  1. "Roseanne" revival in the works

    Roseanne and John Goodman both strike me as looking better than they have since the show went off the air. Rosey, especially, but they all look happy and ready to do this. So exciting!
  2. Hallmark Channel's When Calls the Heart is pretty legit.

      I must admit I've checked out a few episodes in order to ogle Daniel Lissing.  I'm only human.

      Yes, I'm already fangirling because he's cute in a very indulgent, "I shouldn't be swooning because he's *that* random attractive guy" way. I'm feeling tf out of the general tone of the show, too. Very LHOTP but with a somewhat modern sensibility. Much better than some of their other original series, most of which have let me down a lot.

  3. Dynasty: Discussion Thread

    I tried Riverdale when it debuted and didn't stick with it, but I don't think I can really blame that on the show itself. I had too much going on at the time to keep up watching. Plus, it's considered one of their hits now, so I guess I don't have to worry about it not lasting. It would be nice to watch a pair of CW dramas regularly again.
  4. Dynasty: Discussion Thread

    I just watched it, and I enjoyed it. If you were coming into this expecting anything other than about 85% CW and 15% original Dynasty, then you were destined for disappointment from the very start. I truly hate the fact that "reboot" has become a catch-all term for any and every time an older series comes back. This is a reimagining - a remake with huge and deliberate differences in tone, mood, etc. They absolutely should have called it something else and gave the characters new names to avoid any comparisons to the original series, but it is what it is. The pace was a lot more comfortable than I thought it would be, and I knew my girl Liz Gillies would deliver in the (lead?!) role of Fallon. In true CW fashion, she's the star of the show, and that's just one of those adjustments that, if you were expecting anything otherwise, then this probably just isn't for you. The one and only "Why is it not like the original?" nitpick is the location. I'm pissed that we're missing out on what could have been some gorgeous Denver cinematography, and yes, "Denver Carrington" just has that ring to it...
  5. What Are You Listening To?

    I wasn't expecting to get into this like I have, but it's a bop!
  6. Dynasty: Discussion Thread

    I didn't realize how male this show is until I saw that promo shot up there. Part of that is down to them changing Sammy Jo into a man, but I'm gonna need them to add more ladies because Cristal vs. Fallon wasn't enough in 1981, and it won't be enough now.
  7. "Family Matters" cast reunion photo(s)

    I think that they, rightly, believe a revival would fit closer to the original vision of the show. The wacky Urkel character and all of his adventures would definitely not fly in today's TV landscape, but Urkel as the dorky-hot son-in-law who still gets into it with perpetually pissy Carl would be perfect. I loved Mother Winslow and Myra, but I don't think the show bombs without them at all. The cast looks GREAT, but that goes without saying. JoMarie Payton being the queen diva of the Winslow family like she always has been and always will be, Telma Hopkins remains one of the most gorgeous (and underrated) beauties in the history of TV and music, etc. They all look like they had a blast getting together.
  8. Anne Jeffreys Has Died

    Echoing the comments on her effortless glamour and elegance. I first became familiar with her through reruns of Fiiiiiiiiiinder of Lost Loves years ago and then became interested in her GH appearances. I'd love to see Topper show up somewhere, but I guess it's pretty to easy to find episodes online.
  9. Coronation Street: Discussion Thread

    RIP, Liz Dawn. Vera had the most interesting voice of all Corrie characters, IMO.
  10. Classic TV pet peeve: when a show used mismatched fonts in the opening credits. Looking at you, seasons 2-5 of Eight is Enough.

    1. Khan


      I'm looking at seasons 7 and 8 of "The Facts of Life."  Especially because Kim Fields was stuck with the previous font for the LONGEST time.

  11. I uploaded that! I downloaded it a TV museum website, and it stayed on YT for at least a year before it was bumped. I'm shocked it hasn't popped back up since then. My very first soap-watching experience on YouTube was Tom and Erica's 1978 wedding from AMC. The second we had our high-speed connection set up, I watched it on our old desktop. I couldn't control my happiness!
  12. Undoing the daytime soap stigma

    At this point, 87 years into the genre's existence with the best of those years way behind us, I say that we, collectively, should not give a f.uck about what people outside of the community think. I've done a lot of talking about the stigma on these boards and what I believe exists the "daytime ghetto," but none of the things associated with said stigma can ever stop me from relaxing in front of old school AMC on YouTube after a long day. So, again, who gives a sh!t?
  13. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Yet Maree looks better than him!
  14. I can't believe they still have live performers during the memorial montage on awards programs.

      @Nothin'ButAttitude Yes, I've just checked and David Canary was included in the primetime Emmy memoriam. The clip they chose was a still from Bonanza.

      Jeanne Cooper was also a pretty prolific character actress on westerns and other drama series from the 50s through the 70s.

      Well Agnes did write the primetime mini-series Manions of America, starring Pierce Brosnan.

  15. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    I follow him on Instagram, and like I stated a few weeks ago in a status update - I can NOT believe he is just a few years from 40.
