Trivia

In April 1995, the show was setting up a storyline in which one character planned to set off a bomb at the wedding of two other characters. When the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, in Oklahoma City, was destroyed by a bomb on April 19th, producers immediately canceled the storyline. They appeared at the beginning of one episode to explain their decision. See more »

This is One of the Greatest Soaps!
23 August 1999 | by brniis77See all my reviews

I have been a fan of All My Children for about 5 years now. I think that this soap is really one of the classics. It has great characters and really great story-lines. I have recently enjoyed the story-line involving Haley, Mateo, and Raquel. I was a little disappointed when they fired Dimitre and most recently Raquel, but I think that whatever happens, the show will stay remain one of the tops in it's field. Please watch this soap daily! You won't be disappointed!
