  1. She hasn't passed away on screen yet, but Peggy McCay died in October. However, Caroline last aired in 2016.
  2. If it comes back, I hope it does so slowly. For one, OLTL should not be a package deal. Let AMC build it's audience with a couple half hours a week. Let it work through the crooks and crannies and then if it becomes successful, an potential expansion and revival of OLTL can be discussed. Doing too much too fast would lead to failure.
  3. I can’t listen to her for too long because she makes me forget to breathe.
  4. I must be itching for a SKINS rewatch because I was most excited for that brief glimpse of Gendry.
  5. Not early Fox, but I did love short term shows Tru Calling and Point Pleasant.
  6. DAYS: Denise Alexander (Susan Hunter Martin Peters) and Dick Colla (Tony Merritt) - married Jean Bruce Scott (Jessica Blake Fallon) and Randy Reinholz (Adam Scott) - married, though they were never on the show together
  7. In an ideal world, what actors/characters would you include in a revival?
  8. Bless Linda Dano not knowing how to use hashtags.
  9. The music to bring on Mirren/Momoa sounds like it would be a great soap opera theme.
  10. Am I dumb for thinking the listing price is really low by today's standards?
  11. Props to you for putting Kirsten Dunst. Her performances in All Good Things and Meloncholia should've been nominated. Thandie Newton being snubbed for Crash was inexcusable. And some of those names, Donald Sutherland, Robin Wright, Steve Buscemi, Michael Sheen, Ewan McGregor are names I naturally assume have been nominated for something because they do have accolades elsewhere. I'm never good at these games myself. My mind always goes blank as if no knowledge has ever been occupied.
  12. I wish I could post some great clips from the underrated Shortland Street. I watched form 2012-17, but didn't have time anymore once I went back to school. Plus, it can be hard to find episodes sometimes so I walked away. The show isn't always a master class, but when I watched I generally enjoyed most of what was going on. The show's young stars have been breaking out recently, too. Frankie Adams, Beulah Koale, Thomasin McKenzie, and of course, KJ Apa, are all rising stars. Here's the death of Pixie Hannah (Thomasin McKenzie) from cancer. The actress who plays the mother, Margaret, was truly outstanding during her short time on the show. The character went through a strange trajectory of going to prison after embezzling money from the hospital, but never becoming villainous. I'd love to see her get more opportunities to shine elsewhere.
  13. It was until the reveal. The aftermath ruined so many characters that still haven't recovered.
  14. A big problem for Neighbours was its prior G rating. I'm sure there are great moments/storylines etc, but it was basically a kid show. Soap Operas should be allowed to be daring and provocative, NB hasn't been allowed that. Also, it comes off way too saccharine, so when a character actually shows they have a personality in the confines of the show it seems ground breaking. Home and Away has been running through the motions for years. There's no heart in the show. Nothing that really makes you feel connected. It died when Sally left, IMO. They also are so ass backwards with social issues. The show is white on white on white. Even when they cast actors that aren't, they tell us that the characters are. (i.e., Andy Barrett) NB, at least, is one of the most diverse soaps around.
  15. Shortland Street, a New Zealand soap opera, has had some great promos. High production values, makes you want more, and with these two examples, the stories told didn't disappoint either.
