Recommended Posts

  • Members

I know that in the past SOD does different versions, but I thought they stopped and plus I heard no mention of GL *FINALLY* getting some type of cover...The left is the one I got in the mail and the right is the store bought! Just started getting it this week. Thoughts???

There was another two cover one with the issue dated February 6th, 2007: the one on the website was GH and the one I got (I'm a subsriber) was OLTL.

This is the breakdown so far this year:

AMC: 1 cover. 1 inset = 2

ATWT: 1 cover (shared) = 1

B&B: insets = 1

DAYS: 4 covers (one shared); insets: 1 = 5

GH: 5 covers . 1 inset = 4

GL: 1

OLTL: 1 cover inset = 1 = 2

PSNS: 1 inset = 1

Y&R: 3 covers (one shared) = 3 insets = 1

Basically it is GH, DAYS, Y&R, random soap, then the routine stars over.

You can get the rest of the list at my msn group. http://groups.msn.com/UltimateSoapFan

They've been doing this for a year now, on occasion, but for subscribers issues only. A year ago, they sent a survey to some of their subscribers through email and it had a lot of questions about the cover, so I think this is in response to that.

I hate when they doing that. As a subscriber and GH fan i want the GH covers, but instead of GH you get a cover of a not so popular soap. But in the supermarkets you get the mags with the more popular soaps like GH, Days and Y&R. this is not fair.

Boo hoo. Your soap gets more covers than GL to begin with. GL not getting any supermarket covers is was isn't fair.

Are you serious? Did I read this right or are you honestly complaining about GH, of all shows, not getting a cover here or there?

The thing is I'm from Europe, so I don't have the chance to go to the supermarket and just buy it, i have to subscribe it. I always looking forward to get the issues with GH on the cover but when they arrive they have other covers (not always but very often).That is what bothers me. Especially with this Scotty cover, i could care less if it was Jason or Sonny/Carly. If they would put GL on the cover from begin with, it would be fine by me. I also love GL, don't get me wrong.

You know what I miss? The old cover photo shoots that they used to do. The last one I saw with GL was the whole Richard dies cover (which was an awesome cover). Now it's just a picture of an actor (or two) with a generic picture. Sigh.

World...Jessica and Marshall were on a SOD cover back in 2003 with the "Was it Rape?" storyline. It was a great cover, full and a dark mysterious green. I may have to dig that up!

YAY!!!!

I'm still pissed the show got shafted for their FIFTIETH anniversary. <_<:angry::(:rolleyes:

    • While I agree that the writing in 1980 did not match the prior regime, but I would argue that the conception of new citizens of Bay City was intriguing.  Having a character based on the story of Patty Hearst was unique.  The idea of a character hiding from her past is a soap staple, but a nurse who is actually an heiress that had experienced a kidnapping attempt is unique.  Of course, it is ridiculous that after trying to change her name, the entire family would follow her to town, but I particularly liked Rick and his romance with Marianne. I also enjoyed the Cecile/Pat feud at Brava. It was one of the only times that Cecile was written as smart and conniving. And, I think it was good writing to use their feud as the introduction of the Harry Must Die book which became the clue in Janice's plot to poison Mac.  Given that Iris was being spun off to Texas, I think Miranda was good substitute.  She was well placed to be a rival for Mac's affection as well as a plaything for the nefarious Philip Lyons.  Also, Jason's relationship with Tracy was interesting and it is the only role that I enjoyed as played by smarmy-guy-specialist Warren Burton It is one of those times in soap history when it is hard to pinpoint the cause of the issue because with the change in tone from Lemay, the loss of Willis and Iris, and the increased competition from OLTL it became a big ship to readjust.  It was still an adult oriented soap, which I appreciate, even though there were heightened story elements that were uncharacteristic.  It may be that I am a Tom King apologist (as well as a Lemay fan), but I think there is a lot of blame to spread all around at the time, and it wasn't just King's fault.
    • Tom Langan cast several 1980s Y&R actors on Reilly's Days: Deborah Adair, Eileen Davidson, Nick Benedict, Jaime Lyn Bauer, Lauren Koslow.
    • @dragonflies The chris evans you linked to is the same Twitter user that got EB trending in Summer 2021. I really hope these lack of appearances are due to EB's recovery from knee surgery, and not his role being reduced.
    • Looking at that list, I highly doubt it.  That list is full of the most mainstream programming on streaming.  While I am sure DAYS does well enough, there is no way it reaches the kind of streaming numbers stuff like Wednesday and Yellowstone are getting.
    • Many have noted that Soap Opera Digest seems to be on it's last legs. A review of the publisher's website shows that they only sell 55,000 copies a week, to an audience with an average age of 54.3 and an income of 35K, which obviously does not make them competitive in advertising market.  Especially when one considers that even Ohio Cooperative Living sells 6x's as many copies per week. But, today's news that their parent company A360media sold the National Enquirer and The Star, which they've been trying to sell for years, leaves them with Us, Closer,and Life & Style (each which sells 3x's more copies per week), and SOD.  Which makes me wonder if SOD's finale may happen this year? Also, what's up with the cooperative community in Ohio that is so fascinating? Please register in order to view this content
