  1. The hint is in 'upcoming newcomer.'
  2. Friday's cast credits showed that upcoming newcomer Cait Fairbanks (Tessa Porter) is on contract. Liz Hendrickson is still on the contract cast as well.
  3. Orlagh Cassidy (GL/AW) was on the latest episode of HOMELAND.
  4. I just hope it's a hit for KJ Apa's sake. He was wonderful on Shortland Street. He deserves to be a star.
  5. I forget if this was mentioned elsewhere, but since it really seems to be happening I thought I'd start a thread about it. A new Irish soap opera is upon us and will premiere sometime in 2015. Here's the announcement that Irish channel TV3 was looking around for a new soap ... http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/soaps/s95/fair-city/news/a509603/new-irish-soap-launch-in-2015-fair-city-actors-to-star.html Further news came out this week which revealed John Yorke (formerly of EastEnders) will be heading up the production team for the new soap! http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/soaps/news/a555305/former-eastenders-executive-producer-to-head-up-new-irish-soap-for-tv3.html#~oDTko2NfgiUMMN I find this all to be pretty exciting. I'm happy to read the show will only be two episodes a week to start. What is John Yorke's reputation at EastEnders? Can anyone tell me what he was responsible for, good and/or bad?
  6. I already started my rewatch, the latest episode being Maddie's death. I'm happy to see I'll be able to take my time with the rest of season two. Thanks for all the updates, Vee.
  7. Not only was the Ashley centric episode terrific, but it was a nice surprise to see Bryan Parry again who played Louis McQueen on the last Hollyoaks Later.
  8. Lamb chops and roasted potatoes
  9. It's looking that way. Hence her new blue hair. Of that same vein, Jade, Joey's baby mama, has been recast by that newcomer that was announced to be joining a few weeks ago. It'll be ages, until at least late spring, that Jovanni's exit happens on screen.
  10. Kirsten Storms as Maxie, GH - I still lament Robyn Richards being recast in the first place. Anemic mouse, some good performances notwithstanding, keeps that fire burning consistently. It would be like if DAYS never realized their mistake regarding Christie Clark/Tracy Middendorf. A colossal WTF? Judith Chapman, Gloria, YR - Joan van Ark was so great in the role, and then we got stuck with bug eyes. What a steep drop in quality.
  11. Her stints in daytime passed me by, and Ryan's Hope is something I've never gotten too interested in, but when I think of her I still think of the moment on GH, where my favourite, Felicia cries, "No, not Barbara Jean." Her writing elicited moments from her cast and crew that became iconic. Rest in Peace to a daytime great. Now, someone please check on Harding Lemay.
  12. Wolé Parks, the last actor to play Dallas Griffin on ATWT, debuted playing The Devil (literally) on the final season of The Vampire Diaries tonight.
  13. I've only just browsed through it, but as of this afternoon, I am the proud owner of The Secret History of Twin Peaks! It's very thick, so I'm guessing there will be a lot to lose myself in. I don't know when I'll really sit down and delve into it because I also purchased Willam's Suck Less that will be immediately fun fodder when it arrives by mail in a couple of weeks.
  14. I am grateful to be Canadian at a time like this, for there are people in my family, my father included, who would have happily voted for Trump. If I was an American, at this point, I do not know if I could continue a relationship with these people. There is a blissful ignorance that I can rationalize not having to do this because people in my life weren't responsible on a technicality. I try my best not to subject myself to their warped minds on the topic, but I know its there, inherently in them, and I always knew this and its always horrified me. I commend any and all of those who are continuing to fight and persevere through this. I yearn for the good people to win; the Davids of the world. Good luck. Cat, the dorm room incident hit me the most as well. I think because at least the other incidents happened outside of someone's home, but the victim in that situation has no where to go for peace, safety, or solace.
  15. If the date is right, she was on DAYS during that time.
  16. This year just has one devastating loss after another. He got a great exit though. Am I the only one feeling like TK could soon be gone too? This stuff with Trina (she's only 21 in real life! ), the introduction of sexy Hawks, and Tillie living elsewhere all make it look like his time on the show is coming to a close. 2016 has been ruthless in real and reel life.
  17. Radio Soap Operas Radio daytime drama series were broadcast for decades and some expanded to television for even more decades. These dramas were often referred to as soaps, a shortening from the earlier label, soap opera. That term stems from the original dramatic serials broadcast on radio that had soap manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, and Lever Brothers as sponsors and producers. These early radio serials were broadcast in weekday daytime slots when mostly housewives would be available to listen; thus the shows were aimed at and consumed by a predominantly female audience. For a list for most Radio Soap Opera's, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_radio_soaps
  18. It's okay, I'll wish him dead for the both of us. Unfortunately, I don't think I could be that lucky.
  19. Having Finn be in yesterday's episode and the fact that he hasn't had anything to do in ages makes me fear he could be a casualty at the end of the week. I think I can say with certainty that Paddy, Robert, Aaron, Ashley, and Laurel all survive.
  20. I don't know a lot about ATWT couplings, but I know DAYS has had quite a few as well.
  21. The most recent American actor, playing a major character at least, was PJ Brennan, who played Doug Carter on Hollyoaks for 4 years. I admit until there was confirmation stating otherwise, I couldn't help but think he was just a British actor putting on an American accent.
  22. I agree with you singling out that Ken scene. I thought that was the most he's been written like his true self in quite awhile. Thanks for mentioning that David a pet named Barney. I never knew that. I just figured in some sardonic way he was referencing the purple dinosaur. And yes, Shepherd was truly engrossing during the video message. I'm excited for mama Gail to make a roaring comeback this week.
  23. Not Carl, obviously, but I know she always championed having Fiz and Sean on the show, characters who have many detractors, and she decried at one point that there were too many gays on the street.
  24. I loved Nicola's line about Jimmy today. "You know, you're basically turning into Homer Simpson." Rebecca is already more likable than Chrissie ever has been. And her/the show saying that Robert isn't gay is going to throw those Robron twerps into a tailspin. Carl, I hope you'll try to enjoy their meltdown.
  25. I think it's hilarious that fun bitch Jude on Hollyoaks has the same plot as Phelan/Vinny, who are basically supposed to be evil bastards. It makes them look like such amateurs. It's almost like Hollyoaks is laughing in their face.
