    Yet Maree looks better than him!
  2. I can't believe they still have live performers during the memorial montage on awards programs.

      @Nothin'ButAttitude Yes, I've just checked and David Canary was included in the primetime Emmy memoriam. The clip they chose was a still from Bonanza.

      Jeanne Cooper was also a pretty prolific character actress on westerns and other drama series from the 50s through the 70s.

      Well Agnes did write the primetime mini-series Manions of America, starring Pierce Brosnan.

  3. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    I follow him on Instagram, and like I stated a few weeks ago in a status update - I can NOT believe he is just a few years from 40.

    Much love to Eileen Fulton, and I trust she is doing well! She used to have a regularly updated website with a blog, but that folded not long before ATWT left the air.
  5. AMC Tribute Thread

    I think the work they did with Erica and Mark really stemmed from the fact that Erica needed someone other than Mona in her life to bounce her quirks off of and also a male figure who wasn't a potential love interest, a "guy" for her to be close to without the inevitable paring up. It's usually a pet peeve of mine when they write a long-lost sibling in as if they'd always been around, but it just made sense and worked with Mark. The best thing they could have done for Mark that they didn't do was make Josh his son.
  6. AMC Tribute Thread

    I've been pretty steadily making my way through HamiltonBernique's uploads, all of which are new to me, so my AMC urges are satisfied regularly. I've gone through some pretty big life changes recently, so being able to get back into AMC and discover some of its best years has been an invaluable coping tool. I love, love, love our show, man. I'll be 80 years old, and they'll still be on my mind. I think I established a few years ago that I truly believe Mark to be AMC's most attractive male star, period. He and SuLu were just SO gorgeous together, and yes, they matched each other so well as siblings. I would give my left leg to fully watch their heyday as PV's hot youngsters in the late 70s. Those pics from the disco say it all.
  7. AMC Tribute Thread

    Susan has posted on her Instagram account that Mark La Mura (Mark Dalton) has died. I'm not seeing it anywhere else, but her post is pretty recent (45 minutes ago), so I would assume we'll see more tomorrow. I'm very saddened by this - Mark, to me, embodied a lot of what made AMC such a fun, lively, and successful soap in the late 70s and early 80s, and of course, there were the more dramatic storylines written for the character later on. I'm very thankful Megan McTavish brought the character and actor back several times in her last stint.
  8. According to Susan Lucci's Instagram account, AMC's Mark La Mura has passed away. RIP.

      Whoa, I googled him and a half naked picture of him came up. Maye he rest in peace.

      She posted the most glorious photo of them. RIP.

      My IG feed is practically all Susan Lucci and Joan Collins, lol, warms my heart to see them daily.

  11. Degrassi: The Next Generation

    I'm rewatching the series from the beginning, and I'm more than halfway through season two, and I really, really, really feel bad for dismissing this season so much over the last 10 or so years. It's such a nice transition between the naivete of season one and the magnificent, pot-boiling melodrama of three, four, and five. There are several key episodes including "Careless Whisper," "Take My Breath Away," and the two-parters "Shout," "When Doves Cry," and "White Wedding." It's like the characters were still young, but the stories grew up a bit, and it's just very enjoyable. I completely forgot that they'd done an episode of Marco questioning his sexuality prior to the "Pride" 2-parter in season 3, and it was pretty well-done. That heartbreaking ending to "Take My Breath Away" with Craig telling Manny that he doesn't like her is one of those classic moments, and so, so delicious when you know how much drama they're going to have with each other later on. Toby had so much to do this season, and it's a shame they gave up on the character later. He could have brought in some good stories that were different from the rest of the show's pace.

  13. Antenna TV Thread

    I wish! MeTV brings Cannon and the Fugitive back every now and then, and they've shown Streets of San Francisco in the past, so I'm not sure why they've never given Barnaby a go. I really do think they're daytime lineup works best as a mix of the westerns, medical, and crime/mystery series, but it's time for a bit of a shake-up, at least for the westerns. Even if they were simply moving a weekend western to weekdays (which they will be doing next week with Wagon Train). I LOVE Gunsmoke. I could literally watch it all day. The fact that, through all of TVLand's attempts to be hip, it remains an integral part of the lineup, not only airing daily but airing MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY - it blows my mind. I appreciate the fact that MeTV has gone to airing the black and white episodes during the week, but I think they'd do well to cut it down to one airing a day, paired with a Rifleman. Free up the hour before that for another crime/action/mystery in the morning, and then add in a block of family dramas or even primetime soaps to take you through the late afternoon. Something like this: 8:00AM: BEN CASEY 9:00AM: MARCUS WELBY, M. D. 10:00AM: BARNABY JONES 11:00AM: HAWAII FIVE-O 12:00PM: GUNSMOKE 12:30PM: THE RIFLEMAN 1:00PM: WAGON TRAIN 2:00PM: RAWHIDE 3:00PM: DYNASTY 4:00PM: T. J. HOOKER 5:00PM: ST. ELSEWHERE Then I'd make everything after that through midnight sitcoms.

    Thank you for being the light in this "Dark." ass tunnel! I was finished at "I don't like you."

    I'm watching TJ Hooker on Me-TV right now, and it looks like it's uncut? The commercial breaks are very short.
  16. But god forbid they release Flamingo Road or another goddamn season of Knots Landing

      Last night I was on here thinking about how much my life has changed since I joined.  Like, what was I doing, or really, NOT doing that I had so much time to post!?  Of course, if AMC and OLTL were still on, I'm sure I'd still find a way...

      Same! I just have so much less to say now that they're gone.

  18. AMC Tribute Thread

    I never thought I'd enjoy the stuff with Erica on her own - not because it's Erica on her own but because I never really understood why they would isolate her the way they did, but after actually watching so much of it, it made so much sense and had a lot to do with her becoming the legendary character she became. She was sooooo much more than podunk ol' PV ever could handle. She was the big glamorous stahhh, and it made her coming home that much juicier because of the development she went through while away. She would've never become that character had she always stayed in town.
  19. Licensed music and daytime soap operas

    Maybe upset is an overstatement, but there were at least a few posters here who questioned it and said that it was an example of them trying too hard for false emotion.
  20. Licensed music and daytime soap operas

    ATWT was still using licensed music (albeit older hit songs) in its last year. In fact, the very last scene is set to the score of Prince of Tides, which is why you can find clips of the scene online that use different music. Many people were upset because the actual ATWT from the 70s would have worked just as well at setting the particular tone they were going for. Re: Bless the Beasts and Children. The Carpenters recorded a pretty successful version of it around the same time Nadia's Theme became Nadia's Theme. It was originally "Cotton's Dream" in reference to the scene in which it played in the movie BTBAC. AMC used the opening phrase of Pino Donaggio's theme from Carrie in a 1987 episode.

  23. Antenna TV Thread

    I really like the early episodes with the Lucy, Viv, and their kids. I watched a good bit of the Lucy & Mr. Mooney episodes in syndication growing up and also via public domain DVD releases, but they feel more like cartoons than an actual sitcom now. I hope ME starts with the beginning, but even if they don't, I can just continue to watch them on Hulu. Apparently Antenna will give their primetime the Block Party Summer treatment starting next week and going through Labor Day (so, what, two weeks?) with Family Ties on Mondays, All in the Family on Tuesdays, One Day at a Time on Wednesdays, Good Times on Thursdays, and Maude on Fridays. Shocked that FT and ODAAT are there and not the Jeffersons and Sanford and Son.
  24. Antenna TV Thread

    To me, it's criminal that ILL hasn't been regularly scheduled in primetime for a long, long time. I know that for the longest time, it was one of the most-played shows, but it's really been low-key for the last 10-15 years. I think it hit a peak with its 50th anniversary back in 2001 and has quietly blended in with everything else since then. If I could fix their primetime, I'd do the Bradys, Andy, Lucy, and Mary, then an hour of Happy Days. I like the idea of the last part being an hour block of one show, but it's been HH for far too long. I'd even consider making it Beverly Hillbillies. I mean, if I REALLY could have my way, Donna Reed, My Three Sons, and Petticoat Junction would air for an hour each in the afternoons.
  25. Antenna TV Thread

    Slightly bigger changes for ME-TV in September. The daily western block is extended by an hour with Wagon Train joining the afternoon schedule, effectively ending the afternoon sitcom block. ALF leaves and is replaced in primetime by Happy Days, which I'm not too sad about. Still wondering why/how Hogan's Heroes continues to take up a beautiful hour-long slot five nights a week, but whatever. Mama's Family must be doing well because it gets an hour on Sunday afternoons, along with The Facts of Life. Touched by an Angel joins the Sunday schedule, unnecessarily airing as bookends around the usual Columbo. The Lucy Show also joins the Sunday sitcom block. Sunday late nights has The Untouchables, The Fugitive, and Peter Gunn coming back along with new arrival Highway Patrol. All at time slots that are completely and totally inaccessible for casual viewers. Whatever happened to the days when overnight slots were strictly for repeats of shows that aired during the day? Why do they insist on basically running a full slate of shows ONLY in late night and early morning?
