Trivia

In the late 1970s, Harding Lemay penned a story that would introduce the first gay character to daytime. He planned to have Michael Randolph, son of show stalwarts John and Pat Randolph, return home from college and announce his homosexuality, which would in turn contribute to his parent's marital breakup. Procter and Gamble, the show's owner, axed the story days before the first scene of the story was to be filmed. See more »

1 January 2005 | by mutterlSee all my reviews

I recently found soap-net on my TV and was so excited to see that they are airing old episodes of Another World. I tape each show and watch them over and over, especially the "Snow Flake Ball" episodes. What beauty and glamor they showed! I've been watching Another World since the very beginning as a small girl because it was on when i got home from school and the maid was watching as she ironed shirts. I also learned how to iron as well! I always loved the show because it had an element of mystery about it. Now that I'm older, it's so refreshing to see a show that stays with the real problems and emotions of it's characters rather than the silly, off the wall, fantasy driven plots of the shows now. The shows today seem to be competing to see which is the most surreal, racy, and ridiculous. Take me away to Another World anytime.
