Since the Writers Strike is unofficially, officially over I thought it might be fun to reflect about what we all consider to be the Best & Worst of the Writers Strike for our favorite soaps. What are the things that were better during the Writers Strike and what are the things that were worse during the Writers Strike.

Here is my list.


1. Spreading the acting wealth around at General Hospital. We've seen a lot more people than we are accustomed to.

2. One Life to Live staying the awesome soap it was thanks to Ron's soap bible.

3. Debbie Morgan, Darnell Williams, and Rebecca Budig returning to daytime.

4. Slight improvements over at Young & Restless.

5. Guiding Light reportedly having the foresight of having scripts through February.

6. General Hospital proving that ratings can go up without Guza at the helm.
