Days of Our Lives is a true American classic
Days of Our Lives is a daytime soap opera airing on NBC. In view of the fact that AJ mentioned he grew up watching the show with his grandma, you might have already guessed that the show has been on the air for a considerably good amount of time now. To put it into perspective, Days of Our Lives is in fact one of the longest-running scripted television shows in the world. The show has been on air since 1965 and has produced over 14,000 episodes to this day. The story is set in the fictional town of Salem in the Midwest and follows the lives of its core families which deal with love, marriages, relationships, divorces, and careers. The show made its way to stand out because at a time and decade like the 70s, the show covered extremely sensitive, bold, and revolutionary concepts that other soap operas at that era and period of American history would not take a chance on. The show has also been parodied by sitcoms like Friends and sketch-comedy shows like SCTV. American actress and producer Julia Roberts, who is known for her roles in movies like Pretty Woman and Notting Hill, is a huge fan of the show.
