  1. AMC Tribute Thread

    I'm currently making my way through the big compilation of episodes/scenes from 1985 centering on Zach Grayson's murder and Erica/Adam working at Tempo, and as much as I'm loving my nightly visits to PV, how awful that they had to tell this story with the terrible Nina recast and, though I know he's done better work elsewhere, poor Hugo Napier as Mike Roy. They just don't fit. Meanwhile, does it really get any better than Palmer and Daisy scenes highlighted with that slow, dopey version of Bicycle Built for Two?
  2. Soap Hoppers

    I don't know how or when it started, but Flamingo Road's Constance was never married to Titus Semple. Her full name should be just Constance Weldon Carlyle.
  3. AMC Tribute Thread

    Ellen and Mark married and left Pine Valley in 1989.
  4. Stars who didn't conquer TV

    I vaguely remember watching The Jimmy Stewart Show in reruns on a channel that I'm sure no longer exists. It wasn't bad if extremely gentle early 70s family fare is your thing.
  5. Stars that managed to have 2 (or more) hit series

    For real! I glanced at her filmography, and I didn't even include the shorter-lived programs. All of the ones listed lasted at least two seasons, and she wasn't just a recurring character on any of them. Telma works!

  8. Stars unable to have lightening strike twice

    Michael Landon did nearly 30 years, non-stop, of primetime TV via Bonanza, LHOTP, and Highway to Heaven (taking a season off between each). Even when he wasn't a regular on Little House: A New Beginning, it was still firmly his show by then.
  9. Stars unable to have lightening strike twice

    I feel as though most TV stars can fall into this category. There are more than a few who found success on multiple series, but so many people are associated with just one role, or maybe one long-running, high profile role and one role not as well-known but still mildly successful.
  10. MeTV

    ELL OH ELL I used to prefer Me to Antenna, but not anymore, and it all comes down to MeTV's refusal to make real changes. I appreciate consistency, but this is just ridiculous.
  11. "Roseanne" revival

    That was my first thought. They're flitting around just like young DJ, Darlene, and Becky in the very first opening sequence. These people have always felt like a real family, and they still do.
  12. Y&R: Old Articles

    I LOVE the 90s Y&R soundtrack album. My older cousin had it on CD way back when and would play it while she cleaned around the house whenever she was babysitting elementary school-aged AMS. I ripped a good bit of them from YouTube and play them when I want to give my students some quiet time to work in class. In watching 90s episodes online, I was disappointed to see that some of the tunes I've gotten so close to ("Aloneness," "Peaceful," "Look at Me," "Sueno," etc) were never really in heavy rotation. It's very soapy music, fit for daytime.
  13. Netflix: One Day at a Time

    Making my way through the latter end of S2, and "Hello, Penelope" is fantastic. Schneider receives some much-needed humanization, and Justina Machado proves that she's a classic Norman Lear star. I'm willing to bet that she would have been wonderful in soaps. Oh, and Max is a lovely romantic interest! He's handsome, sexy, funny, romantic, and just a good man. The only weak spot this season, and I hate to say it, is Alex. The actor seems checked out 90% of the time.
  14. Characters that survived multiple recasts

    Many of AMC's original characters went through several recasts until TPTB found the right matches. Ruth Warrick and Hugh Franklin played opposite a menagerie of people playing their children and grandchildren the first couple of years.
  15. Shows You Are Sick Of In Reruns

    I do appreciate the fact that should-be dinosaurs like Gunsmoke and Bonanza are still pulling in audiences 50 years after their heyday. Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Full House, etc. all definitely belong.
