  1. Haven't posted in a while but had to come out for this... lol BIG mistake on so many levels. Not only was Stacy an excellent actress (and easy on the eyes in a girl-next-door kind of way... lol), Hayley had so many connections to the Capwells. As Bridget Dobson once put it, Hayley made Gina vulnerable. And Hayley's death all but ended Todd McKee's run on the show. He drifted along for another year but Ted never really had a good storyline after Hayley passed. I still remember January 11, 1988 vividly. I still get goose bumps with those scenes and they are so hard to watch. Thankful
  2. Ugh. Terrible news. Enjoyed Anthony on Generations and thought he was great on GL. RIP.
  3. I think I found the answer. There were two strikes that year, but the Dark Shadows one didn't happen until October. This is probably the one that affected Days: https://www.questia.com/library/journal/1P3-406233251/anchors-away-huntley-brinkley-and-cronkite-and It all but shut down the TV shows and even the newscasts were affected. When the strike was over, Johnny Carson refused to go back and he staged a walkout for more money.
  4. Actually, I think the problem is a bigger one: Just who IS running this show behind the scenes? Is it Ken Corday? Is it Bruce Evans? Is it Greg Meng? Sony?? I will blame NBC for Reilly. That was a shitstorm from the get-go. I'd like to know what the real plan for that SSK story was, because had Reilly been allowed to continue it Days would have been gone by 2005 or 2006. They were facing whole-scale audience mutiny. I will also blame NBC for slashing the budget so badly we lost Marlena and John for a few years. I'll also blame a few of the former NBC execs no longer in charge of the show. Howe
  5. So great to see this material. So much of SFT pre-1980 is gone, so it's wonderful to hear the theme music.
  6. Paging Sheri Anderson... that is, if she would come back.
  7. I didn't mind the story, but like others have said it was dropped before it really got started (or changed, or whatever).
  8. All of the stuff posted to YouTube has been spectacular. I'm especially loving the 1979 AW with Mac and Rachel constantly fighting. God, that was such good television to watch. And the St. Croix stuff is posted. Look for a thread called Another World March 14-17, 1980. That was a great climax to the Mac/Rachel/Mitch/Janice story.
  9. I was nearly 10 when this show aired and I remember it well! I don't know why... The music played when Olive rails at John was used by Score Productions a lot in the late 1970s on here. There's a particularly trippy nightmare Olive had in 1978 where Brian was going to hang her (don't ask... I don't know what Harding Lemay was on that day)... it's also the music you hear when Janice and Rachel are struggling in the swimming pool in St. Croix. It may have been over the top for Another World, but it was also quite effective.
  10. Yeah, what the hell ever happened there? Did anyone hear why he took it down?
  11. Holy cow! Thanks for this... I swore none of these episodes existed on tape. That was a pure treat to watch.
  12. Part of the problem was some of TPTB at ABC, and maybe a few of the younger people at P&G, wanted Edge to have some of the same "on the run" or younger stories that GH had, in order to hold on to some of GH's audience. The big hole in that way of thinking was many markets didn't air Edge directly after GH at 4:00. I know in our West Michigan market, it was aired at 10:30 on a one-day delay.
  13. Oh Lord. Aug-Sept 1982... the Eden story. One of Edge's worst (but still a lot more bearable than most of what's on today... lol) Lori Loughlin made this story easy to swallow. Very easy on the eyes back then, as she is today. What made this easy to take as well was the Nora Fulton story was next, and that was one of the best stories of the final few years.
  14. Oh, God... that Nicole Cavanaugh death episode was so sad. I remember watching it and thinking "Did they REALLY kill off Nicole?" I had mixed thoughts on Lee. I LOVED Henry Slesar, as pretty much everyone did on this board. Other posters were right about Lee. You knew the difference right away when Lee's scripts began. The scenes were much shorter, there was a lot of cutting, and sometimes one or two days would change in the same episode. That's not really a no-no, but most of the action in an episode should take place in one day's time... I thought Nicole's death story was well done.
