  1. I swear to God, every two months Alice Barrett is in another humiliating feminine hygiene or incontinence aid.

      No, she played Frankie Brady on Days of our Lives.

      It may be karma for Cass choosing her over Kathleen.

  2. RIP Juanita Moore.

  3. Maybe it's because of the hour I spent on the train during the interregnum phase of the show, but this is probably the most fun Oscars I've seen in years thanks to Ellen roaming the aisles with pizza.

  4. I hadn't seen this Melody Thomas Scott article. She's always a trip. And the clips! http://www.tvguide.com/News/Melody-Thomas-Scott-35-Years-Young-Restless-1078295.aspx

      Thanks so much. Some of those are so rare. I'd never seen them.

  5. I have a little over a month to power through GOT Season 3 and too many other shows coming back and nipping at my heels (Americans, Hannibal). Need to finish Top of the Lake quickly. First world problems.

      It's one of my problems as well; the more I force myself to finish something off, the less I'm actually interested in doing so. :')

      I have started a lot of different things but some I hate to finish, and some are currently on the air, so you go from tons of new episodes to waiting weeks or months or years for the next.

      Looking forward to it.

      I wasn't interested in this until I realized Cranston stars and I saw this trailer. Looks reaaaaally good.

  6. Chris McKenna is such a natural (and a hunk) as this pointless role on Y&R that I keep wishing for Joey Buchanan back on-set at Llanfair. Same old same old.

      Leave my Paul alone lol

      CMckenna is hot, and a great actor don't get why he was never asked back to OLTL

    2. DRW50

      No one at ABC had any time for Joey from about 1995 on.

    3. Vee

      I'm not sure he got cut as part of the ABC crackdown on Gottlieb - they made her add Casper Van Dien and other hunks around the same time - but I think he wasn't growing fast enough for the show. They did try to pair him with Reiko Aylesworth before Fillion.

  7. I thought I was hallucinating, but no - there is a thread for the comic strip Judge Parker in Cancelled Soaps. Look out, Portia Faces Life.

    1. Mr. Vixen

      Mr. Vixen

      I did a double take at that too, lol

    2. DRW50

      DRW50

      I think there is (?) a Portia thread.

    3. vote4llama

      vote4llama

      it's not cancelled or on television but it's still a soap. I don't see why it shouldn't be discussed

  8. Sometimes at night I lie awake and think about what the [[email protected]#$%^&*] happened to New York Undercover.

    1. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      Season three might as well have been the last season.

      Yes, I mean the end. I was about 15 and I did a huge double take when I heard that electric guitar.

  9. This GH casting stunt rumor may be the best worst thing I've ever heard. Not Franco.

      Farah Fath as the new Laura..lol

      I just can't understand how they can be casting someone else. Does it ever end?

  10. The lovely and talented Susan Misner, wasted as Grace Davidson on OLTL, is now a contract cast member with The Americans for Season 2. Good for her.

  11. I'd forgotten all about the episode of Firefly where Kim McCullough played a space hooker. Good times.

  12. So yeah, how is the subway and/or cabs in LA? I'll take terrifying life choices for $500, Alex.

    1. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      In Los Angeles, the metro bus system is pretty good at getting you around town, I can get to the valley from out in the suburbs in about an hour.

    2. JackPeyton

      JackPeyton

      A car is your best bet. Even with subway, taxi, uber etc you are very limited in how far you can travel. The best part of loving in Southern California is trips to San Diego, Palm Springs, Santa Barbra, big bear, etc. even la to OC is pretty hard without a car IMO.

    3. JackPeyton

      JackPeyton

      But to answer your question, if you love/work along the subway your fine. Uber is great for trips across town.

      I've never seen it before! Now I have an extra incentive to finish season 2 so that I can get to the prequel lol

    2. Vee

      Vee

      Yeah, only watch it after the show.

  13. It's always surprising when you find characters and stories overlapping with key eras in soap history when you didn't know they did. I did a double-take when I saw Cain Rogan turn up in an OLTL episode from July 1991- pre-Michael Malone but possibly right after the arrival of Linda Gottlieb. Which came first, chicken or egg?

  14. I always liked what I saw of Jessica Collins on Loving, but her character on Y&R is so oppressively sunny she seems like a Stepford Wife. She can do better than this character, yet given the mess of all the other female leads I would hesitate to let her go.

    1. Vee

      Vee

      Consider the other options, though. Sharon needs about a year of rehab work. Chloe is crazy and annoying. Chelsea is almost as boring as the sane Annie on AMC. Victoria, Lily, Abby and that creepy young blonde aren't worth mentioning. And Summer is a teen.

    2. dragonflies

      dragonflies

      I loved her on Lois and Clark

    3. JackPeyton

      JackPeyton

      Ha so true Vee. I do like all the newbies on YR over the last like two years, including boring Chelsea.

  15. Ray Wise confirms filming of new Twin Peaks promos with David Lynch: http://www.fangoria.com/new/excl-ray-wise-confirms-twin-peaks-lynch-directed-blu-ray-promo/

    1. alexisfan07

      alexisfan07

      Madchen did the special with David and Kyle that was on the Gold Box edition. David seemed to have the closest relationship with Madchen of all the women in the cast. I believe he admitted to having a crush on her and that's why he wrote himself into a scene where he got to kiss her.

    2. Vee

      Vee

      Madchen was very involved with the Gold Box featurette. She's always been tight with Lynch.

      Omg you guys, I think an epilogue of "25 Years Later" is actually happening: http://welcometotwinpeaks.com/news/twin-peaks-25-years-later-ray-wise/

  16. To this day, I wonder why Nia Long vanished from "Fresh Prince" overnight.

    1. Cheap21

      Cheap21

      did the character ever get an exit or explanation for her absence?

    2. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      The character's exit was the wedding being called off in the last episode of season five.

    3. Vee

      Vee

      That wasn't an exit, though. They decided they weren't ready but would stay together as a couple. Then the tag over the credits was "Will's single y'all!" Weird as hell.

  17. Can I NOT get CougarLife ads on the main board page, SON?

    1. Errol

      Errol

      If you get any any ads that automatically play with audio (ie. you didn't hover your mouse over it) or an ad that is offensive, please use inspect elements (if using Chrome or Firefox) and try to get the ad information. This will help identify the offending ad and get Google to remove it.

    2. Errol

      Errol

      As an aside, if you use an adblock program or something like it and ads do not show on the site at all for you...you are helping get the site shut down as advertising pays for services.

    3. YRBB

      YRBB

      Adblock plug-ins allow you to enable or disable ads per website. Some sites def need it, this one doesn't (I've never been annoyed by any of them).

  18. I find myself oddly enjoying trying out B&B again these last few days. It's goofy as [[email protected]#$%^&*] as always but it's also stripped down, primal storytelling with a bunch of iconic, broad types. And it has the last vestiges of the Bell imprimatur with the business stories.

  19. Is there anywhere to watch the full classic Y&R episode from the other day? We got preempted for diBlasio in New York.

  20. You'll never know when I post drunk or sober, Soap Opera Network.

  21. That extremely awkward moment when '90s FOX tries to move New Year's Eve to Vegas with Kim Fields and John Henton from Living Single competing against Dick Clark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cls_iPJliFI

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      We actually watched this lol

  22. Rewatching Season 4 of The Wire reminds me of just how wonderful Chad Coleman was on this show. Good to see him and Larry Gilliard on TWD. Now all we need is Sonja Sohn.

    1. SFK

      SFK

      You're a Wire fan Vee? I had an itty bitty role on that show.

      ITA. Sonja Sohn would rock on TWD. The actress who plays Sasha reminds me of her.

  23. I could have sworn GH Xmas episodes from the late '80s/early '90s were posted around here somewhere. Can't find 'em.
