On Thursday, January 26, 2012, Days of Our Lives aired a special episode that ended with a dedication to those in the armed services. The focus was about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and how it affected members of the military.

Last week, I got a search result with the following term “the first day without OLTL sucked". So I named this One Life to Live topic in honor of that. Though I am still composing my opus on the last two episodes, I wanted to write a short blurb.

One of my recent purchases was season one of the television show Hotel that reran SoapNet. It was an Aaron Spelling production that aired in the 1980s for five seasons. During most of its run it came on after Dynasty on ABC.

On the occasion of the first (and hopefully not last) set of Guiding Light from www.soapclassics.com an old episode was released from August 26, 1983. Here is a summary and my thoughts on it. I wasn’t watching back in 1983, but I am familiar with just about every actor or character based on what I saw years later whether it was on GL or from watching other soaps on CBS, ABC, or NBC.

While I’ve watched the last two episodes of One Life to Live, I’m not yet ready to write about them. Instead I’ve decided to write about the January 13, 2012 episode of The View that was a tribute to OLTL.

This is my quick review of Eileen Davidson’s book “Diva Las Vegas”, which was written in 2010. It is her third soap opera mystery novel, (one additional book came out in 2011.) Ms. Davidson currently plays Ashley Abbott McCall on the Young and the Restless, but she has also appeared as Ashley on The Bold and the Beautiful. She also appeared in roles on the soap operas Days of Our Lives (Kristen, Susan and more), and Santa Barbara (Kelly Capwell). My summary/review does spoil some information, but does not give away the killer.

The penultimate week of One Life to Live focused on a prison escape. After leaving Statesville due to a temporary blackout they had engineered, the former Llanview residents visited with the objects of their affections or rather their obsessions.

Here is my version of best and worst for 2011. There are some things I've enjoyed this past year, while others had me shaking my head in confusion.

Birds of Prey ran for one season (2002-2003) on the WB (now the CW). The program was based off of some characters from the DC Comics universe. I started watching it because of its time slot years ago, but found it entertaining enough to want to watch it again.

This is my stream of consciousness style review of the six daytime soap operas that aired in 2011. These are short and sweet and under 150 words each.

There are only nine episodes of One Life to Live left to air. This week we have four shows, and next week there are five. The program is in wrap up phase, but it wasn’t written as an ending exactly. I’m concerned and feeling the end being near. It hit me last week, and the feeling of dread as begun.

This weekend SoapNet is airing a 14 hour marathon of One Life to Live episodes. The programs date from 1979-2010. I am going to summarize the episodes in 3 parts. Part one will focus on the three episodes from 1979, 1987 and 1988. Part two will be the episodes from the 1990s. Part three will be episodes that aired after 2000.
