Yeah that would be about correct. New Zealand was always roughly four years behind, but the Aussie soap magazines always had articles and later summaries for Y&R that suggested Australia was about six months ahead of us.
THANK YOU, CURTIS!!! GATHER MICHAEL AND WILLOW ALL THE WAY TOGETHER. lol. Good to see someone in Nina's corner.
I have never had any use for RM as Ryan Lavery except for early Ryan...but his Drew is foine. lol. Keep him in those blue jeans.
ROBERT!!!! BACK AT LAST!!!
Other than that, yeah to a little of what was said in the September thread about adding the climax to the stalker storyline to the 'abrupt end' list. All that start and stop. All that momentum. All that building. And even the actor playing Spencer can't sell that sudden turn to confessing even if the dialogue says that he did it because Sonny's men was about to hurt his dad.
What I have been finding interesting has been that the fallout for all of these anticlimatic endings (the stalker storyline, Nixon Falls, etc) has been...interesting.
Like I wish the Mike/Sonny storyline could have gone on muuuuch longer. But it does seem that there are hints that Mike is not all gone. And it would nice for all of his determination that the 'ghost' of Mike continues to haunt Sonny. Since Jason and Carly did not sleep together, I am all for those 'feelings' to go poof to get back to Jason/Britt myself.
The end of the stalker storyline ended with lines drawn where I am at with Trina vs Esme. I'm down for that.
And I'm liking the built to Drew's return. The Valentin/Anna scenes in Italy made me so swoon. I still can't believe how much I am cheering for them because Valentin had swagger in those scenes. Also interesting that when put against a major actor like CS, someone has mellowed out of 'dramatic' speak. However...the fact that this has slowly, but surely been building at the expense of the other interesting storylines instead of alongside them...makes one think...hmmm since we got CM as Recast Drew, we might want to speed this up so let's kill all the other storylines off. To that I said...should have kept them all together so all the stories shine...not just pushing one. Or...meh.
Be careful! I had never heard of that site until now, seeing you refer to it. I just tried to go to and open it, but my virus software blocked the site completely.
And thank heavens, that remained its theme song in the DVD release!
Ahh, Disney Plus, yet another service I do not have. (I don't subscruibe to cable.)
Well, Singer did become a somewhat recognizable name thanks to The Beastmaster and V. He became very popular in MY house for looking so sexy in a loincloth and tight jeans, LOL!
Thank you for sharing! Maree has told this story before. It seems to be the only story she is willing to share about Mary. Nobody else from SFT will share even that much. Most of the time, when asked about Mary -- members of the cast respond with vague comments such as "Oh, dear Mary," or "Sweet Mary, what a joy." Nothing specific whatsoever. I have heard genuinely positive comments about Mary from members of the Guiding Light cast, but nothing more than vague comments from anyone connected with Search for Tomorrow.
