RH: Summarizing Some Stories 1980

Since the SoapNet broadcasts of Ryan’s Hope have gotten us to the end of another year, this time being 1980, I wanted to assess where the program is at with the storylines. Some of this may not be accurate, as at times I’ll have technical difficulties and miss episodes.

Last week marked a changing of the guard on All My Children with Palmer’s Tribute and Adam’s departure from Pine Valley. James Mitchell passed away earlier this year, and they aired a special episode in honor of his character Palmer Cortlandt on Tuesday.

On Friday, April 16, 2010, NBC aired the first co-production of Walmart and Procter & Gamble Productions called Secrets of the Mountain.

AMC: Aiden's Out on DWTS

Occasionally the world of soaps and reality shows cross, but that came to an end this season on “Dancing with the Stars.” Even if there are no performers on the program from the daytime or nighttime serial genre, I still watch DWTS.

OLTL: Goodbye Kimmie

I was planning to write about each of the One Life to Live character departures, but since Rachel's was so uneventful. She told Schuyler that she is going out of town to help a friend move. Rachel didn't even interact one last time with her mom Nora or her brother Matthew. For this reason I'm starting with Kim Andrews and summarizing her time in Llanview.

GH: Happy Anniversary

In honor of General Hospital’s 47th anniversary, I wanted to share my first memories of the show. While what I am writing may seem to be funny it is true to the best of my recollections of my life prior to the age of eight. It is not an April fool’s day joke.
