    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    Five months of Rita! Jesus wept! I imagine it was quite hard for viewers to get into The Colbys too. I rewatched the start of season one recently and it is quite sluggish and takes a while for the momentum to kick in, so to have this sluggishness protracted over alternating weeks would have...

    Sons & Daughters Watching/rewatching/discussing The Aussie Hit Show

    I thought the same thing too but as you said, it may have been a one off fee for the autographs. Slightly off topic but the image they used in that newspaper report might actually make a good boxset cover for any future release.

    Sons & Daughters Watching/rewatching/discussing The Aussie Hit Show

    Exactly. I know that national morning talk show Studio 10 have Rowena on intermittently to talk about anything and everything from her career to most recently, her falling while out walking her dogs, so a boxset release would be a perfect opportunity to have her on again and also raise some...

    Sons & Daughters Watching/rewatching/discussing The Aussie Hit Show

    :D:D:D As you pointed out, it isn't the cheapest boxset and isn't getting much promotion either. I suppose outside of soap super fan circles, it is a rather niche buy.

    Secrets 1992

    Bare Essence is top of my wishlist too but I'd be surprised if it ever turns up online again. Ditto, Harold Robbins' The Survivors, which I've read is a bit of a snoozefest but I'm very curious to see what a 60's jet set soap looks like. I watched the first episode of Peyton Place over the...

    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    That's interesting regarding The Colbys original timeslot. I didn't spot that when I was looking it up but I see now it premiered on a Friday before shifting to Dallas slot on Wednesdays for the month of February before returning to Fridays in March, on rotation with Dynasty. It explains the...

    Secrets 1992

    I know. It is a real "first world problem" At present, I've dived into The Bold and the Beautiful as my daily watch (having recently finished The Heights). I still have a lengthy list of stuff saved that I'm unlikely to ever get around to including Eldorado, Out of The Blue, the Crossroads...

    Secrets 1992

    I'd heard of this show in reference to Hayden Christensen and Gordon Thomson but I never knew about the German connection. Were Canadian soaps popular in Germany? It seems like an odd co-production otherwise. BBC rather misguidedly peppered Eldorado with scenes of the non-British characters...

    Secrets 1992

    That's an interesting approach to casting. I gave it a quick look but I won't be adding it to my ever growing list of soaps to watch on YouTube. I've dredged up a few images from Secrets. It appears to have mixed the daytime look with location shooting. Kind of similar to New World's other...

    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    I'm not surprised by the complaint aspect. The BBC is often put on a pedestal because of the license fee, so to see that they were airing stuff like the UFO cliffhanger in primetime, was quite surprising to me as I figured certain viewers would be up in arms about it.

    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    Was the spoiler element big with Dynasty or did you manage to avoid them? There's a clip of Emma Samms and Gordon Thomson on Wogan where she talks about the UFO cliffhanger before it had aired in the UK and Thomson jokes about her giving away the plot and she's like "they already know"...

    Secrets 1992

    I'd heard about Ocean Ave (probably because of the Sunset Beach connection). I've never watched it but I see that the bulk of the episodes are now online. BBC did something similar when the super popular Australian soap Neighbours defected to a rival channel. They commissioned another Aussie...

    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    There was also actually a couple of weeks between the end of season 3 and the start of season 4 but then seasons 4, 5 & 6 just ran one into the other without any breaks. Again, I'm guessing ratings were good and the BBC wanted to keep churning out more & more while the show was hot.

    Secrets 1992

    I only know what I've read online about it and the only clips I've seen of it are the few on Jamie Lyn Bauer's website & the opening credits that used to be on YouTube. From what I've read, it only aired in a handful of European countries (France, Italy, Germany & Estonia). It kind of reminds...

    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    I've had a look and there was actually a slight break between the season finales you mentioned above & the next season premieres (2 weeks for Dynasty & 4 weeks for The Colbys). What I'm most surprised by is that of all the big 80's soaps, Dynasty and The Colbys were the only two to see out their...

    Dynasty and The Colbys running order

    I'm not usually one for dragging up age old threads but I came on here to find out what sequence to watch The Colbys with Dynasty (thanks @Toni ) as I now possess all episodes of both series! Anyway, I saw @Alexis question and as I'm a TV listings loving weirdo, I thought I'd answer. In the UK...

    The Bold and the Beautiful Watching The Bold and the Beautiful

    Hey guys. I'm looking to get back into watching a US soap and B&B seems to be the most accessible given it's shorter running time. I'm wondering at what point in the last few years would you recommend to start at? As in when was a good storyline/s kicking off or character/s entering the fray...

    Filthy Rich

    Variety have expanded on the reasons behind the cancellation. The cost of producing it amid coronavirus restrictions played a large part, so steady (albeit low) ratings weren't enough to keep it going. https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/filthy-rich-next-canceled-fox-one-season-1234820300/

    Filthy Rich

    The live ratings haven't been huge but they have been consistent (they only dropped by 25% week on week with the most recent episode), so I thought they might keep it going on the basis of consistency. In saying that, I haven't watched since episode 2, so it's not like I'll lament the loss.

    Thanks! I watched the show when he "died" but couldn't remember the ins & outs of whether his body was recovered etc.
