I miss Port Charles ... it was short run, and I think I was it's only fan, but I liked it ...

There were many other old daytime friends like Ryan's Hope?

OMG, I LOVED Another World. I got hooked to daytime soaps pretty late in life. In 1994/5, while an undergrad at university, a friend of mine introduced me to Another World (the first ever daytime soap I watched) and I loved it. I planned my entire life around it. I really do miss it and cannot understand why it was cancelled..... :(

I wish it was still on cause then maybe Michael Easton (john) wouldn't be infecting OLTL with his boring acting

I remember Ryan's Hope and there was another 30 minute soap on CBS that I don't remember the name of. It was about a politician and his family or something like that. It was on before B&B was created, in that time slot.

Good ranster! I loved Capitol and was disappointed when it ended. I can't remember the actress on it that I liked. I think she was married to David Hasselhoff(I know how much you enjoy him, ranster..lol) at one time. Catherine somebody?? I like the idea of 30 minute soaps...a quick fix everyday so I can move on with life..lol

I remember Port Charles too and liked it. You weren't the only fan ranster. As short of a run that it had...here it was even shorter because locally it was replaced or put on a channel that I don't get (don't have cable/satellite/or anything else...just plain ol' tv...lol).

Catherine Hickland, she is now married to All My Children's Michael Knight (lol yes same name as David Hasselhoff's Knight Rider character) who plays Tad. She plays Lindsay on One Life To Live. (the dual role of Julie Clegg and Jenny Diamond on "Capitol," and as Dr. Courtney Marshall on "Texas." "The City" (1995) TV Series .... Tess Wilder Partou Huston

"Loving" (1983/I) TV Series .... Tess Wilder Partou Huston, she was also a temp placement as Brooke Logan Forrester on Bold and The Beautiful)

Miss Loving but mostly miss The City. But the Loving murders were something I ran home to watch EVERY day.

I love Another World and Texas! They took Another World off because of low ratings and they needed the spot for Passions. I still can't belive they did that!

I loved Another World , General Hospital way back when Laura was raped by Luke , Days of Our lives when Marlena was married to some one beside John and Roman her first Husband actually and her Twin was still alive ( Killed by the Salem Strangler aka Jake Cosselchek brother of Chris Cosselcheck who was played by the same character that last I looked was playing Roman Brady)

I Loved Santa Barbara and Edge of Night.

But for those Another world fans I have a trivia Question For you lets see who gets it.

Felicia Gallant was known to Hang around Querky People , one of her Best Friends was Eugene who later Married Calliopee and left the show. Now the Question is What is the Character Known as Eugene on Another World is Best Know today as What character, and on what show.

I liked Port Charles until the vampire storyline. Right now I just watch All My Children and I only catch it on days off and when march madness is not going on. I have watched some GH and OLTL in the past, but only have time to follow one soap right now.

loved Capitol and the feuding McCandless & Clegg families, Capitol was cancelled to make way for the Bold & Beautiful a soap I never watched because it led to Capitol being cancelled

just like I never watched Passions as it was the reason Another World was cancelled followed Another World and its 2 spin-offs Somerset and Texas.

also miss Search for Tomorrow, Loving, and Generations.

my grandmother has bee a General Hospital fan since it first started on the air.

I was hooked when I was 16 during the summer of the Luke and Laura atory years ago, but then didn't watch for years until my pregnancies with my 2 kids. I was on bed rest and about the only thing to do was watch soaps. (and cross-stictch) Haven't watched in years though. Do they still have those characters that made us laugh like Tracy Quartermaine, or Lucy?

Did anyone follow the half-hour soap from 1966-1971 on ABC-Tv ? it was a gothic, supernatural, time-travelling, spooky soap opera called Dark Shadows and was about the Collins family who live in the haunted/cursed Collinwood mansion in Collinsport, Maine. Along with witches, werewolves, ghost, zombies, and vampire Barnabas Collins.

While it had its Tv run it also was made into movies at the theatre.

1970 House of Dark Shadows (MGM)

1971 Night of Dark Shadows (MGM)

I've seen the 2 movies but never did see the 1,225 episodes of the daytime soap.

But I did see the 12 episodes of the 1991 revival series on NBC-Tv it was a night time soap on Fridays.

Johnny Depp purchased the rights to make a new Dark Shadows movie for the theatres where

he will play Vampire Barnabas Collins, I am thinking Tim Burton will direct. And I am hoping it will draw enough

interest that some network will re-run the original Dark Shadows soap opera.

DARK SHADOWS
