Best Week Of Soap I've Ever Seen


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Episodes 101-105 of UK soap Hollyoaks were pretty much the best week of soaps I've ever seen (and I've been a soap boy for over fifteen years), an evil bitch returns, a party goes horribly wrong, and a gay declaration of love...THIS is why I watch serialized drama.

Head to BBCAmerica.com and check it out...episode 101 will be there for about 24 more hours (it'll leave early Monday) and new episodes are put up daily.

This is one incredible show and it's free waiting for you guys.

Check it out! :)

I bet ya'll thought I was talking about Y&R when you saw the topic! LOL!

I've tried watching it before, but the episode takes forever to load and, after it does, it freezes every few seconds (while the sound goes on). Is there anything that I can do?

I'm really interested in watching this, as I love British shows.

Have you tried recently? About a week ago BBCAmerica debuted a new clearer faster mediaplayer. It's miles better than the old one!

    • I was probably the only one in the target age range at the time who was impressed by that lol.  ATWT seemed to me like GL's older (I know, I know, GL was first by a long shot, but you wouldn't have known it going by the cast members who were on the show by then), stable, more popular sibling, even if that popularity was waning.  As other soaps disappointed me, that sense of consistency started to appeal to me.  Even though I never found ATWT compelling long-term whenever I tuned in in those years, and of course it had as much turmoil behind the scenes as the other network/sponsor-owned shows by then.
    • Lol didn’t they kinda do that when GT’s Phyllis dyed her hair blonde?
    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
