  1. Thanks! I'd completely forgotten that. And the fact there was another Tad. And thank goodness Marland didn't feel forced to turn every villain into a romantic lead. They'd get laid, but they were always skunks.
  2. He fell into wet cement and became entombed in a building foundation. Is that him with Sierra in one of those gifs?
  3. Yep. I think with a stronger actor playing Bryant, the Craig/Bryant dynamic could have played out over years.
  4. I'm too lazy to go back through the thread, but that doesn't even count Paul Leyden and Peyton List ---dated Lesli Kay and Keith Coularis --- married and divorced Cady McClain and Hunt Block --dated Cady McClain and Jon Lindstrom---married Maura West and Scott DeFrietas----married What freaked me out was finding out Kathryn Hays had briefly been married to Glenn Ford.
  5. Hogan Sheffer literally spent back to back summers having characters marooned on the same deserted island. The first summer, Lily and Simon were stranded there (while Rose took over Lily's life and no one realized the real Lily was missing) and the next, Katie went there. (I forget why, exactly...) Sheffer had a knack for recycling his own material. And considering he only lasted five years, is kind of pathetic. And didn't Passanante have rep for killing off legacy children? She killed off Bryant from ATWT, and Morgan from GH. Marland had a real knack for writing teen heroines. There was Laura from GH, Morgan from GL and Lily from ATWT. (And on ATWT, he loved writing the poor little rich girl who found "realness" living on a farm....)
  6. LOL...there aren't any "real" stories on GH. 🤣
  7. Bobbie fainted one day, leading to her diabetes diagnosis. After getting brushed off by Ava, and a pep talk from Franco (about finding love), Scotty (who knew about Bobbie's diagnosis) impulsively asked her to marry him. She turned him down (after he compared her/their relationship to an "old shoe") but seems open to at least dating him again.
  8. James Stenbeck----malice and evil personified. Roger Thorpe---how has he not been mentioned until now? Yes, he was cold and calculating, but there was always this anger bubbling under the surface, ready to snap at any moment. Stephanie Forrester Sheila Carter Vanessa Prentice Lucille Wexler Lilith McKechnie
  9. Obviously, no one's going to agree on a ranking, but to bring out classics like TEON, RH and GL....but include Dark Shadows and Santa Barbara and not have ATWT ? ATWT redefined the genre.
  10. I did too. I thought the entire last week struck just the right balance of nostalgia and reassurance that life goes on.
  11. Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but she and Henry did have a big breakup. She pretended to be pregnant to get Henry back, and was screwing Casey on the side. Katie realized it and agreed to keep her mouth shut because she hated Barbara, but narc'd Vienna out shortly before she and Henry got married. Maybe her last scene was with Chris, but there'd been a fair amount of drama with Henry and Babs, as I recall. (I know Babs was making her wedding dress, a trope ATWT seemed to love to repeat with Carly.)
  12. I wouldn't doubt he was burning out---he'd been in the job 7+ years, and was famous for having his hand in it from the first script to the last. Not to mention, he was working a YEAR ahead in terms of outlines. IIRC, while he'd been continously writing since his acting days---ATWT was the longest he'd ever stuck at one show. And I'll throw it out there---could his "darker" tone have been influenced by the AIDS crisis? As a gay man in the entertainment industry, he had to have friends affected by it.
  13. Kathryn Hays Marie Masters Chris Bernau And I kinda doubt Eileen Fulton or Don Hastings were either. I was kind of surprised to find out that this was only Jon LIndstrom's second nomination.
  14. I didn't believe it either. I thought she was fine in the scenes I saw her in. The reason I remember her is because she had a scene with Maura. But she calls it a firing. https://michaelfairmantv.com/dear-johns-amanda-seyfried-talks-about-her-firing-from-atwt/2010/02/03/
  15. Those dates for Seyfried are wrong. She had a handful of episodes around Christmas 2000 before she was fired. List debuted in December, 2001, IIRC, because it was Lucy's appearance that ended any chance of Craig going with Carly to Paris (when MW's maternity leave kicked off the Spa Storyline). Glendening's tenure is technically correct, but only because she made a handful of appearances late in '10. Otherwise, Lucy had left sometime in '09. Not that i guess it matters----but ATWT didn't really have a direction for Lucy, which is sad, given that she was a legacy child. The casting is all over the place. While a lot of ATWT's recasting the last decade were a menagerie of WTF----two long term recasts have always stumped me. KMH as Emily and Scott Holmes as Tom. I don't care that both were by far the longest tenured actors to play the characters, I still don't get it. KMH lacked any genuine warmth that Melanie Smith had in the role. And after back to back good recasts of Tom in the '80's, Holmes was a return to the sort of old-before-his-time fuddy duddy Tom of the '70's. At times he seemed older than his father Bob.
