  1. And since when is Carter his “best friend”?
  2. Somewhere in this thread, @DRW50 posted a picture of Nancy Pinkerton standing next to Dorian’s portrait that replaced Eugenia‘s over the mantle. Someone posted that a new portrait in Claire Malis’ likeness did appear on the show. I’m not sure why it was taken down as it’s noticeably absent in the episode posted. Strasser’s infamous Dorian portrait was actually intended to be a newly commissioned one, it was a gift from Cassie. At 8:13, a little more Malis (with Jane Badler as Melinda) for those who may have missed it: https://youtu.be/iICqNUtA4ug
  3. “Bitch! ... Bitch!” Lmfao!

    What a [!@#$%^&*] brat. Sara asked a great question and gave Megan a wonderful opportunity to provide an insightful answer. This makes her look like someone incapable of a spontaneous reaction, like she was miffed that she didn’t have time to prepare her response.
  5. That Zoey is a real piece of work. When she just walked right into the unlocked front door of the Forrester mansion without so much as a knock... this bold ass heifer. I don’t like how this makes Carter look like a dolt. And here you have Donna salivating over him, well B&B stop telling us how great of a catch he is and give him a romance of substance. Did anyone catch how Steffy cut the obgyn off before she could say the word period/cycle/monthly or what have you? It felt like a very pointed writing choice and seemed so odd for a daytime serial aimed at women where ads for feminine products are famously advertised. Lol at the closed captioning. Bill quipped that Liam is “the man dressed like a grape” and the captioning read “the manager who is like a grape”. Kudos to B&B’s writing team if this is what they’re going for, but the scenes with Bill and Katie and basically any scene with Liam really drive home the old adage, “Men ain’t sh!t.” Just completely selfish, manipulative, petty, jealous men who bandage their bruised egos with another vagina.
  6. I guess all of the above, but I think more specifically, it’s Dorian and Larry’s contentious history at the hospital.
  7. Same [!@#$%^&*] different decade good actors never get what they deserve while the shittiest of them are drowned in green.
  8. @DRW50I think you can back me up on this from articles you’ve posted, but the show lost Nancy Pinkerton because they refused to meet her salary request when renewing her contract. She walked on her own accord. Other accounts of history note the show’s “necessity” to recast in order to retain the character of Dorian as no viewer could forgive and forget her egregious acts while looking at Pinkerton’s punim day after day. I’ve listened to some of her audio recorded episodes, but this is only the second video of Pinkerton as Dorian that I have seen, and I find her transfixing... her voice and speech, those deep brown eyes, and that palpable subtext. There’s a potently dangerous undercurrent to her most benign gestures. She’s presenting kindness, even sweetness, but she’s not to be trusted. I wish Pinkerton and Malis could have been interviewed for the oral history. Malis reminds me of Meg Foster with those eyes. She looks sleek and chic for the most part. For a moment there it seemed like they were going out of their way to make her sympathetic but then she had that Angie Dickinson dressed to kill moment with the accountant and that made me wonder just who was Dorian at this time. I would kill to see more episodes of this era.
  9. Good Lord, I haven't thought of Claudia Cohen in decades, and you're absolutely right, I exclusively knew her from Regis and Kathie Lee. Nice subtle touch of tape on Arthur's glasses. Look at Phoebe on her Trevor Dillon flip phone. Interesting seeing her interact with Isabelle in the form of Pat Barry who played her sister-in-law, Peg English.
  10. Wow, I wonder when was the last time soap actors were afforded the luxury of a table read.
  11. A hardcover of Eight Years in Another World is a rare expensive find, so I wanted to share that it's available for Kindle. I just bought a cyber copy for a little under ten bucks.
  12. I haven't watched these episodes yet, but I remember Lee Chamberlin (sporting long blonde locks) made some appearances as Pat when Angie and Frankie moved to Corinth. Alimi was such a good Frankie. I'd like to forget that Jason Olive was ever cast.
  13. Thanks for sharing this, and I agree with you about the narration. I like their kitschy retro kitchen. What surprises me is seeing Alex portrayed as the younger sibling. Was that long established? It certainly never felt that way to me, nor was it based on the various actors' ages.
  14. It's funny how once upon a time my ex's birthday being on AMC's anniversary was such a sweet thing and how now it's so not.

  15. Are there any episodes from 1963 available? I recently discovered that yet another former teacher of mine appeared on the show and it would be a hoot for me to see her. Her name is Joan Potter and she played Linda Ward Carter in a week-long arc.
  16. One time Oprah quipped, "Y'all think y'all Erica Kane with all these men..." I did a play called Jefferson's Garden which dealt with this subject. Sordid stuff. Sally was a CHILD, early teens while Jefferson was in his forties.
  17. I hadn't realized that he was on the show until I saw the 20/20 special on Rebecca Schaeffer. Hensley was in the clip they showed of her time on OLTL.
  18. Just wanted to add that I also hate Liam and I'm in love with Scott Clifton's mother for that message, right there with her. The dog starting to bark at her laughing took me out.
  19. Thanks for sharing! Lately, she's been popping up in my IG feed.
  20. ITA. I was very excited when I read a SOD interview with Rauch where he talked about reintroducing the black Spauldings, plural. I thought it was a bad move to kill off the senior Victoria and send Vicky to Springfield on her own. The deep-rooted resentment had more than enough justification as is, it didn't need the "help" of her mother's death as motivation. I would've given Vicky a brother as well, hell, Terrell Tilford could've played him. He would've made for a better Spaulding than a David recast. I also resent that the show killed an opportunity to cast a marvelous biracial/black actress of a certain age to play Victoria, created by Kim Hamilton. (When Joan Collins started playing Alex, I had pipe dreams of Diahann Carroll or Shirley Bassey joining her as alive after all Victoria.)
  21. She was also the third actress to play Natalie and Janet's mother, Wilma, on AMC.
  22. Some literal LOL today at the sheer ridiculousness and skewed moral center. When Eli attempted to arrest John, I shouted, "Are you kidding me!?" When Marlena went to the chapel and softly prayed that Jan was okay, I blurted, "FVCK JAN!" A woman says she killed your daughter, and suddenly we're apologizing for choking the bitch out?? I'd expect nothing less. "I don't know what came over me..." Uh, the FATHER came over you. Philip looks rode hard and put away wet. This is the same character who's an amputee right, back when the dude from The Real World played him?
  23. Of course the timeline is off, but my gut reaction was Daniel Kennedy's Petey. I thought Nelsen *was* gay and when I saw your post I sort of RME at what I perceived to be an art imitates life copout. [Charlotte Rae]Guess I was WRO-onng...[/Charlotte Rae]
  24. He and his former HR ruin everything they touch from the past which is why I'm so perplexed when fans go fantasy recasting when a new actor is announced.
