Great to have this new feature! I remember when newspapers routinely carried such re-cap columns every week. It was a good way to keep up with soaps that you weren't able to watch regularly (before there were even VCRs) and maybe get curious about shows you hadn't been following.

I have REALLY enjoyed TV Squad's recent look at soaps and all the little casting tid bits that have come up the last couple months. I have watched ABC soaps since in the womb! I DVR them every day and can sometimes get through all 3 hours in 25 minutes depending on the day, storylines & my interest in certain stories. Thanks again TV Squad!! I am one happy reader who always has an opinion on ANY ABC soap storyline! :)

Great column! It's making me want to get back to watching GH. I was a devoted fan for at least 20 years beginning around 1980 with the Luke and Laura storyline. The past ten years or so, I've slacked off. I tuned in the other day and now it's all about the next generation, none of whom I really know!

All My Children and One Life to Live were my backup soaps. Maybe I'll just start with GH for now.

Thanks for adding this feature, it's actually really had to find succinct and short summaries of a soap for a week. I'm trying to catch up on AMC before the big funeral that's coming in a couple weeks.

I want to thank you for including the Bold and the Beautiful, as Soapnet does not!! Now my two questions are 1.When
and How did Sheila have TIME to have children? between raising havoc on Y&R and then on B&B, and returning to Y&R, plus when she returned she met Tom for the FIRST time and as crazy as he was, he realized that SHEILA was more crazy
than HE WAS, and decided to have nothing to do with her! My three friends and I have said for years that the writers
are on drugs but this is impossible to swallow. Now second how did Mitch save Rex and Gigi's son IF he is not related?

So wait: we have the whole Patty/Emily plot and now Y&R is going to have yet ANOTHER villain who has had plastic surgery to look like someone else??
