    Just me goofing around. :) Though DW would be a much more entertaining choice for the four ladies (DM, ML, JvA and CM), since none of them would be willing to play Sophia in a Golden Girls skit. :p ML could do one of Julia Sugarbaker's tirades with Karen-esque overtones. DM would probably have a ball as dimwitted Charlene. CM would adopt Mary Jo's sarcastic, nasally voice, and JvA's take on self-involved beauty queen Suzanne would have CM rolling her eyes so hard, her retinas would detach.:re:

    I don't get it. Who is that guy with them?

    A stylist I gather, but what has he styled them for, a TV-interview or a make over show or a magazine photo shoot or what? :confused:

    Maybe it's connected with Donna Mills new soap Hilton Head Island.

    Maybe Joan and Michele are guest starring to create a bit of buzz

    I'd forgotten about that, but that could definitely be it. If not it's probably just an interview or something. I still wonder how that soap will turn out. I don't know if it'll be styled as a daytime or primetime soap, but I do know it's a religious soap. In the 80s there was a religious soap called Another Life that still managed to be entertaining so I'll check it out if Donna is giving it her stamp of approval.

    Yes I read it's a Christian soap. I don't quite understand what that means apart from there being a moralistic angle to it. The only thing I know of is Little House on the Prarie.

    What constitutes a Christian soap?

    Sounds interesting. I had no idea that Donna Mills have a new show. Also you are right about Little House on the Prairie a Christian soap seems a good description for it! ;)

    Besides "Little House On The Prairie", I guess that drama series like "Highway To Heaven", "Touched By An Angel", and "7th Heaven" also dealt with a lot of religious and moralistic aspects of life!

    A religious-themed soap doesn't necessarily mean everyone sits around praying and reading Bible verses. It would likely resemble soaps of the pre-1970 era, where they used different sources of conflict to generate drama. Rather than having a lot of bed-hopping, crime and murder mysteries, they might have family conflicts or economic struggles--the sort of stuff that you saw on soaps prior to 1970 or so. They also had moral foundations, but is that such a bad thing? One of the chief complaints about modern daytime soaps is their tendency not to punish their evil-doers, but instead to make them the stars of the show. How many times have we seen soap characters not go to jail for murdering people, rapists who marry their victims, and crime bosses who are held up as "wonderful people"?

    A soap can have religious themes and not be "Sermonette at Sunrise". Good lord, look at Greenleaf on the OWN network. It's set in a Church, but it's as amoral and shocking as anything on the air.

    I agree with everything, except for the time aspect.

    What you said actually fits perfectly with the three drama series that I mentioned in another post earlier today. And min you, those drama series are from the 80's and 90's. They dealt with various family issues (big and small) and addressed how to be a decent and caring human being in an increasingly crazy world. And they applied basic Christian values to people's daily life choices.

    Yes, but none of the shows you mentioned were soap operas, so I may have gotten confused. Whatever the case, it might be interesting to see an online soap (it will only air online, right?) that resists the temptation to go "blue" in an effort to be edgy and get attention.

    This article about the show is from The Island Packet, HHI's local newspaper. http://www.islandpacket.com/entertainment/tv/article167004402.html

    He's a stylist, I believe for fashion designer Mark Zunino. Donna and Joan have worked with him before. Yeah, now I'm thinking they were just doing something together regarding that, not Knots Landing. Although it's strange that she put up a camera emoji like they were filming something.

    Maybe we could include Seventh Heaven. That was a 90s 2000s show.
    If they're appearing on this show together, then they are filming something.

    It just occurred to me that it's Exciting Things - plural. What does that mean?

    Nothing, probably. When Americans say "exciting things" it's more of an expression rather than an indication of quantity. I've never heard "Exciting Thing" being used.

    It should be an honest documentary: Did the plastic surgery really make us look better? They all talk honestly about their hopes and insecurities and whether trying to look like a fictitious character they played 30 yrs ago is necessary, helpful or sad. When I say sad I mean it genuinely - I would love them dearly wrinkles 'n all if they were just plain and wrinkled 70 somethings now, like Julie Harris proudly was, instead of morphing into some scary extras from a horror movie like Zombie Flesh Eaters 2. (Although at least maybe Joan could get something to eat if she was cast in that movie.)

    There would be a better chance of finding Amelia Earhart.;)

    Only tangentially related, but if this guy in the photos is a makeup artist/aesthetician, why would he publish photos that have Michele looking as if she just had been crying? Her mascara is all over her eyes. It would make him look like he didn't know what he was doing.
