Just caught a few eps. Has this show long since decided it doesn't want to be taken seriously? From what I gather there are 2 doppelgängers ?? I feel bad for the few good actors left.
I'm interested in seeing Chandler Massey again. Nice to see Lucas Horton still in it.
Let me put it another way:
1. Soap start in 1930.
2. General Public repsonds well but not the art elite.
3.A. A saturation similar to the '.com bubble' occures--Everyone was making daytime serials to boost there
revenue. Then, somewhere down the line, the 'bubble burst'.
3.B. The bubble burst because of TV. People dumped there TV, ad revune became stronger on TV, radio had a hard time moving.
4. Quality deminshes so the art elite is taken seriously.
5. ATWT reinvents the genre by playing to TV streanghts instead of trying to translate radio streanthgs to the TV.
6. During the late 60s and throughout the 70s daytime is achieved acclaim from the academic sector, thanks to Agnes Nixon and Bell, in humanities courses.
7. The 80s happen. Shows like Dynasty and campy stuff from GH appeal to a lot of folks of that era as camp was the zeitgeist of the time.
8. The 90s started strong but then they fetished on age demos. This caused good people to leave and folks like Dina Higley and Megan McTavish to stay.
9. Daytime started to suck.
10. Folks would tune in priodically to see, sometimes during lunch break or sick days, and be like, "What! Why did I like this crap!"
I'll expand and refine some other time
