LOL @ Deidre almost going in to the voting matter. She side-stepped it though.

I'm wondering now what's better - working 80-90 hours a week or shooting the same amount of episodes in 25-30 hours. Well, I won't speak about the quality, but both can be very exhausting. Couldn't they find some more balanced ways to do this?

Bahah I would have bought Deidre's book for the title alone if she had called it "Does This Mascara Make My Ass Look Big? LMAO!

I've stopped trying to understand all his... baseball talk. I'm Norwegian, so I just play that card.

Yoryla, if you do want to see her at least talk a little about, search for Nelson Branco interviews with her, she talked about it a little more in an interview after she left. Sad thing is, she's absolutely right, the system is effed up and needs to be changed completely. Not just tweaks. But she and several other of the soap superstars have been talking about that for years (Deidre began to mention it in the early 90s), and nothing has been done, so I don't think it's likely they will.

I'm glad that she mentioned there being fewer shows and how that affects their chances now. This is absolutely true, and I guess I don't necessarily expect them to be like "what's the big deal? We have no competition" but it's one of my main frustrations with the current process. Especially since no one seems to even acknowledge it.

It was interesting hearing about them talk about how they used to shoot scene by scene.

Thanks, Room. I'll check it.

He's talking about all the preparation to getting up to bat...first you're on the bench in the dugout, next you're in the hole, then you're on deck & finally you step up to the plate. It sounds like they used to rehearse over & over before shooting. Now they block it & shoot it. For some that's good because it's not stale & for less experienced actors(Kate) she thought it would be better to have more rehearsal.

Grew up in OH is the 70's...love the Reds and learned all my baseball lingo watching them as a kid.

It might have felt "tight" to the actors and been excessive to tape, but I do miss that theatrical quality that the show had sometimes in the 80's, wherever it came from.

It's the reason why I wasn't as excited about their win FINALLY, because it felt more like a win by default.

I agree. It was more like watching film back then. Scenes were long and luxurious. You could really get into it. Now everything is choppy and the editing is so bad. And the sets and lighting just don't seem as thoughtful and realistic as they did back then.

I love this response of Deidre's:

"...and we had John and Marlena -- and there's comfort in that. And I think it's about forgiveness and understanding and something deeper. It's a deep, deep, deep thing. He's home to me. And the audience gets that."
