  1. During Jean Passante's interview on The Locher Room, she said that the writers wanted to bring back every character from the past that they possibly could; however, the people who controlled the purse strings said no. I would've HATED an ambiguous ending. While the ending may have been far from perfect (what could ever be perfect?) I cried my eyes out at the finale. I found it to be incredibly touching and moving. The show was over and was never going to be brought back due to P&G. I loved that it put an "ending stamp" on the story. For those who are doing a re-watch of the series and want to piece together the missing episodes: https://classicsodatwt.tumblr.com/page/3 I believe it goes back as far as 1976? And it only goes up to 1990 but it really helped me piece together '86-'90 when I watched it. (Started in 2016 and am up to 1997 right now where the show is definitely firing on all cylinders. I have to force myself to only watch one a day or I'd never get anything done!)
  2. The Goutman interview is absolutely a school class in what an EP has to handle to keep a show running and all the various suits happy - CBS and P&G, which I found very interesting he said they were often at odds. The ratings pressure. The disappearing budget issue - which seems to be at the heart of everything that people complain about the last 10 years - for instance, they simply couldn't afford to pay the veteran actors their salaries. But he and the writers clearly had a love and respect for the show's history and fought as hard as they could to keep it alive while CBS and P&G constantly said, "No." "No." "No." When I get there on my rewatch (am in 1997 right now) I'll have a new appreciate for what was going on behind the scenes and how hard they were trying to make everyone happy. It sounds like an impossible situation.
  3. Boy, you are just a bitter old expletive, aren't you? Do you gain any pleasure from anything?
  4. There's a new LGBT soap-like podcast, The Homos of Harmony Haven. A new 6 min episode is released each Monday through Friday. It would be awesome if Netflix or Hulu would take this and make it into maybe just a 15 min daily serial. Less money needed that way? https://thehomosofharmonyhaven.buzzsprout.com
  5. Helen is doing quite well and still teaching in NYC. From my talks with her, I don't know that she'd be up for a reunion like this. Ryan's Hope was a job that is well behind her and she's more focused on her teaching these days. She's still exactly what you'd expect of her. Professional, has no patience for BS or laziness, and expects hard work from those whom she coaches.
  6. At least it makes a change from hearing you and everyone else on this board rant about how much they despise a show that's been off the air for 10 years. You people are an absolute trip. Normally, I'm with Victoria Foxton - just scrolling through reading member's incessant complaining about how horrible As The World Turns was - except in the 60s and 70s where are there are no episodes to tear apart bit by bit. Sometimes, I just need to bitch slap the board. You all really are a bunch of pathetic wannabe soap opera writers/producers with no concept of what goes into creating it and would fail miserably at the job. But, you know, you're bored and have no lives so some of the most negative people on the planet have a spot to come to complain about how horrible soap operas are. And you wonder why TPTB don't give a [!@#$%^&*] about what y'all think and ignore you as much as possible???? If it weren't for the wonderful work Brolden does to track the episodes of ATWT and me feeling responsible to help him out since I'm watching the show in order from YouTube as much as I can, I wouldn't come here. But he's doing some admirable work and I want to help him with added episodes I've found or to clear up some questions he has. I usually read without commenting but sometimes you people are so nasty, vindictive, and hateful that I decide to join in - only it's aimed at the board members instead of a 10 year old television show.
  7. Not trying to avenge any zoom host. Just calling out a nobody whining about they're not getting to hear the interviews they want. Wah Wah Wah - you poor little thing. Who are you to say what Locher's place is? Just who do you think you are? The be all end all most knowledgable person of all time who gets to dictate to other people live their lives, interview actors, and create YouTube series? Stop watching these reunions if you don't like them. And let go whatever this vendetta you have against someone you don't even know. Is your life that empty?
  8. You're welcome. But you know...continue to bitch and whine and moan over something you have no control. Enjoy it or not. Or do something about it. It's SOOOOOOO much easier to just complain on a message board though, isn't it?
  9. I don't know. It's his show. He's the host. I think he's perfectly within his right to squelch any talk he seems inappropriate. Maybe you should contact these actors and interview them yourself? You might get more of what you're looking for?
  10. Work with anyone. A lot of users here are nobodies hiding behind a fake persona on a message board so it's easy to [!@#$%^&*] on the past. But, as you said, you don't [!@#$%^&*] where you eat and the entire entertainment industry talks. If an actor wants to go on camera and be caught on cam for all eternity talking smack about your fellow employers, they'd find it hard to work with anyone. No one wants to hire an actor for a project who might go trash-talking it several years down the line. Actors from soaps are going to be working in theater, on short films, maybe a guest spot on a TV series, who knows. If they're going to publicly speak about a past job, it's in their best interest to speak positively. Same goes in the "real world." If you're in a job interview and trash talk your employer/co-workers, you're likely not going to be the shortlist for who that company wants to hire. People here live in a land of critique and negativity...cuz it's a message board. It's not real life.
  11. Being in the industry, if you want to continue to work, you don't trash work you've done before. It's seen as "negative" in the industry and few want to work with "negative" people. Plus, unlike most of this board, some people prefer to carry with them the positive memories of their lives and let the not-so-positive go. It's much healthier that way. Y'all might try it.
  12. Oh, please let me be the one to send the board into a tizzy....Lisa was played by Anne Sayre (the brilliant NY stage performer who portrayed Mitzi for years on ATWT. And she did a good Lisa impression - her odd cadences, delivery and missed words/flubbed lines included!) According to the credits, Gregg Marx was supposed to play Tom but there were technical issues so Trent read his part (and Casey's - again due to tech issues.) It was an absolute joy to watch those actors together again being silly and having fun "being together" again. Seeing the original Roseanna and Tom Wiggins as Craig was fun. Agim was the best choice for Holden since Jon wouldn't do it. Alex Chando as Lily was the only off choice for me but, as she played Trent's sister AND Zack Roerig was supposed to be there, I see why they went with it.) 'Twas an hour delightfully spent.
  13. What a truly lovely idea. And for a great cause. It's a benefit for Trent's theater company right here in the Hudson Valley. The final episode is the perfect episode for him to choose because it features all his friends and the people he knew and loved (and we all did - those of us who are actually fans of As The World Turns and didn't just hate-watch it after 1975.) I've made my donation and, along with many others, will be watching with glee and fond memories of the show, actors, and characters that I loved for so many years.
  14. I have season 5 & 6 on DVD although in terrible quality from someone's VHS recordings from SoapNet but I've been wanting to watch Seasons 7-9 for years!
