    As a long-time fan of daytime soaps I’m glad to see ABC celebrating its long-rich history so I’m definitely watching that documentary and speaking of great documentaries man The Last Dance was incredible just finished it this past Sunday. Even if you’re not a sports fan you will enjoy it. Hopefully I can get a chance to see Stargirl’s series premiere tonight.

  2. If I’m really bored (and I’m always really bored anymore) then maybe I’ll tune into some of “The Story of Soaps.” As a teenager, I enjoyed ABC’s soap schedule and watched GH during it’s prime Luke/Laura years.

  3. I am looking forward to seeing this special…I began watching the soaps in the 70’s when I was about 8. I watched them w/my beloved grandmother who let me know if I wanted to watch tv I had to watch the “stories” w/her! I knew them all, All My Children, One Life to Live, General Hospital, The Young & The Restless (the only one I watch today, since they took AMC & OLTL off) I’m lost w/GH (my man Luke Spencer is gone), Santa Barbara, Generations, Ryan’s Hope, Search For Tomorrow, The Edge of Night, Passions, Capitol, As the World Turns, Another World, Days of Our Lives, The Guiding Light, Port Charles & The City. I was so into the soaps I had to tape them while I was at work or I would watch them on my lunch hour! I purchased Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly. Watching the soaps put you in fantasy world…from Luke & Laura’s adventures, who killed Will Cortlandt, Angie & Jesse, Viki’s many personalities, Erica Kane’s many marriages, Katherine & Jill’s famous fights, Nikki & Victor, Nick & Sharon, Neil & Dru, Karen testifying, Tracy not giving her father his heart medicine, etc. It was good tv!! Love in the Afternoon!
