Holly and Fletcher on GL.

oh ok, thanks for letting me know.

I wanna also say maybe a bi-racial gay/lesbian couple...the closest i can think of is SImone and her lover Rae on Passions, Simone was black and Rae was hispanic I think?

Here's mine: in years past, soaps have done serial killer stories as a means of reducing budgets and/or resolving tense contract renewal negotiations with actors, among other reasons. Usually, though, the stories are written as "closed mysteries," meaning, the audience is kept in suspense as to the culprit's identity until the climax. (And usually, they're written that way, because the stories begin with no clear idea in mind who is responsible for the killings.)

For once, I'd like to see a HW not only know from the jump who is responsible, but also let the audience in as well. Instead of all the "black glove/hooded mask" nonsense, let us, the viewers, know from the very, very beginning (perhaps, with some random dayplayers as the initial victims to start) who the culprit is, and then follow that individual as everyone in town struggles to make sense of the killings and piece together all the clues leading to his/her identity, thereby creating a deeper sense of dramatic irony.

British soaps tend to do that, although it's usually not a genuine serial killer story, more that they kill someone, and have to kill someone else to cover it up, and the press says it's a serial killer because it's more than one fatality.

No, it has to be a genuine serial killer story. Imagine the kind of impact the "Salem Stalker" story might have made on DAYS had we known all along about Antony (since it wasn't really Tony) brainwashing Marlena.

Someone on a soap who becomes a sex worker, not because they have no options, or because they have been abused, but because they are drawn into this world and they feel like it answers a lot of questions for them and gives them a purpose and fulfillment. How would the people around them deal with this change, how would they deal with seeing the uglier side of life and the knowledge that many of the people around them in this new world have a lot of issues to work out.

I might as well rename this the "Brits Are Handing U.S. Soaps Their Asses" thread. sad.png

If you'd seen the story you wouldn't feel that way. tongue.png

    • Also Kale Browne (Michael, AW/Sam, OLTL), Linda Dano (Felicia, AW/Rae, OLTL) and a shorter stint Kevin McClatchy (Nick, AW/ Brian, OLTL)  Lisa Peluso must have crossed paths with people on OLTL as well when she returned briefly after AW.    Eileen Davidson and Thaao Penghlis on Santa Barbara before Days. Eileen Davidson and Stephen Nichols on SB before Days/Y&R.   
    • Not exactly a relatable problem is it?
    • Brenda Epperson was dare I say better than Eileen Davidson. She was warmer, had more sex appeal, and romatic chemistry with her male love interests than Eileen. Eileen was better as Kristin on DAYS for me.  Shari Shattuck however, wasn't all that. She wasnt terrible, just not right for Ashley.
    • William Grey Espy/Janice Lynde - Snapper/Leslie Y&R  Mitch/Tracy AW John Wesley Shipp/Lisa Brown - Kelly/Nola GL - Doug/Iva ATWT
    • Okay, I'll play. Y&R: I'd replace Jason Thompson's Billy with Randy Wayne (Matthew, the Bay). He's only a couple years younger than Miller and in my opinion fits the "type" of Billy Abbott. With a new Billy, I'd keep Billy and Lily separated.    B&B: Robin Christopher as Felicia Forrester? I'd like to see her go up against Deacon and Bill. She could come into Forrester and want to take the company back as a "true" Forrester instead of Ridge and his kids (who are Marones.)  Tamara Braun I'd take as B&B's Kristen Forrester. If Zende is going to be on, Kristen should be around. (I also like the idea of Krista Tesreau, tho she's a couple years older than RC. Krista and Sean Kanan  as Deacon could be interesting.) This has been mentioned before, but I'd be okay with Robert Kelker Kelly taking over as Ridge. TK has always bored me. I don't think he "fits" as Ridge either. He's always so "greasy" looking to me. Sorry. Ridge is supposed to be in the fashion industry and Forrester an icon and yet he always looks so...unkept.
