    Back to Meg Ryan....most actors on general have a shelf life. She had a few blockbusters, a few solid commercial success, and a LOT of poorly chosen and forgettable movies. Lord, that child was lucky anyone gave her another role after Armed and Dangerous. I don't blame her for feeling burned out by the end of her relationship with Quaid, but by then her career was already in a death spiral.

    My guess is that Broderick (with her AMC ties) was writing her version of young Erica Kane. And totally wrote Julia as the Mary Sue foil. I think by the end, they were setting up a sextet with Reid/Julia/Jack/Carly/Brad/Molly, but Kokotais left them in the lurch. They seemed to think Loprieno was a coup and retooled the character for some head-scratching reason. To Broderick's credit though, she was turning Carly around before she was fired. I was sad Kathleen didn't get to come back for the finale. I've never heard anything, but maybe she just didn't want to.

    I don't think Broderick "got" the vets and just "rebooted" them as she saw fit. '98 is really kind of a lost year, where nothing really worked, and most of what happened was just swept under the rug and rarely ever referred to again. JHC, it was thanks to her Carly married three men in fourteen months while lusting for Jack. Not to mention, the ever changing terms of that 50 million dollar trust. Eddie, Georgia, Alec Wallace, Brad and Delores....pretty much clunkers. Denise was offensive, and initially a '70's era stereotype. The Lucinda/James previous relationship made zero sense. Don't even get me started on "running from a Prince in a hat and glasses disguise" drip Julia Lindsey.

    That's because for most of his existence, he was a limp presence on a shoulder or "sleeping". While Emily was married to Hal, we saw more of Emily with Parker than her own kid. The entire "Hughes man with Stewart woman" feud the last ten years was made up crap, but Dan Stewart's grandson should've had a presence on the show.

    For a legacy child, Daniel sure was an afterthought quickly after his birth. If I were doing a reboot, he'd be in it. Imagine the mess he'd be. Lol. Neither SH or KMH were particularly warm, emotive performers. What they had goes beyond anti-chemistry to some black hole where the laws of physics no longer work as we understand it. Except for Em's brief time with Hal, I never found her or KMH likeable.

    Ugh.. .I stumbled on to Daniel's conception on day on utube. It was....the opposite of good. *eyebleach*

    Well, was it at least one of those manly weighted ones?

    Darryl/Frannie may have been around then. A fast perusal of an Sept episode reminds me that was also around the time of Holden's accident in NY.

    I can't speak for nonCBS shows, but in general, I believe the Friday cliffhanger was more valued in general 30-some years (or more) ago. I can't recall specific climaxes though. I thought Paul shot James in March (for whatever reason). I do believe Marland probably believed on them more than average though. I also believe he pushed the idea of building up the show's anniversary, which may have been unique.

    And Holden and Caleb had Julie in common.

    Re : Tom and Margo--I don't know....they all have their time and place. The problem I have with HBS and Holmes is that they both grew stale in the role over time. (I mean by '88, I was begging Barbara to slap the crap out of HBS' sanctimonious face. And Holmes could've been replaced anytime before the turn of the century...) I actually like Dolan the best. Marx as Tom probably had a better range and just "fit" who Tom was as a character the most (if that makes sense).

    I don't care why they remembered the Dusty/John connection, all I care about is that John freed Jack from that Horror forever, and gave CarJack their HEA. If John and Margo had any kind of moments during LB's return, they were probably group scenes centered on Chris' surgery. Or bleepin' Katie...because....well, Katie. RME

    No to Seth being recast. I love Steve Basset. As a Caleb recast--maybe. But, as I've been told, there were too many Snyders on anyway. Aahhhh...a properly recast Brad? (one who wasn't suddenly younger than Jack) OMG---can you imagine a Brad/Barbara affair with Wally and CZ?? Don't even try selling Brown as Nikki! FCOL, she was supposed to be a decade younger than Jack. And yes. Mr Julie Pinson showed up in ATWT'S last month's creatively cast as some old bf wannabe of Janet's.
