Here's another example of Soap Talk at the beginning of this episode. Is this the first full-blown "previously on..." on a soap?

I remember the day this aired, the recap of Noah shouting and scaring off Kendall. It was indeed the first "previously on" I had ever seen and it was almost surreal.

SoapLine was produced by Linda Gottlieb, fresh off of OLTL. She still had some deal with ABC. Calling SoapLine a "show" is a little generous, it wasn't much more than these interstitials that you see.

I was reading a blog it said that ABC was considering making it a half hour talk show. Imagine if this was on before The View

Oof, I don't know why I never made the timeline connection, but it disappoints me to hear LG's feelings re: Blair since she cast Mia herself.

I would like to see the one about the screen tests for Tina.

SoapLine worked best as just what it was. Kind of like Reba's little intros during A Daytime to Remember. Actually, it would have been nice if SoapLine had continued up until present even if only for GH. I think it would have been nice to see quick bts snippets with the actors and crews of each show. There were endless aspects of the shows to cover.

I vaguely remember this. I really don't know why I have no recollection of the Simpson trial era. It wasn't like I was too young to remember or anything. Nevertheless, people keep blaming OJ for the soaps decline and I can't, for the life of me, remember this affecting me or my soap viewing. Odd.

Same for me. I already had washed my hands of most of my CBS soaps by the time the OJ stuff started and I only sporadically tuned in. I must have missed most of the preemptions. I started getting into ABC in summer 1995 and again there were not so many preemptions that I noticed.

R., you and I are the same age and we were in the 10th grade when this was all going down. (Lord, I remember us gathered around the TV during 5th period when the verdict dropped and the explosion of mixed reactions.) At any rate, seeing as how school was in session, catching the soaps was hit or miss for me as usual, some days we taped, some days we didn't, sometimes I missed weeks as a time... so I think that's why I look back and see O.J. as a blip on my overall soap viewing. My school year soap viewing was always sporadic. Granted, I wasn't at home all day every day like an elderly person or a house wife/husband, but frankly, if you were such a person whose daytime life was in the home (especially if you had no cable), you were probably going to start watching the stories when they came back on anyway. The only people I imagine really throwing in the towel were Type A recorders who came home night after night to a tape full of O.J. and finally just said, "[[email protected]#$%^&*] it!"

    • lol. Yeah, I definitely could have thought of a better title. Heck, GH people should have thought of a better title.  lol. Yeah, I definitely could have thought of a better title. Heck, GH people should have thought of a better title. 
    • Yes so big in fact that if GH was cancelled, I would shocked if Sonny did not ride off into the sunset with Brenda...with needed changes of course. Please register in order to view this content  She is still too heavily connected to the canvas...or can be...to not even NOT be relevant. As Brenda should be.   But I really came by LOL...granted I'm farther back than the rest of you, but I haven't gotten to the repetitive nature of the conversations between 'Sonny' and Carly yet. And like I've mentioned, I like this feels very much (as much as a soap can be) organic conflict.    But one thing I have liked about it (so far) has been Carly HAS NOT reacted to it the way she usually does. Let's face it...once Carly knew Sonny was alive and Nina knew, 9 times out of 10, she would have EXPLODED and @Cheap21 would have done one awesome 'Oh Lord Carly's on the Loose' gif/pic. Then she would have raised h#ll from the moment she found out to now, complete with a revenge plot.   I liked that they have truly just showed...yes, showed...Carly wrestle with her feelings over Nixon Falls. Olivia. Gladys. Willow(?). She has made a LOOOOOOOT of effect to not just explode at the drop of a hat. And even when she has started to, Carly has caught herself. And I found LW was playing that to the hilt. It's been over weeks, too. If that is not maturity, I don't know what is.   That said...I still keep that Carly will be her own worst enemy in the end. But at least it has a build to it.      THIS.   And they definitely prove that last part when VM came back for GH's 50th. First scene and it was there. At least for me. lol. 
    • I was never a big Brenda or Sonny/Brenda fan in her heyday, but I liked her with Jax near the end of the '90s and then came to appreciate her in hindsight much later. Caroline and I have had a lot of discussions centering around the S/B pairing in latter years and their doomed marriage in the early 2010s, and how their final (very good, brutally honest) scenes in 2011 indicated why it is futile to pair Sonny with anyone else - because if the character cannot change for her, he won't for anyone. I'm assuming Khan hasn't seen them so it's time to post them again! It was the first time in years Maurice had impressed me, and the last. Also some of the last, best work of the very longtime writing team, most of which went out with Guza and JFP. And I do agree - they could bring her back tomorrow and it would still work with them, and would be necessary to evolve the character and move him into an elder statesman role (with VM taking the share of story) and transition more and more away from the mob. We've discussed that one around here before too, though. It's also why Frank doesn't bring her back; he knows she is too big for the show he chooses to make and what he chooses to focus on.
    • Yeah, I mean, at least Promised Land makes Queens look good, but the producers should start talks about moving this to Hulu asap because it's not going to survive on ABC.
