Thank you so much @FrenchFan.

 

I wonder what others think from reading these monthly summaries were the best soaps of 1975?

 

I would say the top three were Y&R, GL and AMC - with Love of Life and SFT being very intriguing at points too.

I think SFT suffered from the big changes this year. January and December of the same year look like nearly 2 different shows. There is a lack of consistency. Same with GH I would say.

Oh yes! I always fall behind on these long discussion threads. I don't participate while the conversation is happening, but I go back and read them later (both your wonderful recaps and all of the great comments). I've gone through lots of your archives!

My sentiments exactly!

 

Re TGL .

Seems like the Dobsons brought on Andy Norris and Chad Richards and set them up for story but then dropped the characters.

@FrenchFan Thanks for all the synopsis. It is really awesome to see months also covered by Soap Digest and see the differences. SOD seemed to try to synopsise like a novel and Bryna is more recounting episode details, like a fan would. Both give details the other doesn't, so it is great to read. I have been busy trying to scan the magazines and things I  have so sorry I have not been more active. But since Melbourne is on a further lockdown I will have time to get more done.

 

I will try to get the 1976 Daily TV serials magazines up to coincide as best I can with your sharing synopsis. 

 

In terms of Y&R, I am thinking Bill Espy's last episodes may be the scenes with Snapper at the hospital during Jennifer's mastectomy that have been posted or maybe just as she is leaving the hospital. He is not mentioned at all in October Synopsis, and there was a soap magazine article I saw somewhere that mentions he was on his way out around Sep 75. So it seems his last airdates may have been around last week of Sep or first week of October with DH taking over Dec 8

 

I am also wondering if Bill Bell had mother issues. With the exception of Liz, most, or all of his mother characters are pretty lousy at being mothers. Maybe he just thought it would be boring, not sure
