I remember when the Hughes family recieved the news of Will/Pa/Grandpa Hughes' death. Carol Demming Hughes Stallings answered the telephone, and Mrs. Kopechne/Hughes informed Caol or his death. Carol then informed the others.
What I do not remember is an on-screen funeral for Pa. It seems natural that there would have been one, and I guess that I missed it. Was one shown?
Older perfomers Santos Ortega and William Johnstone (Judge James Lowell) were dropped when the show was expanded to a full hour. The reason given was that the older performers may have not been able to stand a show that had doubled in length.
However, at some time in the 1980s (after I had stopped watching the show), Judge Lowell was brought to the show. Later, the actor did pass away. Was there any acknowledgement of the judge's death?
When Ethel Remey died (but had not left the show before her death), the role of Alma was temporarily recast. Then, Alma departed to take a lengthy cruise.
I know she's likely not interested, but man, I'd throw all the money in the world at Lisa Ling to get her back. It was interesting she lamented not being able to discuss certain topics back then but now they do.
This has been Days for years. And most other soaps on network television have gone the same way. Don't hold your breath expecting some new renaissance of quality, because until these soaps move to streaming if they ever do there's no chance IMO.
Lex, I think wanting to watch a quality show that you enjoyed is perfectly normal.
Longing for your banana clip is nostalgia.
Longing to wear shoulder pads under lace sleeves is an insanity that we need to prevent happening ever again.
I agree with this. She and the entire Andrade family should have been more prominent. And Santana's addiction story is actually being played quite well. But as I've said, I'm over her by this point and no longer care. She's been too heartless for too long for me to care.
