  1. A part of me wonders if they are going this way, so the viewers will be clamoring for Hope to reunite with Rafe.
  2. From what I understand the first episode will be officially posted on YouTube. Since Rick Hearst actually moved to Atlanta having him on this show is extremely logical.
  3. Basically wiping and/or not being alive yet (as having a TARDIS, a Delorean or other time travel device is unlikely) makes creating such a list nearly impossible for most of us. While I know "The Edge of Night" is extremely important, I've only heard about the show, and less than 10 years of its run are available, and that was in its waning days. So how can I judge the quality of something that I wasn't able to see. If one would make it by network, I think it would be easier to come up with a "better"/more accurate list, but you still may be missing something and upset people reading. Bold and the Beautiful being omitted wasn't a surprise, as I think it is more influential in regions outside of North America. As the World Turns and One Life to Live being omitted was more surprising, as they would both be on my personal lists even though I don't have 50+ years as a viewer. While I think Ryan's Hope was important, the big three of ABC are All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital (that order based on time of day they were aired), and I feel like As the World Turns is part of the big three of CBS - whether you put in Young and the Restless as one of the three or not depends on the era of when the list was made/written.
  4. I will miss not having an off-topic area, so please let this be temporary. I wish there was a way that the board would only load that forum to registered users, as I guess the whole guests lurking makes things slower on the board. Since that section isn't the main focus making it only visible to people logged in, would be okay with me.
  5. I was thinking clip earrings back in the big hair era especially, and taking them off to answer the phone.
  6. Gay marriage hasn't even legal for three years in Australia, so I understand why they are behind.
  7. So you all think it will retire with its 55th anniversary? (Isn't that next year?)
  8. There were a lot more videos than what was posted in this thread. Some of them were hard to watch (as they were so sad.) With Eileen Davidson, a part of me wonders if the regime change is why she is back for who knows how long. (Not complaining)
  9. Variety did a long interview about this. https://variety.com/2019/tv/awards/daytime-emmys-rule-changes-2019-natas-1203196509/#article-comments
  10. If you look at the site, they also sell cardboard cut-outs of some of the characters. That's the craziest as who is included. The only thing I kind of like is the Kelly's mug, though I am not sure on the font. If they had a Retro-hospital GH logo item well for nostalgia's sake, I'd like that.
  11. TenPlay on demand has the April 11, 2019 US episode...(Flo's paternity is announced in this episode - no spoilers on the identity as not a spoiler thread.)
  12. It is crazy how Australia is many days ahead of the US/Canada with airings of this show.
  13. When I think about who won and when I remind myself of how people got nominated in the first place before the mess that is prenominations and with only four soaps (the possibility that you can actually know your peers unlike when it was two coasts and a dozen or so shows). There was a book of performers' names, their show, and character listed (I don't know if there was a picture or not depending on what year it was). So everything was based on name recognition to even get to the blue ribbon panel...and in the early years I doubt most of the actors even taped their own shows, (Beta was new in the 70s). The wins of the lead actor tending to be older makes perfect sense from that POV as people within the industry knew of them even if they had not worked at that particular soap. Also there is the issue of show popularity within the genre, some performers their shows were less popular during the years of their best performances or they were huge prior to the Daytime Emmys (so no way of getting an award). Days was shut out for the most part for the 90s for example and in the early Daytime Emmy years there were complaints about bias based on network and coast. So it is a complete mess.
  14. Was there anyone familiar in those episodes? What were your general impressions?
