  1. Maybe I'm blind, but I never would have picked out Christopher Durham or David O'Brien.
  2. I never thought about it, but you are right, vetsoapfan. There was very little "overlap" of stories. Everything was about one storyline until it ended, then another one began...unusual for a soap.
  3. The first time-travel (Victoria's trip to the past) will always be my favorite storyline.
  4. Actually, they did do a "Dr. Bob as a perve to a young girl" storyline. But fortunately ,it was all in the girl's (Marissa Tomei) mind.
  5. The all-time nadir on ATWT was the casting of the first "adult" Paul Ryan. I can't remember his name, but he came on when all of those other no-talents did (Sarah and Mark Kasnoff, T. Jones, that model Zoe). But the Paul model was the worst...wooden beyond belief. Sometimes there is hope. When Agim Kaba came on as Aaron, he was awful, but he did improve over time. I have to agree with the poster who said that Thorne No. 1 of B&B was one of the worst.
  6. Was Miranda ever mentioned again after she left?
  7. A perfect example was the Luke/Noah pairing on ATWT. When he first appeared, Noah was attracted to Maddie. 30 days later, he just flipped for Luke. Since they got together so quickly, there was nothing left but one ridiculous storyline after another (Ameera, Professor Scarf, the Z Twins, etc). Why not make Noah bisexual, where he has to juggle Luke and Maddie, keeping him in everyone's orbit, and not isolated in the gay storyline?
  8. Hank Elliott on ATWT was daytime's first gay male character. It's probably a safe bet to say that Barnabas Collins was soap's first vampire.
  9. My personal Holy Grail would be the first soap story I ever remember seeing as a kid. It was The Edge Of Night, and it was the story that introduced the character of Nicole Travis. There was a crazy lady named Stephanie Martin, who pissed off EVERYBODY in Monticello, and , of course, was murdered. Nicole was arrested, but since the whole town wanted her dead, every character seemed to have their moment on the witness stand. Adam Drake represented Nicole, setting the stage for their romance. The day they revealed the killer, it was like "Who Shot J.R." for me.
  10. The clips featuring Alan White were bad, but I'm so glad they were posted, because it made me watch other clips on the same show, namely the Trial Of Barbara Ryan, when Babs was tried for her spa kidnapping of Emily, Carly and Rose. There were some great scenes in that trial, especially when Hal was asked on the stand whether he thought Barbara should go to jail for the rest of her life - and he was forced to choose between Barbara and Emily. But the best scene is the last, when Carly confronts Barbara after she is set free on a technicality. Without histrionics, Maura sticks the knife in, but good.
  11. Didn't Mitchell Ryan get fired from Dark Shadows because of a drinking problem? I believe Joe Breen got canned from ATWT because of illness. Didn't ATWT do a story on Martha Byrne's slight weight gain?
  12. Lucinda Walsh and Lily Snyder Kim Hughes and Carly Tenney Luke Snyder and Emily Stewart
  13. The Craig/ Dani scene was disgusting, since Craig once thought she was his daughter. But the Parker/Liberty bed scene takes the cake for me. The kid playing Parker was how old when this scene was filmed?
  14. Probably will be the strangest one listed here: the Mausoleum on Dark Shadows.
