  1. Y&R March 2018 Discussion

    The highlight of the day was the Brooks/Jill/Billy/Esther. Lori and Leslie referring to Jill as 'Jill FOSTER', Esther referring to Liz as her mother, Jill referring Liz to Billy as 'Your Grandma Liz'. Also, Jill telling Billy about her and Stuart...something he apparently didn't know about. Him telling her that she had no right to judge him having an affair with Jacks wife as she basically did the same thing. I love that the show acknowledged that Jill wasn't always a Fenmore LOL. Most younger fans are probably blind-sided.

    No, DA's Jill married John and Kay tried to break them up because of there friendship. BD was all ready back by the time Victor and Nikki married the first time.
  3. The Ultimate Soap Opera Book Master List

    Recently, I came across this 1976 Dissertation. https://core.ac.uk/display/47022837 https://etd.ohiolink.edu/pg_10?0::NO:10:P10_ACCESSION_NUM:osu1212158551 In it, it discusses the creation of a show, specifilly, an episode. In the appendix there are 2 OLTL breakdowns, one hand written, and the script to the typed breakdown. It analyzes the overall creative process and compares long term projections to the breakdowns to the final script. The illustrating points are fascinating. <a href="http://s1337.photobucket.com/user/andrew_wyatt1/media/Screenshot%2059_zpsk2vzjt9l.png.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o664/andrew_wyatt1/Screenshot%2059_zpsk2vzjt9l.png" border="0" alt="OLTL 1995 BD photo Screenshot 59_zpsk2vzjt9l.png"/></a> @EricMontreal22 It mentions All Her Children...
  4. The Essence of Soap Operas

    If we are talking about "Daytime Dramatics" only I'd say soaps are character studies. I never understood why certain themes are frowned upon, such as, Action/Adventure and Sci-Fi. Done right, they serve the same purpose. Look at Star Trek and the first SW Trilogy or video games like Mass Effect and The Last of Us. It seems as if effective soaps have a certain theme or core built in. DAYS's is built into each opening. Guiding Light was that old poem "There is a Destiny that makes us Brothers..." its spinoff, RtoH, was that if you only consider your own happiness you'll endanger other peoples happiness.
  5. Dark Shadows

    Ive yet to watch all in while. I do like the B&W feel. I kinda think that when the 'noir' revival came in the mid-70s it would've reverted. The show was like a 'Soap Noir' with a supernatural twist (albiet, later on). I do feel that the show could've conintued by scaling the supernatural stuff for most of the year but then build it during the summer/winter.
  6. I was thinking today on how characters of different soaps would act towards other characters. Erica Kane and Victor Newman (80s era) Palmer Courtlandt vs Alexandra Spaulding. Sally Spectra vs Pheobe Wallingford
  7. I tottaly forgot about his kids. I remember how odd it was that they didn't get a mention. I also wonder why Carol Burnett/Eunice didnt make any appearances afterwords.

  9. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    I won't give spoilers about tomorrow BUT I will say this much. The Hillary Hour stuff was, imo, good. like, it felt like an actual interview you'd see on a morning show as they were getting technical with talkign about the formulation. Other things stood out but it seems more...detailed.
  10. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Hey, can you PM me the episode?
  11. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    That was Fridays cliffhanger. So, I'm not one to really complain but is this a fuc#ing micraphone!!!! If it is I think they should end the show after the 45th...LOL a 6 month wrap-up story ? Give nods to the past then mercy-kill. IF this were another soap I wouldn't care but this is the soap that was supposed to end that kinda tomfoolery.

    Wasn't Lucas and lance a paralell to Lori and Leslie though? Like, one being more sensual than the other?
