SANTA (BARBARA), BABY!
Santa Claus has been arrested by smarmy DA Keith (Justin Deas)! (Where did all those toys come from, huh?) And it's Julia (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Mason (Lane Davies) to the rescue, in this Christmas-themed episode of Santa Barbara:
When I interviewed Lane for Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments enhanced e-book, he told me: Mason’s top moment? I am sadly under-qualified to make a judgment like that. I'd put some of the early Santa Barbara episodes against the best of them, though.
A fan, however, did write: I loved the Mason and Julia love story, and I think Santa Barbara was so extraordinarily terrific with Santa Claus during the Christmas episode….
