    Possibly Demi Moore.

    Maeve left GL when Michael Laibson was executive producer in 1996, though she continued to recur on occasion. When Rauch arrived, Maeve returned on a contract basis in 1997 but left again in the summer of 2000. She returned in 2002 for Josh and Reva's latest wedding and was no longer dying her hair.

    From what I saw online, Dwyer Dobbin's exact quote in TV Guide was, "Roger is a powerful, active, sexual, multicolored villain. That's who we need him to be on the GL canvas. We do not need a wizened little old man. And that's what he would have to play in his condition."

    That's really not true. A show having more than one lead Emmy nod has been pretty standard over the years. Many soaps -- including AMC, EON, OLTL, GH, GL, AW, Y&R -- have had more than one actor/actress nominated for a lead Emmy over the years. It was pretty common in the 80s. I remember Sharon Gabet and Ann Flood from EON being nominated for lead actress one year. In 1983, Dorothy Lyman and Susan Lucci (AMC) and Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser (OLTL) were nominated.

    As I recollect, it wasn't a medical leave but a leave of absence that MADD and Rauch forced on him. He asked that his speech problems be written into the show but Rauch refused. A People article from September 1997 said that OLTL asked him to reprise the role of David Renaldi, but he declined because he was in arbitration with GL. At that point, his illness was still undiagnosed.

    Yep. I believe it was in 1986 during Jeff Ryder's brief stint as head writer. He talked about bringing back Hope and also mentioned about introducing Rusty and Sarah Shayne. Within a few weeks, he was out and Mary Ryan Munisteri was hired as head writer.

    Jason hasn't appeared yet. But that's interesting. When Steve mentioned Jason recently, he said he was a doctor living in Texas. In a recent episode, Steve and Carolee were discussing names for the baby and settled on Stephanie. During the conversation, Steve mentioned his mother Mona for the first time.

    I know hardly anyone stays dead on DOOL, but wasn't Janice killed off back in 1988?

    Have to disagree with your description of these "tired old merry-go-round hacks". Sri Rao and Jill Lorie Hurst have hardly gone from soap to soap. Rao helmed GH: Night Shift. One soap. Lorie Hurst was at one soap -- Guiding Light -- for 15 years and didn't become head writer until the final season, and it was a credit she shared with three other scribes. Michele Val Jean is one of the most respected writers in the genre and was head writer for GH for a mere four months before she was kicked to the curb in favor of Megan McTavish.

    I'm confused. What's the purpose of making Mike Bauer a member of the Banning family? And what does John recover from? And it seems anticlimactic, in your scenario, to have Marianne find out her true paternity after John's death.

    Thanks for sharing this. It's pretty cool to watch this again after so many years. According to the Edge website, which is rich in details, the story culminated in March 1976. Apparently, the story wrapped in April. And I don't think this was Louise's last episode. The Edge site states,"Pretending to be Serena one last time, Josie said goodbye to Timmy and was committed to Greenhaven Sanitarium."
     
    And I loved those Y&R clips at the end and how painful Lauralee Bell's acting was back in the 80s.

    Obrecht is no longer chief of staff. Monica replaced her in late April. And I totally disagree about Matt Cohen. I think he's doing a fine job as Griff.

    Exactly why would GH contact Danica Stewart to reprise the role of Maxie? She was universally panned for her portrayal.

    Thanks. The only thing I agree with was their assessment of the Zach/Lea pairing. Otherwise, I disagree completely. I think it was a powerful storyline and bravely tackled the topic of abortion in a time when most soaps cowardly shy away from the subject.

    I gave up on SOD many moons ago, but I'm curious: what was their take on the story and Colby?
