Another World

Show Summary

For thirty-five years, Another World was a much loved part of the NBC daytime lineup. Fans followed the Frame, Cory, Hudson, and many other families through trial and tribulation, pain and pleasure. Another World was the first soap to expand to an hour (then 90 minutes from March 1979-August 1980). It also was the first soap to have spin-offs (Somerset and Texas). In April of 1999, the parent company and network made a decision not to continue the program, and the show aired it's final episode in June of 1999. Although gone from the airwaves, the show will live on in the hearts of the fans. "We do not live in this world alone, but in a thousand other worlds." Created By: Irna Phillips with William J.

    • "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.moreless

      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
