I Need a Hero: 80’s Soap Opera Super Couples

Although the best moment is Bo trying to find the door to the church, this is probably the best 10 minutes of drama for a Soap Opera enthusiast, like myself. My daily exposure to Days of Our Lives Super Couples in the 80’s gave me romantic aspirations that are a tad unlikely, and now down-right unfavourable… such as being kidnapped before my wedding (see wicked Bo & Hope clip) or breaking my legs while stranded in a desert island swamp so I could spend time with/ coyly seduce my cantankerous boss (see Jack & Jennifer, Cruise of Deception).

I grew up fantasizing about romantic gestures that are realistically followed by jail time or extensive physiotherapy.

*The Jack/ Jennifer video also includes some 80’s technological advancements, such as a Desktop computer and remote controlled window treatments. For these reasons, I chose that video as a prime example instead of this secondary example of the sensual shenanigans of being shipwrecked. This secondary example shows a daytime appropriate erotic mud massage and the nonchalance of discovering your friends wading nude in a swamp.

God Bless 80’s Super Couples.

This blog is a spot to collect some writing and snaps and drawings! I love classic Days of our Lives, riding my bicycle and 'liking' things on Facebook when I have had too much to drink. xo roxy moss
