    • After the gay kiss scenes featuring "Kish" were broadcast on OLTL, one hyperventilating critic on a message board raged that she did not want to see "hard-core homosexual pornography" on her "clean" show.   Hard-core gay pornography?????   I was soooooo tempted to send her links to some REAL porn, for comparison, but I refrained.
    • There isn’t one.  I truly think it’s limping to an ultimate death.  If they haven’t already utilized their back catalog to make money they are not going to start now.   If you follow a company like Shout, which releases things on DVD that major studios pass on, you know just how expensive moving older material into a new format is.  These are corporations, they want to make money, and the investment to turn these things into current money isn’t worth it to them.   Those ATWT/GL DVD’s sold well.  But for whatever reason, it wasn’t enough to continue.
    • Thank you @BoldRestless – I’ve never seen these Minisodes before. I’ve seen some clips but not others… like I’ve seen the May ’82 Hasselhoff clip, but the one with Snapper and Sally from ’81, in the Nikki stripping minisode, was a cool find. Love the background music when Chuckie walks in.   The Cole/Victoria scene, with the horses and the rainstorm and all the drama, was epic!   Jeanne C was amazing in those divorce scenes - I can see why Katherine later contested signing the papers, as she did indeed appear black-out drunk at the time.  But I feel like every clip I’ve seen Donnelly Rhodes in as Phillip, he seems wooden. Which is surprising, as I remember him from later in the ’70s on the sitcom “Soap”, and he was hysterical.
