I thought this would be an interesting topic because I read that Irna wanted to do a story on LIAMST about a botched abortion back in 68'. Although she never did that story are there any stories that Daytime actually did that Primetime may not be able to handle or accomplish?

Since we have traveled back to 1983, can someone write to Procter & Gamble and ask them not to write out the entire Bauer family.

We are well past the point where daytime was more progressive than primetime.

The only one that I can think of in the last few years has been the teen online bullying stories. The problem for me is that if OLTL's story is any indication, modern soaps should not be handling this at all.

Wasn't that a banned episode of Scrubs?

Irna managed to tell the botched abortion story twice. First was on Another World with Patricia Matthews becoming pregnant by Tom Baxter and diagnosed barren after her abortion led to a life threatening infection. On Love Is a Many Splendored Thing, Terry Andrews died from a botched abortion. The story CBS denied Irna was an interracial romance between a white male and Asian female, and regrettably, heretofore, Asian characters have been even more underrepresented than African Americans in daytime.

I love it, Vee. And, I am certain Grey's Anatomy is not ready to suddenly replace Sandra Oh with Hayden Panettiere and have her sing the show's theme song at the drop of a hat.

Mine is a reversal. The best storyline EVER was during the 1985-86 storyline on Dallas when the whole damnned thing was Victoria Principal (Pam's) dream. Why hasn't a daytime soap opera been this courageous? Do shows ever and that includes Twin Peaks, Friday Night Lights or even The Walking Dead as big as huge and epic as Dallas? I am tuning out, the best soap opera on TV these days, The Walking Dead comes on in two hours with their middle-of-the season cliff-hanger. This is the show where it's at.

We always joke how this-or-that incoming HW or EP should do the it-was-all-a-horrible-dream scenario. Truth is, though, if anyone at any daytime soap even dared try that, most probably would spit fire.

For a minute there on OLTL, RC was a fan of using dreams/daydreams on a much smaller (i.e., not a full damn season) scale to let entire scenarios play out, and then have the character suddenly snap out of it. It got to a point where you could almost instantly sniff them out, like, "No way this denouement is coming THAT fast."

I would say DOOL's secret island of the undead is probably daytime's answer to the dream season.

Or the shorter explaination for it would be: ruin the show. ;)

Something that happens in PRIMETIME that I'd like to see is daytime is a flash forward episode. Brit soap Hollyoaks did this once where they flash forwarded to a wedding six months later that showed a character being shot and killed. I know many would worry about the HW getting replaced or actors coming and going, but those are easy things to work around. They pretty much know whose contract is up when and who to feature. It would be difficult to pull off, but I think it would be an interesting senario.

The main problem with doing that is soaps are made up as they go along, or at least they are now. Ron Carlivati can't even keep track of a story for a month, let alone six.
