  1. Why do you feel it violated what Knots represented? I thought it was a mistake because Linda was a highlight to me in a season that's not my favorite (season 12) but that is a strong way of putting it.
  2. This is terrific! Whoever made this is so talented.
  3. I miss earlier WoST. It got crazier and crazier as the years went on. And so did its webmaster. Anyway, Carl thanks for posting this as well as the long Jelinda's theme in the ATWT thread. "Hold on to Love" and "Jelinda's Theme" are the most breathtaking soap themes IMO.
  4. This was a huge treat. The biggest treat for me was Anthony Herrera, damn he looked so so good back then. Of course he still looked good up until the end of ATWT but it was nice seeing him in his ~prime~. Justin Deas also looked way better back then, wtf happened to him The worst part of the episode was all the lame "quadruplets" jokes. They got old 4 times as fast as most bad puns. lolseewhatididthere.
  5. Why are you embarrassed? He is hot. As long as you're not an ATM he has no problem with you
  6. God this Chris was so awful. I didn't realize they had New York accents in Oakdale
  7. I don't know if you can really classify that as a "quit" though since TPTB didn't renew his contract and wanted him to go recurring. Since his reason for staying with ATWT was to maintain a steady paycheck, it makes sense that he had no interest in being recurring. And it must be hard to be a soap actor, since there is a lot of repetition, and we always hate it when TPTB rewrite the past... imagine how annoying it is for THEM, since they were the ones living it, and have to act like what they knew happened didn't happen.
  8. All I can think is that if this had aired twenty years later we would've complained about how the Walsh/Snyders had "RappaDavidson'd" ATWT
  9. I really liked this Chris (Paul Korver) and then Dylan Bruce but nobody ever lasted long in the role. I didn't like Bailey Chase, Ben Jorgenson, or whats-his-face-who's-always-on-soaps-when-they-get-canceled.
  10. Now you're almost right. On a soap today she wouldn't have had an abortion.
  11. The girl who played Tory was really good IIRC. It wasn't a well written storyline but she made it work. Knowing that these are on YouTube I will check them out later; no idea if they will be good or not. I remember finding them humorous at the time but we'll see.
  12. I actually don't mind that kind of thing, kind of breaking the fourth wall but in a cute way; ATWT did the same thing with Barbara when CZP was pregnant. They had other characters comment that maybe Barbara needed to go on a diet. And then right after CZP gave birth they wrote that Barbara was pregnant with Will so CZP ended up being pregnant for like two years.
  13. Floyd Boyd was a man, Guiding Light's biggest fan And he wanted to write for the show But his script got turned down and he left with a frown 'Cause he wasn't quite ready to go. He had yet to meet Reva, his favorite soap diva But Floyd had terrible luck! When he ran on the set, with disaster he met And now in Springfield he's stuck ^ Anyone else remember this? I do only vaguely and I have no idea whether it was good or totally lame.
  14. Ugh, Christel sucks, on all levels. I always knew she was a bad actress but apparently she is a shitty person too. Pathetic.
  15. Why am I not surprised? For whatever reason Y&R hates its black cast that brought it such success in the 90s. And Davetta was 100x better than Christel will ever be. Christel is annoying and always has been. I was livid when they brought her back.
  16. where are we getting the intel that Newcomb isn't that in to ATWT tho? I posted on an ATWT board with him back to like 2000? We were on ATWT.com then that got shut down by P&G and moved to ososunny.com and then eventually moved to weloveatwt.com -- I eventually left the community because it was too cliquy and Roger was one of the ringleaders in the clique. So he has been involved with the ATWT community for mad long for someone who isn't that in to the show.
  17. But if ATWT's DVD does well, P&G is likely to release its other soaps as well, Bell, Corday, and ABC are likely to notice and mimic them, etc. The "support the soap genre" mantra makes sense. That said I haven't bought it yet myself personally lol.
  18. God, these are actually all clunkers from what I recall. Seems to me like it went south earlier than I had remembered. I think replacing Carolyn Culliton with Jean Passanante was the jump the shark moment for Hogan's reign now that I think about it. Funny, too, because I loved Jean's first few months as solo headwriter, and her 2007 admittedly trash TV work was good to me as well.
  19. Watching some YouTube clips of early Sheffer.... it was fantastic then, and it's still fantastic now. Great writing that lets the actors shine. When do you guys think the honeymoon with Sheffer wore off? I consider him such a hack, and I have for so long, so it's weird to me that I used to consider him good and upon further review his early stuff is still good. For me, he was at his best in 2000 wrapping up Laiman's story lines and did an amazing job paying them off after they had seemingly dragged on forever. But 2001 as I recall was still good. I'm kinda fuzzy on what went on between the boathouse explosion and early 2002 spa disaster/scotland disaster/julia rapes jack disaster. I feel like somewhere in that 6 months it went downhill but I can't pinpoint it. Thoughts?
  20. This is ridiculous. The fact is, to be a mainstream Republican these days you HAVE to be intellectually inconsistent. Big government is bad unless we are making more laws about abortion or DADT, Obamacare sucks even though it's essentially identical to the Republican counterargument to Hillarycare, tax cuts are great but Obama wanting to extend pay roll tax cuts is bad, spending sprees are wrong and the Bush presidency never happened. I could go on and on. Max is making more sense than most Republicans. The fact that you seem to believe that you have to agree with the Republican mantra du jour which makes no sense when you really look at it to be an "ideologically consistent" conservative is what's really weak. You're basically asking Max to go with truthiness.
  21. Well, it's not the same thing though. MSNBC reported the OWS story. Fox created the Tea Party story.
  22. OK, so they are reporting the news, what is the problem? The situation with Fox and the Tea Party was different; they actively grew the Tea Party and MADE it a story.
  23. But is MSNBC actively organizing and promoting Occupy Wall Street rallies, like FoxNews did with Tea Party rallies? .... no. That's why MSNBC is liberal-tilted news, and FoxNews is a wing of the Republican party. If only the Democrats didn't suck so much at campaigning and playing the system
  24. When they had Sex and the City wardrobe infiltrate Guiding Light, people weren't in to it. They got so many complaints. I can still picture Marah's RIDICULOUS hat. I do think it's hilarious that if you go to Brooklyn now, you see a bunch of hipsters wearing flannel. The last time flannel was in, New York City eschewed the movement and stuck to wearing all black. Just funny to me.
  25. What about spiteful replacements? When they had Carmen Duncan fill in as Lisa it certainly seemed like it was done at LEAST in part to punish Eileen Fulton. Lisa had had little to do for years at that point and suddenly they needed her when Eileen Fulton was not available? Certainly seemed like a spiteful move.
