As much as JFP is loathed by soap opera fans she still brought fresh and out of the box ideas to soaps.
All the things that made Santa Barbara iconic were attributed to her
Guiding Light was becoming stale until she shook things up starting with the blackout episodes
They really do. Although Y&R is right up there. And considering their current shows ...
I will say I like Valentin and Anna together and I never thought I'd be saying that.
I also don't hate Elizabeth and Finn. I don't see any future with them but something about them works for me.
Their stanbase can't handle any conflict. Ron has to coddle them.
To be fair, Hope and other women went through lots of trauma in the 80s and seemed to just carry on like nothing happened to them LOL. Kim was the only one who seemed to carry any trauma.
You'd have to know the history to ignore it LOL
I mean, he basically said "oh [!@#$%^&*]" writing in Shane with Ben and Ciara because, you know, Shane's granddaughter was Paige. So they had to address it. I know it's easy to forget all of that but it shows his agenda regarding Ben. "Who cares?"
Honestly I found all of it stupid so I don't really care they don't address any of it. But of course they SHOULD. lol.
And guess who Ron wanted for Harrison Lord? TOM EPLIN. He was going to do it until he couldn't film.
