What was Billy voted on Y&R? (Soaps.com)
How did your shows do in 2008? Soaps.com wants to know from you, what you felt were a few of the best and worst things about the soaps for last year. We’d also like to know about what you’d like to see happen in 2009!
Here are a few of the thoughts that our writing staff have put together for how they felt 2008 went for each of their shows. It’s all in fun. Whether you agree or disagree, we’d love to hear from you.
Kristina Knight regales us with her thoughts on the year’s end for All My Children. Find out who she doesn’t mind seeing shirtless!
Kristi went on to blog about the goings on in Oakdale with this As The World Turns 2008 opinion piece. She discusses Barbara’s cancer, Craig’s escapes and return, and tells you what she thinks about the whole Carly, Janet and Jack triangle! You know you’re either going to agree or disagree. Either way, why not leave her a note?
What happened in 2008 on the dramatic soap, Bold and The Beautiful? Lori Wilson has the scoop, as usual. She’s always on target whether it be ranting or giving some great feedback. She’s got the good, the bad and even kudos for one of the cast. You’ll even be as surprised as me, when she admits who she has a soap crush on! She says, “He never made much of an impression on me before, but after witnessing his new Zen-like attitude, I became drawn to him.” Hmm, who could it be?
Days of our Lives had a rough year. Find out why I, (Christine Fix) say, “…she’s a little over the top,” and read about who I felt the biggest waste of talent was and what the biggest surprises were! I’m curious as to whether or not you agree and would love feedback!
Julie Clark Robinson wants to know your thoughts on quite a few interesting questions such as ‘Best Dramatic Moment’, ‘Most Overused Character’, just to name a few. Check out her various polls, vote and then find out who the winner is. Here’s a hint, he’s in the mob! Stroll on over to 2008’s best and worst of General Hospital to read the rest!
Matthew Purvis, who recently went on a set visit with the oldest soap, tells fans his overview on the best and worst of Guiding Light. Insightfully done, and Matt really wants you to vote on your thoughts on GL’s new style. Find out who he’s talking about when he says, "Personally, I didn’t care that he left. I think he’s been boring for years." Vote on two more polls and find out what he feels about poor Ashlee!
One Life To Live had a fine year, Amy Mistretta will tell you, but what does she say made the best storyline of 2008? I can tell without looking, knowing it was truly one of the most poignant storylines on last year! Find out who had her crying, and why she says, "…I felt a huge letdown from the show…" Then vote in her polls!
Most of you have already read the rants that Candace Young produces, weekly in her Friday thoughts on the show. Wait until you read what she has to say about The Young and The Restless in this best and worst of 2008 piece. Check out the best move of 2008, which I happen to agree with, along with the worst move – something I also agree with, and reminisce and giggle about the silliest storylines before wishing on what should come in 2009!
From Amy Mistretta, Candace Young, Deanna Barnert, Julie Clark Robinson, Kristina Knight, Lori Wilson, Matthew Purvis, all of our reliable substitute writing staff, our developmental staff…. And myself, thank you, and we look forward to seeing you all in 2009 and giving you all the drama you can handle!
