We're Baaaack......

Hey folks! We're giving this thing a shot! The PVP is continuing to produce our little show, talking all things soap, Dirty Soap, nighttime drama, nighttime (not-so) reality.... And we hope you'll continue to join us as we wait for Prospect Park to get its shit together and maybe start making some soap operas! We're trying so-very-hard not to be dubious, but with stats like these, things aren't exactly looking up.

Add your voice to the conversation as you always do, dear listeners, by clicking here. (Suggestions are always welcome!)

Listening now! Love that The Chew is bombing, though lately it's gone up a bit. :(

Terry in Toronto said...

I'm dropping everything and devoting time to the new episode. Can't wait for my PVP fix!

I can't get behind the STigi story. I loved Stacy. Hated Gigi. The bitch should've stayed dead, and Fath unemployed.

And did anyone else catch that Clinton Kelly went as Mario Batali for Halloween? I only caught the end of that episode, but ugh. That show is HORRIBLE!

Hi Ashley & Jordan! I just wanted to let you guys know how happy I am that you are continuing the podcast. I've been a loyal listener from the beginning and as devastated as I was that All My Children was cancelled, I was also just as devastated that you might stop doing the podcast. Over the past few years I've tuned in and out of AMC, but I always knew you guys were watching so I didn't have to. So I never missed one of your episodes.

Just wanted to let you know you will always have a listener in me!

brtedi said...

Armless, The Chew may be doing better, considering the time of year: the turkeys or cooking turkeys--LOL!

At present due to technical limitations, I can't really download the podcasts. However, I do plan to 'chime in' regularly. As long as all of you are here, I will be, too.

So if I'm understanding the two of you correctly, you do NOT like FFath, right?

Ashley said...

It's not Ashley but me Jordan Hudson. Maybe now we have foudn a way to allow me to blog.

A few thoughts to catch you all up who are not on facebook with me.

Like my beloved Terry in Toronto. feel like it's been forever girl.

If I was not already in love with this show. Last night episode would have closed the deal. Give me a good romance and a couple to root for especially with a soap opera gothic like twist. Seeing how Snow and Charming met and how they are being kept apart loving me some Once upon a time.

THE GOOD WIFE. Thank you for giving your audience the respect of an intelligent, sexy, drama that does not insult our capacity for quality. Plus the addition of Monica Raymund my new Girl who I will go back for. Loving her with Carey. Thank you for also casting actors who can actually act.
If West Side Story is an updated musical version of Romeo and Juliet, then Sons of Anarchy is an updated version of Hamlet, Macbeth and every other shakesperian drama all rolled up in one. It is so easy to write this show off as trash if you have never actually seen it. It isa powerful dramatic piece with award winning performances by a cast of incredible and talented artist. Bravo Kurt and I hope Fx will let you play your story out to Season 7 like you want. Katey and Charlie deserve EMMYS. Do't assume you think you know what this show is about just because you see a biker gang with guns. It is so much deeper

Caught up on RINGER...... I love Ringer for the fact that it is so unique. Revenge is classic soap. Ringer is like watching a well crafted film noir film. The last episode ending was....well a game changer. As he said let me know your next move. This is a game with so many twist. I still say Alexandra does a better jon on Lying Game playing twins but SMG has really only played one so far. Also like Y&R it is becoming a home for ex AMC players, Justin and Billy, who is next.

Ashley said...

Catching up on Rizzoli ans Isles....Colin E. was on playing her bad boy brother....love him.

One thing GH can never do wrong is have Luke and Carly scenes. All the Carlys (except Tranny Carly) were great with Tony. Yet Laura and him seem to be two peas in a pod. I will give them props for giving Lexi a proper send off. Still think it is truly a mistake. Can't wait for tomorrow to see how Carly is going to handle this.

DAMMM YOU ABC.....Why could you not put the CMA AWARDS on THURSDAY. How dare you make me wait two weeks for the next episode of Revenge! Just finished last nights episode..... ASHTON HOLMES HAWWT! The real Emily Thorne Bat shit crazy and I love it! CONNOR PAOLO SEXY! Victoria Grayson the heir to ALEXIS CARRINGTON COLBY. NICK WESCHLER HUBBY MATERIAL! Emily Van Camp knocking my socks off with her performance. If your not watching you are missing out!

OLTL...I know but I already like Vimal's little sister and Jack. I'm a sucker for romance stories. Also love that yet again OLTL has cast an actress of ethnicity who can really act. She had so much energy. I'm so hot for Vimal. Give me him over the Ford brothers any day....well maybe not middle Ford. The Usual suspects were wonderful Florenica (I hope it's true for Tea) Roger, Dani & Des. Now if only Matthew would wake up and come home already the show is ending in Jan. Where is Eddie?

‎5 STARS today's OLTL. BRAVO to ANDREA EVANS AND JOHN LOPRIENO! Today's episode proved they should come to OLTL online too. Especially with no Robin Straser the show needsa powerhouse veteran , a character with rich history to the show. Roger, Erika and Andrea work so well together. I cried.

Glee........... hmmmmmmmmmm. Interesting episode indeed. Who is the Irish boy and is he really Irish...hottie. I was hoping that we would be seeing more Mercedes not less. Thou the three ladies turned it out

Have REVENGE and RINGER Made Primetime Serials Hot Again?
The key to audience support for serials is strong stories from writers who understand the form, a sub-set of the current television writing pool that is in seemingly short supply.


Now your all caught up. Miss you gotta go try and watch some tv before my Dominican neighbors blast the Bachata and merenque music. Ayi Caramba

TheGhostofVerlaGrubbs said...

Just finished the second half of the super-sized podcast!

AS the days go by I'm getting more and more ambivilant about OLTL and Marvin Gardens Ave Productions. I never could understand how they can make it work...I hope they do but it's a very huge order to fill.

A very good friend of mine is a steward and last week Mr. JP and KFC Lip Queen were passengers.... funniest parts about the story: JP was in his pajama pants (which as explained on Diiiirty Soap is all he is confortable with wearing), GeeeeGeeeee was a biiitch to the stewardesses and where was JP? In the back with the male stewards "enjoying" their company....true story my boy don't lie and he would have nothing to gain by this as he's never seen a soap in his life (all the other coworkers could talk about was Rex and Gigi).

Madeline Stowe on REVENGE puts the CAMP back in campy, I tell you what. The first episode I thought she was phoning it in and awful but as the weeks went on I realize how layered she's being. Plus any show that can make Amber Valleta an ACTRESS is ok by me!

Can wait for my trip to NY! Living to go check out Barracuda!

Ashley said...

testing

Ashley said...

Okay it's me Jordan...Verla you cracked me up with your post. Barracuda...sigh That Queen Elis and I use to hang there all time. Until Our favorite Bartenders up and left to open their own bar.

Yes was not Amber Valletta a model. I was suprise with her performance as well. Living for Madeline thou.

Regarding JP and KFC....I buy the story. Look I'm not one to say anyone is but he is very light in the loafers and it would explain why he would be with that neurotic mess. I saw a clip of her from Dirty Soap on the Soup....she is just tragic.

Loved me some OLTL today thou. Bollywood rules. Super couple Tea& Blair have some competition from Todd & Louie. Anyone else see that davidvickers acts rings around KFC Lips and Snatchalie.


GH Carly and Shawn Hawt!!! But NuKate was invisible when she had to go up against Carly today. Normaly I like Gothic stories but for some reason Lucky and the search for the pot of Gold is doing nothing for me and who the hell do I have to blow at ABC so they will stop with this Franco storyline and James Franco.

Ashley said...

Breaking news Johnathan Jackson leaving GH.

NOT AMUSED!

ArmlessPhelan said...

Loved me some Days and OLTL today. Such good soap! And seriously, the Patels are amazing. Definitely more than that Snatchalie bitching it up everywhere. Though she is love to hate for me.

Not sad to see Jonathan Jackson gone from GH. I can't stand his Lucky. Even in light-hearted scenes, JJ always teared up. I did love him during the Jake death story, though.

I am still listening to The Archers. That's the most soapy thing I have in my life at the moment.

Mel Got Served said...

Ahh I really need to find some time to listen.

Mel Got Served said...

Also, Dirty Soap rules.

TheGhostofVerlaGrubbs said...

Garin Wolf...I am not AMUSED!

Can we finally age the character of Maxie to over 12 please?! She has become so whinny and just unreasonable that I can't stand her.

Ashley said...

Okay you all who watched The Glee Project need to give me the 411 on the guy who was on last night. I know he was the other winner. I thought the Irish boy was hot. As much as I don't wan't anything to break up Blaine and Kurt....he is too hot not to have on. WOW! Yesterday's Glee was classic Glee. A realistic look at relationships. Loved that even the coach found someone. Gives me hope that maybe even I will find somone.


RINGER!!!!!!!! UGHHHH!!! A week come on. This show reminds me of The Lying Game only in that the writers are so smart to keep the show moving forward every week with one more piece of the puzzle, unlike P.L.L. I can't belive I'm going to say this but Justin Bruening is really good on the show. You have to wonder why Billy Miller is on Y&R. He should be on primetime. Someone snap him up. Jason Dohring......... I heart him

So started to really try and get into DOOL being that I will never be able to stomach that piece of dung that is Bold and The Beautiful and the hot mess that is Y&R. I found a gateway. I love Maggie, Daniel and that young girl who makes all the funny facial expressions. John Aniston seems to be sleep walking through his scenes. yet I love that Maggie and him have major air time as a couple.

Okay someone at ABC needs to open up their eyes. If ever a hit show was in the making...They need to take Bollywood away from Llanview and make it a primetime comedy. Unlike that crap that NBC tried to pull a season or two ago. The Patels or I love Ranma is the real deal. You have great actors that are real not portraying the sterotype. I love them all Ranma, Vimal, the parents and the sister. Why the hell hasn't the Electric company Productions signed them up for OLTL Online. Yesterday was hysterical thanks to them. Vimal's little sister does the impossible she makes NuJack tolerable.

Seriosuly thou. I want more Patels and less Snatchalie.

Another great New Girl despite the new guy who bores me. Love that we saw more C.C.

Mel Got Served said...

Daniel needs a bath.

TheGhostofVerlaGrubbs said...

Here we go!

I knew this would happen....

http://daytimeconfidential.zap2it.com/2011/11/09/one-life-to-lives-farah-fath-on-dirty-soap-its-very-misleading

It's ALWAYS the editing isn't it? KFC Lips just needs to take a moist towelette and go away!

I will just not be happy if Community Chest Productions offers her a contract.

Mel Got Served said...

I'm not saying she's not a complainer, because Farah totally is... but all reality shows are REALLY edited to make storylines. But hey, you signed up for it for zip it and deal!

Terry in Toronto said...

Thanks for catching us up Ashley ... um I mean Jordan! Glad you're back on the blog.

I also love Good Wife especially the character of Kalinda. She's one powerhouse actress who keeps the audience guessing. Right when you think you're starting to figure her out you realize you've got it wrong again.

Not surprised about the JPL and FF story from the airlines. At this point those two are such a non-issue. I still can't understand why she has a job on tv. She's absolutely awful. sigh.

Is anyone watching Oprah on her new OWN show?

ArmlessPhelan said...

Not official yet, but SID is reporting that Prospect Park is not continuing AMC at this time, and is focusing solely on OLTL.

Effing Crapputhers dug it into a hole it just couldn't get out of. :(

Mel Got Served said...

Makes sense. Focus on the show that has most of their cast and excited to try something new. AMC has been story after story of having to try to convince a lot of people who have basically refused to sign on to join. OLTL has like a dozen signed on, AMC has I think 3? I'll blame producers and stuff for putting the show down the drain and leaving it in a state of "why continue?" but I feel like if the actors agreed to join this wouldn't be the predicament.

ArmlessPhelan said...

Here's the info. Note that AMC is on hold, and not cancelled. http://abc.soapsindepth.com/2011/11/prospect-park-puts-amc-on-hold.html

ArmlessPhelan said...

Prospect Park has replied about the AMC rumours. They've delayed it until OLTL has launched, but it has NOT been cancelled. http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118045983?refCatId=14

Cleaning up after Fronshole and Crapputhers is bound to be a monumental affair, after all.

Terry in Toronto said...

It makes sense that OLTL is ready to move to a new platform and AMC is not. It's sad for AMC but OLTL is currently the more solid property and from a business perspective more viable right now.

Anyone else had fun with the "One Life To Live" cancellation references in Starr and porn/music producer storyline?

I don't like that Brody has been turned into such a lowlife. I really hope his actions are explained in some way even if it is his mental illness returning.

Blair has never had better cannoodling than with Eli. Tomas was disappointing. For me. Too bad they did poor Eli in ... never to return.

Can't wait for Natalie's wedding to come crashing down around her. Am I a bad person for wishing much disaster on her?

Ashley said...

Jordan again

Terry I so agree with you. Tomas and Blair have been smoking hot since day one with the longing looks right out of a merchant and Ivory period piece. To have them finally do the deed and it fall beyond flat. The only think I can think of is that it was shot that way to really push the Todd & Blair agenda they have. Which you know how I feel T-N-T forever.

Sadly as much as I hate it, this is all in the character's history. I believe 100% Brody's action. Don't like it. Was so hoping for a Brody/ Jess reunion. The idea of Ford and Jess being the end game ayi caramba!


Last night was a great night for primetime.

Once Upon A Time, The Good Wife, The Walking Dead.

Ashley said...

Again a tip of the hat to the writers of Castle. They never insult the intelligence of the audience. When the premise of the show is a little far fetch...you need to make sure that the writing helps the audience just go with it. Every episode is tight, character driven and never dumbed down. Witty and intelligent like a good 40's comedy. The Bank episode was a perfect example why this show fing rocks

That Queen Elis and I have decided he is Victoria Grayson and I'm Emily Thorne for sure! He called me the other day and left me this Message. "Emily Thorne get out of my beach house and off my son!"

ONCE UPON A TIME....LOVING IT...but not on next week fro the stupid AMA. Please give me my OUAT! All the Princes are smoking hot. Sigh!

I have to say as I'm catching up on Desperate Housewives...it hit me....I'm going to miss them. I did not think I would. The show has been far from perfect over the years but when it was on it was on. It is just like our daytime soaps. You get mad with a storyline tune out for a bit but could always come back. We have seen them give birth, raised their kids, get married, divorced, loose family memebers and somewhere along the line these ladies have become family and now they will be leaving.

The Good Wife......this is what it is like when Adults play. SEXY! Kalinda/Carey/Dana....I needed a cold shower after last night. With a cast of recurring characters that make the show even richer. Hoping Diane gets her swirl on.

The Walking Dead is amazing. Hands down Daryl is my favorite character this season.

ArmlessPhelan said...

Just thought I'd share this with my friends at the PVP. :)

Arizonagal said...

Dirty Soap - JP's first trip to the pacific ocean? I found that strange. By far the most disturbing couple is JP and FF. FF delivers no surprises, she's just as nasty and predictable as one might imagine. What surprises me is JP. There is NADA going on in his brain. He is an absolute juvenile, incapable of adult conversation, totally vacant. It's no wonder he's a one note actor, it all makes sense now. Makes me wonder why FF is sticking around. The little bitch can do better than JP.

Kelly Monaco clearly has self esteem issues, thus the eating disorder and the 18 yr relationship with a burned out thug.

I agree Ashley, no sparks with Nadia and Brandon. But damn, Nadia's mom is merciless and she carries a big stick. That woman, Fary?, has such a huge personality she just takes over the room. Glad she's not my mom!

Kirsten Storm has endometriosis, I guess that can be very serious.

Arizonagal said...

Oh, Jordan, thanks for coming back to the blog, we missed you here so much!! Don't be a stranger, dude.

ArmlessPhelan said...

I'm not hooked yet like many others are, but damn if Revenge isn't some good, old school soap opera!

Also, LaLucci is saying not to blame AMC on her. I wonder what is going on with PP.

ArmlessPhelan said...

So... Allegedly, PP doesn't even have the money for OLTL. I can't blame them for it not working out. They gave it a shot, and are still doing fundraising. I CAN, however, blame ABC and Fronsie for licensing to someone who couldn't pay for the show instead of selling to Sony who really wanted them.

But again, none of this is confirmed.

Terry in Toronto said...

What kind of business are these 'execs' running if they can buy and sell an entire franchise with no money in the bank? When I present my card for payment if there are no funds I am surely declined.

I guess that's how we got into this global mess in the first place. Oh well. I will still hold out hope that OLTL will make it into 2012 in some shape or form.

I would never consider myself a conspiracy theorist, but this announcement that Board Walk/Park Place Productions was going to buy our soaps and keep them coming sure took the wind out of the most vocal protester’s sails. Now it is never going to happen.

First we heard that All My Children would end on ABC on Friday, and start right back again on Monday morning on the old computer. Then, oops….sorry…um we will start All My Children in January. Now its: “All My Children? Who said anything about AMC on the internet anyway?”

I sure could understand those poor Baltic Ave guys having no idea what it costs to make a show like AMC work. It has only been on the air for 41 years, so the production costs must be some kind of cryptic mystery to the entire human race.

Anonymous said...

I hope everyone votes for Jr Martinez tonite!!

ArmlessPhelan said...

So happy for JR! Suck on that, Fronsie!

Arizonagal said...

DWTS hell to the yes!

Nitpicking OLTL, why why why did TIIC have to add this Alex Olanov twist? I see nothing good coming from that. Do we care about Cutter's mom or his tortured past?

Brody you broke my heart, I am so sad for you. Kudos to Mark Lawson for an excellent performance, he really made me sympathize with his situation. John too, good stuff. Snatchalie, same old same old. That little Liam is just so precious, what a beautiful little kid.

OLTL has its flaws but it keeps me so interested, I am really bummed by all this Project Park bad news, but when the suds were cancelled didn't we all really doubt their return? I'll believe it when it happens.

On YR Dr. Angela Hubbard is trying to add some ghetto flavor to her character and I'm not buying it yet. Thrilled to see MCE, hoping it'll be good. Also catching DOOL. Some days it's good, some days... meh... Daytime TV is just not the same w/o AMC and I'm dreading January and the end of OLTL.

Ashley said...

Happy Thanksgiving all you beautiful people.

And not, that doe snot mean YOU, Brian Frons. Go fuck yourself.

http://shar.es/ov1Qi

Sorry for the swear word. I'm effing PISSED. Not only do we NOT get our soaps, but we gotta live with the massacre of the folks we loved as the last eppy legacy.

God, I hope can enjoy my turkey day tomorrow. SO PISSED!!!!!!!!


Ash xo

ArmlessPhelan said...

OLTL and AMC are officially kaput. Sigh. well, PP gave it a solid go. In the end, it all comes back to Fronsie's incompetent ass.

TheGhostofVerlaGrubbs said...

Wishing my fellow Pine Valley Podcast-ers a very Happy Thanksgiving!

At least with the recent announcement by Go Directly to Jail, Do Not Pass Go Productions I can start to process my OLTL's demise and treasure the next 6 weeks it's on the air. I'll be thankful to see everything wrap up with no hopes or empty promises of it continuing. To me, that is the start of some closure.

Norn Cutson said...

Its a double dose of tears today with the BALTIC AVE™ news & now MATTHEW.
...& I hadn't even recovered from cryin' over BRODY!
⚡❤⚡

Shadow said...

Well shit. PPk is a fail. Not surprised, but still such a bummer. And ABC so graciously allowed Carlivatti out of his GH gig. Now they've conveniently ditched the sets, the high priced writers, actors, etc. rather than moving the cast to LA, tying up the rights in this bullshit production company, ruining the endings of both shows, pissing off fans and shitting on its goodwill, ABC could've said both shows will conclude in 2011 straight up, no deceit. Thanked everybody for their hard work and moved on like CBS & NBC. Instead the cast, creator, fans all got screwed over in spades. How convenient the story leaked today. Yes, you release press releases over holidays to bury them, but soap fans are sentimental & holidays usually bring special eps so we're actually paying attention. Disney is a faceless monolith with no conscience or viewer awareness. Like all mega brands, it's about pennies and shares. It's disposable, meaningless, forgettable time fillers and infomercials. ABC died when Disney bought it. An innovative production company or cable net could be a hero & package twice a week eps w/ Lucci's reality show or similar soap reality thing, but I'm with Verla--closure may be the best thing. Wish somebody would just tape Aggie's 2 hour finless she originally planned.

Anyhoo, Happy Turkey Day to you all! May your day be filled with love and friendship and the blessing of a good meal.

Shadow said...

2 hour finale, not finless. Auto-correct sucks!

Shadow said...

Did anybody see Daniel Radcliffe in the Macy's parade? My kids were like 'WTH'? Kind of funny. A talented kid though. Spiderman looked cool, but it was hilarious when he got tangled in his web. No wonder people are getting hurt on that show. Those webs are dangerous! Sister Act must re really fun or completely absurdly stupid. Singing nuns rapping in the street just get the morning going though. Al Roker was running around interviewing the people who were holding the ballon characters. They all looked like they were getting hernias and totally annoyed having to look at and talk to Al. I was waiting for one to trip and cause some balloon carnage. Fortunately Spidey was on the scene.

You all have a wonderful day. I am thankful today that the sweet spirit of Pine Valley still lives here amongst our friendly community of bloggers. AMC brought us together, but much more significantly it is the friendship snd commeraderie that keep us together--modern day pen pals in the digital world. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Terry in Toronto said...

Happy American Thanksgiving Pine Valley Podcast Bloggers!

Had to work today and not eating any turkey tonight but thinking of you and very very thankful for all the laughter, warmth and asstoot commentary Ashley, Jordan, Taylor and all you wonderful people have brought into my life.

Arizonagal said...

OLTL - what a heartbreaking week. So sad to see Brody land back at square one, but I feel TPTB are leaving us a little room to dream that he may eventually be alright? How great was it that Jessica visited him. Loved the fact that Brody's character was treated with respect and he wasn't just used as a throw away character.

I was so moved when Bo and Nora left his office for the final and he was saluted by his officers. Robert Wood is just so great and so subtle, I respected his performance and so many times when I watch him I think of the fact that Woods is a veteran of Vietnam in RL and I always noticed how he proudly had those photos of him in Vietnam displayed on the walls of his office. I like Wendy Moniz, remember her from back in GL days when she played Dinah. She's aged well and if the show was not ending, she could have been an interesting addition to the canvas.

It was so great to have Matthew narrating the episode, and it was a moment of hope that this would be the day he awoke from his coma even though there were comments throughout the episode that made his situation seemed doomed. His death is heartbreaking, he's so young, he'll never get to see his child, his parents were so not prepared to lose a child, his life is wasted, his death is a real senseless tragedy.

Ashley I don't think Shane is as awkward a teen as you do, but damn is he maturing, voice changing, growing so tall. He still has a better complexion than Snatchalie. Shane and Clint really were touching, I loved Clint finally reaching out and so wanting Shane to forgive. Even though there were some ridiculous moments with the teens and Rick Powers - laaame - this episode really gave us viewers a glimpse into the heart and soul of the people of Llanview. What would have completed this episode? Dorian and David.

Have ya'll noticed how many times Pine Valley and Erica have been referenced lately?

Oh, and how about Roxy and Nigel, did not see that coming but I like the hell out of it. I hope they go there, and they better hurry!

Personally I am heart broken this show is ending and we all know now there is no online future for OLTL. Someone is missing a huge opportunity to carry on a great tradition.

Don;t forget tho OLTL and AMC oldies are running on soapnet right now. On AMC Zarf has disrobed and is doing yoga in the Fusion offices. That's a little bit of fun and there is actually a Pine Valley Podcast devoted to this episode somewhere in the archives. I'm sure I still have it.

LOVE YOU ALL AND HOPE YOU HAD A HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Terry in Toronto said...

Why did they kill Matthew off?! First he was in a wheelchair for a year, then they turned him evil, had him kill someone, let others take the blame, then a coma and now he's dead. What did that actor do to TPTB? And we're left with that person playing Jack. I never swear but WTF!

What's going to happen to Destiny and their baby?

ArmlessPhelan said...

Terry in Toronto,

I think Ron or Frank one has to hate kids, with all the crap these put the teen scene, through. It's a bit mind-boggling. But still, Monday is gonna be GOOD!!!

Arizonagal said...

I agree, why Matthew and not Jack? As I used to tell my kids all the time, life is not fair. They hated it when I said that! That was a really heartbreaking episode and I was so hoping Matthew would wake up. Bummer! I am not happy for Snatch and John and so sad for Brody.

On "classic" OLTL, I am totally enjoying it, it was good back then, great characters.

Classic AMC OTOH is reminding me of how much it sucked back then, with the arrival of the Satin Slayer and the death of Simone. Not to mention Babe Babe Babe Babe Babe... ick.

Seems like for the last maybe 10 years OLTL has been consistently better written than AMC.

Nevertheless the news these soaps aren't going to have an on line life SUCKS BIG TIME!!! WTF, now is the time for some quality on line programming, come on - someone get their shit together and make this friggin happen!

Arizonagal said...

Okay, my mind is officially blown over the ending of tonight's Walking Dead! Jordan, are you there? What did ya'll think?

TheGhostofVerlaGrubbs said...

When is classic OLTL on??? Tell me, does classic mean 2008?

Oh, and check out Mama Kassie Wesley's Web site. Very heartfelt with emotion on the last nail in OLTL's coffin.

Shadow said...

AZgal, OLTL is referencing PIne Valley and Erica Kane?

Crystal said...

Watching Monday's OLTL right now. I am loving it. I was so mad after Friday I put it off. I should have known it wasn't going to go out that way!

I love watching the Evans family sitting around eating pie!!!

Shadow said...

I thought Matthews death was genius. I was bummed they shocked him back to life. Shortest return fom the dead s/l ever. Not even the obligatory scene in Heaven or visit from his guardian angel.

Am I the only one who thinks Nora's face looks weird? Sort of like a burn victim. She wears heaps of foundation. Snatchaliie is looking rather Fatalie again. Shane needs a haircut. Vicki needs to burn that color blocked, copper colored shirt. Dayum, that is ugly.

Friday was a great episode. Today was ok.

Shadow said...

I do like that Mama Evans. Man, her daughter went from conception to ready to pop in like 6 weeks, but I guess we don't have 9 months to live so it makes sense. She is one of the few people who actually look convincingly pregnant and I don't mean that rudely. She just doesn't have a little baby bump. She's got that full solid front to back solid baby in there look. Nice attention to little details on OLTlL.

How come all the black people on ABC live in dark, depressing homes full of brown, mustardy poo colors. Black people don't like sunlight, blues, greens, etc? The Evans house is a bit depressing, but at least the family is on canvas. Gotta give kudos to OLTL for consistently using the spectrum of race and sex.

OLTL still has quirks that annoy me sometimes, but when it shows it's heartt, focuses on the Buchanans, ditches the stupid shit that's always circling Rex and Gigi, it's as good as anything on Primetime, if not better. I always preferred the simple stories on OLTL. It always lost me when things like Eterna, Wild West, the Umpteenth personality change cropped up. (Although I could watch some stuff like Tina going over the falls 1000 times!) But scenes like Viki managing her family Thanksgiving, Clint apologizing to Shane & asking for forgiveness, Matthew narrating on his deathbed, Mama Evans saying a prayer for the Buchanans, the Evans family eating real pie--that stuff wins me back. There is something in those scenes very Pine Valley-ish. I appreciate the references to PineValley & Erica. I think it's OLTL cast & crew saying "we're here for you AMC fans...in the same boat...we're in this together". I love that in recent years OLTL has found subtle ways to communicate with its audience. So much talent on AMC and OLTL--so much more than on most shows. So smart. So clever. So squandered by ABC. It didn't have to come to this, and that is so frustrating.

Oh yeah. Apparently all crazy people wear expensive, matching designer sweats in the Crazy House.

OK Everyone. Ron and crew got me. I will admit it. They bummed me out last week only to deliver the one and only Thanksgiving spirit episode courtesy of the Evans family prayers bringing Matthew back to Destiny and the baby. There's no shame in acknowledging that Ron's storyline was much better than if he hadn't had me all up in arms before giving the fans what we want.

I am saving this episode for all the love, on so many levels, that it puts out there in Llanview PA.

Peace and Joy all,

It's me Jordan.

Okay a brand new bizarre podcast is on it's way. Ash and I think it's a good one but we are still finding our footing without Amc as our Anchor. We talk about OLTL, Revenge, Dominicans, J-Ho, AMA, the sad state GH is in and while we ran out of time for me to tell you all what That Queen Elis did this time. I did give you a Flashback of how we met. Ashley had to get home to relive the nanny precious she had to catch a bus.

After Latley is even funnier then Chelsesa Latley and most sitcoms (Whitney and I'm sure The Chelses show starring boring Laura Pepper). So glad this show is back.

Glee kicked ass yesterday. I know it's not for everyone and homophobe Tracy Morgan and his side kick T.I. sure must think the show has an agenda trying to turn kids (thou I still OLTL is much more Gay then Glee). It is a message that needs to be heard. This was so much more then Santanna coming out. I loved all the various themes that were touched.

Okay no suprise but I cried watching this week's Once Upon A Time. It was a well crafted story with a beautiful message. I guess this show gets to me...because with so much going wrong in the world. It's nice to escape for an hour and be a kid again. When you wish upon a star....


T.I. should shut his ignorant mouth and only open it when he is recording between prison visits. For that moron to defend Tracy Morgan's homophobia by saying that Gays are sensitive. Hate is Hate. One is able to tell the difference between a joke even one in poor taste and when one is spewing hatred. I guess the african American community was being sensitive when Michael Richards was using the N word. I wish i could see T.I. face to face....he is a DUMBASS to the 10th power ignorant fool.

Arizonagal...Still in shock with the ending of The Walking Dead. Shane is ireedeemable. I want him put out like the rabid dog he is. Daryl and Carl are my favorites. Can't believe they are going to make us wait till Feb.


Yes one of the best things on OLTL was The Evans clan....I can't get enough of them. Unlike Ash...I adore eddie and think he is very talented. Glad that Matthew lived.

Shadow said...

I'm sure you all hear. Valentini is back in as EP of GH & the chick is gone. Great news.

Oh but friends, this is the moment you have been waiting for. I will smile all day tomorrow after reading and seeing this from Gawker. Follow the link.

Can't wait for the new podcast episode! Been missing Ashley and Jordan bigtime.

Over the moon that FV is heading to GH. GH was my first soap and got me hooked as a tyke some 21 years ago but I have absolutely hated it since 2001....interesting that's the year JFP started. Gloria Monty, Wesley Kenney, and Wendy Riche were the producers who made GH. JFP destroyed it...

... SoapNet is gonna run a marathon of The Spew December 15th and 16th, I think. Effing Fronshole just has to prove that he can't even let that channel die with some sort of dignity.

Good grief! While over at , Second Chances, a proboard.com fan site dedicated to Jeff Branson/"Jonathan"/"Shane" and now "Ronan", I happened to follow a link to soapoperanetwork.com---the online versions of AMC & OLTL lost funding????---That's disapointing! :-(

Mark said...

I have sunk to a new low - I now watch Jerry Springer instead of AMC.

I tried to DVR GH but could not get into it. I still DVR OLTL and have for years but I watch that at 10pm.

Is there a show I can DVR and watch at lunch? Last night I set my DVR to record DOOL, but I know nothing about it - I've always been an ABC person (got hooked in college).

I'm also hesitant to get invested in a new show only to have it cancelled and it puts me in the same funk I now experience. However, I would give it a shot as I can't believe everything will get cancelled.

So for now, its Springer and the hope that maybe Prospect Park will sell its rights to AMC and OLTL to Sony who will play it on one of the channels.

Rescue me from Springer...your input is valued.

Hollow feeling...no joy, no sadness. He killed it all and is now creeping back into the shaodws.

ArmlessPhelan said...

It's nice to see Fronsie gone, but it's a case of too little too late. :/ Hopefully GH at least has a fighting chance now.

I really do think I hate him.

Ding dong “The Fronz” is gone. Poor Barbara Walters must be so sad. Maybe they will have a good cry together and she can comfort him with her bony, crypt-keeper hands.

BTW does anyone else find it harder and harder to distinguish Barbara Walters from pop sensation Barry Manilow? I believe they may be the same person.

Arizonagal said...

Is there a Youtube of Fatali breaking that bed? If so it would be the first thing I've ever watched on the Chew.

Arizonagal said...

Like napalm clearing out a rain forest, Fronz cut a swath of destruction through ABC daytime that we will never forget. What else is left for him to do but get his ugly ass off ABC. Good riddance to worthless rubbish. I hope that fool never works again.

BTW I think Baba Wawa and Barry Man have the same plastic surgeon. You can see it around those stretched cheeks and that scary "smile".

Arizonagal said...

Oh wait, that's agent orange, no? Napalm was for burning out villages? The mind wanders.
