  1. Oh god that poor boy. It almost hits close to home, as I am someone on the autism spectrum and have experienced similar struggles to him, although nowhere near the severity of what he did. There is still such a stigma within wider society around neurodiversity, even though big strides have been made over the last 10 years or so. We still have a long way to go though...
  2. Thank you very much for that. Yes I can imagine in those circumstances it would have been a significant year in US history.
  3. Simplistic and yet so poignant. Yes, if there is anything that the world needs now, it is certainly hope. Forgive me for not knowing this (as I’m not from the US), but what was the significance of 1952 that Jo was talking about in her monologue at the end? Did something major happen that year?
  4. I’ll match your international here (hello fellow Londoner 👋)... Neighbours - the Robinsons (Paul/Julie/Scott/Lucy). Nowadays it’s just Paul and Lucy, but they still have a very strong and genuine relationship.
  5. Only a short clip, but OMG the cattiness from Dru towards Olivia here. It is such a dirty shame that Y&R wasted Victoria Rowell and Tonya Lee Williams so badly towards the mid-late 2000s. That was another incredibly complicated relationship. Agreed. Also Reva and Roxie in the 80s (and Rusty too). The whole Shayne clan had a dynamic of their own well apart from the Lewises.
  6. I remember how excited I was back when it was announced in 1999 that ED was returning to Y&R, a lot because I wanted to see how she acted against PB as her on-screen brother. And in 20 years they certainly didn’t disappoint. This is just one example.
  7. Yep, every single scene these two shared (Chris Bernau and Bev McKinsey). I can’t believe I left them off my initial list. Hands down the most complicated sibling relationship ever (IMO).
  8. Whenever people talk about soaps, a lot of the mentions are always about the romantic couples. But I’ve always had a fascination with family dynamics, particularly sibling ones, and I get a kick out of watching the simple interactions between them on various shows. Some of my favourite sibling relationships to watch: Jack/Ashley - Y&R Margo/Craig - ATWT Hogan/Cagney/Quinn - SFT Sami/Eric - DOOL Frank/Harley - GL Are there some soap sibling relationships that have made an impact on you guys throughout the years?
  9. Yep according to synopses he did pretend to be the baby’s father initially, I believe this was when Liza and Travis initially found out that Cissy was Roger Lee’s mother. This was because Cissy didn’t want anyone finding out that Lee was his father (she didn’t want to hurt Lee and Sunny).
  10. Jeff Meek is still looking pretty good nowadays. I’m probably in the minority here, but I actually liked the sibling chemistry that he had with Matt Ashford and David Forsyth on SFT. Each of them very different personalities and could hold their own in their individual stories, yet amazing together when it came to family stuff. Yes I know the McClearys pretty much dominated SFT for the last couple of years of its run, but I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if SFT had got a reprieve and stayed on the air.
  11. This was Soho in London a few hours ago. God help us all...
  12. I’ve wanted to ask you actually... what have you thought of Stefan Löfven’s leadership throughout this pandemic? Stockholm is one of my favourite cities in the whole world, and I have considered maybe shifting there in about 6 months, depending on what further unfolds with the pandemic. It’s a shame, because so many people have been affected by this lockdown that they’ve had enough and are looking for any excuse to go out and socialise, even if the death and case rate is still relatively high. And the government led by BoJo and his cronies have been vague in terms of their communication and justification for easing restrictions, to the point where I believe that if the rates spike up again (as has happened already up in Leicester), they are simply going to blame the public for “not following the rules”.
