On today’s ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey and Regan discuss the latest in All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live headlines and storylines, including:
Zach and Kendall are back together on All My Children, but not for long. Kate Collins returns to Pine Valley as Janet From Another Planet. Find out what Jamey thinks of JR and Annie. Regan shares the latest scoop on Palmer’s funeral and the returns of Daisy and Nina. You’ll never believe where All My Children writers are getting storyline inspiration.
Drew Garrett’s final General Hospital episode airs. Did GH make the right decision to recast Michael near the climax of its gripping story? Chad Duell debuts this week. Dante uses Morgan to get at Michael. Where will this leave Sonny and should GH keep Dante on the straight and narrow as a cop or should he go to the dark side and work for his father? Is GH wasting Bradley Cole in the abuse storyline the same way they wasted Martha Byrne last fall? Regan shares a rumor about Kiefer’s mother.
One Life to Live’s last Kish episode together airs. We loved their final scenes, but is it still worth fighting for diversity in soaps or should fans be looking for it in primetime? Does OLTL’s musical seem a bit inappropriate? Regan and Luke think so, but Jamey disagrees. Is OLTL cleaning house to make room for Thorsten Kaye to return?
Have soaps run their course, as P&G executives have said, or is there still hope for the genre?
