No one f.ucks with Ms. McKinsey! I'm surprised at just how great the picture quality is in this video.

I think this episode was released on DVD. It is on one of the Guiding Light DVDs.

Love Bev, but I find myself getting pissed at Alex in this arc even though she is in the right to react the way she is. It is just that dastardly a** Roger Thorpe and MZ's excellent portrayal of him, which makes me root for him when I shouldn't be. 

 

Is that bad? :ph34r:

This episode was probably the zenith of the Calhoun/Curlee era. It is criminal that Beverlee McKinsey did not get a lead actress nomination at the Daytime Emmy's for any of her early 1990s work on GL. Is there a story behind her being snubbed?

 

There's a little sadness in seeing this storyline again, knowing that Michael Zaslow and Beverlee McKinsey are no longer with us.

I've never heard anything about the reason why Bev was snubbed, but it is weird. I always trumped it up as a network thing--that the academy always preferred rewarding ABC soap actresses over CBS and NBC. 

 

I think it is criminal that Bev never won an EMMY given the material she's had and how she's performed it.

I always thought it was odd when Beverlee and Vicky Wyndham were nominated repeatedly in the late '70s but would usually lose out to other women, even AW women. It makes me wonder if there was some dislike.

Which I find to be ludicrous as they were two of the strongest actresses to be on daytime TV.

Reva's return promo!

 

 

I think that promo may have been from when she and Buzz were married.

Bev also accomplished an incredible feat if you think about it - Iris was such a definitive and iconic soap role, to then have similar success and create another strong character is not an easy task. I wonder how AW fans felt seeing her in a different role at this point. I know she given the choice to return to AW as Iris in the late 80's, but refused and wanted to continue as Alexandra. 

 

GL had such an amazing cast of women during this time - Bev, Maureen Garrett, Maeve Kinkead, Ellen Parker, etc. All so different, but amazing in their own right.
