THANK YOU, SOAP OPERA WEEKLY!
Thank you to Soap Opera Weekly for featuring "Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments" in their latest issue.
Meanwhile, let's talk Kardashians.
Full disclosure: I have no idea who (what?) a Kardashian is.
All I know is that, ever since "Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments" was released in September 2011, it has hovered in the top three best-selling books on Amazon's Television Guides and Reviews list. It's main competition are Will Wheaton's "Memories of the Future" (a really funny episode by episode memoir of "Star Trek: The Next Generation") and a compilation of thoughtful essays on Joss Whedon's cult-hit, "Firefly."
All three books are loving tributes to three beloved, scripted television genres and shows. I can live with this.
What I cannot live with is that, as of this weekend, the #1 slot on the list has been taken over by a book highlighting "Kim Kardashian: In Her Own Words." (It speaks?)
I have written before about the havoc reality TV has wreaked on scripted programming, soaps in particular. And now this insult!
She must be stopped!
