    Was Krystle a Meat & Potatoes Kinda Gal...?

    …a.k.a. Had Hilda Gunnerson's Cuisine Slipped Over the Years? Obviously, blame the deteriorating scripts. But, if you want to explain it away, whatever happened to those divine dishes of yore Alexis evoked upon her return to the Carrington kitchen? Ratatouille and rack of lamb and pink...

    A Love Remembered 2.0

    In a distant universe, long before Desperate Housewives and even Melrose Place, in October 1990 to be exact, a young Blake and Alexis Carrington 2.0 had already consummated their passions for one another. A universe (Lucky Chances) conceived by the late sister of the woman who played the...

    Episode Structure & Scene Length

    While watching last week's episode it occurred to me to pay attention to the episode structure in terms of the number of scenes and breaks and though I've always known the new series had more frequent breaks and a higher number of faster-paced scenes as opposed to the original series I was quite...

    MAGA Thugs Attack 'Empire' Star

    They called him "that f***** Empire n*****", put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him and beat him up fracturing his rib while screaming "this is MAGA country."

    Useless (But Fun) DYNASTY Tidbits & Trivia

    I recall a long DYNASTY thread on the old SOAPCHAT forum which was filled with pages and pages of trivia, so - as I've recently immersed myself in the archives of old newspapers and magazines - I thought of posting a collection of little nuggets of useless information about our good ole lily...

    "Noel Coward it isn't."

    Good old Barbs. Bitchslappin' the shoulderpads out of 'em. Of course, I think she was being too harsh on the writers. I love 'The Colbys'. But, bless her heart anyway.

    The Colbys Mansion

    I came across some old photos of the Jay Paley residence circa 1938 and I was going to post them in a Colbys mansion thread, but I realized there hasn't been one since SoapChat crashed and got resurrected in 2016. So, I'll kick one off with these photos. The Holmby Hills mansion in Bel Air from...

    A Day on the Set of DYNASTY

    All that nostalgia in the recent "First DYNASTY Memories" thread got me to look up some old listings and newspaper scans from the former Yugoslavia, where - as I already mentioned - DYNASTY had become a ratings-grabbing phenomenon in the mid 1980s. One of the articles I came across is taken...

    Michael Cohen Flipping on Trump?

    ABC News is reporting Trump's crooked attorney's attorneys are leaving him, he does not have a replacement lined up and will likely cooperate with the federal authorities. If that's the case, this could be a very bad day for the Orange Scum...

    The Filoli Estate Photo & Video Collection

    I am compelled to create this thread having just seen what I assume is a new commercial for Estée Lauder called "Beautiful". Perhaps you can all add your favorite photos and videos, past and present, of the Filoli estate? The estate has its own YouTube channel, which also includes a 21-minute...

    Trump Congratulates Putin on Winning Sham Elections

    President of the United States called the Russian dictator today. He didn't bring up Russian meddling in US elections. Nor did he say a word about the savage use of a military-grade nerve agent on UK soil which put a Russian spy and numerous UK citizens into a hospital. Instead, he congratulated...

    I've always liked Latin music, but I've never been obsessed with any of it. That is until I discovered MALUMA, who is apparently a Colombian superstar. First I saw him in this collaboration with RICKY MARTIN (the video has almost 1.4 billion views on YouTube) and I was intrigued to know who he...

    Over-hyped Nunes Memo is a Dud

    LOL. After FOX News spent the past 2 weeks over-hyping the David Nunes memo -- whose only purpose was to undermine the FBI and torpedo the Muller investigation by proving it was based on the supposedly dodgy Christopher Steele dossier -- this dud of a memo finally landed with a thud on Friday by...

    Trust [FX Series]

    I've been looking forward to seeing the first glimpse of this series ever since it was announced. We finally have a trailer and premiere date (March 25). The original trailer on the FX channel won't play in all territories, so I found an alternative video link. Donald Sutherland, Hillary Swank...
