Best Soap Opera Theme

I still can't believe Another World kept this sh!t until 1996. Even by 1989 this was dated as hell.

JFP's opening might not be to everyone's liking, but she had the right idea. There is no reason why this paintbox opening should have lasted until 1996. Neither NBC or PGP paid any attention to this show until it was canceled.

Robin Christopher looks so good in that

I loved this theme song. It was so edgy and good

Oh and here was the special Shockwave Opening for SuBe

Totally agree with you. Until its SOAPnet airings I had no idea that theme even existed.

I really liked this one:

and I believe Port Charles was the first to add character names

THANK YOU! I thought it included names in the credits, but I just didn't feel like researching, lol.

I hated when ABC had the mandate to add character names to their classic (for the time at least) openings.

This just didn't mesh all that well for GH and OLTL especially.

but it was damn perfect on AMC! I thought it was genius to have the charaters sighn their names in the photo album especially since each had different handwriting. Seriously the living photo album has got to be the BEST concept for a show opening ever next to B&B's current fashion show opening

It helps that this opening was created specifically with that in mind instead of it being taked onto their existing one like GH and OLTL

Speaking of B&B' this idea was so original and genius. Perfection

I really liked ATWT's mid-2000's opening theme. It was so fresh and so clean.

OMG! Hell no! Now that was my favorite theme!!!! I loved this show back in the day. It was my favorite soap at the time and possibly the only one I watched more than AMC, GH or OLTL. Ava was my girl!!! I loved when they went to the Disney MGM Studios back then.

    • True!!!!! Such a shame All My Children wasn't able to hold onto the #1 spot for a few years. I guess second best isn't too bad; but they were thee best Imo. Real trendsetter of the genre.
    • Still early in my viewing, but Edge is becoming one of my favorite shows. I am obsessed!!!
    • OMG @Taoboi. Get out. I was just coming on here to post that very same Third King thread. It was a great analysis and really clarified so many things about Garcelle and Kyle's respective approaches. And the fact that they both represented Bravo at Upfronts a few weeks ago (alongside Karen, Gizelle, Teresa, Alexia and Kenya) says SO much. It's not just who is 'queen' of their show -- it is who is most valued and representative of the RH brand. This group is. And BH is top of the heap. Also, Terri's podcast is most interesting in that you can tell the Coven dislike Garcelle. But they also fear her. So they pull their punches and won't talk about the issue they have with her. As for this latest episode... The Kyle Backlash begins here, it seems. 13 long years it has been building. I have a theory: Kyle hits her low blows early in a season, because by mid-point, another crazier or more toxic storyline has pulled focus. And consequently, when reunion comes around, Kyle's petty BS is relegated to part 1 and she can duck accountability. When she brought in Brandi late in S10 to destroy Denise, I thought FOR SURE she would get savaged at reunion. But Covid and a virtual reunion meant that Teddi carried the can for the Brandi reveal. This year? We still have the Kathy stuff left to play out, and I'm not sure Kyle will be covering herself with glory there either. She's made some noises about leaving after this season -- do you believe it? One thing I will give Kyle -- her dogs are the cutest. Bambi eating Rinna's steak! And going for seconds on the kitchen counter! I was dying! Kyle's Doppelganger was at the store opening, and the producers barely gave her a line! Erika keeps trying to start something with Sutton, and Sutton keeps ignoring her. It's actually kind of amazing. I'm still not sure whether this is because Sutton has gotten good at handling the Coven, or if she's gotten lucky. What is clear is that she, Garcelle and possibly Crystal have compared notes about presenting a united front on how to deal with the Coven. Crystal really surprised me with her outburst because it felt like it came from an authentic place, and wasn't just an excuse to needle Kyle. Especially when Crystal talked about how she did not expect the evening to unfold as it had. For a second, I thought she was going to say she was leaving the group permanently. That car ride between Crystal and Diana. Yikes. Talk about awkward silences. These two have zero in common. There is something so icy cold about Diana. I know Yolanda was ruthless, too, but there were times when Yolanda displayed some heart and emotional life which I warmed to. This lady is giving me nothing. And neither is her glam squad. An entire team stick her hair in a messy bun and dressed her in a black tent? Damn. That is true wealth when you dress like you just don't care! Erika leaching onto Diana is creepy. It was like watching a gold-digger's mating call. Is Mikey and Erika's glam squad working pro bono? Rinna walking into Kyle's store and saying she loved.... the ceiling... made me LOL. Looks like Crystal next week is going to throw Sutton under a bus. Yikes.
