Our Column in the 4/8 Issue of Soap Opera Digest

If you're so inclined, check out our column on pages 44 and 45 of the issue of Soap Opera Digest that's in your mailbox or on newsstands now.  In it, Becca wonders whether she is the only soap fan/critic who thinks GH's special effects are garbage, and why anyone thinks it's important that soap sets be realistic.  Mallory, meanwhile, provides compelling evidence that All My Children and General Hospital are just reusing storylines from a few years ago -- and not even ones that were good TV the first time around.

Also in the issue are lots of updates about Days, and more celebration of GH's 45th anniversary than the damned show did itself, plus a pretty interesting article about the financial realities for soaps.


I just read that column. It was wonderful. Who cares about the cheesy special effects? We want story. We want romance. Someone at ABC get a clue.

And I absolutely LOVED loved Soap Opera Digest's 45th Anniversary tribute. They had 13 covers with the RIGHT people on them. There was Rick/Lesley, Robert/Holly, Frisco/Felicia, and Duke/Anna. Imagine, SOD remembering these supercouples whereas today's GH totally dissed them in their 45 second montage. Another plus was that Sonny and Jason were only on one cover a piece. Scotty, Bobbie and Sam were included too. It was BALANCED! Now, that's the way to remember a 45th anniversary. Kudos to Soap Opera Digest - you get an A+. Today's GH gets an F!
