What can one say about the formidable Nelson Branco? He's the full package -- intelligent, sexy, irreverent and an honest journalist among a sea of sharks. Having been a devoted fan since his days with TV Guide, it's a pleasure to find a publication worth every penny! For soap opera fans, this is the "Reader's Digest" of soap opera. Not filled with pictures, you get articles, thoughts and scoops! Branco doesn't powder articles with sugar -- he delivers in the way he lives -- it's an open book!

For fans of Soap Opera Digest back in the days when it was relevant, you'll find Nelson Branco's Soap Opera: Uncensored a welcome change to what we've bee getting over the last decade from mainstream soap media -- and at HALF the price!
