TV Santa Barbara

In my opinion, Santa Barbara was the best American soap opera of all time, perhaps the best soap in world history. Wonderfully written and directed with superb acting from an amazing cast of extremely talented and dedicated actors, the show was a model on how to make a daytime drama. Although it was a hit around the world, the ratings were not up to snuff here in the US, and unfortunately, the show was cancelled in the early 1990s. I found some great clips of the show over at You Tube and was thrilled that someone had taken the time to post them, converted from video tape! If you were a fan of the show, you can check them out here:

Fun fact: Santa Barbara almost DIDN'T get cancelled in 1993. NBC had also considered cancelling Another World, but wound up giving the latter what would turn out to be it's final six-year renewal.

I didn't know this bit of trivia, Seth... Seeing that they ended up cancelling Another World a few years later, I wish Santa Barbara could have lived on for a bit longer...

Both shows were great and should have been kept on the air. How Passions continues to get renewed each year surprises the heck out of me.

NBC never should of cancelled Santa Barbara. Should of kept both Another World AND Santa Barbara, and they would have a stellar three soap lineup. ANd hell, if they wanted to, they could of still debuted Sunset Beach or Passions, but as a half hour show.

I miss Santa Barbara also! It was the best soap ever and so far ahead of it's time. Are there any Mason/Julia fans here?

Well I am not a Mason or Julia fan but I am a big Edan and Cruz fan. They were the reason I even watched that soap. That and As the World Turns were the first soap operas I ever watched. Thanks to my mom for tapping some Santa Brabra eps I can still watch. You know even though soap operas have tones of episodes they should put them out on DVD.

I really loved Lionel and Agusta... they were such a hoot. And who could forget Lionel's mother, Minx, played by the amazing Dame Judith Anderson? I loved the running feud between the Lockridge's and the Capwells!

My girlfriend at the time loved Santa Barbara and I watched it with her.
Some pretty funky stuff on that show. I remember Mason making it in an ambulance with Gina (I think it was her). I also remember hating Kirk Cranston and Dylan- both foils to Cruz and Jake for the affection of Eden and Kelly. Wow, what a dork I am.

I actually have one episode of Santa Barbara, original broadcast from 1985 or 1986, on tape somewhere.

I gotta watch that.

I wish I could find more episodes of it. They are really hard to come by. I have some but most of mine are from what friends have given me. You sure were lucky to keep yours. Cruz and Eden are ok. I liked Cruz's friendship with Julia. What episodes do you have? I'm just curious.

Well the tape my mom taped on has different eps they don't go in order.
One of the eps is where Eden starts becoming possesed by the devil. Another one is where Cruz and Eden are on a trip and there car breaks down. One where Eden climbs the Mt. to take a picture and falls off. and I think the last one I think there might be more eps on there but i can't remember them all but the last one I can remember is when Cruz sees Eden after she looses her memory and Eden thinks she is someone else and tires to get cruse to think that is who she is but Cruz tries to get her to Remember she really is Eden.

No it was a split personality as a result from reliving memories of Sophia and Lionel's affair.

It was a split personality I didn't know that I thought she was possesed due to the fact every so often her eyes would turn red and she heard voices in her head talking to her. I know thats what happened with Marlena when they had her possesed, but I could be wrong since I can't remember how Eden got that way.
