Another World

Although for the most part I was done with AW by the time they ended, I was never really that invested in the character of Lila.  She was no Vicky or Cecile, although I understand having Lisa Peluso was an attempt I am guessing on bringing new eyes to the show.  Another "bi$%h that goes from conniving to a heroine is always a good plot line, but I guess I wasn't invested by this point.

Another World and Santa Barbara were two completely different soaps in my eyes.

 

Sorry, but I don't know what you mean by this.  Aren't all soaps completely different soaps?

I think they mean that the gap about the style of soap and the kind of writing between AW and SB was larger than, say, between AW and Y&R on one hand, or SB and Days of Our Lives for instance.
Which holds, although obviously thankfully soaps usually have a distinct identity (although late 90s AW's crime/medicine/fantastical-plot-by-an-archvillain formula felt very General Hospital by the end)

Thinking the same thing.  I don't understand what that comment meant.  We know they are completley different soaps.  Costner thinks SB is better than AW in his experience.  I am thinking there was a lot less drama and control also on SB than AW during his time he spent in Brooklyn.  I heard it was not easy working for P&G and AW during the 70'.s.

Exactly what FrenchBug82 said below:

I think that it has been said before that unfortunately soaps tended to chase each other when one had a successful storyline or type of character others would develop similar hoping lighting struck twice.  Sometimes it did, but often it did not.  AW was already a pale version of itself by the time it ended, just as today's soaps are pale versions of what they once were.

So I was reading some 1986 recaps and just had to wonder, did Larry & Clarice actually get an on-screen exit or was it mentioned after the fact?

They did not get a good bye scene. But, did you know that there was behind the scenes acrimony between the actors in the roles?

Not only did they not get a good bye scene I don't believe it was even mentioned that they left Bay City.

Thanks, wow I had always figured they’d at least gotten something, especially since the show was so heavy around Catlin at the time they left from what I have been reading. However Adam definitely quickly filled up Larry’s role in no time.

 

I think I knew that about Porter, was surprised that he came back for Mac’s funeral. Porter quit acting but before he did got cast in a second string villain role on Days to antagonize Justin and Adrienne late 89/early 90.

 

I suppose if Larry and Clarice had stayed any longer they both would’ve been victims of the Sin Stalker as a means to drop them.
