    Y&R: Old Articles

    From the July 28, 1987 Digest (S. O. D. Publishing Inc.), photos from the show's 14th anniversary party.
  2. Watched the Oscar announcement out of boring (boring noms too). Kumail Nanjiani is so cute, isn't he? I was going to watch The Big Sick until I saw that it was from the wretched Judd Apatow.

      He's going to be doing a RomCom with Issa Rae so hopefully that'll be worth watching.

      Oh good. I hope it does well.

    Dallas: Discussion Thread

    Thanks. I never watched closely enough to remember most of the Ewing Oil employees.

    The Politics Thread

    The media is in full cleanup/damage control mode for those Kentucky boys and their hate school, so stories like this will never be told outside of Twitter. They still break your heart.

    Dallas: Discussion Thread

    Was that secretary ever actually on Dallas?

    When was the material with Daryl and Frannie on the ski lift? Was that around Labor Day 1992? That was an epic cliffhanger.

    Dark Shadows

    Ian McShane? How random. Money talks, I guess.

    They were also kind not to mention his DWI... I don't believe so.

    AMC Tribute Thread

    He was the only Scott I liked. Cosgrove was mostly just wooden, and the only real memory I have of Mayfield is the time that certain attention-seeking site writers kept stirring up stories about his package. This pretty much shows why people are lazy and stupid if they base their article off IMDB: McDermott would go on to act in the soap opera "All My Children" for five episodes in 1995 and 1996.
  10. I know a lot of this is already out there, but since I was mostly posting old articles in the cancelled soaps section I thought I might start posting some stuff on the current soaps here, just under different threads for each soap. If you're interested in this, let me know, and I'll post more, or someone who has a lot of good stuff can post more. This is from the July 1976 Afternoon TV Stars. Lorelei Publishing Inc

    @I Am A Swede I thought you might like this.

    "Secret Storm" memories.

    The closing credits looked beautiful. I'd love to see them in color. The only color ones I've seen reminded me of Dark Shadows.

    "Secret Storm" memories.

    Thank you for finding this. What a treat! When I saw the thread had new posts I was hoping but never thought there'd be something like this. I don't think @amybrickwallace posts here now but I know she was a fan of Nic Coster's. Doesn't he have a Facebook? I wonder if he knows about this. I think when I watched one of the other episodes from this era I remember feeling the dialogue was very literate and the performances were crisp - that's still the case here. It was a good watch. I hated to see it end. I realize the show was going through bad changes at this time, but it still feels like they are treating viewers with respect. Lori March is such a fascinating actress, isn't she? I love watching her work. Stephen Bolster looks so handsome here. I wonder why he didn't work out as Jerry. Laurence Luckinbill is one of those 'new breed' of soap leading men - there's something so tense and extremely sexual about him (especially in the scene with Susan). Yet he isn't quite a fit for soaps either. I can see why he left for greener pastures. I'll probably always just remember him for Boys in the Band (he and his boyfriend were probably one of my first gay OTPs, and a number of their issues are still very resonant today).

    Oh I hadn't even thought of that. So many possibilities. I guess it's just left to the world of fan fiction, sadly...

    As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Iva seemed to lose so much spark in the early '90s and it seemed like she became a much older character. A great deal of the early Aaron story is fascinating to watch and it truly does test so many bonds - it also drives a stake through the heart of the Lily/Iva relationship in the most brilliant way - but I feel like if they wanted to give Iva a baby to somehow "make up" for her losing Aaron, it should have been from Kirk or from a brief fling with a guest character. The wrapup of the story, with Holden getting Aaron back and clearly not even wanting to raise him, is what always upset me most. It really, really pissed me off at the time and it made me loathe the character for years.

    I still think this whole thing was a mistake, and the Iva/John relationship was a mistake in general. The Snyders were a very trashy family but when you have two relatively sheltered and reserved women also sharing a man that's when the family began to really head into overkill soap opera territory. That's good to know about the actress who played Hal's sister. I agree we should have seen her again. I know she probably wouldn't have done it but I would have enjoyed seeing Parker Posey pop up as Tess at the end. Maybe she could have jeered some personality back into Cady's Rosanna...
