It was supposed to be Daytime's shot at Primetime
27 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

And Lord knows they had enough chances at that.

The angle here, or the promotion, was that 'your favorite daytime stars were going to be appearing in primetime'.

This was after all the Luke and Laura brouhaha from General Hospital, and suddenly soap operas were popular amongst teen agers out of school during the summer.

Before cable is all I can add.

Plot generally was the cast of a popular soap are being killed off, one by one.

Who could be doing it? Was it the sexy producer of the show (Pleshette) and we get a detective as well (Barry Newman).

Now it didn't help (or maybe it didn't hurt) that I hadnt a clue who Pleshette or Newman were at that time either, as actors go.

But the clincher was our soap cast.

Our soap cast.

John Gabriel from Ryan's Hope.

Stuart Damon and Robin Mattson from General Hospital.

Peter Bergman from All My Children.

Robert S. Woods from One Life To Live.

Let's see, the movie began with Bergman being thrown out a window.

We only briefly glimpse Woods on a TV set.

Was Gabriel stabbed? Or poisoned? Doesn't matter.

There was quite a bit of dialogue from Mattson, giving the impression she was a nutcase (she played the villianess Heather Webber on GH back then) and cant recall what happened to her either. Stabbed or fell thru a glass coffee table, it seems.

Damon was playing up the ultimate sinister role. Was he the killer or was he just afraid. I think he was shot.

In the end, the killer was the last person you would expect it to be. Basically what soaps do; a major league cop out.

Would I want to see this again? Oh no.

ONce was enough.
