and please get rid of that Nick he’s trouble for sure.I love Sonny and Will but to much man on man action on daytime tv,my grandchildren won’t watch it with me anymore.Ive been watching days since the beginning,I guess I always will

  9. dlbr says:

    I think that to say that EJAMI is the way to go is WRONG!
    EJ will never change. Sami wants to change and we need a new power couple.
    SAFE is the route to go! I’m still wanting more of Rafe & Sami!!!!!

  10. Donna says:

    I kind of like EJ and Sami and Daniel and Jennifer but most of the rest of it I have to fast forward. I hate Nick and he is a terrible actor to boot. I like Nicole but don’t watch the Kristen and Brady scenes. I don’t mind the relationship of Sonny and Will but I am over the bedroom scenes they seem to show more of them both literally and figuratively that the hetero couples, don’t think that helps the ratings. These writers are the worst they have ever had and I have been watching off and on since the beginning! C’mon writers stop insulting our intelligence and making us feel stupid for watching in the first place,if I have to cut any more out I won’t be watching at all!
