    • This article is from Oct 29, 1975. According to this Margaret DePriest was Headwriter for LOL since late 1974. She took over for Claire Labine And Paul Avila Mayer who had moved to LOL after Where the Heart is was cancelled.     
    • These photos aren't showing up for me -- would love to see them.
    • That's the thing. They don't even need to work "hard" to build up a gap since they produced around eight episodes per week on average. Within two weeks of production they're already over a week ahead.   When they first started with this model to cut costs the point wasn't to get ahead either, it just sort of gradually happened. For them not to get a few months ahead they'd basically need to more "dark" weeks per year and that's just not going to happen for various reasons.
    • I started watching daily during this period because of Maxie. I grew up watching her as Belle on Days and was never a fan. She really blossomed during Maxie's sleazy years despite the misogynistic writing. Maxie and Lulu would have been a great rivalry but it was clear TPTB favored Lulu. I was overjoyed when she finally smacked the hell outta Lulu though. I remember Maxie being so vicious to Felicia at Georgie's funeral that I gasped. I wanted her to win the Emmy that year. I enjoyed that about Storms back then. Maxie would go low and Storms would be right there with her with a smile and a wisecrack. The writing was so, so horrible during that period, but she was wonderful.  
    • Bridget and her mother had a complicated relationship, and she was happy to leave GH when Doris died. She considered her time writing for GH as a "jail sentence" - at least per this interview with a Santa Barbara fansite. This is the portion she talks about GL.   http://pierin26santabarbara.blogspot.com/2012/12/my-exclusive-interview-with-bridget.html
