I think it’s good to have continually updated opening sequences that feature the current cast. However, in the case of B&B they should just show 30 consecutive photos of Scott Clifton as Liam and be done with it. He’s a good actor and I’m sure he’s a great guy but how many consecutive days has he been on now? The way he is written it’s no longer possible to see Liam as a romantic lead or a hopeless romantic in search of true love. He’s now an emotionally stunted, serial proposer who is impossible for any sane viewer to empathize with. Going by the show’s history, Liam’s real perfect match would be…..Brooke.

Was so nice seeing Sally back today. What a breath of fresh air, this fiery redhead is, especially after the insiped and clingy Hope and Steffy. Hope that Wyatt is man enough for her and his old man, just doesn’t decide he wants her too!

No, until the new character becomes a solid fan favorite after a year, stop switching it up. Now Xander Avant, likely a keeper! He completely fits in the world of this show. So, NO, we don’t need the whole opening switched up to see these people that have been on 5 times.

I watch Hollyoaks online which airs on the BBC. Anytime a character exits they’re normally out of the opening sequence within 2 days. If someone has “left” the show it’s normally a clue that they’re coming back if they are not cut from the opening.

What makes if more impressive is that in the opening sequence is normally video shots of 1 – 5 cast members meaning if there are multiple characters in the shots they’re not just having to cut the one person out, but also accommodate the remaining cast members.

I watched today’s episode while at home for lunch (Monday). These new interns are awful to watch. It’s cringe-worthy, along with nuHope.

I still prefer the simplicity of just having a single shot, that of the hourglass (Days), city skyline (EON), clouds (SFT), ambulance to GH, ocean waves (Secret Storm), flowers (Love of Life), spinning globe (ATWT), etc. And I also love the accompanying theme songs. This would mean that outdated photos would not have to be updated all the time. Plus the fact that those openings take way, way too long.
But then, I am remembering shows of the past, and perhaps those “single shot” openings were just that: past and irrelevant today.

Wait Ingo Rademacher appeared on the opening credits on the day he started. And Annika Noelle appeared opening credits a few shows after she started.

Hate to admit it, but this was not the first time the opening was updated. Ingo was added shortly after his debut, and Annika Noelle already had one-shot in the opening after hers, too. Nia and Adain were the only two added, while Annika got a second shot. Those were the only changes that were made.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
