  1. Ever have this happen to you where a sports fan will really put you down for your avid interest in soaps? I have and we set about to tell him that it was very much like his fandom of football, in this example, and he just could not see what we were talking about!
  2. Well, I admit to being interested since some of the threads here really got some traction this month. So...how was May Sweeps? From where I'm standing it seems like the main stories were... Y&R: Adam's Return GH: The Nurse Ball B&B: Wyatt's triangle, the Baby Switch DAYS: 'Nicole''s return. Discuss!!!
  3. Even though I haven't had a chance to view this yet, I am posting it for anyone who is interested. Enjoy!
  4. Since election day is near I thought this would be a fun topic. Which soaps have had political story lines or had main characters hold office? I know some, but I'm curious about others. Y&R - Jack and Nikki ran for Wisconsin State Senate (which was a poorly written story line, IMO) OLTL - Dorian and Viki were Mayor of Llanview. Dorian was a Senator. DAYS - Abe was the Mayor of Salem Primetime Dynasty: Blake and Alexis ran against each other for Governor of Colorado Falcon Crest: Chase ran for Board of Supervisors and beat Angela's candidate (the direction in the scene were the results come in and Angela is listening is stunning)
  5. Well, it's over with...so...How would you grade May Sweeps? And bonus for me since I'm waaay behind...so Ron Carlivati finally have a bad May Sweeps over at DAYS? As for me... Y&R Judging by what I've seen...B. From the JT fallout to Jack's paternity to Hevon/Shick, there was stuff going on. And I have to admit that I have been binge watching again more than I have since SS was still writing. We know how I felt about the JT/Victoria story so I will not talk about it again. Nor the Jack rewrite...but I do tune in. And what are your thoughts?
  6. Well, since it is pretty much done. How would you grade February Sweeps? A, B, or a non-grade?
  7. Well...welcome to February Sweeps!!!! Or...discuss!!!!
  8. The New York Times actually names names in this article about the celebrities and so-called "influencers" who purchase followers for their social accounts. There is a very disturbing underbelly to the business of how bots are created. Also, there are some names that you are sure to recognize unfortunately. The Follower Factory
  9. A somewhat bittersweet milestone. This day in 1949 marked the beginning of the network television soap opera as Irna Phillips' daytime drama These Are My Children debuted on Chicago's NBC station. We know that Chicago would become a hotbed for the cultivation of some great soap opera creating/writing talent. Thoughts?
  10. Per TV Guide... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Dina collapses after a fight with Graham. He leaves her there, putting a DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door. Sounds like someone finds her, but...
  11. The soap, the telenovela, the continuing dramatic series...whatever you want to call it, has the power to reach people like few non-visual media can. This article describes a series that will air on an Arab TV broadcaster, where producers hope to show the horrific brutality of a terrorist group like ISIS. It looks quite intense but perhaps it will dissuade potentially vulnerable people from romanticization this group. Personally, such a group looks about as appealing as being roasted over fiery hot coals but I've read stories of people who somehow flocked to what looks like a hell-hole to me. This series sounds fascinating but a possibly a tough watch (though I once watched an entire 60 episode series that recounted the horrors of slavery in Colombia, La Esclava Blanca) Arab TV Series Dramatizes Life Under ISIS
  12. Years ago, We Love Soaps may have done a short profile on this show but I remember reading about it somewhere and wondering whether I'd ever be able to see it. I think there may have been a radio play that was actually the first soap opera with a Black cast before this but Bird of an Iron Feather had to be the first on TV. I meant to post this ages ago but somehow never got around to it. Interesting read. 'Bird of an Iron Feather' - Television's First Black Soap Opera That Was Too Hot for Television
  13. Since I mentioned I saw it and would read it...I figured I would do a post with the highlights... WHY ANOTHER WRITER CHANGE? Pretty much, the same thing Corday said in his other interviews...gut feeling, steering the ship, not feeling the stories, etc. RON'S WRITING Corday says he will bring the laughs, tears, and rootable couples. Couples mention: John/Marlena, Patch/Kayla, Hope/Rafe, Chabby. Also noted--Nicole/Brady/Eric/Chloe not sure if it meant together, but more will get done with them. As mentioned elsewhere, there is a murder mystery coming. It starts in June and ends in September. RC has restructured how it will go however. Corday wants to get away from the darkness of the writing. Expect Ron's vision to be clear two months into his run. ABOUT SHERI ANDERSON Corday thinks she has a strong female point of view and should be able to ground RC as well as all of her history with the show. TWEAKS There were some to a point. Then Corday goes into why they shoot the way they have been doing it which a good overview of can be found here: http://www.welovesoaps.net/2017/02/ken-corday-shooting-days-of-our-lives.html. I liked it since a lot of us here have discussed this all the time. I do believe this is the first interview where SOD directly asked him this. And I was surprised he answered. Definitely want to hear everyone's thought now that it's out in the open re:at this point, it's the only way DAYS stays on the air thus production model. OTHERS This interview was done pre-renewal so he talks about how he feels about the Megyn Kelly news. Corday feels the show in in good hands for the fall with RC. And hopes he now has a long term writer for the future like the soap opera writers of old who stayed on their shows for a long time. So...beginning of July to mid-Aug/Sept is Corday's estimate on feeling RC's writing kick in.
  14. Have the new TV Guide in hand and it said that... Quinn is going to make Steffy an offer she can't refuse...CEO of Forrester. get And as a result..Myra's claws come out!!! Not that she will be alone in trying to get the ladies out of the way...Ridge will be working on his plan to be CEO again...when he isn't busy trying to get married to Brooke again who he will be sleeping with very, very soon and proposing to some time after.
  15. So got the new SOD and found it interesting that May 9 is going to be the day where... DAYS: What happened with Aidan is revealed. GH: Jason's memories (with Kim McC appearance) happens. I read the Aidan reason and they explained well. Now the Jason thing...well... Thoughts on either...I'm a bit behind. PS. Lawrence Saint VIctor has an interview inside as well. Haven't read it yet so don't know if he was asked where he was on B&B...yet. will read for sure to see what he is up to.
  16. Well, now that it's over, how would you grade the November Sweeps of all the soaps? Or are you really thinking sleeps? Why? Why not?
  17. So...how did your soap do overall this year? A, B, C, D, Z???
