Greetings, dear readers. Sorry to have been away so long. I was just thinking.... I hate it when people diss soaps by saying things like, "Oh, they just tell the same stories all the time." Well, sometimes there is some deja vu in daytime but as I watched today's sampling,

Did you catch the 5-6-10 episode of GH? I hope the SKate fans did. Kate and Sonny finally discussed that she knew about Dante. Finally!!

Hello Dear Readers,
Sorry to have been away. So, let's talk GH…. Have you been reading the posts about Sonny's trial? While Sonny (and his portrayer Maurice Benard) certainly has a strong, loyal fan base, I've seen a lot of negativity out there about how "this could never happen!" From the jury selection to the courtroom histrionics, I agree. It is exaggerated and over the top, but this is entertainment, after all.

While everyone is still reeling from the cancellation of the venerable 72-year-old soap GUIDING LIGHT, did anyone else find it ironic that the news came on the same day as GENERAL HOSPITAL's 46th anniversary and one day before AS THE WORLD TURNS's 53rd?

I hope you appreciated my year-end gift — which was NOT to do a best/worst list for soaps, since every other entertainment writer/soap journalist/hack — and their mother — slapped one onto a magazine page/Internet blog/bathroom wall. However, I will share with you one of my more delightful job-related surprises from the year that passed.

So, did you catch the GH Thanksgiving episode? If you didn't, you missed something really special. I personally lobbied for it for Editors' Choice for the week but was outvoted. (Eh, it happens.) I don't always go for the fantasy episodes but what I loved about this one was mixing up characters who never get to play together. My highlights were:

At this time of year, we're supposed to reflect on all we have and be thankful. While there's a lot of criticisms I could lobby about what I'd like to see on GH (more vets, more Quartermaines, more romance, etc.), 'tis the season focus on the positive so, here are five things I'm thankful for about GH.
