  1. The soap opera writers' discussion

    I've always been curious about Douglas Anderson's tenure at Guiding Light. I wonder if he would have succeeded on a different show at the time, that wasn't ahem, dying a slow and painful death, with a better EP at the helm. I remember stumbling across a article about him via Google about him taking over GL and they made it sound the start of a new golden era almost.
  2. Any Capitol Fans Here?

    So when did Henry Sleasar leave Capitol?
  3. Days: June 2018 Discussion Thread

    I didn't find the episode all that bad. I might not have any attachment to Lani, but I felt for J.J. and Eli. Heck I even sympathized for Val. Today's show really gave Salem a sense of family and community, something reminiscent of my own soap, GL. Props to the writers and production crew.

    Does anyone remember the confrontation between Nadine and Vanessa after the truth came out about Nadine taking Bridget's baby? It was one of my earliest memories of GL, and I wish I could find it online. Such gripping scenes between MK and JC. Seeing how Nadine and Vanessa butted heads, I can't help but to think that Nadine was a substitute for Nola. I can't, however, say that I'm that mad about it, Jean Carol was phenomenal as was Nadine.
  5. Y&R: June Spoilers

    ^Don't spoil July for us. ETA: At the rate that Mal blows through stories, you probably just spoiled next week.
  6. RIP Dirty Den!

      I remember being transfixed by the old episodes and his return storyline with Sharon and Dennis. It's such a shame how it ended.

    J.J. and Theresa are the only positive thing about this show now. Casey Moss is to die for, and Ron C knows that.

    ^I agree. Can we get more shirtless scenes with him please? Unless Ron is going to redeem him, I see no other use for him, as he's another psycho/villain running around town freely.

    It's sad that with daytime today, it's either a choice between slow, stagnant writing (SSM) or rushed plot driven drivel (Mal).

      I'm watching it for pure entertainment. It's good, just as any Ryan Murphy show starts out as. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop, but so far I'm enjoying the ride two episodes into the first season.

      I've heard some good things but like Carl with it being a Ryan Murphy(overrated hack diva IMO) production I haven't checked it out myself. I also hate the high levels of pretension that comes with each of his productions.

      I am still in the middle of the first eppy.  Haven't been inspired to hurry and get it done.  We'll see.

    Great start to the season.

    Early 70s GL or Pre-Dobson era GL is such a blank slate for me. This promo and the one clip of Papa Bauer's funeral I've found online, leaves me wanting to find out more about this era

    Lynn Deerfield's Holly can be spotted in the promo.
