Have you all seen this video on how a typical soap episode is made? It's from about a year before ATWT was canceled.

I gained some insights into how challenging this can be. ATWT was moved from its more expensive Manhattan studios to Brooklyn about 10 years before it was cancelled. I was struck by how small each room looks and how close the camera is to the actors. I feel like soaps filmed in California have much bigger studios and don't feel as cramped.

Not much of them out there, but here's a clip of Kelly and Connor:

 

Wow, this is.. not good. I wonder if they were just going through the motions at this point since they had already known they had just been cancelled and wondering what's next for them

I need to discuss my biggest problem from the past few weeks, and it's a big one: ever since Santana and Cruz on the beach, James Taylor's Fire and Rain has been stuck in my head. And I want it OUT!!!!

You can look for playlists of biggest songs of each year on Spotify or Apple music whichever one you subscribing to. I just recently went through all of the number ones from 1989 to 1991. I am going to continue

Winston Duke (Black Panther) was on Stephen Colbert last night and mentioned loving American soaps while growing up in Trinidad. He gave a shout out to SB and mentioned that Cruz was especially popular in Trinidad. Whenever anyone wore skintight jeans there, they were "Cruzing" themselves!!

I actually made a playlist of Eden and Cruz's themes. "The Change in Me is You", "Shelter From the Storm", "The Night Goes On", "A Little Bit of Heaven", etc. SB did use a lot of songs for them!!

I don't know what's worse: Gina's outfit or the couch right at the bottom at the staircase.

 

I know Santa Barbara was on its last legs by this point (maybe cancellation was already a done deal), but this is still 100 times more luxurious set-wise than most soaps today! 

Also, I think Eileen Davidson and Charles Grant had a lot of chemistry. This is definitely swoony, romantic early-90s soapiness. I kind of love it!

If SB had continued, they may well have been the next supercouple of the show. Along with CC and Sophia/Mason and Julia, they could have worked and provided some stability for the show.

Stability would have been nice. I can't see the video for some reason. But Stability would have been good.
