Yes, soap operas are my guilty pleasure. I am a child of the seventies who used to race home from school to watch the star crossed lovers Philip and Beth on Guiding Light play out their teenage love affair for millions of viewers. Over the years I have jumped around from NBC’s Days Of Our Lives to ABC’s One Life To Live; finally to land on CBS with The Young and The Restless, Bold and the Beautiful and my favorite, As The World Turns. CBS Soaps In Depth provides me with yet another guilty pleasure.
CBS Soaps In Depth is chock full of series recaps, behind the scenes gossip, spoilers and CBS soap star interviews. For a mere three dollars and fifty cents, you can spend an hour or two getting caught up on all your favorite CBS soap opera news and missed episodes. Few of us get to watch every episode every week, and CBS Soaps In Depth reports each week’s major plot points and action.
Some of the features included in CBS Soaps In Depth are “Ins And Outs,” which reports on actors and actresses being added to or leaving CBS soap operas, “Set Your VCR,” which highlights specific plot driving days, and “On The Town,” which is a very fun section that describes outings and special appearances by stars from Guiding Light, As The World Turns and The Young and The Restless. With plenty of information and pictures, this section is a fun look at CBS soap stars when they are not on our television screens.
The “In Depth Preview” section is a wonderfully descriptive section that gives the CBS soap opera fan an inside peek to what’s ahead for their favorite characters. Giving soap opera viewers a little taste of what’s coming is an excellent way to ensure us viewers stay tuned to the antics of our most beloved characters.
Each edition of CBS Soaps In Depth has a featured section in the middle of the magazine that pulls together all the soaps according to certain theme or subject. The September 4, 2007 edition’s subject was “The Worst of Times,” which recapped shocking plots from recent years. There was recaps and pictures from As The World Turn’s serial killer plot from last summer, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Ridge and Bridget’s shocking kiss in 2005, and Phyllis being arrested for extortion at her wedding to Nick from this summer.
CBS Soaps in Depth is a mini magazine with tons of colorful pictures and a plethora of information for the CBS soap fan. Pick up a copy of CBS Soaps In Depth, curl up in your favorite chair with a cup of coffee and spend some time with a fun read that will provide you with all the latest news in the world of CBS soap operas. It will become your second guilty pleasure!
