  1. Geraldine Page on a soap would have been everything. Somebody like Sandy Dennis would have been great too, but they were both two "big" I guess for any of them. Can someone point me towards where I can see Kim Hunter on The Edge of Night?
  2. Everything about this is brilliant.
  3. Happy 22nd anniversary to this glorious moment!
  4. She came back for one of the anniversaries too- either the 25th or the 30th. It's the one where they also brought back Mark, Donna, Chuck, Daisy, Benny, Cecily, Nina, etc and they had a party at the Martin house. I loved them and their wedding at the time. I'm sure it was probably irritating to some how prominent they became in such a short amount of time, but they were so good together at the time. I still hate how they killed Edmund off for no reason.
  5. I think Jason threw him off the roof of GH. Like most Guza era villains, the Manny saga went on forever. In addition to the train wreck antics, there was also when he shot up the PCPD, shooting Sam (and I think Lucky too at some point), holding all the women in town hostage, and some absurd plot point involving him escaping out of custody on a plane. It was just all ridiculous. It had nothing to do with actors and everything to do with the fact that Jason and Sonny always had to be the "good" guys. Just skimming through that train wreck clip remind me of how horrendous that era of the show was. Reese!, Skye and Tracy fighting over Luke, Manny, Courtney, Sonny and Jason 24/7. I don't even remember that Jesse dude that I guess is with Maxie. This was all right after Nikolas's look a like raped Emily and that horrible story with the Corinthos children, Michael "dying", and then him supposedly killing AJ with a pillow. I'll admit that I mostly still really liked GH up until around this era. This is around the time it really started pissing me off. I think we also had the replacement Felicia at this point because Brian Frons and JFP had decided Kristina Wagner was "matronly" and ran her off the show. I did remind me though that both Julie Berman and Laura Wright did hit the ground running as Lulu and Carly. Berman definitely got...less impressive as time went on and Wright has gotten kind of lazy but, at the time, they both were doing very well right out of the gate.
  6. I barely remember the specifics of his introduction but he was part of some mob family that came to Port Charles to kill Sonny and Jason. That never happened obviously and then at some point he became obsessed with Sam. At some point after all this, he had an identical twin brother show up who was a priest and was there during the hostage crisis.
  7. It was something to do with Liz and Lucky's wedding I think. Maybe they were all going to a party afterwards? It just also happened to be the train that Sam and Jason were on and Manny showed up to stalk Sam. Then somehow Carly escaped from jail or the psychiatric hospital and also ended up on the same [!@#$%^&*] train. None of it ever made sense.
  8. Whether she made decision to kill Frankie or not, she is the one that started the serial killer story and the one that conducted the focus group that lead to her being murdered. I loved Frankie but I'm not going to sit here and say that that single event brought down Another World. However, it certainly didn't help things, especially the way the death ended up playing out. I don't think people would have such an issue all these years later if it hadn't played out it in such a demeaning and crass way. Wasn't JFP there when Justine happened and when Ryan was killed? If so, she deserves to be called out for those too cause those stories didn't help things either. And sorry to anyone who enjoyed John and Felicia but that was rubbish too. I can't speak for GL but she absolutely deserves all the heat she gets for Alan and Georgie. I still don't know why either one of those happened. I didn't like it but I get why they killed Tony. I think killing Emily was shortsighted but whatever. There was zero reason for Alan and Georgie. I feel like they killed Georgie only so they could have Spinelli all for Maxie and so Maxie could humiliate Felicia. I'm also going to say that I grew really tired of her yearly events on GH. The Port Charles Hotel fire was good. Once it became a yearly thing, it was tired. There were just so many of them- the train crash with Alexis having Molly, the monkey virus with Holly the bio-terrorist, the hostage crisis, the one where someone swallowed toxic balls, the carnival with drunk Edward, the ball where Diego killed Emily. It was just like enough after a while and they never gave us any good long term stories. I agree with @titan1978 that's there definitely a pattern in the women that she dislikes or lets be humiliated on her shows- Sharlene and Frankie on AW. Cassie on OLTL. Laura, Felicia, Bobbie, Georgie, and Emily on GH. I do think she's unfairly blamed for letting Sonny, Jason, Carly, and the mob take over GH, as well things like Luke being a drunk deadbeat or the dismantling Quartermaines. That stuff was already in motion before she got there. She just let them continue and take over the show.
  9. This has been posted many, many times but I'll never get over it. Who hired him and then let this air on GH whew!

      The look on Finola's face.

  10. Vee mentioned Geraldine Page being in the pilot for Loving, but does anyone know how she ended up in the pilot in the first place? I'm sure a job was a job and it did premiere as a TV movie but it's fascinating to me that she was in it. I don't think she had any history with soaps before that so I'm wondering if there was some connection behind it, especially since she was still getting good parts in films and on Broadway at the time. Also, I have heaps of 1992 and 1993 I finally got around to converting that I can upload in the next week or so if people are interested in that time frame of the show.
  11. I don't remember him trashing them till after the "Laura wakes up" story either. That was also around the same time that was he was fully in on the relationship with Tracy and that they brought back Robert and Holly and when he first met Anna. That all seem to lead to Tony Geary deciding Luke needed to regress back into the old days where he was just out for money and could just pick up and take off with Robert. Those events- along with bad writing and him changing his mind on L&L- lead to the next decade of mediocre to bad stories. Things like Ethan, him running over Jake, him fooling around with Anna and various hookers, and the idea that he was playing same time next year with Holly for all of the 80s and 90s. None of it meshed with what we had seen on the screen and was clearly just driven by him chasing after some version of Luke that didn't exist except in his mind. His final story where it was obviously suppose to be Bill Eckert but either him or Ron got mad and it changed is another example. At this point in time, I honestly feel like they should have just killed him off during that story where he got shot him with the poison bullet. That I think would have been a fitting end for him. Instead, I think that lead into yet another "adventure" where Luke and Holly/Tracy/Anna/Laura (I can't remember which one it was at this point) ran around the world chasing some mystery person. It just got absurd, at least to me. I admit that I found Luke and Tracy amusing at the beginning at when they were just using each other and he was really after Skye. They never should have let them become a real legitimate couple but that's what Tony Geary wanted I guess. At some point too, Tony Geary clearly decided that he was only going to "show up" in scenes or stories with people he deemed worthy of him. Go back and watch scenes of how lazy he acts in scenes with people like Greg Vaughan and Emme Rylan vs. how he acted in scenes with people like Jane Elliot, Jackie Zeman, Jonathan Jackson, and the other GH vets. It's night and day. I agree that Laura really suffered from losing all of her support. Even now, I feel like Laura has no support outside of Lulu. Does Laura have any friends? Even if we don't see them onscreen together, you can at least assume people like Felicia & Lucy and Felicia & Anna are still friends. Who are Laura's friends? I also agree that Luke also suffered from nobody calling him out ever, outside of Bobbie. At a certain point in time, characters like Lucy, Sonny, and Alexis would have done it but that all faded over time. When he started to turn dark, they definitely could have used like Mary Mae or Tiffany to tell him to think about Laura's feelings. Obviously they weren't options, but they could have had it be someone like Monica or even Bobbie. That was definitely a missing beat, even if the story was still good and Luke going down that path was a compelling at the time. Like most GH stories, it didn't start to fall apart till way later. This went back to before he started trashing Luke & Laura, but the constant need for him to have a new love interest was also I think damaging to him in the long run. Him being with like Holly, Tracy, and Skye were one thing, but them trying to pair him with Felicia and Anna was just so wrong.
  12. Wow, I haven't seen the murders storyline I guess since it aired. My family watched Loving but I don't remember many of the stories so these old episodes and summaries are really fun. I remember all the AMC characters and then of course people like Stacey, Ava, Ally, Gwyn, and all them but it's cool to see people and characters I'd forgotten about. It's sad it never took off like it should have because it was definitely at leas interesting and had a great group of characters and actors. Honestly, other than the murders, the only storylines that I really remember are Faison chasing Jeremy and Ava around Universal Studios, Jeremy and Ceara moving to Corinth (with Ceara promptly getting shot and killed), and that storyline that crossed over with AMC where Dinah Lee was running away from her abusive ex-boyfriend and stayed at Myrtle's. I think Trevor and Jack from AMC also appeared on Loving at some point too? Idk. I loved Lisa Peluso on the last few years of Another World and when she was randomly on OLTL for a hot minute. What ever happened to her?
  13. Like Vee, I grew up on that era of AMC. He was so charming and I loved him with both Maria and Brooke. The second go around with both couples, especially when Maria returned, wasn't the same but at their height, Edmund and Maria were magic together. I even loved him in the sillier stories like the Eduardo story with Phoebe and Brooke that Ron Carlivati mentioned. I still hate the way he was just killed off like it was nothing and in such a crass and unceremonious way. I'm sad for Eva, their daughter, their AMC cast mates, and anyone who loved him.
  14. I'm sorry but what. I know Europeans have a reputation for this but I assure you that the majority of them bathe on a regular basis. Also, how frequently they bathe most likely has no bearing on this situation.
  15. No. It's summer literally everywhere in the South Hemisphere and that hasn't done anything from stopping it form spreading. African countries are way more prepared for pandemics in general and a lot of them have measures in place to deal with things like this. There's also the fact that the case number will probably go up in certain countries as more people travel and get tested.
  16. Tom Hanks was walking around Sydney all last week and hanging around at the beaches (he was literally like 3 KM from my home sigh) before he went to the Gold Coast, so I'm sure everyone here is about to be in a state of panic.
  17. Thanks Mostly people like Pelosi because she's the only one standing up to Trump, or least she's the only one who makes it onto the news. A lot of people feel like she's the one stopping things (like getting involved with Iran for example) that would end up effecting other countries. But yes, Obama and Clinton are *extremely* well liked, along with Biden mostly. My aunt and grandmother watch RT a lot and I think RT has actually cooled some on Trump lately lol. He's no longer "darling Trump" or "beautiful Trump" but it's still usually positive. Sanders gets a lot of praise on RT too, which adds to my impression that he's a grifter and shady tbh.
  18. So is it over for Sanders? Or does he have a path? Twitter is full of people shouting at each other that it's "not over" for Sanders and that they're taking this all the way to the convention, whatever that means. CNN is basically saying that Biden is going to be the nominee and for Sanders and Warren to give it up so that everyone can unite to take on Trump. Not really sure what the exact answer is here. Also, fwiw, I see a lot of both Trump and Sanders supporters claiming that the rest of the worlds hates Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons, the Obamas, and the Bidens which is ummm, not true lol. I like all of them quite a bit- especially Michelle Obama and Nancy Pelosi- and so do most of the people I know both here in Australia and back in South Africa. The same however can't be said of Trump or Sanders themselves. I don't know anyone who has a favourable opinion of them.
  19. 🤣 But seriously...who is this man's fanbase? Loud kids on Twitter? If I had a vote, I think I'd probably go for Warren, but Joe Biden seems like an honest, decent, good man. Sanders reminds me all the grifter politicians in South Africa that ran in every election when I was a kid who talked a lot but had no means of backing up anything they said. But besides that, Biden is obviously turning out the vote and has the passion and support from everyone he needs to hopefully take down Trump. I don't get the whining from Sanders supporters. I thought the most important thing was beating Trump but I guess for some of them it's not.
  20. I'm still confused about his "large coalition" that I hear about on Twitter and the news. All the Americans living aboard and in the US that I know are for Warren or Biden.
  21. I know it's not really my place to say, but I'm watching this on CNN international and I didn't like Sanders' supporters booing Biden and other Democrats whenever they were mentioned. The woman who I assume is Sanders' wife smiling and almost laughing every time it happened was also a really bad look, at least to me. I know Australian politics are almost never classy either so I don't have much room to talk, but how is anyone suppose to beat Trump when some of these people are behaving like that?
  22. I don't have any real clue on how this all really works in the US, but CNN basically said Biden and the Democrats want Warren and Klobuchar to stay in through Tuesday because they'll block Sanders from winning their home states and they'll keep him from running the table in other places. Also speaking as someone who grew up around "socialism" and is probably more liberal/left than most of the people here, I'll say I do not understand the Sanders thing at all or why he's some sort saint to some of these people. I grew up in places where we had socialised medicine and all those things and I'm definitely to the left, but he just seems like a con artist to me. No offense to the US, but I don't ever see you guys getting all the things he's promising because the US isn't made that way. Anyway, can someone explain to me his loud rabid fanbase?
  23. I'm completely baffled by whatever is that is happening and why this is important at all?
  24. I got to see the first three episodes at a press thing and it's good stuff. I won't spoil anything too much but I was really pleased. I thought they really got going fast and it wasn't bogged down in nostalgia and fan service right from the bat except for two minor things. Patrick Stewart slipped back into the role really easily. Also, the plot is going somewhere I totally wasn't expected and draws on TNG history in a very clever way. FWIW, also, Seven isn't in it till the 4th episode and Riker, Deanna, and aren't in it till at least the 5th or 6th episode, so it definitely has time to breathe and gives Picard and the new crew a chance to shine before the old crew joins in.
  25. Hope you and your family are staying safe and are out of any direct danger. I'm on the beach in Sydney and it's been unbearably hot here the past few weeks. The wind, air quality, and smoke are of course horrendous. How are the conditions where you are?
