Favorite (and, okay, Not-So-Favorite) Directors

8 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

If we've covered this topic before, I don't remember. Nevertheless, in light of a post I just made in the Cancelled Soaps/GUIDING LIGHT thread regarding an update on longtime director Harry Eggart, I thought it'd be cool to list our all-time fave directors in this business.

And, sure, why not, let's list our least favorite directors as well.

On the GL note, Bruce S. Barry comes to mind immediately as one of the best this genre had to offer.

Same. And who knows? If Barry hadn't been forced out due to budget cuts, he might've worked wonders in Peapack, too!

Y&R - Frank Pacelli and Heather Hill were great too.

For ATWT, I would say Paul Lammers and Maria Wagner were two of the best.

Michael Stich would be tops for B&B, obviously.
