GL scares me!

ATWT needs to fix the crap they've done. I can't believe we waited weeks and weeks. I bet someone on the P&G blog messed up by saying there would be a new opening soon and it got us all excited so they had to rush one out.

Y&R needs updates. I hate how it's the #1 soap yet they don't update openings.

B&B is amazing at the quick updates. The editor must get tired of taking out the person he/she's just added after every 3 months though!

days of our lives has the best opening, it has always had the best opening. Days will always keep that hourglass with McDonald Carrey voice. Even if they move networks, Corday will not get rid of that even on ABC.

ATWT is my current fave even with it's problems. I love the music a lot. And the graphics they have used, but they need to add the people they left out.

Days is classic, but I would love to hear a little more jazzier music. But keep the hourglass and the voice. Just jazz it up a little.

Can you guys try to picture the ABC version of the DOOL opening? I can picture all this sand flying everywhere (think desert storm) with bright/contrast effected cast shots. :D


I love the As The World Turns theme song! Global in Canada re-did the in-house closing credits and are using the theme. For those interested, the closing credits begin with the old shortened version of the PGP logo and then white credits (writers, producers, directors, actors) on a black background. If they waited like a week, they could have used the new PGP logo.

I would love that! I hate the current Days opening.

My thoughts on all the openings...

AMC has the best, IMO. The music is great and so are the cast shots. It really gets you excited about the show.

ATWT is also great...I don't get what people think is so bad about it. I wish that more of the cast was featured, but the song is neat and I like the pairs (except I'm thinking they'll eventually make it Noah/Luke and Alison/Aaron).

B&B is okay...it doesn't suck but I don't think it's the best. It's a nice showcase of the cast.

DAYS, as I said, I don't like at all. I would love for it to have cast shots in it. Maybe starting with the original hourglass and music and then the music suddenly gets upbeat as the sand continues to pour past the characters faces. It would probably begin with Sami and end with like....Hope, Bo, Marlena, or John.

GH is a bit too flashy, but I like the music and I would like it if they just cleaned it up a little bit.

GL SUCKS! Worst one out of all of them, which is dumb because their last one that they had was my favorite out of all the soaps. I miss that theme music.

OLTL is okay. I preferred the blue one they had a few years ago.

PSSNS is good. I love the theme song, but like Days, I wish there were shots of cast members...this one would probably begin with Theresa and end with Tabitha.

Y&R would be good if they would add more cast members.

ATWT is ok. Its not the best leaving out cast members such as Luck/Noah, Maddie, Rosanna/Paul.

I like B&B, The music is great and it gets you wanting to watch the show.

DAYS needs to add castmembers.

GH is a bit confusing. You cannot even see some of the cast members. But I like the music

GL SUCKS!

OLTL is to plain though i like the music

PSNS i like but agian CASTMEMBERS!!

I like the Y&R one though i rather them add more castmembers

In ATWT's defense, neither Noah nor Rosanna was on the show when ATWT did the new opening. I am sure at some point both will be added.

Also they were in intense negotiations with Roger Howarth at the time, so that might have influenced that.

Not sure why some like Luke and Nancy and Maddie were left out.

Luke's in the opening-- right behind Alison.

If anyone says that the hourglass is safe at DAYS then think again.

I would have thought the spiining earth in space would be safe at ATWT but it is not. It is long gone. The earth turning in space was as closely identified to that show at the hourglass is to DAYS.

I do not like the new ATWT opening. At first I did. It represents the storytelling now on the show. Only a few characters are featured on a regular basis,like in the opening.

I liked GL's opening at first because I thought it was a nice touch to go along with thie anniversary. It has worn out its' welcome.

if days moves networks in 2009, most likely ABC because Brain Fronz always wanted to have days on his network, i would have to say the hourglass will be gone from days if they move to ABC in 2009 because abc likes the opening with cast members in it.

IF they move to ABC here would have the cast members in it: Bo, Hope, John, Marlena, Steve,Kayla, Chelsea, Nick, EJ, Sami, Lucas, Kate, Lexie, Abe, Stephanie and Jeremy, Maggie and finish off with Alice(if she still on show)

Here's my problem with the cast pics in the opening, while they are nice to look at IT TAKES THEM FOREVER to change it when someone leaves. They only seem to update once a year. We all go on and on about tradition and other things why not leave DAYS opening the same. It is practically an original cast member. Lets not kill it off in favor of some hair blowing in the wind pictures that all the other shows use.
