Create a new soap

Recommended Posts

  • Members

If anyone created a new soap that was truly a standard, classic soap opera as we've all known since the early 50's, I would suggest the original Guiding Light/Search for Tomorrow length of 10 minutes (15 minute soaps minus 5 minutes of commercial). Online. If some random cable network wanted to air it, they could air it as a one-hour show once a week.

65 episodes every six months, told spatial anthology style, beginning middle and end as but also open ended. Characters could used all over creating a Tarantino style universe.

I would also make it a little bit meta, but not in a comedic or insulting way. I would just make my characters grow in intelligence and be aware of the things surrounding them.

    • Well, it was Paul Michael Valley's choice but he made it because he was furious with JFP for firing Chris Tucci on JFP's first day at AW. Tucci & PMV were an item then. I wholeheartedly agree about Paulina. Jake all the way! I'd go over that cliff with them again tomorrow! Vicky & Shane, okay. Vicky & Grant very okay. And, I've mentioned him but what about Evan? I still think Vicky & Amanda could have squared off over Evan. And, Jamie is never a bad idea. The thing about Tommy is that he was a good friend, a good scene partner & full of chemistry with all those dames! But, Tommy was more successful with the ladies than Jake was!

    • I really enjoyed Ms. Wu on today's show. She was fabulous with the way that she handled Morgan's Fairchild's character when she was threatening to sue Deception. Ms. Wu is such a strong no-nonsense lady who will handle things quickly before they get out of control. And I like that lol. Sasha's meltdown was definitely a very rough moment for her, but I liked the way Ms. Wu came in to clean things up once Lucy/Morgan's child started arguing with each other. I also liked Lucy/Morgan's character Haven squaring off with each other too. The scenes with those ladies were the best scenes of today for me.  I also liked the scenes where Nina got emotional about seeing Sasha's meltdown on live tv. (And Sonny comforting her afterwards). 
    • I completely agree that it made no sense for Vicky to get back together with Jake after he raped Marley. I try to justify it by telling myself neither Jake nor Vicky were saints by any means when they came to Bay City. They moved past their misdeeds and accepted each other for who they were. I did like Tom and Jensen together.  I never thought Paulina should have been paired with Joe. I hated that pairing. Paulina was so much more fun when she was with Jake.  Ryan should never have left (but it was PMV's choice). That said, Vicky could have been paired with someone new (Shane?), gone back to Grant against everyone's wishes as Vicky never concerned herself with the opinion of others, or even recast Jamie specifically for a pairing with Jensen. Jamie was a character that should have been around during the end of the show's run. 
    • Have a number of people played gay Sonny? I see him with Will & think he has looked different ways at different times.
    • KKL was better at emotion always... and crying a LOT. But she lacked the intelligence and class that Hunter gave Taylor.. She on the other hand... lacked emotion at some points.. and for the first couple of months she couldnt cry like she started later... I will say they are equally good, but no GREAT GREAT like Susan... But in the end I will kinda prefer KKL... because she made me feel more emotion. Taylor a lot of the times is just beautiful.
