When it was good, it was great but when it was bad, it got worse!
Santa Barbara came on with the hopes of changing the daytime industry and it did to many respects. THe Dobsons should be applauded for their soap. Sadly, Santa Barbara was on NBC which does not care for it's daytime audience. As an Another WOrld fan, I can say that network does not show the respect of daytime drama audiences by canceling one of it's soaps. Santa Barbara tried to be like other soaps just when it came out but it didn't work. Then, they brought together Cruz and Eden played by A Martinez and Marcy Walker. They were very good together. The casting was beyond to describe. The cast included Dame Judith Anderson, Janis Paige, Nicolas Coaster (a soap vet to say the least), Sydney Penney, Nancy Lee Grahn, Louise Sorel, Jed Allan, Jane McConnell, and the list just goes on. When you are a favorite of Jill Farren Phelps, you become quite active on the show. Just to say that Grahn and Allan both joined General HOspital since Santa Barbara. The writing was witty and weird, brilliant and sometimes sloppy at the height of Santa Barbara's fame. But sadly, this show became a casualty of daytime's losing audience. Most people don't stay at home during the days like they used too. There are daytime audiences like me willing to tape while at work. I'll just wonder what it might have been if Santa Barbara had been allowed to grow old and gracefully. Santa Barbara won't be forgotten anytime soon. We still have a bit of it on General HOspital.
