  1. This list is interesting, in the same way that a toddler’s crayon artwork on a freshly painted wall is. Great for Beth Maitland and Peter Bergman. I’m surprised that Eileen Davidson and Camryn Grimes did not make the cut.
  2. And even that one shrank significantly around 2008 (and probably gradually even before then). During that time, ATWT went to permanent standing sets. To accommodate that, sets either disappeared (Lily’s real mansion, the Stewart home) or became visibly smaller (Carjack’s house, Oakdale Memorial, the police station, Al’s, Fashions, the Lakeview, Tom and Margo’s house, Metro).
  3. It is interesting to me that the opening sequence very rarely got updated with cast changes until the late 1980s. There were several different iterations and styles of charcoal and pencil sketch openings, but rarely were new faces added unless the whole thing was redone. I guess what I’m saying is that I should not complain about the current opening not being updated when it took several years for Jeanne Cooper to even be added!
  4. It is a shame that Bell never recast Karen. Clearly JJ was never going to commit full time. Karen was never a strong character to begin with, so recasting her with a tour de force actress and basically resetting the character could have allowed the show to easily fill the void that Flannery’s absence left in the show. And of course, keep Crystal Chappell as her love interest. My point is that thiscould have grounded Caroline in the canvas and solidified the Spencers. Guess that was never going to be on the table anyway. It is a shame because Caroline was a missed opportunity and could still be good with a strong recast... preferrably someone who doesn’t come across as squeaky as Godfrey often did.
  5. Penny made that statement in 1998 at Nancy’s party set on the Valetta, which sank around August. Ellen was present. The episodes in whole or part are definitely on YouTube. This was also.when Kirk and Sam disappeared. Penny did return in 2000 for a Christmas dinner at the Mona Lisa. Bob, Kim, Lisa, Nancy, and Chris were present. This may have been the final or one of the final times we saw the Mona Lisa set. Bob and Kim’s home was still intact gor several more years and used frequently during Allison/Chris’s storylines and many times that Bob/Kim were shown in general. It was also used as a set when Colleen Zenk did commercials for Tyson Chicken as Barbara. We would see the kitchen until around late 2005. After that, elements of Bob and Kim’s kitchen became part of Katie’s WOAK set. We would not see Bob and Kim’s living room after 1999, I believe. Even then, its angles had shifted and it had been rearranged, sliced down to a couch in front of a window with a simple foyer (no step or staircase).
  6. How soon into Sally’s run did Mal pull this stunt? Wow, the more that comes out about the brief SSM/KA run, the more it appears the deck was stacked against them from the beginning. And I know that SSM came in with no solid plan... but it seems like that’s more on Sony/CBS than Sally herself. Steve Kent and Angelica McDaniel have been common denominators here among this set of pit vipers for almost 8 years.
  7. I need these stories and the contrived Rosales crap to end. I (almost) long for the days of Diana DiGarmo.
  8. They always dressed Carolyn Conwell so unflatteringly until 1998/99 when they gave her the Carl returns story. She was beautifully featured in the end sequence until CBS got rid of it
  9. The lighting issue is interesting to me. When I watch the show live or dvr, the lighting is darker, though not as moody as pre-2012. But when I streamthe show with the CBS app, no what what device—ipad, roku, or apple tv—the lighting/ picture is pale and washed out.
  10. It also seems that the old courtroom has been retired in favor of the cheap plastic looking version shown over the past few days. The old version had dark, mahogany walls. It had been in use for at least 25-30 years and had been revamped under JFP. And the tack house has been MIA for a long time too
  11. Kim Hughes owns worst! Also Sally Spectra in her wedding to Clarke Garrison
  12. Wow SF looks so well-rested and geuninely happy. B&B must have been stressful for her. I know that she mentioned having a terrible commute, and I am sure that the hectic shooting schedule and uninspired writing took its toll.
  13. Gah, sometimes Melissa Ordway can ruin an entire episode for me. Her Abby is so milquetoast. It is still shocking that they let GH take Emme Rylan away.
  14. Again, glad that Dylan is in the dustbin of Y&R history, at least for the time being. I loved the episode. It is always so nice to see older clips in such high quality. The only strange thing was that the previews insinuated that the show would include clips with Diane and Jill. But I know that the show can only fill so much time.
