I think you had the right idea the first time. I think acting was better back then (although Jack Wagner was as annoying as I remembered), but the writing was still poor. The stories seemed aimless - wasn't this the Thomas/Amber story that was truncated because of Janet Jackson's nipple? (and wasn't he also magically aged to 18 after that controversy) I think they were also going to do some story with Eric and Caitlin that was killed.
I can't remember but I think Colleen Dion didn't want to stay around long-term because she had a family and maybe she didn't live on the West Coast? As it turns out given how rarely we see Felicia they may as well have kept her.
I'd forgotten Sean Kanan still looked that good in 2004. He'd barely aged from his GH days.
Gosh, back then I thought those years were godawful. In retrospect, the show was decent compared to what it is now!
Why was the original Felicia recast? She looked fine. They have cemented LK in the role, even though it is extremely recurring.
Totally disagree. Koslow is a great beauty. At 64 she has lost none of her appeal. And she is a skilled actress.
Kate is not a played out character. She has not been written properly for in years but Koslow makes the most of the scenes she's given.
