  1.  I know its a satire but American Vandal still looks like  waste of money and a try hard show.

      A massive waste of money is an understatement. I couldn't imagine spending time watching an entire film on this- the trailer was quite enough. SMH.  There are so many talented  filmmakers who'd like the opportunity to present work on Nexflix.

  2. Jesse McCartney released a new soap opera parody themed music video. The soap is called The Young & The Wasted

      I'm a Young Justice fan so I knew he was still acting. Singing he started back up last year. I liked his last song. Not impressed by this song or video. And his plastic face. Yikes!

      I wonder @Khan if he'll also do a parody song of that mediocre beach TV show about  he was on where Shawn Christian played his dad or something lol.

      @soapfan770 That one was one of my shows as a teen. Lol. I loved Summerland. Shawn Christian didnt play his dad. He played his aunt's on and off boyfriend. 

  3. Been a minute since I watched DAYS. It's on in the breakroom at work today. What the f**k is this embarrassing bs onscreen?

      OMFG, it's a one time Halloween episode, geesh chill

      Why couldn't they just have a normal Halloween episode with people dressing up and going to parties and taking their kids out?

      Because that is not how Ron Carlivati works. ;) 

  4. Can't stand when people use the term Soap 101

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      People are using that? Why? 

      Now that I think of it I have myself, a few times, but I try to cut back.

      When I was in graduate school, there was a course in writing for the soaps and even then, it was never called Soap 101.:lol:  It was called Writing for the Soap Opera.

      Basically they use it to excuse predictable cliche writing

  5. Jonathan Bennett won't let us forget he peaked in 2004.  Watching Celeb Big Brother

  6. Love this trend of Twitter right now #TheTitleofMySoapOpera

  7. Maurice Benard as John Gotti. Lifetime just never wants to make a good biopic.

      They have to go with whoever they can afford and this guy was undoubtedly afford. I've never watched GH, but I've see enough promos to know that he a 99 Cent Only level actor.

      Well, it could be worse.

       

      I'm kidding, it couldn't be any worse.

      He did play Desi Arnaz in biopic back in the early 90s.. when he still had potential to be a good performer.

      OMG!!! I had to do a double take, since it was 2007 when they cancelled the show....
      that's nice that they are doing this, as many (myself included) are still very loyal to this show.......and so far seems like a good lineup! my beloved Juliet Mills, and LH/EM....

  8. Stumbled across a movie starring Haley Pullos, Christel Khalil, Lauren Koslow, and Dana Sparks on IMDb.  Whoever did casting just doesnt want it to succeed!

      OMG, seriously? That's such a tragic cast. My God.

    2. ReddFoxx

      There are quite a few movies out there with questionable soap talent.

    3. frequentsoapfan

      Clearly it's made for Lifetime.

  9. Time to go on another hiatus from soaps. None of them have anything interesting me at the moment and I'm doing a lot more cringing than anything else during all of them.

      I keep up thru Twitter.  I'm 3 eppies behind on GH.  This is a theme for me lately.  When I finally watch them, I end up ff to the end to see what's up the following eppy.  Trash all around!

      Y&R is always on in my workplace, but yeah. Too much freely available content of higher quality or entertainment value.

    3. frequentsoapfan

      frequentsoapfan

      DAYS is always on in my workplace as well as GH being on in one of the breakrooms. Sometimes people stop eating their lunch just to cringe.

  10. Anytime a d-list celebrity is winking at you after describing a school's programs, that lets you know to move the hell on to a more credible school.

  11. A little salty that Vixen and Static are getting cartoons on an online platform that barely has viewers yet DC is working on a live action show about Superman's grandpa

  12. A man with 22 kids from 14 women may be getting a reality show. SMDH

      Sadly, people will tune in to it.

  13. ABC is cancelling all their shiit shows. When is GH getting their announcement? 

  14. About 99% of movies about a farm are about the farmost almost being taken away. There's always some villain waiting to take a farm away and turn it into the next big shopping center

      Field Of Dreams was great

      Does Witness count as farm movie where no one tries to take over a farm? 

    3. Khan

      Khan

      Was "Places in the Heart" about a farm?  I remember Sally Field literally working her fingers to the bone, picking enough cotton to pay off the taxes or mortgage.

  15. All my Viacom channels are currently dropped on DirectTV. They better hurry up and fix it!

      I called them. They are taking $5 off my bill for 3 months and Showtime channels free for 6.

      I'll call them too!

  16. Almost felt nostalgia for TWoP then remembered what an overall shity board it was by the end.

      I never did their soap boards. I did used to lurk the soap gossip thread. I remember how they used to tear into Steve Burton for that health drink he was always shilling. I can't remember the name of it. And folks just stayed making up stories about Jacob Young's sexuality.

    3. MissLlanviewPA

      Monavie! Ugh, he even brought it into the show at one point; they even lost Tropicana as a sponsor over it.

      And yeah, JY was the answer to every BI. I loved that.

    4. frequentsoapfan

      frequentsoapfan

      Some of their gossip was just so obviously fake. And of course their faves were untouchable

  17. Always twitter drama about GH

      Goodness. I never imagined KA would become such a huge topic of the soap world, week in and week out. I still remember when the main interest about her was when she was going to stop singing.

      I wondered what her tweet was about, I thought it was the PP situation

  18. Am I the only one tired of the Back from the Dead trope on soaps?

      I've always wanted RJ to be gay too so Ridge could have a hard time with it, but that was somewhat scrapped when Bill tried pegging Ridge as being gay as Ridge was in a photo at a gay pride parade. However, the story might still be able to told but with Brooke being the intolerant parent. But it's still hard for her too as she easily accepted Maya. 

       

      This is what happens when you try and make all the characters be politically correct....

      I too had in mind for Brooke to be a little "weirded" out at first but have Ridge totally accept causing a bit of tension which Brooke would eventually get over....for some reason I think it would be more interesting if maybe Thomas turned out to be homophobic and totally shuns R.J out....which deep down would be because he's jealous of Ridge being more of a better father to R.J then Thomas himself...

      As for R.J's lover....I know the "beauty and the geek" thing is something everyone is tired about since maybe Patrick/Sabrina on GH but I did have in mind for R.J to maybe fall in love with a gay nerdy interm at Forrester (who might turn out to be related to a past character) IDK but I like the idea of R.J though he is gay being this very handsome well built guy, and falling for a computer geek boy (who would eventually look just as handsome after a makeover)

      Soaps cant even write proper romances between straight people lately.

      Friends With Better Lives, Anatomy Of Violence, Occult, Divorce: A Love Story, Reckless, bad Teacher, About A Boy, I was excited for Pulling but not now that Mandy Moore has exited.

      "Negro, please!"  I love pie as much as the next fat bitch, but ain't no pie THAT good.  (This is directed at the guy in the video, btw.  Not you, YRBB.)  Girlfriend needs her some Jesus.  Better yet, she need to put down the damn pie and get herself a man.
