    Quote Supercouplevilly: Before high school, my sister wat8hed GH, I never got into it. I guess sometime after my parent's second divorce, I had the house to myself. I think it was Danny and Cricket that got me hooked, then I just watched all of the ones on CBS. I remember PB taking over as Jack, and I'm a little fuzzy, but I think there was different soap before B&B.


    There was one called Capitol before B&B. it didn't last very long, however.

    I remember watching soaps with my mother when I was very young. As far as Y&R, it was back when Snapper was on. I also remember when Katherine was put in the mental hospital. I have no idea around what year that was.

    I'm also a viewer from waaaaay back. I would watch GL, Search For Tomorrow, Secret Storm, ATWT and Edge of Night. I'm 62 and I think I remember watching as far back as 1956. Every now and then I'll pull up some segments on Youtube and listen to the theme music from that time and boy it brings up great memories. Makes me think of my mom who passed away years ago.

    My friend and I started watching Love of Life during summers while we were in HS. Tess and Bill were the big storyline then. Later, handsome Christopher Reeve was on.
    All My Children started about the time I became a stay at home mom. Erica amazed me. The girl could turn the town upside down. There were only a few channels to watch then. I also watched Search for Tomorrow, Ryan's Hope, One Life to Live, General Hospital, Y&R and B&B thru the years.
