August 27-31st thread
I don't usually start the thread, but I thought I do one simply to post a video also. Who knows we might have a minor discussion about the past.

This YouTube clip is titled Dearly Beloved Part 13. Starts with a unique music montage while on location. It's apart of a episode in which Reva is hit by a car (she has the most unortnate luck with cars). I don't know much of what is going on here, even after doing some research, but from what I was able to read up on is that some guys from some organization (Diamondhead?) are out to kill Josh. They try to run him over, but instead they hit Reva. Apparently it's from a time when the show was forced to stray away from character driven stories and focus more on adeventure oriented tales.

Getting back on topic...

WTF is up with Dinah?

Add me in as one who uberloved the Billy and Vanessa scene today. (Dan thanks for warning us!)

I don't believe they've ever shown Maureen on the show.

Today was the first day I've taken Buzz and Lillian seriously as a couple. No lie. They were so cute and fun today. At first I didn't really know what to think about them. I mean it's nice that Lillian is finally getting some, but it seemed to me that DK was doing it because he simply had two single actors/characters over the age of 50(one being the head of his favorite family). Now, I think I might just be liking them.

Gina Tognoni continues to amaze me. What did everyone think about Matt and Dinah's kiss today?

Just when I thought I was liking something DK had written, he goes and drop the ball with the Cyrus and Alex plot. I'm not mad because he's back to his old ways, I'm upset because Alex would never be this stupid where Cyrus is concerned. At least not the real Alex.

Doris and Buzz bickering is quite fun too.

Matt kissing Dinah is absolutely disgusting. My hope is that this is DK's way of getting rid of Matt. He used to be an upstanding lovable guy...

Vanessa looks great! Never really cared too much for her and Billy, but they are nice together. This might be fun.

Monday's show kicked ass, and today (Wednesday) is a huge EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE day. I don't like the Wednesday's shows, but when it's all about Jeffeva, I get all choked up. I cannot wait to get home today. This is completely must see!

Gina is doing a fantastic job, but she still bugs the hell out of me!

Who knows, you guys might be right about Alex.

I just wish they could have thrown a scene in there with Alex tossing that bracelet Cyrus gave to her in the trash once he had left the room. It would surprise me really to find out that Alex was onto Cyrus all along.

    • Apologies Slick- not updating my somewhat disorganized lists. Michael Fairman THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS   Patrick "Murph" Murphy   2008-14  2017 recurring DAYS OF OUR LIVES  Mr Schroeder 1977 Wesley Ann Pfenning THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS   Lauralee 'Lorie' Brooks August 1980 Temp replacement for Jaime Lyn Bauer
    • I sure don't pretend to have expert recall, lol.   In the first episode, Sally McGuire famously said, "Kind of a drag, isn't it.  Being stuck in a place like Genoa City.  God, I feel so restless."  In the same episode, the truck driver told Brad Eliot, "Genoa City -- nice-sized town, but I prefer St. Paul.  That's where the family is."     We were given the idea from Day One that Genoa City was a fairly *small* to *mid-sized* Midwestern metropolis, not nearly as big as a Chicago or even a Detroit or Minneapolis.   In the early 1990s, Victor Newman advised Hope Wilson that Genoa City was comparable to Wichita, Kansas -- population about 400,000 in 1990, with a metro population of around 500,000.   The high-rises that I remember being featured from early on were the Genoa City Hotel and Genoa Towers.  There was a restaurant called "The Embers" in one of them (Genoa Towers, I believe). Lorie Brooks moved into a penthouse, circa 1978, which was located at 247 East Chestnut.  Lorie's unit was #2500, indicating her apartment was on the 25th floor.  Vanessa Prentiss jumped to her death from the balcony in 1981.  During Lorie's trial, they gave the address about a zillion times -- "247 East Chestnut #2500".  This was an inside joke of Bill Bell's, because his co-writer, Kay Alden, resided in real-life at 247 East Chestnut #2500 in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago.  From Lorie's balcony, we could see a cluster of several high-rises -- not a Chicago by any stretch of the imagination, but more a Wichita.   Jabot's corporate offices were on 4th Street.  The "corporate suites" were on the 12th floor, indicating the building was likely 12 stories.  Kevin Bancroft, an architect, was hired to design a new high-rise (Newman Towers) in 1981.  Much ado was made about Newman Towers being 35 stories, among the tallest in the city.  The address given for Newman Towers was 7800 Melrose, another Bill Bell inside joke -- Y&R was recorded at 7800 Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles.  Paul moved his office into Newman Towers to "upgrade his image".  As someone mentioned, Nikki took an apartment in Newman Towers to "have a place in town to spend the night" when she "didn't feel like driving back to the ranch"; instead, her apartment became a love nest with Jack Abbott.  Victor and Diane, during their marriage, lived on the top floor of Newman Towers.  The show did a few remotes in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, back in the 1980s and early 1990s.  Evidently the production staff felt Pittsburgh mirrored what we were seeing on-screen -- cold and snowy, good-sized Rust Belt metropolis.  I believe Pittsburgh's population was around 500,000 at the time, comparable to the "Wichita-sized city" Victor described to Hope.   In the early 2000s, there were some "establishing shots" filmed around Charlotte, North Carolina.   Not sure why they selected Charlotte over Pittsburgh.  Probably figured found a couple of buildings there on which "Newman Towers" and "Jabot Cosmetics" could be airbrushed easily.  
    • Yeah, they played it wrong with them last time including the idiotic engagement to Jax (a go-to Ron always goes for with returning characters for no reason and did with Scott and Laura in an equally ridiculous subplot around the same time - there was no way those two would reunite again). But Brenda raising hell in town, antagonizing Carly, reconnecting with A.J. and Robin, even the Michael tease all worked for me because it was about her being central, able to be plugged in anywhere and shaking up the canvas. That is what she is best at and what she can do. Sonny has to come to her where she lives and especially after what happened to their marriage.
    • I mean maybe RH and Vanessa would pop off in chemistry lol.. I actually wouldn't be surprised.   I honestly don't need Brenda in random pairings but I need some movement on Sonny's part to not be the worst.  Because I feel like the always put them back together on popularity with zero movement in the actual lovestory.  And I do feel like the show plays Brenda as so lovelorn for Sonny..which fine, but Sonny is a actual trash bag fire with like 17 kids from 17 moms so...........
    • Janet Wood can be found on page 105. I'll add more to an updated profile in the a.m.      Bobby Doran is on page 210. I added 2 movies there.  Maybe more pics Thursday. I'll add the Bob Bailey, Paul Ford and Jeanne Bates  info  after I add movies/ Broadway to them. Researched Paul Geary  and Jack Wells   +  Stephen Kay of GH and Days newcomer Helen Day.  @Bright Eyes  I'll have Max Ehrich and Cam Gigandet tomorrow, Friday the latest
