  1. I was barely watching at the time, but I am still unsure of which was more disgusting. Marina with her godfather Mallet or Marina with the man who could have been her father, Alan-Michael? Both were creepy on a level the show rarely got to.
  2. I was going to link that exact scene with Nadine and David. This is one of my favorites. I know 1993 was not as good as the two years before it in general, but the scripts were truly brilliant stuff. Another favorite is the conversation between Ross and Ed from fall of 92.
  3. Honestly, the country club scenes are great, but these might be even better. Bev starts out afraid of what Roger might do then absolutely lowers the boom on him when she confronts him about his affair with Mindy. When she starts revealing her hand and Roger goes from confident to realizing just how little leverage he really has, it's worth every penny. What a master class by two legends. Edit: By the way, "I'm betting the farm on it." might be one of my favorite GL lines ever.
  4. Speaking of Lucille Wexler, has anyone found online the scene in which she dies by falling on a letter opener? Have not been able to find that one.
  5. The 2002 theme wasn't bad per se, but it was a poor man's "Hold on to Love." I would have preferred that they updated that theme compared to what we got. But we can all agree that it's better than Rick Rhodes' 2003 atrocity.
  6. My favorite part of the 1990s "Hold on to Love" theme was its use as incidental music on the show. I don't think anyone used their theme music quite as effectively as GL. You already knew you were watching an important or sentimental scene when it came on. This one is my favorite, starting about 1:37.
  7. I may have laughed a bit too hard at that one. Thank you for that.
  8. I still miss GL, just not the Peapack shell of a soap it became. Thank God for Youtube.
  9. Maureen's death was such a long-term tragedy and I wish that more story would have come out of it so it didn't seem like such a waste, but damn was that week of shows brilliant. Knowing what came after this, maybe it was better for Maureen to go out this way. Ghost Maureen propping up Danny and Michelle was bad enough. Also, I don't think Victor Miller and Michael Conforti get enough credit for the uptick in quality in 1997. Besides the whole Amanda reveal, early 1997 was really quite good. Shame it didn't last very long.
  10. Who killed Diane Ballard? On GL This one was great because it really was a culmination of years worth of story. Diane had the dirt on everything that Alan had been up to for years and had made enemies with pretty much the entire town so when she turned up dead, it played fairly organically. The same thing with the "Who shot Roger?" story. It really was a long time coming. The only terrible part was the ending with Fake Billy confessing to the whole thing. It seemed rushed or changed at some point. I wonder if it was because Nancy Curlee knew she would be leaving and wanted to wrap it up. The Jean Weatheril mystery was good too. I'm looking forward to reviewing it with the YouTube channel clips someone is posting.
  11. Love GL using the Donna Summer/Barbara Streisand duet "No More Tears (Enough is Enough) as the backing music to Roger, in an eerie clown costume, chasing Rita through the carnival Hall of mirrors in 1979. Then there was the montage at the end of the 1992 blackout with" Round Midnight" by Linda Rondstat.
  12. God, could Jerry verDorn nail a speech or what? 1993 had its ups and downs, but it certainly had some of the best scriptwriting of the entire run of the show. I'd say that soaps have outsourced all of its good writing period to primetime and cable TV and that is certainly the main problem. Who would want to watch the current shows when Game of Thrones (or insert your favorite drama) is far better written and has more intriguing drama? Even if you have to be a masochist to watch GOT. (I'm stuck on the 3rd season. I may not make it longer.) Also, I would not have wanted Bridget and David together. I agree with the above post that said the chemistry between the actors was more brother/sister. Gilly and A-M? That's more like it.
  13. I can't wait until this channel gets further into 1991. I have heard about the Jean Weatheril whodunit, but have never seen anything except the ending and Daniel holding Holly hostage.
  14. Wasn't it rumored that Jenna was killed off because Fiona Hutchinson spoke out about the poor handling of Michael Zaslow? I remember hearing about that.
