Didn't New World Productions (which owned SB) fold not too long after SB went off the air? Or was it bought out?
All things considered, it was a shame that MW and AM couldn't at least have come back for the finale. I don't even think they were approached about it.
Honestly, I would say the last time we ATWT got something truly worthwhile and great was the SoapClassics DVDs and streaming. So, course PGP/P&G/TeleNext or (whatever they choose to refer to themselves as today) had to put the kibosh on it. So great to see folks still supporting that toxicity with apparent zeal.
