Trying To Get Back On Track

We continue to look for a way to get the show in advance of the time it airs in the US. We are exploring every avenue, including trying to find a new Canadian team member to help us get the feed early. We are also looking at the possibility of installing additional satellite equipment and remain hopeful we may be able to find a feed with our existing equipment.

It will probably take a while to get back on track. In the meantime, we'll try to keep you up to date with all the exciting action from Salem. In that vein, here is a quick recap of all the significant action that has taken place since we last posted:

OK, since there has been no significant action, here are some of the other things you might want to know...

On the show that aired on Thursday:

Steve and Caroline get together and make excuses for Kayla being off the show. She's taking a few days off to be with L'il Joe. After that they'll dump him on Maggie, Alice and Caroline.

Steve informs Caroline he has a new website because he's starting a new business, "I'm going to be a private eye. Well, actually one of them is private, the other is undercover."

Melanie informs Max she doesn't like Stephanie. Likewise. But Melanie does think Nick is cute. Max threatens to call Trent when Melanie tells him Tiffany won't drop the charges.

Trent calls Nick. Nick tells him he had to leave town on family business. Trent asks where he is.

Daniel insists it's over with him and Kate. Chelsea doesn't want him to touch, "I just need to think." She catches Theo as he runs from Lexie.

Patch says he doesn't have many marketable skills. Not to many non-marketable skills either. Caroline thinks he'll make a fortune with all the cheating husbands and wives in Salem. Steve tells her he doesn't want that kind of business, "I think I can specialize in working for all the girls whose mothers and grandmothers were hookers and who are out fooling around with their boyfriends. There's a lot of that going on lately." He also tells her, "Kayla is concerned about Stefano. She sleeps with one ear open lately. She has a Patch over the other one."

Max and Melanie continue to argue about him calling Trent. She does a 180 and dares him to call but Tiffany shows up and brings the childishness to a halt.

Patch tells Caroline he is going to be there every step of the way with L'il Joe, "But I could do without the 3AM feedings. I'm never hungry at 3AM." They talk about Max and Stephanie on their trip.

Nick hems, haws and hangs up on Trent.

In the kind of lame coincidence that can only happen in Salem, Trent approaches Patch and asks about PI work. Trent wants him to help find Nick.

Chelsea holds Theo in a vice grip. "Boys can be a handful," says Kate, "When they're with me their hands are usually full." Chelsea offers to take care of Theo. Theo throws a fit and Lexie takes him off. Kate decides they all need to talk. Chelsea can't wait to hear what she has to say about her little romp with Daniel.

Patch and Trent discuss Nick. Trent says he is disturbed by Nick's disappearance, and thinks he could be in Europe... perhaps France. Patch is gruff, "I get two-fifty a day plus expenses."

Trent tells him, "Do a good job and I'll give you $3."

Patch overwhelms us with cheesy PI lingo, "I'll take a check as long as I can't play handball with it." Trent asks about Stephanie and says he knows her.

Tiffany recognizes the famous racecar driver Max Brady. Melanie says Max would like to make things up to her over dinner. Stephanie comes back and Max introduces her as his cousin. Tiffany says she will drop the charges against Max and his cousin Stephanie as long as Max goes out with her.

Daniel claims the thing with Kate was just a fling. Chelsea is insulted by Kate's apology. The audience is insulted by Chelsea's existence.

Max reluctantly agrees to date tiffany. Stephanie blows her stack. Max assures the Tiffster he's ready for their big night out as she bails him out. "Yeah," says a cynical Stephanie, "He was born ready. Melanie taunts.

Lexie asks what's up. Daniel rattles off some information about a patient. Lexie interrupts him, "If there are two things I don't understand it's medicine and patients. I thought maybe you might want to share." Daniel says he isn't big on sharing. He then prepares to share Salem's biggest bombshell and tells her he slept with Kate. Lexie drops her jaw, "WOW!"

Daniel asks, "Glad you asked?"

Trent tells Patch he knows Max, too. Patch says he doesn't like Max very much but he and Max stay out of each other's way. He's philosophical about Stephanie dating Max, "She's still young. Not like she's gonna marry the guy." They trade cards. Patch says he will be in touch.

After Trent leaves, Patch tells Caroline Trent hired him to find Nick. He says he knows they are all in France and says he agreed because this is the best way for him to keep an eye on Stephanie.

Stephanie complains to Nick about Melanie. Max and Tiff sit behind them and Tiffany uses Max for a Jungle Gym.

Max is reluctant to play ball. Tiff says, "I'm not going to jump you in front of your girlfriend, unless you're into threesomes. I'm not trying to steal you. I'm just trying to have some fun." She tells him a secret: she had already decided to drop the charges.

Nick starts to tell Stephanie Trent called but Melanie interrupts.

Daniel says he doesn't want to lose Chelsea, "Kate and I never dated. We just went straight to the monkey sex."

Lexie says Daniel has to tell Chelsea exactly what happened, "Give Chelsea time and maybe you'll get lucky and meet more of her relatives."

Melanie thanks Nick for convincing her to call Tiffany. Nick suggests they get to know each other.

Patch phones Stephanie. He tells her about his conversation with Trent, who is looking for her and Max.

Tiffany tells Max his sister is horrible. He tells her they just met. "You look cute when you're confused," says Tiffany.

"I guess that's why I always look cute," says Max. Tiff moves in and kisses him. Steam escapes from Stephanie's ears as she watches.

Daniel and Kate wonder if Chelsea will ever forgive them.

Chelsea fills Lexie in on Theo. She says she likes her job and getting to know the patients, but not the cafeteria food. Lexie advises, "There are two sides to every story: the truth and whatever crock you can make up to convince your husband you're not having a chain of affairs behind his back."

Trent is on the phone, "Relax, I will take care of it. Max may have found Melanie. I will handle it."

Patch tells Stephanie Trent knows Nick is with her. Stephanie is more interested in the calisthenics going on at Max' table. She rushes inside and Tiffany decides this would be a good time to scram. Max leaf's through the Guy Manual and comes up with, "I'm innocent! I didn't do anything." Stephanie decides to forgive his indiscretion, but cleans off his tainted lips before they go to work on each other.

Chelsea tells Kate and Daniel they are darn well going to tell her what went on.



On the show that aired Friday:

Salem Hospital! Where HIPA stands for "Healthcare Is Pretty Appalling." Lexie tells Theo Chelsea won't be there today. Theo remains silent. The rest of us wish Lexie would.

John storms up and informs Lexie, "Blondie is missing. There is a psychopath on the loose after her. And I think someone beside me is after her, too."

Marlena returns to her office. She tells Cynthia she can't go back home and flashes back to the attack. Marlena zones after Cynthia tells her Dora is waiting.

Kate and Daniel rationalize. "What's this world coming to if you can't be nice to your potential grandmainlaw," asks Kate.

"I feel like a dog," says Daniel.

"You ought to," says Kate, "since we were going at it like a couple of dogs."

Tony and Anna tell EJ they are moving in to the DiMera mansion. Anna says she thinks it's a mistake. So does EJ. Tony wants to reclaim what's his. He knows Stefano is alive but thinks he won't claim his empire because he is on the lam. EJ wants them to work together to push John out.

The odd couple and the oddball decide to talk. Kate and Daniel say they never wanted to hurt Chelsea. They assure her she and Daniel weren't together when it happened. Chelsea wonders how she will get past the fact that her boyfriend slept with her grandmother. Kate tries to be upbeat and reminds Chelsea she has a lot of experience with this kind of thing.

Lexie puts out an AHB* for Marlena. She reminds John, "We can't watch every patient, you know."

"Can you watch any of them," asks John, "Excuse my social skills but I'm concerned."

*All Hospital Bulletin

Dora meets Marlena and immediately claims not to be crazy, "My life is out of control and I don't know how much more I can take. My TIVO is stuck on DOOL. Everyone's deserting me. I almost feel paralyzed."

Zombie Marlena repeats, "PARALYZED."

"I'm afraid to face each new day," says Dora, "There's a rumor Prevuze may shut down." Marlena advises her to take charge and stop living in fear.

Tony refuses to back down. EJ thinks maybe he should listen to Anna. He has been making inroads with John and doesn't want Tony interfering. Tony thinks John is preoccupied with all that's hanging over his head. EJ thinks Tony is forgetting about Stefano, "We both know that Stefano won't' be gone for all the Days Of Our Lives."

Anna accepts a delivery. She hands the bill of lading to EJ who discovers the sign of the Phoenix on it.

John and Lexie continue to wonder where Marlena is. John goes off to find her.

Marlena tells Dora no one can fix this for her. Dora has to take control of her life. John busts in. Marlena tells him to get out. Dora runs like a scared bunny. John lectures Marlena for disappearing. Marlena tells him she can't live her life in fear. John assures her he will take care of her if she comes home with him. Marlena don' need no stinkin' help.

Daniel and Kate make excuses. They tell Chelsea about meeting after Daniel took himself off her case. Kate claims she didn't hit on him, "We were both in a very bad place and we turned to each other." Daniel says they won't make excuses. Then they proceed to make excuses. Kate says she thought Chelsea was still in love with Nick and thought if Chelsea got involved with Daniel she would get hurt. Daniel says he was afraid of the same thing. "What do you know," says Chelsea, "You were both right."

The mystery delivery contains fine liquor, cigars, opera CDs and sopranos DVDs. Tony thinks Stefano is trying to unnerve them. EJ thinks Stefano may be on his way back there. Tony doesn't think so, but says they should be ready. Anna runs off.

John thinks this is a test. Marlena says she was frightened and John doesn't understand. She realized she wasted months of her life and now she knows she has a future, "I want to live in my future."

"Where else did you plan to live it," asks John. Marlena has decided she has to make a clean break from John. John thinks she is being selfish. He suddenly realizes how important she is to him. Marlena wonders if that means he loves her. John doesn't know. He remembers how it felt the first time they made love at the plane crash site. Marlena thinks about that too. They both think it would have been a lot better if they both wouldn't have sprained their backs on impact. John claims he short circuited. Marlena says she has felt so alone. They slam themselves together and hug. John rolls his eyes and thinks, "That guy manual is worth its weight in gold." Hugging... Kissing... Panting...

Chelsea says she doesn't understand why they didn't just tell her if they thought they weren't doing anything wrong. Daniel says he thought it would be awkward. Kind of like right now. Kate gets a call and leaves. Daniel gets a look that would kill. Daniel says he wants just to move on, "I don't want to lose you... especially since I haven't met your mother yet."

Anna bawls. Tony tires to reassure her. He claims this isn't about money but about standing up for what it right. He wants the ruthless android out of the mansion. He'll worry about EJ later.

John and Marlena share a quickie. The earth moves and then John blows it by telling her this was all about winning her back. Marlena nukes. As they bicker, EJ calls John, "We have a situation at the mansion."

"I have a situation of my own," says John. He hangs up as Marlena leaves. She claims he isn't the man she was in love with . He demands she come home with him.

Chelsea accuses Daniel of being a player.

Tony tells Anna they won't have to live at the mansion for long.

John and Marlena return to the mansion together. John thinks they can have something better than before. He kisses her and she goes dizzy. Marlena makes excuses for why she agreed to come there and says it's only for one night.

As they go in, John finds the booty. Post booty booty.

Daniel and Kate work on Chelsea. She runs out.

Chelsea winds up back at the hospital where Lexie butts in. Chelsea tells her she and Daniel are finished.

John collects the loot. EJ comes in and tells them Tony has moved in and Stefano is probably not far behind. John says Stefano will claim his empire over his dead body.

Tony continues to try to reassure Anna. Stefano calls and tells Tony he's coming home.

Chelsea watches Theo play. She knows little Theo understands her. Their relationship will grow and she knows she can count on him. Chelsea leaves. Theo pulls Chelsea's Barbie doll out from under the table and gives her a meaningful hug. "She must never know about us," says Barbie.

"I'm going to be a private eye. Well, actually one of them is private, the other is undercover."
 
Maybe Patch should have used the term “private dick”.  Think of the possibilities and all the Prevuzisms.
 
Patch overwhelms us with cheesy PI lingo, "I'll take a check as long as I can't play handball with it."
 
That’s because the lingo is penned by cheesy DOOL writers.
 
Chelsea is insulted by Kate's apology. The audience is insulted by Chelsea's existence.
 
Chelsea is really a worthless cipher.
 
Daniel says he doesn't want to lose Chelsea, "Kate and I never dated. We just went straight to the monkey sex."
 
That would be grandma monkey sex.
 
 
Salem Hospital! Where HIPA stands for "Healthcare Is Pretty Appalling."
 
Excellent Prevuze!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
"I feel like a dog," says Daniel.

"You ought to," says Kate, "since we were going at it like a couple of dogs."

 
Oh my, that conjures up quite on image!!!  Yuck!!!
 
"I'm afraid to face each new day," says Dora, "There's a rumor Prevuze may shut down."
 
Say it ain’t so because all the faithful readers will become positively apoplectic.  Desperate times means one has to take desperate measures so I might have to say a novena for Prevuze.  If this means a special trip to church for mass, I guess I’ll do it.  Since satellites are in the heavens, divine intervention just might be needed. 
 
Thanks of the great recaps and outstanding Prevuzisms.

Thanks for the recap! Love the Prevuze humor, and I actually prefer the recaps to the Day ahead :) (trying to cut down on spoilers)

I don't know if this has anything to do with your current problem, but for some reason my TIVO is not recognizing DAYS until September 9th. I have no idea why but it is really strange. I guess I will have to record DAYS the old fashion way until then.

Anyway, thanks for all your wonderful "prevuze". I crack up whenever I read them, and my husband thinks I am the weirdest person in earth.

Still working on the issue, but that's not the reason for my post. I just checked our Prevuze visitor map. Haven't found a single hit yet from Louisiana. The state looks like a black hole in a sea of stick pins on the map. We even have hits from Eastern Texas and Mississippi, but it's lights out in Louisiana. God bless you all down there.

TIVO is not recognizing DAYS

TIVO is a very advanced and intelligent technology.

One more thing and then I'll shut up. Prevuze says something but the audience cheering drowns it out.

We are receiving lots of offers for help. I intend to reply to each one, but it will take some time. Thanks everyone for your support.

The readers respond, "Prevuze, (say it with them) we are there for you."

Favorite prevuzism of the day... Thanks so much for the recap of the "past" episodes... This just made my morning!

LOL over "Lexie advises, "There are two sides to every story: the truth and whatever crock you can make up to convince your husband you're not having a chain of affairs behind his back." She must have to consult the Gal Manual regularly.

The title of this very welcome Prevuze could have been from one of two great Prevuisms. "The Odd Couple and the Oddball" or "Post Booty Booty". HAHAHAHA

SEE!!?? I told you post-episode recaps would be as welcome, Prevuze. I read some things I missed while watching the episodes. Probably because my brain shut down in a DOOL induced self-preservation kind of thing.

Prevuze, I don't know how you do it but WELCOME BACK and bless those folks in Canada, too!! :D

Prevuze you tease us, after reading these hilarious recaps I am reminded just what we would be missing without your snarky take on Days. I tried watching Friday's episode without any prevuisms in mind and it was seriously just not the same!! Please keep up the hard work trying to find a satellite feed - I didn't get a chance to comment on the weekend but I really appreciate your posts and read every single day.

Daniel says he wants just to move on, "I don't want to lose you... especially since I haven't met your mother yet."

They need to bring Billie back and have the two hook up before Dan knows she is Chels’ mother. That would be wickedly awesome.

Theo pulls Chelsea's Barbie doll out from under the table and gives her a meaningful hug. "She must never know about us," says Barbie.

That had to be my favorite Prevuism today. LOLOL

My first day back from vacation and thank GOODNESS I had a Prevuze to help me through it!

Thanks!

Oh dear, this was priceless.

Thank you so much, this totally brightened my day. There is NO way I'd start watching this again. You have a talent to make it fun to continue w/ DOOL. THANK YOU

Tiffany tells Max his sister is horrible. He tells her they just met. "You look cute when you're confused," says Tiffany.

"I guess that's why I always look cute," says Max.



I'm assuming the second line above was supposed to be in italics.

Also, was there supposed to be a show on Monday Sept 1 ? I'm in the East, so I tuned in at 1:00 and Family Feud was playing on my NBC affiliate . It was Labor Day in the US so I'm guessing it was preempted.

Chelsea watches Theo play. She knows little Theo understands her. Their relationship will grow and she knows she can count on him.


She's had the older man. Now she wants to try a younger one.

Yikes!

Prevuze, thanks for being there (here) for us.

ahhhh, that's MUCH better - I was starting to have Prevuze withdrawl, and there are no meds that can fix it. Thanks heaps for making my lunchbreak enjoyable once again, I was getting heartburn without you.

Prevuze-thanks so much for recapping last weeks stuff. I was really missing my daily snark!!!! I tried to get caught up on SoapNet over the weekend and instead they ran 9,000 episodes of 90210. Then I try to watch Monday and my NBC affiliate was showing some oldies informercial! I'll also say a Novena that you find the satellite soon, but any Prevuze is better than no Prevuze at all!

I don't watch Days anymore...I just read Prevuze while I eat my cereal in the morning. It's like a book that never ends, but is easy enough to read at 6am. PLEASE don't stop posting if you can't get the feed.

OK - what a day -
I actually tried WATCHING Days.
I did not recognize anyone.
Had to figure out who was who.
Almost feel asleep in the LaZeboy.
Kept expecting those great Prevuzisms to appear when they talked.
I would rather READ PREVUZE - even if it was a week later, than actually sit and WATCH "DAZE" of our Lives.(sleep through) (pun intended).
Gee and to think I scheduled my college classes around that 1:30 - 2:00PM time slot for 1/2 hour everyday 35 years ago. haha those were the DAYS!
