  1. DeBlasio has no record to run on. The subway is falling apart. He promised to end homelessness and instead it doubled. Public housing is falling apart and infested with rats. He has a limo take him to is gym in Brooklyn. He spends way too much time outside NYC when we need him here. He talks out both sides of his mouth on a regular basis. Luckily he has 0 chance of getting the nomination. I don’t know why he would even try when 80% of NYCers polled do not want him to run. If you can’t even win your home state what is the point of running?
  2. I hated Langan's DAYS and stopped watching then after I'd been pretty addicted under JER and SSM -- looking back both of those HWs had flaws as well, but they did a good job of drawing you back in with great cliffhangers. But would I trade today's DAYS with Langan's? In a heartbeat. At least it was so bad it's good.
  3. Hogan always randomly brought back the most obscure characters that nobody was asking for, even as the fans begged for even a cameo of Scott DeFreitas/Andy.
  4. I don't think Seyfried was "fired" from ATWT. It was always intended to be a short term visit. Then they decided to bring the character on full time and brought on Peyton List. Holy wow, I don't remember the last Lucy at all. The last five years are such a freaking blur. People on this board keep saying things about the last five years of ATWT that I know I saw, and I don't remember it at all. It shows *how bad* those last five years were, and how much they threw at the wall, and how ridiculous the pace was, that I don't remember any of it. I at least remember the bad storylines/recasts from before that.
  5. Y&R in the 90s was one of the best at doing it. Black viewership is what made them the #1 soap, and they honed in on that once upon a time. ETA: Oh, soaps now? IDK, don't really watch. I know Y&R does not have the black families anywhere near as frontburner as they were in the 90s... they were consistently frontburner.
  6. But really, you never know what you have. Even Anne Heche was super green when she first started. Looking at her in 1991, you have a 21 year old tour de force who is really carrying this show. There was no indication that she would turn into that when she first started. Not that she was bad when she started, but by the time she left she was really something special.
  7. The look on JFP's face is totally priceless, and I can't be totally anti-JFP here. We don't know what the heck happened in what must have been a truly toxic environment, and JFP is the heroine in her own narrative. If only we could have an "I, Tonya" style movie of the SB BTS. The Santa Barbara cast and crew celebrating really is great to watch though. They would have been the underdogs going against more established shows.... they had to be two times better to even be considered, and they know it. They were truly shocked and honored to have won.
  8. Prediction of month and year that the last traditional U.S. soap airs.... and which soap? TBH, if we were predicting ten years ago I would have thought it would have already happened by now. The zombie soaps are surprisingly resilient. For me: Y&R and B&B end on the same day in May 2022.
  9. My goodness. Seeing that, yes. As much as he spoke for taking things slowly and not changing anything for six months, he clearly wanted nothing to do with that vision of ATWT. I can see why, too, but I don't completely hate that 1983 episode either. Those Barbara/bull scenes are great. And Anthony Herrera is so sexy it should be illegal.
  10. This happened? The last ten years of ATWT are such a blur, honestly. They changed their minds literally every 2 minutes. A thousand monkeys on a thousand PCs could have come up with a better show.
  11. Barbara needed AN ending, and unfortunately Hal (and Benjamin Hendricksen) was dead, so the best ending wasn't available. I didn't care for this one, but I can see why they did it and it's far from the worst thing ATWT did in that era.
  12. Tammy and Jonathan was fine... First of all, first full-cousin marriage is legal in several states, and they were only half-cousins who weren't raised together.
  13. Good for him. He was one of the bright spots of the last few years. I liked Zac Roerig but I accepted him as the recast.
  14. It makes sense when you think of who Nielsen ratings are for: advertisers. Gay couples tend to be higher income on average, so advertisers of high end products would want to know what they’re watching.
  15. Haven’t watched this is years but you just brought back the memory. WTF even was that? Keep in mind this was the early 90s when crime and the crack epidemic were considered huge national problems. It would have been considered timely.
  16. I’m not surprised to see Survivor on there. It is apparent from the online community that a massive chunk of the fan base is gay. I don’t know why this is, but it’s interesting to see the data confirm what I’ve observed for many years. I’m thinking it’s big in Canada too because half the online fan base seems to be Canadian.
  17. American Express don't play. They're known to be hard up. I guess that is how they fund that amazing 6% cash back at the grocery store. I'm sure KSJ had hundreds of thousands if not millions in life insurance thru SAG-AFTRA.
  18. This was on all of the P&G soaps. What im referring to is that Conboy gave himself a big credit at the end of the episode after the fade to black like on a primetime show.
  19. Not to mention the stupid vanity credit he put in — executive producer John Conboy in big bold letters. As if we could forget.
  20. With the P&G soaps I’m thinking we would be praying for a mercy killing at this point. Don’t know about AMC and OLTL.
  21. He was also showrunner during knots landing season 13, which fans universally consider to be a disaster (the production company did as well, since they stopped production mid-way through the season to hire different writers to wrap the season up.)
  22. It has to be Chris Goutman. He did have a vision when he started at ATWT. The episode where Katie was forced to tape a video confessing to her crimes by her stalker is a late soap classic. He directed that and the production values are extremely impressive. That episode is Marland ATWT quality, even though Lethal Leah Laiman wrote it. Perfect soap. The fact that the tape of Katie didn't come out until months and months later is also Marland quality. But he both gave up and became contemptuous of the fan base. He shouldn't have been in that role as long as he was. OMG and how good was David Andrew Macdonald once that ridiculous storyline ended and he was just David? AW's last five years are such a shame.
  23. I think it's interesting. IMO, Bernie is the most electable Democrat and would give Trump a serious run for his money. But Democrats don't like him and oppose him... we've seen that in this thread. And as a Trump supporter, I wouldn't be completely pissed if Bernie won like I would be if Harris, O'Rourke, or some of the others won. It is interesting.
