Should soaps do away with end-of-episode previews?


Recommended Posts

Do you think soaps should scrap the previews at the end of episodes? I think B&B is the only one that still doesn't have them (they put theirs on the official website instead). I think previews kill the mood after a powerful cliffhanger and waste 20 seconds or so that could be used to expand the episode.

Thoughts?

To be honest, I never missed them when AMC got rid of them. It didn't really make a difference to me.

Usually I'm not even paying attention when they flash by. When everyone was so excited that the GH ones were back I could care less though sometimes I catch certain oens and see that tomorrow is gonna eb some crap I don't wanna tune in for.

ITA to the ones who said show the previously on [insert Soap name] instead. And for certain soaps maybe that would give them reason to stop recapping through dialogue instead.

It really doesn't matter. There are only 2 soaps doing them anyway.

DAYS doesn't do them anymore.

It was nice to know whether or not I needed to bother watching most of the next day's episode but it's not like I couldn't make that decision after the first five minutes of an episode. I agree that "previouslies" are probably more valuable. I like them on primetime shows.

I hate next day previews. They ruin the cliffhanger for me, mostly on GH.

GH's preview sometimes spoils the cliffhanger. Like if you think a secret is going to be revealed or a character may or may not pop up, and 2 seconds after the cliffhanger ending you find out in the next day's preview.

    • It looks like John Hess was headwriter until July, 1969 after having the role since March, 1967.  I believe Barbara Roddell also assumed the role of Jill Stevens in June or July of the same year almost immediately after departing "Another World."
    • Awww...they been holding strong this week so I'm sorry to hear that.   Omg! Sprina is Sprina. And Vanna...lol...I still cannot believe how well that turned out given the year before I was a strong person against that pairing. But they redeemed Val so well that it made sense a year later. 
    • I think it is perfectly usual for any soap fan of any age to have any characters or couples they like as part of their fandom. And, it is certainly acceptable to be interested in Doug & Julie and Challie and any age in between. Me & DOOL I am high on Doug & Julie, Challie, Steve & Kayla, John & Marlena, Cady McClain as Jennifer Rose, Abe & Paulina, Chad, even more. Of course, I think it is particularly usual & definitely acceptable for a lesbian to be into Challie, regardless of age! I would never think of chastising someone for who they were fans of. That's as bad as calling names. Who set you up as judge & jury of who someone can be fans of? I must've missed that memo. Topically speaking I'm a fan of about 90% of Salem & not a fan of about 4 characters.
