  2. I can't lie, I listened to this podcast 3x's this morning in my lab. I love how no matter if the 3 of you are being critical of a soap (well deserved with AMC!) or waxing poetic on another one (LOL!) the fact that all of you just LOVE SOAPS (like me!) just SHINES through!!!

    I really wish that Sarah Brown could've acted with James Franco. I originally fell in love with GH largely by watching Lucky/Liz originally falling in love with each other so I'm interested to see how it plays out. I'm hoping that having J.J. front-burner will change the dynamic of the show.

    Loved the Stephanie Shirt modeling Mala! I've be recording B&B without realizing it (after Y&R), and I've been watching it this past week because Mala loves it so much (I watched from '98-'02). It's pretty good, and the fact that it's only 1/2 hr gives it more leeway in my book. I liked when u 3 talked about the P&G/GH&PC crossover. Re:the Agnes Nixon soaps, I LOVED the Dorian/Adam interaction during the best (IMO) babyswitch storyline in 2004.

    Also, I've been getting into watching a storyline on the German Soap Verbotene Liebe on YouTube.

    After the name Sandy Summers on B& question to the 3 of you is...what are you favorite soap opera names?

    Oh, and how can I end without saying how much I LOVED the 2nd Y&R Mr. Kitty Video!!!

  3. Beth, thanks so much for listening. We really appreciate it and I love reading your thoughts and feedback.
