  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's so great to watch these old Facts of Life episodes where soap Divas like Claire Malis and Marj Dusay play the mothers of main characters. Since the days of Friends (at least), they surely would have stunt cast, never giving these talented ladies a chance to shine.

      I agree. And the stunt casting dates so so badly. 

  2. Sure was nice to see Linda Dano and Victoria Wyndham back-to-back in my IG feed this evening.

      How is Linda?

      Linda is looking well. Doing that Allison Sweeney show seems to have done her good - she even did the TCA press tour in Pasadena for it.

  3. Watching Capitol from the beginning, it's really heartbreaking once I've reached the Marla Adams episodes. It's so refreshing once Carolyn Jones comes back, and yet, still heartbreaking knowing how things will ultimately turn out.

  4. Lately, I've been getting ads that appear on top of posts, literally blocking out people's words. Even if I click on the ad (which I hate to do) or attempt to close it, I can't get rid of it to see what the poster was saying. This is egregious. Anyone else having this problem?

      I have seen some ads being intrusive while trying to post. It's annoying.

      I've dealt with it too for several weeks

  5.  Nathan Fillion, the 50 year-old "Rookie". I guess it's never too late, there's hope for us all.

  6. Well, I guess this circa 1979 Ralph Carter/Haywood Nelson slashfic ain't gonna write itself...

      Looked up what slashfic means. That's really naughty.

      Looks around...tries to remember if Khan ever wished him a birthday....:unsure:

       

      Happy Birthday Khan!:D

  8. Somebody at the bar just played 9-5 on the jukebox and I was suddenly struck by the resemblance to the theme to Madam's Place. Govern yourselves accordingly...

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      I noticed that too. Which came first?

    2. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      9 to 5 came out in 1980 before Madame's Place. Never had heard of the show but I listened to the theme and agree that it sounds like 9 to 5. It copies it, but does just enough to avoid copyright infringement.

  9. I have never, EVER, watched a full episode of SFT, and yet I cry each and every time YouTube draws me to that final scene. The power of the soap at its best, I suppose.

  10. It's 1am and I'm watching a classic soap on the teevee, not YouTube.  God is good.  More please.

    1. ~bl~

      ~bl~

      So you have RetroTV and were watching The Doctors?

      Yes, didn't have it in the D.C. area until recently.

  11. Shameless plug, but if you're in the DMV, you must see Tarell Alvin McCraney's Wig Out! at Studio Theatre.  Message me if you need a comp!

  12. One of my costumes in my next play is a prison jumpsuit and y'all already know that collar is gonna be popped a la Urrrrica Kane...

  13. Maaaaaan, if I was the person who discovered the little "30" in the B&B logo, y'all couldn't tell me S#!T!!  Walking around the office like: giphy.gif

      BRUH. Waking up in the MIDDLE of the night to send that company-wide email, not giving a damn what it looks like to be sending it at 3am because you KNOW that raise is comting.

      Hahahaha, and Cheap, you know me and my delinquent viewership lol

  14. Susan Lucci's auction for CP... would someone please buy me her sheared beaver trimmed with mink tails coat and let me get All My Llife to Llive??  I gag.

  15. A little bummed that I didn't know IMDb's boards were closing down sooner, would've liked to connect with a few people.  Is there any sort of general consensus about where folks have decided to post?

  16. Does anyone have information on the P&G visitor center in Cincinnati where you can peruse soap bibles and such?  Someone posted about their visit years ago, he mentioned reading the Somerset bible.  I'm interested in going but my Google searches have been in vain.

  17. Susan Lucci will be featured on a program called People's List airing now on the east coast (ABC).

      And in honor of this event, I've changed my avatar.  It's been 6 years since I've updated it.

      I'm glad you caught it!

  18. An oral history of The Wire is in the works for those of you who are fans.  I've got to get my hands on the one for OLTL, long overdue.

  19. Marj Dusay and Claire Malis as Blair and Jo's mothers, respectively.  Thank God for the days when networks didn't feel the need to put A-listers in such roles.

  20. I must be drunk because this had the nerve to make me cry: https://youtu.be/kQOwE2JDyvs

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      Yeah, you must be drunk.

    2. ReddFoxx

      Linda and Robin are on Twitter. I'm guessing they are fine as they put out tweets occasionally. I miss them all on TV though.

      Glad Linda is back again. I know some were worried.

      I know LD left GL soon after she joined the show, because her depression over her husband's death became too overwhelming.  Which was a shame, I thought, since GL could have used someone like her at that point.

  22. Six rounds of Guiding Light's "Hold on to Love"=5 minutes is perhaps my greatest, oft-used life hack over the past twenty years.  Great tool in the kitchen. #steaks

  23. Home today and caught some of The View and The Talk.  Both shows trashed Ivana Trump for her recent comments.  Neither show mentioned the fact that Kelly Osbourne said the exact same thing.  Go figure.

  24. That life affirming moment when you discover that your new love interest's birthday is January 5th. #mustbetheone

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      Yaaaassss! January 5th will always be a special day.

  25. My grandparents celebrated their 53rd anniversary today.  My grandfather taught private music lessons in their home, and his daily routine was lunch and All My Children.  That's how my dad was familiar with characters like Phoebe and Chuck long before he met my ABC Daytime obsessed mom.  When my grandmother retired in '79, she joined my grandad with the daily AMC viewing until cancellation.  I think it's pretty amazing that combined, minus vacations, appointments, the odd errand that ran longer than expected, they clocked thousands of hours of AMC viewing, seeing at least 90% of the show's run.
