  1. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Liz Hubbard's characters sure had it bad for brilliant yet grouchy doctors (see also: The Doctors). ?

    I don't think so because pretty much all of them are gone, and the four that are left are lost causes. ??

    I can see that, because that was when the show was at its peak. I didn't start watching until "Faces" served as the opening.

    Those were the days when the Emmys were worth watching!!!
  5. Santa Barbara Discussion Thread

    It's been awhile since I've seen the early 1985 episodes, but to my recollection the two sisters were not close when Julia came to town. They hadn't seen each other in years. In fact, Lionel and Warren didn’t even recognize Julia at first because she had been very fat the last time they'd seen her. ??

    It's stories like this that really break my heart. It's sickening that the likes of Allen and Polanski are still working and not in jail. https://pagesix.com/2018/01/18/dylan-farrow-on-woody-allens-alleged-sexual-abuse-i-loved-my-father/

    On another note, are he and Marcia McCabe still together? I've gotten the occasional form letter from her to the "Sunny fans" - and while she goes on and on about her grown kids, she doesn't mention Mr. Goutman.

    Barbara mentioned that she had plans to focus the show more around the hospital and also add more traditional romance (Matt and Maggie would have remarried AND stayed so for good, for example). Hillary Bailey (now Smith) had caught on with the audience and plans were underway to cast an actor to play her brother. The one they chose was none other than Hillary's future OLTL co-star, Roscoe Born, not long after his run on RH. However, the cancellation was handed down almost immediately thereafter, so he never made it to air. The grave-robbing, the plague, the anti-aging serum and the plot against smoking were all stories NBC wanted, according to Barbara. She said everyone on the show, in front of and behind the camera, gave all they could but morale was so low due to lack of support from the network. The end was in sight and they all knew it, but it didn't stop them from working as hard as they could. Today, Barbara Morgenroth is a novelist and has been so for many years. She says it is very freeing to write the stories and characters the way she likes without interference from anyone else.

    You're welcome!! You can see him getting up to accept his award towards the end of this clip (at about the 4:15 mark):

    He won an Emmy for his role on Loving. Not only that, but he was the only cast member in the 12-year run of the show to win an Emmy.
  12. Favorite TV Themes/Openings

    Does anyone else remember the 1993 sitcom Phenom? All these years later, I still vividly remember the theme song "The Promise and the Prize", written and performed by Carly Simon:

    Did anyone else see Ann Curry's interview yesterday? I think she said a lot without saying a lot, if you know what I mean. https://www.google.com/amp/variety.com/2018/tv/news/ann-curry-tv-interview-cbs-this-morning-matt-later-sexual-harassment-1202666811/amp/
  14. The Doctors

    I've had contact with Barbara Morgenroth, who was the final HW of TD. She said that morale was extremely low and that cancellation was basically inevitable when she came in, despite the ideas she had to try to turn things around. The silly plots in those final months were network mandates. On a more positive note, she declared Lydia Bruce (Maggie) as "the sweetest woman at 30 Rock".

    There's another meta reference about Jack Lee when he tells someone that he should be or is often mistaken for Magnum P.I. In real life, Joel Crothers was often mistaken for Tom Selleck, so that was a fun line.
