I love Jhonathan on Nashville too. It is great. Now these Vamps coming back to GH. Give it time it might be fun to wink nod and shove shove. We'll see. I'm reserving judgement too.

Bold was funny they were laughing on the set when they finished that scene. They are just making fun of themselves I thought it was great horrible tv.

Gotta agree with Jamey regarding DAYS. It's been very good to great since the Christmas episodes and today's ep was AWESOME. My only concern is whether they can actually keep the momentum going or if instead it falls down again.

Love everything you said about Y&R. Yes, I love Adriana too. Its time for Lauren to be a hoe again. Yes Devanity is excellent with a $5-$7,000 budget. Yes

I agree with Jamey about DAYS, it's a lot of fun right now.

Adriana is cool and she and the boy who plays Noah have chemistry. I'm into it!

As far i'm concerned both Kristina and Starr can go away.

I'm done with B&B. KM is a terrible actress and the character is awful. If the char is suppose to have moral, she is doing just the opposite. Scott is a great actor, but Liam sucks. JMW is a great actress - she just has too many other projects. The whole triangle is stupid. They are ruining Bill.

Love GH, but I agree get rid of Kristina. I do like Starr. Love AJ, Tracy, Lucy and Monica. Today was a tear jerker, even if you don't like Trey his death was so well written. I cried my eyes out when he passed. I thought Olivia premonitions were stupid, but when she say him leave his body and tell her that he was okay, oh my God the tears flew out of my eyes. Sam telling Monica that she loved her.

Y&R is okay, but I'm sick of Sharon.

Y&R needs to do something with the ORIGINAL cougar in its cast, "Gloria". She needs to dump ole Gary, I mean, Jeffrey...

Lauren needs to tackle Carmine...... ooooh la la la la...

B&B is a joke. I know that Donna and Pam are fighting over Eric, but I feel Eric is going to end up once again with Brooke, much to DollaBill's chargrin....

"What are you doing to little Kirkland Harrison?!" = DEAD. I died of a laugh attack. "Kirkina" still has me chuckling.

I wish Y&R went back to telling the business stories beyond who owns Newman or Jabot. It was so fun back in the day to see Ashley in her lab coat, Sharon as a model, Dru meeting in the break room. Well-crafted corporate stories do not require more elaborate sets just well-crafted stories. I would also like to see Lauren have a sordid affair with Carmine. I think Marco Dapper has more charisma and is more interesting to watch than Blake Hood. Tracy Bregman and the audience deserves the story. A bit off-topic: I enjoy how sexy Y&R has become. So many extremely attractive men walking around Genoa City with Neil and Nick leading the pack and not lost in the shuffle. The stories need to pick up steam but at least there's eye-candy.

After giving up on DAYS, this podcast nearly makes me want to watch again. Perhaps I'll look for Kate v. Chloe on YT. I always enjoy Lauren Koslow bitching-out as Kate!

Glad to hear Prospect Park may be getting it together. I do not plan to follow AMC & OLTL online as I was satisfied with their conclusions. Only appearances by Trevor St. John could jar me into checking out OLTL.

I love the podcast and have been listening for years now and listening gets me through my commute and days at work but, I just had to say that I wish everyone would let Luke do his job and moderate the podcast sometimes. Some of the chime-ins are hilarious but sometimes it just seems like people are just trying cut Luke off or shut him down just to do it and it's rude and sometimes unhelpful to the listener.

No, not everyone who listens to the podcast is a reader on the site and they are not necessarily keeping track of soap blogs or social media. So when there's any opportunity to give context about a topic to the listener, it really shouldn't be shut down. Didn't know about the MB tweet so I learned something new.

Anyways, love you guys and keep up the great work.

^^ I would like to co-sign GodivaShorti's above comment. I, too, love this site and podcasts but feel that Luke's treatment gets in the way of hearing exactly what is being said.

Great podcast as usual.

Just in case it interests you, GH is not the only soap to feature a LASA fever storyline. This was also used as a storyline on Australian 1980's prison soap 'Prisoner' (aka Prisoner Cell Block Grade.

I just power through De Vanity it is great. Someone should send a copy to Brad Bell. So he can learn how a good soap is written.

Great podcast guys! Super funny!

And I agree with the above posts about letting Luke give context. I don't have twitter, so I too didn't know about MB's tweet (& I kinda still don't since Luke didn't get to say all that he was trying to say about it).

Also, just so everyone knows: both men AND women have an urethra. That is the "tube" that allows urine to exit the body.
So Jamey was correct with regards to that particular "aerial shot", lol.
