    Best US Soap Scenes

    I was only interested in Stephanie up to the mid-90s or so. Brad Bell made her a grotesque caricature. I still remember sitting their laughing and laughing in the awful scenes where she confronted Brooke at Big Bear and had a stroke. For me the best of B&B was always Sally, and Caroline (the first one). And Brooke up to the mid-90s.

    The Politics Thread

    Jeff Zucker boasted about how much Trump has done for them. They've only ever pretended to dislike him. It's one of many reasons I avoid that network.

    I've never seen this level of leaks on all sides. Bizarre.

    Best UK/Non-US Soap Scenes

    Seeing the Rita and Bet "PALS?? PALS!!!???" scene on here reminds me that a few weeks ago when Rita learned Norris had sold the Kabin, she shouted "PALS???!!?" I wonder if it was an homage... Anyway, I think this story is the finest EE ever told. I hated the 2017 revisit but at least it didn't ruin the original. (the Arthur/cop scenes in the above clip were very controversial, but they were honest - something EE of modern years rarely is)

    Best UK/Non-US Soap Scenes

    Knots Landing had a good scene like that as well, when Valene moved back into their house on the cul-de-sac. Elsie's exit was so understated yet also unbearably sad, especially knowing Pat would be gone within a few years. Corrie had a real sense of melancholy for its first few decades, yet also had trust in viewers to not manipulate them the way that Aidan's suicide tried to do.

    Best/Worst Network Promo Campaigns

    She's coming back for a regular stint in a few months, this was just a return until she went into panto, but the week was not up to much, to put it kindly.

    Best/Worst Network Promo Campaigns

    UK soap promos have had excellent promos but many times the stories are nowhere near as good. Here are the two strongest examples of good promo [!@#$%^&*] story. There's also this promo, which is just...hilarious, and completely out of proportion with anything that actually happened onscreen, but Julie Goodyear sells it.

    That's a shame about Sheri. I wonder if she was let go. What a waste.

    Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    LVP is Lucy and the others are Charlie Brown. They never learn. It's been nearly ten years of this crap. RHOBH could have been so much more.
