And while you're at it, Grandpahughes, if you were a fan of Somerset read that too. (Shameless plug over.) On a more serious note, all of us have talent over at the DRtv boards. There's some good work being done over there. Nelson, read those DRtv boards and give us a plug! lol

Thanks for the tip ,Sungrey! I always support new and promising talent and I used to belong to a site which encouraged members to post their own serials which I followed faithfully! I WAS a fan of Somerset and was disappointed by the wasted potential when it was cancelled! I will DEFINITELY check it out! I was like a kid in a candy store when I opened DRtv! I LOVE that there are so many options! When I see so much work being turned out by fans and budding pros, I have a little bit of optimism that just maybe Daytime ISN'T dead! The fresh approach that Nelson Branco brings to soap reporting is also encouraging! I'm even ready to buy an issue of SOD for the first time in AGES to read the Kim Zimmer interview! :)

Please don't think I'm being snobby or lazy for not reading the fan fic, just from the titles I can tell they're all great. But I hardly have time to write my articles, watch all the soaps, watch my prime time diet, write my other columns (which are 90 percent of my income, yet the soaps take 99 percent of my time discuss), as well as do my film work, as well as develop a TV project that has a lot of interest. If I read the fan fic, I know I'm done for. And I'll probably have to quit soaps because, although that will happen sooner than later, if I have proof you guys are more talented than the soap scribes, I'll really lose it. And of course, you are. A dead fetus is more talented than most of these people. Oh, was that harsh? Fan fic is really new to me because I left the soap world for 5 years and I had no idea until I posted here it existed. So impressed!

I'm surprised that you have time to even post on this board! :)

Let us know if you hear anything about LL or SS getting fired too. The rumor on Jossip is that LL was fired but SS wasn't.

Sure, Nelson, sure! You just don't wanna get wrapped up in shows that you know are better than most of what's on the air. :)

Thanks for the shout out, at least, and thanks for lurking here to provide us w/info.

That's what I said! U have no idea how much TV, film and music I have to see/listen to, and still write. No wonder I have no life. And then the theatre, etc I love. This is why I'm John McBain LOL! The soaps are the worst 8 hours a day. Not complaining.... but I know the fan fic is better, and if I read it I will really scream bloody murder. Your titles, characters, and casting all seem perfect. I wonder if the execs read? Like Mimi and Tom C said, fans should be in charge. Totally agree. Having said that, I may do a story down the road on the best fan fic compared/contrasted to the crap we have on the tube.
