  1. Oh, no indeed! I was hoping my response didn't sound catty. I legit feel like a slacker for not simply going back a few pages, especially considering it was mentioned a day before Ray's passing, which I came here to post about. Unpopular opinion, but I thought it looked good on paper. I remember people being upset at Zoe being a lesbian transwoman because it was perceived as just a way to get Bianca "with a man," but I wonder how that would play today. Jeff Carlson didn't half-play that character, that's for sure, and the chemistry was there with Eden. It would have been interesting to see her last longer or visit more, but I always felt she was such a character "of the time" that her politics would have softened over the years. Or, maybe Amy would have evolved into the character that Rosemary would go on to play on How to Survive a Marriage (feminist psychologist). Maybe she could have been one of the few characters allowed to see Tad as a pig and call him out on it. Re: Ruth's hair. I've been amazed by that poor nurse's cap holding on for dear life for years and years. You just know something's in there holding it up.
  2. Whoops, I guess I shouldn't have chosen to be lazy and not flip back a few pages (though I did find the energy to go back two years to see if it was discussed then). I agree with both of y'all so much re: McT. As much as some have tried to claim that the woman never had any business writing the show or that she was just a hack who did not care about the show or its legacy, that is just simply not true. A hack? Sure. Employed far longer than she needed to be? Absolutely. Destructive in the long-term? Yes! Completely ignorant as to what the All My Children vibe is? Not by a longshot - especially compared to who she immediately succeeded and preceded for her 2000s run.
  3. There's a certain soap uploader on YT, and I very often worry about his sanity/well-being...

      Maybe I'm mistaken but I think I know who that might be. I don't subscribe but I have seen a few videos and yeah, it's a fine line between zany and bizarre. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else?

      I have to see this tbh. Can someone DM me the username?

  4. I can't remember if this has been posted here or not. It's been on YT for over two years, and I'm just seeing it for the first time. Courtesy of the actress playing the little girl. Of course, my biggest soap "Make-a-Wish" is to see every second of 70s AMC, but at this point, I really need to see this era of Anne and Paul before Elizabeth's death and Anne's descent into madness. We have a small handful of clips showing her raging hard, but what was she like on a day-to-day basis before her life came crumbling down? She's so bubbly and cool in the 1970-1971 episodes/clips, but what was the "mid-section" like for the character?
  5. Rest in peace to the stalwart unsung hero of AMC, a patriarch in every sense of the word. Susan is now the lone survivor of the original cast who stuck around and took the show into its 20th and 30th years. I hope she is in good spirits as she mourns the passing of a longtime friend and her beloved mom.
  6. That was the first (and only) time I watched the "current" Corrie as it aired, and it led to me falling deeper in love with the better eras of the show. I think any exposure is good, especially since it hasn't been seen on regular US television in maybe 20-30 years?
  7. I saw some episodes from the same period pop up on the BritishTV channel a few mornings ago. I really need Pluto to just release the schedules for their various channels. It's hard to decide to watch something regularly without it.
  8. Currently watching a TPIR rerun where one of the showcases is a salute to ATWT. Prizes are a new camera (a nod to Gunnar's job as a photographer), trips to New York and Spain presented by Meg Ryan and Frank Runyeon, a sailboat (where "Tom and Margo rekindled their love"), and an appearance as an extra on ATWT.
  9. Dynasty seasons 1-8 were on regular Amazon Prime with no commercials. DALLAS is the one that's on Prime via IMDb TV. Dynasty season 9 has always been available for purchase on Prime, and now the rest of the series is purchase-only. Peyton Place would be incredible on streaming. I guess it comes down to releasing them on DVD first.
  10. It's not a big deal to anyone but me, but I watched AMC for the very first time 20 years ago today lol It was the first time I ever watched a soap for myself and not just because someone else was watching it, and it began my long long loooooong love affair with our beloved genre.

      @cct Jesse McCartney's JR caught my eye (I was 11, and he was a hot older guy - at age 14) in a scene with David at Pine Valley High, and years later, I finally looked it up to see what episode it was and found it to be 6/07/2001. I was so young, my thoughts barely matter, but I was into Laura/Leo/Greenlee the most.

  11. I know him best for scaring the every-living SHT out of me as a child in Tales from the Hood. Knowing that he was still alive and well all these years made it less scary, but now, I don't know...
  12. I think there's probably a -85934805% chance of anyone at all giving you grief over posting this on YouTube. There are literally hundreds of video clips of much more well-known soaps' theme songs (video and audio) online. You're not getting arrested or fined for posting this one. If you're still wary, you can upload the clip, send it to me, and I'll post it on my account. I ain't scurred.
  13. Gavin MacLeod's death is a shock even though he was 90 years old. I remember watching MTM growing up with the knowledge that they were all still alive except for Ted Knight. Now, it really is just Ed and Betty. On the other hand, Gavin is the first Love Boat regular to pass away. It just feels like another reminder of how long it's been since both of those shows were in their heydays.
  14. Bert really needed her ass kicked for this one, but it's classic soap. Real, raw, low-key a trainwreck because how in the world can this woman defend her philandering husband who has shat on her so many times, but extremely human. Poor hyperemotional Ed is trying to uphold what he's always been taught is right, but he's panicking in the face of that very bastion of righteousness degrading the morals that she herself had taught him. Flawless soap.
  15. These lists are just so pointless - one hundred sitcoms...why? Who in the world is out there comparing and contrasting Fleabag with Sanford and Son? So many of these shows have nothing in common other than the fact that they're comedies, but that's not enough to warrant comparison, IMO. And then you have The Simpsons at number-one lol Okay...
