  1. "Sister Sister" could be getting a revival

    I’d be here for Sister, Sister if Tim Reid and Jackee were involved. Loved Ray and Lisa.
  2. DAYS: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    I’d be okay with Paul simply disappearing rather than draw this thing out and throw him under the bus for either Will or Sonny, neither of whom behaved well during their marriage (which was just as premature as any marriage in this day and age with both parties involved under the age of 25). Then again, I do remember what Ron did to my beloved Patrick and Robin. Be wary, Days fans. Be wary.
  3. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    If she messes up again, I’m sure this poor gentleman will be the first in line to make sure she never has an opportunity to do it a third time. What a heartbreaking situation, all the way around. No winners indeed.
  4. Soap Vets That You Never Got Their Appeal

    Don’t know if he’s considered a vet, but Chandler Massey is pretty high up on my list. For the life of me, I don’t see what’s so appealing about him. Maura West is another I’ve never understood. To this day, I have never understood why Guiding Light felt it needed Kim Zimmer back in 1995.
  5. They bring Will back alive, but Jack has to still be a ghost? Bleh.
  6. Most Ridiculous Soap Moments

    Speaking of babies, three particularly notorious late-in-life babies come to my mind. GL's Reva gave birth to Colin after a well-publicized menopause story. And as much as I love the Carl/Rachel story on AW (she paid forward to Carl the gift of redeeming love Mac had given her), that entire story with the twins was pretty ridiculous, considering it was about thirty years after the birth of Rachel's first child.
  7. Will Horton vs Jason Morgan

    I don't really care about either character. I'm less likely to pop in to either show with those characters back.
  8. Doctor Who

    Peter Davison didn't say he was less than thrilled. He expressed one thought that worried him while expressing approval of the person they cast. And he's apparently been run off Twitter by abusive Doctor Who "fans."
  9. Guiding Light discussion thread

    I didn't send anyone a message, and I do appreciate the videos provided, but I also wish there was a limit to how many can go into one post or one page. It's only happened to me a handful of times, but I've also had this thread crash on my iPhone 7 before. Again, I do thank everyone who goes to the trouble of posting videos for our viewing pleasure, but I wish we could get some actual discussion of those clips back up.
  10. DAYS Return Spoiled?

    I like Jack, so I think it'd be awesome if he came back.
  11. Doctor Who

    I'm okay with this. I didn't need a female Doctor to make my life complete like so many on the Internet seem to have, but if I can't have one season of Capaldi out from under Moffat after his strongest turn was when he was finally out from under Clara or a miniseries with Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor (not giving up on that yet!), I'm good with this. Though I do fear the possibility that the gimmicks that tanked Michelle Gomez's Master in my eyes (starting with "Missy," everything screamed "He's a WOMAN NOW!!") might prove too tempting. I want the Doctor to be written as a person, just like the Doctor has always been. Whitaker can take care of the rest.
  12. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Sorry, but I have to disagree about the Danny/Michelle story. As much as I side-eyed Rebecca Budig, the Michelle who actually fell in love with the violent criminal who forced her to marry him was a complete stranger to me and so I didn't care about her or her criminal husband. And I so very much resented the attempts to make the gangster Santoses look better by making Ed an absentee father who just didn't give a damn. For that reason alone, I refuse to accept anything Santos.
  13. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Nick and Susan were so sweet, and as a long term Alex fan, I really appreciated that the writers didn't go the easy route of Nick and Susan leaving town to get away from Alex's toxic disapproval. Alex ADORED Susan before she and Nick started dating, and it was so good to see them not fighting over Nick's personal life, whatever else was going to hell in a handbasket that year (the entire show going back to centering around Reva, Phillip, and Harley - though it was later) that the memory of Nick and Susan just makes me smile. I love them.
  14. Guiding Light discussion thread

    The first sign of a pulse I ever got from Crampton was with Hoxby's Cutter and Michael O'Leary as Rick and she was on her way out at both points! What could have been, in both cases! Marcy Walker and Barbara Crampton are classic examples of not adjusting stories to fit what the actors bring to the table. They held onto the idea of Marcy as leading (though I liked her with both Newman's Josh and Hoxby's Cutter) far too long and they also held onto Nick and Mindy opposite a completely different Alexandra for far too long. Chris Bernau was equally awful compared to Not!Billy opposite Marie Wallace on Dark Shadows in the same storyline, but I blame her for that one, considering what he achieved as Alan Spaulding.
  15. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Wasn't NuBilly played by the acTORR who played Sky Rumson on Dark Shadows? I literally laughed for DAYS when I made that connection when I made it that far on my Dark Shadows DVDs. "NOT!Billy!" Fun times, I tell you.
  16. Guiding Light discussion thread

    For me, Tangie's initial run got better with age, especially since Josh's prospects took a steep downhill turn after Annie 1.0 (the non-insane one). I still hate the pairing with Alan that turned out to be her swan song, however. It's a shame they never seriously considered pairing her with Patrick Cutter. The chemistry wouldn't set the world on fire, but it was serviceable.
  17. Guiding Light discussion thread

    This is such a great period that's being uploaded right now, and this dude's been doing it for several years now. I'd say it wasn't until mid 1994 that the wheels really started to come off and Reva's actual return was the death knell. I'm so glad to be able to relive this great period and my first real soap crush David Grant isn't far off.
  18. Guiding Light discussion thread

    That's definitely Hoxby.
  19. Guiding Light discussion thread

    The harbinger of the end.
  20. Another World

    I think a combination of Jensen Buchanan and someone making the decision to turn Vicky into a Mary Sue (complete with at least three male protectors at all times, including ghost Ryan) completely destroyed the character Anne Heche and, to a lesser degree Ellen Wheeler, had created. Why Ryan wanted anything to do with her after the whole Kirkland mess is completely beyond me. He should have left that ring on the ground where it belonged and bounced for good that time.
  21. Favorite soap opera fathers

    I'll have to agree on Mac Cory. I think John Abbott was a pretty good father overall.
  22. GH: May 2017 Discussion Thread

    Can I sit with you two? I adored those two so much I even adored their break-up scene. It was more mature than I would have expected at that point.
  23. A new Y&R Return

    Didn't that story get him canned and led to DM's departure from AMC? I can see him being gunshy when it comes to the bigots in the audience, but I've never seen anything regarding his feelings on the stories (Cliff and Angie and Jack and Luan) other than veiled comments with no credible sources to back it up. Then again, I always got the impression he does give off a bit of a douchey vibe, so what do I know?
  24. I don't think you should. When he dialed it back, I thought some of his performances in the roles I've seen (Bucky and Buzz) were masterful. Unfortunately, he got more and more over the top in the last decade of GL. But I felt his Emmy wins were more legitimately earned than, say, Natalia Livingston or Tom Pelphrey or half of Anthony Geary's.
