Best Soap Ever!
When I was a kid in the 70s, I watched soaps with my mother. It was all the ABC ones. All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. When I was about 12 or 13. Luke and Laura got married, I wanted to see it so bad, I told my mother I was sick and stayed home from school. Over the years I stopped watching the other two and stuck with GH. It's still the best soap I've ever seen. It's not as good as it used to be but it's good. I would love to see less Sonny and Carly and more Luke and (whoever). When Luke was the hero, the show as truly great. Since now it's all about Sonny, it's getting really boring. The same old mobster stuff, Sonny isn't heroic he's a crook.

Maybe in the future GH will regain it's backbone. Maybe draw clear lines between good and evil like it did in it's hey day.

Trivia

Jack Crosby, a nephew of The Crosby tribe, was the first art director to design scenery for the new (1963) black and white television daily daytime drama series. The initial set design for a room, looked like an open book, with a right side wing joining a flat center wall, the left wing wall extending the floor plan. Openings for doors and windows were located in various positions on each set. The set's painted color was neutral middle value beige-gray hues, with no wall-paper. Any hint at wall paper, or texture, was provided by a scenic roller paint pattern which was vogue in this era. The scenery height was eight (8'-0") foot high. Usually, network soap sets are ten feet high. All the sets were shallow in depth, minimum furniture and set decoration. Usually pictures were hung across wall expanses to establish an actors movement through the set. Competition from NBC TV and CBS TV daytime drama ratings forced the producers into expanding the physical production elements of the scenery and decoration. Neither NBC TV nor ABC TV used a set decorator. CBS TV was the only network employing and assigning a set decorator to their shows. Like a summer stock theater, scenery was designed, supervised, and decorated by the set designer/art director. Assistant Art Directors were employed after production became more involved, with time management determining additional support positions. In early television, like the theater, the designer was expected to cover everything in his design area.
