    Ahh, yes, those were the days when we still had a plethora of soaps at our daily disposal. I still hold fast to my delusions that one of these days we're going to experience a daytime / nightime soap revival and we'll once again have multiple soaps to b*tch about. Well a girl can dream, can't she?

    Meanwhile, we still have Mistresses, for now at least.

    I remember Usenet and the alt newsgroups very well, Ellen. I wrote interactive fiction in several of them and even started one back in the 90's. Thanks for the memories.

    I had a feeling that the guy from CSI, investigating Karen for her patient's files, would play a bigger part. I didn't see the previews but, lordy, I sure am looking forward to seeing what happens if April's husband is seen. Excellent soap fodder!!!! loving it!

    And of course, these women are silly and make so many mistakes....that's what makes it good! It's a delightful typical soap and I love it. I think w/the real soaps, we get a little confused with the same characters having soooo many affairs, committing sooo many crimes, with sooo many people. So it's refreshing to see new characters bumbling thru life.

    Actually, we DO have a bunch of evening soap operas on these days: in addition to MISTRESSES, we've got my favorite, ARMY WIVES, and now there's THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS ( on OWN), THE FOSTERS, DEVIOUS MAIDS, DALLAS and probably a few others that I can't think of at the moment.

    Mmmmmmm, I sure hope so. He is GORGEOUS! And Karen's partner is extremely attractive as well. And so is Joss's boss, for that matter.

    True enough. The Haves and the Have Nots is cheesy, predictable soap opera at its finest and I'm already addicted.

    Yes, definitely lots of eye candy. I'm thrilled that it looks like Gary Diordan will be a regular on this show. He's always been quite easy on the eyes.

    Me neither! I'm looking forward to seeing the smackdown between Harry and Dom at the party.

    Also, whether April's husband is really alive or is she just seeing dead people.

    Oh Lordy, Joss has moved in with April now. She must not be selling any properties because she can't even afford her own apartment. Maybe she'll help April stand up to the mistress.

    Hot DANG! What a show tonight! Lots of new storylines / conflicts set up tonight. Not sure if tonight's show is done airing in the US yet, so I'll bite my tongue for the moment just in case.

    AlwaysVeg yes, Joss seems to be taking freeloading to a whole new level, doesn't she?
