Unfortunately most of this social awareness was lip service. 

 

P&G and CBS clearly were only as engaged as they could get accolades and ratings but that doesn't take away from the individual performances. The actors were no less sincere and committed.  I felt those scenes.

Michael Zaslow's Emmy winning episode

Great episode..unfortunately the creeping in of Buzz mania was starting but the rest of the show was tight. I didn't think Barbara Crampton was bad as Mindy and I hated her as Mindy at the time.  I think Lewis Arlt who was subbing for JVD would have made a good Ed recast.

There's an episode from 1993 where Harley and A.C. are named as Marina Coopers godparents.  A.C. is pledging to be there for Marina as he would if she were his own child.  

I wasn't watching when they were a couple but are you telling me that Marina was with her godfather?!!  Oh how disgusting!  These soaps could really write some terrible material especially in their later years.

I was barely watching at the time, but I am still unsure of which was more disgusting. Marina with her godfather Mallet or Marina with the man who could have been her father, Alan-Michael? Both were creepy on a level the show rarely got to.
