I had a rough go of it buying Greenlee at first. RB as Michelle on GL was still fresh on my mind. I think RB has the most beautiful big brown eyes, but I can't say that I ever cared for or about Greenlee. Or Kendall for that matter post-SMG. TBH, I don't think I cared about any character created after 1995.
Merlene vacuuming that square inch of carpet, I'm done. Clearly, she was very attractive in her youth as she's still a good-looking woman. When she got all done up at the end, I thought she looked like Kathryn Hays or Julie Adams. Married to a Lear, she could've aged into your typical socialite. Instead, dude left her and she lost her damn mind. (Though I'm guessing she probably had issues before then.)
A generalization, sure, but it's interesting how long hair seems to age men while short hair seems to age women. Years of watching OLTL and AMC in particular, I noticed how the longer hair pulled down young men's faces while the shorter cuts looked fresh/squeaky/youthful. DF, JPL, JY come to mind...
I loved RS's bountiful auburn weave of the early '90s. She and SL both went shorter that decade, and while they were still beautiful, I think "bigger" hair always looked better on them, like JW mentioned above.
Jane Elliott, Linda Dano, and Louise Sorel sure rocked the hell out of Sassoon cuts. Gillian Spencer, Jennifer Bassey too...
I can't bring myself to watch this marathon. It just makes me too sad. Good Times it is. Mr. Harrington was incredibly talented, and I particularly enjoyed his contributions to ODAAT reunion programs. He was so great and convincing as Schneider, I wonder if you all remember his Trak Auto commercials that ran for some years. He guest starred on The Golden Girls and I must have seen that episode four times before I realized that was "Schneider".
I haven't watched today's episode yet, but I got a flash of OLTL yesterday... the knowing looks and soda sips from those two boys when Theo was talking about being bullied reminded me of Jack and Shane.
Ha, I see what you mean about the pants. The studio audience reactions, that was just a joke for that scene, they don't do that all the time, thankfully. Yeah, Amanda and her facial expressions got some attention last year for a CNN segment about catcalling. She was a VJ/talking head for MTV/VH1, and when she was a kid in Orlando, she was on that Nickelodeon show, My Brother and Me (and the cinema classic, Cop and a Half starring Mr. Burt Reynolds).
