  1. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    None of Conner's men really suited her. At least Patrick Tovatt was a good actor, but the age difference was creepy. The actor who played Mark Kasnoff was terrible, a real graduate of the "Lee Majors School of Acting". Although they danced around it, they never went with a Connor/Kirk pairing , which would have been great, especially in Lucinda's storyline orbit.
  2. Remember on ATWT when Frannie Hughes thought that Daryl Crawford was trying to kill her? In a great location shoot, the two are alone on a moving ski transport, suspended over a mountain, with Frannie scared to death. A classic scene..
  3. I loved that storyline. There were some great characters, including Millicent, Nathan Forbes, Reverend Trask (wait till you see how HE ends up!), and of course Angelique. The writers did a neat job of tying everything up before Victoria returned to the present. Alexandra Moltke was not a great actress, but she had that special quality, which made her a great "damsel in distress". They tried to replace her twice, but neither recast lasted very long. Kathry Leigh Scott assumed the heroine mantel after AM left, but even though I loved KLS, she never captured that vulnerable quality that Alexandra had.
  4. As The World Turns Discussion Thread

    Wow, I had totally forgotten that Shannon's storyline on ATWT began with her living with John Dixon. I must have blocked that out, although they had a fun chemistry to them.
  5. Dark Shadows

    While I loved Kathryn Leigh Scott, I feel her version of the main victim/heroine was not as good as Alexandra Moltke. It has nothing to do with acting (I actually think KLS is a much better actress). AM just had that vulnerable quality that the camera just loved.
  6. So, what if he just personally felt that homosexuality was morally wrong?
  7. Actually, it was my least-favorite Craig, Jon Lindstrom.
  8. Morrison had a nervous energy that just made him stand out in his role. He was part bad-boy too, which was part of his appeal. Graham Winton (Caleb Pt.2) played Caleb as too much of a nice guy to be effective (although I must say Ive searched high and low for his shirtless scene with Julie while they were supposedly honeymooning in Paris)
  9. Although the Ridge/Bridget story remains the all-time most disgusting story on soaps, a close runner-up has to be ATWT's Craig Montgomery sleeping with Danielle Andropolous, who he once thought was his daughter, and raised for a time. Kudos to the poster who mentioned having a 14-year-old actor on ATWT involved in a sex scene with his much-older co-star. Who green-lights things like that? For just plain old campy bad taste, mention must be made of Sunset Beach and the infamous Turkey Baster.
  10. When Lisa was getting married yet again, snarky wedding guest Lucinda Walsh shrieked "Oh my God, she's wearing white!"
  11. I have mixed feelings about Jennifer's death on ATWT. On the one hand, she was Barbara's daughter and tied to most of the character's on the canvas. On the other hand, she had possibly the best soap death scenes I've ever witnessed.
  12. My favorite was the Austin Peck/Terri Colombino circus at ATWT. Supposedly, Terri's husband was very popular with the World Turns cast, so Peck was ostracized when the affair leaked out. Michael Park was supposed to have despised Peck, not just for the affair, but also his amateurish "acting".
  13. The Doctors

    Whatever happened to David O'Brien? Was he ever in anything else besides The Doctors? Was he considered the lead male character on the show?
  14. Recasts

    Sorry, but two big no-nos on the list for me. Hunt Block's turning of Craig Montgomery from a complex, tortured character into a one-note cartoon is not my idea of great recasting. Similarly, Scott Holroyd made Paul Ryan into a many-layered son of Stenbeck, as opposed to Howarth, who had just two expresions during his whole run: The Blank Stare and The Blubbering Explosion.
  15. At what point can you find Edge Of Night episodes? My earliest memory of the show is when someone (Mike Karrs wife?) ran outside and was hit by a car. Then I remember a character named Orrin Hillyer who married someone who was a double for his late wife. But when I really started paying attention was when Nicole Travis appeared on the scene and the great Stephanie Martin Murder Mystery happened. I LOVED that storyline, but I guess all video traces of it are nowhere to be found?
