The Search isn't over
4 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I remember when I first watched soaps in 1981 I remember I wanted to see what the oldest soap (at the time "Search for Tomorrow" was the oldest soap on the air)was like. I liked what I saw and I got hooked on the show but I never understood a show like that was only stayed a half hour where most soaps aired for an hour. I watched it when it was in its last few months on CBS and it had a good thing going on location to Hong Kong with Travis (Rod Arrants, who had a quality of Luke Spencer) and his wife Liza (Sherry Mathis, later Louan Gideon) and they were the super couple of the show. I was glad that NBC picked up the show after CBS cancelled it and gave it a few more years to live. I did like the teenagers scene, Wendy (Lisa Peluso) and Suzi (Cynthia Gibb, then Elizabeth Swackhamer and Terri Eoff)and I thought the show was good. Of course the best was Stephanie (Marie Cheatham). She was the best character they had in Henderson, USA. The only problem this show had was that they had a constant turnover of executive producers and writers that the show got lost with viewers. I did remain true to the show till it got cancelled. But I liked it and was glad to be a fan to a soap that lasted for 35 years. It still lives on and the search isn't over.
