  1. Kenlee from AMC was more of an exercise in masochism. They de-powered a force of nature (Greenlee) down to the level of a "mild annoyance" to Kendall. I don't think Kendall ever fully apologised to Greenlee for taking away Greenlee's chance to be a mother and driving Greenlee to a mental breakdown (with Spike paying the price). The last few years of the show has been Greenlee being pushed to be a "heroine" to suit a friendship with Kendall, and never allowing her a chance to win...ever. I wonder if TPTB secretly resented Rebecca's Greenlee being more of a natural heir to Erica than any of her daughters.
  2. It's just the tip of the iceberg with Sharon's penchant for controversy... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XlwArFBK-o
  3. I'm hoping she's some connection to the Brooks family. Now, that will make my day.
  4. How many of these were actually good ideas in the long run, though? There was always something special about the the Lords (OLTL), the Brookses (Y&R), the Hortons (DAYS), the Hugheses (ATWT), and the Bauers (GL), and it was sad that later regimes have spat on their respective legacies like it was nothing and erased such heritage. What happened was frankly criminal. I would always hold All My Children at high regard for not forgetting the Martin/Kane families.
  5. I've been watching some May 1998 OLTL and I've been impressed by the surprisingly good plots going on at this time: -David Renaldi's heartwarming return. -The Georgie Murder mystery being a huge umbrella plot. -Dorian and Mel/Cassie & Kevin -Todd's vendetta against the Buchanans -Todd and Téa being their twisted and problematic best with their constant arguments and such. -Drew Buchanan being the douchebag we can all root against. -Alright, so Sam was a dead fish, but without him...we wouldn't have been introduced to Lindsay (the perfect nemesis to Nora). JFP and Pam Long did a great job livening up the show after the utter banality of the Labine era. Anything is better than Nora's menopause.
  6. Thank goodness. I hope his pets, the McQueen family, get wiped out. They have collectively lowered the sophistication of this show.
  7. Jensen might need a job with Supernatural ending.
  8. I was looking back at this thread and I \cannot\ with Travis and Barbara's smugness. They had more of a role raising Bianca, and if anyone were to blame for her issues...it was them, not Erica (who always loved Bianca).
  9. When the best storyline is some half-baked menopausal plot with Nora, you know you've gone from Soap Opera to Lifetime Network.
  10. I don't know why OLTL was considered "great" in '97, considering the Labine writing regime took a wrecking ball to any sort of intrigue or energy from the Gottlieb era. It was endless Patrick/Marty and later Tea and her doomed romance with Todd. Say what you want about JFP, but she had the thankless task of injecting excitement, rivalries, and drama (Georgie's Death, the Bo/Nora/Lindsey triangle) back into the show after the dullness of this era.
  11. Yet no one complained when Jamie Luner was parading around as Liza or Linsey Godfrey as Sarah. The sexist double standard needs to stop.
  12. Farah is just fine. It was just a bunch of unfortunate situations (oversensitive fans on the flight she was in/Crystal Hunt & Scott Evans being junkies/people bugging her on social media before the Myspace post) rolled in one.
  13. OLTL was full of this: *Dorian going lesbian for a few months. *1968 Time Travel. *Eterna *The whole beaver plot. *The Stacy pregnancy nonsense. *Anything related to David Vickers during the last years of the ABC run.
  14. Have there been any notable non-parent/child relationships that seem to supersede actual parent/child relationships on soaps? The one that comes to mind is Greenlee/Erica, who seemed more of a mother-daughter relationship than the watered down Kendall. I liked how they were always set up to clash throughout, while Erica just seemed to drop all her issues with Kendall for no discernable reason after she was sent to rehab post-Vegas. I liked how Erica seemed to resent Greenlee's old-money heritage, as it clashed with her being the working-class girl that had to scrape to the top. I never bought the saccharine lovey-dovey thing they were trying to go with Erica/AM's Kendall.
  15. I hope this convinces Shannen Doherty to take part in the reunion. This death is really sad for some reason, and I wasn't even a Dylan stan.
  16. Not Luke Perry...and 90210 was getting relevant again. They better not exploit his death for ratings.

      They need to scrap the reboot and just do a reunion movie  with the characters dealing with his death and the aftermath. 

  17. Your faith in the humanity of soap viewers is a bit misplaced. The same viewers who cheered on GH Laura marrying her rapist? Slobbered over Franco? Couldn't be bothered to use "Hula" to watch OLTL 2.0? Get icked out at any sign of homosexuality? Yeah, doesn't sound like a progressive bunch.
  18. It's time to re-build the Winters family, and with the sad death of KSJ, a huge cornerstone black actor has left the stage. Who would you cast as Neil to carry on Kristoff's legacy and ensure the continuation of the Winters Family? Perhaps Terrell Tilford or someone of that caliber?
  19. Young Peggy has a striking resemblance to Lexi Ainsworth. Lexi would be a good SORAS for Sydney DiMera.
  20. I'll always love Farah for getting rid of the insufferable cokehead Scott Evans and the violent criminal in Crystal Hunt from OLTL in one fell swoop. Can't wait for what Mimi will do.
  21. The fact that Farah would deign herself to grace the set of low-budget DAYS is like manna from the heavens. This is gonna be fun.

      As the wife of a poker champ, Farah the New Money Socialite didn't need to come back to DAYS,  so her doing this seems more of a nostalgia run.

      That's right!  Someone did marry her.  Ok.

      I'm not one to bash someone's looks but in the new Days Promo she looks like she's been embalmed.  Damn, Days is too good for her, she's trash

  22. Would it break the budget less to do the show Hollyoaks/Peapack (but better) style? I think opening up the space, can do wonders...and since LA has decent weather for most of the year (except for the blazing July/August), it can be done.
  23. I get it; she loves John now, but she loves Will too and she literally turned a psycho loose on him. Sami isn't above her own unhinged behaviour.
  24. Kristen is a psycho that set all this up, but you're telling me Sami wouldn't have shot John (someone with whom she had issues going back decades) in order to seek out EJ (the love of her life)? This is Samantha Gene we're talking about.
