  1. Okay, Ryan's Hope is losing me. I don't like Barry Ryan - I don't understand his purpose on the show. He's a cad. He's a pretty rotten human being - just look at how he treated his ex wife! Why are we, as the audience, expected to care about him? Just because he's a Chicago Ryan? Even the New York Ryans don't like him! Please get him off my screen. Ken George Jones - again - what is the purpose? Frank and Jill have NEVER BEEN HAPPY TOGETHER! It's been 5 years. Why can't the writers actually let them be happy and get married? It's too long. I have now officially given up on Frank and Jill. I used to like Jill but going to bed with KGJ so quickly??? I just don't understand that. I can understand being completely enamored with him - he's a singer. We all fall in love with singers/actors, etc. especially when we see them work. But she used to be a rational woman. Jill sleeping with KGJ yet still expecting to marry Frank? What are these writers doing? Were other people annoyed at this point? Does anyone know the history of what was going on with the writers? with ABC? This is just ridiculous. I am not enjoying the summer of 1980.
  2. Thanks! That's the episode I just watched on Friday and led me here to ask the question. I don't have a single memory of anything happening on that set. At least not yet. I'm hoping at some point, I have a flashback realization!
  3. Thanks to you both! I can't believe I don't remember Cafe Paradise. I mean nothing. Not the name. Not the set. '89-'93??? Wow. I've clearly killed a lot of brain cells over the intervening years.
  4. Another question - I just started what I can find of January 1989. Mary's Place has burned down (I have no memory of that from my teenage years - although I know Mary & Vince leave in '89) and Ada seems to be working in a new restaurant and expecting an old flame to come back to town? My impression from today's episode ("Up In Smoke" is how it is labeled on YouTube) is that Ada is running/owner of this new place? Does this ring any bells with anyone?
  5. Thanks so much for that!!!
  6. Wow. Am watching 1987 right now - and I have no idea who those people are in this promo. And that generic promo guy - oof - super OTT
  7. Thanks! I actually saw that last year when they posted it - it's what originally caused me to search for HiH. I can't believe I've been listening to it for a year - I listen every morning while I walk the dogs.
  8. Hmmmm. Alright - I'll have to give that one a go once I finish Hearts In Harmony (or give up on Aunt Mary) Thanks!
  9. OMG - The Snowflake Ball!!!! I just got to the first episode. I loved loved LOVED this when I was a teenager. I would look forward to it every year (I don't know how many they ended up doing - in my mind, it was a yearly tradition - does anyone remember how many years it continued?) I must say, I'm loving it as an adult as well. Love the black and white theme. Sharlene and Felicia look particularly stunning, imo. It's wonderful seeing a soft side of Iris, paying for Josie's dress and making Josie's entrance to the ball into such a grand occasion. Maybe Iris was just doing it because she knew it would piss off Rachel, but I'd like to think even Iris still believed in young love. I'm so excited to get to the Donna Swajeski years. Both as a teenager, and as an adult, I have enjoyed '87 and '88. But '89 and Swajeski's tenure was where I became obsessed with Another World. Loved everything about it. I hope I still find it enjoyable now that I'm older. Paulina, and Lucas, and Jenna and Dean, and Lorna, Anne Heche in her prime as Vicky/Marley, Grant, Ryan, FRANKIE!!!! Oh, I can't wait. From a medium sized attempt at seeing what exists on YouTube, it looks as pretty much all of '91 and '92 exist? I'm going to try to get though what exists of '89 and '90 by the end of the year so I can watch '91-'92 daily as the years progress. I've doing the same with Ryan's Hope for the past 5 years (I never watched it on original airing or any of the soap net reruns) and it's been working nicely. It's like I have (good) daily soaps again! Thank God for YT.
  10. @slick jones Thanks for even that little bit! I really enjoy that show. Another one that people seem to talk about is One Man's Family? Something like that. I might seek that one out as well. Gonna try to give Aunt Mary another month or two.
  11. That's hilarious. LOVE IT!!
  12. I have been listening to a radio soap for almost a year now - Hearts In Harmony - and I absolutely love it. I'm just over half way through the episodes that exist. Does anyone know where I can find any info on HIH? I've done an internet search and can't really find anything. I'm fascinated to know more about the serial. When I first started listening, the characters would sing a song at the piano every other episode and then one day I realized it hadn't happened for several weeks - and it never happened again. Why did they change the format? How many years did the show run? Questions, questions, questions. I've also started listening to Aunt Mary but I don't enjoy it nearly as much. I'm having a very hard time becoming involved in the story. Anyway, should anyone have a tip on how to find more info, I'd appreciate the help!
  13. Just watched the lone episode from February 1987 - oh em gee. I found out what Lansing was using to blackmail Dr. Dixon - wow. Ok, that all makes sense. Way to go, Doug M. I also found out that James has kidnapped Paul and Emily - well, at least Paul. Emily didn't seem too concerned in the quick scene we saw her in James' plane. I'm so glad someone had that one random episode - it explained pretty much everything! Oh, and Bob and Kim, Action Stars! AGAIN!! (Running to the church) I love it.
  14. He's a mighty gay man! I think they may be the gayest promo I've ever seen from ATWT. Loving MC as MK as I do, I am not looking forward to getting to the 90's and seeing a different Mike, not to mention a different Rosanna!!
  15. Thanks for that info! I loved her as Josie when I was in high school but I'm on the fence now that I'm an adult. I'm finding that to be the case A LOT as I re watch AW - teenage characters that I liked as a teenager but now, as an adult, not so much. I think that probably means the teenagers are written really well - teenagers should identify with them, and adults should be driven crazy by their stupid teenage antics! Lily is a good case in point - she's such a whiny crybaby!! But I suppose, if I were a teenager, I would completely understand why she reacts the way she does. And, I think I've said it before, but it's a nice change from the too-clever, pop culture spouting teens we get today. That's fantastic! I can't wait to see them play out over the next few years. I love Emma Snyder so.
