  1. Cast against type

    Vincent Irizarry, from troubled Lujack to slimy everyone else except Nick McHenry.

    Actually, Lowe should come before Munson. Carly supposedly was forced to marry Winston when she first went to Hong Kong, thus invalidating her marriages to Hal, John and Brad.
  3. Hard to blame the B&B stint on anything other than Bell's complete hackdom. He regularly ditched characters and went back to Brooke/Ridge/whoever triangle. Even big names like Sydney Penny and Ric Hearst.
  4. Julia Larabee was the nurse Jack fell for after suffering amnensia in 2004. Jack went off a bridge while taking a criminal to jail. She also had a brief fling with Holden after Jack went back to Carly, and was murdered in early 2005.

    Well, maybe us "crazy CarJackers" can be absolved of "getting her fired". No one should have their career tanked through the good ol' boys network, but it's hard to envision her as NCIS' Kate, for example.

    I believe I missed the word. But I wouldn't consider Susan "punished" for her desire---she was an ambitious woman who married for prestige and then got pregnant to save the marriage. Any woman who wanted a career at the time seems to have been portrayed as a bitch and punished for valuing that over a happy domestic life and children. Susan, Sandy (who was married to Bob but wanted to model), Kim (the tart lounge singer who got knocked up) and even Jennifer, who earned Nancy's disapproval for wanting to continue nursing. It does seem though that no one got married because they were happily in love with who they married.

    Hah! Came up with one....Barbara Garrick

    Its hard to reconcile the Kim we all remember (and who at that point was a grown woman) as someone so pressured by society that she'd married a man she had zero sexual interest in and then staying in that marriage for years. The only trope that hasn't changed though is guys screwing with zero consequence.

    You're judging '70's tropes by modern standards. Abortion wasn't legal until 73. Kim only married John to cover up her ONS with Bob, and she wasn't screwing John, he raped her and she got pregnant with Andy. But when that happened, marital rape wasn't even recognized. I'm a little fuzzy on the entire Paul/Liz/Dan/Susan thing, but there again, younger characters never would've been shown openly cohabitating without marriage. I'm sure ATWT "behind the times" by 70's standards, but even on All in the Family, Gloria and Mike were married and enjoying sex, not single and screwing. And yeah, I'm sure Kim and Jen's mom wasn't killed by Ellen. Their mother isn't listed in the character appearances in the book, so I assume she never appeared on air.

    Do you mean Vanessa and Maureen? Barbara and Margo, ATWT Rick and Philip, GL Sally/Darla/Saul BB Kirk /Lucinda ATWT

    I don't think we saw John and Lucinda's nuptials. It was sprung on everyone as a surprise, iirc.

    To prop Howarth's ridiculous man child Paul. Ugh...as much as I'd hated Goutman's Craig, I'd have KILLED to get more Park/West scenes with Bryce. KILLED.

    Yeah, Craig was probably always near the top of most requested returns, but Oakdale hadn't "moved on" and made Craig obsolete. He'd only been gone 5 or 6 years. His contemporaries were still on the canvas, his family was still there. I wouldn't have objected to an edgier version of Craig, had he been written with any complexity. Not the misogynistic, lazy, consciousless [!@#$%^&*] Goutman and Block conspired to put onscreen. If that's what Goutman, et al wanted---they might as well have brought back Tonio Reyes and Peter Boynton. Boynton wouldn't have broken the bank and Tonio was a using douchebag asshat.
  14. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Sigh...I'll never stop hating how Goutman just never understood who Craig was.
  15. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    There was a point during Bryce's run where his story consisted of making the rounds, checking on the women in his life, from Lyla on down Oh, and at the end, Craig was also trying to get Lily into bed, as I recall.
