Cruz Castillo- DEAD?!? Sophia Capwell- PRESUMED Dead!?!? Mary Duvall- Back From The DEAD?? All in a day's work on SONBC's highest rated blog serial, Return to Santa Barbara. Once again, SONBC sits down with 'RTSB's (re-)creator, juniorz (he insists we call him this, though those in the know may refer to him as 'Greg')
SONBC: Let's get down to business. Do you hate the supercouples of 'Santa Barbara'?
juniorz: (laughs) Good God, no, quite the opposite- I care very deeply about t
(EXT: Cruz & Eden's Beach House)
---Cruz wakes up alone in bed. He throws on a shirt and heads downstairs, where he finds Eden, dressed for the day. He wishes her 'good morning' but she lays the silent treatment on thick. He persists, claiming he should be the one mad at her, since she followed him.
"YOU! That's rich, Cruz, real rich. Tell me, if I hadn't followed you, when would you have gotten around to telling me tha
DECEMBER PREVIEWS- SONBC EXCLUSIVE WITH 'RTSB' CREATOR juniorz!
SONBC: So the blog is a hit! Congratulations!
JUNIORZ: Thank you very much. I couldn't be more pleased with the response myself. I LOVE that the Santa Barbara fanbase has given it a shot- this week, 'RTSB' bounced back to #1 in the SONBC ratings, with a 4.0 rating & 792 views!!! I just hope that I'm able to keep those that have sampled it coming back for more.
SONBC: So far, so good it seems. You've come out s
I LOVE Writing RTSB, but the pace is suicidal and I think caught up with me today. As much as I wanted to have a 5 episode week, I'm slowing down this week and only doing 4. It's one of those days where no matter how hard I try to get started on it, I can't get going so, I'm calling it a day. I just can't get into a rhythm today and don't want the episode to suffer because of it. RTSB will definitely return tomorrow and the week will continue, as scheduled.
I've found the perfect theme song for 'RTSB'. http://santabarbara-online.com/GeneriqueDebutUS.rm
The song debuted in Episode 16. I think everyone will surely like it! Be sure & listen to our theme song before reading each episode, if only to set the mood.
Today's episode will air sometime later tonight, to give viewers time to catch up on yesterday's double header. Hopefully, it will be up no later than 11 PM, however, I'll be shooting for earlier.
Edit: I will be ed
This schedule is subject to change, of course. But here is the tentative schedule for 'RTSB' this week.
(All times are Eastern U.S. time zone)
MONDAY- between 10-11 PM
TUESDAY- between 7-8 PM
THURSDAY- between 1-3 PM
FRIDAY- between 10-11 PM
This will be another 4 episode week, as I have lots to juggle, especially with the holidays coming up.
Angel makes progress in the investigation!
Mason figures things out & confronts Julia!
UPDATE: Haha, so I worked 16 hours Saturday (meeting at 8, shift started at 10:45 AM, ended 12 AM). Then, I woke up Sunday for another shift, got home early (3 PM) and slept from then until 2 AM! U wanna talk about beat...... In any event, 'RTSB' will return tomorrow (Monday) with no loss in story!
This week, Renee Jones makes her Return To Santa Barbara debut in the short term role of Nurse Sherri Rhodes. Sherri, of course, is the nurse who was supposed to have been in the delivery room when Mary's daughter was stillborn. RTSB executive producer juniorz is said to be ecstatic to have Renee aboard.
"She's perfect for this part- it actually worked out quite nicely for both sides, since Ms. Jones didn't want to commit to something long-term, with the possibility of her return to DAYS st
SONBC's Return to Santa Barbara will be back this week with 6 Brand New Episodes, the first of which to be posted late tonight or Monday morning. Lots is happening this coming week, including part 2 of the family dinner in the next installment. Here's a preview of what's in store for the week:
Edmund continues to lavish Sophia with extravagance!
Edmund & Sophia play a game of cat and mouse with Augusta!
Santana leaves her patient for the memorial service!
Cruz's memorial service ta
First off, you'll notice the addition of Judy Greer (as Kathleen) to our recurring cast list. Kathleen has already been seen a few times on 'RTSB' and will continue to be seen. Since she's a new character, I felt it important that she had a face to go with her. Some of you may remember Greer from her stint on "Arrested Development" where she played Kitty, the Bluth Company secretary. Or perhaps in the cult-classic "Jawbreaker", where she played Fern Mayo. 'RTSB' is quite lucky to have l
In what comes as no surprise to anyone who read Episode 40 of 'RTSB', 'RTSB' creator juniorz just gave official word of Tuc Watkins departure from 'RTSB' and Justin Deas reprisal of the role he created. This morning, SONBC received the following statement from junior:
"It is with great sadness that I announce the departure of Tuc Watkins from 'Return to Santa Barbara.' I'm very fond of Tuc and his acting skills and thought he made for a fantastic Keith Timmons. Unfortunatel
It's Christmas or the Hanukkah or the Holidays or whatever you celebrate. In any event, this week (and you can, in part, credit the blog outage for this), 'RTSB' is taking somewhat of a break from the heavier stories and bringing some romance back to Santa Barbara. Those who have read Tuesday's episode got the first taste of that, with hugely romantic moments between Cruz & Eden and Ted & Angela. That will continue through Friday. Expect to see the following couples enjoying suc
Sorry about yesterday you guys but there's a nasty bug going around my work that I unfortunately have caught. I slept for 12 HOURS LAST NIGHT!!!! Still don't feel so hot but I promise, Episode 48 will be posted sometime tonight!!! Hope to see you all here!
ETA: Starting today, there will be a link to the GET SANTA BARBARA on TV webpage posted after the theme song. I do hope you all check out the site & help us in the effort to bring Santa Barbara onto Soapnet in '07!!!!
Here's the Schedule for the week (all times are US Eastern Standard Time):
Monday- Episode 31 New Year's Eve episode, between 7-9 PM, followed by December Episode Counts
Tuesday- Episode 32 between 8-11 PM
Wednesday- no episode scheduled
Thursday- Episode 33 between 8-11 PM
Friday- Episode 34 between 10 PM -12 AM, possibly delayed until Saturday (between 7-9 PM)
I'll try to communicate any further changes throughout the week! New Year's Eve will be posted tonight!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 'RTSB' was pre-empted today, as I've already told you. Tomorrow's special Thanksgiving episode should be up early in the day! Hope you all like it! Lionel & Augusta will make their debut in very Lockridge fashion. Most of the core cast will be featured tomorrow & Friday- those days are not to be missed!!!!!!!!
As all of you know, SON had yet another outage yesterday, causing RTSB to be pre-empted. I had lots I was building to this week which is why I kept re-scheduling to make it a 5 episode week. Unfortunately, now, that won't be happening. With the way I have everything paced (and you all know I'm a stickler for pacing), everything works out better if I do 3 episodes this week instead of 4. So I'm keeping Friday as an 'off' day for 'RTSB' and will post this week's final episode tomorrow, as
Tuesday's episode has been delayed, due to unforseen circumstances with my day. However, there will be 2 episodes posted tomorrow- the first in the late morning/early afternoon, the second between 11 PM & 12 AM. There will be 5 episodes this week, as planned. Sorry for the delay!
Previews for tomorrow's 2 episodes:
Pamela & Sophia have it out
Dr Edmund Lavery makes his debut
Julia gets answers from Mary
Lily investigates Angela
Lionel pays CC a visit
Eden meets Carla
......Later than originally scheduled. Since Thursday's episode didn't air until mid-Thanksgiving Day, I want to give any readers who haven't read it yet the time to catch up before today's episode. Therefore, today's episode will be posted sometime tonight, probably between 10-11 PM. Be sure to come back later tonight or tomorrow to check it out, as it will be a Thanksgiving to remember for the residents of Santa Barbara. Hope everyone is enjoying it so far- there's more to come!!!!!
Sorry for last week's unnanounced hiatus guys, but I've been sick and had family in town over the weekend. Plus, the hours at my job were cranked up a bit this week. But THIS WEEK, RTSB is back for 4 brand new episodes! See the updated schedule for details. It's a week you definitely won't want to miss! And of course, don't miss an all-new edition of Talkin Santa Barbara! this Wednesday at 10 PM on BlogTalkRadio. The link is on the right side of the blog!!!!
Sorry gang but the holidays actually have left me swamped this week!! I feel like I'm one of 10 people at my job who are actually in town right now- SO HECTIC!!!! But things will be getting back on track tomorrow & Saturday. I wanted to post a new episode tonight, but I'm so worn out right now, I'm not sure how good it would turn out. I may get a second wind, but every time I try to start writing it, I just can't get it to flow right. Basically, one of two things will happen: e
