Old memories
22 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show, along with Edge of Night,As the World Turns and Guiding Light when I was a kid during the summer vacation with my mother. Back then, they stayed on for only 15 minutes each. I can still hear that organ playing every time a reaction was required and the actor would freeze. Classic. There didn't seem to be as much sex back then -- I mean the plots were similar in that at least once Erica Kane-type character seemed to marry every man in town at least once and children had a knack of growing 10 years in a week but the sex was more implied and I think that was better. Nowadays, well, you know how it is nowadays.
