Again, I'd give anything to see soaps from the 70s (outside of The Doctors, which is airing now, & RH, which I watched on SoapNet) b/c they seemed to be at their most daring during that time.
Oh yes. I was fortunate enough to be an avid soap watcher throughout the genre's glory years. I watched all the greats: Henry Slesar's TEON, William J. Bell's DAYS and Y&R, Pat Falken Smith's DAYS and GH, Agnes Nixon's AW, TGL, AMC and OLTL, Douglas Marland's GH, Irna Phillip's ATWT, Harding Lemay's AW, Claire Labine's LoL and R'sH...the list is endless.
As I have mentioned before, the writing used to be so great in the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, did not even realize at the time how blessed and spoiled I was too see the master writers at the top of their game. I believed that soaps would always be well-written, adult, and thought-provoking. Little did I know that viewers would eventually end up going from William J. Bell to Charles Pratt, from Irna Phillips to Jean P., from Pat Falken Smith to James Reilly. AAAAAAGH!!!!
