    Port Charles Discussion Thread

    Stevie being on Port Charles would have made more sense than most of their material.

    Any time I see that last clip I think of Big Business. City Sadie would fit right in with the Trumps...(aside from actually having money, that is).

    Cohen is right about Daily Caller. I get that a lot as well.

    The problem with Trump saying he wants a shutdown being a 'gift' for Democrats, as some are saying, is that to Trump's supporters, it is a good thing. The GOP will also see it as a good thing, as they can blame Democrats. And many of those who voted for Democrats this November will likely say that nothing has changed and Democrats taking power hasn't improved Washington, or they are being too stubborn, etc. With that said, Pelosi and Schumer have no choice but to go to a shutdown rather than accept his crap, or continue what Schumer was doing where he was trying to say that a border wall is fine just with less money attached. Unfortunately I think Democrats are going to pay the price for this shutdown, but then, some things never change.

    Pence just terrifies me on so many levels. The Pelosi-hating media is going to make a meal of this stuff for ages. I imagine Ed Rendell is on the phone somewhere right now.

    To be honest I have a feeling it's higher than that and they just aren't saying. He appeals to the worst in many.

    Guiding Light discussion thread

    I get what people are saying about San Cristobel, but I didn't mind the story in the first year or two, when the focus was on Cassie and Richard falling in love contrasting with Reva's jealousy, Cassie's money woes, etc. It was after she and Richard married that the setting should have gone for good, I think. After that it just became more and more obvious there was no story left to tell, and what we did get was just variations on crap. By the time the boring fisherman turned out to be the real king I think I'd stopped watching. (then of course he was later killed off after about 3 seconds of screentime when they decided to make his son a psycho)

    Edmund was a bit queeny, but I never really had a problem believing him with women either.

    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/12/10/supreme-court-planned-parenthood-defunding-case-845056 Chief Justice John Roberts and the newest justice, Brett Kavanaugh, joined the court's four liberal jurists in turning away a pair of petitions from Kansas and Louisiana seeking the ban on abortion providers. To all those who drove many believers away for good and did horrific damage to their cause in the long-term for the sake of short-term wins they didn't even get, all I can say is:

    I think it will just become a figurehead role or a role for someone he wants to humiliate. I wonder if Ayers cutting and running that way means Pence may start getting further phased out.

    As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    What was it they burned through most, I wonder? Maybe the stuff with the psycho nanny? Marland does spend a lot of late 1988/early 1989 phasing out material that was set up while he was on strike (like Beau and Pam). It takes a while for the show to regroup. I think it does in 1991, but the show really does become very, very bleak by 1992. I'll always wonder what might have been if he'd stayed through 93-94, which were big transition years gone wrong yet also with glimmers of potential.

    EastEnders: Discussion Thread

    The biggest problem isn't so much being depressing as how hollow it is. Meaningless and damaging.

    A tiny bit of Lee Paterson in The Immortal.

    http://www.anotherworldhomepage.com/1melissa.html Wow - she was on the show for a year! Her episodes should be on Youtube - or some of them, anyway. 1980-1982 are such huge slogs for AW a year feels like a decade...

    It feels like she's being set up for a fall.
