Thanks.

I'll definitely be looking into that trial because I know I don't have access to HBO Max, lol.

Also, on Ribeiro, sometimes I can't believe he was my brief childhood crush. I guess it could've been worse, it could've been Rick Schroeder.

Sad isn't it? Janet did throw shade at not seeing AMFV since Ribeiro took over the show. It's obvious Ribeiro was avoiding seeing her.

Well, I guess that makes two of us because I have never seen Ribeiro as host of the show. As nice a man as Bergeron is, I kind of faded from that show before Ribeiro took over hosting duties. It doesn't seem that Carlton was too far from his real personality, when I think about it.

Yeah, thanks, some of us work in industries like these (I have nothing to do with daytime television and never have, but I work in entertainment and know better than to shít where I eat). That's not the point. Work with who? Where? P&G soaps are gone. Does Locher even work for the parent company anymore? He has nothing to defend and no call to censor the actors.

 

Work with anyone. A lot of users here are nobodies hiding behind a fake persona on a message board so it's easy to [!@#$%^&*] on the past. But, as you said, you don't [!@#$%^&*] where you eat and the entire entertainment industry talks. If an actor wants to go on camera and be caught on cam for all eternity talking smack about your fellow employers, they'd find it hard to work with anyone. No one wants to hire an actor for a project who might go trash-talking it several years down the line. Actors from soaps are going to be working in theater, on short films, maybe a guest spot on a TV series, who knows. If they're going to publicly speak about a past job, it's in their best interest to speak positively.

 

Same goes in the "real world." If you're in a job interview and trash talk your employer/co-workers, you're likely not going to be the shortlist for who that company wants to hire. 

 

People here live in a land of critique and negativity...cuz it's a message board. It's not real life.

I'm not talking about the actors, who clearly want to speak on it. I'm talking about Alan Locher trying to shut them down from doing so just because he used(?) to work for Procter & Gamble when they were still in the soap business, which they are no longer. Let these professionals make their own choices.

I don't know. It's his show. He's the host. I think he's perfectly within his right to squelch any talk he seems inappropriate. Maybe you should contact these actors and interview them yourself? You might get more of what you're looking for?

Ah yes, that old chestnut. Thanks for stopping by.

 

You're welcome. But you know...continue to bitch and whine and moan over something you have no control. Enjoy it or not. Or do something about it. It's SOOOOOOO much easier to just complain on a message board though, isn't it?

LOL! You are too much, dude. I sincerely hope Alan Locher has sent you a fruit basket or complimentary item of your choice. People have been critiquing this guy in far more harsh terms than me for months before I said a word. I don't think he's the Antichrist but it's clear his knowledge of these shows beyond his professional purview and span of experience is limited, and he's functioning like he's still trying to rep for Goutman or P&G. It's not his place and it's unfortunate, that's all I'm saying. Go find another zoom host to avenge, please.

Not trying to avenge any zoom host. Just calling out a nobody whining about they're not getting to hear the interviews they want. Wah Wah Wah - you poor little thing. Who are you to say what Locher's place is? Just who do you think you are? The be all end all most knowledgable person of all time who gets to dictate to other people live their lives, interview actors, and create YouTube series? Stop watching these reunions if you don't like them. And let go whatever this vendetta you have against someone you don't even know. Is your life that empty?

At least it makes a change from hearing you and everyone else on this board rant about how much they despise a show that's been off the air for 10 years. You people are an absolute trip. Normally, I'm with Victoria Foxton - just scrolling through reading member's incessant complaining about how horrible As The World Turns was - except in the 60s and 70s where are there are no episodes to tear apart bit by bit. Sometimes, I just need to bitch slap the board. You all really are a bunch of pathetic wannabe soap opera writers/producers with no concept of what goes into creating it and would fail miserably at the job. But, you know, you're bored and have no lives so some of the most negative people on the planet have a spot to come to complain about how horrible soap operas are. And you wonder why TPTB don't give a [!@#$%^&*] about what y'all think and ignore you as much as possible????

 

If it weren't for the wonderful work Brolden does to track the episodes of ATWT and me feeling responsible to help him out since I'm watching the show in order from YouTube as much as I can, I wouldn't come here. But he's doing some admirable work and I want to help him with added episodes I've found or to clear up some questions he has. I usually read without commenting but sometimes you people are so nasty, vindictive, and hateful that I decide to join in - only it's aimed at the board members instead of a 10 year old television show.
