    I too am a DOOL watcher...

    I watch it off and on...

    The great thing about it is that you miss 6 months real time and then watch an episode and it seems like 4 days have gone by! :D :D :D :D :D
    I haven't watched in a while. My wife has FF thru many episodes so I see bits and pieces.

    For a while, we would set the TiVo to save 5 episodes and watch the whole weeks worth on Friday or Saturday night.

    I used to watch this show back in the 80's when I was in college. My wife continued to record it on VHS until the mid 90's, then we took about 5 years off. When I got TiVo three years ago, my wife started recording it again and I have been watching most of the episodes since then.

    It's about time that Kate got caught. It will be interesting if the show will ever let anything actually go Sami's way.

    Also ... don't tell anyone I actually watch this show :)

    I recorded it religiously for about 24 years but I just go to where I couldn't stomach it anymore. I would turn it on then go into another room to get on the computer and just listen to it. I have turned it on SoapNet a couple of times out of curiousity. What is wrong with Jack? Is it the Hodgkin's?

    <booming announcer voice>mgar does not watch DOOL. Repeat... mgar does not watch DOOL.</booming announcer voice> There, that'll keep the naysayers at bay. for a while.

    I also FF thru the Belle scenes - lately no matter who she's talking to... but, if I see anew 'new' facial expressions I will stop to double check I'm not missing something important. Not sure what that would be - but I don't want to miss it, just in case. ;)

    BeanMeScot - we do not know what's really wrong with Jack. He's dying and has very little time. They haven't gotten any more specific that I know of... but, I may have missed it. I don't get to watch every day - but I never FF thru a Jack scene.

    I know it!! What is with her... I have never seen - even in crazy soap world - anyone who is actually the center of the universe, not just thinks she is - but is absolutely certain of it. Well, her and her kids. I am just so tired of her. I couldn't stand she and John together either - my gosh - is this a competition to see who can be more dramatic?

    I'm so glad you all responded to my thread!! I love laughing about these people and this show in general. But, I still can't stop watching. I've been watching off and on since High School. My grandmother watched it every day - and would keep me up-to-date during the school year (until we finally got a VCR) - it was such fun for she and I to gab about these crazy folks.

    Nobody really knows what is wrong with Jack - HOWEVER, a lot of the people that were held on the island have come up with strange health "issues"....Marlena's pregnancy (again, at the age of 60ish?), Abe goes blind and is impotent, Jack is dying; are there others?

    Sobello - funny story about grannys and Days - for years, my grandmother took care of my feeble, senile great aunt. One day, Grandma had been out working in the garden and came in to find Aunt Ida sitting in the chair sobbing. Grandma anxiously asks what's wrong, etc. Aunt Ida tells her she just found out Maggie's baby died! My grandmother is trying to calm her down and finally says, "Who is Maggie?" Character on her soap!!! My grandmother told that story for years! :D

    Based on how this show works, I would bet that Jack's illness is related to his stay on the island. His death may be just another fake death masterminded by Demira.

    Alright, my wife watches every minute of every show since forever and I think the first time Tivo got whole week and we could stop taping it, she was sold. So, I, via osmosis sort of know what's going on (possessed Marlena was the best! Whoops, out the window you go!) but this must be like the 3rd time that Jack is dying/dead. And John Black and the "face", one of his two looks, the other being nothing. Ya just gotta laugh!

    I've been watching DOOL for about 15 years. Daily.

    Why all the hatin' on Austin Peck? I love him (moreso w/ his shirt off) and I'm glad he's coming back. I do not like when Sami's happy... we need Austin to get in the way of her and Lucas. And will someone please tell Lucas to get rid of that ridiculous mustache!!!

    Patrick bugs me... just because his story is so annoying. He doesn't really serve a purpose.

    I love seeing Frankie back but I fear they're underutilizing him just like they did with Lisa Rinna 2 years or so ago.

    Belle's baby BETTER not be Shawn's since they slept together during an ice storm! Stupid. But, hey, if her mom can have miracle pregnancies! :) I watch the Belle/Shawn scenes but only because I love Jason Cook (Shawn).

    I have no idea where the story with Alex North is going but I love seeing Wayne Northrup back again. The scene a few days ago with Marlena waking up all ALL THREE "Romans" were there was awesome!!!

    Didn't Lexie confirm that his Hodgkins had returned? Or are we only sure that it's a 'neuroligical condition' at this time?

    I don't think anyone has a problem with Austin Peck(s) but moreso as the way Austin Reed was written.

    Ask, and ye shall receive. Mustache gone.

    You're absolutely right about Patrick. He's never had a reason for being on the canvas. They tried to make us believe he was going after Jennifer, but she never waivered in her love for Jack.

    Nice to have Frankie back, and love, Love, LOVE Wayne Northrup back.

    The pregnancy is the best, especially if they make it out to be Shawn's. It's bad enough as you said it was the dead of winter when they got stranded, but Phil and Belle got married on New Years. He shipped out days later (actually it turned out to be months, but why quibble.) She should be at least 7 months along. Belle says the other day, "I can't believe I'm not showing". Well Belle, we can't believe it either!!!

    Oh yea, I forgot they got married on New Years. Well then, I guess as long as it's equally improbable for either to be the father, it's OK. ;)

    It's just like when they were wondering who was the father of J.T./Issac/Zach.
    Is it John or Stefano?
    (and it turns out to be Beau)

    Hahah... I always think the same thing. I work in a heavily male dominated field, and I have a few girly vices like Days that I can never share with anyone!

    And now you can share it with us starbreiz!

    We haven't talked about poor, scarred, and still incredibly beautiful, Chloe. C'mon - she needs a grip more than anyone. She told Brady he might lose his job if he married her. Huh? Didn't get that one.

    Did you hear Tony say today that he's already got some things going on 'remotely' with Marlena, John, and Roman. Sooo we might be onto something about orig. Roman working with or for the Dimera's. Hmm.

    Oh, and I actually watched Belle and Philip today - as she went off on him for suggesting that Mimi and Shawn might get together. Good ole brain surgeon Philip hardly blinked. ;) Sheesh, to be so unaware of the people around you.

    So, did Belle get pregnant sleeping w/ Philip when he returned? or is this pregnancy supposed to have ocurred before he shipped out? I had not thought at all of the latter until you all mentioned it. That would make it plausible - soap style - for it to be Shawn's baby. Very interesting!

    Now that I've got an outlet for my internal chatter on this crazy show - looks like I've watched it every day. Good thing TiVo makes it only a 20 minute show. :)

    Belle and Phillip haven't slept together since he's returned... due to his missing leg and recovery and all...

    Aha... well, then looks like we've only got to wait for someone to get suspicious... of course, does either of them remember sleeping together? B & S, I mean.

    Also - thanks for the triple Roman cwoody! That's great!
