There was an Aussie Soap that did a bush fire. I don`t know if it was Neighbours or Home & Away.

Anyway let me know some of your favourites and anything you want to say on Soap Disasters.

GL's first blackout was very well done because it generated so many new stories and created so many dramatic situations: Nick running to the church to find Mindy had skipped off on their wedding; Blake & Ross get together; Jenna and little Michelle trapped in the elevator; Roger & Maureen; Ed & Lillian; Eleni trapped in the freezer.

Both have done Bush fires a few times (after all Bush fires are an almost annual event in parts of Australia), Home and Away's most significant bush fire was in 1995, while Neighbours' most significant was in 2008.

    • I'm kind of sorry that it happened now for Trump. I hoped it would drag on well into the primaries so that he'd tear all of them apart.  Now, there's too much recovery time for them.  And I still hold to what I've always said - if we ever have a female as President, it will be Republican.   A huge % of women do not really like strong women.  They like stupid subservient ones.  Like Palin.  Like Haley.
    • agreed that the writing for craig was atrocious in the final years. funny thing, though,  about hunt block is that i really like him as ben warren on gl, when he did play the emotional layers. so i wonder if something else was going on. maybe what he was playing was closer to the vision chris goutman had for the character. after scott bryce was fired in 2008, he gave an interview to michael logan and described his relationship with goutman as “odd, and disconnected,” then talked about how dark the show had become and suggested that maybe he “didn’t fit into that vision.”   
    • Nothing in our elections will ever be a breeze. The truth is they never have been. It's just that too many people took progress for granted and threw it away because Bernie told them that their student loans were more important than our civil rights and bodily autonomy. This was a damn fine week. Chris Licht fired, Trump indicted, Pat Robertson and James Watt both dead. (I don't know how many people here remember James Watt but he was a monster.) and SCOTUS actually protected voting rights for once. The election is 18 months away. It's counterproductive to worry about it now. People love to point out Biden's age but then turn around and act like Hamhock is some kind of supervillain. Trump is dying right in front of us but Joe Biden tripped on a sandbag. This is a marathon not a sprint. Let people celebrate the good.
