    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.

    NBC (ended 1993)
    Santa Barbara was a long-running soap opera centered on the lives of a wealthy Capwell family, living in Santa Barbara, California, and the other families such as the Lockridges, Andrades and Perkinses. The show was created by Bridget and Jerome Dobson, the two writers that gave the show dramatic stories combined with comedy and romance. After the Dobsons were forced to leave the show in 1987, the soap changed, started focusing on different characters and the show was never the same. In 1991, the Dobsons returned to the show, but were unable to save the show, and then got fired again. In 1992, Pamela K. Long was hired as the new Head Writer and, in an attempt to save the show, she introduced a bunch of new characters and left out many original characters, which only buried the show deeper. During its stay on television, the soap was at the bottom of ratings, although it was very popular and considered a "cult favorite." The show won numerous awards. In 1993, the show was canceled. 2137 episodes were aired. Although the show didn't have good ratings in America, the popularity of the show in Europe was amazing.moreless

    NBC (ended 1999)
    Sunset Beach, the one-hour daytime drama from Aaron Spelling, premiered January 6, 1997. It was both Spelling's first daytime venture and the first new serial to hit the television airwaves in eight years. The show has already developed a solid fan base that Soap Opera Digest calls "remarkable for a newcomer." Set in a small coastal California community, Sunset Beach has made its mark on daytime television by combining traditional daytime drama storytelling with the natural beauty of Southern California's beach locations and is supported by a talented and ethnically-diverse cast. TV Guide has noted that "Sunset Beach has become a cult hit with growth potential" for the daytime serial viewer. This fact has become particularly true with teen viewers who enjoy Sunset's suspenseful and quirky storylines like "Terror Island," a take-off on the popular Scream movies. Also popular was the recent storyline "Shock Wave," highly publicized earthquakes followed by a treacherous tsunami which caused mayhem at the beach. Sunset Beach also blends real-life news into its storyline, such as the Presidential scandals. Sunset Beach features some of the most recognizable and popular stars on television as well as the hottest newcomers to daytime. They portray core family members and friends living in Sunset Beach who come from all walks of life-rich, poor, heroes, villains, lovers, friends and enemies. Families such as the Richards, the Deschanels, the Torres and the Cummings, are all interwoven, often coming together at the funky blues/rock club, The Deep, or at the cyber coffeehouse, Java Web. They work as police officers, lifeguards, reporters, waiters, lawyers and restaurant owners. Among the more recognizable and popular cast members on Sunset Beach are Lesley Anne Down, Sarah Buxton, Sam Behrens, Kathleen Noone, Eddie Cibrian, Jason George, Sherri Saum, Randy Spelling, Susan Ward, Tim Adams, Carol Potter, Priscilla Garita, Hank Cheyne and Clive Robertson. Sunset Beach is produced by Spelling Entertainment Inc. in association with NBC Studios. Aaron Spelling, E. Duke Vincent and Gary Tomlin are the executive producers. Chris Whitesell and Maggie DePrieste are head writers. James Reilly is executive story consultant. (from NBC Daytime). In summer of 1999 NBC had to finish two of its soap operas and Sunset Beach was one of those two. The show finished its short three year run on December 31 1999 and it aired around 751 episodes.

    Welcome to the The Torkelsons [aka Almost Home] guide at TV.com.

    This show was a comedy about a sensitive 14-year-old girl who's mortified by her crazy-quilt unorthodox family. Dorothy Jane just wanted to be thought of as normal, like any teenager, but had a hard time doing so. Her father had walked out on the family and they were always short on money. Her perky, optimistic mom, Millicent, saw sunshine everywhere. The rest of the family consisted of brothers - athletic Steven Floyd and studious Chuckie Lee, and sisters - spunky Ruth Ann and cute Mary Sue. They lived in a big rambling house in Pyramid Corners, Oklahoma. The name for the show came from a real Steven Floyd Torkelson who shared his bug collection and a first kiss with a little girl named Lynn Montgomery. She grew up to create the show some 30 years later.

    The series, which appeared on NBC, apparently turned out to be too down home for most people as it never found much of an audience in its original Saturday night timeslot and even less of one when it was moved to Sundays. After a second hiatus the series was revamped to return in February 1993 as Almost Home. For the new series the family moved to Seattle, WA [expect for Steven Floyd and Ruth Ann - who were wrote off and never mentioned again], where Millicent took a job as a nanny for two spoiled teenage children of widower Brian Morgan.

    The new season, which mostly pitted conservative family values against liberal family values, did not do any better in the ratings and was cancelled after 13 episodes.

    Season One Theme:

    People say God looks out for the working man Sure hope he's looking out for me These empty pockets need a helping hand Kitchen table's full of family

    But then the sun comes up [sun comes up] And the moon is shining big and bright And the new day promises [promises] That everything will be alright

    And the new day promises that everything will be alright.

    Season Two Theme:

    Just when you think you've settled down And you feel like you're almost home Just when the wheel starts spinnin round Love sneaks in with a plan of it's own

    Love comes in unexpected places Life turns in unexpected ways I swear we'll laugh, at these days [at these days] Love comes in unexpected places Life turns in unexpected ways

    NBC (ended 1991)
    In 1966, the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows premiered on ABC and ran for 5 years, making exactly 1,225 episodes. Today, it is known as one of the most popular cult classics of all time. In 1991, Dan Curtis remade the show as a weekly prime-time drama. NBC bought the series and aired it mid-season 1991. The series wasn't up to NBC's standards in ratings, so the network cancelled the show after only twelve one-hour episodes.

    Dark Shadows: The Revival Series remade most of the beginning storylines and the episodes that transported Victoria Winters back to 1790 (in the original series, Victoria went back to 1795). The series starts with the resurrection of Barnabas Collins, who was released from his coffin by Willie Loomis, the bumbling caretaker on a quest for legendary family riches. Dr. Julia Hoffman attempts to cure his vampirism, and release him from the curse that Angelique Bouchard put on him two hundred years earlier. Later on, Victoria is transported to 1790 during a séance in which the Collins family was trying to contact Barnabas' sister, Sarah, who died in 1790. Trapped in the past, Victoria becomes the governess of Sarah and Daniel Collins, and the governess who was hired to tutor the children, Phyllis Wick, has taken Victoria's place in 1991. Victoria stays in 1790 for a while, and many people accuse her of being a witch for knowledge of the future and many other things. She is put on trial and Peter Bradford (her first friend in 1790 Collinsport) tries to save her from being hanged.moreless

    Molly Dodd is a 30-something, creative woman who makes interesting career choices and struggles with complex relationships with men and with her family. Molly's best friend, Nina Shapiro, also makes appearances here and there. Each episode begins with someone close to Molly commenting on some facet of her personality or her life. Elements of magical realism run throughout the series, for instance, when Molly communicates with the ghost of a relative (to tell who would be a spoiler). Molly has trouble saying "no" to people, like her mysterious cousin Mike from Baltimore who moves in with her and stays longer than he's welcome. Molly eventually seeks therapy but is turned away by her therapist when she falls in love with Molly. Some of the most notable men in Molly's life are her father; her ex-husband Fred, a sax player who keeps returning to toy with her emotions; Davey, the elevator man in her apartment building; Moss Goodman, the owner of a bookstore, who is seriously socially handicapped but charming as all get out (on right in the photo); and Nate Hawthorne, a literate cop with severe allergies (on left in the photo). The show's creator, Jay Tarses, makes occasional appearances as Molly's garbage man, Nick. After the second season, the show moved from NBC to Lifetime.moreless

    "This powerful one-hour family drama from executive producer John Wells (ER) and creator/supervising producer Matthew McNair Carnahan (Black Circle Boys) centers on the McCallisters, a working-class Irish-Catholic family from New York's Hell's Kitchen, whose five young-adult siblings lead contrasting lives and whose fierce loyalties are often pushed to the limit." "Capturing the compelling, poignant reality of familial relationships, the series stars Tate Donovan, Charlotte Ross, Justin Louis, Sam Trammell, Bonnie Root, Kim Raver, John Spencer and Jill Clayburgh." "Bobby (Justin Louis, Public Morals) an intense, ambitious police detective who works the streets of Hell's Kitchen, believes that his brother Liam (Tony Award nominee Sam Trammell, Ah Wilderness), an emerging union leader, works for a boss tied to organized crime. Also, to Bobby's dismay, his wife Clarissa (Kim Raver, Central Park West) maintains a suspiciously close relationship with Liam. Kevin McCallister (Tate Donovan, Warner Bros.' Friends and Hercules), a young parish priest, and the rest of the family concern themselves with the wild, self-destructive behavior of the youngest of the clan, Amanda (Bonnie Root, Home Invasion). Successful stockbroker and older sister Fiona's (Charlotte Ross, Days of Our Lives) long-term affair with her married boss wreaks havoc on her self-esteem. A sixth sibling [Mikey] died under mysterious circumstances years ago." "The tightly knit clan gathers weekly at the home of their parents, Eileen and Simon McCallister, for Sunday dinner -- putting aside conflicts and focusing on the unwavering love that's at the core of this family." (Warner Bros. press release) After four years of giving them huge audiences from that hospital show he helped bring to the small screen, NBC wanted John Wells to give them another rambling ensemble drama along the same lines -- and the same ratings. Wells latched on to a script from indie filmmaker Matthew McNair Carnahan, and chose this as his next project, claiming at the time that it was as different from ER as night and day. Wells also acknowledged that sudsy family dramas like Trinity have hardly ever been instant hits in the past -- as ER was and as NBC wanted -- and that, as a slow-building show, it needed a patient network who would give it time to develop an audience. Seems he momentarily forgot what network he sold it to. Trinity redefined slow-building (actually, it redefined reverse-building), and was yanked off the schedule at the beginning of November sweeps, three weeks after its belated premiere, two weeks after NBC's programming division underwent management changes. NBC stated they would make an announcement on its future by Christmas, but the coffin was sealed pretty much shut when reruns of Law & Order (incidentally, a slow-building show they somehow did manage to let grow) pulled bigger numbers. NBC never did make that announcement, and Warner Bros. stopped production four episodes early. The following season, John Wells took John Spencer, Kim Raver, Skipp Sudduth, Bobby Cannavale and a lot of the production crew with him -- and proved he wasn't a one-hit wonder. Right around the time Trinity dropped off the face of prime time, the programming chief who developed it, Warren Littlefield, was sent on his merry way. In January, 1999, a Littlefield-free NBC saw Trinity's Friday vacancy filled with a sudsy family drama called Providence. Which gave...well, you all know what came of that.
