  1. AMC Tribute Thread

    I enjoyed Trevor. He was different than most men in soaps period. He did tend to be self-righteous once he became a lawyer. Of course, Collins and Kiberd couldn't stand one another.

    How oddly specific! Maaaarrrry.

    Because OLTL#1 Fan wanted to know... http://www.npr.org/2017/06/29/534916080/ohio-town-struggles-to-afford-life-saving-drug-for-opioid-overdoses This is the town I grew up next to and lived in for 22 years so my children could attend a progressive school there. This is also the town JD Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy, grew up in and writes about in that book. This is the town and surrounding area where a Democrat has not won the Presidential election since Kennedy. This is the town where I walked the streets for Obama in '08, and we came 137 votes shy of securing victory. There are many many good people there who outweigh the "bad;" so many struggling. So many just looking for ways to turn it around. The problem is very real...from all sides...

    Aliki Prince was recast, because he was "too comedic" and they wanted to go in a more serious direction. I don't think he was around for much longer after this episode. Interestingly enough, both he and Dondre Whitfield were on Cosby. Of course, Dondre was recurring as Vanessa's Robert. I do not remember when Irene Ng left, but I did like her quite a bit. Obviously green, but not in a 'bad" way. I liked first Brian too, (Greg Gordon?) but given the direction that character went, I can see why they went with Borlenghi. The first actor had a more clean-cut look, and it made more sense for Borlenghi to be Trask's brother, Brian. This all takes me back.

    "He fired the first shot" "they can dish it, but they can't take it" just some thoughts...

    I'm gonna go old school, because it came to mind: Word. Bottom line is racism. Pure and simple. How do you get a blue collar white West Virginian to believe that SOMEONE ELSE is the enemy that is taking jobs and tax money from you? Blame the black man or the welfare queen or the Mexicans. The reality is there has been such a long-seated plan very carefully designed by Those in Power (i.e. Rich White Men) to pit the Poor against one another. It is all very effective, because it keeps us living in fear of the Other.

    Actually, this is a little more like my child broke it, and even though I didn't break it, I'm still gonna have to pay for it.
  12. "Roseanne" revival in the works

    To me, this is what Roseanne, the show, did best. Two of my other favorite (similar) moments: 1. Jackie's phone call to the aunt about her father's death. "Dad's Dead!" This one is shown a lot, but it is a classic example of why Metcalf has all the Emmys and was so beloved. 2. The end of the episode where DJ wouldn't kiss the black girl. Roseanne and Jackie are at The Lunch Box, and a Big Black Man comes to the door. Roseanne acts as if they are closing, but eventually lets him in. The man turns out to be the little girl's father, and wants to discuss DJ and his little girl. After he leaves, Roseanne actually locks the door, pulls down the shade and says to Jackie, "We're not racist; are we?" Roll credits. So simple; so powerful, and yet left the audience to "figure it out."

    Omigosh! I remember these promos. Fascinating People...Fascinating Lives.. And David Canary? Sheer genius. For the first six months I watched the show, I actually believed twins were playing the role. After all, they showed him as both Adam and Stuart in the opening pictures... She was Laurie, and she was awful, and I can't believe how she has broken out. That whole teen scene, with Ridings as JR, and Amanda Seyfried (who I also can't believe broke out, but has grown in her abilities) was such a snore. Remember the cyber messaging crap? However, this was very sweet regarding being starstruck by Kelly.
