  1. GH - In the mid 80s, Kevin Bernhardt subbed for Jack Wagner as Frisco, then was brought on as Kevin O'Connor. EON - Larkin Malloy returned as Sky Whitney after his surgically-altered imposter, Jefferson Brown, was killed off. RH - Diana van der Vlis as Nell Beaulac and Sherry Rowan OLTL did it a bit as well, particularly when they did their sci-fi or flashback stories: Larry Pine as Roger Gordon and Randolph Lord (he also was on GL as more than one character) John Brotherton as Jared Banks and a young Clint Buchanan Melissa Archer as Natalie and a young Maria Roberts Robert Woods as Bo Buchanan and a surgically altered Patrick London Roy Thinnes as Alex Crowne/Coronal and Sloan Carpenter John Fiedler as Virgil the angel and Gilbert the human Loyita Chapel as Blaze, Renee & Dallas Christine Jones subbed as Viki, then was Pamela Stuart
  2. Recent (Feb. 2019) nice article/interview with Forrest Compton (MIke Karr, EON). He seems like such a lovely man. Nice to hear he's happy and doing well. https://shelterislandreporter.timesreview.com/2019/02/22/island-profile-forrest-compton-soldier-actor-islander/
  3. Myself and a friend ran DAM's website and board back then and, yeah, we concurred! 😁 Actually, the scene they had in the closet of the hotel back in August 2003 was the same day we had a blackout in NYC. We joked that it was so hot it blew the power. 😛
  4. On OLTL, when Max was being played by Nicholas Walker (and calling himself Matt), he and Gabrielle had a pretty hot scene in Asa's barn. At one point, Asa and Cord even walked into the barn but never knew the couple was there. I always did think NW and FH had better chemistry than her and JDP. James' Max always felt more like a player to me, like he never really loved anyone more than himself.
  5. GL - Michelle Bauer Rachel Miner Bethany Joy Lenz Not sure what Rebecca Budig has done outside of daytime
  6. I think he was playing a new character but, yeah, they offed him with a heart attack, then Reva and one of her young, blond boy-toys, Noah Chase, dragged him to a bar. I checked IMDB and this character was on in 2000.
  7. Didn't his character on GL end up as the corpse in some silly Weekend At Bernie's story with Reva?
  8. GH- Of course, Scott was part of the infamous Luke/Laura/Scotty triangle. But he later became the focal point of a different kind of triangle, with Lucy & Dominique, which was particularly touching. Lucy had come back to town and found her old love married. Dominique was very sweet as well as wise and her being in their lives, as Scotty's wife and Lucy's friend (despite being her rival), made both characters more loving and less selfish people. The pinnacle came when Dominique was diagnosed with a terminal disease and Lucy agreed to carry her and Scotty's baby, out of love for both of them and not as a ploy to end up with Scott--even though she was hoping for it to happen eventually. The story played out with such depth of feeling, not only for Scott losing a true love but for Lucy as well, losing the closest (and only female) friend she had at the time who had accepted her.
  9. WIth Claire Labine, as well-written and topical as her stories were on GH, she basically dished out a triple series of heavy-hitting, tragic medical storylines: BJ's death, Stone's AIDS and Monica's breast cancer. She definitely wanted to go for the realistic, heavy-hitting topics, that would get people thinking and talking.
  10. Scorpius was actually one of the things that had me ff-ing so he's not a selling point for me, lol. I got as far as the first 1 or 2 episodes of season 2 but still wasn't feeling it. At some future point, who knows...took me more than one attempt to like The Orville, for instance, which I had turned off in about 30 minutes of the premiere. I also had no familiarity with Seth M's work. But, somewhere between the potty humor, actual episodes about pottying and Seth's somewhat heavy-handed attempts at stating his stance on things, things started to morph for me...or the show morphed enough to make up for the clunky stuff.
  11. I wish I had seen that. I was still way behind, circa 1972, when it got yanked from YT. Here's some Ray.
  12. I was a teen when I first saw AMC and Ray Gardner and he was scary. Not because he was some powerful, uber-clever, Machiavellian, over the top villain, but because he was so ordinary. Like, he was the guy you'd be afraid to run into on the street or the one you figured would break into your house and attack you. It threw me a bit at first when Gil Rogers joined GL as Hawk because, while the Southern mannerisms were somewhat the same, Ray had been so vile, whereas Hawk was basically just a flawed good old boy...devious at times, yes, but not evil.
  13. Yeah, I was noticing Stargate SG1 fans seemed to love the addition of Browder and Black in the last 2 seasons. But I watched neither show while it was still in production so I didn't know who they were when they came along on SG1. Didn't really care for either of their characters on SG1 or those couple of seasons, for that matter. As for Farscape, I did like their characters better there but the show itself, at least the first season, just didn't have a strong enough appeal for me to continue with it. And I wasn't that keen on the Henson Creature Shop muppets as regular characters. Not giving up on Bones just yet. I think I generally get somewhat turned off when characters are written with an attitude of "let me show you how smart, snarky and narcissistic I can be", which seems to be so prevalent the last decade or so. And this show seems to have several of them. And...every time I hear her being called "Bones", I think of Capt. Kirk and Dr. McCoy.
  14. Watched the first season of Farscape, with some fast forwarding. Not really loving it. Decided to read ahead to see if anything might entice me to stick with it but, nope, I'm over it. 2 episodes into Bones. On the fence about it so far. The supporting characters in the lab are a bit annoying.
  15. Found a charming little BBC series on amazon called "The Indian Doctor". It's a dramedy about a doctor and his wife who come from India to a mining town in Wales in the 1960s...culture shock, class shock, etc. It's only 15 episodes and I'm about halfway through. I've had Bones on my watchlist for a while but haven't gotten round to it. Never really been a fan of David Boreanaz so it's more a genre thing for me if I start it and stick with it.
