    I would hope Will was versatile. :)

    if they need someone to play Paul....I'm available. 


    What the Kassie DePaiva... fall back, sir. 😋


    You know, if y'all are craving sexy gay guys, there are MUCH better options than Days of Our Lives. I've never really been excited by ANY romantic soap couple, *couples* aren't my thing (unless we're talking Viki and Dorian), so I'm used to being bored.

    A favorite recast of a character whose previous portrayal I actually really liked? Gina Tognoni as Dinah on GL. Granted, there had been a gap after Wendy Moniz left.


    I was going to say both Gina AND Wendy. But in the case of Wendy (like so many others, e.g., Robin Strasser), she's a favorite who happened to be a recast when I had no prior viewing experience of her predecessor. I absolutely adored Strasser on OLTL, but it would be unfair of me to declare that she's the best Dorian or I enjoyed her performance more than the ladies before her when I only have a couple of clips to compare.

  3. These are women of a certain age who don't want to fry what thinning hair they have left. An actor like Robin wouldn't go on set if she wasn't satisfied with her look. I think all involved could have benefitted from a camera test. Perhaps they made adjustments once they saw the wig under the lights.

    I just want "The View" cancelled.


    Just like when folks wish cancellation upon the soaps, I say hope for improvement or just ignore the show altogether. No matter how annoying the talking heads are, the show employs a bunch of people behind the scenes (like my friend's wife, mother of their young child).

  5. Buzzr is a regular part of my latenight TV viewing. Brenda Dickson was in a couple of episodes of Match Game the other night. Richard gave Gene the whole rundown of her storyline with Phillip and Kay.


    I also enjoy What's My Line? It's so charming to me how formal the show is with the tuxedos and gowns. Being on television was a big deal in those early years, when people still got dressed to go shopping downtown or to take a flight. It's also really sobering to watch the episodes right after the deaths of Fred Allen and Dorothy Kilgallen.



  6. We have an old Fifteen thread buried somewhere around here. I was a huge fan, appointment TV for me Sunday evenings after church. Of course Brooke was my favourite character and I was heartbroken when she didn't return for season 3 and we got this basic Brooke bitch replacement who had a bratty little brother.


    I don't know if they're still available, but I'm pretty sure the entire series was up on iTunes.


    I met Ryan Reynolds at a screening of Van Wilder in D.C. and couldn't help but mention Fifteen. We had such fun mocking the accents when I was in 7th grade.

    Pretty rare footage of a 60 Minutes piece on the pre-production of Neil Simon's play, God's Favorite. 


    @Vee @SFK @EricMontreal22




    Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the piece. Read the Wiki where it's mentioned that Simon's wife's early death brought about his exploration of more serious issues in his plays. Did you watch Fosse/Verdon? I don't think we even have a thread about it here. At any rate, I highly recommend it and the Verdon-Fosses' relationship with the Simons is rather prominently featured.

    So Tara was originally named Terry and Amy was originally Carol.

    The name changes seem to be last minute.

    I wonder why Agnes had a change of heart with those two names?


    Could be wrong, but I assumed it was a network decision/suggestion. Not unlike the Parkhursts and the Corbys becoming the Carringtons and the Colbys.

    Honey, if you show an effort of posting that 1977 episode I will post the full script.

    Yes, that is Erica Kane's first scene (not sure why her name, or Mona's and Nick's, isn't on the cover).

    Erica's name isn't on the script cover because she didn't appear in the first episode on January, 5. She made her debut in the eighth episode, which would have been Wednesday, the 14th.

    Hearing the name Dimitri Merrick on a recent GH episode made me nostalgic for when he arrived on AMC, and that lead me to thinking about how that show slowly phased him out.


    If you watched AMC in the early 1990’s, Edmund and Dimitri were huge characters that were always front burner.  An entire family backstory, a significant set (Wildwind), and romantic pairings with important veterans of their shows (Erica and Brooke). But then kind of suddenly they were not.  They just slowly phased them out completely.


    These were not flash in the pan characters, but instead kind of discarded after relatively short periods of importance in the grand scheme of things on their shows.


    Other examples?


    What was said about Dimitri?

  11. I've got Llanview and Pine Valley from the '90s, they were on postcards sold at Disney. When I was little in the '80s, they had a big poster-sized one of PV at my mom's office. I met another lady who'd managed to hold onto one of those '80s maps as well, in hard plastic on her office desk.
