  1. I remember that well, and the entire storyline as well as Roscoe's upset with it all (funny enough at the time I had never seen him as Mitch, etc--I had only been watching soaps since 1991). Funny, I knew him from The City, where he played nice guy Nick, so I didn't know that he was usually cast as a baddie... I might be completely off time wise, but I think the story changed direction when McTavish came back to replace Broderick?? Anyone remember? I actually liked an awful lot of 1997 AMC (Tanner Jordan and Jamaica Zombies aside) though it wasn't as strong as Broderick's 1996. 1997 A
  2. I adore Loving but I could never explain the Clay/Alex story at any of the stages I've watched (either when it aired or since on YT) Yet on the Loving FB page it's a fave of many... (Maybe just cuz it went on so long )
  3. Thanks for those early GL links--I'd seen a couple but I admit when it comes to 15 min GL I have particularly been tracking down Agnes Nixon's run, so hadn't seen a lot of these.
  4. Finally watched--too short but mostly sweet. You were skimming, so it's forgiven, but I need to point out it wasn't Dutton she mentioned. She was confused by the question but was obviously talking about when The City ended (maybe there was some talk about her character going to AMC which I hoped for?) She said the producer of The City was producing Port Charles and had asked her to join her, and her husband at the time was going out West anyway to work on a tv series so it made sense to go. Jean D Burke was the EP of The City and immediately went to AMC, of course, and JHC was a producer a
  5. Sorry I thought, naively, my link would go to the playlist they created of the 11 episodes.
  6. That uploader now has through March 17 1994 uploaded.
  7. Sloppy mistake, but I assume he just looked at some site that listed what year Debbi played Angie--which obviously included Loving...
  8. Peggy O'Shea was brilliant. She left I agree due to disagreements with Rauch I think... But the writer right under her was S. Michael Schnessel (at least from the credits) and he was the one who replaced her as HW (he was there until 1990--I've heard very little about him but apparently in the final years was quite ill with AIDS related illnesses). But he seemed more willing to go with Rauch's ideas. He took over officially in Summer 87 which does seem to be when the show became so much more camp.
  9. 1989 seems to be when audiences, who judging by ratings were loving the Rauch stuff before, seemed to lose patience or interest with everything. These reviews have made the rounds but I'll repost them just to give a sense of how Critics reacted to Rauch... 1984 (just when Slesar was joining and before Rauch came on, who replaced him quickly with the Corringtons--who he knew from Texas--who didn't last long either) 1986 1988 (from one of my fave soap writers, Chris Schemering) And just cuz I have the files here, an article about Joe Stuar
  10. Have I??? Who do you think you are asking?? Though we call them "psycho-biddy" films
  11. I was watching some 1984 OLTL episodes (from before and then after Paul Rauch became EP in July) and watching the writing credits--does it drive anyone else how completely off they are on OLTL's Wiki?? LOL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_One_Life_to_Live_crew
  12. Geraldine Page is in my top 3 actors. Back then, especially, there was no way either of those actors would have agreed to a daytime soap in a regular role. I mean yes Kim Hunter had done an arc on Edge of Night, etc, but Page and Bridges' careers were still more prominent than hers was when she was on a soap. Wait--Cranston has a book and mentions Loving?? Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg is semi active on FB. A couple of times, and maybe after a couple of drinks, I've been tempted to message him and ask him about his memories (if he has any) of the pilot film. But then think bett
  13. So very strange! Agnes' archives I went to had the As The Earth Turns bible, but she's listed as co-creator with Irna and Ted Corday, so that makes sense. (it also had two radio "outlines" as they called them--one for Dr Joyce Jones, which was an Irna show Agnes did write for and was at a time that Agnes could have done the actual initial creation--and... Ma Perkins. Which... Maybe she or someone involved in the archives had a copy in and just threw it in there? Talk about random!) Also--re Bell and Nixon. Bell co-created Another World. We know that Irna only wrote it briefly, the
  14. *waits impatiently for the Debbi video*
  15. Thanks!! I missed that issue somehow, though I was trying to get all the AMC ending mags, I wonder if I can find a scan.
  16. Oh, that's more than fair. Im certainly not talking about MW now.
  17. It probably helps that, besides Vincent's, they've been edited. But I agree. Even the Ladies of Loving reunion, which had a *bit* of that at the start, was much tighter and show-centric. Wow! Lots of work put into that. Funny enough, I just found a SOD which voted OLTL as worst show of 1989.
  18. Oh I wouldn't mind if Susan was asked about John--one of his first big storylines was kidnapping her (and then "kidnapping her") in the Destiny on the Danube arc. They definitely worked together and he was pretty major to the 90s of the show. But otherwise, I agree with you. No secret about the micromanaging, but glad to hear him say that. I'm more curious about the earlier comment--Lorraine came on as a favour to Agnes Nixon to try to fix AMC for its anniversary after Pratt's mess--we've basically been told that in interviews. Also, from the start I thought Lorraine said she didn'
  19. YES to Julia Bar. I actually liked Billy Miller on AMC--I know many fans don't agree (it was one of B&E's better stories actually--the reveal of his true motives was drawn out but in a good way--for a long time I just thought he was a regular bit player, playing a friendly bartender who had a few lines at The Comeback). But it did seem a bit awkward to have him among actors who were on the show much much longer. I was never a big Babe fan, but Alexa's love for the character and show was nice to see. The host made one of his first real faux pas I thought when he asked for memor
  20. I actually didn't see it as shade--at least not the way she said it, but maybe that's just me...
  21. LOved the story about director Kaplan's notes (he was a regular at AMC from 1977-97) Interesting when they started talking about AMC being the best soap--something of course some actors, for a myriad reasons, seemed more keen to say than others (reasons like maybe they were on another soap for a long time, maybe their character didn't have the best writing, etc)
