  1. She rips off whatever's hot at the moment, so yes, today it would be a Chicago Fire/Med/PD theme. A few years ago, it would be flash-forwards and backwards a la This Is Us. A few years before that, probably zombies to ride on the coattails of The Walking Dead.
  2. Wow, I never thought I'd see this again ... the infamous scene where Linda takes Mike to bed to prove to him that he's a "real man." It plays on a whole different level for me know that I know Wesley Eure is gay.
  3. I agree that they took Cecile too far over the top; the queen bit was ridiculous. However, Nancy Frangione was so good with comedic elements that I forgave it. Every interaction she has in this episode -- with Rachel, Ada and Donna -- are pure gold. I'd love to see the next episode with her and Vicky getting into it. Also, this reminds that as increasingly goofy as the Red Swan storyline got, I was thrilled that it got Vicky Wyndham so much air time. Her scene with Carmen Duncan, even though it wasn't the real Iris, was layered with meaning and emotion.
  4. To be fair, the show asked viewers to make the same leap in 1984, when Tony/Andre and Roman both wore masks that also magically altered their heights, body types and voices.
  5. Aww, I always liked Neil, from his early days as somewhat of a cad to his star-crossed romance with Liz. Once Gloria Loring left, it seems the writers lost interest in him, except for the ridiculous affair with Maggie and the reveal that Sarah is his daughter. He was ushered off the canvas soon after that, and by that point, I didn't much miss him.
  6. That's now how I remember it, though it could be my memory that's faulty. I remember Mac and Iris sitting together in the hospital, and Mac overcome with joy at the birth of Amanda, and just blurting out how happy he is to finally have a daughter.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.)
  12. Was the remodel acknowledged on screen? I hate when a set is completely overhauled and the characters don't seem to notice.
  13. 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).
  14. 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.
