  1. I would argue that Don was A-level in the mid-to-late 70s, both before and during the time he was paired with Marlena -- Jed Allan was somewhat of a fixture in those Daytime TV fan polls. But he was mostly an afterthought once he and Marlena broke up. I thought he had great chemistry with Suzanne Rogers for the brief time they were paired, and also with Ann-Marie Martin's Gwen Davies. But yes, CC was such a great role for him, being fired by DAYS worked out for the best.
  2. I think they did a pretty good job of keeping Donna's edge throughout her relationship with Michael. Maybe that's more of a credit to Anna Stuart than the writers, since Philece Sampler's Donna was a whimpering, simpering mess. Sadly, Donna mellowed too much (for me) when paired with Matt.
  3. I thought Josh paired pretty well with Catherine Mary Stewart's Kayla, thought that seems so odd to say now that he's played Kayla's brother for so long.
  4. That entire week of shows was riveting to me as a teen. I had no idea who the Strangler was so the suspense was great, I loved Patty Weaver and the songs she debuted (I even bought her album) and the costumes and production were pretty cool. Only negative was the Melinda Fee was so miscast as Mary Anderson that I didn't care what happened to her.
  5. My sense with Joshua Fallon was the the show was trying really hard to position him as the new leading man, so they played him heavily with their most popular stars. He also got a fair amount of screen time with Julie, for rather contrived story reasons. A lot of people here like him, but I found him very off-putting. (He was a fair sight better than the next guy in the role, however.)
  6. Was the remodel acknowledged on screen? I hate when a set is completely overhauled and the characters don't seem to notice.
  7. I really liked her energy, which was completely different than anyone else on the show, and I am sad to see her leave. I hope she will be back sooner rather than later (and I hope the same for Suzanne Rogers).
  8. I always thought Marci was basically auditioning for indie film projects in her first DOOL stint. She appears to have given up on that ambition and has adopted a more traditional soap acting approach. I think she's overdoing it a bit at this point ... but that may just be my reaction to how differently she's playing it.
  9. Some really incredible black actors were on the show during this brief period. Too bad the writing sucked.
  10. Isn't that Giancarlo Esposito as the young criminal?
  11. True, but Marlena started off with much higher intelligence than them, so the fall was steeper.
  12. That's why I can't get as upset as others at the recent Susan/Kristen prominence -- soon enough, the entire storyline will disappear for three weeks or so.
  13. Who knew that she dated Burt Reynolds? And that ol' Burt was a lying liar who always lied?
  14. Beverlee McKinsey's son Scott has posted a Canadian TV interview his mother did just after leaving Texas. It really is quite amazing. It's on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/scottmckinsey
