Sara Bibel posted a great piece about yesterday’s inaugural festivities. As she mentioned, this was one preemption most of us can cheer. She also made a great point about Y&R’s mention of now-President Obama and Neil’s reaction to Obama’s election and inauguration.
I agree with all of this, of course, and that soaps, at their best, mirror real life.
Sometimes, soaps can even be prescient…….
Last summer, viewers of One Life to Live saw The Hat:
But viewers of yesterday’s inauguration saw The Hat to End All Hats. Sorry, Dorian.
Now, THAT hat puts Dorian’s hat – and any other hat – to shame. THAT hat is Not To Be Trifled With.
The Queen of Soul (who loves her CBS soaps) knows how to bring the drama!
