  1. That is the explanation that they found acceptable, so it seems.
  2. Intrigued to see where Ranked-choice voting leads NYC in their mayoral primary race, considered to be a defacto election. Although, tbh, nothing is a given these days.
  3. Indeed it was but I was watching on and off (sometimes more off than on, I admit) until I finally quit watching altogether. I would also say it was horrific for more than seven years, it's just that there were one or two mildly interesting stories to paper over this fact.
  4. Interesting. WADA and ITF are saying that Yastremska has committed a doping violation but they accept her explanation of how it happened and deem it to be through no fault or negligence on her part.
  5. I gave up on the show in the final five/six months. The storytelling seemed very lazy to me.
  6. ESPN is also shoe-horning Wimbledon Qualifying matches onto their ESPN+ service, which I won't be subscribing to.
  7. Not saying anybody here has said this but, when I have read some other threads, I often get the idea that people want older characters to be involved, yes meddle in their children's lives, rather than have active stories of their own. I have heard this of Victor and Nikki on Y&R as people think that they drain too much focus from younger characters. It's not my opinion, although giving them storylines more suitable for twenty year olds isn't the answer either. Having her closeted husband canoodling with Luke seemed very 1995 to me.
  8. That seems more akin to being a shining star on top of a massive dung heap.
  9. It just feels as if people forget that the series didn't begin and end with Marland's tenure. Lucinda's vitality as a character should have boosted as Lily became more and more entrenched in adult life, yet Lucinda didn't go in that direction in the character's latter years. Other than having Lucinda stricken with illness, what was really done with the character to show her as a vital, spirited woman? When Lily became a mother and it was clear that she was fully on her own as a woman, would have been the perfect time to give Lucinda a new path. I don't even remember Lucinda driving much
  10. They could have done all of this after Marland's death. The characters all outlived him. Why didn't they do it?
  11. In a way, I do agree with this sentiment but it won't likely be China in years to come but a country where even cheaper labor can be exploited like Vietnam and Thailand. In fact, this is already happening. In a decade, or so, it is unlikely to be China though.
  12. A more notable moderator would definitely help. Nobody should feel obligated to watch a moderator or host they don't enjoy. There's also a thought lurking in the back of my mind that if someone, say another SoapClassics were doing research to see if there were enough interest to try to secure another agreement with a P&G to do a compilation set or better yet a streaming platform, they would look at those paltry numbers and assume that the interest in these soaps have surely dissipated and drop the idea. Far-fetched, I know but the SoapsClassics folks had to have gotten the idea to re
  13. That's exactly what I meant-- the current soaps like Y&R and B&B regularly draw in the tens of thousands for these livestreams (you can hardly call them reunions when the shows are still airing), while most of the ones featuring cancelled shows, which barely get 2k, are languishing. I can see a scenario where Alan pivots away from the P&G soaps and does more Livestream with the current soaps and possibly some past primetime stars (like when he did w/Allison Arngrim). There's more clicks in it. Seems as if this might be one of many reasons why there
