Aside from the appalling quality of the video clips, this is well-produced. Getting our Irna section now...

I agree. Not much new information for any of us, and any chance at seeing any new clips is dead bc I’m pretty sure they honestly did just pull stuff from YouTube. I’d be OK with this being a non-fan’s introduction to the genre.

 

Lorraine Broderick looks amazing.

The comparison of soaps’ longevity to sports teams’ longevity is legit. I’ve never thought about it that way.

 

Only thing is grandma and mom passed it down to their son in my case, but so I smirked when I heard that. Haha.

Maurice Benard: “Even when the show’s not good, they think it’s great!” (loud cackle)

 

You would know, Mo! Your show hasn’t been good in 25 years.

I was hoping someone would mention that lol

 

I’m just so bugged at how they’re ruining nearly every clip. They’re cutting the top and bottom off of the old non-widescreen clips and it looks terrible.

It’s a lot more restrained than I expected. I thought they’d go over the top with the catfights and bedroom scenes, but it’s very in the vein of the Tom Hanks CNN documentaries about pop culture through the decades.
 

And they aren’t shying away from the vile nature of the Luke/Laura rape.

Stephen Schnetzer. *fans self*
 

 

Yes indeed! The nasty things I’d do to that man, even now.

 

I’m actually not too crazy about how they are not distinguishing between daytime and the old primetime soaps.

 

JFP is Liza Minnelli now?

 

Super super glad they’re exposing L&L for the vile grossness that it was.

I'll watch it if/when Hulu puts it up. Cut the cord awhile ago.

 

Thanks for letting us know, Vee. 

 

I'm recording it now via Xfinity. I'll watch at some point, I can't do commercials.
