  1. Joe Wilson.
  2. A thread for people who want to talk about the 90-91 series, the film, the tie-in books, and in time, the 2016 revival. I have some articles here and there that I don't think I've ever put here. Now I have an excuse. June 16, 1990 Soap Opera Weekly
  3. We'll see how far this gets. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/north-carolina-bathroom-law-236674
  4. Well I have a feeling she'll be having a baby soon anyway... Have you seen any of the Cain/Harriet stuff?
  5. Watching it was eerie as she even talks like Holly. I have a feeling she's going to just end up using Jai and maybe Moira but I hope not as I'd hate for Holly's memory to be exploited that way. It's hard to say with the cast because they've had a big cast for a while now and with ever-lowering budgets and ratings for soaps you wonder how long that can last. I just hope that none of my favorite supporting people who never have enough to do end up going. If anyone like Leyla or Bernice left I'd really have to question watching. They can have the Whites though...
  6. Joss Whedon looks more like Phil Mitchell than ever. Why am I not surprised he was in a central spot rather than the actual cast... It's nice to see everyone again, especially Kristine Sutherland. I always liked Amber Benson too. I was surprised they were all there with some of their personal problems and some of their feuds. Charisma really doesn't age. She looks gorgeous. I kept trying to think of who was missing of people who weren't just recurring like my beloved Darla and Dru and I remembered Marc Blucas. I wonder if they gave a reason why he wasn't there. Oh and Anthony Stewart Head. I hope he's doing alright. I wish SMG had just said "I choose neither," as I didn't like either relationship, but I can understand why she chose Angel.
  7. I think Rebecca will go too (no loss...), and Lachlan, maybe Chrissie. I could see a few supporting characters going as well, like Dan and Kerry. I know Hola isn't safe but I put it on again to watch the Emmerdale Ashley promo on their site. It just breaks my heart. The whole story. All of it. The promo too. They've also started putting deleted scenes up again and they have an interview with Chris Bisson about his new story, which is with a Holly lookalike.
  8. Considering Richard Carpenter's own pill addiction it's eerily appropriate.
  9. I have a lot of issues with Will Smith but I wish she would consider moving on as she was a good actress who has pretty much burned all her bridges.
  10. I know you aren't too fond of Adam Thomas... It hasn't been confirmed, but I assume it's true. He's barely had a story since 2014, which is a long time even for a soap, his brother left Corrie last year, his other brother seems to have gotten a lot out of being on reality TV, and he was popular on I'm A Celebrity. I've always liked Adam Barton and thought Thomas was an underrated actor, so I hope it isn't true. And Moira really will be at a loss - she will just be even more shackled to the Dingles. I don't know what it will do with Victoria - she could get a new lease of life or become even more of a background player. I keep thinking we'll be hearing about Mike Parr sooner rather than later.
  11. How Trump can easily destroy the ACA (I imagine this will happen any day now - and I also imagine a lot of people will still blame Obama and Democrats for it). http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/trump-obamacare-explode-236623 Mentions of "climate change" among other bad words are now banned. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/energy-department-climate-change-phrases-banned-236655
  12. He's probably a producer pet. I couldn't watch any of Amy's death as it wasn't about her anyway, just about Ste, as always. What did you think?
  13. Unless he's lived in Budapest since 2001, I doubt it...
  14. The worst part is the scene where Martin tries to attack Preston. She is cowering in the corner like she's in Broken Blossoms. It's completely and totally out of character.
  15. I think this may be a duplicate of another clip that was already put up, but I can't remember, so...?
  16. John Middleton interview. This was tough to read http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2017-03-28/emmerdale-john-middleton-on-filming-ashleys-emotional-death---it-was-very-hard
  17. She was mixing sleeping pills and alcohol and jumped in the car when she heard Preston was leaving. It was hilarious.
  18. It was all flat. You could see the strings - it was supposed to be very clever that they were with the same man, they'd find out in the Vic, of course Martin would beat him up, and then the hilarious crash that seemed like something from many years ago, like one of those old syndicated shows from the late '80s. Michelle's pleading and whining was embarrassing - I felt so embarrassed when she was cowering. That was NOT Michelle. James Bye as Martin salvaged the only parts that were worth salvaging, when he told Michelle how ashamed he was of her. Jenna Russell was good in that scene and in the pilled out moments near the end but it was all just trash. Sadly the ratings will likely be good so they will keep going to this well of trash. Denise/Kush and Sylvie/Tina were a lot better.
  19. I know a lot of this is already out there, but since I was mostly posting old articles in the cancelled soaps section I thought I might start posting some stuff on the current soaps here, just under different threads for each soap. If you're interested in this, let me know, and I'll post more, or someone who has a lot of good stuff can post more. This is from the July 1976 Afternoon TV Stars. Lorelei Publishing Inc
  20. Oh they'll be back to Ste and Harry soon enough. Bleh.
  21. One woman was married to a man in Monticello at that time who was in love with her. The other woman had been married to a man Nicole had had an affair with or something. I think he had died and she blamed Nicole. I would pay money to see that storyline.
  22. I was listening to Work and the subtitles said "I dealt with you the nicest." I thought it was, "I dealt with you tonight, sis." I prefer my version...

  23. To be honest with you I don't trust most news sites these days. I'm just hoping that it trickles down to the average voter in some form. But I don't really know if anyone can understand what he's doing with things like labor regulations unless they feel the effects themselves. Of course many of those who do will still blame Obama anyway, but I hope that isn't the case for everyone.
  24. The main things I saw here were all about Spicer. Then I went to a few political news sites and it was a mix of Yates, Nunes, Yates, the repeal, the regulations, Spicer, etc. But in a celebrity driven culture, a clown is always going to get a lot of attention because it's easier for people to laugh at and get a lot of retweets and likes.
