  1. I just watched the December 24, 1985 episode of Another World. While overall 1985 was horribly written this episode was very good. All of my favourite families were represented - Matthews (Liz, Sally, Kevin), Corys (Mac, Rachel, Ada, Nancy), Ewings (Larry, Clarice, Catlin), Loves (Peter, Donna, Bridget, Marley), McKinnons (Kathleen, MJ, Jake), Hardings (Thomasina, Carter) and the friends (Cass, Felicia, Wally, Dee). Sadly within a year most of these characters would be written out or recast. In 1986 there was an interview with Margaret DePriest, Donna Swajeski (an executive at NBC at a the time) and John Whitesell where they bragged about refocusing the show and pretty much changing the majority of the cast. They had no idea what an embarrassment of riches they had with the cast and characters that were there. Ironically it was Swajeski 2 years later who brought the show its last period of stability and respect.
  2. Marty rape was really difficult to watch. Sadly it happens all too often on campuses.
  3. If I recall correctly Kathleen Widdoes was in a play during the final weeks of ATWT. However, there could be more to the story. I was also sad that we did not get a few last scenes with Emma.
  4. Beverlee Mckinsey was one of the reasons I got hooked on Another World in the mid seventies, I never thought I would ever accept anyone else as Iris but Carmen Duncan won me over. RIP.
  5. It definitely looks like her.
  6. Peggy Sloane was Another World's last good head writer. I wish she had stuck around for more than 2 years.
  7. Rachel and Janice fighting in the pool! Mac, Mitch, Willis, Gwen, Brian, Vivien, Russ...
  8. Jason Frame told Nicole that he and her mother Elizabeth were friends when he worked for the Love's as a horse trainer. The Love children thought their mother had committed suicide. However, in 1988 they found out that Reginald killed her as Jason was blackmailing Reginald about it. I just watched these episodes on YouTube. Peter was the first to show up as an employee at Cory Publishing. In the beginning he and Cass had a bit of rivalry over Sally Frame. Then Donna, Perry, Nicole, Marley, Victoria and finally Reginald arrived in this order. Here is Anna Stuart's first episode. She shows up at 32 mins. So many of my favourite characters are in this episode. It also the first episode where Peg Murray (Olga AMC) was filling in for Connie Ford as Ada. 1983 and d1984 were such good years for the show. I rewatched what is available of these years on YouTube last year and they hold up very well. It is so frustrating that it all went to Hell in 1985.
  9. Yea I think the story would have gone on if Joe Breen had remained in the role and Doug Marland has not died.
  10. It sounds like a lot of you did not enjoy the Scott Eldridge story. I thought Marland told a great story for Lisa by using a gap in time where she was off screen. He really mined As the World Turns' history.
  11. I agree @pdm1974. Sally should have left town and then returned after Catlin and Brittany left with a new actress playing her. Having Jennifer Runyon return would have been ideal. She was my favourite Sally.
  12. That is it in a nutshell!!
  13. I am with you Khan. I have always thought a Jamie / Alice romance would have blown up Bay City. It would have given Victoria Wyndham and Jacqueline Courtney years of story.
