  1. Latest SOD

    I wish they'd do more 'in-depth- articles instead of 2 or 3 page fluff pieces on an actor just to splash him or her on the cover. How about interview someone on the directing team? Ask them how they got into directing and why he or she likes it. Other work they've done before daytime. What their job entails at the soap. What their "vision" or "style" is that they are trying to bring to the show. I would be as interested about some of those behind the scenes as I am those on the screen....and considering who we are talking about on the screen, I may not care about them at all. Interview a staff writer. Interview a prop manager. Anything other than the same ol' same ol'.
  2. LATEST RATINGS: June 11-15, 2018

    I miss the days of Friday cliffhangers that had you talking/thinking about the show all weekend in anticipation for Monday's episode. Now I just look forward to it being Friday so I have two days coming that I DON'T have to watch.
  3. GH: Former OLTL actor joins the show

    I guess ABC is obsessed with the younger demo.
  4. Shocking Deaths and Surprises

    Renee DiMera's death on Days at her engagement party. I was 10 and had no idea it was coming! I loved Renee. Shortly after, the reveal Tony was being held in the cell while an impostor (Andre) had taken his place. Surprised!
  5. DAYS: Actress Back?

    My hand could only hold 2 things. (Earplugs and a night mask for her scenes).
  6. DAYS: Actress Back?

    I'm glad I've stopped watching and lost interest lately. I HATED her on OLTL! Wonder if it means Bonnie will make another appearance?
  7. Another World

    I LOVED Sam and Amanda in the very beginning. They were my fave daytime couple until the writers ruined it by having Amanda be pregnant so early on. It had been such a great Romeo & Juliet type story being Rachel's daughter and Mitch's brother with Mac looking on. They should have played them up more before saddling them with a baby...to then only have Olivia thrown in with a baby of her own. Sandi Ferguson was Amanda to me although I did like Laura Moss. I remember being disappointed when Laura had been let go because I thought she was just getting into it. Matt Crane was definitely Matthew and I never liked Brian Krause or Jeff Phillips in the role. Jeff and Lisa Peluso I thought worked well together but he just wasn't Matthew. I preferred Larry Lau as Jamie over Russell Todd. (I don't really remember the others before that.) Maybe because I was a big fan of Jamie/VIcky (Anne Heche) then. I wish they had brought him back after Russell Todd. Cecile!!!!! My fave character of all-time on AW. She should have at the very least been brought on the last couple of episodes to interrupt Cass and Lila's wedding instead of the stupid Gorilla story. I think it would have been much more drama to have Cecile show up just as the wedding starts and profess her love to Cass one more time, only to be let down. While others in the audience (Rachel, Felicia, etc could make snide comments about her and show flashbacks.) My biggest gripe about the finale was how little they showed flashback history. Yes, I know, it was thrown together last minute and they had all that they could do just to end it but still......
  8. DAYS: Actor Back

    He's probably a twin or look-a-like. Ron's specialty.
  9. B&B: Actor taken off contract

    Would GH even write for Lucky if Luke isn't around and they wouldn't write for Laura? Nikolas isn't even on anymore. I guess it would be purely for Frank wanting to watch JY onscreen.
  10. B&B: Actor taken off contract

    Jeremy Horton?? (DAYS)..... Actually with JY promoting his music lately, he may not even want to be on contract anyway.
  11. B&B Actress Out

    Admittedly, I'm not a regular viewer of B&B but when I've tuned in I have found CH to be engaging and keep my interest even when the story seemed lame. I hope she gets another gig. Is she too young to be Sarah on Days? Or maybe a different relative of Maggie's? I'd like to see her kick Abby/Gabi's ass. Haha
  12. General Hospital March 2018 Discussion

    I'm not a regular GH viewer and after trying to tune in for some of today's ep I can understand. I'm sorry but if you don't have a big budget (as neither soap does these days) stop trying to do these "big events". I'm finding this to be a comedy episode. Especially, the set being used for Jason and Sam. Instead of the scenes giving off drama, I'm finding it B movie comedy. Most of these events never have any lasting impact and are completely forgotten about a month later. Another reason they don't work. This isn't really a knock specifically against GH, but against soaps in general. This doesn't bring new viewers in when it's done so badly.
  13. Characters that didn't survive a recast...

    I wasn't even in my teens yet when Taylor Miller was on AW. I don't remember disliking her exactly but she just wasn't MPK. I really liked Sally and Catlin together and after MPK left as Sally I lost interest in Catlin too. There didn't seem to be the spark anymore that TIG and MPK had together (which obviously led to them offscreen as well), Side note: The only time I liked Sharon Gabet on AW was her storyline in the triangle with Sally and Catlin when it was MPK. The deaf storyline as a friend of Zane's in the beginning I found boring although I know SG said in that podcast she enjoyed it very much. I then HATED Brittany once she became weak in the abusive Peter story.
  14. Front burner to forgotten

    AW's Lisa Grady! Couldn't stand her! She was in the (too long) triangle with Jamie and Vicky and then often the center of the Sin Stalker story. She later just simply left town.
  15. Characters that didn't survive a recast...

    How long was Taylor Miller on AW as Sally after Mary Page Keller before she was "killed off"? David Canary taking over as Steve Frame was a bust too, in my opinion. Totally different character from what little I've seen of Reinholt. Rhonda Lewin as Victoria after Ellen Wheeler was a bust but the character was later saved by Anne Heche. (THANK GOD!)
