  1. Paul was the second actor to play Max, an urchin who Drew thought was her long-lost brother. She adopted him after finding out Selena was her actual mother. Max dated Susan but didn't do much else. Jesse Soffer was the first actor to play Max.
  2. I feel bad for Paulo. He is the only one in this group who has not gone on to success in primetime tv, films, or theater. He has also made several references to his weight gain.
  3. Locher: "I met you backstage after your play!" "I remember what you had in your dressing room!" "Anthony Addabbo died on my birthday!"
  4. Using mannequins for intimate scenes is ridiculous. Why don't they just write COVID19 into the story? That would easily explain any social distancing or lack of intimate contact.
  5. Exactly. Search For Tomorrow, after the flood, moved everyone into an apartment building. Lindenstrasse centered around an apartment building. Soaps could get so much use out of a couple of apartment sets, which could be redecorated day-to-day depending on the resident. It would at least be an improvement on the tiny hotel rooms that are usually shown.
  6. I have always liked Hope but I agree with the majority of comments here; the character has been an empty shell for years. If/when she returns maybe Hope can be revitalized under a new writer. I am not sure she will be able to come back by the time DOOL gets the axe, however. These departures are just more indicators of DOOL's budget squeeze. By this show's end, everyone will have doppelgangers (to save money on cast) and will live in the same hotel room (to save more money on sets).
  7. The fashion show reruns are not fun to watch if you have already seen them before. It's pretty standard; random models walking down the runway while the Forrresters/Spectras observe from the sidelines. I would have been more interested in seeing other episodes from the Portofino shoot, especially Macy's reunion with Thorne and Sally. The scene where Sally is listening to Macy singing on the stereo, only to hear the real Macy singing behind her is chilling. I never understood why some are so eager to recast roles which have played by 1 actor for 20 or 30 years. It's not like HT is unavailable. With that said, I wouldn't mind KA coming to B&B as a new character, of course Bradley would get bored and forget about her after 6 months.
  8. It was so unique for an American soap to have a backlot set. I would rather have this than Horton Square, which reminds me of Sesame Street.
  9. A few thoughts: I liked hearing about Simon and Taggart's time on Search, and how they transitioned from writers to actors. I wasn't surprised to hear that Jonathan was basically Kreizman's surrogate/stand-in character. He also mentioned Harley as one of his favorites. When Taggart asked Brown if he was "responsible" for the clone, he blamed Rauch for the idea. I didn't expect him to declare that he was a fan of kitchen sink drama or that Ryan's Hope was his favorite soap, given the kind of writing E&B are known for. Also heard some new details about the Zaslow situation. Apparently E&B convinced Rauch to give Roger ALS, but the story was pulled at the last minute. Also, no one on the panel knew that MZ played David Rinaldi in the 80s, and that when he went to OLTL he was reprising an old role, not creating a new one.
  10. I was looking for the same information and found this blogpost explaining what happened to Keemo: https://glmanny.wordpress.com/2014/01/29/faq-whatever-happened-to-keemo-abbott/ Watching as a kid, I was a fan of Volien family and wondered where Keemo went and why Jack never mentioned him. Despite the awkward scenes with Luan and Keemo learning "American customs," the actors involved were excellent. Elizabeth Sung played Luan's excitement and reticence over going away with Jack perfectly. She fit in well with the other cast in the bachelorette party, too. I think 1994 had one of the best casts in Y&R's history.
  11. I have been meaning to pick up those 90s coffee table books for some time but never got around to it. This is my small collection: Guiding Light: The Complete Family Album - Julie Poll Soap Opera Encyclopedia - Christopher Schemering Lorelei's Guiding Light: An Intimate Diary - Beth Chamberlin 😂 I also have some soap-related autobiographies, Susan Lucci, Kim Zimmer, Jeanne Cooper among them.
  12. Looks like I get to skip all of B&B next week.
  13. If you haven't found them yet, here are some scenes leading up to showdown.
  14. Watching the Cooper reunion now, Beth Ehlers's first comment upon meeting Justin Deas was "Here's the executive producer's boyfriend." LOL!
  15. I think it's also because Alan was part of PGP management, and still sees himself as part of management. I didn't like how he protected PGP and MADD by pivoting when Denise Pence brought up the Zaslow situation. Also if P&P someday realizes that it is sitting on a potential IP goldmine in the form of its soap archives and licenses, who are they going to ask to organize/market it? He probably doesn't want to burn bridges. He should solicit questions from fans in advance, and have a list of those questions ready at hand during these awkward pauses. It's not that difficult.
