Santa Barbara, USA

Here is another official card from the ones that i received recently...from the US of course...


US-336090

Wasnt there a soap opera called Santa Barbara?? I know there was Beverly Hills and Melrose Place...but for some reason i keep thinking there was one called Santa Barbara as well...probably i hadnt watched it since i cant remember it...i did watch Beverly Hills though...i was in those years, when a series like that was just something i had to watch and felt thrilled about it...i still think that compared to its followers, BH was like the best of them...whenever there is something that becomes a success, directors just hunt for something alike, coz they think that they have the magic ingredients for the success and just want to multiply it and multiply it an multiply it...but those followers never really reach the popularity of the predecessors...and they tend to repeat themselves...and the point is just lost
though i think that no soap operas can match the Spanish/Latin American ones...now THAT is a phenomenon...ive watched only one...probably coz it was somewhat outstanding (wont reveal which one) and i know that afterwards they tried to make similar to that one in particular and i wanted to watch them but i got annoyed at the very start coz it just wasnt it...sometimes i do leave the channel on if there is one and im in the room...and i just listen to the Spanish...to acquire the accent...and try to see if i am able to understand...and maybe learn something new...

Sometimes i wonder how i so much manage to deviate with my writings with whats on the card actually....

Oh, Santa Barbara!! It was one of the first soap operas which were shown in Russia at the beginning of the 90th, so we all watched it! Yeah...I had a dream to go there and meet the characters :) I thought they lived there, haha.

so i wasnt hallucinating, there was one indeed?!
well, i could have googled about it, but i thought it would ruin the feeling....and i always thought the characters in those soap operas actually lived there and owned the cars and the clothes they had in the series and went to those particular schools etc etc...

btw, thank you once again, for you know what :)
