  1. Not at all...I got thicker skin than that....
  2. I am glad I gave you a laugh....all I can say I was young back then. And I guess that when they did the shift in the mid 80's they were looking to capture my demo. I guess...but today I do see the charm in Ada. Age brings wisdom, I guess....
  3. I admit when I was younger back in the 80's I was not interested in Clarice or Ada, but wanted to see more of the money and intrigue. As a (much older) person today, I see the charm of Clarice and Larry. I would have definitely hung and had a beer or 2 with him. I never realized the depth of her storyline though until now.
  4. No worries. It happened in 1981. All talk is fair game. I like the relationship between Sandy and Jamie. I am guessing Cecile destroys it.
  5. What?!? Jerry rapes Clarice? I am still at the hostage stuff. Mac just got shot....
  6. I am going to change gears slightly, I am watching AW 1981, it is summer and the writer's strike is in full gear. Denny Hobson has been hired by the Blackhawk Group of which Petronia Paley works. But what struck me was that Jamie Frame is kidnapped, they thought it was Sandy and one of his kidnappers is a young Ed O'Neil who later became Ed Bundy and then Modern Family. It took me about 3 episodes before I realized it. Ed is from Youngstown, OH where I have called home for the past 25 years.
  7. So I have been watching the episodes from 1981. I am now in June 1981 and Cecile has been recast and is now being played by Nancy Frangione. It is amazing how in a few episodes how the character has been ramped up into the conniving Cecile that I remember watching in later years. Was the recast Susan Keith's leaving of her own accord or a planned re-imagining of the character?
  8. Right now for some unexplained reason, I am watching AW in 1981. I don't think my original viewing happened until about 1983-84. Which by then was a far different show than what I am watching now. What a difference a few years makes. The pace is slower. Cecile, played by Susan Keith is conniving, but not over the top. She has a career. When I started she was going after Peter Love, just for the money.... Ray Liotta is on a god bit. We have Peter Brady, I know, Christopher Knight. Blaine is also just going for the pot of Gold. There are the brother and sister who come from money, but I think their time is coming to a close. Mac and Rachel are in full storyline at the mansion and the Complex, which I don't remember being a term when I started watching. Liz actually works and is not just a busy body. There is a charm in this period. Although I am partial to seeing Donna and Vicky...Cass...Felicia...
  9. So I spent the last month reading all the posts. A few every day. I started watching in about 1983-85. I can remember that I was at college watching and the scene where "Marley" aka Vicky comes in and kisses Jake was a shock to the few of us in front of the TV. I was a huge fan of Anna Stuart and loved snotty Donna Love. By far the reason I watched. When she left and then returned in that hall of mirrors, that was a very pleasant surprise for me. I know the mid 80's were considered "crap" by many, but I enjoyed it. It was fastpased. Building the Love family as some elitist patrician family was fun. Especially in the early days with the money gone how they struggled to mantain the facade. I lost interest in subsequent years, you know life and all that stuff. I would check in once in a while. Less Donna meant less me. But when the end was announced, I came back. What a mess. It was evident. A gorilla. Really. What crap. Everything in life has a timeline, so did Bay City and in a broader stroke Soap Operas. I at one point thought I would love to be a writer on a soap. I even wrote my own by hand for a few years. Looking back it was crap. But I enjoyed it. I loved the conjecture, the insight and the memories of this board. I am not usually a poster, and it has been a long time so probably not alot of notice, but I felt compelled to write. RIP Another World. It was like any relationship, we had our good times, our sad times, we were sometimes disappointed and sometimes we were delightfully surprised. This is my favorite scene(s). Donna, Vicky and Queen Cecile.
