  1. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    There is NO comparison between the two actors. Bryce took Craig from the villain -you-love-to-hate days (Betsy) to the show's male lead (Sierra). But he always made his Craig multi-layered and complicated. Block's Craig, while entertaining, was a cartoon.
  2. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Regarding Marisa Tomei: I remember at the time thinking how special she was as an actress, and that she would go far (I know it sounds like hindsight, but it's true). She was especially magnetic when things were going bad for her. (her relationship with her shrew mother, her rape accusations against Bob). She also fit well in the teen scene back then. Unlike a former poster, I did not care for her involvement with Stuart at all. First, I thought the actor was not very good, and second,it was too much of a fairy tale that didn't fit in with the Marcy Saga.

    Wow, I never knew Tom was married before Margo. I do know that he left Barbara at the altar. How many times was Tom married?
  4. Soap Vets That You Never Got Their Appeal

    I've seen very little of Maura West on GH, so I don't know how she is doing there (although I heard she won a Lead Actress Emmy). But I loved her on ATWT. Her pairing with Michael Park was gold, they played off each other so well.
  5. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    I remember when Margaret Colin left ATWT. I swore I would never watch the show again. I hated HBS, and thought she was unattractive. Eventually, she won me over and became my favorite (by far) of the Four Margos. Her battles with Barbara were the highlight of her tenure on the show.
  6. External Scenes in American Soaps

    I loved when Emily and Royce went to the Amalfi Coast in Italy on ATWT. But my favorite "outdoor shot" was when Frannie was trapped with Daryl on that ski transport during the (endless) Carolyn Crawford murder mystery.
  7. Soap Vets That You Never Got Their Appeal

    I never could understand the acclaim for Roger Howarth and Tony Geary. Especially Howarth, who was a two-trick pony...either a blank stare, or spitting out his lines when he was excited. Not exactly a vet, but in the same vein as Howarth was Tom Pelphrey, who was just awful on ATWT.
  8. Soap Stars who did porn/posed nude

    Michael Swan (Duncan, ATWT) did a Playgirl layout, I recall.
  9. Reverend Trask being walled up alive by Barnabas Collins on Dark Shadows.
  10. Jean Passanante looks back at her career

    Jerry675, , did you actually cite the Z Twins and Ameera as examples of Jean's good storytelling? I'm speechless.
  11. Jean Passanante looks back at her career

    I really liked the baby-switch story she did on ATWT. It was a true umbrella story, involving Jennifer, Gwen, James, Paul, Emily, Carly, etc. Unfortuanetly, I hated every other story she was involved with on that show.
  12. Highest Rated Episodes Ever

    It would be interesting to see what the highest-rated episode for every soap was.
  13. Most Ridiculous Soap Moments

    ATWT: Duncan holding up the shrunken head of Shannon, crying "Oh,my wee lassie". Dark Shadows: Absolutely anything.
  14. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    I started watching the show when the Steve/Betsy/Craig story started. So I watched the show for the next 30 years, and never realized Steve had been married before. I never once heard the name Carol mentioned. Usually, the show was pretty good with using its history (except for Goutman). I wonder why the Carol character was forgotten?
  15. ALL: Female Friendships that were on equal footing?

    First friendship I thought of was Molly/Carly on ATWT.
