Dallas has set the date for saying goodbye.
So many new shows, so much fail.
This fairy tale isn't going anywhere.
Nothing could upstage the Oscars except... Charlie Sheen's career suicide.
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Are you blacking out from those tequila shots yet?
Comic-Con is over, but news is still trickling out...
Hopefully this is the last time we ever have to write about The X Factor drama...
So since I seem to be assuming the position of the TWoP bullpen's soap opera guru during Miss Alli's quest for a daytime show to latch onto, I feel like I should answer some of the lingering questions that an hour of General Hospital weren't able to answer for her. Perhaps if you're looking to adopt a daytime drama, these footnotes will help you, too. Though if you're wondering why Alan Quartermain got killed off only to have that actor remain on the show as a ghost anyway, I am not your man.
I am wondering exactly that, my friend. I am an '80s-GH alum who remembers the likes of the O'Connors v. Lucy Coe; Anna Devane peeling off her scar; Emma freakin' Samms; Kin Shriner's original hairline; and Frisco's unbelievably protracted return from Bulgaria or Fakecountryistan or wherever the DVX prison he escaped from was ostensibly located, which they dragged out over a month of Fridays, showing his shadowy Unabearded figure for like three seconds at 3:54 PM...people, I remember Colton Shore. (And not fondly. Shut up, Colton.) I tell you all this by way of explaining that I know it does not pay to wonder about matters of this nature, and yet, wonder I do.
I also wonder when that picture at the left was taken, because I remember a lot of things about the Grant Putnam/Andrews storyline (...unfortunately), but I sure as hell don't remember that gnarly mullet. Or the Rottweiler. Although that could actually just be a really good picture of Dr. Tony Jones. [rimshot]
I've got nothing against daytime soap operas, in fact, Santa Barbara was my after school treat and All My Children was one of the few things that my college roommate and I could agree on, but I haven't been a regular watcher of any of them since Passions went off of network television. And, in general, I'm sad that they are sort of a dying breed. That said, I'm still floored by the news that James Franco is going to join the cast of General Hospital for a two month guest arc.
