  1. This is interesting, because another actress very briefly played Maria prior to Eva LaRue. She was Trevor's doctor.
  2. +1 For his next trick, he's going to close his eyes and proclaim, "You can't see me," so the press and his base will question, "Where'd he go?" Eyes are wider open than you think in this sadistic game of peek-a-boo. You all are trying to "logic" a game of feelings. (sic)
  3. I was headed home from work, thinking I might catch the last 15 minutes of the ceremony. While waiting at a traffic light, something inside me said, "This is her night. You better get home." Sure enough. A very emotional moment; this is what awards shows are supposed to do. And I agree, Daytime Emmys started racing downhill after that.
  4. I would hardly say Bianca's custody trial on AMC had little historical impact. It freed Erica up as a character to pursue Dimitri and gad about town with little repercussion. And if they needed Mama Erica, they brought Bianca in from Seattle right on cue.
  5. I think that was one of Lucci's problems in trying to get that Emmy. She always had her "scene." I could even smell it coming. He**, I probably smelled it when I saw WOTY too. But she never got the storyline to see it through to a win. Until she did...and even though I had a feeling that year; it was more about competition than Lucci's actual work.
  6. So Much can be said about this scene. AMC at its finest and in probably its last good era. The beauty of the scene is how layered it is. Not only are we watching the interweaving of several "current" storylines in her speech, but you are also watching some deep cracks in the history of the character of Erica Kane emerge and be exposed to the light. Lucci is laying it bare; all of the subtext, the nuance. And on top of it...she's high as a kite. "Hold my hand...I'll catch you." So much more than Dmitri and the scaffolding there. Why Lucci didn't win the Emmy for this scene alone is beyond me...it spoke volumes about her ability to inhabit this character. And the whole gang is there, even Enid Nelson and Marian Colby, because Broderick was attempt to reinstate the "community" of Pine Valley. Broderick was head writing the show then, but do we know who actually wrote this wonderful "scene?"
  7. Why do they wanna "go hard" on guest stars? I know the original run had guest stars but this isn't Will and Grace. (and for that matter, they can quit over there too; that's why their original run JTSed.)
  8. This is all so random. I love it. 😛
  9. TBH, Star's SATC was boring. I remember watching the first few episodes of the first season and thinking, "Meh." Sometimes I think SATC is overrated. We liked it, because they were talking about things on TV no one else on TV was talking about like "funky spunk" and "vibrators." I was all in on Heroes through the first season. I should've known after that weak-ass finale, but I hung in another two years. I was one of those, "it's about to get better" people. I was so burned I couldn't hang for the reboot. Such a shame. I think another one that saddened me was Designing Women. It just never recovered from losing Delta and Jean. Even though Delta's zaniness was fun, Charlene was really the "heart" of the show, and I really enjoyed Jan Hook's Carlene, but we just didn't have that investment. I'll always be interested to see how the show might have fared if we had jumped right into BJ (Judith Ivey) instead of Julia Duffy's Allison. I did like BJ, even if they had a hard time differentiating her from Julia.
  10. If this doesn't follow the original, we will hate it. If it does follow the original, why?
