  1. Another World

    The most of I’ve actually seen of Willis so far (yet hope springs eternal) is the temporary Iris attacking him because she couldn’t get at the already-dead Janice after Brian (the Only Sane Person in Bay City for several years) told them what happened in St. Croix. Was Willis recast at some point? Maybe if so, a softer actor would have necessitated a change of heart in the character?
  2. Another World

    There was Tracy, who almost raised Matthew with Russ until Mac decided at the last minute he wanted to raise Matthew himself. *facepalm* MAC... really? Back to Tracy, Jason Dunlap was apparently responsible for her death because he was trying to kill Russ but got Tracy instead. I’ve read that Sharlene (played by LH) was afraid of him, but he also couldn’t bring himself to hurt her either... it was all pre-reformed Willis’s fault, he was the one who told Russ about Sharlene’s past and then had the nerve to be remorseful about it only after the irreparable damage had been done... Seriously, what was up with that generation of Frames? Even Jamie barely escaped that legacy of blaming everyone but themselves for their issues.
  3. Another World

    I’ve been reading the AWHP recaps and watching the 1979-1982 episodes available on YT, and I’ve got to say, Russ treated Sharlene very badly (not that her worthless brother Willis - were there ANY Frames other than Steve and Frankie and Dean who didn’t blame the world for their problems - or spineless Sharlene herself helped matters any), but his life just got worse and worse afterwards. Did he really have two wives pass away one after the other? I’m not sure I even want to watch the hatchet job they’ll do to poor Russ to justify poor pathetic heroine Sharlene keeping Josie from Russ, given I’m already seeing it being laid down pretty thick with Sharlene vs. Rachel regarding Sharlene’s crazy sister (ran in the family) Janice, who tried to kill Mac (and Rachel and Mitch). I’m literally stopping myself from yelling at YouTube, “Screw you, Sharlene! And your brother Jason too!”
  4. Doctor Who

    Good luck, David. I’ll check this out for him despite the fact that I LOATHE Lena Dunham. Christian movies are probably preferable to working with good ol’ Lena.
  5. Front burner to forgotten

    I always kind of felt bad for the AW fans who came to ATWT about Jake’s death, which really served really no purpose, especially since he had found happiness again with Molly. At least neither ATWT nor GL killed Cass Winthrop during any of his appearances.
  6. Classic GH Thread

    BYE Guza and BYE Tony Geary, who cheerled him all the way when it was Genie who kept Geary relevant past his - what was it, six month contract? ETA: Substitute stronger language for BYE
  7. Dark Shadows

    I’m watching the episode where Quentin threw the rule book completely out the window and leveled with Roger (episode 958 during the Leviathan storyline) and I’m completely spellbound. No matter how Roger was watered down after Barnabas showed up, I can’t help thinking that he was a huge reason why the show survived long enough to go completely nuts and I can’t help wondering what might have been if Roger had been recruited into Barnabas and Julia’s occult detectives league.
  8. Another World

    Whatever happened to Brian Bancroft? It seems like he was such an integral supporting character for so long and then it seems like he just disappeared sometime in 1985, with not even a “so long” scene. I wonder how long Brian and Iris would have lasted if Bev wasn’t headed off to Texas and Paul Stevens staying on Another World. I haven’t been able to see much of those two, but I got the impression that Brian’s paternalism (reasonably fair for the time and I thought Stevens made it endearing rather than infuriating) mixed with Iris’s daddy issues actually made them a surprisingly reasonably functional relationship.
  9. "Murphy Brown" revival coming to CBS

    The first questions that need to be answered are: how did Murphy get banned from the GW Bush and Obama White Houses and hopefully that’s exposition while she’s explaining to Frank and Jim how she got banned from the Trump White House. You know it happened.
  10. Vet actor returns to Days

    I’m looking forward to seeing Matt Ashford as Jack again.
  11. Most Ridiculous Soap Moments

    Alan and Hope on Guiding Light, maybe?
  12. Former MLB Cy Young winner Roy Halliday (1977-2017)

    You’d think he wouldn’t be as loved in Philadelphia as he was and is, but everyone I know around here has been hit unexpectedly hard by this news. Awful news. I feel terrible for his parents, his wife and sons losing him at probably the worst time of year. Not that there’s ever a good time to lose a loved one. Rest in peace, Doc. May you be breaking faces in Doctober forever in the afterlife.
  13. Y&R November 2017 Discussion Thread

    Just proves people are far more stupid and far more easily entertained by nonsensical drivel than they used to be.
  14. Y&R: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    I already miss Sally and Kay.
  15. GH: October 2017 Discussion Thread

    Who is “u” and why do you think we care what you told them?
  16. "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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. They bring Will back alive, but Jack has to still be a ghost? Bleh.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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."
  24. 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.
