  1. I loved the Carly/Lawrence scene at the end of Friday but I knew who they were plus CC was rocking those crazy/dead eyes I think that they'll do some flashbacks and reintroduce both the characters through them. And yes I'll be watching GH (I almost got away) when JJ returns my first cruch!

  2. Great podcast! And I love the idea of a podcast dedicated to the foreign soaps! You're right that soaps are more global these days. Just look at Elizabeth Hubbard on GTST.

  3. Thanks for the Suzanne Rogers interview. Enjoyed it! Smart of Days to give this unsung veteran a renaissance.

    Crystal Chappell's debut starts with a bang then you're gone friday cliffhanger. Carly looks like a badass. Can't wait to see how her story unfolds.

    Crazy soap week. Franco & Jackson on GH. I would check out GH to see what they do.

    Minshew & Kaye not making the move with AMC. Can't blame them for not moving.

    Good podcast, look forward to the next.
