Here is my version of best and worst for 2012. This is far from a complete list and just how I feel today about daytime soap opera related items. First will be general soap opera thoughts and later I will have two for each of the four soaps still on the air plus One Life to Live, which aired its last show in January 2012.

Just wanted to do a short summary of North and South: Book One. I have the eight DVD set of the three miniseries which ran in the 80s and 90s. The show is based on John Jakes novels about the US before, during and after the Civil War. The first book takes place before the Civil War and in the early days of the conflict.

Since there are only four daytime soap operas on the air, I can condense my Christmas in Soapland to one post this year. Here are my quick summaries of what happened to the denizens of Genoa City, Los Angeles, Port Charles and Salem. Due to what happened in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012 the episodes were pushed back a day, so most soap towns celebrated Christmas Day on Boxing Day instead.

Here are my thoughts and a summary of the second disc of "The Bold and the Beautiful" set entitled "How it all began." The second disc are episodes five through eight of the series that aired in March 1987.
Just found on YouTube.com two episodes of the cast of Days of Our Lives versus the cast of The Young & The Restless on Family Feud. These episodes were made in 1984 for the syndicated version of the program.

On Monday, December 17, 2012, The CW aired Gossip Girl's last episode. The show which filmed primarily in New York City, was primarily about a group students at a Constance Billard School and we followed their lives from that school to adulthood from 2007 - 2012. This spoils the end of the series.

Thomas Forrester (Adam Gregory) thought he had everything set with his professional life, as he was the acting CEO of his family's company, Forrester Creations. With his grandmother Stephanie's (Susan Flannery) death, he was set to inherit 25% of the company making him the primary shareholder.

One of the newest plots on Days of Our Lives, is how Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Eileen Davidson) have now begun sleeping together. The relationship is surprising for a lot of reasons, which I'd like to discuss.
