  1. RIP Peter Hansen (GH/PC) (1921-2017)

    I didn't see this announcement posted anywhere else, but if it is feel free to merge/delete it. Peter Hansen seemed like such a nice man, and may he always be remembered with love. God rest him, and my heart is with his family, friends and colleagues like Kin Shriner, Susan Brown, etc. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/latimes/obituary.aspx?pid=185045243
  2. Days: She's baaaaaaack

    Don't get me wrong, a lot of soap villainesses can evolve into heroines or even matriarchal figures. The best example I can think of is Vicky Wyndham on AW, but she overall had a much bigger and better acting range (not to mention better writers, but hey). Playing the good girl is not AS' forte. DAYS should write and play to her strengths. She should be her generation's Beverlee McKinsey!!!
  3. Days: She's baaaaaaack

    A declawed Sami = no fun. No offense to her, but I just don't feel AS has the chops to play the pure, bonafide heroine. Her best talent is playing the instigator!!!
  4. OLTL Tribute Thread

    I found several write-ups about him that mentioned OLTL in his filmography, but imdb lists it as "Role Unknown".
  5. DAYS behind the scenes, articles/photos

    Oh yes!! Carrie and Austin's song (played ad nauseum) was the Flamingos' "I Only Have Eyes For You", and the then-Top 10 hit by Donna Lewis, "I Love You Always Forever" was used as a more current love theme for them (and was played at their 1997 wedding reception). Carrie and Mike's love song was one of the biggest hits of 1997-98, LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live". They also went to some party where Craig Wesley was and the Spice Girls were blaring. I also remember a big montage scene where Marlena was reflecting about John, flashbacks back to the 80s and all. Then the scene jumped to Hope, who was thinking about the good times with Bo. The song used was Whitney Houston's hit from The Bodyguard - "I Have Nothing". Mark Valley and Stephanie Cameron had an elaborate dream sequence as Jack and Jennifer dancing to Toni Braxton's "Un-Break My Heart". Those were indeed the DAYS, my friends!!
  6. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    I don't know, but it sure is much more entertaining than just about anything the Final Four have offered in the past few years!!
  7. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Didn't Bob continue that tradition once their father passed on?
  8. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Agreed!! TIIC don't even try anymore, and that's a shame.
  9. The Doctors

    I'm not sure if this has been posted elsewhere on this thread (and I'm still not awake enough to look), but here is Julia Duffy in a mouthwash commercial from 1977. That's the same year she left TD.
  10. Another World

    I hope she would have, too. She'll always be one of the most beloved actresses in the serial genre.
  11. Santa Barbara Discussion Thread

    It took awhile, but they did. There is a lovely scene from 1986, right after the explosion that killed Amy, where Brick is wandering the ruins of the building. Lionel and Sophia arrive to try to comfort their long-lost son. Here it is, courtesy of our very own Wendy:

    I know, and Brick was a character they could have gotten years of mileage out of.
  13. AMC Tribute Thread

    Did she only win one Emmy for Dixie? I think she won twice for Rosanna on ATWT.
  14. Ryan's Hope Discussion Thread

    How long did ABC keep the "Love in the Afternoon" theme for their promos?
  15. Another World

    I'll see what I can do!
  16. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Yeah, that is a pretty funny line.
  17. The Doctors

    It's Nick to the rescue again today with an emergency surgery! The question is, will the patient's attitude be just as rotten after surgery or was it organic?
  18. Santa Barbara Discussion Thread

    Gina Gallego did have decent chemistry with Richard Eden (Brick), after Kerry Sherman (Amy) left. It seemed that they were being tested as a possible couple, but then the idea was dropped. I wonder why, because SB completely wasted RE's talents until he finally followed KS out the door a year later.

    La Lucci is spoofing her Erica Kane image again, this time in the latest Progressive ad:

    Now this is awesome:
  21. Another World

    Thank you for posting that, jam. I sent the link to Jacquie's daughter, Jennifer. If she says anything about it, I will let you guys know.
  22. Actor out at Y&R (Finally)

    He's been on for 14 years? Why does it seem so much longer than that?
  23. Another World

    I'm glad for him. He deserves it.
  24. Daytime Emmys 2017 Discussions

    That's an interesting idea...and certainly no worse than livestreaming on FB!!!
  25. Santa Barbara Discussion Thread

    Gina Gallego seems like such a sweetheart from all of her interviews, but I couldn't stand how her Santana was written. She was a whiny, spineless mess. It would have been a good move if they had tried to get Ava Lazar back in 1991 when Santana was brought back onto the canvas, rather than casting Wanda De Jesus. Jed Allan did not get along with her AT ALL, and it just seems that WDJ's Santana was too old.
