  1. Tyler McCandless is Air Force, he's introduced in the primetime premiere flying into Andrews where he's met with a hero's welcome. That got me thinking about his reception at the Capitol which would have aired in daytime the following week. I'd only seen clips, but lo and behold, the full episode (dubbed in Italian) was recently uploaded. The sequence on the Capitol steps with your dad begins at 45:17 💛 Here's a picture:
  2. Yes, I remember this well. They showed a portion of it on the AMC 25th anniversary episode of Oprah when they paid tribute to Mrs. Heflin. Listening to Anton here, he sounds like a young Victor Newman.
  3. How interesting, I was just thinking about starting a thread re: long-standing feuds between opposite-sex characters.
  4. I met her after I performed at Awesome Con in D.C. a couple of years ago. Ms. Adams, William Shatner, George Takei and others were doing signings. She was the only person I was interested in meeting. Of course she was there for Lagoon (which had a screening that evening at the AFI in Silver Spring where she was the honored guest). But I knew her best from Capitol and we had a lovely chat about the show and Paula ("She lovvved men"). She was so warm and kind, asking me about myself. I'm very glad that I had the chance to meet her.
  5. It's always a red-letter day when Victoria Wyndham, Susan Lucci, and Joan Collins appear back-to-back in my IG feed. VW even laughed at my lame iris joke re: her garden. She seems to be enjoying a well-earned retirement from television on her beautiful property with her animals. I love her artwork, and I'd gladly make my way up to NY/CT should she ever do a play.
  6. I am so very sorry to hear this. Carmen Duncan was one of those soap actresses I hoped we'd see again, whether she popped up on another soap, daytime or primetime, or even on a Law & Order. I'm so glad that we got that glimpse of her as Lisa on ATWT, but I sure was hoping to see her again. May she rest in peace.
  7. Lately, I've been getting ads that appear on top of posts, literally blocking out people's words. Even if I click on the ad (which I hate to do) or attempt to close it, I can't get rid of it to see what the poster was saying. This is egregious. Anyone else having this problem?

      I have seen some ads being intrusive while trying to post. It's annoying.

  8. I'm pretty sure this was Sloane and Trey's wedding, I've attached a clip from my YouTube page. The limo and military men starting 23 seconds in. The steps are that of the Jefferson Memorial, rather than the Capitol. Capitol was taped in Los Angeles and it was quite a damper on production as it rained and rained while they were on location in D.C. The groom, Trey, was a congressman, while the bride, Sloane, was the daughter of Sen. Mark Denning. I met Marj Dusay (who played Trey's stepmother, Myrna) years ago and she talked about how they filmed the wedding scenes once inside the memorial in studio in L.A. You can see the noticeable change while watching the clip below. God bless your father, I hope you can spot him! By the way I know nothing about the military but I assumed those were Marines in their dress blues I could be wrong please enlighten me lol That sequence starting at 3:08 gives me chills, so stunning with the Washington Monument poised in the background.
  9. I was reminded of this just last night while reading the Post article about B. Smith's husband and his girlfriend. I won't derail the thread, but an interesting story, to say the least: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/lifestyle-guru-b-smith-has-alzheimers-her-husband-has-a-girlfriend-her-fans-arent-having-it/2019/01/28/1a9dbbc0-12c4-11e9-b6ad-9cfd62dbb0a8_story.html
  10. I wish I could find it on YouTube, but there was a scene on oltl where Jean Randolph, after weeks of running the show, needed a rest and Viki re-emerged. Viki was utterly lost and frightened, she had no recall as she sat in the library at Llanfair wearing clothes she did not recognize and speaking to her children who made references to events of which she clearly had no memory. Erika Slezak played this scene with such subtle terror and cluelessness, tears welled up in my eyes. She was so scared and I so felt for her.
  11. Am I reaching by entertaining the idea that an amnesiac who doesn't even know who he is and is running and will probably be elected is a mildly creative gesture at political commentary re: the clown that is 45?
  12. Thanks for the info. So was Jason a crossover character from AW, or did he play another character before his second stint as Ted?
  13. RIP I used to watch What a Dummy on Saturday afternoons. There was an episode who are they were in front of the TV watching The Mothers-in-Law and made one of those tongue in cheek meta references. I loved her commentary on the Broadway Golden Age documentary.
  14. 😍😍😍 Over 30 years ago, and she looks even better today!
  15. Yeah, I wasn't sure how I felt about the Xander / Leo stuff. For all of the cuddly cableknit gays of our lives, a Leo comes along and the ignorant will run with this depiction of a slimey sex-crazed homo. Then there's the whole trade/gay for pay phenomenon which is very real, and there are plenty of narcissists like Xander who comprise that demo, and yet... I don't know if this show is daring enough to "jeopardize" even a peripheral character like Xander by letting him sleep with a man. If they ever want to up this guy's role and make him a hetero lead, he will always be dogged by that big slice of the fandom who will disparage him for being "GAY! 😲 " because they can't wrap their minds around the intricacies of sexuality. It's like they'd have to make him repent for any gay past.
  16. Even though Carmen's Australian, it was said that Iris had been living in England. Not unlike Stephanie Beacham and Kate O'Mara, I think Carmen benefited from the shine Joan Collins' Alexis created. AW seemed to borrow a few things from Alexis in crafting Carmen's Iris, who'd previously been a woman of leisure, not a corporate shark. Even her penthouse was practically the exact same layout as Alexis'. Carmen had played an Alexis/Racine (Paper Dolls) type in the Australian Skin Deep, a telefilm/pilot for an Aussie primetime soap that didn't take off.
  17. Yes, we saw the foyer, front door, and staircase with the updated '80s set. Looking at the '70s set, the drawing room is larger and we sometimes see the dining room. When Iris comes over, for example, we hear Louise let her in but never see her at the door. I quite like it actually, hearing voices from the next room.
  18. The actor playing Jason, wasn't he Iris' stepson, Ted? Welcome! Better late than never. 😉 Please continue to share your memories, those of us who weren't around for the golden age of soaps are truly appreciative.
  19. Years ago on the WoST website, a fan of '70s AW said that there was an IATSE issue related to door building. I can't speak to the veracity of this as I'm not on that side of the business. But apparently there was some sort of union snag that necessitated some sets never showing a front door, characters being heard or announced offstage before entering.
  20. I've been watching, I think it's pretty fun. I called it on Tommy Chong and Terry Bradshaw. I'm also guessing Donny Osmond and Gladys Knight. Oh, and Margaret Cho.

    Yeah, one of my FB friends posted it a couple weeks ago and it was love at first sight as I immediately got the Soul Glo reference. 😆 It is such a fun song and important image for girls.
  22. Dorian may not have been the eldest, but she certainly was the strongest, and most capable to helm the Cramer clan. Her two sisters suffered with mental illness and were institutionalized for decades. And while Todd got that $20+ million inheritance, Todd's money was not necessarily Blair's money. She did use her newfound wealth to launch Melador and the later company, but I wouldn't venture that her account balance rivaled her aunt's. Dorian had been left her own hefty share of Victor's money and assets. Dorian had that memorable line to Blair about there being two kinds of Cramer women: the fighters and the feelers. Addie, Melinda, and Cassie were the feelers who depended on the fighters, Blair, Kelly, and especially Dorian.
