Did you guys notice this bit when Mike was in the park some episodes back? It was when he met up with the little girl. He was sitting on the bench, bouncing her ball, and singing in a rhyming manner. He said, "M, my name is Michael and I'm come from Madison." Coincidence or the first on air-reference to the city's name?
Yeah, that just makes perfect sense. Make a newbie character the lead of a show that's been on the air for 52 years. After all, it worked so well before with Jensen Buchanan, Michelle Stafford, and Teresa Castillo.
Actually, Steve did talk about his brother, but it wasn't Jason. There was a scene in 1968 where Steve and Karen began talking about war. Steve mentioned then that he had an older brother who was killed during the bombing of Berlin if I recall correctly.
No, it's not just you. I'm still catching up but cringed during some of his performances the other day. He seems so out of place in juxtaposition to the other actors' styles. I hope Nancy runs off with Shana and leaves bellowing Paul and petulant Mike in the dust.
It was around February 1984 when SOD announced it. The story about Donna and the men's club was the only one I recall. According to the Another World Home Page, she wrote for the show from 1984 to 1985 during the Gary Tomlin/RIchard Culliton era.
Anyone have the scoop on Linda Elstad, who wrote for Another World in the mid-80s? I remember Soap Opera Digest announcing in early 1984 that Elstad had been appointed head writer. Elstad previewed her plans a bit in Soap Opera Digest. I recall her saying that one of her big stories involved Donna Love who was going to cause a commotion by joining some kind of an all-men's club in Bay City. That story never materialized, and Elstad never became head writer.
