Quote Paggie: Loved this episode for exactly the same reasons. I cared about the characters I was watching - just as I have done for years. New faces were either supporting established characters or adding just a "splash" of new interest to the canvas. Carmine is the soap staple "jeopardy" character to create drama. Relationships drove stories. Character history and interconnections were played. The teen story was tied to the vets story. It was all blended together in a way that reminded me of Bill Bell's storytelling. This is the formula that works!
Quote Joy T: Unfortunately, I am not sure any formula is going to work. There are very few stay at home parents these days unlike the past when our Mom's stayed home and watched. New age retirees are busy and on the go so they don't have the interests as our grandmas. Teens seem to care less about it.
I'm able to DVR or watch it on soap channel at night. I think we better enjoy it as much as we can because the end may be coming sooner than we think. :(
