    I do not get POP ….
    and- it’s not online ..


    Harry replied

    Su00, it’s okay. There is so much terrific stuff out there already that you don’t need to worry about watching this crap.


  3. Kalle says:

    Maura West (Ava Jerome on GH) would be a terrific Marylin’s impersonator.


  4. Rivka says:

    QOD is wonderful. It drew me in quickly. Donna Mills is a jewel. To me there is no difference between daytime and nighttime dramas. It’s great to see daytime actors proving this.


    Shay replied

    And nighttime’s Donna Mills is proving likewise on GH! She is fabulous, Rivka! I was so glad to see her return this past Monday, delivering her lines with her trademark dose of derision….the priceless “mamacita” crack was served up with dripping disdain! I’m anxiously awaiting Maddie’s release from the hoosegow so that she can get those obviously overgrown dark roots touched up and slip back into her designer finery. This lady is too magnificent to kept behind bars in drab prison wear and away from the movers and shakers of Port Charles! (Besides which, she needs to dispense with her new snake-in-law, Ric….if looks could kill, Mr. Lansing would already be dead after his unforgettable jail visit with Madeline!)

    Enjoying the show, but it’s about the furthest thing from a docu-series—-it’s a totally scripted show! They bring in Lance Cumson, er Lorenzon Lamas, Joan Collins, etc. Who’s next….someone from DALLAS (let’s hope!!)?

    I love Marilyn but this looks really idiotic and unnecessary -
