I'll Miss You Llanview
It is a cold afternoon here in Minnesota, the snow is falling in big flakes bust very gently. They sky is grey while the world outside looks calm and serene. I am in my living room, dressed up a little bit out of respect for my favorite show. I opened a bottle of champagne, toasted my favorite characters, couples, the show itself. The day the cancellation was announced, I was at work. It was...
GUEST BLOG: My Good-Bye to One Life to Live
Soaps, as a whole (daytime and primetime) have played a huge part of my television life. My very first soap memory, at the age of four, was Julie Olson’s face on our big old box tv. I’ve been a soap fan for over thirty years. THIRTY. My relationships with my shows outlasts any other relationship I’ve ever been a part of. And now, they are slowly going away. I can...

This week, the final five episodes of One Life to Live, will air on ABC. A week from now instead of getting ready to find out what’s going on with Starr, Natalie, Viki, Clint, Bo or Rex I have no idea what I will be doing.

Sunday Marathons: Coupling
One of my favorite television shows ever, is the British comedy Coupling. I discovered it in college on Valentines night 2002 when I was in my dorm room in the all-girls dorm. Before I knew it, I was sucked into the lives of Steve, Susan, Sally, Patrick, Jeff and Jane. I was really thankful that when I went home for the summer to my Dad’s house that they also had the BBCAmerica so I could...
Thank You All My Children
I grew up with my Mother watching soap operas. I have fuzzy memories of what was on the television screen. My first crystal clear memory of the soaps my Mother watched however, are of All My Children. I remember being in the second grade, home sick with a sore throat or the flu. I really just remember being miserable and wanting to be near my Mother. Curled up on the rose print love seat...
