Steamboat: Most Loved Soap.
“Today’s Episode of Steamboat is Brought To You By Lactene for milky hair. It’s Not Silky, It’s Milky, With Lactene.”

This is the phrase that ends episode one and begins every episode thereafter of the most talked about, new online soap “Steamboat”, which was created by Michael O’Leary (ex-Rick Bauer, GL) with help from Scott Bryce (ex-Craig Montgomery, ATWT and ex-Dr. Crosby, OLTL).

It’s described as a medium between All My Children and The Office, and it is great.

The show is about the behind-the-scenes of a failing soap called “Steamboat.”

It features popular soap actors like Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva Lewis, GL; Rhonda), Justin Deas (ex-Buzz Cooper, GL; Scott), Orlagh Cassidy (ex-Doris Wolfe, GL; Gwen), Michael Park (Jack Snyder, ATWT; Dirk), newcomer Jacquelina DeMarco (Candy), Kurt McKinney (ex-Matt Reardon, GL; Ellis, ATWT; Daniel), Beth Chamberlin (ex-Beth Spaulding, GL; Tabitha), and Michael O’Leary (Michael).

With this stellar cast, no wonder “Steamboat” has many fans and followers.

They already have five episodes online, but don’t fret – they’re only a few minutes each. It won’t take long to catch up.

We have everyone who is trying to get their Emmy, mixed in with the show failing miserably. This satirical web series is available on YouTube, and has finished taping the first season.

I don’t watch the other web series that are out there. Not because I don’t like the actors and actresses, or anything, but I just don’t get the appeal.

But “Steamboat” isn’t like the others.

It’s comedic, featuring great writing and great delivery by a top notch cast.

Take a look at episode one.

It’s a very entertaining series end everyone who loves soaps should watch it.

And remamber: It’s not silky, it’s milky. With Lactene.

    Anything that the actors from Guiding Light touches turns to gold–too bad CBS didn’t see that in order to keep the show on the air. History was taken from us and television when they axed the oldest show on television.
