    "We do not live in this world alone, but in a thousand other worlds."

    Premiering on NBC in 1964, "Another World" followed the Matthews, Cory, Hudson, and Frame families as they deal with love, life, and loss in the fictional town of Bay City. In 1975, AW became the first daytime drama to expand into a hour. Four years later, it became the first and, to date, only soap to expand into 90 minutes. The show was also the first to spawn two spin-offs, "Somerset" and "Texas." Celebrities like Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Anne Heche all got their starts on the show. But in 1999, after 35 years on the air, NBC abruptly cancelled "Another World." And even though the show has been off the air for almost a decade, AW's legacy will live on.moreless

    A show brimming with lots of drama.

    Another World. What can I say about this soap opera? First, even though it first came on before I was born and I didn't start to watch it on a regular basis until its last few years on the air, I found it to be pretty entertaining.

    Another thing that I like about the drama is how, even though the storylines revolve around the wealthy inhabitants of the fictional town of Bay City, the situations that they get involved with are, at times, similar to the lives of real people, not those just on the television screen.

    And lastly, another thing that I like about Another World is how in the older episodes of the series, there are several actors that I have familiar with their acting now that I didn't know they were apart of the show, with Anne Heche coming to mind.

    In all, I find this show to be entertaining, and I am glad that SOAPnet is airing the repeats of the show, so I can see what the show was like before I started watching on a regular basis in its final years.moreless

    Another World was the greatest soap of all time. I watched it growing up and the best characters were Vicky/Marley, Jake, Amanda and Sam, MJ and Frankie and Cass of course. They had the best storyline with the who shot Jake story.

    I would rate AW at a 10. It had all the elements needed for a great soap: storylines, acting, characters you could really root for and care about. Passions is OK but AW was better. Anne Heche as Vicky/Marley was brilliant. When she was replaced by Jensen Buchanan it took awhile for me to accept her as my fave character(s), but she did a good enough job to keep me watching. When this show was cancelled it was like an losing an old friend. Days and Passions could learn alot from AW: don't bore your viewers with same old stories..moreless

    Good show, great cast, wonderful story lines!!!!!!!!!

    By bobbysgirl57, May 01, 2006

    I loved watching this show when I was growing up and after I became an adult. The loss of this classic show was very saddening to me. I wish some how there was a way to live those days by it being released once again on DVD.

    Silly maybe, but what a pleasure it would be to see the cast of one of my faviorte shows doing what they did best. Entertaining!!!

    Daytime drama set in a fictional midwestern town, where we follow the lives of the wealthy Cory and Matthews families and their friends. The show ran until 1999, when it more or less sailed off into its own proverbial sunset.

    I started watching Another World in the mid 1980s, when my grandmother moved in with us. I more or less grew up on soap operas. I think one of the things that I loved so much about that show is that there was an underlying humor in a lot of the plot lines. When the show lost some of their actors, they lovingly wrote it into the show. I cried along with the people on the show when they grieved for patriarch Mac Cory (played by Douglas Watson). I think my all time favorite couple of the 15+ years I watched the show was Cass Winthrop and Frankie Frame Wintrop, and it was a bittersweet ending of the show to have Frankie looking down on the remarriage of Cass to Lila. I was so excited when Soapnet picked up Another World, and even more excited when it picked it up from a few years afer I first started watching, right in the height of the Cory/Hudson/Frame/Winthrop excitement. I think Another World was definitely underrated in its day, and was a fun soap to watch!moreless

    The intoxicating story of the wealthy, the powerful, the everyman, the stars, and their shadows. 35 of taste and trash.

    By Lady_Poison, Dec 28, 2005

    I grew up watching this show and was sorely disappointed when it was cancelled. I remember taping the last episode, hoping one day for a reunion, and vowing NEVER to watch anything which replaced it! I still watch the reruns on SoapNet, I still hope for a reunion, but I did break the vow and after a few years, started watching "Passions." I still believe this could have fit in the schedule, but alas, I am not the television powers-that-be. This show covered it all, from the location shots, to the will-they-won't-they weddings, to even a dead wife coming back as a ghost on her husband's wedding day to give him and their daughter her blessing. If you didn't catch it the first time, hit the reruns, other than those clothes we wore in the 80's, you'll love may even still love those clothes, too.moreless

    A soap surrounding the lives of the people of Bay City.

    By sapphirem1973, Oct 16, 2005

    I would watch this on & off through the years when I was a teenager. I would love most of the storylines & hate some of the others. I even got to meet a few of the actors & actresses from the soap, but only because their studio was based in Brooklyn. It's funny to watch it now & see how we used to dress LOL Most of the storylines I remember but a lot of it I forgot, so it's like watching it for the first time all over again. I have to admitt I am enjoying it as much as I did the first time 'round.moreless
