THE BEST SOAP OPERA IN THE HISTORY OF TELEVISION!!!
I am simply overjoyed to see so much love for this unique and
daytime soap! I have always loved this show (and I am NOT a daytime soap
fan), and it seems to me that just about everyone who has seen it would
agree that it was way above the cut. I came across it quite by accident
became addicted for years to come.
Many people have mentioned how great the writing was, or how it
to incorporate comedy into it regularly. The storylines were always
intricate, thrilling and well thought-out. Some of the actors on this
were simply Oscar-worthy, and many have gone on to achieve considerable
success in the industry, most notably Robin Wright Penn (She was always a
The relationship/repartee between Mason (Lane Davies) and Julia
Grahn) was pure, unadulterated genius. They were like "Moonlighting"
Hepburn & Tracy. Gina (Robin Mattson) and Keith (Justin Deas) were simply
outrageous! Never were two evil people so darn entertaining at every
Not only that, but Ms. Mattson managed to make Gina a character who you
could sympathize with on same level, in spite of all her flaws. Her love
for her son, Brandon, was NEVER in question, although her treatment of
about everyone else was deplorable! I should mention that the original
(Linda Gibboney) was simply outstanding, and I was shocked to see her go.
It took me a while to warm up to Ms. Mattson, who gave the character a
different twist, but in her capable and accomplished hands, I grew to love
This show worked on so many levels. It definitely deserved the Emmys
it won. In fact, it deserved many, many more.
I would like to take a moment to comment on the real people behind
characters. I am an actor, writer, director, singer and producer. I used
to watch this show when I was about 12 and 13 years old. As a young kid
with stars in his eyes, I would write to all the actors, and so many of
were beyond accomodating.
A Martinez, who played Cruz, used to write back to me every month.
And, he didn't just drop a note. He would write complete letters,
all my questions and responding to all my hopes and aspirations. He saw
this young kid who looked up to him, and he embraced it. It is people
that who truly gave me inspiration to follow my dreams and
Another one who would always take the time to write me back was Jane
Sibbett, who played Jane. These people really took the time to reach out
me and make me feel valued, and that has affected me into my adult years.
should point out that both of these actors work consisitently. Jane
was part of another superb show called "Herman's Head" for four years. I
truly am happy for them.
Finally, I had the pleasure of running into Judith McConnell, who
played Sophia, at an audition recently. I couldn't resist telling her how
much I loved the show. She was with her daughter, and her eyes just lit
I can tell you, from speaking to her, that she loved doing the show as
as we loved watching it. They knew they had something special and
extraordinary, and the years she spent on that show are very fond in her
memory. Meeting her was a great experience, because I got to connect to
in a real way. She was very gracious and appreciative, and can I say she
looks fabulous? She looks like she's still in her late thirties, and
got to be about sixty!
I wish every one who had a part in this show success, and I would be
honored one day to work with just about any of them.
