  1. Any Capitol Fans Here?

    That announcer could not give a rat's ass who killed John Dixon. Maybe he knew it was no one. LoL
  2. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    DAYS' first back from the dead plot.
  3. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Going all the way back to 1967!
  4. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    Also, Hollyoaks has had about a million.
  5. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    How can you forget Cameron? It was a fantastic story. In the long run, killing Carl was as stupid as it gets, but still.
  6. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    Speaking of, more and more the potential of doing a Loving murders type storyline with the Dingles becomes ever so much more delicious to me. Tina would have to return for it. And I'd keep Aaron alive because I am not killing off another gay character. He'd exit eventually, just not dead. Marlon could remain alive because of April being a Windsor, but he'd be scared out of town. And Charity has always been above the family so she'd escape the serial killer's wrath somehow. I'm thinking Lisa would be the killer, but that might be too samey from it's inspiration. Faith would abandon them again. But absolute victims would be Zak, Sam, Cain, Belle, Debbie, & Chas with Paddy one of the obligatory person(s) who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And more could be added if it suits me.
  7. Soap Stars who did porn/posed nude

    Kelly Monaco was a Playboy playmate as well.
  8. DAYS: September 2017 Discussion Thread

    I like Freddie Smith, but ever since he returned he's stated that he wants to retire early, plus he has his other ventures, so he probably only came back for the money/acting isn't a passion anymore.
  9. OLTL Tribute Thread

    If I just say I want to see him on my screen again, then I don't even have to wish him luck because it'll be luck the outcome I want has already been decided. What an awesome guy to find such strength at his age.
  10. Most Ridiculous Soap Moments

    Why? All My Children and The Young and the Restless did it first. I'd love to see those stories to compare.
  11. 2017: The Directors and Writers Thread

    Is Jean Passanante still in the credits, and if so, when should we expect her to be gone?
  12. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    Until Robert seduces Alex to get him away from Aaron.
  13. Classic GH Thread

    Could it be Media Player Classic?
  14. Highest Rated Episodes Ever

    Steve and Kayla's first wedding is the highest rated episode for Days of Our Lives. I don't know the figure though.
  15. Hollyoaks: Discussion Thread

    It's unfortunate that anyone has to be with succubus Ste.
  16. Correct. It's kind of sad that the most complex male characters DAYS has ever had are Bill Horton and Jack Deveraux, having that sickeningly distinct commonality among them. A double edged sword for me is that they are my personal two favourite male characters as well, and the situation with Bill is very much due to being from a different time period (just look at The Doctors re-runs for proof of that). So, though Bill would probably be my very first return if I were in power, in spite of my love for Jack and Matthew Ashford, I would continue to let the character rest in peace until, at the very least, the canvas rehabilitates itself significantly.
  17. Days actor returns

    The 'gay' fans question is offensive. As if only gay people could potentially like the couple. I'm rarely a couple person myself so this isn't some shipper's rant, but not fixing a question like that in 2017 is atrocious.
  18. Soap Opera Pet Peeves

    All the brainwashing sex that happened, I would count as well. There's stuff like Billie/Sami taking advantage of Bo/Austin when they thought they were someone else. Throughout the years you also had Laura, Trish, Julie, Marlena, Maggie, the iconic Molly Brinker , and possibly more I'm forgetting. I've been meaning to make a full list at some point, actually.
  19. Soap Opera Pet Peeves

    No. She was one of the few that escaped that fate. Although, some people consider the character having sex while being brainwashed to be rape.
  20. Cancelled Soaps Cast Lists

    Do you know what years Joyce Van Patten played Janice Turner on ATWT? Also, would it be possible for you to edit the first post to add a list of the soaps that you have posted about?
  21. EastEnders: Discussion Thread

    But with Coronation Street, it should happen. They have a strong handful of characters that need to be rested, which is what I think this exit is. If John Yorke can see the Branning sisters need a break, someone who was always a major champion of the Branning family (hence my earlier question) I think it could only mean that he is looking at the show objectively. As for Janine, I only started with Kirkwood so I found her story to always be consistently well written until her exit under DTC. I do agree to a fear that she could be ruined under a future regime, but I loved everything they did with her since I started watching.
  22. EastEnders: Discussion Thread

    Was John Yorke the one who basically championed the Branning take over in the mid to late 2000s?

  25. Radio Soap Opera Discussion

    Radio Soap Operas Radio daytime drama series were broadcast for decades and some expanded to television for even more decades. These dramas were often referred to as soaps, a shortening from the earlier label, soap opera. That term stems from the original dramatic serials broadcast on radio that had soap manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, and Lever Brothers as sponsors and producers. These early radio serials were broadcast in weekday daytime slots when mostly housewives would be available to listen; thus the shows were aimed at and consumed by a predominantly female audience.
