  1. Does anyone have any websites which have Loving episode summaries? I am collecting episode summaries for the soaps and for Loving I only have some 1994 and 1995 episode summaries... so I would appreciate any help.
  2. Yes, they really introduced too many of the new characters. And not only new characters, but recasts of important characters... Personally I never liked Gordon Thomson as Mason either or Eileen Davidson as Kelly, so having the two front and center also did not help as they did not feel like the established characters that I loved, but rather new characters. I was okay with Michael Brainard as Ted, but still... I felt like aside from CC, Sophia, Julia and Gina, you did not really have many long running characters...
  3. This was my first American daytime soap opera that I watched in my life. I was a kid back then, but I remember so many moments and scenes that happened... it was so immensely popular in my country. At one point everyone was watching it. Even today, I think you bring up the names C.C. Capwell or Cruz and Eden to my generation of people or older, they will know what it is about. Show was so huge that during the war here, when people were in bomb shelters and without a TV, they were doing recaps over the radio so that people can listen while in the shelter. There is also a funny story related to SB... while they were airing the storyline with Eden in the wheelchair, one old woman here went to the church and gave her priest some money so that he would hold a mass in honor of Eden walking again While I just hated the final years, I must say, I was a huge fan of the early and middle years. It will always be one of my favorite soaps. My love for Robin Wright was born here. I was a huge Mason and Julia fan and still love both Lane Davies and Nancy Lee Grahn. Gina and Keith were so fun to watch as a devilish duo. I still remember Eden's rape and how violet it was. I remember dear sweet Hayley dying after being hit by a car. Crazy Elena Nicholas dropping Eden in those snowy mountains. I remember Mason being punched in the face, falling down behind a couch and once he got up, we had a new Mason actor So many fond memories!
  4. I think I would say Meg Bennett, I guess... simply because that middle year was my favorite... I loved the Shockwave storyline and along side AMC Tornado of 94, this was my favorite soap opera disaster storyline. I did enjoy the start of Antonio/Gabi/Ricardo, I was into the Maria storyline (and one of my favorite cliffhangers is Maria showing up at Ben and Meg's wedding to catch the bouquet). I did hate the Rosario jewels storyline. It was so ridiculous. I felt like the first year of the show, the show was moving so fast, people were coming and going... and then the last year, it was the opposite, IMO.. it slowed down too much and I felt it dragged for too long. Event the baby switch storyline that I loved initially, was just soooo long, slow and repetitive by the time it ended.

  6. As I mentioned in the ATWT history thread, I found some old files on my old computer today. For GL, I found a document which had like tidbits from the radio shows.

  8. So as I came to visit my parents, I found my old computer and in it, I found some of my old soap folders... It is quite fun to see it, as there are some old videos from mid 00's for most soaps, some full episodes etc. But what I completely forgot that I had, was downloads of recaps of ATWT from really early days. I honestly don't know anymore from which site I downloaded that, now it is saved up in a word document that I have.. so I unfortunately I cannot quote a source for this. If someone will recognize it, feel free to let me know. EDIT: In one of the files I managed to find a link. The website does not exist anymore, but I found in the internet archive. https://web.archive.org/web/20090804183917/http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/Studio/5185/index.html If you want it, I can post all that I have. Just so you know what I am talking about... here is 1956.: Based on information contained in a review of As the World Turns in the April 4, 1956 issue of Variety, here is what happened: Chris and Nancy discuss having Chris' father, Will "Grandpa" Hughes, live with them. Pa has been struggling to maintain the family farm in Gilman, OH. Plans are being made for Chris and Nancy's wedding anniversary. Penny is upset that Nancy won't let her go away with Ellen for spring vacation. Ellen, in turn, is upset by her parents' deteriorating marriage. Donald(Hal Studer), a senior at Oakdale High School, is dating a waitress named Janice Turner. Over the next few weeks, ATWT followed the storyline threads established in the premiere episode. The following blurbs, which are paraphrased from TV Guide issues, show the story progress since the opening show.

  9. Ha! For me that is the only one I saw He was good, I enjoyed him from what I can remember.
  10. Yeah, I would say so... looking based on when Luke Perry was on the show (1987 to 1988) and also since I remember this villain Eban Japes, who was there from 1986 to 1987, I guess that's when, it happened. However, I found that Steve left in 1988, so I guess it might have been that, so that we had a part of 1987 and a part of 1988...
  11. I loved Y&R's porn opening. Even when everyone hated it, I found it to be sooo soapy and sexy and glamorous. haha I did start watching Y&R during the porn opening era, so I did not know any other Y&R opening. When Y&R rewarmped the opening to look like it does even today, I really liked it as well because it looked so classy and primetime-ish to me. More suited for that time. Porn opening was more like those campy primetime soaps of the 80s and 90s, while the new one was really like an upgrade. I loved Sunset Beach openings, well actually I loved the music more than the visuals, but still all in all I liked it all.
  12. I watched Loving for only one year, because it only aired for one year in my country before being cancelled. I don't really know which year it was (I guess late 80s), but I really enjoy it. I was a kid back then, but I still remember some scenes. Like when Steve dies after that bank robbery; Ned (played by now late Luke Perry) finding out that his girlfriend (I want to say April was her name?) was a prostitute; I remember Ned's sister Lotty, she dated Curtis Alden, I believe. "Clay" just showed up in town as alive with a different face. And I believe last episode that aired had Ava being kidnapped or something... I cannot remember the details anymore. I remember reading about it in our news papers, how Loving lasted between 1983 and 1995 in the US and I thought.. wow, a show that lasted 12 years?? That was amazing to me. Of course, later I learned it was one of the shorter soaps out there, but still, at that time I was so fascinated and I wanted to know more, but back then I did not have internet to learn more. Now even with internet I was not able to find too much info on Loving, sadly. But oh well.. I have my memories
  13. Anyone have a good GL playlist on Youtube with some 80s/90s episodes to share in PM?
