Soap World Mourns James E. Reilly.

October 13th, 2008 by Christine Fix

As we have announced both on Soap Opera Fan original site -Read the notice here. and on, our sister site, James E. Reilly has passed away at age 60.

James did to soaps what no other writer has. He wrote groundbreaking storylines that we likely will never see again on any other soap. He made us stare in awe and even made some laugh, and yes, others upset, with the imaginative and maybe for some, bizarre, stories. Remember the Marlena Possession storyline? That was his! What about the space age-like Gemini Twins storyline, that both confused us and made us think. Nobody can refute that the Melaswen Island/Salem Stalker storyline wasn’t an original idea, can they? He was also innovative in his work on Passions. He created witches, devils, Fluffy, the humongus and scary cat, the hermaphrodite, Vincent, who became pregnant with his own father’s child, a mermaid… he was a pioneer! What other show at that time had two women in bed together, two men in bed together… the list goes on!

We will all mourn James E. Reilly for what he brought to the soap world, and we offer our deepest condolences to those who knew him and loved him.

Why Do You Love Soap Operas?

September 8th, 2008 by Christine Fix

We want to hear from you!

Soap opera lovers are exceedingly loyal. That’s evident after getting to know those of you who have watched your stories for 20, 40 and yes, even 70 years! Working for two soap opera websites, we hear a lot of complaints and negative rants about what you don’t like about your soaps. That’s fine. There are times when we complain, too! We definitely hear you, but this time, we’d like to extend an invitation to stray from the norm.

We want to know what you love about your soaps!

We want you to dig deep and recall only the positive aspects of viewing your soaps. Give us details! If it’s specific storylines and how they relate to you, we want to know. If it’s something that has touched your life, for whatever reason, we’d love if you’d share! If it’s how they teach you what to do or what not to do, let us know! If it’s the drama, the intrigue, the mystery, romance and twisted zaniness of daytime dramas, we’d like to hear! So let’s step into fall with a positive attitude, and share those stories!

ABC Using Stars To Promote Soaps!

July 24th, 2008 by Amy Mistretta

As if the drama, scandal and love triangles weren’t enough to keep us glued to our favorite soaps, ABC has found yet another way to keep us watching – and to lure the non-soap fan into becoming one! ABC is setting out on its latest campaign to get the Generation Y viewers (those born between 1980 and 1994) to incorporate soaps into their daily schedule by using famous celebrities, who we wouldn’t normally connect with soaps, to attract viewers by giving their own little teasers and thoughts about such things as soap fashion, romance and character strengths.
