  1. @DRW50 This is a fascinating tidbit about what may have pertained to Season 2 of the 1991 show. Context: Innovation Comics was a short-lived independent comics outfit during the early '90s comics boom. They briefly had the rights to Dark Shadows, Lost in Space, A Nightmare on Elm Street and other properties, and produced gorgeous books with beautiful painted art. The quality of the writing varied wildly, but the LIS series in particular had some great, mature stories for such a goofy property, including an extended storyline written by Bill Mumy. I read some of these books first as a kid and then a teenager. They can also be found to read online through 'alternative means.' The DS comics' rights very strictly pertained only to the 1991 series and were directly approved by Dan Curtis and co., though they were allowed to use Lara Parker's likeness for a new character in the first arc, in which Barnabas and Julia go to a town involved with the Salem witch trials. The DS comic ended abruptly with Innovation going bankrupt, amidst a new storyline focusing on ghosts and Sarah Collins, again with beautiful painted art. The article above suggests Innovation - which had direct access to Dan Curtis - knew of some of the aborted plans for DS Season 2, including possibly a return for Lysette Anthony as the brunette Angelique-as-Cassandra. (I'd heard in the past that Michael T. Weiss would return as the werewolf Chris Jennings, but Peter Bradford recurring makes more sense.)
  2. Again: Why are you replying to complaints about your posting behavior with talking about Allen Potter?
  3. He remains who I thought he was.
  4. What on Earth does Allen Potter have to do with complaints about you?
  5. Wow. I had no idea. I don't think she was enough of a glamourpuss for that role or show.
  6. Donna: Stop using the status feed to reply directly to posters you're speaking to in threads. Either reply there or DM them.

  7. No, you haven't said, Donna. People are asking you to consider what they're telling you about your behavior and how you're handling posting here, and in return you're just suggesting they don't 'get you.' Yursoaking's analysis of your behavior pattern is correct.
  8. Oh, I think someone said she went the Marcy Walker route - born again. I guess that might close the door too.
  9. Those '80s clips - if there's an encapsulation of Paul Rauch's OLTL excesses better than peroxide blondes, a blind Clint Ritchie rappelling into a cave to escape stereotypical New York mobsters, Sharon Gabet howling away at disappearing corpses, and OTT fratboys sneering about being 'stoned on coke' I don't know of it. But it is a lot of fun. I did like seeing Viki and Tina by the same old kitchen table, too. I've only occasionally seen much of them bonding like that back in Andrea's original run - most of my more loving Viki/Tina memories were with Karen Witter. I like how they're playing an instrumental version of "The Way You Make Me Feel" at the restaurant - they couldn't afford the actual Michael Jackson vocal track even in the '80s? Lisa Peluso was always so game on any show no matter how big or in this case pointless the role. She did so many shows. She was a lifer too, a child actress I believe, and she had to fill big, big shoes taking over a key Erica Kane analog role as Ava on Agnes' Loving. It's hard to replace Roya Megnot, let alone the larger shadow of Lucci and Erica. But she was great on every show. I guess she's entirely retired to real estate now but she'd make a good short term villain on GH or something.
  10. I know he'd wanted a moratorium on what he famously called "cousinfucking" i.e. Max and Chelsea. He had planned to do a triangle with Max, Mimi and the teen Abby (Ashley Benson). It would've worked IMO, except Farah Fath quickly left and then it all went into a spin. I think he was very behind Chelsea with Nick Fallon, his creation, and a character and couple I initially loved. But it was immediately torpedoed bc someone at DAYS clearly disdained 'nerds' and set about ruining and humiliating Nick, putting Chelsea back with Max, etc. (This even extended to villainizing Nick in future regimes.) Sheffer's DAYS became a shitshow very quickly and he was not at all blameless, but it was also clear instantly he was being interfered with, and a tonal clash with a show/production that would've rather had John and Marlena sit around listening to Smokey Robinson in a mountain cabin.
  11. It also doesn't really matter what kind of presence you had at another forum in another time. When you refuse to learn the rules of how or where to post, or what's appropriate vs. just spam or unwieldy, you give the distinct impression that while you're being outwardly polite, you are not genuinely taking anything we say seriously because you believe you have some authority we do not. You don't. I know that you were on other forums or even on Usenet. That was almost twenty years ago. Things have changed. This is not your home forum, and you are not the center of it. You cannot just keep posting long swaths of books, or long URL strings, or stuff in the wrong threads. Like, even a decade ago that was bad netiquette. I don't know what role you or your partner felt you held elsewhere, but it is not relevant to SON.
  12. Yeah, I thought that was it. @Errol and @Toups please ban this one too.
  13. Why were you posting pictures of them in this thread on soap ratings from the '80s in the first place?
  14. Two weeks(?) behind: D.J. doing cheesy magic tricks for the wrong baby in the NICU was gold. The kind of comedy Michael Fishman excels at. The moment where Dan accidentally calls Louise "Rose" was beautifully played by Goodman and Sagel.
